The dredge No. 222 is working at the end of the George street Pier, at which it is proposed to berth the steamer Fenstanton on her arrival. Wool for that vessel has already been taken into the Company's shed at the Port.
The barque Mennock was towed to sea yesterday afternoon, and sailed for London with the following cargo:-

3422 bales wool 	68,440
30 bales sheepskins 	    600
9 bales rabbitskins 	    234

From all accounts from Home we learn that last year has been the most prosperous year for steam freight yet known. This has been doubtless owing in a great measure to the tonnage tied up in the transport service, in an unusually slack time, relieving the market of a very large amount, which doubtless would have had a depressing influence, especially on the long trades, such as out to these Colonies, China &c. The rates paid ranged from 16s to 27s 6d, the major portion being at about 19s or 20s per gross ton, those boats which had the best 'tween decks, giving of course the best accommodation for horses and troops, having a preference. The highest rates was only paid for boats such as the Orient and others like her, fitted in palatial style.

OAMARU April 3rd.

A preliminary inquiry into the stranding of the schooner Friendship was held here today by the Collector of Customs. Evidence was given to the effect that the vessel was driven to this port by stress of weather, and that the accident occurred through a heavy sea striking the rudder and smashing the wheel before the vessel had reached shelter. The Harbour master stated that owing to the heavy sea no boat could go out to render assistance. The vessel was insured for 300.

The ship Invercargill left Port Chalmers yesterday morning for the Bluff, the s.s. Kopatai towing her round to that port, where she will complete her loading for a Home port.

The s.s. Waitaki was floated out of the Graving Dock yesterday morning. She sailed for the evening for Timaru.

The ship Waitangi has only about 50 tons of dead weight left on board, and has taken in a portion of her stiffening ballast. She is in splendid order and reflects great credit on her indefatigable chief officer, Mr Bo_gard.

pg 12
Mr Colin Allan has received advice by mail that the majority of the immigrants who embarked by the Wild Deer re-embarked on February 17th by the Caroline, which sailed from the Clyde on February 20th. A few did not proceed owning to temporary ill health caused by exposure, & c., or because they were deterred by their exposure on board the Wild Deer from attempting the voyage at present. Those who remained behind will be sent on by the Forfarshire. In addition to the Wild Deer's shipwrecked passengers, about 50 others proceeded by the Caroline, making the vessels complement 235 souls, equal to 213 statute adults. Dr Johnston is in charge.
