NARRATIVES OF THE SURVIVORS.
MR. STEPHEN CALDWELL’S STATE
MENT.
Yesterday, Mr. Stephen Caldwell, of Pliil
lipsport, Sullivan county, Now York, one of
tho forty-nine saved, after the wreck of the
Central Jmerica , by the Norwegian barque
Ellen,' called upon us. Ho permits us to give,
in his own words, a personal narrative of his
own adventure and experience. In the con
versation wo had with him, ho spoko vory
•warmly. In praise of Captain Herndon, jvko,.
-ho jfnyg/*Rtooil Urtho ship to tfro feat, and, it
is to bo feared, was drowned. The statement
£s as follows;
•Wo loft Havana on the Bth. Out about twenty hours
before got into tho breeze. Tho stoamerdid her
duty well, and rode through tho storm very stoutly.
Tho bolief among tho crow was that the euginoor
had let the steam go down, so that, at last, the
vessel got into the trough of tho sea, and probably
took in water—-first by ita pouring in on the deck,
and thon by a general straining of her timbers which
admitted it frooly in. The water was several foot
in the hold, before it was generally known to be
so by tho passengers. This was on Friday
afternoon, September 11th. Immediately tho pas*
sengors and orow organized themselves to pump
out the water. Tho vessel, with a light run of
steam, was put before the wind, but tho watersooo
niado it; impossible to work tho engines, getting
iutotfio fornaoes, so that steam could not bo got
up. Wo worked from Friday afternoon till she
went down, at eight on Saturday night, at tho
pumps, and bailing out tho water in every way,
but with little effect. The pumps were so umoh
out of ordor that they wero scarcely of any uso
We saw that the ship was about sinking, and as
many of us os could seised lifo-presorvers, of whloh
a large number was on board—enough to give one
to every person there, but tho greater numbor
wore below, and we oould not get at them. Those
life-preservers wero each capable of floating a man.
About threo minutes' before tho vessel lurched
down, stern foromost, I was swopt off the deok by a
heavy sea, but as I was going down, I was caught
at by throe or four men who wore in tho water, who
pulled of my lifo-preservor in tho struggle. I rose
up, and being a good swimmer, kept afloat. When
the vessel wont down, I just laid under her bows—
her bowsprit hit mo on the shoulder, and I should
have been oarried down, but sho wont a little aft
and cloared mo. A fearful noise followed her going
down. It continued for some ten minutes. Then
all was still. Every ono on. board know slio was
bound to go down immediately. Fifteen or sixteen
locked themselves up in thd fitato rooms, saying
they would rather die there than go down strug
gling With death iu.the waters. Five or six wore
sick in thoir births, and porisbod that way.
I was fortunate enough to 'solzo a piooe of board
about throe feet long and fourteen inches wide, and
this, with tho aid of swimming, kopt me afloat. In
the heavy sea, I was threo or four times separated
from this board, but recovered it each time. I re
mained nine hours in the water. £ saw many
floating around me—some of thorn dead, tho re
sult of oold, fatigue, and hunger, for there was
soarcely time to eat anything during tho thirty
six hours wo wore pumping. Towards!morning I
felt very’cold indood, from tho watei; dashing over
me and around mo, but used every effort not to
yield. • -
About six o’clock on tho morning of Monday,
the 13th, I swam up the Norwegian barque Ellen,
which lay to tho windward of us. I had soon hor
an hour before. X was taken on board, and treated
vory kindly; thoy gavo us dry clothes, food, and
i did every thiug thoy coyld to holp us. When 1
’ was washed over-board, T had no coat on. After
| the vessoi went down, and I had got out of tho
! crowds I palled - off my boots in the water, (and a
; difihmlt thing it was,) by standing in tho water,
t whioh I could do, as I swim well.
Tho 'Ellen Bavcd forty-eight, bosidos mysolf.
’ These sho picked up. Hor own rigging was much
torn. She brought us into Norfolk.
I had about mo, in coin and dust, about twenty
pounds weight of geld It was in a bolt buckled
around me, bo that I could loose it and throw it
off in a moment, if I found it likely to boar
down.
I wont from Norfolk to Baltimore and thence to
Philadelphia, where I arrived atmldnight on Sun
day (yostordoy) ovoning, I shall proceed to Now
York to-morrow or noxt day.
I iolong to Philltpaport, SulHvtra county, State
of Now York, and hail boon two years and a quar
ter in California, wljero I worked as a minor, and
mot with success.
With tho exception of boing a little lore and
stiff for a day or two, I {felt no harm from what I
have undergone. Many of tho rest wore much tai
lored and bruised in tho water by being kuoekod
about against Bparß, broken timbor, and such like.
I lost my luggage and many articles of valuo.
I gratefully and humbly acknowledge my deep
obligation to Providence for having.brought me
gftfo out of these great perils under which so many
others sunk. Stkpiiek Caldwell.

[From the New York Herald of Yesterday ]
The steamship Empiro City, Captain Jno. Mo
Gowan. arrived at Now York on Sunday morning,
With ninety-two of the survivors of tho ill-fatod
Central Amorioa.
The Empire Oily, Capt. Jno. MoGowan, loft her
wharf at Norfolk, Va., at 10} A. M. on thoiBth,
for this port;. < She bod bcon victualled and coaled
during tbo previous two days for a thorough oruieo
In search of the missing steamer Central America,!
of whose ultimato safety, howevor, none on board
felt any misgivings.
Capt. McUowan got his ship undor why, steamed
down tho burbor, and when near tho light ship
spoke tho barque with hor quota of tho saved, lluil
iug her ho proffered [a passage to all who chose
to accept. The majority were taken on board, and
with a parting round of three hearty cheers for
their preservers, we proceeded on our voyago, hop
ing to fall in with the brig and rolieve tho women
and children. A vessel was descried ahead In tow
of a propeller within three miles tff Gape Jiwiiy*

hound in, and immediately speculation was mo as
to whether she might or might not turn out to be
the vo3Sol wo sought; glnssos wore levelled at hor
by anxious groups gathered forward, and as we
rapidly closed together, certainty succeeded sur-,
mise, and to tno joy of all she proved to be tho
brig Marine, in tow of the City of Norfolk, pro
peller, her low and confined decks swarming with
wretched-looking objoots. many of them women
and children, wringing their hands, and weeping,
and laughing, by turns, hystorioally.
Our boats were speodily lowered, and Captain
McGowan in tho first boarded die brig in
carossod, embraced, and indcod half strangled by
tho poor women, who throw themselves upon aim as
ho reached tho deok. i •
As boat load after boat load bad roaohed .the
ship’s side and ladder, eaoh vied with tho other in
assisting them to our decks, and in a short timo
tho greater portion wore comfortably quartered in
the cabin. To tho bystaudora, tho reoogmuon and
greotieg between the two parties—mother claiming
son and husband wife; tho eager panning of eaoh
faco in agonizing fear and expectation; tho joy
or grief manifested as recognition or disappointment
awaited tho gazor—was touching in tho extreme,
straining the heart-strings and moistening thooyca
of many hitherto unused to such manifestation.^
A portion remained on board the brig, P r ®“’/£| n §
to go up to Norfolk, and when all who wished had
been taken on board, tho Empire City again got
under way for Now York with hor freight of un
fortunates. , ,
NinetV-jix, in all, wore reported to have been
saved by tho brig, exclusive of thocoloredatew*™*;
css, who died from oxhaustion after, having hupp
taken from tho wreck. ‘ , <
All speak In the highest terms,of the attention,
paid them and tho humanity displayed by the offi
cers and crews of both brig and barque. The for
mer, with the women , was. about to serve out her
last day's allowance, of water, and had not an
opportune supply of provisions been received from
a passing vessel, they must have beon driven to
great straits with hunger as well as thirst, . •
The barque Ellen had‘ previously had All nor
boats stove in the galo. and every individual of
those saved by her wero drawn on board by lines
thrown thorn as she sailed through the drifting
masses of drowning men—hereaptain handling his
vossol ns none but a sailor could—going ahead,
getting sternway on hor, and drifting to leeward
us the cries about him from those whom he coujd
not see through tbodarkhcs3 of the night, dictated.'
Their csoopo is unequalled in tho annals of marine
disaster and rolief. ■
Tho officers of tho Empire City, grieving for tho
loss of their brother officers, have yet a feeling of
pride and satisfaction in knowing that thoy died
at their posts, striving to save lifo to tho last; and
point to the foot that oil tho women and ohildron
were saved (not an infunt lodt) as an instance of
self-devotion, coolness, and manliness, seldom ox
colled if equalled.
Should it ploaso Providenco hereafter to plnco
them in tho same strait, thoy wish no nobler
euloglum or bettor epitaph.

STATEMENT OF JOS. 51. BASSFORD.
Mr. Josoph M. Bassford, of Boniola, California,
one of the resoued passengers of tho Central Ameri
ca, gives tho following statement:
Shortly after the steamer left Havana, the storm
commenced, and raged with unabated violence tijl
tho ship went down. On dook Friday morning,
about sevon o’olock, whon the onginos suddenly
stoppod. Anxious to learn what the difficulty was,
I went to tho engine room. The momont I ar
rived there the first onginoof, Ashby, came run
ning Into the room with nothing on but his shirt,
having hurried from his berth without dressing.
An Instant afterwards Captain Horndon camo to
the room also,'having been roused from his berth
by tho sudden stopping of the ougincs As soon as
tuo captain saw Mr. ABhbyho said nothing, but
went directly away. Mr. Ashby made an inquiry
or two as to tho difficulty, and retreated to his pri
vate room to dress himself, v aftor whioh ho re
turned.
LOSS OP IDE BTEAHER IMPUTED TO ABIIBY.
I am satisfied, from what I afterwards learned,
that had Ashby immediately went to work in en
deavoring to, remedy tho difficulty with tho en
gines, ho might h&vo got them to workl again,
and saved the vcssol, ns every womont after tho
stoppage of tho engines was of great importance.
After Ashby returned ho called together tho engi
neers and firemen, and consulted as to what should
be dono. A pipe had broken and a groat deal of
steam was escaping, which was all the difficulty
visible to mo Efforts wero made to set the en
gines going, but this proved ineffcotuul. I inquir
ed ofono of tho Bremen tho extent of tho trouble,
and was told that the steamer had sprung alonk,
and that water was pouring in quitp. rapidly, and
that it was impossible to pass tbo coal; and, fur
this reason tho engines had stopped. As,yet tho
water had not, touched tho fires m tho furnace*.
It was found, after several hours, that tho wutdr
was coming in at such a rate that it would bo ne
cessary to call in extra aid. Accordingly, two
lines of men wero formed on tho starboard, and
another on tho larboard side of tbo stc&inor, with
buckets, to take out tho water. . This was about
four o’clock in the afternoon. When tho oall for
tho buckets and aid of tho passengers was called
for, thero was some consternation among tho pas
sengers at first; none boliovod, howevor, that there
was any real danger.
At this time tho wind was blowing almost a hur
ricane. X ventured my head above the dook once
or twice, but it soomud na though thero was danger
of the wind blowing it off, so vioiont and terrific
was tho gale. In commotion with tbo buokots,
gangs of men wero arranged with barrels to tako
up water by moans of pulleys. Tho pumps had
boon abandoned beforo this some time. Every
body worked like a good follow, and the wator was
gained on to such an extent that tho engineer was
enabled to got up stoam in tho main boilor of tho
ship, and several revolutions wore mado With the
wheels. The water now gained on tho ship, and
at longth put out tho engine fires. Moantimo ef
forts had boon made all along to got tho donkoy
engines at work, but without any success.
HARD LABOR—SOXtt BINGING.
Tho labor of tho men at tho buckets and bar
rels was very sovero and trying. Everything was
dono to keep up tho spirits. To give impotus aqd
onoouragomont to tho work, a large number sang
while laboring. Tho voices of the workors rose
morrily and powerful above tho din of tho storm
and tho lashing of tho Stoamer’s sidoajby tho wavop.
Tho burden of the song was thostorootypecouplot,
sung with a sailor-iiko melody and vivacity—
Heave 0, Heave 0, stamp and go,
We’ll bo Jolly blather, 0.
For want of keeping up a proper systom of man
agement, howevor, in arranging the mon in watches,
so as to alternate at propor intervals, at tho first
a number of mon, notwithstanding tho stimulus pf
song singing, became so completely tlrod out that
after a tune they had to glvo up work. Some fell
down oxhuusted and fainting in thoir stops.
LADIES PItOPFER ABBIBTANOB AT THE BUCKETS.
At this crisis some of the ladies hehaved most
■generously and nolly—several ofthemvolunteer
tng to take their places at the buckets ; but tho
men, tired os they were, had too muoh gallantry
to allow this. Tho offor of the ladies, however, to
assume a portion of the trying toil gave ronowed
encouragement to tho mon. Mrs. A. J. Boston, a
bride, who, and her husband, wore among tho pas
sengers, and wero on a wedding tour, furnished
the men with a large number of bottles of wine.
The liberal bostowal of tho wine, and the spirit
which prompted its donation, won the admiration
of all. Not only was increased vigor given to tho
men, but it roused them to work still bravely on..
Several of the pMsucgere, whose position and ih-
lolllgenoe, and withal, the trying circumstances in
widen tho ship was pluccd, ought to have restrain
ed from doporting themselves other than properly,
drank excessively of liquors on board tho shin,
probably from their own private store, and made
themselves very noisy nod troublosnrao. I Inow
two of the passengers of high social and political
associations, who refused toworh , but got alarm
ingly drtttU', so much so that their more sober
companions had to put them in their berths. In
that cojiditiou they lay when the steamer sunk.
Tho mon worked at the buckets, endeavoring to
bale tho steamer, from Friday at 4 P. M. till Sa
turday night. Ono groat difficulty in tho progress
was the want of propor and strengthen
ing food. A dry oruokor was about all that could
bo got hold of. What made it still worse was tho
Impossibility of getting water to drink. During
tho night the men had to work ontiioly in tho dark.
Justico compels U to be said that Captuin Herndon,
with all bis nobility aud disinterestedness of char
acter, and notwithstanding his possessing in ahigh
degree most of tho traits, necessary to an efficient
commander, was not equal to tho present trying
em-tegenoy. Ho ran ail over tho 3hip, running
hem and there himself for a blanket, or a hummer,
or trivial things which ho should have sent others
for. Ho was not wanting In manly oourugo, hut ho
deoisivo promptness. Had ho subdivided
inariefe properly, and exorcised the rigidness of
control nooessary to the occasion, I think tno steam
ship might have been kopt afloat longer than she
wis. f»iid posiibly saved.
.At kwoP. M., Saturday, asail was seen from tho
wf£dwerd. Guns were fired and signals of distress
Wfflftd. Fortunately, the vessel saw us and oamo
under our stern, being kept to the windward
tjP.{*y to, but the galo blew hor away throe or four
jMw.to tho Jeoward. The sight of this brig, whioh
p*sVod to bo the brig Marine, gavo iuoreased en
couragement to tho men engaged in bailing tho
fftehmor, and they kept at work lustily aud nobly.
The women and children being gathored nft on the
starboard side of the steamer, the work of getting
them ou board the brig commenced forthwith. Pre
patytloaswere W rule to put the small boatsoverboard.
The -first boat that was lowered was Qt onee stove.
Better luck attended the lowering of the second
boat. The boatswain and three or the crow wore
placed in charge of tho boat, and it was soon filled
with a portion of tho lady passengers and children.
A groat deal of difficulty attended getting thorn
into tho boat daring the heavy sea. Tho third
boat that was lowered was in charge of the quarter
master and three oarsmen; this wn* likewise filled
wlriftwomon and ohildron, and pu3hod off for the
brig Marino. Tho fourth bent that was lowered
mot with tho same fato with tho first boat, and was
knocked to pieces.
MU. ABDBY LEAVES TUB HTEAMER—UIS PROMISES
TO CAPTAIK UETINDON
The fifth and last boat was lot down so ns to roach
tho water and ride in safety. After nil tho re
maining lady passengers, excepting three, had
been taken on hoard. Ashby, tho chief onginoor.
madtf n move to got into tho boat. Captain Horn
don told him not to got In. Upon which Ashby
besought tho captain to plaCo him in charge of tho
boat. Ho promised the captain that ho would
come back with tho boat, and what was mor’o, pre
vail oh tho oaptain of tho Marine to come up with
his vessoi to wfaoro tho steaiuor lay, and got him to
send h’i3 small bonis out. Captain H. said that ho
feared to .trußt him, ns ho was afraid ho would not
oome back. Upon this expression of doubt rela
tive to himself, Ashby said : “ I promise you, capi
ta in, most solemnly, that I will come buck to the
steamin' and siot desert her,” or words to this pur
pose. I hoard tho remark distinctly, and noted
it, as the fact of tho doubt as to tho boat’s return
oaused me to think that possibly tho present would
bo tho last opportunity I would knvo te savo my
iclf; I saw that all tho womon were in, and would
not allow myself any thought of my personal safety
till the safety of the women hmi been looked to.
When Ashby got on board bn drow a knife
—as be saw several on the point of making a jump
for the'lfoat—and declared if any individual jumped
on bosud lio nould tako his life. I had a knife,
100, at my command, and was not to be awed by
ttnjr aweb threat. Jamming that the women RTld
children wero safe, I felt Justified in making
pn effort for my own preservation; hut tho boat
was out locoo, I gavo a jump and lnndod Id tbo
boat. Ibad $2,000 in gold iu a belt, aud was
about to tlo it about me, but with the haste I had
to make to got into the boat, thrust it into my side
ooatpookot. In giving tho jump It was thrown in
*otne way out ’of my pocket into tho water and
lost. Ashby did not carry out his throat as to
doing me any peruonalinjury. Tho boat had got
but a few feet from the stoamerwhen a young man
named Adorns, from Baltimore, dovo head fore
• most from tho steamer and uaino up tho other sido
of thmuiialt boat. Ho put his log overiuto tho
boat, aud got in no quickly and quiotly that only ono
or two of tho3o In the boat noticed it.
Fifteen persons, including Ashby nnd tho oma
mon, were in tho small boat in which I had safely
landed raymlf. The reason why more did not at
tempt to get into tho small boat wns, beoauso thoy
folt Uiemielres safer ou tho steamer. No one he

in danger of sinking, and there bod been but
Boa at tbo thuo, no earthly power could havo pre
vented a mad rush for the small bouts, and so many
crowding Into them that they must hnvo beon in
danger of being sunk. A* it was, it was with the
utmost difficulty and dangor that the small boats
carried their loads from tho steamer to tho brig.
As tho boat in which I was left tho steamer, Captl
Horndwn stood on the bow of tho steamer, with a.
trumpot and spyglass in his bunds. Tho wind had
abated somewhat, and tho passengers on the
steomor knowing this fact woro buoyod up with
tho hopo that tho brig Mutluo would eoon ho able
to come up to whore tho *touiuer lay, and take thorn
safely on Wtd.
Upon our boat loads arriving along?ldo the Ma
rino nnd being taken on hoard, Ashby asked
Captain Firoh Tf ho could not got his brig nearer
, tho Coning America. This, Captain B. said, was
impossible, owing to tbo disabled condition of his
vonol aid the heavy sea. By this timo tho brig
had drifted about six miles from tho stoamor.
Ashby tsked tho captain if ho would not lower his
small brat, but this, the Captain said, was in a
condition unfit to be used. An offer wns made by
Ashby t* Captain Birch of $5OO if he would got
his brig alongaldo of tho Central Amorica. Tho
captain repeated his statement that this was im
po.-islblo in tho condition his vessel thon was.
Ashby row 'promised $lOO a man to those who
would gc baok in his small boat. David Reymond.
quarternaster, said ho would go to tho steamer if
she was fifty miles away, and that ho was above
taking pry for such sorvices. Four men wont buck
In tho beat. Ashby remained on the Marine , not
withstanding his pledge to Captain Herndon .
Asmal boat’s crow of firomon arrived at tho
Sfarine thortJy after the arrival of Ashby’s boat.
Captain Birch said they should not como on board;
but thoy would not hood his commands, but got ou
board. I tried to get these men to back, but
nothing could induce thorn. Mcnntiroo the two
first bo&ts rotumed to tbo steamer aud biought
other parties from tho steawor. From tho brig
rockets woro-seen thrown up from tho Contra!
Amorioi.
Tho boat Bent back by Ashby to tho steamer re
turned about 10 P. M., and brought intolligonoo of
the sinking stoamor. This information oauaod a
thrill of horror and deepest emotion and suffering
to tho rescued passengers ou tho hrig. None were
prepared to rco&ivo those melancholy nnd awful
tidin & No ono felt any fear hut that tho steamer
would rllo out tho night in safety, and every
felt thatpresorvatlon was at hand. Many of the
rescuod vlves of tho passongors, wno lmd loft their
husband* behind them, declared with cries of
ploreingagony that they would rather have staid
behind ind gone down with their husbands than
to have beon saved without them. The scono
on the boat was one long to be remombored. I hnvo
passed through trying scenes before of fearful suf
fering,but nono that equalled this.
Tho Marino lay to all night, and as soon ns it
was daylight eryised about to seo if nnything
crmld be scon of the stoamor or her passengers
There woro five vessels in sight, but nothing was
seen of tho steamer or any of tho pnssougors or
crow loft on board of her when sho sunk. Finding
that further search would bo Ineffectual, tho cap
tain healed his brig for Norfolk, Va.
On th« passago for Norfolk everything was douo
onboard tho Marino, with the niongro accommo
dations it command, to mako tho pa&dongora oom
fortahlo. Its accommodations wore vory meagre,
but such ns they woro, thoy woro most aooeptablo
and gratefully reooived and appreciated. Tho
captain his oWn cabin to tho ladies, but it did
not begin to bo largo enough to accommodate the
number on board. A large numbor of tho ladies
had to sloop on tho top of tho cabin, with nothing
bat a piece of canvas to protect them against tho
cold and wator os It wnshod over tho ship. Thoy
all had to he fed oufcof two or threo cups, nnd,with
wooden spoons. Tho lack of provisions was tho
main oauno of suffering.
I'ORTUKATE MEETING OP A SHIP.
On the third day, fortunately, we mot tho ship (
Eufrozo:, jgoing from Philadelphia to Now Orleans.
Upon nuking known tkoconditionof things to him.
he scntou board some chickens, n barrel of bread,
a quantity of coffee, ton, sugar, *fco.,'whichfurni*h
cd most acceptable nutriment and comfort. Tho
oaptainof tho ship oumo on board and offered to
tako nnr of tho pagsongors who had friends in New
Orleunsund desired to go with him. Aa none de
sired togo tho offer wa# not accepted but the cap-
kindly offer waa fully appreciated, and nsho
left tho brig to go on his own boat, three round of
ohoors vero given to him.
Tho steam tug City of Norfolk was encountered,
and an arrnngomont mndo to tow tho Marino and
parties in board iuto Norfolk, for whioh S3<lo was
paid. Upon arriving within twonty-tivo miles of
Norfolk, the Empire City met us and took on board
all tho passongora from tho Central America,
captaih m'uowan’h reception or sik. auiijiv.
Mr. Ashby, tho chief cuginoor of tho Central
America, waa going on board with the others, but
Captain McGowan told him not to couio on his
saeamor. Mr. ABhby wished to knew tho reason
of refusing him a plnco on board. Captain Mc-
Gowan guvo bim plninly to understand, and so told
biin in substance, that he had acted mod cowardly
in desettinghis steamer , and assured him that it'
he attempted to set foot on his steamer he would
blow his damned brains to hell! Ashby attempted
nu explanation, but Captain McGowan would listen
to no explanation, but assorted that ho based his
aotionupon reliable information touching Ashby’s
selfish cowardice, and would havo nothing to say
to bim.
NAMES OV HOME or TIIH LOST PASSENGERS.
Mr. Bassford speaks positively, of bis own
knowledge, of the following persons having boon
on board tho Control America, and probably lost:
Jauiesßurob, aboovy Btago proprietor in San
Franoisao. Mr. Burch, ho says, got on an over
coat and had everything in rondinoss, waiting
with the expectation of being taken on board a
small boat and convoyed to the brig. "When wo wont
away, wo saw him standing neur tho bow, Bmoking
a as though ho was enjoying himsolf very
comfortably.
John Loonard, Buffalo, N. Y, Ho gavo Mrs
Marvino. one of tho rescued passengers, a bag of
uionoy, with instructions to carry tho same to his
mother, who lives in Buffalo.
Mr. Marvine, Buffalo, N. Y,, agent for steam
boats betweon Buffalo and Chicago. Air. Mnrviuo
was tho husband of tho lady with whom John Leo
nard, mentioned above, loft his money.
——McCarty, an extenaire former inGtoneiw
County.
Two brothers,named Tompkins, wheelwrights in
Eldridgo street, this city. The family of one of
them resides In Now Itochello, and the other is a
widower.
riutchin?, a young man, whose father is a
farmer, and lives near Boston.
—— Storons, a young man who used to be part
ner in a store with Mr. Riohard Carman, of Car
wansWHe.
Mr. Bosi-ford formod an acquaintance with the
pnssongera mentioned above in ooming from Cali
fornia, and only gathered the surnames of most of
them.
Purser Hull, Mr, Bnsaford says, fell upon his
baok tho dav previous to tho loss of the' steamer.
Tho purser besought Capt. Herndon to let him go
in ono of the small boats that loft the steamer, but
the captain told him ho had bettor stick to the
steamer liko a true officor, and so ho did, although
disabled from being of any service from his lama
book-
A young man named Lowe, Mr. Bassford states,
gave a bag of monoy to Miss Lockwood, and asked
her to give it to his mother. He does not know
whoro Low© lived, but saw him give the geld—
about $2,000 ho should estimate —to Mias Lock
wood, and hoard him mako the request.
Tho fathor of Miss Lockwood Is supposed to ho
tost also. Ho had been to California the past year,
having boon employed to go Inhere by Colonel J. C.
Fremont, to settle his quarts claims at Mariposa.
A colored man named Carrison, it appears by
Mr. Bassford, belonged to the Central America,
and Captain Herndon placed groat confidence In
him, so muoh so that ho deputed him as one of tho
men to man ono of the small-boats. Upon arritffi
ing at the brig Marine, Garrison preferred to r4-*
main rather than trust himself to going baok. 4*
the small boat came baok to the steamer with only
threo men to man her, Captain Herndon expresud
surprise at the desertion of Garrison, and wisffoa,
to know who would volunteer to take hi* place. A
young man named Blass, from Newberg r offered to
go. Captain Herndon said he did not know whether
he could trust him, and asked him. if he could row
well. The young man said, “I havo a hard hand
that can row, and a soft heart that oan feel.” Cap
tain H. was so struck with the foree of the remark
that ho told him, “ I boliove you trustworthy, yoii
can go.” Blass did go, and proved himself worthy
the trust ooramittod to him.
Mr. Bagfiford.whooommunie&tedtfie above foots,
had bnt partially recovered from a fracture of one
of his hips, in California, when he left San Fr&ri
oigoo. The hard labor heundorwent in his efforts,
with others of the passengers, to bafl the Central
Amorloa, with loss of Bleep and insufficient food,
has nearly prostrated him. Although he has lost
his money and impaired his health, he feels like the
others who have beon saved, that he has no cause
to complain. As for the steamship, he thinks had
her engines been kept agoing she would have rode
out the storm in safety.
STATEMENT OF NRS. WILLIAM McNEIU.
HOW THE LADIE9 RECEIVED THE NEWS OF TnEIR
It was first known by ns women that the Cenf
tral America had sprung a leak, on Friday, Sept
-12, at 2P. M. Wo were all in bed sea sick, and
hud not beon up foe threo days, bocause of our sea
siokness, oaused by the heavy sea. In our fright
wo got up, and entirely forgot onr sea siokness.
The gentlemen got pails, and told us they wer4
going to put coals on the fire; but It was not 60-7
it was to bail tho wator from the hold. We soon
learned somothlng about our real danger. Tho sea
was fearfully high, nnd tho ship was tossed to and
fro In groat violonoo by tho tempest; but, not
withstanding that,'the women showed great cou
rago and solt-corapasuro—not a tear was shed by
any of thorn—there was the calmness of tho gr&vo
among them. The men told us to be oheerfal-4
that it would soon be nil right: indeed, although
we considered ourselves in imminent peril, we aid
not know tho full extent of it The men did aV[
thoy could to koo]> that knowledge from us. Wu
remained quietly in tho cabin—we oould not rej
main on ono side of the boat, because it was all
down We bad to go into tho gentlemen’s cables]
and Ihore we remained all the afternoon.
THE STORM.
Wo heard tho wator roiling and d&shmg against
tho sifios of the ship, thinking it was on the outside
whon in reality it was in the cabin—right below
us. In that condition wo remained all night, the
sea rnunlng vory high, and occasionally breaking
over us, tho wind blowing a perfect hurrioano, the
ship rolling and boating about, everything making
a most fearful nolso, the rigging and Bpurscraoking
nnd groaning, tho dishes, lamps, furniture, Ao!
smashing and orashing togothor. It was an awfuj
night, but the women still endured it without tear*
or moans. j

LATER FROM CALIFORNIA
IMPORTANT FROM PERU.
By the steamship Philadelphia, at New Orleans
on the 11th inst, we have tho dotalls of tho Cali
fornia advices to the 20th ult., the same as should
havo reochod us by tho Central America.
Wo copy the following summary of the fort
night’s news from the Alta California :
The Settlers’ Convention adjourned on tho sth
inst., after nominating Edward Stanley for Gover
nor; Nathaniel Bennett, for Supreme Court Judge;
A. A. Sergeant, for Attorney General, and P. M.
Randall for Surveyor Gcporal. Tho Dcmocratio
nominees for Lieutenant Governor, Comptroller,
Treasurer, and State Printer, were ondorsed by
tho Convention.
Tho van of tho overland immigration has at last
crossed the Sierra Nevada, and for the last week
trains have been pouring into thi9 State through
tho various mountain passes. Tho great mass of
immigrants, however, thus far, bavo como via Ge
noa, in Carson Valley, and Placerville, and over
tho road now being rapidly improved between these
places. All accounts agree «3 to tho great numbers
on tho way—more than any season sluce 1852.
Thoro is also mu oh stock en route, and consider
able quantities liavo boon driven into tho Carson
Vulloy in good condition.
The immigrants bring startling accounts of the
depredations of tho Indians beyond the Sink of tho
Humboldt, and in tho Gooso Creek Mountains.
Many lives are reported to havo been lost, but
most of those stories are doubtless exaggerated, as
little evidence of an authentic character has yet
been divulged. That tho Indians have, however,
killed and driven off an unusual amount of stock,
is undeniable, ns nearly all of the trains arriving
haTO suffered from their doprcdatlons.
Owing to tho scarcity of water in many portions
of the raining region, our interior exchanges nro
unusually barren of items chronicling the receipt
of “ big lumps,” the announcement of “great
strikes,” or the opening of “ rich leads.” But in
quartz raining much activity prevails, and in El
Dorado county auriferous veins are being workod
whioh yield marvellously well—os high, iu one in
stance, as a dollar to tho pound of'rock, or two
thousand dollars to the ton. This claim is owned
by J. R. Beard, formerly Supreme Court clerk.
Extonstvo fluming operations are in progress on ult
of tho mining streams, but it is yet too early to
learn of the eucoessof these enterprises.
Agriculturists throughout the Stato are taking
a deep interest in tho forthcoming Ftato Fair,
which is to bo hold at Stockton duriug tho last
week in September. Tho arrangements in pro
gress are on a far grander scale than ever before,
and there is no doubt that tho festival will prove
in tho highost degree successful.
Throughout the interior tho heat has been ex*
cessivo. On the 9th inst., the morcury, in some
portions of tho State ran up to 120 deg. in the
shade, and in rery tew places besides this city did
it fall below 100 deg. on that day. Even here it
will long be kuown as “tho hot Sunday,” although
thaseabroezo greatly raitigatod tho heat of the
sun In the after part of the day.
Of murders, affrays, suicides, and other deeds of
crime and violence, many more aro chronicled
than it has boen our misfortune to record for a
long timo past. A number of culprits have ex*
prated tho extreme penalty of the law for their of*
fences, and many more have been sent to the pe
nitentiary from various parts of the State.
Considerable fever prevails along tho American
river, above Saeramonto, and many miners aro
nnablo to attend to their labors. In Yolo county
sore throat is prevalent, and in this city influenza

Death or a TYoRTHr Citizen*—The Death
of Adam Fasig. which was announced in last week's
Reading Journal, is deserving of something more
than tho usual brief notice. For many years, says
tho Journal , ho wus classed among our mostenier
prfting and useful citizens, and much of the pros
perity of Reading is owing to his individual exer
tions. Frugal m habit and unostentatious in
manner, he accumulated wealth by asmreoef
patient industry, and used it rather for the pur
pose of advancing tho interesrsof his native city
than fur his personal advantage. Friends never
applied to him in vain for assistance, nor were tbo
unfortunate over eent away from his Joot emp’r
banded. The upper portion of our eity is especi
ally indebted to him for the rapid improvement
which has been manifested in that quarter of late
years while the various manufacturing enter
prises in every pirt of the town, owe much to his
judioious expenditure, and practical experience
and assistance in making them what they are.
Tho death of such a man is a public calamity, and
if any evidence were needed that it was viewed in
that light, it was furnished by the unusually largo
enneourso of citizens who, on last, follow
ed his remains to their final resting-place in tho
Charles Evans Cemetery. Few citizens have pars
ed from among us with truer evidences of heartfelt
sorrow and reapeot—and few, we may add, will be
held in more grateful remembrance. Peace to bis
ashes!
The Bravest Man at Waterloo.—A bequest,
similar to the ‘‘Jackson Gold Snuff-Box.*' waa
onco made in England by a gentleman, who left a
sword to be given to the ‘‘bravest man at Water
loo.” It was referred to the Buko of Wellington
to decide to whom the su ord should be given. Tho
Dnko would not sav who was the bravest where all
wero brave, but said that tho won who were tho
most severely tried on that memorable day were
thoso who defended tbo position at the chateau
Hougoumont, and that inquiry should be made re
garding those who fought at that point. This was
done, and the award wits finally made to a British
sergeant, who, at a critical moment, when the
French had unexpectedly forced open the gate of
tbo chateau, and wero about to enter, rushed for
ward. and. by tho exertion of great personal
strength and determination, succeeded, alone, in
shutting the gate in tho face of the French troops,
and holding it till hia comrades carno to his as
sistance.

An intelligent person, in tho liquor trade, esti
mates tho number of places in Philadelphia where
liquor is sold at fivo thousand house?, of which
only ono thousand are licen-ed, this being the
limit of tho present law. The loss of revenue to
the city ho estimates at $lOO,OOO. This is a large
sum; and, if people will sell, they ought to pay.
Ono of your correspondents lately recommended
that this business should be thrown open to all
who will pay for a license, and give security
to keep a proper hooso. and not to sell to minors
or intemperate persons, on the plan of the license
law of 1549. D'e should like to have the views of
The Pbess on this very important subject.
