LOSS OF ANOTHER LIVERPOOL STEAMER. Another Liverpool screw-steamer has been lost on the coast of Novia Scotia, but whether by, the prevalence of a storm, foggy weather, and the action of currents, or negligence on the part of those in charge of the ship, we are at present uninformed, as the telegram announcing the disaster was brought by the Persia from Cape Race. From other sources, however, we learn that the Pactolus, under the command of Captain Johnson, having on board a large and valuable cargo, sailed for Halifax and St. John's, New Brunswick, on the 22nd of August last, and in due course reached Halifax, where a portion of the cargo was discharged, the vessel afterwards pro- ceeding on her voyage to St. John's. She was not destined, however, to reach that port, for she struck on a place called Liverpool, in the neighbourhood of Nova Scotia, and became a total wreck, little hopes being expressed of any portion of the cargo being saved. How the vessel same to get on shore where she did is at present unknown here, as, by a reference to a map of that part of the Atlantic it will be seen that Liverpool is a long way out of the course generally taken by vessels sailing from. Halifax to St. John's. The Pactolus was a ship of 653 tons burthen, and was chartered for the voyage to Halifax and St. John's by Messrs. Lamport and Holt, of Liverpool. She was until recently engaged in the trade between that port and Constantinople, and her career while in the trade was a chapter of mishaps, as she was never out of "lumber." The telegram makes no allusion to the fate of the crew.
