It is our painful task to have to record one of

Th American ship Governor Fenner, Captain
Aodrews, which wiled hence on Friday, at noon,
for New York, came in contact on the following
morning, at 9 o'clock, off llollyhead, witb the
Nottingham tteamer, from Dublin, for this port.
The abip struck the eteamer midshipB. 8o great
waa the force of lb collision, the ahip's Imwi
were stove in, and, in a lew minutes from the time
of the vessels coming in contact, she tank, the
captain and th mute .being the only persons, out
of one hundred and twenty four soul on board,
who saved their live. The Nottingham wa dread
fully afiattered, but having been struck in her
trongeat part, the collision, wa not fetal to her.
From Captain Andrew, whom we saw on his
landing from the Nottingham, yesterday forenoon,
we received a verbal account of the dinar. er. It
was iu eubstance aa follow j
1 We sailed frnm Liverpool oo Friday lat, at
noon, the wind tiSW. Tlie crew consi d of 18
and th pacngera in the steerage of 106. We
bad a full cargo of manufactured I eod. On Sat
urday rooming at two o'clock, the wind blowing
fresh from toe 8SW, and when the wind wa un
der double-reefed topsails, the lib, spanker, and
inuinstul in, saw a steamer to the windward on th
larboard bow. The ship's helm wa instantly put
bard a port. Tbe steamer crossed our bow, and
we etruck her ngb amidships. From the force
of tbe collision, it wa evident that either tbe ship
or the steamer would eink. or perhaps both t in
Untly 1 felt that the ship, the bows of wbicb were
etov in, was sinking, Iried oat to the crew (all
the passengers were below) to endeavor to save
their live. Tbey, iturtead of running forward
through fear ran aft. My first object waa to en
deavor to aav tbe crew and passengers, but so ra
pid wa lb sinking of the ehtp, 1 found it impo
ble to do anything to accoropliah that object.
and the mat then ran forward, and finding the
ship fast sinking, I tried to jump oo the steamer.
; railing in tbe first attempt, through a momentary
famines, I made a second, and jut as tbe sh
wa at the water'a edge, succeeded in g rawing
rope wbicb waa hanging over-the at earner 'a aide.
Tbe mate saved his life by jumping from the fore
yard arm oo the steamer' deck. 1 1 one minute
the ship sank, with aixteen of her crew and her
passengers, amounting to 123 souls. The steam
er's boat wss instantly lowered for tbe purpose of
making an attempt to save such of the crew and
passengers as might be floating, but it unfortunately
swamped alongside."' u
We afterwards beard the account of 'he catas
trophe given by the persona w ho were on the deck
of the Nottingham wben the collUiou occurred.
It ia, in substance, aa follow :
" About a quarter part two o'clock-on Saturday
morning, when about 15 miles to the westward of
Holyhead, the weather calm, but rather thick, one
-fef ing rown of the watcft
upon tne mmngnaui. que naa PO Hgnt at tier
- mast, while lhet earner had three lights. He re
ported tho fact to tbe second mate, who was then
at the wheel. The second mate hailed the ship
and waa answered. He desired her to starboard
the helm. This, they thought, was not done.
voic from Ihe ship, which wss supposed to have
' boon that of tha captain, requested the steamer to
larboard ber helm, as be. could not bring tbe ship
over, sne not answering ucr iiciio. ai una uisiam,
the Governor Fenner at ruck the Nottingham amid
hip. In less than, fire minutes the ship filled
with water, and disappeared. Ine steamer became
quite motionless after the shock, and the people on
board of bei were unable to make the least attempt
to Buccor those oo board the ship, wbicb euck bwr
foremost. The scream ot the peopl oo tne
wrack were heart rending, but they soon ceased,
and all wa still. Tne steamer' atarboard sid
' waa completely stove in, the paddle shall and wheel
were ahivered in piece, the (larboard engine waa
broken, and the funnel carried away. 17 cow
warn killed, 7 more and 73 sheep were thrown
overboard, and 11 died before lb veeael reached
port. On Saturday evening the wreck of tbe
Nottingham wa fallen in with by another steamer,
ami towed mto the Mersey.
H The opinion on board Ihe Nottingham waa,
that the Governor Fanner's helm, instead of being
put to starboard, a it enght lo have been, must
hava been to port j for if it had been put to star
board, tbe ship would have cleared the steamer,"
Tho passengers wore below in their berths when
the collision between the ship and the (learner took
