Panic on a Steamer. New Yoik, March 30.?Talea of a! panic in mid-ocean among tho 1,660 Italian steerage passengers of tbe White Star Hoer Oreti., were told by tbe cabin passengers when the ship docked in New York, today. Frenzied by the aop pcsed jocular cry of "flre," raised by some of their couotrymen, who poured from the steerage companionway, the Italians fooght over one another lo reach tbe life boats. Before tbe officers of the ship could interfere thelmmigrants with dtawn knivea stood by tbe boats shouting defiance to the officers who ordered them back to the s'eerage quar? ters. When the Italians learned there was no fire, they quieted down and re? turned to their own quarters.
