a' most dreadful cninsiroplio tu Ward School
No. 25, in Grue'nwiah avenue, near Jeffer

sion of the usual form of rumor, not half
iho iruili was told; it was reported down
town that thu stairs of the sclioolliouse had
li ven way unci thut a dozun children was
killed. , This was enough to startle the rest
der.'t'f Utax retio0 of the t'm vtovinart
nwny from hoinc, and nil sorts of vehicles
were at oi.ee summoned to convey them to
the scene of the disaster. '
Uelbro we po further, let us briefly Mat;
the nature mid extent of the disaster
Oncol" our reporters writes it as follows:
The causes of this fearful catastrophe wc
liivu as tratlyully as could be ascerjaiued on
the spot, amid the great excitement and
dense crowd that for hours pervaded the
IXth Ward Police Station, where most of
the mangled' and dead were taken to be re
cognise!1 by their heart-broken parents.
Tin; building where the cutastropho hap
pened is four stories high, the buscrrfeni,
which U on a level with the strcei, is paved
with (liifi-Ktotws, and is the play-room of the
(scholars. The Primary Department occu
pied the se'uuiid floor; the third floor was
used by the more advanced scholars, and
die front set veil as a lecture room and was
us.-d at the exaaiinniions of the school.
It appears that about 2 o'clock, one of
the teachers, u Miss Harrison, was taken
with a fainting fit. and a cry for water was
instiiiu'.y made by some of the children who
worn standing near her. This cry was mis
taken lor that of lire, and tho whole room
was instantly alive with the cry of "fire!
fuel" Tho children rose en masse and
rtn-liul fur the door. The alarm was given
to the other rooms on the same floor, and
comiiiuiiiLMted to those of tlio Principal of
tho K-hi,l and his assistants who occupied
the third floor, and it was generally believed
by all that the building was on fire and ac
cordingly all rushed for tho doors of their
respective rooms. Mr. McNully imme.di-
aiclv placed himself in front of the door of
,,fi rmml Bmi 0rbade any ot his scholars
to leave, and we near mat ono oi ttie otner

other departments rushed out of the door J

and commencing on tho ground floor was

j lite crowd was so dense in a very short
; time, that it wns with great difficulty that

we could not ascertain, but' we append the
iiniin s of thoso who were removed to ihe
Ninth Ward Public Station, and thenco io
the residences of their afllickd parents.
We will hero state more fully iho case of
the first alarm. Miss Abbv Harrison, Prin
cipal of the Female Department, has been
slightly indisposed for a few days, but con
sidered herself quite ublo lo attend to her
arduous duties. At 2 o'clock, vvliilo she

he wns attacked with a momentary paraly
sis of lhe tongue; she tried to speak, but only
made an unintelligible noise; in her effort to
speak her face was drawn into disagreeable
contortions, and her pupils became Irinln
ened, thinking that the w as fainting. Hence
the cry for "water," and immediately after
wuid of "fire," and tho consequent rush for
the doors. Miss Harrisott remained all tho
while comparatively helpless, and ccu'd do
nothing to thecti the alarm.

As each lifeless or wounded body wns borne
to tho Station-house, it would be followed by
a dense crowd of persons, all striving to as

and some distracted mother recognizing the

shrieks of agony were enough to movo the
stoutest heart to carml pity.
