Very little hope was entertained of being able to save the vessel, which lies embedded in the sand, and is filled with water. The probability is, that a great part, if not the whole, of the cargo will be saved. The carpenter of the Mary was drowned in endeavouring to go off to the vessel in a boat after she went ashore, but beyond this, no loss of life was occasioned by the accident.-Launceston Advertiser, October 8.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 October 1840

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-Your paper of the 9lh instant contains remarks respecting the Corn Market and the Commissariat. ' May I be allowed to make an observation or two 7 It is stated that" the Commissary now rules the Market, instead of being ruled by it." The Commissary is a buyer; if he rules the market, it is a condition of affairs not likely to be satisfactory to the seller. If the seller rules the market, it is a condition of afTairs not likely to be satisfactory to the buyer. But buyer and seller ought each of them to be ruled by the mm kel, aud the market ought to be ruled by supply and demand. The praise bestowed for liberality may be deserved or uot; that is matter of opinion ; but if the Commissary rules the market, it is a fact, aud not a satisfactory one. The remarks suggest that this " rule" operates as a check against all combination amongst " the millers ;" I should sooner deduce a contrary opinion, viz., a combination amongst millers to participate in the...
