The Jeannette Crushed in the Ice off
the Coast of Siberia,
A special cablegram from London,
under date of Dec. 20, says: The gov
ernor of Siberia has just issued a proc
lamation announcing that the Arctic
voyage ship, the Jeannette, is safe, with
all on board well and all her equip
ments intact. The governor, who has
taken for a long time a great interest
in Arctic explorations, caused an ex
traordinary exploring party to bo sent
out to hunt the tracks of the Jean
nette, when he learned that fears were
entertained that misfortune had over
taken her and that relief expeditions
were being organized in her interest by
the different governments. Knowing
the delays incidental to such govern
ment action, he at once equipped and
sent out on his own account, a party of
the most experienced and reliable ex
plorers at his command, with powers
and positive instructions. These men
at once entered into the undertaking
with all their souls and stuck to their
work, despite the most dangerous ob
stacles, until they found traces of the
lost ship, and finally overtook her.
The people aboard the Jeannette were
much astonished when they were in
formed by the Siberian explorers that
they had become the object of solici
tude of all the civilized nations of the
world, and that nearly all the Christian
governments were preparing to make
appropriations to fit out vessels looking
to a general search for what was gen
erally feared would prove to be only
their remains. After ascertaining that
the JeannettfKvas absolutely safe and
that all on board were well and fully
provided for, the Siberians hastened
back to report the good news for which
the governor had sent them and the
whole scientific world . was anxiously
awaiting. The governor of Siberia at
once dispatched special couriers with
the news to have it get to London with
all possible speed, and it reached Lon
don a few minutes ago.
The history of the Jeannette is as
follows: In July, 1875, Captain, now
Sir Allen Young, who "was a volunteer
in the expedition of Sir Leopold
McClintock in 1859, which definitely
settled the question of Sir John Frank
lin's fate, sailed on a private expedi
tion, fitted out partly at his own ex
penso and partly at that of Lady
Franklin. His vessel was the Pando
ra, a bark-rigged steam yacht, 420 tons,
purchased of the government, by which
it had been built in 1861, for a naval
dispatch boat. His object was, if pos
sible, to go through the northwest pas
sage by the route which Sir .John
Franklin took, and incidentally to re
cover the records which Sir John, it is
believed, must have deposited in the
vicinity of King William's Land.
Capt. Young succeeded in getting
within twenty miles of King William's
Land, but at that point found the ice
impenetrable, and returned the same
season, arriving in England in Octo
ber. The next year he had intended
to renew the effort, but was sent out
in the Pandora by the British govern
ment with supplies for the Alert and
Discovery. These, as it happened,
were never received, being deposited
at Littleton island, the former camping
place of Capt. Buddington, at which
place Capt. Kares did not call. The
Pandora was afterward sold to James
Gordon Bennett, of the New York
Herald, who changed her name to the
Jeannette, and sent her out on a voy
age of discovery by way of Behring
Strait. She sailed under American
colors from San Francisco, July 8,
1879, commanded by ofllcers of the
United States navy, at the head of
whom were Lieut. George W. Do Long
and Lieut. Charles W. Chipp, who had
considerable Arctic experience on board
the Juniata, in 1873, when she went in
search of Capt. Buddington's portion
of the Polaris people. In connection

with that search these officers made a
long boat voyage. The Jeannetto's
whole company consisted of thirty-one
persons. Their route may be said to
have been hitherto untried, as far as
purely exploring expeditions are con
cerned, though the only ship's com
pany that ever passed through the
northwest passage entered the Arctic
regions by J3ehriug Strait.
