The ship Electra, 606 tons, Captain John Woodgate, arrived in our harbour on Monday last, after a passage of 111 days from the Downs. She brings considerable cargo for this port, and a number of passengers. Two persons were drowned during the voyage; one an apprentice, named John West, lost during a gale while on watch near the forecastle, on the night of the 26th February ; the other, William Hutcheson, who while skylarking by hanging to the fore-port brace on the night of the 1st of January, fell overboard and was drowned.
