LOSS OF THE AMERICAN SHIP "DELPHOS"

(From the New Zealander, December 3.)
The American whale ship Alert Captain Middleton, arrived last week at the Bay of Islands, having as passengers the officers and crew of the American whaler Delphos, Captain West, who puropose obtaining relief from the Consulate of the United States at this port.
The following statement was forwarded to the American Consul :-
Ship Alert, Bay of Islands, Nov. 26, 1846.
On the 6th instant we made Palmerston's Island, and stood in for the purpose of procuring fresh recruits, if possible. While approaching the island a boat came off to us, containing part of the crew of the ship Delphos, of Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard, who were wrecked there ten days previous. The particulars of the disaster are thus given by the master and officers.
On the morning of the 27th October, in the midst of a violent squall of wind and rain, breakers were disclosed at a short distance on the lee bow. The order was instantly given to "veer ship;" the helm placed hard up - mizzen top-sail haulyards let go, and yards trimmed, and she had already got the wind upon her quarter, and had begun to breast the waves, when she touched lightly aft. Her fate was sealed - in a moment more she struck heavily amidship, and in five minutes was shattered into a thousand fragments.
By almost a miracle all but two of the crew were saved. When she struck, she rolled bulwarks under towards the reef. By the returning wave she rolled outboard with her masts under water, and so remained when the crew clambered over upon the side which lay out of water, and which offered some protection from the waves.
The next sea which struck her stove in her decks, and partially broke up her stern, and a succeeding one detached the side entire to which they were clinging, and threw it with them upon the reef. Thankful for their preservation thus far; their situation was now far from enviable. No land was to be seen, and there was much reason to suppose they were on a simple reef in the mid ocean, the boats were all stove, and even had they been sea-worthy, they were destitute of the instruments necessary to direct their course, as well as the provisions necessary to sustain their crews in their passage to the nearest land. The morning light, however, dissipated their fears in this respect, revealing the land at the distance of about four miles, to which they were able to proceed on the reef.

VESSELS FOR ENGLAND
During the past week the different vessels loading have met with much detention, owing to the wetness of the weather. A similar occurrence has also happened with regard to copper ore as took place last season: The Tasmania, Lydia, and Neptune, are about to discharge what portion they have taken in for dead weight, owing to its having heated so much. This ore was imported from New Zealand, and the most considerable portion from Mr. Taylor's mine at Kawan, some of which was landed from the Johnstone, last year, after being stowed, from fear of its igniting. The Rookery, which left this for Portand Bay, a short time since, to fill up with wool for England, also took some of the copper ore for dead weight; but owing to the intense heat it attained, she put in Launceston to land it. As a great quantity of wool has been stowed upon it in the different vessels, it will cause both serious expense and detention.

The schooner John Bull reports that a vessel had arrived at Auckland from the Bay of Islands, bringing intelligence that Heki had collected followers and again commenced hostilities; also, that the Driver had been dispatched for the Bay with troops to quell the insurrection.

H.M.S. Inflexible left on Saturday for New Zealand; His Excellency Sir Charles Fitz Roy, and a large party of ladies and gentlemen were on board, as it was generally known that she would take a cruise round the harbour prior to her proceeding to sea. After running down near the heads she returned and ran up Darling Harbour, for the purpose of going round Goat Island, w3hen she rounded on the sandspit which extends from Goat Island towards Balmain. She remained on it about an hour, when, as the tide was flowing, she got off. Not having received any damage she then proceeded to sea forthwith, after landing her visitors.

The 'JOHNSTONE' - We have been requested to state that the copper ore on board the Johnstone, was imported from South Australia, not from New Zealand.

The brig Maukin, hence, was entering Auckland on the 25th.

The schooner Elizabeth, Clayton, left Auckland for Sydney on the 5th January, and the cutter Swan, Gardner, left there for this port on the 7th, to touch at Hokianga.

The Rookery from Sydney to London, has put into Launceston. Her cargo, copper ore from New Zealand, having heated, the whole is to be discharged. This vessel brought from Sydney about 150 tons New Zealand ore in bulk; she was destined for Portland Bay, to fill up with wool; but on the passage down the ore required trimming, and upon some of the crew descending into the hold, the heat was found to be so intolerable that it became evident something was going wrong. Upon examination it was discovered that the ore was heating rapidly, and fears were entertained that it would ignite. The Captain , therefore, put in here, and having consulted the agents, it was decided that the only safe course was to discharge the cargo. This was commenced at George Town, but the difficulty of obtaining laboureres there, rendered the process so slow, that it was resolved to bring the Bessel up to town, and she is now unloading at Griffith's wharf. Dr Pugh examined the state of the ore; at two feet below the surface the thermometer rose to 130 degrees, and a little lower to 150 degrees. There is not the least question that in a few weeks at most, combustion would have taken place. Dr. Pugh has commenced an analysis of the ore, and the presence of a very large proportion of sulphur seems to be the principal cause of its heating. The same ore, we believe, was shipped some twelve months ago on board the Hoeghly, at Sydney, but discharged for the same cause. The men employed can only work in the hold for a quarter of an hour at a time, and are subject to profuse bleeding at the nose. - Launceston Examiner.

ROUTES BY STEAM SHIP TO ENGLAND
The Sub-Committee, after comparing the advantages presented by the various lines which have been submitted, are disposed to give their opinion in favour of the route by Torres Straits, in consideration not only of the shortness of distance, and the circumstance that this line affords seas best adapted to steam navigation, on account of the moderate weather and smooth water, but of the considerable and increasing south coming trade in tea, coffee, sugar, rice, manufactured tobacco, rum, and other articles, which are principally directed to where two-thirds of the Australian population are located; and also because it is the shortest line to New Zealand. The Sub-Committee subjoin a table, exhibiting the population and trade in the various settlements.

The Factor reports, at Stewart's Island, December 7, 1846, Fortitude, barque, of Hobart Town, Captain Bailey, one month out, clean; lowered after a large sperm whale off Solander's Island on the evening of the 5th, and killed him, but lost sight of the barque, so remained by the shale all night (the three boats). At daylight the weather was very bad; they saw the ship to leeward, distance three leagues. Captain Bailey left the whale with the two boats, with the intention of going on board. When within 300 yards of the vessel a sea broke into the boat and capsized her. They saw this accident from the ship, but lost their presence of mind, and were consequently unable to render any assistance. As soon as the mates arrived alongside with the whale, the people on board informed them of the accident, but knew not where to direct them in search of the captain. When at last they did find the boat, the captain was delirious and nearly dead, and dreadfully bruised, having been in the water three hours. All the rest had perished; - singular to say, the captain was the only man in the boat who could not swim. The mate left the whale, and took the barque into Paterson's River, Stewart's Island. We spoke her off the Solanders, 26th December; Captain Bailey much better - able to go on deck. Spoke her again January 11, 1847; the Captain able to go in his boat. The Fortitude had not taken anything up to this date.

On the 15th June last, while cruising on the north-west fishery, the Peruvian nearly ran upon one of the Fox Islands, in a fog, at midnight. The fog suddenly cleared away, and revealed a rocky shore directly ahead. On the following day Captain Brown stood in and examined the island, which he found to be laid down too far to the south-south-east. The island appeared sterile, and covered with snow.

H.M.S. Calliope, 26, Captain Stanley, arrived in port on Sunday, from Nelson and Wanganui having on board as passengers his Honor the Superintendent, his Honor Mr. Justice Chapman, R. Strang, Esq, and officers of the Supreme Court. When off Wanganui a melancholy accident occurred, involving the loss of two lives. On arriving off the bar the Calliope fired a gun. Lieutenant Holmes left the river, in a boat, with four prisoners, whom he conveyed on board. On returning, a fresh breeze sprung up from the north-west, and he was unable to make the bar. He accordingly decided on beaching the boat towards the Wanganui, but when about a mile from the shore she shipped a sea and eventually capsized. Two of the men made at once for the shore, which they reached in safety. The unfortunate deceased became frightened, and losing their presence of mind, began to sink. Lieutenant Holmes, with a gallantry in every way to be admired, remained with them, assisting them on to the boat, which had turned uppermost. All his humane efforts were unavailing, for the poor fellows were washed off and drowned. Mr Holmes then made for the shore, but so exhausted had he become through his exertions to rescue the two men from a watery grave, he would have lost his own life in the surf, had not the two who previously reached land ran in and saved him. The remainder of the party, by holding on to the boat, reached the shore in safety. One of the unfortunate men was a sailor, named Clatworthy, and the other a corporal of the 58th Regiment. - Wellington Independent, April 14.

NEW ZEALAND COAL - A quantity of coal from Massacre Bay (near Nelson) having been put on board H.M.S. Inflexible, Captain Hoseason, made the following official report of its quality:- "We find by a comparison with the best Newcastle (Australia) coal, obtained at Sydney, the following to be the result: - Newcastle (Australian) coal. 12 ½ revolutions on 3rd step of expansion, 24 cwt. Per hour. Nelson coal. 15 ½ revolutions on 3rd step of expansion, 25 cwt. per hour. Thus it will be soon that from about equal quantities of fuel, equal work has been obtained; but there is one peculiarity in the Nelson coal, which is being much slower in combustion that the Newcastle coal, and, therefore, would not furnish steam for the cylinders with equal rapidity to enable the vessel to go at her greatest speed in smooth water, but is far more economical when all weathers are considered: this would make it highly advantageous when mixed with the Newcastle (Australia) coal, as the bad qualities of both would then be counteracted. In justice, however, to the Nelson coal, I ought to observe that it is mere surface coal, and not obtained from a pit, like the coal of Newcastle, and has been for more than six months lying on the open beach, where it was placed for the use of the Driver, had she touched at Nelson."

LOSS OF THE ELIZABETH. - The Elizabeth, schooner, about 37 tons burthen, belonging to Mr Clayton, bound to Launceston from New Zealand, was lost on Thursday, the 15th April, at Swan Island. It came on to blow strong from the eastward, and the master, not deeming it safe to attempt riding out the gale, got under weigh, and the vessel was driven on some rocks and soon went to pieces. The cargo, about 15,000 feet timber, was nearly all saved, and so were the lives of all on board, through the assistance of Captain Johnson, superintendent of the light-house. The Governor Phillip, from Hobart Town, sent a boat on shore at the island and obtained this information. The master and crew had left in the Scotia for Hobart Town. - Launceston Examiner, April 28.

THE LOSS OF THE 'OSPREY'. - On Monday, a court martial, comprising Rear Admiral Hyde Parker C.B., Presidnet; Captain Pasco of the Victory; Captain Chads of the Excellent; Captain Lushington, of the Vengeance; Captain Henderson of the Sidon; Captain Miloe, of the St. Vincent; Captain Giffard of the Penelope; and Mr G.L. Greetham, Deputy Judge Advocate of the Fleet, assembled on board the St. Vincent, to try, on the information of Rear Admiral Sir T. Cochrane, Commander F. Patten, of her Majesty's late sloop Osprey, and the officers and ship's company, for the loss of that vessel on the western coast of New Zealand, in March last. It is quite unnecessary to give the evidence adduced; the whole case rested upon this fact - the waters where the ship was wrecked had never been surveyed, and False Hokianga so closely resembles True Hokianga, that mistaking one for the other was most natural under the circumstances detailed before the Court. Commander Patten read his defence. The Court fully acquitted Commander Patten, as well as the officers and ship's company; and were of the opinion that every exertion had been made in the endeavour to save the said ship. The President then returned Commander Patten his sword. - London Paper

A proposal has just been put forward, in a pamphlet by Mr Enderby, for the establishment of a whaling station at the Auckland Islands, which at any other time would have been likely to have been promptly adopted. The constant influx of American capital into this species of adventure gives conclusive proof of the profits to be derived from it, since American capitalists require larger returns than we are accustomed to look for; and consequently the only causes that suggest themselves for our having been driven from the trade would seem to consist either in defective legislation or some national inherit incapacity.

WHALING COLONIES IN COOK'S STRAIGHT
(From the Colonial Gazette, January 9.)
A Plan for forming colonies instead of boat stations, in Cook's Straight, was submitted to our readers on the 21st of November. (Middle section of Col.3)

The Maukin has made a very quick passage to and from Auckland, for the time of the year, having been absent from Sydney only five weeks, including a detention of nine days in discharging and loading. The schooner John Bull, hence the 17th April, arrived at Auckland on the 5th May, and was to sail again for Sydney two days after the Maukin. The schooner Deborah had sailed from Auckland for Sydney, via the Bay of Islands, on the 6th instant, with a full cargo of timber, flax, and wool, and the following passengers:

Bolger 		Mrs and two children
Bradbury 	Mr

The Charles (formerly the Mary Catherine) was loading at Kiapara, with spars for England, and was expected at Auckland about the end of May, from which port she would sail direct for London.
Prior to the sailing of the Maukin from Auckland, intelligence had been received of a dreadful murder having been committed by the natives in the district of Wanganui, the following particulars of which have been furnished us by Captain Cooney.
- On Sunday evening, April 18, Mr Gilfillans arrived in the township from his country section, with a frightful gash on his neck, having been attacked by six natives, from whom he made his escape, but was under great apprehension for the safety of his wife and family. Next morning at daylight a party of police and civilians started for Mr Gilfillans' residence, and on arriving there a fearful sight was presented to them - the house was burnt to the ground, Mrs. G. had been murdered, and by her side lay the bodies of three of her children, all dreadfully mutilated - namely, a girl of fourteen, a boy of twelve and another of four years of age. One only of the family survived, a girl of about fifteen years of age, and she was so severely wounded that it was not expected she would recover. The friendly natives started the same night in pursuit, and secured five of the murderers up the river, and on the following evening they were lodged by the police in the stockage. One was clothed in Gilfillans' property, and their blankets and tomahawks were besmeared with blood, which, with Gilfillans' identification, and subsequently their own confession, was sufficient and conclusive proof against them. An inquest was held on the bodies, and a verdict of willful murder found against the five natives in custody. The district of Wanganui being still under martial law, a military commission was to be held on the 22nd April, for their trial. The only conjectured cause for this brutal and cold-blooded murder, was an occurrence that took place some time ago, when, by accident, a pistol went off in a gentleman's hand, and severely wounded a native; they then vowed they would have 'blood for blood'.
The Maukin spoke the Sir John Byng, from Newcastle, bound for Port Nicholson, eight days out, lat. 36.20 S., long 164deg 16 E.

The schooner Munford, for Auckland, has had the whole of the cargo in since Tuesday last, but was unable to leave Newcastle owing to the boisterous state of the weather.

The schooner Coquette, hence, via New Zealand, arrived at Tahiti about the 8th April, and sailed for the Leeward Islands on the 21st of the same month. The schooner Ann, Rogers, hence, via New Zealand, arrived there on the 20th April. The barque Janet had arrived from Hokianga, New Zealand, with a cargo of timber. This vessel had sprung a leak shortly after leaving Hokianga, and made at one time seven feet and a half water. On her arrival at Tahiti, a charge was preferred against Captain Dring, for bad treatment of his Lascar crew, which was heard before Captain Martin, on board H.M.S. Grampus, but owing to the want of an interpreter, the case could not be properly investigated. The master, however, we understand, received a severe reprimand from Captain Martin.
It is understood that the Thomas Lowry has been taken up for the conveyance of troops to New Zealand.
The barque Sunflower sailed from Twofold Bay, for Auckland, with cattle, on Friday sennight.

The 'COMET' - This vessel has had a lengthened passage of twenty-three days from Port Nicholson, having encountered very boisterous weather since leaving that port. On Saturday last she was compelled to put into Port Stephens, where she remained until Tuesday afternoon. The schooner Star of China was to sail from Port Nicholson for Sydney on the 28th instant. The schooner Scotia, on her arrival there from this port, was dispatched to Wanganui, where the natives were again in arms, with 100 rank and file of the 58th Regiment, and having returned from there had proceeded to the southward for oil, as also the schooner Frolic, which had been purchased by Mr John Jones fro the sum of £900. H.M.S. Calliope sailed from Wellington for Wanganui the same day as the Comet, having on board Captain Henderson and a party of Royal Artillerymen.

NEW SCHOONER - A new schooner of 88 tons, builders' measurement, arrived on Wednesday morning from William River, having been built there by Mr Lowe, and fitted up under the superintendence of Captain Winter. Her dimensions are 52 feet over all, 18 feet beam, and 9 feet 6 inches depth of hold. Her sailing qualities are said to be very good, which we should expect from her model. Being completely finished off, with the exception of her cabin fittings, she has a very pretty appearance, and does great credit to Mr Lowe, who we understand has built her for sale.

THE COAL TRADE - This branch of traffic is increasing, and several vessels are now regularly employed between this and Massacre Bay. The schooner Ocean returned to port on Thursday, with another full cargo, and the Royal William sails immediately, to load with coal. The Mary Ann, Hero, and Carbon, are likewise going into the trade, besides two or three vessels belonging to Nelson. The coal is visibly improving, and we can state that there is now not the least doubt of its success. The Government will require a considerable quantity for the use of H. steamer, and as in all likelihood a private steamer will be employed on this coast, our merchants can with safety continue to embark money in the coal trade. A few vessels of about 60 or 70 tons burden drawing a light draught of water, are much required at the present time, and their owners would be sure to meet with good and constant employment - Wellington Independent
The Prince of Wales will have the whole of her stock on board this day, and will sail for Auckland in the course of to-morrow.
ENGLISH SHIPPING - The Protector, 372, Hunter, was to sail for New Zealand on the 10th March. The Malabar, 78 guns, and another line-of-battle ship, were to sail for New Zealand early in March.

STEAM TO AUSTRALIA
…Lieutenant Waghorn … has addressed a letter to Earl Grey, calling his Lordship's attention to the plan for establishing a regular steam communication with our Australian colonies, which ahs now been for some time before the public… A new constitution has just been given to New Zealand, and the success or failure of the great
P535
Political experiment which is about to be tried in that colony must depend in a great measure on the closeness with which the home authorities can watch its workings. By the proposal of Lieutenant Waghorn, New Zealand will be brought as near to England as Jamaica was thirty years ago. Is it going too far to affirm, that if steam communication had been established between England an her Australian colonies six years ago, we should have been saved the loss, the pain, and the humiliation which the blunders of successive Governors of New Zealand have caused us, and that the colony, instead of being in its present miserable condition, would have been one of the most flourishing dependencies of the British crown? A sum of £100,000 per annum is all that is required by Lieutenant Waghorn from the Government to carry out his plan; so that even in an economical point of view its immediate adoption is desirable. It will cost the nation more than £600,000 to remedy the disasters which have occurred during the last six years in New Zealand - disasters the occurrence of which would have been prevented, had the home Government possessed the means of speedy communication with the colonial authorities. - Sun.

The Sir John Byng had a long passage of twenty-one days from Port Nicholson, having met with very bad weather. The schooner Munford hence via Newcastle the 13th May, arrived at Port Nicholson on the 19th June, with loss of deck stock and mainboom, having encountered an unusually stormy passage. The schooner Star of China sailed for Wanganui on the 10th June, with stores for the use of the troops, and from thence would sail for Sydney via Nelson. H.M.S. Calliope, and steamer Inflexible, the Government brig Victoria, and the schooner Frolic were in harbour when the Sir John Byng sailed. The Inflexible was to leave for Auckland with His Excellency the Governor, about the 22nd June, and the Government brig was under orders to proceed to Wanganui with stores, &c., as the natives had completely stopped the transit overland. The destination of the Frolic was uncertain.

The Sunflower has been sixteen days on the passage from Auckland. The steamer Inflexible from Port Nicholson, with Governor Grey on board, was going in there as she sailed. The brig Maukin, hence, had arrived at Auckland after a boisterous passage of nineteen days, and was to sail for Sydney about the 3rd instant. The steamer Juno had not arrived there on the 29th June, she must therefore have been at the Bay of Islands, where she was to land a portion of her stock.

The Scotia has made a very good run of eleven days from Port Nicholson. It appears the bad weather that has been experienced of late off this coast had not extended to New Zealand. The Thomas Lowry which had arrived at Port Nicholson from Auckland, was to sail for Sudney about a week after the Scotia, with the detachment of the 99th Regiment. The Mount Stuart Elphinstone hence the 9th June, arrived at Cloudy Bay, on the 4th July, having lost about 500 sheep on the passage. The whole of the crew having deserted there, the vessel was unable to proceed to Port Nicholson. Captain Thomson, however, was at the latter port shipping hands, and intended to proceed directly from Cloudy Bay to Valparaiso. The schooner Comet, hence the 1st July, arrived at Taranaki on the 15th. Her stock, consisting of fifty-seven head of cattle and fifty-four sheep, (having lost one of the former and twenty-three of the latter on the passage) were landed in the short space of four hours, and she sailed again the following day for Newcastle.
The cargo of the Frolic consists of 44 tuns oil, 18 cwt. Wool-lashing, 30 cwt. Flax, and 1 cask hams. She reports having spoken the cutter James and Amelia, hence for Wangaroa, about two hundred miles from Sydney, on Monday evening last. The barque Pestonjee Bomanjee was to sail from Auckland, for Port Nicholson, on the 20th July, with Lieutenant-Governor Eyre, Colonel Gold and Lady, and the head quarters of the 65th Regiment.
The schooner Thomas Lord had proceeded to New Zealand, Mr J.T. Waterhouse had also become the purchaser of that vessel.

PORT NICHOLSON
The barque Dyson, Captain Crockett, arrived about twelve o’clock last night from Sydney, which port she left on the 30th June. On the 10th July, the Dyson encountered a heavy gale, in which a sea struck her, and unfortunately carried away a considerable part of her rudder, owing to which she had great difficulty in steering. The Dyson was compelled to heave to for two days. One thousand one hundred and twenty-five merino maiden ewes, and twenty rams, from the flocks of Mr W.H.Suttor, were shipped at Sydney by Mr R.Campbell, tertius, for Mr Clifford. The Dyson landed at Cloudy Bay 1087 ewes, and twenty rams, having only lost thirty-eight on the trip down. Had the weather been more moderate, the Dyson would have completed the passage without the loss of a sheep. The sheep were landed in first-rate condition, and reflect great credit on Mr McKay’s superintendence. – Wellington Independent, July 21.

H.M.S. Racehorse sailed yesterday for Auckland. She was to call at Wanganui on her way, in order to take the latest intelligence from that district to head quarters. – New Zealand Spectator, July 17.

LOSS OF THE BRITISH SOVEREIGN – intelligence received of the total loss of the barque British Sovereign, Captain W.H.Jones, which sailed hence for New Zealand on the 8th January last, and from thence proceeded to the South Sea Islands on a sandal-wood voyage. (Column 1 and part of col. 2 has this story.)

The Maukin has been twenty days on the passage from Auckland, and encountered a series of heavy gales from west to south-west. The schooner John Bull hence the 9th July, arrived at Auckland on the 19th, and was advertised there for Hobart town. The schooner Cheerful was to sail for Sydney direct, two days after the Maukin. The Prince of Wales sailed from Auckland for Valparaiso on the 23rd July. The steamer Juno, on her passage hence to Auckland, lost 330 sheep and 31 head of cattle.
We have been informed by Captain Cooney, of the Maukin, that the barque Union, hence for London the 3rd July, put into the Bay of Islands, leaky, about the 20th of that month.
The schooner Comet sailed from Newcastle for Port Cooper, New Zealand, yesterday, at noon. The Sea Nymph had nearly the whole of her coals on board when the steamer Rose left yesterday, and was expected to sail for Auckland on Monday next.
P580
THE STEAMER “Juno”. – The following extract from a letter received on Monday from Auckland, by the Maukin, respecting the voyage of the above steamer from this port, has been handed to us for publication:- “We arrived here in the Juno steamer on the 7th July, and I regret to say that our stock has suffered very severely in consequence of having lost our rudder by a heavy sea striking us within two days’ sail of the Bay of Islands. Up to that time we had only lost three bullocks and six sheep, and I have no doubt had it not been for this accident we should have landed the whole of the remainder. I must inform you that for three days previous to this accident we had the most fearful easterly gale I ever encountered, and no vessel could have behaved better under such circumstances than the Juno. She never made a drop of water during the passage, and the engines worked better than any I have ever seen; an easier vessel in a lee way I never have seen. The accident happened about 8 o’clock P.M. in weather when literally you could not see the end of the bowsprit, together with a fearful sea running; and I can assure you that under such circumstances it required some coolness, as well as mechanical skill, to make out of the main=topmast a rudder that carried us to the Bay of Islands, where we remained refitting her and obtaining a supply of fire-wood, to save as much as possible her coals for the return voyage to Sydney. We were exceedingly fortunate in obtaining the pintles out of a large American ship that had been condemned some time previous, and we have made a first-rate new rudder out of the most durable wood that is known in New Zealand, and we expect to have it shipped by Monday next. This accident is the more to be regretted, as we should have made a most splendid run, and I would undertake, now that we know the trim of the Juno , to do it in seven days from port to port. As no coals can be obtained here, and as the Prince of Wales has completely disappointed us, we shall be obliged to bring her up under canvas, and what is left of her stock of coals, assisted with firewood.”

THE MACQUARIE - Yesterday morning, H.M.S. Racehorse arrived from the Bay of Islands, bringing with her the barque Macquarie, of Hobart Town. It appears that this vessel arrived at the Bay of Island, on the 16th of August, and that on the 19th information was laid against the master, William Campbell for having sold at Russell a musket to some natives of Wangaroa. Ge was summoned to appear before the Resident Magistrate, on the 21st, but sailed out of the harbour on the night of the 20th, without clearing at the Customs. The harbour master, accompanied by the native chief Reppa, immediately put out in pursuit of the vessel, hailed, and ordered her to bring to, which the master with strong language, refused to do. Mr Bateman, having seen a sail that afternoon off the heads, pulled towards it; she fortunately proved to be the Racehorse, which immediately went in chase, using her sweeps. She fired a gun over the Macquarie, which made her bring to, when she was boarded by an officer and boat’s crew, who brought her back to port. Captain Campbell was tried upon three charges – one preferred against him for a breach of the Arms Importation Ordinance, in selling a musket to a native for a pig, for which he was fined £100, or three months imprisonment, in addition to the forfeiture of the vessel to Her Majesty. The two others were preferred by Mr Bateman, sub-collector, for sailing without a certificate or clearance from the Customs, and for resisting that officer in the execution of his duty – upon each of which he was found guilty and fined £100 for each offence. It was given in evidence that the master had been particularly warned when he entered the harbour, by the sub-collector, against selling ammunition or warlike stores of any kind to the natives. His Excellency has been pleased to mitigate the penalty to £200, and ordered the release of ship and master on its payment. New Zealander.

The Thomas Lord had been sold by private contract to Mr Clayton, of Launceston, for £800.
The Comet and Bee have experienced very bad weather since leaving Port Nicholson: the former vessel reports having seen a ship off Terrawiti on the 5th instant, supposed to be the John Fleming, from Sydney and Twofold Bay, with stock, &c., bound for Port Nicholson. The London and Promise had been exceedingly fortunate with the stock they shipped at this port, the former having lost only 330 sheep out of 1700, and the latter 10 head of cattle out of 140 – the horses being landed in excellent condition. The Comet, also, out of 600 sheep shipped at Newcastle, lost only sixteen on the passage. There were no vessels laid on at Port Nicholson for Sydney when the Bee and Comet sailed; the Scotia had proceeded to Bank’s Peninsula, and the destination of the Frolic was undecided on.

SAILING ON THE WEST COAST – A boat with four hands, which left Nelson last summer for the west coast of this island in search of seals, returned here a few weeks ago. At a place known as the Black Reef, or Three Staples, near the mouth of the Buller river, nearly sixty seals were taken, but between that and Open Bay, which was the fartherest point they reached to the southward, only a few were caught, as two boats, with fourteen hands, from the neighbourhood of Otago, had preceded them, and had scaled up the coast from Foveaux Straits to near the Black Reef, which a northerly gale prevented them from gaining. The number of skins obtained by the Nelson boat was sixty-five. During the expedition the men at times suffered greatly from want of provisions, as their principal stock at starting was only 100 lbs. Of bad flour. The entire distance sailed by them in an open boat, on the most stormy and iron-bound coast in New Zealand was little short of 800 miles. A little to the southward of Bluff Point (which was the extremity of Messrs Brunner and Heaphy’s journey last winter) the sealers found the hull of a brig, surrounded by bushes, with a small tree growing through a hole in her bottom, and lying nearly two hundred yards above high-water mark. They supposed it to be the wreck of the Active, a brig which left Sydney for the coast of this island in 1814, and was never afterwards heard of. Whatever was the name of the vessel or the period of her wreck, it is evident that great changes have since taken place on that coast, and that the land has gained on the sea considerably. The vessel, to judge from her position, was run on shore with all sails set, probably in the night, and her crew it is likely fell victims to the natives. – Wellington Independent, Sept. 4

The Macquarie sailed from Hobart Town on the 4th May last, and having been three months and a half out without obtaining oil, she touched at the Bay of Islands for wood and water. While there, as already known, she was seized by order of the Government, in consequence of the master having disposed of a musket to the natives. The vessel, however, was subsequently given up, on the payment of a fine of £200. She has now come up to this port to obtain a refit. Although from Auckland direct she has brought no mail, and not a single paper was to be obtained on board. Captain Campbell, however, reports that the Thomas Lowry, hence the 10th ultimo, with troops, as having arrived there on the 20th; she sailed again on the 6th instant, for the Bay of Islands and Port Nicholson, being still under charter to the Government.

The Inflexible has made an excellent passage of seven days from Auckland. The brig Daniel Watson was to sail from Auckland for Sydney on the 7th, and the Maukin on the 15th instant. The barque Ganges had proceeded to Hokianga to load with spars for Hobart Town. The schooner Pompey had been chartered to convey a cargo of kaurie gum from Kiapara to Auckland. The Avon, hence, arrived at Port Nicholson on the 26th ultimo having had a quick run of twelve days. The Thomas Lowry arrived at Port Nicholson from the Bay of Islands on the 29th ultimo, with foremast sprung, having met with very bad weather on her passage. The schooner Triton sailed from Port Nicholson for Auckland and Hobart Town on the 28th ultimo.
The cutter Swan is now the property of Mr John Russel, of this city (Sydney), having been purchased by him at Auckland for the sum of £275.
The ship Factor, American bottom, from Tahiti, was sold there as abandoned for repairs, and is now owned by Messrs Hart Brothers, of that place, in conjunction with Captain Mc Cook, formerly of the Coquette. She will load with timber hence for the Tahitian market. New Zealander, October 23.

Intelligence was received by the Hero, which arrived on Monday, of the wreck of the Lowestoft, at the Chatham Island, on the 31st August. The Lowestoft (which was under the command of Captain Price) was leaving Wangaroa harbour on her return to Port Nicholson, when the vessel, in tacking, missed stays, and the wind blowing strong from the south, she went on the rocks. It is thought, that she may be floated off, and the Hero returns to the Chatham Island with sufficient casks in order that the attempt may be made. Great complaints are made of the lawless state of the white persons living there; the only apprehensions entertained of ill usage or robbery by those on board the Lowestoft were from these persons, not from the natives, who behaved exceedingly well, and offered all the assistance in their power. The persons alluded to are mostly runaway sailors, and are such bad characters that Pompare will not allow them to live in his pah. – Wellington Spectator, October 6.
