The barque Neva, bound to Sydney, with female convicts from Cork : the third convict ship bound to the Australian Colonies which has been lost within two years ; and far exceeding both the first lamentable occurrences in loss of life and destruction of property. The first of these wrecks was the female convict ship Amphitrite, off Solange, in 1833, when 170 lives fell a sacrifice ; the second the unfortunate George the Third, lost at the entrance of D'Entrecasteaux channel on the 12th of April last, with a loss of 134 lives ; whilst at the third, the present dreadful wreck, 224 lives have been lost.
