SvliiXTON, Pa., September 6.
Tiiere is grout excitement hero in cousc
vui'iico of the burning of a coal break at tbo
Avendule mine, Plymouth, about twenty
in 1 1 er south of Ibis city. Tbcte are two
hundred and ouo men and boys iu the mine,
and tbe shaft, which is the only means for
escape, is cbokod by forty feet of burning
coul and rubbish. Ventilation is totally
stopped, and there aru grear fears that
some, If not all, will be suffocated.

puiiy, in Ibis pluce, aud in a tboit lime tie
whole imukcr und outbuildings were in

only uvanne of e.-cauo for the miners, do
slroyrd. Allelforls to stay tho llamus were
unavulliug, and tbo whole strucluro full,
iilllug up the shaft. Some two hundred
men ure iu tbo shult, and buvo no commu
nication, and with co cbaoca for air, as the
only wAy for getting air into tbe shaft was
through tho main opening, aud thut was
filled with burning limbers, debris and
ilumes; it is feared the whole number have
been suffocated by smoke, or perished for
want of air. The Ore departments of Sctan-
ton, Wilkesbarre and Kingston are playine
streams down tho shaft for the purpese of
quenching tbe fire tbcre, so that tbe rubbish
cun bo cleared out, and the condition of tbo
men ascertained. It will probably take
till to-morrow morning before tidings onn
be received from them. Tbe eceno is heart
rending. Families aru congregated in grout
numbers, and miners from all parts of the
country are tboro at work merchants, and,
lu fact, tbo whole population of the towu
have turued out to assist. Tbo loss by the
lire will amount to about $100,000, partly
covered bynnsurance. All tbe physiciuus
of this vicinity have been summoned to at
lend when the condition of tho men is as
