The wind shifted to the east? ward and at 12 o'clock had inareusod to a gale from east southeast. The sea was terrible, running with tre mondous foroo und making a clean bieach over tho sturdy tug, doodiu? her oabiu.fi, and Jthe air was filled with blinding snow, so that it was impossible to see tho length of the craft. Capt. Olmetead aud Pilot Wm, Dodd wero at the wheel of tho Sea King. They headed the tug oil' shore and she pulled away at the long tow behind bur until '1 o'clock, ihe sturm was as fierce thou us over. It was then seen that the tow had been bro? ken apart aud that the barges were going adrift and several were seen to founder. The head barge of tho tow foundered about t> o'olook this morniug aud tho immense haw? ser that held her was cut. The tug lay by iu the vicinity until '2::i0 to rescue any of tho people aboard tho barges. One man aud ft boy were taken from the bargu Nellie before she went down, but to savo auother lifo was impossible as the tug could not KOt alongside the barge nor dared she turn from heading into tho sou. ??She did liually turn and took ofl'the crew of the Nellie. There wero twelvo lives lost in tho dis aster, four women and eight men, Ah soon as tho Sea King took ofl'the Nellie's crow and it was apparent that no other lives could bo saved the tug ran for this harbor to escape the tremendous fury of the storm.
