Niw : YOUK , Oct. 10 , Ifja. m. The 2sO,000
pounds of dj namlto under Flood Uock , Hell
Gate , lias just been exploded.
In order to protect ; life and pioperty at
Flood Hock explosion to day the most careful
ful and complete arrangements had been per
fected. A foieoof 150 j police in addition to
the haibor police wore detailed near the
scenu of action. Ul.ickviclPslsland contained
n detachment of one hunched men ,
while one hundred were on dtitj
at Ward's Island. All buildings on the north
end of Ulackvv ell's Island wereelearcd of In
mates , including the ahnshouse , woikhome
and lunatic asylum , who weie massed on the
law us at a safe distance from the explosion
and eaietully giiaided. In thepenltenthiiy
the cell doois were thrown oiien and thepiis-
oners conducted outshle. Tlie walls ot the
prison weiesimouiidcd by police , while ti
laigoloico was stationed among the con
victs to prevent riot or escape.
Ail points on tbc shore 1 nun which Flood
Hock could be teen weie tlenselj packed
with people. The police weie kept busj in
keeping the eremd outshle the dangei fine.
Hopes had been stietchcd aeioss theiivei
above tuid below the place of explosion , and
launches tioin tlio navy jaid pati oiled the
rlvei tebce that no vessels attempted to pa s
through. When the bell In the towei ol
btanu'B school building stinck 11 ,
fifty thousand people weio wait
ing expectantly lei the explosion
which w as aelveitlsed to occur at that hour ,
but at that moment a number of people were
still on Flood Hock. A few moments later ,
howevei , . ! tugboat took them off , ami then
the spectatois braced themselvs lei the ex
pected shock. Ladies and gentlemen in cai-
i lages stood upon tliiMctishions and leveleil
opeia classes towiud thtj Isiantt.
A hushed expectancM tell upon fhe vast
etovvd. The livci in tjioiclnit > of Flood
Hock and llallatt's "point was now tleai
ot CJl-els. At n icspoctfiil distance
howevei , M'oies of excursion stcameis ,
jacht.sand tugs weie crovvelcd wlthjieople
who waited lor the pleasing of the eicttiie
button. At pieelsely 11MJ o clock the bosom
of ilvei was pierced with amiihtv
ot locks and timber. Up , up , went tlie glit
tering masses ot watei Minlil It ncemed as If
It ncvc'i would slop. At n height of twolmn-
clicd teet the nnlilted waters imiseel and tell
back again to the ilCcr.
Marv Newton , the 11-year-old daughter of
Gen. Newton , touched the button which liictl
theelectiie euiient tint eijiloded thehiih-
maiine mines. 'J'hls Is the ; same child who
C'xploded the fust Hell Gate explosion.
Tlie shoe kot the explosion was felt onlj slight

lai distant sutitenanean thnndei. When
Flood Hock h id been exploded a m isof
bioken wieck was seen on lop e > f it. The bier
deirlck which had been left to lit. late tinned
overon itsshle , broken. Tlie.hnge tank which
had been lei t at the north eiid of the island , still

'Hie unginet'is , ol wlumi ( icnerat Newton
was chief , did not , as was expected , make a
thorough examination of the work done by
the explosion tills afternoon. A tug boat
with a lew persons on bond cinised about in
tlie vicinity ot the place , but no soundings
were taken.
The work of surveying the bed of the river
w 111 be commenced next week , and it w ill not
be know n until after this sin v ej is m ule just
what the effect of the explosion has been.
One of the engineers to-night In speaking ot
tliu work done by the dynamite and lond-
lock , said that so tai as his observations had
extended the explosion was eminently a suc
cess. Flood rock was notbmicd out of sight.
Itsankpcihaps tlnee or four feet and that
'koine had nfflimcil that the bed of the river
would beso bioken and jagged with rocks
that the mldelle clianuvi would become Im
passable until the debils was removed. Such
did not piovo to be the tact. The sound
steamers expeiienced no dillienlty whatevei
in making theii tiip tlinnuh the channel.

If the work ot the ele < tiic euiient failed at
au.v point to ili chaigo the caitiidgcs it was
piobably nndei the lock known as "Nigger
Uock" opposite the eluctiic light stand on
Ilallelt's point. The keepei of the liu'bt
who watched the upheaval ot the waters , si Id
that the watei at that point was not ells-
tuibcd. It might be.Jiowevei , that he was
mistaken. The engineei felt confident ( hat
an examination nt thu bottom ot thoiivci
would show that the locks weie slmttcud.
Captain John homers , ol the light house boat
John Hogeis , attei the explosion , said : "We
