Lawrenck, Mass., Jan. 10.
One or the most terrible catastrophes on
record occurred in thisciiy this afternoon.
The PViuherton mills lell with sudden
crash at out five o'clock, while tome sit or
seven hundred operatives were at work.
The mills are a complete wrt-ck 8"me
two or tlir e hundred persons are suppo
sed to be still in the ruins. At present,
it it to os-il le to uive anything like a oor
teot statement of the los of life, but from
the best authority It is believed that about
twolundred are dead in the ruins. Eight
esn dead bodies have been already taken
U , together with some twenty-five per
sons mortally wounded, besides some fifty
in diflerent stages of mutilation. Mr.
Chase, t e auenl of the milln, and Mr.
How, the treaau er, escaped by running
lioui the tailing building. It is impoiaihle
as yet to tell the cause of the disinter.
Our rnporter has just come from the ruins
and the scenes there beggar all description.

Every few minutes some poor wretch is
drained from his or her prison, and It is
heart rending to hear their ories as ill
are drawn out, with legs and arms orush
ed or torn. One man shockingly mangled
and partly under the bricks, dtilihetately
out his throat to end his agony, the
whole city seems in mousing. Many are
running through the streets and with fran
tio ories so-irubing the ruins. Temporary
hospitals have been arranged fur those

conscicuous and active in direotins those
persons who are endavoiing lo res.iue the

with ropes below ate Constantly dragging

prison so many, bo e of the rescuers are
killed in their hum ne efforts. Since we
left the Scene of disaster, reports ol more
of tho dead and dying ate constantly
coming to us. Surgeons are coming
from all directions, and everything that
