* T- 'm TH r- - WHOLE NO. #043. THE W8ASTER TO WE STEAMSHIP OHIO. Higly Interesting and fGrapUic Account of her Passage. OUR NORFOLK COEKK8PONDKNCK. NoaroLi, Dee. 30 1850. The steamship Ohio of New York, hi* jn*t anohored In this harbor. In the few moments of lelsato afforded me, I bwtoa to give yon a short account or the disaster! o? board cf her, which hare befallen ua elnoe leaving Havana. On Wednesday morning our steam was up aachixrs wel|hed. and all the passengers, consisting of More than 800 In number, antious to start lor Mow fork: among them were lomt ladles from New Orleans and Havana. The steamer had proceeded a lew yards on her way naiiu uTcr iu? wuoie tmmi, ae though striking against mot heavy substanos In the water. A? once the engines w?re stopped, for an aooiJent htiMwrita Something had broken about the machines?. ud. on examination, It proved to be the bursting ofa cylinder head of the (larboard engine, which reads red It naeleaa until repaired It rwquirad several hears for the cooling of the water and meta before the extent of the damage oould ha ascertained; bnt when the exact state of affairs waa known, It wu pronounced Impossible to repair the damtged engine before retching New Tork The larboard engine, there" Tore, we* oily serviceable for the voyage. Captain ichenok however, after mature consultation and releetion. determined to proceed to tea. although antlcl gating a longer passage, asone half the power of the machinery wu loet. lie consequently made every preparation to meet the probable emergencies. On Thursday, the 10th Inst., we again weighed an ?hor, with suine hopes and many forebodings, for the first two days our speed waa good, but on the third somewhat dimialehtd. As jet no aecident had occurred, the tea waa tranquil, the skiea serene, and no Indications of a change On rianday evening, the wind irethened frcm the southeast, and before the next morning. a tremendous storm blew from tha ' -sorthwee-t. It haa never been my misfortune to wit. ntsaatsia one of greater violence. The vessel reeled before the blast, and was toss eU like a feather on tha mountain waves. At this alma. It waa found impossible to proceed, as the engine stopped and the veesel " broached to.'' Duricg daylight on Monday, we lay to. But what a change had coma over every object on board ! As th , ttorm rose, the steamer felt Its effects, and with each (uocassive roll articles were heard falling with a crash and noUe an usual even In sailing vessels. The (ablas and ctal: s In tha long dining salooa came together with a rear that left no doubt of their utter dam lltlon. N??t a crash followed of glass and diihe*; ana jart and jalliaa, trolt and other delicacies, in the pantry, mingled their sweets with the general confusion. In the social hall, no better fata awaited Ita Inmates In the bar, kept for the Accommodation of the passengers tha maibla slab did from ita locality, tha decanters, bottles, glasses, aardiala. ll.juorn, *9, started from their p ace* and tha whola were strewed upon tha floor in ona common rnln. In tha kitchen, a heavy bar bad fallen opon tha roof, eruahtng It In, through which tha watar poured. On dtck, tha waves daahed thair foams, and tha ipara ware white with tha aaline *pray,a* in a hoar freat. When morning cane, the seen* was frightful to . many and (loamy to all. The tire* between decks, ex - oept at the rngine, were extinguished. Nothing warm to eat or to drink was to be had. for thi kitchen wai In water; no tabla could be used, for the piece* ware upon the floor; and, withal, no dishes or other fragile war* remained. It wai importable to walk ar even stand upon deck, and equally Impossible to ait elsawhrre without holding on to some fixture. Vor tha snost part, the paseengers remained In their bertha, hut it wan diflleult U retain poaeeaalon of them in the rolling of the vessel. In the laloon. the ladiaa, In terjor and in drspair, had collected to receive whatever consolation and comfort the furro unding circumstances aflirded. But with cTery larch they wera thrown tram tha eofaa ot If they clung te th?m, It wm at tha riak of ft disiooated hand or arm.

Mall Steamer Ohio afrived at Norfolk yeaterday after a moat perlloua voyage, from Havana Oa leaving that port, laat Wedneaday week, aa aoeident happened to her machinery, whloa detained her a day In tne harbor, whence ahe departed on Thureday. with the perfect use of only one of her eaginoo. She waa full of paaeengera, and among them waa the Hon. Kevordy Jobneon and a number of other gentlemen well kaowa In the country. On quitting tbe port of Ilavaaa it waa eoon noticed by thoao akllled in marine life, that the Ohio wae but r?rv>a >v>uuiiiuini 111! riinui a wmierapproach to our Northern shore*. Her singlo oytrtiiti engine was. in all likelihood. unequal to the task of encountering the vioWnt tormi along those counts, and her frail ma.Hta and light salt* could afford but slender protection il the were forced to - lay to," or 1( her engine praved useless on a lee ehore or in tha open eea. However. *11 wrnt fairly and prosperously until ia*t Sunday night, when the breexe, which had all day been freshening, rote to a violent gale. In the midJt of which the engine stopped on ita centre, and the chip broached to in the midst of the tremendous re* that bad been already raited by the violent wind. Skilful seamanship Immediately rescued her for the moment, but from that hour until the morning of the 36th December. the Ohio was forced to " lay to" nnder tha tcantest Mil, and to bear the brunt of the hurricane. Her immense die made her unmanageable by aan aa. She lay like a log in the trough of the sea. rolling between the walia of the wave* that towered on either lide of her, aAd threatened her immediate destruction. tad aa wa? the plight of the gallant ship from thaaa events. eh* waa destined to encounter anether danger on Tneeday morning, it waa announced that she had eprang a leak, and that the rising water hat extinguished the fires beneath the boilera. This dreadful announcement at once aroused the energies of the passenger*, who manfully organised In bauds, under tha charge of Qeueral Benjamin 0. Howard, of Baltimore, ana from that moment until (he passed Cape Henry, the Ohio wm, under 1'retidtnoo, freed br their incessant, but patient labors, together with these of the offloer* and orew. an 1 enabled to recover the uae of Tit eugln?< Inc'o the morning ot the 26th. This la but a brief and hasty summary of tbe danger* enconnti i by this noble ship, and is Intended only as introductory to the following correspondence betwoon the paaerngers and our gallant friend. Captain J. V. Bchenck. ot the U 8 Navy, who command* her. There were several lady paaeengar* on board the Ohio, but, throughout the perils their nobl? fortitude noouraged and nerved all who were In a condition to labor for the ve?*el'* safety. To I/ici :t.
