NOBODY TO BLAME.
The Boiler Explosion Iavestlgated-In
rjunt ii pon the Body of Frederick
Barton-Th s Facts tn Detail.
Toe Inquest upon the body of Frederick
Barton, the unfortunate youth who was killed
by the explosion of the boiler at the Phoenix
Iron Werks of John F. Taylor 4 Co., on Fri?
day last, was begun on Saturday morning at
half-past ten o'clock, at the office of Coroner
Tait, in the Courthouse. A large number of
persons were present, and the evidence in the
case occupied tbe coroner and jury until late
in the afternoon. The following are the
names of the witnesses examined, and a sum?
mary o? the lacie proved by each:
THE FATHER'S TESTIMONY.
Frederick Barton, a boatman, living at No.
206 East Bay, recognized the deceased as bis
son. The latter was employed under a verbal
agreement with the superintendent. Mr.
Troth, for eight months at the Phoenix Iron
Works, on Pritchard street, as an apprenti c?,
to learn the trade of a finisher. There was no
agreement that the deceased should be em?
ployed as a fireman, or at any other work
than that which he was to learn. Deceased
was fifteen years and four months, of age.
Mr. Edward M. Troth said he was the en?
gineer and superintendent of the Phoenix Iron
Works, and one of the members of the firm of
John F. Taylor & Co. Did not see the explo
alon o? the boiler, being inside of the building
at the time. lhe deceased was employed as
an apprentice, under a verbal agreement, but
at the time of the explosion was firing up the
boiler. He was to learn the trade of a ma?
chinist, and firing under a boiler is one of the
things necessary for an apprentice, who is to
follow the trade of a machinist, to learn. De
. ceased had been so employed under various
boilers. The bursted boiler ran an engine of
from twenty to twenty-five horse power. De?
ponent has been eonnected with the works for
twenty month?, and had entire charge of
them. The exploded boiler was in use wusn
deponent came to the shop, and he thinks lt
from three to four years old. The tubes and
steam dome were nearly new, and the boiler
had been thoroughly overhauled about six
weeks ago, and made as good as new. The
boiler waa repaired in Its place by the com?
pany employees under the charge of Thomas
Miller. Deponent inspected the boiler alter
lt was repaired and before lt was used, and
found lt in perfect order. Has been for '.wen
ty years a general engineer, boilermaker, *r.
From the examination since made by him, ex?
ponent could not ascertain the cause of the
explosion. The fragment*! of the buller show?
ed i hat there was plenty of water in If. Fresh
water was used in the boiler. Mr. Kelly, who
had foll charge of the machine shop, pot the
deceased at work firing up the boiler. De?
ceased was perfectly competent to fire up,
Any person under the supervision of Mr. Kel
ly could fire up with periect safety.
THE BOILER WELL FILLED WITH WATER.
Michael Kelly testified that he was a ma?
chinist and engineer, and was employed at
the Phoenix Iron Foundry as foreman of the
machine shop. A few minutes before the ex?
plosion on Friday morning, he went to the
gauge-oock of the boiler and found two full
gauges of water. Did not try the third gauge.
He then went into the machine shop, and the
explosion took place. At the first shock, a
man beside deponent fell; picked him up, and,
finding no one burt, he then helped to
straighten things. Deceased bas been under
his charge al nee last summer as an apprentice
to fe trade of a machinist. Mr. Troth placed
him under deponent's charge. Deceased was
ordered to fire up by him, and has been firing
np at various limes, sometimes alone and
sometimes with another. There was no regu
lar fireman to the exploded boiler, the appren
tices being used as firemen in turn. Deceased
was perfectly competent to fire up. Not more
than a minute elapsed from the time he tried
the cock before the explosion took place.
There had been fire under the boiler for an
hour before the explosion. He had tried only
the second cock, but found solid water In that
About five minutes before be had tried all
three of the gauges and found two feet of
water and one of steam. Can form no opinion
of the cause of the explosion. The fresh water
used was supplied from a cistern and a well in
the yard. The boiler was filled the night be?
fore from the well, but after lt was repaired
in the morning lt was filled from the cistern
Cantesslgn no cause for the explosion, unless
lt was a sudden generation of steam. On
leaving the boiler Just before the explosion
he bad examined the gauge and found a pres?
sure of fifty-three pounds of steam. Not a
m?nate elapsed between the time he did this
and the explosion. Fifty pounds of steam was
the usual force; but he bad carried sixty and
sixty-five pounds. Mr. Troth, superinten?
dent, told him to carry from sixty to seventy
pounds if required; thinks that on Tuesday
last they had Beventy pounds of steam on this
DESCRIPTION OF THE BOILER.
Thomas Miller testified that he was a boiler
maker and employed at the Phoenix Iron
Works as foreman of the boiler shop. Friday
morning had occasion to renew a bolt in the
exploded boiler, and considered it at that time
as In good condition. Six weeks ago he had
charge of the repairing ot this boiler. It was
thoroughly cleaned and a new set of tubes put
in. It was forty-two inches in diameter, eight
feet long, and its snell was made of five-six?
teenths iron. There were thirty-eight tubes,
each?three inches In diameter, in the boiler. Tbe
shell was in perfect order and needed no re
pairs whatever. The boiler was over four
years old, but had not been in constant use.
He has been foreman of these boiler works
for four years and at boiler making for fifteen
years. Examined the pieces of the exploded
boiler and found nothing to Indicate the cause
of the explosion. Did not make a careful ex?
amination of all the pieces. Believes the
boiler to have been perfectly strong. All the
parts of the boiler seemed to explode at the
same time. Can form no opinion as to the
cause. Fifteen minutes before the explosion
he found solid water in the second cock. Saw
the boiler filled with water one hour before
the explosion. The boiler was tested with
cold water and subjected to a pressure of one
hundred pounds. Thinks it should have been
safe with one hundred and twenty pounds of
Francis Burns, a boilermaker's apprentice
at the works, testified that three-quarters of
an hour before the explosion he put the man
hole plate on the boiler, and found there seven
Inches of water over the tubes. Does not
known it any water was put in the boiler
afterwards. None of the apprentices in the
holler-shop have, to his knowledge, been put
at work firing under boilers.
Morris Maguire, machinist at the works, tea
tilled he was in the store-room when the
boiler exploded. Has seen the deceased
working about the shop and flrlng-up under
the boiler. Believed him to have been fully
competent for this. There was no regular
fireman to the boiler.
THE LAST INSPECTION.
W. J. Bowick, machinist at the works, testi?
fied that about ten o'clock he called Mr. Kelly
to fkamlne a piece of work, and that while
Mr. K. was doing this the explosion took
place. When he called Mr. Kelly, the latter
was standing with his hand on the gauge
cock ol the boiler. Thinks that about ten
minutes elapsed from the time Mr. Kelly left
the boiler until the explosion occurred.
Wm. Ryan, boilermaker at the works, testi?
fied that on Friday morning he was working
on the boiler, between seven and nine
O'clock, expanding some of the tubes that
were leaking. There was no water then In
the boiler. When the man-hole plate was put
on there was about seven or eight Inches of
water over the tubes of the boiler, wblch
would bring the water over the second cock.
Can form no opinion as to the cause of the
MR. TAYLOR'S EVIDENCE.
Jno. F. Taylor, of the firm of Jno. F. Taylor j
4 Co., testified that he was an engineer, and
bad been a member of the firm for six years,
carrying on a general engineering business of
all kinds.? The exploded boiler was four years
old. It wa? a return tubular boiler. It was
forty-two Inches in diameter, eight feet long,
five-sixteenths of an inch In the shell, and
had about forty tubes, each three inches in
diameter and one-eighth of an inch thick. It
was calculated to bear one hundred and twen?
ty pound? ol steam with safety, aad had never,
to his knowledge, had more than eighty
pounds on it. The shell was mode of the
best American boiler iron. The firm makes
boilers, and have been making them for over
thirty years. Over one hundred boilers have
been made at the works during the past three
or four years. Examined all the pieces of the
boiler found after the explosion and could
form no idea as to the cause of the explosion.
Boilers of the size of the one exploded are
seldom made of iron as thick as that one; tbe
boiler ought to have been ueed with safety for
twelve years; all the parts of it seemed to
have given way at the same time. The boiler
wa- tested six weeks ago. and subjected to a
cold water pressure of one hundred pounds.
The United States inspector allows three
quarters as much steam as water pressure.
The Jury then adjourned until ten o'clock

THE PUHIM BALL_The event of to-night,
in society circles, ls the grand bal masque to
be given at the Academy of Music, under the
auspices of the Harmony Circle, as the con?
cluding celebration of the festival of Purim.
The management, as will be seen by referring 1
to the advertisement elsewhere, is in the com?
petent hands of a number of gentlemen whose
names give a guarantee of success, and the
rules of the ball have been carefully arranged
to insure the complete enjoyment of all. The
Purim festival was duly observed in the Syna?

was graciously remembered, and the triumphs
of her reign-the dellverarce ef the Jewish
nation from the fate which Haman had in
store for them, and the execution of this Per?
sian premier on the very gallows he had raised
for Mordecai-were recited Irom the sacred
book in which ls recorded this mysterious pre- j
servation of the chosen people.

THE GROWTH OF CHARLESTON.
The Twenty-sixt li City in America and
the Fourth City of the Sou Hi-Analy?
sts ot Nativities-Curlou? ?nd Sug?
AD inspection of the Federal census of 1870,
the first volume of which bas j net been re?
ceived from the census commissioner, gives
some figures of interest to CbarleBtonians
some which will flatter iheir amour propre
and Borne which remind 'hem of the discour?
aging facts in the face of which the City by
the Sea is manfully struggling lo regain her
place of pride and power. Charleston, In point
of population, ls the twenty-sixth in the Hst
of American cities. Ol the Southern cities
she is only the fourth In point of numbers,
the only ones which surpass her in size being
New Orleans, with 191,418 inhabitants; Louis?
ville, with 100,753, and Richmond, wilh 51,038.
Charleston is said to contain 48,956 inhabi?
tants, (22,749 whites, 26,173 colored, and 34
Indians,) which indicates an increase from
1869 -when the Slate census gave us a popu?
lation of 44,952-of 4004. At the same rule of
Increase the population of Charleston in 1872
might safely be estimated at upwards of 53,000.
A PIECE OP ?JUSTICE.
It must, also be remembered that
the Federal census was taken In
Charleston during the hottest months of the
year 1870, while many of tte residents were
enjoying themselves in the cooler resorts of
the North, and In view of this fact lt ls emi?
nently probable that a re-count, such as was
demanded and obtained In New York City
for a similar reason, would have resulted, as
lt did result in the case of New York, In the
addition of thousands ci names and a nearer
approach to an accurate statement of the per- :
manent population. Following in the wake
ol Charleston In the list of Southern cities
comes Memphis, with 40,226 Inhabitants,
Mobile, with 32,034, and Savannah, with 28,r
235. In the classified list of the fifty largest
cities in the country the S u1 hern cities occu?
py respectively the followlDg places: New Or- J
leane, No. 9; Louisville, No. 14; Bichmond, No.
24; Charleston, No. 26; Memphis, No. 32;
Mobile, No. 39, and Sivannah barely escapes
the oblivion of omission from the list by
coming in as No. 48.
LIST OF NATIVITIES.
An analysis of the population of Charleston,
according to their places of birth, is somewhat
suggestive. The vast majority of course are
natives ot Charleston, and the proportion of j
inhabitants who are natives of the city is |
much larger than in any of the Northern
cities, all of which possess a large floating or
cosmopolitan population. Next to the South
ern States, the Middle States are found [o con- [
tribute the largest number to the population
of the city, New England coming next, and
the Western States sending bot few. Ol the
foreign residents of the city the Germans and
Irish ot course predominate. England, Scot?
land and France are also well represented,
and twenty-three Poles are found to have
Jumped out of the frying-pan into the fire by
coming to this down-trodden Poland of Ameri?
ca. We have thirty-four Indians, one Turk,
one Maltese, and (what ls strange) one white
African, while there are three who can only
vaguely locate their place of birth "at Bea."

glance all these peculiarities of Charleston's

ANOTHER "CORPUS DELICTI."-Friday night,
about eight o'clock, a white infant, supposed
to be about one day old, was found quietly es?
tablished on the steps ot the porter's lodge of
the Orphanhouse, in Calhoun street. The
little stranger began its travels and adven?
tures by being taken to the Guardhouse,
where it was farmed out by the Mayor, and
became one of the several interesting pro?

Saint Jin u arius caused e very seat In the spa?
cious Cathedral Chapel to be filled last even?
ing, the assemblage Including many persons
not of the Bishop's faith. The chapel was
brilliantly lighted, and Professor Oskar
Alene], the organist, assisted by many accom?
plished musicians of the city, were in the
choir. The exercises were opened with a
grand "Gloria," "Qui TOIHB" and "Quoniam"
lrom Mozart's Twelfth Mass, the whob
strength of the choir coming out In the
splendid double chorus. As the echoes died
away through the church the exquisite tenor
solo from the Creation, "In Native Worth,"
was heard executed In splendid style by Pro?
The lecture excited a lively Interest. The
Bishop told the tradition of the saint, and then
proceeded to describe his visit to Italy and
Naples, his ride by the old Roman way to the
amphitheatre, where the saint and his com?
panions were exposed to the rage of the wild
beasts, and how the latter refused to do lhe
bloody work expected of ?hem. He told his
hearers how he went up the hlil to the narrow
space where the martyrs were beheaded, and
the miraculous blood preserved by one of the
Christians who had buried the bodies ol the
martyrs. The lecturer next described the Cathe?
dral at Naples, and, lastly, the splendid chapel
adjoining and connected with it, where the
liquefaction of the dried blood took place sev?
eral limes In the presence and under the close
inspection of the speaker, at certain periods
In September and May sacred to the memory
of the saint. The lessons to be deduced from
these facts and legends formed the subject of
his closing remarks. The fruitful theme was
skilfully handled, and varied by gorgeous de?
scriptions of Italian scenery and ancient and
magnificent structures which never fail to in?
At the close of the lecture, Professor Senior,
tenor, sang the beautiful solo from the Mes?
siah, "But thou didst not leave His soul in
hell," and the exercises closed with a splendid
and double chorus from Farmer's Mass.
