A NAME OF TRUE ROMANCE. [By J. H. AA'atso.v, in the Sydney 'DailyTelegraph.'] ! At the present time the greatest anxiety i is fch concerning- tbo trawler Endeavour. | now long overdue from that isolated ami 1 tlc-solate. spot Macquarie Island, whither she i had gone to take ahnant a iclic-ving party of ibe Hcloorological Dejia-rtmcnt. Having | aoi-:;.i!ripliibcd iliii, and taken on board thoso whv-e term cf duty had expired, she left, j there on December 3 for Melbourne, since which lime she Las not been heard of. I Tho iiamo of this vessel reminds us bow | dial name is assoc’aiod with Austia'.iaa bis* I s ory. There are about a dozen craft, of ! various sizes, which have esc!', in their way a.-M-icd in building "p the commerce of the Empire in ihc-e parts. First there is the Endeavour in which Lieutenant. James Cook voyaged round the whole eastern coast of New Holland. This vessel is described by the Navy Board os "a cai-built bark, inburibcn 3CS tons,'’ which is not to be understood as weaning that she was a barque, because it can he caiherc-J from Cook's log that she wa- square-rigged—that, is, that she carried yiiid.3 on ail her threo masts. Nearly all piitures of tins Endeavour, and models also, inako her a pear a barque, carrying square s;JN oil the* main and fore masts, with a spanker and gaff topsail on the mizzen. The word bark, according to naval authorities, is used to distinguish a purchased merchant shin from a vessel built for a warship : or used in a general way, as is done bv Byron when be speaks of "my bark is on the sev' 1 Nf-xi. arid second in importance, is, the L’dianum Endeavour, which arrived at Sydney May 31. 1795, from Bombay, will) 132 1,(,;d of ci!tie and 500 tons of rice and other .-rain for food. Having discharged his cargo, Captain Bamptcn sailed for Bombay via the coa-t, of New Zealand, raid while running down the ship sprang a. leak, and she was taken into Dusky Sound and beached. Visitors (o that place say her remains r.r- ;o be. -vvii there now. B.unpion and hi'- crew wcaft lucky to lind there a new unSfcmcUed schooner of 60 ions, which Lad been built by ionic- of the crew cf the Britannia two Lars previously, and not used by them. Finishing this craft with rigging from tint Endeavour, a large number of the. crew and passengers stiled' for and reached India in her, ibe remainder building up the, slap’s Fiu’ boat into a schooner, in which they got back, to Sydney. Tho whole story, when fuilv read, is one among many Stirling trua -mries of lin; itriv days, when hardship was 11;. . i-nianiiiii lot hi ail, either coming to or bring ui tlie 'o’.ony. Early :n the last century there was a -cluj■ ,i• r i-hnh-avour owned bv Henry Kable, a inrrciiaii!. C.i hvJncv. and one ot the arrivaN by the f.rst ilt-oi.
