|THE QUEENSTOWN CALL.|
| We have received a telegram from the United
States Lines at Cork contradicting the statement published on July 31 that the steamers of this company
were ceasing to call at Queenstown. The company say[s]:
The facts are as follows :Our steamship President Adams, from New York, arrived off the Daunt light-vessel at 4 a.m. on July 28, and our company's special pilot (Aherne), who had been awaiting the arrival of the vessel boarded her three miles south-south-west of Roche's Point, bringing her to an anchorage at 4.30 a.m. G.M.T. Having landed fifty-six out of sixty-three Queenstown passengers and the Cork and Queenstown mails only (the other Irish mails were carried on to Plymouth at the request of the Cork postmaster), the President Adams proceeded for Plymouth at 5.45, all well.
