The great calamity which occur
red yesterday in Hampshire county,
Mass., is the subject of comment of
all the papers here. Severe reflec
tions are made by several papers on
those having charge of the reservoir,
for carelessness in not ascertaining
their dangerous condition.
The Herald says the disaster
showed it was badly built and been
badly examined. There ia no ex
cuse for building a reservoir that will
burst into a death dealing, desola
ting tide under the influence of the
first spring rains.
Much sympathy is expressed for
the sufferers here, and a movement
will no doubt be started at once to
extend substantial aid to them.
A Herald special from Springfield
says that the flood in Hampshiro
county was nothing more or less
than the result of an insecure, ill
constructed reservoir. The dam is
about nineyears old and has receiv
ed few, if any repairs, since its con
struction. Common rumor at Williamsburg
says it has been pronouned unsafe
for three years back. The watch
man who discovered the leak,
thought little of it at first, but when
it widened and tho water rushed
through in a rapidly increasing
volume, he grew alarmed and has
tened to notify the inhabitants in
the village below. He started on a
run for Williamsburg, two miles off,
but long before he reached it the
embankment gave way and the
mass of water was at Williamsburg
before him. He took refuge on a
neiirhborinc hill to save his own
life. At Haydenville the people
thought the approaching mass was
firo, am rang the fire bells. In a
few seconds after the place was in
undated by a resistless torrent.
Many ot the manufactories destroy
ed will probably never be re-opened.
The blow has been a sad disaster,
not only to life but to commercial
interests of the large, busy district.
In twenty minutes after the inun
dutlou'the water perceptibly fell and
continued to "fall sJowly; .
Boston, May 17.
A special dispatch from North
ampton to the Globe, gives tho fol
lowing additional details of the ter
rible mill river disaster: Tho total
loss of life is not yet known, but
from returns recently made, it
appears that 127 bodies have been
identified, while others were found
and Lurried unidentified. There is
no doubt but that'so'me of the bodies
were carried Into tho Connecticut
river, and perhaps will never be seen
again. The bodies were tossed
about wildly, and thrown frequently
In contact' with hard substances,
and in most eases were stripped
naked; and badly bruised. In Wil.
liamsburg, a good many French
mill operatives were lost, and as
they were almost total strangers,
their names could not be ascer
tained. In Leeds, a woman was
found in the fork of a tree, ten feet
from tho ground. Seven members
of a French family, named Burnett,
A later special to tho Globe says
the danger Is now over and people
are now beginning to understand
the deplorable condition of affairs.
One hundred and fifty persons have
been lost Many survivors are
homeless, penniless and destitute;
weeping women and children are a
common sight in the streets of the
ruined villages. Many bodies are
stil unclaimed; in one carpenter's
shbpjin Leeds there are 47 corpses; in
the Leeds school house are'9; in the
vestry of the Congregational
church, Haydensville, there are 9,
most of thesp have been claimed by
friends. Provisions" are going for
ward from Northampton. Offers
of assistance have been received
from the authorities of New Haven
and Watertown, Connecticut,

The destruction by the bursting
of the reservoir has been more gen
eral and complete than was at first
supposed. The break in the reser
voir occurred about daylight, al
most immediately a torrent of water
swept down on the villages of Haj--denville,
Williamsburg and this
village. The buildings could not
withstand the immense force of the
flood, and were dashed to fragments
or swept on entirely; many in the
latter case with inmates in them at
the time. Not a single frame build
ing that stood before the flood in
any proximity to the reservoir now
remain standing. It is impossible
at present to state how many per
sons perished, but serious appre
hensions are entertained that the
scene will disclose terrible results.
