Like the Brooklyn theatre fire, the Brooklyn Caiholic orphans asylum grows in horrors. Up till 1:30 o clock io-nav, seven more bodies of the missing children have been digged from the ruins, al o the body of a man. Contractor McDonald, with a force of twelve men, com ineneed work at 6 o'clock, and their picks and crow-bare made no unnecessary dis turbance of the piled up mass of warped iron, charred timber,"and frozen mud that lay on the floor. At 9 o clock the workmen who had cleared off the top of the debris, noticed a section of a thigh bone protruding from behind a gnnrled and twisted iron. It wts quieiy disen gaged from its holding in the iiozin mass that surrounded it, and the trunk and ver tebrae of a full grown adult followed. The fleshy parts of the body were burned to toe bones, and the intes'ines and pine were charred. The Lrft arm was deep in the frozen mass, and investigation showed it still retained, in all its distortion, a bent form. It clas: ed what had been the NECK OF A CHILD. The latter body, from beiu smaller and not so well clad was burned to a cinder. The little trunk dropped trom its retting place and rolled until a boulder stopped its progress. These two bodies were completly recovered, at least as completely as the flames left them. These two remains of humanity were doubtless all that remained of tie de voted father who perished in attempting to save tne lite oi tne sick and may be crip pled, and therefore, helpless son. The workmen proceeded.

Work ing op, the workmen, by 1 o'clock, had UNEARTHED TWO MORE BODIES, and by 1:30, had exposed two more bodice, eight thus far to day, and eighteen ll told up to the time stated. The bodies recovered to day are in a better condition than the ten discovered yesterday. The flesh of the latter had been completely burned off, leavirg nothing but the cracked splinters of the larger bones. me ooaies to-day, although bu n d b?yona identification, are not burned beyond recog nition as the remains of human beings. Three trunks with the tendons and muscTes torn and burned, were placed in bak'Ha pans, in-; contains tile daily bread of the orphan?.

"Ye?, the books show there were 714 and of this number we have accounted for G63, which leaves sixty-one missing. All the sisters are accountrd for and es caped uninjured except the unfortunate Sister Mary Josephine. Iu addition to the shtes, and there were tliiriy-two of them, there were thirty attendants, all of whom ure accounted for." Eev. Eugene Mhoney, chaplain of the institution was askel by a reporter if the list of the names of the children was in possession ot Mother Superior Dechaotel. He said it wa, and when asked if the re porter could obtain it, he said it was not i for the pnss, and inquired of the reporter if he thoueht the Sisters had made it out for the special benefit of the press. The Sisters, actincr under instructions, refuse any information to the reporters. The to tal insurance is 95.000: estimated Ioes, $150,000.

Senator Morgan moved the matter be considered in secret legislative session. The motion was stconded by Senator Cameron and the doors were ordered closed. "While the order was being executed, Sen ator Conger said : "I call for the other side," to which Senator Cameron, of Wiscon sin, replied : "There is no other side to it," (which raised a laugh at Senator Conger's exrense ) ''as the rules provide that on the demand being at anv time made by two senators the doors oi tne senate snaii oe closed." The senate then went into secret session. During the secret session the doors for a few minutes were considered open for the unrnoss of receiviue a rt Quest from the house for further conference on the naval bill, which request was granted. Senator Butler called for immediate con sideration. The bill was read and Sfntlor Logan opposed it. It permitted, he said, the ex penditure of money not contemplated by congress, as it was based on appropriations from a former venr, manv kms of which would not apply to the cominii year. Senator B.tyard agrre-1 that it was a method derogatory to the proper course of legislation. It was a patching up process not desirable in appropriation bills. S'ili the senate had already accomplished a makeshift, and as large numbers of the house ami some of the senate had gone, he (Bayard) siw no dereliction of duty in adopting, in an emergency, a course that had olrendy been followed. Senator Butler withdrew his call for the consideration of the bill.

Notwith standing the very cold weather, quite a large number of persons assembled iu Du Pont circle this afternoon to witness the ceremonhs connected with the unveiling of the statue of Admiral DuPout. After prayer by Kev. W. A. Lori the statue was unveiled, and Senator Bayard made an ad drts. Senator Bayard, after expressing his ad miration of the htatue j ist unveiled and giviug a rapid summary of the life and s?r vices of Admiral DuPoiu, he said : ' Our age U one of utilitv, and our lives in the new vast country are filled with ceas Iess activity in the creition and acquisition ol material wealth. So society neds other counteracting forces to free us from sordid influence and lead us ;o higher and better lives. Encouragement must be j:iven to pursuits that have not wealth as their aim or reward. There must be an incentive to ouryouth to scan delight and live luxu rious davs and this it is the public duty to supply. Public respect and recognition, virtue exhibited iu the public welfare should be generously and gratelul'y be stowed. Nothing should be omitted that can mould public oponion. to give honor and praise to those who have served worthily and are entitled to the palm of public favor. The night before the battle cf Aboukir Bay, Nelson said to his officers, ''before this time to-morrow I shall have gained a peerage or Westminister Abbey." Such were the rewards his heroic spirit sought. A peerage the officers of the United Stat are forbidden to receive, nor nave we as vet ia our new land a venerable repository for ashes and memo ries of our distinguished dead, but there are public buildings fit to rece.ve the stntues of those who have well served the republic in i . any caning, ana no plce is so proper as this city. The seat and center of the government of tbe United States. The ereciion of this statue is in the line of public justice and a proper recognition of uuseltish devotion of an in dividual for the welfare of the community. The approval of this public act of justice will be widespread in this broad land, but nowhere so strong as in the state in which the ashes of her heroic sob are deposited, and to day the hearts of the people of Del aware, are filled with gratitude iu this recognitionfc'by the general government.
