tbe river having every appearance of be

continued down the river without any oh
struction trom the Ice until 3 A. M. ol the
following day, when they tell in with a
tron'l field ot ic%, which by day light in
creased so as to stretch completely across
the river; clewed up the fore-top-sail and
found it impossible to proceed .but in the
direction the ice was moving—the live? of
all on board being much exposed, it was
considered necessary to hoist the long boat
eight feet above the deck, so that in the
event ot any accident all bands might im
mediately take to the boat. They conti
nued in this condition until Sunday morn
ing, when tbe vessel struck oft St. Rocb—
sounded tbe pumps and found she made
bo wat«r—continued driving on tbe sbnals
with great violence until 10 A. M.— sound
ed the pumps again, and found six teet
wafer in the bold, tbe vessel at thu time
being on ber broad side—at hall past 10
she righted, there being then as much wa
ter in th» hold as there was along side—at
II A M. the brig was completely filled
with water; and at the rising tide very
large quantities of ice struck the vessel &
accumulated until it had risen as high as
the rails, the extreme pressure ot which
then caused the vessel to fall over on
her beam ends—all band? immediately
jumped into the long boat without being
able to save (lie least article of clothing.
At ten minute? past II the masts went by
the board, and tbe vessel turned keel up—
they then observed that part of her bottom
was out. The master pilot, and crew,
with the grea>e«t difficulty reached the
shore. On Monday the master went on j
tbe highest hill n*ar the river, and with a
glass endeavored to discover the vessel,
but without effect.

Richmond. lAlh JVov , 1823.
Having been requested by Mr Archi
bald M’lntvre, the Manager of ihe t^uan
tico Canal Lottery, to examine the prin
ciples on which Lotteries are formed bv
the combination of number, a plan which
be purposes to pursue in raising the money
which he is authorised, by hi-* contract
with the commissioners, to raise ; and
having attentively examined the princi
ples on which such Lotteries are formed ;
we have no hesitation in declaring, that,
in our view, the plan is perfectly lair and
correct. We have particularly examined
the scheme of bis first class, consisting of
4060 tickets formed by the combination
ot 30 numbers; and find, that ibe amount
of tbe prizes which must, of necessity, be
drawn therein,by tbedtawing o!5out of the
30nomber? as proposed by the scheme, is
D26.390, which is the amount ot tbe 4060
tickets at tbe scheme price of D6 50; con
sequently, no other profit can accrue to
tbe said Commissioners, or to Mr. M’ln
tyre, on tbe sale of all the tickets in the
scheme, at that price, than the 15 per
cent- to be deducled Iroro the prizes
We are also of opinion, this plan has a
decided preference over tbe old, on ac
count of tbe celerity and accuracy of the
determination of the prizes. It precludes
tbe possibility of.tbe commission ot frauds
or mistakes in tbe drawing, and saves
much waste ot time and expense.
By the drawing ot this Class in the
month ot January next, in tbe city ol Rich
mond, prizes to the amount ol D26,390
will be distributed in five minute*
