A Good Comparison.?The Rev. Wm.Roulatt, a well known Methodist clergyman, resid-ing at Naples,draws the fo'lewing amusing,but aptcomparison batween Dr. McLane's celebrated Ver-mifuge and a ferret:

"A ferret, whan placed at the entrance of a rathole, enteri theappsrture, travels along thepa/Mage,seize* upon the rat, extermina'es bla \u25baxittence anddiawa the animal'*defunct carcata to the light Andin like mannerhave I found Dr. McUne's Ameri-can Vermifuge to operato upon wo.mi, thosedreadful and dangerous tormentors of children ?

This remedy, like the terret. enter* the aperture ofthe month, travels down the gullet, hunts roundthe stomach, lavs held of the worms, shakes the lifeoutof the reptiles, sweeps clean their den, ard car-ries their carcasses cl-ar out of the system. This. «tleast, has been theeffect of tile Vermifu upon m>children."

A neighbor of Mr. Rculatt, Mr. Jno. Briggs, adeptsthe simile o' thereverend certifies thus bo h givingtheir most unequivocal approval of this great speci-fic, after having witnessed its operation upon theirownchi!dren- Letotbers try it, and be satisfied.

ULARS OP HIS MIRACULOUSESCAPE.The narrative below will be read with thril-

ling interest. It is the same that was notic'ed under our telegraphic head, yesterday.


Quebec, Oct. 14th.E. K. Colliss, Dear Sir.?lt becomes

my painful duty to inform you of the totalloss of the steamer Arctic, under my com-mand, with your wife, son and daughter.

The Arctic sailed from Liverpool Wednes-day, the 20th ofSeptember, at 11 A. M., with?233 passengers, and about 150 of a crew.?Nothing of specialnote occurred during thepassage until Wednesday, 27th, when, atnoon, we were on the Banks, in lat. 46. 45North, and lon. 52 West, steering West, bycompass. The weather had been foggy dar-ing the day; generally a distance of half tothree quarters ofa mile could be seen, butat intervals of a few minutes a very densefog, followed by being sufficiently clear toseeone or two miles. At noon Ileft the deckfor the purpose of working out the positionofthe ship. In about fifteen minutes I heardthe cry of "hard starboard" from the officersof the deck. I rushed on deck, and had justgot out when I felt a crash forward, and atthe same moment saw a steamer under thestarboard bow, and at the same moment shestruck against our guards and passed asternof us. The bows of the strange vessel seemedto be literally cut or crushed off, for full tenfeet, and seeing that she must probably sinkin a few minutes, and taking a hasty glanceat our own ship and believing we were com-paratively uninjured, my first impulse was toendeavor to save the lives of those on boardthe sinking vessel.

The boats were cleared, and the first offi-cer and six men left with one boat, when itwas found that our own ship was leakingfearfully. The engines were sot to work,being instructed to put on the steam pumps,and the four deck pumps were worked by thepassengers and crew, and the ship headedfor the land, which I judged to be about 50miles distant. I was compelled to leave myboat with the first officer and crew to takecare of themselves. Several ineffectual at-tempts were made to stop the leak, by get-ting sails over the bows, and finding the leakgaining on usvery fast, notwithstanding allourvery powerful effortsof keeping her free,Iresolved to get the boats ready,and as manyladies and children placed in them as possi-ble. But no sooner had the attempt beenmade than the firemen and others rushed intothem, in spite of opposition. Seeing thisstate of things, I ordered the boats astern tobe kept in readiness until order could be re-stored, when to my dismay, I saw them cutthe rope in the bow and soon disappear as-tern in the fog. Another boat was brokendown by persons rushing at the davits, andmany were precipitated into the eea anddrowned. This occurred while I had beenengaged in getting the starboard guard boatready, and placed the second officer incharge. When the same fearful nceno aswith the first boat, was being enacted, metileaping from the top of the rail, twenty feet,pushing and maiming those who were in theboat. I then gave orders to the second offi-cer to let go and row after the ship, keepingunder or near the stern, to be ready to takeon board women and children, as soon as thefires were out and engines stopped. My attention wa3 then drawn to the other quarterboat, which 1 found broken down, buthanging by one tackle. A rush was madefor her also, and some fifteen got in and cutthe tackle, and were soon out of sight. Ifound that not a seaman was left on boardor carpenter, without any tools to assist usin building a raft, as our only hope, and theonly officer left wan Mr. Dorian, the third,mate, who aided me with the assistance ofmany of the passengers, who deserve greatpraise for their coolness and energy, in doingall in their power up to the very latest mo-ment before the ship sank.

The chief engineer, with h part of bii assistants,had taken our smallest deck boar, and before theship went down pulled away with about futeen per-sona. We bad succeeded in getting the fore andmain yard and two top gallant yards overboard,and such other small rpars and materials as wecould collect. When 1 waa fully convinced thatthe ship must go down in a very short time, audthat not a moment waa to be lost in getting thespars lashed together to form a raft, to do which itbecame necessary to get the life boat, our only remaining boat, into the water. This being accom-plished, I saw Mr. Dorian, the chief officerof theboat, taking care to keep theoara on board to pre-vent them from leaving the ship. Hoping still to?;et most of the women and children in thia boat atast They had made considerable progreaa in col-lecting the spars, when analarm was given that theship waa sinking,and theboat was shovrd off with-

out oars or anything to help themselves with,and when the ship sank the boat had got clear pro-bably aneighth ot a mile to leeward. In an Instant,about a quarter to five P. M., the ahip went down,carrying every soul on board with her. 1 soonfound myself ou the surface, after a brief strugglingwith my own helpless child in my arms, when 1againfound my sell impelleddownward to a greatdepth, and belore I reached the surface a secondtime had nearly perished and lost the hold oi mychild. As 1 struggled to the surface of the water amost awtul and heart rending scene presented itselfto my view?over two hundred men, women andchildren strugglingtogether,amidst piecesof wreckofevery bind, calling on eaeh other for help, andimploringGod to assist them. Such anappallingscene may Godpreserve mefrom witnessingagain1 was in the act of trying to save mychild, when aportionof a paddlebcx came rushing up edgewise,just grazing my head and falling with its wholeweigbt upon my darling child; another momentand I beheld him lying lUeless in the water. I suc-ceeded in getting on the top of tbe paddle box. incompany with eleven others?one, however, soonleft for another piece, fioding that it could notsupport so many. Tbe others remained, until theywere one by one relieved by death. We stood inwater, at a temperature of 45 degrees, up toour'knees, and frequently the sea broke directly overas. We soon separated from ourfriend tootherparts ot the wreck, and passed The night, each oneof us expecting every hour would be our last. Atlast, the wished for morning came, surroundedwith dense tog, not a living soul to be seen but ourownparty, seven now being leh. In the course otthe morning we saw some water casks and otherthings belonging to the ship, but nctfaiog that weoould get or afford usany relief. Our ran wmrap-Idly settling aa it absorbed the water. About noon,Mr. 8. M. Woodruff, of New York, wm relievedbydeath. AD the ethers now began to suffer veryseverely for want of water, exceptMr. George /.Alien and myself. In that respect wewere verymuch favored, although we had not a drop on theraft Theday continued foggy, except juatatnood,m nearM we eotdd judge.

From the Frenchman who wa* picked np, welearned thatthe steamer with which we came incollision was the screw steamer Vesta from StPierre, bound from and 'belonging to Greenv.Ue,Franee. As near as we could learn, the Veata wassteering East, South East, and was croaaing oarcourse, two points, with all aails set, wind west bysooth. Her anchor stock, about seven by fourinches square, was driven through tbebows of theArctic about eighteen inches above the water line,and animmense hole had been made at toe sameinstant by the flake of the anchor two feet belowthe water line, raking lore and aft the plank, andfinally freaking the chains, leaving tbe stock re-maining in and throughthe side of tba Arctic, or itis not unlikelythat as so much of her bows hadbeen crushed in, that some of the heavy longitudi-nal pieces of iron running through the ship insyhave been driven through our side, causing the loseof our ship, and I fear hundreds of moat valuablelives.
