STRANDING OF THE STEAMER AVALON. On Monday intelligence was received that the Great Eastern Railway Company's steamship Avalon, which has been running on the new line of route to the conti- nent, between Harwich and Rotterdam, and was strand- ed early on the morning of Thursday, on what is known as the Hook of Holland, had been most successfully floated. The Avalon is one of the superior steamers which were lately built for the Great Eastern Railway Compa- ny for the trade, and has made several rapid runs across the German Ocean. On Wednesday she left Harwich for Rotterdam, hav- ing no passengers on board, in order to commence the new tidal service arranged by the company, which was to come into operation on the following day, the lstinst. She was in charge of a Rotterdam pilot, and on passing inside what is termed the Hook of Holland she went ashore on the long range of sands which stretch out along that district of coast All attempts failed to get her off, and, as the wind and sea increased as the day advanced, the most serious apprehensions were enter- tained as to her fate. News of the mishap having been forwarded to Rot- terdam, two steamers were at once sent to her aid, but in csnsequence of the heavy seas which broke over the beach she could not be approached. Fortunately, how- ever, the weather moderated on Saturday; both the wind and sea had gone down, and there was an unusu- ally good tide to favour the operations for getting her off. The tugs got a strain upon the ship, and early in the afternoon of Saturday she floated, and was hauled off into deep water. She was afterwards towed up to Rotterdam and surveyed. It is stated that she has sus- tained no material damage. The causa of the disaster is now under investigation. Whether it arose from some error in the course, or im- perfect soundings, is yet to be ascertained.
