Dashed About on a Portion or the
Tile Northern.papers of Saturday come ladea
witta the narrowing details of the loss ot tbe
. steamer Metis, in Long Island Sound, on
Thursday night, th? main facts of which have
been reported by telegraph. We take the fol?
lowing account from the New York World :
Not usually carrying a large number of pas?
sengers the Metis was exceptionally crowded
on Thursday Dight. All the.state-rooms were
occupied, and arrangements were made to ac?
commodate sleepers In the saloon. There
were on board one hundred and four passen?
gers, olx or seven children, whose names were
not registered, and the usual crew ot lorty
flre officers and men, making the total num?
ber on the boat one hundred and fifty-five or
one hundred and flltyrslx. Though the weath?
er was of the most threatening character the
Metis held ber course as usual, till at three
o'clock Friday morning she sighted and pass?
ed Gitt Island light, ten miles south of New
London. The wind, , which had been beary
all tbe evening, bad now
INCREASED TO A GALE
from the southeast and the air was filled with
driving rain and spray. It was impossible for
the eye to penetrate a ship's length Into the
almost palpable darkness which surrounded
her, and, taking every precaution against acci?
dent, the engines were slowed down, and the
boat kept slowly on,her way, buffeting the
beary, seas which rolled on by Montauk in the
.rery teeth of the gale. At b&lf-past three the
Melia was, tn tbe opinion of her captain, four
miles souita of Watch Hill. Ten minnies later
tbe lights of a BOboooer tinier easy sall, stand?
ing tcp the eastward, were seen ahead. The
MetiB "held her way, steering to clear the
stranger, v, hen just before they met he luffed
up, apparently to cross her bow, and
THE VESSELS CAME TOGETHER,
the schooD er's bowsprit strlklng-the propeller
on the port quarter forty feet abaft the stern,
and snapping like a pipe stem. The ressels
bang together a moment and then surged
apart, all the schooner's head gear handing
from th? bow. -Capt al a Burton at once sent
the mate and engineer to ascertain the extent
of the propeller's injury, but in the Intense
darkness the external damage was lnrlslbie,
and haring satisfied themselres that she was
nuking no water, they reported that the In
Jury was Inconsiderable, and the Metis kept
on her way, the schooner haring already dis?
appeared; taut in fliteen minutes the engineer
rostaed Into the pilot-house and announced tbe
terrible fact that the vessel was leaking badly.
The captain at once ordered her
HEADED FOR THE RHODE ISLAND SHORE,
then five miles .or more away, and, sounding
a general alarm in the saloons, apprised all the
passengers of their danger. Xnere waa little
confusion, most ol those on board havi ng been
awakened by the shock of the collision, and
many of them being already dressed. There
waa an unusually large number ol life-pre?
servers on board, and the llfe-saring appa?
ratus, of the propeller seems to bare been re?
markably completo: Every one was Inrested
wltfra- preserver, and the anxious throng then
watted for tbe end. It was not long coming.
Twenty m?nales after the leak was discovered
the water bad reached the engine-room and
DROWNED TBE FIRES,
coming in beneath the engines in a way that
Indicated', that tbe Injection pipe bad been
broken la the collision. Tne firemen and en?
gineer stayed at their posts till the water had
reached their waists, and then joined the crew
the meantime, the propeller's four boats were
safely launched and were speedily filled, many
clinging to their Bides by toe lite-lines, but by
far ttae majority of tbe passengers were on the
upper deck, in a few minutes more and the
boll of tbe vessel, weighed down by the heavy
machinery, was submerged and sunk; butas
lt did so, the buoy .nt freight on the main
deck, principally cotton, aided by the beary
sea running, lifted the hurricane deck com?
pletely off, and, wonderful to relate, left it
float lng ai m cst Intact. On this were gathered

knee deep in the water In the vain attempt to
protect themselreB from a pelting raia and a
sea which repeatedly swept the half-submerged
raft. Por hours they drifted so. The fury ol
the waves Increased, and several were swept
from the deck, two of whom were lost. Men
voluble at first In their terror were gradually
chilled Into despair. The
FRENZY OF THE WOMEN
subsided witta exhaustion, and when' tbe
sombre light of morning dawned it was upon
a pitiable sight. But it brought cheer to those
Jost snatched from death, for not two miles
away was tbe gray beach of Watch HUI, and
on ft evidences that the disaster was known
and aid was coming. But between the raft
an anne shore, which was that sweeping east
from the light-house and at the foot ol the
bills on which the hotels stand, a tremendous
sea was rolling, taking the bottom a quarter
of a mlle from the beach, and rushing in Im?
mense breakers one hundred feet above IIB
usual limit. Here, hali a mlle from land, the
sea-going qualities of the rait received a
severer test than any lt had yet experienced,
and It yielded. Scarcely had lt got within the
limitai Abe bolling maelstrom, which raged
and foamed along the entire shore, iban it
shivered aid shook, and In a, moment was ia
pieces. Two wares swept orer lr, and those
who had found it means ot safety thus far
STRUGGLING IN TOE SURF.
All had preservers, and some were expert
swimmers, and these struck out boldly for the
.hore. Ta tbe meantime the place was alive,
and the .beach was lined wita tbe guests of
tha" numerous hotels and residents, most of
the lauer old fishermen and wreckers; they
knew what to do, and did lt; and as those bul?
leting the winds were swept in on the crest of
a billow, Btrosg hands were stretched to them,
and before the treacherous undertow could
Book them hack, they were pulled high aud
dry on the sand. The scenes here were as;
thrilling as any erer limned In history or flo-'
lion, and. to all but the helpless crowd on
shore heartrending. Cyrus Butler, of Provi?

One gentleman bore an elderly lady gately to
land, dashed In to rescue another, was caught

point Of death. Other scenes there were
where men ware swept within reach of the
bands outstretched to sare them, and were
hurried away by the receding ware UH when
at length they were secured It was with the
vital spark extinct- Many cf those who were
finally saved were with
hythe drifting debris of the wreck, and at
death's door from exhaustion, for by this lime
it was eight o'clock, and the mornlog was
raw and cnlii. Physicians bad been summon?
ed icom neighboring iowas, and medical ap?
pliances of every kind were jat hand. Those
washed ashore were, carried at once to ttae
not?is, where every possible attention was
paid them, and the people fairly earned a
right to the warmest encomiums for their
benerolence and kindness. Unfortunately,
however, for many aid came too late-ex?
haustion and exposure hart done their work,
and several who were brought ashore alive
died ai ter being taken to tbe hotels. The

i danger, it was very late when ? retired, J
it appeared but a short time after when I \
soddenly wakened by the halt of the steam
My first thought was that we were agrou
and felt certain, judging lrom the state of
the weather when I retired from the de
that our position was very precarious, a
Immediately made preparations to dev
some means to save myself. When I react
the upper deck I heard we had collided w
a bchooner, and though I looked In all dir
tlons lor the vessel I failed to see it.
THE SCENE OK BOARD
at this time was heartrending. Women vt
children dinning to their night-dresses ste
paralyzed with tear and were scarcely able
move; others who were on deck swoot
away and remained where they had fall
while many of the remaining women a
children ran around the deck screaming a
crying. Huebauds were looking for tb
wive?, while little children, who, in the exel
ment, had become separated from their ]
rents, ran from room lo room In search
them, and crying as though their hearts wot
break. It would be Impossible for me to <
scribe the minute details of that lew mlnut
but, for my part, as long as I live I shall nei
.forget lr. A number of persons on board, a
who, I am sorry to say, call themselves me
were not only greedy but beanie
Heedless of the iwomen and cblldn
who were already panic-stricken, th
thought only ol themselves, and to
possession of two and three life-pi
servers, together with many other articl
which would help save their lives. The 1
suit wa?, that scarcely any of the females
board were left any means to keep them frc
being lost. In less than two minutes arter i
,collision the main deck waa crowded, ai
some uf the passengers who imagined th
the steamer was sinking, were preparing
Jump overboard, preferring to risk their liv
in this way than walt until the vessel w
going dowo. The captain, however, did co
slderoble to allay the paulo by assuring t
people that no Injury was done to the steai
er, and directed the pilot to go In search
i the schooner. This was at hi teen mlnut
past lour A. M. We sailed around In a eire
for fully fifteen minutes, but could see not
mg that resembled a schooner. Just then tl
Stoologton passed us, but receiving ass
ranees' that we were all right they continue
on their way.
-- Tn r. SKVUltir rAKlO. .
Scarcely had they left UB than the cry was rai
ed that we were filling with water, and almo
simultaneously with the report the fires wei
extinguished. This intelligence tended to di
moralize all on board, and a repetition of tl
first see DOS were re-enacted, but In a moi
-frightful and terrible manner. The wome
and many of the men appeared to have n
control over their movements and refused i
make any effort to Bave themselves except ti
crowding on the hurricane deck. Immediate
ly three boats were lowered from, the davit!
but by some accident one was swamped. T
be candid, I would not venture my mein an
of ibo boats, and it was a miracle that all wei
not Bunk as soon AS they touched the watei
for when the second report of our sinking ws
announced a very heavy sea was runnloi
which threatened destruction even t
a vessel. Strange as it now occurs t
i me, I never, during the whole time, los
my presence of mind, and to this fae
alone do I ascribe my escape. Not being abl
to procure a life-preserver, I stood ready t
launch a bale of colton, to which I intendei
to hang until I was picked up. Every mlnut
showed that the vessel was sinking lower ant
lowi-r. and those on board stood Bpeechlea
awaiting their late. The poor women, wh*
huddled together on the hurricane deck
scarcely uttered a word, while their cblldrei
.stood by their side seemingly incapable o
vlewiog the situation in Its true lieht, conti
dent that no harm would befall them whlU
their mothers were by their side. Slowly bm
surely the steamer kept settling down, and
when within a few luches of the main deck
bale after bale of cotton was flung overboard
followed by two and three men who clung tc
each of them. All of a sudden the vessel
A FINAL PLUNGE,
a cry of agony rent the air, and the hull sank
to the bottom, leaving the hurricane deck or
?the surface. How the two portions of the
vessel became detached lt ls Impossible to tell
but one thing ls certain, lt was the only
means which saved the lives of any who were
on board, AB near as I can remember I was
about one hour and a half In the water, and
made many efforts to guido my bate In the
direction of the hurricane deck, which waa
riding the waves like OR oki whal? boat.
While I was conjecturing on my chances ol
escape the deck suddenly neared me, and 1
crlfd for help. One ot the men threw me a
rope, which I caught, and was pulled aboard
lin a perfeotly exhausted condition. Tbe rafi
.at the time of its separation from the hull
was some five miles lrom shore, but the tide
kept running it Into the beach. We could see
tne: people lined along the shore, and felt con
ll J JUL that what remained of our party were
'saved. This belief was greatly strength en ed
.as we noticed that the people who were In the
two boats were rescued. When within a short
'distance ot shore we could see
THE IMMENSE BREAKERS
which were rolllog towards the beach, but
gave it but a passing thought, thinking that
when we had survived tue 'sea of a lew hours
previous no possible accident could befall us
when so near shore. Scarcely had we reach?
ed the first swell than the frail rafe was sud?
denly pitched edgewise and broken into frag?
ments. Women and children were forelLly
thrown Into the sea, and Immediacy sank. It
was at this time and nlace thaine female
portion ot the passengers were lost, as well as
a majority of the men. The splinters of the
deck tell In all directions, and large pieces of
lumber were hurled with terrible loree in all
quarters. Many of those blt by the flying mis?
siles were disabled, aod with the other vic?
tims were unable to save themselves. Alter
.many difficult efforts I managed to reach the
shore, but was so exhausted, in addition to
being struck on the leg by a piece or the
.wreck, that I was unable to Bland up.
Shortly after I came on shore a bale- of
colton drifted In with two men clinging
to lt; both were resoued, bot one ?
them Immediately expired. When all hope
was given up os to resculBg the vessel the offi?
cers placed at ?ae disposal of those on board
every facility to insure their safety. How?
ever, I think that If the captain had used bet?
ter Judgment, by examining the damage im?
mediately after the collision, and started lor
land, the loss of life would have been less. As
.well as 1 could understand from reports cir?
culated, the captain detailed the engineer to
examine the Injury. The engineer failed to
do so, and the consequence was that when all
ibeileved themselves safe
; THE KIRKS WERE SUDDENLY EXTINGUISHED,
and we were tossed about in the sea like a. log
?Of wood. Supposing that our fires were out
and that the vessel had sustained no Injury lt
cculd scarcely live In such a Bea as waa run
nirig at the time. Consequently you can
judge of our poor chances of escape with a
large hole la the aide of the boat, which woe
shipping water at an enormous rate.
Statement of Another Survivor.
A gentleman gave the lol lo wing statement
of the scenes and Incidents that came under
his notice, as well as his own miraculous ]
escape: The weather, though raining heavily,
was not uniavorable, and, though a rather I
fresh breeze was experienced when a short [
time out, it was expected that the wind would
remain as it was and not Increase into a vio?
lent gile, as lt alterwards proved. As the
wind increased, the waves were laehod
into Intense fury, and the veasel rocked
to and fro and rose and fell like a mere play?
thing in the hands of the elements. It was im?
possible for many of the passengers to sleep.
About midnight the gale seemed to Increase,
until about half-past three, when It reached
Its height. I was then lying in my berth, un?
able to Bleep, when suddenly a violent shock
was experienced, and we keeled sllghly on
the starboard side. My first Impression was
that the vessel had struck on a rock, and I
Immediately hastened on deck, when I ascer?
tained th ita schooner, name unknown, and
bound eastward, bad struck us, as was sup?
posed, with her Jlbbooin amidships and im?
mediately below water mark. I was inform?
ed that no serious damage had been done,
and immediately started for my cabin for the
purpose ot putting on my pants, being previ?
ously wrapped In my night clothes. I was
gone about live minutes, and returned to the
deck, where I fonnd a number ol the passen?
They were greatly excited, but their fews
were quieted when a vessel, afterwards ascer?
tained to be the Stonington, came alongside
and proffered assistance, which was refused,
the captain stating that no damage ol any con?
sequence had occurred. I again returned to
my cabin, when the noise and excitement that
ensued beggars description. The creaking of |
the timbers, the waveB washing completely
over me, fairly stunned me. I then felt that
the vessel was rapidly Blnklng, when sudden?
ly the waves dashed against the vessel, a por?
tion of which sunk while the balance was net
afloat In every direction. For a moment I
was stunned, then I found myself floating J
J in the water with no sight of land. On either
side were the debris of the vessel; here a door,
aud there a portion of the fcabin. Men,
women and children were clinging to differ?
ent portions of tho wreck, and I made exhaust-1
ed attempts to reach the hurricane-deck that |
waa floating rapidly, and on every side of
which human heines held for dear lire My
efforts proved fruitless, and almost exhausted
with my endeavors I glanced about me lor a
piece of the wreck to which I could cling.
Wubin ten feet of me I discovered a bale of j
I colton, and succeeded In reaching lt, com- j
pletely fagged ont wilh my exertions. For
howlong a lime I floated I do not know, but
I had been on the bales a considerable period,
when a man whom I did not know also suc?
ceeded In reaching II I saw that he was
XS A DTIXG CONDITION,
and I helped him lo a sluing position; but ore
long the breakers that were dashing over us
with considerable fury swept him off, and I did
notsee him again. I afterwards ascertained that
when the Metis foundered she was four miles
from shore. I drifted into the beach, Imme
[ ('.lately behind the hurricane deck,from which
I could see human beings continually swept
by the remorseless breakers. Now a child,
and immediately followed a woman. The ma
! Jorlty of those ou the deck appeared to be
. women and children. When I first attempted
lo reach lt every available spot was occupied,
but comparatively lew had energy sufficient
lo keep them lrom going overboard. How I
escaped ls to me a decided mystery. Several
tl me J I gave myself up for lost, and never for
a moment did I believe that I would ever
I reach the shore alive. The waves dashed
I over me relentlessly, and each one I expected
would sweep me into the water. The scene
after the wreck separated was one that I hope
I may never again witness. The roar ol the
waters could not drown the piteous wan of I
in? ohiidron aud tire agonizing cries ot the
mothers.. I could see men, women and chil?
STRUGGLING IN THE WATER
without either life-preserver or anything to
assist them in reaching land, while almost
within their reach were visible individuals
with two, and In some instances even three,
Ute-preservers, who would not grant one of
them to the people drowning before their very
eyes. I saw a man with two ma?tresse*, and
yet within tea feet of bim was a mother and
child hauling for life with the elements.
Tnose in whose power it was to offer succor
abstained from rendering any assistance;
while the unfortunates, wno were themselves
without assistance, endeavored to render aid
to others. I witnessed many exhibitions' of
magnanimity that were truly touching. One
young man voluntarily surrendered a piece of
debris to which he was clinging to a mother
and her babe, and, alter relieving himself of
his hold, disappeared never to rise again.
None of us saved any baggage, and ihe cloth?
ing I now wear are the only, things I saved
from Ihe wreck, lt was almost four o'clock
when the boat struck. I received severe con?

HOMICIDE IN EDGEFIELD COUNTY.
[From the Columbia Union.]
By a passenger from Aiktn we learn of a
.homicide that occurred at Pine House, Edge
Held County, on the line of the Charlotte,
Columbia and Augusta Railroad, on Saturday
last. From the statements made Reappears
that there had existed tor a long time ill-feel?
ing between two men In that vicinity, and
open violence .had been attempted. On Sa?
turday one of the men attacked the station?
master ?it Pine House with a long knife; the
attacked party sought refuge in blB bouse,
when the attacking party followed bim knife
lu hand: The staiion-master then shot him
dead on the spot, and 1B reported to ha ve
surrendered himself to the proper authorities.
We were unable to learn the name ol either
of the parties on account of the late hour at
which the information was communicated.
A. Reminiscence of John 91. Daniel-Illa
L?ve In Tarin-The Chango In the
MoncureD. Conway ls writing some very
gossipy and Interesting letters from the
French watering places to the Cincinnati
Commercial. The letter hom which we make
an extract ls written from Trouville, and the
distinguished American re erred to ls the late
John M. Daniel, the editor and proprietor of
the Richmond Examiner The letter says:
Madam* George Sand han gone to Cabourg,
where she promenade* the sands all day with
her grand-children. There is any amount of
oholce watering-places in the neighborhood,
from the most ornate.like Trouville, io the most
primitive, Ike Yport. Silnt Andresse ls this
year very popular. The most Inlerestlng res?
ident of Saint Andresse was Madame Pauline
de NoirfoDtaiue, who died lhere last week.
Twentj-flve years ago her drawing-room in
Paris was noted for its soirees, attended by
the most eminent people in that metropolis.
Sae was hospitable to persons of all shades ol
politics, but her particular frlenda were
among the Republicans, who alterward
cauBed the events of 1848. M. Louis Blanc
and Marshal Vaillant lhere met in 1864. But
her salon was particularly noted as that In
which the famous clairvoyant Alexis began
his seances when he proluced such a pro?
found sensation in Paris. I do not kuow
whether Madame de Nolrfontaine was one of
the Innumerable convert I who flocked ta
Alexis, and who dtd nothing tor the rest of
their lives but try to galvanize or msgnetlze
themselves and oilier people; but her house
was the chief centre lrom which Drat spread
the psychological epldemt ; which bus since
survived luso many shades. Hbe was long
the personal friend of Qieen Christina, who
bad a marine villa at Saint Adresse, and to be
near ber built, several years ago, the pretty
chalet in which she has Just died.
Very different associations are aroused by
the sight of that brilliant Italian Countes?,
whom I have already mentioned aa being at
Trouville, but whom I will now call Madame
ONE OF THE MOST DISTINGUISHED NAHES
that the world has ever known-but a name
which covers as little moral principle as any in
recent history-she has for years glittered In
every -court of Europe. A : lust she gained
such notoriety that some of the courts began
to close doors against her. It was rainer
curions that one of the first LO exclude Mad
ume R. (then Madame B.) lrom its receptions
should be that whose moral odor ls the very
worst In Europe-that of Italy. But so lt was,
that, some years ago, whim a grand ball was
to be given at the palaoe n Turin, tho beauty
Bat in her villa expecting the invitation, which
did not arrive. Her most intimate friend
I ther<\ according to Italian gossip, was a young
American, who, alter hnvlne achieved ihe
I reputation of an Intellectual phenomenon,
streaming through the southern skies with a
brllllanlly-edlted newspaper lor his comet
tall, had Deen made charge d'affaires at Turin.
Thlaj oung minister was a mau of genius and
a sch olary bu t he was v .-ry erratic. He had
A DOZES DUELS IN HIS li ATI VE VIRGINIA,
and politically he was a fire-eater.. Yeti, who
knew him well through many years*, knew
ibat he hud a true and tender heart deep be?
neath the proud and formidable exterior he
chose to put lorward In Hie eyes of the world.
She who bas since bi como Madame R.
lound out the same, and managed to be?
come the object of as deep a passion as
man ever felt for woman. Despite the
severe exclusion of '.he Italian Court,
all the more because of lr. the Intri?
gante resolved that to Un t ball she would go,
and she invoked the aid of her lover, the
American charge, to tal:e her there. Take
her be did. He asked ad Invitation for ber;
lt was refused. Nevertheless, when the ball
was at Its height, in wilked the American
with the ostracised, beaut F leaning on his arm,
ano dressed ID a way mat might have excluded
her even had her character been less the sub?
ject of gossip. In ihe gr?at day when tho sea
gives up Its dead the correspondence which i
this event occasioned bntween the virtuous
John B. Floyd and the charge at Turin, and
between tho "Turinese ard Washington Gov?
ernments, may see the light. The row was.
tremendous, though lt wes carried on In dip?
lomatic circles, and the public heard only a
lillie of lt. A gentleman who saw the lady
now Madam R.-on that occasion declared to
me that she was the most beuuitfui being he
ever beheld, and filled his idea of a Roman
goddess. I remembered the remark when I
saw her at tho last carnal in Rome, dashing
along the Corso In a fine equipase, gally
dressed, and throwing bonbons and flowers lo
the crowd. The masses did homage to her
beauty. Her husband, oue of the most emi?
nent Italian statesmen, stood, I remember,
with us In the crowd, and as he smoked his
elgar looked with a half comical, half cynical
expression upon the sensation his brilliant
wile was causing.
But when 1 met her tho other evening, In a
room for the first time, I wondered where the
beauty had fled. I saw a woman, not, In?
deed, without some attractions, but with a
great deal of boldness and a strong inclina?
tion to be fat. Her complexion was artistic,
and she had that most painful expression of a
woman clutching at her vanished youth. May
lt not be that the ancients, lu what they n?r?
rale of faithless, unchaste vestals buried alive,
cunningly signified the tendency of luxurious
ladles to become entombed in heavy ma-ses
of flesh ? At any rate, Madame R. seems io
be here at Trouville a person whom I am glad
my poor dead Southern friend cannot look
upon. He took her to the great ball; he offen?
ded the court and offended his own govern?
ment by ll; he escaped a recall by the skin of
his teeth; all for her-and she
FLITTED AWAY FROM HIM LIKE A BUTTERFLY
at the first call of some martinet in scarlet and
gold. Hither, thither, from flower to flower,
she passes, knowing ve y well that In the
courts of Europe virtue 1s a light cloud, while
beauty and wealth and a grund name are
keys which will unlock any courts. Sue be?
came by marriage the first lady, officially, in
Italy, next lo the Que?n-this woman who
had to cling io the skirts ol' her American
lover lo get to a court ball. Meanwhile the
American no sooner hears that the war be?
tween North and South, which he had loog
expected, had begun, than ho throws down
with pcorn the commission which no longer
represents bis beloved Virginia, and hurries
back to Join in the struggle. . Life, indeed,
had now but few attractions. for bim. He
had lived ages In his years, though they were
not yet tony In number. He ls soon wounded
while serving on the stuff of aa einloent
Confederate general; but it is only the arm
thal is In ruins. He recovers enough to re?
turn again lo the paper which had once been
the dally se us?t lou of the South. But he has j
an eye keon enough to see the coils of fate
closing around his beloved South.
THAT BROKE HIS HEART.
When Hie army of the Union was drawing
near to Richmond he wrote, I remember, au
editorial in which occurred the words, "If
the Federal armies ever enter Richmond, I
those who shall be unfortunate enough lo live
to see that day," &c Tue day came when the
Federal army did enter Rtcnmond, and at
; the dawn of that day were closed ia death
ihe eyes of the. most gifted man the South
has produced in recent times. When In the
brilliant euloon I saw the woman he loved so
long and devotedly, and for whom he braved
the world, I SHW his ?rloomy brow and his
magnificent black eyes "spectrally beside her.
But I should saw lt lui were Bluing beside
her, it must have been lu a very shadowy
way Indeed, not sufficiently pronounced to
Inferiere with the newent flirtation on hand.
But I should remark that the cnuutess of
whom I have been writing ls not Italian by

A. REVIEW OE TBE FIELDS AND TUE
The Woran In St. Paul ?.
Trustworthy Information received in this
city from St. Paul's Parish report the caterpil?
lar as beginning in earnest Its work of de?
struction. The cotton on the White Point
plantation of Colonel James Legare waa eaten
out durlog last week, and considerable de*
vastation had been caused upon the adjoining
plantation ol Mr. James King. Its appearance
had also become general throughout the
Disheartening Prospect of the Yield
Effects of Rust and the Worm.
"An Experienced Observer" sends the fol?
lowing communication to THE NEWS :
This once Important staple crop of South
Carolina, Georgia and Floridals ina peculiar
position at tul.* juncture. Up to the middle of
July, its promise to reward the planters In
quantity per acre set down was more encourag?
ing and hopeful. Tbe fields had been weil
Ulled, and manures freely used; but alas, the
brightest hopes are often doomed to disap?
pointment. An unusually bot summer ana In?
tense burning hot sun, drought in many sec?
tions, diseased the plan), brought on rust
generally, castine off pods and forms; ac?
contrary to the views of many planters, the
devouring caterpillar, in a dry season, made
their appearance In some localities in July,
and now the boll worm is commltUog sad
havoc on the previously Injured crops. Very
many entire fields in Florida and this State
are destroyed, lor when the leaves are eaten
up the vitality of the plant ends, and the
pods dry up. It is Bald that caterpillars have
seldom been known to appear la the Santee
Sea Island region before September 1st. They
made their appearance'there In the cotton on
the 26th ult., and are now along the whole
seaboard, and all over Florida.
Examining the crop statement of the put
four veers it shows the sea Island crpp for
1868-'G9 was 17,956 bags, 18G9-'70 26,606 bags,
1870-'7119,594 bags and 1871-'72 16,500 bags.
From various sources, letters and statements,
that have come under our notice, the Injury
at this time sustained by the crop is put at
one-quarter, one-third, one-half and two
thirds. Doubtless a lew favored localities
will yield average crops. The yield was fair
In this State, and very short io Florida and
Georgia. Most of the Bea island cultivation in
Georgia has been abandoned, and all tbrougn
the lower Inland counties ol Southern
Georala, and In portions of Florida, where
long staple cotton has hitherto been grown,
the plantera are this season producing short
. cotton instead.
In former times eminently experienced sea
Island planters used to say that heavy crops
of cotton could not be expected unless the for?
ward condition of the plant rendered the com?
mencement of picking necessary during the
end ot July. Notwithstanding tbe premature
ripening this season from a forced state of the
crop and bursting of the pods, picking was
not earlier than August 16. Most planters
know that blooms of cotton appearing from
10th to 15th ol September ripen before frost.
Expectations from blooms must fall in this
crop, for they will be cut off by the caterpillar,
-as they have never ceased depredations when
cetrecai. unless checked by a severe storm or
Large estimates in July, and as early as
June, were Bent to spinners and dealers in
sea Island in England and France that this
crop was likely lo aggregate 25,000 bags, and
lt ls evident that the trade have been active
on this unwise prediction of supply from tbe
extremely limited Bales In Liverpool for
months past, together with the use of other
Inferior substitutes loronr sea islandB.
Can any one have sufficient light at this
time from any data to say how short this de?
plorably injured crop ls to foot up, and ls it
possible that" moneyed means can be furnished
to plant another year a crop of even moderate
Ilavages or the Worn In Florida.
The following ls an abstract of a letter from
a Charleston factor in Florida:
I regret to say tbat the flourishing reports of
the Florida sea island crop heretofore cur?
rent prove to be totally unfounded. The last
four weeks have made a very serious change
in the aspeot of affairs. A protracted drought
caused the cotton to shed heavily; the rust
has also appeared lu many places. To finish
the matter, the worm ls In full force on every
patch of cotton In the Stale. Tbe bottom
crop is good and will be of fine quality; the
middle very light, as all the young bolls, with
.the entire top crop, are already eaten up.
The fields look more like December than Au?
gust, as brown and bare of green aa lt fire had
swept through them. I have travelled Irom
falatka to Gainesville via Ocala, Mlcanopy,
(the garden ol East Florida,) and on every
place that I have seen or beard from the work
ls already accomplished. The farmers are
very despondent, the most hopeful limit the
crop to a half. It certainly cannot exceed that
of last year, but it will be of much better
Other and later advices are as follows:
MICANOPY. August 28.
Our crops would have been fine bad lt not
been for the rust and worms. It ls the gen?
eral opinion that a half crop will be the ex?
tent. We have lost a great deal by the shed?
GAINESVILLE, August 30.
The caterpillars have eaten out all the cot?
ton crops in this section, consequently we
cannot count on more than half a crop. My
crop at one time promised twenty-five bales
sea Island cotton and twenty bales short cot?
ton, and 1 will be glad to make half the
