H.M.S. "Herald," and Captain Denham.
H.M.S. "Herald" was at Ovalau in November last; and as we were there at that time, we had the pleasure of spending a day on board with Captain Denham, and were charmed with his urbanity and kindness. They have thoroughly surveyed that island, and the surrounding reefs and waters; and went back to Sydney by way of Solomon's Isles. We are now expecting their return. Captain Denham came up to Bau in one of the ship's boats, and visited Thakombau, and stayed a few days at Vewa.
