THE GREAT TRAGEDY.
Full Particulars Obtained on the Spot.
Statement of the President of the Road.
THE NUMBER OF THE DEAD.
CONDITION OF THE WOUNDED.
THE LOCALITY OF THE CATASTROPHE.
The place where the tragedy occurred, which
has carried such deep sadness into the homes
of so many, is situated midway between the
villages of South Bend and Mishawaka, and
about two miles from either place. There is a
ravine somo thirty teet deep trom the surface
of the track, and seventy-five to one hundred
feet wide. ' Under the traok was a culvert,
about nine feet by seven. The wator passing
through it is generally, dunng the wet season,
not sufficient to fill the eolvert half full. Dur
ing tho fierce storm wbioh prevailed on Monday
evening, the passage through the culvert be
came interrupted, and the water on the south
or npper sldo suiaonly rinsed to tno height of
fifteen or twenty feet, or within five or eight
feet of the surface of the track. The track rest
ing on a sandy foundation, the action of the
water bad toe etteot to nndermine, and proba
bly before the train reached the fatal spot the
track bad been partly carried away, and the
train took the terrible plunge into the abyss
below, almost completely burying it in the
quicksand and mud. The soene which followod
it is out of our power to dosoribe, but those
who were compelled to witness it, Bay that it
was an event which no man should be oalled
upon to witness bat once in a life-time. The
tnght was oioar, out tne ravine being smrtea
by woods and the high banks, it rros impossi
ble to distinguish objects, and any a' J rendered
by those who escaped death or sevtre Injury,
oould only be by the aound of the groans of
the sufferers. Bo tierce was the oononslon, and
so terrible the screams of the wounded and
dying, that the sound thereof wan distinctly
heard at Misbawaka, a distance ot two lull
milos. When these sounds reached the ears of
the citizens, a large number of whom were in
the streets (they having been called up by a
fire in the village), they immediately started
en mane for tho soene of the disaster, with lan
terns and every thing that would probably be
needed to relieve the wounded: and trom that
time until the boar of leaving last evening,
every door has been thrown open to the suf
ferers, and every thing which human ngeney
could accomplish has been done by tho citisens
for the relief of the unhappy victims. They
deserve the enduring regard of the sutterors and
The following is the statement of lion.
George Bliss), f resident of tho Road, who was
on the tralrat the time of the accident:
GEO. BLISS'S STATEMENT.
On the night of the 27th inst., a very severe
rain storm of several hours' duration accumu
lated a lafgo body of water in what ia nsually
a dry gorge is summer, midway between South
Bend and Misbawaka, and carried away a
stone arch culvert of nine feet span, with an
embankment of about twenty feet over it,
between 10 and 12; o'clook. The nigbt
was very dark and the train came on as usual
at about the latter hoar, containing a baggage
oar, an emigrant passenger oar, one seoond-
olass oar, and four nrst-oloss passenger ears,
the last one of wbioh was a sleeping oar all
tolerably well filled and every berth in tho
Sleeping car occupied with an unusual number
of women and children. The whole train
plunged into the gorge. The baggage, emi
grant and second-olass ear fell nearly upon the
engine and tender, which were buried quite
out or sight in tne sand and water or tne
stream, now from three to aix or eight feet
deep, the foremost three of the first-class cars
fell further into the stream, and not on top
of each other, but partially on their sides,
and were entirely orushed. The sleeping ear
fell Insidaof - the others, right side ap, careen
ing a lfrtJa in three or four feet of water, but
was1 ojs; jjatively Very little injured tho lamp

the tsjtW '(Jrs in this oar were seriously in

STATEMENT OF A. J. PERRY, OF NEW YORK.
I was in the sleeping car with my wife, wife's
sister, Mrs. JUakio, infant and nurse. When
the sleeping car went into the ravine it turned
completely round. The UrBt knowledge I had
of tho disaster, I found myself in tho water
full throe feet deep. It was some moments
before the oar maintained its position, and
thon I called to my wifo and her sister and
Durse, and found them all alive, I first car
ried out the Infant up to the top of tho bank,
then my wife and Mrs. Dakin, then a strange
infant, and after that its mother. By the time
I bad accomplished this, I wont down to the
wator, and found that tho torrent bad subsi
ded it boing not more than a foot deep,
Thero was no person killed in the sleeping oar.
although it was so reported. Lost all my bog-
gage and all my clothing except what 1 had on
as did Mrs, Dakin, my wife, nurse and in
STATEMENT OF FRANCIS DAKIN.
Am from Ereeport, 111. Was on board the
train, in company with Miss Moore, sister-in-
law, also of , Frecport. Was in the car next
forward of the sleeping car, and when we went
over the precipice, tbe one oar was completely
domoluhed not a piece exceeding fil'teeo feet
in length could be found. The first knowledge
1 had after the fall, I found mysolf up to my
middle in the water. At that moment, a stick
01 timber or something else struck me and
went under tbo water. When I rose to tbe
surface, I found myself between the sleeping
oar and another car, which must have passed
completely over me, as 1 was on the opposite
side of it from where I went down. I grasped
hold of the car and clambered on tbe top. I
then discovered Miss Moore in the water, with
a strange inlant clinging around ber nock
This infant was the son of Mrs. Iluggins,
wmcn sue natt thrown out ot tbe window pre
vlously, to save it I then assisted Mies
Moore to the shore, with tho infant, and after
wards an old lady. Lost my hat, and had my
pantaloons ontirely torn oil from my body
Miss Moore was badly bruised on her face, but
nothing serious. Khali go to Now York to
BENJAMIN BRADFORD'S STATEMENT.
I am from Monticello, Maine. Was on the
train when the accident occurred, in the sleep
ing car. Was somawhat braised, but not seri
ously. . Was asleep in my berth when tho train
went into the gorge. Did not wake up until
the water oauie into the ear. When I got out
of the car the water was not more than twelve
or fifteen inches deep in the ravine, so suddenly
did it fall. A maa who lay in the berth oppo
site me fell out on the floor and lay there
until daylight In a faiut condition, when he
was taken out and removed. I am of the
opinion that the embankment was mostly gono
before the ears reached the
GEO. TOMLINSON'S STATEMENT.
Was In the car ahead of the sleeping car
when the acoident occurred, bnt tbe moment
the car struck found myself outside, in wuter
three or tour toot deep. A splinter hit me in
the face and I went under. When I arose I
was between two cars. Oot on top of one.
The ear swung completely around after I got
oa it. I then jumped from it on to another
car, tbenoe to the tender, and then ashore.
While I was getting on to the second car I
heard one terrible shriek from a number of
voioea some distance down tbe stream, and then
all was hushed. In thioe minutes after I had
got on shore, the water in tbe ravine had al
most entirely disappeared, so that I oould walk
from the shore to the car. I think the jar of
the train as it approached started the track, and
that when the engine went down, it wentdown
with tbe track. I feel bound to say that the
women behaved most bravely during this try-
ing time, - exhibiting a heroism worthy of re
cord. - The scene of tbe calamity presents a horrid
aspeot. The looomotive the George Bliss
nntil yesterday afternoon, was almost complete
ly buried in tho sand, and frageinenl of the
machine and oara were aoattered iu every di
rection. The baggage, emigrant and all tbe
passongor cars, except the sleeping oar, are a
complete mass of splinters. Tbe sleeping ear
is very little injured. It is said that it went
down so easily that the lights in it were not
A portion of tho dead and wounded were
taken to the South Bend and Misbawaka, and
others to the farm-houses close at hand. Finally
all the dead bodies were taken to tbe latter
named plaoe, where an iuquot was hold, but
when the train loft last evening, no decision
had been rendered. At that time full five hun
dred persons were at tbe soeue of tho disaster,
engaged in digging for dead bodies, but no ad
ditional ones bad been discovered. It is feared
that a number were washed into the St. Joseph
River, a short distanoe below, by the foroe
the current through, tbe ravine, bat a pretty
thorough aearoh failed to discover any,.
, Upon the best information that could be ob
tained, it waa thought that but thirty-five
bodies bad been discovered in all. Add to
tbia, tbe body of Mr. Sumner's daughter, not
yet discovered, and four wounded that will
probably die, and the aggregate mortality
this terrioio Oleaster win be lorty.
There are many Intensely interesting Inci
dents oonneoted with tbia sad affair which we
should like to give, but tbe lateness of the hour
and the crowded state of our columns for
We eannot close without rendering our
thanks to the generous proprietora of the Mill

Tbe War in Italy The Armies Pressing
on Towards the Stratkoio Square. The de
tails of tbe news by the Arabia, though reveal
ing the fact of no new battle, represent the
Audtrians as receiving reinforcements from Vi
enna, the corpt d'armee of the ArchdudeCbarloh

Italy. A large oorps of Austriana is also said
to have arrived in 'he Valtelline, whioh Gari
baldi had previously revolutionized. There u
no further news of the advance of the Allies :
but doubtless they are pressing on towards the
Juinoio, behind which the Austrian! intend tc
mako their last grand stand. Meantime the
French, it appears, are about to attempt a
fl ink movement on the enemy by sea from
Venice through the medium of their fleet in tht
Adriatic. The design of the French Euaperot
is olearly to assault tbe Austrian fortresses be '

war on the side of Austria. We look upon
this statement, however,' with some distrust
That proposals for peace will follow the next
uoeuive batue, is quite probable- tbat tbty
win do successful is very doubtful.
Meanwhile no Important strategic movement
has ooourred sinoe last accounts front the seal
of war. The strong reinforcemonU whioh the
Austriana have received, hnwavoi. mat, render
the contiiot w fitch is about to take plaoe a more
bloody and tedious one than was anticipated,
