Jan. 2nd.—Contains an advertisement of the report of the “Norfolk
Association for preserving the lives of Shipwrecked Mariners,” held at
Norwich, William Barth, Esq., in the chair, from which it appears that an
investigation had taken place as to the loss of seven men from the brig
Hamond, and that as the lifeboat was not constructed with a view to
affording aid to vessels immediately on the beach, Mr. Ambrose Palmer had
most kindly offered to supply a boat for that purpose.
