THE BRIG ROBIN HOOD IN A GALE.

(BY TELEGRAPH.)

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDANT)

SYDNEY, Wednesday

The brig Robin Hood, bound from Kaipara to Melbourne with timber, but which put in here yesterday, appears to have encountered rough weather. On Friday last, during a heavy storm, the sea swept clean over her decks, displacing everything movable, and throwing the steering gear into a state of confusion. Captain M'Donell (McDonald), whilst attempting to evade the force of a wave, received a blow from a part of the bulwark which was washed away, but he will be convalescent in the course of a few days. The vessel will in all probability not proceed to Melbourne, but discharge her cargo here, and effect the repairs which are needed before proceeding again to sea.
