be mustered within three hours after the -

there are no hopes of their recovery, with j
the exception of the third cook, a man

her yawl undercharge of the male, to the
Maria, and succeeded by means of cut
ting through the decks and forcing off the
doors of ihe dock' rooms, iu rescuing nine
of the sufferers.
The Sultana having received the force
of ihe collision immediately wpon her
bow, was not ir.:Ttcri:iliy injured. The
loss cf a few feet cf the guards of her bow
principally on ihe starboard side, was the
only injury-of nolo received above docks.

readiness to b;;ek her.- ' . .

until it wus done from the effects of ihe
collision. As soon -as he discovered that
the Maria was in a sinking condition, he
fang the hell to go ahead, ami forced the
latter by the bow of the Sultana, for sev

L-land where she sunk. Mr. Peters, in
this emergency, showed great presence,

point where ihe collision took place,

As soon as the Maria had settled down
upon the bar, Capt. Pease lashed the
Sultana alongside and rendered, with his
officers and crew, every assistance in his
power to aid in saving ihe properly on
the sunken vessel, and in alleviating the
distress of the "unfortunate lyings on
board of her. The sufferers were.' con
veyed to the 'cabin floor of the Sultana,
were mattresses has been provided. One
or two medical gentlemen, who chanced
te be on board, in conjunction with ihe
passenjers, went promptly to work and
enacted the parts of good Samaritans upon
the melancholy occasion.
Captain Hite, of the To! ma, who also
carnesly rendered every assistance in his
power, and farther assistance from his
boat being bcemcd unnecessary, he kindly
proffered to convey the sufferers to
Natchez, where the advantages of imme
diate medical aid al the Marine Hospital
might be obtained. If is proposal was
accepted, and before daylight the. suffer

Natchez, and placed under the charge of
the Directory of the Hospital.

We learn, says the New Orleans
Picayune, from our private correspondent
al Pensacola, that the store ship Relief
was still detained at that port. It was re
ported that she had been detained to carry
Gen. La Vega to Vera Cruz, but it was
a mere report. She was expected to get
away yesterday without fail.
.The brigAbrasia arrived atPcnsacohi on
the 18th inst. from Anton Lizardo. This
isths vessel, which brought overLieut.Ren
shaw, of die Navy, and Capt. Parkinson
of ihe brig Plimouth. Dr.'Mcsscrsmith,
the surgeon of the Truxton, also came in
the Abrasia. The additional report which
we have received by this arrival of the
-Tobasco expedition; furnishes few partic
ulars requiring mention from n. The
gallantry of Lieut. Parker, of Pittsburg, is
warmly commended. Lieut. Parker, it
will be recollected, commanded the prize

by an overpowering force of Mexicans,
whom he gallantly repulsed. Vv'c have
