yards, th» fortmait lUll standing. "• I helped them along th gaff and yards m ioou m possible, ■ At this timo the squall wai fearfully htavr, with wind and rain, and lightning vtry vivid, and bltttr cold. Tin cook was strong find active, but poor I/aws, tlit steward, very weak and dispirited, begging of us not to leave him. AYe told him we ware not going to, and it would Ml be right yet. The foremast thon came down on the port side with n crash, mid we were liftod bodily higher up The last chance was come— the chain cit-«toppor was hunting down fiom the bow, and as the' heavy sea recedod fiom the rocks the cook dropped down by tho stopper. Wo then passed poor Laws over tho bows to him and he got him in his arms, but ho seemed peifectly helpless I then attempted to go, but another feaifuf sea came over everything, tearing tht bows asunder, and carrying me right down in the middle of it. I got severely knockod about, and felt my left arm and leg nearly crashed, but hold on hard with tho right arm, as I had never let go tho cat-stopper. After recovering a bit I found I could do nothing but hold on as long as I could, tho bone of the left leg baie. I remained thus till about 4 a in. next morning, when I managed to crawl up the sund and rocks from tho small remaindor of the wreck, and got up out of the reach of the sea During this timo the g»lo, If anything, increased In violence. When daylight broke a fearful scone of wreck and ruin presontod itself, overything crushod up, and tho timbei high up on the rocks and beach. AVhen broad daylight came I found tho cook hanging to the rocks close to me. Ho told me poor Laws was washed out of his arms iu the last heavy sea, and himself knocked about greatly The mate and tho men came down tome, and a truly miserable appearance all had I then found Mr and Mrs Itankin (teachers of the National School, Lismoro) and Mr. Tester, passengeis , Jsllis, Elliott, G Phillips, Thomas Laws, and Mr. Hunter (chief engineer), weie Missing I told thorn (tho crew) I nas severely injured, and they must carry mo up a little higher As there was no food, nor any possibility of getting any, tho crew and mate then loft for Port Stephen*. The cook came to me, and told me he would stick by me till assistance came — this was Friday morning "Wo thon remained (tho cook and ni) self), without covering or any fire, on the beach till Sunday morning. AVhen I found neither of us could hold up much longer, tho cook started by himself foi Port Stephens to get assistance for me, and I remained by myself till 2pm on Monday, whou Mr Bunelland his son made theh appeaiance, hawng been attracted by part of tho wreck. They, in the kindest manner, put me on their horse, and t»ok me home , Mm Bramble finding me a dressing for my leg, which was very bad : and promised me to go out directly on the track of the cook. On coming down tho myal lakes into Port Stephens, in Mr Bramble's boat, \i e fell in with the Telegraph ketch , they had got the cook on board, and hart everything ready for a search for me in the morning We landed in the eveuing at Mr Mjers', about thirteen miles from Rajmond Terraco, who kindly entertained us, and drovo us on to the Terrace in time for the Collaioy On arriving at Newcastle, Captain Allen, the harbour master, told mo the crew had gone down to Sjdncy by the pievious day'-, boat, and immediately he heard from them about the wieck he had sent the Government steam tug Dorothy to Rock Bay in sonrch of us — I am, Ac, W.

It was some time before tins was discovered, but immediately on the discovery being made the pumps were set to work, but wcie hardly able lo keep the vessel afloat till the damages could be lemedied Since this gale Captain Danveis repoits that he has experienced very fine weath»r, except on Friday last The Countess of Seafield has on board a quantity of ironwork for theiailway at Canterbury, and is otherwise heavily laden , and to this fact, we think, a good deal of the loss of life and damage to the vessel may be ascribed It is intended to place the vessel on one of the slips, and have her thoioughly repaired, after which she will proceed on her voyage to Cantcibury — " Hobart Town Advertiser "
