Tie' TrilitHif' account says: "The

An exiiniinalion of the (ii-gon showed
that iii' had two holes in her port

The boats had been lowered when the

it Mould be impossible to
brim! her into port. The work of
li r.-viiig its passengers to the waiting
Kchooner iuul pilot-boat was begun at
once. The women and children went
first, the captain leaving the ship last.
It was eight hours from the time of
the collision to the time when the
captain of the Oregon reached the

One of the sailors of tho steamship
Oregon this morning said that imme
diately after the collision a hulk of
tho sailing vessel was seen drifting
slowly by on tho fort side of the
steamer, grazing lur sides as she
passed aatcm. It was thought that
she sank as soon Is she cleared tho
Oregon, and as none of her crew are
on tho Kulda, he presumed they were
all drowned.
dipt. Cottier of the Oregon giies
the following account of the disaster:
"The ((regon left Liverpool at 110
o'clock on Saturday morning of liWt
week. We had fine weather all le
way across, nml the weather was clcir
at 4 :!K) o'clock Sunday morning, wif
a fresh breeze from tho west, when
sailing vessel suddenly loomed up
When firHt noticed she showed 110
light, but when she was too close to
clear off alio showed a white light. I
cannot suy on what part of her. Tlie
Oregon was running under a full head
of steam Tho vessel struck us amid
ships and stove a big hole in tho port
side. All tho water-tight compart-'
monts wore closed at tlie time. Hut
((regon went down about 12:4'i
o'clock. Hhe floated for about
eight hours after she struck
and now lie in twenty-two fathoms
of water, north h.lf west from Watch
Hill, L. I. The tops of her three
masts aro visible above the water, and
tho vessel is upright. She went down
head llrst. We worked from the mo
ment of tho collision us if wo expected
her to sink, hut I tlid not believe she
was going to sink. We took extreme
precautious. Tho pumps were of no
use, 1 might say. 'e worked them,
of course, and to their full capacity,
but they had no chance against the
mass of water which eventually car
ried her down. The usual watch wis
on deck at the time of the accident,
and no time was lost in awakening
tho passengers Few of them heard
or felt the shock, as all were in bed at
the time. 80011 after the accident oc
curred a steamer passed, a National
boat 1 think, hut went on. The ves
sel that ran into us must have sunk
immediately, as when we looked she
w s not in sight. She must have
gone down with all on board. When
I found that the vessel was sinking I
took the necessary steps to save our
passengers. We first sent up a rocket
its a signal of distress, then the
Uinta were lowered, but before
H o'clock pilot boat No. 1 1
hove in sight. She came up to us be
tween 7 and 8 o'clock, and two hours
later the schooner Fannie A. Gorltam
of Belfast hove to. The passengers
and crow of the Oregon were trans
ferred to tho pilot-boa!, and tho
schooner in our own boats. Four
bundled were placed on board tho
pilot-boat, and the balance, about
(KM), on board the schooner. All the
pavt?ngcrn were transferred by 11
o'clock.. The steamship Fnlda of the
Nortb-(orinan Line liove in sight
about uihiii or a tittle before. She
was within a half mile from tho Ore
gon when the latter sank. There
were no scenes on board the Oregon.
I never expected to see such an affair
go off so easily,
The cargo of tho vessel consisted of
lhoO tons of general merchandise,
valued at $250,0((0. The vessel was
valued at II, LTiO.CHK). Both cargo and
vessel were insured abroad. The
tpicslion which is now upioriiiost
among the passengers of the ((regon
is whether they can recover from the
Cumin! Company the value of their
baggagu which was lost.

urday the measures submitted by Mr.

Ireland were unfavorably received,
ami that the project, if jFcrsissted in,
will lead to the disruption of the CaU
inet. Tho Obtentr state that Mr.
(iladstone's draft, aa printed and
handed to the Cabinet, deals exclu
sively with expropriation, for which a
colossal gum will be reouired. The
administration of the fund is to be in
trusted to an Irish 1im1 Usly, the con
stitution of w hich is left blank in the
draft, but which the Ministers were
informed would be of the character of
an Irish l'arliainent.
The fV this afternoon states that
at tho Cabinet meeting held Saturday.
Mi Trevolyan, Secretary for Scotland
and formerly Chief Secretary for Ire
land,' and Mr. Kdward Heneago,
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster,
both tendered their resignations. The
reason given by both gentlemen for
their action, was their disinclination
to support tho Irish jiolicy outlined at
the meeting by Mr. (ilndslono as that
which ho had 'decided to pursue.
