The s.s. Apex, which called at St. Lucia (West Indies) for coals, reported that off the north-east coast of that island she ran through a regular sea of petroleum, which floated so thickly on the surface that it could be drawn on board by buckets. This oil must be part of the cargo of the ship Belle of Bath, bound from New York to Hongkong with 50,000 cases of oil, and which caught fire and was abandoned 140 miles east half south of Barbadoes, at which place her crew arrived in boats. The Onda has put out about 700 tons cargo into the railway trucks. The brigantine Ocean Hover has put out about two-thirds of her cargo of scrap iron at the George street pier.
