The Minister of Marine estimates the deaths in the Sicily disaster at 115,000. Others believe that the figures will icach 200,000 or mere. More detailed reports ate constintly coming in from the wrecked villages and distressed people, nnd talc3 of suffering arc heart-rending. HALF POPULATION WIPED OUT Half of the population of Calabria, in eastern Sicily, was cither killed or injured, and thousands were pinioned in the ruins of the fall ing buildings. KING AND QUEEN AT WORK At Messina the people arc starving, the relief measures being too slow to get sufficient food to the people who nrc in no condition to look out for themselves. The King and Queen of Italy have arrived and aw personally aiding the people. 43,000 PEOPLE SWEPT AWAY Rcggio with a population of 43,000 was completely destroyed, having been swept by the tidal wave. The Aclonian Islands have been devastated. Further shocks are occurring from time to time at Messina, Syra cuse, and Palermo. The whole island is more or less agitated, though the heaviest shocks nrc in the sections mentioned. At Utica, on the coast of Africa, the people arc terrorized from the shocks.

A. SCHAEFER, Italian Consul, has opened a subscription list at his office for the relief of the sufferers by the earth quake in Sicily and southern Italy, and he will be pleased to receive any donation that may be offered for that purpose. Where immediate relief is essential and the calamity is appalling, gifts should reach the sufferers as early as possible to do the most good. No doubt this community will heartily respond to this appeal in order to share in the helpful sympathy which is world-wide, and to assist in relieving the distress consequent upon this terrible disaster. During this forenoon subscriptions amounting to about a hundred dollars were received, and it is hoped that the response to the appeal will be general and generous.
