I The Southern Cross is an old identity in the Australian trade. She was con structed of wood at the yard of Forrest and Company, at Wyvenhoe, in 1801, as a steam yacht, and was converted a few years later to barquentine rig. In 1018 she was purchased by W. Angliss and Company from the Tasma nian owners with the dbject of using her in the export of tallow and hides from Australia to Great Britain, but owing to the Government refusing to release the vessel for the oversea trade, she remained in Australian waters. Captain Makepeace, the father of the boatswain on the missing vessel, is at present in command of the schooner Rachel Cohen. Though from the evidence at hand the fate of the Southern Cross appears cer tain, it is oped that the crew is safe. The vessel was equipped with two lifeboats and the standard number of belts, and was well provisioned.
