are favored with the following by a Correspondent: -
Tuesday noon a Schooner Boat belonging to Jno. Henley Esq. was upset by a
sudden gust of wind in Essequebo River, nearly opposite Plantn. Two Brothers,
Mr. James Wilson, Dr. Flood, Mr. Hofstede, and Mr. Guthrie were Passengers from
Fort Island going to Leguan; fortunately for them a Sloop the property of J. P.
Muncker Esq. observed them go down and immediately tacked about to their
assistance, picked them and the crew all up, used them in a manner truly
humane, and landed them at Parica, where General Dalrymple had that moment
arrived to embark on board a Boat sent there to convey him to Fort Island; but
not regarding his own convenience he was pleased to order her to Sail after the
Wreck to endeavour if possible to save her; Robt. Gordon Esq. who was with the
General, went in her and used every exertion as did also Archd. Iver Esq. by
lending his Schooner which was soon after passing. Every thing was done to get
the Wreck in shore without effect, when night coming on they put out an anchor
and cable from her and loosed the tow-rope in case of getting foul in the
night. On the morning they found she had parted the cable, drifted farther up
the River, and was standing with her Bows right down and part of her Stern only
could be seen now and then above water. The Passengers speak in the highest
terms of the attention and benevolence of J. P. Muncker, C. M. Overweg and
Eberhardi Esqrs. on board the Sloop towards them, as well as the particular
concern evinced by General Dalrymple.
Entered and Cleared since our last.
