A brown pointer dog was found on board La Belle
Julie, and it is stated that some bloody shirts have been since discovered. -There is also a report of two young men, dressed in sailors' apparel, entering at a
• very early hour, on the morning, we believe, of the vessel first being seen at Bamiow, the house of a publican in the Faythe. He inquired if they -belonged to the wrecks, meaning either of two other wrecks at present -on the coast. The reply was" No." The landlord, who had spent many years in France, seeing, a 1 ayonet half protruding at the wrist of one of them, observed, "Sir, I believe that is a French bayonet ; " and was answered, "I believe it is." The man added, addressing his comrade, "Come, Jack, let us be off." These facts, connected with that of the bloody shirts, invest the entire circumstance of the vessel stranding with a degree of inexplicable uncertainty, that time only can bring to light—Wexford Herald. [We must therefore, we suppose, trust to Time ; meanwhile, the Magistrate may, as the doctor does by Nature, give the old fellow a clap on the shoulder, to encourage him, and make him mend his pace if possible, in order that we may get at the explanation of this inexplicable affair as soon as possible.] On Tuesday night last, during .a dense fog, the brig Eagle struck a rock at the Skerries off Portrait', and shortly afterwards went down ; all hands, six in number, perished. The top-masts appear at low water. The same night, a sloop, the Nancy, ' of Inverness, struck on a rock a little to the westward of where the Eagle was wrecked, and went down ; three out of four hands perished. The survivor lashed himself with his handkerchief to the top-mast, and was taken off (when almost dead) by a boat going to the Eagle.—Derry Sentinel.
It appears, after all the racket held about the Reverend Mr. Griffith, that he is neither burked nor buried, but safe and whole in the land of the living. The Government will be slow to offer a reward under similar circumstances again. The following letter, received at Ply- mouth from the Reverend J. Hocken, dated St. Heliers, Jersey, De- cember 30, 1831, puts the fact of Mr. Griffith's safety beyond doubt—.
"I am," says Mr. Hocken, "happy in being able to contradict the report of the supposed murder of the Reverend W. Griffith. Under the influence of power- ful temptations, he was induced to leave England. He reached this island on the 25th instant ; but after prayer, counsel, and reflection, he resolved to return again to his native country, where! understand he has safely arrived."
