THE TERRIBLE DISASTER OPT THE

THE rOOiiDERlSQ OF: TUR ElAiTICE.
Sunday's snowstorm will bo over paiqfully memo-, nolo from tho occurrence of a catastrophe unparallelod la tho British navy since tho Captain foundered off the Spanish coast in a summer gale in 1870. An accident of the same character, only leas fatal because tho number of tho ill-fated crew was not quite so large as that of the Captain, occurred on Sunday afternoon off Dunnose, the last headland in the Islo of Wight which tho doomed vessel would have had to pass before reaching a secure havan. Her Majesty's ship Eurydice, one of the training ahipa in which young seamen are prepared for active duties afloat, and which had just returned from a winter's cruise to tho West Indies with a crew of some 260 ordinary seamen and boy, was struck by a sudden equall of most furious character, capsized, and sunk with such rapid!* that, with t*o nceptbae, (here aceme w M**on to dosbt that every soul on board ham p*i#h*L 8ofarw*sb«mmo«*alaedth#%arydic* wampaaming up Channel and was off Vontnor about 3.30 p.m. Tho morning waa comparatively warm, and the breeze from the W to NW which blew during that timo was not br any means remarkable for strength, the only siira of change being the steady fall of tho barometer, which had been continuing for tho previous thirty-six or forty-eight hour*. In the afternoon, between two and three o'clock, the weather changed completely. There was a sudden rise of the wind, which shifted to the north, .and blow for a short timo almost with the force of a hurricane, and then followed a heavy fall of snow, which waa not, however, of very long duration. These wore the.phenomena observed in tho metropolis, constituting the end of a snowstorm, which was much more serious In tho north of England and Scotland. Passing over tho metropolis, the storm travelled to the southwards across Surrey, Sussex, and Hampshire, characterised by exactly the same peculiarities. There was a furious blast of wind, assuming tho character in place* of a whirlwind, then the heavy anowfall, followed toon by comparatively fine weather. As tho storm passed out to sea the unfortunate Eurydic* sterns to have encountered its full force, modified in direction and intensity by the high latad of the Isle of Wight Standing cm towards Spitheed under a press of canvas, what .occurred must be to some extent a matter of surmise, for it is doubtful whether the two survivor*, Cnddiford and Fletcher, both of whom are only seamen—the first an A.B., is it true, but the other only a first-class boy—can givs all the details necessary to form an accurate judgment. What, however, appears to have happened is this While sailing along with & pleasant breeze, with all on board, no doubt, congratulating themselves on a speedy meeting with their friends, the furious squall, too atant touritr of tho snowstorm, suddenly burst down over the high downs on their weather beam, and before sail could be shortened the hurricane struck (fortunate ship, and veering on tho north rounds towards tho eastward filled tho canvas and bore hex over on her starboard broadside so promptly that nothing could bo done to got tho canvas off hor before she was on her beam ends. As the weather had been very ^ no up to tho moment of the accident, all tho ports were open, and as tho fury of the wind prevented the vessel righting, she soon filled and went down. Tho affair was so suddon that a largo majority of those on board were drowned between decks. During tho squall and tho subsequent fall of snow tho wcathei was so thick to leeward that what had ha; ' not observed from tho shore. Tho near was that of a passing schooner, forh**elfjd**not appear to have encountered the force of tho wind #o severely ms the Eurydice; hot tho hands on board this littlo craft saw nothing during the continuation of the squall. When it had somewhat passed over the crew saw some wreckage floating near by, and the master having sent a look-out man aloft mado out one of the few survivor* of the Eury-dico's crew floating on a life-bnoy. He at once turned the schooner's head in "the direction of tho man, and as he came close by saw other unfortunates floating near by. They lowered their own boat as speedily,as possible, and pickod up five, and it was only when they found there were no other victims in sight and some of those whom they had saved were found to be dying that tho flag was hoisted which brought aid from the shore. Directly after the squall had cleared off observers at Vontnor saw wreckage drifting to the westward with the ebb, and saw the schooner hove to with her boat lowered. There was immense excitement in Vcntnor when the sad truth became known, and many stories were current, probably without having any very reliable foundation, of cries having been heard to seaward during the evening and night. The survivors were not in the water an hour; but the exposure proved fatal to three, and those who are happily living had a very narrow escape. It is needless to say that the two seamen who are still alive received every possible aid at Ventnor and, thanks to tho judicious treatment they received, they so far recovered that they were able to bo taken to Portsmouth. On their arrival they were taken to the residence of tho Port Admiral, Admiral E. G. Fan-shawe, O.B., in whoso presence their statements were taken down and forwarded to the Admiralty, the men being then removed to Haslar Hospital for further treatment.
THE INQUEST AT VENTMOR.
The inqu*»t upon the bodies of Lientenant Franci* Hop* Tabor, Captain Louis Ferri*r, R. E., and Bennett, ordinary seamen, was held on Tueiday afternoon by Mr. F. Blake, coroner, who commenced the proceeding* au the Queen'* Hotel, Esplanade, Ventnor. The bodies were iti^a little outhouoe near the hotei. and had already been coffined. The white cloth* With which the bodies had been covered were sprinkled with beautiful flower*. A* town a* the coroner, jury, and reprenenta. lives of the Press had assembled at the Queen's Hotel, it was at once perceived that the room placed at their disposal was a giaat deal too small, and the Coroner asked If a lar.er room could be procured. The Free, masons' Tavern was st first suggested, but eventually the proprietor of the RoysJ Hotel offered the u«e of , larger room there, and after the juiy (of whom Mr. \V. M. Judd was foreman) had been sworn, and with the Coroner, bsd viewed the bodies, they adjourned to the Royal Hotel.
In opening the proceedings, the Coroner said he could not forbesr expressing his deep concern (which he Wa* sure everybody must share) at the cause which had called them together — an accident which had retulted in the los* of a ship and so many ^valuable lives, when they had almost arrived at their destination. This wss a most important enquiry, for though the present inquest wsr nominslly only as to the death of three persons, a hundered time* thst number had died from the same accident. He asked 'hem to plvs the evidence their best attention.
Tho first witness called was—
Robert Montague Tabor wai ths first witnei*. He deposed ; I live at Cashalton, Surrey. I have seen tl*e bodies which have l>een viewed by the jury. One of them is that of my brother, Francis Hop) Tabor. He was a first lieutenant in the 'loyal Navy, I last Saw liltn alive about ise or six months sgo in Kent. He h«s since leen in the West Indies, and w«a on his wmy borne. He was first lieutenant on board the Hurydice. and we expected him home daily until we heard of the eatas-trophe. I think lie would hare been 30 in Juiy.
Benjamin Cuddeford, the eldest of t'.eftwo surviving meitbrrs of the crew of the Eurydice, denoted : I am «n able Marten. I have eeen the bodies which hare been viewed by the jury, and am able to Identify tl.cio. One it that of Lieut, labor, another that of a ro-in namrd Hennott, but 1 cannot tell his Christian name, as there were two Bepneu's, and the other was thai of Captain Feriier ; at least, i think so, but I do not know for certain. Lieutenant Tabor was first lieutenant of the Eurydice, and I was employed as able seiuian oo bo*rd that vessel. Bennett w.s captain of i e q .arter deck. Captalh Perrter, of the Royal Engineers, was at ths time only taking a pas««*e . home. The Jturydlce was a wooden sailing ship, with fwqr guns. She hi* been employed at % training ship, and has been in commission about thirteen ninths. She has b'cen all rouryj the W«si.India Islands, and I was on b«»ard of her the whole of .(bat peri

When 1 jumped overboard the Capiain was still on the vessel, wbkh stent down immediately after 1 jumped off. The captain with her. Some of the men who were in the water called me by name, and I helped them by paeeing to them spare from the ship. I saw a boat with six men on the bottom of it. They ssked msfor assistance, and I told them the beet thing that they could do was to keep their spirits up, ons of these men was named Ma sen, snd another, Martin, another was a oookl mate we were bringing home ; the other three were ord nary seamen, but I don't know their names, i saw ai boatswain named Mr. Brewer, with a lifebuoy. Hs was instructor of ths ordinary seamen. I believe the oook's mate I saw on the boat was left behind from the Tamar. The man named Fletcher was near me, and we kept on swimming till we saw land, and ws made for IL I suppose we were swimming about for an boor and twenty minutes. Ws were then picked up by a schcotter. Aa ordinary seamen, was also picked up. I did not see any of the other bodies picked op. As soon as I got on board the schooner I felt rather giddy and staggered. I was perfectly sensible when 1 wss picked up.
By a juror: It came on to blew about half-past three, but k was not snowing at the time. At the time when the vessel was struck by the squall—betweta half.past three and four—a enow storm came on. We were not tackles at the time, as the wind was abaft the beam. We had no warning, and could not see that the storm wae coming on, as we were going at the rate of about eight or nine knote an hour. The porta were open oa each aide. When the equall came on sublieutenant the Hon. Giffard went to the weather wheel, and there were five mem at the wheel at the time, aad the helm wae put up just as the captain gave orders to take in the msin sheet. The five men were doing their best to try to put the helm up, but I can't tell whether or no they did it. Before the ship turned over the ports were b«tween four and five feet above the water, but *he waa inclining over to starboard in consequsaee of the stiff breeze j when on her even keel the ports stood four or five feet above water.
By the Ceroner: At the time when the order was given to take in the sail I had just corns up from bslow. there wa* one watch below, about 150 I *hould think. Some of them were lyiag down asleep and others were engaged writing. I can', say whether the men below tried to come up When the captain eaw the squall coming be gave orders to shorten sail. I could not tell how long it was from the time the squall commenced to the time he jumped overboard. I did not know where we were at the time. Tho officer of the watch was Sal» lieutenant Randolph. The captain was giving orders, but Lieutenant Randolph was superintending the taking in of the sails.
By a juror: There was no time to lower her boats. As she neeled over she took her starboard beat away at once. The captain was en deck during the whole time the weather looked dirty. There was a life-buoy on eaeh side of the bridge with the ship's name on them, one on eaeh side of the bow, and one astern; and there were about 12 life-belts. These belts had been brought on deck for painting, or they would h#re been below. They were in the launche*, and one each for the men of the life-host. Mr. Bremer hid a cork belt The llfe-kuoye were hung at the side of the ship, and floatsd when she turned ever.
By Mr. Harvey: Immediately the captain saw the squall coming he ordered the etun'sail to be taken in. Tfce stun'saii was the largest sail in the ship. The men were In the act of lowering the royals. The cap. tain gave the order to the men who were taking down the royals, " Let go the msin topsail halliards, and th* main sheet." They were in the act of going to de that when the men were ordered to come down. The wss afraid ths topgallant mast and reyal mast would be carried awsy. ana that the " " " '
I think ths captain's object »
lives would be lost.
When the squall cam* the ship went on her beam ends at once, and went down altogether in about five minutes. It was a sudden gust that came upon without giving any warning. As oae of the shi company I did not expect any such thing would ti place. I aw the captain standing, on the side of shin sftsr she heeled over. I think everything l could have been done was done, both by the capuin stfd the men to save the livee of those on board. We got into a squall in the Bay of Biscs as we went out, and she tehaved very well then. 1 don't know how long the captain was on deck that afternoon, but both he an,d Lieutenant Tabor were on deck all the time I was there. As sn abls seaman I consider there was ao fault in the captain and officers, who I consider were thorough seamen. I have been in the nav neatly 21 years, and during the whole ef that period have never been in a squall that came on so suddenly. The rule ef the service is that Sunday Is a quiet day, and when the work is done we are piped down, if It fine weather. I consider 150 hands were enougli save the vessel if we had had time, but we had time whatever. If she had been braced up it would have taken more hands than when she was running free,, as on Sunday last. The csptain gave his orders very nromply and quickly. If the whele ship's company had been on deck I think they would have been in one soother's wav, and ceuld not have saved the ship. I don't think there is the i*ast blame attached to anyone.

Last Sunday 1 wss getting my tsa to come on deck at eight bells, when 1 heard a rush of water, coming in through the porta. Just before I heard the rush of water the ship had given a lurch ; that waa immediately before I heard the water. I quickly lowered the half port and ran on deck. The water was then coming in over her lee netting. I as Isted another man in overhauling tie fore topsail halliards. I got'over the weather netting, and walked right aft on the quarter. The ship was on her side at the time and I walked below her ports. 1 could see the keel of the ship out of the water. It was blowing hard and snowing at the time. I believe the main, yard was then touching the water. I saw the Captain standing on the quarters, and heard him giving orders to clear the cutter. They cut the foremost gripe, out could not cut the aft ene, because there wss not time before the ship sank. I picked up a life belt, and got from the ehip about 30 yards, t jumped off the ship. I
could not do much at swimming th - *—---- ---

wss about three or four miles from land. Cuddsford and Fletcher took a little coffee, but the othere coul& not take anything. A boat came off. and I sent them ashore for a doctor. Two came. I don't think the three deceased men were alive when the doctors came. I think the able seaman Bennett was dead when we picked him op. He and the other ofieer died before they were taken from the schooner. I^bould not have thought ths squall would have been sufficiently violent to capeize such a ship as the Eorydice, even If she wae under full saiL 1 thought it was a boat's crew when I picked the men op. My schooner Is 137 tone register, and the crew consists of six bands, all told. She was
bt cargo of coal.
_ . ^called a coastguard,msn named John
Flynn. stationed at Ventnor. He said : I have known the Isle at Wight aevea years. I remember a squall which paeeed over Cowee about two years ago, and 1 produce photographs showing how partial that storm was. In one photograph Is shown the Globe Hotel, completely wrecksd, while a house eloee was perfectly intact— both bouses b*iag almost as eloee aa if In one building. That was on September 28th, 1876. Anothtr photograph showed that In a cops* a tree wae cut aa if with a knife, while the trees on either side were not touched. I have been in gales of wind when one vessel has been struck, snd snothsr not far off left untouched. In the China I have seen jpnks blown right over, and the others only slightly touched.
The Foreman of the jury expressed satisfaction at the amount of evidence which had been produced, and thought the whole of the jury would be perfectly satisfied with It.
Ths Coroner said the question in this case was whether the parties who were responsible for the safety of thi* vessel did or did not observe that care and precaution and (kill which it was imperative upon them to exerciie on this occasion. It seemed to him that the quattion for the jury to consider was to what the capsizing of this unfortunate veessl was owing—whether it wa* to her carrying too much sail; and, if not, whether there was sufficient promptitude on the part of the commander in lowering the sails when the storm was coming upon him. Another consideration was whether It might have been due In any measure to any want of sufficient ballast. The only witness who could give them any material evidence wae the man Cuddeford. He, howeVer, did not appear in his evidence to suggest thst there wss any danger in the amount of sail this vessel wae carrying before she was struck. He said that there w»s a moderate breeze, that the weather wss Ine, and that be did not observe whether there was any storm approaching or not. He told the jury that the captain was on the quarter deck, thet he ordered the royals and other sails to be taken in, but that the veaael heeled over and sank in a very few minutes. Very material evidence was given by the seaman on board the Brums. He said he observed the Eorydice coming towards them ; the breeze was moderate, and be did not observe anything dangerous or unuiual In the quantity of eail wh'cb the Eurydice was carrying. He did not see her afterwards, bat was prevented from doing so by ths blinding snow. Then, did the csptaia use all promptitude and care in giving his order*, and were they obeyed as they should be in taking down the sail when the storm came on ! If tbsy believed the evidence—and there wa* no r***on to doubt it- the Captain was on the deck, and he exerclied great promptitude so far as the time would allow frAm the moment the sterm arose ; he remained on the vowel till aha wei.t down, and nothing more waa known of him. Then came the question—was the ves«el capsized by the ffT«?- of this storm, snl If she was w„s It in conse-qtk -co of her having too much e*ll ! If eo, was evsry-thing done as quickly as it could have been done for the purpoee of shortening sail ! Tho evidence went to show that that was so. If that wa, the case there was no blame attached to any person. One reason why the csp-tain did not obeerve the storm approaching had been explained by the master of the schooner Emma. He thought ths storm would not be likely to be seen a, soon by the captain on board the Eurydice as by those on board the schooner, as that veesel was nearer the land, and he said it was not unusual for storms of this description to act with greater force on one object than another even though they might not be far apart The queatioo wss whether there was any person or persons who were to blame in this matter. If tbey were of opinion that there was no f-ult on the part of the csptain. and if they were satisfied that this disaster was not due In any way to any imperfect supply of ballast, hs thought they eould only arrive at the conclusion that this was an aeci-dental circumstance. There was one circumstance, however, which appeared at first sight to suggest itself, and that was that a considerable number of the crew constituting the watch were below at the time ; but they were told that it was usual to be piped down on Sundays after the work was done. And the wltnes, said he believed there were quite enough on deck to do all that was required to be done, and that if there had been more to execute the orders of the captain they would have been in each other'e way ; so that nothing seemed to arise from that. He should therefore leave the jury to consider the decison which they thought proper to arrive
THE TEEDICT.
At the suggestion of the Coroner, the jury retired to consider their verdict, snd returned Wter an absence of. about half an hour.
The Coroner : Are you agreed on your verdict ?
Mr. Judd (the foreman) said : Wo are, sir. The jury unanimously find that Louis J. C. Ferrier, Francis Hope Tabor, and —. Bennett, were accidentally drowned owing to the capsizing of H.M.S. Eurydice by a sudden squall off Dunno.e, on Sunday, the 24th Inst, and the jury consider thst the evidence adduced no blame from whatever can be attached to the captain, officers, or men of the ship.
Up to the time of going to prew we have not heard of any other bodies being recovered. Mrs. Tabor, tne widow of the deceased lieutenant, was at Ventnor during tbs inquiry, but it was oonsidored judicious not to require her to go through the painful ordeal of giving ing that the officer e brother was pretent. Captain Ferrier. we understand. Is to be removed to Scotland for Interment. During the day some thousands of people made pilgrimage* to tho cliff, and landslip between Ventnor and Shankl.n lo indulge in a sight of th* soene of the foundered Eurydice, who,e top gallants could bs seen above tho surface of the
one of the vessels proposed to be used in raising the the wreck, has been found to be unsuitable for that purpose, and the Pearl has been substituted.
