I The. Last Island Calamity. The very lai - e edition of the Picayune, which we pub li tied yesterday, in order to meet the demand for our report of the fearful disaster at Last Island, which we republished in it, having been exhausted, while the demand continues, wo reproduce it on our fourth page this eve nm, with further corrections, some of which wo cannt but feel great pleasure hi having to make. It will be perceived that we have been able to withdraw the names of Messrs. Thomas MUle and M. Schlatre, Jr., from the list of victims, and to transfer them to that of those saved. . Of the circumstances of the escape of the latter, bevond a statement in a letter received from him in this city, that it was miraculous, we are not vet informed. Those under which Mr. Mille has been saved, are, as reported, in di ed miraculous. lie floated on a log for five diivs, having no other stfpport durine that whole time than the rain water he could suck from his garments ! He was picked up by a boat cruising, ia the - hope of being able to reaeue some who might have survived, or to pi'. - k; up the floating bodies of some who had been drowned. The lctttr from Mr. Schlatre above referred to, states that Mr. Milie and himself are both staying at Mr. Charles V. Brien's, at Bayou Bo - 'uf. Mr. Schlatre, we rerret, has his knee out of joint.
