Steamer Illinois Capt. D. T.
Smithers. This mammoth steamei
reached here about 9 o'clock Tues
day night, and remained at our land
ing long enough for our citizens to
examine ber thoroughly. She is the
largest boat yet sent out from Pitts
burgh. Length of keel 276 feet;
rake oi stem 20 feet; length on deck
303 feet; beam 40 feet; depth of hold
7J feet; 2 cylinders 26 Inches in di
ameter, 8 feet stroke; 4 boilers, 24
inches in diameter, 30 feet long; a
small boiler and engine is attached
for the purpose of hoisting freight.
J he cabin is a splendid anair, on an
entirely new plan, and contains 25
lengths of rooms, of the largest size.
Wheels 36 feet, with 14 feet buckets.
She was built under the superin
fendence of Capt. Smithers and Jas.
Holmes, Esq., and they may well
feel proud in beholding the beautiful
craft they have just completed. She
is designed for the New Orleans and
St. Louis trade. -
The first clerk is Mr. James Kerr,
Jr., a superior officer, and one that
we have often had occasion to speak
of in high terms. We recommend
him to our brethren in the. south
west. The explosion of the Steamer Red
stone, noticed in another place had
lately commenced running between
Cincinnati and Madison as an inde
pendent evening passenger boat.
She- left Madison on Saturday, at
12 M., and the only landing she
made before the explosion was at
Carrolton.
There were but two lady passen
gers on board, both of whom, and
the cabin maid, were saved, and but
slightly injured. Among the killed
are the Kev. Mr. Brant, Mr. Gob'e,
editor Lawrenceburg Press, and Mr.
Myers, foreman in the same office.
The awful force of the explosion
can be conceived from the fact that a
large piece of one of the boilers was
blown half a mile, lacking 5 or 6
yards, from the wreck! Eleven
bodies were blown into a cornfield at
some distance from the water.
Among them, those of first and third
engineers.
Anothar Fearful Explosion.
The steamer Glexcoe "ulew up at St.
Louis Saturday evening. She had
just arrived from New Orleans and
while making a landing blew op
with a terrible explosion, bursting!
all her boilers. About one hundred
and fifty passengers were on bourd
at the lime, a large number of whom
were killed. The steamers Cataract,
Geougiaand Western World, lying
along side sustained considerable
damage. Several were killed on
these boats. The boat took fire and
bnrned to the waters edge.
flCpWe see the death of John I.
Jacob announced in the Louisville
papers of last Thursday. He was
one of the wealthiest men in Ken
tucky. DCPWe are without our regular

The Gre at Chillicothe prevented its
reception Friday evening, and high
water on Monday evening. We are
thus under double obligation to the

ha. already .wept off a portion of tbe fence
of the farm, opposite here, in Virginia, and we

no material change from our last report.
About half-past ten o'clock Satut-
day morning a portion of the large
warehouse in process of erection in
the rear of Derby & Co's. bookstore,
on Main street, below Fourth street,
Cincinnati, fell with a tremendous

men were engaged upon the build
ing at the time, but few of whom
escaped unhurt.

hood at the time rendered much as
sistance to the injured.
fjCE. A. Jackson, of this county,

Sentenced. Nancy Ferrar, found
guilty of murder some time since for
poisoning the Forrest family, has
been sentenced to be hung on the
5th of June next. The Cincinnati
Enquirer of Sunday contains the
following notice of this miserable
woman;
Nanct Ferrar. We learn from
the jailor, Mr. Floyd, that this un
fortunate woman lias confessed that
she committed the murder for which
she was tried, but is very sorry for it
She clings to the hope that the Gov.
ernor will pardon her, and hopes
that her friends will use all their in
fluence in her behalf. She has been
visited, since her sentence, by a large
number of women, some, no doubt.
to satisfy their curiosity, others to
sympathise with her in her affliction,
and to advise her to prepare to meet
her liod, before whom she will soon
have to appear, should the dreadful
sentence ol the law be fulfilled.
We understand that petition for
executive clemency are in circula
tion for signatures, but with what
success we nave not been able to
learn. There was a rumor in town,
a short time ago, that the Governor
had been spoken to on the subject,
and that he had refused any interfer
ence, deeming it advisable to let the
law take its course.

Madison, April 3, P. M. The
steamboat Redstone, Capt. Tate,
hence to Cincinnati, with about 70
persons on board, including the
crew, exploded her boilers as she
was backing out from Scott's landing,
three miles above Carrolton, at two
and a half o'clock this afternoon.
The force of the explosion is repre
sented as terrific, completely shatter
ing the boat, which sunk immediately
in twenty feet water.
A large portion of the passengers
were lost, and of the crew only the
captain and clerk escaped; the for
mer severely if not fatally injured.
At six o'clock 15 dead bodies had
been recovered horribly mutilated.
We have no means ol ascertaining'

AWFUL CONFLAGRATION!
AWFUL CONFLAGRATION! The Business Portion ot Chillicothe in
AWFUL CONFLAGRATION! The Business Portion ot Chillicothe in Rains.
In the absence of anything direct
from Chillicothe, we take the follow
ing from the Portsmouth Tribune
and Clipper, as copied from the Chil
licothe Metropolis of the 1st inst.:
This has been" the siddest day in the
history of our cit. The business por
tion of Chilli-othe is in ruins, and many
families are rendered houseless. The
fire broke out about noon in Watt's
Carpenter shop on Wnlnut street be
tween Second and Water. It soon
communicated to the stables and out
houses of tiie Clinton House, lie wind
b'owing fiercely from the west. Ad
am's Block, including the C'inton
House, and the extensive warehouses
adjacent were soon burned to the ground.
The canal being empty, water could not
be obtained, and our.nremcn and citi
zens could only assist in removing the
contents of the houses, letting the de
vouring element take its own course.
The tempest carried the flames east
with fearful rapidity, and in four hours
time that whole portion of our city which
lies east of High street, and north of
Second, was a mass of smouldering ru-ins--including
Ross's Block, ihe whole
row of extensive stores between that and
the canal, the Maderia House and the
business houses north from that corner.
Also the wholesa'e establishments on
water street easi of Walnut. Every
house to Mulberry st , is burned to the
ground, and a number are destroyed as
far as east Bridge street.
WadJe's Block and Woodbridge's
large building, on the corner of 2d and
Paint were saved with great difficulty,
by which means the fire was prevented
from crossing in a southern direction.
We have not time in giving this bur
ried statement to particularize. Our
merchants had just received their Spring
goods, and their loss must be enormous,
although great quantities were removed
in wagons,
The Post Oiloe and the Advertiser
printing office were destroyed. W e
are informed that letters and books of
the former were saved, and also a por-
tion of the tvno of the latter.
We cnnmt detain the press any lon
ger. A mora particular statement will
bo given in our : ext.
A dispr.tch to B. F. Conway Irom S.
W. F.ly, Hsi., says: "S8O0.OOO worth
of property consumed. 230,000 in
sured. The S'-ioto Gazette brings fuller
accounts of the terrible fire. We
have not space for full particulars.
This disaster must temporarily check
the various plans of improvement in
progress and in contemplation by the
citizens of this enterprising city.
We make some ex'racts from the
Gnzette:
All is confusion this morning
people, removing, running to and fro,
and none conceiving the full extent
of the calamity. Our former beauti
ful town, the abode of prosperity,
hospitality, happiness and hope, pre
sents an extended scene of desola
tion, as terrible as the wildest dream
lunacy.
At a little past noon yesterday, a
stove in the cabinet shop of Mr. J.
Watts, in the vicinity ol the Clinton
House tables, bursted, by having
been filled with shavens. In an in
stant the siiop, full of inflamable ma
terial, was in flames. The wind
was blowing a hurricane E N E, to
wards the stables and rear of the
Clinton House, so that within fifteen
minutes after the first alarm, the
roof of that large edifice, fours'.ories
high, was al! on fire. Thence the
cinders and - spires of flame were
blown across Walnut street, commu
nicating at various points, among
the warehouses, stores and other
buildings along the line of the Ohio
canal, in that quarter where the lat
ter extends East and West. With
in the next hour every building
north of the alley between and par-
allel with the canal and Second
streets, to Paint street was on fire.
Early in the fire, by the sudden
bursting of Adams' Warehouse, the
Reliance was abandoned and burn
ed as she stood. Another of the
engines was obliged to be suddenly
backed into the Scioto to save it.
The situation of our city appeals
to the leniency of creditors, and the
simpathies of the humane, not only
among three that have been left un
hurt partially scratched, in this as
well as in other and more prosper
ous communities. Relatively speak
ing, the conflagrations at Fayette
ville, San Francisco and Pittsburgh
were not more calamitous.
It is a grateful reflection, howev
er, that not a single life was lost,
nor a bad accident to body or limb,
so far as we have been informed.
Many of course, were singed and
burned by firing of clothes and prox
imity to the names.
We cannot close this rambling
account, without speaking the high
sense entertained by the whole com
munity of the services of the ladies,
who, as they always can in cases of
real necessity, set the men an exam
ple of patience and fortitude, zeal and
activity. God bless them, and have
pity on the desolate!
J tie editor ol the Gazette, with
the aid of an insurance agent, sums
up the loss at upwards of six hun
dred thousand dollars. The follow
ing is the best summary we can
make of the amounts lost by differ.
