The Firs: iakhng wfhnneatable news
received here last night, by the Long Is
land R-ilroad train, which brought" intelli
gence that the new and elegant steamer
Adaatle was ashore on Fiber's Island,
nearly opposite New London in the Sound.
An extra from the New London News
Office, dated on Thursday afternoon says:
At 10 oV.ock this morning the At! lis
came down from Ailyn's Point, and had
ercat difficulty in landing on account of
he violence 7 the gale. After Lmdmg
he started for New lork.
Ths Mjbejan, due here at 3 o'clocn,
arrircd at this morning, having anchor
ed several hours under Charles Wand.
Earlv this morning it was rumored that
a steamer v-as ashare on Fisher's Island,
opposite North Hut, and not tx from the
South Dumpling, and by the aid o! glasses
ii was ascertained to be t!ie Atlantic. As
seen as the Mnhcgan arrived, Capt. Van
Pel: determined to attempt to relieve her.
TheM. has jr.it returned (all P. M.)
and reports Ike Atlantic to be at anchor a
bout a quarter cf a mile from the share,
arid apparently riding with ease.
Her smoke pipes and paddle boxes were
one, supposed to have been removed y,
prevent the anion of the wind from driv
ing her ashore. The Mohegan, owing to
ihe violence of the gale, could hold no
MMiriMitraiion with those on l)oard, and
could learr. r.e facts in -relation to her get
ling into such a situation.
it is supposed, from the position she
was first been in, that she had made some
progress up the Sound, when some part
if her machinery breaking she was com
pelled to anchor, and the fierceness of the
gale drove her on a lee shore.
On Friday steamer New Haven crime
down from Ailyn's Point to New London
for the purpose of going to the relief of
the Atlantic, but the weather was so bois
terous that the attempt was abandoned.
During the course of the evening, the
steamer Massachusetts, from Stoning'on,
arrived here, and reported that the Atlan
tic wasa total wreck, nothing being left
but the wheel-house and engine, which
were washed ashore above high water
mark. The Massa-lmsetts passed lb-;
Atlantic on Thursday afternoon, at a dis
tance of alout three quarters of a mile, at
which time her smoke pipes were down,
end she appeared to be -.ground and drag
ging ; but the wind was so high, and the
rea so rough, the captain cf the- Massachu
setts dared not go any closer to her.
On the return, the Massachusetts pass
ed within half a mile of the wreck, near
cnouz'u Car those on hoard lu see pciaoils
ou the .shore, supposed to be a part of the
passengers, but the ga'e was stili so vio
lent as to forbid any nearer approach.
Th-ee accounts, vague as they were,
prepared the public mind for a tale of dis
aster which has been more than realized
this morning. By the Long Island rail
road this morning the following extra was
received from the ofiice of the New Lon
don Ne ws :

It has already been stated in our col

the Il:h of October, rain fell" in torrents
in many parts of France, and particular
k the ralley of the Loire. On the after
coon of that day, the river and its tributa

few hours, the inundation was most awful.
Propcr.y to the extent of mi Lous of francs
was destroyed thousands of cattle per

Whole hamlets were swept awav, and
scveralviliages were completely submer

GTURE OF TAHRCO.
By the arrival cf the U. S. stealer

United States squadron cn the I lib i.ust.
We announced in yesterday morning's e

In coming hither Oom. Perry touched at
the Brazos and despatched a lieutenant lo
Hen. Patterson's camp lo obtain troops
for the garrison. The Mississippi then
came to the Bdiz? for the same object.
Wc learn from proper sources that about
one hundred and fiky men, recruited for
the 1st and 3d Infantry, will be despatch

Hie remainder arc expected to-day or to

Major General Scott,
This h)e heed of our Army is new
in this city, at the City Hotel, en rovlt
for the South and seat of war. A report
is current that he wiii leave to-day in the
Southerner, for Charleston ; but this, wc
are assured, is a m's'aki.
Of course nothing deSnito can be known
of the ord';r: under vh:ch Gen. Scott is t
act, hut there seem.-: to he iitue doubt dial
h:s iU s'imst-on is Tampico, and that the
reln.ijrecme;:!-ordered are to act under him
there, for the purpose o If effecting a junc
tion vidi Gen. Taylor at San Luis Poto
si. The Government, we suspect, have
abandoned the idea of an immediate march
from Monterey to San Luis Poiosi. not
only on account of the distance (30
f. miles) and the great difficulty of obtaining
water ou the route, but or. account ol tue
necessity, if it is attempted, of doubling
or tripling the force under Taylor's com
mand. Tampico, therefore, we presume
is to be the Sine of operations, and Gen.
Scott, reinforced bv regulars from Gen.
Taylor's division, and by Gen. Wool,
will probably advance, we believe, from
(hat point to S-.n Luis Potosi, ?nd meet
Santa Anna. On ti.is route there is an
abundance of water from the ritcr Panu
co, and its tributaries, and the distance
only 150 miles. Ii is highly proper that I
Gen. Scott, outranking Gen. lavlor and
Gen. Wool, should be put al the head of
this expedition, inasmuch as the co-operation
of the three distant divisions will be
necessary, but it is not understood that
he is to supersede Gen. Taylor; though
he would outrank him by seniority in the
same field of operations. Afser die junc
tion at San Luis Poiosi, and the probable
capture of the city of Vera Cruz, it is pro
bable that if peace is not made, a serious
etlort will be made upon the city cf Mex
ico. A lew days ao, it is stated, the Presi
dent and War Secretary sent for General
Scott to consult with him and receive his
plan of operations, under the present exi
gencies of the war. He detailed them, they
were accepted, and be was given a rare
f'ttaicJie for their execution, in person, if
he c) io.se. The War Department, we
have every reason to believe, acknowl
edges itself under the greatest obligations
to General Scott for the efficient services
he has rendcrc.l, in the conduct cf the
war the lines of his march, ihe appor
tionment of the troops, the points of at
tack, and the arrangement for supplies of
the several detachments of the army of
occupation and invasion. And it is said
to be the express wish of General Taylor
that Gen. Scott should take the command.
There is the most cordial good feeling
between the two officers. We are chad
to see, even at this late d-.y, that a plan
for a campaign is set ferdi, which can
meet with some approbation from the

Gen. Scott. The joint adwee wisely
jziven and well received, I believe, was
that there should be all possible vigor im

and Navy, and as far as possible, that the
one should aid vnd sustain the other. The
failures of the two attacks upon Alvarado,
and the co;!cequeeee? of these reverses,
have put more public spi'-it into the coun
sels of the Government than die combined
victories by the bind forces from May to

I tckl you a few weeks back, on the au
thority of the celebrated Dr. Ryan, thai
the Asiatic Ch!e;-3 was silently, slowly,
but sure'r approaching Europe. The
accounts which you received bv the last
steamer, showed this sinuous and fatal
oregrees from Seinde, in British India,
unto Persia, where it struck down prince
and peasant, the latter in vaat numbers.
It is now hovering over the frontiers of
Russia and Turkey; making frightful rav
ages, and stealthily moving onwards, de
fying check or control. The British gov
ernment arc goin to send a medical com
mission into Turkey and Russia, to exam

Europe, it v. ill prove an awful visitation,
particularly when forming a junction with
the murrain now affecting cattle, and the

American says that there is a model cf
San Juan d'Uiloa in the office of the Ch:cf
Engineer Department. It is a very thor
ough piece ol work, and seems to have
brought all who have examined it to the
conclusion thai it would be almost a wan
ton waste of "life to attempt to take the
Caode. There is a competent scientific
rs well as numerical force within, to de
fend it, and the artificial means of defence
are, among many other things, no less
than two hundred and four mounted guns,
some of them of the heaviest calibre, and
many of them directed by skilful French
officers. It vas never so strongly defend

Gibraltar. It mi?ht be taken, but it would
be trilling with life to attempt it.
