The Star of the Sea is a new schooner recently built at Port Davey, for Captain John Carver, by Mr. Edward
Hennessy. She is built of picked Port Davey pine, her frame being also of the same material, and with no other
timber in her decking or otherwise, with the exception of her main keel and kelson, and is copper fastened throughout. Her length of keel is 59 feet ; length over- all, 67 feet ; beam, 16 feet ; and depth of hold, 6 feet under the beam. Her cabin is very nicely fitted up, the panels and other adornments being worked out of knotty pine, giving the whole a remarkably handsome appear- ance ; and it may be mentioned here that, as well us the ship carpentering, tho whole of tho joiners' work was performed by Mr. Hennessy. Tho schooner was rigged at Port Davey by the Messrs. Carver, the rigging, sails, &c., being supplied by Mr. Colvin, and it is intended, for the present at least, that the schooner shall be placed in the timber trade between Hobart Town and Port Davey.
The ship Caranjah, Captain George Cawse, from London, with navvies for the Main Line Railway and a large cargo of merchandise, signalled off Fluted Cape at noon on Thursday, anchored in the cove at noon yes- terday. Captain Cawse reports that ho left Gravesend on the 16th March, and the Downs on the following day, the pilot leaving the vessel off the Isle of Wight on the 18th. The ship had fresh N. and N.E. winds until reaching the equator, which was crossed on April 8th, in long. 23deg. W. Had then light baffling winds up to 10deg. S., when the vessel caught fresh S.E. trades, which carried her up to 23deg. S., and had then light and variable winds up to 27deg. S., and thence to the Cape fresh N. and N.E. to W. winds. Passed the meridian of the Cape on May 9th, and had then light easterly winds for six days, after which strong S. W. gales set in, the barometer falling to 28.60. A whirlwind passed within four yards of the weather side of the ship on 4th June, the vessel being then in lat. 43deg. S., long. 104 deg. E., raising a terrific sea, and causing, as may be supposed, great alarm amongst the passengers. Had then steady south westerly winds, which changed in a few days to winds from W. to N.W., which brought the vessel up to the South West Cape on 14 inst. Then had a succession of light easterly winds and foggy weather. Anchored off Fluted Cape on Thursday night, coming up and dropping anchor in the Cove at noon yesterday. She
has two cabin passengers, and the number of single navvies on board is 198, and 48 married navvies with their wives, 54 children, and two single women. There were three deaths of children on board and three births, the total number of steerage passengers thus being 350. The health of the passengers, we are in- formed by Dr. Crouch, has been excellent throughout the whole passage, no dangerous or contagious sickness having exhibited itself. Captain Cawse also reports that the steerage passengers had well conducted themselves during their trip. The vessel, which is of 900 tons register, is a Sunderland built vessel, and was constructed especially for the passenger trade between England and India, and the transport of troops to Bombay, hence she has spacious 'tween decks and saloon accommodation, together with all other sanitary arrangements. She is a fine looking ship, fitted with double topsail yards and sails, carries three lifeboats and two cutters, and her captain reports her to be a most noble and trustworthy sea boat, and a good sailer, averaging with a moderate wholesail breeze 11 knots an
hour. She is consigned to Messrs. MacFarlane and Co., and will land her steerage passengers to-day, when due arrangements have been made for their accommodation, none being permitted to land last night, and will then proceed to discharge her cargo. We understand also from some of the steerage passengers that it the intention of the whole of their number to present a souvenir and a memorial to Captain Cawse in acknowledgement of his care for their comfort and his kindness to them during the passage, and also referring to the good nature and the manly bearing of the ship's officers and the crew, with a testimonial con- veying their best thanks to Dr. Crouch for his kindness and attention during the run. The vessel comes along-

WRECK OF THE LEONIDAS.
By the uri ¡val of tho sehoonor Couru,' from New Caledonia, wo have received intelligence of the total low of tho buiquo 'Leonidu', .'st the Dalari
Pal», New Caledonia. Air. Henderson, late chief.''
officer of tho barque ia a passenger by the Ccara, and ho furnishes tho following particulars : -The Leonidas, Captain Fluke, was from Now ciiBtle'wilh a cargo of coal and, 100 sheep, bound to Noumea. ' On the 2nd instant whilo going through the Balari Pass, in charge of a pilot und a good lookout being kopt, she struck' on a' Bunkon reef about 9 a.m., but she was backed off again, when it was found that the vessel wns leaking very badly. Every endeavour was at once mado to keep her free and at the sumo time work her in to harbour by means of tho sails, na the rudder had been knocked away. She rtly after, Mr .Honderson states that the Froneh .war achoouor Gazelle carno within hail, but having lommunicated with the pilot, kept away to sea with- out offering any assistance. Owing to tho losa of the rudder and having no means lo tow the barque, she was quite unmnnugcablo, mid a second timo got on tho reef. At 4 p.m. she had 12 feet of water in tho
hr.ld, tho sea washing across tho main deck ; under ! these circumstances, and with no power to savo tho vessel, Captain Flake determined to abandon her, and in a few minuteB she settled down bead first, leaving tho masts above water, but the next day she had ! entirely disappeared. Mr. Hendorson is of opinion I that had the Gazelle sent her boats to tow, the bat quo i might have bien beached in such shallow water that
the live stock and a large portion of the gear would have been saved. The Leonidas is insured in the Australasian for £1200, of which £400 is reinsured in the Pacido and new Zealand offices. She was owned 'by Messrs. Broomfield mid Whitakor, of this city. Tho cargo vfna also insured in tbo Austrulasiau for £290.-S. M. Mfialil, 13th inst.
