The ship Lansdowne arrived in harbor on Wednesday morning, after anchoring at the heads all night, as reported in our shipping list of the 20th instant. She brings us dates from Melbourne to the Ist instant. Her passage
over may be considered favorable, having lost but few of her sheep, and experiencing tine weather. The brig Windhover came to her anchorage on Wednesday evening, having left Hobart Town on the 4th May. Nothing particular occurred on her voyage to this port. Capt. James reports having spoken the American ship Illinois, Capt. Potter, about 20 miles from and oft" Akaroa. On or about the loth instant, the whaler caught a sperm whale, yielding about 14 tuns of oil. This was not done, however, we are sorry to say, without the loss of one ot the crew, and nanw escape of the mate. The fish turned round after being struck with the harpoon, and attacked the boat, and according to one of the sailors, "literally chawed it up.'' The whole of the boat's Crew were thus precipitated into the sea, and before a boat from the ship came to the rescue, one of the poor fellows was drowned. The second boat, on reaching the spot, was also struck, knocking the sternpost out of her, and the mate received serious iniurv on the forehead. Capt. Potter desired to be reported. The ship Sebastopol, Captain Duncan Taylor, arrived from London on Thursday evening, after a long passage of about 124 days. She left Gravesend on the 17th January, and encountered heavy gales in the Channel, losing a few sails; lost sight of the land on the 9th February. She brings us 17 cabin and 27 second cabin passengers, besides 205 assisted Government immigrants. Comparatively little illness has occured on board, no deaths, three births, and one marriage. The passengers speak in very high terms of the captain, surgeon, and the officers of the ship for their uniform kindness, courtesy, and skill. A few days before arrival a purse of sovereigns was presented to the captain, in addition to a very flattering testimonial bearing about 230 signatures; also one of a similar character was presented to the chief officer, Mr. W. R. Greeves, signed by all the passengers.
