Somo of tho immigrants complain that the supply of provisions waa unsatis- factory, but as tho official inspection of tho ship, stores, and passengers, will bo mado to-day, any complaints which the latter may have to mako will most probably be carefully investigated.

Tho vosscls :got on tho sands within a slioi t distance of each other -before daybroak, whilo tho wind was blowing strongly from tho south-west. On tho signals ut distress "being observed, tho Rumsgatu harbour steaming Aid 'lind lifeboat Bradford, und the North Deal, Kings Uown, mid Broiiilbtnirs lifeboats, belonging to the ?National Lifobout Institution, promptly procecdod to the sands, and tfl'uits woro mudo to got tho vessels ,off, but without success, on account ol'the vory heavy ,surf running all duy on tho Goodwin. On tho tide Hewing tho India bioko her back and sank, her crew of 16 mon being, howavor, saved by tho Humsgate lifeboat, which transferred six of thom to tho Kings down lifeboat. The other vossel is nlso likely to be-
come a total wreck. Her crow of 10 mon wore saved by tho North Deal lifeboat, togother with fivo Broad stairs mon, who carno out to tho wreck und unfor- tunately lost their boat alongside. Whilo the steamer »Aid waa toning out the Bradford lifeboat in tho morn- ing the paddle shaft of tho starboard wheel broke, ' and the ateamor had te rotura to tho harbour working
