In 1838, in company with his wife and family, he set sail from Sydney in his schooner the Sarah, fro Melbourne, for the purpose of spending a holiday at the residence of John Batman (which stood about the Flinders street end of the present Railway Offices at Spencer street), but the schooner disappeared, and no trace of it was ever found. The cairn is of rough stonework, about 10 ft high, and tapering from 6ft to 2 ft.

A foretopsail-yard belonging to a schooner was picked up by a boat's crew belonging to Dr. Imlay, about three miles outside the heads of Twofold Bay, and from its appearance it is supposed to have been some time in the water; a binnacle was also seen a short distance off, but owing to the unfavourable state of the weather the parties did not proceed after it. The circumstance was mentioned to a party on board the Australasian Packet, then lying in Twofold Bay, who had previously been in the schooner, Sarah, and from the description given him, has not the least hesitation in saying it belonged to that unfortunate vessel.

THE SCHOONER SARAH. - Much anxiety is felt regarding the fate of this vessel. The Sarah sailed for Port Phillip on the 22nd of June, with several passengers, under the charge of Captain Winkworth, a gentleman of considerable nautical knowledge. By the last accounts from Port Phillip it has been ascertained that the schooner had never reached her destination. This circumstance naturally induced a belief that some misfortune had befallen her, which was much increased by the fact that the Captain of the Kate, on his return from Port Phillip, observed a large fire burning on the Long Beach, made, as he supposed, by the crew of some shipwrecked vessel to attract attention to their distress. The Kate was unable to ascertain the cause of the fire, or render any assistance, with wind blowing strong on the land at the time. On Tuesday an application was made to the Governor by Mr. Saul Lyons, the owner of the Sarah. for the assistance of the Government in sending out a vessel to search for the passengers and crew. His Excellency afterwards held a conversation in the subject with the Collector of the Customs, the result of which did not transpire. We sincerely hope the Government will not be backward on this occasion. The following are the names of the passengers and crew of the Sarah: - Passengers, Henry Howie Esq., Mrs. Howie, Masters Henry, John and William, and Misses Ann, Frances and Eleanor Howie; Miss E. Gibbons, governess; Miss Howard, daughter of D.A.C.G. Howard; two female servant. Crew: - Wm. Winkworth, master; James Graham, mate; Henry Coates, Thomas Jeffrey, Joseph Birch, Sydney Sinck, seamen; William Ballam, steward; and John Williams, cook. In all, twenty-six souls.
