He might aa well go han himself
With his Atlantic Cuble.
But Ctkcr was a valiant man,
A, fellow of decision;
And heeded not their mocking words,
Their laughter and derision.
Twice did Lis bravest efforts fi!,
And yet his mind was stable;
Tie wu'u't the man to breuk his heart
Because lie broLo his cable. ,

Burning of the Austria. Details of the Calamity.
Statement of Mr. Alfred Vezin.
Mr. Alfred Verin of Fliilndnlyhiit was
among the passengers rescued by the ttencli
bark Maurice. Ho is a young gentleman
of intelligence, and having Wen fne of the
List passengers to leave the after part of the
burning vessel, and his recollection of many
interesting incidents connected with the ca
lamity Icing distinct ond vivid, his slate
ment is one of rare interest. Ilia mother
and two sisiers the latter respectively 9
and 17 years of age accompanied him, nnd
were among those lost.
At 2 o'clock in the nfternoon, Mr. Vezin
wns cntrnged in conversation in the nfter
part of the stenmcr, when a-woman enmc
lift from the steerage, and nuid tiiey were
fumigating the steerage. Thinking her to
be in jst, lie laughed ot her, ond though lie
saw the moke emit from (lie bows, lie
thought it wns smoke blown down from the
funnel. A moment ofter, largo numbers
of perrons rushed oft, among whom were
mnuy women ond children. The movement
was Accompanied by lond cries of "fire."
Soon tlit whole vessel above deck was olive
with excitement. A. moment's observation
discovered the smoko escaping in larire vol
umes from the forward hatchways, nnd this
itrcrcascd I lie fearful apprehension of imme
diate danger,. The flames began to creep
above the deck, ond soon caught whatever
wood woi k was near. The vessel was head
ing to the wind, ad though U Ueese was
ligl.t, yet the smoke and heat wcro turned
hH, and hirge numbers of passengers were
driven toward the quarter-deck Mr. Vc
ziii's sisters were on deck, but his 'naother
wns not. He hurried toward the cabin. La
search of bT, but was driven back bv the
smoke and lire. Mr. lircw took a chnir
and dashed in the cabin skylight, when Vc
zm saw. Iiis mother down there with the
stewordess. He shouted for her to come
up on deck through the wheel-house,- and
she did so She was weeping, but ecy
chIvvi and firm holding her daughters by the
hand. The mnn at the wheel was asked to
alter the direction of the shin, so that the
flumes ond smoke might be blown over the
side. : Ho heed, however, was pnid to the
request, as there were no officers visible to
enforce it; the hent became more nnd more
unendurable, and tlie pASowiorera wore swent
stiU further nft, crowding Upon the little
poop aeck over tlie wheel-house from which
they were compelled by the flames to lenp
into the sea. In, the midst of this fearful
scene there was not the first itwKcntipn that
tho officers of the vessel possessed the final
ties necessary to their position. When wo
men were screaming ond in hysterics, chil
dren crying from the suffering they endured
from the heat, and passengers rushing about
in wild confusion, not knowing what was to
be done, the officers behaved, themselves
like imbeciles or cowards. When the fourth
oEiiccr ran np from the steerage, after care
lessly or otherwise setting the vessel on fire,
he rushed aft, jumped into one of the boats,
followed by several of the passengers.-
As. the boat was being let d)wn the captain
made a spring after it, but did not succeed
in reaching it. He caught a rorre, fcowever
but the speed ut which the vessel was run
ning whs so great that lie was drawn un
der, ond he wns soon exhausted, let go his
hold ond sank. . The bout wns smashed un
der the propeller, ond nil on board of her
were lost. come of the pnssengers songht
for buckets, but none were at hand. They
tried to descend to the cabin, but they were
iCr?t by the flumes and smoke, which rushed
np through the hatchway. At last, a mpc
wns passed down tlie ventilator, -nnd they
were able to secure some tin pails in the
second cabin; bat these were of naaijail in
checking the progress of the flames, which
had already communicated to the upper
deck; and were leaping from point to p.oint
with fearful portent. In the cabin ond
steerage the flames and smoke had full
sweep, cutting off tii,e escape of many scores
lietow, wno were soon, siilHoeatcd or burned,
between decks. , Air. Vezin, with others,
succeeded in drawing up several, mostly la
dies, from the CJibjnK through the skylight.
And while those below saw no. hop of es
cape from tti'ir torments bnt in death, the
spirits of the few on the deck were aroused
by the appearance of two vessels in tlie
horizon. They were mere specks, and dis
tant many miles; yet so lost were many to
all preseuce of mind, that immediately on
observiug them they commenced shouting,
amp ahoy." in the menu time the suffer
ings of those ojrt, the after deck increased.
Of the four woodai boats aft, one was al
ready lost, by being dragged nuder the pro
peller. A second was burned before they
could get her tackle loose. In a third a
large number of passengers, mostly females,
were crowded, and the hoisting tackle be
ing loosed, the strain on the chocks becamo
too great when the boat fell and alt in it
were lost. Another got off from tlie ves
sel with five or six passengers on board,
and Mr. Vesin thinks that Mr. Iloxie, for
merly a jobbing n,;erc,liaut of this city, but
more recently a lesident of riiila1deih,i,
who Lad been some years absent in ijK
where his wife recently died, was anoui-j
the number. The bout, however, had n)
ours, and was soon left far behind too,
to be discovered by the French, bark. The
engines' of the steamer contined to run
about an, hour after the accident. Left, as
they were, without boats, the period of ex
istence of over a hundred persons assem
bled on the quarter deck became one of
physical endurance of the beat. The flames
leaped up the shrouds, and licked along the
yard,, b,e saiLi ww? wrapped in fl,auest
and burning fragments of them were con
tinually falling on the persons of those be
low, and setting the dresses of the ladies
on fire. One garment after another was
in this way destroyed, and the loss of each
only exposed them more and moro to the
intense beat. When they could no longer
bear up under this torture, they would jump
overboard. Some, however, retained their
position for a long time, determined to en
dure everv possible sufferiuj before jumping
overboard, and soma of the ladies wer al
most disrobed before they took the fearful
leap into the jawg of death. The men, too,
endured the scorching until they were forc
ed to seek la a wateiy grave reljef from
their Bufferings. They were, generajk en
giijphftd atj ouce. The wompn who haa any
gV'meaU Ifcft would be bou jed up for, a mo
ment by tbemt Vu1 V '" minutes they
sippeared so suddenly tha'. It seemed ns
some unseen power bclMr. had caught
them and di ng ted them under. Mr. Sond
heim of New York, was quite distracted.
His wife nnd five iitih es were with him.
He sought in vain for some means to save
them, and when it last thcro seemed no
hope, he quietly waited the momeut when
they were forced to jump frq;n the vessel.
The steward atyl rta.vardess, Who had, sue-
cccded in reaching the duck before the
flames had extended into the cabin, were
known to bo lor :rs. They remained by one
another, exhibiting the fondest affection.
When Torced bythe beat to go overboard,
they embraced and kissed one another,
sprang into the water, nnd sank locked in
each others arms. There was screrul newly
married couples on board oinonj the Ocr
maiip88sengcrs. The hns'innd, in some
instances, succeeded in getting hold of pie
ces of rope which they ticdobont the waists
of their wives in the hope of being able to
save them. A sea enptaiu from New Or
leans nnd his wife were pnsseiigers. For
some time he made strenuous efforts to ex
tinguish the fire, by lifting water witL
buckets up tho ship's sido. The tackle,
however, would become eutanglcd, nnd
when the buckets were drawn to the dock
they would be half empty.
When Mr. Vezin 1iad got his mother and
sisters together on the quarter deck, he en
denvored to calm their fears ond to persuade
them that there was no immediate danger.
He then left them for n moment to look for
some means of safety, ond when he return
ed they had taken their position, with about
sixty other ladies, who had crowded togeth
er Wrjli, V'cir children on one sido of the
quarter-deck,, wjicre he was unable to reach
them. He had Wrought with him a tin
bucket which be asked his iwUluer. to take,
aud, inverting it, use it as a life-preserver.
She refused, it, remarking that it was use
less. He ngain, departed in the hope to find
some other means available to save the lives
his mother and sisters," but bis aiarch
Dhiring ajl this scene of excitement, the
sufferers gnzed wistfully toward the horizon,
to watch the approach of the vessel which
wns evidently sending toward them; but
their despair.was almost maddened, os it
became evident thai they must Le lost be
fore the succor should reach them, and one
by one they jumped into the deep, with
their gaze but a moment before fixed upon
wh.at they had hoped would rescue them
from, m impending djalli. At last Mr.
V czin was forced lo secure some place of
protection from the intense heat, liut fe-w
f the whole number who had, assembled
on the quarter deck were now remaining.
Discovering a rope hnnging over the
starboard quarter, ho let himself down, and
was thus secured from the heat, liut the
position lie occupied was underneath some
burning rigging, and fragments from this
were constantly falling upon him. Several
times his clothes caught lire, aad, ns his lust
resource he let himself into t Lo water, still
holding fast to the rope. While here he
heard the explosion of the keg of powder
the magazine.. At frequent intervals
persons remaining on the quarter-deck would
jump overboard and sink within a few yards
of where Vic was floating suspended by bis
rope. Mr. Tiott of New York swung doa
to where he was, but slipping dowu too far
was washed eff by the sea nnd lost.- Near
him were forr or five young German, i be
lieved to be merchants of this city, clingirg
to a rope hanging over the stern. Tiiey
were unable, however, to sustain themselves
and were gradually losing their hold nnd
dropped off ono by one. Mr. Rogel, a
well-kuo,wn apothecary from Baton Rouge,
La., and a very kind-hearted man, had low
ered himself by one o th,e boat ropes that
hung from the davits near Vizen, und held
on for a time; but the sea washed, over
him repeatedly, until lie became very ma eh
exhausted and, expected momentarily to be
swept from his hold. Turning to A ezin he
desired him, if lie lived, to tell his. wife that
be thought of her in his last, moments, and
sent her his undying love. Veziu promised
to do ihia if, he survived.
Mr. Vezin soon after discovered an ob
ject flouting- on the. water a short distance
from hira. Jlis position then was iminent
ly critical. He was frequently submerged
by the waves, and lie knew that he must
eventually be exhausted. The only object
uear appeared to be a cork life-bjioy, to
which he resolved to trust himself, le com
municated his intention to lioel, and tell
ing him to take his place, quitted the rope
and struck out for that which was his only
hope of safety. In a moment the buruiug
steamer was far away. Ry a few vigorous
strokes, he was enabled to, reach his object.
He had", n,o,t counted wrongly. It proved
to be a canvass bug filled with fragments
of cork, aud more than sufficient to buoy
him up so long as he should be able to cling
to it. For a long time he had been troub
led with a disease of tho heart, and up to,
the time when the calamity occurred he had
suffered much from it. Notwithstanding
this physical disability, lie found himself
possessed of a renewed strength, which was
mcrensed by observing from time to time
after he had floated an hour or two, that
the vessel they had watched with such iu
tense interest from the Bteamer was Hearing
him. He occasionally came across frag
ments of wood which he caught, and com
bining them with his bag of cork made a
small raft. What becume of Mr. Jlogel
after Vezin left the steamer be could not
say, but supposed that he was drowned.
Mr. Vcziu floated about for several hours
before he was picked up. About two hours
after he left the ship he drifted near a col
ored steward named Edward Arindolph,
who had a life preserver similar to his.
The poor fellow was nearly chilled through,
and his teeth chattered like one with tha
ague. He was ready to give up iu dispair,
but Veziu cheered him up, and they mutu
ally agreed if either of them, were picked up
first, to direct the boat in search of the ot h
er. When Vezin was, rescued he kept his
pledge. After flouting abp.ut several hours
1,8 observed a boat coming tjoward him.
He hailed her, and in a moment be heard
his bait answered. He was assured then
of hja. aafetj, apd soon after the boat ap
proached aud took' hinjt, in, Mr. Eibfeld, of
this city was already in the bpat, bntseuse
less. .The boat was about to, p& him. an
dead wueu he was first discovered floating
oil the Btirfjaee, but the crew fottuoatoly
changed their tabid and returned to him.
The subsequent day ha was. dlirioaa from
lis sufferings, n the walir np! being badly
burned, bnt there were no fears hut trmkhel
would hltimately recover Ho continued
on the" vessel toFayal.' ftoon after Mr.
Vezin was rescued they were haled by one
of the steamer's boats containing three offi
cers and soma of the seamen of the Anstria.
They reported that when they U-ft the
Rteomer, there were from fifty to sixty fer
nns liiialnjtf in the chains about her bowg.
Tlie tirst officer Ilahn was iwkcd, to return
with the boat to the steamer to rescue some
of them he reported as olive about the bows.
He seemed indifferent to their fute. and fi
TiaHy declined to return under the exenso
that he had sent his boat adrift. The Mau
rice continued to sail about the steamer du
ring the night, nni) jn the morning ran near
to the Austria. T-i,orf. were none then re

Mr. Vezin states Hint tlicnnniher ofbonts,
even if nil had been lowered safely nr.d fill
ed, was inadequate to rescne the passengers.
Thcra were only eight fonr of them metal
lic life-boats in the bow, and fonr wooden
boots in the stern. The ntter inefficiency
of the officers, too; the want of life-preservers
and nny means nvnilablo to save lift,
were such as to rnnder the wholesale slaugh

'The expression of the face is a beauti

aware of. the influence which it constantly
exerts over the dumb animal, on whom man
exercises his. cruelty, if the liorse or dog,
when suffering by a blow from the violence
of man, could turn npon hi tn with a look
of iudignatiou or appeal, could any one
resist tlie power of the mute expostulation?
How extraordinary, too, the difference of
expression in, the human face, by which the
recognition of personal identity is secured!

John W. Forney on Mr. Buchanan.
: We take the following extract from the
repoij of the ew-York Evening Pott, of
iJorney'a larrytown Sppcuh
Mr. Forney reviewed the cours,?. of Mr
Buchanan, who was elected, he said, on tlio
Shibboleth of popular sovereignty. Mr.
Buchanan had told him a thousand times :
"The Sjyjith smJ ote forme, nnd the north
must be secured ; ond the only way to se
cure the North is to convince the pcop,'0;
thut I wi.H do right with the people of
Kansas. . ?.
Mr. Hickman, whom the Republicans
trusted, who hat, I0.tc4 for the Topeka
Constitution and denounced the Kansas
Nebraska bill, was asked to take the stump
ond pledge M. Buchanan to the principlo
of popular sbwrfiirnty. ' If he had carried
out me pledges ut ma inaugural uuurcni",
Mr. Buchanan would have extinguirhd tho
Republican and American parties. Whett
he nominated Mrt- Walker for Governor of
Kansas, that gentleman protested that it
would be his ruin, and refused to accept
until he had met the cabinet face to face,
and all butone concurred with Mr. Walk
er' programme, and his consent w,aa secur

from those instructions, Mr Foruey waited

ho meant to make his Kansas policy a test.
"Very well," replied Mr Forney ; "we too
will make it a test at the ballot box." The
presidency transformed a tuao, luto. a gojl,
in his own estimation, or a luualic. No
body could approach p,o,er to tell the
truth. Tha iudeneudant man was hurried
