Lest ye court his bittermost hate. Tell him not she is doomed to disaster O prophesy not of her fate.

If you want to make friends with a skipper, Speak well of the bark he commands; Swear there's nothing afloat that can whip her And he'H greet you whenever he lands. Do you know that a ship's almost hu man? Old sailors will tell you so. Why! a ship has the wrays of a woman You must follow the sea to know. Speak well of a ship to her master.

Yesterday saw the arrival in this port of four d?ep-water vessels. Two of them came from Newcastle, coal laden; two came from San Francisco loaded with everything which goes to make up a general cargo. Three were barks and one was a - schooner. They were the American bark Edward May, Captain Hanson, eighteen days from the Golden Gate, with gen eral merchandise consigned to Alexan der & Baldwin; the American schooner Aloha, Captain Fry, eighteen days from San Francisco, with general merchan dise consigned to H. Hackfeld & Co.; the British bark Woollahra, Captain Thompson, fifty-three days from New castle, with 850 tons of coal consigned to Alexander & Baldwin, and 537 tons of coal in transit to Eureka, and the American bark Palmyra, Captain Kel lar, sixty-eight days from Newcastle, with coal. 1 The Edward May and the Aloha sail- Stjt - . v . - '' "...

Captain Mo-' Phail is discharged, and already has I about 20,000 bags of sugar aboard. She has now to wait for the rest of her j cargo, and will probably not leave for the coast until Sunday or Monday. The Rithet arrived here on the 19th ' of April, and is receiving quick dispatch. Important Naval Changes. Several important naval changes were announced at the navy depart ment on the ISth instant. Commander P. R. Ingersoll has been ordered to the command of the Bennington, relieving Commander C. H. Arnold. Commander William Smith has assumed command of the Concord as the relief of Com mander Colby.

To the right of the transport are shown the sheds on the Pacific Mail wharf. Arrived From Hamburg. At noon on Tuesday the German bark Tellus arrived from Hamburg, after a voyage of 155 days. She met with ad verse winds during the greater part of the trip, otherwise she would have made better time. Arrived From Newcastle. . The schooner Robert Searles has ar Mediterranean sea. There has been in process of forma tion for several months a line of ships to run between Puget Sound ports and the far East, and in fact one boat was dispatched on the new route as was stated at the time, but the nego tiations for the eight ships which will be put on the route were only just closed, and the announcement that they will be assigned to regular sailings is confirmed by Northern Pacific officials. The ships are what is known as the "Glen ships" in marine and transporta- ition circles. They are as follows: The Glenlochy, 8,000 tons: Glenroy. 10.000: Glenlogan (a new ship); Glenturret, 8,000; Glenartney, 4,200 tons; Glengyle. 4,000 tons, and Glenshiel of 4,000 tons.

J. Ropes, which completed the passage in nineteen days. The cyffer 'ence in time is somewhat over twelve hours, and besides the Kenilworth cov ered 120 more miles in actual distance, i When the arrival of the ship at the Delaware Breakwater appeared on the maritime exchange blackboard yester ! day there was wild cheering, as it showed that Americans with grit still follow the sea.

The Kenilworth, laden with grain, left San Francisco November 7th for Liverpool, arrived there March 11th. sailed March 23d for Philadelphia, and has therefore covered upward of 15,000 miles within about five months. She is one of the finest vessels afloat and originally flew the British flag, but ' strange to say, was never successful while under it. In 1887 she was launch ed at Port Glasgow Scotland. She is 300 feet long, 34 feet beam, 24 feet depth of hold and 2,178 net tons register. While loading in San Francisco she caught fire and was so extensively dam aged that the insurance company paid a total loss on her. Arthur Sewall. who was there at the time, purchased her and repaired her, securing an American register. The Kenilworth is being towed to Philadelphia by the tug Rescue, and will reach port today.
