The schooner Lizzie Ellon left Fortroso at 8 a.m. yesterday. Had light variable winds and ! fino weather, and reached Dunedin at 11 am. to-day. The Loch Garry is one of the finest merchantmen in the Glasgow Shipping Company's fleet, and is well known in tho Australian trade. She left Glasgow on May 21 for Melbourne, -with thiity-three passengers and a full cargo. Telegrams received from Heme recently intimated that she had put into Mauritius dismasted. In his report to tho Mauritius ' Commercial Gazette,' Captain Home states that on August 1, in latitude 41deg S.. and longitude 23deg E., the ship foil in with a heavy northerly gale, and beforo dark she was hove-to. At 2 a.m. on the 2nd August tho gale was at its worst, and the wind suddenly shifted in a squall of hurricano violence from N. to W., causirg the ship to come up head to saa. The jibbcom carried away in a heavy pitch, and tho fnretopmast carried away at the cap at 10 am. A tremendous sea was hhipped at the same time, and did considerable damage. About a quarter of an hour after this tho rr aintopmast tarried away at tho cap, and brought tho mizzpn tnpgallantmast with it. The gab raged with unabated fury all day, and the wreckage was cleared away as inncb. as possible, considering the risk and danser attending such work in such weather. At 2 p.m. the mizzjnmast carried away about a foot below the poop deck, and went over tho side, with sails, gear, riiging, and everything else. At 8 p.m. the trouble thickened, and the mainmast carried away te;i feet above the deck, and went over the side In this pitiable and all but unmanageable condition, Captain Hnrne had tho ship cleared as much and as quickly as possible of the wreckage from aloft. Oa the gale moderating the foresail wrs set, and the ship kept away to thd eastward. Finding, however, that she had too much stability, Captain Home consulted with his officers, and, in order to render her moie buoyant, it was considered imperative to jottison cargo. This was done, and au effort was made to navigate tho ship jto Melbourne. Tho Loch Gjrry, however, proved unmanageable in the heavy seas b? which she was beset, and, being caught in another exceptionally heavy gale when nearly south of Mauritius, it was decided to bear up for Mauritius. This was accordingly done, and the Loch Garry arrived at Port Louis on August 2(5. The sompleteness of tho wreck of tho vessel aloft would necessitate almost a new rig and refit. THE COPTIC'S ACCIDENT. Tho Coptic grounded in Rio harbor. Tho I forehold cargo is being discharged, and it is expected that when this hi completed the steamer will sail for Plymouth. Tho mails will bo forwarded by tho Messagories Maritimes at amer. It is reported that 2,000 carcasses of frozon mutton have been damaged. Shipping Telegrams.
