A terrible disaster occurred yesterday after?
noon on tho East River Bridge, by which
twelve persons lost their lives and a great
*B_ny othern were injured more or less seriously.
While there were no less than l.r>,000
larsons on the Bridge, a blockade was formed
cn the footpath at the head of a
flight of steps niue feet high extending
from the masonry above the anchorage to the
fh.st iron true*, the same place at which block?
ade-, of i*eople have occurred heretofore.
A panie followed the pushing and struggling
liv which men and women tried to free thein
?elvis from the crowd. In the midst of
this rush, started, lt is thought by a gang of
roughs, either thoughtlessly or with mischievous
intent, several persons were carried over tho
tdf? of the steps. They fell on thc landing
and at the foot of the stairs,
ethers stumbled on them, and BON
than forty persons were trampled under
foot by the punic-stricken multiuide. It
was a long time before they could
be extricated. They were then placed
in improvised ambulances ami taken
to Chambers Street, New-York and St. Vin?
cent's Hospitals, where many heartrend?
ing scenes occurred. Great excite?
ment prevailed in the city and Brooklyn,
aud exaggerated stories of the' calamity were
apread. Tkiiuxe reporters last night
vi-itcd prominent Bridge Trustees
New-York and Brooklyn and other offi?
cials, and obtained their opinions ns
to the cause of the accident and the
means that must be taken to prevent similar
occurrences in the future. The accident is
attributed largely to the iuelliciency of tiie po?
lice system and the police force of the Bridge.
Vntil the shadow of a croat calamity settled npon
' it yesterday the great Bridge was the most
popular thoroughfare in the city. Tho
few sprinkling showers of rain whit li
fall about noon dui not seem to chook thc ardor of
the thousands who had resolved to devote the- holi?
day to sight-seeing from its height-*, and the cheer?
ful sunshine thut followed Lilied out many nora
who till then had remained housed and snit them
on a siir.ib:ir*erraiid. Until the latter part of tha
afternoon, when overcrowding caused diseoinfoit,
there was no moro delightful place Imaginable than
tho breezy pathway from city to etty, and
none that commanded so magnificent a panorama,
.onie of the brilliant features of oiacuiiig dav
mott repeated,. for th? houser- In tho
Tiiinity hail not yet dolled their
gay decorations, aad the Hags on the shipping at
the wharves fringed tho two eltiei with color. At
inti rvaK daring Hie day processions with bands of
Maia crossed tba Bridge, walking in tho wairo
n av and thus allonling a better view of the soldiery
?ral uniformed civilians than could be obtained any
Ta'liel rise.
'lt: ie was a fatal fascination in all this. It at?
tracted tliousatid-i ami kept them upon tM Bridie,
Tuc Superintendent knew that tba crowd of visitors
to the structure would strain its aeeomaiodotiooa
much more aerioaaly than they had ever baan
?trained before, a.ul lu* mads what Mero suppo-oil
to he aionle preparations for the atm*-. He buiit
additional toU-boxea at eaeh aad and gave
oideis that in eas- ol OYeierowdiOl the title
af travel should bc turned into
the wagoa-ways. as it was on Sunday. Tiie poUoa
foree was nut im r..ised, it h"iu^ supposed tbal
tweuty-four men would be aide to direct the
human stream into proper channels at the
termini, anti prevent loitering in the
mots whoie the temptations would bo
?trongest. lt, was knowu te ba extremely likely
that between 10,000 aad 'jo,ooo petaoaa would li?
on tin- Bridge at unee. imt it was not anticipated
that lim conduct of a small trac'ion of the Bamber
would bring death to a dozen (.mines and su'iern g
te many more.
Th" natural eft. ct of the great crowd of visitors
Md the attractiveness- ol tho Bridge waa steadily
to ri, iv,ise tin- numil,-r upon it. New-York has
always contributed tinny more foo', paaaangera
than Brooklyn, and when tho retwaing
tale met the stream of fresh uriliaN
lin,:; New-York as tho afternoon began 'o draw to a
close, the leetway gradual ly grew aaora and more
ermine 1 and the crowd moy d more and more
? Uggishlv. The iemili was inevitable. With only
cue footway tho Bri I ge is a saunteuug pine:*?a
promenade, on wi,icu ont can spend all day
going lack and forth. Still it WM aol thought
mee.gary to th'.ow tho wagon ways open te
P'destrians. As 0:1 Jinn.lay, the s:t*h*-.o"rs be?
came blockaded mitlway batwaso the New-York
entrance ami tho north th towoi. Then
th" maota! of a aaetton al railing
ead thoopaadag thereby of aa outlet late tbe aide
?eada .ottered tba pia?m Fe terdajr, before thia
was done, there came the panie which raoalted in
-rOrriblaaafMacaad death.
The scene of the diead.nl oecarreaea u just al oyo
the anchorage, a little more than half-way between
ti - (few-York aatranee ami thc Bret tower. 1 'p to

?tapa The path, which is 10 feel and 7 inches
a.'!-.'. is narrowed ?tightly, bal bardy enough to be
Ptn -ptihie to a trowd. ihe aaeeot ia divided 111
thc middle by a landing about. G feet wide.
Tho steps aro nf wood and rather marrow. A sturdy
?tull of m aai ie exteada hon the station te tba Brat
truss on Mah tide of the walk, ana giv-i- linn foot
?h-r-' to an irou lenee that meets the truss
at the foot of the ht airs. Beyond tho
auib is the roadway, twelve feet oi.ht inches wide,
aeataialae the railway tracks, which are laid on
alceiton- and ties in Ihe ordinary aarface foahioe and
ballasted with rubble. In this part of tba
Bringo there wor. vorfcing yesterday a
few riveters'. riggen, machinists and
laborers, A few Illidge pohcemeu
Wen iu the wagonw: is near bf, WaOtt thara aaa
abo a steady stream ol havel.
About 4 o'clock tho crowd pre.t m dense that a
blockale was formed ou the Bridge extend
feg from the load of tho (tatra
hack several rods to the tower. The number
Ol persona who were faced toward New-York was
eoflkit'iuiy large to All the entire width 0f tho walk
and tue comparatirely small stream going from
this cit* hail for a long time been forcing
lteelf through tbe serried ranks that
met lt at the head of the sta! ra.
The oauiw ot the blacliado seems to have
been eulelly the slow movement of the crowd down
tbe stops. There were man** worooa and children
Who made the descent slowly and with great care foi
there ia a suggestion ot .auger lu th* narrow ness ol
the et*pe aud the ?uw--.Iw-im of the wood. With
the teen lona tudu*, from Brooklyn and th.
rapid movement along the uninter?
rupted and descending pathway from
\ the tower, nearly 1,000 feet sway,
the slightetit Interruption to tbe regular flow was
bound to cause a difficulty that would grow greater
with every movement. This is exactly
what happened. beginning with a little
crowding tbat at first caused only
merriment and some Kood-huinored Jostling lt
grew until women began to faint, men to shout and
children to cry with terror. The danger of going
over thc steps in the midst of such a crush dawned
udoii those near tho flight and they began frantically
to push back and shout to the advancing
thousands: "Stand back!" " Give us room!"
and other vain expostulation*.
It waa like trying to atop the tide, for back
of thc struggling bund reds thousands were throw?
ing their weight against tho ever-increas
inu column. Then roenbectino desperate. Tbey
foturht and straggled and added to tho terror of the
women and children. A policeman jumped upon
the chord of tbo truss and. waving his club,
screamed and gesticulated like a madman. Thu
crowd would not understand hun and
could not obey. Stalwart men wearing the
uniform of thc Grand Army of thc* Kcpuhlio
followed the example of tho policeman. Shunts
went up that people wore being killed, and under
tbo trsnsformiBg intluencool terror the report soon
spread lo those furl Uer back Unit something was
the mutter with the Bridge. In the midst
of the excitement the crowd advancing
from Raw-York fell back a short distance and left
an empty sp;.to at the foot nf tho stairs. At tho
same tune a gang of thoughtless rntban**. to whom
tl.'e'cru.sli v. as either uhr sport ot an opportunity
to ply the vocation of pocket-pit -k in ir,
ansivcreil^a command ol "Lat's give 'em the
grand shove," willi a concerted nub toward tho
st.tv. Au old woman who wss at the head nf thc
steps stumbled and fell forward; a younger
woman followed, and tho human avalanche
went OB th-ir ptostrate forms. Boon others
tripped and f"ll and within a few minutes there
were piles i-f crushed ainl I.L edlBg pieces "f human?
ity at thc foot "f each Hight of stairs and the pniiu
sttiti.'ii erowd was trampling them to
