At 6 a.m. of the 20th, whilst going bead to sea, the gave a violent plunge, parted the martingale stay, and the foremost, bowsprit, and jibboom went by the board, — the foremast level with the deck and the bowsprit close to the knightheadi. Upon ex amining the bowsprit it was found that the bolt which secured the bobstay had been broken for some time, the two parts being very rusty, and not having the slightest appearance of a fresh fliw. The foremast in its fall stove the boat, carried away the larboard main crositree, the starboard foremast chain plate of the main rigging and split the mainsail. Jury masts were rigged by making a foremast of the fore yard, a bowsprit of the jibboom, and the toptail yard for a square sail yard, under which rig she has been since the 22nd ultimo.

Kauri Spars. — We perceive an advertisement in the Sydney Herald of the 3rd instant by which Mr. M'Namara invites freight from Kiapara to a port in England or France of about 400 loads of Kauri Spars, and 200 loads of shorter kauri timbtr Our readers will probably recollect that we were the firit in this Journal (Southern Cross) to publish an account of the French scientific experiments with reference to the respective qualities of Kauri, Florida, and Baltic pine ; in which the superiority of the Kauri was so pre eminently demonstrated. This requirement of freight to France may therefore, in all probability, prove the commencement of a new and most advantageous export.
