    SUPPOSED ARRIVAL OF THE CORNISH MACKAREL BOAT.— The Highland Lassie saw off Portland an open lugger-rigged boat laying-to in a heavy gale. She appeared to be a boat from 14 to 16 tons and had at least 10 men on board. There were three large figures painted on each bow, but they could not be made out from the Highland Lassie. The crew who had entered upon an ocean voyage in a craft so small were evidently not wanting in experience, as they had a contrivance to keep her head to wind and prevent the seas from sweeping over her.

    We have at present lying alongside the Market Wharf, a great curiosity in Marine Architecture; the wonderful fishing lugger 'Mystery' of 10 tons, which made such a miracoulas safe trip from Plymouth to Melbourne, with we believe, only three hands on board, about two or three years ago. The little craft is very unpretending in outward appearance, and is only to be recognised from other small craft at the Market Wharf by the difference of build. She is very strongly built and draws about eight feet of water when laden. The present owner of the 'Mystery', Mr. Carr, who purchased her from the adventurous men who trusted their lives in her over 16,000 miles of the Ocean, he's employed her for a considerable time most successfully in the fishing trade in Bass's Straits, for the supply of the Melbourne market. The Mystery left Melbourne about three weeks back,— landed a quantity of stores at Kings Island caugh, and took in a cargo of almost five hundred cray fish at New Year's Island; — sailed thence on Tuesday and arrived at the Wharf here on Thursday night. The cray fish by the Mystery are the largest and best we have ever seen here.

    PILOT CUTTER MYSTERY.
    The pilot cutter Mystery was wrecked in Keppel Bay on March 19, 1869, while stationed at the Pilot Station. While attempting to get under weigh for the purpose of coming up the river to Rockhampton, the strong wind blew her on to the N.E. point of the reef, which forms a portion of the boat shelter at the station. Attempts were made to salvage the wreck, but the vessel broke up and pieces drifted out to sea. (M.B. 23/3/09.)
