The sdipon'T Janet Ramsay, which ix ljiauuuJ by a com mon wealth crow compi the captaiu and eight bauds, sailul from Port '.'halmers on January 21 ou a cruise to the Mac'iuarie's iu search of sea olephants' oil. The vessel had a fair run down to hor destination, but twice drifted from tho island, managing on both occasions to return to an anchorage on the following day. They next proceeded to Caroline Cove, but wero unsuccessful in effecting a landing there, and were diivcn away towards Emerald Isle. It was six weeks before they were enabled to reach Caroline Cove again, and there they remained for thirty-three days, vainly seeking to obtain a landing. In Eutting back to tho Macquaries the ship had er mainsail and staysail, together with two stanchions and put of her bulwarks, carried away ; and she also Bprang a leak. It was then decided to mako tor tho Auoklands, -which wero reached on May 25, where the casks and ballast wtie unloaded and the vessel beached, enabling the bulwarks to be mf nded, tho deckß caulked, and other repairs effected. At this place tho crew found an official notico posted to the effect that tho close season for seals would expire on tho Ist June, and as they had been so unsuecosbful with their own expedition it was decided to put in sime time in hunting for soils. They accordingly lifted anchor on June 2, and in a thort time captured seventyseven seals, but provisions running short it was decided to steer a course for Port Chalmers, which was reached after a fair weather passage of about five days. It was not un'i! they reached Port Chalmers that the crew discovered that they had beon acting illegally, the close season having l>ccn extended during their absence unt 1 December. Tho facts were brought uader tho notico of Sir Robert Stout, who at once wired to the Premier suggesting that tho men should bo freed from any liability for having unwittingly broken the law.
