Loss of the. Arctic.
Tie steamship Arctic, with 226 passen
gors, exclusive of *hildren, 175 employers, a
valuable cargo, and. heavy mail, is lost. Of
the mnre than four hundred souls who left
Liverpool on the 20th ult., full of hope, gaye
ty and health, many returning from a Euro
pean tour sof pleasure, only thirty-two are
known to have been saved, and certaialy
not more than one. hundred can, by any pos
sibilicv, have escaped a watery grave.
In addition to all this, another large stea
mer, freighted with hundreds of human be
ingzs, has, in all pmrobability, tiet a like fate.
Trhe details of the horrible disaster are as
On Wednesday, September 27, precisely
at 1 o'clock M., in a dense fog, we came
in contact with a bark-rigged iron propeller,
with black hull, salmon colored botton, lead
colored pofip and boats and black pipe.
Sae was hound eastward, and had all sail
set, with a strong, fair wind. The speed of
the Arctic at the time was about thirteen
knots an hour. The shock to us appeared
slight, but the damage to the other vessel
was frightful. Capt. Luce instantly ordered
the quarter boats cleared away,and the chief
mate, boatswain and three sailors went to
her relief: before other boats left, the order
was couit-rmianded. The Arctic then de
scribed a circle twice round the wreek, du
ring which time I caught a glimpze of more
than two hundred people clustered on her
At this juncture it was first ascertained
that we had sustained injury, and the water
was pouring in -it our bows. When the first
officer came alongside to report the ca;t tm
was unable to take him up, but headed N.
N. W., in the hope of making hIand. Our
position on the previous day, at 12 o'clock,
was latitude 48 39, longitude 45 27. We
had run about three hundred and ten miles
fron the time of this observation until the
moment of collision, and were supposed to
lie forty miles from Cape Race. The pumps
were vigorously worked, and an anehor
chLin thrown overboard ; but, in spite of all
exertion, the engines stopped, and the water
entinguished the flies.
Four of the five other life boats, believed
to have been well provisioned, containing
the engineers. sailors, a few passengers And
all the oflicers, except the captain and third
mate, left the ship at an early stage. The
-.ty of the passengers were working at
ups, some' firing the signal guns, and
aunching spars, under the direction
ain Luce and Mr. Dorian, the third

1Ier to facilitate this latter work the
I last boat was lowered. Dorian,

Heaven forbidl that I should ever witness
such another scene. We however picked

loaded boat, without oars, thmolepinis, food
or drink, avoiditig with difficulty thme frag

Without dwelling upon our miseries, alle
vinted much by the consciousness tnat we
had eindeauvored to do our duty to our fellow
men, sutiice it to say that at 5 o'cloek oii
theiafternmoon of thet 28th we espied a sail,
and raised a handkerchief to attract atten
tion. We were successful. With the rude
substitute for oars which we had conistructed
during the day by lhuhing planiks to capstan
bars, with a view of attemptinmg to gain land
when the sea subsidled, we pulled towards
the ship. On our way wve passed the rein

The bark proved to be the [laron, of St.

Huron's crew, re-turiied to the raft atnd irescu

had clung to the spars. [he states that after
the steamship sunk lie counted seventy-two
men and four women on the raft, but at 81
o'clock lie wias the only oiie alive. In the
morning two bodies wvere beside him, much
eaten by fishes, and at the time lie saw our
boat he wsas on the point of voluntarily
dropping into the sea to end his agony.

contaiined a bottle of water, some cheese
and a lady's garment.
By the humane captain of the Huron
and ~Mr. Wellington Cameron, a son of the
owiier, we were received with great kinid
ness, our wounds dressed, fires kindled, and
food and cleothing provided in abundance.
During the iiight of the 28th, Capt. Wall
long out extra lights, fired rockets, and kept
a horn blowing, in hopes of falling in with
the remainder of the boats. But his endeav
ors were fruitless. On the evening of the
29th he spoke the ship Lebanon, Cap:t. Story

TuE Southern Patriot regrets that we are off again on
a sectional scent, af-er having indicated, a year or

the Patriot's attention to the fact that, a year or two
since. there was a ray of hope that the South might
yet have jnstice generously meted ont to her by thi
peop!e of the North ; and under the inspiration ofthat
hope we dii express gratification, and not only ex

But since the beginning of this disastrotis year, 185,
the hope has been dissipated like vapor before a Bis

paintic and unflinching Administration upon out
side, we have seen a set of measures (which, aecord
ing to Senator DOUGLASS's own showing, did little o1
ntthing for the slave States and slavery) met with a
storm of itndianation that threatens to submerge all
pariies and fractions of parties at the North into one
grand and undivided host, whose only motto shail be
" Eninity to the South and her institutions, now and
foirever." We ask the Patriot, and those who agree
with him, to answer candidly if this is not abundant

Under these circumstances, we are at a loss to see
what offence azainst patrioti-sm or prudence we have
committed in raising the cry of " Southe.rners, to the

hand together ton in self-defence! This course doet
not necesearily involve Disunion. It may, perchance,

THE COTTON CEOP.
A- 3issisippi correspondent of the Mobile
Advertiser, gives the folljwiig views and esti
inntes in relation to the cotton crop:
Dear Sir: In compliance with my protnie
mde to you, I now give you tuy views of the
crops or thie country west of the Bigby river.
'rho crop of cotton of Lnuderdale, Newton,
Neshobee, Winston and Chickasaw., will be less
by one-third, than was produced last year in the
s:imie cniities. Oi the ere-k tottons the yield
wi1I he nearer an :v-rage, but the ridges burnt

be a frrectini Ies thnn last. vear, the eastern part
of the county yicIling'*nmore, and the west, and
I-speridily the -onith-west, less. Crops of corn
are betl r in iltis county than last year. Since
lhe 10th of Angnst there has been no bloom
on the cotton. and utsuily you know, blooms to
tihe 10h of St-pt ember ire expreled t inake cot

bo!s, too, is light. Ii Noxthee and Lowndes

firner year, and ir. Monroe ciounty more, espe
eially on the west side or the river; but the crop
is all ihrht (in the eastern side in Monro-e, Lown
des, P'ickens and Greene. The crop of Sumpter
is decidedly lighter than the former one, in fact,
except in very stnall districts in that county,
not much over half a fair nverage yield will be
githered. Siice the fodder is partly pulled (ts
ii. was nearly burnt up on the stalk) the generil

CuITNSESE ItGRATiON TO CALJFoRmA.:-The -
Suit Fr.ueiseo papers speak of the immense
Chintese immtnigrationt to that port as one of the
,reatest evils to the State. The immigration is
ti fact nothitng but the carrying out of the Coolie
system. Wealthy comp.tnies in Cnina are con.
eerned in shippting their poor countrymen as a
speculation. They are furni.hed with all they
require to go into the uining busintess, and at
return they give their employers a certain quota
of theirgainis which is pAid their agent in San
Francisco. -The worst feature of the system LA
that the Chinees never remlain in the country or
become assimilated to its populationa. They,
come over in biordes, g-ther wht is a cimpetence
in their country, and taen return ta China to be
replaced by fresh arrivals who will pursue-the
same pracess. Of eirse, this inigration lat
the reverse of beneficial to the State. as it does
nat. poermanahently increase its reslources, wialth
or indt.,trv, but, on tie contrary, constantly
tends to inoaverislh it.-Baltimore American.
