SUFFERINGS AT SEA: Captain Hall, who arrived at Southampton on Saturday in the Royal Mail steamer Minho, has fur- nished the following statement of the loss of his ship Roseneath, and of the subsequent sufferings of the crew "The British barque Boseneath, of Glasgow, left Mejillones on April 11. Had moderate winds and variable weather till May 6, when a dreadful hurricane set in from N.N.W., veering round to W.S.W., with fearfully high seas continuously filling the decks fore and aft. The ship at length sprung a leak, through the straining. The pumps were constantly kept going, but the leak increased til May 12, when the pumps broke down, and the men were unable to stand at them any longer. Seeing the ship was getting half full of water, and thinking she might founder any moment, after con- sulting with my officers, I ordered the boats out and left the ship at 6.30 p.m. on the above date, to try and make Terra del Fuego or the Straits of Magellan, Our sufferings in the boats for nine days were dreadful— nothing but snow and hail squalls all the time. On May 15 one able seaman, named Thomas Matthews, cited from cold and exposure. Although suffering from swelled feet and legs, we made the Straits of Magellan on May 20. On the following morning we were picked up by the German steamer War da, from Valparaiso to Hamburg, and were landed at Monte Video. I would beg to return our sincere and grateful thanks to the captain, officers, and passengers of the above-named steamer for their great kindness and attention to us in our destitute situation. "I left Monte Video on May 31, on board of the Royal Mail steamship Minho. "In the lifeboat were Capt. Hall, wife, and child, John Poole (boatswain), Carl Lingrest (A.B.), Thos. Matthews (A.B.) died, Charles Honston (A.B.), and Even Oleigson (A.B.) In pinnace (which is missing) Charles Samson (mate), Thos. Brookway (O.S.), John Pornach (A.B.), John E. Brown (carpenter), and John Brown (A.B.) (Signed) "Cap HALL."
