The White Star clipper ship Mermaid arrived in this port on her second visit, on Wednesday afternoon. She is too well known among us to need description, but we may mention that she is no longer commanded by Captain White, but by Capt. R A. Kerr. The former has the large ship the Blue Jacket, and may possibly bring her down here before the wool season closes. The Mermaid left the Downs on the 22nd of July, and arrived in Hobson's Bay, Melbourne, on the 14th of October. Left Melbourne on the 9th November, and reached Auckland on the 22nd. Starting again on the 6th instant, she took a week to come down the coast, but has anticipated the the steamer, to which, however, the mails were entrusted. On the arrival of the Mermaid in Hobson's Bay, Capt. Kerr was presented with a testimonial from his passengers, consisting of a very handsome silver cup, accompanied by the following address, signed by 42 of all classes on behalf of themselves and their families.
