A Detailed Account of the Disaster

Ont the Offender.
NEW YORE, April 2.
The wreck of the White Star Line steamship
Atlantic 1B the sole topic of conversation this
morning, and In London the excitement ts
dually great. A foll investigation is demand?
ed, In order that the responsibility may be
fixed npon Ibe proper peri on. No trustworlby
details of ibe disaster bave been received, but
the loss of life ls quite as great as at first re?
A special to the New York Times, from Hal?
ifax, regarding tbe wreck of ibe White Star
steamship Atlantic, says: ls underwood
that over seven hundred unfortunate passen
gers out of one thousand on board-all women
and children-were drowned. Tbe first Inti?
mation received of the wreck was a rumor
that an ocean steamer had gone ashore down
the coast, and tbat several lives had been
lost. It was next ascertained that the Allan
tis had attempted lo make the port
of Halifax harbor on ber way from Liv?
erpool to New York in consequence
of shortness of coal. A heavy gale
prevailed at the time, so that she neared thu
coast in hope of sighting the light on Lamb's
Island. The vessel was resistleesly carried
before the wind, by the strong current tbat
always prevails in lhat locality, right on to
the Bbore, causing her to become a total
wreck. Late last evening further and
fresher details were obtained, aud lt ap?
pears lhere were about filly cabin passen
gers aboard, togeiber with over nine hun?
dred Bteerage passengers ; so that with the
crew, the total number of souls aboard
was over one thousand. During the pas?
sage across, the steamer had encountered
very heavy weather, but all was well UH
yesterday about twelve o'clock. On Monday
night the captain and officers believed they .
were making straight for Limb's L'gh'. but j.
two boara later the vessel struck. The scene I
that moment was terrible beyond description. J
The steamer bumped upon the rocks two or j
three times as the heavy waves lilted her, j
showlngher doom to be sealed. Scarcely bad 1
the first shock been felt when the passengers .
rushed irom their berths in ihe cabin and 8
steerage, on the main deck, when at- H
tempts were made to cut away the boats, and j
they were soon filled wiih men and women. It (
was too late, however, for the steamer sud- (
denly careened to leeward, falling over on I
her beam ends and almost immediately sink?
ing. The boats are mentioned as being
swamped and going down with her. So close
to the shore was the steamer when abe struck
that several sailors succeeded in swimming
ashore with a line, alter they found them?
selves thrown into the sea. Fortunately the
fishermen living on the coast were on ihe
lookout, and they assisted the third officer
and his companions in hauling In a rope by
means of the halyards they had so bravely
carried ashore. By means ot this line, some
two hundred and fifty men succeeded lo get?
ting safely to land."
The friends of ihe pa?seugers of the di?
lated ship throng the offices of the agents ot
the company, but no consolation can be given
Two more agents ot the White Star Llae
have been sent to ibe assistance of ibe sur?
The officers of the company think that the dis?
aster was caused by mistaking the lights, and
t|ey attach no blame to ihe captain or officers.
Willlama, the captain, had been In the Trans?
atlantic trade for about twelve yeats, and was
connected with the Williams & (Jul?n line
before the White Star Line wa~, organlzaci.
The agent of the company believes that ibe
Atlantic's hull ls Bot broken, at- none of tbe
cargo lb known to have floated.
The report that Bussell Sturgls, of Boston,
and Franklin W. Smith were aboard of the fi
Atlantic ls untrue.. ?

HALIFAX, April 2. n
A steerage passenger makes the following t
statement : w
I turned into my berth about eleven o'clock w
oOgMonday night. The night was dark but J ll
starlight, and the weather fine. I knew l
ship was going into Halilax fur coal. The li
thing I remembered was that two bells (o
o'clock) siruck. 1 then went to eleep, au<
woke up with a shock, and remarked to i
mate there goes the anchor. I thought,
course, we were safe In Halifax harbor; bi
as soon as she made a second plunge, I sal
"Good Gjd ! she's ashore." With thal we g
up and dressed. The companion-way w
thronged with the lower steerage passeugei
Seeing that the sea was commencing to brei
over the ship, and lower down the cot
paoion-way, I got aa many as possit)
to lake to the bunks and hold by the Ire
stanchions, 'lhere we remained until alli
daylight. Thc ship bad fallen over, and tl
steerage wr.s full o? water, one side on
being out ol IL Our only chance ol escaf
was through the ports. A number of mei
probably twenty, got out through the por
to the side ol the vessel. I remained unt
ill who were alive were out. Tnere were
?rreat iruny drowned in their bunks, ac
a the i s were drowned while trying to reac
.he ports. I got out toronga the port, an
held last to the side of the ship tor about tw
lours, aod then went to the shore by the Hi
?oe. Waen I left the ship, there were still
jreat many persons in the rigging."

he Captain's Statement of tbe Cause
and Manner of the Dina ot er-Noble
Conduct of un Old Fisherman-ct,r
inf for O10 S arv! TOTS .
NEW YOEE. April 2-10 P. M.
The following Is the captain's statement :
e sailed from Liverpool on March 20th. Du?
ng the first part ot the passage we had fa.
irable weather and easterly winds. On the
.tb, 25th and 26: h we experienced heavy
luthwest and westerly gales, which brought
ie ship down to one hundred and eighteen
iles a day. On the 31stof March the engl
iet'd report showed but about one hundred
id twenty-seven tons ot coal on board. We
ere then 460 miles east ot Sandy Hook, wlih
ie wind southwest and a high westerly swell
id falling barometer; ship steaming only
?hi knole per hour. I considered the risk
io great to push on, "as we might lind our
?Ives, In the event of a gale, shut out from
ny port ot supply, and so decided to bear up for
ialitax. At 1 P. M. on the 31st, Sambro
iland was distant one hundred and seventy
Hies, the ship's speed varying irom eight te
welve knots per hour; wind south, with rain,
rhich veered to westward at 8 P. M.,
'1th clear weather. At midnight I judged
ie ship to have made one hundred
leit tbe deck und wed ID to ibe char:-room
leaviug orders about tbe lookout, and to
me know lt they saw an jibing, and to call
at three A. M, Intending thea to put
ship's head to the southward and await day
light. My first lotlmallon or the caiuttroph
was Ibe striking ol ihe ship on Marr'a Island
and remaining lhere last; ihe sea Immediately
swepl away all the port boats. The officers
went to their stations and commenced clear
lng away the weather boals. Rockels were
fired by the second o ill jer. Bet?re Ihe boats
could be oleared, only ten minutes having
elapsed, the ship keeled heavily to port, ren
dering the starboard boats useless. Seeing
no help could be got from ibe boats, I got the
passengers Into the rigging and outside rails
and encouraged them to go forward, where
the ship was highest and less exposed to ibe
water. The third officer, Mr. Brady, and
Quartermasters Owens and Sparkman
by thia time having established com
mnnicatlon with the outlying rocks
about forty yards distant, by means
a line, got four olher lines to the rock, along
which about two hundred people passed. Be
tween the rock and the shore was a passage
one hundred yards wide. The rope was sue
cessfnlly passed across this, by which means
about tidy got to land, though many were
drowned in the attempt. At 6 A. M , the first
boat appeared from the Island, but she was
too small to be of any assistance. Through
the exertions of Mr. Brady the islanders were
aroused, and by 8 A. M. three larger bo t'
came to our assistance. By their efforts, all
ibat remained on the side of the ship and on
the rock were landed In safety, and cared for
by a poor fUherm in named Clancy and his
daughter. During tbe day the survivors,
the number ot four hundred and twenty-nine
were drafted off to various houses scattered
about; Besldent Magistrate E. Ryan rendering
valuable assistance. The chief officer having
got up the mizzen rigging the sea cut off his
retreat. He stood for six hours by a woman
who had been placed In the rigging. The sea
was too high to attempt bis rescue. At three
P. M. a clergyman, the Rev. Mr. Ancient, sue
ceeded In getting him a line and getting him
off. Many of the passengers (saloon and
steerage) died in ihe rigging from ibe cold
Among the number was tbe purser of the
ship. Before the boats went out I placed two
ladles in the lifeboat, but finding the boat use
les?. I carried them tu the main rigging, where
I left them, and went aft to encourage others
lo go forward on the side o? the ship. At this
Juncture ihe boilers exploded, and the boat
rolled over to leeward. The ship at this time
being on her beam ends and finding my
self useless there, I went to take the
ladies forward, but fouod them gone
nor did I see them afterwards. Many passen
?era at this time could not be stimulated to
any eff >tt to save the m selves, but lay In the
rigging and died from fright and exposure,
remained on the side encouraging, helping
and directing until about fifteen were landed
when, finding that my bands and legs were
becoming useless, I left the ship, two other
boats being close to aid and embark
the remainder. On reaching tbe shore
I dispatched Mr. Brady, the third of?
ficer, off to Halifax, across the coun
try to telegraph the news of the dis?
aster and to obtain assistance. Mr. Mor
row. ihe Cunard line agent, promptly re
sponded and sent two steamers with provl
slons to convey the survivors lo Halifax
where they will be cared (or and forwarded to
New York on ibe first opportunity, in charge
ot the first and iourlh officers, the third o fa
cer and lour men being left at ibe Island to
care for the dead as they come ashore. Cap?
tain S. Hendon Dever has received provl
slonal authority as to s?lvagor of cirgo and
materials. The second officer was lost with
No. 30 life-boat.
Value of tbe Atlantic and Cargo-The
Wreckers to go to Work.
Dispatches have been sent lo the officers of
the wrecking company at H ?Utax, Instructing
them to sen I their vessels at once to the scene
of ihe Atlantic disaster, for the purpose of
saving anything belonging to the Atlantic
that can be found. The Atlantic, togetbe
with her cargo, Is valued at eight hundred
and fifty thousand dollars. The loss wi ll be
partly covered by Insurance.

Half Per Cent, a Day for Call Loans
Anguish of the Borrowing Public.
Nsw YORE, March 2.
The financial situation is not quite so dis
tressing fri borrowers as on yesterday, but,
nevertheless, ls stringent enough. At the

ness was transacted during the morning
boura. Daring ts* afternoon there was a
temporary let up in the market, and the rate
declined to j p. r cent, with some few loans at
1-16 even to 7 per cent, gold, but late In the
day the demand lor money Increased once
more. Long alter 3 o'clock there were street
dealings at Exchange was dull and
heavy early lu me day, owing to the contiu
ued stringency In money, but at the close the
market was firmer in tone. Prime bankers
sold 7? i7}. Gold opened ul 17J, and declined to

17$. L')an8 were from 6 to 3-61 lor carrying.
Goveruraeutfl were dull aud pi ices were
slightly betier than at the close last night.
State bonds very quiet, with lillie change In

vben the company determined, in 1858, to
B8ne their prelerred stock, lt was resolved lo

.mount of their second mortgage bonds In
hehundsof trustees for its security; hence,
t is not a distinct liability-but rather a sub

amount of second mortgage bonds. As boin
bear the same rate of interest, the conversion
of one into the other has been consented to at
the option ot their respective holders-some
desiring the preferred stock, because of Its
being regiuered and transferable only on the
company's books; while others prefer the
bonds, for the gi ester convenience which
they afford, in the collection ot interest, facl'

may thus be varied, but the aggregate ol both

Our mol Ive power, consisting of lt locomo?
tives, ls all In running order, with the excep?
tion of one now In our shops undergoing a
thorough repair. During the year, one of
light capacity, after a lengthened service, was
condemned as not worth that cost, while two
others from the Rhode Island Works have
been added to our supply.
Our rolling stock consists of 14 first and
second-class passenger coaches, 5 mail and
baggage cars, 73 box, and 54 platform and 16
gravel cars-all of which, under the usual
current repair, are in serviceable order. The
whole equipment of the road should be in?

only for our increasing local business, but
also for that opened to us at Columbia and

For further Information on these points,
you are respectfully referred to the accom?

The fact of having passed through the year
without any accident, or casualty of a serious
nature, entitles the subordinate officers and

In conclusion, we regret having to lnlorm
you that two important suits, Involving the li?
ability of the company to taxation by the State

cided adversely to it by the Supreme Court of j
the United States.
The company claimed Its exemption lrom
taxation under a special act of the Legislature
to that effect, passed lu the year 1855; bul lt
was contended that ihls exemption was only
held by us, subject lo a right of repeal, by
any subsequent Legislature, In conformity
with ihe provisions of an act passed in the
year 1841, and which right the Legislature ex?
ercised In the year 1868. We bave ihe above

A BRILLIANT RECEPTION.
SOUTHERNHOSPITALITIES TO NORTH?
A Welcome to Ex-Governor Seymour
and William Callen Bryant, at the
One ol tbe most notable social events of the
Charleston season was the brilliant pur ty given
last evening at the mansion of Colonel Bich?
ard Lathers, on the South Battery, in honor of
the Hon. Horatio Seymour, ex Governor of
New York, and the Hon. William Cullen Bryant,
tbe venerable editor of the New York Eve?
ning Post, but better known and more en?
deared to the people ol America as their loved
"Poet or tbe Woods." Tbe cards or invitation
to inls "At Home" of Colonel and Mrs. La?
thers had been issued for some days, and the
party assembled In response was a most select
and fashlo?able assemblage, Including lue
most prominent gentlemen of the city, with
their ladle?, as well as a cumber ol military
guests from the garrison at the Citadel.
1 be earlier hours of the evening were occu?
pied with a delightful conversazione In the
elegant drawing-room of the mansion, and at
about eleven o'clock an invitation from the
host summoned the party to the parlor;,
where supper had been prepared. After this
repast, Colonel Luthers introduced Mr. S. Y.
Tupper, president of the Chamber of Com?
merce, who gracefully extended a formal wel?
come to the principal guests ol the evening,
and expressed the obligations of the whole
Southern people lo the venerated poet who had
embalmed in tbe amber of poetry the daring
deeds of "Marlon's Men," a song which
bad been snag in many a Southern bivouac,
and had warmed the hearts of soldier? at
many a Confederate campfire. He concluded
wlih the sentiment which would be echoed
by every guest and by every (rue heart ol the
American people, that the noble author of
Thanatopsls might, "when his summons came
to j oin the innumerable caravan" of pilgrims
?rom this world to the world of epirlts, de?
part "like one who wraps the drapery ot his
couch about bim, and lies down lo pleasant
Mr. Bryant responded In a brief but beauti?
ful and touching aiidress. He modestly waived
the compliments that had been addressed lo
him, and thanked the preceding speaker,
and, through him, the assembled guests, tor
the kind and cordial welcome extended to
him. Turning from that subject, however,
he said that la his walks through
Charleston he bad not (ailed to note
how, by the silent processes of Nature, the
wrecks and devastations of the war were
being covered and effaced by growths of the
fresh spring time, and be could not help hop
ins and believing lhat In the same way and by
similar Inscrutable and divine evolutions of
the will of Providence, the moral wounds of
the war would be healed and greened over
with new, healthy-giving growths of moral,
sentiments and Impulses, which would make
the picture fairer even iban it was before the
rude shocks of war had marred its beauty. He
trusted and believed that the chivalrous,
knightly, generous race wblch had made
Southern society what it was In happier days
before the war, preserved even In Its over?
throw ibe vitality whtca would produce from
Ibe fallen trunk new shoots of life and vigor,
which would restore, ia more than pristine
beauly, the lair fabric of the Southern Com?
The host next called upon the Hon. J. B.
Campbell for a sentiment, and he responded
in a graceful past-cenllal address, proposing
the health of the Hon. Horatio Seymour,
whoso public services he enumerated, and
whose presence In Charleston he warmly wel?
Governor Seymour responded lo the ap?
plause of this sentiment by thanking the
ladles aud gentlemen for their kind welcome,
and he made a graceful, appropriate and elo?
quent address, In which be a.luded to the
evident signs ol returning material prosperity
observed throughout ibe Southern Slates,
and nowhere in a more marked degree than
In Charleston, and gratefully mention?
ed the warm welcome and kindly ex?
pressions ot esteem which had been
ci ven not only to himself, but to tbe
hundreds of Northern people who had been
sojourners in the South during the past few
years. The South, he said, bad now passed
th rouen, and was rapidly emerging from, the
difficulties and embarrassments wblch had
lollowed In the wake of war, and her future
promised to be bright and glorious, and it re?
mained to be seen whether the South had
not, in the long run, come better out ol the
conflict than tim Norib. There, lhere bad
been less of material disaster immediately
following the war, but Us events bad
enkindled a slplrlt of gigantic specu?
lations, unsafe ventures and o perver
bion ol business principles to the spirit Of
gambling on a tremendous scale, so that it
was painful to contemplate the possible re?
sult in the next few years. On the whole, be
heartily congratulated the gentlemen of the
Soutb, and especially those or the City by the
Sea, upon the energy which they bad display?
ed, under Ihe most disadvantageous circum?
stances, and ihe evidences of their returning
material prosperity, which were everywhere
Colonel Lathers next proposed the health
of ex-Goveruor W. D. Porter, who responded
in an elegant and finished address, tull of
dignity and reverence for the traditions and
memories or the past and hopeful auguries
for the iuture of the State.
The remainder ot the evening was pleasantly
spent by the guests in the intercharge ot
social courtesies, and the parly repaired to
their carriages and iheir homes at a late hour,
charmed with the elegant hospitality of their
host and hostess, and retaining pleasant recip?
rocal recollections ol the Northern guests and

A gentleman from Orangeburg Courthouse
Informs the Columbia Herald tbata serious
fracas occurred lhere on Saturday laBt. From
his account of the affray the following ls con?
densed : It appears that ou sales-day a man
named Coleman, from Barnfield County, while
passing along lite sidewalk, mel a tran named
Charles B. Green, a colored citizen, and un?
dertook to Jostle him one side, and finally
abused him oy :hreats and indecent expres?
sions. Green replied that he had as good a
right as any one io the walks, and snould
maintain bis right. The parties, however,
separated without any serious damage being
done. Coleman viBited Orangeburg again on
Saturday, and the quarrel was reuewed in
Ibe store of Mr. Me roney, refiling in Cole?
man's shooting Green, ihe ball striking the
cap of ihe knee and passing down ibe leg.
lufllcilng a painful wound, and also cut him
from the ear to ibe chin with a knife. At ibis
outrage the colored citizens became incensed,
secured the perpetrator of lr, and took him
beiore a trial Justice, who bound bim over io
appear at the next term of ihe General Ses?

battery, and assault with Intent to kill.
