The steamship Ionic, which during her stay in port has been the great centre of attraction, left for London, via Lyttelton, at 9.40 a.m. on Saturday, in charge of Senior-pilot Kelly. Amongst other gentlemen who went down the harbour in her were Captain Boyd (manager of the New Zealand Shipping Company), Captain Thomson (harbourmaster), and Mr J. Mill (member of the Harbour Board). She was attended by the tugs Koputai and Plucky, and crossed the bar in splendid style at 10.20 a.m., her draught of water being 18 ft 9 in aft, and 18 ft 1 in forward. Captain Hallett and his officers have gained golden opinions from everyone who has visited the ship, by the courtesy they have displayed. The Ionic takes the following cargo:-
510 bales wool 		 10,480 0 0
88 bales sheepskins 	   380 0 0
97 bales rabbitskins 	 2,231 0 0
18 bales leather 	   360 0 0
26 bales basils 	   280 0 0
10 casks tallow 	    50 0 0
2181 sacks wheat 	 2,181 0 0
384 sacks oats 		   384 0 0
476 sacks flour 	   952 0 0
80 casks sperm oil 	 4,900 0 0
36 pkgs sundries 	   360 0 0
6 boxes gold 		32,852 10 0
9591 sheep and 100 legs mutton 16,800 0 0

Total value 72,210 10. 0.
In addition to the above she took 1 bag of ducks, 1 bag of hares and a case of trout. The latter are forwarded to Dr Day, editor of Land and Water, by the Acclimatisation Society; while among the sheep was a very fine one for H.R.H. the Prince of Wales.
Our old friend Captain Brown, of the ship Forfarshire, was on Saturday presented with a handsome ebony inkstand, in which a silver plate had been let in, bearing the following inscription:-"Presented to Captain Brown by the single girls, in token of his fatherly kindness to them, June 30, 1883."

A barquentine to the southward was signalled from the pilot-station yesterday morning. She was tendered by the s.s. Plucky, which towed her across the bar at 11. a.m., taking her past Port Chalmers at 11.45 a.m., and proceeding up to the harbour to Dunedin.
The P. and O. Company have ordered the construction of four steel steamers at Glasgow for the Australian trade.
The barque Wild Wave, which left Port Chalmers on May 1[3?], was 4[3?8?] days on her passage to Adelaide where she arrived on June 25. She met a constant succession of head winds throughout the passage.
We are informed that the s.s. Wairarapa arrived at Lyttelton at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, and although only drawing 16 ft 8 in of water, she was not able to get alongside the steamboat pier until 10 a.m., thereby suffering a detention of two hours.

The whaling barque Othello is in a forward state, and will proceed to the whaling grounds at the latter end of the week.
The s.s. Suva, having been thoroughly scraped, cleaned, and painted, was floated out of the graving Dock yesterday.
Several oversea vessels should soon put in their appearance at Port Chalmers- the barque Aurauco from Liverpool, being 90 days out; the barque Glen_ffer, from Glasgow, 89 days out; and the ship Auckland, from London, 80 days out. A strong south-west wind setting in should bring all of them up in the course of the next few days.
The barque Cooleen put out the last of her general cargo yesterday. She has about 80_ tons of deadweight left in as stiffening.
Captain Glazebrook, of the barque Alastor, was presented on Saturday with a massive electro-plated salver bearing a suitable inscription, from a family who were passengers with him from London to Otago, in appreciation of the unwearied attention and kindness he displayed towards them.
The ketch Kestrel, that got aground on the breakwater on Friday (says the Christchurch Press), was towed off by the tug Lyttelton on Saturday afternoon, after both the steam launches (Lyttelton and Waiwera) had tugged their utmost at her fruitlessly. The steam tug towed her across to Peacock's Jetty, the vessel lying on her beam ends. Yesterday Mr M'Intosh, the owner, had succeeded in getting her "on the hard", close in to the breastwork, between Peacock's Jetty and the Tunnel-mouth Wharf, and in righting her once more. Her timbers are said to have suffered very slightly, but the planking on one of her sides is reported to be badly broken. The damage she has sustained is by no means so extensive or serious as had been feared. With reference to this vessel we are requested to state that this is not the Kestrel owned by the Dunedin Iron and Woodware Company. Their vessel is at present loading at Owaka for Timaru.
The brig John Wesley returned to port on the 15th inst., after cruising amongst the South Sea Islands for a period of five months. During her cruise she picked up a boat containing four men and three women, natives of Vavau, which had been blown off the land. They were in a very prostrate and exhausted condition from want of food and exposure, and would probably have perished miserably had they not fallen in with the John Wesley. After they had recovered somewhat they stated that they had left Vavau for the purpose of attending a great native feast at Habai, where the women intended to take part in the dancing, but lost themselves when land disappeared from view.
