Wreck of a theatrical Company.
--The yacht Mary Kingsland
left New York in October last, with the "Scott Family," a dramatic corps consisting of three gentlemen and four ladies, who gave theatrical representations at the various Southern ports.
On the 5th inst., a gale drove her high and dry on the Florida coast
In this condition, exposed to the attacks of wild beasts and Indians
(some of whom remain in the vicinity,) they remained near the wreck subsisting on Palmetto
tops and wild cabbage, until they were rescued by the arrival of the steamer Cahawba
As soon as the steamer got under way, the rescued party was amply provided with what they most needed — refreshments and dry clothing — which were tendered them by the officers and passengers.
Nearly the whole of their property, including the yacht, has been lost, all of which they value at $4,000.
