The French corvette, Le Rhin, 26 guns, Commodore Berard, arrived in the harbour on Wednesday last. She proceeds shortly to Tahiti, on her way to France.

The brig Nelson, Captain Sedgwick, on her passage to New Zealand, met with the following curious accident. While crossing the line September 23rd, the Nelson was struck by a large sword fish in the counter, about 10 inches from the stern post, the vessel then going at the rate of 6 knots per hour. The sword passed through her copper (which was new), and a 4" plank. The size of the hole was about three inches. Some time elapsed before the hole was found out, and they were assisted in the discovery from the unusual noise made by the rushing of so large a stream of water through the side of the vessel. After moving several tons of stores &c. they fortunately succeeded in stopping the leak from the inside. Wellington Spectator.
