The Snares were made Wednesday. The Waikato brings 40 passengers and a large cargo. On going on board, the Waikato was found to be in splendid order everywhere. Water found is way aboard rendering to necessary to barricade the main hatchway poop. The saloon was flooded out. No spars were carried away during the bad weather.
