Bay of Islands.
All hostilities have for a time ceased. The 99th Regiment are very sickly, and are coming to Auckland, to be replaced by the remainder of the 58th Regiment from Auckland. Monopoly of trade under cover of a blockade, is exceedingly profitable.

Shipwreck and Mutiny. The vessel is the "New Zealand," recently built, and one of the finest ships in the British Navy. She sailed from England in 1839 for the South Seas, under command of Capt. Patrick. Her Captain however, dying, the command devolved upon the first Lieutenant, Mr Willoughby, who held it creditably, until the arrival from England of Captain Kingson. It seemed the new commander wished to try a system of navigation lately invented by Hall, of Exter. His first act was to discharge his first lieutenant. She was not long under her new commander, before owing it is supposed to a miscalculation, she struck upon Landfund shoal, damaged her false keel, and spring a leak, which let water into her magazine and spirit store, owing to the bad cooper-age. Shortly after this accident, the crew began to show symptoms of mutiny, the ring-leader, named John Akay. Akay and his followers commenced to rob the passengers. Things were in a state when she struck upon Bankrupt reef. Thomas Walker one of the petty officers keeps the mutineers at bay but they have not been put down. Flax and gum make by far the best material for stopping leaks over American paper oakum. Lost of life has been great.

Shipwreck of the barque Tyne, Captain Charles Robertson, from London to Wellington. Wrecked in entering the harbour of Port Nicholson, on the 4th July last, when she went ashore, in a tremendous gale from the south-east, at 5h 30min, p.m., at Sinclair's Head. On the 5th, at noon, the third mate and one seaman swarm on shore, and were picked up by a shepherd, who proceeded to Port Nicholson, arriving there at 4 p.m. and at 8 o'clock the following morning three companies of the Wellington militia, and a detachment of the 96th Regiment, were despatched to the assistance of the vessel. By noon, on the 6th, all the persons on board were safely landed, by means of a rope, from the ship to the shore, and at the same time, about ten mail boxes were picked up along the beach. On the 8th the Uncle Sam was going into Port Nicholson with the remainder of the main, as the Hannah was leaving. There was only one cabin passenger on board the Tyne. All the cargo, inclusive of 5150 sovereigns is lost. There was a guard of militia constantly protecting the wreck.

Wreck of the Mary. 17 lives lost.
The Mary for London with a valuable cargo and a total crew and passengers of 59 souls on board left Sydney on May 19. Captain R.H. Newby determined to attempt the westerly passage, and accordingly stood into Bass's Straits. On the morning of the 24th may, the Mary was off Wilson's Promontory, when the wind suddenly died away. He ran towards the southward of Kent's Group. Broken water was discover. There was no wind to make the ship answer her helm, she refused stays, and drove broadside on the rock. In seven minutes from the time she struck the ship was in pieces. Seventeen women and children were drowned. Those were three of Captain Newby's daughters: six children of a Mrs Evans, Augusta and Catherine, daughters of Captain Collins of Illawarra, Mrs Heather and two children, Mrs Sarah Grey, Mrs Turnbull, and Sarah Foulkes, servant to Mrs Collins. After getting clear of the wreck, the long-boat bore off for the NW point of Flinder's Island, where it arrived the following morning. Captain Newby then set out to find the settlement (where natives of Van Dieman's Land reside). As soon as he arrived at the settlement - bread and other provisions were sent to the party, however he did not arrive thee until 1st June. ... more details saved the parties as Messrs Henry, Raven, Dewling, Bateman, Carter, Friend...

On Saturday last, the Louisa Campbell arrived from England, via Nelson and Wellington. She left Plymouth on the 21st March, and arrived at Nelson on the 9th July. The mail from England direct is very small, on account of the Tyne having just previously sailed with a large one. The mail boxes which were saved from the wreck of that vessel, at Port Nicholson, have not yet arrived here, having been put aboard the American brig Falco, which according to the Wellington newspapers sailed from that port on the 18th of July, for Auckland. It is reported that the Falco has been seized by the North Star, at Whangaroa for breach of blockade. The mail by the Tyne arrived on the 5th July, at Wellington from England, nearly two months since. If some immediate measures are not adopted to secure regular communication with the Southern settlements, we would advise the settlers throughout the Colony to petition the Government upon the subject. But the only hope for the redress of this, as well as other obvious grievances, is a proper system of legislative representation.

H.M.S. Harzard, Captain Egerton, proceeded to the Bay of Islands on Tuesday last, and the barque Slains Castle, with 130 men of the 99th Regt. will proceed likewise on Monday next.

From the Wellington Spectator
The wreck and portion of the Tyne's cargo was sold by public auction by Messrs Bethune and Hunter, at Rima Ripa rocks, about 10 miles from Wellington. Not less than 400 persons present. The wreck, including cables, anchors and all belonging to the vessel as she lay below high-water mark, was sold to Mr D. Scott for 35.  The portions of rigging &c. saved, was sold for 26. The longboat was knocked down to the same purchaser for 12. A bale of unbleached calico was sold for 22. and many other lost obtained equally high prices. The day's sale precluded 512. and on this sum salvage was claimed. The remainder of the cargo, brought in by the Uncle Sam, was sold on Wednesday for 142. As the amount of the salvage exceeded the amount of duty, according to the Act of Parliament, no duty could be levied. The amount of duties lost to the Government is estimated at 1000, enough to have built a lighthouse, which, had it, existed, might have prevented the possibility of such a misfortunate.

Saturday 30th August 1845
The greatest anxiety prevails in Auckland, respecting the English mails which were put aboard the Falco, which cleared out for Auckland and the Feejee islands on the 18th July. We consider the Post master at Wellington highly culpable, for trusting important English mails to the care of a foreign vessel, not at all amenable to the English law, regarding the Post Office. From the length of time since her sailing from Port Nicholson, she must either have been wrecked on the East coast, or gone away to the Feegees direct. The latter, we think most probable, for she was accompanied from Port Nicholson, by her tender, the Uncle Sam, and as no tidings whatever have been heard of them, by vessels from the East coast, it may be anticipated, that during the heavy gales both stood away from land, and went northward.

The "Falco"
There is every reason to believe that this vessel has gone direct to the South Sea Islands. it is more than probable that when she left America, the Government of that country were quite aware of the annunciation that would be sequently made, by the President regarding Texas and Oregon, and that the Counsul for these islands, furnished, as it is said, with more extensive powers than when previously in these seas, would have some secret orders to execute, in reference to the critical state of affairs between Great Britain and America, in the Pacific ocean. The cargo of 15 cases muskets, 400 kegs gunpowder, 40 pigs lead, and 500 rockets, are intended, very likely, for the St. Louis, or any other American vessel of war, that may be cruising among the Polynesian isles; and the American Consul, judging that about the time of his arrival here - if he did come at all - the news of the hostile intention of of his countrymen would have reached Auckland and might lead to detention of his munitions of war, thought it more prudent to go directly among the whalers and put them on their guard. If, perchance, the Falco, meets with a vessel bound to Sydney, or to this Colony, the mail of the Tyne may, perhaps arrive here some time before 1846. - -So much for the management of the Post - office at Wellington.

Shipwreck and plunder of the American brig Falco. Summarized
The arrival in our port of the small schooner, Uncle Sam, on Wednesday last, proved that our surmises were incorrect. The Falco was wrecked on the the Eastern coast, to the northward of Hawke's Bay and Table Cape, on the night of the 26th of July, in the same tremendous gale from the NE, which occasioned so much damage in the town and neighbourhood of Auckland. Had it not been for the villainous piracy of Europeans, aided by the natives, the vessel, and all the important mail would have been saved. Annexed account. There are above seven hundred packages of gunpowder &c in the hands of the robbers and most probably very soon be distributed among the Natives.

The brig Falco, sailed from Boston on the 19th Nov. 1844, on a trading voyage to the South Sea Islands. She touched on her way at Swan River, King's George Sound, and Adelaide, and arrived in June last at Port Nicholson, and sailed thence with the Government mails on board (six large bags) for Auckland, via Table Cape, having previously obtained permission from the Collector of Customs of Wellington, to touch on the coast for a supply of provisions for the crew of the vessel on her intended trip to the islands. She arrived off Table Cape on the afternoon on the 26th July, and anchored at a place called Wangawai (where the Governor Hobson foundered, and all hands perished, about two years ago), and on the following day it commenced bowing fresh from the North, veering to NE. Soon after midnight she passed through the breakers, over a reef and then struck rocks and sand, on a steep bold shore.

Natives in concert with Europeans, assembled from all the whaling stations in the neigbourhood, and composed of the greatest ruffians in existence, rushed on board the vessel, and hemmed in the captain and officers on the quarter deck, broke open the hatches and destroying and carrying away the cargo. The mail bags and boxes were opened, and their contents scattered into the hold, and about the beach, all the letters likely to contain any inclosures were opened as well as the Government despatches, several of which were seen in the hands of the natives offering them for sale; ten figs of tobacco for a large one, and so in proportion down to one fig for an ordinary sized letter. In the work of destruction on the cargo-and mail bags (and what they thought not worth pillaging, they destroyed), the whites were even more eager than the natives, and seemed particularly pleased in tearing the Government despatches. One European was seen opening a private letter, and abstracting its contents, which appeared to be Bank notes of the Wellington branch, and several others did the same. Among the letters were some for Mrs Fitzroy, Mr Keesing, Mr Kempthorne, Mr Buttry, Messrs Graham and Dickson, with a bill of lading, Mr Church, Rev. Mr Churton, and in fact for almost every individual of note in and about Auckland. However, it is gratifying to know that all or most of the letters &c were recovered, through the exertion of the Counsul. At the time these proceedings were going on in the hold, several Europeans were busy in the work of destruction in the cabin, braking into the lockers and carrying away everything they thought might be useful to them, and destroying that which would be of no service to them in the bush. They then began to strip the hull, tearing off the copper, cutting the main rails, stauncheons, bulwarks &c., and destroying with axes taken out of the hold, the hull in every part.

The whole affair continued until the arrival of Archdeacon Williams from Poverty Bay, on the 2nd August. To mark a sense of their misconduct, he refused to hold native service on the Sabbath. A committee met at the place of the wreck. Present were Mr P.B. Perry, of Waikokopu. The American Consul, Mr Brown, Mr Ellis, and several of the Europeans implicated. Some natives having brought intelligence that a concerted attack was to be made on Mr Perry's house by the whites, Mr Williams' treasures being stored there, on which 200 natives were set on nightly guard. On Monday the 19th, a sale of all the remaining portions of the cargo took place, subject to duties levied by the Government. The powder, muskets, rockets and lead were sold on the condition of not being resold in New Zealand, without the sanction of Government, in consequence of present hostilities. The wreck was sold for 35. The fisheries are all broken up, almost all the whalers have retired into the bush, to enjoy their portion of the spoil.
