The Brandt Explosion. The sad acci
dent by which two persons lost their live3
and several were Ecalded is but one of hun
dreds signalizing the careless way in which
people act when off 44 enjoying" themselves.
Whenever an excursion leaves for any point
removed from the city every care should be
1 used to see if the boats or means of convey
ance are really safe. The old regulations
about steamers being inspected regularly,
and the owners fined very heavily if they
engage to carry passengers without provid-
ing perfectly secure boats should be enforced.
We give the following account of the ac
cident from the Jeurnal :
This accident of which vVc speak occurred
as the steamer Brandt was returning from
an excursion' to the Black . Fish gjound,
about i' o'clock on the afternoon of Mon
day last, tho 5th instant, and "when within
about four or five miles of the city, l Every
fhntr liad seemed to have conspired to make
the trip pleasant. The day- had-been - fine
and propiticus,-Uie;spqrt rare and; tho ex
n'niiitnnmbennff In? all - betweea : 25
and 60 persbDB were joyous and nappy..
The young meOf or wmco m p "
principally composed, had ccTer seemed
brighter or merrier, and had passed the day
fnus racrtT-janil and
mx)ltuty:xit, white rpnfteiJiCt.wi&poV
with everv exhibition of pleasure. The boat
wa speeding easily and, finely on Us way
and soon the city would be in full .sight
But suddenly there came: one of those terri
ble shocks, when in a moment all gaiety is
repressed and grim death. looraVop in'iti
most terrible torm. The noise of xn explo
sion was heard, a shock felt, and In a mo
ment the whole after part of the boat waa
immersed in hot steam. In an instant it be
came evident that the boiler had burst
the extent of the damage none could then
tell. Among those aft were Messrs. Wm. B.
Mearesv Chas. R. Arey and Ed. H. Eilers, all
young men in the full vigor of youth.4 As
the hot steam covered them?with its scorch
ing breath, a chance of life in the waters or
certain death by scaldinc on the boat ieem
d presented to their minds. Messrs. Meares
and Arey sprang overboard, and Mr.. Eilers
!was knocked with them in the 8pring.k- i
a, few moments the steamer was free of
steam and deprived of the power of motion
except such as the former headway and the
iorce of the current gave..! All attention was
instantly attracted to the three persons in
the water. Tho boat continued to leave
them rapidly and great difficulty was expe
rienced by them iu keeping afloat, burdened
down as they were with the weicht of their
clothes. ' It 8oo n became apparent that un
less speedily rescued they would be drowned.
Eager hands instantly flew to and launched
the steamer's boat, and into it one of the
gentlemen sprang. But Its condition was
such that the water poured in through tht
bottom, it soon filled and finally turned
over and its occupant, instead of being able ;
to rescue his friends, was forced to cling to j
the bottom tor life. To tlie aid of the struer-!
gling men life-preservers were thrown, but
the tide was running up and these could not
be reached or were not seen. Fortunately
the steamer Waccamaw, With a party of
colored excursionists was coming on behind,
and was but about from one to two miles
off, and was making all headway, seeing the
accident, to tho rescue. A boat was lower
ed ivhen within about a hundred yards, but,
alas, ere it came up one of the party had
sunk to rise no more. Messrs. Arey and
Eilers were taken in completely exhausted
and in a sicking condition boh had in
fact sunk two or three times. Mr. Meares
was no whero to be seen, j Just verging into
manhood, ripe in the enjoyment of youth
and vigor, in the full flush of health and
happiness, he thus met his untimely end.
