FOUNDERING OF THE AMALIA STEAM- SHIP. The total loss of this large steamer, one of the new line of steamers recently established in connection with an overland route to India from Liverpool, was made known in the City on Tuesday, and from the very heavy amount of insurances effeoted on her at Lloyd's and different marine insurance off--laearlv < £ 250,000—her wreck excited considerable interest. The Amalia was a first-class steamer, 3,000 tons burthen, and was owned by Messrs. Pagavanni and Co., of Liverpool. She was constructed under special survey, at Glasgow, in 1860. She had six bulkheads, was 277 feet long, 37 feet beam, 25 feet 6 inches depth of hold, and was fitted with engines of 280 horse power. She left Liverpool on Saturday, the 6th inst., with a very heavy oargc) for Malta and Alexandria, and the pilot left her at o.30 that afternoon—all well. Nothing further was heard until Monday, when the Laconia steamer reached Liverpool, and broag ut intelli- gence of the Amalia, having foundered, being a total loss in the Bay of Biscay on the 12th instant, after six days beating about in a very heavy gale. The passen- gers ana crew were saved by the Laconia. The Amalia foundered in lat. 46.31 N., long. 8.40 W. All t £ e officers, crew, and passengers lost their baggage and everything belonging to them. The loss of the steamer is attributable Aainly to the bunkers not being fitted with lid coverings.
