To Our Readers. �We have found it advisable to omit from our shipping column the lists of packages arriving by the several coasting steamers. There is evidently no advantage to the public in learning Hint so many cases, or bales, or crates, arrived m a certain vessel, unless it is also stated what was m them and to whom they were consigned. To give this fuller information, however, would be to prejudice our advertising columns, and to affect a liberality which is quite unusual, and is not culled for by the rules of business. We have therefore determined to discard altogether the useless and unintelligible lists of heterogeneous goods, which have hitherto cumbered our shipping column. We shall endeavor always to give the fullest mercantile and maritime intelligence, which is of public interest; while those consignees who desire to have their importations specially noted, can do so by paying for the insertion of the information as an advertisement.

Green, left Timaru early, in a trap drawn by two horses, for the purpose of attending Pleasant Valley Races, but after reaching the Waihi and leaving the main line of road they lost the track and came to the edge of a swamp. The horses became restive and unmanageable eventually upsetting the trap and throwing the occupants. Mr Green captured the horses and repaired the shaft with flax, and fastening together the harness, took two hours. The party started for Mr Young's Accommodation House at the Waihi, a distance of five or six miles.

Steam Communication. During the last week the p.s. Geelong, Captain Turnbull, visited Timaru for the last time, for a season. Certain repairs are necessary before a new certificate can be granted to the Geelong, and it is likely that she will be laid up for six or seven weeks. Two schooners are expected to be laid on for regular trading, one owned by a Dunedin firm, and the other belonging to Mr Ashcroft of Oamaru. During the last three months the Geelong has regularly landed at Timaru from thirty to forty tons of goods per week; and has had in addition, a good passenger traffic, and a little in the trade of exports.

The directors of the Southern Steam Navigation Company have purchased the well-known favourite  paddle steamer Geelong from Mr John Jones, the purchase money being, we believe 5000, including the cost of repairs and thorough over-haul in Dunedin. The Geelong will continue to be employed in the Otago and Canterbury trade, calling in at various Northern Ports; and she will make regular trips to Port Molyneux, and such other ports to the Southward. The steamer Tuapeka will ply upon the river Clutha.

Our New Zealand Cousins - by James Inglis - 1887 - 311 pages
On we hurry through a splendid farming district. Past Winchester, with its neat villas and trim gardens; past Temuka, with its white-spired church and Gothic schools, its well-stocked farms and plethoric corn-yards; past Arowhenua, with its Maori village, and another mountain stream brawling over its bed of shingle. On, with accelerated speed, through magnificently cultivated farms, rich swaths of stubble, and ample evidences on every hand of rural wealth and thriving settlement. I have rounded sheep over every miles of this country in the olden time, when there was little else but flax, raupo, tussock, wild pig and unbroken ground. Men are surely better than wild pigs, and smiling farms than lonely shepherds' huts. The train rolls into Timaru, and we get housed in the comfortable Grosvenor Hotel. Twenty years ago I last visited Timaru, I sailed up from Lyttelton, in a small coasting tub of a steamer. there was a terrific ground swell off the open beach of shingle, and the breakers rolled their curling crests landwards with a roar and crash like thunder. All landing, both cargo and passengers, was done by the huge unwieldy surf-boats. And it was a very rare experience, indeed, to get ashore with a dry skin.
The village boasted then of only a few shops, one or two ware houses along the beach, and less than half a dozen inferior hotels. The Timaru Herald of that date was published in a small weathered hut, quite detached, and perched on a waster hillock overlooking the ocean. The very hill itself has now disappeared, to make room for the railway. Bullocks teams might be stuck up in the main streets and towns people came to the assistance of the teamster to dig them out. All the houses were of wood, and were set down very much at random. When the annual races were held, the young bloods and station hands "from all the region round about", the boys from the Mackenzie country, the sawyers from the Waimate, the half-breeds and 'cockatoos" from Temuka and the Arowhenua Bush, and all the "flotsam and jetsam: from every accommodation-house within a radius of fifty miles used to come into town, and for a lively week or two high saturnalia used ro be held. At that time Timaru had the reputation of being the fastest, most rackety, riotous township in the South Island.

The ordinary monthly meeting of the Timaru Harbour Board was held to-day. The harbormaster, Captain Webster, reported the arrival of 29 vessels, of the aggregate register tonnage of 8396 tons, and the departure of 31 vessels, of the aggregate tonnage of 8772 tons, during the mouth of October 1885. During the month the weather has been favourable for shipping. The whole of the vessels worked at the wharf, and received good despatch. The barque Lochnagar, from London direct, discharged a six-ton boiler, with the aid of the crane "Samson," across the wharf. He suggests to board, in view of the further extension of the breakwater, the advisability of placing a few piles in the most conspicuous place against the concrete, to allow vessels to come directly under the jib of the large crane to lift out a weight up to 40 tons and place it on the railroad. The Priestman dredge has been employed when opportunity offered in increasing the depth at the outer end of the wharf.

Timaru, this day. The tug has returned from the barque Hudson. The Harbour-master says that she is lying head-on to the beach near the mouth of Milford Lagoon (some 12 miles north of Timaru, she was bound for Lyttelton so 40 miles off course). She went ashore at 3 o'clock on Thursday morning.� The captain declines to state how, remarking that he will have to answer enough by and-bye. The ship is owned by the Shaw, Savill and Albion Company. She is on a sandy beach, and is not in any way injured. The cargo is all right. The crew got ashore without difficulty, as the sea was very calm. It is probable that the barque will get off should the weather keep fine. Arrangements are likely to be made to get a tug from Lyttelton and the Harbour Board's tug to tow her off. Capt. Edwin J. Thomas gives the following particulars of the mishap to the vessel: after a very fine passage of 95 days from London, the Hudson made the Snares on Saturday last. On Wednesday evening she made Timaru town light, but could not see the light from the lighthouse, At 10 p.m. she stood out to sea, and about midnight tacked towards the shore. After a while she was again headed seaward. The wind then fell calm, and a dense fog set in. Soundings were taken, and every effort was taken to keep her off the land, but the swell and current gradually forced her nearer the Ninety-mile Beach, which she struck about 3 o'clock in the morning. About noon Mrs Thomas, wife of the master, was landed, and shortly after 2p,m. the crew began to jettison the cargo throwing overboard a quantity of gunpowder, cases of spirits, etc the greater part of which was soon picked up and stacked on the beach. The Rocket Brigade in the meantime ran a line ashore and to the other side of the lagoon, to assist in getting the cargo on shore and steady the vessel. The captain of the Hudson intended to send all his crew ashore for the night. Her cargo consists of about 1,1500 tons of general merchandise, and a quantity of plant for the Timaru Woollen Factory Company (Limited). As to the actual cause of the Hudson coming to grief, the captain put it down to the heavy current and dense fog, the set of the former of which is not properly understood.

We understand Captain Edwin J. Thomas has an interest in the vessel, and has sailed her for six years. The Hudson is an iron barque of 737 tons register, Aa1 at Lloyd. Her length is 194ft, beam 30ft, and depth of hold 19ft. She was built at Stockton by Messrs M. Pearse and Co. in 1869. She belongs to the Shaw, Saville and Albion Company's fleet, and left London on August 15th, consigned to Mr John Inglis. She is commanded by Captain Edwin J. Thomas. There is also a locomotive onboard consigned to the Government. Herbert Collins, second mate of the barque Hudson.

Captain Perriam seems to have greatly enjoyed his first visit to South Canterbury.

Capt. Gerhard Crone, late of the s s. Wainui, is about to take command of the barque Susan Jane, belonging to Messrs LeCren, Turnbull and others, of Timaru. The vessel is presently on a voyage to Newcastle for coals, and is expected in a week or two, when Captain Clone assumes command. His first trip will probably be to Mauritius.

Timaru July 23. Arrived  Cingalese, barque, Captain Raddon, 104 days from London. About .five weeks ago a very heavy sea broke over her poop, throwing down the captain (who was at the wheel) and flooding the decks, nearly washing another man overboard. Captain Raddon's ankle was seriously injured, but was put in splints. On coming ashore it was found that the small bones were broken but they have been well set.
