An officer of tho company said ho could not imagine how tho accident occurred, but thought it probable that it happened during a fog or gale. Ho said tho steamer generally carried very few cabin pas sengers. being chiefly engaged in tho steerage passenger aud freight trade. He had uo idea of tho number of pas sengers or crow. The amouut of cargo board would probably roach 2,000 tons, 400 tons uf which was for Halifax. He considered Captain Hchoouhoveu a very careful aud painstaking man.

"The committee have no hesitation in v iug that this is one of the moBt meritor I of the claims presented to them, and therefore reoommend the passage ol the bill." The Secretary of the Treasury reports the following as the oost ot the preßeut building in Wilmington : Cost of site, $3 500 ; construction of bulldiog, $39,569.34 ; total oost, $43,069 34.

The chief of engineers ha* made the fol lowing report on the Improvement of the Brandywine river from its mouth Market street bridge, in Wilmington, whioh is intends! for the gnidanoe of the committee making appropriations : "The headwaters of the Brandywine found iu the Welsh mountains, Chester oountv, Pennsylvania, abont 40 miles from Wilmington, and are known the east and ite at Chadd's Ford, 13 miles from Wilmington. The stream is valuable ouly for water power from near its source until tide water is encountered. The portion subject to tidal influence has been in cluded in tbe snrvt-y, aud for three and a half miles is within the boundaries of Wilmington. "Less than 2 feet of water cov«ra the bar at the mouth of tue river at low water, and this of oonree, dotermintB tho fact that ouly light draught vessels o enter.

The total length of cutting would be a up and a half miles, half of the aid named be given, the improvement would only oost $50,000. Much more freight would be carried by waLr if larger vessels oould navigate the stream.
