Wright's state ment. The C.iy of ColnmHus left Boston at '.) p. m. on Thn-sday, carrying eighty passengers and a orew of forty-five. At 3:4. r > a. m. on Friday, off Guyhead light, bearing south h-df mast, the vessel struck on Ihe outside of Devil's Bridge buoy. The wind was blo"iytr r. gal., west by north.

Seven ie vessel on a life raft, and about forty more took to the rigging. At 10:30 a. m , Ihe Gayheadlight boat put off and took sr-^fn persons, and another life boat pui en 12 and 1. The revenue enttpr D.-_tev came along about 12:30 and sent off two boats. Twer.ry-one persons, ono of whom was de?..i. were placed aboard the Dexter, and after all the persons were taken from the vessel, the Dexter proceeded to New Badford. Three persons died after going aboard the Dexter. THE SAVED. The nsme3 oT 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; Farber Hanson, Boaton; A. A. Pittmas, Brooklyn, steward; S. W. Wright, Boston, eapti.ia: G. D. Whitoomb, Hudson, Mass., H. W.

Phillips, first assistant en gineer, John Madden, Charlottetown, Prince Edward's Island; T. R. Hammond, Goldsbcro, Me. Four dead bodies of men were brought to this city on the Dexter, and one not identified. Two a'-e identified as Helen Brooks, Ncrthboro, Mass., and G. Fred Chandler, Hyde Park. The other is sup posed to br, from a card found in his pocket, a member of the firm cf C. Rich ard-son & Co. THE SUFFEEINCSS OF THE FASSENQEBS. One pß&scngcr lost was A. J. Morton, lately connected with the Boston Globs, who was goit;g south for his health. The ledges on which the City of Columbus struck are consider -d by mariners as one of the most dangerous 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 the mainland and extend a little to the southward of it. The outer ledge of the Devil* back is about an eighth of a mila from the maiula d. On either side of the outer ledge is very deep water, and the upper part of the ledije is formed like th9g-;ble of a house, so that a vessel strik ing* it diagonally would naturally keel over on i.er be;in ends. The coarse of vessels is around Gayhead, to pass by the outer ledge on the sou'.h. Tne City of Columbus had eighty first class and twenty-two steemi'.e paesei gers, about one third "of whom were ladies and children, and a crew of forty-five. Abont forty men took r irj -rsrigtring, whore th^y remained until 10:30 a. in., when the life boat put off from G iyhead and took r.way rr^r of whom died soon afterward". Bnortly after noon aaother lifeboat put off to the vessel, and mean while the revenue ontter Dexter came aiocg and sent off two boats. Twenty one men were taken from the wreck and placed aboard the Dexter, four of whom died afterwards. Alter all tho persons on the wreck were taken off the Dexter sailed for tbis port where she arrived this morning. Tha total numbar of per sons saved is twenty-three. Five dead bodies have beer, 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 ate at Gayhead.

The offieera of tha cutter Dexter famished ihe foliowiug statem at: About 12:30 we sighted a vessel anhore on the reef ntar Gay head. Ihe wind was blowing a gae auri a terrible sea w-is run ning. As we approach dwe s-".v t.ia vt.«sj! was a steamer aod the. wav.s *ere t.reakn.g over her. We anchored ou her starboa d ■inar-.er 200 or 300ya:!.'-i away Che cut ter's boat was at once lowered '-.nd manned by rye metr iv ch-.rge of Lieut Rhodes. wh> brought off Bsven men. A return trip was made and one man wr-s brou« the vessel. Lieut. Kennedy was then dis patched in the gig with four m- , aud took cfi four or five msn. Meanwhile the life brrsit had transferred several men to tbe cntter, and at length the rig isg was cleared of survivors. Che vessel in about for.r fai horns <-f water, snd railmg on the bow svas tr.o only por tion of tne hull visible. Wo found the men in the fore and main top and rigging. It w is impossible to row over tne ri^/ing, tsa tho bocts would have bi'eu pounded to pieces. The men in the i:»:i_-iug were forced to jump into the sta and we caught them as they arose to the surface and pulled them into ther bo.:ts. Some men could not swim, ba- nearly every one in the rigging waa saved. Eugene McGarry jumped from the rig ging; Liei: vmt Rhodes jumped for him, bnt the boat w*s iif.ed fifteen feet ou a creat and it was necessary to starboard to avoid his being crashed. MoG*rry was not seen afterwards. At nearly the same in stant McGarry's brother was palled into the boat. Captain Wright was among the last to leave the Phip. T*o men were frozen so stiff that they ware unable to relinquish thbir hold on the rising, were at leagth the only p- rs na remaining on the s'eamer except the oa >tain. Lieut Rhodes asked him to jump. ST. PA! L. MTNN.. SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 19. 1684. but he shouted, "Save those men first." "THEY ABE FEOZES," was the lieutenant's answer. The captain then jumped, and, although he could not awim a 6troke, he was rescued by Lieut. Kennedy. Lieut. Rhodes performed an heroio act, which elici„ hearty commen dation. Two men hung in the rigging, nnableto move, from exhaustion. The officer deter—iined to save them at peril of hia life. Betnrning te the cntter, he asked Captain Gabrielson to give him a man to steer, that he might awim to the wreck and rescue the unfortunate men. The captain granted the request, and.-Lieui. Rhodes was placed in the boat, bat, on searing the steamer, it waa 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. Lieutenant "nodes boarded the lifeboat n:d, lying a rope about him, waited un'..l within abont thirty feet of the vessel, whe<:; he sprang into the sea. He nearly reached the wreck when he was siruck by a piecs of timber on the leg and Rank. He wns unlled aboard the boat and then taken to the cutter. His leg waa found lo b>.. cat, tut after changing his olothing, and as tha sea was smooth, he detarmiued on a last attempt. He njraia set ont for the wreck and thi.a tiino the men wore reich^d. One waa hanging by the feet and arms through the ratlines with his head downward. Lieuf. lihodea put a bowline abont him, when he murmured, 'far God's sake don't touch me." Tho man v/as 'our dto be Mr. Rich ardson and he waa pla ed in the boat, bat died before reaching tbe catter. Abent $400 was found in v wuliet in his pocket. The B&ocnd man, the latt person removed from the wreck, was ie the ratlines in the weather ringing, and alrhoagh breathing when placed in the boa;, also expired be fore reaching tho cntter. A. Y. Pitrn _m, chief steward of steam er, s-.id: 'I w.-is in my berth when the vessel struck, and was not awakened by tbe shock. A general alarm was £ iven. and I hurried into my olothea and lsfi: my state room. The greatest ex citement prevailed, and the women were rushing about the cabins in their right dresses.

Shares on the New York Exchange Somewhat lore Unsettled. CHICAGO. [Special Telegram to the Glubo. 1 Chicago, Jan. 18.—The activity of the last four days was followed to-day by one of romparative quietness, but the feeling et:'!l remains unaett'ed, and 90c ia freely talked for May wheat. There were Icsb rumors in circulation, and the chief aim of the majority pf operators was to even up their trades and go slow for a time, and many believe the end of thia week will see the downward tendency of wheat ohecked for tha time be ing, and while no great reaction is looked for in the immediate future, aa thsre is nothing in the outlook at present to war rant any decided bullish opinion, yet the faot that the market has been largely over sold this week may bring about an up ward turn when all the shorts commence to cover. The market for May opened active and unsettled, with sales simulta neously at 96 l£c, whioh was }-£@%c low6r than the close last night. Tha shorts commenced filling, ..ud good linea were taken by J. X, Bryant for the Adamses, Roche and a few others, while Letter, Comstock and Hobbs were free Bsllere. Thß baying proved too much for the bulls, and prices advanced with a few small reactions to 97! 40, when the ofler inrjß became hoavy and a break to DG;V[c. oocurred. The light receipt/, and libe-pl purchases of lccal soalperf- for atir. br ; r upturn cdu:-;ed a sharp rdvance to 97;^. Operat ors who were buyers at the even ing unload i finely and pu*; out heavy r ie feelicg chang ed to •• • ik one, and w:'.s aided by '-j—tors of financial weakness In the east, '•.ad dull and heavy cables, and before t..e cioae at cue o'clock ail the advance of tLo the dr.y was lost, tha market closing r.t 9Z%00v%a boiow last night. On call trading was the largest for many months, aggregating ;VX)0,000 bushels. Con: and Lester continued to hammer the mar ket, and with a moderate baying by Lind blom, Ira Holmes, not Jones, who were | oovering shorts, but were unable to turn tha mark-t and a decline to 96c fol lowed on i.ni curb, and in the offices a moderate amount changed hands at 9tJ@ 96^0, the last sales being at 96}^o During the past two daya a small inquiry has been made by millers, but their wants wsie readily supplied from tho car lota on track. Crittenden & Harvey say: "Wheat opened weak }£o lower than yesterday's latest pricss, but rallied about lc on some fair buying aad oovering by timid shorts. The advance did not last long, however, as offerings increased and some of the ear ly foyers thought beat to realize,and when loaal talent saw Ihs point they helped the decline along to the best of their ability, closing at a low point. We believe there is more safety in tho buyer side of wheat than in short sales at the low prices pre vailing, aad when the selling craz i wears away the market will do better. Corn has shown le=s activity than wheat, bat advanced quite siiarply from the opening prices in sym pathy with ths advance in wheat and pro visions, subsequently selling down %o from the top prices reaohed and closing staady at quotations. The market pre sents no spsciiil feature. Local opinions -recm Sr.mewhvit divided B3 to tho probable coursti of prices. There is no question but what oorn ia relatively higher thau wheat, but thera is a good shipping de mand even at current prices, and corn is b ing used for so many purposes while wheat is used only for food. The damage to tha orop ia being venfitd b7 later report?, and our advices continue more dissouraging than ever from sections where we supposed the crops were in good condition. We believe in batter prioes, and think time will prove our prediotion consistent. Provisiona opened weak and at the low point of the day, rallying sharp ly on good buying by looal parties, and nv£rAjjed active and firm until the weaker feeling prevailed in grain, when rry come ini«.eoilH_eouB selling by looal scalpers a moderate decline w-s credited, closing up, however, at a shada better prices thau yes terday. Wa cfiu see nothirjg in the market to cause short selling. In fact appearances would indicate that operators who h.iva little faith in the product had batter not *eil at all for awhile, for unless f.U Bign^ fail, better prioes can be looked for. Estimate for to-morrow 10.000 to 12.000." S'lep-trd & Poacock say: "The market opeoed weak bai ia yielding. A3 fast a3 the beara deairad some of tha more ticnid ones oommenoed to cover, which started othsr3, ana under the demand thus created tha market advanced about lc per bushel. But tha moment auy urgency in tha demand becime app-irtnt tho mar ket lostits hoid and fell off friB:er tp.an it advanced, closed weak and pretty clarly showing that its only support comes from the 6horts. The cable advicea were heavy and our receipts were higher. To-day's shipments of wheat exceeded for a long while back the day's receipts. The mar ket looks and acts heavy. Corn al the opening ot the market hung on 57< ' for May and under a weak showing unti I the shorts commenced to cover, which. II turned the market, and helped along by ai J advance in wheat it rose to about 58e fo ' May. After the short demand was satis " fied the market eased of B 1 become weaker and closed sof lat b1}4,0 May. The day's receipt were smaller than yesterday's, but still were fair, and the inspection quite satis factory. Oata receipts, 80 cars; ship ments, 78,200 bushels. This market was quiet, strengthening and weakening with corn and otherwise devoid of special fea tures. Trading in corn, while not so large, was almost equal to that of yesterday. The reoeipta showed a falling off and aggre gates 379 can, 159 being contract. The crowded condition of the elevators' is given as one of the chief reasons for the increased arrival*. Another ia that interior shippers who have their corn oribbed are afraid to send it forward to apply on short contracts as they were in doubt of ita going into store in time for delivery. The feeling on near futurea was steady and closing sales at 1 o'clock showed an advance of Je@M°» but on the call all the advance was lost. May, whioh ia the chief deal, openad un settled at oG^ajoGJg at the aame time in different parts cf the crowd. Baying ti fill shorta was lively for a time and prices soon reached 5Sc, when liberal off erings caused a break to 57^c at 1 p. ra., which was continued until ths close of the call, when 57c waa again touched. Oats ruled quiet en 'crn gb, with fluc tuations confined to a very narrow range. Up to 1 p. m. at 36-^e, and on the call a decline of %@%o occurred. Trading in provisiona 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 attracted to the falling off in tho packing in the west, but stocks have increased on acoonnt of the small con sumptive dematd. Less life was exhibited in the cattle mar ket to-day, and the feeling waa easier on all but prime, which were nigh at the opening on account of the s'lpt.ly bein^ limited. Common and mediini shipping steers show a reduction of L\" 40e during this week. The beat bntchers' that has ruled so strong for the past fifteen days was barely as steady, and the com mon sorts sold lower. The bulk of the arrivals this morning was of tho poorest quality, and the num bers left . over last night were ir than any day thia week, making the supciy of poor and common tha larg est of any • peek. Receipts were The hog and m: factory all d.iy, with Ihe feeling weak and sellers w^re forced to accept a^iOj re duction to eIo»e out, although a fe*? firm lots of fancy selected made noarly c.. prices as yesterday. Paokers were doing ;heir best to break prices. Shippers seemed to want less than usual, and specu lators were faint hearted and eny. A'jout r.6,000 wero on sale and tha chances were a good many would be left over unless prices ruled yet lower than at the cpeninfj. Receipts were 23, -000. The sheep market was dull aad priota showed a large deoline from tho opening of the week. Receipts are accu mulating, a larger number being left over last night than any night this week.
