Are there survivors of Sir John Franklin's Expedition?-Americans to Determine This.-
A respected, well-known citizen of this
city starts today for New York, where he is to meet Henry Grinnel, Geo. Law, F.L. Hawks, John Jay, M. Dudley Bean,and others of our distinguished countrymen, on the subject of a proposed American maritime expedition to Boothia and King William's Land, the main object being to continue and complete the history of the Franklin expedition, especially to determine the fate of all the one hundred and five companions of Sir John Franklin surviving, April 25, 1848.
  The officers and crews, numbering one hundred and five souls, are known to have safely landed on [[italic]] terra firma [[/italic]]-to have possessed abundance of provision, ammunition, fuel and clothing-in the regions of fish and game, and surrounded by the iron sons of the North, the kindly Esquimaux.
