Captain Hockley, of the S.S. "China" of Glasgow. Awarded Telescope, value 20L.

The barque "Achilles" experienced a very heavy gale on the 17th of March, which carried away her bulwarks, boats, &c., and rendered her helpless. On the 18th the "China" lowered her lifeboat which took off by means of life-lines the entire crew numbering 12 and safely conveyed them on board the "China" in which ship they were taken to Halifax, N.S., having been on board 9 days. The owner of the "China" refused compensation for subsistence.
