LOSS OF THE SHIP FUSILIER AND TWO HUNDRED LIVES. A strange fatality has befallen this vessel—one of Messrs. Baines and Co.'s, of Liverpool. Some eighteen months since she was nearly lost on the Girdler Sands at the mouth of the River Thames, she at the time be- ing outward bound to Melbourne with a large number of emigrants; the poor creatures were taken out of the rigging by the Margate lifeboat, and the ship, after re- maining on the sands for nearly a fortnight, was got off and towed back to London, whence, after undergoing necessary repairs, she re-sailed for Calcutta, which port she reached in safety. Here she was chartered for a voyage to Demerara, and took on board about 400 coolies; emigrants. From accounts received from Natal, it appears that the ship, while laying off that harbour on the 25th of last May, in a gale of wind broke from her anchors, and was totally wrecked on the Bluff Rocks at the south side of the entrance at Natal, and. twenty of her passengers were drowned, having pre- viously lost on the passage 189 from fever. The Fusilier is represented to be fully insured.
