THE LEXi::GTOJJ-FUnTIIER PART'C-
The New Haven Herald savs:
I he hre was discovered a little
o'clock, under a tier of cotton Lales niUH
amidships, against the wooden box or
frame which enclosed the pipe leading
from the fire-room below, the boat having
her boiler on her kelson, or under declf.
This pipe led through the freight above',
and the ignition of the cotton had become
so extensive before the fire engine 'and
nose of ifis boat could be put in operation,
that both crew and passengers were so ov
erwhelmed by smoke and the natural ag
itation of the moment, that all efforts to
subdue the fire were unavailing.
The Lexington is supposed to have
been commanded by Capt. Childs, with
the crew before employed in the Narra
gansett, nearly all of whom perished
with the pasrengers. We also learn that
there were but 5 or G ladies on board, one
of who-n was seen in the water with a
dead infant at her breast.
The Journal of Commerce of Thurs
day morning gives the following addition
al paiticulars:
About 1500 extra copies of our extra of
vesterday containing the news, were call
ed for at the desk, by persons eager to as
certain the fate of friends and relations, as
well as by many others, from whom, and
by inquiring at the different Hotels, we
have ascertained the names of the greater
part of the passengers, which will be
found below. We do not suppose the list
is complete, nor would it be strange if it
should contain some errors. We have
however done our best to make it correct,
a3 far as it goes. It comprises, including
children, 72 passengers, only one of
whom, (Cap?. Billiard, of Norwich,) is
known to be saved ; and 33 persons at
tached to the boat, only two of whom
are known to be saved". Total, 105.

passengers, and that he replied 70 to 75.
It was about eight hours after the fire
commenced, before the boat went down.

Mr. Maxham : The subject of the
above was Rosanna Lynch an athletic
trirl of about twenty-two years of a?e!
She had resided in this town nearly six
months, and was regarded as good hired
help but reported to ha'e been at peri
ods addicted to drunkenness. She Ija'd
however, in this place been so catious a
to conceal this vice from the family where
she resided. She was frequently absent
in the evening, but was uniformly at her
residence before ten o'clock.
On Saturday evening last, she return
ed nt about half past nine. She attended
to her ordinary domestic concerns for the
night, and was heard to go into her bed
room at ten or eleven. In the morning,
Jan. 19th, she was found dead by the side
of the bed, her head lying on the edge of
the bed, her body sustained on her limbs,
and feet resting on the floor, with her
body inclining against the bedstead.
Her ordinary dress was on, and laced
very tight! Partially under her face,
and between the beds, was found a pint
bottle, about three-fourths hilled with
rum.
On the body there were no marks of
violence. The face was livid and the
cutaneous vessels engorged with blood.
Oa opening the head, the skull wnslound
to adhere uncommonly strong to the du
ra matter, and on one side of the longi
tudinal sinus, near the vertex, the dura
matter appeared nearly or quite as hard
as caatilage The blood vessels on the
surface, and within the brain,' were crowd
ed with blood. The medullary substance
on being cut" was immediately bespan
gled with blood. The choroid plexus on
each sidewas surcharged with livid blood,
and each ventricle contained a considera
ble quantity of tbin fluid colored with
blood. Tiijs fluid when fiang into the
fire, burnt with a slight flame, aDd even
when considerably diluted with the blood
which was discharged largely from the
vessels of, the brain it appeared to burn
with a small blaze." The common blood
when projected into the fire, exhibited no
appearance of.burning with a flame.
1 he odor of rum was very perceptibly
evolved from the brain near ihe ventricles.
A his odor was observed, by five or six
'ndividdals. It was mostjperceprible, dose
to the brain but could be discovered as
far as six or seven inches distance.
With those facts before them, the sub
scribers formed the conclusion that the
deceased came to her death from Apo
plexycaused by drinking spirits.

MidJIebury, Jan. 20. 1840.
From the Northampton Courier.
The snow storms of this winter have
exceeaed, m depth and intensity, anything
within the recollection 0f our oldest in
habitants. jn the vallev. the snow lies
two ieet upon a level, good measure, but
m the towns west of n:, located upon the
e.evations which incline toward the sum
mit level of the lofty Berkshire moun
tains, n wiil average, so say intelligent
witnesses four feet upon the ground. In
fact, even to this hour, many roads remain
unbroken; the depth of snow being such
as to prevent all intercourse of the iso
lated inhabitants with each other, except
on snow-shoes. j
The breaking onen of th tnnrta
that animals alone could pass, occupied
j,o, uuu unveiling witn sleighs is
now tedious and disagreeable. In many
places, the depth of the snow is so o-reat,
amounting to fifteen feet in some spots,
that a track has been beaten down upon
the summit, and the travel goes over the
tops of the lofty snow-banks. In Ches
terfield, we have been informed, a man
died, and so shut up was his family by
the depth of the snow, that four days
expired before th'ev could reach their
neighbors with the intelligence.
We could fill a column of narration,
describing the tedious process of mails
being disinterred by farrrers and oxen,
and stages detained by the snow, with
passengers, through live-long nights, in
passing from village to village. Of hors
es getting into deep drifts and struggling
until the vehicles were broken and the
drivers exhausted, and finally being left,
until help could be procured, miles dis
tant, to come to iheir rescue. Of individ
uals, both on foot and on horseback,
nearly perishing in attempting to pass
from only one neighborhood to another
by unexpectedly getting beyond their
depth and exhau-ting themselves with
vain efforts to obtain succor or extricate
themselves.
People in towns and cities, with well
broken roads and even shoveled foot-paths,
can have no conception of the depth of
snow, and fatigue of travelling in the
country, where banks, like 'VAlps on
1 i i
Aips arise, blocking up the roads and
rendering the farm-houses invisible to
near neighbors.
Loss of a Ship by Fire. The ship
Harold, of Boston, was destroyed by fire,
at sea, Oct. 26th, in lat. 4 30 S., and long.
26 25 W., and five persons were drown
ed. She was bound from Calcutta to
Boston, and had a large and valuible
cargo. The fire, was discovered at eight
in the evening. Ten persons gat into
the long-boat and got clear. Eight got
into the jolly-boat, but before they could
clear themselves of the ship the heat
became so intense, that thev threw them
selves overboard. Three" of the eiht
were p.cked up by the longboat, but the
other five could not be found. After
being seven days in the boat, they reached
the coast of Brazil, about thirty miles
north of Pernambuco. ZiorCs Herald.
Reduction of Postage. The Post
Master General, in his annual report
recently nude, states that the radical
change in the rates of postage on Letters
recently adopted in Great Britain, his
attracted much attention in the U. States,
and that to enable him to furnish Con
gress with information on that subject,
and on all others connected with the post
office establishments in several of the
most considerable European countries, he
has despatched one of the "special agents
ofthe Post Office Department in Europe,
with instructions to visit them in person,
and furnish minute details of their organ
ization and operations. He states 'that
many documents, and some interesting
particulars have been received from hinT,
but no detailed report. As soon as such
a report is received, it is to be laid before
Congress. ZiorCs Herald.

Steamer Belle of Missouri Burnt
By the steamer Susquehana, from Cin
cinnati, we have the following- account of
the burning and explosion of the 'Belle.'
"December 25:h, passed Belle of Mis
souri, wooding on the Illinois side, near
Cape Girardeau. We ran up to a wood-
yard, on the opposite side, about 2 miles
above, and whilst making our lines fast.
discovered the Belle'to be on fire. We
immediately hauled our lines in. and ran
down to within a quarter of a mile of
ner, ana rounded too. We were hailed
from the Belle and told she had powder
on board. A few minutes afterward, the
.
powder exploded, making a tremendous
report. On running down to the boa:
we lound her stern completely blown
away, and the hull sunk in about seven
feet water. The books and papers, and
everything, excepting the monev. belong
ing to the boat, and a small quantity of
oaggage, oeionging to passengeis, were
destroyed. Fortunately no lives were
lest.
" We lay along side of the Belle, until
about 12 o'clock. Took on board all her
cabin passengers and part of the deck
pasengers.
"The fire caught in the stern, either
on deck or in the hold."
We have received several highly inter
esting accounts of the terific explosion at
the burning of the Belle. One says th.it
it is supposed that there were nearly 150
kegs of gun-powder on board; and that
the explosion very nearly resembled an
earthquake. The water was very much
agitated, and the Susquehannah steamboat
trembled like a leaf. A log house, which
stood on the bank, near the river, was
partly unroofed, and the chunkings be
tween the logs were shaken out. Pieces
of the wreck were thrown to an immense
distance.
When the alarm was given, 3 German
girls, deck passengers, who were travel
ling with a protector, exhibited a little of
the spirit and energy for which the sex is
celebrated. They seized the large trunks,
containing, probably, all their worldly
store, and succeeded in getting them safe
ly on shore. What is still more remark
able, this, we understand, was the only
baggage saved by the deck passengers.
It would be well if others, in circum
stances of danger, would emulate the
presence of mind displayed by these poor
German girls.
We consider it a most gracious inter
position of providence that this terrible
accident occurred while the boat was
taking in vood thus affording ihe pas
sengers an opportunity of getting on shore.
Hid it happened in the middle of the
river, the consequences must have been
indeed most awful a3 the coldness of
the water, and the floating ice wqqj

Ye mourning saints, whose summing tears'
Flow o'er your children dead, .
Say not, in transports of deopair,
That all your hopes are fled.
While, cleaflng to that darling dast,
In fond distress ye lie.
Rise, aud, with joy and reverence,
A bearenly parent nigb.
I'll gire the mourner, faith the Lord;
In my own house a place :
To name of daughters and of sons
' Could yield so high a grace.
'Transient and rain is every hop
A rising race can grre ;
In endless honor and delight,
My children all shall live.
We welcome, Lord, those rising tears.
Through which thy facs we see i
And bless those wounds, which, tbrongh"
