Cabrera's deort in tbe provinces, where be commanded for Don Carlos during tbe civil war, are not yet forgotten, and tbey were of a kind not likely to gain strength to tbe cause whloh the Liberal Uulon has pro claimed. Indeed, Cabrera's name would add uolhlng to any except unmitigated Carllsm; and I doubt that there Is a spot In Spain in which this flourishes. Moreover, Gbrara has Jong since become habituated to olvlllaed life, and la bis circumstances would batdly care to resume a career whloh he quitted eight and twenty years aifo. The papers fbat me Dili n tue Interview between liulce and Cabrera do not say where It occurred. 1 bave already mentioned tnat the first intima tion of tbe plot, wninh was to take effect towards tbe middle of tbe present month, came from the French Government, who were In formed by tbelr aaents on tbe frontier and else where of wbat was going on. No doubt thla Government acted like a good neighbor, oat lis teal was a good deal quickened by the facto! a Pricceof the Orleans lamily being looked up to by those wbo were at the head of it I do not ray with his consent s the ful are sovereign of Bpain. Notwithstanding tue numerous arrests that bave been nude, and tbe banishment, of course without Judgment or trial of aoy kind, I much doubt whet her tbe Government has the clue ol the conspiracy in Its hands. It has more ramiflcailous in lhe army than It is probably aware of; and It has extended among tbe more influential of tbe middle class of civilians. There Is, bovever, one observation lobe made respecting certain of the military leeders. Waatever may be Bald of Queen Isabella, personally or politi cally, 11 Is certain I bat some of the men who are descilbed as planning her overthrow are precisely those who bave been loaded with favors by ber far beyond their merits. Tbe highest military rank, booora, titles of nobili ty, all bave, up to almost the very last moment, been bestowed npon them with a profusion which no other country affords an example of. In Bpain conspiracy and conspirators have long lost the odious significance which else where attaches fo tbem. Those marshals, aud geneials, and grandees, and grand crosses.no tionbl believe tbey are fighting for the good of tbelr country In what tbey propose, but tbey tbould begin by resigning into the hauds tbat save them so recently wnat were long the ob jects of tbelr ambition, and If there be any pei sons who have a right to conspire against tbe Queen, tbey ere not tbe dukes, and mar quises, aud marshals, and Golden Fleeces of re cent creations. itaTy.

I cannot add mnoh without going Into unnecessary details aa to wbat baa already been telegraphed to yon. The flood has entirely subsided. It was in all respect as destructive as heretofore represented. Facts now ascertained, prove It even more so with reference to damage to property, though the losa of life In oar city, thas far ascertained. Is Dot so great. Only five or six dead bodies are found, three of them unknown. The fear la, however, tbat many others have been lost and swept off nto the basin. The damages to Individuals and firms, In many Instances, vary from five to ten, fifteen, twenty, thirty, and fifty thousand dollars These are merchants, manufacturers, members of forwardlng-houses, eta The heaviest lossesi however, are amongst tbe poor shopkeepers, etc, who had their all iwept away.

Thousands of persons are at work to-day cleaning cellars, stores, etc., and fixing np. Tne Mayor Is authorized to em ploy forces for this purpose. The City Council was In session last night but did nothing defi nite except authorize repairs to bridges, etc Nearly all the bridges on the Northern Cen trsl Railway for fourteen miles out are gone The trains, however, ran to and from Coo key s vllle from the northward, and the bridges on the Baltimore and Ohio Road beyond Ellloott City were greatly damaged and oarrled away. Tbe cars rnn to Washington, bat not west, ward. The details of the destruction and loss of life at Ellloot's Mills, now called Ellloot City, are appalling. The water rose suddenly to ten feet higher than was ever before known. Gam brell's lower Patapsoo Hoar-mill was swept away, and with it two men, one named William Steel, and the other Bayder. Mr. Bteel was afterwards seen clinging to a log. and It is said was saved. Gambrell's upper mill was par tially destroyed. Tbe extensive granite cotton mill of Besjamln Deford, said to have cost $160,000, is a total ruin. In it Mr. MoUauley, a night watchman, lost his life. Gray's large granite cotton factory has been considerably damaged. The house of Mr. Boone, the super intendent of the works, and the gardener's house are goajo, but their families were saved' The entire row of houses between the turn pike bridge and the Patapsoo Mills are all swept away. Dr. T. B. Owlng's new house was carried by the water across the alley whloh divides It from Palmer's row, and his wife and six chil dren climbed to tbe roof of Mr. William II. Fountain's dwelling, there only to await de struction In a few minutes. The flood carried off tbe bouse of Mr. Fountain, who is the head miller at Gambrell's mill, himself, wife, and daughter, tbe wife and six children of Dr. Owing who had there sought protection, and four colored servants.

He has only two children left, who were away from home. Tbe stores of George T. Bradley and Joseph n. Lelpher, with all their goods, are gone. Mr. Lelpher succeeded In savlag his books. The body of a lady was rescued from the water at Ilchester. Bbe was not quite dead, and every effort was made to revive her, but yery little hopes of her recovery were entertained.

Un baturday atieruoou a fiigntfnl disaster took place at tbe termlnua of the Oakland Kail road, at the extreme outer end of tbe wharf, wblcn bas reoently been considerably extended towards dtep water. The half-past 4 o'clock train, coming towards Ban Francisco, had reaobed tbe end of tbe wharf, and the heavy drawbridge, or suspended gangplank, com monly known as "tbe apron," had been let down from the wnarf to tbe lower deok of the b.AAnAaM T." 1 tAnltan ml, an a na.fa.1. rnuh . n get ou board occurred, tbe train baring been uet'Selv oiowded and everybody In baste to' get back to Han Francisco, suddenly, as the crowd on "tbe apron" was the densest, qnite a number of passengers having already got on board, there came a crash, and those who bad reached tbe deck on looking back were horror-struck to see tne draw haugtng at a right angle with the wharf, and the water filled with men, women, and children, sirug glirgfor lile, while tbe women on board the steamer and on tne wharf wbo had children and oiber relatives in mortal peril, reut the air with tbelr sbrleks of terror. Tbe scene was appalling bey nd description, and tbe excitement on all sides waa almost inconceivable. There were among Ibe passengera by tbe train n large de putation of tbe Garibaldi Guard, oomposed of lioHnna Bhftl.ufl hu.ti In. u b 1 11 1 1 1 1 If. n.i. I n intht celebration, and a number of these brave fellows, without a moment's heHltat ion, plunged into tbe water, and, swluimlug amoug the PlJUpallUB IUMPD.CU Ul.llj ItUlUOUiniV death by lashing tbem to the plies witn pieces ol rope, wbere they remained until rescued by boats, or were drawn np by ropes to tne wharf. , A boat from tbe steamer, lu charge of the steward and another man, was lowered, but was Immediately stove aud filled with water. They, however, rescued two ladles and several men, wbo were obliged to climb on tbe paddles of the wheel, from wnlcu tbey were taken on deck, as the boat waa in a sinking condition. Life i.reservers, planks, etc., were thrown over by parties on tue boat and those on tbe wharf, and some were saved In this manner. One little boy, while In the water, being luoklly able to swim, cangbt hold of a little girl and kept her afloat nntil be was seized by a man wbo reached down his hand to draw tbem np. At tills instant a man in thewaier oangtit the boy by tbe leg, and said, "Don't be scared, sonny don't struicgle-you hold on to that man's band and we can all be saved," and all tbree remained thus together until finally res ensed. J. 8. Davis, a boy attending the Oak laud College, bad Just stepped on tbe plank as It fell. He aucceeded in saving two women, and was ultimately rescued by meana of a rope thrown to blm from tbe wbarf. lie was seized twice by a drowning man, wno .irew him under each time. Wben tbe water bad been cleared, and no more were left to be rescued, the boat left tbe wbarf and returned to tne city. None of the bodies of the drowned had then been re covered, and In tbe confusion and uncertainty, no one knew how many or who were drowned or mlKSlnif. ., . Yer.terday morning the Italian fishermen, to Wbom unbounded credit is due, went to work with energy to recover lueb'idlenof the victims. Two men in the employ of the railroad and ferry companv. with a boat, also aided in the searob. The Italians during the d iy recovered eight bodies and tbe others two mote, making tan In all.' At 10 o'clock a cannon was brought down to tbe wbarf and fired, whlou aided in tbe recovery of tbe noil leu. Tne platform, apron, or drawbridge, wi.loU fell, is U by 21 feet in else, and fastened to tbe wharf by heavy Iron binge at one side, and tbe onter edge Is supported by chains which pass over pnlly wlieela with heavy weights lo balance It. Tbe platform la raised and lowered by a wind lass, and to tre vent It failing too low ratobet wheels are used fo bold the apron in the place to which it bas been brought bv tbe windlass. Tbe immediate cause of tbe accident was un doubtedly tbe breaking of a onto of tbe left hand ratcbel; tbls threw the whole weight oa the chain on tbe other side, and the strain waa to great that it broke tbe lent staple wbloa fastened tbe chain to Ibe weight; tbe ratchet whs thrown completely out of gear, aud did not raich at tbe seennd tomb, thereby letting the chain ont in full, and, throwing tne whole welgbton tbe second chain, broke tbe band which fastened It to the platform, and let It fall bodily between tbe wbarf and the boat. There may be a doubt aa to whether this draw, or apron. Is of tbe style best adapted to protecting tbe lives of paiaeuaers, but tbeacoldent seems to bave been tbe result of no unnecessary care lessness,aor from tba lack of any precaution ngainst darger which could be foreseen by the employes of the Company.
