i l"e ork Wrecking Company has
I ,k1en,cl"lrPe of the wreck ofthe Atlautio
and Captain bbcridan, tho great Novs
ccolia wrecker, is actio? under his in
(ructions. The bodies of persons iu the
cabin were plainly seen yesterday, and an
effort is to be made to get at them by
cutting through the side of the ship. As
the vessel lies on her side it is extremely
difficult to get into the saloon. The
manner of diving here is primitive Hut
for tho spars of the broken Atlantic a
person knowing nothing of the wreck
might think that the men in the group
of rowboats were hauling in fish. 'J hey
tale no unusual interest in thcii work,
and body or bale is steadily hauled up
and borne away to the store houte or
the graveyard. There is the diving boat,
iu which is made fast the air-pump,
worked by two men. This Loat is lashed
to ono of the ppus of the Atlantic.
Parallel with it. at about a distance of
six feet, lies another boat, in which aro
the men who haul up tho bodies. The
diver puts on most of his dress in tho
schooner, which lies about two hundred
yards from the wreck. Over bis ordinary
aim tie pulls tirst a thick Jersey, theu

and over all ho draws a nondescript flan

cold, he crawls into his water proof dress,
and looks like a turtlo with a human
head. From the schooner ho is rowci
to the boats. There he completes hu
toilet. He puts on un enormous nair of
boots, with double soles, one of leather
and one of lead Two lieuvv flat lead
weights arc hung over his shoulders, the
helmet i6 screwed nn. the lifi'.li nn nttni.linil

Sheridan is the most experienced diver
of this coast. Tho first time he went
down into the wreck for bodies he met o
sight that would have appalled Ic-s stout
hearted men. lie entered tlm n.ihin. In
a corner stood almost straight the form
of a woman in her nii'ht dress. The
hands were open aud the arms extended.
As Sheridan opened the saloon door the
still water rippled, and tho arms of tho
(lead woman moved up and down. As
he moved forward, the wnler nerumn mnre
agitated, aud the dead body, still upright,
siowiy anu wun wavering hands, tlouted
toward him. lie moved asido to let it
pass, then passed a rone around the mid
die, guided it through tho cabin door,
gave the signal and it was hoisted. One
of the divers at work on the Atlantic told
that as he was passing along in the steer
age he was struck twico on the helmet.
Looking up ho saw a dead body. The
agitation of the water had caused the
corpse to mote. Tho vessel is full of
broken timber, of twisted and jagged iron
plates, and of bales nnd boseK. nml l. A

upart for single women.
The divers have never, except on Sun
duy last, endeavored to get at the bodies,
when they could just as easily send up a
bale of goods. Captain Sheridan has
been working for forty per cent, of the
net value of goods saved, and his men
must of course look to his interests A
body is worth nothing, while a bale of
silk may bo worth thousands of dollars.
There is, therefore, no induccmt for a
diver to send up a body. Personal effects
are exempt from salvage, so that a body
with half a dozen gold watches and
thousands of dollars in bank notes and
gold is worth as littlo to tbo diver as that
of tho poorest stowaway. On Tuesday
only one body, that of a steerage passen
ger, was recorered.
Young Simpson, just beginning tbo

to tho old man that he had swallowed
totnu marine sccphelous tnollosks, tho
old man was much alarmed, and ho sud
denly seized Simpson, throw him to the
floor, and held him and screamed for
help. And when Mrs. Simpson came
with Bomo warm water, and the hired enm
rushed in with a garden pump, they
forced half a gallon of vater down
Simpson, and they hold him by tho heels
