SURVEYING THE ISLAND.
Work to Begin at Once on the New Quarantine Site. CHANGED IEOH WAE TO TREASUEY. Story of n Ship'* Crew Compelled to Subsist For Two Weeks on Peas—A Young Bride's Mistake—Closing up Church Accounts for the Year—Other Matters. Special Correspondance Evening Journal. Nsw Cssti.k, March 14 —A survey of Reedy Island will be ordered immedi ately. a telegram having bpen received by the authorities in Philadelphia that the island has been transferred from the War Department to the Treasury Department, and that it will be placed at the disposal of the Marine Hospital service for the purpose of establishing a quarantine station, or disinfecting plant. The detailed plans have not been com pleted and the exact amount of money for the erection of a quarantine station on this island has not been determined, but there is every reason to believe that work will be begun in a very short time. The quarantine commission from Phila delphia has been very anxious that a Government station be established on Reedy Island, as it will be an additional safeguard on the Delaware and will be an assistance^to the local quarantine boards. It may do away, to a large extent, with the necessity of the Lazaretto on the Delaware jnst above Chester, a station which has'caused great uneasiness to the citizens of that city. This point in the Delaware has been long desired by Supervising Surgeon General Wyman, who wrote a strong letter to the Secretary of the Treasury recommending the securing of Reedy Island for an additional quarantine sta tion in the Delaware. This letter was peut to the Committee on Appropriations and doubtless had great effect in obtalu ing a favorable action on the appropria tions made for quarantine purpt The argumenta used by Dr. Wyman allowed the necessity for an additional station on the Delaware, that at the Delaware Breakwater being so situated that in stormy weather vessels cannot anchor with any degree of safety. Reedy Island is protected in all sorts of weather and the process of disinfection and the examination of ships aud their cargoes can be conducted with the greatest rapidity at this place. There are about fifty acres belonging to the government on this island, which is considered ample for the purpose intended. Living for Hays Only nn I'rtt. Captain Dove of the British steamship Elmvllle, which arrived here yesterday from Huelva, after a terrific passage, reports falling in with the ship Western Monarch of London, Captain Thomas, on March 9, at noon, in latitude 33.44, longitude 05 32, entirely out of pro visions aud with a famished crew, who had for upwards of two weeks been sub sisting on peas. The ship contained the mate and five seamen, whose w»u faces and attenuated forms told the story of their suffering. The Western Mouarch bad been at sea 120 days, en route from Caieta Bueno to New York, and was within ninety miles of Sandy Hook three woekB ago when u northwester was experienced which drove her to the leeward of the Bermuda Islands. For two weeks the ship had drifted at the mercy of the elements, with a crew faint wilh hunger. Captain Thomas's letter begged the master of the Elmville to give his men everything he could spare and this Captain Dove did. He supplied thorn with enough to enable the vessel to reach New York.
