The c?ptala o? the Atlantic attributes the
disaster to the speed of the vessel, which
must have made more than niue knots an
hour to get so far out of ber course. He seems
overwhelmed with sorrow, and said to a re?
porter: "To think that, while hundreds ol
men were saved, every woman should have
perished-lt's horrible ! Had I been able to
save even one woman, I could bear the disas?
ter, but to lose all, lt is terrible, terrible P He
seemed to tully realize that the world would
hold him to a strict acoouot.
The latest aocouats report four hundred
and thirteen saved and five hundred and
sixty lost, including three hundred and
fifty women and children. The cargo
consisted of fashionable dry goods, amount?
ing in value to ball a million dollar?.

tinua to be received. All the women, who
were asleep when the ship struck, were
drowned In their berths. The heavy sea con
Btantly poured over the vessel and Oiled hert J
and prevented them from escaping to the
decs. Some t?males, wbo showed great pres?
ence ol mind and appreciation ol the disaster,
only reached the deck to be washed overboard
Into the loaming trough of the sea. Soon
after, six men on the Bhore wrote in huge let?
ters on a blackboard, the words, "Cheer up;
the boats are coming to your assistance/ J
which announcement was received with hearty [
cheers from the ship. After au awful sus?
pense of half an hour, some men were seen
on the Island., carrying a boa), over the rocks;
tblaggas soon launched and took off three
boat loads from the outlaying wreck. While
rescuing these men, Captain Williams and the
passengers called Lud ly for the boat's crew to
come to the ship and take them off, as they
were in most Immiient danger. The captain
cried, "J wtK jrioe five hundred dollars for
every boat load rescued." Tad boat afterwards
made for the veesei.and took off two loads.
Half an hour later another boat came and res?
cued many of those clinging to the rigging.

reaching the shore by a i overline, carried
from the vessel by himself an organized crew,

THE GOLD MARKET.
Upward Tendency In Prices - Wall
Street on Saturday.
(From the New York Times ]
Trade was lively enough in ihe Gold Boom
on Saturday, In spite of the drenching rain,
which kept people lo-doors'lor the best part ol
the day, and pelted down so mercilessly that
only those who had business engagements of
the most urgent nature ventured outside.
Throughout the day the price ot gold steadily
advanced-the "bull" clique taking all that
was offered, confldenttl me situation. There
were heavv sales made, but the confidence of
the "bears" had been considerably shaken by
their dl*comuture, which had been chronic tor
weeks past, so they gradually gave up the un?
equal contest. At 10 o'clock. A. M.. the hour of
opening, gild stood at 116}. Hali an hour
alter it advanced ? per ceul. At ll o'clock lt
fell back, under heavy offerings, to HG*.
Then it rallied, and (luring the next thirty
minutes gained * per oent. At noon larne
sales caused lt to mil back an j. At 12} F. M.
me ruling price w .s H6j; at 1 o'clock the in?
dicator marked 116}; at ll lt wa? a i belter;
at 2 o'clock it reached 117; at 2} it stood at
116?. and Anally -closed at 117. Stocks were
dun, and the prevailing topic of conversation
In the offices down town was the advauce in
the price ol gold. Merchants who borrowed
heavily to ;>ay duties upon their imports,
ascertaining trom the gold indicators In their
establishments the condition ol the market,
in many instances called personally upon
their bankers and brokers, and nettled at the
ruling rates, fearing that procrastination
would only result lu heavier losses. The
Heaviest importers, however, still hold out,
and express a d?terminai ton lo Hgnt ll out on
"this Hue lt lt takes all summer.'r Bets were
offered by the "bulls" throughout the day with
few takers, that gold will reach 126 inside ol
si.xiy days, and 130 before September.
The already startling advance in the price
has not been the result of a Bingle day or
week, on the part ol a gaug ol gold and stock
speculators, but has been brought about in
great part by a combination of circumstances
which no clique, however powerlui, could
In conversation with severa! of the promi?
nent operators uu Saturday, and at the Filth
avenue Hotel lust evening, ihe following rea?
sons were assigned to a Times reporter for
the present rise In gold, and for a prospective
advance: That three or four parties own
nearly all the gold In the country, and can
loree "up ihe price whenever they choose; that
the treasury at this momeot would be unable
to-sell gold and break acorner if lt was at
tempted, as there ls only gold enough al its
disposal to take care of the Interest on the
Un-ted Stales bonds and retain a fund for
contingencies; that the Importations of
goods are unprecedented, and an Immense
sum ls required by the merchants to pay the
dulles every week; thal exports are altogether
too light to cause a flow ot specie toward the
United Stales, and that not only does all of
the gold produced leave us, but ulso a large
portion of the reserve which ls held in Wall
street by Anglo-American banking houses, by
the BUD treasury, and at various pulnts
throughout the country by different parties.
During the past year the volume of specie
has decreased about $47,000,000, leaving the
entire couoiry with something like $66,000,000
of gold, while in 1858 lt possessed over
Our Washington dispatches stale, however,
thal ihe government will sell $8.000,000 gold
during the coming month, so these deductions
The London Times has also sounded a note
of warning io regard to the system of ex?
change which prevails at present between this
country and Europe, by which speculation Is
fostered and our finances ure placed upon an
Insecure basis. It ls estimated that by means
ol borrowed sterling exchange we are already
lu debt to the other side many millions of dol?
lars, and it seems probable lrom the recent
action of the Bank ol England that we may
be called upon to pay up these loans which
have been too oiteo renewed. The market
for American securities, too, In Europe, bas
been Injured by the bad faith of railway cor?
porations, which have defaulted In the inter?
est on their hands, and this source of a gold
supply has been lu a great measure closed.
These reasons, as well as many others,
are adduced by the bull clique lu support ol
their position, and at present lt seems prob?
able that i ney will force np the price of gold
to a still higher dgure. What measures their
opponents may resort to In ihe hopes of
breaking the "corner" have not yet transpir?

LIFE WITHOUT WINTER.
afra. Stowe's Glowing Picture ot the
Climate of Florida.
Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe writes from her
winter retreat In Florida to the Christian
We hear that the hotels and boarding houses
on the river are beginning to be thronged,
and no wonder. What is the use ol a glorious
Union when one doesn't use Its choice ol cli?
mates ? Snail people buy rocky bits of land
on the shores ol the Atlantic and put up
nouses ai the cost o? ten and twenties ol thou?
sands for two mouths' summer bathing and
neglect the better chance of a winter home
lor aix of the severe months ot the year ?
Every year as we come down we count new
houses rising on the shore ot the St. John's
attesting ihe progress of commonsense In
this direction. Mauy a delicate consumptive,
many a dyspeptic aud nervous invalid might
be saved to u long life of enjoyment merely
by dropping winter out of the category of
thingH to be endured. As to the expense, two
hundred dollars invested in an acre ot land, a
simple Inexpensive cottage, would be speedi?
ly made up In me cost ot luel ior a Northern
winier. One lives here eo simply-the re?
quirements of drtss and society are so lew,
mar, even counting travelling expenses, lt Is
a saving to be here, lt healtn and happiness
are left out ol the question. The life of North?
ern cities ls over-stimulated, and we really
never know what lt ls till we come here.
Then the whole hot, busy, anxious, running,
racing, breathless North lades away Into the
most graceful, pearly tints of blue distance.
We feel almost as souls may that have
passed the great river and turn to look back
on tne shores o? lite. Allis peace. A thous?
and anxieties drop like a mantle. Voices of
hoi haste and mad hurry die In the distance.
Slanders, gossips, scandals are things ot the
past. Do the red birds understand them ? Not.
one. Will the mocking-bird care for them ?
Not he. When we write a great yellow but
teifly, a living alr-blosBom is gossiping
'round the gilded wires ol Ihe bird cage.
There Tulip and Opal and Rainbow are chip?
pering each omer, and a bright-yellow canary
is giving lessons to the three In operatic Bing?
ing. What can be more beautiful, more
dream-like, than the life ol a butterfly ? Does
lt remember when lt was a poor crawling
worm? With such ecelacy let us hope some
poor, faithful soulp, who have crawled over
one little damp spot oi earth, laithful over a
few things, we burst forth when death breaks
their prison. Fancy the poor soul who never
did anything but make shirts for five cents a
piece released and floating about In such ec
stacy of Hie as this.

[FROM orrs OWN CORRKSPONDKNT.]
Nsw TOBE, Marca 31.
Tbere is really more la tbe new party move?
ment than the '-organe" are willing to admit.
The report lrom Washington ls that Governor
Hendricks, ot Indiana, during his recent visit
there, sounded not only Democrats bat Re?
publicans ol prominence also, as to the ad?
visability of creating a new party, combining
the opposition to the present administration.
As to the truth of this statement respecting
the foremost Democratic statesmen of the
West, I have no positive knowledge, bat I do
know that a number o? aetlve Democrats In
this city have a movement of the same kind in
contemplation, and that they have the en?
couragement both of Liberal Republicans and
Republicans who voted for Grant and Dix last
Tbe plea these Democrats make In favor of
a new party Is that the recent Btale and Con?
gressional elections la New Hampshire de?
monstrate that the Democratic party bas ab?
solutely lost Its vitality. With the Credit Mo?
bilier disclosures and the salary grab in their
favor, they were yet nuable to beat a party with
whlcb most honest Republicans are sincerely
disgusted. In tbe election about to come off
In connecticut, the Democrats not only have
the recent scandals to assist them, but also
the dissatisfaction of the New Haven Repub?
licans with theil1 own State ticker, and yet lt
begins to look now as If they will be unable lo
recover the State. The apatby of the dead
seem.i to be upon them. The new party advo?
cates eay that lt the weak and rotten Repub?
lican organization can defeat the Democracy
under such circumstances, it is useless to hope
for the overthrow of Giantism under the lime
They propose the formation of a party which
shall be wide enough to take In the Democrats
on ihe one hand, and on the other the Repub?
licans who are dissatisfied with their own
party, but who bave a prejudice which they
cannot well conquer against the Democratic
name. They propose tbe construction of a
platform upon which ali sincere wishers for
relorm may stand, and which will bave for its
leading features opposition to tbe growing ex?
actions of raliway and other monopolies,
genuine civil service reform, free trade, local
self-government-in short, war upon all tbe
abuses which are sapping the foundation of
the republic, and which the administration ot
Grant either openly or covertly sanctions and
It is hbld by these party manufacturers that
li such representative men as Governor Hen?
dricks, Oblef Justice Chase, Governor Sey?
mour, Senator Trumbull, Senator Schurz, Gov?
ernor Dix, Charles Francis Adams, Henry L.
Dawes, Judge Jere Black, General Hawley,
Senator Gordon, of Georgia, Senator Bayard,
Senator Anthony and Oolouei Forney wonld
act together in signing a call for a popular
convention to set the ball rolling, that the
movement would have dignity and strength
eaough from the start to TnBure Its success.
The result ot the Connecticut election next
week will, doubtless, have a controlling influ?
ence on the future ot national parties.
The interest In the Goodrich murder mys?
tery In Brooklyn has by no means abated. A
touching story has been woven from the cir
oumstanoes in the life of tbe woman who lb
detained by the police on tbe cbarge of being
accessory to the murder ot Mr. Goodrlcb. It
ls ascertained that she is a working woman; a
shirtmaker and a widow. She Is esteemed by
her employers as a first-rate hand, and by hard
and almost Incessant labor she has been able
to earn the sum of three dollars and a half a
week. From this miserable pittance she was
expected to clothe, feed and pay house rent
for a crippled father and Imbecile mother and
two little obildren. Of conree she could not
do ll. Charles Goodrich paid ber bouse rent
and gave her money besides. Probably she
never let bim know how poor she really was,
for tear be would repulse her. Unfortunately
lhere are thousands of working women In the
same awlul condition lo our over-crowded
cities. Who bas the right, asks a local Journal,
to cast a stone at one ol them. If she barters a
oaress for a loaf of bread to feed her hungry
Lucette Meyers, the woman whose crnel
lite baa thus been bared to tbe public eye, is
supposed to bave been wiih Goodrich the
; night, or rather the morning, of the murder.
The latest theory la that one of ber other ad?
mirers, a Jealous Spaniard, tracked her to tbe
house In Brooklyn, and finding her with
Goodrlcb, killed him. The frightened woman
washed the blood from his face, and com?
posed bis limbs decently and fled. It is to be
hoped that the true cause of the murder will
be discovered, for among the most painful in?
cidents of the affair ls the disposition of some
radically crooked-minded people to hint that
the victim's blood was shed by bis own
broiber, the Hon. William W. Goodrich. Tbis
gentleman bad the misfortune, which might
have happened to any ot us, to be the first lo
find the body of the murdered man. There
are fools who shake heads mysteriously at this
Brother Talmadge. of the . Brooklyn Taber?
nacle, has created u fresh scandal by perform?
ing a wedding ceremony on the stage of the
Brooklyn Academy of Music, before a gaping
audience, at fifty cents a head. What made
lt woree was that the bride and bridegroom,
and lhe attendant train ol bridesmaids and
groomsmen, were habited In "old folk's" cos?
tume; the men In long-tailed coats and knee
breeches, and the women In coal-scuttle bon?
nets and buBtleless gowns. Tae show was for
the benefit of the new Tabernacle building
lund, and doubtless the reverend gentleman
Justified his course by the excuse that the end
sanctified the means. But the secular press
is handling bim without gloves for "bur?
lesquing a sacred ceremony," and "bringing
the marriage rite down to the level of a
I was at the evening services of Tal madge's
Church yesterday. He uses the Brooklyn
Academy morning and evening every Sunday,
until his new place of worship ls finished. The
van building was crowded lrom the parquette
io the dome by a very promiscuous, ana con?
sidering tbe place, a very orderly audience.
Dr. Talmadge eat on the stage lo Iront of the
curtain, which was down. On one Bide there
was a small parlor organ, over whioh Morgan,
lhe celebrated organist, presided. The report?
ers sat al tables In the orchestra. The audi?
ence was furnished with printed copies of the
hymns to.be sung. The services consisted of
the usual einging and praytng and a sermon.
The latter was the feature, of course. Any
one who heard lt wonld not be surprised at
Talmadga's power lo attract the masses. His
style Is eminently sensational. He ' indulges
in tragic starts and elocutionary pyrotechnics,
compared to which Beecher eccentricities are
tameness itself. But bis figures aud illustra?
tions are warningly original; be runs over with
anecdote serious and humorous, and his emo?
tional poner is wonderful. He had half the
audience In tears over a picture ol country
home life. Then he bad everybody laughing
at his deOant declaration that If any more
couples were warning to be married In revo?
lutionary costume he was ready to "put them
out of misery."
On dit that the new Tribune building ls to
be au experiment in architecture, eleven sto?
ries high, and crowned with a colossal statue
of Horace Greeley; steam elevators are to
make an easy and rapid communication be?
tween ibe ground and each story, and tbe
problem to be decided ls whether lawyers,
brokers and persons using single rooms for
busloess purposes eau be induced to go nigher
thfn a fourth floor. The proximity of th?
Tribune building to the new posioffice and tbe
courts will render it desirable lor this class of
tenant B. It ls further reported that tbe new
building will cost three hundred thousand dol?
lars, and be built of brick, with while marble
facings. It will have a Mansard roof, which
ls to be Incombustible, of conree.
