A TALE OF THE SEA. Two Swedish sailors were landed at Plymouth on Monday, the sole survivors of the American ship Alfred Watts, of New York, which was wrecked with the loss of 26 lives off the Bahamas. The survivors passed a dreadful time. The ship broke up, and they remained on a part of the wreck, from the main portion of which nearly all the other hands were washed away. There was then only one chance for those on the raft, and that was to get back to the wreck. This some of them did, but the owner's son, in his delirium walked into the water. Another was drowned who jumped into the water with the intention of swim- ming. A Russian who leapt into the sea in despair was seized by a shark, and a fourth was too ex- hausted to prevent himself from being washed away. The two Swedes finally reached the waterlogged Alfred Watts. There they sank down, exhausted and unconscious. On recovering they found plenty of food and water, and thus managed to live on the floating wreck until the Lizzie Perry took them off. The Lizzie Perry was herself subsequently wrecked during a great gale at Barbadoes, but all hands, in- cluding the rescued Swede, were saved by taking to the boats. They were, however, stripped of every- thing by the natives on shore.
