The Southland News, of the 16th ult. saysr— By the arrival of the Fanny, Captain Aker, we are m possession of intelligence respecting the Amherst, Oapt. Gilroy, and the Search Expedition, in charge of Mr Henry Armstrong. The Amherst, after a fair passage arrived at Port Boss, about the 2nd February. The Fanny, at this time, was at anchor in Camp Cove, Caraley Harbor, and her Bur Prised on the arrival (on the 4th of February) of the Amhersfs two boats, in charge of Capt. Gilroy and Mr Armstrong. They «fl?™ come round the west coast, the S,V\\ * 7^ C J\. tlie General Grant was wrecked, 0 auantK aQ y vestiges of the ship or to identify the exact locality of the place where she was lost.

In all their wanderings in search of seal— -which have to be hunted far inland, through dense scrub, ai well as on the beaches, the Fanny's people have found no traces of other castaways than those already known to have so long inhabited the island. .. Th , ce 1 Hoki tika,star, of the 29th February, gives the following account of an accident ontbe HoMtika bar:— lt is our melancholy duty to report & very sad and fatal accident which occurred on the bar to-day, caused by the capsizing of a boat which was attempting to cross about an hour before high water, and by which two men lost their lives. It appears that, tempted by the smoothness of the sea this morning, a party of four men went off in one of the river-boats, for the purpose of fishing in the roadstead. The wind being calm, the break was crossed without difficulty, and they had been at their occupation about two hours, when the wind became much fresher, and gradually a strong breeze set in from the southward, and the sea began to rise. Seeing these indications, the boat turned towards the shore, the sail hoisted, and all haste made to reach the river before the bar became impassable, in which, however, they did not succeed, for ere the boat entered the surf a very considerable sea was breaking on the shore. They, however, pushed for the bar, still keeping the sail set; scarcely had they entered tae break when her sail was observed to flap in the wind, and, coming bioadside on to the sea, she immediately broached-to and capsized, floating keel upwards, the whole of the crew were precipitated into the water, but managed to get on the bottom of the boat, where they clung with the tenacity of men struggling for their lives. However, the boat having by this time drifted well into the surf, this refuge soon became barely tenable, as the sea was making clean breaches over the heads of the unfortunate crew, each of whom was repeatedly washed off, and sometimes the whole of them were struggling in the water at one time to regain their unsafe hold of the boat's keeL On one of these occasions the first man was drowned, as on his comrades regaining their hold he was immediately missed. Another was swept off, and was so exhausted that he was unable to get to the boat again. He shouted to his mates—-' lam sinking ! " but they could afford no assistance. The steamer Idoness, which vessel was coming inside with the Lizzie Coleson in tow, at once told her to anchor, and made all speed to the scene, but unfortunately her progress was impeded by the tow-line. Meanwhile, the Favorite was also coming m from tendering the Egmont, ahd seeing the Lioness hoading for the bar with a tow, had eased steam to allow her to pass in first, but, becoming aware of the accident, she bore down with despatch. Her arrival preceded that of the Lioness, owing to the latter being encumbered with the tow-line, and she, finding that her services were forestalled, immediately returned to her charge. We are informed by an eye-witness, a member of our staff, who happened to be on board the steamer, that three men could bo descried on the boat's bottom from the steamer, but when the next wave had swept over the men, but two of them were visible. These she succeeded in saving, and brought them ashore. The names of the two men who were drowned are Bichardßoyt and Daniel Proud; the latter some time ago formed one of the harbor hoat's-crew. During the afternoon the bodies of the two men were recovered, they having been washed ashore about a mile north of the bar. and were taken by the police to the Oddfellows' Hall to await the inquest. We learn that one of the unfortunate men eaves a wife and family to mourn his loss.
