Noon. Partic ulars ot the breakiug of StaSordsville datu itre wanting, as are also details of damage done. Enough, however, is known to show that everything in the path of the flood has been cleaned out. HARTFORD, March 2. Particulars o the disaster by the breaking of the Stat- fondille dam, are still wanting. The only thine certain i that the dam has gone and the damage is very great. l'he following is a description of the dam and rurrouodine country; The reser voir belonged to the Reservoir Company, owners of the mills in the stream below. The dam was raised 6 leet, the past win ter, and the storm last night filled it for the first time. Close by the reservoir stood the satinet mill of E-A. Oouve; next the shoddy mill of Jacob b isch; then the machine shop ot Samuel A. Midon; lower down was the ,1'hoeuix Manufacturing Company's cassimere mill at Hydesville: three miles below, the Glen Mills cotton warp factory stood. At Glenville the Con verseville Manufacturing Company's cassi meremill and G. M. lvess granite mill for making cotton goods were in the stream at Stafford Spriags about five miles from the dam. The reservoir was about a mile and a quarter long, and avcraeed a quarter of a mile in width. The drm was about twenty feet Lih but short, the stream bed beinc narrow tor some distance below. ThtS ivater is the head of the Williatnautic river. Six years aco a dam in a tributary stream above here save way and caused great damage. The only wire to S t afford -ville is owtud by the New London North ern Kailroad Company, Providence, It. I., March 27. A Hart ford dispatch to the Bulletin sayn Stafford ville re.-ervoir dam gave way this forenoon, sweeping evurv'liing ahm the valley from Staffer Jville through Old iurnace to Stafford Spnncs. lhe rsatioual bank at Suftordville, the Congregational church. L. . Crane's store, tue freight depot and all the houses on the islaud at Stafford Springs were destroyed. All the bridges between the scene of the disaster and Tolland were washed away. The prob able loss in Stafford alone is $2,000,000. No loss of life is reported. Loss in Stafford ville is very heavy, the heavy mills suffering more or less damage and work will have to be suspended in them until the reservoir can be rebuilt, E. V. Converse & Co.'s mills have four sets cards and a thousand spindles, and employ a large number of hands; the Home Co., Home M'f. Co., and Home Woollen Co.. are also situated there. The atter runs 3,300 spindles. The Stafford- ille v ooien Company has three sets of irds. The exact loss of these compa 1 A .-i v r -i nies is utiunown. At Manoru springs are the mills ot Lharles rex & Co. six sets of cards, of Converse company with seven sets of cards and 1800 spindles in jliis. Converse & Co. ; the Universal SpringB Manufacturing Co., six sets of cards, 1740 spindles; in the Stafford Ore Vallev Co.'s mills, 2000 spindles; Granite mills 5500 spindles; ailey Manutacturing Co., Phoenix woollen muls, and Kossiter Co., each with four sets of cards; the Granite mills and tenement hocses at Stafl'ordv'ile were all swept away and also stores and store houses. State Sena tor Julius Con5rse telegraphs that all the dams on the stream from Staffordville to a noint below the Springs, with all the bridges, are gone. Probably not less than 30 houses were destroyed and the loss will he verv large. The dam was considered safe but heavy rains on Monday afternoon and evening filled the reservoir to over flowing. The breaking sway was wholly unexpected, but the reservoir being set some distance above the village the alarm reached the people m time tor them to escape, it is ttiougnt that l or lives were lost, lhe valley is made a complete wreck.

As you express a desire for a nersonal con ference with myself, I accept, through motives of proper courtesy to yourself, the invitation you have extended, though I cannot hope by doing so to throw additional icht upon the questions which have already been sn ably aud thoroughly resented, and the solution of which is so obvious and simple.

TAMMANY, No Evidence Against Oakey Hall The Slatter of Settling with, the Kings ters Indefinite as Tet, New York, March 26. The Evening Post has an account of an interview with Wheeler H. Peekhi.ru, of counsel for the people in the ring prosecutions, who de clares that, ho far as he knew, not a dollar of ring plunder had been traced to Hall He had received no instructions to prosecute him again, and had no intention of doing so. It was possible that Tweed, oodward and Sweeney were crammed with evidence against Hall, but if this was the case not one word of it had reacned bim (Peekham), and he thought he would be pretty likely to know ot it it any one did. Tweed, he understood, had always asserted that Hall shared in the profits ot the ring.but he knew of no fresh disclosures in the matter. As to the alleged maDU factured report.in Hall's handwriting, of a meeting of the board of audit, which never took place, Peckbata said this paper had been in evidence in the trial of every ring suit, and that the theory of the prosecution had always been that said meeting was never held, ihere was Dot a word of truth ia the report of the nego tiations for settlement in the case against Sweeney, aud not even a proposition had been maae or suggested on Sweeney s be half to the counsel for a proposition, Mr, Peekham also stated that the whole matter ot the settlement with 1 weed was indefinite. Townsend, bis counsel, bad simply "proposed to make a proposition. but the proposition had not yet been made "Officer Olson is about, but has a severe pain in his side, the result of Gor man's kicks, but he will probably be all right in a few days.

One well directed biow by him, calmed the savage breast of Gorman to such an exteut that he at once accepted the invitation to go to the calaboose. fifeir"'Three intoxicated Swede men, while passing Henry Calentzky's saloon Sunday night, stopped in front of a window, and got into a quarrel, during which a light ot glass was broken. Henry ran out and asked the first one he saw who broke the window, and being told, " None of your business. Go to h 1,' he punched him one, for which, on complaint of the Swede, Calentzky was fined $5 by Magistrate Swander yesterday. tThe remains ot Mn. Julia Smith were buried yesterday in Riverside cemetery. The arrangements and expense of the funeral were taken charge of by the German friends ot deceased, and she was not buried at the expense ot the county as stated in this morning's Union. It is but fair to the German citizens to notice the geoerous manner in which they provide for their indigent; proportionally few of that nationality ever asking support cr assist atice from the county. Bar' I his morning Ivan Uorman was taken before Magistrate Swander on com. plaint cf Olof Olson for resisting an officer, aud plead guilty to the charge. Fifty dol lars and costs of suit was entered up against him. Mr. Harwood secured the amount aud Gorman was released.
