  • 8 Feb 1907, A PIONEER OF "THE LANE." DEATH OF MR. ROBERT STROUD.
    The death of Mr. Robert Stroud, which took place yesterday afternoon at his residence, in Camberwell, removes a familiar figure from softgoods circles in "the Lane" and the mercantile community. As stated in "The Argus" of Tuesday, he suffered from a complication of troubles; but although his condition caused grave anxiety to his immediate friends, they did not anticipate that the end was so near. The news of his death sped with painful surprise among his business associates, who held him in the highest esteem as an honourable, upright man, and many of the wharehouses flew their flags at half-mast as a tribute to his memory.
    Mr. Stroud, who had attained his 70th year, was born in Devonshire. He served his apprenticeship in the London warehouse of Messrs. I. and R. Morley, of Nottingham, and after acquiring further experience in the trade, came to Melbourne, to enter the employment of Messrs. Banks Brothers, Bell and Co., arriving at Hobson's Bay on Christmas Eve, 1861, by the SS Great Britain. His career in Melbourne was one of steady progress, and the position he ultimately gained as head of the firm of Banks and Co. was due to his shrewd common sense and business capacity, undoubted pro bity in all his transactions, and a geniality of manner which gathered around him a lot of friends. About 18 months ago Mr Stroud left on a holiday visit to England, and before doing so admitted into partnership Mr. Joseph Bell, a nephew of the late Mr. William Moore Bell, a pioneer of "The Lane" and one of the founders of the firm of Messrs Banks Brothers, Henderson and Bell, of Flinders-court, off Flinders lane, in the year 1854.
    One of the last visitors at Mr. Stroud's bedside was Mr. Henry Butler, who left for London on Tuesday by the RMS. Mongolia. Mr. Butler arrived at Melbourne in the Money Wigram sailing ship True Briton, on Christmas Day, 1861. and pro ceeding to Tankard's Temperance Hotel, Lonsdale street, met Mr. Stroud, and the friendship they then formed was maintained through all the intervening years.
    Mrs. Stroud, who is in frail health, has surived her husband. There is no family.
    The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon, at half-past 3 o'clock, at the Boroondara Cemetery.8
  • 12 Apr 1907, LATE MR. ROBERT STROUD. Estate valued at £90,000.
    The will of the late Mr Robert Stroud will be lodged for probate in the course of a few days. The value of the estate is about £90,000, and the executors are Messrs. Joseph Bell and Richard Glennon. The testator has made provision for a life interest in £25,000 to his widow, with the use of his late residence and furniture at Hawthorn. He has bequeathed the some of £29,000 to relatives, and further directed that, on the death of Mrs Stroud, the sum reserved for her use be divided amongst them. A sun of £175 is left for distribution among his domestic servants. He directs that a special bequest of £1,250 be given to the Eye and Ear Hospital, to endow a bed in that institution, to be called the "Robert Stroud Bed." He has provided £700 as specific legacies to certain employees of Hanks and Co., and an additional sum of £5,000 for distribution among the firm's employees, both in Melbourne and London —the distribution to be made at the dis creation of Mr Joseph Bell.
    The residue of the estate is directed to be divided (also at the discretion of Mr. Bell) among the following public charitable institutions: — Alfred Hospital, Austin Hospital, Melbourne Benevolent Asylum, Carl ton Refuge, Children's Hospital, Homoeopathic Hospital, Immigrants' Home, Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne Orphan Asylum, Old Colonists' Homes, Queen Victoria Hospital for Women, St Vincent's Hospital, St John's Ambulance, Blind Asylum, Deaf and Dumb Institution, Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, and the Sanitorium for Consumptives. The testator has provided that the distribution of the estate shall be completed within ten years. The trustees of the estate have decided to continue the business of Banks and Company, both at Melbourne and London, under the terms of the will.9

  • 12 Nov 1891, THE LATE JUDGE COPE.
    The very wide circle of friends of Mr Thomas Spencer Cope, who was for over 30 years judge of county courts, courts of mines, and chairman of general sessions in this colony, will regret to hear that he expired at his residence, Park street west, Brunswick, yesterday afternoon. He had not been in good health for some years, and in April, 1888, although he was then as capable mentally of performing his judicial functions as ever he was previously, be felt that physical infirmity was growing upon him, and that it was advisable that he should retire from the bench, and he accordingly did so. Almost immediately after resigning he left on a voyage to the home country in the hope of improving his health, and went there by way of Cape Horn.
    He had a cold when the vessel started from here and it was not unproved in the low latitudes through which the vessel had to proceed, but affected him for nearly the whole voyage. He returned improved in health but gradually weakness again overtook him though not to such an extent as to prevent him moving about amongst his friends in Melbourne and elsewhere, and he was never obliged to take to his bed until the day before he died. It is believed that he caught a cold at the Flemington races which he attended on Derby Day, but it was not so serious so to prevent his going to the races on Cup Day. On that day, however, he felt too ill to stay on the course, and had to leave for home before the Cup was run for.
    On Tuesday last the ailment developed into acute bronchitis, and it was found to be impossible to prevent him sinking under it, and he expired yesterday afternoon.
    Judge Cope was the son of Mr Thomas Cope, of West End, Hampstead, London and was born on the 19th April, 1821. After being at a private school he continued his education with his uncle the Rev Richard Cope, LL.D., and it was finished at University College, London, where he took the degree of LL.B. He then became a student of the Middle Temple and a pupil of Mr Thomas Chitty, the eminent pleader. He was called to the bar on the 22nd November, 1845, and practised at Westminster, and was for some time reporter for the Law Times in the Court of Exchequer, and at Nisi Prius for The Times and Daily News.
    In 1851 he emigrated to Port Natal in South Africa, and he was attracted from there to Victoria by the gold discoveries. He arrived here in April, 1853 and entered on the practice of his profession. In 1856 he was appointed deputy judge and chairman of general sessions for the Ballarat district in place of the late Mr Wrixon, and in 1858 was permanently appointed as judge of the Court of Mines and of the County Court and chairman of general sessions for the Beechworth district where be remained for 10 years. He held courts also at Buckland, Bright, Morse's Creek, Yackandandah, Wood's Point, and many other places the travelling to most of the outside townships and mining centres being in those days most difficult and in many parts dangerous. An anecdote which be related to his friends was that on one occasion he was obliged,in consequence of the country being flooded, to crawl along for a considerable distance on the top of a three rail fence in order to get to his court in time. In 1887 he was made Senior County Court judge and chairman of
    General Sessions in Melbourne, and he retained that position until he retired, as stated, in 1888. While acting as judge in Melbourne he possessed in the fullest extent the confidence and respect of all the professional gentlemen and oflicers engaged in court work. He was a judge ot the silent order, and very seldom indeed made any observations while a case was proceeding of a nature to lead those engaged in it to gather what his views upon it were. If possible he would avoid deciding a case on law technicalities, and he never concealed his desire to determine all matters which came before him upon the merits alone if it were possible to do so. With the bar he was always on good terms. In politics he was an advanced liberal, and when he was attending the Ballarat Circuit Court he expressed great sympathy with the Ballarat rioters and was one of the counsel who defended them on the charge of high treason. He was asked by a deputation at Ballarat to represent their district in the first Parliament after the new Constitution Act was passed but his increasing practice at the bar compelled him to decline the honour.
    In private life Judge Cope was an ardent admirer of all kinds of athletic sports and was especially fond of yachting and boat racing He was a most excellent musician, and could play well on almost any musical instrument. He took a very active part in promoting or supporting societies intended for social amusement, and when he was at the Ovens he taught a large number of lads, the sons of local residents, the fife and drum.
    At the Ovens and Murray Exhibition he had a band of them, consisting of 30 performers, and he marshalled them in procession to the exhibition and led them in the music they played there. He was one of the earliest residents of Emerald Hill (now South Melbourne), and took an active part in the separation of that district from the city of Melbourne. Amongst his friends he was a most entertaining conversationalist. He has left a widow and one son and two daughters to mourn their loss. One of the daughters is married to Mr W B Lochore, tea merchant, of Melbourne. The remains of the deceased gentleman will be interred in the Melbourne General Cemetery tomorrow morning.10

Australian Dictionary of Biography

Thomas Spencer Cope (1821-1891), judge, was born on 19 April 1821 in London, son of Thomas Cope of Hampstead and his wife Julia, née Parkin. After attending a private school he was educated at Launceston, Cornwall, by his uncle, Rev. Richard Cope, LL.D., a Dissenting minister, and at the University of London (LL.B., 1841). He entered the Middle Temple in April 1842, studied under Thomas Chitty and was called to the Bar in 1845. While practising in the courts at Westminster he reported for the Law Times, The Times and the Daily News. In 1851 he emigrated to Natal but, on hearing of the gold discoveries in Victoria, went to Melbourne and after his arrival in April 1852 was admitted to the local Bar.
Cope soon built a flourishing side-practice at Ballarat where he strongly sympathized with the miners against the administration. In January 1855 he took the lead in arranging the defence of the Eureka prisoners without legal fees. He was soon requested to stand for one of the Ballarat seats in the new parliament, but refused. In 1858, after serving as deputy-judge in the Ballarat district, he was appointed judge of the Court of Mines and of the County Court and chairman of General Sessions at Beechworth. He made frequent and difficult journeys to other townships and mining centres, including Buckland, Morse's Creek (Wandiligong), Yackandandah, Bright and Woods Point. Because of floods he once had to crawl along the top rails of a fence to reach the court-house. He was a highly respected community leader in the district.
In 1868 he was transferred to Melbourne where he remained for the rest of his life. From August 1885 to June 1886 he was temporarily on the Supreme Court bench. He had a reputation as a slightly eccentric judge who was more inclined to decide on grounds of humanity than legal technicality. He was a penal reformer, an advanced Liberal who in politics supported state ownership of land, and a member of the Church of England. Cope was a leading member of the Yorick Club with a reputation for lively anecdotes, was a good musician, and had an active interest in racing, yachting and boating.
He retired in April 1888 and died at Brunswick on 11 November 1891, survived by his wife Maria, née Tucker, one son and two daughters.11

  • 27 Nov 1877, SUPPOSED SUICIDE.
    The adjourned inquest on the body of Samuel Bryant Odell was resumed at the morgue yesterday, before Dr. Youl the city coroner. The following evidence was taken:-
    William Henry Odell, a clerk, residing in Hoddle street, stated - The deceased was my brother. His name was Samuel Bryant Odell. I think his age was 25 years. He lived with his mother, and was not married. I last saw the deceased alive on Tuesday morning, the 13th inst. He had been out all night, and was entering the house as I left it, about half past 8 o'clock. He appeared to be sober. I recognise the gold chain and locket as my brother's property. I never noticed the watch. I received the watch, chain, and locket from Miss Brown, at the Town hall Hotel, on the 21st inst. Miss Brown told me that Fleming gave her the watch the previous day. I went to the Town-hall Hotel in consequence of receiving a message that the watch was there. The deceased never went home again after leaving to go to his office on the morning of the 13th inst.
    William L. Jack, member of the firm of T. Jaques Martin and Co, insurance agents, stated,—The deceased was in our employ as clerk. He was last at the office on Tuesday, the 13th inst. I have since examined his accounts, and found a deficiency of £107. This money the deceased took on Tuesday, the 13th inst. It was on open cheque given him to pay away, and instead of doing so he cashed it and kept the money. Other defalcations have been found, amounting in all to fully £250 the deceased was always steady and well behaved in the office.
    Charles Fleming, a turf commission agent, stated,—I knew the deceased Odell. He had some betting transactions with me. He lost £18 10s. to me on the Derby, which he paid on the next Monday. The deceased won £8 on the Cup which I paid him on the 12th inst. I saw the deceased on the evening of the 13th inst. in Swanson-street. He inquired for Mr. M'Evoy. Mr. B Thompson and I walked down the street with him, and at his invitation we had a glass of claret at the Town-hall Hotel. Soon after we left there and walked up the street to the Earl of Zetland Hotel, where we had come more claret. Mr John Thompson came in, and we had a game of whist for champagne. Two bottles of champagne were brought in. We left the hotel about 10 minutes to 1 o'clock, and had a cup of coffee at the stall at the corner. The deceased asked me to take care of his watch and chain, as he was going to see a young woman. He left to go across the street to get a cab. He was then quite sober. On Monday last I saw Miss Brown, and she told me that the deceased was missing, and asked me to give her the watch, and she would send it to his mother. I sent the watch to Miss Brown, as desired, and got a receipt for it. I never gambled with the deceased for money. I went up to Ballarat on business, and not to avoid the inquest.
    Frederick W. Tityns, a turf commission agent, stated,—I knew the deceased well. I paid the deceased £48 on the 12th inst., being the settlement of our bets on the Cup. I had paid the deceased £25 on the previous Monday, in settlement on the Derby. The deceased told me that he won £100 or £160 on the meeting. I saw the deceased on the night of the 13th inst., between 9 and 10 o'clock. He was sober.
    John Bourke, a constable, stated,—I found the body of the deceased on the morning of the 21st inst. in the Yarra, about 20 yards above the Falls bridge, and brought it to the morgue. I found the sum of 5s on the body, a bunch of keys, some gold shirt-studs, and a letter from London.
    Dr. Youl, having briefly summed up the evidence, the jury returned a verdict to the effect that the deceased was found drowned in the Yarra on the 21st inst, but that there was no evidence to show how or when he got into the river.5

  • 14 Sep 1876, TOTAL LOSS OF THE S S. DANDENONG. UPWARDS OF FIFTY LIVES LOST.
    The heavy southerly gale which raged with almost hurricane force along the east coast on Sunday has been most disastrous to the shipping which encountered it, and it is probable that we have not yet heard the full result of the damage done. It was only yesterday we had to record the great loss suffered by the racing community in the death of several valuable racehorses on board the A S N. Co's steamer City of Melbourne, which ran into the gale, and now we have intelligence of the total loss of the S.S. Dandenong, belonging to Captain W. Howard Smith, which left here on Friday last with a full complement of passengers for Sydney. In addition to the loss of the vessel, it was also announced that at least 17 persons had been drowned, and it was feared that 10 more had met with a like fate. At first the news was disbelieved, but as telegram after telegram was received, the sceptics were forced to believe. The first announcement was made by the posting out side The Argus office of the following telegram from our Sydney correspondent : Sydney, Wednesday.
    "The Dandenong has broken her shaft, and was half-full of water, off Jervis Bay. A barque took off 28 persons ; 17 were drowned, and 40 were still on board the Dandenong when the barque had to run for it, the weather being so bad. The Dandenong has not since been heard of, and it is supposed that she has foundered."
    About the same time a telegram was re- ceived by Messrs. W. Howard Smith and Co., and posted at their office. Market-street : '"Newcastle, Wednesday. - Barque Albert William arrived here with 28 passengers and 12 crew of the Dandenong. The chief officer of the Dandenong reports that the shaft broke, and the ship was disabled off Jervis Bay. She was last seen at half-past 8 on Monday night. The chief and second officers are saved, but the captain and about 40 passengers and crew are supposed to be lost. The crew go on board the Cheviot as passengers to Sydney to-night."
    Telegrams kept coming through in rapid succession, and from these it appears that the s.s. Dandenong, under the command of Captain J, Irwin, left Melbourne on Friday afternoon on her usual voyage to Sydney and Newcastle. In addition to her crew of 28 men, she had 27 passengers in the saloon and 28 in the steerage. She had a fine northerly wind down the bay, and it continued so until 5 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, when it suddenly chopped round to the eastward, and rapidly increased in violence until it was blowing a gale, and was gradually veering to the south, causing a nasty cross sea to run. The wind increased in violence during Sunday, and the ship laboured heavily, shipping great quantities of water, but she was making good progress, and no fears were entertained of her not weathering the gale, which was now blowing with hurricane force. At 1 a.m. on Monday, however, when she was off Cape St. George, the headland forming Jervis Bay, the engines suddenly stopped, and almost immediately after the chief engineer reported to the captain-who had never left the deck throughout the gale-that the engines had broken down. Captain Irwin at once hauled his ship to the wind on the starboard tack, and attempted to stand off the land to the eastward. The gale still increased in violence, and it was 'impossible to show a rag of sail to keep her to the wind, and she consequently laboured heavily in the trough of the sea. To add to the danger the ship began to make water 'rapidly, and it was then discovered that the shaft of the screw had snapped in two, and had by some means damaged the hull in the after compartment. The pumps were promptly manned, the passengers and crew working in relays, while a party under the chief officer attempted to stop the leak by using the mattresses and bedding from the cabins. This attempt, however, proved useless, and then, with a view of lightening the ship, and so causing her to labour less violently, Captain Irwin 'gave orders to throw overboard some of the cargo from the main hold. The water, how- ever was still rapidly increasing in the hold, and it was evident that she was fast settling down in the water. The sea was running so high that it was but little use launching the boats-with which the Dandenong was well supplied as they would most certainly have been swamped. At about 2 p.m. on Monday a vessel hove in sight, and signals of distress having been hoisted, she soon bore down to their assistance, and proved to be the barque Albert William, from Wallaroo bound to Newcastle with copper ore. With great difficulty and danger one of the Dandenong's boats was lowered, whioh, under the charge of Mr. Lawson, the chief officer, took several of the passengers on board, and proceeded alongside the barque. As they neared her, however, they got into the trough of the sea, and the ship striking her heavily at once swamped her, and only the chief officer, two of the crew, and a child were saved. Another boat was lowered from the steamer, and this successfully placed its cargo of passongers on board the barque, but when attempting to complete a second trip she was smashed alongside, and only two of those on board of her were rescued. A third boat was lowered from the Dandenong, and in charge of Mr. McEwan, the second officer, essayed the difficult journey, but on going alongside the barque she met with the same fate, but most of those in her succeeded in saving their lives, only two being lost. By this time darkness was setting in, and it became impossible to tranship any more persons until daylight The captain of the Albert William, however, promised to keep by her until morning, and then attempt to take off the '10 souls remaining on board. He had, however, but little hopes that she would live through the night, as the gale showed no signs of abating, and she was labouring so heavily that he expected her to founder instantly. A good look-out was kept for her during the first watch, but between 8 and 9 o'clock the steamer's lights suddenly disappeared, and it was then supposed that she had gone to the bottom. The Albert William remained hove-to all night, but when daylight came, there was nothing to be seen of the Dandenong, and she stood away on her course for New castle. Although she had to pass Sydney Heads on her way, for some unknown reason, the captain contented himself with merely showing his number, and gave no notice of the unfortunate occurrence. Had th¡s been done the disaster would have been known at least 12 hours earlier, and steamers could have been promptly sent from Sydney to tho scene of the wreck, in the hopes of yet finding some trace of the unfortunate vessel.
    As soon as the disaster became known, the New South Wales Government despatched the Government steamer Thetis to the scene of the wreck, aud also telegraphed to Wollongong, Kiama, Terrara, Marura, and Jervis Bay, to send out any assistance available. Commodore Hoskins, commanding the Australian squadron, also gave instructions to H.M.S. Sappho to proceed to the spot and searoh for the wreck. The steamers Yarra Yarra, from Sydney, and Tasmania, from Wollongong, also proceeded on the same errand during the day ; while the manager of the Bulli Coal Company sent similar instructions to despatch their steamer Bulli from Bulli.
    As soon as the first intimation of the disaster was received in Melbourne Mr. Kerford communicated with the Commissioner of Trade and Customs in order to ascertain whether it was advisable to send away the Victoria. Mr. Anderson, however, pointed out that the scene of the wreck was only about 90 miles from Sydney, and that it would take 48 hours before the Victoria could reach the spot. The New South Wales Government were, however, communicated with, and an offer was at once made to send the Victoria if it was considered necessary. The Premier of New South Wales promptly replied, thanking Sir James M'Culloch for his offer, but declining it on the ground that plenty of steamers were available in Sydney.
    It is stated that when the morning broke on board the Albert William-and as nothing was in sight it was presumed that the Dandenong had found a watery grave-the scenes on board were most heartrending. Parents had been separated from their children, and in one case a little child had lost father, mother, brothers, and sisters, and she alone was the surviving one out of a family of eight.
    Mr. M'Ewan, the second officer of the Dandenong, appears to bear a somewhat charmed life, as he was the third officer of the ill-fated ship British Admiral, that waa lost on King's Island in 1873, wben nearly all the crew and passengers were drowned. In addition to the valuable general cargo tho Dandenong had on board, she was also carrying 160 high-class stud sheep, which had been purchased by New South Wales and Riverina buyers at tbe recent annual ram-sales held by Messrs. Powers, Rutherford, and Co., and Messrs. Ettershank, Eaglestone, and Co.
    The Dandenong was well-known as a regular trader between this port and Sydney, and was purchased at home by the owner, Captain W. Howard Smith, who brought her out here. She was a staunch and strongly constructed iron screw steamer, of 743 tons, builder's measurement, and was built in 1867 at Palmer's Ironworks, Jarrow-on-Tyne, tbe same yard from which were launched tho Barrabool and Queensland. She was of the fol- lowing dimensions :-Length, 201ft; beam, 28ft. 2in; and depth of hold, 15ft. 7in; and her hull was in three water-tight compartments. The Dandenong arrived here early in January 1868 to run in conjunction with the You Yangs to Sydney and Newcastle, and during her career on the coast she proved herself a very handy vessel, and did good service for her owner. She had made 206 trips, and was on her 207th when this disaster occurred. Her engines were of 9O-horse power nominal, and she was fitted up on deck with steam appliances for the rapid discharge and taking in of cargo. Like the rest of the boats of her line, she was kept in most efficient order, and her passenger accommodation had been altered and improved some time ago. The value placed upon her by the owner is £20,000, but she is only covored by insurance to the extent of £14,000. The insurances are with the Adelaide Marine and the Southern, but these companies, it is understood, have divided the risk with other offices.
    The following is a list of the passengers who left here for Sydney in the Dandenong : Saloon.-Mrs. Whitworth, Mrs. Brodie, Mrs. M'Connachy, Mrs. Wakefield, Miss E. Smith, Miss Hilliard, Miss E. Murray, Miss M. Murray, Miss Agnes Wakefield, Miss Annie Wakefield, Miss Fitzsimmons, Miss Green, Sister St. Joseph, Messrs. Winship, Ash, G. Chambers, M'Dougall, Wakefield, T J. Malley, H. H. Steele, Wright, W. 'Murray, Hartley, Master Whitworth, and Masters J. Wakefield, T. Wakefield, and F. Wakefield. Steerage.-Mrs. Blair, Mrs. Grey, Mrs. Ward, Mrs. M.

Murray, M. Brown, and W Langston.
    The following is the list of passengers saved:- Saloon.-Captain M'Dougall, Mr. F. Asb, Mr. J. Hartley, J. Whitworth, Mr. G. Chambers, Sister St Joseph, Miss E. Murray, Miss Mary Murray, Miss Anne Green, Miss Mary Fitzsimmons, Miss Agnes Wakefield, Miss E. Smith. Steerage.-Mr. E. Walters, Mr. R. Walters, Mr. Samuel Golding, Mr. Wm. Blair, Mr. J. Osborn, Mr. J. Honey, Mr. J. M'Grath, Mrs. M. Brown, Mrs. Blair and child, Mrs. Edmonds and two ohildren, and Mrs. Ward. The following is a list of the crew on board: J.

    The following are the members of the crew saved. Mr. Lawson, chief officer ; Mr, C. M'Ewan, second officer; Mr. John Dykes second engineer; Anna Saul, stewardess) James Anderson, John Bruhn, John Ekland) Charles Christie, Charles Lingoist - Alfred, -Humphreys, able seamen ; and George Habbinder, trimmor.
    Captain M'Dougall, one of the passengers saved, has bad a recent experience of ship wreck, as he was master of the Water Lily that was lost a few months since at Port McDonnell, S.A. Mr. Wakefield, who has been lost with his wife and family, is a relation of the accountant of the Melbourne and Hobsons Bay Railway Company ; and Mrs. McConnachy, who has also been lost is the wife of the captain of the barque Moneta, which recently arrived here from New York, and was proceeding to Sydney to join her husband. As the Moneta has not yet arrived, it will be sad news for the captain when he reaches port to learn the death of his wife.
    There is still a possibility-though but a slight one-that some more of the passengers and crew have been saved by means of the other boats, but the search which is being made will soon decide the matter.
    Much sympathy is felt for Mr. Howard Smith, the owner of the Dandenong, whose recent losses in connexion with the collision between the Queensland aud the Barrabool add to the weight of this fresh disaster.
    (AUSTRALASIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS TELEGRAMS )
    NEWCASTLE, WEDNESDAY Morning.
    The barque Albert William, laden with copper ore, arrived here this morning with 28 passengers and 12 of the orew of the steamer Dandenong, whioh was in a disabled condition off Jervis Bay, with her after compartment full of water, and fears were entertained that she would founder, as the captain of the barque had little hope of her living in such a sea. Seventeen persons were drowned in tranship- ping to tho barque, and darkness coming on the barque could not stand by the steamor any longer. Forty of the . passengers and crew are said to be left on the wreck. A little girl was saved who has lost father, mother, three brothers, and two sisters, and a boy is saved who has lost his mother. Two Sisters of Mercy are amongst the survivors.
    The following is tho report of the voyage of the Dandenong :-She left Port Phillip Heads on Friday evening for Sydney and Newcastle, and experienced fine weather up to Saturday, the 9th inst., but at 5 p.m. on that day the wind suddenly chopped round to heo eastward, and rapidly increased to a gale. This weather continued throughout the night, and at 2 a.m. on Sunday the vessel laboured heavily, shipping much water. The gale increased in intensity, and the sea ran mountains high. At 1 a.m. on Monday the engineer reported the engines to bave broken down, and the ship was hauled off to the eastward. The gale increasing in violence, the ship commenced to make water rapidly, and tho passengers and crew worked hard to stop the leak, whioh was found to be situated in the afterpart of the ship. Beds and bedding were used in,the work, but all to no purpose, and the cargo was then taken out aft, and thrown overboard.
    The water, however, was still increasing, and the ship was sinking rapidly, when the barque Albert William hove in sight. Signals of distress were made, and as the vessel came close preparations were made for lowering the boats. Three boats were lowered, under the charge of the officers of the Ship, and filled with passengers. One of the boats almost immediately swamped alongside, and 17 persons, including a number of women, were drowned, there being no chance of saving them. The other boats reached the barque in safety.
    The boats went backwards and forwards untll night set in, and the barque remained alongside the disabled steamer all night, keeping a good look out, until the Dandenong's lights suddenly disappeared, when the barque squared away for Newcastle.
    The stern of the Dandenong was smashed, and very little hopes were entertained of the steamer living through the night.
    FURTHER PARTICULARS.
    NEWCASTLE, AFTERNOON
    The Dandenong's lights suddenly disappeared between 8 and 9 o'clock on Monday night, at which time she is supposed to have foundered.
    There was only one good boat available on board the Dandenong at that time, the re mainder having been sent away with pas- sengers to the barque.
    The barque, which was deeply laden with copper ore, stood by all night, and when daylight came, nothing could be seen of the steamer. The barque therefore squared away at eight o'clock in the morning, and made for Newcastle, having passed Sydney Heads yesterday forenoon, but only signalled her number. There was only one boat available, and it made two trips. The passengers and crew saved from the Dandenong look in a deplorable condi- tion, and hundreds of people assembled on the wharf to witness their landing.
    A deputation has waited on the mayor, asking him to call a public meeting to afford relief to the sufferers. Immediately on the receipt of the news, the Government ordered the pilot steamer Thetis to proceed at once to Jervis Bay, and also telegraphed to Kiama and Wollongong, giving similar instructions to any steamers there. The Commodore will probably be asked to despatch a man-of war.
    - The manager of the Bulli Coal Company telegraphed to Bulli, instructing the master of the steamer Bulli, to proceed at once to Jervis Bay.
    The following are the names of those saved -.-Captain M'Dougall, Edward Walters, Frederick Ash, Richard Walters, Samuel Golding,Willlam Blair, T. Osborne, J. Honey, J. Hartley, J. Whitworth, G. Chambers, J. M'Grath, J. Brown, Mrs. Blair and child, Mrs. H. Brown, Mrs. E. Walchman, Mrs. Edmonds and two children, Mrs. Ward, Sisters of St. Joseph, Elizabeth Murray and Mary Murray, Ann Green, Mary Fitzsimmons, Agnes Wakefield, Mary Smith, and two able seamen, J. Anderson and G. Atkinson.
    The chief officer, Mr. Lawson, who is saved, says that the following were drowned: -Mr. and Mrs. Wakefield and five children, Mrs H. R. Whitworth, Mr. Fergusson, Mrs. Brodie, G. Payne, Laurie, a seaman, and five others.4
