Ono of tho.mast disastrous accidents which has
t ever occurred to a tow of bar gen In the vicinity ol
v ISew York happened oboct a o'clock Bandar morn
, ng In the Lower liar- Out ot a fleet of fifteen
barges only three were savod. All the reat went
to the bottom with their heavy cargoes, which con.
t aUted of tosL On nearly every bargo there were
' women and children, and, although as jet It is not
known that any were lost, It la little short of mlrao-
lous that anybody on board the loat boats eicaped
alive. Tho captain In charge ot iho tow Is rcportod
to havo placed tho number at twenty-one and the
lost at nineteen. ,
Late baturday afternoon a tow of about thirty
barges laden with hard and soft coal arrived at
Uergen Point. They were brought thorb by the
tags Willie and Winnie, of tho Delaware and Ran
tan Towing Company, which Is controlled by the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company. At BergenPolnt
the tow was divided, half of the barges remaining
at the l'olnt, whilo tholotbcr fifteen were made
Into a tow or three tiers, with Oto barges to a tier.
It was blowing nard at mldntgnt when this tow,
which It was decided should go through to New
York, was made up, and. In view of a rough pis
sage, the barges wero tightly lashed together with
unusual care. In tho lront tier wcro the Time
HoghcB, tho Ocean Queen, Iho Florence Moore,
and two others. Theso wcro tho largest barges of
tho fleet, and wcro Intended to break the forco of
the seas from the lighter ones. Somo of them
wcro quite new, and worth from U, ooo to 13, 000
cacli. In tho Ave which made tho second tier was
tho A. C. llanncgan, commanded and owned by
Copt. Albert II. Vcddcr, of South Amboy. Tho
tow was pulled by tho powerful tugllordcntonn,
alio ol tho Delaware and Itarltan Towing Com
pany, ami commanded by Capt. Fagln.
Nejrlr nil tne captains of the brrges are married
men aud live with their families on board their
boats, .Many ot these cabin homes are mted up,
with something like luxury, having line carpets,
food furntturo aud now ana then a piano or an
organ. In a good many Instances tho uaptalns own
(liiebirges on which they lire, and tho boat, tho
furniture and tho llttlo family around him repre-
sents about all Ms earthly tit. Altogether there
must have been in tho neighborhood of Ufty souls
m thu noet when It vts towed from Herges l'olnt
j-aturduy night. Capt. Vedder, of tho A. O. Uan-
HiciMn, told the reporter a thrilling story of the dls-
s cr which befell them. m
B "We had not been nut twenty minutes," ho
(Hild, " before I w'shed we had not come, Sev-
ral of tho ujpuius ot barges uid not want to go,
at Capt. l'agtn, of the lug liordentown, Instated.
((lio wind was from the northwest, nearly north.

Tfcraes In front of me every minute. We see mod

bKh la the cabins asleep and not dreaming that

' Jr By about l o'clock wo all saw that unlets some-
,, Olio w.O dou V7-" 0UU SOdOHB. TUMI,
L vie commenced swinging lights and snouting at
7 ue tops of our voices to the lloruentown to turn
Hi about and run back to Bergen Point. After a long
i time she rteuonded and things oecamo easier. If
; she htd continued her course and gone back to
Uergen Point not a boat would have been lost.
But just as we wero beginning to think we were all
rlgbt again, the liordentown suddenly swnng her
head back to the old courso and made straight for
New York.
" in less than no time the Tillle Hughes in front
of mo had ton ultor ton of water dumped on her
from the heavy seas. Finally, she plunged her
nose right down luto tho waves ana dove straight
to the bottom. I knew then that It was a scramble
lor life. I rushed down into my cabin. Jly wile
was sound asleep and so was my nlue-year-oia
boy. I had them out In a Jiffy and hustled them
ou deck. All my wife was aldo to put on over her
night clothes was an old wrapper. Tho boy had
nothing but his night cloli.ei: Tho llrst toing I
taw when I cot on deck with them was the lights
of a tug which was heading straight for us. It was
very dark and the wind ripped and toro abont as
so wo had to cling with our very cyclahea to keep
Ironi being swept away, livery ininuto or so wo
got a dousing from tno seas which wcro washing
over us. Tne tug wis soon alongside.
1 ' Uow 1 got my wife and child on board her I
hardly know. Hoc was pitching and Jumping
eight or ten feet out of the water and the barge
wasn't much steadier. I stayed behind to try to
save the oarge. I was afraid ot the boats ahead ot
me diving under and pulling me down with them,
, sj I got uu axe an I vvus scrambling forward to cut
.' the lathings to thu Floronce Moore. At that mo-
( mcDt her stcrd shot up In tho air and then dlsnp-
t l eared bonoath the waves. As she weat down the
l.sblngs to my barge snapped or she would ccr
s talnly nave dragged me down wltn her. Tho cup.
tain and icoplo on tho Hughes, which was tho Unit
' to go down, had tscaped to tno iloore, and when
the Moon was swamped they and tne Moore's
eople got to the Ocean Queen.
" While this was going ou the tug which had
rescued in j i wife and child had been going from
targe to barge taking the people off. The women
uid children all over the fleet were now awake and
on deck, and their shrieks and cries seemed all
mound you as though hundreds of people were
struggling In the water In every dirtullon. Iho
' lug was soon crowded with, half-drebsed women
:. and children and with a good many of the barge
captains. This tug proved to be the Wllllo which
huil helped to tow the fleet from Booth Am boy to
Uergen l'olnt. Her people hud become nneasy at
the violence of the gale alter we left the Point, and
put out alter us. About tho time the flrat barge
went down tho Doroentown whittled for assistance
aud ner signals were heard on board the Willie.
Had it not been for her the loss ot life would have
been frlghtfnl.
" Wen, I saw barge after Darge go down all
atouna me, some dragging their neighbors
down with them. But as one barge went down
the people would scramble to another. I soon
had three camalna on my barge and ti was plain
our tnrn was close at hand. Just then the lloarden
town came tow ards us. Iprusheddown intqthe
cabin to see what I could grab hold ol to save and
one ot the captain's came with me."
' Here, " no said, take hold of this. "
"I grabbed hold lot It, hardly noticing what It
wss and wa chocked It on the liordentown. It
turned oat to be a sewing machine. This and tne
clothes I stand lu is everything 1 have left. The
eargi, which was my home, and all my household
goods In u are ut tho bottom of tho bay.
' My wife and I feel the sorest at heart over losing
sn old trunk with a few dollars' worth of clothes
nd trinkets lu It. Well, the clothes and tho trln
sets sod the playthlugs were those of my little boy
&d girl who died a short time ago, ami we thought
jje world of them. My wife shouted to mr, whsa
joe U title drew off with her on board, to save that
trunk, oner, a little later, when l thought my
rgc was going saro, I rue Into the cabin, got
the trunk, and threw It onto tho next barge. That
jefge went down before mlno did and the trunk
went to the bottom with her.

shore and went to pieces, mill another barge aoon
after passed qnlte near the Mozart, but was swept
out to sea, where the heavy waves soon swamped
her. Doth or these bsrges were coal laden and
evidently belonged to the Jlrlawaro and IUrltau
Towing Company's wrecked fleet. At Quarantine
still later on three more coal-lsden barges were
seen. They were about a mile apart and wero
drifting towards tho Narrows. They soon after
went to pieces. Nobody was seen on the bsrges.
Kdward Castldy, n llattery boatman, called at
Tin Would office last evening and made the fol
lowing statement with reference to in Interview
be bad with Capt. Fay, of the tug Dordentuwnt
"The oaptatn says he was coming out of the Kills
with a tow of twenty-one boats. All were loaded
with ooal except one that was loaded with grain
In coming out of the Kills to round HobblnV iteef
the tide was at the ebb, and, added to the wind,
carried him well oat ot hi way, close on to the
Statin Island shore. Tho seas were so
heavy that the barges fllltd with water
and began sinking. As last as they began
going uown the men aboard them would
climb to the next boats and cut them loose with
hatchets. Capt. Fay saw his only salvation was to
get the boats to the flats, where tnsy'd have a good
bottom to sink on, bat In the mlditof It all his
steering gesr gitve out lie drifted down to the
bsrges, blowing his whistle for asslstsnoe, snd the
tug Willie responded and helped savo the men,
women and children on the sinking boats.
"Four of the boats were last seen in the Lower
Day off the west bank. Two were saved and
towed to tho Fort Hamilton dock. The rest went
down In the ohannel between lcobbln'alteet Light
and the lower end of Statcn Ialand. "
lloatman Cassldy added that the tog Parker, be
longing to the same line as the uordsntown, also
lost a barge losded with coal in coming out ot the
Kills Saturday night. The barge went down atern
first between Uergen Folnt and liobbln'a Heel Light,

NO NEW OABES AND NO DEATHS.
BucU I the Yellow Fcrer Ilullelln from the
Cruiser Itoston.
Tbcro need be no anxiety regarding the prcieneo
of yellow fever on board the new crntier lloston,
which arrived from Port au Prince, Uaytt, Satur
day morning. There have been no new oases since
the 10th Inst. Ot tho four men who died It
Is more than probable that two of thorn would havo
lived had It not been for the continuous rolling and
pitching of tho ship in a four-days' galo of wind.
Tho two seamen, Thomas and Mitchell, who are
now recovering, will be tranitcrrcd to the quaran
tine hospital Immediately. Surgeon W. L blmon,
tho only remaining Invalid, Is too weak to be moved
at present. He nas had no fever for three days,
and would recover were it not tor extreme weak
ncsi and danger from failure of tho heart. Ills die
hai been a peculiarly trying one. .nc has been sick
ten days, and the motion of the ship t really tsxed
his strength and prevented his retaining nourish
ment. As soon as tho ship ran Into smooth water
his condition improved, and It Is hoped that ho may
yet recover.
1 hero Iibb been no panic among the officers or
crew ot tho lloston, and there wcro numerous vol
unteers to nurse the sick, some of whom had Had
previous experience with the disease. Tucso vol
unteers rendered lalthfnl service.
It Is Impossible to account for tho slcknrsi on
bosrd the boston. In none of the ports visited
wero tao meaallowed to leave the ship, and pre
vious to the visit to Pott au Frinco there had becu
no sickness ol any kind on board the ship. At
l'ortau l'rluce, whloh has a reputation for yellow
fever, tho precautions wero doubled. Tho only
explanation that can bo given Is that those at
tacked were peculiarly susceptible to the climatic
influences that produce tho fever.
Tuo lloston will be carefully fumigated aud
frozen out, and In view ot all that naa been done,
and from the fact also that no new cases have ap
peared lot six days, It may be positively stated that
the trouble Is over.
Whenrthe lloston left Port en Prince there was
no anro Indication as to the probable result of the
-fasitlrtittv 7rHsvJaattanHavtlan;ttepobuo The
three northern provinces still refuse to support the
present UovernraeuySl Port au Prince, whloh was
established by the revolution a few weeks ago. if
the North had arms it is certain tnst there would
be open war between the sections. Dot they are
deficient In arms and munitions of war, and the
navy,1 controlled by the existing Government,
blockades their ports and diminishes the chances
ot their obtaining war material from abroad.
Whether tho South will attempt to subjugate the
North, or win seek to win them over by offering
concessions, 1b a matter of conjecture. It would
seem, however, that the latter coarse may be fol
lowed In preference to the former for poiitlo rea
sons. In fact, a small beginning haa already been
made by gaming the support of a few disaffected
Northerners, who were captured with the Amer
ican steamer Uaytlan liepubllo Oct. XL Thero la
also a chance that the two sectlona will agree to
separate, and establish two republics.
aids sectional trouble in Haytl has been a great
source of annoyance and trouble to neutral traitors,
ctpeolslly to tho New Ungland i merchantmen.
'1 here wcro several American achooners at Port
au Prince waiting for developments, and at a loss
to know what to do under the circumstances,
bomo of them hsd cargoes in the blockaded ports
that had been purchased beforotho blockade was

ties would ceaso and enable them to sail for home.
Health Officer smith, or the quarantine station,
made a trip to the lloston early yesterday morning.
On account ot tho terrible w esther a second trip
iwas not made, although Dr. Smith was to havo
? oao over in tho afternoon. To a reporter of Tub
Voran he said thstlt would be nn Impossibility for
bis boat to approach the lloston.
