RUMORS CONCERNING CABI
HUNTING FOR THE BODIES
IN THE CENTRE STREET
Wabiunhion, Dec. .!0.
A special to tin. Times says thus
far it is known that three members of
tho cabinet will positively retito on
tho 4th of March. Fish, Bou'well,
and Williams, all of them will then
tender their resignations. But only
thesobo far nro known that will decline
further service. Fish will retire in
accordance with his own determina
tion long einco expressed, although
tho President has recently expressed
his ver strong desiro to havo him
remain in the cabinet as long as he
remained in the Presidency. IJout
well will ic tiro, whether called to
service in tho Senate or nol. Attor
noyGoneral Williams will likewise
voluntarily decline turthcr oilers of
service. In refercneo to their suc
cessors nothing has yet been devel
oped, .but current gossip mentions
Hon. E. Rock wood Hoar, of Massa
chusetts, for tho Stato Department,
and Hon. E. D. Morgan, of New
York, for Treasurer. Tho transfer of
Secretary Delano to tho same depart
ment, is also suggested.
New York, Dec. 30.
Men cngaed in searching for the
bodies of victims of tho Centre street
tiro exhumed seven this morning,
and before night hopo that they will
havo recovered other bodies of tho
missing. Relatives und friends of
tho victims are nearly heart-broken
at tho delay which occurred. It is
proposed that one hundred able
bodied men, now inmates of tho work
house committed for petty offences,
bo brought from tho Island, and
temporarily incarcerated in tho tombs
that they may bo taken from there
and put to work on tho ruins, und as
a reward for their labors they bo after
ward discharged by tho magistrate
who committed them. Their plan is a
novel ono in punishment for slight
oilVuccs, and is approved by tho com
missioners on Charity nnd Correction.
Yesterday a delegation of the In
ternationales waited upon tho Inspec
tor of Police, nnd requested permis
sion to dig out the bodlesand victims
of tlio Centre street fire. Tho Inspec
tor had no authority in tho mutter.
Before leaving, however, thoy learned
that work had already been com
menced. Tho (settlement of tho claims of
tho Erio railroad against Jav Gould
is still in progress, and not likely to
bo completed for several days, as all
tho deeds are noi, copied. Barlow
hnd an interviow Saturday with
Gould's counsel, nnd reports every
thing satisfactory. Most of tho deeds
havo been signed and copied, and tho
remainder will receivo nttcntion

Tho members of tho American Club,
in sympathy with tho death of Dr.
Townloy, adopted resolutions appoint
ing ten members to act as pall benr
ors; that tho club pallors bo draped
in mourning for thirty days, and
re uesting tho members to join in tho
funeral ceremonies; thnt a copy of
tho resolutions be &ent to tho friends
of tho deceived and the. press, and
that the resolutions bo enrolled upon
tho minutes of tho club. Tho funeral
takes placo to-morrow.
New York, Dec. 30.
A fire occurred at 7 o'clock yester
day evening in tho shoo btoro of
Mendall Jacob--, CC Baxter street,
involving a lo.-s ef $5,o00 on the
stock nnd building. Partly insured.
To-day, by thodirccJiun of Coroner
Herman, a largo force of laborers
weie bet to work to remove tho ruins
of tho lato fire on Centre Htr'ect, and
to discover tho bodies of tho victims
burned. After thieo hours work one
man found tho burned and mutilated
body of a girl, who was recognized
by a ring on her finger, nnd proved
to bo tho body of Jano Stuart, a girl
employed in tho building. Up to (J
o'clock last avening no more bodies
wore discovered. , Tho policemen
have formed lines in front of the
building, and all traflic has been

thinning out; it is still vory heavy.
Tho stenmor A. J. White, fearing the
breaking of another gorge, got up
steam nnd pushed iter way through
tho ice, and landed safely below.
The Bteamor Yearger id on tho op

Arlington dropped down last ovoning
and took a placo nt tho landing. Tho
steamer Bello Leo wns aground Sat

Tender is at Edward's Point, soventy
fivo miles down tho rivor, nnd is in
safe hnrbor. Tho Bteamor .Mary
Boyd, with eight hundred bales of
cotton, is four miles below hero, nil

that the tug boat Webstor wns wink

J. O. Baker, a produco boat, with
nineteen hundred bushels of potatoes
from Malinda, 111., was nlbo Mink.
Tho river rose thrco nnd a hulf feet

December 31, 1872.
Cincinnati, Dec. 20.
The tug-boatrt hao broken up tho
ico between Newport and Covington
liridiro, leaving tho river i'reo of ice
tho length of tho harbor. Below the
Ohio :tud Covington bridge the Ice
wns solid, nnd Wits crowded with
skaters, if tlio gorgo hero should
break away first, or as pooh
us tho gorgo above, all
will bo well. This, however,
is hardly probable as the gorges below
aro much ltcaricr titan thoso above.
Ono gorgo was reported to bo sixteen
miles in length, and piled up six or
eight fivt high. Tho steamboat men
are very anxious as to tho result, anil
their ltojo is that it will not rain.
Memphih, Dec. 30.
Tho steamer Webster which sunk
nt Helena, was valued nt $0,000, and
insured in Pittsburg and Wheeling
companies. A produco boat, owned
nt Galena, ill., ami containing 2.000
barrels of potatoes, was sunk nnd lost.
She was insured in tho New York
Mercantile Mutual for $5,000. The
entire coal flcut ut Helena, fomccight
on ten barges in nil, was swept away,
on Saturday night, and sunk. Three
more produce boats were crushed in
the Ice, and are a total lo-s.
