Steamer E. K. Collins Burned on Lake
Erie—Twenty-two Lives Lost!
Dktkoit, Oct. 9th. The steamer E. K.
Collins, from the Saut for Cleveland, left
this city last night between 10 and 11
o'clock.' About midnight the boat was dis-
I'fivi'ivil tr hi, fin fire when n litflw lu1nm
Maiden, near the light-house at the mouth uf
tne river, jieiore me uoat could got
ashore she was completely enveloped in
Jlaiut'8 and twenty-two nersons perished
either in the flames or in the water.
Passknokrs Missing. Mrs. Dibble, some
where iu New York ; Samuel Powell, Cleve
land ; Lawrence Whalcn, do.; Tlio.. Cook,
J'itlskirgh, 11. K. Agt., Cleveland; Mrs
.McN'cily, wife of waiter; Mrs. Watrous
-ii lit I child, Ashtabula body of a child re
covered; colored man from Virginia.
Fourteen of the crew are missing, sup
posed to have been lost,
Tli't Collins took fire on her boiler deck,
and so rapid was the spread of the flames
t hut the passengers and crew, who had
mostly retired, were unable to save any thin
except a few articles of clothing. She look
lire, in the bay, about a quarter of a mile
'.flow Maiden and nearly abreast of the
light house. She was immediately headed
tor fchore, but was enable, to reach shallow
water before the flames had complete pos
session of her. The after part of the boat
swung round into trie river and nearly all on
:board were driven to that part of the boat
and were obliged to jump into the river.
The current here sets out very strongly
into -the lake, and had it not been for the
timely arrival of Captain Langley, of the
propeller Fintry, nearly all would inevitably
have been drowned. Seeing the light, he
hastened to the snot, and had his boats all
ready to let o. As soon as the vicinity
was reached this was done, and mostly all
who were eaved were picked up by him, a
few only reached the shore. Some were
Jieurly exhausted. Everything that could be
!one to relieve the sufferers was done by the
crow of the Fintry, who octed nobly. Some
wretch i the tumult stole $80 from a sick
man wIkj had been at work at the Saut,
mid which constituted his earnings A
purse of 20 was made tip for him.
The. Collins came outlast October and cost
1UD,000, and was insured for only $13,500
in the Mercantile Mutual, New York ; 5.
O00 in the Atlas, New York, and 83,000 in
the North Western, New York. She was
owned by Capt. E. K. Ward.
Troiiable Tiuings of the Steamship City
or G lasgow. At last, after months of pain
ful suspense, indications of the probable
late of the steamship City of Glasgow, and
of the hundreds of unfortunate beings who
embarked in her, have come to light. Capt.
McLeavy, of the bark Mary Morris, from
Glasgow, arrived at New York on Friday,
and reports that on the 18lh of August, in
lat. 53:39, Ion. 16.07, weather very thick at
the time and a heavy sea on, he fell in with
the hull of a large iron vessel, apparently
Clyde built, painted black, with a bright red
bottom. There were three or four compart
ments in the hull, and all the wood-work
was entirely burnt out of her. Some of the
men who were sent aloft to look into her,
perceived she had machinery in her. On
the next day Capt. McLeavy fell in with
and took on board a full length female figure-head,
about seven feet in height, with
her hands extended, and a wreath upon her
head and green stripes on her dress.
It was the impression of all on board the
bark that the wreck was that of an iron
propeller, supposed the City of Glasgow.
From the circumstance that no other iron
vessel has been reported lost, except the
steamer Helen Sloman, some three years
back, appearances favor the belief that the
wreck was that of the City of Glasgow, and
that the fate of the poor souls "on board,
though different from that hitherto supposed,
was the. most awful that can occur among
the many disasters incidental to the ocean.
Though tie proofs are but small to identify
the wreck s that of the City of Glasgow,
the weather Virjg too unfavorable to make a
more thorough examination, still enough
may have been seen to guide those to a de
cision who were acquainted with the unfor
Asia. The recent successes of the Rus
sians in Asia have been rendered nugatory
by a diversion made by Schamyl. A letter
from Eraeroom of the 12th ultimo, in the
Paris Pays, says :
I have to announce to you a fact which
has produced a great sensation in Asia, and
is ot material importance, after the defeat
of the Turks at Kars. We had feared a mo
ment that the Russians would march upon
Erztroom, but we are now without appre
hension on that subject. Schamyl, at the
head of 16,000 horsemen, has descended from
the mountains into Georgia. As the Rus
sians expected no attack on that side, they
were not on their guard.
" The Circassian chief has inflicted upon
them serious damage. Two hundred vil
lages were put to fire and sword. Schamyl
is now within a few leagues of Teflis.
Bajazid has been evacuated by the Russians,
who have entirely withdrawn from the Otto
man territory. It is not known whether
this movement was occasioned by the pres
ence of Schamyl in the neighborhood of
Teflis, or whether the corps which occupied
Bajazid had been recalled, in order to fill up
the extensive vacancies caused y the last
battle, lie this as it may, the communica
tions with Persia, which had been inter
rupted, are now completely free."
The Negotiations. The Independence
Beige gives the substance of the answer to
the Western Powers, viz : Russia expresses
surprise that Austria should have transmit
ted such proposals to St. Petersburgh, unac
companied by any concession on the part of
the Western Powers. Russia, therefore, re
jects them. The Czar indefinitely regrets
that he has not been able to accept the last
overtures made by Austria. He considers
that he has made every concession compati
ble with the honor of Russia, and it only
remains for him to do the same as his ene
miesthat is, to try the eventualities of
war, in order to arrive at some solid basis of
The Emperor Nicholas has .directed his
general-in-chief to pass the Pruth with his
troops, from strategic motives, and Russia
will keep herself within her frontiers until
more equitable conditions are offered her.
The Emperor, on his side, will avoid increas
ing the complications of the war, but he
will repel, with the greatest energy, all at
tacks against him from whatever quarter
they may proceed.
The Western Powers have expressed them
selves satisfied with Austria's resolve to re
main for the present in armed neutrality.
The Germanic Diet resumed its sittings on
the 14th inst., when the Prussian represen
tative would inform the diet that Prussia,
never having bound herself by the guaran
tees demanded by the Western Powers, will
in future remain strictly neutral.
The Provincial Parliament of Canada has
passed an act granting to aliens the right to
purchase and convey lands in the Queen's
Provinces to the extent of four hundred
acres each. The government have put large
tracts of land into market at $la$1.25 per
acre. No reservations have been made re
specting minerals, and the Yankees in flocks
are prospecting on the north shore of Lake
Superior for copper and iron, and rich-openings
have been discovered ; and where one
Yankee squatter could not cover the "mineral
field, several unite, make their claim, and
jointly purchase the site.
Bank of England Notes. The notes of
the Bank of England, under a new process
not long since adopted, are signed by ma
chinery. The engraving of the whole note
is complete. Formerly the bank employed
twenty clerks, at a salary each of 500 per
annum, who did nothing else but sign their
names to notes. The new mode of signing,
it is supposed, will prevent counterfeiting.
Seventy-seven out of 3S9 of the Arctic's
passengers and crew, are known to be saved.
The French screw steamer Vesta, turns out
to be the Propeller with which the Arctic
came in collision. She arrived at. St. Johns,
N. B., on the 30th ult., with 31 of the Arc
tic's crew. She lost 13 of her own people
in the collision. There is a report that a
vessel has arrived at Warren, R. I., with 40
more of the Arctic's passengers.

licans, and the unsuccessful, Democrats, except the
two independents, Muir and Elder, one a whig, the
other a democrat. Avery's first name was acciden

law requires the first name to be given in full.
A Master Piece Out-Done. We have
lately supposed Ayer's Cherry Pectoral was
the Ultima Thule in its line, and that noth
ing had been or would be invented which
could surpass it in its fine points of excel
lence as a medicine. But we are confident
ly assured by those competent to judge on
the subject, that Dr. Ayer's new Pills excel
in high medical artistry even that widely
celebrated embodiment of his skill. He has
succeeded in making them not only pleasant
to take but powerful to cure the large class
of complaints which require a purgative
remedy. Lancaster Argus, Ky.

" No more that voice of melody
Shall echo's sweetest sound prolong;
No more that laugh of sinless glee
. Shall ring amid that happy throng.
The vacant chair beside the hearth .
Proclaims her loss at evening hour.
And they who knew her sterling worth,
In silence mourn the faded flower."

To G. S. B.
The earth hath closed upon thy friend.
Thy Brother sleeps beneath the sod,
The tenement of clay dissolved,
The spirit freed and gone to God.
His manly form, by sickness wrecked,
His brow distorted long by pain,
Death kindly came to his relief,
O wish him not on earth again.
It were no sin thy tears may fall ; '
The Savior wept o'er Lazarus dead.
And o'er the erring Jews of old
The tear of pity Jesus shed.
God rules in mercy still and love,
Afflicting for his children's good,
O trust his love, and calmly bow
Submissive to his chastening rod.
His grace can heal thy broken heart,
And teach thee, when afflictions come,
To look aloft, and, trusting, say,
Father above, "thy will be "done."
