The water flooded all parts of the mine instantly, and only three or four out of the whole force es cnped. Among the lucky ones are David Mackey, the ainlie superintendent, and D)av:l Skin'ier. he water quickly reach edl a depthlc of sixteen feet in the mouth of the sl:af't, or ten feet above the topl) of the ro.).s. ii which the adtiers were working.

An Express Train Dashes into a Sleigh at Midnight, Killing Three Persons. .NIAW IIAVlN, Feb. 18.-At 12:58 this morning a sleigh containing William Meyers, William Howe, Alice Franks, Emma Mattram, and Alice Holmes, re turning from a visit to the Skating Rink at Meriden, left Miss Holmes at her resi dence in Wallingford, at Cherry and Cen tre streets, and then proceeded with the rest of the party to to the railroad crossing on the main thoroughfare or the borough, which during the day is protected by gates, but left open at night. A row of coal sheds on the south side of the street and the freight depot of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad pre vent a view ot the track until directly up on it. Fifteen freight cars were standing on the west side of the track, above and be low the crossing, leaving only a narrow passage, effectually concealing an ap proachiing train, which came at lightning speed from New York. Mr. Meyers, who held the reins, drove upon the track, and the train struck the sleigh, killing Meyers instantty. Mr. HIowe lived only twenty minutes, his skull being fractured, [and left thigh bone broken. Miss Franks had her skull fractured, the baains exuding as she was lifted up, She died at 5 o'clock this morning. Miss Mattram sustained injury of the spine, and also severe intern 'al injuries, but fatr hopes are entertained of her recovery. Four or five of the in habitants of Wallingford, who were akake at the time of the accident, are positive that no whistle was blown. A coroner's jury was impanelled at 7 o'clock this morning, and adjourned to 4:30 for the taking of testimony. There is great iu dignation caused by the report thai the en gineer failed to blow the whistle. FOR RENT. The lower room of Odd Fellow's Hall on Main street.

New York, February 28.-At 314 o'clock yesterday afternoon, when the fog was the thickest, the ferryboat Union of the Fulton Ferry line left her slip at the foot of Fulton streqt. Her bell was rung frequently, and at brief intervals the fog horns were blown. In about mid-stream the Union struck Annex boat 2, bound for the Pennsylvania Railroad ferry slip, Jersey City. A large hole was stove in the starboard side of the Annex boat above the water mark. The rudder yokes of the Union were bent, and about five feet of her guard rail wascarried away. When the pilot of the Union had satisfied himself that no person had been injured on either boat, he steamed to Brooklyn. The Annex boat was unable to conti:ue her trip. She blew four whistles as a distress signal. The tug Cornelia an swered the signal and towed the Annex to the New York shore where her passengers were landed.
