COLLISION ari WEKW TWO STEAMERS.
A collision between two steamers, with great lose of life, occurred near Harwich on Sunday morning, about ten o'clock. The passenger steamer, C. M. Palmer (Captain Cay), of Newcastle, bound from Newcastle to London, with about 60 persons on board, was proceed-lng up Channel, when another steamer, the Ludworth (Captain Meldrum), ran into and sunk her within ten minutes. The latter vessel was in ballast, bound from London to Hartlepool. The collision took place close to the north-east Bawdmey buoy at 25 minutes after nine o'clock, and is attributed to what is termed a local fog—that is, which affected one vessel, but not the other. The C. M. Palmer, which had been steaming through fog, sighted the Bawdsey buoy directly ahead about the same time tha Lndworth appeared in view Both vessels were at the time nearly end on. The krmef veesel. In byfhg to keepclemr of the buoy, starboarded her helm; she swung abroadaide to the Other. The engines of the Ludworth were immediately stopped, but she had so much way on her that hefore anythmg elee could be done, she struck the O. M. Palmer amidships, Tho captain of the Ludworth / immediately ordervd hie two boats lo be lowered, which was dome wilhou* auy coofuefou, although the coo-eleru^ m: kwd ye gn,L Thirty-ona weHi picked im by Item, and 13 who srere etruggling iutha water alongside the ship were hauled on board by means of ropes thrown to them. Another screw steamer, tho Resolute, of Goole, came steaming within a hundred yarde of tha catastrophe, but although every attempt waa made lo call her attention, aha pmseed on without rendering any aeeislance whatever. Another "bamer, the Henry Martin, then hove In eight about 800 yarde og. and, atbacted by t*e ebouta raised on board the Ludworth, she immediately turned out of hercourea and bora down upon them. By the time die reached her, however, the boats of tha Lndwosth had picked up those who were floating, so that her "ervmse were not browht into reqmdtion In eavlng life, but as it was then doubtful whether the Ludworth waa not eoaenously Injured as to causa hev to sink the
