Hunter, thus delayed two days bv General
Dullie's blunder, marched towards Lynchburg
via liucbunan, partly because there might be dif
ficulty in fording tho James river below that
point (our pontoon bridgu being utterly worth
less, as was proved at Port Republic), und partly
because we had such information of tho rein
forcements from Richmond then arriving in the
valley that it lieeamo necessary to secure two
possible lines of retreat other than the road of
our advance. At Buchanan, moreover, were
located some of the most Important furnaces,
foundries, and cloth mills of tho Rebel Govern
ni( nt, and those it was essential to destroy.
Fn m Buchanan the march was continued to
ward Lynchburg, tho country becoming barer
and barer of supplies as we advanced, the pcoplo
running all their stock aud stores iuto the moun
tains to the right aud left of us, and the business
of foraging becoming more and more ha.ardous

On the 17th of June the enemy made a rei'i

On Ihe day follow ing General Hunter and his

of the arrival of the greater part of Kn ell's corps
on their front, and a brisk attack, which lasted
with brlel intermission all day long, developed a

said eleven trains of cars nrrhiug from Kich

lines, und Irom what our men learned in their
two elnirges against the enemy's detensi s, it te
ei'inc clear by midday thut we had then iu limit
ot us a force of Vtleran troops at least equal to
our own in numbers, and probably mip nor,

or-c than nil, however, we were short of am
munition, tho tram ex pi 'ted under General
Stub I not tin n having arrived. It was theiciom
dt teiinined iu a council of war, consisting of
Generals Hunter, Sullivan, Crook, and Avcrill,
that our best course was to retire upon Salem,
there being from that point two lines of retreat
open to us ono duo west towards laistorn Ten
nessee, and the other north' and by west up the
Kanaw ha valley.
If it lie iiskcd, why did not Hunter return
towards Ids supplies by Ihe Shenandoah route,
up which he had advanced? the answer must
take the form of another question : would the
killing or capturing of Ins entire command havo
lnaieiialiy helped the I'nion cause ?" 'i he enemy
bad a railroad oust of tho Blue Ridge from
Lynchburg to Rocktish Gap, or Waynesboro,
only twelve miles from Staunton the rdlroad
which General Dutlie had unsuccessfully at
ttiuptcd to interrupt, liy means of this road tho
whi le of ). web's Corps, and as many other
troops as General Lee might think ueccssuiy,
could easily have been thrown from sixty to
eighty miles in our rear, while Breckinridge,
with the valley troops, held us on our trout.
And as we hud but little ammunition, uud were
utterly out of supplies, while lliero would bo uo
chance to collect In presence of a superior force
of the enemy, it appeared reduced to a mathe
matical ccrUiiniy that un attempt to return down
the Shenandoah would be equivalent to the an
nihilation or sunendor of our force. Thut Gene
ral Grunt was of this opinion Is abundantly tes.
titled by the anxiety for our safety which pre
vailed for sevcutl days at his headquarters. Hu
believed that wo were in imminent duuger of being
dettioyed or captured for some time, and made
vigorous efforts to employ all he could of the
nieinv's forces in order to give Hunter a chance

creek in better health than they stalled with,
but were sorely In want of food, niiimuiiiiinti,
and a new outfit. Moat of tho cavalry horses
wi re played out from tho want of forage; but
inking it for all and all, no raid of the war has
yet inflicted so much loss of vital kind upon the
em my, at so little sseriti e of men und in iterial.
For two bundled und forty miles up the Shenan
doah Valley, we had destroyed every public
work intended for tlie benefit of the enemy's
Furnaces, foundries for shot and shell, gimsbiek
factories, cloth mills, tan yards, railroads, fac
tories of all kinds, he, our line of march being
maiKCii ny a pillar ot smoke oy day, and a
pillar of lire by night, formed from the confla
gration of the public build lips of the enemy's
Government. Of private property nothing was
injured with the exception of Governor Leicher's
bouse, he having the day previous Issued a pro
clamation against us, inciting tho inhabitants of
the country to a gneri hi warfare.
It was not until General Hunter, in advance of
his command, reached Purkersburg, In Western
Viiginia, that we beard a syllable of the Rebel
raid into Maryland. All that could then bo done
to luirry forwaid our troops was at otico ener
getically ondcriaken ; but tl.ero were not over
twenty or twenty-three Inches of water in tho
Ohio, and the railroad from Cumherlnnd to Har
per's Ff rrv hud been pretty well crippled by tho
enemy, though not one-fiiiieth part so effectually
as we bad destroyed their railroads in the vicinity
of Staunton and Lynchburg. In tho task of re
cquinping and hurrying forward our troops to
wards Mary hind Gencrul Hunter labored wl'h
his usual tireless zeal and conscientious lldclity,
being nobly seconded by tho elloi ts of Brigadier
General Kelly, who was iu command ut Cum-
For the disgraceful stampede which had driven
General Sigel buck from Murtinsburg to Mary
land Heights without a contest, it is not easy to
pee how () neral Hunter can be held responsible.
He hud left iinucr General Nigel a total of over
ten thousand men, und yet this force retired
before an undeveloped enemy, having lost, so far
as can Leusecitainod, some lint less than thirty
five men, all told, "killed, wounded, and miss
ing." This was the extent of tho "gallant arid
siuliboin resistance" try which General Sigel
"saved his invaluable train," and sent it into
Baltimoie. But can General Hunter be held
sponsible f ir the miscoiidtfct of this otlicer,
when we recollect that ho had been ordered, on
essoining command, to "retain General Sigel iu
employment" General Sipel's rank giving him
no option but to offer to that oillcer the next
highest command to his ow n.
As for the rest, the suce, ss of tho Itobel raid
Into Mary hi ml is clearly due to tho want of fore
sight end adequate preparations in other than
General Hunter's heud,Uarterts. General Hun
ter's location was thoroughly well known to the
war authorities, who aro understood to havo sent
him warm acknowledgments for tho brilliant
achievements of his raid, aud tho successful
in.iuher In which he had drawn off his command
unininrid from Hint hazardous serviee. Willi
Scarcely any water iu the Obi , and the railroad
between Cumberland and Harper's Ferry broken
in more than a doon places, it was a physical
impossibility for any portion of Humor's army to
buve reached Maryland in time to repel the
RcIm'I invusion; but, owing to General Hunter's
personal exertions und unceasing labors, more
then ten thousand of ins men were within
etiikiug distance of the retreating enemy two
To talk of pursuit, however, from the north of
trains going south, and guarded by so large a
force as Generals l'.arly, Ransom, uud llreekin
ridge ha-c under them, is tho sh ere ,t nonsense.
Lut us the supreme command of this pursuing
force, such as It is and if is very fonnhhi'ilc
lissl teii given, by order of tho President, to
M.ijor-Generul Wright, of the tith Army Corps,
we hope that iho best icsults may bn e.xpeced.
This a signnicut relieves General Hunter from
all appearances of responsibility in a matter he
nevirrially hud any connection with; and f ir
the success or failure of General Wright's intention-,
that otlicer und the War Dcpuriiiicnt will
alone be responsible before the couutiy.
It is well understood here, and therefore can
l no violation of military coni'Mcnce to say, that
General Humor tins asked to ba relieved from
Ci nilnal d of this Department In con ,eqtieucR of
the action ol the War l)epa tiueiit In ordering nil
his available tnsips to lejen-t to Maj r-Genoral

sponsibility in connection with tue Maryland in

A Terrible Catastrophe in

FALLING OF A PORTION OF
Eighteen of tho Insane Known

Many Injured, and Some Fatally.

This mornlnR atiout quarter-past six o'clock,
nu accident occurred at the Ulockluy Almshouse,
in tho Twenty-fourth Ward, In which the lives of
eighteen persons are known to have been tost, and
many more fatally injured and stilt missing.
The accident occurred In the female department
of the Insane Asylum, and was attcudetl with tho
most shocking and heart-rending scenes.
Ir'rilloii of Ihfi IttilMlna;.
Tno department where tho accident occurred
was divided into three stories. The first lloor
wrs occupied by the epileptic Insane; the second,
by the ordinary insane j and the third, by the
sick. The first floor was also used as a dining
and sitting-room, und tho second as a sitting
room. Tim liuil. ing was constructed in the most sub
stantial Manner, being built of brick and stone,
with a rough outside. The rafters were heavy
and thick, and the construction of the depart
ment was such that an accident was never
Just us tho bell for breakfast rung this morn
ing, the ciita-trophe occurred. The poor insane
were all up, and some of them had loitered Into
Ihe sitting room, and some were already In tho
The departments, at ordinary times, aro occu
pied as lm lows: On the tlrst llnor, o l; second
tloor. "JT : third lloor. I'll. I'ortun atelv. at the
tune of the oci tirrcucc, there were atiout fifty '
pel sons on tlie second and intra lioors, thus
rendering the casualties much greater than they
otherwise would have been.
At the time stated three loud and terrific crashes
were heard, caused by the falling of the three
lloois at intervals. Immediately tho whole place
was a mass of ruins, all having disappeared save
the hanging rafters and a portion of the roof.
The department was completely gutted out. The
unfortunate victims were hurled from the second
and third floors dow n to the basement, along
with these on the first, all of whom were buried
alive beneath the ruins.
The shrieks of the iusano were most appalling,
und tho whole pince was thrown iuto tho utmost
confusion. Some of the number managed to
work their way out, when they were at once
taken charge or, and hurried to places of se
curity. The crash attracted tho attention of the various
ofllcials in the premises, and they, together with a
Dumber of the Inmates of other Departments,
rushed to the spot, and commenced clearing
away the ruins and extricating tlie dead ami
The appearance of the place was most dan
gerous, and.it was with great risk that the victims
could be rescued. Tlie rafters and huge piecesof
stone continued to fall. Some pol l Ion of the roof
and ceiling was in a tottering condition, and had
to be torn away, in order to allow tho work to
All tho surgeons iu tho House were summoned
to attend to the wounded. Dr. butler und his
assistant, Dr.McKlroy,of the Insane Department,
were most unremitting iu their attentions tojthoso
who needed their aid. The most able of the
paupers at the place were called, together witli a
number of outsido workmen, ami nil set lo work
removing tho ruius uud currying oil the dead and
The dead bodies of sixteen were taken from
the ruins, and two more, badly injured, died as
soon as they wero udmirted into the surgical
ward. It wus impossible to obtain all tho names
of those who were killed, ns s uno of those who
weie taken from the ruins wero so muti
lated us lo lie pust recognition; besides, their
names are only known according to the descrip
tion given them in the doctor's record.
Tho-e who escaped unhurt, and who received
slight injuiies, were conveyed to upartmeiits.nud
all placed together, uud until the roll is c died
and a record made of each itiinuto, the names of
all the mis-iiig e nnot bo ascertained. Tho names
ol those k'vwu to be killed are as loitows ;
Christiana Alilson, an epileptic case.
Andiew J. Noble, an insane lad, aged six y jars.
i-.lleii Murray, suppo ed to be dead.
The uthuis will not be recogni.cd until this
uflcrnooii or evening.
At noon the workmen were still busily en
gaged in clearing away the ruins, as two or three
others urc yet supposed to be buried beneath.
Nineteen were wounded, and live or six so
badly, that their recovery is considered doiitiii'ul.
Among the number was Catharine Mean, whose
in inrics mill p-obably piove fatal.

The t'iis. ol' the Ai-rlilont.
The precise cause of the accident is not po i
tively known, although it is supposed to hue
oci lined iu the following manner. '1 lie. lir-t
floor was -uppnrted by nil archway and a pier.
1 he ceilings ol the second and tliird lioan wote
ulso supported by piers.
The impression is that the lirst pier, or tho one
Hipt'ortiiig the lirst door, together with tho arch
w:.v, gave way. The weight of the seeoud aud
thiid lioors icstiiig on the lirst, with nu support
under the latter, of course caused the othurs to
tall. This ilia, seems to bo continued from the
tact three distinct cra-hes.iit successive intervals,
wee heard. Tho three rooms were about thirty
four feet square, with a respective height of
twelve or fourteen feet, making the stories very
high. Tho break was Immediately in the centra of
each room, the laftci t t racking iu two, Iho broken
ends falling downwards while tho other end re
mained against tho wall. In consequence of tho
i ilter not fulling entire, the lives of many of tlie
ininates were thus saved.
At the blue of the crush a largo number of In
sane children were sitting along the wall on tho

lated in the centre, owing to tho funnel-like
shape into w hich the rafters had fallen, they tints
It is also thought that tho pier which gave way
first hud been partly cut through by the old
heating apparatus underneath. Pats were also
atunduut in Hie cellar, and may have coutiibuted
to the mischief.
The whole of this w Ing of tho Iusunc Popart
nicnl is a mass of ruins, uud will have to be re
built. 'Die loose stones, brick, mortar, uud
broken rafters, completely till the cellar, and ex
tend above the first floor.
Those who w ere on tho lirst fl'sor at tho time of
the occurrence wero exposed to the gruatest dan
ger, as the floor upon which they wero located
not only gave wuy, but they were imperiled by
Ihe liilliug ruius of tho seeoud uud third stories.

from a Mfur, or the falllnir bricks anil rnnne.
The ! x llmient R.iiona the Insnm,
The terror and consternation among the insane
who nere in tho department at tho tune, is be
yond all description. Soma were so confused
and their mil ds Impaired that they left go their
hold on the rafters which they had gra-ped, and
were thus precipitated below, and In some cases
received serious injuries.
The Oerse cloud ot dust caused by the crash
whs hi Intense that some, when taken out,
although uninjured, were almost suffocated from
this cause alone. Some eight or ten of the terror
sti u l eu victims were found g tthcred together In
one rorr.er, making the most hideous and terrible
'lhey seemed unconscious of the danger
thrntigh w hich lhey had passed, and when re
movcii to other departments were In a few min
utes apparently as bappy and pleased as boiore
the occurrence of the sad allair.
The famine would not have been so ereat had
the Inmutcs been possessed with full rvonlng
powi rs, and ah e to ward oil' danger. The third
flunr was used exclusively for the sick Insane and
contained 113 ocenpanti1.
Being decrepit! ill mind and body lhey were
more helpless than children, and it is thought
that more of these were killed than In the other
tw o rooms.
Coroner Tay lor w as notified of the occurrence,
und nt once proceeded to tho Almshouse. Ho
will summon a jury tills afternoon, mid a view
of the mangled remains und ruins will Ire bad. It
is thought that tho cause of the aecldcut will
prove to be as stated.
