The Post says "Early prices for Blocks both in London and in this market were effect of the HUMjwnsioii of the North Kiver Bank yesterday, together with the nndar- Htnnding that its losses would require it to bo wound up.

The following statement !s author- ized by the company: "The as to the condition of the North Ameri- can Co. are unfounded and extremely unjust. The company baa no out- standing call obligations; its time loans are held by compn -atively few persons and institutions of great finan- c'rtl strength, abundantly secured by collaterals, which even at panic prices during last few days could have been sold for a sum sufficient to pay all its obligations and leave a large surplus to the credit of the company. The company has also a large amount of valuable assets in its treasury not pledged at all, and is, and always has been, perfectly solvent. The credi- tors were culled together simply to satisfy them of the sound condition of the company and ootain their co-oper- ation. The company has made no assignment and intends to make none." Stocks were st'.ll disturbed after but soon recovered former prices and again moved up, though the move- ment lacked vim. Northern Pacific preferred rose from to 00.

By Cable and Associated Tress.] LONDON, Nov. de- tails regarding the loss of the British torpedo cruiser Serpent have been re- ceived from Corunna. The disaster occurred at 11 o'clock Monday night. A heavy storm was prevailing, and the night was densely black. When the vessel struck her keel was torn off, and a great hole was stove in tier bottom. She slipped off the rocks into deep water, and immediately foundered, tons of water nishing through the hole in her hull. The majority of the and crew were below when the vessel struck, and she sank so quickly after- ward that none of them had time to reach the deck. The disaster was so sudden that it was impossible for those on deck to get a boat jnCo the water, and the time betwe.-n the striking and sinking was so short that nearly all on board went down without making a-sign. The Admiralty will investigate. It is officially stated the Serpent became partially disabled in a hurricane, and it was necessary for her to repair be- fore proceeding on her way. Her commanding officer was directed to put into Corunna or Vigo, and while attempting to make port the vessel was lost. The official statement shows the loss of life to be 173.
