Jul 28, 1840 st. ship Buffalo, Master James Wood Wrecked off New Zealand: Loss of the Buffalo Store-Ship.
This ship was at anchor in Mercury Bay, New Zealand, on the 26th July on which day it came on to blow a most powerful gale, and continued so for three days. Every preparation was made for encountering it by striking lower-top masts, and letting go all the anchors; but, not withstanding all these precautions, the ship parted from them, and by the coolness and good management of her commander, Mr. J. Wood, she was run ashore, and all the crew saved, with the exception of one poor unfortunate seaman, named Moore, and a boy by the name of Cornes, both belonging to Chatham. The ship is now high and dry at low water, on the beach, and is completely gone to pieces; and the crew were fully employed in saving what stores and provisions they could from the wreck. A great portion of the ship's company was at the time in the woods, cutting and transporting timber; but on hearing of the loss of the ship, they went from Cook's Bay, in an open boat, to the assistance of their shipmates and in so doing this they met with most severe weather, and were compelled to run into a creek to ride out a gale. At the slate of the information, August 6, a ship was standing into Mercury Bay, to convey the officers and crew who had been encamped on the beach to Sydney whence they would come to England.

On Tuesday, the 10th instant, the Osprey made the western coast, and was enabled to take an observation, which proved that she was in the latitude of Hokianga ; but the weather coming on thick and hazy, she kept off the land until the evening, when it cleared away. She then stood in, fired two guns to announce to the pilot at Hokianga, that she was off the harbour, and again stood to sea for the night. On the following morning, on nearing the coast, a high southern headland, similar to Hokianga, was seen, with what was presumed to be the pilot's house ; but which, subsequently, proved to be a white spot on the cliff. Soon afterwards, perceiving a red flag run up, it was confidently anticipated that it was the entrance of the Hokianga, and the brig stood on, over the surf, bringing the northern and southern heads in one. After crossing the breakers, which were judged to be the three of Hokianga, the vessel touched ground; but it was thought that she was just merely on the bar, over which she would soon forge ; but almost immediately, she struck again, with increased violence, and succession of shocks brought the alarming conviction that she was ashore ; and that it was not the entrance to Hokianga. but that of Haere-kino or False Hokianga. The guns were instantly hove overboard, and the masts cutaway, which falling, with the sails set, towards the shore, dragged the vessel still higher on the beach. On the tide receding, the vessel being about half way between high and low water mark, the officers and crew were enabled to land, about two o'clock on Thursday morning, with their small arms and some dry ammunition, which had been fortunately saved on deck, the greater part having been thrown overboard. The vessel stands upright on her keel, in the sand, and is but slightly injured, the heel of the keel only being knocked away. .The stores are being landed, and the crew are assisted by one hundred and fifty natives, who are well disposed, and behave very friendly and peaceably. Two of them had been caught pilfering, and had been taken into custody. After the stores are all taken out of the Osprey, there is no hope of her floating, without a number of empty casks to raise her, or of hauling her off. The shore, on that part of the western coast is extremely shallow for a long distance outwards, with a heavy surf and breakers continually rolling in, even when the wind is off the land ; so that no vessel of proper size and power could approach with safety, sufficiently near to render the Osprey efficient assistance is hauling off. This untoward circumstance has arisen, it appears, from mistaking the headlands; and likewise, from being misled, by the hoisting of the red flag, similar to the practice at the true Hokianga, to apprise vessels that there is sufficient water for them on the bar. From information we have received, we learn that this little harbour of Haere-kino is precisely a miniature of Hokianga, and the principal native chief has adopted the plan of the pilot at the latter place, to announce high water to the smaller vessels that may approach his settlement. We consider that some measures should be taken to prevent in future recurrence of similar disasters to large vessels. The harbour of Hokianga, itself, although a bar harbour, can be approached and entered, with proper precautions ; therefore, the accident should not, in any degree, tend to the detraction of it. If some wooden beacon, or some other land mark, was erected at Haere-kino, and public notice given, the access to Hokianga would be more easily ascertained, and the strand of Haere-kino more certainly avoided. The Aurora, schooner, of Hokianga, is employed to convey the stores of the Osprey to that port, and the Adelaide, brig, has sailed from here, to take them on board for their ultimate destination. H.M.S. Racehorse, likewise, sailed on Thursday morning, for the Bay of Islands, to be in communication with the officers and crew of the Osprey.
Feb 3, 1847 Steam sloop Thunderbolt, 6 Com. Alexander Boyle Wrecked on Cape Recife, S Africa - Loss of HM Steam Sloop Thunderbolt.- On Sunday evening, an express arrived from Port Elizabeth, communicating to the Admiral, the painful intelligence of the loss of the Thunderbolt, at the entrance of Algoa Bay. The following particulars are extracted from a letter inserted in the Graham's Town Journal, dated Port Elizabeth, February 4 :- "Yesterday evening, at about five o'clock. the smoke of a steamer was seen over the sandy point, apparently rounding Cape Recife, and nearly at the same time the report of five or six guns were heard at intervals. The inhabitants were all on the qui vive, supposing it probable that this steamer was the bearer of our new Governor, and the guns excited no particular attention. Soon afterwards it was seen to be the Thunderbolt rather close in shore, and although to all appearance with all her steam up, she appeared to be making but little way, and to be deep in the water. As she neared the anchorage, it was discovered that her ensign was reversed, and then for the first time it became evident some accident had happened. Her close approach to the shore excited the alarm of the spectators. when in a few minutes it proved to be the intention to bring on the beach, and accordingly she grounded in an upright position, some distance out, nearly opposite the Baakens River. The port boat had been for some time alongside of her ; other boats put off to her assistance. The first which returned brought the unfortunate intelligence, that she had struck on one of the outer points of Cape Recife, had passed over the rock, but that immediately afterwards six feet of water were found in her hold, and that it was with great difficulty she had been kept afloat. This beautiful vessel is this morning in the same position, and the weather being very mild exertions are making to land her stores, &c., but scarcely any hopes are entertained of getting her off. She had been sent round from Simon's Bay for the 90th Regiment, and had only two or three steerage passengers."-Cape of Good Hope Shipping and Mercantile Gazette, February 12.

Dec 20, 1847 steam frigate Avenger, 6 Capt. Chas. Geo Elers Napier,* Wrecked on Sorelle Rocks, Mediterranean: 246 lost. The Avenger - Court Martial.- A court-martial assembled on the 31st of January, on board the Trafalgar, to try Lieutenant Rooke and the survivors of the Avenger, for the loss of that ship on the Sorella rocks, of Galita, on the night of the 20th December, 1847. The court lasted two days. The following sentence was read by the officiating Judge-Advocate: The court, after having the narrative of Lieutenant Rooke read, and the evidence adduced, are of opinion that the Avenger was as wrecked on a reef of rocks, about ten o'clock on the evening of the 20th of December last, but there is not sufficient cause shown in the evidence to account for the accident. No blame is attached to Lieutenant Rooke, or the other prisoners, and they are fully acquitted. The court consider the conduct of Lieutenant Rooke to have been proper, in lowering the cutter, as he was acting in obedience to orders given. The court consider the conduct of Lieutenant Rooke, in laying off the ship to save the lives of any who might seek safety, and his persevering efforts for the same object in returning to the vessel from Tunis, to have been most praiseworthy and humane. The court cannot separate without expressing their warm approbation of the conduct of Mr. Larcom through- out the trying scene. The court warmly eulogise the humanity of the Arabs, who assisted the sufferers on their reaching land. The court have very considerable doubts if the Avenger had the Admiralty charts of the Mediterranean on board. The court fully and entirely acquit the prisoners. The President, calling Lieutenant Francis Rooke, thus ad-dressed him:-" Lieutenant Rooke.- It is needless for me to make any comment, after the expression of the opinion of the court you have just heard and read, and I have the greatest pleasure in returning you your sword."
