One of the boats dispatched to the wreck of the Jane Lockhart, schooner, has returned with the sails and a portion of the .running and standing gear. The vessel, it appears, did not strike on Bunker's Group, as reported by Cap- tain Machen, but upon what is known as Heron Island, about ninety miles to the northward of Bunker's Group. When the boat reached the
vessel sho was settled in a hollow in one of the reefs, the outer formation of the hollow acting as a breakwater against the seas. One side of the vessel was quite visible, and the new copper sheathing appeared uninj'ured. Captain Norris, who went down in charge of tho boat, unbent the sails, so that tho position of the vessel might as much as possible remain unaltered ; he left the yards and masts standing. It ¡3 anticipated that nearly tho whole of the cargo will be saved. What remains of the cargo will be removed, and the vessel rai-ed
and floated by air bags, repaired as far as pos- I sible, and brought into port. Messrs. Feez and i Macarce, the purchasers of the wreck and I cargo, have halved their respective interests to , each other. Messrs. C. L. Johnson and H. , Milford are, wo understand, interested in the ! share held by Mr. Feez; and the speculation in both wreck and cargo is looked on as a very fortunate ono for the purchasers.-Hock hampton Bulletin.
Two sailing races between a boat from the Balclutha and a boat from the Clarence, took place yestcrdoy. The course of the first race wu3 from tho A.S.N. Company's wharves round the red buoy, and the second a shorter distance. Tho boats were sailed by the respective skippers of each vessel. Tho unit race was taken by Captain Cottier^ but in the second Captain Hill clapped on a larger stretch of canvas, and brought his boat in at the front.-Ilid.
