The Arco IriSiof the 18th inst. says': The

From the same Paper of tie 18th, we
hastily glean the following items :

Both boats were then sent in pursuit of
more bodies; while the Delaitare was made
fast to the wreck and succeeded in towing
her to Sheboygan, where she sunk in 'eight
feet water. Soon after the arrival of the
wreck at Sheboygan, the boats tame up,
one with five dead bbdeies, and the other
with baggage and fur noire.
At this tinte °near t e Pliienix!s boats came
up from the shore where the tit() boats had
gone from the burning vessel, taking with
them forty-two of the crew and passengers.
The boat that now came up contained - the

The Delaware soon left on her downward

In a hurried intercourse. with Mr. M. W.
House, first engineer of the Phcteix, who
came down on the De'laware, we gathered
the following particulars :
Mr. House, who was then on duty as en
gineer, discovered the fire about 4 o'clock
A. M., when to all appearance the fire cov
ered but ii very small spate. It spread how
ever along 'the underside of the deck with
the rapidity of a powder train, and notwith
standing • three • pumps and several lines of
water buckets were put in operation imme
diately, it was found impossible to check the
flames. • •
The clerk and an Irishman were saved
by taking to the rudder chains, abd were
rescued from theit perilous situation after
the arrival of the ,Delaware, -by the small
boats. I When taken on board they were
almost entirely helpless, and could not in
any probability, have remained in the posi
tion they. were in much longer. The perse
verance and fortitude or the clerk, and :the
advice and encouragement lie endeavcired
to instil into his companion, while occupying
their dangerous position, gave them, both
fresh hopes, and, no doubt, were the means
of saving their lives.
A lad, about fourteen Tears of age, one of
the porters, of 'the boat, who, in company
with another boy, had worked incessantly
from the commencement of the fire until
1 their, pump gave out, after getting near the
bow ;f the boat, formed a determination,
wih is comrade, to jump overboard, and
try to save themselves by swimming. The
kale, hero, after watching one of the deck
hanchi, whii had fortunately got bold of a
plank, and made,,a 'plunge for, the water,
mustered up his resolution, and followed,
taking ' another course entirely, from die
hand, and, by swimming about ten rods,
was piCked oplby the boat in -charge of his
brother, the mate, by those in the boat-pass

Taa Loss OF TRW PROPELLER PINENIE
CONPIRRED.--..TWO HUNDRED LIVES Lose.
—The difference between the speed oflight
ning and the ordinary travel is illustrate.;.•
the fact that the confirmation of the lose of
the propeller Phcenix, announced by tele
graph on Saturday, has just reached Buffs.
10. The Express of that 'city of Monday;
gives the melancholy particulars as 'follows;
On Saturday evening last we received al
telegraphic despatch froth New York, an-I
nouncing the 'distressing intelligence of th
burning of the propeller Phcenix on Lak
Michigan, an Sunday of last week, and th eefl
destruction of a large number of lives. The
report was not at first generally credited,
but yesterday morning the schooner Onto:
flagon arrived .bringing a coroboration
the calamity, faith some particulars in relit:
tion to it.
Capt. Robinson, of the schooner, saw and
conversed with the mate of the Phtenix, who
is on 'board the propeller Delaware and
gathered from him the following particulars :
—On Sunday, the 21st instant, the propeller
Pheenit, having on board some two hUndred
men, wemen and children, emigrant passen
ger, mostly from Holland, besides the crew
of about thirty-five persons, and forty cabin
passengers, bound for Chicago, made Mani
towoc Bay, - .l 4 ake Pilichigan* in heavy
weather for shelter from the gale. She let
go her anchors, but the sea was so heavy
that she dragged them, and to . save herself
from shipwreck she put out to sea again...
She had proceeded to within 15 miles of
Sheboygan, being about equi-distant from
from that place nod Manitowoc, and about .
six miles offshore, when a fire was discover
ed in her hold. Every effort was made to
extinguish it and with good success. Bind
the vessel seemed doomed to destruction, foti
they had no sooner mastered the fire in the
hold, than it broke out between jlie' decks,
having been communicated from the boiler!.:
The wind wits quite fresh, and bloWing di-;
rectly on shore, which accounts for tier be
ing so far off land. Capt. Sweet was con.
fined to his berth by sickness, and the cow
mind devolved upon the first mate.
The greatest terror and confusion ensueil
1 1 on the second Appearance' of fire, and all
hopes of raving the vessel abandoned
A rush was then made for the small boat,
when Mr. David Bliss, of Southport, with
great presence of wind and determination of
purpose, ordered and drove theni away from
the boat, directing the mate to take possesi,
Bien of it and lower it away. He then took
•Capt. Sweet from his room and • placed hi '
in the boot, when be directed some tweet '
others to • follow, and the boat then left th
,Propeller for the shore—Mr. Bliss himself
remaining behind. •
The Propeller Delaware hove in sigh
,about the same time the boat left, an
new hopes were raised on board, that sh
might reach them time to save them front
destruction—hut it wag a vain hope. The
boXt that left for shore arrived in safety, but
before the Delaware could come up with the
burning vessel, she sunk, and all on board,
except two picked up, had perished either
by fire or flood. Mr. Blish fell, a victim t
his efforts, to save others—he bentg ninon
