It LAST Witimx's WBBcxs.-Twenty-two British and foreign wrecks were reported during the past week, making a total of 260 for the present year, or a decrease of 219 as compared with the corresponding week of 1877. The approximate value of the vessels and cargoes was X365,000, including British £ 255,000. Among the number was the fine new Liverpool ship Kents Bank, valued at about £76,000, with her cargo. THE NAVY ESTIMATES.—The estimated cost of the services provided for in the Navy Estimates for the coming year is £ 11,053,901, the net amount, after deducting £ 123,000 for extra receipts and repayments, and £ 70.000 to be contributed by the Indian Govern- ment on account of the expense of the fleet on the India station, being £ 10,860,901. Poi the current year £10,971,829 was voted, so that there is a net increase in the Estimates for the next year of £ 82,072. Compared with the expenditure of 1876-77, however, there is a decrease of £ 258,005. AUXILIARY FORCES AFLOAT.-On its becom- ing known that an offer had been made by the Ounard Line to place a steamer at the disposal of the Admiralty to be fitted as a cruiser for protection of commerce the Liverpool Brigade of Naval Artillery Volunteers came forward and tendered their services, 130 having sent in their names as ready to serve. South port, Bangor, and Carnarvon have all re- sponded in proportion to their numbers, and such willingness to go afloat speaks well for the spirit which pervades this branch of our Auxiliary Forces. -Ármlj and Navy Gazette.
