Most Dangerous Spot on the Atlantic
-Scene of Many Wrecks.
The wreck of the steamship North
eastern off Cape Hatteras add an
other to the long list of ships that
have lost their bones on the treacher
eus Diamond Shoals, he graveyard of
the Atlantic ocean.
No place touched by the waters of
the Atlantic ocean is the scene of so
many disasters as Cape Hatteras. Ask
a mariner for the name or number of
ships that have given up their ca
reers on the treacherous projection of
sht North Carolina coast, and he will
shrug his shoulders. The deep-sea
sailors loses recollection of the con
stant mishaps off Hatteras. Disas
-vers are too frequent to stand out
clearly in the memory.
The greatest loss of lift occurred
when a French steamer, trading be
tween New York and the West In
dies, struck a derelict vessel at night
during a gale and went down with
nearly 200 souls aboard. The British
and Norwegian tramp steamers that
have missed their way in rounding
the promontory may be counted by
the score. The Balimore bark Pris
cilla went to pieces near Hatteras,
when Captain Springsteen lost his
wife, a son and a passenger.
Cape Hatteras is the eastermost
projection of the Atlantic coast into
he sea. Shoals of shifing sands run
chored the Diamond Shoalsc light
ship, which has several time been
swept away from her moorings and
once driven ashort. If there is a gale
from almost anp direction it yicks up
big seas on the shoals that sprawl
out to sea.
The Gulf Stream, which sweeps
around the projecti6n of land, adds
to the confusion of the seas. It is a
region of fogs, and there are land
marks on the coast which somewhat
restmble Cape Henry, often ltring
ships in on the beach when their
skippers believe they are heading for
No lighthouse has ever stood the
fury of the seas off Hatteras. Be
tween 1875 and i9o2 the records of
the life-saving service -show that there
were 97 wreccs at this point, with to
tal losses of $3,ooo,ooo and 62 lives.
The latest attempt to build a light
house at this important point was in
i889, when a conract was given to
.Anderson & Barr, of Pittsburg. An'
ernormous caisson was constructed,
:and preparations were made for put
