The ship Dorothy, from London to Bom- bay, sprung a leak on her voyage and went down, the crew and passengers having taken to the boats. They sailed 838 miles to the island of Trinidad, but not being able to land for the surf, they were obliged again to set sail for Babia, when they were picked up by an American vessel after being 20 days at sea in open boats with the smallest possible sub-

sistenec, and running 1311 miles from the spot

where the vessel went down.

Wool.-The sale of Wednesday 11th Sept. amounted to nearly 1,500 bales, of which 967 were Australian, 471 Van Diemen's Land, 28 German, and 12 bales of Cape wool. The sale   was most fully attended by numerous buyers. In some descriptions of colonial wools ad-

vanced prices were given, but a portion of the

low wools were greasy, and fetched lower prices. As far as the sales have proceeded,   the finest qualities of Australian offered have realized from 3s. to 3s. 3d. per lb., second, sorts from 2s. to 2s. 11d. per Ib. and the in- ferior wools from 1s. 2d. to 1s. 10d. per lb. The Van Diemen's Land wools already sold have fetched, for the best offered, 2s. to 2s.   5d. per lb., and other fleeces from 1s. to 1s. 11d. per lb., according to quality. The sale which took place on Tuesday, under the di- rection of Mr. Marsh, was also fully attended,

and prices were fully maintained. There were offered 1,100 bales, all of which were sold. Atlas.            

The sale of woollens in the cloth-halls dur- ing the present week has been very limited, the buyers being few. The same observation applies to the sales in the mechants' ware- houses. Goods, although not so high in price, as the raw material would warrant, to ensure a moderate profit to the manufacturers, are, nevertheless, dear; this is the principal cause   of sales being contracted. -Leeds Intelli- gencer, Sept. 7.

We copy the following prices of the London price current of the 2nd September. viz.-Wool   -blanket wool 13d to 15d per lb, flannel do   17d to 22d per do, combing do 18d to 21d per

do, trade dull. Mimosa bark £7 to £8 10s per

ton.
