Failure or Capt Hall's Arctic Expedition.
The Arctic Expedition which started in
the steamer Talaris for the arctic coun
try in June, 1871, has come to failure.
Its commander, Capt Hall, died of par
alysis on the 8th of October, 1871. Nine
teen of the crew, while on an iceberg,
drifted away from the vessel on the 30th
of last April, and after floating about 196
days tbey were discovered by the steamer
Tigris, and takeu off and landed at St.
Johus, N F. These men ate the meat,
raw, of the seal aud polar bear, as they
could get it. The Polaris has not b
heard of siuce the men were separated
from her. She had a crew of thirteen
left, under the command of Capt Bud
Since the above was put in type the
following statement of Captain Tyson
who commanded the party, that was adrift
on the ice has been made public : On the
24th of August, 1871, we left Tessinack
and went throueb Smith's Sound. We
succeeded in getting as far north as lati

until the 5th of September. On the
10th of October Captain Hall started on
a sledge journey north, and returned on
the 24th, when he was taken sick, aud
died on the Sib of November. lie was
hurried on the 11th. The attack that
carried him ofl was said to be apoplexy.
We passed the winter at Poluris Bay.
On the 8ih of June, 1S72, we attempted
to reach the north with two boats. We
hauled our other boat on shore and re
turned overland on the Slh of J uly.
Wc started for home on the!12th of
August , aud the 15th were beset with
ice iu latitude 80 02 We drifted from
there down to latitude 77 35, when we
encountered a heavy southwe?tgale, the
ship being under heavy pressure. On
the night of the 15th we commcuced
landing provisions. See , on the ice, the
vessel being reported leaking very badly
at times. e continued landing provi
sions for two or three Lours, when the
pressure ceased. I weut on board 'the
vessel and asked the sailing master if the
vessel was making any more water than
usual. lie reported that she was not.
I then went to the pumps and ascertain
ed that that she was not making auy
more than she had been doing all suin-
I went on the ice again and short
ly after, it began to crack, and in a few
minutes afterwards brekc in many pieces
TLe vessel broke from her fasteniugs
and was soon lost to sicLt in the dark

vessel, we attempted to reach the shore.
in hopes of finding natives to assist ns
in liviug through .the winter. Getting
about half way to the shore w ith our
heavily laden boats our progress became
hard by the drifting ice, and I was com-
je!led to haul on the ice agaiu.
At this time I succeeded in saving
fourteen cans of pemmican, eleven and
a half bags of bread, teu dozen one and
wo pound cans of meat and soup, four
teen hams, one smnll bag of chocolate,
weighing twenty pounds ; some musk ox
skius, a few blaukets, a number of rides
and abundant ammunition. In the
morning, knowing that I Lad not provi
sions euough and other articles of food,
clothing, compasses, &c , on the abate
meut of the gale, I endeavored to shoot
as many seals as possible, both for food,
light and fuel,' but could only get three
owing to bad weather having set in. I
supposed the wind to be about southwest.
On its clearing up I found myself within
about eight milea of what I supposed to
be the east coast, and about thirty or
forty miles below the ebip. TLe ice bo-
g weak I could not transport boats and
provisions to land until it grew stronger.
While Lere I discovered my other hoat,
bread, &c, and saved all. TLe ice
growing firmer, I made another attempt
to reach the shore, carrying everything
in the boats, and dragging them on their
keels. The ice beinjr exceedingly rough
we stove both boats. We succeeded on
the 1st of November in getting about
half way to sLore. Night came on us
and stormy weather. In the morning
the ice was broken, and we were drifting
southward very fast. We saw no more
land for many days, bad weather contin
uing all through the month of Novem
ber. We built snow Louses, and made
ourselves as comfortable as we could.
We were ten white men, two Esquimaux
two women and five children in all. We
succeeded in killiug a few seals, which
furnished us with light and fuel with
which to warm our seanty allowance of
food through the darkness of the Arctic
In the latter part of February we lived
principally upon birds, and in March
commenced to catch seals. Through
that month wo supported ourselves on
the flesh of bears and seals, wasting
neither skin nor entrails. We collected
enough food wal to last us until the
middle of May, Lad we not Leen driven
to sea by a strong westerly gale in tLe
latter part of March, our floe piece being
often reduced from five miles in circumfe
rence to about twenty yards in diameter.
We lef the piece on April 1, and aban
doned nearly all our meat, a large amount
of amunition, clothing, skins and -other
articles, taking a portion of the meat
in tLe boat, which we ware obliged to
throw overboard on account of the boats
being so deeply ladened.
I regained the outer edge of the pack
of ice on tLe 3d of April, ane succeeded
in getting a little further in on the pack.
On the 4th Leavy northeast gale set in,
aheavy sea running under the ice, which
broke it in small pieces, so that we Lad

put tLe boart out, neither eouM we find
Reals for food, and we were reduced
almost to starvation.
On the twentyfirst of April we sight
ed a polar bear. Every person was or
dered io lie down and imitate the the
seal, while the two Esquimaux secreted
themselves behind a piece of ice, enticed
the bear near enough to us to kill him.
A few days after this we got our boat
in the water and worked our wey west
and south west, and continued to work,
every oppcrtunity to tLe westward, in
Lopes of reaching the Labrador coast
and getting temporary relief.
We were picked np by the steamship
Tigris, Captain Bartlett, on the 30th of
Apil, in latitude 53 35 north, longitude
55 west, or near Wolf I bl ind, and about
forty miles from land. TLe polaris is

The following is from one of Captain
Tyson's men : "When the party separa

signal light at night. We Lave suffered
most since April 1st. On the night of
the 22nd of April, the sea washed over
the ice with great force. The women
and children were under the boat, while
the men were outside trying to keep the

the men were washed off several times,
and after being rescued their feet and

New Orleans, May 8. The advices
from St. Martinsville report the situation
unchanged. During the skirmish yes
terday afternoon a young lady, aged 16,
was wounded in the neck, and one man
in the arm. It appears that the police
fired on some houses thinking there were
armed men within.
Badger's position is considered pro
carious, and his retreat may be expected
at any time. The mayor of the town
has been imprisoned for high treason.
The number of the metropolitans wound
ed is less than heretofore reported.
A consultation was held at the War
Department this morning, there being
present General Sherman, Acting Secre
tary of War Robeson, Attorney-General

1$ was decided to instruct General
Emory tbat he should call for whatever
troops were necessary to euforce the
laws and preserve the public peace ; but
that officer will not otherwise interfere,
except in assisting the proper authorities

Brasdear Citt, May 8. About
forty mounted metropolitans crossed the
Teclie to-day, cn route for St. Martins
ville. The balance, about fifty, returned
to New Orleans to night. The United
States troops are still here awaiting trans
portation. Arrangements have been made
for transportation, with the agreement
that the deputy United States marshals
should not accompany them.
The metropolitans had orders to seize
the steamer Flora. They saw her com
ing in about six P. M., aud marched
down to the wharf ready to seize her
and 8 tart for St. Martinsville, xit the
captain of the Flora, seeing them on the
wharf, immediately turned his boat and
went in another direction. Many citi
zens were on the wharf and enjoyed the
discomfiture of the metropolitans.

Hon. George II. Williams. Attorner Gen
eral, Washington :
I received Warrants for the arrest of
De Blanch and ten other leaders of the
insurrectionary organization at St. Mar
tin's. The accused being in arms, and
with a strong force, I deemed it best to
at once execute the process to prevent
the further effusion of blood, and there
fore made a requisite upon Gen. Emory
for a military posse of forty men and
two officers, which were promptly furn
ished. Chief Dcpufy; Marshal De Klyne left
with the posse, arriving at Brashear City
yesterday noon by rail. The regular
line of boats of trico, Mine & Tupper,
carrying the United States mails to St.
Martin, were withdrawn before the arri
val of Deputy Marshal De Klyne,. and
laid np at Franklin, and the proprietors
refuse the use of the boats. There is no
other water transportation available there
but may be supplied in a short time
through General Emory.

Insurance Against Accidents.
The Supreme Court of the United
States has solemnly decided that walking
is not riding. It is clearly established
by the judgment of the highest court of
the Union , that a predestran is not a
traveler in a public or private convey
ance. It seems odd that sucb a decision
sbould be necessary, but it was prelim'
inary to anotner. wiucn is tbat where a
man Las Lis life insured, by an accident
insurance company, agaiust the perils of

accident insurance company refused tb

ground that he was not in a public or

assaulted, and the Supreme Court affirms
that view. Now, if this gentleman bad
