The schooner Sarah, from Wellington, and the schooner Atalanta from the coast, arrived in port yesterday afternoon. The Active sailed for Melbourne via Taranaki, on Monday afternoon, with a considerable amount of Nelson produce, iucluding 1,800 bushels oats, and a small parcel of gold dust. The General Wool is loading with oats and potatoes at Motueka, and will sail for Melbourne about the end of next week. The brig Burnett, Captain Scaplehorn, arrived from Sydney, via Wellington, on Wednesday. She left Wellington on Saturday last, but was detained at the Heads by bad weather until Monday afternoon, when she had a quick run of six hours into Blind Bay, but was detained in the Bay by calm weather until the Wednesday. The mail-packet Marchioness sailed from Wellington, for Melbourne, on Saturday, but was also detained at the Heads, in company with the Burnett, until the Monday. The Burmah was to sail for Nelson with the first fair wind. The carpenter of the Burmah was drowned on Friday last, in consequence of the capsizing of a boat alongside of the vessel. The brig Spray, Captain Scott, was discharging her cargo at Wellington when the Burnett left, but it was not known whether Captain Scott would come on to Nelson, or go direct to Sydney with a cargo of potatoes. The schooner Ocean Queen, which left Nelson on the 4th May, had not arrived at Sydney on the 19th May. The steamer Tasmanian Maid, on her trip to Collingwood on Monday, stuck on a sandbank in the Aorere river, and did not get off till the folio wing tide. She did not reach Nelson, in consequence, until Wednesday afternoon. In the Sydney Herald of the 19th May, theWilh'am Alfred is advertised to sail in ten days for Wellington, calling at Nelson. The self-righting properties of the life-boat recently received from England, were tried on the 18th ultimo in Sydney harbour, in the presence of the GovernorGeneral. Thirty-eight men, standing on the boatV gunwale, were unable to pull it to the water's edge. The trial was said to,ty? .altogether most satisfactory. Total Loss of the Emigrant Ship Windsob. — By the arrival at Southampton of the Medway steamer, with the Brazilian mails, we have received from St. Vincent's a copy of the first number of the Argo, a small folio weekly journal of the cruise of the steamship Argo from Portsmouth to Madras, with the left wing of the 68th infantry, edited and priuted on board.' *Fo our truly nautical contemporary we are indebted for the following particulars of the wreck of the emigrant ship Windsor, the passengers and crew of wliich vessel came to Southampton by the Medway : — "Total Wreck of the Windsor, 750 tons, of London, on her passage to Australia, ou the Hartwell Reef off Bonavista, Capo Verd Islands. — We have been favoured with the following particulars of the wreck from one of the passengers of the Windsor. — It appears the Windsor left Gravesend on the 6th November with a valuable general cargo and 30 passengers (several of whom were women), and a crew of about 30 men. She had a very fine run out of the Channel, and arrived off Bonavista, Cape Verd Islands, early on the morning of December 1. Land was sighted at the dawn of day, and shortly afterwards breakers were reported a-head. Almost immediately afterwards, the ship struck on the reef of rocks, under full sail, with studding sails set. The passengers, who were all asleep, were thrown out of their berths by the shock, and immediately hurried on deck, hastily throwing on any clothes that came nearest to hand. The boats were then got out as quickly as possible, and most providentially without any accident to any of them, and the ladies and passengers safely placed in them, though not without great difficulty and danger, owing to the heavy lurches and working of the ship on the rocks. A native boat that was at hand fortunately i came to their assistance, and piloted them through the reef to the shore, a distance of about four miles. Unfortunately, on the return of the boats to the wreck, I one of them was upset, and a boatswain and a sailor j drowned in the breakers, which ran very high, and I rendered an approach to the vessel a matter of great difficulty and danger. Fortunately, all hands were 1 got off, and the ship broke up almost immediately afterwards. The valuable cargo, being washed on shore, was carried off by the inhabitants. The passengers and crew, after remaining in some huts near the wreck for two days, walked to Port Jackson, a distance of about 20 miles, and were then forwarded (with the exception of the captain and one of the passengers) by a Portuguese war schooner to St. Vincent's, where every assistance was rendered to "them by the British Consul." — Times.
