The laat boat, the largoat ot the number, was not laonchod, when the laat party of whoso safety we are advised, left the rrck. All agree that ske waa a large aad erory ay capacious life boat.

The Fate of Mr. Clllaa Family. Tbe Commercial of laM evening contained , the folio in paragraph concerning the fate of tbe wife and daughter of K. K. Colliks, Esq ; Mooltbstaneipg tbe statements made by Mr. Ba.l- Ba.l- i, aecond officer, sod thetworeaecrd puatnrari, a IB la of Mrs. Colli m aod her family, aooas hop of tbeir caeape la still chenabed. Mr. I'ORI., tbird effleer, K4d Csotain Wt,T at Mr. Collixs' office, yesterday, yesterday, that during tbe trying seene he was perfeetly coal and collected, aod knew fully all that wi transpiring transpiring about biaa. He gi.es it aa hi. poiUre opinion that tbe lady and daughter of Mr. E. K. Colli! werr net tkt ftrt-H ftrt-H ftrt-H loit b the giving way of the tackle: that be is well convinred that Mm. Colli and daughter daughter were placed In a boat by Captain Luce bimvelf, and lhal aul o pvtktt from tke tkip long before the a'rov'BtBg of tbiwe npponed to have been the persona tllntfed to. Tbe boat was well provisioned, and the most cod (Men I hopes are entertained that the auflerers harebrea picked up. Thi boat must hare been the first rent from Ike abip. It had a cotnpaaa, water and proTitioa. f..r fuuiUea daya. and trtu under tkt ckurgt f air. Cot slat, the first vfiecr. It is qnite clear that the opinion expressed In the last paragraph is erroneous. Mr. Gourlay's boat was s-nt s-nt s-nt out to ascertain the condition of the propeller, and is not known or believed to have taken anybody on boaid but the seamen sent for that.pecial service. It is bareiy possible that the ladies earner) were not in the boat, tbe tackle o. which gave way, a'thoagh Ur. Baahlam, the second second officer, Bays rery Knively that they were. His sta-enaant, sta-enaant, sta-enaant, moreover, ace ma to be confirmed by the sutement of the fourth officer. Mask Grham, and by tbe passenKers landed ia Boston, who give additional details conct-rning conct-rning conct-rning that boat, which seem to leave little room for mistake. Tbe most explicit statement ia regard to the boats, is that of Capt. Gram, as follows : The Arctic ha six boats. Tbe fir.fboxl was lowered with toeehief mate, boatswain, and three man; this boat was lowered to ascertain the condition of the other steamer, and was loft behind when we found Wa were aiiiking ; ahe ia pronably naie. Tiro of Ibe qatrter boats were taken by tbe xesood and fourth officers snd crew ; another boat was taken by the eoftneera, and was auprlied with provisions, water, dee ; there were only eight or nine in this cost, and they would not par-mil par-mil par-mil any one else to coma on board, although the boat was nut foil. I beard that rcvol.era were threatened tobeaard on thia occasion. The, fourth qnarter-bsat qnarter-bsat qnarter-bsat was hauled alongside by Cspt. Ldcx, tbe third mate and mytelf. One of tke ship's quartermasters was plaasd In Charge ; into thi boat Capt. L,ucr plmne tome ladies, out kotcoasRi there vere, or vkn they were, I do avt Ar.cuj. Several of the genttcmen pas,CBra llien made a rush and junvcxl into tbe boat, and, as it was full, tbe painter was cut, aad the boat drifted astern. Eke had ears, bat I do set know whether praviatona or water. Tbe sixth boat waa oa the quarter dork, and after having launched over a lot of spam spars to c instruct instruct a rapt, we launched this boat for tbe purpose of aiding the construction. We too tbe oara ant of this boat, ao that tb-x-e tb-x-e tb-x-e tb-x-e tb-x-e w begot Into har should act desert us while laahing the raft. It seems olear from th; that some Mies were I placed by Captain l ca ia a boat, which Captiin 6am supposes to hive left the ship ; and as we ) have no account of tbe Captain's passing ladies : into more than one boat, Captain GaM, Mr. DoSiam and Mr. Baablar probably refer in their accounts to the sane boat. If any ladiea were lost by the upsetting of a boat, as is well esta-lisbrC, esta-lisbrC, esta-lisbrC, they were those placed in the foarth quarter bofU by Captain Lnca ; and this leaves very Little deubt that Mrs. and Miss Collins must have been among them. There is a discrepancy, moreover, in Mr. Dorian's reported stctemr-nta stctemr-nta stctemr-nta which throws doubt over his opinion. According to the Commercial, Mr. D. thinks that these ladies were placed in a boat " which pushed from the ahip long before the drowning of those who pemhed by the upaetting of the boat." Bo', his original statement, aa already published, is as follows : Mr. DiaiA.t routiadiets tbe at airmen t of the aecond mate, Mr Baaluam. iu I on pert to the fate ofXra. E. K Collins and family, as to whom it ia sail ifett they were in a boat, one of thctackJee of which gave way in tbe act of lowering, cauiog their precipitation Into the eca. Mr. Dobia.i did not know the personal appearance ; of Mr. Colliss family, but he rms mteast that mt the tune ar Uft the skip, three martles hefurs she sunk, the ' tctre Oscars'. lie bad just a .moment bofora ineairrd ' from Mr. Bn whether Mrs. C. was furnished with a life pieserver, and Mr. Dress informed him that he ' had placed one on tor. Therefore the ladies n horn Vr IUaliav preripimt'd out of the l-nu l-nu l-nu were ucrni. and Miss Colliks. If ibey 7erc on board the f Up only three mlnutea lc fore she went down, of course tuey could not have left her previous te the WfccUmg of the boat referred to. . Wo fear from these consider ltioas that there is very liule rcaeou to hope lor tbtur safety BIowralBji la Brooklyw.

The Ts-Mra Ts-Mra Ts-Mra after the Colliatoa. In regard to tne tliirty-ono tliirty-ono tliirty-ono pcrstons of the cm w of the tr-r;-. tr-r;-. tr-r;-. tr-r;-. tr-r;-. suid to have been picked u; by the propelk r Tena, we rreret to say that the story is a mistake. The passengers and crew on the two boats which U ft the steamer aad made .Bread Core, were at Newfoutdlmd with the Vesta, and several of the passengers talked with the Fiench captain and saw his vessel. He saved so one from the Arctic, but had one of his boats run down by her, while she was making the circuit round him after the accident. From the circumstance circumstance that Capt. Loce steamed round him. to give assistance, he supposed that the Arcttc was not serioua'j dainagro, and when she left him, his impression waa she had made directly for Ne ar- ar- l ork. Otherwise tbe ex fa could and wonld have remained by her. The bow of the Vcrfa was terrifically damaged ; indeed, literally stove ia, and leaving a rent of'thirty feet. But the compartment compartment or bulkhead saved her, and the French captain told our informant that Lis vessel coutd have lived four or five days, if necessary, before J putting into port for repairs. In other words, tu u ..v ... , uu ccrj svui on uoara the Arctic and lauded them safoly at Halifax or even Boston. That the Arctic steamed off in the western western direction, the- the- stalemrsits heretofore published concur, and that the Captaia ef the Vrrfa was thus put ovt of hearing of tne signal guns which she sib aeqnently fired, is cot unar countable". When tbe lost in which our infonuaxt was saved was launch ed from the Arctic, say about lj o'clock? P. nL, she was steaininj at the ra'e of six or seven knots. . The mistake telegraphed from Halifax ia regard to the thirty -one -one pertoos said to have been picked upty the Vest, no doutt originated is the fact that the SO or 31 persons of the crew and 15 passes. seis on Bjlalbax's boat were at Newfoundland with the YeUm.

Condition tf ike Men at Quarantine. Tbe condition of tbe two men, McCabe and Stinsow, who arc lying ill in the Hospital at the Seamen's Reteat, Staten Island, ia constvpenoe of injuries rect ived on the Arctic, is much im. proved. SiiNfcOM, tbe Officer' Stewaid, is now aide to leave his bed and converse freely with all w1k wish to receive from him any inform stiou. Many anxious persons visit the Retreat, solicitous to glean tifings of sorre frieid on board the ill fated vessel, and at the time our reporter viaiied tlenr, yesterday, there were very many persons in tbe sick ward awaiting a chance to propose to them some vital question.' McCabi still suffers severely from the injury to bis foot, and st times complains of a very great dizziness in his head. Both men, howarer, concur concur in tbe wish of giving public expression to their feelings of gratitude for the care and attention tbey have received at the hands of the medical gentlemen, and those connected with the Retreat. Very Important Statement of the Foarth Offi. cer.of the Arctic. Mr. Mask Gbahah, Fourth Officer of the Arctic gives the following statement : On the 27ih there was a fine brecre from V. S. W. The sea was not so calm aa has been stated in some of tbe published accounts. I was on deck from 7 till 12 o'clock on the day of the accident accident ; thia was my watch. The Captain, was on deck at 12. He told me to strike eight bells, which I did. Abcut three minutes afterwards, one of the men on the look-out look-out look-out struck one bell, aad sung out, " Hard to starboard." The wheel was immediately put as directed, I then saw a vessel on our starboard starboard bow, coming stem upon us with all her sail set. She struck us on the starboard bow about 50 or 55 feet abaft the atern. She left part of her cutwater cutwater and em in our bow. . She then drifted abaft tbe wheel, when ahe got clear of us. I could see she was cut down as low as the water, and as far abaft as the foremast. I could see the cargo in he.-fore he.-fore he.-fore hold quie plain. Our starboard quarter boat was then lowered with six of the crew, in charge of tlie chief mate, to render assistance to the vessel vessel with which we bad come in oontac'. Tbe boatswain's mate, and some five or six' men were also lowering the starboard guard boat to render aid to the propeller, when Capt. Lock cried out to hold on with that boat and go forward and get the anchors over on the port side, for the ship was listing over to starboard very fat. I immediately got about "wenty of the fireoaca aad coal passers ind'sone of the second cabin passengers to assist me. We got the anchors over and th?n emp ied tbe water out of the water casks end rolled them over to port and then filled them ia order to give the vessel vessel a Lmt in that direction and get the holes out of the water. We found it irhpoib!e. The carpenter carpenter was then lowered o examine the nature of the damage doie our vtssel. He said there was a hole about six feet below water-mark, water-mark, water-mark, 18 inches Jee and 0 feet long. Capt. LrcK then told me to faven a nail over the hole. I ordered wa men to get flie maintopssil up, and get liaM and sweep them under the ship's bottom, aud make them fast to ilin clewn of the topsail, and have tbe sail dra wn close to the s-hip'e s-hip'e s-hip'e aide. But, with all we could do, thu water kept gaining on tbe ship's pumps. We then got the mainsail and put that on tuc topsail. Trie C'pfciin remarked that if this did not stop the leak u. lets than ten minutes, it would be every man for himself, ss we were now up to the lcr deck bows Effort was then made to lighten the ship by letting tbe chains run overboard, all hope being given up of oaring the vessel from kinking yuirkly after this. Caf. Ln began ossistme the tsUies a,id . hilJren r pevf rrf 6oa, which hod Letn lotcered for ; that purvoto. . The port-quarter port-quarter port-quarter boat was also filled with ladies aid gentlemen while still hanging at the . davits. Fire of the crew were among them. Mr. Kills, 'he second assistant engineer ; n'm. JCiW, " quartet master; Thomas Banrcr, M. Cummins,, Cha. Steu ard, seamen ; Mrs. Collins, daughter ani son, I saw in the loot. One of the passengers, in , the act of lowering the bout, let go of the trestle fail, and all in the bout, cxcipt Mr. Ooler and one of the ' stamen, were drowned. By this time the guar.t boat had gone, having some IS or 18 ladies in it. This . lout was in charge of B. Van Ardbx. 1 1 i ow went ever to the starboard side. Captain Lite ordered Mr. Baalham to lower the starboard. ' guard beat, which he did. Soon as ho had lowered ' ber, tome eighteen or twenty jumped overboard, : who were picked up. I then got in this boat. ' The firtt ijunrtcr bost waa lowered, and twenty-six twenty-six twenty-six ' jtimp-d jtimp-d jtimp-d ito her. We took six of their number. ; Capt. Lcrs ordered our boata to leave. He told us Cape Race bore from us N. W. byW. Wo very soon lost sight of the ship in the fog. Thia w as about 2 o'clock. We steered for land, as we , supposed, by the heave of the sea. We had neither ' ment cor dritik for fifty hours. Friday morning. 6 e'rlock, 2Pih ult.,- ult.,- we reached Broad Cove. We walked from here to Renews, a distance of j i six miles. Here wo were bleejcd with food. Mr. I Baalham chartered two steamers to take ua to Mt. i Join's; but, osting" to adverse winds, after going ; twelve miles we put into a place called Fairy ! Land, where we remained two days and half, and ! I where we were most kindly and hospitably re- re- -j -j reived. From here wo walked to St. John's, a : distance of nfty nulea. We staid here two days, sua teen took the propeller Merlin to Halifax, oa board of which we received the kindest possible treatment. From her wo were transferred to the Europa, "and ea me to Boston. Mr. Graham saya that in the manner of leaving the Arctic no blame can be attached to Mr. Baalham. He further asrya, that ho was cool aad did e verything in his power to save the vessel aad i passengers entrusted to his care. Aaether State saeat freaa Hr, BaaThasa. In n lengthy conTerntron xrith Mr. Wit ILtM Baalham, Second Officer of the Arctic, that ge ntictaan expreaaed te as deep -regret -regret at seme ef the aeeounts that had appeared in the public prints in relation to this ssd disaster.' As far as sny remarks in reference to himself were eoneern ed, he felt it was not specially for him te speak. They might he the result of misconception or prejudice, prejudice, ot both. Ia view of such facts, he did not wish judgment to be passed upon any stsieasents emanating from hinrself ; but asked that kis entire conduct in connection with thia catastrophe should be judxed of wholly from the impartial relatioa of others. , . - -:.; -:.; Tbe few statements he did make, we subjeta, aa also e 2 War prooawArd Ay (Ac pmsmtrngora who accompanied accompanied him in the two beau which left the lrrtic c'sder his charge : . -. -. . The JaVtoa, which landed Mr. Baalka and his company at Halifax, was fourteen er fifteen hours cruizing where the aecidemt took place. They iaatituted the search at the instance ef Mr. Baalham. Whan the eollision took plaee, the jLrctK t speed was twelve and a half hour, the osual rata ia fog'y weather. AU due vigilance waa cxerciaed. On the forecastle ware stationed two men oa the constant lookout to avert any possibility of collision, or other accident. accident. At the time of the accident there were on deck two m officers beside Mr. Baalsah. It was not a moment after the other Teasel was seen before the collision took place. There was very great consternation. Immediate order was given to hard starboard the helm aad reverse the engine. The water was discovered pouring ia below, and Mr. Baalbam was ordered down to stop the leak. The effort to do ao waa of a? avail. Aa to the question, srAy to mono saoed were of the crew, and so few passengers, Mr. Baalham staes in explanation that Captain Lets -Tiered -Tiered him to Jump into a boat, which he did with three then. They had no sooner touched the water than they" w re surrounded with numbers who had jumpid oveiboard, and were struggling lor life He says tkry aid not atop to notice who and what they were, but filled their boat. Another boat was aUa lowered, and immediately filled. The two had all they could contain. They could do no more, and with severest inner struggling they left the o.hers, w hem they could cot aave, to the deep. He saya he left when he did at the imperative command of Captain Lcca. Mr. Baaluam's conduct in connection with the rescue ol the crew and passengers of the ship Ore an Monarch, a few years since, is too fresh in the re collection of many hearts to warrant suspicion of sclfiahiiesa er inhumanity on his part. For seven days and nights neither he nor his men closed their eyes. Captain Leitoh, of the Europa, when thoy ai rived at Halifax, in the kindest manner possible gave Mr. BaaLBaM and his men a passage to Boston. Boston. Mr. Baalh am says there is no doubt that Mrs. Collins was drowned, as there are many surviving surviving who witnessed her death.

On feeling the shack I immediately proceeded to the upper dcek, and saw the propelle r a short distance from us. At that time lheie u as no alarm felt for our own safety, supoosms the propeller to be the injured vessel! I oid not lear the order giren, but saw the First Officer, wuh five of the crew, loaer a boat to go to their assistance. After making- making- two circles around the propeller, I heard Captaia Lrcc call to Liin to come aboard, aa our vessel was the most injured, which he was unable to do, aa the Arctic was at that time under fult headway, and was immediately immediately lit aight of. The last we saw of him, he was standirg upright in his loat, apparently not iigbtly understanding Captain L.'s command. I next ueard Capt. L. give the command to put tbe vessel's head to shore, which way ahe headed till the water extinguished the fires in the furnace, and her engines ceased woiking. At that time I slipped over the side of the vessel and clung to the tackle attached to tha boat on the after-deck. after-deck. after-deck. I hung there for some momenta, repeatedly going under. On observing a boat astern, I let go my hold and swam for her ; the crew observing me, extended an oar to my assistance, and took me tu the boat. This boat I found manned by some 12 or 14 of the ciew, under the command of the Second Officer, who stated that he had been ordered by Capt. Lccc to drop astern and pick up thoao wh- wh- were in the water. We sooa drifted out of sight of the ateamer, in the dense fog; but lying oa our oara for a few moments, we heard the sound of the sUautVs bella, and on pulling in that ' direction aoon regained aight of her. While j we were pulling towards her we full : in with : the boat under command of the Purser, containing I 25 prisma ; our officer called to them, seeing that they were overloaded, aad told them that we could ' take six out of their beat ; we pulled along aide ! and tcok them on board, anil furnished them wka ', an additional oar, we having five and they bat three. The steamer having been loot aight of dur- dur- ; ing tlia time, ai d not being able to find any further : traces of her, by consent, both boats were placed i under command of Mr. Baalham, who ordered U at we should immediately pull for shorn ia eons- eons- pacy. We pulled all that night, aad tbe next day and night until I c'clock A. M., when we first asw land, and which we finally reached by 4 o'clock A ' M. We were guided mostly by the wind aad waves, ! our com pass being entirely useless, refusing to traverse in a metallic substance. Tha next day" j after leaving the steamer, wa observed twe vessels, ' one a haifc and the other a brig, which we chased j for some time, but were not able to attract their ! attention, or if we did, we wore probably saistakan for tahing vessels, as they took no nociee ef ear signals, though we were within a mile or two ef them. Both boats were entirely dcatitata ef provisions provisions aad water, aad we did aot taste either Landed food or drink nctO we landed at Cape Race. We tn a small cove, directly in front of a fisher man's hut, who kindly furnished na with some biscuit and crackers, i I believe that Mr. Baah lam was the means of saving these who were ia , the two boats, as the men were perfectly under Lis command, and obeyed his orders with great alacrity. Too much praise cannot be awarded to him. Capt. Lucn displayed great courage and presence of raiad. I saw him repeatedly at different parts cf the ship, giving orders, and endeavorias to pro. vent undue confusion and alarm. I do not lament, ber seeing any of Mr. E. . CoLLnrs's family after the eollision, excepting Master Collihs who mads aome remark, that caused the Lnpressian on my mind that he was preparing to embark ia one of the entail boats. . 4 :.,' , ,, ' , r ' Mr. Moon stmtea that several of the crew in ths komt tm'f A Asm, say f Aar t Acy sew (As butcksr of ths Arctic, who is represented ma e very abla amd akiOfml taOor, toi command of a Acer, which wee UmmJUi, riLLXP.wiTH LABIXl, m wAtYA tkert wma flac4 s earref e errarf eed e marrtt ? e asle whlck boat is yet to be afa-onated afa-onated afa-onated for.- for.- hlaaywing tbe beat to be eoa worthy, the eupposixio ie that they have been picked Bp by some Teasel And ear. riod to a distant port.

We may also mention, as aa incident, that as soon as his arrival was known, he w as beset by the relaliv es of some of the crew aad passengers, who anxiously inquiiod for tidings from the loot ones. . STATIMXKT. We left Liverpool on the 20th Sept., and were making 12 knots an hour on the average for 7 days. On the 27th at 12 o'clock, (midnight,) I was relieved fiom the port aide of the forecastle oa the lookout; going aft towards the kitchen oa tha starboard starboard aide, I beard the lookout aing out, and directly directly saw a vessel making right towards us. I sang oat " hard to starboard," running aft and getting up on the saloon deck ; I then sang out to Mr. Baalham to atop her, which was instantly dona. Tha Vesta's bow caught under the starboard wheel of the Arctir, injuring her wheel very much. I got off the saloon deck, made for the starboard quarter-boat quarter-boat quarter-boat and commenced commenced cutting away the cover, getting her thus lowered on a level with the guard. I then got again on the saloon deck snd sang out to one of the passengers to heave ever a couple of buckets, which he did, and I passed them into our boat. Rushing forward then to get the water casks and both anchors over on the port aide, and getting the water casks on the port quarter quarter to fill thorn with water to esse the ahip and get her bow out of water, I looked over the boars and saw three large holno-'-two holno-'-two holno-'-two holno-'-two holno-'-two above and one bo-low bo-low bo-low the coppering. Wo got the top-maat top-maat top-maat studding sail which the Wars left over our bead, getting great bars and lines cm it, and hung it over the bows trying trying to stop the leak, but to no purpose, as the sail was running us out to sea. We got our after pumps rigged and began pumping. I pumped for one hour; I weat through the pantry, and looking down in the engine-room engine-room engine-room saw the water flowing over tha side-levers side-levers side-levers ; I came on deck and going to Mr. Baalham asked him what he thought of it; he told me to stand by and get into the boat ; I did ao, and commenced filling the life-preservers life-preservers life-preservers with air ; the boat waa lowering gradually at the time until she reached tbe water. W a unhooked the, after tackle and then Mr. Baalham told the boat's crew to get into the boat, getting himself into the beat ; . the passengers crowded, several got in, and then i Capt. Lues sang oat te cut away the boat's fall and drop underneath the stern, which wo did. Up-; Up-; Up-; wards of IS or 17 bands jumped then towards oar j boat; we did our best to save them, and su- su- ceeded in doing so in a great measure. ' Tie Arctic at this time turning ahead, we clapped upon our oars, pulling towards the sound , ol the belL We pulled up, and when we got in sight of the ship, the guards were on a level with : tbe water. Farting ia with the other boat, aad taking six or seven of their passengers into oar (Mr. B s) boat, and seeing we could do no better, pulled away for the land, every seamaa pulling uf on an oar, relieving each other the night through, aud all Beit day. That day a aail have ia sight. We pulled twenty or thirty miles after her. She seemed a brigantine. We gained on her so ss to make out that ahe was unloosening sails to get away from us. All of ua (twenty aix in number) screamed out aad halloaed after her, but Lot heeding our cries, she kept on her j way ; we tied our handkerchiefs to aa oar and waved it at them with no better success; then all of us, two men on each oar, made tbe best way to the , land, which, at 2 o'clock wo caught sight of ; wo pulled ia and got under it at t, pulling up and down t and waiting for eaybrcak. At daybreak we . ed, at 6 miles to the west of Renews. From there Mr. Baalbam took a schooner and called me and i Datid Rain to go with kiu. , we put out to sea , at II in search of the wreck, atanding off about southeast, until 3 A. M. next day, when it com i menced to blow a gale from the northeast; we could not aee anything of the wreck, being 48 - n.Ues off the land. Wa made again for , tLe lard, putting in to T re pane, and , laid there from Saturday evening till Monday' .

We "stopped at'Re- at'Re- news, discharged bread and water, aad made aail - for St. Johns. We arrived there ov Tuesday . memiEg. when we learned for the first time that the ( vessel which bad come ta collision ' with the .ireric waa the Freaea steamer Fasts, she was lying mere with ue starboard bow stove in, aad her loremost goae, aad a lose of 14 mea. Wo left St. Johns for Halifax; arrived there four hours before the xwpm ; got oa board of her and reached Bos ton on Thu. sday night, aad came oa the Express train to the tJity.
