SHIPWRECK.-On the 23rd of July last, tho Breeze, of Hobart Town, a small vessel of about 30 tons, wai wreoked at Upolu, having on board P. Imlay, Esq., of Twofold Bay, N. S. W., by whom she was chartered, and Mr. Williamson, merchant, from Huuhino, as passenger. She called hero on her way to New Zealand from Tahiti, and had loft Apia barbour on the evening of the 22nd, intending to call next morning at a village to the leeward for some oil, but was drifted in the night by tho current, and about 3 o'clock in the morning struck on the reef off Sa leimoa, a placo about eight miles to the west of Apia harbour, where the reef stretches out consi- derably from the land. About sunrise, the mis- sionaries stationed at that place saw her fast on tho reef, with her bow on, and part of her sails set. Alarmed for the safety of those on board, they immediately hastened off their boats to their assistance. Happily no lives were greatly en- dangered, as the weather was favourable and tho vessel had struck when the tide was nearly at the full, which curried her high up on the reef. With the prompt assistance of the natives, connected with tho families of the missionaries and the mis- sion seminary, the cargo was saved. But for their prompt and friendly aid, there is reason to believe that the vessel would have been violently plundered and taken.-Samoan Reporter.
