Total Wreck of the Barque Torquil
By the arrival, on the 12th, of the schooner Mariner, Captain Stroud, from Parengarenga, North Cape, we regret to learn of the total loss of the barque Torquil on this coast, from Malden Island with guano, bound to Hobart Town, but fortunately without loss of life, Captain Knarston, a portion of his crew, and two passengers, having arrived by the Mariner.
The barque Torquil, 294 tons, Captain R Knarston, left Malden Island bound to Hobart Two, with 400 tons guano, eleven of a crew and four passengers, on the 5th May. Called at the island of Tongataboo to recruit. After leaving there everything went well until 100 miles to the north-east of New Zealand on the 3rd inst., when she sprung a leak. After the crew having been at the pumps nearly night and day incessantly, she put into port at Spirits Bay near Cape Maria Van Diemen on the 7th in order to repair damages. All succeeded to get to shore without loss of life. Capt. Knarston travelled overland to Parengarenga and reported the disaster. ….

We understand that Mr. Barnes, the shipbuilder of Gloucester, has just contracted, through Messrs Muirhead, Parkes, and Co., of London, to build for James Duncan, Esq., of Otago, New Zealand, a new clipper ship, of 600 tons, to be named the William Cargill, and the name is chosen from association with the Colony. William Cargill being the first Superintendent of the Province of Otago ; it also being the name of the father of Mrs Duncan, the "lady of the owner. The vessel is to be fitted up with all modern improvements in hull and spars, and her cabin will be unsurpassed for comfort and general finish. The saloon will be constructed of polished oak and bird's eye maple, relieved with gold and velvet upholstery. She is intended for the Colonial trade, and will be commanded by her owner, who has made the most nourishing and most important Province of Otago his home; and should sufficient inducement offer in the way of passengers she will sail, when complete, direct from Gloucester to New Zealand. It may be added that the same owner has a vessel now in London, called the Prospector, of Otago, chartered by Muirhead, Parkes, and Co., now loading, and will sail about the 10 th of July for Invercargill. She will be commanded by Captain Thomson, late chief officer of the same vessel, and who is identified with the Colony, thus offering a first-rate opportunity for all classes of passengers. We understand that Mr Barns has also contracted with a firm of the name of Wilson and Co., of Pernambuco, for the building of three three- masted schooners, thus showing an increase in the ship-building trade at Gloucester. — Bristol Daily Post.

Messrs Balrymple and Co. have received a telegraphic message stating that the Planet, from Dunedin to Wanganui, was totally lost on September 20th. The particulars are not known. The steamer St. Kilda has sailed from Wellington for the Chatham Islands, with, stores for the Maori prisoners. It is understood that a few of the prisoners, who have conducted themselves well, will be brought back by the same vessel, and liberated.

The steamer Auckland has taken 407 ounces of gold from Auckland to Sydney, being the first export of the product of the Thames reefs. 322 ounces were on account of the Bank of New Zealand, and 85 ounces the Union Bank of Australia. The same steamer also took a shipment of 171 bundles of flax papers notice the shipment for New Zealand of four pure-bred Durham bulls, ten pure-bred, and one hundred picked heifers, selected from the herds of Messrs Christie and Wentworth. The bulls and heifers had taken prizes at the Agricultural Show at Mudgee.

Mr Jackson, boat-builder, Port Chalmers, lately contracted to build three boats to be placed upon the Waitaki river by the Provincial Government. The beats have Just been finished, and, by competent judges, they are considered to be exceedingly well adapted for the purpose to which they are to be applied, and to he most substantially built and neatly finished. They are built on the model of the Norwegian "prahm," and are well calculated to do safely the ferry work of such a stream as the Waitaki. The largest of the three is 29 feet in length, with 9 feet of beam, and 2 feet deep. The two others are 24 feet long, 7 feet 8 inches in beam, and the same depth as the largest boat. The timber used in their construction is kauri pine, and they are all, of course, copper-fastened, and otherwise finished according to specification ; the work having been done under the inspection of Mr Hamilton, acting for the Provincial Government. In a few days they are to be removed from the rather elevated situation in which they have been built, and will be forwarded by sea or overland to their destination.

The immigrants by the ship Echunga, from London, were brought up to town on Monday forenoon. The ship had, in all, 82 passengers, of whom there were equal to 35 statute adults assisted, 15 domestic servants being included. The 15 were all" engaged yesterday, at wages ranging from L30 to L 35, mostly as servants in town, for which, rather than for "country places, they are suited. The Vicksburg, from Glasgow, which vessel preceded the Echunga, brought, in all, 210 passengers, of whom 119 were assisted. The 119 comprised 32 female servants, 31 unmarried men, and 56 members of families. The only difficulty experienced in getting employment by any of the 210, has been in the case of two families, of which the children were all young. Such parents have disinclination to take farm work ; they have not, indeed, the conveniences for locating themselves and their children up country ; and there is no doubt that farmers have an objection to employ men and women with large families of young children. In other cases of immigrants by the Vicksburg, where the families were grown up, every member was engaged on the first or second day after landing ; and the sons and daughters wore thus well - placed for giving aid, if necessary, to the parents. That, in the case of families of young children there should be an undue looking for Government assistance, is an evil, but it is one worthy of little or no consideration in comparison with the other evil, that any immigrants should have the least reason for dissatisfaction on starting in a new land. — The Star of Tasmania, from London, has not any assisted immigrants on board ; but the William Davie, from Glasgow, which is due about the end of the month, has 110 passengers, of whom 80 are assisted.

A brown bear, brought by the Captain of the Parisian from Vancouver Island, and purchased by Mr S. G. Isaacs, has, under the care of its new owner, become quite domesticated. It will follow Mr Isaacs about like a dog, will eat from his hand, will engage in mimic right with him, and is so tame that any one may approach it without danger.

The ship Chile, which was to sail from London on August 31st, and the Robert Henderson, advertised to leave Glasgow on September 4th, will ear-h have on board about 40 adult assisted immigrants for this Province.

A large number of larks, linnets, swallows, thrushes, magpies, &c, were shipped at London, at the cost of the Society, but not a single specimen survived the severe weather ; although a few larks brought out by one of the passengers on board, Mr Sims, have arrived safely. By the Electra, which has arrived at Wellington, very fine rams have been received by Messrs Moore, and Guthrie ; and a fine draught entire has been brought out by Mr Scarth.

Poem - The Emigrants's Address to his Native River

Ah! shall I never once again
Upon thy blissful bosom be,
Or catch the eels beneath the stones
Or see the shadow of the sky.
