At 10 o'clock" on the some night, the ship
htruck the ledge. A great panic pre?
vailed. . Cant. Thomas is highly praised
for his conduct during the terrible scenes
which followed. Two boats were filled
with * men who refused to oome out.
The captain, fired his revolver over their
heads to drive them out, and then fired
at them, but witfiout effect. Afterwards
the ship was washed, with her broadside
to the sea, and all on board these boats
perished. The tackle at the Btorn was
released too soon, leaving the boats sus?
pended by the bows. Three beats then
got away; one of these, a life boat, was
so badly injured that she sank, and I
eleven of the people on board of her were
rescued, by the other boats. The fog
lifted an hour 'after the steamer struck, I
and the lights were plainly visible. Guns
?were fired from the..steamer until the
powder became wetv.;*tm deck-house,
crowded with people, was swept away at
2 A. M. The captain gathered some of
the survivors on the bridge; all, were
gradually washed away by the flood tfd?,a
which took tbo doctor and the captain.
The last of. the rigging which remained
above water .-was crowded with past en?
gen and the crew all night The main?

rescued after being in the
urn. .Two'boats from St
ved a short time before the
masts fell, .but they were. unable to ap?
proach - the steamer on account of the
fihoals. They, however, picked up'strug
glers in the water. The passengers say
Copt Thomas left the bridge at 3. A. ~M. ,
to .assist, those on deck, and when he
reached the deck was- swept away by a
heavy .sea. All concur in saying that he
exercised the greatest caro, and was not
abed for five nights previous to the dis?
aster. The sea began to break over the
vessel half an hour after she struok, and
the tide rose twenty-five feet before day?
break. Only one woman was saved.
Lateb.?All day long the details of the
Schiller disaster have been coming in.
Unfortunately no more persona are re?
ported saved. Bodies are constantly
being picked up. Among those recovered
are Goo. Leonhardt Carl Schmidt, Mrs.
Beiderer and child, Mrs. Becker, Mrs.
Bidgeway and Mrs. Hermine, West, five I
men, five women and two children.
Altogether twenty-four bodies hare been
found. The total number of lives lost
is 811. Mr. Coleman, second officer of ]
the Schiller, and Henry, Stern and Mr.
Traben, first class passengers, have been
interviewed. From, their narratives we
gather that the voyage was moderately
?;ood until May 4. The last three days
t v.-as impossible to take observations;
the ship was out of her course half a
mile at the time of the catastrophe.

cries and shrieks of the victim's were
heart-rending; then followed a ghastly
silence. The smoke-stack fell, crushing
Rome of the boots, and two others were
carried away; the remainder followed;
the1 captain went to the forward bridge.
Each Succeeding wave took fresh
victims. Some persons sought refuge on
the: main and some on the fore-mast At
3 o'clock, the captain and two other
officers were on the bridge. The captain
descended for a moment to render as?

At thin time, about ten persons were
clinging to the rigging of the main-mast
and thirty to that of the fore-mast The
ship had careened, her yards touching

shouted, but their cries were unavailing.
At 7 o'clock, the main-mast and at a

to-day for boats to approach the wreck of

the Schiller is firmly settled on the rocks
and will not fall off into deep water;
although it is difficult to approach the
wreck now, there will bo many days in
summer when salvage may be effected.
There was a life belt in every one of the
Schilier's berths. When the disaster oc?
curred, the captain issued orders that ]
one should be fastened to every woman.
This was done, but the women were
drowned by the heavy sea.

New York, May 10.?Mr. Wheeler, of
the Congressional Louisiana Committee,
in a letter in relation to the adjustment
of differences in that State effected under
the award of that committee, says there
is a class of people who seem to have
expected that the adjustment was to in?
augurate a political millcnium in Loui?
siana; that henceforth that State was to
bo wholly free from the friction which
attends the workings of political parties
elsewhere. This class will probably
prenounce the adjustment a failure, for
undoubtedly party warfare will continue
to be waged in Louisiana very much as
it is in New York and other States of the
Union. She will have her dishonest
officials and corrupt legislation, as other
States have, and she will for years to
come stagger along under the load of her
accumulated financial burdens, and her
obligations may at times go to protest.
Louisiana, from her existence as a State,
has had an exceptionally stormy record?
this condition of things arising from a
diversity of races and character in the
State, with almost unavoidable disturb?
ances growing out of the war, and the
upheaval and very foundations of labor
and society is not to be changed in a day
by any one act, however beneficial;
nevertheless, I firmly believo that even
Louisiana has at last caught inspiration
from the new order of things, and that,
exhausted as she is with tumult and vio?
lence, yet with a just government and
the education of her people?tho last
just now her greatest need?she will,
with steady but slow pace, emerge from
what seemed to bo her utterly helpless
condition. There is another olass who
will regard the adjustment as a failure?
those who sought in it simply partisan
advantages, without arrogating anything
for the gentlemen who composed tho
late Congressional Committee on South?
ern Affairs. I think. I may safely claim
for them that they are not of this class.
Regarding the allegation that one of
tho provisions of the adjustment has
already been violated by the Democrats,
Wheeler says ho cannot subscribe to the
truth of this allegation; the arbitrators
had nothing to do but to pass open the
claims of the members and Senators who
should sign the agreement Of course,
the award could affect no one else. It
was merely advisory to the Republican
members of the General Assembly. It
could not and did not seok directly to
interfere with the rights of the members
then sitting, and who had certificates of
the Returning Board, but whose scats
were claimed by Democrats. After the |
Democrats left the House on the 4th of .
January, and some timo during the win?
ter session, the Republicans unseated
four Democratic members, who held cer?
tificates of the Rcturcinglkiard,and whose
names were on the list of members
used by the Republican Clerk. At the
attempted organization in January, no
one of these four Democrats, who were
reseated at the recent extra session of the
Legislature, of which complaint is
made, was a party to the articles of ad?
justment; no one can be found in Louisi?
ana to assert that ftt the time these four
Democrats were unseated, there was a
J[uorum of the House present. So these
bur Democrats had never been legally
deprived of their scats; but it is replied
by those who impute bad faith to the
Democrats, that the agreement contains
this provision: "The House of Repre?
sentatives, as to its members as consti?
tuted under the award, shall remain
without change except by the resignation
or death of members until a new general
election," and tbia condition has been
violated. The Democrats never ques?
tioned the action of the Returning
Board except in the oases referred to the
committee. They were willing, with
these exceptions, to abide by it. My un?
derstanding of the above provision is
that tho Houso of Representatives was.to
be as returned by the Returning Board,
after the errors of that board had been
corrected in cases specified in the agree?
ment by the award Of the committee and
its adoption by the,House of Bepresehta
?res. The parties to the agreement hav
g tfadeho stipulation in these cases,
?cann^ty ' -felty"^ to deprive
,%| (j?a v ' ??rtftnrf a
these four members of the seats to which
they had~been declared elected *hy the
JBM sii mi pgjL Board, and of which "less
1 IWrfyof the members." of tho
House ofltepresentativee had attempted
to deprive them.' These four men being
legally entitled to their seats, having
done nothing to forfeit them, their re?
instatement was an act of simple justice,
which all fully understanding the acts
must approve." Mr. Wheeler says,
touching the allegations of bad faith by
the Democrats, that they did not act co?
vertly. He details the opposition mani?
fested upon the first acceptance of tho
articles of adjustment ami says: "On the
day preceding the meeting of tho late
extra session of the Legislature, I met at
the rooms of Gen. Sheridan prominent
Republican officials and Col. Leonard,
of tho Shreveport limes, who had been
a leading man in the negotiations on the
Democratic side. The matter of the
four members was fully discussed in
Gen. Sheridan's room, and Leonard dis?
tinctly informed us that he wished no
concealment, and that it was due to us
that he should inform us that if the
award of the committee should be
adopted by the House, the Democrats
would promptly reseat the four members.
This statement is but simple iostico to
Col. Leonard and those whom he repre?
sented.. I Can easily perceive how parties
at a.distance, without knowledge of the
facts in detail, should! deem the Demo-*
orats guilty of non-obeervanee of the
provision which I have oited; but I can?
not. Common justice which ought to
characterize parties as well as individuals
entitles them to this explanation. The
Republican party has now put itself in
the right in Louisiana. The action of
both parties in the future will be watched
by th?? country, and the people will meto
out to each the judgment which, by its
acts, it shall have entitled itself, and to
that tribunal tho matter may safely be
