Two steamboatsvof Jthe Stonington

here that ono of the steamers sunk

STONINGTON , June 12 , 4 p. m. The
survivors describe the scene which oc
curred on the sinking of the boat immediately -
. mediately after the collision as horri
ble. Passengers rushed frantically
in every direction , shrieking
and crying Many of them plunged
into the water. There was consider
able delay in lowering boats. Many
of the rescued passengers were badly
scalded. A dense fog prevailed at the
time of the accident.
V From the statement of several pss
) eengers it is estimated that about 60
were lost. One young man
deliberately ehot Vhimself when
the cry of * fire was raited.
The boat sank BO quickly
that many must have been unable to
get out of their state rooms. One

Most of the children saved were en

was also ssved. It is stated that' two
gentlemen , cabin pissengers , when it
app red that the vessel could not be

deliberately blowed their brains out.
An old lady , Margaret Muir , nf Brook

in all directions. I followed a number
of men and jumped into the water ,

started to swim to the steamer that ,
had collided with us. A young naval
cadet accompanied me. I think we i

more mournful Sabbath in the town
of Stunington has never been known ,
and the good people'are'bowed down
with grief. Scenes at the depot and
near the wharves and morgue' have
been heartrending , and he would be a
very Kardened"pers'jn who would not
ba torched by them.
It is impossible to estimate the num
ber of peopla'lost , notwithstanding
nearly forty-eight hours have elapsed
since the accident. It is stated that
, here were in the vicinity of 300 pas
sengers on board. Of this number
about,125 , have been landed at New
[ York and a like number here , though
the latter are conjectured , from the
fact that when the Stonington arrived
here Saturday a large number of pas-
senjren were buried on the trail ? with
out being ; counted or their names
taken. During the day yesterday
there V re numerous applications for
descriptions of bodies. It is satisfac
tory to be able to state that all bodies
nowhere have been identified by per
sonal recognition or description. The
number brought in here has been six ,
and their names are as follows : Rov.
Mr. Leonard , of Fifty-eighth street ,
New York ; Rev. A. E. Ptarl , of Phil
adelphia , who came up tp preach at
Westerly ; Mrs. R. B.aheckly , , Brooklyn -
lyn , who was supposed to have lost
her child and died of fright ; Chas C.
Clarke , 57 Bright slroet , Jersey City.
The fifth one was William Noyes ,
a drummer , of New York , recognized
personally by Alex. Carmichaul , of
Westerly , who states that Noyes wet
coming to sec him.
The sixth one was a child , hand
somely drc'sed , about five years of
age. A full description having been
sent out , "tho following dispatch was
received last night from Boston :
ujhe ? tfody of number six is my
boy. Will call to-morrdw. "
It was signed by William Slovens *
It is not known who was in charge of
the child , but the recognition i ? com
Yesterday afternoon A. P. Dix , of
Brooklyn , a gentleman doing busi
ness at27 Wall street , arrived hero
in search of his thrco children. Ho
was accompanied by his brother. It
would appear thatMrs. Dix. and her
thruo chhdron , aged 11 and U years ,
and one three months old , and their
nurse , left New York oa the steamer
Narrag insett. The mother has boon
saved , but there is not the slightest
trace of the three children or the
nurse. ' Mr. Dix was taken to the
morgue , but did not recognize any One
there. His condition of mind can bo
better imagined than described. Mr.
Dix also went to the wreck , but was
unable to di-cover anything regarding
the whereabouts of Jits family.
The cutter Dexter arrived here last
tiight and brings word from Captain
Scott that he has examined the after
part of the vessel and finds the falcon
leek burned through in several places.
Captain Scott says the wreckers can
leo into the state rooms on the main r
leek. No bodies w re found there or
ilsewhere. The freight is being taken

jage have been removed. No one has

Illinois , to be examiner in chief in the

The attorney general expressed
himsalf asdecidedly opposed to the
marshal bill before passing the house ,
with the slight amendment of the
senate. This is considered to bo a
very good indication that the bill will
be vetoed. People at the-white house ,
who are generally well posted in such
matters , say it will be vetoed. Repre

expresses the opinion that the bill will

For obvious reasons he declined to ,
3 interviewed , but in the coarse of'a' foi
ng and most interesting conversa- ' by
on he said among other things hi an-
rer to The Herald correspondent :
"My nomination was a complete onM
irprise to me. When I left the hotel M
i tbe morning I had no idea of such Ti
possibility. I was in a peculiar po
tion in the convention , and at the
in ,
st wink of assent to any scheme or
imbination in my own bahalf a hun- ovPC
: id men would have been quick to
targe me with treason to my friends <
id my state. "
"How , 'then , do you account for
) ur nomination ? "
"Well , it was the result of what is
illed horae sense , I suppose. I re- M
ember at the battle of Mountain fo
idge the enemy had sixty cannon on etM
ie ridge commanding the slopewhich M
as wooded. Onr forces lay at the te
irt some two m31esvaw4y osjt of reach teP

vance and drive the rebels from the
rifle pits at the foot of the ridge and
nothing else. When our boys ad
vanced the rebels ran , and then , with
out an order from Grant or any other
general the men , who couH see what
they in the rear could not , suddenly
took it in their heads to rush up the
mountain and capture those guns.
They did so , and immediately
10,000 men were on their way up ,
runniug , shouting- and cheering as
best they could until they reached the
ere strand captured sixty guns and
7000 prisoners. Now that's applica
ble hero to this extent only. The
delegates had come here from differ
ent sections of the country , with prej
udices for and against candidates. Af
ter the differences on matters of prin-
: iple had been pleasantly adjusted
they found themselves in a dead-lock
which bade fair to last long , doing
harm to the party and bringing ridi
cule upon them. Out of this sudden
ly they thought they saw Jivay , and
quick as a flash , unguided and unor
dered they took the path , and that's
all there is of it. "
"Do you feel sanguine of success at
the polls ? "
"Well , I hardly care to discuss that
npvr , although I do believe we will be
victorious. You see there are some
peculiar points about this nomination.
Its the first time a candidate was ever
taken from congress and the first time
a candidate was taken from the dele
gates. Horatio Seymour was nominated
by a convention over which he wes
presiding. Here both candidates are
delegates. They are selected by their
own associates , their comiades in fact ,
and I believe that spirit of comradeship
Will be carried by them out to the
country and that good results will
follow. "
"General , it is said that dispatches
received here this evening foreshadow
the nomination of Mr. Payne by the
democrats. Have you heard so ? "
"I have. "
"Do you know Mr. Payne ? "
"I do. He and I are directors in a
Cleveland savings bank , and are warm
friends socially as well. "
"Is l.o a hard money man ? "
"He was at first and all his interests
are that way , but he yielded after a
little and joined the silver craze. We
bad quite a discussion on the subject
in congress. "
"How would Tilden like the idoi ? "
"Mr. Payne's daughter is married
; o your corporation counsel , Mr.
Whitney , who is quite a favorite with
Mr. Tilden , and I infer that Mr.
Payne would acceptable there , but of
this I do not know anything and do
iot care to speak. "
"New Yorku indebted to you very
argely for General Arthur's nomina-
"Well , yes ; when my nomination
yas made our delegation gathered
iround me , and I said , 'Now , don't
i peak to me , but put your minds on
he subject of vice { .resident for my
lake and the party's sake. ' You can
eadily understand that the proper
hing to do was what New York wish-
id , and I regard it particularly fortu-
iate that General Arthur was select-
