TRI new ketch Hawthorn, belonging to Mr. John Philp, of Franklin-where she WOB built-arrived in port, yesterday morning. A description of thin vessel upon being, launched, appeared in a recent issue of, The Mercury. Since then the Hawthorn has been rigged, and fitted with every requisito for a vessel of her description. Her cabin is a trim and cozy apartment possessing a stateroom, and the fittings in it are of the real Huon pine, a very pretty wood wucn SUshed. We must not omit to state that the
awthorn is a very handsome model, and Mr. Joseph Mann, of Peppermint Bay, who drafted the vessel and supervised her building, is to be com- plimented on the success of this his first essay in the art of shipbuilding. The destination of the Haw- thorn will probably be the coastal trade of the other colonies, for which she is well adapted, being capable of carrying between 70 and 80 tons of cargo on a draught of 0 feet C inches. Mr. Philp has prepared the material for another new vessel to carry about 55 tons, which he intends to employ in his own trade.
ELSEWHEKE Messrs. Webster Corrio & Co., the local agents of the Tasmanian line of packets to London, notify the dates on which the vessels are to sail. As usual the barque Harriet McGregor will be the first ship of the season. She is rapidly filling up, and will take her departure on Thursday next. The next vessel belonging to this line to leave will be the barque Lufra ; and the proposed dato of sailing is the 1st of February. The barque Helen, or a new clipper ship, will follow the Lufra, leaving on or about the 1st of March. An advertisement addressed by the owners of this line to wool-growers, shippers, and importers, appears in another column.

The steamer will leave for this port, aSjgf completion of overhaul, on or about the 18th of '.January, 1870.

She will continue in the trade until the p.s. Monarch, which was slipped yes- terday, completes her periodical overhaul.
YKSTKKDAY morning tho finding of the court of inquiry into the loss of the barque Tien Tem was de JjYi;red. It appears in another column. The loss of the vessel was attributed to her being overloaded, and to not being properly found with good and sound suils. The conduct of the master and mate, and also the crew,was commended, and the certificates of the two former were returned. The court also expressed their high sense of the promptitude and energy exhibited by
^Captain Stanley of H.M.C.S. Victoria in going to tho 1 a%'i)tance of, and endeavouring to savo the vessel.
