The London Times has a few articles. It appears there was a issue:

The Loss Of The Europe.
New York Aoril 15.
Captain Lamaire states that Captain Thomas, of the Greece,  
peremptorily refused to allow him to return to the Eurpoe the morning  
after his going on board the Greece, and that the salvage crew took  
possession of the Europe against his will.

Captain Thomas and his officers, however, totally contradict Captain  
Lemaire's assertions. they state that he signalled that his ship was  
sinking fast, that he accepted help, transferred his passengers and  
crew to the Greece, and slept himself on board that vessel. they also  
declare that no remonstrance was made by the officers of the Europe to  
a salvage crew being sent on board.
April 16.
The officers of the National company's steamship Greece have offered  
to make a sworn statement of the circumstances attending the disaster  
to the French steamer Europe, but the Transatlantic Company have  
declined the offer.

 From the Times of Friday, April 17, 1874

There are a few more and I am sure there would also be some in the NY  
Times as well.
