Another of thoee (hooking and disastrous collisions,
rMulLiua in a serious loaa of life, which every now and
(kin startle the community and eeud the Jifeblood
freestng through the reins, occurred on Long Island
Soand yesterday morning, at about fifteen minutes
before four o'clock, between the large steamer City of
Norwich and the schooner General 8. Van Vllot . The
nod dent occurred during the prevalence of a slight fog,
while the veeeals were etandlag upon opposite courses,
ad when they were nearly ah reset of Huntington light.
Kteven live* are supposed to have been lost, and five or
tlx persons were eeverely Injured. The following fhcts
(elating to the disaster are gathered from those on board
it the different vessels:?
TBI STB A MIR UNDER WAT.
The steamer City of Norwich was one of the Urge
freight boats belonging to the Norwich and New York
Transportation Company, and as s general thing carried
but fbw passengers. She left Norwich, Connecticut, j
sad or the command of Captain D. B. Sturgeon, at one
'dock on Tuesday afternoon, with a small amount of
Jf freight and half a dozen passengers, hound for New I.onJK
dan. where she was to receive the balance of her
cargo. A pleasant aall of thirty-one miles down the river
^B Thames brought the vessel to her destination, where a
^B large and valuable froigbt was awaiting shipment on

A' the transference of merchandise to the hold and deck of
iSL one of our large Sound steamers was accomplished with
the usual and proverbial Yankee dash and energy, and
half-past nine o'clock the City of Norwich was loaded
hnaost to her guards. At ten o'clock, after taking a fow 1
v. more passongers on board, which made eleven in all, the
fines were cast off, and, under a pressure of twenty-two I
hounds of steam, the vessel started on her regular voyhge,
and beaded for New York. All on board were in the
OH 01 spirits, IHiiB urruiniug <n iub wwuui i uumibj
that was ao soon to overtake them.
THE COLLISION.
About three o'clock in the morning a light fog or mist
Pitied en the water, but did not prveent objects at
distance being plainly seen. At about fifteen minutes
before four the lookout on the City of Norwich discovered
a schooner about one hundred feet distant,
tending to the eastward on the wind, which course was
beading her directly for the steamer. When first seen
the schooner is said to have had no light forward, but aa
noon aa the alarm whistle was sounded she showed her
llf hta, but It was then too late; for before the course of
either vessel could be altered, so aa to run clear of each
Other, the vessels collided, and the greatest coal union immediately
ensued.
The schooner proved to be the General 8. Van Vliet,
loaded with oysters, and waa going at a good rate of
speed, aa the wind waa blowing a still breeze. She
struck the City of Norwich Jnst forward of the port
gangway with great force, tearing and ripping her timbers,
and cutting a large hole in her port aide, through
which the water rushed la large quantities, and the
vessel commenced filling very rapidly.
IllR KTK4UV.il TAKER KIKE.
Amid the hurried bustle and excitement consequent
upon tee steamer's settling so rapidly into the water the
cry of fire waa raised, and in a few seconds more the
forked tongues of livid Hume were Keen darting out Of
the vessel's hold, and this added greatly to the confusion
Uwt already existed among the passengers and crow.
The steamer being supplied with upper and lower furnaces,
tha water soon reached the lower tires :ind forced

difficulty that the officers could make th mselves beard,
no that their orders and instructions could he obeyed.
The prevailing darkness, the crackling tlamea, the dense
rolnmee of smoke, the piteous supplication* of the
women and children and the hoarse shouting of the men
lent to the direful eonfuaion that already exuded and
added greatly to the t rrors and fearful consternation of

TBS CITY OP NORWICH.
The steamer City of Norwloh waa built In this city some
four years since by Mr. John English, and was rated at
about one thousand three hundred tuns burthen (new
measurement). The City of Norwich was a sidewheel
steamer, and in her earlier career was in the service of
the United States government, running between this city
and Fortress Monroe. She sank in less than an hour
after being run into, and was valued, with her cargo, at
over a million of dollars. The vessel was fully insured.
statement op one op the passengers.
Mr. Henry Turner, a merchant, of Norwich, who was
a passenger on board of the City of Norwich at the time
of the disaster, states that when the collision occurred
he was as eep In hit stateroom, and was awakened by a
sudden crash, whereupon he immediately rose. When
he ran out be diacovered that the steamer bad been run
Into, and lie thought he would return to his stat-room to
save his watch and money, he having about a thousand
dollatl placed In the stateroom; but on turning back he
(oundTliat the steamer was on fire, and as the flames
were spreading so rapidly it \\ as impossible for him to
save bis property. He had nothing but his overooat
and pants, and in order to avoid being
burned to death be bad to Jump overboard.
He then began to swim as fast as possible to reach a
Bmall boat, which by this time had appeared in the
water; but. as too many persons were clinging to it, the
boat was tnrnod over, and all were thrown into the
water. Mr. Turner, however, rose again, and made
another exertion to reach the boat, but in the attempt
was nearly drowned. Mr. Turner, like the other passengers.
was very shattered in bis mind in consequence
of this frightful accident. He states that there were
a*?1w Hf'ianii iionconrraKi nn Knnrrl r%f (ha ill .fatA/1 hflflt t WH
of whom appear to bo raining. Those are, as stated by
Mr. Turner, a little son of .-amuel Osgood, of this city,
and a son of the chief engineer of the boat.
STATEMENT OF TBI CHIEF ENGINEER OF THE
ELECTRA.
Charles 8mlth, the chief engineer of the Electra, states
that about four o'clock in the morning lie was alarmed,
and on going out saw a steamer in flames. He imme
diately went on deck and lowered one of the life boats.
He picked up six or seven men. Mr. Crowley, the chief
mate, by this time bad gone out in the first boat and
rescued six or eight men and two women. The fire on
i the burning vessel spread very rapidly, and in ten
minutes from the time it broke out the boat was enveloped
in flames from fore to aft. The chief
engineer's boat's crew was composed of Mr.
Halleck, the expressman of the Neptune Express;
Mr. 8mitb, the steward of the Electra, and a few others,
who all did their best to rescue from drowning thoee
persons who had trusted themselves to the waves to
escape from the burning veeeel, and rendered efficient
service. Mr. Smith ia of the opinion, that the Ere originated
during the collision of the City of Norwich with
- the schooner, from the rising of the water when the
vessel passed, lifting the Ares, whteh communicated
with the woodwork god at once enveloped the whole
vessel in flamea. The disaster occurred near the same
spot where a few weeks ago the City of New London was
run into by the steamer Monitor, and where the steamer
Islington was burnsd in 1840.

The disturbance yesterday in Norfolk, growing out of
the colored people's demonstration on account of the
passage of the Civil Rights bill, provos to have been
rather a ,-erions affair. As far as reported, three persons
were killed and four badly hurt The killed were Robert
Whitehurst, a white man, Mr*. Charlotte Whiloburst, a
white woman, and Lawrence Hampton, a colored boy.
The injured persons, though none are thought to be
seriously injured, are John Whitehurst, a white man,
Moele? Palmer and son, both white, and Mr. Turner, a
city watchman. The Arst blame or the afTalr la chargeable
to allowing a number of thoee in the process on,
which altogether numbered about a thousand persons,
to carry loaded muskete with bayonets Over twenty
are said to have been thus armed, who, at the ant Inumstlon
of disapprobation and Jeering on the part of thoee
witnessing the procession commenced an indiscriminate
tiring among the throng of lookers-on.
As nsusi in such cases, the Innocent were the
greatest sufferers. This blame at permitting the
retrying of A rearms, or, rather, not seeing to
it that none did carry ihem, is divided between
the municipal and military authorities. Rot aside fmrn

III. lie* lie.
Though there ?u slight improvement yesterday in
the facilities offered for public conveyance, yet the running
of the cars ?'u far from being regular, nor were
the number of cars at all sufficient for the accommodation
of the public.
The various railroad companies are employing ah <he
driven tbev can Drocure. whether canuhle or not. but
the old bauds have shown no disposition whatever to return
to their posts at the old rate of wages.
On the Third avenue line it is reported that five of the
old bands were at work, and the company promises to
resume night travel as regularly as before the strike.
On the Fourth avenue line flfty-seven now men have
been employed. The agent of this company, on Tuesday,
sent a number of men?twenty in all?from Albany to
Mew York, intorming them that there was no strike on
the four-horse teams. The men, Ignorant of the situation,
went to work, hot, on being made aware of the state of
affairs, refused to drive. In consequence of this thoy
were left without the means of returning to their homes,
and hut for the men on the road, who raised a subscription
to pay their fare to Albany, they would have boon in a
miserable condition. Too sguch credit cauuot be given
them for. their generous conduct towards their fellow
workmen. Accidents still continue to be the order of
the day on the roads. Through the carelessness of the
driver one of the horses or a large car was'killod yesterday
at the corner of Broome street and the Bowery.
On the Seventh avenue line no less than thirty-six
conductors were discharged yesterday for refusing to set
as drivers.
Ob the other Hnse than has nothing of any importance
occurred. The men are at 111 quiet and determined, and
the travel on the roads sutlers lit consequence.
OUTRAGES BT THR STRIKERS.
George TulT;y, one of the new drivers of the Fourth
Avenue Railroad Company, while leaving his cur at the
upper depot was stabbed in the leg by some person unknown,
but fortunately the wound is not of a serious
character. It Is alleged that the assault on Tuffey was
committed by one of the old drivers.
Yesterday morning James McKntee, a driver on one
of the Bleecker street and Fulton ferry cars, was driving
through Fourteenth street, when J. Goldrick, one ot the
old drivers, committed a violent assault on him. Officer
Knight, ol the Ninth precinct, arretted the assailant, and
he Is required by Justice Dodge to give ball in the sum
of $600 to answer the charge.
Last evening several of the drivers on the Third
Avenue Railroad returned to the depot and reported
that they had b^en beaten by some of the strikers or
their friends in the vicinity of Yorkville. The poiloe of
the Twenty-third precinct afterwards lined the avenue,
and prevented a repetition of the outrage.
The Twenty-first precinct police report that at halfpast
seven o'clock last evening several of the cars on the
Third Avenue Railroad wore detained at Twenty-ninth
street by the breaking of the pole of one of the care.
A crowd Immediately collected, and one of the driven
was struck. The police Immediately dispersed the
crowd.

A moss meeting of the car driven was held In the City
Hall Park yesterday, which was attended by about one
thousand drivers, besides an immense number of their
friends and sympathizen. The men commenced to assemble
about three o'clock, and, from that time until
nearly Bve were engaged in discussing the strike ana
its probable result. Shortly before five o'clock two large
wagons, each drawn by four horses, arrived from up
town. Round the sides of the llret was the motto,
"United Car Drivers' Association. Stand Firm?Our
Cause is Just." In the second waa a large placard
bearing the following inscription:?"Broadway ? and
Seventh Avenue Railroad Conductors, Discharged for
not Driving Cars." Both vehicles were ga>ly decorated
with national flags, and a drum and Ofe band accompanied
the procession. Mr. Thomas Lsvms, President of
tho Car Drivers' Association, called the meeting to order
shortly before five o'clock, and said, aa President, be was
happy to see so many present to help In establishing and
carrying into effect the principle of two dollars and a
hair for a day's work. He should not encroach on their
time, as there were gentlemen present who would throw
out views with respect to the strike mote valuable than
any he could place before them, and the (lret gentleman
he should call upon would be Mr. Corcoran.
Mr. H. P. Coatoaan said when he appeared there live
minutes ago he had no Ides of being called upon to
speak. He came simply to givo his rouutenance and
support to what he conceived was a Just cause. Since
the commencement of the strike their movement* had
boon in no InsUuOJ unlawful, and he knew theimbllic
thought their cauee was just. (Cheers.) If they
d;d Justice to themselves and to those who were to come
after thorn, they would ma main the peaceable stand
they hiul taken; be said peaceable, because the man who
committed a crime gsve strength to his enemies Their
cause was Just; it was labor against capital, and th'-y
would ult.mately win. The poorest laborer down town
received fifteen dollars a week for a day's work of t n
or twelve houia, and the wnilment of the public was in
favor of the car drivers being similarly treated They
had now the full sympathy of the public and he hoped
that by no act of theirs would that sympathy tie forfeited.
Mr. Wn. Hatns Johnson was then introduced and said
they had bia full sympathy in their ctlurts to gel a fair
day's wages for a fair day ? work. He remembered, two
years ago, when a strike took place In the rlty of Philadelphia,
the driver'* emlea' orcd to obtain an inrreas" of
wages Just aa they were then doing; It won only by
determination that they mice eded, and if those
belore him were animnled by the same spirit, the public
would sustain them The companies would llnd It to
their Interest to employ their old drivers. They would
want men who were experieue d and who knew how to
perform their duties. Many of the tn n who had taken
their places were Inexperienced He railed up?n the
companies to give the men what they were justly en
titled to. They asked but an advance of fitly rents. It
was little to the companies, but it was much to lb* men.
He advised them to act with perseverance and not g.ve
in, unioaa the companies gave them two dollars and a
half a day. He believed they would undoubtedly sue
ceed. He exhorted them to lie good and geuerous lo the
conductors, who had stood so nobly by them. They deserts
th tr thanks and sympathy, and the thanks and
sympathy of all In the community. (Applause.!
Mr. J. A. Mi Mistijs. of the F s-muw ? Jimrnal, waa
the next speaker, and said ha had coma over from his
office to make one of the crowd Th- people of New
York looked on with admiration at the oiderly, law-abiding
and peaceful conduct of the drivers. Not one of them
bad been before the courts. (Cheers. I Not one of them,

Time, 3 11?8.12?3 OB.
The above trot created considerable spirit in belling
rirclee, Indian Chief being the favorite previous to the
tart at two to one; and even after the first beat, when
beaten very handily by llornblower, he still had the call
at eveua. Neither of the stallions is of mnch
account, and, like Topsy, each is without a
pedigree. Hornbloaer Is a good "whistler," and
Indian Chief la troubled with the "slows;" great
defect* In race horses. The whistler led throughout
the firm and second heats; but on the third
the Chief got away Next and kept sell in front for nearly
throe quarter* of a mile, wbn h greatly elated his backers;
but, unfortunately for them, be broke up ea the lower
turn, giving the blower a strong lead, and the latter
came home with a ?hrd! whistle, a winner of the beat
and money by five leuglha. The backers of Indian Chief
fell pretty heavilv en this ercaalon, but as they won in
a previous match between the same horses probably
they are not much hurt, flhnuld the owners of the -isl
lions incline to a deciding mab h they had better trot la
butcher carts on the Brooklyn Broadway; for horses
that cannot beat three minutes have no business on n
trolling track. _
