2 J1E TERRiRLE CALAMITY IN CHILI.
T!ie Telegraph a day or two ago made tli3
announcement of a terrible accident iu (jluii,
when hy tome 2,(M>0 sonls, mostly wom.ja and
Citizen, were burned to death. A correspon
dor.t oi the New Ycrk Titles, Y/ritiugfrom Sia
tia{ro de L'hili, under dale of December nth,
gives the following graphic account of the ca
ta: trophy:
li has been the custom for the past five vears
to calibrate the "month of Mary" with great
*wal and pomp in thn church of the Compania
or JesnH church, situated at the corncr ofth>
otn>?t nl, tb?t n?6iu.Bnd liuaHia street, Jlncl
fronting the plauzuula of la Corupsnia. Tne
curale h? ving organized a religious association
known ns the "Daughters ol Mary,' has iwld
ser vices during euia moutb, winding up on the
8th wuh a grand illumination of the chur.ii
and sermon in ihe evening, at which all the
members were earnestly entreated ts b3 pres
ent.
This year, determined to outshine all former
exhibitions, he made crrangemrliits to adorn the
church with garlands offlowe.s, coloss il sftr
u> s, and with an unpreceileut number of 11 M?ti.
f e was vainly remonstrated with by the Aroa
b.shop and others in authority, Who r?lu t.
antly gave their ccnseni to the display The
church was tilled with the devout all day. and"
to waids uightiali a continue us stream of hu
man beings, almost exclusively women, ponrwd
into the church untilevery avenue was densely
pat-Led, and the steps of the church and far out
into the plaza were filled with a hushed and
kneeling crowd. The doors were then all clued,
savo the miin entrance, fCr the double purpose
of preven'ing the confusion occasioned br lsite
comers and of making the voice of the preacher
more distinctly beard.
? J a little seven the assistants began
lighting up the chnreli and were just fiui?hin?
the piaud altar, the rest of the building beinl
fully illuminated with thousands of lamps?
most of them of parafim oil, when, from a
transparent crescent at the foot of the statue of
the \ irgm, burst forth a jet or flame. The 'at
tendant endeavored to extinguish it with "his
-jwMscho, but the inflammable liquid penetrated
the fabric and only increased the danger. In a
momi nt the flames darted up the garlands of
aruficial flowers to the roof, the Immense enpo
la caught fire, and the lamps suspended from
the roof by strings dropped and exploded
among the densely packed mass of women
knee.ing beneath. Darting along the wooden
ceilings, already heated to the dryness of tin
der, the f-ames ran like hissing serpents the
whol? length of the church aud rolled down
in huge billows upon the compact crowd that
had instinctively sought the main entrance
During the first lew moments of surprise "and
terror tbrieks ol sorrow for the destruction of
their beloved church resounded through the
aisles ol the building; but, when rushing to the
various outlets, all were found closed save
one, and that one impassable, loud screams of
horror burst from the despairing multitude.
For a few moments the heart-piercing cries of
perishing women were increasing; they gradu
ally grew lainter and fainter, and soon an
aw ful silence reigned within that horrible fur
nace, broken only by the angry roar of the
flames, or the crash of falling towers. By the
lurid glare within could be seen hundreds of
human forma, some with faces elevated in
prayer to Dim before whose throne they were i
rapidly hastening, others with eyes eagerly
strained and hands outstretched towards the
outer air, imploring that assistance that it wa*
impossible to give; mothers clasping their little
ones close and seeking to shield their darlings I
from the flames already blistering their own
despairing features; children clinging In the
phrenzy of despair to those who would have 1
gladly died for them, but could only die with
them.
The criminal neglect to take the most ordinary
precautions against fire, or even alarm, has
been fearfully atoned. Of the 3,(00 persons
within the pile but Ave or aix hundred escaped,
and most of them wounded, scorched and
naked. The vast crowd became wedged to
gether, and fainting with heat, terror and pres
sure, lost the ability to help themselves or sec*
ond the efforts of (hose who risked their lives
to save them. It was only by almost super- i
human effort that some few were dragged from
the tightly packed massof humap beings at the
tardily opeued outlets; and of those few, a great
majority only lived a few hours.
The refeuers, approaching too nearly the
dense mass of victims, were time and again
seized by the outstretched hands of nnmbera,
ond only saved by their own desperate strug
gles, aided by their companions frjm behind,
but who couid withstand the imploring ges
tures of those who. upon the very threshold
ol salvation, saw a fearful and agonizing death
swiftly approaching!

the main deer fronting upon the plaza, 1rta a

repairing the gat^s to b.- closed at 10 o'clock
Tin* report tfcns speaks of the President's
House:
"The basement is scarcely tenantabie. It
has been patched up so as to be bab; table d urine
tfce wtnter. The President's family, as is well
known, in cci srqne ce. principally, as I be
lieve, o; the unhealthy location of "the bonce,
leave it early in tbe summer (or a more be ilthy
and saittbrions locality. l*he. basemeut is thus
jelt untenanted, except by rat?, and they have
undisputed poii*sfiioii. Tto^y b.tve nearly de
^-tiojed the washboards in mauj places h?ve
*g?f,wed holes in the wrod weTk wherever they
oculd get at It, especially under the doors, and
have liurrowed considerably under tto build
ing. Much ot tbe tiling has been so disintegra
ted upon the surface by the dampness that it
has recome necessary that it should be taken
up and relaid. During ttie littler portion 6f the
past cummer ike tlliuvtalrom dead rats was
offensive in all tbe passages and kany of tto
occupied rooms to both occupants of, and visi
tors to, the President's Mansion. 1 have ask
ed, In my regular estimates, for an appropria
tion to Tepiir this basement.
?I trust It will not be considered improper
for me to suggest that It would be greatly for
the comfort and health of the President and bis
family if Congress would cause a new maa
sitn tcr the President to be built in some
healthy locality, contiguous to tbe city, for a
resit"eace, while, sbou!d the President so elect,
a business ofllce mifbt be rgbtined for him in
tbejiresent building."
With regard to ibe Po'omac and
Branch bridges and roads appurtenant thereto
the report says ?
"A law of Congress places it under the su
pervision and care of the t 'ommis?ioner of
Pnbile Buildings, but at a time 1 ike the present
that bridge becomes of snch vast military la?
pertance that it should be controlled; as it now
is, by tbe War Department.
"The navy yard bridge has been kept in as
good repair as the appropriation would justify,
but the travel over it has so enormoasly in
creased, tbat it requires mncb greater than or
dinary repairs, and should be newly planked.
"The wing-wall, estimated f >r last year, and
to erect which an appropriation was made, is
now In progress of erection, bat It 1* feared
that in consequence of the increased prices of
material and labor, there will not be money
enongh to finish it.
"Tbe upper bridge has been kept in good re
pair, and will need nothing thatcanbot be done
with the ordinary appropriation."
The report also recommends tbe erection of a
new jail as an abac lute necessity and an en
largement of the Court Hon-e.
Tbe Commissioner says of Pennsylvania
avenne:
"I bave asked in my estimates for aa appro
priation ofS-M),(X.O to enable tbe Commissio. ?.< t>
mend and sweep, and wst r tbe avenue, and
even tbat snm will hardly be snfllcient to do U
thoroughly. It verymochTeqniivs to be aeivty
paved from the Capitcl ga-e to Georgetown;
and tbe Belgian pavement, wttlch has b-en
fully tested, Is the only on^ known to mc that
will staid well, is earnestly recomnvad-d."
