The Loss of the Ship Black Hawk. We stated yesterday that the ship Currituik, of Norfolk, arrived at New York on Wednesday with a portion ef the passengers and crew of the clipper ship Black Hawk, lost at sea on her voyage from Liverpool for New York. The Black Hawk lef Liverpool on the 4th of April, with a crew of 35 men and 853 passengers. She encountered a tremendous hurricane on April 17th, in lat- 43 2J, Ion. 3G 02, which carried away every mast close to the deck, stove the cabin, and ripped the deck in such a manner that the wattr flowed in like a mill race, and soon the ship had six feet of water, in her hold. , On the morning of the 19th the British barque Caroline, of Liverpool, hove in sight, and took on board 140 passengers. Next morning the ship .Dirigo came alongside, and on Friday evening the Currituck came up, and the boats of all the vessels were soon employed in getting off the remainder of the passengers and crew, which was accomplished without the loss of a single individual The Black Hawk was then abandoned, with her lower hold half full of water, and the ship a complete wreck. She was valued at $100,-000. The Currituck brought to New York 356 of her passengers, and her crew.
