from his partner. Hit. Sutton, in San
Francisco, concerning the wreck of
the Ut Mary u few days ago at Fort
Stanlfily on the Falkland Islands. He
says tho cargo is being saved, but the
vessel is a total loss. The SL Mary
sailed from New York the 27th or
May for San Francisco. It was her
first voyage, she having been com
pleted only last spring. Her value
was 8100.000, and she was fully in
sured. Off Fort Stanley she encoun
tered the British ship Eton Hall,
which ran into her, striking the St.
Mary amidship. The injured vessel
was beached, and taking off freight
was at onco begun. No lives were
lost Tho cargo was valued at about
8225,000, aud the Jarger part of it bo
longed to Portland merchants. Con
sidering the fact that the ship was
new and staunch, her wreck is more to
be rogrolted. Sho was full rigged and

THBILLING EZPESIEN0E AT SEA.
Oapt Thompson Relates the Occurrence
A Lis1, of the Elled
Special by Tho UxmD Peia
Boston, Sept. 19. The ship Chal
lenger, of Bath, before reported, put
in here in distress to-day. She has
nothing but her fore aud main lower
masts, with her fore and main yards
Thompson reports that he exper
ienced adverse win-Is nearly the whole
time after leaving West Hartlepool,
until the hurricane of August 31st,
during which eight men wero lo.t
overboard and four injured.
During the threatening weather just
preceding the hurricane they short
ened most of the sails, and when the
wind struck the ship all hands were
aloft hauling in the others. The jibs
filled and carried away tho jibboom,'
the topmast and the top gallant mast.
The men were either thrown into the
sea or landed on portions of tho
wreckage, only a few falling to the
deck injured. Thomas McKenn had
his loft leg broken; Thomas Qiiinn two
ribs fractured; Seamau Raymon his
left leg broken; Seaman Bunk was
hauled in from the sea badly bruised."
Tho following wero cast overboard
and lest: George Buhu, ot Copen
hagen; TlwmaH Gaul, of Austria; Con
Torresburg, or Sweden; O. Olsen, of
Sweden; C. U. Ludwig, of Germany;
Charles Fleming, of Ilichmo'iJ, Ya.;
O. Oleen, of Norway, and a seaman
named Wiuworn, of Germany.
At 2 1. m. the wiud bk-vv 100 miles
an hour, aud tho furled sails were
blown out of the gaskets, aud by 5 r
if. tho mizzen mast was gone. Every
thing ou deck was smashed or carried
away, and tho ship was left iu tho con
dition reported above at the mercy
of tho waves.
The ship labored in a rough sea till
the wind moderated at 9 v. il, when
such of tho men as were uninjured set
about putting tho ship in as good :i
condition as possible. In tho mean
timo tho captain attended to the
wonuded. When tho wreckage v:w
oloared awav the s tils were bent on
tho remaining spary, and the vessel
kept nw.iy for Boston, the- nearest
poiut Iier hull is in good condition
notwithstanding the straining, aud
she will probably be taken into Bath
for repairs. ,

Washixgtox, Sept 19. The navy
department to-day received the offi
cial report of the United States
steamer San Francisco. Certain
irregularities were discovered in it
which will necessitate its return to

finally accepted by the navy depart

will probably delay the formal accept
ance of the vessel by the government

Chicago, Sept 19. Entirely with

has been completely successful. Two

The Arrest by the Government
Special to The astobiasJ
Loxdon, Sept 19. The Chronicle
and Daily Neics ridicule Secretary
Balfour's course in arresting Messrs.
O'Brien and Dillion assuming that
the object of the government Is to
prevent their American mission.
They say the desired purpose will not
be accomplished by the detention of
these prisionera. Other Nationalists
will be sent to America in their stead
and the delegates, though of minor
fame and lacking eloquence and logic,
will be more than compensated by
what they will bo able to tell of the
persecution and injustice. The Con
servative organs support they govern
ment's action, but do not venture to
predict any beneficial result of the
ANG OF COUNTERFEITERS.
Detectives Endeavor to Locate
Them in Canada.
Special to The astouiax.I
Ottawa, Sept 19. Superintendent
Bell, of tho United States secret ser
vice, is in Toronto, accompanied by
two detective officers. He has in
hand One of the most extraordinary
cases of counterfeiting in America for
many years. The investigation, so
far as it has progressed, indicates that
a regularly organized gang of coun
terfeiters have been at work for years
manufacturing base old coins and
other curios. It has been discovered
that some of these counterfeits have
been manufactured in the neighbor
hood of Toronto, and expressed to the
United States. Tho investigation has
been' conducted quietly for six months,
but as yet the counterfeiters have not
been run to the earth.
VERBOSE AND CLUMSY.
The Terms Applied to the Dillon
and O'Brien Warrant.
Socotal to The AstouianI.
London, Sept. 19. A study of the
warrant upon which Dillion and
O'Brien were arrested shows that it f ail3
to specify any particular offenses for
which tho arrests wero ordered. The
dooument is verbose and clumsy in
style and matter. Mr. Heady believes
that it is fatally defective, and that if
tho accused are granted an appeal
they will be able to have the proceed
ings squashed. Sir Charles Russell,
an eminent barrister, is apparently of
the same view. In a speech at Dar
lington last night he referred to the
shadowy nature of the charges, and
said that similar arrests had been set
aside in tho past.

will win, but being an American and
taking into consideration the fact that
