The schooner Ellen of this port, the property of Messrs. Stone and Cook, sailed from Dunedin, in ballast, on the 1st o Jun last, bound for Auckland, under the command of Mr. Benjamin Richards, former- ly master of the ketch Traveller's Bride, with the following passengers - Mr. and Mrs. Leon Casney and a child. Since that time neither trace nor in- telligence of the unfortunate vessel has been re- ceived. A vessel was fallen in with, bottom up- wards, between this and Wellington, which was then supposed to have been the Canterbury, but as her saftey has been subsequently ascertained, it is now conjectured that the wreck seen must have been that of the luckless Ellen.
