in all eleven persons. Miss Barton is so much injured that doubts are entertained of her recovery. Mrs. Barton's sister is also seriously injured. A Lieutenant of Coast Guard, with his wife and daughter, aud Lieutenant Blackmore and two seamen, are very much hurt. The Rev. Mr. Cooper, the chaplain, had his clothes literally torn off. Many of the seamen and officers were driven half the length of the ship, but fortunately not much injured. It was truly melancholy to see the fragments of hats, bonnets, and dresses, lying scattered on the decks; in fact, as may be supposed, the ship presented an awful appearance.
Trade To Hong-kong.—As a great proof of the importance of our trade to China, and the extensive nature of our exports to that quarter, we would direct the attention of our readers to the fact that, on the evening of Tuesday, the 4th instant, three fine ships, namely, the John O'Gaunt, the Emperor, and John Dalton, all fully laden with British manufactured goods, sailed from this port for Hong-Kong. The aggregate value of their cargoes must amount to several hundred thousand pounds. The sailing of the two first-named ships has caused considerable interest amongst our merchants and shipowners. The John O'Gaunt, under the command of Captain Robertson, has been long famous for her quick and regular voyages to China and the east, so much so that Captain Robertson has been lately requested to furnish his charts of the Chinese seas for the inspection of the Admiralty. On the other hand, the Emperor is a remarkably fine new ship, of larger tonnage than her consort, and also under an able master, Lieutenant Keane, of the royal navy. Both are known to be well provided with picked crews, aud to be perfect in all their equipments; and it is said that considerable bets are depending on which shall first arrive at Hong-Kong.—Liverpool Paper.
On 13th of July, a distressing and fatal occurrence caused the death of Captains Drew and Jenkin Jones, two of the Elder Brethren of the Trinity House. These gentlemen, with others of the brotherhood, whose lives were providentially saved, had been engaged in surveying the lighthouses in the Bristol Channel; and when off Trevose Head they attempted to land in a boat on the Quies Rocks, but owing to the heavy surf they were unable to do so. On returning, the boat came in contact with the steam-yacht, and all in the boat (nine in number) were thrown into the water, by which the two unfortunate gentlemen were drowned.
Concussion Shells.—Extract from the official report of Captain Sir Thomas Hastings, to the Lords of the Admiralty, dated 30th June last. "I consider a shell fitted with Captain Norton's concussion fuze, to be more sure, as well as more ruinous in its effects, than when fitted with the common fuze. Captain Hastings has recommended that Captain Norton be called on to instruct the operatives in the Laboratory at Woolwich, under the supervision of the Directors, in the manner of preparing his fuzes, and that, one hundred and fifty shells fitted with them be prepared at once, for further trial; which Captain N. has promptly signified his willingness to do.
