The Timaru has now received 1900 bales of wool on
board. Of this number 950 are hydraulic pressed.
The ship Blue Jacket, Captain James White, cleared at the
customs for London yesterday. She has, in addition to a full cargo of
wool, skins, &c., fourteen boxes gold dust, valued at
£60,140, the entire cargo being
estimated at £131,720. The whole of
the Blue Jacket's saloon accommodation, and the greater part of the
second cabin is, we, believe occupied. Yesterday afternoon she dropped
down, and anchored off Parsons rock. Press, 30th. January.
