MAMARI ARRIVES FROM LONDON. The new steamer Mamari, the latest addition to the fleet of the Shaw Savill, and Albion Company, arrived in the stream last night from London via Capetown and Hobart and was birthed at No. 1 South, Queen's Wharf, early this morning. The vessel left London on the 16th December, and had an uneventful trip out. She is a fine looking boat, with up to date fittings for the carriage of passengers and cargo. A detailed description of the vessel has been published in this column, suffice to say that she is the sister ship to the fine steamer Matatua.

Messrs E. Pike, J. Bragg, H. Bragg, Masters A Bragg, E. Moffat
