I TERRIBLE DISASTER.
PARTICULARS OF THE BURNING OF THE STBAM
BOAT WINCHESTER.
[From lb. Wheeling Intelligencer.]
About nine o'clock on Friday morn
ing our citlzeiiH were startled by a tele-
RTam announcing •*»■ lll ° new H *J (l
splendid Pittsburg, Wheeling and Park
ersburg packet, Winchester, had been
burned to the water's edge, near the
head of Bab's Island, about five mile.,
above Wellesvllle, with the probable
loss of twenty or thirty lives.
'1 he excltomeiit was intense.a number
of the employees on board were citizens
of our town. Unable to gaiu any satis
factory intelligence, our reporter took
the eleven o'clock train antl repaired to
the scene of disaster. Arrived at Liver
pool, he found nil the men belonging to
this city safe and sound, most of them,
I however, Waving barely neaped with
j their llvi'B. They were O. W. Dunbar,
and Charles Wincher, Engineers; John
Dulty, Assistant Engineer, and John
Dunn, First Mate. He also found there
A. M. Sheets, of Matamoras, one oft. c
owners of the boat, who wns almost
frantic under the terrible bereavement
he had sustained in the loss of his wile,
an estimable lady,to whom he had been
married but about six months. She |
was the daughter of a highly respecta
ble citizen of our county, William W ad
dle Esq., who reside* near West Liber
ty.' Fn.in these gentlemen our repor
ter learned that at half-past three
O'clock one of the flieinen threw a
shovel full of hot ashes out in a careless
ainnner. Some of the live embers were
blown into a bundle of bay, which was
part of a lot that had been taken at the
mouth of Yellow creek. The hay lying
rather loosely baled, ignited instantly,
R although as quickly discovered,
every effort made by the fire
to smother it, the fire darted
ugh the bales like lightning, and in
oment the whole was a muss nt
flame, which, more rapidly than can be
told, was communicated to a lot of oil.
Mr. Dunbar, who was on the watch at
the time, informed the pilot that the
boat was on fire. Her head was quickly
turned to shore, tyid Mr. Dunbar letting
on all steam, ran her on shore with a
force which drove ber head high up on
the beach and secured her against all
danger of floating out into the stream.
The scene had now become territlc, ow
iug to the highly combustible nature of
a large portion of her cargo, and the
boat herself being new, her paint scarcely
dry, the fire leaped from point to point
aud ran as if upon a train of powder, so
that by the time her head struck the
shore all her deck-room was a mass of
raping fire. The passengers, roused
suddenly from slumber, iv their awful
i»eril ran wildly about, only to Hud every
avenue closed by the fire and blending
smoke. Many jumped overboard, some
are thought to have been unable Ui get
out of their berths, aud it is not known
bow many were lost, as all the books
and papers belonging to the boat were
destroyed. Those known to be lost are
Michael Fragrett, of Kowickley, Penn
sylvania, James Algeo and wife, and
Mrs. A. M. Sheets, all of Matamoros,
Ohio, John Vanmeter and four chil
dren of Woodland, West Virginia,
George Young, of Rochester, Pennsyl
vania, barkeeper on the boat, Ebenezer
Martin, of Sisterville, brother-in-law of
Colonel Johnson, of the House of Dele
gates, West Virglniu, also a man named
Walters, with one child, were burned.
Thechambermaid (col.) and two firemen
icolored) were also lost. Tbe scene is
described by those who witnessed it ai
awfully grand, the flames towering
aloft, illuminating 'the country for miles
around, aud threw a light far up and
down the surface of tho river bright as
noonday. It was short-lived as it was
grand, and it only remained for daylight
to reveal the horroi of that hour. There
was a mother wailing tlie loss of a hus
band and four children, while by her side
sat her remaining two, shivering with
cold and fear. Another with her infant
child rescued from the water, but dead
lying beside ber, looked upon the de
vouring fire and knew that her husband
and her other child were among its ashes.

as it was possible to render any
cc. Mr. Sheets swam out three
ito the river, lured as he thought
/oice of his wife, and each time
, some one to shore. All tli_
spoke in the highest praise
people who lived in tlie vi
of the disaster. As quickly as
• all were clothed and made as
;able as coultl be under the cir-
UCBB. Our reporter visited the
itself, and found it the most enm
i- ever witnessed; not a vestige of

.D. Moore, Daniel Moore, aud
Hamilton, of Pittsburgh, aud
&, Brother, of Matamoras. Khe
ilt expressly for the Pi.tsburgh,
ing and Parkersburg trade, and

rels of oil from Longmoor & Co., a hun
dred aud five bales of bay, a large lot of
empty oil barrels in ber bold. She aI»o

Captain; Wm. Abrams, Pilot; Daniel
Moore, Ist Clerk; A. C. Bunting, 2d

Piltsburgh offices for $50,000.
A reward of one thousand dollars is
offeTed for the recovery of the bodies of
Mr, and Mrs. Algeo, Mrs. Sheets and
Engineer Martin.
The Death of Gibson, the Sculp
tor. —We are permitted to make tbe
following extract from a private letter
just received in this city, describing tbe
illness and death of John Gibson, the
Eent English sculptor, so long a res
at Rome The letter was written
well known American artist, also a
ent of Rome: j
. esterday poor Mr. Gibson died, and |
orrow his funeral is to take place iv I
Protestant cemetery. He was sud
y struck with paralysis about ten
days ago, and since then has been lying I
In a hopeless and helpless state, strug
gling, but Yalnly, In the terrible mihn» 1
of death. He had been calling on Col.
Caldwell, when he felt a sudden faiill
ness, but soon recovered and refused to
allow a carriage to be called, persisting
In returning home on foot. When,
however, he arrived at the Piazza ili
Spugiia he found himself unable to go
ou and hailed a carriage, into which In
got, ordering the coachman to drive to
his studio. On his arrival there ewa,
unable to move, and was
the carriage quite paralyzed. He BMa |
mmediately carried to his apartments.
L7,!r y ßician called, and remedieaapplle
but the stroke was fatal. He >'■■£'■' '
along day after day on the verge of deatl
and finally yielded peacefully to his
mortal summons. H
"It will be a great loss to us all. urn
was of so genial a sympathy o.f nature
ho free from all jealousy and bitterness
of spirit, so ready to give the DMfMjn
praise to all, and to leud his assists ice
whenever it was desired, that he will ne
deeply and warmly regretted by all who
knew him. . .. ~
" As an artist he was conscientious,
faithful and laborious; refined in his
conceptions and graceful in his compo
sitions. He was the best representative
of the classical school of sculpture that
England has produced since Fiaxmau.
He wanted Flaxman's imagination,
while he excelled him in manual execu-
| 011 . His works were rather composed
inn created. Hut his loss will be .leeply
lt; for he was an honest and high
iln'ded devotee of art."
We would add (as we learn from the
all Mall Gazette) that Mr. Gibson was
> highly esteemed by (Jueen Victoria
■at she telegraphed to Rome to Inquire
fter his health, and sent him a message
f condolence and sympathy the day
efore his death, while he yet retalued

Wi-HSTEB and Jackson. When Mr.
Vebsterhad concluded his reply to Mr.
layne, President Jackson sent his pti- |
ute carriage to the capitol, to bear tin- i
reat New Hampshire orator to hi- \
iome. Kee what use the tipsy clown in |
front of Grover's curtain made of this
hit of history. "On Thursday, iv Wash
ingtou, among those who aired their \
eloquence out of doors were Senator |
McDougall, Messrs. Aiken and Clani
nitt, (who were the counsel for Mr*.
Hurrat), Hon. Mr. Willey, of West Vir
ginia, half a dozen Washington politi
cians,'and Hon. John Ilogan, of Mis
souri, who declared that the people are
for the Union. They spent their money
and shed their blood for it. No stay-ut
home people shall dissolve, by any mere
act of Congress, your President and our
President. We come to-day to endorse
him. That veto message will thrill
every American heart. We cim see no
difference between Jackson and John

but a giant truly. Tho people en

The people will not allow the Union to

the Union party. They are against It.

Voices. "Give us tbe names at the

The President. lam not called upon
to name their acts at tlie other end of
the line. I am talking to my friends
and fellow citizens who are interested
with me in this Government, aud I pre
sume I am free to mention to you the
names of those to whom I look upon as
being opposed to Ihe fuiiAt.nental prin
ciples of this Government, and who are
laboring to prevent and destroy it.
Voice. " Namo them ! Who are
they?"
The President. You ask me who are
tbey. I sayThadileus Stevens of Penn
sylvania is one; I say Mr. Sumuerofthe
senate is another; and Wendell Phillip*
is another. [ Long continued applause. ]
Voice. "Give it to Forney !"
The President. In reply to that I
will simply say I do not waste my am
munition upon dead ducks. (Great
slaughter aud applause.j

A Vivacious Description.—Even
the present political crisis has its comic
aspect. The Norwich Bulletin has dis
covered it, and speaks as follows of the
i Hartford Times and other democratic
"They wriggle and twist with delight.
The Hartford Times, whose subsistence
for the past five years has been on
funeral baked meats, bobs around the
arena in perfect ecstacy of pleasure. It
slaps tbe President on the back, calls
him "Glorious old Andy," says he is "a
tower of strength against the assaults of
disuuinnists," calls on the pc ,ple to
"rally round him," aud pirouettes about
him as though he was a long lost brother,
left in his infancy 011 a desolate island,
but now discovered and recognized anil
identified by the wart on his elhow.

The New Yoiik Times and its Puli- ,

Springfield Republican gives the follow- J
ing little story, which is perhaps worth
"A joke is going round certain circles
at the expense of Henry J. Raymond,
which is too good to lie kept private.
Report has it that Mr. Ganson, an ex
member of Congress from the Buffalo
district, tbe other day introduced Mr.
Raymond to Ex-Governor Parker of
New Jersey, who Is, as everybody
knows, a pro-slavery democrat. "Ah,"
says Judge P., "I'm very glad to make
Mr. Raymond's acquaintance. I take
the Times because I like to see both
•ides." "Yes," says Ganson, "aud you
[ get both sides in the Times." |
