posits Port Huron, n the Mississippi river,
at 1 1.45 next morning, causing the loss of the
steamer and about forty lives. The Anchor
line steamer City of St. Louis, Captain James

None of the injured pre expected to die.

C ipt T. C. Sweeney, slightly hurt by flying

The Corona was on her Ibsc trip of the
season, and bad but recently come out o' the
dryndock,where she received repairs amount
ing to nearly $12,000. Sbewnabuiltat Wheel
ing, W. Va., by the Sweeny Brothers, of that
city, seven years atro, and had a carrying ca
pacity of about 2,700 bales of cotton. At the
time of the accident she was valued at $2U,0(K.
Mr, Robertson, one of the injured, says
when the Corona arrived opposite False river
landing, about sixteen mile below Bayou
Sara, one of her boilers exploded, tearing the
boat to pieces, when she sank in deep water
in a few seconds. Mrs. Robertson says she
was wedged in the ladies' cabin, with some of
the debris lying across her lower limbs, but
was suddenly released and found herself
floating fu tbo river. She sank twice, but
luckily was picked up and escaped with only
a few bruiies. . - -
Mr. Rollings, pilot of the Corona, says: "I
was asl ep in the texas at the time of the
explosion." He does not know how the ex
plosion occurred. He was awakened by the
noise it made; be; was painfully burned on
both hands. r
Hon. L. F.Mason, secretary of state, a pas
senger, states that he was in the cabin talk
ing to Mr?. Robertson at ab ut ten o'clock
when ths the explos'on occurred. He es
caped with- life-preservers, and assisted in
siving Mrs. Robertson and another lady.
There was very little time for preparation
for escape, as what was left of the boat went
down like lead a few seconds after the explo
sion. As the steamer City of St. Louis came
down, she was hailed, and took on board all
the passengers and crew who were not lost
in th 3 river. No ono seems to be able to give
any explanation as to tbo cause of the sud
den disaster. . ;
Captain T. C. Sweeny , ne of tin owners of
the Itne, who assumed command on the death
of Captain Blanks, says, the explosion was
not due to a too high pressure OI steam. He
bad just had occasion to examine the cuage,
and is positive there was not a pressure of
more than 135 p unds. - The boat bad a mod
erate cargo. She was in midstream just be
low tbe landing at Arbrotb, and btd just
wristled to pass the City of Sr. Louis, fortu
nately coming down at the time. The explo
sion bad a downward tendency and blew out
the bottom df ths boat, causing her to sink
immediately. The cabin was torn in two, the
rear portion floating down stream and bear
ing a number of tbe saved. Captain Sweeny
happened to be forward and started at once
to put out tbe flames which began to Durn at
several places. He siys the boat would un
doubtedly have burned had she not gone down
immediately. None of the books, papers or
o:hr valuables were saved.
Tbe City of St Louis, which was about 500
yards atove, at once put out ber boats, and
their crew did noble work in saving lives.
The Anchor liner stayed there several hours
rendering all th? assistance possible, and
taking on board the rescued passengers and
crew. When nothing mora could be "done
she came to Baton Rouge, where physicians
were summoned and everything possible
done for, the injured. The only dead body
recovered was that of Fred Overman, the
second barkeeper. "
The steamer Corona, which exploded be.
boilers near Baton Rouee. killing about forty
people, was built in 1873, at a cost of about
thirty thousand dollars. She was jointly
ownel by Captain Campbell Sweeney, of
Wheel ins, and Captain Banks. Tbe boat was
one of tbe fleet of the Ouachita Transporta
tion Company, and ran from Baton Rouge
to Camden,. Ark. ..
JUTE BAGGING MONOPOLY,

Warren, Jones & Gratz, who are at tlie heal
of the jute bigging trust, and embraces the

Company of New York, incoporated under
the laws of that State, and which will&tind
as the single representative of what has been
assure or more of jute bagging companies.
All of these companies are to go ontof exis
tence, and their plants are to become tbe ac
tual property of the now organization, thus
changing from a truit or combine to tbe
mare complete form of monopoly a gigantic
stngto company, which witl own all the jute
bagging factories of the country, and which
wut have complete control of prices, and not
bV amendable to the anti-trust laws. - The
capital of tbee mnpanv is placed at 3,0JO,

will be elected this week, and tbe wonting
machinery ot Uie orgamaiuou be put in op eration
