The Losses by the Storm in the Black Sea.
1 he London Times Bays : The total loss of
men at the various stations on the coast of the Cri
mea on the disastrous 13th, cannot be less than
thousand, besides those that have fallen into the
hands of the Cossacks. The loss of vessels was
thirty British and French wrecked, and half as
many dismasted at Balaklava, and eighteen wreck
ed or dismasted at the mouth of the Katcha. Our
men-of-war thanks to the precaution of frequent
lv trying- their cables, have come off with no fur
ther damage than the loss of guns, or masts, or
rigging-, the twistin? of their rudders, or the spring-
in? some leaks, lhe French have lost the Henri
IY, a noble three decker, and a favorite war steam
er. Thus far we have sustained no loss beyond
the ordinary drain of war ; but the greatest calam
ity is that of which we scarcely now know the full.
The Prince, a magnificent new screw steamer of
1,4 00 tons, carried out the other day to Balaklava
the 4Gth Regiment, all the winter clothing for the
troops engaged in the aiege including 40,000 great
coats, flannel suits, under-shirts, socks and gloves ;
beef, pork and other provisions ; hospital stores for
bcutan ; and a vast quantity ot shot and shell to
carry on the seie. These are wholly lost, and
nothing remains of the i'nnce but half a dozen of
her numerous crew, who managed to get on the
cliffs when she was "broken to powder" against
them. The Resolute, with IK)0 tons of gunpow
dcr, also went to the bottom. Thus, it seems, all
the materials for carrying on the siege and provid
ing against the severity of the winter have been
carried on at one tell swoop; and, even it we think
to content ourselves with merely maintaining our
position on the heights before Sebastopol. it is evi
dent mat we arc not in a condition to stand our
worst foe the coming winter.
The Prince cut away her masts, and put on her
steam, but the wreck ot the inizenmast fouled the
screw, and the noble vessel becoming helpless, im
mediately dntted against the rocks, t igures are but
feeble language for the description of such a cat
astrophe, but the value of the Prince, as she float
ed, is put at 150,000, and her cargo at half a mil
lion. The 30 transports, utterly lost, with most
of their crews, at Balaklava, are put down at 13,-
000 each. So here, at once, a million of money
went to the bottom, in a iorrn ot which money
conveys out a lamt idea. me otner losses
enumerated above, the French ship-of-the-line
and war-steamer, the transports lost on the west
ern coast, the many vessels of all kinds disa
bled, make up another million to be added to
the naked pecuniary estimate of the loss. But the
true way of stating it is, that the army ia utterly
disabled for the present, and left to no other
protection than Heaven and that valor which the
British soldier is ever sure to display in the face
of the greatest difficulties, the direst privations, and
the most overwhelming numbers. Yet never was
the ancient valor of our race put to so tremendous
a trial. The tempest which is said to have been ths
most terrible ever known in that part of the world,
and which overthrew three of the minarets of Sul
tan Achmet's Mosque at Constantinople, besides
driving large vessels from their moorings before
that city, did not spare the allies even on land. It
blew down and greatly injured their tents, feeble
protection as they are against the cold Crimean
winter at the height of seven hundred feet above the
neighboring surge. Such is the situation in which
the army finds itself suddenly deprived of the much
wanted supply of clothing sent out tor the winter,
and the equally needful ammunition for the siege.
France. The well informed Paris correspoTrJent
of the National Intelligencer writes as fallows iu
regard to the present position of affairs in France :
"The interior position of France is satisfactory
in all its branches of production except the wine
crop, wnicn is a most serious evil, uopes, Howev
er, are entertained that it will not be a long contin
ued scourge; for, on examining the records, it ap
pears a similar, and equally extensive prevailed
with the vines about two centuries since, which, af
ter great injury to several successive vintages,
passed off without leaving any permanent injury
to the cultivation of the grape. In the meantime
the price of wine has advanced very greatly ; the
commoner kinds fully threefold, the finer qualities
not in the same ratio. The price must advance
proportionally in the United States, where French
wines will rule very high during the next year.
This war, however, if it continu -s, must very
soon seriously afivct the industrial interests of the
country in various ways. The enormous foreign
expenditure which is unavoidable iu conducting
such a war at a distant point, and on foreign terri
tory, will make itself felt in the monetary affairs
of the nation, and with still greater force in Eng
land, where their commercial and financial systems
arc much more artificial and unsteady than in this
country. The specie basis is so very large that a
supension is very improbable : but not so in Eng
land, where a panic and a run on the bank may bxi
readily produced by untoward events, or by tho
course of trade and their present heavy foreign
outlay, which is already diminishing tho specie in
the bank, notwithstanding the continued and
heavy influx of it from America and Australia.
Both nations, also, must eventually resort to loans
of large amounts to furnish 'the sinews of war.'
Heavy, very heavy clouds now rest on the European
The following is an extract from a private letter
written by an American gentleman m I'ari$, and
also published in the intelligencer.
France is sending forward very large reinforce
ments. Forty thousand men are embarking at Tou
lon and Marseilles, with battering and siege artil
lery, which is a proof they do not expect to take
Sebastopol this season ; and they are sending also
munitions of war in quantities as if for another
Russian campaign like that undertaken by tbe
great Napoleon. So pressing is the call or rein
forcements, that the private steamers in the Medit
erranean are chartered at very high rates and sent
off as fast as they arrive in port with from 400 to
1000 troops each, besides as many munitions of
war as they can carry.
The best blood ot England is being poured out in
the Crimea, and their losses, as well as those of the
French, are frightfully severe. Well informed per
sons assert that, including the ravages of the cliol
era, tne allies nave aireaay lost w,vw since tney
entered the Black N;a. lhe expenses are appall

country, and a new conscription on a large scale,
which l lear will create great uissausiacuon.

the raordern method of spiking gun3, as practised
by the armies of the Crimea, will be interesting to
many of our readers :
"The 8Dikes are about four inches long, and of
the dimension ot a tobacco pipe ; tne neau nat j a
barb at the point acta as a spring, which is natural

toich hole. Upon reaching the chamber of the
gun it resumes its position, and it is impossible to
withdraw iL It can only be got out by drilling
no easy task, as they are made of the hardest steel,
and being also loose in the touch-hole, there is
much difficulty in making a drill bite as effectually
a it Fhould do. Its application is the work of a
momenta single tap on the flat head with the palm
of the hand sufficing. I his can be easily done,
even if it is ever so dark."

with Admiral Stirling, and & Convention was sign

ports of Simoda and ilakodadi shall be thrown
open to British trade. At the same time permission
was granted to the crews of the vessels to land on
an island in the harbor, three quarters of a mile in
circumference; but with the exception of those ofB
cers who accompanied the Admiral in his threw
ceremonial visits to the Governor, on which occa
sions all view of the surrounding country, or even
the town, was prevented by a fence ten to twelve
feet high, extending from the wharf to the house
in which the reception took place, not a single in
dividual was allowed to set foot on thejpain land.
No traffic was permitted, and all endeavors on tbe
part of the officers to procure specimens of lac
quered ware, &c. proved unsuccessful. Indeed,
every thing was done, and successfully, bat under
a garb of the utmost politeness, to teach their vis
itors that their company had rather be dispensed
with. The Squadron got under weigh on the 20th
instant, after a lengthy and most disagreeable stay"
of six weeks, and returned to Hongkong, where,
though previously separated in a gale, the vessels',
as above mentioned, have all arrived in safety.
During the progress of the present war between
Russia and the allies, but little has been heard of pri
vate-armed vessels cruisiag against the commerce of
either of the belligerants. iot withstanding the
considerable squadron of the allies in the Pacific

that it would seem impossible for the ships em
ployed in that service to prevent serious aggres

vigor. But this has not, thus lar, been the case.

understood that the Russian ship Kamtscbatka,
which arrived in our harbor a few days ago is a
regular privateer, instead of a peaceful merchant

being for the purpose of obtaining stores, their sup
plies having been cut short by the capture of the
ship Sitka. The Kamtscbatka mounts ten guns,
ana has a crew of 120 men, who appear to be un
der the best possible discipline. She is said to b
an excellent sailer, and has been cruising in the
Oohotsk sea in search of English and French w ha

is a vessel every way calculated for the business in
which she is engaged, and will no doubt make sad
havoc amongst the French and English merchant
