THE GREAT GALE. kon of the Steamer commodore on Lone island Sound—An Awful Storm undo «»ruuheu Among llie ra^waciTm [Fiomthc New Yoik World, Dec, 2?.] THE IMII’AItTITiin. On Thursday lust, the 27th lost., at 4 p. m., the steamer Commodore sailed fiom Pier IS, K. it., for Slouingion.with about eighty pas sengers. Including the crew, there were on hoard 100 souls, all told. A steady breeze was blowing from the west as the vessel started, which continued, with no apparent increase in violence, until lull* past nine o'clock, when it turned into a strong nor'- wester, and Gradually grew in violence until 10 o’clock. Then it was that tuc gale broke forth In all its furv, the wind tearing the rig cine of the tWs and pendant masts Into shreds as it whirled by the vessel. Noalarm up to that moment had been created among , the passengers by the unlooked-for violence of the storm, although the waves had begun to roll mountains high, and every gust of wind as it tore Us way through every chink , uud crevice of the vessel, seemed to threaten 1 Ikt immediate destruction. She crcakcdand trembled at everv point, sunk now Into the deep hollow made by an onward speeding wave and the one that hastened, with a roar, in its seething track. Yet she rose again and again, with the waves making a clean sweep over her bows, and sped on before the wind as before. But this was not to last long. The wind grew llcrccr at every moment, and the sea rose higher and higher as the roaring of its ruin-dealing ai-ettor grew louder. Fulkner’s Lights were slaUtcd,and|the steamer wnssteady before the ■wind. The lights were passed, and then, as if the combined elements hud but waited till the last glimmer of a friendly lamp should have been left behind In the darkness, the tempest reached its climax. As It grew darker, the keen north wind redoubled its furv, and the night grow on wPh black and dbhml looks. A biller storm of sleet, sharp, dense, and icy cold, swept the decks, and burst in the trembling windows. The smoke slacks, shaken beyond endurance, fell crash ing to the deck, one toppling over into the waves, which, spun around like a reed by the billows, disappeared in an Instant. The vessel reeled and staggered in the blast. life on ucvrn. The moment of danger had really come. As the captain hurried to the wheel-house to assist the pilot in keeping the vessel to the wind a tremendous sea struck her with a force that seemed to..loosen every beam In her hull, and with a lurch she broached to in :hc trough of the sea and lay at the mercy of the waves. The captain, and the pilot in. the wheel-house, strove, with the strength that men arc giltcd with when the striving is between death and lile, to set her rigbt.a but all to no purpose. The sea had struck the blow that broke her strength to resist its power, and like a huge log she lay. the bullet of every wave, ana the plavthing of every blast of wind. Mas the helm put turd to port, the sea spun the hull to seaward ; was she put before the wind, the blast would strike her staiboard Sow; and again would the helm prove unavailing. Still, with the de tciminatlon of despair, the engineer stood by his engines, and, with a low pressure of steam in the boilers, they were made to work slowly, even while the waves dashed over the decks and carried the chairs from his very door; while the stmboard bow was crushed in, the bulwarks wrenched into frag ments, and the hog-frame shattered by wind and wave, and scattered in a thousand pieces over the waters around. A TERItIBLC SCENE. As the limbers of the vessel creaked more fearfully, and the rushing of the waters be l<-w became more distinct above decks, as they stove in the starboard bows, the word was passed from month to mouth that the vessel had sprung aleak and was fast filling. The scene, ns this terrible intelligence Hash ed m ioss the mind oi each individual, was tcnible iu the extreme. To know that the steamer!::}* at the mercy of the waves, uncon trollable,obeying neither engine nor helm, was indeed a horror in Us-lf, but to hear tbit ainidaU the dashing of waters ami howling of winds, with a sky so dark overhead that the eye could scarcely scan an object at the distance of a few feel outside, added to the ' general despair a hundredfold. Every pas- j singer of tiic cabin, as well us of the deck, was assembled iu the saloon: some were in their nightclothes, others half dresred, while others bad but their bedclothes 1 wiappcd around them to cover their { rtcmi-nndcness. The women clung to the | men, Irionds and strangers alike, while ; the men, wUhblauched cheeks,andcycslhal 1 scenitd.icady to start'out of their sockets with terror, ran to and fro, wringing Vhtnr | hands. In anguish. Despair was pictured on I even* countenance. Somaol the men fell to 1 cur.-lug their fate like madmen, others to weeping like children, while others, mostly women, fell on their knees calling aloud iu pisiyer for Leaven to come to th'-ir aid. And then, amid this terrible scene, came an ad junct of horror that made the whole two-fold morcHcrrible in all Us surroundings. The crew,’who, wiili but one or two exceptions, when thesea first broke into the lower decks, bud entered the bar-room and drank them m-Ivcs into intoxication, now came tumbling into the saloon amid the terrified passengers, and, heedless of theoidersof their olHcers, threw \ heins«’lvca on the vacated berths. In this terrible emergency, while one or two of the crew were working strenuously at the pump#, a call was made lor volunteers to as fti;t iu working the vessel, to which several men responded with alacrity. Fine! fire! Just as the drunken crew bad entered tbe berths a suddfcn pitching of the vessel over turned one of the lumps in the passage-ways causing the light floor to Ignite in one part of the vessel. A passenger, terrified at the Mj:ht, cried out that the vessel was on fire. “Fire!*’ “Fire!” rang out from every part oi the cabin, and amid the shrieks of the terrified women and the yells of the men, a ruth was wade fur the doors; but, fortunate- Iv, before the struggling mass could reach •be outside platforms, a counter cry stopped them in their headlong speed to certain death. The fire was but slight, &ud was <OOll extinguished. iioi'its or anxiety. In the meantime, while in the saloon all was terror and dirtnay. Captain Curtis at be wheel, wiili the pilot and oth*»r ollkcri .{ the boat, aided by certain of the pas;cn »crs. were doing their utmost to reach the Hong Is’urnl shore, widen at the first mo. uci-l of the broaching to of the vessel was Millie twelve miles in the distance. For four mortal hoars, fraught with all the horrors if an expectant ami stidd-n death t» every <oul on board, did these men work, and the parsenger.- in the saloon rave and pray and weep and imprecate in despair. Finally, at half past two o'clock yesterday morning, by dint of humoring the storm —now letting the vessel stai d the full force of the tem pest, now under slow pressure of steam, with the pumps ali working to keep the boat afloat—she gradually diifted within four miles of the shore, oil' Horton’s Point, when ihe anchor was dropped, and fortunately held last. The water waselxallow where the stop was made, and by keeping the pnmps oom tuntli working, the Ivwit was held to her position until daylight, when the anchor was vnt and she dotted within a mile of the shore, where she stood fast ou a sandbar. AM. SAFE. At half past 7 o’clock one of the lifeboats, of wbicli there were two on board, was low crciT. Twenty persons sprang Into her and succeeded in’reaching the land in safety, although ail but three jumped out of the boat into the water when near the shore, leaving her in the hards of persons who were unable to manage her in the breakers. The second boat was then low ered, and after reaching the first boat, took a line to the shore, which was made fast, and by this means the two boats were made to pass and repass from the vessel to the shore until every soul was landed. The passengers were then made comfortable in private hou-cs at the Toint. At ten o’clock the majority took the train at 'Peconic Sta tion, for Hunter's Feint, and arrived in this city about lour o'clock yesterday afternoon. FROM OHIO.
