fa I catalogue of steamboat acci ants.
This afte rn oon about 8 o'clock, the new
elegant steamboat Moselle, - Captain
P rin, left the wharf of this cit'v (full of
gars) for, Louisville and Si.. Louis,
d, with the view of taking a roily on
rd at Fulton, about a utile d a half ]
a ve the quay, proceeded up .he river,
a d made fast to a lumber • raft for that
rpose. Here the family were taken on
rd; and during the whole ti eof the
tention the 'Captain was hold ng on to
41 the steam he could create, wi th nn in.
tCatiooof showing off to the best adven
t the great speed of the boat as she
down the whole length of the city.
' be Moselle was a new brag iboat, and,
ad recently made several exceedingly '
uick trips t 6 and from Ilia riace.
Soon as the family were takeri on - boarck,
torn the raft, the boat shoved eft"; and at I
he very, moment her wheel made the first I
volution, her boilers burst with. a most,
Wriii. and astounding noise, equal to the
oat violent clap of thunder.. The expl&
ion e was destructive and heart.rending in
he extreme, as we ate assured by a gen.
lama' who was sitting on his horse oti
he, shore, waiting to see the boat start.
Heads, limbs, bodies and blood,' were seen
vino through the air in every direction.
ttended by the most horrible shrieks and
igroatiorcom the wounded and the dying.
rile boat, at the moment of the accident,'
;was about thirty feet from the shore, and
f was rendered a perfect wreck. i She seem
led to be tort all to finders, as Ifar hack eir
rho gentlemen's cabin; and her hurricane
) deck (the whole length) was entirely swept
I away. The boat immediately began to
!sink rapidly, and float, with a strong cur
rent, down the river, at the same time
I getting farther from the shore.
The Captain was thrown by the explo
sion entirely intoit he street; and 'Zees picked
up, dead and dreadfully mangled. / Another
man was thrown entirely thrbitgh the rent
ofiute of the neighboring houses, and liinhsj
and fragments of bodies scattered about
the river and shore in heart.tending pre ;
fusion. Soon as the boat was discover
... to be rapidly sinking, the passengers wlei
remained unhurt in the gentlemen's arid
ladies' cabins, became panic struck, and
with a fatuity unaccountable= jumped into
the river. Dein. , above the ordinary busi,
ness parts at the city, there were no boats
at hand except a few large and unmana,ge:
able wood flats, which were carried to the
relief of the sufferers as soon ai'possitile,
by the fhw persons on the *bore. %lady,

We are told that one little boy -on shine i

We have just retiztnedLfrom the scenes
of hewer occasioned byte explosiori,:and
the account before 'NIA- ed, instelid of
being in the slightest deg Tee exaggerated,
as has been intimated by a few., falls far
:kart of the dreadful realitiy. The frag

corpses of a number so +tug led. antitorn,
that they bear scarcely any resemblance
'to the human .form. W also saw several
•with their heads and ar' entirely blown

off; others with only a rt of the head de.
strayed, and others wit their lower ex
tremitim shivered to a n apparent jelly.—
Fragments of the boilers, and other pnriens
of the boat, were: throw from fifty two

having Famed entirely ver theist rows
of buildings on the stree tend a por )on of

Other parts of the, boat . re di 'twee entire

tering through the Wig OWa on isiM side
and passing out at thether. It it posi
tively stated, that one , was picked up

Well. • , ,
, The lower Lek of the boat isyet entire
'lYunder water; cnd when the boat shall be
. reised, a very large numbet of persons, it is
Aspected, will be found.
There are no doubt more persons lost
than we have slated. We conversed, a
while ago, with Mr. Broadwell, the Agent
Of the boat, who rays positively; that there
were ninety-five deck passengers, and
thirty-fite cabin passengers, whose names
were entered on the -boat's "register, at
Oittsburg,' Wheeling, and other towns on
I the river above this place, for Louisville,
Bt. Louis and other places below. Here
then are-one hundred and thirty passen•
gers that must have been on board, exclu-
Ove -of the very large number who took
pavage at this place. The boat was arm-
Wally crowded, and Mr. Bro dwell thinks
the whole number on board, the time of
of the accident, cannot he but li le (deny)
4!.hort of THREE . HUNDRED persons! From the best.information we can getber,
'it does not appear that more than 30 or 40
I:oi this number are known to have been
1 1 rescued. It is therefore probable, that
the whole number drowned or destroyed,
is somewhere in the neighborhood of
TWO HUNDRED OR TWO HUN-. I
DRED AND THIRTY OR FORTY
PERSONS ! It is imposible that any ac
curate detail of the dead and missing can
eve• be made, or the precise number as
certained. A very large portion of them !
were iteckpassengers, w hose liiimble sphere I
in. life will pre clude
. the poisibility of find
ing out their names.
The accident has created a great deal o
excitement and distress in the city; and the
Mayor has issued a proclamation, calling a
public meeting of the citizens at the Coun
cil Chamber, this afternoon, at 3 o'clock.
in order to devise the best means of ascer
taining as near as possible, the number of
persons lost, and the extent of injury in
other respects—as well as to adopt some
plan for burying the dead.
The intelligence, as fa: as received, is
decidedly cheering. Enough, however,
is not yet .known to decide the political
character of the nest Legislature. The
contest in Mr. Patton's district was very
close; but a postcript in the Baltimore
Chronicle , of yesterday announces on the
authority of a gentleman direct from Wash
ington, that dr. Slaughter, the Whig can
didate, had been elected.
In several of the counties, the polls
were not closed until Saturday evening.

the subjoined, :that in Hanover, Powhal ;

comments on the subject to the followitig emphat.

the Whig cause within thr+ years has ad
vanced, and is still progreselng throughout
this country in a ratio hitherto unequalled
in the political history of Or nation, is a
truth which cannot be denied. Every
.election which takes , plach, affords new
proof of the above, and adds fresh vigor to
the Whig cause.. The rectal elections in
Connecticut, Rhode lstanctiand New York
have resulted 'in such a manner that every
true Whig throughout the country has
reason to rejoice, and all that is required
to secure a permanent aseendency in the
nation it, that We should keep our armor
buckled on, and fight mardy and in good
earnest against the principles of the loco

Espress Line of Stages to Phikciel.
phia.—A report has been circolatetr in
our borough; that some of the` pritpors
of the old line of stages are inter ,toted in
the new line, leaving the public td draw
the inference that tt collusive andel-stand
in,g exists for purposes'of deception, ; and
that it makes no difference to their neve, c
tive propnetors which . of these linib is
patronised by the community. This re
port, doubtless, took its origin from a de.
sire to injure the' new line. We are an
thonsed by the proprietors of the new
line to say, that there is not a shadow of
truth in Ibis report, and that there is no
connexion whatever stibsieting between
the proprietors of the old and new line.
We hope -that there will be business
enough for both lines. We are -sorry,
however, to see attempts already making
by those interested in the old- line to drive
the new line from the mote. We do not
believe, however, that they will succeed;
we think the public understand their true
interests better than to suffer such plans
to be successful. .

greater cost than common boilers.
