On the passage of tbe ship Howrab across tbe Straits from Nelson to Wellington (say.* tbe. Post) one of tbe immigrants, a married woman, died from consumption, and was buried the next day, leaving two children and ber husband to mourn their loss. An apprentice, who has been in the Howrab for tbe last three years, also met witban accident by falling from a yard arm to tha deck, resulting in bis sustaining a compound fracture of the leg and other injuries. The barque Abeona left Allday Bay, New Zealand, for Adelaide, on the Utb ult., with h full cargo of oats, aud had got as far as within 100 miles of Kangaroo Island, when she was overtaken by disastrous weather, and had her bulwarks and deckhouses swept away. She was fore-reaching under tbe lower topsails, when a tossing sea, almost appalling in its height and volume,broke on board aud carried away bulwarks and. staucbions on both sides, from the forepart of the poop to the fore-rigging. The sea, by its resistless force, smashed in galley and deckhouse, carrying them clean way, and besides bursting in the main hatch, it also washed away one of the’ boats and stove in another. Several of the orew were in the deckhouse at the time the vessel was struck, and when the wall of water bad passed over,andshe had recoveredherself .those who were aloft fully expected to find their mates had been whirled away into the raging sea. Their escape from drowning was little less than miraculous. Considerable privation had to be endured by the loss of the galley, cooked provisions beine utterly unattainable, and in these straits Captain Mackie deemed it his most advisable course to make for Port Philip: The Abeoua is a clipper looking craft, Spey-built, and a staunch vessel in heavy weather, and but for this it is believed that she must have foundered.— Melbourne Telegraph.
