? i, > Vice-Admiral Gobius, from London April

ipped anchor in our port early yesterday ' r vjg, after a passage of 221 days, protracted in

t» r- * lUcnce of heavy «eather experienced between1 V t"ape and S2 dcg. east longitude, and in which ' ii f rque sustained so much damage that the captain   deemed it advisible to bear up tor a port and   get repaired. He nccordingly made for Sourabaya,

on t-.s 13th July, and reached it on the 9th Aug. | Here the necessary repairs having been executed, a portion of the cargo was sold to defray the expenses,

and the vessel lcit for this port on 17th Oct, having I been detained 70 days. Inthe'atter end of June gales «eru, first lexpenenced, which lasted for eighteen na; s, and on the 12th July, she had her quarter, and a great portion of her bulwarks stove in, her mizen-mast sprung, and she became otherwise much damaged and leaky. The cargo sold at Sourabaya, consisted principally of merchandise. A carriage belonging to Mr. Walker was also dis- posed of. "When the barque loft London she was very deeply li'den, drawing about 19 feet water. This, in a great measure, accounts for her making 'such heavy weather. Her manifest will he found

in its proper place. We may, however, state thht it is incorrect, inasmuch as many of the things therein contained have been sold. .11 r caigo, which is a veryh<avy one, eonsists princip Hy of iron, lead beer, spirits, and coals. She bungs ab*>ut thirty five passengers, amongst «vhom are four sch'O maa'er«, intended for the Government and some farm labouiers for R. Q.   Kermode, Esq., of Mona Vale. A widow lady,     Mrs. Liddell, died of cholera at Surabaya, and an

infant died at sea.

STEAM TO SYDNEY*-The Launceston Steam Navigation Company have determined t > srnd a steamer to Sydney, and the Royal Shepherd will leave on her first trip on Wednesday, the 12th

THE NLW PASSENGER ACT.-We find from the

" English papers that the Act to amend the law re

Jating to the carriage of passengers by sea received the royal assent on the day of the prorogation. It contains 103 sections, and several schedules of forms io carry the same into execution. On the J st of October next, when the Act is to come into ' force, the Passengers Act of 1852 is to be repealed,

except as to^existing liabilities, and except as to an ' order in Council dated the 16th of October, 1852.

('.The Commissioners of Emigration are to carry out i .the'Acr. The law on the subject is defined, and | <. various regulations are to be adopted for the safety <i and accommodation of the passengers. The num-

ber of passengers to be csrried is to be fixed, means . taken,lor light and ventillation, and the diet pre , scribed. All passenger ships are to be surveyed

before clearing out. Single men are to be berthed in a separate compartment. The boats to be taken ore stated, and penalties are to be imposed for of- rendes against the new hw. Amongst the numer- ous clauses which have been framed with a view to

^""otect passengers, is one to the effect that, in case if wreck or damage, passengers are to be provided

' oiiil has \ery politely' handed our reporter the fol -lówing document, respecting new reels fallen iu with during his passage from Shanghai to this port : " On toe voyage from Shanghai toward* Sydney by

the Pacific, in.tho barque Dolphin, I had an oppor- j tuuity of correcting'the number and position of the ' first group of islands, lying south of those bound- ing those Straits of Van ¡Diemen. ' As many ship^ masters trading from China to Australia and Cali-J 'fprnin complain of the inborrceinoss of the charts'

in "Use, from the north end of the Loochoo Islands to those bounding the south side of Van Dicincn's Straits. I heg to give publicity to the true position of ihe immediate islands: they extend as far north as latitude 30 degrees north, and from longitude 129 degrees 36 minutes east to longitude 139 degrees 3 minutes east ¡ and that north-east of the northernmost island, in latitude 30 degrees 5 min- utes north; longitude 130 degrees 6 minutes east lies a dangerous reef of rock«, paitly underwater, and apparently sevon miles distant from the island of Saubon in latitude 30 degrees north, longitude 130 degrees 2 m ¡mues east The reef appealed to Tie two miles in extent, halfamileof which was covered with breakers to the north, and was named Stephens's reef by me, after the second mate, who first ¡,aw it. On closely looking into B, W. Laurie's charts of the coast of China, Japan Islands, and the Oriental Archipelago, erasures of the engraving ap- pear, probably caused by erroneous information conveyed to him while the charts were in the en- graver's hands.-James Turnbull, Master Barque Dolphin, Sydney Harbor, 17th November, 1835."
