The Particulars of the Drowning of Two

From the Chicago Tribune of the 20th,
copy the following particulars of the disaster,
already announced briefly by telegraph :
"Accounts by the survivor! ot the late «team
boat disaster of Red river agree i

their criminal indifferenoe. The accounts say
that the Kentuoky, whioh appears to have been

Shreveport, beeu run into the river bank with
great force, but nothing serious was apprehend

passengers on board, chiefly Confederate sol

bell, whioh wa9 kept ringing after the

For some reason, yet.fi) be explained,
the soldiers were permitted to remain asleep, in
fanoied security, while the boat filled with water
and was sinking, and thus nearly aU of them
oarried under. Some who were outeide,
or oould easily extrioate themselves,

aides and floor of the boat, and thus escaped,
but abont two hundred of them were undoubt
edly lost. As the boat careened, a great rush
took place to the hurrioace deok. Many of
the passengers were in their bertha, and were
laved almost wholly destitute of olothlng. A
large number were caught between decks and
drowned. The ladies generally succeeded In
gaining the burrioane deok, and were all saved,
Some ohildren were loit. Some of the pasaen
gers gained the neareat bank, and other« reach
ed the opposite side In safety. To render the
appalling, the the texaa took fire
after the steamer bad landed. It waa ■apposed']
that the coal oil lamps were upaet by the shook,
and that their inflammable contents were spilled
upon the beds. This Are waa fortunately
quenohed, otherwise a very large number would
have been added to the mournful list of lost.
