MURDER OF THE CREW OF THE SCHOONER MARIAN RENNY, AT THE S. S. ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 January 1868

MURDER OF THE CREW OF THE SCHOONER MARIAN RENNY, AT THE S. S. ISLANDS. TIE schooner Chance, Captain M'Gregor, arrived in the harbour at a late hour last night; and by her we learn of the brutal murder of the crew, excepting one, of the schooner Marian Renny, of Sydney. The schooner was at the Solomon Islands when the natives attacked her, and after a despe rate struggle killed all on board; the only one saved happened to be away from the vessel at the time. One of the crew named Happy Jack is said to have killed eight of the natives before he surrendered. The na. tives then plundered the ship of 'everything they could take away. The Marian Renny is coming on to Sydney. in charge of a por tion of the Chance's crew.-Empire. From the same paper, of a later date, we take the following :-We learn from Cap tain M'Gregor, of the Chance, that the re volting tragedy above referred to was perpe trated on the 10th September, at.

THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH IN TASMANIA. From tVie Iolbarl Iown Mercury, January. S. AT sundown on Mondayevening the arrange? ments for the reception were far from com plete; men were employed in some cases throughout the night in perfecting them, and it was quite 12 o'clock before all was ready. By 9 o'clock in the morning the streets were crowded with people. The centre of attrac tion seemed to be the public buildings, and from thence to the wharf ; and many thou sandsof persons had assembled in those lo calities at an early hour. The stands erected by the Government, by Messrs Walch, and by private persons on the wharfs, were filled, but the others were far from c:-owded. It was about 11 o'clock when the populace really began to muster in force, and then the wharf stands were fairly rushed ; the piles of timber also became superior points of view, and every available point from which the landing and progress of the procession in its earlier stages could be witnessed were eagerly seized...

WRECK OF THE SHIP GENAI-AL GRANT. From the SoulAland New, Ja?uar, It,. ONx more sad story of disastrous ship wreck and loss of life at. the Auckland Islands has to be.placed on record. Early yesterday morning a telegram was re ceived announcing the arrival at the Bluff of the whaling .brig Amherst, Captain Gilroy, with ten persons on board (inclu. ding one female), the survivors of the crew and passengers of the ship General.Grant, which left Melbourne for London in May, 1866, with a valuable cargo of wool, hides, and gold.' The .narrative -told by the rescued people partakes of the nature of that fearful episode,, the loss of the Lon don, but with less of- battling with the elements. A noble ship, with a stout and able crew--by one of those strange com binations of circumstances that human skill is powerless to combat--drifted like a log on the 'iron-bouud shore of. the Aucklands, not to be ground to atoms against the almost endless wall of rock environing them, but to be embayed i...
