THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL.
ESTABLISHED 1840. MEMPHIS, TENN., THURSDAY, MAY 15, 1873. VOL. 33.-JSTO. 134 THE rOKUBEIHHIKAL COKFEstEsH E. It is most creditable to the liberality and good seuse of the merchant of 8t. Louis that in laying before the con gressional conference the easiest, sim plest, inott expeditious ana cneajK-st mode of compelling low rates of freight, they have done so in a broad, compre hensive and liberal spirit, embracing the views and interest of the people of the whole Mississippi valley. Nothing could !e more catholic or generous than tin- ri'solutinn read by Captain Eads, levoted M tbey are and dealing as they t) wilb not only the particular wants of a city that might be supposed to be tltisb as well as ambitious, but with all the cities of the great valley that have a direct or collateral interest in the Missis sippi river. The first one sets out wilh an assertion, that all right-thinking m i; will indorse, that the improvement of the mouth of the Mississippi river is the first and most essential of all the im provements desired, and suggests a mode that at first blush seems to us to he most feasible. The others recite the removal of rocks, bars,snags,sawyer8, old wrecks, and all the rest of the impediments that prevent the free navigation of the great river, and, indeed, of all the rivers that arc tributary, which should and must be done, even though it cost as much as fifty million dollars to do it. Any one at all conversant with the difference in river and railroad freights, will admit t bat as much as that will in two or three years be saved to the people by the im provement of the great river and its important tributaries, admitting as they will of the utmost facility for a reduc li u in freight charges that will greatly reduce, to the eastern and southern con sumer, the pricei of breadstuff's, meats and othrr j :ime articles of food. At present prices, the difference of a bar rel of flour to Boston or New Orleans from St. Louis is that between four dol lars and eighty -eight cents and fourteen dollars and forty cents per ton, the for mer being the river and the latter the railroad rates. If this differ ence, amounting to an almost prohibitory freight tariff which compels the farmers of the west to burn their corn, and places them at the mercy of Hie uariers who control things at the grt'it grain centers, for them pri marily we desire the improvements so concisely stated to the conference, satis Sa ! that any measures affording them must inure to the advantage of tiie poor mechanics and laboring men of the Atlantic cities, towns and villages, :. well a- to the planters and laborers of tin south. We hope the conference wiil gi -c the resolutions a thorough sif.::ig, aud that, looking at the re solutionsfor which we thank the St. L mis merchants in the name of the a la of Memphis in a light free from sectional or political bias, they will be ! repared to vote tariy at the next session .f c :igress for an appropriation so libe ral as to express a determination to deal with the sixteen million jieople of the -ippi valley in a manner equal to their just demands and crying necessi ties. We are for the improvement of the Mississippi before anything else, aud we hope the people will urge upon their representatives in congress the early accomplishment of the work. NEW YORK.

Rl.V4li:r TO THE OXUitl.SSIOAL tOKFEKEKCE. We understand that the memtters of col (iress, now in c inference in St. Louis, will either pass down the Mississippi river to Xew Orleaus, or, if they go by rail to Galveston and thence by sea to New Orleaus will pass up the Missis sippi on their way to St. Louis, where i hey will finally adjourn. In either case it will become the citizens of Memphis to make preparation for their entertain ment on a scale commensurate with the importance of our city and their position as members of the national legislature. We make this suggestion, well satisfied that that is all that is needed to set a movement on foot that will result in a ur:iii.l Iminniet. Meanwhile, it would U: well ("or Mayor Johnson 1 1 be in cor respondence with the Ht. Louis authori ties, and ascertain the probable time of arrival here of the members of the con ference and St. Louis delegation. Tiie works on the Sevastopol railway have been making good progress of late. The earthworks of the line leHding to the station, as also of a loop line con necting the firmer with the post road to -iinpheropol are completed, and the works of a branch hue to the port, are steadily advancing. AH along the rail way as far as Sitnpberopol, the contrac tors and their men are busy. Between IJellieck ftmj simpheropol, ltli the earthwork! and the masoury are nearly finished, mid three tunnels between the tenter ; lam and Tehernaya are being at lively proceeded with. The entire line between Sebastopol and Simpher .;. .1 is exjH-cted to be ready for traffic by t he-close tf the present year. Irrespect ive of the railway, the inhabitants of .i- , ! are niy.luuhy awakening from theii long torpor. Houses which have remained in ruins since the siege are being rebuilt, and two new hotels and a couple of restaurants have re cently leu opened. The Tucuman railway, in the Argen tine republic, is making rapid progress. The cx-ndtict of the works is stated to have obtained the entire approval of the engineers appointed by the Argentine jjovernnieuL The Rio Cuarto railway has not leen yet completed, but the works are well advanced, and are lieing pu lied forward with much vigor. The works .f the terminus of the Central Ar gentine railway, at Cordova, are ai proachi:i cjmpletion. Mr. Sanchez, who had been appointed by the Argen tine government t. examine the Andiue passen, in order to select that which he considered mot suitable lor the con struction of a railway, has pronounced in rnv.ir of the I.os Patos Pass. He con siders it much better adapted for the purjiose than the pass of I'-pallata. Hn York. May 14. In June, 1872, just before embarking on his voyage of exploration, captain U. r . Hall de posited with Leggett & Storm, hotel keepers, in this city, a package, marked "C. F. Hall, care of Mr. Henry Grin nell." It was to lie kept in their safe, with directions that if anything hap pened to him it was to be delivered to Grinnell. The instructions were car ried out last Monday, and on opening the package Grianeli found it contained three books, comprising a valuable me moranda. In the form of a journal kept by Captain Hall when on the King William's Laud expedition in search of Sir John Franklin. There are also notes of various Arctic explorations from which he contemplated a boon. The journal contains much important information relative to the Arctic re gions known only to Captain Hall. A Washington special says the Presi dent recently expressed a regret that the appointment of a chief-justice would devolve on him, and that he would wil lingly shrink from the responsibility if he could. He further said that he would appoint a man independent of political considerations, and one whom the law yers of the country would indorse. In the meantime he hoped his friends aud prominent men in the country would give him their views upon the subject. The bar association has appointed a committee to co-operate with any com mittee of the bar in paying a tribute of respect to tue memory of the;iate chief justice. It is understood that a large public meeting is to lie held by the colored people, who are organizing for a mass meeting to be held in Cooper institute, to take into consideration their rights un der the law guaranteeing to them full and equal enjoyment of admission to theaters and entertainment by hotel proprietors. The meeting is prelimi nary to the prosecution of Letter Wal lack, whose agent denied two colored men admission to his theater, on the grounds that there was no room for them, aud of one Pivon, saloon keeper, who refused to serve three colored men at the tables of his saloon. Captain Williams, of the ill-fated Atlantic, sailed for England in the Oceanic. Philip Strauss, of 660 Lexington ave nue, shot himself dead in his house yes terday.

Stokes, upon a stipulatiou by the defense to take the case at once to the court of appeals now in session. Five supreme court judges aud judge of the court of aupeals. have refused a stay of proceeding in the case of Xixou, to be hanged Friday. Governor Dix also declines to interfere, on the ground that the judges have re fused; also, that the murder of Phyfer was cruel, unprovoked and perfectly un justifiable, and did not admit of any pal- native features. iNixon s counsel will go to the remainder of the thirty-two supreme court judges, or such of them as he can reach before the sentence is carried into execution. It has transpired this evening that Howe obtained a writ of error from Judge Faucher to-day in the case of Nixou, aud application was made to Judges Ingraham and Davis in the su preme court in general term for a stay of proceedings. The question was ar gued, and the court reserved its deci sion. The proceeds of the sale of Tweed's property to-day amounted to four hun dred and eighty-three thousand five hundred dollars. The cost of the prop erty to Tweed was six hundred aud twenty-five thousand dollars. The trustee's sale of Walter Roche's property, for the btnefit of the late ( iuardiau savings hank, occurred to-day, realizing ninety-seven thousand dollars. The Williamsburg ferryboat George Sand was ruu into this morning by a double-ended screw from the navy-yard. There was quite a panic on the ferry -Uat, but none of the passengers were injured. Judge Theron R. Strong, a prominent member of the New York city bar, died this morning at his residence in this city, aged seventy years. The semi-annual convention of rail road superintendents of southern and western roads, known as the Railroad Association of America, met at the St. icholas to-day. President Allen said their object was to secure rapid and cheap transportation, with fair remuner ation for those employed by railroad companies. Low rates must prevail, but at the same time transportation must increase and improvements be made in machinery, with an approxima tion to double track and steel rails. Sev eral reports were made by a committee and laid over. The entire bat ;h of three hundred and seventy.flve thousand of the newpenny postal cards was sold yesterday before four o'clock, and to-day the demand is still very great and general. Another batch was received during the night, and the postmaster has made a requisi tion on the department for a batch of one million more, as the various firms have applied for cards by thousands. The majority of those put in the mail yesterday bore on the message side an advertisement. With this exception the cards were mostly employed as a medium for joking-messages. Patrick Leary, the wife-murderer, has been sent to a lunatic asylum. The court of appeals sustained the de cision of the New York surrogate, that the United States cannot accept bequests of real estate, the case in issue being the will of Charles Fox, giving half a million dollars' to the government to h'-lp pay the national debt Chaplain's ship-canal bill passed the assembly to day.

Two or three trains, which were de layed yesterday, arrived last night, bringing several more members of con gress, who took seats in the conference this morning. A letter from President Grant was read returning thanks for the invitation, and regretting that other engagements prevented his attendance. Letters were also received from Charles Sumner, and several other distinguished gentlemen, regretting their inability to be present. Captain James B. Eads, representing the St. Louis merchants' exchange, in troduced and read a series of resolutions expressive of the views of the mer chants ami business men constituting that body on the requirements of the Mi lssippi valley, ami what congress ought to do for it. James S. Hollins, of Missouri, then came forward, and is now delivering a sjieech in which, after describing the ex tent and productiveness of the Missis sippi valley-, he is stating in a genera! way the necessity not only to the west but to the whole country for the im provement of present and opening of new water lines of transortation to the seaboard. The following is the substance of the resolutions presented by Captain James B. Eads, as expressive of tne views of the merchants' exchange of this city, and hy which liody they were unani mously approved. The first resolution declares that the deepening of the mouth of the Mississippi river is of the very first importance to the interests of the enti'e valley of the Mississippi aud of great moment to the whole country. The solution of this problem, we believe, will be achieved hy the closiug up of all the inferior outlets of the river and con densing its waters by a system of jetties to one channel. By this means a depth of at ieast twenty or twenty-two feet may be obtained in the southwest pass at an outlay insignificant when com pared with the many millions that will be annually saved to the country by the work. When once" accomplished small annual appropriations will suffice to maintain the required depth forever afterward. The second urges that in addition to the removal of snags, wrecks, and other obstructions from the channel, a com prehensive system of improvements, looking directly to the permanent loca tion and deepening of the channel through the .shoal places below St. Louis, be at once matured and inaugu rated, aud that a depth of eight feet be determined on as the maximum to be accomplished at first by the proposed works, 'lins will involve the ileelieniiik- of the channel at probably not more than thirty bars or shoal places between this city and .New Orleans, and the re moval of a few dangerous rock9 aliove Cairo; and would result in a savin? a thousand-fold greater thau the oruin il cost. The third resolution declares this plan is suited for the improvement of the Mis souri, Illinois, Arkausas, Red, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland aud many other important streams in this valley, ou each of which it should lie applied on a scale commensurate with the vol ume of the river aud the demand of its commerce. The fourth resolution declares that the improvement of the upper and lower rapids of the Missis sippi should lie vigorously prosecuted uutil the navigation of those parts of that river are made safe and conve nient, and that the improvements al ready commenced ou all other rivers of this valley should be energetically pro secuted to completion. The sixth says that every practicable water route to the gulf, to the Atlantic ocean, and to the great lakes, which can be opened aud made safe and convenient at a reasonable cost when comjiared with the beuefits to result from it, in lessen ing the expense of transporting the pro ducts of this valley to their various mar kets, should meet with favor from the general government, and receive the unanimous supHirt of the representa tives of this valley in congress. Seventh That the vast commerce de endiug upon the Mississippi river (or cheap transiortation demands that no artificial obstruction be permitted in its channel, except upou the most urgent necessity; and that no bridges should be authorized to cross it below SL Louis having spans over the stream of a less width thau five hundred feet, and a clear bight of seventy-five feet above high water mark should be preserved under the center of the channel spans of such bridge. Eighth We suggest that in conse quence of the breaking down of several iron bridges within the past few years, iuvolving much loss of life, all bridges hereafter built on an important railroad route should be examined into by a competent commissioner, whose duties aud powers should be defined by con gress, and without whose examination aud approval no plans for such proposed bridges should be adopted. The ninth asks that the navigation of our great water highways should oe re lieved of the dangers aud delays to which it is subjected by the many badly-constructed railroad bridges ou the upper Mississippi river by requiring them to be so modified as to lessen the number of accidents coustantly occur ring to the river craft by collision with their piers, and that a general bridge law be passed by congress, which shall define the length aud bight of their spans, aud generally control the location and construction of such bridges n a manner to prevent unnecessary injury to the navigation of said rivers. Eleventh That the interests cf this valley imperatively demand the most economical means of transportation to aud from the foreign markets of the world, and the safest aud most durable class of steamers, barges, etc., for its in land water service; and that it should be 4he duty of each representative of this valley in congress to labor for the removal of every artificial impediment which interferes with such cheap ocean transportation, or which prevents the adoption of such safe and durable ves sels for its inland navigation. Thirteenth That we emphatically declare that the revenue laws should be so amended as to permit shipmasters to purchase ships wherever they can be most cheaply procured. Fourteenth That we emphatically de clare that the revenue law which for bids registry to the ship to an Ameri can citizen simply because she was built in a foreign land, and thus compels him to float the flag of another nation above his property, 19 a burdensome imposi tion on the people of this valley, and is a policy only worthy of a past age. Fifteenth Refers to the fact that every civilized nation except our own uses iron-hulls for vessels, and asks congress to ascertain the cause of this and apply the remedy. Sixteenth We ask that the laws be so amended as to restore the prestige of the American commercial marine, and enable it to do its share of the carrying trade of the world, and that if it is nec essary that the American iron masters must be shielded from foreign competi tion by laws which effectually interdict iron steamers ou the rivers of" this val ley, and which drive its products into English aud German ships on the ocean, there should be some substantial government encouragement given to the construction of iron vessels, and such federal patronage, as will sustain American steamship lines against this unequal competition, and thus lift our once great merchant marine from it' disgraceful inferiority, aud keep the lives aud property of our people from being longer imperiled in wooden ships and floating tinder-boxes. After Mr. Rollins retired, Ex-Senator John B. Henderson was introduced, aud delivered a lengthy speech in which he discussed the causes which have brought about the great aud imperative demand for increased transit facilities, and what led to the controversy which now ex ists between stockholders and bond holders of railroads on one side and the producers and consum ers on the other. He explained under what circumstauces many of the railroads were built the great cost of construction, extravagant man agers, etc., and said the railroad com panies must necessarily pay their run ning expenses and meet the interest on their bonds or go into bankruptcy. They also struggle to pay dividends to their stockholders. To do this, their man agers insist that they caunot afford to lessen the prices of transportation. He said congress would soon have to meet ' lo se questions,audto treat them impar tially would be the part of wise states manship. He deprecated the fixing of arbitrary schedules in disregard of the business interests, and favored the abolishing of all competition in rates under the plan of abolishing all distinctions between competing and non-competing points and others. There was no doubt, he said, that the roads in many instance.- have violated their charters and usurped privileges not granted by law. When this is the case, legislative and judicial authority muot correct the evil. It is well that the con troversy has begun. It will attract pub lic attention, and furnish a subject for the contemplation of the statesman far more practical and ennobling than the threadbare issues of the late war. It look3 to the material interests of the people, and will inevitably bring in other important questions of political economy. The want of the west is ad ditional transportation. The railroads now constructed do not and cannot furnish sufficient facilities, but by a fool ish war upou railroads and upon the owners of railroads we drive capital into other channels, and in its prefer ence we shall have aggravated instead of mitigated the evil. He then speaks of the Slississippi river as an avenue of communication, and says the govern ment, by exending one-twelfth of the money has invested in western rail roads, it could furnish a depth of water sufficient to carry to and from the sea loard the products of the country at one fourth its present cost. When I speak of the country, I mean not only the east aud ti c west, but the north and the south. He also advocated the tributa ries of the Mississippi river, and said the streams east and west of the Alle ghenies should be connected by canals, and I mention the James river and Ka nawha canal, the projected canals in Alabama and Georgia, and the enlarge ment of the canal between Lake Michi gan and the Illinois river, the Niagara canal, and other enterprises of a similar character. In all of these projects the east and south are no less interested than the west. He then gave the history of the rise and fall of our national movement, and urged that some measure should be devised to restore it to its former emi nence. He thought, however, that before our commerce could be restored the tariff and currency systems would have to lie revised, but he declined to discuss these questions at present. He advocated the construction of three Iron-shipbuilding yards, one on the At lantic, oue on the Mississippi river, and the third on the Pacific coast, for the construction of government vessels and ships for private individuals. He then gave the history of the Union Pacific aud Central Pacific railroads, and showed how they had violated their pledges aud the law in discriminating against the Kansas Pacific railroad, which is a branch road, and under the law should be operated as part of the main line. Judge Reimoud, of New Orleans, then spoke of the obstructions at the mouth of the Mississippi, and showed in a conclusive manner what great injury they are to the commerce of the valley and the country, and how the evil can be remedied by the construct'on of the St. Philip canal, the feasibility of which is unquestioned. To-morrow's session will be given up to a general di-cussion, and various gen tlemen are expected to express their views upon the questions which have been presented to them. The railroad excursion to Texas will leave early on Friday nioruiug, via the Atlantic and Pacific railroad, aud stop at Springfield over night and receive the hospitalities of the citizens, and proceed next morning to Venita, and thence to Deuison, Houston and Galveston. The excursionists will num ber about one hundred and fifty, and will be under charge of F. W. Dwyer. of the Atlauticjaud Pacific railroad. ADDITIONAL MARKETS. CHARLESTON, May 14.

Coe, charged with irregularities in State street, was'arrested at his resilience this afternoon. Among his alleged opera tions are raising certificates of three shares of Michigan Central railroad to three hundred shares; two of Boston and Albany railroad to two hundred shares; one of Eastern railroad to oue hundred shares; two certificates of Old Colony railroad from two to two hun dred, and three certificates of one share to one huudred each. The Bos ton Water Power company's stock is also said to have been operated on in a similar manner. The al tered certificates had been used as collaterals, and it is supposed that about two hundred tbousaud dollars have been fraudently obtained. The firm already heard from have suffered to the extent of one huudred thousand dollars. The third uational bank in January last loaued Coe two hundred thousand dollars, taking as collateral a certificate for two hundred shares in the Old Colony railroad stock, which now proves to have been raised from a gen uine certificate for two shares. Coe, who was formerly connected with the house of J. N. Fisk, is about thirty-five years old, and has heretofore sustained an en viable reputation. He is one of the best known men on our streets, and is a member of the brokers' board. Latest from Louisiana. New Orleans, May 14.

Indeed, I am fully convinced that they possess at least twenty thousand majority, if per mitted to enjoy an hontst expression of their views through the ballot-box. Reporter Why do you give it to the people? aud would you and your associ ates favor, under any circumstances, a new election? Kellogg When the contest was being prosecuted last whiter several members of tiie fusion legislature, having ascer tained that no objection would be inter posed by me to a new election conducted under such authority as would insure its fairness, desired me to refuse my assent to it. They were opposed to a new electiou, Iiecause, I supixise, they thought Mr. McEnery would be recognized as governor, and that they would thus get control of the State. If my personal feelings only were consulted, I do not desire to be governor of Louisiana, but believ ing that I was legally elected, it was my duty to continue to exercise the func tions of chief magistrate of the State until the party that elected me shall decide, or congress determine, to or der a new election. In such an event their decision will be promptly accepted and cheerfully aquiesced iu by me. In expressing this opinion, I can, of course, give only my own views and not those of my associates. Jack KH tually Hodoeked at Last. San Francisco, May 14. Dispatches from the Lavabed to-day state that three hundred and seveuty-hve soldiers and Warm Spring ludians are scouring the Lavabed and surrounding country. The total number of troops in the field is twenty officers and four hundred men. Lavabeds, May 10, 11 p. m. Lieu tenant Bacon, of troop K, first cavalry, who has arrived in caniu with a detach ment, having been on escort duty be tween here and Captain Jack's old stronghold, brings a report from Lieu teuaut Cbapin, commanding the latter camp, that his pickets heard firing in the direction taken by Colonel Mason's command, iu their scout after the In dians. It is generally supposed an en gagemeut has occurred at the camp south of Tule Lake. Lavabeds, 12:10 a.m., (via Yreka) May 14. Since General Davis assumed command of the Modoc expedition iu person, ten days ago, only oue conflict, that of Saturday, has occurred, though the movement of which this last affair was a feature is progressing, and several bodies of troops are now hunting an en gagement. General Davis found the soldiers disheartened by the disastrous campaign, and had to resort to many devices to arouse their lagging enthu siasm and increase their efficiency. He began his work with a will, and bis earnestness won him the sympathy and friendship of officers and privates, and inspired them with confidence. He studied the situation carelully, utilizod the experieuce of his predecessors, and gave the wearied soldiers time to recu perate from the fatigue aud mental ex citement incidental to the rough fights in the lavabeds. He sent out a scouting party, had the men disciplined iu In dian dodges, and now his first grand movement is in operation. It is his intention to harrass the Modocs and keep them stirring Trom place to place, and subdue them. The men say they feel that he means business. Lavabeds, May 13, t p.m. Part of the men in this camp, it uot the entire force, will be moved to Boyle camp, ou the peninsula near Title lake, within the next two weeks. This camping ground is very unhealthy in the summer. Al ready the rattlesnakes and scorpions are familiar with the interior of the tents, and are making unsocial visits daring the nights. News will probably be received from Colonel Mason's force to-day. Every one is anxious to hear the result of the present acout. HORRIBLE. SeTPnty-flTC Men Killed or Burned t Death in a Coal Mine Intense Anxiety of Friends. Thirty Men Rush Down the Shaft to Rescne the Victims, and are Them selves Killed. New York, May 13. A Herald special from Halifax locates the mine disaster at the village of Westville, in the county of Pictou, one hundred and three miles from Halifax, where there are three large collieries In full operation, exporting large quantities of coal. Navi gation having recently opened, the workmen demanded increased wages, and several strikes occurred. One of the largest mines, called the Drummond col liery, owned by the Intercolonial com pany, of Montreal, has been closet! for several days, and to-day the men re turned to" their work at half-past eleven o'clock. A shot in the coal mine set fire to the slope, and in half an hour afterward a fearful explo sion took place, caused by an accumu lation of gas during the time the mine was closed. About two o'clock another explosion occurred, coming up the slope of the air shaft with terrific force, and it is believed, killing every man in the mine, variously estimated at from forty to sixty persons, including men and boys. Soon after the first explosion, cries were heard at the foot of the air shaft. Men were immediately lowered with ropes, and four of those below were brought up. Two men were going down the air shaft to render assistance when the second explosion occurred, and were blown to pieces. There was such a small supply of water that but little could be done to quench the flames, which is still raging tierce at nine o'clock to-night. Dense masses of smoke are pouring ont of all openings, an i threatening to destroy all the surface buildings. There is no hope of saying any of those now below, as all means of escape was cut off by the explosion. Many of the lost are mar ried men with families. LATER. Halifax, May 14. The latest news from the Drummond colliery this morn ing represents that the fire is still raging in the shafts and slopes, and that all hopes of rescuing the men must be abandoned. It is now stated that there were sixty men in the pit. Another heavy explosion occurred in the mine about two o'clock this morning, and it is thought to be almost impossible that any of the men iu the pit can be living. It is kuown that only four or five got out before the explosion. The fire caugh1. from a flask of gnnpowder. and the men remained in the pit to put out the flames. One report says Mr. Dunn and thirty volunteers went down to as sist in putting out the fire, about twenty minutes before the explosion occurred, at which time it is supposed that all the men were near the flames, and that many if not all were killed at once by the explosion. latest. Halifax , May 14. The fire at Drum mond colliery continues, but it is slowly abating, all of the openings having been filled up and a stream of water turned into an air-shaft lately worked. The list of killed, as far as known, comprisa twenty-six men who leave families, and twenty-two single men. The total number killed will probably reach seventy-five. The wounded number six, of whom two are fatally injured. The men who have escaped with great difficulty from the slope report that on their way up they passed the bodies of their comrades who had probably become stupefied by smoke since the explosion. Four men who volunteered to go down the shaft shortly before the second ex plosion were killed. Several violent explosions took place last night, oue of which was perceptibly felt at a distance of four miles. An inquest commenced yesterday, aud adjourned until this morning. Westville, May 14. From ten o'clock last night until daylight this morning the fire at the Drummond colliery raged with great fierceness, gathering volume and violence each moment. The sky in the vicinity of the colliery was Illuminated with the flames issuing from the air-shaft to the bight of nearly one hundred feet. All through the night there were explosions at intervals. These were preceded by a rumbling noise resembling thunder. The weary watchers who remained around the mouth of the pit and the air-shaft and labored to subdue the flames, were obliged to seek shelter in the adjoining woods, as the stones, debris, etc., which were thrown from the pit at each explosion were being scattered iu all directions, threatening destruction and injury to every one within reach. About two o'clock this forenoon, these explosions were followed by one which for terrific violence and destructive force dwarfed all the rest. AH the wooden works on and about the main slope were in stantly destroyed. Stones, wood and burning limbers were driven high into the air. Smoke, flames and horrible noises were accompanying the explo sion, giving the beholder a viv id idea of volcanic eruption. The earth for miles around was shaken with the violence of the explosion. Laborers are now at work filling up the shaft with clay. flAMJVK UNKKAI. OTI(L k SP-KCIAL comniuniuntion or AN UERONA LilXE, No. 1. will be held this (THURSDAY) mornlui;.
