SHIPWRECK.—On Tuesday, the 28th March, ar- rived here the schooner Samuel, from New Zealand, with 500 skins and 10 tons of flax , and on the day fol- lowing the Prince of Denmark, with 25 tons of flax, which at the rate of from £30 to £35 a ton will form a clear Colonial export of £1,200. drawn from the indus- try of the natives of that Island. These vessels bring the distressing account of the loss of the Industry, a Colonial-built vessel, which was wrecked in Easy Har- bour, in a dreadful gale of wind, on the 28th February last. Ten men and six native women were drowned. W. Wiseman, the master, also met a watery grave. Two men escaped, and are expected in the next ship. We refrain from stating the distressing particulars now in circulation till the arrival the next ship. Wiseman was a remarkably active, good-looking young man, son of Mr. Wiseman, of the Hawkesbury, and most respectably connected both in the Mother Country and the Colony. He has left a very young widow, daughter of Mr. John Grono, principal owner of the Industry, and one child to lament his loss. He arrived in the Colony a youth, many years ago, and has been for a long period connected with our Colonial ship- ping. He had been some time at New Zealand in pro- secution of the objects of his voyage, where he was well known, and had been frequently engaged in the trade to that Island, South Shetland, South America, and other places in the South Seas. The vessel has become a complete wreck. The melancholy tidings were communicated to his numerous relatives, in the interior on Friday week.
