There is a great want of a local steamer to attend on vessels outside the bar at Hokitika; the Favourite having left, there is now not a steamer in the port for the purpose. There were thirteen sailing vessels and one steamer off the port on the 20th inst., waiting to discharge cargo and passengers. Amongst the number were the following:- John Bullock, Susannah Booth, Mount Alexander, Phoenix, Maid of Erin, Three Brothers, Sir Francis Drake, Lloyd's Herald, and the Despatch.

The following disasters to the shipping at Hokitika, have occurred since the last trip of the Lady Darling, on the 25th May; ruby, screw steamer, driven on the beach, but likely to be get off with the appliances now to hand. The schooners Margaret and Caroline, Three Sisters, Jane Williams, Sarah, Juno and the Midge have all been driven on the beach, condemned and sold. The Mary Ann Christina is also ashore, but not yet broken up.

The paddle steamboats Bruce and Nelson, lately driven ashore outside the bar, are both likely to be got off with the machinery which has arrived for the purpose. Large numbers of workmen are daily at work on the vessels.

The Exodus - The tide of emigration from Ireland shows no sign of ebbing. On the 12th hundreds of people of all ages, from the grey-headed grandfather to the child in arms, poured into Queenstown for embarkation in the National Company's fine steamer Louisiana, en route from Liverpool for New York. Hundreds more are expected to go by the Inman steamer the next day. Emigration from Ireland to America has totally changed its aspect. When the tender leaves the pier with its human freight a hearty cheer breaks out from the emigrants, which is generally responded to on shore, and a moist eye or sorrowful face is seldom seen among the throng.
