Mr. Ballentine has written a letter to parties in Chicago concerning the A.B. MOORE, in which he says: "We are experiencing some very severe lessons and are now satisfied that no one had sufficiently estimated the strength of everything required to make her staunch in every particular. There is but little more to do to prevent the accidents which have befallen her, and as fast as they are developed we will endeavor to rectify them."
