On the contrary, tho sad story of sea dis asters incident to this month of fearful hurricane; and rtorrn*, of sleet and saow and the Intense col J, mat added so greatly to tho sufferings of the sbipwreefcod, can never bo fully written. Many snips and whole crews went to tho bottom of the sea la those storms, with no survivors to tell tbo tale. The lut agonizing shrieks cf tbe lost rose above tbo wild shrieks of the storm, and fainter and fainter still died away amid the roar and frcnay of the conflicting wave*. Happily tbo arows of veb?ela supposed to have boen lost are from time to time being heard from as saved and picked up by passing vessels. Once reeciied they are kindly treated and no pain.? nor expense sparei for their comfort and to get tbum bome agaiu ; but no written dosor ption can begin to porirny tbo tiiais, sufferings and hardships ilify underwent beioro ili lr rcrcue. Harely a more thrilling narrntivo ot shipwreck and Buffering at =ea is reritod than that given by Cnpuin Spurting, of tbo schooner M. K Vsiluiu, who, with urn crew, remained twenty tl.reo d >y* on his vessel after *Ue was completely wreck J and disabled before a i.Mauoecatne to him. Ho, with two of bis won, have just arrived hero on the i< Sttluna, which brought them from Bermuda, where they bad kcou taken by the Eogllah abipSod budg whlc'i roxued them. The scl.oionor It F. Varnum, a staunch sed reliable cra.\ which hod only kosu two years of sea service, left Buck port, Oniric, December 28, with an assorted cargo, f >r I'on-Hoo'a, Florida, ller captain bad followed iho eea lor many years, licr crew wore a picked body of young but experienced nnd hardy men, aud the ve.<;?el whs the prinain Joy of a!l of them?a firmly tttsted rafegnard against almost any storm at f? u Her voyage opened wltb a steady northerly breeze, but her sails oniy Cued tbo better nnd she skimmed over tho waves only tbe moro lustily. Tbe breer.o strengthened nnd tho northwest gale of January 0 burnt upon thorn In all Its fury. Tbe veesel was then off Caps :>.ay. Gallantly she struggled, but at one A. M., amid a bliuding *iiow storm, away went her foremost. It snapped off about four feet above tbo deck, as clean and rmi oth S3 tbo breaking of a pipo stem, and with sail acd ppord went bounding into the ten, not so much a.s gtiuing the bulwarks. It was but a moment's work to cut tho ropes and let it go clear of tho ship, no that It should not punch a hole into her side or bottom, and eudanger siukiug her. But there was ono ir.:mlarid her jibs left. With these *ho continued to weather tho storm?which, It will bo remembered, instead of abating .new uioro furious?and under the circumstances suc ceeded admirably. Captain Bpurlmg beiiovod be could make llcrutuda. for thirteen days no vessel wimspoKeu. On January 10, the schooner R T. Fisk, from Easiport, Me., for Cardenas, cotno noar and offered to lay by and take off the crew aa soon as tbo weather moderated. This humane promise Captain Bpurling, though fully appreciating it, did not think it best to accept, as he still had :'a;ih bo could savo his vessel and cargo and bring them safely into port. On th.i suc ceeding day I e also spoke tbe brig Kate Blewnrt, from Philadelphia for Itlo Janeiro, the captain of which repeated the Fame liberal offer, which llUeyriso wa.1 declined. At this lim > tbo storm had some what lulled, but It soon broke oat with p^omlngly redoubled fury. Theio was no lot up. The storm continued day and night. On the 234 another disaster befell the vessel? the Iocs of the mainmast, lor which the loss of the fore mast paved tbe way. through slackening ot t!io head stays. Not daring to trust this mast un ler much -ail on this account, the captain at this tlmo was sailing w ith oniy a jib, and using bis main throat and peak halliurds as t>ta.vs to support the mainmast. The force of tho hur ricane may bs imaginod from the carrying away of this most witli no Mil oa her. After Io.' Iuk this fccond mut tbo vestiel became ton limes mors disabled than before. Her upper works aero now great.y damaged, tho wrrenohlag of the tru?.st at llie bottom had sot her leaking, ber rudder bad becomo dis abled by tl.e heavy sea.!, and she waa an uMor and hojio Iom wreck. All that oo.ild be dono waa to let her drift, work at the pnmpe to keep her rrom kinUnjr, and, with sign its of di*tres* flying, keop an incessant look out for pa.-?.ng vessels. It continued bitterly cold, which made the incoses nt working at the pomps terrrbly severe. B;.t Uio crew did their work most uncomplalnlu^ly. Tho captain took hold of the pumpa with thorn. It was a work lor life or death, and all saw it and knew It. Who can describe those days and nights of toil, suffering end inxiety, Tfaore waa nd Bleep nor rtat for any.
