The train, worth $150,000, was entirely demol ished. Convicts and others are working to remove the debris. It is thought all bodies have been re coveml. A large crowd gath ered and every train brought now arrivals, some relatives of the wounded and dead. The bodies were embalmed and sent to their homes. Twenty-two persons were killed, and possibly one more lady in the sleeper. I his is a surmise. Twenty-six are wounded, seventeen of whom are here, cared for by hos pitable people. Others have been carried to their homes. .uosi oi mem win recover. Mr. Sink, the bridegroom, is dan gerously hurt. His bride will re cover. Two theories are advanced as to the cause. Superintenden Bridgers says: "I have seven spikes showing plainly on both sides the marks of the crow-bar in pulling out. the bolts holding the dates together lad been taken were laying by the side of the and plainly showed that a neh had been used in taking litem oil'. As long as no repairs made to the track apparently ry person present agreed that a forty feet east of the viaduct iu norm siue iiau been removed. tools with which this work 1 have been done were in 1,200 f the bridge."

There is still great excitement here over the accident at Third creek. Friends of the dead and injured are flpcking hr-re. It is a source of wonder to those who -see the wreck that any life was saved. The total dead now number twenty two and the injured twenty six. The dead are beini; embalmed as fast as possible and sent to their late homes, and the injured are receiving the warm hearted hospitality of the Statesville people. Tjie following is a list of the names of dead besides those given last night: Charles Tebber, of Pittsburg, Pa.; Mrs. Frank JfTiite, of Memphis, Tenn.; Henry Patterson, colored; unknowrn woman with a ticket from Reidsville to Corinth, Miss., and a testament containing thf "name of A.

Y., Aug. 28 There was a cloud-burst in the mountains, near Sand Lake, about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and the dam age resulting was the heaviest ever known in this vicinity from such a cause, rhe great rainfall ' for the past two days had swollen themoun tain streams that enter into Glass House lake into torrents. The lake rose rapidly, but no fears were en tertained unt;T the cloud-burst occurred. Then the rain came down in sheets. Nothing like it had ever been experienced. For several hours the storm did not abate a particle, but seemed rather to increase. Glass House Lake rose with startling rapidity. In a little while the water cononsenc ed to creep up towards Gla House hotel which was filled with guests. It was not long before the first story 4 had to be abandoned and all the in mates congregated on the upper Hoors. The flood rushed toward the town of Sliter's Corners, about three fourths of a mile away, sweep ing before it bridges and buildings. At Slater's Corner. All the bridges were washed away as though they had been made of" straw. The water rushed on towards Averill Park and spread over the Hats for nearly a mile. Hater pour ed through the Beverwick hosiery mill; the goods were completely ruined. The volume of water re leased bv the breaking of the dam carried destruction in its path. Everything went before it, and the country for miles around was Hooded. . . Ihatalloodot such seriousness as this could occur and lives be lost seems almost impossible. It it is expected that when communi i Lion is restored there will be re ports of missing persons. The cut ting away of the mountain forests is largely responsible for thi3 and similar floods. All travel on the east side of the river was suspend ed and New York trains this morn ing went down on the west side to Albany. , The damage is variously esti mated from $250,000 to $500,000. The Hoosick river caught the force of the cloud-burst, and tie Lebanon prings railroad is washed out, and where the track stood the Hoosick river is running like a mill race. All the railroad bridges in Berlin and Petersburg are gone, and sev eral houses in the latter village are partially turned over. The wires are all down and communication is cut off.

The cablegram comes from a source, which houses interesled in the Chilian trade here state, is dis interested and authentic. Washington, Aug. 28 The acting Secretary of State Depart ment to-day received the following from U. S. Consul McCreary at Valparaiso : "Valparaiso, August 28. Battle fought near city this morning. Government forces badly beaten. Heavy loss both sides. City surrendered to opposition, but in hands of p,dmirals of American, German, French and English fleets for good order. No communication with Santiago. Opposition forces now entering the city." Charles R. Flint, the Chilian Consul, stated to-day that he was inclined to doubt the news received here yesterday' to the effect that the insurgents had surrendered to Bal maceda. He is confident that if such were the case he would have been cabled the news at once. The first dispatch comes from Santiago, a hundred miles away irom the veution that he will withdraw from the contest.

Georgetown, Ivy., August 28. About 1 o'clock this morning 125 masked men marched into town on horse dack and going directlv to the jail where were confined Frank Durley, the negro who. killed Far mer Hughes on Monday night, and also the Kendalls, jailed for killing the Jarvis Bros, in the streets of that city yesterday. They demand ed the key to their cell. The jailor at first refused, but tjfter viewing the mob he saw it was useless to resist their demand and handed the keys to the leader. Some of the cooler headed members of the mob were then'selected to go into the jail and bring out Dudley and the five Ken dalls, father and four sons, but the latter hegged piteously and were al lowed to remain in the-cell. Dud ley was found lying in one corner of the eell. He was hurried out into the street, and after a short consultation th mob took him to a small wood, half a mile this side of Georgetown, and swung him up to a limb. The members of the mob then dispersed. They were from Frankford, Midway and Stamping Ground. The reason assigned for allowing the Kendalls to remain unhurt when their crime was worse than the Dudley's, is that the mob was composed of Franklin and Woodford county men, and they did not want tomeddle with a Scot county affair.
