TO OUR FRIENDS AND CORRF.SPONDENTS.

We are much obliged to the Harliour-master at Madras for his attention, and we would request the Rime attention from other harbour-masters of our colonies, that they .forward to us us soon as possible, all Hydrographical notices passing under their cognizance as they may occur,—the establishment of this Journal having proved itself a receptacle for their reference, at once economical, secure, and immediate.

We have inserted the letter from Liverpool, and shall be happy to hear from the writer whenever he pleases.

It was our intention to have inserted the memorial presented to the Lord Mayor and Corporation of I.on!on, in f.ivour of the widows left by theoffieers and crew of the Fairy, but our limits have prevented it. In our next it will appear, with the list of donors and their donations to Mrs. Hewett's fund. In the mean time the latter will speedily appear in the columns of the Tinu-x.

Lieut. Williamson is thanked. His manuscript is returned.

Bank In Tub River La Plata.

H.M.S. Curacoa, Monte Video, Jan. Wth, 1840. Sir,—On the 13th of last December the United States frigate, Potamac, left this place to complete with fresh water from the river. The wind was about E.S.H. at the time, and fine weather, and while steering N.W.b.N., by compass, believing themselves to be about five miles from the Ravines of St. Gregory and St. Lucia, the leadsman having at the previous minute got a cast in four fathoms, the ship ran aground in seventeen feet water, drawing at that time twenty feet six inches.

She was cleared of everything excepting her ballast and lower masts, and after remaining fast until the 21th of December, by great exertions she was hove off S.b.W., their efforts to heave her off stern foremost having proved ineffectual, and her tendency being to clear away the sand and mud forwards, where she was less deeply immersed than aft; when she floated she drew seventeen feet six inches.

The wind was south-east when she got off, fine weather, with a remarkable high river.

During the eleven days they were aground the least water they had alongside was twelve feet, the most (the day she hove off) eighteen feet. The surface of the shoal consisted of a light coloured quick-sand, but about three feet was mud and shells.

As no notice is taken of this shoal in the chart of that part of the River Plata, supplied for the guidance of her Majesty's ships; and as it lays in the way of ships proceeding up the north side of the river to Point de Santa Maria, to water, I have thought it my duty to furnish you with this information of its existence, and send also a chart showing the shoal, &c.

When the Patomac was aground, the true bearings of Santa Maria, and the Ravine of St. Gregory and St. Lucia, were N7W. and N.E.

On the Admiralty chart the least depth of water marked on the shoal is three fathoms, and that close to Santa Maria, four fathoms being the average depth.

I have the honour to be, sir,
Your most obedient humble servant,

Jenkin Jones, Captain.

Captain Beaufort, R.N., F.R.S.,

Hydrographer of the Navy, London.

Madras Roads.

The roadstead of Madras is tolerably well known to our navigators, but time produces changes there as elsewhere, and there is room for a few remarks even on that much frequented anchorage. A short time ago a survey of these roads was made by Mr. Mc Kennie, then actingmaster-attendant, principally with the view of shewing the position and state of progress of a stone breakwater, for facilitating the landing. What is the actual condition of it at present we are not aware, but considering the well-known dangerous nature of the roads in which, year after year vessels are placed in the greatest jeopardy, particularly
