There is still one boat missing, but as she was
one of tho best of our llfo boats, only mod
erately loaded and fully provisioned and wa
tered, I strongly hope she has been Picked up by
u passing vessel, and her crew saved.
The origin of the fire I am unable to giro cer
tainly, but I think It broke out on the between
decks over the hollers, and pnsslblv anions the
cargo stowed there. It was not In tlio fore hold,
wheto It was supposed to be first.
During tho tire, and all the time while onboard
of the snip, the officers and crew behaved verv
well, performing their duties In a ipilet and cool
manner, there being only a slight unsteadiness
and disposition to rush for the boats shown bv
the llrenien nml coal passers when 1 commenced
to disembark tho passengers. This was readily
quelled, and all after this proceeded Inn cool
and quiet manner. Tho last person whom 1 sent

On the boat which capsized, my attention has
been called to the very gallant conduct of Mr.

Quartermaster, Peter Harry, seaman, and W.
Iiarrlsou, captain's man. to whom those persons
that wero saved In this boat aro Indebted for
their rescue. In closing Oil 1 report, 1 beg leave
to call our attention to the very kind and hos
pitable manner lu which our ship's company
were received by the liiha. .Hants of tho Islands
on which they landed. Many of those persons
are poor colored laborers, and they furnished
luatiy different articles of food and clothing, for
which they have not been paid, and I think some
compensation should tie made them, so as not
to discourage them lu being kind to other ship
wrecked persons who might be cast on their

When tlio sluilioiinl qtnu'tcr bout rliovttl
off from tho ship under charge of Mr. Ilaffey, a
passenger, It contained thirty-four persons.
Then there were but two boats, the port quarter-boat
and n capsized boat, left for those on
board. While hoisting the capsized boat lo the
duviutoball her out. she was struikbyu sea
and her bow stove In. This left but one boat
for all remaining 011 board, not enough to carry
them. This boat was therefore scut nltli a
number of persons to be tlls'rlliutcd among the
other boats. To tho starboard quarter-boat,
Mr. H.iLey's, she took three men. The boat was
already deeply loaded, and this addition In
stantly swamped her. and all w.-ro left strug
gling 111 the water. Nine of tho'o lu this boat
disappeared before alio was righted, and they
are supposed to bo lost.
Mome 1 lung to her, others drlf led away on life

They were In this condition six or eight hours,
and then the survivors reached the broken
boat. '1 he quarter-boat was baled out, aud then

They had nu sail, and material was called fur.
Men stripped off their shirts. The. woniuii were
equally ready, and they took off their skirts
and handed them to the sallmakcr. A sail was
made of sumo strips of can wis, shirts, women's
skirts and rope-yarns, aud thus, without food
or water, the boat started for Watliug's Island.

of Profs. Geuth of Philadelphia, Wormloy of

given to-dny for Dr. Schooppo, and was very
strong In his favor. At ten nilnutos of fivo this
afternoon the dcfeiico closed, and tho prosecu
tion mado no further offer. Dr. Schooppo re
ceived tho announcement very calmly.
Tho Hon, Samuel Hepburn next aroso and an
nounced to the Court that counsel for the de
fenco wero willing to submit tho caso at onco to
the Jury with tho usual charge from tlio Chief
After a brlaf consultation between counsel for
tlio prosecution, Mr. C. II. McLaughlin statod to
tho Court that thoy relied upon tho positive evi
dence of death from poison as well as tho moral
circumstances of tho caso. Ho then explained
bis connection with tho caso, saying that ho had
taken part In tho present trial at tho Instance of
the present Slnlo Att.irnc), and that ho hud ro
eclved no promise nnd entertained no hope of
any reward. In fact, ho ho had In former trials
expended hundreds of dollars from Ills prtvato
tittrso In what ho believed to be the storn per
formance of an official duty.
Tho counsel for tho pr' .oner then took occa
sion to state that thoy hau lor years given their
services without clutrg.) and without expecta
tion of pecuniary reward. Unit they might save
tho llfo of an Innocent tnnii.
Tho Chief Jtidgo here romarkod that ho had
considered tho moral evidence so feoblu that on
the hearing for binding over to answer the
chargo ho could not see how- ho could hnve tlono
so, further remarking that ho believed that It
was Ood's providence which ulutio had saved
tho Court and former Jury from committing a
great wrong. He.cntisldored It remarkable that
though the relatives of Miss Stennecko
wero present at her deathbed, and know
of all the circumstances, they did not

Fourth Ward politician, received sovcro Injuries
about tho head and body. Cdward Stack had a
fight with a Dowllng man In tho samo place, and
was worsted. Welsh "determined on rovengo,
and, according to Impartial wltnossos, sought
out Jeremiah ICIrliy, Vlco-Presldcntof tho James

somewhat under tho Inlltience of liquor. Ilo
strolled Into a saloon at Poarl and New Cham

friends. Tho old snro was roopouod aud a bitter
quarrel ensued. Klrby nnd his friends beat
Welsh In a terrible manner with chtbs and bot

upon tho walk, and th"ro they renewed the
row. Officer O'llara reached tho spot In time lo
savo Welsh's life and arrest Klrby.
The beaten man presented a shocking specta

police station, ho waa still Insensible.
Dr. llruco dressed his wounds, and he was
