The Argyle, for Panama, is al«o ready, and will be followed by the Hudson, for the tame port. The Colonist, Acquitnet, and Albattoss, are nearly full ships. The Counteis of Yarborough, Sarah Abigail, Cameo, Emily, J. Merithew, Lwa.-k, Ralph Bernnl, Cachalot. Cadet (Captain Malcolm), Cadet (Captain M'Farlane), are about to load.— 'lb. Nov.W. The Tasmania left this port for London on the 11th ultimo, and has returned, having experienced very heavy weather off the South Cape of New Zealand, in which the ship strained and laboured very much during the gale, and ai (he made a great qmutity of water, Captain Tucker comidered it prudent to bear up for Sydney. A survey will be held on the ship to day.— Sydney Herald, Nov. 1 . Yeiterday, the American flag was hoisted half-mast high, at the office of the U. S Consul, and also on the American ships in harbour, This was a mark of re« spect to the memory of the late President— General Taylor. We were pleased to observe that the British ships adopted the same method of showing respect to | the memory of tlie deceased General.— lbid. H.M.S. Havannah sailed from Numea (in New Catdonia) on the 30th ultimo. On her passage down she |made an unsuccessful search for j Middleton's Island, which apparen ly does not exist between the meridians of 159 and 161 east, and the parallels 28 and 28-30 south. Since leaving Sydney in July the has visited Auckland and Wangaroa, New Zealand, He Islands ->f Aneitum, Tana, Eromango, Vata, and Mali* colo, ~ ( ihe New Hebrides; Vanikolo or La Perouse's Island, San Cristoval and Malata, of the Solomou's, and the principal pons of New Caledonia,— lb. The Tasinmiia.— The repairs of this vessel will detain her nearly two months, part of her cargo will be discharged, and her mail will be transferred to the Saltetta, expected to sail about the 20 instant.— lb. Nov 9. The Agricola. — Although this vessel made a good passage of 103 days fiom Fal mouth, we are unable to give a correct list of the English shipping, not hating receired auy newpaperi later than the Jslh July. The Blackwall was to sail on 15th August. The Alpha and Ganges, both for Sydney, had sailed ; and the Waterloo wa» to sail immedia'ely after the Agricoh. The Jane Catherine, heuce arrived prior to the 26th July.— Herald, Nov. 7. Loss of the Babque Jknny Lind. — By the arrival of the Eagle, steamer, from Moreton Bay, we regret to learn that ihe barque Jenny Lind, Captain Taylor, from Port Phillip, bound to Singapore, was totally lost oa Cairn's Reef, about 400 miles to the northward of Moieton Bay, on the 21 it Sept. last, but fortunately no lives were lost. The crew succeeded in building a boat out of the wreck, and with the cutter, they made the passage to the Bii&bane River (Morton Bay) in ten days, during which they underwent the greatest privations, having only a small supply of damaged pork and wet bread. Capt. Allen, of the Eagle, met the boats on hi* passage down the Brisbane River, on his return to Sydney, when he found them in the greatest state of exhaustion, and immedi" ately tnpplied them with all tho necessaries the ship could afford. There were three females in the boats, who throughout their hardships sustained themselves with the greatest fortitude. The boats were expected to reach Brisbane on the same evening that Captain Allen met them. — lb. Nov. 11. Ships lob London.— The Earl Grey is likely to proceed to sea this day, and the mail will close at (he Post Office at noon. She will be followed by the Salsette to soil mbout the 12th instant j the Duke of Richmond will bo the next. The fo lowing are also loading, but their dates of sailing cannot be fix<& at present with any degree of certainty :— Mary White, Seringapatam, Phoenician, Blenheim, William and Mary, General Hewitt, Commodore, Kate, and Tas* mania, under repairs — lb. Nov. 5. Several ships from London msy be shortly expected. The Ganges is making a very long passage : having sailed oft the 27th June, she hat been out one hundred and twenty.eight dayi. The Alpha sniled about the 20th July, and has been out about one hundred and ten days. The Waterloo was to sail on the Ist August, and has been out about a hundred days : we believe it was probable she would not touch at Port Phillip, and may therefore be hourly expected. Ihe Blackwall wai to sail about the 15th Augast, and may be considered due after this week. It was probable that two emigrant ships would be laid on for Sydney in August, and one of them might mako a quick passage and arrive in the course of a few days.— lb. Nov. 12. Lavnch. — Three o'clock on Thursday was the hour named for launching the new vessel built by Mr. J. Griffiths. At that time not leu than four thousand persons on foot, besides equestrians, and a great num ber in carriages, gigs, und other vehicles, thtonged the roads,|the biidge, the(ship«yard, and lined the oppolite banks of the river j spectators were even perche upon the top-gallant yards of vessels lying near the spot. But the fickle goddess was uupropitious. The river being narrow, it was necessary to place the ways in a very horizontal position ; and the consequence was, that when the shores were knocked away the vessel refused to move. A couple of warps were carried from the taffrail across',to the swamp, and another rope havii q been fastened to her bows, some scores of the nervous crowd " clapped on"— the ship moves— the bottle is dashed against her side, and she is christened by the owner's son the "Sydney Griffiths." The vesiel was only moved four or five feet, when, as though, ashamed to take the water in presence of such a multitude, she itopped, and though herculean efforts were made to force .her on, she absolutely refused to
proceed. It was soon ascertained that the attempt would be renewed on the following afternoon, aud (hs dense mass of humanity dispersed, certainly disappointed, but fully conscious that no blame ceuldbe attached to any one. As Ike veisel had settled down during the night it was not without much cHlliculty and immense labour that the blocks could be cut out from under her; and when this opperation had been accomplished the forward ends of the ways were raised, thus increasing the angle at which they were laid. About half-past three o'clock yesterday afternoon, a great number of pcrsom assembled over the bridge and on the swamp, but not nearly so many as were congregated on the previous ilay. Everything having been ai ranged a few minutes before high water the shores were started, and the yes* s 1, dressed out with colours from her trucks to her bulwarks, glided majestically tn'o the element destined for her future home. A loud shout announced the su^reis of the launch, and several gentlemen shook Mr. Griffiths heartly by the hand in congratulation. The Sydney Griffith? is a splendid vessel, and rtflects infinite credit on the builder ; to whatever part of the globe she floats she will loudly proclaim the skill of Tagmanian [artists, and the adaptition to shipbuilding purpose! of Tasmania!! timber. The Sydney Griffiths will load at Port Fairy for England, Captain Cowian, nowhere, will command her. The following are her dimensions j— Length of keel, 112 d^pth of hold 17 feet 6 inhces; breadth of beam 26 feet 2 inchei. Ton--nage, n. m., 36*8 ; burthen GOO.—Lawceston Examiner, October 26. Wreck of the Sir John Pirie.— A letter has arrived iv town, from Goose Island, the authenticity of which is incontrovertable ; the following is a copy :— " Goose Island, Oct. 10, 1850. S.r,— l beg to inform you, that a sealer, James Williams, arrived this afternoon, and reports having found a large portion of Ihe wreck of a vessel on the 3rd instant, upon the west side (towards the south end) of Hummock or Prime Seal Island, It consist deof cabin and sueep fitting, a basket, a part of a side hdder, two piecei of deck plank, a pine lower-mast broken at the head, which ha supposes to be a main-mast; a top-gallent-yard, broken in the slings, a boom which he says has evidently been used in the hold for a partition for cattle; a boat broken to pieces, also, the stern of a long-boat, Sir John Pirie, of Sydney, on it; aLoa bust figure head, painted white, which he has nith him ; I have leeu it, and know it to be the one belonging to that vessel.— Colo* nial Times.

Destitution on Shipboard. — The ship Sarah and EliZd, with 210 passengers on board, arrived at Monterey about six days since, after a passage of 105 days from Panama. A small number of the party who were better able to endure bodily fatigue, left the vessel on Friday last, and reached this city by land last evening. Their report of the condition o( things on the ship and of the people on board is terrible ; for more than 90 doyi the greatest degree of want and absolute destitution existed. They state lhat on the second day out from Panama they were placed on nn allowance of a pint or ha f a pint of water, which, with other necessaries, were gradually decreased in quaotity until they were reduced to a mere fraction.— A Ita California, Sep . 1 .
