The s.s. Waitaki arrived at Port Chalmers at 9.30 a.m. yesterday.
She left Timaru at 4 p.m. on Thursday, and encountered strong S.S.W. winds and a high sea during the passage. Captain White reports that about 1 p.m. on the 22nd a strong S.S.W. squall passed over Timaru, and did considerable damage to the shipping there. The stern mooring of the Waitaki first gave way, and she swung on to the ship Ugglan's moorings, doing considerable damage to the Waitaki's rail. Next the barque Rewa broke adrift from her moorings and fouled the Ugglan, carrying away that vessel's rudder, spanker-boom, and steering gear, doing at the same time considerable damage to her own head-gear.
An attempt was made by the steamers Titan and Waitaki to tow the Ugglan closer in, but owing to the strong gale and heavy sea the attempt was given up, as the ship was riding steadily; while the Waitaki was compelled to slip her anchor with 75 fathoms chain, together with her rope moorings, and stand to sea as above.

The Westland left the port in splendid trim, and will no doubt
make a rapid passage Home. We trust Captain Moffatt may have bon voyage.
As some comments have been made as to the length of the British King's passage out to Wellington, it is only fair to point out that she has come out to New Zealand in shorter time than any previous steamer. Even the Mongol's famous passage to Port Chalmers - 49½
Days net steaming time-was nearly two days longer than that of the British King, which was slightly under 48 days. This is not bad work, especially considering the adverse weather.-Post.
