At the meeting of the members of the Royal Geographical Society, on Monday, Captain Washington stated the Admiralty had that day received a telegraphic communication from Aberdeen, stating the Captain Kellett's vessel, which had been abandoned in the ice so long since, had drifted out into Davis's Strait, 1200 miles from where it had been left. It had been taken possession of by a whaler; and, having been manned with a crew, was expected home almost immediately.
