Grooly abandoned Fort Uongo August 9,1883 nnd reached Band Inlet September 29th following , with his entire - tire party well. Ho abandoned all his boats and was adrift thirty days on nn ice flee in Smith's sound. His permanent camp wns es tablished Oct. 21st , 1883 , at n point where he was found. Dining the iiina months bis party had to live upon a scant allow ance of food brought from Fort Conger ; that cached at Payer harbor and Capo Isabella by Sir George Norto it ) 1875 but found much damaged by lapse of time ; that cached by Bcubo nt Capo Sablno in 1883 , nnd a small .amount saved from the wreck of the Proteus in 1883 nnd landed by Lieutenants Garllng- ton and Colwoll on beach near where Gree- ly'H party was found. When those provisions were consumed the party was forced to liyo upon boiled sealskin utiipped from the sialskin clothing nnd lichens and shrimps caught In good weather , when they were strong enough to rnako exertions. As It took 1,300 shrimps to fill n gallon measure tha labor wan too exhausting to depend upon them to sustain life entirely. The channel between Capo Sablno and Littleton , Island , did not close on account of violent gales all wlnterso that the 2-10 rations at tlio latter paint could not bo reached.

Lieutenant Lock- week was turncod back in 1883 by open water nn the north ( troonlnnd shore , the party bare ly escaping a drift into the Polar ocean. Dr. 1'avy in 1881 ! , following the Mnrkham route , vas adrift ono day in the 1'olar ocean north of capo Henry , i-scaplng to land , abandoning nearly everything. In 188 I made a spring mid , later , a summer trip into the Interior of the Grluncll Land , discovering Lake llazen , some sixty by ton miles In extent , which is fed by an ice capo of north Grinnoll Land and drains Huggles river and Weyprocht Fiord into - to Conybearo bay and Archer Fiord. From the summit of Mount Arthur , 5,000 feet , the contour of the land west of Conger mountains convinced ma that Grinnoll Lnml tends di rectly south from Lieutenant Aldrich's farth est point In 1870. In 1883 Lieutenant Lock- wood and Sergeant Brainerd succeeded in crossing Grinnell Land , and , ninety miles from Beatrix Bay , the head of Archer's Fiord , struck the head of a Fiord from the western sea , temporarily named by Lockwood , Greely Fiord. From the center of the Fi'ird ' in lati tude 80 minutes and 30 seconds , longitude 78 minutes and 30 seconds , Lieutenant Lock- wood saw the northern shorn terminate some twenty miles west and the southern fhore extending somu fifty miles , with Oapo _ Lock- wood some seventy miles distant , apparently separate land from Grinnell Laud. I have named the now land Arthur Land. Lieutenant Lockwood they followed , going and returning , an ice capo averaging about 150g feet of perpendicular face. It lollows that Grinnoll Land interior is an ice capped belt of country some sixty mtjoj wide , between the northern and southern ice cape1) . In March , 1881 , while Sergeant Long was hunting , ho looked from the northwest oldu of Mount Caiey to Hayes sound , seeing on the northern coast three capes westward of the furthest seen by Nar B in 1876. The sound nxtends some twenty miles fur ther west than is shown In the English charts , but is probably shut in by land , which showed up across the westtrn end. The two years' station duties and observations , all explora tions and the retreat to Capo Sablno were ac complished without lots ot life , disease , se rious accidents , or oven severe frost bites. No scurvy was experienced at Conger and but one death occured from it last winter. ( Signed ) GliKELKr , commanding. iV second dispatch from Lioutouant Greely is ns follows : ST. JOHNS , July 17.

During the trip lilizon froze solid both his hands and feet and lost them , surviving , lowevor , through the terrible winter and ipriiig until July 8. The survivors owe their ivcs to the indomitable energy of Captain schloy and Lieutenant Emory , who , preceded ) y three and accompanied by five whalers , orced their vessels from Upernavik through Melville bay into north water at Cape York with the foremost whaler.

WAHHIKUTO.V , July 17 Mr. George Kor nan , of this city , aud a well known Arctic traveller and author , who has taken an active Interest in the iccent attempts to relieve Lieutenant Greely's party , and who wont fore the Arctie relief board last spring to urge the offering of Mich a reward as would Becnro the co-operation of whalers in the search , was asked by nn Associated press re porter to-night what ho thought of the nonu secured from St. Johns. Ho replied , "It's a mnarkahio story and heroic achievement In the field , clouded by disaster , duo to incom- potency in Wo&hington. If Lieutenant ( jriso ly und his party had all returned in safety to tlio United State * , us they 'might have tlone had they been properly purported their Arc tic record in point of tklllful management and success would have been unparalleled. No other Arctto expedition has uvor spent two consecutive winters and pirc of the third iu feuuh high latitude uud achieved bitch results without a casualty or n uinglo caii of terlous giuknius. If Lieut Greely hid found the month of Smith's sound nirl tliu shelter and food ho hud a right to expect there , ho could probably have brought his entire party back to the Unltwl States in perfect health , after thrco winters In the highest northern latitude * that over have been reached and niter a series of sledging campaigns which for boldness and skillful execution have rarely , if uver , been surpassed , " "Could the disaster which befell his parly lint o bran averted with the knowledge avail able at the time the relief exhibition were litti-d out ? " "Unquestionably , and that n the pity of it. It doubles the grief which must bo felt in the face of such a terrible catastrophe , to think thnt two ships on successive ywira and proba bly a third were In a po. ltlon to land stores which would have saved the lives of those eighteen men , Boobo , in 188'J , anchored in 1'nvor harbor , just north of Capo Saline , with n ship full of stores , ( inrlington , the nrxt summer anchored In the same place , and also with a ship full of stores , and a few day it later the Yantic , with four months provisions on board , was only thirty miles away. Any one of thcso three sh'ps might have landed stores exactly where Greoly afterwards made his winter camp and have carried the bravo party through , but their commanding oilicors wore not ordered to do go , and they did not think of it. " "Wore Greoly's movements these which it was anticipated they would be ? " "They wore precisely such as I anticipated. It was thought at signal ollice , ho would remain at his statio.ii until September 1st , but ns I pointful out in n letter to tlio Now York Herald on the 17th of last September , If ho remained until Sep tember Ixt ho could not got away at nil that year , on account of the impracticability of sledging operations along that const in the full. 1 therefore thought ho would abandon his station in July or August of 1883 and eomo down to the north of Smith'd sound , In boats , ns he was , in fact , doing at the very tlmo my letter was written. " "How important are the discoveries made by Lieutenant Greoloyl" "From the point of view of nn Arctic ge ographer they nro of first-class importance , Lieutenant Greoly has not only taken away from Commander Mnrkhnm , of the British navy , the blue ribbon of Arctic discovery lor the highest latitude over attained iu any part of the world , but ho has greatly extendud the limits of Nnros explorations , both in Green land and Grinnell Land. The fact that two of Greeloy'ssledgo parties were stopped in open water in the Polar bisin and that both were at ono time adrift Iu strong currents , which threatened to carry them helplessly away northward , would seem to show tlut the Po lar basin is not a solid sea of ancient , immova ble ice which Nares described , and which ho declared was "never navigable. " Lieutenant Groaly's explorations extend over three de grees of la itudo and nearly forty degrees longi tude. Ho has virtually ascertained the true outline of Grinnell Land , and hos crossed it from cast to west , and on the northern coast , Greenland has . gone one degree _ of latitude and ten degrees o longitude beyond the farthest point reached by Captain Nnres , accomplished sledging olli- eur. Lieutenant Boaumout. These achievements alone reflect the highest credit upon Lieutenant Greely und his men , but to them , of course must bo udded the great mass of scientific knowledge gathered by the party durhiy their two years nt Lady Franklin Day. Incidents ol'tlio ST. JOHNS , N. F. , July 17. On the arrival at anchorage of the relief squadron to-day an Associated proas correspondent interviewed Lieutenant Grculy and other survivors of the Arctic e.ilony and the following foots were disclosed. After passing two winters nt Kort Conger in scientific research Lieutenant Greely , with his whole party intact , broke up encampment and commenced a southwest descent. This was accomplished amid great penis from gales of wind , ice nips and other casualties. Capo Sabine having been reached a temporary homo was erected , built of stones and covered by the boat's sails brought along , by the party on the ! 2'Jth ' of-Senteinbor ; winter quarter ! wcra ostaMishM nt'Capo R&himThe ; et-m- mtfsariitt had Cccaino very moagro , nnd n cache of provisions left by the Proteus last your ; but poorly supplemented it. The steam launch had become fast in the ica a few weeks previous and had to bo abandoned dur ing the whole winter. The first havoc in the ranks was early in Januarv , when ot thu men dropped off with scurvy. On the Oth of April Lieutenant Lockwood and Mr. Kico , photog rapher , succumbed after an heroic attempt to secure for their starving comrades about 200 pounds of moat supposed to 1)3 cached at a place named Bad creek , distant about bftceu miles from the encampment. Israel , the astronomer , perished May Ii7tb. Lieutenant Kishlingbury died Juno 1st , and Dr. Pavy , naturalist , slept in death Juno iGth. ! Not one of the victims realized that death was near. Two Esquimaux also perished , ono of starvation and the other drowned In his kayak , being pierced by Homo newly Formed ice April 17th thus cutting of | all hope of getting any supply of seal meat for the starving explorers , The Eskimo were moat faithful and devoted followers nnd helpers of Lieutenant Grculy. Ellison was repcued and safely brought on board the fctoarnehip Bear , where ho died a few days subsequently. This is an extraordinary instance of human endurance. While away some ten miles from his hut last winter , the temperature suddenly fell to 43 degrees below /.cro. His hands and feet wcro frozen to the very bone and ho was dragged by his companions in nlmoata dying condition to hij hut. His foot and hnnili were literally amputuated by ( jtho incisive frost nnd in this terrible fctato h- > lived through the dreary months that inter vened. The rescued bodies of twelve of the victims have boon brought up by the steamers Boar and Thu tin. embalmed iu tank ] filled with alcohol. The survivors are nil doing well nnd are rapidly gaining llo h and strength again. Lieutonaut Greely , who was in an exceedingly critical condition when transferred to the Thetis , Is now able to move about. This morning ho drove out for an hour's riilo to got country air , nnd came back resuscitated. The rescue took place on the 'J2d of Juno under circumstance * of great difficulty , Tlio Thotls nnd Boar lay off from blioro about three hundred yards. There was a terlflio gala blowing from southwest and n heavy BO.I was running and a formidable Ice nil ) was apparently inevitable. Lieutenant Groely und the other six survivors had to bo transferred from their camp to n steam laupch and whale bout in their bleep- lug bag * , and while tteaming from land to the ships the destruction of the whole party at ono tlmo seemed certain. The coa swept furiously over them nnd the fury of the wind threatened to cagul/.o them. At length they were safely placed on board the rescuing squadron , where every possible prepara tion wnH made to insure their re covery and comfort. The lireoly party reached a higher latitude thah over reached by polar explorers , namely , 83 degrees and iifi fi-UI minntofi.
