REMOVAL OF WRECKS. The “Wrecks Removal Act," 1877, gives powers to the Local Harbour Authority at every port to clear away any wreck forming an obstruction, in default of the owner's proceeding to do so, and to re-imburse itself from the sale of any materials recovered, either of the ship or of its cargo. Where there is no local authority, the lighting and buoying authority is to have jurisdiction, and the same powers of removal, re-imbursing itself in the same manner.

As, however, the expenses of recovery of the materials of an iron ship greatly exceed the value of the materials when recovered, certain of the principal harbour authorities have applied for, and have obtained, further powers, and the Thames and Humber Con. servancies, the Mersey Harbour Board, the Clyde Lighthouse Trust, and the Commissioners of Cork and of Waterford Harbours, have, with some others, power to enforce payment by the owners of a wrecked ship of all expenses incurred in the removal of the obstruction.

The “Wrecks Removal Act," 1887, has been amended by the "Wrecks Removal Amendment Act,” 1889, which extends the meaning of the word “obstruction" in the former Act.

In France, the measure of liability is now limited to the value of the ship and cargo. By abandonment of these the owner of a vessel wrecked in French waters escapes all further liability to the Government.

STANDING RULES FOR STEAM VESSELS AT SEA. Officer of the Watch to keep his look-out on the Bridge, not leaving it except when necessary. At night he will be careful to see, from time to time, that the side and masthead lights are burning brightly, and kept trimmed ; that the look-out man is at his post, and that the Ship is steered her course. Where an order book is not kept, the course given to be marked on the Log-slate (which should always be kept in the Chart-room), the Officer relieving to examine same before taking charge. The bearing of the North Star to be noted frequently and entered in the Log, with the direction of the Ship's head at the time of observation. Amplitudes never to be neglected. All courses given are by the Bridge or Standard Compass. The Officer in charge of the Deck to observe if any change or difference takes place between any or either of the Compasses, i.e., more than usual, if so, call the Master. Log to be hove every two hours, if Patent Log is towing it should be verified by common Log. Barometer registered every four hours, and to be frequently noted during unsettled weather. Masters and Officers are respectfully requested NEVER to forget the three L's--LATITUDE, LOOK-OUT, and LEAD. No Chart-room ought to be without Celestial Maps hung up.

The Master, when leaving the Deck for rest, shall see that Chart is on the table for the use of the Officer in charge, with instructions to be called on all occasions of doubt.

Pump wells to be sounded by Carpenter at 8 a.m. and at 8 p.m., and to be reported to Chief Officer who reports same to Captain previous to making eight bells; and wells to be sounded not less than once in four hours during bad weather, any unusual quantity of water to be reported to Captain and Engineer of watch. Carpenter to note soundings on the board (where one is kept) in addition to verbal report. Officer of the watch to report changes of weather, particularly so in cases of fog, heavy rains and haze, a large number of Ships, or anything unusual connected with the Ship, such as thick volumes of smoke going right ahead, so that the course may be altered if prudent to do so. Watch on deck to be kept round the wheel-house, so as to be ready for Officer's orders, and save him from leaving the Bridge to look for the hands.

Master, Officers, and Carpenter to see that all Steering Gear is in working order.

Chief Officer to see that the Forecastle is cleaned out at proper times; also to see the Winches are always in working order.

Carpenter to work all Sluice Valves once a week, and as a rule keep them closed at sea, except when wanted to run water to Engine-room.

Carpenter to look after all Tarpaulins and Wedges for Hatchway Battens, and during fine weather the ventilator covers are to be taken off, and one hatch from each hatchway, and to be closed again before dark. Chief Officer to see that the coal trimmers keep the grating on bunker holes, and put covers on every evening coming in dark; any neglect of this to be reported to the Chief Engineer.

The Ash Shoot is to be used for the purpose of keeping the Ship clean. GENERAL RULES TO BE OBSERVED ON BOARD

SHIP IN PORT OR AT ANCHOR. The Officer to see that the Anchor Lamp is burning brightly before leaving the deck. Deck never to be lelt without a look-out.

Chief Officer has general charge, and will see that a proper account of Cargo and Stores is kept both in taking in and discharging, and also see that the Carpenter looks at limbers, and sees that the pumps are all clean and tank cocks in working order, and all scuppers clear in 'tween decks before cargo is stowed there; the Chief Officer to see the Shackles of Chain Cables are in working order (White Lead will be found the best thing for this purpose). Wood Pins (American Elm is good for pins).

Second Officer, and also Third, will be under directions of Chief, either to tally cargo or to look after holds, and, if necessary, to keep a hold book. Ship never to be left without an Officer on board except in Harbour or Dock, and not then until the Watchman takes charge, and Watchman not to leave until one of the Officers come. ** Any suggestions for further information will be appreciated.

By THOMAS Gray, Assistant Secretary, Board of Trade. Two Steamships, When all three lights I see ahead,

Meeting. I port my helm and show my Red. Two Steamships/GREEN to Green or Red to RedPassing Clear. Perfect safety-go ahead !

Two Steamships Crossing. Note.-This is the position of greatest danger; there is nothing for it but good look-out, caution and judgment, with prompt action.

All ships must keep a good look-out, and steamships must stop and go astern if necessary.

If to my Starboard RED appear,
It is my duty to keep clear-
To act as judgment says is proper-
To Port-or Starboard--Back-or Stop her.
But when upon my Port is seen
A Steamer's Starboard light of Green,
There's naught for me to do but see
That GREEN to Port keeps clear of me.
