The New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company (Limited) have received advice by cable from their London office that the frozen sheep per s.s. Ionic are all believed to be in good order, and that they have placed 100 carcasses out of their consignment at 7 and 3/4d per lb.
The New Zealand Refrigerating Company have received the following cablegram from London, dated 28th inst., regarding the sale of the Ionic's cargo of frozen mutton:-
"The meat is turning out in very good order, and is realising an average of 7 and 3/4d. The market has a declining tendency".
No other shipping for this date.

The brig Thomas and Henry is to be used as a
receiving vessel at Port Chalmers for the steamers for the New Zealand
Shipping Company. She is undergoing an overhaul prior to being employed on
her new service.
The ship Dunedin has put out 260 tons of cargo, which is turning out in splendid order.
The barque Gleniffor is discharging the last of her deadweight cargo.
The ship Auckland is rapidly filling up, and has already taken in 321 bales wool, 184 bales rabbitskins, 7 bales leather, 6 bales basils, __16 sacks grain, 15_6 cases meat, 400 casks tallow, 362 hides, 6pkgs sundries and a quantity of horns.

The ship Waimate has met quick despatch. She
is entirely clear of her inward cargo, and has taken in 4700 sacks of grain.
Weather permitting, she will be towed round to Timaru today.
Besides the cargo taken in at Port Chalmers by the British King (says the Press), there was shipped at this port 754 bales and 267 pockets of wool, 554 casks tallow, 6439 sacks wheat, 37_ sacks grass seed, 398 sacks beans, 60 casks pelts, 1826 carcasses mutton, 26 bales leather, 27 bales basils, 37 bales flax, 2 bales tow, 26 cases rennet, 4 cases hematite, 106 cases preserved rabbits, 47 tierces beef, and 350 cases meats.
The steamer Wanaka showed up on Sunday morning, at half-past 8 o'clock, from Wellington, after a fearful passage, the head seas encountered being, as Captain Neville describes them, about as bad as they make them. The steamer left Wellington at 3.15. p.m. on Friday, but did not pass Cape Campbell until 10 o'clock at night. She was kept at it, however, until 1 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, when it was found impossible to make any further safe progress against the fearful weather, and the vessel had to shelter under the Kaikoura Peninsula. There she remained for six hours, when a fresh start was made, and Lyttelton Heads sighted yesterday morning, the vessel reaching the wharf as above stated. She brought three passengers and mails for transfer to the s.s. British King, but that vessel would be then in the neighbourhood of 200 miles on her journey to Rio Janeiro, having left 16 hours before the Wanaka arrived.

Captain Greig, of the Government Schooner Kokeno, employed in the preservation of sealing during the close season, reports to the Secretary of the Marine Department, under date August 16, that he had been detained at Port Pegasus, Stewart Island, from August 8, waiting for the weather to moderate sufficiently to enable him to start on a cruise to the Auckland Isles. This detention was caused through strong gales of wind, blowing principally from between south and west. Occasionally the wind would back round to north-west for an hour or two, with heavy rain and falling barometer, and then would change again to the south-west, and blow with great violence. At 2 a.m. on the 16th it was from the south, and at mid-day was blowing a heavy gale from the north-west, with pouring rain, and barometer at 29.0. All was well on board the vessel.

The periodical inspection of the U.S.S. Company's steamer
Hauroto took place yesterday, when Mr Crawford, Government
inspector of machinery, made a searching examination of the vessel. The crew
were exercised in boat drill, in which they showed considerable efficiency.
All the boats are fitted with Douglas' patent lowering apparatus, and were
put over the side in a very smart manner. Mr Todd, chief officer, is to be
congratulated on the discipline he maintains. It is almost unnecessary to
add that her engine-rooms were in splendid order, and that she passed a very
The repairs to the s.s. Rotomahana are progressing very rapidly, and it is quite possible she will be hauled out of dock towards the end of this week. The whole of her bottom plates, which were injured, have been furnaced and placed in position, while the boss of the sternpost is being rapidly proceeded with. When her repairs are finished, we shall be able to say that this is undoubtedly the biggest job ever turned out in New Zealand.
The ship Dunedin has met with excellent despatch. Her fore and main holds are clear of cargo, and she has only some 400 tons of deadweight left on board. It is probable she will commence taking in frozen mutton today.

The ship Dunedin took in the first of her
cargo of mutton yesterday, in the shape of 240 splendid carcasses.
The Oamaru Mail states that the dredge is now doing good work in deepening the site for the new wharf, and having broken through a hard superficial bed of shingle, is working well into the bine(?) clay beneath. A portion of the ground has been deepened to 20ft at low water.
THE GRAFTON ASHORE.
Westport, September 11.
The s.s. Grafton still lies where she first stranded, on the flat on the north side of the river, a considerable distance inside the bar. She is high and dry at low tide, but the surf causes her to roll a little at high water. In all cases where hawsers have been passed to her from other steamers(?) they have parted. Other suitable appliances have now been telegraphed for to Wellington, and will arrive in time for use during the spring tides, which will be of very little practical use until the end of the week; consequently nothing can now be done until then. Fifty tons of cargo still remain on board, 40 tons having been thrown over the side, including Greymouth stu_, and the balance has been landed and stored. The jettisoned cargo, consisting of flour, bran &c, was collected by the residents on the beach as it came ashore and taken possession of by them, but the agents of the ship now advertise that the goods must be accounted for. A general average bond has been prepared, and freight and 1[0?6?] per cent of the invoice value of the consignment collected from the local consignee. Some, however, decline to pay, and the goods are therefore detained. The steamer is leaking slightly.
THE SCHOONER DUNEDIN.
Greymouth, September 11.
The mate, cook, and two hands, comprising the crew of the schooner Dunedin, refuse to go to sea in the vessel, on the ground, as they allege, that she is unseaworthy, and making too much water. It appears that the crew are shipped by the month, and have not signed articles, their month having just expired. There is some difficulty in getting them to go to sea, and it is not easy to get a crew here. The harbour-master got the vessel pumped out, and after being allowed to stand for an hour, found she had made an inch and a half of water. So pronounced the vessel, but the crew still declined to go in her. She has about 100 tons of coal on board. The master has declined to pay the crew off, but from the way they have been shipped there appears to be no power to compel them to go to sea.
THE BARQUE REWA.
The barque Rewa being now 15[?][2?] days from this port for the United Kingdom, considerable anxiety is felt for her safety. She left Timaru on the 15th of April under the command of Captain D G Thomson, who had his wife with him. Her consisted of G. W. de la Mare, chief officer; [B?] Thomson, second officer; T. Verge, [S?] Kongbe(?), T. Jeffrey; W. Berry; . W. Rodn_y, H. Foxall, P. Westpenny, [P?F?] Moore, J. Tippie, and A Johnson. The Rewa (formerly named the Hope) is an iron barque of 494? Tons register. Last year, besides changing her name, she changed owners, Messrs [G?] Bethell and Co. being the purchasers, and we believe this firm are her present owners. The Rewa loaded a cargo of grain at this port last April on account of Messrs Roberts, Paxton and Co, of Christchurch, clearing at the Customs, Timaru for Queenstown or Falmouth for orders on April 1_, and sailing the same night. Although the Rewa has now been over five months at sea, we still hope that she will arrive safe, especially as more powerful vessels which left about the same time have made exceptionally long passages, extending in on instance to over 130 days.
At Lloyd's a premium of 70 guineas has been paid effect fresh insurances upon the ship Loch [Dee?], which left Lyttelton, New Zealand, on March 9?, with a cargo of wheat, and has not since been heard of.

On Wednesday morning, during the height of the storm encountered by the s.s. Rotorua, some of the passengers enjoyed a very grand sight, the steamer being lighted from stem to stern by St. Elmo's Fire. The lights from the top of each mast head and the peak were doubtless looked upon by old salts as reassuring, but the somewhat rare phenomenon was viewed by others with admiration, not wholly untinged by uneasy apprehensions.- Nelson Colonist.

After incessant demands for years past that proper life-saving appliances might be placed at the Port Chalmers wharves, grapnels, lifebuoys, and other similar apparatus have been placed on the Bowen Pier. This is a step in the right direction, but there still exists the necessity of fixing chains along the whole of the hawser piles on the different piers.
A wreck chart for Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand, for the year 1882, has been published by the Merchant, Shipping and Underwriters' Association (Limited) Melbourne, by whom it was compiled. It is excellently got up, and the particulars of the several casualties are well shown. By it we find that in 1882 154 casualties occurred; of these 58 are set down as total loss, 75 more or less damaged, and 21 as not damaged.
During the year 1882 the number of casualties to vessels in New Zealand amounted to 53. Of these, 19 vessels were totally wrecked and 34 partially injured.

The New Zealand Shipping Company's chartered steamer Fenstanton, from London, arrived at Port Chalmers, and made fast to the George street Pier, at 5 a.m. on the 20th, drawing 20ft 6in of water aft, and 15ft forward.

Quicker despatch than that experienced by the steamer Fenstanton has never been equalled in the Port, nor, we believe, in any other New Zealand port. By noon today she will be clear of her Dunedin cargo, 3000 tons. Her refrigerating chambers were clear yesterday, and were at once cooled down, in order that she might commence taking in carcasses today.

The steamer Fenstanton is entirely clear of her Dunedin cargo, and has taken in 2248 carcasses of mutton and 900 sacks of grain. Her discharge has been the quickest on record, and her cargo has turned out in splendid order.
All claims against the ship Dunedin are to be sent in to her agents today. She has taken in 260 bales wool, 60 bales rabbitskins, 234 casks tallow, and 3809 carcasses of mutton. The whole of her outward cargo is engaged, and she will probably sail for London about the middle of October.

ARRIVAL OF THE EMBLETON
The barque Embleton, whose arrival has been anxiously looked for during the past three weeks, was signalled from Cape Saunders at 4 p.m. on Monday. She was promptly tendered by the s.s. Plucky, which towed her across the bar at 5.30 p.m., and brought her to the anchorage off Mansford Bay at 7 p.m. The Embleton's passage from Glasgow to Port Chalmers has occupied 117 days, and from land to land 112 days- a very long passage for smart a ship as she evidently is, but easily accounted for by the fact of her meeting strong adverse winds for 12 days off the Western Isles, meeting very light N. E. trades, and no S. E. trades, but, on the contrary, getting S. W. monsoons, which detained her fully 12 days off Pernambrico. The Embleton is a fine iron barque, 1196 tons net register, and was built at Sunderland in 1881 under special survey by Messrs R. Thompson and Sons for Messrs P. Iredale and Co., of Liverpool, the owners of the barque Lizzie Bell and other well known traders to this port. Her dimensions are: Length, 226ft 5in; breadth of beam, 36ft 2in; depth of hold, 21ft 5in. She has a raised quarter-deck 41ft long, and appears in every respect a well-equipped vessel. She brings 45 passengers and 1800 tons of cargo, of which nearly 1700 are dead weight, and the rest general, and is consigned to Messrs Dalgety and Co.
