On lowering the port boat the Captain ex
claimed, "hoist up that boat again, Mr Balham,"
and beckoned me to go to him. Upon doing
so he ordered me to go over the steamer to as
certain if possible, what damage had been done.
I then found the holes above mentioned. Upon
informing him of the facts he gave orders to
get the sails up, and to try and get them around
the bow to endeavor to stop the leak, which was
promptly done, but was of no advantage what
ever, so much of the bow broken off from 'th'tf
other steamer projecting, that the sails could
not be brought close to the vessel's side. The
carpenter was then lowered over the vessel's side,
aud pillows and mattresses passed down to him
to try and force them in, but the leak was found
to be so far below the water-line that they could
not be got in.
Every exertion to stop the leak proved un
availing, Captain Luce then ordered that the
ship's head be kept for land, which bore X. W.
by V. By this time we had lost sight of the'
chief officers' boat and the other steamer, which
we supposed to have sunk. :
We had not been on our course more than
five minutes "before 'we ran overa boat and crew
belonging to the other vessel, all of whom
perished, with the exception of one who caught
hold of a rope hanging over the bow. Directly
the boat was seen, orders were given to stop
the engine, which the chief engineer said could
not be done, as the ship was fast sinking.
In about 30 minutes all the lower lircs were
out, and three feet water in the ship fore aud
aft. By this time the confusion among the
passengers was very great, but they used all
efforts to assist the crew in kerpiug the deck
pumps going, and in lighting the ship for the
purpose of endeavoring to get at the leak from
the inside. It was, however, found to be use
less, and numbers of them were going into the
boats, which were still hanging to the davits.
Forty-five minutes after the collision I came
up from the forehold and informed the captain
that the water was on a level with the lower
deck beams, and tha : it was impossible to get
at the leak. I then asked him what lie thought
would be the fate of the ship, when he stated
his belief that there was no hopes of a?ing her.
lie then told me to see to my boats.
On going to the boats on the port side I
found them coniDlctcly filled with men, women
and children, and no possibility of getting near
them. I immediately went to-the starboard
side and ordered two of the crew to lower the
guard boat, and asked the Captain. .-what were
his intentions. He said that the- hiprs fate
should be his. I then asked him it he would
not allow his son to go. He returned me an
swer that he should share his fate.
It was discovered that there was no hope of
saving the Arctic, juid the lady, daughter and
son of E. K. Collins, with several ladies, were
put on board a boat, and in the ac t of lowering
it, one of the tackles gave way, and all, except
one lady, who clung to a sailor who held fast
to the boat, were precipitated into the sea
and lost. . . : -
1 then jumped into a boat, and was ordered
by Capt. Luce to cut the tackle falls, and drop
under the stem. I did so, at the same time
about 20 persons jumped overboard, of whom
17 or 18 were picked up. We fell in with
another boat which had been lowered from the
other side, and lightened her of a part of he r
complement, leaving 10 in her, and 20 in my boat.
The last sight 1 had of the ship, her guards
were level with the . water, and the surface of
the sea was strewn with human beings who had
jumped overboard, to whom it was impossible
to render any assistance, and we soon lost sight
of all, as the fog continued very dense.
"We were about fiO miles S. E. of Cape Race,
and deeming it my duty to take the nearest
course for the safety of all, after pulling forty
hours, with nothing to guide us but the run of
the sea, which I took to be heaving from the
southward, and in a thick fog, which lasted all
the time, we reached Broad Cove, 12 miles north
of Cape Race, and then proceeded by land to
Renems, which we reached on Friday last.
We there obtained, and I took charge of a
small schooner, which was hired,xtnd proceeded
immediately in search of the wreck or boats.
I cruised around in a strong gale of wind from
northeast, but discovered no trace of the ship
I sent word to Capt. Leitch, of the City of
the City of Philadelphia steamer, acquainted
him with the castastrophe, and I am informed
he sent off two vessels which he had eugaged
about his own ship. r
No trace of the Arctic or boats could be found,
but as- there were may vessels in the neighbor
hood where the disaster occurred, it is not at
all improbable that many lives may have been
saved. No doubt, however, is left in my mind
as to the total loss of the Arctic.

The Steamship Arctic, rith 226 passengers,

On Wednesday, Sept. 27, precisely at 1
o'clock M., in a den.c fag, we came in contact
with a bark-rigged iron propeller, with 1-I.h ;:

shock appeared to us slight, but the darnntrc t-
the othtr vessel was frightful. Captain Lu

At this juncture it was first ascertains-'!

came alongside to report, the captain wv.s un -ble
to take him up, but headed N. N. V. in
hoje of making land. Our position on the pre

longitude 45 27. We had run about 1 1 . r
hundred and ten miles from the time of i !. is

The pumps were vigorously worked, an
anchor chain thrown overboard; but in .-pi!
all exertion, the engines stopped, and th" v

gers were working at the pumps .sonic Hi in
the signal guns, and others launching s-p:ir.-,
under the direction of Captain Luce and .Mr
Dorian, the third mate, to form a raft.
In order to facilitate this latter work the?
sixth and last boat was lowered. Dorian, oik;
or two fircrnerr,- three of the other passengers
saved, and myself, were busily engaged lashing
water casks and settees to the main yard, tvo
topgallant yards, and several smaller spars -the
Captain with a number of gentlemen, pro

when a panic seized all on board, a rn-h ;

selves headlong oyer the bulwarks on to th'
raft, and in a moment our little boat was full,
and in emtninent clanger of being sunk.
In this emergency, Dorian ordered the vojm

with our hands and axes we paddled from the

I heard one wild yell, (still ringing in my
ears,) ami saw the Arctic and the struggling
'mass rapidly engulphcd. Numbers yet clung
to the imperfectly constructed raft ; but, al.i.-,
we could render tlMm no aid. Our own situa
tion was no less precarious; and, cruel as it
seemed, we were .forced to nliandon them to
fate, ileaven forbid that I should ever wit -uess
such another scene. We however piched
up two more men, and then, with an overload
ed boat, without oars, tholepins, food or drink,
avoiding with .difficulty the fragments of the
wreck, and passing many dead females, prcj ar
ed for a night upon the ocean. We secured a

of our boat to keep her head to the wind and

was eold and foggy, with a heavy swell, and in
a cramped, drenched and half naked condition,
we suffered terribly.
Without dwelling upon our miseries, allevia

deavored '.to do our duty to our fellow men.
suffice 'it to say that at five o'clock on the after
noon of : the 28th, we espied a sail, and rai-cd
a handkerchief to attract attention. We wen
successful. With the rude substitute for oars

lashing planks to capstan bars, with a view of
attempting to gain land when the sea subside d,
we pulled towards the ship. On our way v.
passed the remnant of the raft, with one man
on it apparently alive.

He states that after the steamship sunk, h,
counted seventy-two men and four women ou
the raft, but at 8 o'clock he was the only Y.n"
alive. In the morning two bodies were be-id
him, much eaten by fishes, and at the time he
saw our boat he was on the point of voluntarily
dropping into the sea to end his agony, d su

of the 23th, Capt. Wall hung out c.rti l
lights, fired rockets, and kept a horn blowing,
in' hope of falling in with the remainder of the
boats. Bat his endeavors were fruitless. On
