female figure head, about seven feet In height, with
her hands extruded, and a wreath upon her head
and green stripes on her dresn. The fietire is on
l>«ard the Mary Morris, at tho foot of Pine *treet
It wa« the Impression of all on board the barque
that the wreck wa» that of an iron propel.er, sup
posed the City of Glasgow. From the clreumstanco
that no other iron vessel has been reported lost, ex
cept the stesmer Helen Sloman some Jbree years
bark, appearances favor the belief that the "'""ek
was that of the Ci'y of Glasgow, and that the fate of
lh« poor ioult on board. thoufh ditl**rent from that
hitherto supplied, watthe most nwtnl that can oc
cuf iff.oDjj tho mar y diwitftfi iocidcotst to

(The reporter for the Philadelphia Ledger states
that the City of Glasgow had no such figurehead
as above deaeribed; but at the figure was found on
the day after passing the wreck.it may have be

Tne Newfoundland papers contain a few details
a; to the wreck of the steamship City of Philadel

Cove, at 11 o'clock on Thursday night the 14th
Inst., it being very dark and raining heavily at the
time. She was backed off and ran in shore, where
the passengers were safely landed. Tents were
immediately pitched, and the 5-10 passengers re
main d on the spot till Saturday morning, when a
pxrt of them were conveyed to St. Johns in the
tteaner Victoria, and the remainder were convey
ed oy the same steamer on Monday. On Sunday
a detachment of military was sent to protect the
property and the wreck.
The St. John Post says, that Ihe Engineer of the
Victoria descended in a diving dress and found the
wreck lying on a solid rock, the bow projecting
clear, so that he passed under it. About eight feet
of the stem was turned, and there was a hole In the
bottom of the vessel. It is doubtful if she can pos
sibly be got afloat again.
