Particulars of the Sickening Disaster.
The steamship Atlantic was run upon
the rocks, some ten days ago, while
steering for the port of lal ifax. Several
hundred immigrants were on board and
a nulmber of callin passengers. Several
wvomenl and children were among the
number. Particulars of the disaster are
furnished in the following recitals.
The followiing is the statement of
Captain Williams:
WVe started from Liverpool 3March 20.
During the first part of the passage had
fatvorable weather and easterly winds.
OM the twenty-fourth, twenty-fifth and
twenty-sixth experienced leavy south
west and west gales, which brought
the ship down to 118 miles a dtay. On
the thirty-first of March the engineer's
report showed about 127 tons of coal on
We were then -1610 miles east of Sui, dy
Hook, with thel wind southwest, and
high west swell and falling barometer,
and tilt ship steaming oily eiighlt knots
lter hour; considered the risk too great
to 1push on, as we amight find ourselves,
in event of a gale, shut out frolm any
port of suplply-, and so decided to bear
up for Halitfax. At 1 P1. 3M., on the
thirty-first, Sambro island waIs distant
170 miles, tile ship's speed -varying from
ten to twelve knots per hour; wind
south, with rain, which veered to west
at 8 I'. 31., with clear weather; at Illid
night 1 juldged tile ship to have llmade
122 liles, which would place her forty
eight miles south of Samlbro; I then
left the deck anld wvent ill the chart
roomlll leaving ordelrs about look out and
let e1110 know if they saw anyilhlllillg and
call u111e at 3 A. 31., inltending then to
pitt tile ship's Ileadl to the south andltl
await daylight. My first intinmation of
tl1e catastrophel was the stliking of tilt,
shipl on 3hn'r island anld remaining
thlere fast.
The saca ilulllndi:lt.ly swep,t away all
the port boats. The ofliv.ers wenlt to
their staitions and11 coililnced lc(:tillg
w\\'ay the wea\\theIlr boatts. RIockets were
firedtl by the second otlil'ir. I1efore thley
couldl bce cleared,( only tell minutes',
lhaving elapsed, tile shilp keheled heavy
to port, rellllerinlg the Atarbt)ar.d 111 uts
us-eless. Seeing that no 11el11 could be
golt frolll tll boats, I got tie passegersll
intol the rigging nild outlsie rails, and
encouratlged thnll to go forward wvlhere
the ship was highest and Ie-s exposed
to watter.
The third ofllcer, Mr. Brady, :iuar

The second olicer was lost with No. :10
The wreck remaiiled in the samen po
sition as before reported, the bow and
1 masts only above water, and the sea
a breaking so rough that the boats could
not approach with safety. She was
broken at some places anlti : ftew pack
ages had washed out and drifted to sea,
but the bulk of the cargo iapplearedl to

J. W. Firtllh, chief, in reply to the
reporters, made a statement in sub
f stance, as follows:
iMy watch tended at twel tveo'clock on

them along in fine style. The top
rigg~l yacht flying the blue pennant
was well ahead at the stake, and came
home ahead of all the fleet. The
Speaker then took the floor and an
noltuneed his intention to ask that the
Sresolutions of censure that had been
heI lcapel upon Annanias should be re
Ssciltted, and proceeded to read the
recorlxds in the case, from which it ap
pearted that Annanias had sold his
house anlid had not given all the price
to the church. 'lThe Slpeaker thoen went
on to say that no reason appeared on
the record for Annanitas to give any,
tlnd much lesst ll Ills property to the
chturch, ntd that Ihe questioned it any
of those before hint would do any more
thnll Anannlas had in the same place.
I ec thou Venllt on to show that Annanias
had obteyed his wifeo in tihe matter, and
t'xpressced tile belief that few of those
betore hint could say as much for them
selves. After further arguments of a
similar character, hIe moved that the
characnter of Annanits be and is hereby
