0"Wc received yesterday a private letter,
which, os is the oaso generally, when ladies
write, is much taken up with gossip about the
fashions. Wc don't know anything about these
matters, and therefore take the liberty of pub
lishing extracts from it, for the entertainment of
our female friends, to whom wc are sure it will
bo interesting :
Saist Lofts, Sunday Night,
' - - April 4lh, 1852.
I have concluded, among other things to
write you a letter, to assist me in getting
through the day, (it being a rainy one as usual,)
but do not flatter yourself it is for your amuse
ment, for I assuro you it is entirely self-interest.
I sec your paper weekly, ond read it with
much interest, and among other contributors find
"Crux" one of the best, and as he gives you all
the public news and gossip of our city, I, for
your own private use, that you may render
yourself as agreeable as possible to your lady
acquaintances, will enter into the difficult but
important explanation of our summer fashions,
that, you know, being as interesting a subject to
us, as a horrible murder, or an elopement among
the uppcr-tendom would be to you. You so
seldom have time to visit, that you slioirld make
yourself very ogreeablc which is more than
gentlemen always do. I know youtobe (with
out exception) one of the most absent persons
in existence, but nevertheless, taking it for
granted that you know one article ef dress from
another, I will at a venture endeavor to enlight
en you with regard to the fashions : Open straw
bonnets arc almost entirely worn, trimmed to
suit the wearer; summer silks, with a very small
check or stripe, made open-waist and flowing
sleeves, with handsome under sleeves ond chem
isette. The mantles are very small, and deep
fringe is wcrn altogether. Novr, I have no
more idea than tht man in the moon, that you un
derstand what flowing dctve and open wait!
means ; but do you store your memory with it.
It will flatter any lady to think a gentleman no
liccs her dress, particularly if she is very neat.
I see by the papers the arrival of several per
sons from your city, and among them Captain
Robards, who, I suppose, has come to purchase
furniture for the Brady House, which I expect
will be a well kept house whilst under his direc
tions, and in his hands. There was a most ter
rible steamboat explosion at our wharf list
night. The steamer Glencoe, a five boiler boat-
just hnding, on her return from New Orleans,
with some two or three hundred passengers a
board, burst two or her boilers, wounding and
killing a great many persons. I will not cr.tcr
intoany particulars, as "Crux' will detail them
to you for the benefit of the public, and this be
ing a private letter, I merely mention them.
To-morrow is election day for mayor; tee whig
arc pretty confident that Kcnnct will be re
elected, uui oi mat also "Unix will give you
an account. I was sorry to hear of the large
fire you have hod, but expect two or three more
such will enable you all to sec the necessity of
having more engines in your city.
I want you to tell mo who wrote the "White
Fawn," if you please, and also who "Anne Wil
bur" is.

Dreadful Explosion and Loss of Life '
Wc are called on to record a most tcriVole ca
tastrophe the explosion of ths steamer Glen
coe, and tho dcstructi.cii of a large number of
hiunan bein It canuot be nseerlained lmw
manv, ffie history of iliia dreadful event, as
Well as wc could nscrrtain it during the prevail
ing intense excitement, is ubout :is follow! : .
The steamer Gluncoo hud just arrived, on
Saturday evening, between seven and eight
o'clock, from New Orleans, heavily laden, ond
was endeavoring to effect a landing between
l'ina and Chestnut streets.
Tho steamers Aleck Scott, Georgia, Cataract,
and Western World were lying, one beside the
other, nt tlmt point, and the Olencoo was at
tempting an entranco between the Cataract and
Georgia. She lay with her bows a little above
tlie stern f the Georgia, when two or more of
her boilers ex ploded, spreading death and dc
i'.TWtivrt is every &fS3!iatbJt ker.
From a young gentleman, who, during the
upward trip of tho Glencoe, acted as her assis
tant clrk, we learn that sho carried eighty deck
passengers, more or less, and from twenty to
twenty-five cabin posscngeri.
We give the names of both cabin and deck
passenger in another place. The boat had
touched at several adjacent steamers sufliciently
long time to allow many persons from shore to
board Ucr, swelling her numbers considerably.
The explosion was, us wt have intimated a
tremendous one. The entire upper works of
tlie Glenooc, forward of tho pilot house iinfor
tnnutelv tho iart where the majority of liasien-
ger hud rathercd to witness the landing were
torn awiij. Chimneys, boilers, timbers and
freight were scattered about with many hiunan
buns iu every curcaiou. .

The work of destruction was not convince) to
the Glencoe, The after upper - works of the
rtnract, which lay close by, taking io tho whole
of the ladiu s cabin, was destroyed. Other
boats near by were visited, but tea less extent
by the calamity. )'- ' ' i ' i I ' ! ' ,
Shortly after tho explosion, (he boat wai'dfs
covered to be on fire, and simultaneously with
the discovery commenced floating down. The
full extent of the ruin presented itself a she
passed Uown. ' ' -!,
The cabin forward of the wheel house was
gone. A portion or it Jiod been thrown on the
freight piled at the forecastle, this mass rising
as nigrvas me auer nurrioane a ecu. in names
were burning fienscly about where the boilers
had been, and spreading rapidly to all sides.
F rom tho shore, many human beings, men,. wo
men and children, could be descried hurrying
from one side to the other, desperately seeking
some piHce oi escape.
One or two poor fellows who had been scald
ed and afterwards caught in the falling timbers,
were seen motioning and heard crying wildly
for assistance, as tho flames reached sn 1 envel
oped them. The scene was a most horrible one.
As the boat continued to (time down, her vawl
became filled with her surviving passengers.
The yawls of some other boats also were pushed
out and succeeded in savinr others We can
make no correct estimate of the number of per
sons lost by scalding and drowning. It is sup
posed that from sixty to seventy were saved.
Allowing this estimate to be correct, from thir
ty to forty, er even more,' lives have been lost.
The scenes witnessed immediately after the
occurrence of the catastrophe are of the most
heart-rending description. We noticed several
men, their faces blackened, and their clothes
wet and soiled with ashes, hurrying 'along the
levee and crying for relief. One body on the
Cataract had the head blown entirely ofT. We
saw also the legs of a boy or girl, the body hav
ing lodged in some other direction. A number
of physicians were in attendance and rendered
every service which lay in their power.
The bo ly of a lady, so horribly mangled that
it scarcely held together, was taken from the
ruins of the Cataract's ladies' cabin. She was
not, of course, identified. It was thought that
she had been blown from the ill-fated Glencoe.
A little girl, aged about thirteen, was also nick
ed up on the Cataract, and it wis for awhile be
lieved th'at sho could be saved. But a closer
examination by the physicians revealed one or
two fatal wounds, which induced the opinion
that she would not survive until morning.
The burning Glencoe lodged at first about the
foot of Spruce street, where some of the survi
vors who had not escaped by the yawls succeed
ed in gaining the wood boats atid thence reaching
shore. Alterward, she swung round and float
ed until within a few blocks of the gas works,
where she permanently lodged and burned to
the water's edge. The fire was communicated to
the wood-boats she had passed, seven of which
were destroyed.
Five oilier empty wood-boats were also con
sumed. The flames spread next to the corded
wood on shore. It is estimated that from 250
to 300 cords of this wood were consumed. For
tunately the fire did hot spread to the buildings
on the Levee.
In our statement of the injuries to the stenm
ci lying near the Glcnccc when she csploded,
we failed to give all the particulars. One of
her chimneys, wc are informed, struck the after
cabin of the steamer Georgia, demolishing it
euiuplcloly. Tho starboard forward guard of
the Cataract was greatly damaged.

The Railroad bills have been in abeyance for
some days. Those which have passed the Sen
ate are ly ing on the S peaker's table of the House.
there arc oilier bills yet pending in the senate.
bills forcrants or land to about liFlecn roads
have reoeivod the favorable action of House Com
mittee of Public Lands, and have been, or soon
will be, reported. Within a few days, propo
sitions orcompromisc between theOldand I"iew
States, o this Land question, have ' been agita
ted, and it is possible that somlhing may grow
out of it. The most acceptable plan seems to
bb one which selects and grants land f to the
most meritorious of the many Railroad projects
say the number reported upon favorably by
Committee of Public Lands in (he House.
Grants having tkus been made for the benefit of
the companics,(probably absorbing ten millions
of acrei)it is proposed, as a sop for the old States,
to distribute among all tlij Sinks, say 100,000
acres of land tor each Representative in Con
gress the proceeds to be applied to schools and
tor the Insane and lilind. the old Mates arc
not to make selections of lands at all, but are
to receive, in lieu thereof, Laqd Scrip say for
ltU acres, which they may dispose ol m such
manner as they please. When assigned to in
dividuals, (hey may locate it wherever it suits
them. The ell'cct of this plan is to give the
land States a omit of all thelandt granted for
the benefit of Railroad 't. It will encourage emi
gration to them, as the old States will be eager
to sell the Laud Scrip, even at low prices; and
the only injurious effect will bo to depress the
value of laud, by throwing immense quantities
of the Scrip into rr.jy Ket. Hut this will only
be temporary, and the1 increased emigration und
settlement will add to the real wealth of the State.
Some compromise of this kind mut be made,
and as tlie lands haft to go, this seems au equi
table distribution of them. The States interes
ted in grant of land for Railroad purposes, are
in a minority iu the House and tliey have no al
tentative but to make terms with those who
oppose them. If the details can be properly ad
justed, ft bill may be brought forward next
A new cugino has been built ut. New York,

kind of machinery. It has been patented by
Kricson. the inventor of tiio Ericson propeller.
The engine has been built, and tried, and works
well and uses only W lbs. ol coal per clay.
Boilers are dispensed with nltoijethcr and you
can well imagine what a revolution it will effect

vessels carry 000 to 1,000 tons of coal for each
voyage. There will be no danger of explosions,
or anything of that sort. Th engine now built
is intended for a large sea steamer, in course of
construction at New York, and the whoU will
cost over half a million of dollars. Men of cap
ital would not be likely to invest such sum of
money upon a doubtful experiment, and you
