'SAN FRANCISCO, July 20.-The
whaling bark Milo has arrived, in
twenty-eight days fr^n ?the Arctic,
with the crews of several whalers de?
stroyed by the pirate Shenandoah, last
month. Thc whalers Edward Casey, i
Hector, Abigail, Euphrates, William
Thompson, Thornton, Jireh Swift,
and the Susan and Abigail were cap?
tured and most of them burned. Th?
Milo was bonded for the purpose of
taking off the crews.

destruction of the whalers, and would
probably destroy another fleet num?
bering sixty vessels.
The Shenandoah coaled last at Mel?
bourne. She was manned by English
and Scotch- sailors. Some of the
captured whalemen joined her.
