      . . . . .

The vessel reported ashore on Pigeon Reef, in our last number, was the brig GENERAL BROCK, and it is feared she will become a total wreck. Capt. Pearson and the crew got ashore on the island and were taken off by H. M. S. MOHAWK, which as mentioned in our last, was sent by Capt. Fowell, to their assistance.

N., in sending out Her Majesty's steamer MOHAWK to the relief of the brigantine GENERAL BROCK, wrecked during the storm of Wednesday last, and the sufferers would particularly like to offer their thanks to Lieu. Tyson, Commanding the MOHAWK, and Lieu. Willoughby, for the very important aid rendered in rescuing them form the perilous situation in which they were placed. M. T. Hunter
