The preference of shipowners for large cargocarrying vessels is becoming more and more pronounced, and the coarpan’es more paiticularly engaged in the part of the shipping trade in which sailing ships are workrd seem to vie with each other in securing “the largest ship afloat.” The Americins while increasing the tonnage and the number of masts of their ships, have shown a decided fondness for the schooner lig, but the largest and latest-built craft of that design have proved but indifferent successes. The English and Scotch shipbuilders, while converting many of the existing ships of small tonnage to barques, have kept to the square rig for all now craft averaging over 1.000 tons, and recently several four-masters of that style, with a register of 2.00 D, and carrying capacity of 3,000 tons, have been launched, and are now trading with success. A farther advance is now chronicled in that o contract has bicn placed on behalf of Messrs Ant Dcm. Bordes and Son, Paris and Bordeaux, with a firm on the Clyde, who make the building of sadiog ships a specialty, for the construction of a five-masted steel sailing ship, to carry 6,000 tons dead weight. Not only will this be the first Cvemaster, but it will be the largest sailing ship afloat

Fntwistle, from Boston (May 18), arrived at Wllliamstown on Sunday, having been 154 days out from port, and considerably overdue. The gravest fears were entertained as to her safety, consequent on other American vessels which left later than the Ringleader having arrived here before her and reported not having seen her at all. Leaving Boston oh the 18th, the vessel encountered S. and Sl2 winds in the North Atlantic, ard light to moderate winds from the trades latitude until crossing the Ffjuator on .tune 20, in 40deg 30min W. Th j n she was brealmed for foity-cight hours, and at the same time there was a three-knot cuTont to the westward, which swept her over t > 45deg 30min W. Then she had light cas'erly and southeasterly winds and gales, and she ha 1 to work to the eastward to get < ft' the land. She got back again to latitude Bdeg N. and 44deg 20min W. on the 2nd July, still trying to get to the eastward. Between latitude 6d( g and Bdeg N. she had very light airs, and only made from fifteen to twenty miles a day longitude, 30deg 30min W. and Gdeg 30min N. on 251h July, when B.E. winds set in. She crossed the Equator again on 30th July in 32deg 30nin W,, and had strong t-> moderate breezes from south, and a high sea to latitude 8 leg S. and 34deg W., which wes reached on the 9th August. Then she had moderate S E. winds going to N.E. ns she. got south until 25th August in latitude 27deg 34min S. and IGdeg W. Then she had moderate winds from the N.W, and W. to the Cape of Good Hope, the longitude of which wasreached on the lltb September in 38deg 30min 8. "he easting was run down from longi tude 421fg to latitude 43deg S , and the winds were mostly from the N.W. and N. On September 26, in 41deg 40min 8. and 58deg 35min B. she was exposed t<> a heavy gale from the westward, with a very high sea and heavy weather. Tim gale lasted for thirty-six hours, and the vessel had to run under reefed foresail and topsail during the time it raged. After that the winds were fresh and moderate and the weather fine. The meridian of Cape Leeuwin was crossed on October 10, and the winds thence were mostly N. and W., fresh until arrival. The vessel, which is in first-rate order, was regarded as lost, as much as seventy guineas being paid as a premium on her on Friday last. She was nearly two months overdue. THE DIRECT STEAMERS.
