Extract from the “Hampshire Telegraph“.

Portsmouth, December 13, 1813

Letters from New South Wales of January last represent the markets at Sidney to be glutted with India produce, and every commercial transaction to be cramped by the extreme scarcity of specie. The ship Campbell Macquarie, of Calcutta, had been wrecked on Macquarie Island. The cargo of 1,650 sealskins was lost. Captain Siddons, with the officers and crew, saved themselves on the island; and after residing there from the 10th of June to the 11th of October, they were fortunately discovered and taken off by the Perseverance, belonging to Port Jackson.
