Further Particulars the Loss of
the Central America.
Tlit; I'islcrn papers are filled with
interesting particulars of this fcrriMe
disaster, taken from the lips of the
survivors. Our space is so limited that
we can give only very few extracts from
these statements. Tho following is
copied from a statement made hy Mr.
Ilcorge, and may servo as a specimen of
lie was one of the hundred who had
supplie d themselves with life -prc.-er crs,
pieces of plank, . mid preferred to
await tin! tl i i 1 s '-oiii ' down to leap-
ing ovcihoard in anticipation of her
fate. When she went down stern fore
most, after giving three lurches that
maile every tiniher cuiver, and which
wire to every u:iking heart as the
threos that instantly preceded her dis
solution, he was dragged with the rest
on hoard of her some twenty or twenty
five ft.)heneatli the surface, lie heard no
shriek, nothing but the seething rush
and hiss of waters, that closed above
her as she hurried, almost with the
peed of an t.rrow. to her ocean bed.
Night had closed in before, the vessel
sank, and he was sucked in by the whirl
pool caused by her swift descent, to a
depth that in its seeming was unfathom
able, and into a darkness that, be had
never dreamed of. Compared with it,
the blackest night, without moon or
stars, was as the broad noonday.
1 le was rather stunned than stilled,
and his sensations on coming to tho sur
face, were almost as painful, from their
reaction, as those which ho endured at
the greatest depth to which ho sank.
When be became conscious, after the
lapse of a minute or two, be could dis
tinguish every object around him for a
considerable distance. Tho waves, as
they rose and fell, revealed a crowd of
human heads. These unfortunates, who
had lost their life preservers or planks
w hile under water, owing to the force
of the whirl 1, were frantically snateh-
inir'at the broken pieces of the wreck.

into one inarticulate wail, and then the
lustier and less terrili"d shouted for as
sistance to the bark Marine, which was
far beyond hailing distance. The waves
dashed them one against another, at
fir.-t, but speedily they began to separate,
and the hist farewells were taken. One
man called to another, in our informant's
bearing, "if yuu are saved,, Frank, send
my love to my dear wife." but the friend
appealed to answered only with a gur
gle of the throat. 1 le was washed oil his

draw them under. Others, afraid of
their loneliness, called to their neighbors
to keep together. Cetierally, they
strove to cheer each other, as long as
they remained within hearing, and when
the roar of the waves drowned all but
the loudest shouting, the call of friend
ship, or the cry of despair, was heard
in tho distance, and infused confidence,
or increased dismay in many a failing
It was when he had drifted far from
the companionship of any of his fellows
in misfortune, that M r. George bcg;aii to
realize his situation.
MEETING A CORPSE.
Some of the incidents described as
occurring before or about that time,
were truly thrilling. Onoman, floating
in solitude, and terrified at his loneli
ness, after shouting himself hoarse to
find a companion, saw at length a man
with two life-preservers fastened about
his body, drifting towards him. His
heart, leapt with joy at the welcome
sight, fur tho folding of desolation which
I,-.,! (1Verculuo him was terrible to en
"Mure. H0 called to tho other
liiui, if possil
, and made every exer
tion to meet lnm hall way. J lie re
was no reply, but the other drifted near-id-
and nearer. They touched. The
living man shrieked in the face of a
corpse! Tho other had been drowned
by the dash of the billows, or hud per
ished from exhaustion.
THE ELLEN IN SIGHT.
When, rising and falling, with tho
swell of the waves, the lights of the
bark Ellen were first discerned by the
survivors in tho water, the thrill of
hope that at once filled every breast,
amounted, it may bo well believed, to
a perfect eostacy. Let Mr. (jeurgo speak
or all. lie says:
"I never felt so thankful in all my
life. I never knew what gratitude was
before. I do not know whether I cried
not, but 1 know I was toni.shed to
hear my own laughter ringing in my
cars. 1 do not know why i laughed.
That verso, 'Uod moves in a mysterious
way,' kept passing in and out of me,
through mo, rather, as if I had been the
pipe of an organ. Jtdid not come to mo
by my own volition, but something
made mo remember it. When lights
approached nearer, a score of voices
sprang up around me, crying, 'oat
ahoy,' and thou 1 began to shout, too.
And 1 had never any doubt that 1 should

about half a mile from where I was,
and recede in tho distance. Then I be
gan to give myself up for lost indeed.
But I slowly drifted toward her again,
til! I could make out her hull and one
of her masts, and presently I lloated
close to her, and shouted, and was taken
up. When I got on deck I could not
..land. I did not know till then how ex
hau led 1 was.''
A great many of the passengers were
miners, having considerable sums of
gold about them, the product of years
of toil; but. the love of gold was for
gotten in the anxiety and terror of
the moment, ami many a man un
buckled his gold stulfed belt, and
flung his hard-earned treasure upon the
deck, some hoping thereby to lighten
their weight, and thus more easily
keep themselves afloat, while others
threw it away in despair, thinking
there was no use for it in the watery
giivethey Were going to. Mr. Chase
sas that he might have picked up tens
of thousands of dollars which bad been
thrown away and lay strewn about the
decks; but .lie did not think there was
sulhcient prospects of his surviving to

Asiatic Hypocrisy—A Frightful Incident
of the Indian Mutiny.
We quote the following from one of
tho letters of I'inglish officers in India
thathavo found their way into the pa
pers: Jri.v 1" Throughout all ages tho
Asiatic Ins been noted for his duplicity,
cunning, hypocrisy, treachery; coupled
with this and, indeed, as necessary for
xcellingin this accomplishment of Jes
uitism his capacity of sei
raiment Hut in vain will tho annals
even of Asia be ransacked for examples
of artful, refined consummate duplicity,
surpassing those w hich have been exhib
ited in the recent mutinies. In almost
every instance, the Sepoys succeeded in
concealing their long concocted and
murderons designs from the most vig-
ilant. officers to the very last. vca. nnd
not only in concealing them but in
masking them under the most flaming
professions ot attachment and loyalty,
The case of the (ith Native Infantry
at Allahabad is thus recorded, as tho re-
suit, of authentic information, by one of
our Calcutta journals: "It appears that
after the (dliecr-i of tho regi nt first left
the lines, a subadar paid a visit, to Lieut
Slaines. the interpreter, and expostula-
tod with him, in the iiaiue ( f tho regi-
meet, upon the want of confidence which
they had displayed. 'Come to us,' ho
said, we are l.-i
master, we wi
ful, wo love our good
protect you, but it gives
us l am to see volt
pect us. Ma;nes;
and his wife, who was p resent at the
interview, were melted even to tears, at
the simple eloquence of the man whom
they had insulted, as well as bis fellows
hy their unworthy suspicions. There
was but one course left to take
to return to the bosoms of tho regiment,
to throw themselves upon the hearts of
the men and this course they resolved
to adopt, persuading the. nllieers of the
regiment find their families to follow
When (hey returned to the regiment,
the scene which awaited them touched
the hearts of all present. The men
whom they had suspected, in a moment
of narrow-minded apprehension, were
found draw n up to receive their ollieers.
and welcome them with three hearty
English cheers The native ollieers, un
able to control their feelings, which
swelled high, and sent their warm As
iatic blood coursing in their veins in de
fiance of all co'd rules of decorum and
follow military observances gave vent,
to the natural and simple emotions of
their bravo hearts. They flung them
selves round the nocks of their European
ollieers who had SO generously atoned
for their cruel suspicions, and kissed
them on both cheeks. The reconcil
iation was complete' confidence was hap
pijy restored, and that same night the
native ollieers and men rose and pro
ceeded to tho work of massacre!"
This is the regiment which some time
before had professed such extra zeal and
loyalty, that they enthusiastically plead
to be allowed to proceed to Delhi to pun
ish the mutineers, of whoso treacherous
andVruel conduct they spoke with vehe
ment detestation. In order still further
to prove their loyalty, they again and
again delivered up spies, who had come
to spread sedition amongst them. So
completely was the veracity of their pro
fessions confided in, Lord Canning .sent
them a special letter of thanks, which
was publicly read to them on parade on
a certain evening at six o'clock; and
the reading of which elicited three hearty
cheers for the Company. On that very
evening, at nine o'clock, a gentleman on
the ramparts of the fort, observing a
rocket go up, said to the magistrate near
him. "What's that?" "Oh," said the hit-
tor, "it is only a marriage." Rut, lo!
another rocket followed. It was the sig-
nal agreed on by the "staunch and loyal
b'th?'' when the mess house was attacked,
and seventeen out of the twenty unarmed
confiding ollieers assembled thero were
instantaneously butchered in cold blood,
their shrieks being beard at a con
siderable distance. The colonel of the
regiment, who up to the last, laughed at
the idea of precautionary measures being
necessary, and who would not believe
that his men would mutiny until the
balls flow through his bat and coat, con
trived to escape to the fort with his life.
Then commenced the work of plunder
and devastation, the destruction of
property throughout tho town and its
vicinity being most complete, the
bungalows in tho cantonments, and all
tho Rritish residences being soon in
blaze, tho now railway station, with its
buildings and machinery, and carriages,
the extensive American mission press
premises and schools, all laid waste,
public treasury, bank and store
bouses pillaged; in short, within a few
days, tho whole city of Allahabad, con
taining one hundred and twenty thous
and inhabitants, was not only sacked
and ravaged, but literally reduced to one
a..t lua.g, of ruins and a. he,.!

"Sectionalism—The Wagon Road
to the Pacific.
Mu. h was said and sung during tho
last, Presidential canvass, in glorifica
tion of " iih'nniil Iknuirriiii." Tho
Rrpublieau party was met everywhere)
with the arguments drawn frmn the as
sumption that only the Northern poo
pic, and the Republican party as their
representatives, jwere liable to the
charge of 'Sectionalism." Whatever
the South demanded whatever princi
ple were enunciated everything w.n
done in the name of Xuflunnl Pemoora
ey. They claimed that they only truly
represented the national sen time nt of thn
peopb that they were the true protec
tors of our liberty and independence. -Rut
now we behold all the strength of
this party used to extend slavery over
our fi-ir territory, and to advance and
strengthen the interests of a feiii.
All tho predictions and warnings ul
tercd by the Republican party are in
course of rapid fulfillment. We now
see tho once grot Deui'x't Fe ptirty
prostrate at the feet of slavery and ep
jprossinn their pres oit leaders forsak
mg the principles of Liberty so sacred
ly cherished by Jefferson, and selling
their birth ri".bt to Shivery for a messi
of pottage. When will tiny permit
the scales to fall from their eyes, and
. ire that they have been deceived
by specious promises and led to belieru
We were promised a national admin
istration, which would know no North
no South but regard the whohi
country as a unit bound in the same
bundle f;' ditt'uiy. The administration
of Mr. Purhanan is gradually but sure
ly developing its policy controlled as
it is hy a majority of Southern men.
In regard to Kansas, they are cautious
ly but surely throwing the meshes of
slavery around that devoted territory,
by placing and keeping the places of
power and trust in the bands of j.ro-sla
very olheials, and by playing a game of
fast and loose through (iov. Walker.
Rut the most decided and outspoken
demonstration of what this administra
tion intends to work out through its
po.ver and p.-.tp
n ige, in favor of see
tioiial v h v ai.d
lion of what is
p'li po.-es, is the se'.ec
(a. lei the border or
for the Wagon Mail
Route to tho Pacific. The Southern
border route passfcs along the Mexican
frontier through an unsettled country,
nnd cro.-f es seven deserts orsandy plains,
in extent -PJ'.i miles. The whole route
is subject to intolerable droughts and
heat. It has never boon used as an em
igrant route it is not settled nor is it
ever visited, except by the prairie wolf
or Camanche Indian. Nor has this
route the advantage of bring level and
uf easy grade. 'p1(. surface is undulating-
constantly rising and falling, rcre
ly hori.onlal the grades varying from
til to 210 feet per mile.
The route direct from St. Louis, on
iho other hand, is shorter by four hund
red milt"!. It passes throt'gh the Cher
okee selllcMic'its, where supplies can
ilway be id. tallied. It is the lavorilo
emigrant route. It is for the most iiart
well watered and pro luetive. The cli
mate is as mild as that of Wishington,
there bcingonlyjon idry plain o.'" -lojiuih s
extent. St. Louis, the starting point,
is the terminus of the great net-work
of Railways, which distributes the do
me.'tie commerce of the Northern and
Middle Slates. These railroads trail
saet ut least three fbiirt lis of t he wholu
Railroad business of the country.
This route passes up the valley of the
Canadian, and thus opens up to settle
ment the richest unsettled portion of
tho United States. The region lying
between Kansas and Texas would make
two States w ith more arable land than
(Jeorgia. The country lying to tlm
west of it would make a State of tho
size of Pennsylvania, and of about the
climate of N . Carolina.
Regardless of the manifold advanta
ges of this route the President, has as
sented to the selection of tho former.
So much for having a Tennessee P. M.
and live members of the Cabinet repre
senting Southern interests, with a sub
servient President. Thus lias tho
President, for merely personal arid self
ish ends, selected a route to compel the
trade and travel of California to stirt
from Memphis several hundred miles
south of the line which would best ac
commodate three-fourths of the people
of the United States. Tho people of
Memphis themselves, und the South
generally, in common w ith the rest ol'
the country, have been in the hubit
of traveling this Northern route for
Why was the Southern route chosen?
Merely because this Wagon Road would
prepare the country between tho Mis
sissippi and Culi'brnia for a Railroad
load to a knowledge of the resources
and situation of the intervening terri
tory attract emigrants along the route,
w ho would ultimately assist in building,
operating and paying the expenses of
such a road. So much for a Southern,
Tho Northern Democracy will open
tlicir eyes to thu policy of lids adminis

of. all the facts above stated were before

and confirmed by the concurring opin
