The p.s. Geelong, from Dunedin, arrived in port at midnight on Tuesday, and, after landing cargo and receiving same, started for the North at 11 a.m. yesterday. We are indebted to Captain Tumbull for Dunedin papers to the 4th inst. The " Lyttelton Times," of 27th June, reports another fatal boat accident. On Saturday afternoon, Captain Dauvers, Mr Parry (second mate), Mr Giant (Customs), and Mr Flockton, left the Countess of Seafield at about 5 o'clock, for a sail in one of the ship's boats, shaping a course towards Church Bay. After being out for about one hour, they discovered that the light breeze, coming in occasional puffs from the N.W\, was increasing, and that night was rapidly closing in. It was about &ix o'clock when they fetched near the barque, when a strong puff caught the sheet and turned the boat completely over, throwing the passengers into the water on the lee side. All were able to swim, and succeeded in reaching the boat and tried to right her, but failed to do so, although she turned over once or twice. It was ebb tide, and the wind being N.W., the boat drifted down the harbor with the people holding on to the keel. When opposite to the baique Camille, Mr Grant left his companions, with the intention of swimming to the vessel to get assistance. He appears to have got near enough to attiact the attention of a dog on boaid, the barking of which caused an alaim, and Mr Grant was discovered all but exhausted. He was got on board as quickly as possible, but in a diowniug state. A boat was put off to lescue the others, and the crew succeeded in saving the Captain and Mr liockton. Mr P<irry, the second officer, was not to be found — he had sunk. Capt. Danvera states that just before the boat reached them, a sea struck then boat, and they got adrift, but himself and Mr JFloekton succeeded in regaining their hold ; but on .looking round, they missed Mr Parry. Every exertion was made to reach the Caiuille, where the survivors received every attention their exhausted condition required from Captain Eedy, his officers, and crew. Mr Pany was a deserving ofheer, and the last of the original crew remaining on board the barque, shipped by Capt. Danveis before leaving London. The " Southern Cross " says : — " There is reason to apprehend that an accident has happened to the barque Novelty which hus detained her on her voyage from Auckland to Sydney. She wa3 not telegraphed as having reached Sydney when the Alfied Roy, which arrived here yesterday, left Melbourne ; and she would be then twenty-five day out, the average passage being ten days. The following are the names of the passengers who left by the Novelty : — Miss Austin, Miss Carter, Messrs Warren, J. Joss, F. Hill, J. Stephenson, W. Haudel, B. Brodbart, J. Wright, H. Ingham, T. Kennedy, J. Williams, F. Fring, I". J. Browning, G. Robb, H. Thomson, W. Wilson, L. Arbord, J. M'Lean, R. P. Perran, and three soldiers." The barque \V itch of the Tees, arrived at Port Chalmers, on 29th June. She has on board 400 tons coal, for Messrs Dalgecy, Kattray and Co. Having left Newcastle on the lbth, had light winds to the Sn-ires, where she was becalmed for two days. — Times.
