Twenty-five of the Aurora's crew have landed. The Aurora is supposed to have sunk. Hundredn of Russians who were landed on various islands, are arriving at Sasebo. Shots from one of the Japanese torpedo boats partly disabled the Kamschafcka, which was finally struck in a vital part. Sixty of the crow took to the boats and were nearly clear when a great explosion occurred, which sank the Kamschatka. The captain and seven officers were killed.
