RESCUED IN MID OCEAN,
Tho name of Captain Hamilton Murrell has been frequently mentioned in recent cable messages as the rescuer of over 700 passengers fiom the disabled steamer Danmark. He and hiscifiw have been specially honored ia London, ard. jadgirg from the rcpotts given in the New York papers, their efforts richly deserved recognition. In the course of an article on the subjecl, the 'Tribune' remarks :-" A younccman (twenty-eight) to command an ocean steamer; he has an old head upon his shoulders. His coolness and self-possession were displayed most conspicuously when he directed the transfer of the passengers and crew from the sinking ship to his own decks. There was a high sea running at the time, and it was impossible for the boats to approach either vessel without imminent peril of being dashed to pieces. Captain Murrell, standing on the bridge of his steamer, without apparent concern or anxiety for the sifety of the 738 Scandinavians, supervised the operation as quietly as he would have shipped a cargo ot freight at a Philadelphia wharf. With ready invention, he devised an expedient bv which every boat's load was tranefetre'd wttfrottt difficulty or danger. A
life raft was attached to the Danmark and another to tho Misßouii, and the boats plied between the two, the passengers were lowered to the first raf'-, taken off without risk, landed on the second raft, and hoisted oa board the Missouri at the convenience of those who were manning the rape?. 5t wvl au admirably arranged ferry from one vessel to the other, and with a iii.jh wind aid heavy peas was op rated ao (■.uecet.sfully that not a life was lost. When the transfer was completed Captain Murrell cast overboard his cargo and devoted himself with untiring energy and fidelity to ministering to the comfort of tho hundreds of passengers committed to hist cure. It is not strange that every emigrant blessed him on leaving his vessel, and that the women hung about him, eager to kis3 his hands."
