LATE STEAMBOAT EXPLOSION.
Pearful Condition of the - Passengers--
Attempts at • Rescue—The Killed" and
The - telegiaph; on Thursday; afternoon,
furnished full Particulars of the, disaster to
the - steamboat Magnolia on.the Ohio river,
between Cincimaati and Maysville, on
Wednesday. ri m v 'the Cincinnati papers
we glean the following additional 'partieu
Jars. The Enquirer says:
One of the most terrible steamboat disas
ters that has occurred in this vicinity_ since
the bloWini rip of Mozelle, took place
yesterday, a. short distance below California,
at the mouth of Crawfish, and about seven
miles up the,river.
The ill-fated boat was the Magnolia, one
of the regular Chkeinnati and Boat
packets, and the, most popular Boat upon
tho line. She left her- dock at the, usual
honk, 12 with, as is estitnated, fully one
hundred and six pasSengers on board, and
in about an hour afterwards the .e - Ai.plosion
'Mr. Gus' Miller,. who resides-A:visite
where the cataStrephesiceurred, put, offin a
skill to the rescue of the unfortunates on
board. He, states that after the explosion
the boat went some distance . ahead r and he
pulled a milo beibre the flames burst forth,
so that he estimates the interval at nearly
ten ,minutes. When - he-arrived - - near the
wreck, a most fearful sight presented'itself.
Beneath the guards a dozen . men were
clinging; and shrieking' for - help, while
the dames were seething their heads,'hands
and faces.. ... • • ' -
'rhe heat was so intense that it was im
possiple for the skiffs to approach' near
'enough for their: rescue, and one by bne
they dr,-...-pped into the water.: Ono man who
still ,renatmed on the boat, with a little
girl in his arms, Shouted to the men in the
skiff- "for God's' sake to !save the child."
While the fire was scorching behind, until
the:heat.becoming intolerabie, he:dropped
the little girl - into the water,, and then
jumped overboard himself. --
In the meantime other skiffs had put out
from the Ohio shore, and by desperate ex. ,
ertion - Many persons, principally ladies,
were rescued from .the burning wreck.
Two, however, were swept beneath the
guards, and every effort tow,rescue the
was in vain. One . .man Was , seen- haning
to the hog-cliai?,,t his beard.-and the hair of
his head burning. Mr. Miller Shouted to
him to let go, and he dropped- into the
water and was saved,, although' terribly- in
jured by the flames. Another, badly
burned, was taken off the rudder, 'but tho

that but short. time was votteliSafed either

The steamer Panther, too, was headed -as
rapidly as pessible•te the scene of the dis
aster, and brought a great 'number of the
unfortunate people to the city._ The scene
on these_boats....ms of the most harrowing
deseription. litany of the Poor creatures,
half charred, were moaning pitebusly,while
others lay in a state of stupor,, happily, for
the.time being,,oblividus to their
condition. During;the progress to he city

'could suggest, and nothing was left undene
that enind in any wise alleviate' their 61.1 -

The books were all destroyed, SO "ttiat it
is impossible, at this time, to ascertain how
many, passerigers there 'were on board, and
how many perished. • And this suggests not
only the; expediency, but the necessary pre
caution which should be adopted by, all
passenger steamers before quitting port, of
leaving-a duplicate register. In thepresent
case it may be impossible to ascertain how
many haVe been lost by this terrible dis
aster.l ' '' •
