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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

The congressional conference was
called to order shortly after eleven
o'clock, Mayor Brown in the chair.
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 " lrreicnlaritjr" f iend.
Boston, May 14. James A. 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.

The Picayune's interview with Kel
logg closes as follows :
Reporter Do you believe that the re
publican party represents a majority of
the voters of this State?
Kellogg Unquestionably. 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.

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.

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

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.
