The Laura, from San Francisco, touched nt Norfolk Island, on the 27th instant, for supplies. Ou board of this ship there aie 38 passengers, all originally ftorn Sydney, they are heartily disgusted with the El Dorado, and many of thfir friends would have returned, but the means prevented them. — Sydney Ileiald, Nov. 18. The Lucy Ann, colonial whaler, left Sydney on the 19th June, 1849. She has been very unlucky during her vojage, bavin? only succeeded in taking 100 barrels of sperm oil ; and among the islands she got tin cc tons cocoa-nut oil, and one cask tortoishell. The annexed are extracts from her log : — March 10, 1850 — Latitude 00.39 north, longitude 165-21- east, spoke the Barely, from Nantucket, twen'y-oight months out, with 5)00 bjrreh sperm oil, May 23.— While reciuiting at Strong's Island, — a cask of water fell down the main-hateh-wny, striking in its fall Mr. Djvis, second oilicer of the vesiel ( fracturing his skull in threß different places. The unfortunate man survived only a few hours ; his remains were interred on the following day~on the island. April 11. — Distant from New Zealand south-east twenty miles, spoke the schooner Secret, Capt. Jamison, who reported that on the Ist August the vessel was anchored in Ruebeanina Bay, (an island of the New Georgian group), four of his crew joined the na'ives, and succeeded in faking possession of the schooner, which they kept for upwaids of half an hour. The captain and the mate were in the cabin, and by firing through the skylight, killed the King of the natives ; and by keeping up a regular fiie, caused the mutineers and natives to jump overboard and swim ashore. Captain Jamison, with his mate, now gained the deck, where they found iwo of their crew killed and one severely wounded, also a fmtlilul dog, the property of the Captain ; to have remained longer in the Bay would have been sudden death, disabled as they were, the anchor was slipped, and the vessel stood out to sea ; on the following day, the canoes ol the natives gave chase to her, (she still being in sight of land), but they were prevented from boarding through the steady firing from the schooner ; the nutn« ber of natives killed and wounded could not be asceitained. It was the intention of Captain Jamison to put into the first port he could make, to get hands, and then cruise among the South Sea Islands. Aug. ust 11. Spoke the Edward, schooner, Captain Truscott, five weeks out from Sydney, with six cvrt. tortoiseshell ; and on the 20th, spoke the Urisk, one of the Auckland Island Company's vessels, out eight months, with 30 barrels sperm oil.— lb, Piracy.— From St. Thomas we are informed of a desperate act of piracy committed in the West Indies. The American schooner J. B. Lindaey, left port of Spain, Trinidad, on or about ihe Ist February. While yet in sight of that place, at night, the mate and a passenger were murdered and thrown overboard by the crew. The capuin was seveiely wounded but con«* trived to secure the cabin doors against' the muide ers, and for some days kept them at bay. After ransack* ing the vessel for money, the miscreants took to the schooner's boat, and with an axe alternated to scuttle the vessel, but their design was defeated by the cook, who cut the boat's painter and 6et them adrift. The captain then managed to crawl on deck, and by threatening to fire on the boat, prevented the nourdeieisfrom returning on board. Ihe boat then made for the Spanish Main, and the captain contrived to reach St. Thomas's in the schooner, where he was taken care of by the American Consul, who has circulated handbills throughout the West Indies, offering a reward of 200 dollars for the capture of the murderers. — Sydney Herald, Nov. 13.
