SAILOR'S STORY. M"8 1m IS THE ONLY SURVIVOR FROM A BTTR5BD SHIP. A strange experience is related by a young sailor just admitted to the Plymouth Sailors' Home. The man 18 a Hollander, and speaks English only with ■difficulty. He gives his name as A. Hockstra, and he left Philadelphia for Rotterdam in a steamer called the Isabella Temgij, or some such name. On Friday of last week, when in what lie calls the Bay of Biscay — perhaps the month of the Channel the ship caught fire, was 4>urtied to the water's edge, and foundered with the whole of the crew, numbering 24, on board. The Dutchman says he only had tinre to put on two lifebelts when he found himseu in the water. He lost consciousness, but afterwards discovered he was on board a small vessel which he calls the Panther, and which, from his description, would appear to be the Brrt'Sh torpedo-boat of that name. This vessel put him ashore on Saturday at a coast- guard station near Fowey, to which place he walked.
