Ni:v VnliK, November 22. The Old
Dominion steamship Manhattan, which
left this city lor West I'oint, Va.. tit four
'clock last Tuesday nltrinoun, wi.h
thiri v-tive pusscngcr-. collided wiih the
schooner Agms Manning irom Baltimore
fur New York, and wel l to tne hottoir.
At least lilieui lives ari siqiposed to have
be. n lost. Tlie first inlormalioii of ti e
disaster was given in the Associated
i'ress dispatch irom New London, at the
company's ollice. The iiiiorninlion ri
ccned pointed to llic fact tliat iu u,l
probability over twenty persons hae
been lost. The vessel's crew numbered
thirty-seven. She also carried three
steerage passengers. The names of only a
lew of the crew are known by the Old
Dominion people. The manager of the
company said thai the vessels ou his line
exchanged crews al the end ol each trip,
and il w.is impossible to slate which of
ihc employees of the company were on
ooard. The Manhattan was valued tit
.;!15il,(IUU, and thcie was no insurance
on her. She carried a very small cargo,
only 101! tons of general nic;'cliaiidisck
pi'iucipnllvgri'ccrics and dry goods. The
Manhattan was a wonden vessel,
schooner rigged, of 1,1! tons hurt hen,
and was built at Chester, I'a., in 1S7U.
The fact that the schooner with which
the steamship collided has ai rived at
l liilailclplna compaiatively sale, and
makes no report ol the loss "of hie or the
-inking of the other vessel, suggests the
icar that most ot the Manhattan's crew
nave been drowned. Besides, the captain
ol the schooner reports that the com
mander of the steamship relused lo give
tin name of his vessel when he was sig
nalled to do so by ihe captain of the
i'l'tiwick Island, where the collision oc
curred, is on the Delaware coast, and on
the dividing line lietweeu Delaware and
Maryland. It is twenty miles south of
Cape Henlopen. Tins is the second vessel
lost hy collision by the Old Dominion
company iu less 'linn a month's time.
