Ilall—Was He Poisoned 1 The Tyson Party Abandoned on .the loo by Buddington. Mutiny and Anarchy on Board' the Missing Vessel. [To tho A atociaUd Preot .l INbwYouk, May 21.—John Herron, the stew ard of tho Polaris, makes tho following state ment concerning tho sickness of Oapt. Hall t - “Oapt. Hall had good health. up to thoilmoof returning from his sledge expedition. Ho was sick, when ho came onboard, but complained soon afterward, and said tbat the heat of tho cabin affected him. I asked what ho would havo. I'waa anxious to got him. something nice. ‘■Ho didn't carp .about anything but a cup of ooffoo, and didn’t drink oven that. Ho was .slok a fortnight, and itched very little. He was per fectly delirious during tho lastfowdays; I think ho was paralyzed in one side. There was : nothing sudden about his death. Ho was at tended by Dr. Bessolls and Mr. Morton, who did everything in their power to alloviato. his sufferings. His death has made us all fool very sad.” Oapfc, Tyson, speaking of Oapt. Hall’s death, says i 'S Hall was sick fifteen days. Ho was In sensible when ho died. Ho started from the ship on tho sledge-expedition, northward on tbo 10th of October* Ho woe absent fourteen days ahd returned on.tho 21th of October to tho ship. On tho Bth of November he died, and was buried on tho 11th., His grave bore south-southeast, and about 600 paces distant from tho observato ry in tbo Polaris Hay, which was in latitude 81 degrees SO minutes, longitude 61 degrees 11 minutes, bn shore. Wo orootbd a ' hoard over' hla grave, with an in inscription giving his nemo, ago-r(SO years), tho date of ms death, and tbo command of the North Polar Expedi tion. All hands except tho-cook attended his funeral. It was a dark, dismal, cold, windy, and disagreeable day. Tho wind was howling mourn fully, aud tho hearts of all wero enveloped in the deepest sadness. I bold a lantern, and by tho light of it tho beautiful service of tbo Episcopal Church was road by Mr. Bryant. Few of those present at the banal will forget the deeply af-‘ footing scone. Old* sailors, whoso faces had been bronzed by summer suns, and frozen in Arctic seas, wept aloud; Gapt. Hall was uni versally beloved, and bis death, at a time when his enterprise promised so hope fully,' was feltbyhis survivors to bo an irre trievable loss. -Those thoughts wore upper most in tho minds of all, and wbon tho funeral party returned to the ship thoro was a hushed silence attending tho' performance of every duty.” ' Esquimaux Joe, In his published statement, spooks in a disapproving way of Capt. Budding ton. the sailingmaater of the Polaris, and says that Capt. HaU was poisoned, and that Capt. Hall so expressed himself to him (Joe), saying there was something bod in tho coffee which he drank on returning from His sledge expedition; that it made him sick, and that ho had a burning sensation, Hans Christian's statement is to the samo effect. The prevailing impression among tho unfor tunate nineteen who wore loft behind was that Buddington bad willfully abandoned thorn to their fate. Ho bad-been anticipating tho break ing op of tho ico for some time, aud if he had wished to have Capt. Tyson and uis companions on board, ho could oksily have represented mat ters to thorn in snob a-light that they would not have ventured to bo absent at so critical a func ture. But no such intimation was given to tho mon on tho ice. The vessel did not drift away so suddenly that the men could not have boon rescued from their perilous position. Capt. Tyson says: “I could have got aboard tho vessel that night and boon there now. but 1 would not loavo the women and children. My duty was on tbo ice. I thought ho would got back to us the noxt d&y, which he could have done. The breaking away was caused by the floo to which the ship was fastened drifting in between tho land and somo icebergs that wero jammed. The Jam broke up the floe, and tbo vessel broke away. It was about .0 or 10 o'clock at night, and the temperature was at about zero. That evening it had been 10 degrees above.” Capt. Tyson thinks that the ill-feeling and bad designs of Baddlngton and a few others who wore his accomplices had continued from tbo first, on account of Capt. Hall’s determination to go as far north as possible, and Buddlngton's determination, from fear or whatever cause, that ho should not. After Capt, Hall's death, most of tho . others were in favor of . continu ing and pushing north: and Copt. Tyson says that Buddington several times expressed bis de termination to send them (Tyson and his party) “ on the rood to hell,” as soon os an opportunity offered. He characterizes Buddington as “ a groat scoandrol," and doolares.that ho purposely abandoned them to destruction. Ho gives Myers tho character of being energetic and,qual ified in his department, but thinks that ho was not sufficiently aware of the condition of affairs at tho time of the separation and the possibility of getting rescued then to bo able to give any opinion upon it. Tho Gormans, according to hie account, ruled the ship after Capt. Hall’s death, and there was neither law nor system on board, everyone working entirely on his own account. Capt. Tyson did not speak fully os to tbo death of Cant. Hall. He appeared to bo deeply grieved and reticent upon tho subjects connect ed with his adventures and sufferings. No doubt Capt. Tyson and Mr. Myers are in possession of information which they are unwilling to com municate yet, but which will doubtless become public at the proper time. Joe, the Esquimaux says.—partly in answer to inquiries, and partly speaking on his own ac count without being interrupted at all.—that bo was very fond of Capt. Half: didn’t like Had dington, who was always talking behind others' books. Some men hero (in Bt. Johns) and some in tho ship used to quarrel. I wont with Copt. Hall for the purpose of going in a sledge to the North Polo. After Cant. Hall died Buddington would not go. I told lluddington I caqio to go north. Ho wouldn’t lot mo go. Buddington and I quarreled a good deal about it. 1 went with Hall on tho last sled, and Hans and Chester the Mato. Wo went fifty miles north of tho ship on tho ico and land ; fouud musk ox tracks on tho land. Tho sun was nearly gone. When we oamo back to tho ship Capt. Hal! told mo, when ho was sick, that somebody gavo him some thing bad. Ho was sick two weeks. Budding ton did not tako caro of him. I think it was not right. It mado mo fool bad. Captain Hall’s throat swelled, aud he could not drink. Ho said ho was burning inside. I sat up with him ovory night with another man. Hall was In the cabin. I talked to Hall much. Ho did not talk to tho others os much as to mo. I didn’t sco Hall tho first night aftor ho oamo aboard from tho sled. I camo aboard with him in tho aftomoon. Ho looked woll and happy, and spoko pleasantly. Tho four of us, Hall, Chester, Hans and 1 had coffoo, when wo camo aboard. I had mino in my own room underneath tho cabin, and tbo two others in the gallery; At 10 o’clock that night my wife told me that Hall was very sick, and vomiting. Ho ate somothiug tho next morning. I wont to see him, and said : “ What is tho matter ? ” Ho was all alono in tho cabin. Ho said: "Arc you pretty woll, Joe?” I said, “Yob.” Ho said, “You drank bad coffee last night.” I said, “No.” I askod him did ho drink bad coffoo. Ho said there was something bad in the coffee ho drank last night, making him sickto bis stomach. Tho same morning ho became very sick, and was vomiting. Aftor five days ho foit better. He woko up and said ho wanted to sco my little girl. Ho said to bor that ho thought ho would leavo her. but bo didn’t like to do so. Aftor ho got better be got four medical books, to try aud soe What made him sick.. He studied bard, and said to me, pointing toallno In the book, “That mode me sick,” It was something about poison,- i think. After Hall died, every body was watching one another! 1 did not un derstand 'what they meant. All wore afraid tbat somebody 1 would,pat poison In the water, broad, or Bomelliing. It looked like it, Ho was poi soned. ’ Bnddington x f 'did not like to go to tho

cabin. Ho was quarreling all tho tlmo. Hans Christian's statement upon this, though much briefer, Is to the same ofToot,. Tho_ correspondent says tho expedition had passed what Kano supposod'.tobe the Polar Boa, which Is now proved to bo a sound. Beyond this they penetrated Into Itohoson's. Channel, and wore there on tho last day. of' August. 1871. Manvimporlant,eirornnstancos unmistakably Indi cated tho existence of an unfrozen ocean beyond tho channel. ~ Mild Weather, with fogs and mists, brought down by northerly winds could eomo from no other source. Land was visible to tho north and west of this body of water a great dis tance. Now was tho moment to embrace tho present favorable opportunity which was liable to bo defeated by tho slightest Sudden change, and by a prompt continuation of their hitherto successful adventure achieve tho glorious goal for which thoy hod hazarded so much. Hero, on tho eVo of an easy victory, arose that fatal difference •°r °P* n *on,' which blasted all tho heroic explorer’s Prospects,,,' and rendered fruitless that •mighty energy, and labor which hod al ready led him such a 'distance over tho barren and inhospitable regions of tho un known North. Tho salling-maator, Buddington, bad several times expressed his anxiety to go no further, and strongly urged tho necessity of re treating to winter atTort Hope, nearly 210 miles south of their present highly advantageous posi tion. Hall was determined to proceed, if possi ble, and would not oonaont to tho latter proposi tion. Buddington, however, persisted. Before concluding to retreat, Hall called a council, con sisting of himself. Copt. Tyson, 'Chester, tho Mato, and Buddington, to consider which course was most advisable. At this council Cant. Tyson strongly advocated Oapt, Hall's views, and urged tho Impropriety of desisting. Tho bravo and the right causo was overruled, •to which circumstance, it is possible, Oapt., Hall owed his death. If tho vessel had continued on its course as Cant. Hal! desired and urged, tho expedition would In ill probability •have been crowned with success, end tho dreams of geographers and explorers havo been realized, but an unaccountable timidity, tho offspring of crayon cowardice or other improper motive, an nihilated tho hopes of Capt. Hall. Buddington, from tho position which ho occupied, was master •of tho situation. Ho said: “Thus far havo you gone • you shall go no further," and he was obeyed, reluctantly, of course, as a matter of necessity. It is impossible to an&lyzo tho mo tives which prompted Buddington. From Ids knowledge of tho Arotio regions, ho must , have known that it was os dangerous to turn back -as to proceed, and that if tho vosso! was to be frozen in, she might as well bo frozen in at one place as another. Tho foot that Oapt. Tyson supported tho views of Capfc. Hall furnishes ad ditional confirmation that tho latter was right and Buddington wrong. Tho blame, if there is blame, attending tho failure of the expedition, will cleave to Buddington, unless ho can, if still living, satisfactorily explain what now seems to bo his unaccountable conduct. It is ' not too much to say that his action blasted all the hopes of his superior. Although thwarted in his grand design for a time, tho explorer did not abandon his investigations, but in company with tho Esquimaux men and tho mato started upon a slodgo expedition, from which ho returned to die. Oapt. Had appears to havo been tho only ono of the scientific department who ventured. Washington, May 21.—Tho Evening Star says, with reference to tho account of tho Arctic ad venture, as it appears in its telegraphic columns to-day: Tbo ouflpected poisoning of Capt. Hall recalls a pro diction made before tbo sailing of tho expedition, by a person la this city well acquainted with its personnel, that Capt.- nail would never return olive, nut would fall a victim to tbo envy of some of tho party. WALL STREET. Rorlow of tho Money, Stock, Gold, and Produce Markets* Special JHtpatch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, May 21,—Wall street is intensely dull. Money continues in good supply. It is said that many country banks have been pur chasers at 7 per cent of first-class ninety days Now York commercial paper, believing it will yield bettor interest than they could hope to roalizo from any other investment. STOCKS weak and inactive.' Prices mado a gradual de cline of # to.l percent, but, with tho excep tions of Paoifio>Mail, Erie, and Western Union,tho changes are less than % per cent. Tho decline in Erio, in sympathy, with the fall at London, assisted tho downward movement. Brok ers are engaged in circulating a petition .to tho Governing. Committee, asking that busi ness hours bo embraced between 10 a. m. and 3 E. m. from tho Ist of Juno to tbo Ist of Soptom or. This is boing signed extensively. GOLD. • Notwithstanding the favorable reports from Europe, gold has been weak. Exactly who is selling the market down does not appear, and tho only reasonable solution of the mystery is that one of tho leading operators is doing so pre paratory to bidding for $1,500,000 of Govern ment gold to-morrow. All accounts agree that a loading operator has loaded up with about $10,000,000 for speculative purposes, and ho maybe desirous of obtaining a few millions more before ho* unfolds his sohemo for tho control of tho market. The novel requirement of tho Treasury that one-half of to-morrow's sale must bo paid for in legal-tenders excites much comment,' and the right of the Secretary to make tno demand is not conceded by many. The Russia took out $318,- 413 in specie, of which SIOO,OOO wero gold ship ped by tho Bank of British North America against cable transfers, at an actual loss. The remainder was silver bars. GOVERNMENTS quiet, but steady. Tho $500,000 in bonds pur chased by tho Treasury to-day wore taken at prices ranging from 116 66-100 to 116 99-100, which is a vary cheap rate, and $1,000,000 could have boon taken at prices much below par in gold.
