[*We deeply lament to say this is an error. The amicable young lady was found lifeless in her berth, whither she had retired doubtless in alarm at the horrible din and crash of the wreck. Her body was removed by her afflicted relatives - and a general feeling of sympathy and sorrow has been excited by the announcement of her death.]
