Wright's state ment. The City of Colnmhus left Boston at 3 p. m. on Thursday, carrying eighty passengers and a orew of forty-five. At 3:45 a. m. on Friday, off Gayhead light, bearing south half tubb*. the vessel struck on the outside of Devil's Bridge buoy. The wind was bloving a gale west by north. The vessel immediately filled and keeled over, the water breaking in and flooding the port-side saloon. All the passengers excepting a few women and children came on deck, nearly ail rearing Ufa preserver!*. All ihe boats were cleared away, but were immediately swamped. The majority of the pa3oer.ge.rs went overboard. Seven passengers lr;f' iiie vessel on a life raft, and about forty more took to the rigging. At 10:30 s. m., ihe Gayhead light boat put •off and took seven persons, and another life boat put off between 12 and 1. The revenue cutter Dexter came along about 12:30 aad sent off two boats. Twenty-one persons, on© of whom was dead, were placed aboard the Dexter, and after all the persons were taken from the vessel, the Dexter pioceededto New Badford. Three persons died after going aboard the Dexter. THE SAVED. The names of the saved are: Horace "Waterhouse. B«.th,Me , John White, Prince Edward's Island; J. W. Fairbanks, Gor ham, Me.; Thomas O'Leary, fireman; E. T.Briggs, Boston; Furber Hanson, Boston; A. A. Pittman, Brooklyn, steward; S. W. Wright, Boston, eaptnin; G. D. Whitoomb, Hudson, Mass., H. W.

Phillips, first assistant en gineer, John Madden, Charlottetown, Prince Edward's Island; T. R. Hammond, Goldsboro, Me. Four dead bodies of men were brought to this city on the Dexter, and one not identified. Two are identified as Helen Brooks, Northboro, Mass., and G. Fred Chandler, Hyde Park. The other is sup posed to be, from a card found in his pocket, a member of the firm of C. Rich ardson & Co. THE SUFFEEINQS OF THE PASSENQEBS. One p&ssengcr lost was A. J. Morton, lately connected with the Boston Globe, who was going SLiuth for his health. The ledges on which the City of Columbus struck are considered by mariners as one of the most daneerouR points on the coast. The ledges consist of a formation of sub merged rocks, constita'ing a double ledge, the outer stratum of which is called Devil's back, and both ledges being called Devil's bridge. The ledges are abreast Gayhead light on tbe mainland and extend a little to the southward of it. The outer ledge of theDevit''? back is about an eighth of a mile from the mainla d. On either side of the outer ledge is very deep water, and the upper part of the led^e is formed like tb.9g-ible of a house, so that a vessel strik ing it diagonally would naturally keel over on ner beam ends. The course of vessels is around Giyhend, to pass by the outer ledge on the south. The Oity of Columbus had eighty first class and twenty-two steerage paeset gers, about one third of whom were ladies and children, and a crew of forty-live. About lorty men took rc-fn;;e in '.herigkiing, where they remained nntil 10:30 a. in., when the life boat put off from G ;y betid and took away seven pass:; »;or#, one of whom died soon afterward1'. Snortly after noon another lifeboat put off to the vessel, and mean while the revenue cutter Dexter came a!ocg and sent off two boats. Twenty one men were taken from the wreck and placed aboard the Dexter, four of whom died afterwards. After all the persons on the wreck were taken off the Dexter sailed for this port where she arrived this morning. Tha total number of per sons saved is tweuty-three. Five dead bodies have been recovered, and 119 souls are unaccounted for. Seventeen of the saved and four of the dead were brought here, and six supposed to be living and one dead are at Gayhead.

The officers of the cutter Dexter furnished ihe following statement: About 12:30 we sighted a vessel ashore on the reef near Gayhead. Che wind was blowing a ga;e and a terrible sea whs run ning. Aa we approaohed we aaw tne vessel was a steamer and the* waves *t-re t>reakivg over her. We ao^iored on h?)r starboard quarter 200 or 300 y at lis awny. The cut ter's boat was at otice lowered 'Mid manned by five men iu ch rge of Lieut Rhodes, who biought off abveu men. A return, trip was made and one m>an was brought to the vessel. Lieut. Km Led v who then dis patched in the gig v.ith four m-:-., aud took eff four or five men. .Meanwhile the life boat bad transferred several men to the cutter, a ad at length the r:g ging was cleared of survivors. The vesstd iznls. in about four fathoms of water, and the rail'ng on tne bow was the onl« por tion of tiie hull visible. We fouud the mtu in the fore and main top aud rigging. It was impossible to row over the rigging, as tr:3 boats would have been pounded to pieces. The men in the nagiuj* were forced to jump into the sea and we caught them as they arose to the sorface and pulled them mto the boats. Some men oould not swim, ba" nearly every one in the rigging was saved. Eugene McGarry jumped from the rig ging; Lieutenant Rhodes jumped for him, bnt the boat was lifted fifteen feet on a crest and it was necessary to starboard to avoid his being crashed. McGarry wae not seen afterward*. At nearly the same in stant McGarry's brother was pulled into the boat. Captain Wright was among the last to leave the phi p. Tt»o men were frozen so stiff that they were unable to relinquish their hold on the ringing, were at leugth the only p- rs ns remaining on the steamer except the oaotain. Lient RhoJeB asked him to jump, ST. PAUL, MINN. SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 19, 1884. but he shouted, "3ave those men first." "THE! ABE FBOZES," was the lieutenant's answer. The captain then jumped, and, although he could not ■wim a stroke, he was rescued by Lieut. Kennedy. Lieut. Rhodes performed an heroic aot, whioh elicits hearty commen dation. Two men hung in the rigging, nnableto move, from exhaustion. The officer deter sained to save them at peril of his life. Beturning te the cutter, he asked Captain Gabrielson to give him a man to ■teer, that he might swim to the wreck and rescue the unfortunate men. The captain granted the request, and.Lieui. Rhodes was placed in the boat, bat, on Bearing the steamer, it was foand to be folly to attempt to go alongside. Lieutenant Rhodes refused to abandon the attempt, and sang ont to the men in the lifeboat to take him to the wreck. Lien tenant Rhodes boarded the lifeboat and, tying a rope about him, waited until within about thirty feet of the vessel, whes he sprang into the sea. He nearly reached the wreck when he was struck b? a piece of timber on the leg and sank. He whs pulled aboard the boat and then taken to the cutter. His leg waa found to bti cut, but after changing his olothing, and as the sea was smooth, he determined on a last attempt. He ajrain set out for the wreck and this time the men were reached. One was hanging by the feet and arms through the ratlires with his head downward. Lieu;. Rhodes put a bowline about him, when he murmured, kfor GoC'h sake don't toueh me." Tho man waa fourd to be Mr. Rich ardson and he was pla -ed in the boat, but died before reaching the cstter. Abeut $400 was found in a wallet m his pocket. The seoond man, the last person removed from the wreck, was in the ratlines in the weather rigging, and although breathing when placed in the boa:, also expired be fore reaching tho outter. A. F. Pitmann, chief steward of steam er, said: (I w -s in my berth when the vessel struck, and was not awakened by the shook. A general alarm was £ iven. and I hurried into my clothes and lsf t my state room. The greatest ex citemont prevailed, and the women were rushing about the cabins in their night dresses. On reaching tbe deck I found men hoisting the jib. In about twenty minutes the steamer listed. The houses were carried away by tbesea, and almost immediately the deck began to break up. About 7 o'clock, as the pas sengers came on dock, they were swept overboard by scores. The scene w»s hcrr^ble. Afrer the vessel 'iuted I m?.de my wuy :ilang the wind ward side, upon an i-■^lio.'-d plane, and into the. rigging where fcbout 40 persosp, all m t, h d taken refuge. There we clung for life, with our fingers benumbed, and with floating corpses and debris at our feet. I siw one man knocked into the sea when topmast he-.d b-oke.

PROVISION AND CATTLE TRADE. Shares on the New York Exchange Somewhat More Unsettled. CHICAGO. [Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Chicago, Jan. 18.—The activity of the laat four days was followed to-day hy one of comparative quietness, but the feeling etill remains unsettled, and 90c b freely talked for May wheat. There were less rumors in circulation, and the chief aim of the majority pf operators was to even np their, tirades and go slow for a time, and many believe the end of this week will see the downward tendency of wheat ohecked for the time be ing, and while no great reaction is looked for in the immediate future, as there is nothing in the outlook at present to war rant any decided bullish opinion, yet the faot that tbe market has been largely over sold this week may bring about an up ward turn when all the shorts commence to eover. The market for May opened active and unsettled, with sales simulta neously at 96}4c, whioh was M@%9 lower than the close last night. The shorts commenced filling, and good lines were taken by J. K, Bryant for the Adamses, Roche and a few others, while Lester, Comstock and Hobbs wore free sellers. The buying proved too much for the bulls, and prioes advanced with a few small reactions to 97^c, when the offer ings became heavy and a break to 96%c ooourred. The light receipt/; and iiberpl purchases of local scalper? for auciher upturn caused a sharp rdvance to 97%. Operat ors who wer<i buyers &t the open ing unload J finely and pu f * out heavy line? of shorts,and the feeling chang ed to a decidedly weak one, and was aided by rjmora of financial weakness in the east, '.ad dull and heavy cables, and beforo the close at one o'clock ail the advance of tLo the day was lost, the market closing at 9OV2C or %c below !a3t night. On call tracing was tha largest for many months, aggregating bushels. Comsrook and Lester continued to hammer the mar ket, and with a moderate buying by Lind blom, Ira Holmes, not Jones, who were covering shorts, but were unable to turn the market and a deoline to 96o fol lowed on Mi curb, and in the offices a moderate amount changed hands at 96@ ihji/gc, the last Bales being at iifl'yo During the past two days a small inquiry has been made by millers, but their wants were readily supplied from the car lots on traok. Crittenden <fc Harvey say: "Wheat opened weak }£o lower than yesterday's latest prices, but rallied about lc on some fair bnying and oovering by timid shorts. The advance did not last long, however, as offerings increased and some of the ear ly j ay erg thought btst to realize,and when local talent saw ths point they helped the decline along to the best of their ability, closing at a low point. We believe there is more safety in the buyer side of wheat than in short sales at the low prices pre vailing, and when the selling eraza wears awey the market will do better. Corn has shown le«s activity than wheat, but advanced quite Bharply from the opening prioes in sym pathy with the advance in wheat and pro- Iis, subsequently selling down %a the top prioes reached and closing y at quotations. The market pre no special feature. Looal opinions se?.m somewhat divided a3 to tho probable course of prices. There is no question but what oorn is relatively higher than wheat, but there is a good shipping de mand even at current prices, and oorn is b ing used for so many purposes while wheat is used only for food. The damage to the orop is being verified by later reports, and our advices continue more discouraging than ever from sections where we supposed the orops were in good condition. We believe in better prioes, and think time will prove our prediction consistent. Provisions opened weak and at the low point of the day, rallying sharp ly on good buying by looal parties, and averaged active and firm until the weaker feeling prevailed in grain, when by some [niftooilaneoua selling by looal scalpers a moderate decline w^s credited, closing up, however, at a shade better prices than yes terday. We can see nothing in tho market to cause short 6elliag. In fact appearances would indicate that oper'tors who h.iva little faith n the product had batter not sell at all for awhile, for unless all sign^s fall, better prices can bo looked for. Estimate for ;o-iuor.-ow 10.000 to 12,000." Suepard & Peacock say: "The market ipened W6ak bn-; is yielding. A3 fast as ;he bears desired some of the more :imid ones commenced to cover, which started others, ana under the demand thus sreated the market advanced about lo per bushel. But the moment any urgency in tne demand bee ime apparent the mfr let lost its hold and fell off fascer than ic advanced, closed weak and pretty charly mowing that its only support comes from the shorts. The cable advices were heavy and our receipts were higher. To-day's ihipments of wheat exceeded for a long while baok the day's receipts. The mar ket looks and acts heavy. Corn at the opening of the market hung on 57c for May and under a weak showing nntil the shorts commenced to cover, whioh turned the market, and helped along by an advance in wheat it rose to about 58e for May. After the short demand was satis fled the market eased off, become weaker and closed soft at 57} 4 'c May. The day's receipts (ElnbE. were smaller than yesterday's, but still were fair, and the inspection quite satis factory. Oats receipts, 80 cars; ship ments, 78,200 bushels. This market was quiet, strengthening and weakening with corn and otherwise devoid of special f fea tures. Trading in corn, while not so large, was almost equal to that of yesterday. The receipts showed a falling off and aggre gates 379 oars, 159 being contract. The crowded condition of the elevators' ia given aa one of the chief reasons for the increased arrivals. Another is that interior shippers who have their oorn cribbed are afraid to send it forward to apply on short contracts as they were in doubt of its going into store in time for delivery. The feeling on near futures was steady and closing sales at 1 o'clock showed an advance of Js"@M°» but on the call all the advance was lost. May, whioh is the chief deal, opened un settled at 56J>£@56J'8 at the same time in different parts cf the crowd. Baying ti fill shorts was lively for a time and prices soon reaohed 58c, when liberal off erings caused a break to B7j£c at 1 p. m., which w.« continued until the close of the call, when 57c was again touched. Oats ruled quiet en 'ehtt ge, with fluc tuations confined to a very narrow range. Up to 1 p. m. at 36%c, and on the call a decline of %@KC occurred. Trading in provisions was fair and a stronger feeling developed and an ad vance in prioes followed. Offerings in general were not so large and less specu lative inquiry existed. Some little at tention is attraoted to the falling off in the packing in the west, bat stocks have increased on acoount of the small con snmptive demand. Less life was exhibited in the cattle mar ket to-day, and the feeling was easier on all but prime, which were nigh at the opening on account of the supply being limited. Common and medium shipping steers abow a reduction of 25©40e during this week. The best butchers' stock that has ruled so strong for the past fifteen days was barely as steady, and the com mon Boris sold lower. The bulk of the arrivals this morning was of tho poorest quality, and the num bers left . over last night were greater than any day this week, making the supply of poor and common the larg- j eat of any day this week. Rec&iots were I 6,590. The hog market was dull and uneaiis- j factory all day, with the feeling weak and sellers were forced to accept 6@10j re duction to close out, although a fe* firm lots of fancy selected made nearly as prioes as yesterday. Paokers were doing their best to break prices. Shippers seemed to wast less than u3ual, and specu lators were faint hearted aud shy. About r.6,000 were on sale and the chances were a good many would be left over unless prices rated yet lower than at the opening. Receipts were 23, 000. The Bheep ruarkst was dull and prioes showed a large deoline from the opening of the week. Receipts are accn mulating, a larger number being left over last night than any night this week. Ship pers say they cannot get oars, hence can not buy. We quote common $firstname.lastname@example.org; fair, $4 email@example.com; the best, $firstname.lastname@example.org. i Receipts 3,300.

Selling was most pronounced in Western Union, and at one time the stock was very heavy and looks like very much lower. The Gould brokers took some 15,000 shares, and this steadied the stook. Chey continued their support until the close, taking in all about 20,000 shares. The Grangers were all weak dar ing early hours, led by the Chicago, Bur lington & Qai-aoy.
