The - ship Po hatters, Capt. .Ilkfeyers, with

not return with the life , Car. the vessel be
came uneasier,„ad Many unfortunate people
were swept off b -theheavy surf.. About fire
' o'clock: P. M. On immense wave washed fully
pe l s
one Infrared -ona ovekboard, who 'were
carried away do
i -n the beach by -.the . under
tow. Some of them- Came ashore and were,
picked up lifelessiby Mr. Jennings, *lto search

but all had .breathed I tfieii last, before thek
reached the beach ' awfully mangled by the.
force of the wa ispushia i g them; against -the_
hull of the vessel and throwing them withvi
olent force .upon the beech. . ' . • ~
At this time apt.,ltfeyers,. who Was on the
deck of the Powiattan all this while, called
out in-a loud vofee tolMr. Jennings, entreat-.
lug him•to , try and save ,some of those

ftied that all those who came . ashore were
dead, and that it, was no nviooking for them
.as they. were all.killed , before they got out of

About seven o clock, the ships masts went
by the board, : nn i ahnest immediately after
wards the hull bursted; in t, . and every soul
on board was laluncheicl into eternity. The
;sea - preSented a bliek mass of human heads
and floating pieces of the wreck, but in a few
• moments all. had sunk Ito rise alive- - no more.
The beach was strewn with the dead bodies
of women and children, pieces of . .the wreck,
--,the baggage. of -the passengers and empty
easkt. Nothing remained to - mark the spot
where :the ill-fate ship went ashore, except
surging waves beatinT, :upon a fragment of the°
hull which lay upon lite, beach. .
The crying of the drowning 'men and _the
- shrieking of the women and • children was
hushed—all lay n the'deep, numbered
,: : -...the . 4l4d,'while the wind wailed loud Vnd
_More horroi to the
4144 catastrophe. All had sunk--captain
_ otficers,:crew - and passengers—of two hundred
fifty persons not a ;Soul . was'left to tell the
tale. •No aid 'came from the .Goverputerit
Ilousethat night, and Oaptain jennings was
compelled to remain there by .himself; a lone
' Ty watcher of tlui dead]
On Monday morning four men arrived fro 4 c
the station-hous,: but', their help came t
late. The stormi it'seems, was so severe r that .
while on their ay -back to the wreck on
Sunday, with ihe life-car and mortar, -two of .
* them fell ,down exhauste4, and the whole. pair
ty were obliged' 4o return nearly, frozen .. to
.death. This party of Men, utujer command
of Capt . Jennings, set immediately about find
- ing and gathering together those bodies that
had been washed ashore. In the short space
of an hour nearlY twenty women and.children
• were . fOOKl, dim. st naked, scattered along the
beach, some tem dreadfully bruised - and
' One Man was found' about fifty yards from'
the beach, upon the sand hills, with a child
_in his arins;' and from his condition it is sup
posed that he alOne, of, all on beard, reached
shore alive, and crawling out of reach of
the waves, in order to 'pave his own life, and
that of the infant in his arms, fell down ex
hausted on the sand, and was frozen to death
during the night. The child was firmly lioek
ed in, his arms, Elite dead, and. appeared as if
' it had also flied on the shore from exposure.
The whole of this day was spent in search
ing for the bodi ...5 of the _unfortunate people.
. But one man w i found among the number,
all the rest were women and children. ' They
appeared to haVe been din Bx'cellent health,
with rosy cheeks and 'smiling faces, looking
as if they were tasleeP rather than dead.—
They were all laid side by sidy until ti boat
could be got to carry them to the shore.
On Tuesday twenty-two bodies were re
moved from the beach to the village of liana
hawkin. These!, 'consisted of one man and
twenty-one chilpren all apparently, by their
features, appearing4ohe Germans, the women
who had any clothes on being dremed in coarse
materials, with Iheavy shoes, some 'of them
wooden ones. AU tirie shoes,
to an out-house of Squire PeciwOrtles, where
they remained until cons .could be madefor
them. This mtdanchol ' task _of makingre.-
. ceptacles for the dead ecupied the attention
of the men residing in _the village, while the
women were busily einPloyed in-washing. the
bodies and lappg them out, preparatory to
their being placed in the coffins. Too much
,A praise cannot be awarded to the inhabitants
of Manahawkiii for theii zeal and industry in
giving a deceutt burial, to the dead. ' •
Our reporter 'visited the Dead House, where
lay in tiers, one above the other, Women and
children, presenting a Shocking and ptinful
~i = spectacle. The whole evening was spent in
waking . coffins and shrouds; and it was note
until midnight that the kind-hearted, people desisted in their labors, which were trying in
the extreme. , 1 • , , • -- •
All along the shore for ten miles were scat:
tered the remnants of the cliWs and trunks
of the passengers, 'many - of , them - having
names inscribed !on the lids and sidea. Feat„h
-e ,cl!eds, cooking utensils, empty errata and
pieces ef the'vetsel were to be seen on, every

to - the ; honpr o r the Democratic party 'we
may say, it: has .rarely been known to employ
