AWFUL CATASTROPHE.
We-know not in what'terms to announce
the overwhelming news which reac'ed us
last- night, The fate of the steamer .San
Francisco is:at length known, and terrible
beyond expression it is. Universal anxiety
ias become dreadful certainty. The ship
founded, and two hundred and forty of the
seven hundred human beings with which she
was freighted have perished in the sea. They
did not indeed go down with the ship, but
were swept overboad frem het decks some
days before sheafoundered. Buta beneficent
Providence tempers the severest afflictions
with consolations, and so this dreadful
calamnity might, but for his mercy, have;
been infinitelv more disastrons; for all of
the hundreds on board when the-ship sank
were providentially -rescued by vessals ac
cidentally at hand. Of those who perished
some were of the most distingished and
beloved of the land. :The following are the
sad parti6ulars and the names of some of
the loet, as. they reached us last night by
telegrraph:
NEW YORK, J.AN. 13.
The ship Three Bells has arrived with
one hundred and sixty persons saved from
the steamer San Francisco, which founded
at sea on the 5th of January.
Those who have arrived include about
one hundred offiicers and soldiers and most
of the the crew of the ill-fated steamer. A
nunber of oi:her passengers were taken off
the sinking ship by the bark Kilby, bound
for Boston, and many by the ship Antarctic,
bound for Liverpool:
Most of the cabin passengers, together
with as many soldiers as it was deemed
prudent for her to take, numbering in all
about one hundred persons, are on board the
bark Kilby. She has probably gone to
Bermuda, having parted company with the
steamer during a gale on the night of the
29th December, four days before the Three
Bells left. The ship Antartic has on board
the residue of the troops, and Capt. Watkins,
of the steamer San Francisco, who ias pro
ceeded to Liverpool with them to see that
they-are properly provided for.
In the gale of the 23d December, the San
Francisco broached to twice, and was much
disabled. On the 24th all her spars and
sails were blown away. At one o'clock in
the morning of the 26th the engine stopped
in consequence of the breaking of the piston
rod, and left the vessel totally unmanageable,
the sea at the same time striking her tremen
dous blows under the guards, tearing up the
planitking fore and aft on both sides, and
causing the ship to leak badly. The troops
were then organised into bailing parties.
At nine o'clock on the 25th, a heavy sea
struck the steamer amidships, carrying away
both smoke stacks, all the upper saloon,
staving the quarter deck, and washing over.
board a large number of persons, besides
killing three of the ship's crew. On the
2Sth, the bark Kilby was spoken, and laid
by the steamer untill three o'clock itn the
afternoon of the 20th, when a number of the
passengers were transfered to the bairk,
wvhich let go her htawser at ten o'clock at
night an'd nothing htas sitnce been heard of her.
Trhe gale continued throughout the 30th,
an d .31st, a number of the men being sick, and
some in a dying condition. In the evening
of thte 1st Januarty, the Btritisht ship Three
Bells was si oken, atd baid by thie steamer
untill the 3d, whent hter boat was got along
side. On the same day the ship Antarctic
discoveredl and he ra dlown for t'te steamer,
a nd on the 4tht both shtips commenced ta
king otf the passengers, together w"ith the
niece'ssary' provisons and water, whicakh was
accomplished by six o'clock in the eveninig.
ITe next mnorninig they' took of' the officers
and erc iv, Capt. W~atkins havitng been the
last main to leauve the ship, which ha~d been
w"ith diileulty kept afloat f'or ten or twelve
dayvs.
TJhtose lost ov'erbaird are Col. John M.
Washington, M~ajor Gen. Taylor and wife,
C-:pt. II. B Field, Lieut. R. HI. Smith, three
civilians and two latdies whlose namies are tnot
r.'portt d, and somte two htundred atnd thirty
of the troops. Of the crew of the ship there
wvere eleven dleaths fromt the timie she was
disabled till the 8th instant.
Major Wyse and Lieut. WV. A. Winder
are amuongst the passengers who have arri
v'ed in New York. Col. Gates, Col. Boark,
Major Merchant, Capt. Judd antd wlfe, Lieut.
Fremont and family, Lieut. Loeser, Lieut.
Vanvart, and the ladies antd children are on
boardl the bark Kilby. Capt. Watkins, Lieut.
Chandler, and Lieut. C. S. Witnder are on
the shia Ant-arctic.
P0oRK PACKING.-ln thle West the only
*item of interest is the pork,. packing. At
Cincintnati the number slaughtered is now
equal to that of last year, while at Louis
ville the excess is 100.000. At Louisville,
Mladisoni and Cincinnati the excess at the
close of the season will be about 120,000 ;
at St. Louis, Nashville and the Lake potts,
the amount will be about the same as last
year. What the extent of country packing
is, it is, of course, impossible to say ; but
we think it wvould be safe to calculate an
- excess of the whole West of 150,000 over
last season; atnd as the hogs this year are
* from ten to twenty per cetnt, heavier thtan
last year', it will be seen that the excess, in
pouttds, will be very heavy.

FALL TRADE, FOR 1853!
C UN A NHAM
r HE UNDERSIGNED having given a further trial to the CA11 SYSTEM during the
rLpast season, have become still more convinced that it is the only.true system of doing a
GROCERY BUSINESS on terms advantageoust to both seller and buyer, being the cepest.
safest and surest, for both. While the seller is benefitted by getting the CASH PAID DOWN
for his Goods, enabling him to turu his money over many times in the year, the buyer has the
advantage of getting his Goods
Ten or Fifteen per Cent Cheaper
Than they can be obtained from those who sell on credit; they being compelled to sell at this
tiit'erence of per ceintage-to cover bad debts and pay the'additional expense of keepintg and col.
ectiing ong accounts. It only requires a little reflection, aided by a slight examination, to con
vicee those Who visit hlanburg for the purpose of purchasing SUPPLIES, that the Merchant who
deals exclusively on the Cash System in purchasing his Stock, lays-it in cheaper than those Wiho lay
in large Stocks on credit, with a view to selling them out in the same way, being enabled to turn
his capital over only once a year, must of course getlarger profits to sustain his business. than
him who on the Cash system, buys moderate Stocks, BELLS QUICK and TURNS OVE hi
capital every thirty to sixty days. The intelligent planter will perceive that the CASH SYSTE3I
Merchant will have made more money at the end of the year, by making FIVE PER CENT PROFIT.
than the credit system man will at TwENTY-FIVE, and that those who buy Goods had better lor
row the money at home, and allow even fifteen or twenty per cent interest, and pay CASH for
his supplies, than to purchase on time even from the best CREDIT HOUSES.
The Undersigned having made ample arrangements to keep on hand a LARGER STOCK,
and much better assortment of
ALL KINDS OF GROCERIES
Than they did the pasf season, only ask of their friends and-others visiting this market, to give
them a call, where they will find, in addition to FINE FAMILY GROCERIES, a large
supply of nearly all the staple Goods usually used in the country, sneh as
Saddlery, Hats, Shoes, Calicoes, Shirtings, Sheetings, Blaikets,
FLANNELS, &c., &c.
Being thankful for the liberal patronnge of the past season, and looking forward to 2 largely
increased trade the coming Fall. we have laid in and are now receiving our Stock, and t ike plea.
ure in calling the attention of customers.to our superior
Teas, Sugars, Coffee, Cheese, Molasses, Flour, Bacon,

Those who prefer paying Cash for their Goods, and thereby save Fifteen Dollars in every Hiun

all articles sold, will be put up in the best manner, and warranted to turn out. what they are rep
