We learn from the Tiinarn of to-day, that a survey of the ship City of Perth was held yesterday afternoon, with the result that it was decided to abandon her. The vessel was sold as she lay, this afternoon. A sale of damaged wheat from and on board the City of Forth took place yesterday, through Messrs R. Wilkin and Co. About 3GO sacks of slightly damaged grain, landed and in store, sold at 12s, l2s 6d and 13s per sack, in small lots. The wheat remaining on board, 3,000 sacks more or lass, was bought by the captain of the vessel for LlO. This of course is all damaged, the Underwriters having got out all that was sound. No more of the bodies of those drowned on the 14th inst. had boon recovered up to last evening. It was reported yesterday afternoon that a body had been seen floating off Dashing Point, and Mr Graham, manager of the Landing Service, at once sent a boat down to try and recover it. On arriving off the Point, there was no sign of it, and the constable stationed on shore stated that ho had not seen it. It will be remembered that one of the three victims of the lalo boat accidents was buried as a “man unknown.” Ho was most comm mly supposed to be a man named Cooper, late boats vain of the Campsie Glen ; but this is now disproved, Cooper having written to the Royal hotel, from Lyttelton, asking to have his kit sent up to him. It was the fact of his things being loft at the hotel, while Cooper himself did not put in an appearance, that led at least in part, to the supposition that the unidentified body was his. W. J. M'Laren, the, whoso body was the last found, was buried yesterday.
