The ' Ellen S. Page' has had a protracted passage, from a succession of continued head winds. She reports the 'Camilla,' hence, having arrired at San Francisco on the 13th August. Passed in lat. 31 S. long. 177 E. a barque, evidently steering for this Port.
The steamer • William the Fourth,' Captain Sullivan, returned from the wreck of the ' Juniper' yesterday morning. By her we learn that the * Juniper.' 340 tons, Captain Stevemon, left Liverpool for Oporto on the 26th February, 1850, with merchandize and 130 tons coals, and left Oporto for Sydney with a full cargo of wine in casks and cases on the 27th April. She rounded Cape Pillar on the 27th August, and from that time to the Ist September had rery thick weather and variable winds. At 10 p.m. on Sunday, the Ist instant, there were heavy iqualls from the southeast and east, and ship labouring very much. At fifteen minute* past ten breakers were reported a-head ; the ship was immediately put about, but before she could gather way, she struck heavily abaft. The helm was then put up, and the ship ran ashore to save lives and property. She lies near St. George's Head, near the spot where the ' Hive,' convict ship, and the schooners ' Blackbird' and ' Medina,' were lost. There is very little probabi'ity of her being got off, as she has seven feet of water in the bold, and is buried in the sand ten feet. If the weather continues moderate, all the cargo will be saved. The only passenger was Mrs. Stevenson, the captain's wife. Mr. Roach and five men went down yesterday in a whale boat on the part of the Customs to look after the dutiable goods. — Sept. 14. Co a t,s from Liverpool for Caiitornia.— The * Ward Chipman,' 750 tons, Capt. Roberts, from Livrroool 15th April, anchored within the Heads on Wednesday last. She is bound for Acu pulco, on the Mexican coast, and has on board 900 torn coal for the United States Pacific Mail Steamship Company. It appears that a mutinous spirit shewed itself among the crew at an early period of the voyage, ten of the hands having struck work for several days, and having only been compelled to turn to again by the stoppage of their provisions. This disaffection is partly to be accounted for, from the misconception by some of them of the length of the voyage they had engaged for, and also by the unusual route by which the ship is being taken to her port of destination. Yesterday morning Captain Roberts arrived at Geelong in his pinnace, bringing with him two of the most refractory of the crew, who, having been brought up at the police office, were committed to gaol for one month, forfeiting their pay. Captain Roberts left for Melbourne in bis boat during the afternoon.— Geelong Advertiser, August 24. Matl Stkam Routes to "West Indies and Brazil —The contemplated arrangement for the renewal of the contract by the English government irith the West India Mail Steam Packet Company has at length been completed, as we learn by the last arrival. The communication to the West Indies and Central America is to be fortnightly, and the route is to be planned so as to insure far more rapid voyages than at present. A main line steamer will leave Southampton every fortnight for the island of St. Thomas, which she will; reach in 12 days. She will there ship mails on board three branch steamers, one to Havana and, the Gulf of Mexico, one to Porto Rico, Hayti, Jamaica, Santiago de Cuba, Honduras and Nicaragua, and one to the windward and lee- [ ward islands, terminating at Demarara, and will then j proceed direct to Chagres, the entire passage to which port will thus occupy not more than 18 or 19 days, in place of 33 days as at present. A contract will also be made with the Pacific Steam Company for a fortnightly mail to Valparaiso from Panama, in place of a monthly one, and by this means Valparaiso will be brought within- 42 days' distance, instead of 60 to 63 days. After the adoption of the new route to the West Indies, no calls will be made either at Bermuda or Mobile. Five new steamers of 2,000 to 2,300 tons, with 800 horse power, are to be built for the service, and they are to maintain a speed of 12 to 14 knots. The only exception to the fortnightly communication will be Mexico and Havana. In those cases it will be monthly. The Brazil line is to be established by the same company, and is to be an independent monthly communication. It is to be commenced, if possible, in August or September next, but as the ships to be employed are some of those which belong to the company's present fleet, (which are to be altered for the purpose) and as the new Vessels to supply their place! on the West India route cannot be ready before a year, there scarcely appears any practicability of the line going into operation at the appointed time. Every possible expedition will, however, doubtless be used. The allowance, by the government, to the company for both the West India and the Brazil service, is
to be the same as that which hat heretofore been^ granted for the former alone, namely, £240,000 per* annum. It is probable that the proposed alteration in the West India route will be carried oat with less delay. The influence of a speedy and regular fortnightly communication with San Juan, will be of vast importance to the destinies of Central America, and also to the interests of the proposed Nicaragua canal.
