by Naval Cadet Miller Is the most graphic ,
and I cable It verbatim :
HOWTIIK ACCIKKNT OfCUIlUF. ! ) .
"Wo were running along in a thick fog
with a light liree/.e. Although going at a re
duced speed wo must have been making sev
enteen knots. Wo breakfasted at half past
10 o'clock and at about 111 sat down In the
Htnoking room with a friend playing a quiet
game of cards. Our steam whistle was blowIng -
Ing every minute. I left the smoking room fern
n moment at half past 11 , when suddenly
I hoard a strange , shrill whistle that seemed
to bo just alongside on the port bow. Then
came a tremendous crash , then a second
crash , then a third , then a tremendous scrap
ing and squeaking as the two vessels seemed
to bo eating into each other. The nolso sud
denly ceased and the other steamer seemed
to bo standing olT In the fog , and in a few
moments disappeared. Meanwhile every ,
body rushed on deck.
TIII : oKricniiB coor.
Captain Trauband all his ollleers were as
cool as possible und reassured the passengers ,
saying , 'Tnero's no danger ; keep calm. ' 1
could see that wo had been struck on the port
how exactly at the Inteisectlon of the tor-
ward athwart ship bulkhead with the outer
hull. 1 afterward learned that two big holes
had beim made , one abovii the water line and
the other about a > ard below the water line.
Captain Traub at once turned thu ship
round , Intending to beach her. Wo steamed
along at ten knots an hour , but In a few min
utes thn Champagne's bow began to settle
steadily , going lower and lower until in
about an hour thu bow was so low that the
propeller began to work badly , being forced
nigh out ot the water. Captain Traub at
once ordered water to bo
I'UMl'KIl INTO IIKH STr.IlN
to keep the vessel on an even keel and the
propeller underwater. Wo thus got the speed
up to ton knots again. We kunt our whistle
going and fired guns every nilnnto. and
hoisted the International signal for 'great
danger , ' 'want immediate relief.1 There was
now a slight fog ; no land was visible. At
l'U : ) we bighted the British steam collier
Vulture. The Vultutc changed her
course and followed in our wake ,
but could not keep up with
us as we wore going ten knots and the Vul
ture could make only nlno. A little before
II o'clock Captain Traub beached the
Champagne on a soft mud bank. She set
tled Into It almost without a shock. The
cabin passengers kept peifcctly cool , but the
thousand Italian emigrants became perfectly
wild with tear. The emigrants had had nn
breakfast , as they have their food later than
the cabin passengers , so being the whole day
without food they howlea and

They fell on their knees and prayed , and
hundreds of them , shouting "Santa Marie ,
Santa Marie , " made a regular charge aft.
They swarmed like locusts over the second
and then over the llrst cabin decks , and were
prevented of Retting possession of the tlrst
cabin Itself only by the sailors who stood by ,
hatchets In hand. The great thing now waste
to get this vast mass of humanity
Into the boats and on boaid the
Vulture. Captain Traub and the otliccrs acted
splendidly. The sailors stood at the gang
way with hatchets to prevent any rush into
thotiouts. Women with Infants In their
aims were the llrst of all to bo put In the
boats , and that without regard whether they
were lirHt or second-class or emigrants. This
inaneuvie was successfully executed , the offi
cers handing the women Into the boats with
cool and calm politeness , as it tn a ball
room. Next the single women and those
without protectors weio conducted into the
boats , and all safely got on board the Vul
ture. Hero I must mention the plucky con
duct of all the young American ladles , with
out exception. Miss Stephnnson set an ex
ample , and refused to put on a life preserver ,
saying : 'Some poor girl among the emi
grants may need It more than I do , ' and all
the American > oung ladles , of whom there
were many very pietty and charming on
board , refused to go Into the boats till all the
other women , whether emigrants or not , had
boon placed in safety on board the Vulture.
As soon as the female portion ot the caigo
had all been rescued , the emigrant

Twenty of them managed to overpower
two sailors who were guarding a boat hangIng -
Ing from the side and Jumped pell niell Into
the boat. The weight of the emigrants was
RO great as to straighten out the hooks from
which the boat swung and the emigrants
and the boat went Into the water with a tre-
inondous splash. Most of these did not
know how to swim and wcro probably
drowned. 'I he other male passengers , emi
grants , stewardesses and cabin servants were
* all put in safety on board the Vulture. Of
course no ono was allowed to carry with him
any baggairo or valise ot any kind. When
wo got aboard the Vulture wo were packed
like sardines. As the Vulture was in ballast
the captain was afraid of becoming top
heavy with so much wclcht on deck , so ho
put all the main emigrants Into the hold and
Into the coal bunkers , wheio they continued
howling , praying and yelling. The mails
vrero also brought on board the Vulture ,
which started for Havre at twenty minutes
to 6. There was literally nothing nut standIng -
Ing room on board the S u I hire , except on
the rail , where men and women were squat
ting like crows. Ono Italian passenger en-
lUeni'd the trip by having n lit

had had none all day. I wish to express mj

to the lir.K.l Quito a stir has been cieatcd
In official , political and army circles hero by
the lire of words between General Uosser and
General 1'hll Sheridan. The latter to-day
produced the order under which ho acted
when he rode through the Sheuandoah val
ley burning provisions , etc. , and laying to
waste that wiiolo country , and It proves that
ho acted solely on the order of General Grant.
The order is dated at Uedar Creek , Va. , Au
gust 10,1M4 , and directs the destruction of
wheat , hay and provisions from Millwood to
Winchester , and also the capture of all
mules , horses and cattle that may be useful to
the army , it specifies that "Loyal citizens
can bring in their claims against the govern
ment for this necessary destruction and that
shops will bo burned , and oillcials in charge
of this delicate but necessary duty must In
form the people that the object Is to make
this valley uninhabitable for rallying parties
of the rebel army. " Spoaklng about the
burning of buildings General Sheridan said
to-day : "In destroying a barn of hay we
naturally did not remove the hay to destroy
It , but burned the barn and all.
It would liavo taken too much time
to do otherwise. " The people arc almost
unanimous In the opinion that Sheridan has
not only whipped Kossor in Virginia , but in
his post bellum engagement and controversy
has brought the general ot the army Into not
a little prominence. The following from
this evening's Critic shows : "Tho recent
mallginant letter of General Thomas L.
Hosser , ox-confederate brigadier general , de
nouncing General Sheridan for war devas
tations in the Shenandoah valley , lias re
kindled the smothered camp tires of the

line and the veteran boys in blue are tiring
Into Kosser with red not whot. It has also
had the effect of starting a presidential boom
for the lieutenant general ot the army which
mav possibly assume Important proportions.

since the banquet of the Loyal Legion
Wednesday night , it Is almost certain that
the presence of Senator Hawley had an im
portant political significance. Soon after his
arrival he was met by Murat Ilalstead and
inlluentlal memberstof the Lincoln club and
escorted to Its rooms. A quiet conference ,
Informal but earnest , was held on the question
of the presidency. The senator was given to
understand that Ohio wanted Sherman for
the presidency , and would make any combi
nation to effect that end. It was stated that
It an agreement could bo ont cred into with
some Inlluentlal eastern leader like Senator
Hawley ho could got the vice-presidency. A
leader would be preferred from lilalne's own

negotiations were going on for the sale o !
the Metropolitan team , as Wyman was tired
of paying out tor the support of the club and
that the sale may take place any day.
Another startling base ball utiiior last night
was that one of the biggest deals known
was being mauo between the league and tha
American association whereby the Cincinnati
club was to be transferred to'tho league , and
the Indianapolis club to take Its place In tha
American association. The excitement ot
base ball men In this city In consequence was
very great , Inasmuch as the story of the
latter deal came from a well known Clncln *

Is known there.
