New York, Wednesday

The White Star Line has received a marconigram from the Oceanic, dated May 13th, latitude 39.56, longitude 47.01, reporting that she had picked up a collapsible boat of the Titanic containing three bodies. One body was apparently that of Thomas Beattie and the others were a sailor and a fireman. They were committed to the deep. In the boat were also a coat with letters addressed to Richard N. Williams; a can marked "Dan Williams," and a ring with the inscription, "Edward and Gerda." The collapsible boat is the one mentioned by Mr. Lowe in his testimony at Washington as that from which he took twenty men and three women, leaving three bodies.
