BURMNG OF THE AMERICA.
AN EIX WITNESS' THRILLING AC
COUiil OF THE DISASTER.
Men, Women and Children Barned and
Droivntil-Htrolc Conduct of Captain
Donne-The Terrible Straggles for
[From the San Francisco Bulletin.]
YOKOHAMA, JAFAN, August 26.
The America reached the harbor of Yoko- j
hama safely and in good trim at seven o'clock
A. M. Sa?urday, August 24, 1872, within an
hour of the time she was due. Soon after she
was fastened to her buoy I went ashore for a
day or two until the branch steamer for
Shanghae should sall. The same evening I
went aboard the America for a few minutes,
and while there learned that duriog the day
the Yokohama and Shanghai freights, the
malla, and all of the treasure, excepting
$400,000, had been transferred, and that she
wonid depart for Hong Kong on the Monday
following. Everything was quiet and orderly
as usual." All the officers, with one exception,
wera on board; a few of the passengers and a
goodly number of visitors were lhere also. I
felt my trunKp, containing everything I bad
with me excepting the linen suit of clothes I
wore, locked up lu the stateroom which I had
occupied, little dreaming ot the fearful calam?
ity which so soon followed.
Shortly before midnight, I waa aroused by
an alarm of fire. I rose hastily, and, without
stopping to dress looked out upon the harbor.
Tbe night was calm as death. The Bay of
Yeddo lay before me still aoU tranquil; a dense
cloud ot smoke, rising above the harbor like
a mountain spectre, lowering and darkening
Ute face and light of a tull moon, and the j
naked masts of the different ships lying at an?
chor, deeply tinged with a lurid flame just ]
burstlog through the cabin of the America,
constituted, the malu outlines of the scene
disclosed by the conflagration as I first be?
Nearly all tbe officers and employees of the
ship were there, tnantiilly disputing the pro- j
gress of the flames. Foremost among them
was Captain Doane, who, all honor to him,
stayed by his ship In her downfall, till every
man had forsaken her, and every passenger
was gone or dead. Then, and not until then,
he threw himself over the ship's bows into the
bay to share the fortune and chances of the
THE ANXIETY OF THE CHINAMEN.
The America, at the time of the fire, lay at her
buoy.aboutahall mlle ?rom the hatoba (wharf )
As soon as the. alarm was given, all the san
pana (native boats) left the hatoba, where
they were anchored for the night, and flocked
around the burning ship. Every sanpan was
gone when I reached the hatoba. and lt was
Impossible for me to get nearer the ahlp. I
was sufficiently close, however, to marte very j
distinctly, by the light of the Are, everything
that passed on the America's upper deck. Th?*
Ch?nese passengers were thoroughly aroused
by tbls time, and, Cnlnaman like, each one had
his box or bundle of effects on bis back er in
bis arms, determined to save that or die In
the attempt. Many of them, I am sorry to
Bay, lost their lives, beyond doubt, In ibis fool?
ish at tem pt to save a trifling bundle of old
clothes, seeing that no hopes now remained
of saving the ship, an attempt was made to let I
the Chinese down to the boats below by a [
gangway on the port aide. The terror-stricken
Chinese rushed pell-mell upon the gangway,
each with his package of wordly goods, until
the ladder, overburdened with the great
weight, fell with a heavy crash, precipitating 1
over sixty Chinamen into tbe water. Many of
these were rescued, and quite a number were [
drowned. The passage to tbe gangway on
the other side of the ship by this time was en?
tirely out off by tbe flames; nothing remained,
thereiore, for those remaining on board (over
one hundred and fifty In number) but to Jump
overboard from the forward deck Into the
water, a distance of fully twenty-five feet, or j
to remsin and be consumed by fire.
THE SCENE ON THE FORWARD DECK.
The scene on the forward deck of the burn-1
lng sblp at this moment beggars description.
The Americans, few in number compared with
the whole, were working wlih all the energy
of desperation to lower the life-boats; but be?
fore they could be swung on the davits all
hands were driven forward by the fi?mes. The ?
poor Chinese were now rushing hither and
thither across tbe hurricane deck, screaming
and throwing their arms In tbe air most fran?
tically. Now picking up their bundles, now
dropping them again, then seizing them once
more j and throwing themselves headlong
overboard, box In arms. By this time all the
upper deck over the dining saloon was lalrly
consumed, and the fire had climbed the main?
mast to the yards. The smoke-stack, thirty
two feet in circumference and torty feet above
the deck, was red hot to Ita uppermost ex?
treme, and shooting from lt waa a bright red
tongue of fire, hissing and snapping and
fairly leaping to tbe sky. The heat by this ,
time had become unbearable anywhere ex-j
cept on the extreme forward deck. Yery few
persons were there now. All the Chinese had
pone overboard and were struggling lu the
water below. Around the buoy the drowning
wretches were so thick that there was
nowhere close room for another head. The
struggling of those poor creatures around the
buoy was touching. The stronger man held
his place, the weaker was overborne and
drowned. The 'fear of an explosion or the
falling ot the ship's giant masts bad now j
* drives every boat tro m near the wreck.
THE DEATH CIRCLE.
Those wno had Jumped Into the water and
the few who had still to Jump must therefore
now swim through the death circle, within the
boundary of which no boat could venture. It
waa at this fearful crisis that Capt. Doane,
having flooded the magazines, and duding j
that every OHO else had fled, plunged over the
ship's, bows, and fell paralyzed In the water.
Bra venman, overcome wirn almost superhuman
efforts to eave his ship, his proud spirit cowed
and broken at the loss of the vet y apple of his
eye. Unable lo use his legs, he sank and
rose, and sank again. Oh, ls there no hand to
reach ont and Bave onr gallant commander ?
Yes, thank God ! Just oe he was sinking tor
the last lime the friendly hand of Capt. Wil?
liams seized bimi by the collar and rescued him
from a watery grave.
About this time a very painful thing occur?
red, which I deem worthy of hole. There J
were a lew beef cattle on board, and quite a
number of pigs, sheep, turkeys and chickens.
The cries ol distress from these poor, unfortu?
nate animal?, which were distinctly heard on
shore, above the roar of the conflagration
was painfully touching. Poor thlng9, they
had thus far escaped the butcher knife only to
meet death with a thousand fold more terrors.
TBT-? PERSONAL ADVENTURES.
The personal adventures ol those who es?
caped would make a volume ot thrilling in- ?
teresL One ot the cabin boys had two thous?
and dollars In silver which he of course tried
to save. It ls needless to say what became of
him. Another Chinaman actually jumped
overboard with his box ot clothes, ana clung
to it until picked up. A European gentleman
told me that, upon some one's congratulating
this .man, he coolly remarked that he wan I
"sorry he was not able to Bave his wife, too "
It is a most remarkable characteristic or this
mysterious people-the Chinese-that, in the
presence or danger, they never so far lose
their presence of mind as to forget their bun?
dle o? rags. The humanity whioh Christian?
ized people show, or ought to show, in res?
cuing women and children, and lnnrm per?
sons, in times ot peril, never troubles a China?
man. Their acilons under circumstances ot
this character are to me as mysterious as the
Sphinx Itself. Out of the thirty Chinese wo?
men and children aboard, the most of whom
bad husbands and fathers with them, I ven?
ture to say that not five are saved. Andas
for the poor children, I am credibly informed
that at least a part of them perished In the
flames. Of the one hundred and seventy
seven Chinese passengers. I am also inform?
ed that fully one-third of their number were
AK AMERICAN CONSOL IN BAD LUCE.
Mr. Sheppard, American consul at Tien
Tsin, China, who was on hiB.way to take
charge of his consulate, lost everything be
bad, Including bis Instructions from the gov?
ernment, bis passport, and all his private I
Kpen. This same gentleman and his wife
it everything they had on their trip to China
?bree years ago, by a railroad disaster on the
Union Pacific Railroad at Bryan's Station,
sear Oreen Elver. j
The origin of the Are will probably remain
loraver in doubt. It is generally believed to
have bees caused by one of the Japanese
coolies drooping his pipe of lighted tooacco lu
the ship's bold while the freight was being
taken ont, and that it smouldered there for
many hours, and Anally burst forth Into a
conflagration. Another supposition ls that it
waa caused by spontaneous combustion of the
coal. I am verv much Inclined to the latter
theory, though lt ls not generally accredited
by the ship's officers.
By Sunday morning the whole ol the upper
' decks, the masts, and all the wooden struc
' ture of the ship vere destroyed. She was
burned to the wai er's edge. Her great smoke?
stack, blurred and blackened, the Iron paddle
wheels, and the ponderous walkiog beam,
were still erect. During the afternoon all that
was left of the largest American steamship on
record wa? towed up to the bead of the bay
close to Kaoasama, and late that Sunday eve?
ning, while the little bay waa lashed with the
fury ol a hurricane, just as darkness and night
and storm closed over the scene, the Ameri?
ca, dismantled, bumbled and destroyed, quiet?
ly sank to the bottom of the ocean, as If to
hide her great misfortune from the gaze of |
ber less favored but no longer envious sisters.
