PERILS OF THE SEA.
Dreadful Sufferings of a Schooner's Crew. RESCUED IN THE NICK OK TIME. Cowardice of the Captain of a Life- Saving Station—A Curious Co incidence of Death. lAssoe-lated Press Dispatches to the Hkbald.l New York, February 0. —The schooner James E. Kelsey, Captain J. Wheatton, Jr., arrived in this port from Wilming ton, N. C, having on board the second mate, John Christman, and two seamen, the sole survivors of the crew of the schooner Allie R. Chester, hailing from New York, which had become disabled during a gale encountered on a trip from Charleston to Barron Island with phos phates, and struck on the outer edge of the Diamond Reef, fifteen miles south east of Cape Hatteras, January 20th. Captain Ingersoll of the Chester, First to ate Weels, the cook and two seamen were drowned. The survivors were forty seven hours lashed to a stump of the mizzen mast before they were discovered by Captain Wheatton of the schooner Kelsey. Their rescue was accomplished with great difficulty. Twenty-four hours before they were res cued they sighted a life-boat putting out from shore toward them, but it returned without coming near. Captain Daly, of the life-saving station, claims that he put out toward the wreck, but, seeing no signs of life on board, returned, not car ing to risk his beat and crew for nothing. Daly has since resigned, however. A coincidence in connection with this story is the fact that it was discovered to-day that at the very time when Captain In gersoll was spending his last moments lashed to the rigging of his vessel, his wife was dying of consumption at Wood munkville, N. J. HILF'DUOWNKD AND FMOZKN. The Terrible Experience of Two 1 Deserting Sailors. New York, February 6.—The Fall River steamer, Old Colony, to-day brought in a sailor named Leander Kal- ' doon_. badly frozen, and the corpse of ' anotber man, whom Kaldoon knew only as "Bill." Kaldoon says he sailed from I New York on the morning of the 4th on the schooner J. F. Kearnes, Captain McDonald, for South Africa. Before sailing, and after the voyage began, the \ crew were treated most atrociously by j the captain and mate, and resolved to make a raft from some planking and logs on deck and desert at night. Finding they could not make a raft large enough 1 to hold all four of the sailors they drew ' lots to see which two should escape. £ Kaldoon and "Bill" won the prize and launched the raft at 11 o'clock last night. They expected to make shore, but the wind shifted and carried them out in the middle of the Sound. A heavy sleet storm prevailed, and they were washed overboard. At 8:30 o'clock this morn- ! ing the Old Colony picked them up. j Restoratives were used, and the half- ; frozen men were rolled in hot blankets and rubbed. "Bill" was beyond human . aid. He gasped a few times and then ' died. Kaldoon is getting along well. Captain Hammond says the men wore , encased in ice when rescued, and he had no idea of saving the lives of either of them. .nI KDF.It AND .nIIICIDE. A Terrible Scene Made t»r a Lover at tne Jlorsue. Chicago, February 6. —This morning at the Hotel Cortland a man named W. S. Bradley shot and killed his wife, then suicided. Both parties are well con nected. Bradley was a nephew of W. H. Bradley, clerk of the Federal Court. Mrs. I.rail ley's maiden name was Wat kins, and, it'is said, is related to Hon. Henry Watterson. Both were employed as renorters nn a mornins; paper. Mrs. Bradley is given an excellent reputation, but her husband was a black sheep. He got out of the penitentiary a few months ago, where he served a sentence for embezzlement. Ever since he has been insanely jealous, particularly of Frederick Mann, of H. V. Mann & Co., linen drapers, who, while Bradley was in the penitentiary, was in the habit of escorting her when fulfilling night assignments. He was evidently very much in love with her, for when the news of her death became known he went to the morgue and made a scene, repeatedly kissing *he cold and bloody lips of the dead woman, and heaping imprecations on the head of her dead husband.

I Associated Press Dlsoatches to the Herald. I Chicago, February G.—Alexander Sul livan, ex-President of the Irish National League of America, speaking to-day in regard of the statements made about him by Dr. Le Caron before the Parnell Commission in London yesterday, said he knew Le Caron very slightly. The latter had represented himself to Sul livan as a Frenchman with an Irish wife and most ardent Irish sympathies. He claimed to have served in the Union army and afterwards in the Fenian organization. Mr. Sullivan believed there was not a particle of foundation for Le Coron's statements about Parnell's expressions of sympathy with any method, except open public agita tion, to aid Ireland. The whole story was another desperate effort to give some color or excuse for continu ing the case against Parnell. The Even ing News declares Le Caron served in the Union Army during the war, and in timates that both then and during his connection with the Fenians he acted as a spy for the British Government. He had an office in this city on La Salle avenue, bus left for Europe" about Christ mas. PIOUS AN O PATBIOTIC. The Bereaved Sovereign's Procla mation to His People.

It has been a consolation to me, during • these days of bitter woe, to know that I ■ was upheld by the heartfelt sympathy of my people, of which I have received from all sides the most touching to kens." The proclamation further expresses the heartfelt thanks of the Kmperor and Empress aud their sorely stricken daugh ter-in-law for the sympathy accorded them, and concludes by asking God's help in the future, and the co-operation of the Austrian subjects with their ruler, to secure the welfare of the fatherland. In Collision and Sunk. London, February (i.—The British bark Largo Bay, bound for Auckland, was towed to Spithead to-day in a sinking condition.

The steamer sunk eight minutes after the collision occurred. John Bull Disgusted. London, February 6. —The Daily News, commenting on the Samoan situation, says: "Prince Bismarck has disregarded his obligations to Great Britain in a most flagrant way, and Count Herbert Bis marck's ostentatious friendliness for America is inadequate to re compense us for our Austral ian colonies. A policy of subservience to Germany which procures us no ap preciable advantages is neither a triumph of diplomatic skill nor a solace to National pride." Rudolph's Request to the Pope. Berlin, February 6—A dispatch to the Frankfurt Zeitung from Rome says : In January Rudolph addressed himself directly to the Pope, without his father's knowledge, to ask his assistance in ob taining a divorce and authority to marry again. The Pope sent the letter to the Emperor, and the result was a serious explanation between father and son, which probably unhinged the latter. Pendleton Weak, But Working. Berlin, February (j.—The report that Judge Lambert Tree, United States Min ister to Russia, is acting as the repre sentative of Minister Pendleton, is with out foundation.
