A slight quiver came over the lip of the Voting girl, who stood silent, before her mother, as pale and certainly ns beautiful 'as the most exquisite statuo Lifting her moistened blue eye to her mother, while an unwonted energy kindled it, she answered.

And why was it, that amid the censures nod harsh iudiremeiU uf the world, the so wreck of this long missed vessel She, sailer from New South Wales, early in May, last year, and wns wrecked on the 21st of that month, in lal. 34, long. 155 12 east, on Eliza Roof. The crew immedi ately took the boats, and put to sen, with the intention of making Repulse Bay. The two boats parted company on the third daw Ono portion of the crew, con sisting of the captain, his wife, chief mate, and some of the sailors, were thrown on an unkown island, inhabited by savages, and the following interesting narrative from Iho mouth of Mrs. Frnser, the captain's wile, who escaped, is from the Australian of October 111: "Mrs, Frusor called at our office on Sat urday, allernoon and gave us the following particulars: The longboat's company consisted of Capt. Frnser, Mr, Drown, the chief mate. Mrs. Fraser, and Mr. Daxtcr, the 2d mate. After they had been on shore some tune, a great number of the natives were observed, and Mr. Fraser suggested giving themselves up quietly to the natives, as they wero entirely defence, less, and. of course, already in their power. They had scarcely tune to make the suggestion when several tribes came down upon them, one of which immediately cap tured Captain Fraser ; another tribe took Mr. Brown, and thu third Mr. Baxter. The natives would not allow Mrs. Fraser to go with either of them, and left her alone upon n sandy beach, and the next morning a number of old women, with some child ren came down, and they gave Mrs. Fra scr to understand that she must go with them and carry one of the children upon her shoulders, which Mrs. Fraser, of nc cess'uy, complied with.

LOSS OF THE STERLING CASTLE. Tho arrival of tho James, from Sydney, New South Wales, al Liverpool, on Sat urday, brings the particulars ot tho -'iip gross of the business in this country. The Committee, so far as their investigations havo been prosecuted, express themselves highly griitiacd with the fiiucss eif this country for ihe growth and manufacture of Silk and the progress it has already made, in tun cstaun-ihincnt ol incipient instiludous. In Mtine, the legislature tifiurs u bounty eif live cents on every pound of Cocoons and fifty cents on every pound of reeled Silk. Tho subject is enlisting some attention there. In .Veto Hamnshire one Company is established and many individuals aro en tering into the business, but no legislative aid has yet been granted. Vermont, the egislnturc gives a bounty of ten cents on every pounl of Cocoons raised in the State, nnd liie business eif mulberry trees and Silk worms is exciting much attention in many towns-. Jiiassaciusclls leads in the business und her legislature offers tft-oo for every ten pounds of Cocoons, fifty cents for every pound of raw silk and jJI.OO per pound tor every pound ot reeled anu twisted. Thcro aro various incorporated companies in Massachusetts, besides indi viduals in every section uf tho Sin'u direct ly engaged in thu business. Tho North ampton Company has a capualof gl 50,000, with uuoui three nunurcd acres ot land, various buildings, with machinery in oper ation and over 100.000 Chineso nrd While Mulb 'rry trees. Tho Now England Silk Company at Dcdham has a capital of ilOO,. 000 and twenty or thirty acres of MulLcrry trees. Tho Massachusetts bilk L-omouiy at Framingham has a capital of $1 50,000 and one hundred and sixty acres ot laud, with nearly one hundred thousand mulbor ry trees. There aro nlso the Boston, Nan tucket, Roxbnry and Newbnryport incor porated Silk Companies, all ot winch are prepuring to grow and manufacture Silk, or are already in successful operation. The business is also prosecuted with sin gular success by farmers, who make it a part ot their household operations, in ni most every section of the State. In Rhode Island, ono incorporated Company exists with a capital of 4l 00,000 at Providence, and tho business is enlisting the interest of people in other sections of tho State. Conncct'icni, whero bilk has long been grown on a small scale, the legislative en coiiragcment is ample, paying il,00 for every one hundred Italian or Chinese Mul berry trees five years old, and titty cent: lor every pound of reeled Silk. There are two incorporated companies, one with capital of g'20,000 al Mansfield nnd the other with a capital ot ju.uuu at uari ford.
