DISASTERS AT SEA. A Beuter's telegram, dated Liverpool, January 28, states that intelligence has been received there of a serious disaster to the Swansea brig Argo. The ship I Shenla spoke the Argo on the 19th inst., when the officer in charge announced that on the 5th inst. she shipped a heavy sea, which washed the captain and three of the erew overboard, all of them perishing. The Shenla put three of her crew on board the Argo. Ot the 26th inst. Lloyd's agent at Padstow reported that, the New Parliament, schooner, had pat into Padstiw, the captain of which vessel stated that he had p 3eed a sinking steamer, wjth all hands on the bndge. north-east of Pentire Head. The steamer had a straight up and down stem, white bulwarks aft, red oridge, yellow funnel, black hull, and was rigged as a fore-and-aft schooner, with polo masts (no topmasts), and was about 200 tons burthen. At dusk on the 26th a boat was sighted from Padstow containing five men (another report says seven men); but she was swamped when about half a mile from the peint, after which two men only were seen. The lifeboat at Padstow made repeated attempts to reach the unfortunate men but, owing to the strong wind and tide, £ tis was impossible, as the lifeboat could not make headway, and there was no steam tag of sufficient power available at Padstow to assist her in getting to the men. A boat has since been wished ashore in Padstow Harbour marked "S.s. Pioneer, 8wansea.—E. J. Nicholas, Master;" and is probably the one which was seen to swamp at the mouth of the harbour. The owners of the Pioneer, st., which leftlho Mumbles on WedMeday last, have no news yet of the steamer's arrival, and it is feared that this is the steamer which has gone down with all hands near Padstow.
