T lie io wan an inimenso Democratic
meeting in BonUtn wn Suliirduy nibt.
General B. F. liutlur was tho ointor
on llio occaaion and his stirring speech
lor the Democratic ticket will go upon
the record as one of the most brilliant
efforts of his life.
(Jenoral Butler was enthuiiiastically
received. When the cheering had
subsided, hu bogan to tell why lie had
decided to support Hancock for the
Presidency. In so doing he promised
at the outset neither to detraut from
or odd one jot or tittle to that declara
tion of principles w hich bad licon his
guide in political life equal rights,
equal powers, equal burdens, equal
privileges and equal protection to all
men by law under the Government.
Ho said that he bad examined with
ciro tbo platform of principles enunci
ated by tho Democratic party at Cin
cinnati and found nothini therein to
contravene them. Indeed, they were
more distinctly set forth therein than
in tho platform of tbe Chicago Conven
tion. IS either of them wont so far as
ho could desire, in spcciQo declaration
of tho right of every man to vote in
the election of kia rulers, and to be
represented in his Government simply
because he ia a man ; but In this re
gard oven the platform of the Cincin
nati Uonvontion was tbo more specino.
General Butler continued :
1 unhesitatingly doclaro that at tbe
closo ot tho war and during tho period
of reconstruction I was ono of those
bo believed stringent incisures nco-
esHiiry lor the protection of the nowly
enfranchised colored alliens in tho
South. I waa of this opinion in 187(i,
four years ago, and fought the Presi
dential campaign of that year upon
that issua only. I was in earnest.
1 desired laws to be passed that should
protect ovory man evorywhoro in his
rights as a voter and citizen. But tbe
flint act, as wo bavo seen, of Mr Hayos,
acquiesced in by his party, waa to
abandon all possible claim of right of
ntcrterence in the nouth in bohall ol
tho negro to remove a low troops
that were there, 11 any werenoces.inry,
and take pains to turn over tho Gov
ernments ol Louisiana and South Car-
olina to tbo Democratic party, de
stroying the Governments elected by
Republican votes there, which, if they
wero not duly and logally elected,
then Mr. 11 lives himself was not duly
and legally elected. Tbe assertion of
ono fact must bo tho assertion of the
other. The assertion of tillo to his
office must bo the assertion of title to
the Republican Ktulo Government of
Louisiana. 1 ho denial ol the election
of Governor Packard to office was the
denial ot tho election to office of Gov.
Haves. Indeed, Packard bad somo
ball a scoro thousands more of a ma
jority than Hayes did.
jSothing has been done, nay, nothing
has been attempted to bo done to allord
protection to tho negro in tho South,
or indeed anybody else thera. Indued,
these ritates in the Mouth were put In
condition so that nothing could bo done
by tbo redcrul Government. IN ay,
ail, both while and black Republicans,
have had no recognition at the hands
ol tbo administration except tho low
men who wero ongaged in tho falso
and fraudulent counting of electoral
volos in tho several Slates. In fact
Mr. Hayes, after his oxperienco with
them, would not admit there woro
enough Republicans honest enough to
take the census, and bis party now aro
finding fault with entimarmtiona mada
by bis appointocs. Xbose lacts aro too
notorious for comment even, much less
W. have not beard of any oppres

Why? Because we were askinir him
to then YOto find sustain the Republi
can party. But whilo wo were asking
him to do that we wero not Uclending
him in so doing. That raised antago
nism between him and the white peo
ple of tho South, and that antagonism
waa accompanied with all mo bad re
sults that arise from suck antagonisms
between Ignorant men who are unre
strained by law. But now, in my own
judgment, the condition of things has
changed. Late political ovonta in v ir
ginia show that when the power de
parted from tbo Kepublican party
there Uie two parties in tbe Slato di
vided upon other quostiona and the
negro enjoys thoro today as much
freedom in voting and aa much free

Undor Republican ruloour commerce

ing by steam. Republican administra
tion haa given up our trade witb South
America. Tbe American flag is bardly
seen on tbo ocoan. Tho port of Boston
has not sufficient foreign commerco to

forco. Ronton Ib losing Its importance

fubliean legislation and administration.

And scarcely more marine risks than
enough to pay its office rent. All
thoso facts the morchanls of Boston
who sit around me know. And yot it
is proposed that tbey shall still permit
Republican administration to go on
under which this destruction of its in
terests is boing accomplished. When
tho war closed nearly every ono of our
seaport towns had fleets of fishermen.
All those havo passed away, savo in
one. And why ' Under Republican
administration wo bavo been negotia
ted out of the rights of all our fisheries
in tho Northern seas. Claiming to be
tho party of protection, the Republican
party havo allowed tho fish ot the Ca
nadian provincoa to come In froo ot
duty, tbo du'.ioa on which would bavo
been moro than the value of the entire
catch of our fiahormen in Canada
wators, ovon after tho fish wore caught
and prepared for mai kot, to Bay noth
ing about their valuo when swimming
in tho sea. And at tho same time a
Republican administration has taxed
tho country more than five millions
and a bull' in gold that tho Canadian
fishermen might bavo this privilege of
froo market against our fishermen for
Tho Republican party claims that
they desire a tariff for protection. The
Democratic party insists, as it always
has itiBistod, upon a tariff for rovonue.
I sco no difTcronco between these two
claims. A tariff for revenuo must al
ways work incidental protection. No
tariff will evor bo devised in this coun
try hereafter for any other purpose
than for raising a revenuo. There can be
no fear of any diminution of the rev
enue raised by the tariff. Incidental
protection ol our products will bo a
nocessity if tho Democratic party have
tho power. Tbe interest on the public
debt, and the expenses ot the Govern
ment, must no paid trom rovonuo, either
internal or tarilf: if the Doruoorulic
party should cut down tbo revenue
trom tho tariff, it would require moro
revenue from internal sources to wit,
whinky and tobacco, to which their
several States would never assont.
General Butler next touched upon
the abuses which bave crept into tbe
Republican party through a long series
of years in power. Has tho Republi
can Convention, he asked, given us lor
itscandidato ono who can correot those
abuses ' Up reviewed the Credit Mobi-
lier business and the investigation of
the committee and said :
I boliovo most of the gonliomon of
thatCommittoe now sav that thoro was
nothing to impeach tbo integrity of
the nominco ot tbe Kopublican party
in receiving tiiat stock. I agree with
them. I do not think there was any
harm, and nevor did think there waa
any barm in anybody's receiving the
stock from Mr. Ames, undor the cir
cumstances. I took that ground be
fore tbe Uouso in 1873, I bavo aeon
no occasion to alter my opinion. All
tho members frankly testified before
the Committee that thoy had received
no consuro from the Committee or from
the country. But that is not tho point
of my objection, whicb I am trying to
mako plain. Having taken the money
as a dividend for eava tho proverb ;
"It is no worse to eat the devil than to
drink bis broth" my ideal of a Presi
dent would not bave denied it. Tho
caso is not without parallel in history
of mon not able to withstand tho pres
sure of public opinion. Potor when be
got amongst thesorvants and retainers
of tba High Priests, denied his Master
tbrco times over, and cursed and sworo
to it until tbo cock crow shame on bim,
and then he wont out and wopt bit
terly. But tbon I should not bave
voted lor Peter as a President, to
aland up in a crisis. Should have pre
tcrrod ono of tho other deciploe even
the doubting Thomas, who stood by
hia Master alter bo was convinced.
What surety have 1 if I. support
Garfield whon tbia cry of tho stalwart
wing of his party that the negro must
ho protected, now sn loud raised, is
hushed alter tho election and the ovor
rightoous nowspapera of the party in
sist, as thoy beforo. have insisted, that
nothing shall be done by his adminis
tration for tho protection of tbe negro,
that their President will havo courage
to stand up against that clamor and
do what is now claimed to bo right
and bo protoet the negro? Indood I
much fear that he will not stand up to
this issuo of the campaign upon which
he is to bo elected at all in any event,
for I find that in tbo Houso of Repre
sentatives ho made a declaration upon
Ihisquestion, taking precisely the same
position which 1 tako today. These
aro hia words: "Tho mini who at
tempted to get up a political excite
ment in this country on the old sec
tional issues will find himself without
a party and wtthmt enppnpt." iiw
tb. advance leaders of bis party, see
ing the nccossity of a war cry, have
made tho sectional issue that of the
campaign, diroctlv in contravention ot
their candidate's words, .If thoir nomi
nco was convinced in his mind; if ho
uttorcd tbia declaration aa the result.
of bis deliberate judgment ; if he will
give up that judgment now for the
sake of an election, what surety bave
1 that bo won t return to it again alter
the prossuro is relieved from him and
bo is elected? He, as wollasHayce,
may change on this question, I can
not do it ao readily. Ia tbia man a

now scorns probable that tho Vera
Crux must bave gone down between
ort Urango, which is at the mouth
of Mosquito Inlet, and Cape Canaveral,
islam trom St. Augustine about 11D
miles. Tbo cyclone which caught bor
camo from about a northeasterly di
rection, and swept across tho Florida
Straits and tho stuto of Floridu with
fury nevor beforo known even in I his
latitude of violent storms. Tbo morn-
lit of Saturday, August 28th, broke
with signs ot severe upproaching dis
turbance. At noon tho morcury in
tbo barometer wus fulling rapidly, and
that evening tbo cyclone was upon tho
ooast. All that night tho torn nest
bowled frightfully und rolled up im
mense breakers whicb pounded the
bore with dcalening roar. At day-
ight on Sunduy morning tho gale had
not spont its fury, and tremendous seas
wero sweeping over the roefs and far
inland. Tbe cyclone left in its track
across the country uprooted trues, dis
mantled dwellings and destroyed crops.
Tho Vera Cruz waa about thirty miles
off Bhore when the cyclone burst upon
cr Saturday evening. Iho uoavy
seas which she shipped made tbelr
ay into tho engine room. Tho tiros
wore extinguished. It became im
possible to keep nor under control, and
preparations were mado to abandon
cr. Soveral ol tbe boats woro launched,
filled witb passengers and members of
the crow, and were dashed to pieces
beforo thoy reached the water. V bile
the remaining passengers and crew
lung to the ship, paralyzed with tear,
the vessol suddenly broke in two and
went dbwn, carry them with her.
How tho soven men escaped to tell the
story is almost a miracle.
A TIIP.lI.LINa NARRATIVE.
Tbo account given by Mason Tulbot,
one ot tho seven, and a seaman, is in
tensely interesting: "Wo woro," be
said, "about thirty miles from the coast
when the great seas began to pile over
tho ship and fill tbe bold. We wer.
ut to work at tbe pumps, but as last
as wo mado a little headway anothor
sea caught us, and tho wutor gradually
gained bo lust tbut pumping became
useless. The water poured into the
engine room, and, work ae hard as they
could, the firemen could not koop up

was impossible to keep up steam, and
then tbo danger really began. The
vessel's head oould not bo kept to the
wind, and finally a heavy drag was
rigged forward and thrown over the
side Tbia helped matters a little, and,
although wo wore tossing liko an egg
shell, now on top of a mountain wave,
tho next instant down in tbe trough
of tho sea, with tbo mountain breaking
ovor us, wo had hopes of weathering
the gale, lno passengors and many
of the crow seemed to be panic strick
en, and, having provided themselves
itn lile-prosorvers, wore only waiting
for tho first favorable moment to
abandon tbe vessel. Tbo lite-boats
wore cut looso and swung out upon
thoir davits ready lor instant service.
Life-preservers were distributed to
such as were unprovided, and every
body prayed tor the morning light
W ben day broko tbo condition ol atlttirs
was no better. It brought moro cool
ness bowover, to tbo officers and crow.
11 was detcrminod to abandon tbe
ship, as tho wator had gained so rapidly
in tbo hold during th. night tbut it was
evident she could not long remain
afloat. Ono of theso boats was swung
ovor the sido and manned with a crew.
Tbon tho passengers tumbled into bor
as best they could. When she was
tilled the signal to let go was given.
Tho boat went down with a run, but
before she bad cono ten feet thosido of
tbo ship coming up with a roll struck
t, and thoso who wero not crushed to
death outright wero dropped, ball
stunned, into tho sea, where they were
drowned before our eyes.
A PITIFUL BKIUT.
"Il was a pitiful sight to see them
struggling almost within our grasp,
and then disappear one aftor another
beneath tb. waters. Another boat
was got ready, and was let off iu tho
same manner. It, too was ground to
splinters against tho ship's sido, and
us occupants met Willi the same into
aa thoso in the first boat. Meantime
tho aeamer waa found to be slowly
settling. Every sea shook bet from
end to nd, and if she bad not been as
stiff and strong as she was, she must
havo been wrenchod to pieces during
tho night. Thoso who now remained
aboard were so completely unnerved
by tho horriblo sight which thoy fiad
Been, and the shrieks of tho drowning,
that thoy refunod locnterlhe boats. The
Captain and somo of tho officers were
in one of tho boats. It was about 5:30
o'clock whon they went over the side.
Such a acone I nover witnessed as that
now presented. Mon and women wore
in tho cabin praying and shrieking
and screaming. All ot a sudden there
waa a snapping sound as of many
timbers giving way, and a shook that
waa felt all ovor the vessol. Sh. had
broken completely in two. Sho gave
one or two plunges, the water rushed
in through the wldo open seams ana
cracks, and thonoxt mtnuto tho Vera
Crus wont down, carrying all on board.
SINKS WITH ALL ON BOARD.
"I was clinging to the dock and wai
suckod down with tho vossal. I came
to tho surface, breathloss and choking
ilh salt water I had swallowod.
Then one person and another came to
the top, grasping wildly for something
to support them. The water was
dotted witb beads and filled with
heavy pieces of wreck. Somo of them
wore struck by this stuff, and ao much
stunned that that thoy wont down
attain, nevor to oome up. I saw one
or two women drowned in thia way,
I got hold of a piece of tbo wreck, but
the sea tor. it away from me, and thon
tossed it back again, as if to tantalize
me. Whon 1 first camo to tho surface,
tbe water around me was thick
with human beings. Home of them
caught ms, and 1 had to div. to get
rid of their grip. 1 aid this in several
casos. I bad to do th. same thing to
avoid pieces of wreck that had bolls
sticking out ot thorn. Whoovor was
struck by ono of theso bolU was sure
to be ao maimed as to become helpless.
I was tossed up and down all that day
until Into in tbo allornoon. uccasion
ally, as 1 rose to the crest of some
wave. I could so. a human being on
th. crest ol another ono. Then 1 was
down in th. hollow again dodging
timbers. Many lime I was driven
down two or throe fathoms under the
wator, and If 1 waa lucky enough to
grasp a timber when I camo to it, il
was almost sure to be snatched away
fiom me th. next moment. I saw a
mothor and her daughter lightly clasp
ed togother. They rodo pest me on a
wavo and disappeared. Their bodies
came ashore, still bound in the samo
embrace. All that Sunday night 1 was
tossed about, and finally, at 7:3tlo'clock,
Monday moruing, alter having been
in the water twenty-six hours, 1 was
hurled up on the beach. 1 lay there
exhausted for a long time. Tbe other
six came ashore on the sume beach,
although at long distances apart. Tho
last 1 saw of Gen, Torbert alivo b.
waa' on tbo aftor- part of the vessel
with Mr. Owen. He waa breathing,
I was told, when ba was cast ashore.
A boy dragged bim up as far as he
could on tb. beach, and then ran fur
help. When he came back with assist
ance Gen. Torbort was dead. His dead
body was rouioved to tho little village
of Port Orange, which is at tho en
trance to the Mosquito Inlet. There
I saw it. His hosd was covered witb
bruises, showing that ho must bavo
boon struck several times by tho pieces
of tho wrock. His body was buried at
Day tons." Talbot added that all bis
companions wero more or less bruised
by tho drifting debris of tho wreck.
Ono of them strippod off Jiis clothing,
und, in a naked state, swam until ho
was cast up on the beach. Ho had no
life-preserver, and was tho first to
coma ashore. At Matanzas, sovonteen
miles south of St. AuguBtine, tho body
ot a young man, wearing nothing but
shirt and drawers, was found. A few
miles further south the bodies of a man
between fifty and sixty years of ago,
and elderly lady, a girl and a child
were washed ashore.
A. k. owen's statement.
Mr. A. K. Owen is a civil engineer
of considerable note, a native and resi
dent of Chester, Pa., und has boon
well known at Washington for six or
eight years as the enthusiastic advo
cato of a Pacific rnilroad which should
traverso tho middle region of Texas
and the Mexican Slates of Dursngo
and Sinaloa, terminating in tho Gulf
of California at the almost unknown
and uninhabited port of Totolovampo.
Ho published several pamphlets, with
mans and plans of this route, and suc
ceeded in interesting a number of in
fluential personsat aslunglon,though
his routo was generally objected to
as passing through an almost desert
region of countiy. Ho has mado re
peated visits to Mexico, where bo was
at ono time connocted with a project
for establishing improved drainage in
tho citv of Mexico. Ho received en
couragement Irom tho government of
President Diaz, and a lew months ago
mado a personal exploration of the
port of Totolovampo and tho adjacent
region, which he found entirely favor
able to bis railroad project. In viow
of these facts, which tend to show that
he is a man of exact mind, his state
ment concerning tho condition of tho
ship during and previous to tho storm
are full of interest. Tho stevedore
work, it appears, was not well done,
and even beforo tbe gulo grow furious
tho ship had a decided list. Jlr. uwon
says: "At 1 o'clock P. M., Saturday,
tho Captain was beard to remark to
Mr. Harris, his first officer, 'I have
iust noticed that the barometer is full
ing iapidly. Wo are going to bavo a
hurricane. OrdorB were then given
to cut op and Ihrow the car overboard,
and also the barrels of oil, casos of
acid and casos of vegetables on deck
The real blast of tho cyclone struck ub
on the port bow at about twenty-five
minutes to two V. jn., saiuruay, anu
listed the ship almost on hor beam ends.
From thistimo it bocame next to im
possible to walk about without cling
ing to chairs tables and other station
ary furniture of tho cabin, and aa all
moveable articloa in the saloon wero
aulcklv thrown from port tostorboard
walking waa exceedingly uangerous.
Tbe wind waa at thia timo northeast,
and tho vessel wus atooring south by
east. During tho ovoning three sky
lights in the main ealoon were carried
away and the waves pourod consider
able water Into tho saloon and stuto-
rooms, setting all adrift. By midnight
tho passengors were genorally sitting
upon or Ivinir upon the floor of the
ealoon, conversing with and assisting
each other, yet good choor was tho
rulo, and many woro tno exchanges oi
wit and humor between them all. Tbo
servants, as they passod around them,
added to the good feeling. Major Gen
eral Torbert, United Stales army, had
been washed out ol his Btatoroom, sso.

early on Saturday ovoning. Ho thon

"Ho had boen thrown against a la-
blo in tho afternoon and bad cut bis
rieiit cheek, which troublod him con
siderably, aa it bled freely, but ho was
in bis best and kindest numor, speaa
ing a cheering word hero, assisting a
man there and attending to the women

from tho top and sides. At 1 o'clock
P. II.. the enein. room was ary. j no
drag was put on, but it rovorsod and
was useless, it was not gotten reaiiy
until this time, and waa too email for
sorvico, ovon if in proper order. At 2
M. the ship took a heavy sea and
the waters put th. fires out, imme
diately stopping tb. engines. Tbo
donkey engine then started, and was
going when the ship sank. The pur
ser came hurriedly below, calling tor
Gon. Torbert, and said that th. Cap
tain had sent bim to toll tbe passen
gers to oome and assist tb. crew or the
vessol would go down. We imme
diately got up. I went to to the deck
and to the floor of tho engino room,
whore I assislod to pass the buckets
for an hour. Captain Van Sice was in
line near tho top passing wator while
1 was there, it was ot no uso. i no
sea was continually breaking over the
vossel and oominguown in large quanti
ties botwecn docka. The donkey en
gine was working, but not to any
purpose. Alter Ibis 1 went to mess-
loon and told Gen. Torbert that we
woro iroini to pieces and fast filling,
and nothing remained but for ua to
got life-preservers npon me women.
Gen. Torbert s lac Dun. mm so muen
that that b. did not go to pass buckets
Thoro was no such thing asoxcitcmont
on board even lb. children were
quiet and reasonable Kach assisted
tho other in arranging lile-proscrvers,
and Gon. Torbert was laughing and
joking with all while ho assisted thorn.
I ho storm at tnis urn. waa most lorriuc.
Such waves, wind and rain can nevor
be describod. Tb. ship listed to bor
beam ends at every wavo, ana it was
just possible to crawl from one place
to th. otbor. Th. storm was so thick
that w. could not see 100 yards ahead,
and the rour of wind and beating of
tbo ruin was liko tho rattle of musketry.
Gon. Torbert and myself were lying iu
my borth talking and quietly awaiting
tbe worst, when, at twelvo minutes
past 4 A. M., a sea broke into the en
gine room and through tbo saloon,
making a crash liko a battery of ar
tillery and striking terror tor an in
stunt into every one, dashing solism
passengers, Inblcs, doors ami the h'Or-o

AN ABdUMENT ABOUT LIFE.
"Tho General came to me imme
diately aftor this with Master Wul
lengo, about nino years old, and said
'Romeo, you and 1 must tuko this little
boy and car. for him between as.' I
allowed that bo bad but fifteen minutes
to live, and argued that it would be
mercy to let tho little fellow go down
with tho ship, but the General kindly
insisted, and said, '1 cannot leave this
little fellow behind ; you and 1 muBt
sure him. Tuko bim until I como
back.' The next minute the sea came
into the saloon more terrifically than
over, filling it waist deep in water and
smashing tbe most ot tho port side.
Tho little lellow and myself were roll
ed over among thechairs and tublcs and
I lost bim, but be was picked up and
brought to bis father. 1 called to
General Torbert to como to tbo dock
with me. Ho said, 'I will go aft and
meet you above.' 1 never saw General
Torbert again alivo. Tho passengers
now crowded into the social ball,
which was at tbo top of tho saloon
steps. Hero they said furewoli to
each other. Wo adjusted their life
preservers and extended sympathy
one to the other. Merer before, por
hsps, was there a sot of passengers ao
quiet and unexcitcd under circum
stances so appalling. Mr. Alexander
Walleugo brought hia littlo boy to me
and said. 'Mr. Owen, 1 will givo you
$1,000 in irold if you will take my son
and got bim to land.' 1 suid no, 1 did
not expect to livo fivo minutes aftor
the ship went down. 1 told him it
would be a mercy lor himself and bis
son to go down as quick as possible.
1 told bun 1 could see nothing to hope
for in a storm liko tins. I said, 'Lot
us look at it as if our characters on tho
world's stago was about ended.'
A (IIKl'8 request.
Miss Sadie Fuy asked mo in bur
sweetest manner to tuko euro of her,
but I said to bcr and to others that
there was nothing to bo dono but to
keep theship until wo wore swept from
her, und thon to cling to tho fragments
as long as possible, and this plan was
carried out by ovory passenger.- Tbo
Captain was seen just beforo the sea
smashed in the port side of the upper
decks, at twolvo minutes past 4 P. M.,
but whotberbegot cxcitodand lumped
overboard, or was swept away, is not
known to any ot us. Mr. Harris, first
officer, tbe second muto, and ono or
two more of the crew took to tho slur
board woro killed before tbe boat
could be got freo. Mr. Millor and his
engineers stood by th. ship till she
sank. Tbo uaancrmaBtor, tviuiam
O'Noal, and a Bailor, name unknown,
stood at tbe whool until slio sank. 1 h
Captain never camo near tbe passen
gers during the storm, nor did he send
to inquire into their condition, and it
may be sincerely hoped that no other
paBSongers may De lell to ao thought
lessly and indifferent a man. It was
6 o'clock A. M. that tho ship went
down, breaking in tbo middlo and fill
ing tho sen with lragmonta ol stores
trungs and merchandise.
A WRECK STREWN BEA.
"To say there wero ten million
pieces of wrecked stores all clashing
togolber five minutes after the ship
went to pioces would be gross exagger
ation, but even witb such a statement
no idea could boconcoivod of the state
of tho case. Men, women, children,
horses, cats and rats mixed in and
wont in, through and ovor this maxs.
The waves were tiltv feet biub. not in
swells and ridges, but in peaks and
sugar loaves. Four peuks, beating
like surf, tore into cuch other. When
wo went up on one it was not to go
down on tho other side, but to be turn
ed over at tho top and tent rolling to
tho opposite one, and so back and
forth. This lasted about two or three
hours, after which tbo wave look a
moro natural charaotcr and camo in
swelling ridges, and wo whirled down
and over them to th. opposite sido.
Gon. Torbert was picked up by Cliuilo!
Smith, ono of the crew, about filteen
minulos after tho ship suhIc. Ho was
then weak and could crawl on tho
tragmenls of tbe wreck only with ns
sistunco. When the Iragmcnt on
which ho was was turned over, a min
ute later, Mr. smith camo up on
another piece, and never saw tho Gen
oral alivo. The wind was so terrific
that when a plank, raft, box or trunk
would roach the top of a wave it was
whirled through the air with a force
terrible to behold. Among the living
and dying I novor passed a person who
was not bleeding Irom somo wound
inflicted by passing fragments, and
half of them wero dead or dying within
fifteen minulos after thoy tnnl in tl
"This was most apalling ; and sad,
indeed was it to see those heroio wom
en struggling against timbers, waves
and late. I passed Mr. Wallengo and
son ten minutes alter the sinking.
They woro about ten yards apart,
clinging to different pioces of the
wreck, and the lillio follow looked as
calm and handsomo as when playing
th. ealoon two days before. His
father was depressed, but ouly for his
son ; no thought of himself entered
his head. Would to God that 1 might
havo done something for them both.
Thus could I tell something aboutoach
passenger, but as I did not know their
names 1 cannot entor into detain, ado
stewardess was jammed In the saloon
among doors and tublos and sank with
tbe ship. She was crying bitterly
and appealed to me for belli, whon the
water poured in upon nor iiko a i lagra.
1 stood by tho mainmast till tho
water rushed in over tbe hurricane
