ment, before Oeo. " Taylor, acting
luperlntendlng Inspector genoral of stoara
LoaU ; Wm, Jtosj, impoctor of bull at
Savannah, Georgia, and John K. Edgar,
inipector of boilers at Norfolk. Tbo
main matter of enquiry was
flnt, tbo oquipmont of tho itoamerj
second, the origin of tbo fire; third, tho
conduct oflieonod officori, both prior and
subioquent to tbo alarm being given.
Tto flrjt witnone esamlnod were Jai. 1).
Tawery, inepeetor of hulls and Wm. D.
Saville, inspector of boilora, at Ilaltlmoro,
who rn&do tho last inipection. From
their toUlmony it appeared that tho
iteamor was thoroughly inspect&J in
March hit, and everything which tho law
requires wasfonnd thwe without a single
exception. Capt. Wood of tho "Wawas
ett, at tbo timo , of th alarm
of Cro, iaid he called to passenger to keep
coo), as ho did not see any reason for ex
citement ; he thought there would bo am
ple timo to put out the flro, but in lets
timo than ho could now relate tha fact
the flames bunt out in heavy volumes.
The pilot ra licensed by tbo United
aia-.es, dui mo captain was not.
Ho thought tho Are originated in tbo fire-
umu a iwte, mud no UOUOt UUU UtMiU lm.
ini; for sotno time beforo tho door was
openod, which ave a drnft to tho damos.
Tho engineur was drlron from tbo room
in an instant. Tho raato and clerk gen
erally have charge ot the passengers find
freight, but at tbo time of tbo
fire were srylng to eavo tha
passenger. Nobody was epeci illy attend
ing to tho boats aud lifo preservers, At
the timo of tho flro only ouo passenger
was lost. There wero nn board one hun
dred and twoaty-flvo passenger, not
counting children ; tho liconso showed
that boat waspormitted to carry only llfty
passengers. Tha captain said ho was
under the impression he wa; al
lowed to cairy ono hundrod
and fifty pasiongers, as fitly
passengers would not pay tho ex-
psnsos of tho boat. The boat was well
provided with all appliances for saving
lives. Thcro wero betwoen 400 and 000
lifo-preiervcr?, only two of which wero
known to havo boen usod. Not a soul
would havo boon lost if tho engines had
not suddenly stopped.
Tho clerk, raato, cugincorand a numbor
of tho crow and tovoral paivongcrs were
examined, but nothing now has loon elic
ited. Tbo tOJtimony was to tho ofloct that
thero was no chance for those aft to reach
tho forward part of tho boat, Nono could
toll or oven conjecturo tho origin of the
flro. Tho conduct of tho otlkori was good
throughout. Great caro always had boen
taken to prevent fires, and orders in this
respect wore strict. The pumps
and hoso wore alwaj In good order. Tho
commission adjourned until to-morrow
morning, Capt. Godloy says tho license
producod to-day .allowing only fifty pas
sengers to go on board tha "Wawasott was
erroneous, as bo had in his possession a
permit signod by proper oDIcers, allowing
for this year, as heretofore, ono hundred
and fifty passengers,
