RICHMOND WHIG.
SATURDAY MORNING...AUG. 19, 1865.
MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF A YOUNG
GIRL—SHE COMMITS SUICIDE.
The New York papers contain the following
On Wednesday morning last. Ellen Owens. 16
years of age. an intelligent, prepossessing girl, who
resided with her *Uler, Mrs. F. Cooley, in Willow
street. Hoboken, disappeared from her home, and
although inquiries were made in every direction,
no tidings of her whereabouts could be obtained
until about 8 o'clock on Sunday evening. Mr.
Cooley, who w as recently a captain ou one of the
Southern steamers, arrived home on Sunday, and
learning of the unaccountable absence of his
sister-in-law. left home about 8 o'clock for the
^urnose of making further inquiry for her in New
l poll arriving at the ferry house, foot of Bar
clay street, Mr. Cooley met the girl on the bridge,
aud in reply to his inquiry as tv where she had
been, *he replied that »he had been staying with
her sister in Brooklyn, which statement he knew
to be untrue, as a messenger had been sent there
on Friday. Ue s* .! nothing further upon the sub
ject. and the two return;d home. While crossing
the river to Hobokeu. Ellen held her handkerchief
to her month, and Mr. ( . observed her make a mo
tion as if in the act of throwing something opt of
the window, and heard a splash iu the water.—
The family spent the ev.uing together, during
which Ellen in: n-d a younger s ster that she
had taaen som< i idanum. with the view of poi
soning herself. >. ,.:<h fact was communicated to
Mrs. Cooley, but she and her husband supposed
the statement wa3 a fabrication.
The inmates of the house subsequently retired,
bat about 1 o'clock yesterday morning Mrs. C.,
reeling appreheusive that her sister might have
swallowed poison proceeded to her apartment
and found her sleeping soundly, and apparently
cot under the iufiuence of any drug. Mrs. C.
again visited the girl’s room al*>ut 5 o’clock yes
terday morning, and found her lying asleep in
the same position that she had left her and, feel
ing somewhat allirmed, had Dr. Chabort called
in. Upon eacamina'ion, the Doctor stated that
the was under the effects of laudanum, and was
past recovery. Everything possible was done to
restore the ' girl to consciousness, but without j
avail, and she expired at about 8 o’clock A. M
The motive for seif-destruction Ls not knowu.— i
Coroner Avery was notified, and will hold an in- 1
quest this afternoon.

The Great Eastern has returned to Sheerness aud
her consorts have arrived at St. John’s. The late
of the cable is at last officially known. It parted

water. Ineffectual attempts to raise it were made,
aud the Great Eastern has returned to England tor
stronger grappling arrangements. Tte point
where the break was made has been buo.ted, and
the electrician. Mr. Var.'ey, is confident that the
cible can be raised.

THE GREAT EASTERN RETURNS TO ENG
LAND.
Heart's Content, Ang. 16, via Aspv Bay, Aug.
17,—The British war steamq(» Terrible aud Gala
tea arrived at St. Johns, N. P., at 9 o’clock on
Tuesdav evening, the 16th.
The steamship Great Eastern returned to sheer
ness ou the 11th. Capt. Napier reports as follows
“TheCable parted on Wednesday, the 2d inst ,
at noon, ia 1960 fathoms of water. It was then
grappled for three different times, and raised 1.200,
900 and 600 fathoms respectively. Each time (lie
gruppli'g broke, but the cable remained unbro
keu. The Great Eastern then returned to Eng
land for stronger and better grappling gear.”
Mr. Varley. one of the electricians, writes most
encouragingly in regard to the cable. He nays
“ We found no difficulty whutever in grappling
the cable even in the greatest depth of water, am
soon as proper tackle is prepared, we will proba
bly commence grappling tor the cable again one
hundred miles east ot the break, where the water !
is only 1.600 fathoms deep. The buoy roles the >
waves well, beiug fastened by a piece ot cen i
detuned cable.”
Mr. Field is in good health and spirits.
The following is the concluding portion of the ■
diary of Cyrus W. Field, Esq., giving an account
ol the disaster to the cable
Wednesday August 2.—At 6.27 A. M., on exam- |
ining the insulation tests it was discovered that
there was a partial loss of insolation. The ship ]
1 was soon afterward stopped, and the cable was I
transferred to the picking up gear at the vow«, I
and the operation of hauling iu was commenced. |
By noon tlie eugiue used for picking up was stop
ped for want of water for a considerable time.—
Two miles had been recovered and the cable was
cut to see whether the fault had come on board.
At 12.30 P. M., the cable caught and chafed on
the month ot tne hawse-pipe aou was with con
siderable difficulty removed, and at 12.45 it parted
ou b:ard, where it was injured just behind the
stoppers, and in a moment the end disappeared in
the water. The distance tun in the last tvveuty
four hours was 116 miles: cable paidout 132sides,
recovered two miles. Depth of water 1.9ot>fath.
ums. Total distance from Yalentia 1.063 milts.
Total distance to Heart’s Content. Total of cable
paidout 1.312 miles—equal to 14 per cent.
We steamed back toward Yalentia twelve miles
and commenced dragging fur the cable.
Thursday, 4 A. M.— It being evident fiom the
stralu that Ike grapple had caught the cable, we
began to haul it up, and at 11.50. when 1,150 la
1 thorns of the grapple rope had been got ou
board, the tackle broke near the ship, and 1,400
fathoms of the rope sank with the cable to the
bottom. A bony was now lowered, with 2 400
fathoms of cable, and a '’mushroom’’ to hold and
mark the spot. Dnnng the operation ol picking up
the machinery gave way. It is supposed that a
! t oth broke olf by the strain, and this getting be
tween the spur wheel smashed the latter. This ac
cident happened twice, and the operation of haul
ing in had to be performed by the capstans.
On F riday. Saturday and Sunday the weather
was unfavorable for recovering th» oahtp
On Monday, 7tn, we lowered another grapuel.
At 12.20 P. M. commenced dragging for the calde.
At 8 P. M. began to haul in and continued to do
so slowlv all night.
Tuesday Stb.—At 7.50 A. M.. one thousand
fathoms of the grapnel had been hauled in when
the shackel.s broke just inside the ship. We lost
iu this attempt one thousand five hundred fathoms
of rope. A second buoy was lowered to mark the
spot.
The balance of this day and all the next was
fully occupied in having uew shackles made lor
the hauliug-in rope asteru the capstan, and making
preparation* for another attempt to recover the
cable. Had the apparatus been ready the weather
on Wednesday was much too rough to attempt any
i operation. The two buoys rode out the gale in this
depth lierfectlv. .
Thursday. August 10,7 o clock, A. M.—" e be
gan to lower the grapnel, and at 8.55 had out
2.460 fathoms, all that w. s on board the ship, and
! commenced dragging for the cable and continued
■ until the afternoon, w hen we began to haul iu
slowly. «...
: On Friday, the llth. at 6 A. M . we hmshed
hauling in the 2460 fathoms of rope, wlien the
grapnel came up foul with its own chaiu.
j At il A. M we began to lower the grapnel
; again, and as soon as all the 2 460 fathoms were
paid oat we commenced dragging until 3.65 P. M.
when we began to haul in slowly. It war so.n
evident, by the gieat strain, that the grapnel had
caught the cable.
At 7 **• M.’when 710 fathoms had been recov
ered. the ropa parted, and, as there was not suffi
cient rope on board the Great Eastern to resume
grapnelling, it was decided that she should return
at once to England.

JEFF. DAVIS’ FAMILY AT ALBANY, EN
ROUTE FOR MONTREAL.
Three children of Jeff. Davis arrived here this
morning on t:e St. John, stopped at the Delavan
House tor a few hours, and left od the Rensse
lear and Saratoga railroad for Monties'. There
were two sons and a daughter, younger.
The names of the sons were Jefferoon and Wil
Ham. They were accompanied by the mother of
Mrs. Davis, a white servaot girl, and a man ser
vant. A large crowd was attracted to the I>e!a
van House. wh»re quite a disgusting scene took
place. A number of women went in. and, amid
the most extravagant professions of delight and
afle-tion. repeatedly kissed the children. While
the children should not be held accountable for
the deeds of their lather,there is certainly nothing
in ihem nor tbeir parents that entitles them to
any peculiar manifestations of regard oyer hun
dreds of respectable children of loyal parent
age.— Albany Journrl. August 15.

The hub Treasury is understood to have tempon
railly suspended its sales of coio, in view of the

the Government could have sold has been passed
upon the market to close the Ketehum accounts,
and it is estimated that about two millions and a

THE BREADSTUFF'S TRADE.
We copy the following valuable aud iuteteating
article from tbe New York Journal of Com
merce :
We have now reached the season of the year
when we can overlook the future for a little way
in advaucc. and ascertain with some degree of
exactness the probable foreign demand for Ameri
can c:rej!s. The European crops last jear weie
far above the average, and this was sensibly felt
in the diminished call for shipment of bread
stuffs from the United States. The official tables
for the whole country aio not bruueht down to a
recent date, but we cau give a fair idea of the
change to which wo allude by presenting from
our record a comparison of the shipments from
this port. The following willsh ,.w the quantities
shipped hence in each of the last four years :
1863. 1863.
Wheat, bush.‘.8.889.914 56,664 756
Flour, brls. 3,110 646 2,961,618
Corn, bush.12.456.265 12 030,848
Meal, brls. 108,386 132,606
1864. 1865.
Wheat, bu*h.15.424.889 12,193 433
Flour, bris. 2,627.338 1.918.693
Corn, bash... 7,533,431 846,831
Meal, brls. 140,561 105 142
Even these figures do not tell the whole story ot
the decreased Europe .u ilemind.becau.se a por
tion of the American crop, faiiing of a market
there, has sought purchasers in less favorable
markets. It is very seldom that so many causes
combine as were operating last jear to cut ofTour
trade. It is trua that when the English crop
fails, either France, or Germany, or Spain, or
Russia, or all together, msv be bletsed with unu
sual abundance, and thus divide with us the ad
vantage to he gained in supplying the need.—
France nsualty laies sufficient for her wants, and
seldom produces any larga excess, she every
jear ships firm her northern pcits very liberal
supplies across the channel for a ready market in
England: but unless her crop is unusually ubun
bant she obtains at her Mediterranean ports) from
•Spain and other available sources, a compensato
ry amount in 1861 there was a large deficiency
in the French crop, and this gave a very vaioahle
trade to the United States, us all Europo was
more or less deficient the same year.
