less frightened than the rest, rushed

house, to learn the ca usu of what seen]

made inquiries from the engineers, a

allayed all the alarm of the terr

announcement, or perhaps uneasy as

Fifteen minntes later, and the dea
knell wont raging through the vesi
that the Metis was leaking badly and
news spread like wild-fire. Stato-ro
doors were thrown open and the p
sengers scrambled to the npper deck,
be farthest from the water. It wa
fearful scene. Deok hands rushed
and down, warning passengers to li
to their life-preservers, for the Metis
going down. There were some whom e
the first shook had not awakened,
who, now that the shrieking and hi

Down gradually deeper went the vee

and the waves oamo sweeping over

tr|0d to reach the npper deok-si
succeeded, while some failed and v

were washed far away. A rush
made for the boats, whioh were prom
lowered, and amid the wildest ahri
the terrified passengers made despe
exertions to orowd into them.
Metis had now sunk below her gua
and several persons had jost run
from their berths, only to meet a ti

the entire nnmber of souls, only s
fifty-three remained on the hurri
dook-the olbers had disappeared ia the
darkness. Meanwhile, Captain Burton
and tho officers were behaviug with
commendable coolness, and in compli?
ance with orders, all hands were pro?
vided with life-preservers. At length
tho deck upon whioh stood the terrified
people parted from the hull, owing,
doubtless, to the groat pressure of the
cotton bales, and in a few minutes tho
Metis sank to rise no more-leaving the
floating deok, with its huddled crowd,
to th? mercy of tbe waves. Tho colli?
sion bad taken place at exactly twenty
minutes to 4 o'clock, and about three
quarters of an hour elapsed from that
time to the complete separation of the
deck from the hull of the steamer. It is
; impossible to give any idea of what en?
sued. Bewildered and shuddering at
the surroundings, many at once jumped
off the floating deck and were drowned.
Women clung to their children, resolved
that they should perish with them.
Owing to tho darkness, they could not
make out where they were, and the
awful feeling prevailed that the deck was
drifting out to sea. It was, indeed, a
night of horrors. At length morning
dawned, and tho shore of Watch Hill
was discerned, but the wind had not
abated much, and although by this time
those on deck had made themselves
somewhat secure, fears were entertained
lest the heavy sea then running would
sweep tbem off. Nearer and nearer tbe
floating remnant of the vessel ap?
proached the shore, and finally struck
bottom. This was the signal note, and
in half a dozen seconds the nearly ex
hausted and perishing passenger!
plunged into the surf, to trust ten?ate
The deok soon ofter went to pieces, une
many seized hold of tbe debris and were
swept ashore alive. In one instance, i
lady, with her two children-one undo
each arm-was carried safely througl
the surf. Human beings struggled ic
all directioue. Some were struck lr
floating timbers, and swept sunselos
high upon tbe beach. Others, uuabl

were finally washed ashore in a dyiui
9 P. M.-But few additional portion
lars hove reached this city, to-day, con
corning the sinking of the steamer Motin
off Watch Hill. The stories about th
disaster are very conflicting. Th
steamer Narragansett arrived at this cit
at 9 o'clock, this morning, bringing eev<
ral passengers and three of the dec
hands of the Metis. Some interostin
details were obtained from the offioei
of the Narragansett. There is littl
doubt, apparently, that so fur os tb
collision is concerned, tho blame lit
with the schoouer. The fact that eL
struck the steamer fairly amidBbi]
proves conclusively, in the opinion <
the officers of the Narragansett, that st
was Bailing her wrong oourse. They bi
lieve that the schooner, after strikic
the steamer and burying her bowsprit i
her side, slewed around and widened tl
rent, allowing the sea to rush in in gre;
volume. There appears to be son
doubt whether the schooner Nett
Cashing, now at New Loudon, ia tl
boat that did the damage. One of h
crow, it is stated, deolares that tl
steamer with which the Cashing caa
into collision was a white one, with sh
wheels. Some persons believe that tl
Metis Rank the sohooner that struck he
and that the Gushing wos in oollisii
with another steamer. The first ollie
of the Narragansett believes that tl
number of persons lost does not excei
forty-five. He Bays that innnmerat
schooners are oruising around the soe
of the disaster, and that macy perso
thought to be drowned have beon pick
up. ' He was told that several men a
women had been rescued by small vi
sels; bat the saddest thing of all was
the saloon of the Narragansett, whe

dressed, weeping silently, near the sj

turned, saying that the captain hod ti

of many feet running to and fro. A t

HAVANA, August 30, VIA KEY WEST,
FLA., August 31.-Capt. Jefferson Mau?
ry, of the steamship Bienville, arrived
hero this morning, from Nassau, and re?
ports the buming of the Bienville at sea.
Thu steamship Bienville left New York
on the 10th of August for Aepinwall.
Wheu in latitude 25 deg. 12 min., longi?
tude 74 deg. 15 min., ut 3.45 A. M., on
tho 15th inst., fire was discovered among
the cargo. Steam and water were imme?
diately turned ou, but the steam pump,
after a few revolutions, broke down aud
could not be worked. Capt. Maury then
ordored the hatches battened dowu
hoping to smother the firo, and at the
same time the fire extinguishers were
used between decks and steam kept on.
The fire gained, however, rapidly, and ut
6 o'clock Capt. Maury, fearing aa explo?
sion from powder stored in the hold, if
he remaiued by the ship any longer, or?
dered the six boats launched, and the
passengers and orew begau to embark.
At 7.30, Capt. Maury was forced to leave
tbe ship-being the last one on board.
One of the boats were capsized after
leaving the ship, and from seven to ten
of its inmates, including two women,
were drowned. After sun-rise, a fresh
breeze sprang up, and the capsized boat
was righted and bailed out and reached
Out Island in safety. The other boats,
except one, reached Eleuthea Island
distance 150 miles from the scene of the
disaster. The missing bout has not been
heard from, but ?B supposed was picked
up by a passing vessel, as an empty boat
was seen adrift near Eleuthea Island,
with a life preserver in it. One of the
boats, in attempting to land at Eleuthea
Island, was capsized and nine wero
drowned, iuolnding Mrs. Bander and her
three children. At 1.30 P. M., the Bien?
ville exploded and immediately sunk.
Wben fire was first discovered, it was
supposed to be in the fore-hold, where a
largo quantity of powder was stored;
bat it proved to be between decks, over
the boilers and among the cargo. The
passengers aud crew lost all their bag?
gage and saved nothing except the clothes
they hud on. Capt. Maury reports that
the people of Nassau treated the ship?
wrecked kindly, and ministered to their
wauts. Vice-Consul Saunders has cared
for the seamen. Anna Brahan, one of
thy rescued, became insane and was left
at Eleuthea, because she could not be
fouud when the party left for Nassau.
Tho steamer Anim and schooner Dandy
were despatched by the American Consul
to search for the missing boat. Out of
127 persons on board the Bienville,
thirty-four are unaccounted for, includ?
ing niue lost at Eleuthea. The bodies
of six persons were recovered and buried
at Jamos Poiut. The schooner William
McGee took thirty-four of the survivors,
on the 24th, to Baltimore. A subsorip

A gale of unusual severity for this
season of tho year has prevailed hero
since Thursday; several lake schooners
have been lost.
A party of red men put up in St.
Louis the other night. The Democrat
' reporter says: "Having taken possession
of their rooms, the Indians proceeded to
corral their carpet-bags between a horse
shoo of chairs; they then kindled camp
fires in the wash-basins, put out scouts
(none but Americans were on guard last
night) in the corridors to prevent sur?
prise by enemies and reporters, wrapped
the drapery of their couches around
them, and squatted down io amuse them?
selves by smoking the calumet of peace,
saying 'Ugh,' burning each other at the
stake, and other athletic games. The
Democrat reporter did not see them go
to sleep, as when they lay down tho key?
hole didn't rake their encampment. Ac?
cordingly, he pat on his boots heels first,
so as to misleud pursuit, and escapad."
