THE STEAMSHIP CITY OF GLASGOW

A great deal of anxiety is felt at Philadelphia, and in fact throughout the country, because of the non arrival of the steamship City of Glasgow. She left Liverpool on the 1st of March for Philadelphia, having on board the usual cargo and more than three hundred persons, including the crew. Her agents in Philadelphia, it is said, do not share the general alarm. They believe that she has been detained, either by some trifling accident, or by having been surrounded by fields of ice. Her last passage westward occupied twenty-six days, and during this time she had seventeen days of bad weather. By recent arrivals we learn that fields of ice have been observed much further south than usual at this season of the year. The Baltic, for example, which left New York four days after the City of Manchester, had not reached Liverpool, while the City of Manchester had arrived with a report that she had encountered much difficulty in making her way through the ice. The City of Glasgow had an ample supply of coal for twenty-six days, and with economy in its use, for twenty-eight or thirty. The Glasgow is a staunch built vessel, and in every way well calculated to stand the roughest treatment from old ocean. Her new Captain, Mr. Morrison, is an able and experienced commander, and has made several voyages in her as first and second officer. In a conversation with Capt. West, of the Atlantic, on Friday, that gentleman expressed his firm conviction that the Glasgow was safe. He thought that she had encountered the vast fields of ice which lay in her track, broken her propeller, and was making her way into the nearest port (probably one of the West India Islands) under sail, for provisions and water.
