GREAT DISASTER Fonr Hundred Prisons Perished by the Wreck of the Salier, Which Went on the Corrobodo Hocks, Off the Coast of Spain, En Rente From Bremen to Bt e liu* Ay res—Mostly Steerage Passengers. LONDON, Dec. 13 A special dispatch front i.'.'.im, says tln.l ihe North C»tr» man L.oyd steamer Salier, wa wrecked on the night of Dec. 7, four nines north of Vil.ugareia, Spain, and 214. nii.es from land. The dispatch further says that she must have broken up almost immediately, .s parts of the steamer have already washed ashore. She ha.l on board '^10 passengers, mostly steerage, and a crew of tt5 men. All on board were drowned. The Corrobodo rocks, on which it is believed the Salter was lost, are situ ate" oil the southwest coast of Cor cnna. and should have been given a v:de berth before the steamer headed last ward and then in a northeasterly direction for the bay leading up to lllagerisa. CORUKNA, Spain, Dec. 12.—The Sai ler, which was lost off this coast Dec. 7, was commanded by Captain Wempe. The steamer had a general cargo. The disaster occurred during a dense fog and very heavy weather. The Salier had a fearful passage from Bremen to Highest of all in Leavening Strength.—Latest U. S.

Two of her boats were swept overboard by the heavy seas which beat over her, and she sustained other damages from the same cause. It is believed that about 400 persons per ished. The steamer struck during the night of Monday last on a ledge of rocks about two and a half ntiles off Cape Carrubedo. on her way from this place to Villagarcia, bound for Buenos Ayres. A large amount of wreckage is reported to have washed ashore. The search made for possible survivors of the wreck has so far been without result, and but little hope is entertained of rescuing any of of the passengers or crew. The Salier was an old vessel, which the North Lloyd company had agreed to sell to an Italian firm, trading between Italian and American ports. Imt owing to some slight disagreement as to the terms, the deal was not conipletod and the steamer was sent on r. not her voy age. She was consideied to be in every wny seaworthy. and the only reason the North l-erni.n Lloyd com pany had for selling the Salier, was that there were more modern boats of the same line in miciiness to take her place. Her last trip across the Atlantic Was n.ude in iast September, when she left Baltimore for Bremen, arriving there sately on Sept. The Salier was of 3,000 tons gross register, wa« S51 feet long, brig-rigged, and had a wngle propeaer. Of the steerage passengers, there were over 100 Russians, about 25 Gali cians, some Germans and about 'i00 Spaniards, according to the estimates, all on their way to the Argentine Re public, looking for ndw homes for them selves and families. If the disaster had occurred after the Salier touched at Villagarcia, the loss of life would have been much greater, as it is understood there were nearly 100 more passengers, men, women and children, awaiting at that port to embark on board the Salier for Buenos Ay res.

Attorney General McOormick may bring suit against the reorganized Heading raii road to determine whether it is a bona tide corporation. The Reading com pany claims to act under a charter grauted by special act of the assembly in lbTl, with large and unlimited pow ers. By the constitution, which be came operative Jan. 1. 1S74, all private harters under which lona lide organ izations had not been effected and busi ness commenced at that tiui^, were de clared void. The attorney general has been led to believe that the charter of flte Reading company fell under that provision ot the constitution ami that possibly an attempt was being made to avoid an other provision forbidding joint owner ship or control of mining corporation* and railroad corporations.
