Disasters at Sea.
The recoiit appalling calamity at
sl-.i, the Ion of the steamship Atlan
tic oil" Cape Po-;poct, Nova Scotia,
'ft .id tlio drowning of between live and
six hundred persons passengers,
o.iiejrs, and crew, has sent a shock
t ii-oag:iout the civilized globe as
s.viit as the electric Hash could carry
t!i ; ilroa.lful word so harrowing to
tiie kin ait l kith of the dead, and so
awful f jr all to contemplate. It is
s.hhu relief to learn that the latest
.ispatehe! Estimate the number of
the victims to b below six hundred,
an 1 not above seven hundred, as at
But even at the low-
CiL reported estimate, the terrible
event takes rank above all other sim
ilar disasters of the present century,
wit'.i a single exception, and is ex
ceeded by only one other in the an
nals of the preceding hundred years.
I'rom a recognized authority on ship
wrecks and disasters at sea we extract
ail give below brief reports of the
m.)st conspicuous in regard to the
loss of life alone, the lirst that is
mentioned bv this authoritv is the
Ijss of the ship UIanche"Nef, Novem
ber 25, 112 ), oil' lirtrileur on the coast
of Xorniady. There were on board
Ik3 souls, all of whom perished.
An ng them were the children of
Henry I, King of England. From
that date down to the middle of the
last century the record is a blank.
Since that period to 1S03 at which
the record closes among the dis
asters reported no these, viz:
April 13, 1758 The British war
ship Prince George, lost on the voy
age to Gibralter; loss of liff, 400.

lesea, and 410 lives perished.
April 27, 1803. The Steamship
Anglo Saxon was lost on the Banks
of Newfoundland, and of 4-17 on per
ished. The record from which we extract
closes - with the wreck last given
above. The list of disasters is con
tinued for two or three years later,
but in it are no cases where the loss
of life was so high as 200 by any
one wreck, and we have omited from
the catalogue any disaster in which
the loss fell much below 250. It is
only the extraordinory losses we
have essayed to present. But besides
the disasters mentioned we can call
to mind several that do not appear
In the record, for instance: The
burning of the steamer Lexington on
Long Island Sonnd ; the loss of the
steamer Atlantic in the same waters;
the foundering at sea, a few days out
of New York, bound for Aspinwall,
with soldiers and passengers, of the
new steamship San Francisco; and
the burning at sea, only a few years
back, of a Bremen steamship crowd
ed with passengers; in each case the
loss of life having lieen very large.
Contrasted with other coasts and all
things considered the loss of life has
been very much smaller on this
coast during the last twenty years
than anywiiere else on the globe,
and this remark is singularly appli
cable to the coast and coasting ves
sels of Oregon. And there is hardly
a Bar in the world where fewer dis
asters occur than at the Bar entrance

Camp Meeting Talk.
A chan down South went to a camp
meeting and gives the following
amusing account of the disjointed
conversation he heard there:
Preaching had not begun, and
promenading was in progress. We
took a conveient stand, and endeavor

couides, as they passed slowly by us
