The Orel's Fearful Ordeal.

Wounded Thrown Overboard. London, June 4 Advices from Tokio state that at the opening of the battle there were so many killed and wounded on tho battleship Orel, and the groans and shrieks of tho wounded exercised so harmful an effect on the rest of the crew, that it is currently reported the extreme course had to be taken of casting 140 hopelessly wounded overboard. Those who wero slightly wounded were placed round the masts of the vessel, and fastened so as not to hinder the fighting operations. The crew fought with desperate bravery previous to their surrender.
