Morkistown, May 15. Lusiguiani was hanged to-day at twenty-one min utes past eleven o'clock. He died quite easily. He was hanged for the murder of bis alleged w ife, whom he found co habiting with another Italian. He passed last night in a somewhat restless manner. In the morning, however, he was in fuU health and ate a hearty breakfast and conversed freely with his visitors, expressing hnnseir not alratd to die. As soon as the body bad been cut dowu the priest of Morristown asked to have possession of it, but was told that the doctors must first certify to the cause of death. Father Vaasello strenuously otijeeted, and told the jail physician he would prosecute him if he touched the body. This having no effect, he de clared that the priests would not receive the body if cut or mutilated, and that it could not be buried in a Catholic ceme tery. The body lies in a cell, awaiting burial, and if uot claimed it will be buried by the county authorities. The body was taken in the afternoon in a hearse to the receiving vault of F.vergreeu cemetery, but was refused admission by the superintendant, aud it had to be brought back to this city. It is now on ice awaithig further orders by the authorities.The priests still re fuse to receive it on accouut of its not having been delivered to them imme diately after the liangiug aud before post ill is f Hi. the total of which cousisted in a slight opening at the back of the neck. It is understood that a promise was made Lu4guani that he should tie laid in the Catholic burying-ground. aud the grave had really been dug for him. The matter creates much excitement here. It is claimed that General Crook has made the crooked ways of the Apaches of Arizona straight. He did this by furuishiuir nrotection to all those who remained on their reservations and ad hered to their pacific promises; but he "went for" every solitary Apache who ttiumertsi uwav into bv and lol nileie!. territory, and smote him hip aud thwrb Thereurxm the Apaches were compelled to sue for ieace, and the Hon. Shuzler Fan, who tigured iu the late "hal talk' with Geuaral Crook, agreed to keep his braves on their own reserve. He further more said that the "Great Spirit had made the red men bad at heart, for which the Great Spirit was very much to blame; but he and Lis people were willing to do as the general advised, since he had the power, apparently, to undo the evils which the Great Spirit had forced upon them." On this basis the peace was made, and the errors of the Great Spirit had to be subjected to a process of correction. Ht, Louis .SL Louis Halifax, May 15. A gentleman re turned from the burning coliie-ry says that relays of men hadbeen at work since yesterday, tilling up slopes and air-shafts with clay. The tire stlltHurns as fiercely as ever. He went within a" few feet of the month of the shaft, from which blue sulphurous tlames were ascending twenty or thirty feet. The roar from the burning mine was something terri fic. Dense volumes of smoke continue to ascend from several air-shafts. No adequate idea can be formed of the terrible disaster. The' computed loss of property is enormous, but is nothing in comparison with the loss of life. All the wood w ork in the mine is burned, and exierieiieed miners say it is one mass of burning ruins below. The causes that led to the disaster are not as stated, owing to the strike among the miners, but to powder being used iu one of the beds worked by a miner named Robert McLeod, )jho in-si-ted in using it, unless he received higher ratesfor cutting without it. At the inquest yesterday several im portant facts came out In evidence which show recklessness and careless ness iu the work of supervision in dan gerous parts of the mine. The first wit ness, Thomas Lowther, testified that the mine was carefully atteuded during the time the miners were out on the strike, and that there could have been no accumulation of gas when the min ers returned to the works Tuesday. The second witness. James Dunstan, who was in the mine when the fire occurred tes tified thathefouud nothing unusual in the mine when he descended. When word was passed that the mine was on fire, all hauus were requested to go and put it out. Those who refused to assist were ordered to leave, as by remaining they would only impede the progress of others. Had the men obey el the order when it wap found possible to stop the tire, there would have been plenty time to get it out. The same level had been on fire liefore. A man was always sta tioned in the cabin to give the miners information as to the condition of their places and to warn them of dangers. These regulations were attended to, as were also the furnaces for ventilating the same levels. Alexander Lorimer was next called. The gist of his evidence was in the state ment that if powder had not been used by Mcl.eod the pit would have been all right to-day; and that when he heard the alarm he went to pumping the pit, having heard cries for help, and assisted John Bennett to the surface. Andrew McLeod, brother of Robert McLeod, testified that he was inside cutting coal when the fire took place. They always worked their place with sulphur; can't say be fouud much gas in the ford; a' ways used powder after the third shot; had fired two shots and was preparing to tire the third when he discovered the ford was on tire; endeav ored to put it out by ordinary means with wet bags, but after work ing thus over fifteen minutes and fire gaining upon him, he then called for assistance, and two men came where he was, shouted and then made for the slope. All of them went out to the landing, shutting the door behind them. Joe Richardson then came down aud directed the men to get at the fire, but he soon returned and gave directions for all the men and horses to come out. Witness then started for the opening. aud had nearly reached the mouth of the slope, when the mine exploded, throwing him out on the bank. There were three more men behind him and two before him. The inspector of mines, Mr. Pool, said the witness's testimony relating to the tiring of shots had a most important bearing on the cause of the disaster. It was evident that the first and second shots had decided the effect, and blew down the coal there. The third sliot, however, was only a blown- out shot, and it oiiened a crack iu the bench, which then became a reservoirof accumulated gas. The latter immedi ately iguited and set lire to the coal, which burned with great rapidity, cre ating intense heat aud smoke, making it impossible for the men to work in putting out the flames. At eight o'clock the iuuties; was ad journed to meet to-day at eleven o clock. Kobert -McLeod, who nred the first shot, escaped, but is too ill to attend the in quest. The miners appear to attribute the di rect cause of the calamitvto the refusal of the manager to give an extra price to McLeod for getting out the coal in his ward, tnereby enabling him to dispense with the use of powder. If, as stated, it was prohibited in that ward, then it was the duty of xuneone tosee the rules were strictly enforced. To give some idea of the extent of the explosion from several air shafts, it may be stated of an old one close to the miners' residence, and dis tant from the mines some six nundred or seven huudred yards, that huge pieces of timlier were driven through it up into the air, some falling on the roofs of .houses, and crashing through them. It was truly heartrend ing to pass through the square of buildings where the families of the lost miners reside the window-blinds are drawn, and the poor widows of the men whose charry remains are far down in the burning sepulclire mourn inces santly and piteoualy the loss of those who have been so suddenly taken from them. As vou pass close to the saddened homes of these families, yon can hear them sobbing aud crying. Two or three witnesses were ex amined at the inquest this after no., ii. whose evidence went to show that most of the men were in the slope endeavoring to get out when the explosion took place. This was further corroliorated by a number of powder cans which miners carry coming out of the mouth of the slope with the second explosion. John Lorioer, who formerly worked in the mine iu the level below the one worked by Mc Leod, testifies as to the daugerous characttf of the room from constant accumulation of gas, aud was obliged to quit work because the powder could not le used. This ended the testimony. Later. Hie jury returned the fol lowing verdict: We find that the mi ners came to their death on the thir teen! h iusiant by an explosion of gas iu the Drummond colliery, caused by a disarrangement in the ventilation of the mine, arising from a fire in Rob ert McLeod's ward. A good-looking young woman, who called herself Mrs. Howe, was arrested a few weeks ago in a Newark concert saloon, where she had been employed to play the piano. She was taken be fore the magistrate, with the other girls of the place, but her appearance won the ofticiafs sympathies, and, on ques tioning her, he learned that she was the daughter of a wealthy aud aristocratic Irish family of Belfast, Ireland. She had married a worthless bank cashier, and had come to America with him. but his dissipation and cruelty forced her to lesve him, aud she hail accepted the position iu the concert saloon as the last resort. The judge immediately wrote to her father, and last week he re ceived a reply, corohprating hr state ments aud iuclosing funds for her trans portation to the house of her brother in Canada. The woman was naturally very grateful for his kindness, and the judge is probably quite as happy as he would have U-eii had he sent her to jail. Beau Leaving To-Day. H:.

Kukert, dated Tuesday night, gives, in a few words, the exact situation at the time the Kyle sunk: "We raised the Kyle in three hours; water ou her starboard guard about two feet deep; was taking on wood at woodyard on Louisiana side, one mile above Brunswick Point. The engineer discovered the water on her guard, and immediately started the syphons to working. As there was about forty fath oms water where she was wooding. ( aptahs Hutohinaon deemed it beat to back her out and run for the opposite side, which was accordingly done. The man heaving the lead continued to cry out "no bottom," for a loug time, it set med, but tin. thy, when he had found 'mark twain, Captain Hutchinsou said he expeiieL.ed a feeling of relief. She was kept on running uutil she set tled In ten feet water. She had some thirty-five passengers, and but for Cap tain Hutchinson's promptness ha back ing her out and starting her for the other shore, no doubt, many lives wonld have been lost, as all the passengers were asleep at the time. A Vicksburg dis patch of Wednesday evening at five o'clock, says: ''We start for Cairo to night, having iust arrived with the Kyle's Vixburg freight. The Kjrle is fol lowing us closely and will pass down this evening. Reese an Captain Bar nard go down on her to New Orleans. We left our 'wrecking-boat,' the R. H. Vance, at the month ot White river.
