"Saturday afternoon, Sept. 9-arr. H.M. ship Acbar, Capt. Bullen, from a cruise off Newyork. On the 31st ult. lost her main-mast, &c. in a gale. Messrs. Haswell and Marley, midshipmen, were killed; and midshipman Whidden, and several seamen wounded, by the falling of the Acbar's mast.—Acadian Recorder, Sat., 16 Sept. 1815.
(As 9 Sept. is the date Louisa reports on the arrival from New York of Captain Osborn, it is possible he arrived that very day on one of the above mentioned vessels--perhaps on the Valparisa if he is the merchant mentioned in S9n1 , or on one of the war ships if he is, e.g., a captain of marines.)
