STATEMENT OF MB. W. PORTER FINLAY.
Savannah, Jan. 14, 1866-
IB To the Editor of the Herald:
There are no catastrophes so appalling to
*• the mind as ships at sea on fire. Death on
M ship-board, most repulsive to frail humanity,
■ presents itself in forms apparently inevita-
r f file, and many a brave soldier, who, on the
■ battle field, would unflinchingly face the
S deadliest storm of grape and canister, and
B who has
* '-Sought the bubble reputation
- Even iu the cannon's mouth,”
3 shriuks appalled at the awful certainty so
B fearfully confronting him. It has been well
said, that a man who has never stood in the
ranks, in the awful stillness which precedes
ike opening roar of the artillery on a morn-
; of a battle, has not experienced all that
he i9 capable of feeling. I have been on
many a field ; 1 have felt that painful anx
iety so far different from fear; but there re
mained to be experienced a more intense
sensation. At this moment, the event is so
recent that even yet we can scarcely compre
hend the full magnitude ot the scenes
through which we have passed, and ourdread-
»£d adventure does not strike that terror
we reflect on the event of January the 9th,
18C6. To those who were on board the Asher
Ayres on that eventful day, January 9th will
be one of those days to be'remembered to the
close of their existence.
Up till the moment of the destruction of
our unfortunate vessel all had gone on well.
The passengers enjoyed the trip; the Cap
tain and the clerk were all that could be de
sired. We were becoming accustomed, to
each Other’s society. Nothing was antici
pated but a pleasant end to a pleasant trip.
The scenery was not picturesque; but every
one was disposed to be agreeable and make
the passage sociable. A different end was
soon to come from that, and so certainly an-
fcAlready various engagements bad been made
for various parties ot amusement lnoavan-
nah and New York. On the morniog of
January tbe 9ib we were all on deck, or
rather on tbe cotton bales, for the boat was
loaded to tlie level of tlie roof of thecabin.
Tbt day was clear, though rather cold, but
still warm enough to be agreeable in the
open air. Our three iady passengers were
silting, engaged in conversation with some
of their friends; the gentlemeu-were reading
and lounging around. The boat had haply
passed tlie dangerous “Dick Swift,” the
shoals and narrows ot the Ocmulgee, and
had entered the broad, swift Altamalia, down
which, iu all our fancied security, we were
speeding rapidly. But between twelve
and oue o'clock, when opposite Town Bluff,
there is heard in those trumpet tones
which surely tell ot impending danger, ‘Capt.
Taylor! Cotton on tire ”! No iusd is dismayed;
the ladies remain quiet; but au immediate
rush is made by all, both passengers and
crew, Capt. Taylor, and Mr. Dacy, the Mate,
sent all the available hands to the point of
danger, the stern, where the cotton bales had
ignited from a spark from the furnace. The
pumps are rigged, the donkey engine turned
to work, buckets of water passed ; but all iu
vain. It is as easy to extinguish a vol-
canoe as a cotton boat, once on fire. All
efforts to throw tlie cotton over fail.
Tbe fire flashes forward like a train of
powder ignited. At last an effort is made to
bead the boat to the 9hore, but a whole sea
of rolling flame sweeping with hurricane
speed over guards, people, cabin, and pilot
house, drive the pilot from tbe wheel, the
eugiueers from the engines. One engine,
the starboard, is stopped; tbe other continues
working. The wind, then blowing up stream,
had hitherto carried the mass of flame alt
and over the stern rather than forward, but
the port wheel now only working brings her
head up stream, and in a second, iu a space
of time inconceivably short, the “Asher
Ayres” was such a mass of floating
flame as I trust has been rarely seen.
And then arose lrom earth to sky that fear
ful shriek only to be heard iu those times
when man is helpless land bids farewell to
hope) and God alone can afford succor.
Some few contrive to throw over some cot
ton bales, aud on these some jump, float
down stream and succeed iu catching hold
of boughs arid climbiug into the trees on the
overflowed banks of the river, where the
water is still more than twelve feel deep.—
For the larger number r not so fortunate with
the surgiug sea of fire behind, a deep tide
swift river in front, prefer the water to the
flame, and plunge madly into . the pitiless
stream. By the mercy of Providence alone,
all succeed in gaining at least a hold of the
overhanging boughs. By the exeition of
some of the men, by the grace of God iu all
cases, tbe lady passengers are brought at
leti9i to where they can grasp a limb. But
the shore is still two hundred yards distant,
a deep swift cuirent separating the unfortu
nates perching in the boughs, immersed in
the water, and only sustaining themselves by
desperate exertion in clinging to trees
which they were unable to climb, chilled as
they were by tbe icy coldness of the water.
We got them ashore ou cotton balesn but,
when one thinks of tlie sight ol delicate
women iu deep water holding on to trees,
aud, with their piteous lonkB imploring aid
it was impossible to give, one shudders at tbe
mere recollection more than at the hideous
reality. However, all were saved but some
negroes; bow many of them were lo9t we
do not know. Oue Portugese lad was burned
alive. So far as is known, all other white
people are safe. Most of us have lost all our
baggage; for myself, I have nothing left but
One of the strangest peculiarities to one
sufficiently self possessed to observe the
shifting scenes in this dreadful drama, was
the difference shown in the main between
the white and the black people. The ago-
nising entreaties for mercy,the frantic prayers
generally utterly irrelevant; the wild shrieks
for hel p where no help could come ; all con
trasted strangely with the cool,quiet courage,
sell-reliant, self-sustaining of the superior
race. I have seen much of the differ
ent colored races of the world, and
have 6een them in positions calculated to de
velop strongly their constitutional courage.
That courage I have never seen equal to
the courage of the white man, but the in
feriority 1 have never seen more strongly
displayed than iu the burning of the Asher
Ayres. The cool determination and calm
resignation of the dominant race was never
more strongly contrasted with the utterly
childish fear and imbecility io peril of the in
ferior than on tbe bosom of the Altamaha.
After many a weary hour on limbs of trees,
we were got ashore. Tlie officers of tbe boat
stuck to her to tbe last; they are not to blame.
Whatever caused this strange calamity we
cannot tell. The Asher Ayres now lies
a wreck on tbe left bank of the Altamaha,
and cargo and boat are uo more. Our lives
are preserved by the help of God. The
strangest part of this eventful history is that
90 few were lost.
8o far has been told in plain unvarnished
terms, this tale of a most terrific passage in
the history of the steamboating of these
waters. There still remaius a portion
ol our unfortunate story more unpleasant to
all who sympathize with those in distress-
That portion of our crew, who imme
diately on the alarm ol fire, deserted the
ship, and, having secured the life boat,
left the steamboat, and made the landing,
instead of returning to the rescue of helpless
women and freezing men, who were beyond
the reach of other assistance, occupied them
selves in bursting open and plundering the
baggage of tbe perishing passengers, disre
garding all appeals for help, cooly stealing
that which the waters had thrown up from
the wreck- Three of these inhuman wretches
weie detected in the very act; one of them
was only saved from the just indignation of
the Captain, by the entreaties of those pres
ent. Gentlemen on the boat identified the
plunderers as belonging to the vessel. These
men fled; scarcely one trunk or valise
has been found unopened and unplun
dered ; thousands of dollars have been lost
by passengers. No one can precisely name tbe
parties, but those who were seen in the act of
bursting open valises can be identified will
eventually be found, aud will receive consid
erably less than their deserts. We will only
bang them. While actually in our sight, afloat
in the life-boat, within three hundred yards
of us, a good pair of oars in the boat, no one
to call away tbeir attention, these fellows
left us immersed in thfe water, enduring
agonies worse, because moie protracted,than
death, while busy stealing the floating bag-
^When, at length, we reached the dry
land, we found that the alarm had been
given, and Seaborn Hale and bis son Aus
tin were down on tbe banks ready to aid
those who so much required assistance, with
a wagon and team to convey them to his
house. There we went, and we were re
ceived with the utmost kindness. Mr- anc *
Mrs. Hale gave up their house to us, fed us,
supplied us with every thing they bad,
cent for all their expense and trouble. Mr.
Baily also took in a few and made
them as welcome as if they had been honored
aod invited guests. These two gentleman
furnished us a couple of teams, with which
we traveled to the railway at No. 7, and
from that point we came by the usaal route
to Savannah. Capt. Taylor and some five
or six others bad gone down previously in
the yawl to Doctortown, but did not reach
Savannah so soon as those who came over
Oue thing only remains to be said, and it
ought to be written in justice to those who
certainly deserve it. I do believe that no
blame can be attached to any of the officers
of the boat. One thing is however, cer
tain: in the time of danger every officer
stood to his post. I am afraid that both cot
ton and cargo are entirely gone ; there will
be but little hope of recovering anything
which may float down the stream.

BURNING OF THR. STE AMER JAS. G.
CHRISTOPHER, ON THE SAVANNAH
The steamer Jas. G. Christopher, running
between this city and Augusta, was burned
on Saturday morning last, about 7 o'clock,
when three miles above Martin’s Landing,
near Blanket Point. Tbe fire, when firet dis
covered, was issuing from the hold of the
steamer near IheTaoilers and among the cot
ton stored below deck. Every effort to stay
the progress ot tbe flames proved unavailing.
The “Jas. G. Christopher" was soon a total
loss, with but little, if any ot the cargo
saved. The crew lost all their personal ef
fects. The steamer Volunteer, which was
near the scene of the disaster, rendered
timely assistance in scuttliog the burning
steamer and taking off the crew.
The “Jas. Q. Christopher” was command
ed by Capt. James M. Moody, and this was
her third trip between Savannah and Au
gusta. She was laden with 222 bales of cot
ton, which had been taken off tbe disabled
steamer “R. II. May.” The engine and
boiler will probably be saved. Capt. Moody
arrived iu this city by the steamer Union,
and the crew by the steamer Volunteer.
The owners of the “Jas. G Christopher”
are Geo. T. Jackson, of Augusta, Claghoru
& Cunningham, Joseph M. Kinchley and
Capt. Taylor, of Savannah.
Shipwreck and Loss of Life on St.
John’s Bar, Florida.
[From our own Correspondent^
Febnanpina, Jan. 12, 186G.
The brig Neva, of Machia9, Me., Talbot,
master, from New York, bound to Jackson
ville, Fla., on Monday last, January 8lb,
went ashore on the South Breakers of St.
Johns Bar. After becoming fast on the bar,
she thumped heavily for some ten minutes,
losing her rudder. The vessel then worked
round to the southward, and sobn aftrwards
commenced to settle.
Preparations having been made, the lady
passenger and her child were put into the
boat, which had been successfully launched.
Tbe Captain, the first Mate, the Pilot and
two seamen, also got into the boat. The
boat had hardly cleared the side of tbe brig
when it wss swamped by a heavy sea, and
all in it perished.
Ttie second mate, two seamen and tbe
cook, who staled by the wreck were saved.
Tbe brig now lies on the beach twelve
miles south of the Bar.
The following are the names of those lost:
Captain Talbot, James Luttimer, Pilot;
Mrs. Wall and child : First Mate and two
seamen, names unkhown.
