This is the great disaster of the half
century ; not since th Bri.ish frigates. St
Lreorge aud IJcteucc were wrecked off the
coast of Jutland, in 1811, has atiy such
frightful loss of life beeu added to the sor
row pf the sea. In that wreck 2,000 men
were drowned. '1 he sinking of the Royal
George off Spithead, in 1372, whenAdui:r
al Kempemleldt went down with his COO
men, was long celebrated in sore: and
story as the great catstrophe by sea for
many generations. . 1 he I wrecking of thc
liayiil Charter, on the Aiiglesea coast, in
lb59, when 446 lives and much treasure
ffirtj lost, sent a thrill of ! horror through
out the civilized world. That same year.

Pacific, Which disappeared in lboG, there
were 1S6 people ; and on the City of Glas

ore 480. Of the Arcaicy we, in America,
havq still sorrowful recollections ; 300 men
women and children were lost, on that ship,

On the Same dread line of coast the Hun

in I860. The sinking of the Northllevt,
in the English channel last January, was
the latest great sea disaster until that
which we now record. Bv the wreck t

ECONOMY AS AX EXCUSlI FOU MtTKDEK
One of the principal caii3es for. the loss
of the ship may be set down to the lack
of coal to reach this port II is a well
known fact that the price of coal in Eng
land is very high, aud that the trauslan
tic lnes buy largely on ibis side, and en
deavor to take over somuthiug of a sup
ply to bring them back to this side. It
is also true that much of the coal furnish
ed at thc present time on the ollu r side is
of a; very poor quality, and will not make
8 team as ireely as the v ejsh coals usually
J furnished to t he first-class steam lines.
Another cause for the disaster ia that the
vessel was considerably out of her true
course, either for Halifax or New York,
and the Captain evidently! had been run
ning well north to shorten up his longi
tude. The practice has long been dis
countenanced by the principal lines, and
n some instances the captain positively
forbidden to take the. high latitude route
which the Atlantic evidently had taken.
j THE BEAN TRADE.
From Dr. Patrick, a prominent Rich
mond merchant, well known in We-tern,
N. we have received the following,
which contains interesting aud profitable
information to the farmeis in thia section :
"We liave handed this season. 500 or
600busiels of Beans grown in your sec
Hon, and would like yqu to give your
people the benefit of our expeiience,
whu-h i this : rarmers should grow for
market, nhj While, lied and Black Leans
rinfse lhre varieties will always tell
readilv, it iican It but a small task tor
each farmer to pick out the faulty Bans.
Alter they pase into the hands of the
Merchants ibis can not be donn in the
bulk. Our advice to Merchantg is, never
buy Mixed B.-aus. In the select ion of
White Beans pet the roundest and whitest
"nft-rior articles will not pay trausj or
taiion. : Pure Black B an? command a
good price, so do pure Red Beaus1.
the ; planting season Is at hand and
farmers will profit by following these sug

AN EN JIN E OF DEATH.
One Thousand Shots a Minute from a
Pen nessee Milrailleur.
From the N. Y. Times of the 20th ult.
Yesterday, at Holskiu's machine shop,
corner of Cherry and Jt fTersou streets, a

features, which distinguished il from the
Gatlin or Imperial luilradlcurs. One lm
portaut one is that the gun barrels are in
a water casing, so thai the heating ot
the bain Is is impossible, 1 he other is
that the 24 barrels, starting at the breecb

iu an ellipse. By this means a lateral or
h- r oi zonial range is given inste id of on i i
which other runs of a similar character
throw the prijc tiles, up aud down, at
riphl aujflt-s with the trrouud. The de
vice for loading ia exceedingly novel. It
is self-charging, something like the Henry
itie. Metallic cartridge are placed in
hollow tubes, which arc fed up to the
chambt ra by tho motion' of a lever. A
most ingenijus device is used for firing,
and ou moving the crank aud : jiifiiug a
simple mechanism, the luilraillcur may

cartridges. In the fusillade filing as ex

rounds a minute ; w-Immi fired in a volley
about 1,000. The calibre f cartridge used
