Additional Details of the Nora , Scotia Calamity. Frequent and Terrific ‘Explosions on ; Tuesday and Wednesday. Stones and Debris Thrown One Eun- Eundred Feet Into the Air. The Number Killed Now Esti ; mated at Seventy-five. Saddening Scones in tlic Vicinity of the Mine, Special Dispatch to TH Chicago Tribune. Halifax, May 14.—The ‘ mine at Westvllle is still burning fearfully. Volumes of dense smoko and flames are Issuing from the elopes and shafts.- No hopes arc entertained of saving any more lives, Thoro is a scarcity of water In tbo neighborhood, but every effort is being mado by mon from tho Drummond Colliery, and volun teers from all other mines to dam up every avail able stream of water, from which trenches aro being dug loading to tho slopes and shafts, with tho intention of lotting tho water into the mlno. Managers of the neighboring .mines aro on tho ground, and, with their mon, aro doing all that men eon do. Tho flro company near Now Glas -Bow with thoir engine aro at work trying to save 10 buildings on tho surface, which are now throated by flames from tho slopes. . ' At this writing tho flro is still ragingmoro fear fully than ever, and tho air is fiilodwith donso black smoko. It la a fearful calamity. Tho exact number of persons lost is not yot known. Tho econo at tho mlno is heartrending, with re lations mourning for those lost. Tbo canao of tho flro was on explosion of gas from a blast fired by coal-cutters in ono of the boards. Tho flro communicated with tho gas in other parts of the mlno: oud immediately caused the first fearful explosion', which out off all escape from the workmen. Tho men had only resumed work after a strike. Halifax, N. 8., May 14.—Tho fire at tho Drummond colliery continues, but is slowly abating. All tho openings aro being filled up, and a stream of water has been turned into an air sba'ft lately worked. Tho list of killed, as far as known, comprises twenty-six mon leaving wives and familols, and twenty-two single mon. Tho total number killed will probably roach seventy-five. Tho wounded number six, of whom two aro fatally injured. Tho men who havo escaped with great diffi culty from the slope report that on their way up they passed bodies of their comrades, who had probably become stupefied by smoko since tho explosion. Of tho four mon wbo volunteered to go down tho shaft shortly before tho ecoond explosion, throo wore killed. Several violent explosions took placo last night. One was perceptibly felt four miloa dis tant. Tho inquest waa commenced yesterday, and adjourned until this evening, ' Wmttille, Plctou Co,, N..8„- May 14.—From 10 o’clock lost night until -daylight this morning tho firo at the Drummond coluory ragod with intense fury, gathoriug volume aud violence oaohmoment. The sky lathe vicinity of tho calamity woe illuminated with flames issuing from the air-shaft to tho height of nearly ono hundred foot. All through tho night thoro woro explosions at intervals. Those wero pre coded by a rumbling noise resembling thunder. Tho weary watchers who remained around the pit’s mouth and air-shaft, and labored to subdue tho flames woro obliged to sock shelter in tho adjoining wood, os tho stono, debris, etc., wore thrown from tho pit’s mouth at each explosion wore being scattered around in all directions, and threatened instant destruction or injury to every ono within reach. About 2 o’clock this afternoon, those explosions woro followed by one which, for torrifio violence and destruc tive force, dwarfed all tho rest. Ail the ' wooden works in and around tho mala slope woro (instantly destroyed. Stones, wood, and burning embers wore driven higa into tho air, smoko, flame, and terrible noises accompanying tho explosion, Sthe beholder a vivid idea of a volcanic do. The earth for miles around was shaken with tho violence of tho explosion. Laborers aro now engaged in filling up tho shafts with clay, and hopes aro entertained that thq worst daugor is over, unless another ex plosion takes plado. Tho scenes ia and around tho villages are saddening. Wostvillo and the villages at tho Drummond colliery aro in mourning. Tho shops are closed, and mon and women wander about in groups, their saddened countenances betokening tho tho groat grief that has befallen them. No pen can correctly picture tho harrowing scenes of yester day, when tho torriblo truth waa convoyed to tho mourning wives, Bisters, and frieiida of those who woro suddenly hurled into eter nity. The utmost excitement pre vailed, and for hours it was impossible to ascertain who were or who woro not in tho mine. Women, many of whom bad husbands, brothers, and sons working in tho colliery, mado tho air dismal with thoir crying. One ofthe rescuing party, killed by tho explosion yesterday, was driven into tho air a distance of a hundred feet, and foil into tho wood near by, where his dead body was picked up this morning. About forty-five of tho mon lost woro married, all of whom leave families to mourn their sod fate. Nearly every family here lost some rela tion or friend by tuts torriblo calamity. There aro many reasons to account for tho dis aster, hut the diroot canse ia attributable to the stoppage of work at 'the mines and rapid ac cumulation of gas. Whether 'proper caro and precaution were exercised, during tho stoppage, in looking after tho mino, aro foots which will be determined upon official inquiry. At 4:30 p. m. there was no change in the con dition of tho fire. Tho flames are Btillissuing from tho shaft, and tho opinion prevails that thoro will bo more heavy explosions. Later—Apprehensions of another explosion have subsided. The Coroner’s inquest has been adjourned un til! to-morrow forenoon. Testimony was elicited this afternoon, which points' to some mismanagement in permitting tho miners to use powder for blasting in tbo upper . level where the ilro first broko out, thus endangering the Uvea of those who woro at work in tho lovols below. Tho Inspector of Hines, however, who attended the inquest, thinks the direct cause was in not exercising proper precautions in firing shots in tho bench. Tho first two were merely blown out, causing fissures in tho body of tho coal, whoro the gas accumulated. When the third shot was fired, the coal ignited and all attempts then to quench tho flames were unavailing. The number known to bavo been killed now reaches fifty-nine. Uallroad Nows* Augusta. Ga., May 14.—A convention was held hero to-day in tho interest of a railroad from Chicago to the Atlantic, via Augusta, as an air-lino road. Tho Augusta Exchange held a meeting, and adopted resolutions to the effect that tho construction of a grand trunk lino rail way from Chicago via Knoxville, Tenn., to Au gusta, Ga., was an absolute necessity required y the incro&so of freight and travel between

Davis assumed command of the Modoc expedi tion in person, ton daye ago, only one conflict, that of Saturday, has occurred!, though tho move ment of which this last affair was a feature is still progressing, and several bodies of troops aro now hunting an ongagomout. Gon. Davis found tho soldiers disheartened by tho disasters of tho campaign, aud had to resort to many devices to arouao their lagging enthusiasm and increase their efficiency. He began his work with a will and earnestness that won for him tho sympathy aud friendship of tho officers and privates, inspiring them with confi dence. Ho studied tho situation carefully, util ized tho experience of bis predecessors, and gavo tho wearied soldiers time to recuperate from tho fatiguo and mental excitement inciden tal to tho rough fights in tho lava-bods. Ho sent out scouting parties, had tho men disciplined in Indian dodges, and now has his first grand movement for operations. It is his intention to harass the Modocs, keep thorn stirring from Slace to place, and aubduo them. Tho men say ley fool that ho moaus business. Lava Beds, May 10—11 p. m.—Lieut. Bacon, of Troop K, First Cavalry, wbo has arrived in camp with a detachment, having boon on es cort duty between hero and Oapt, Jack’s old stronghold, brings a report from liout. Chapin, commanding tho latter camp, that his pickets heard firing in tho direction taken by Col. Mason’s command in tho present scout after tho Indiana. It is generally supposed an engage ment has occurred, ° b Camp Booth of Tule Lake, Lava Beds, May 18—C a. m.—Part of tho mon of thin camp, if not tho entire force, will ho moved to Boylo Camp, on tho peninsula of Tulo Lako, within tho next two wooks. This camping-ground Is very un healthy in summer. Already the rattlesnakes and scorpions aro familiar with tho interior of tho tents, and making unsocial visits during the nights. Nows will probably bo received from Col. Mason’s force to-day. Every one la anxious to hoar the'result of tho present scout. San Francisco, May 14.—A dispatch from Yroka, to-night, says tho Modoca have another rooky fortress, which they aro making still stronger. Tho troops will not attack before re inforcements arrive. Tho position Is about 20 miles south of tho last stronghold. C. Burgess had seen Bogus Charley on tho Upper Klamath. Ho has not yot been captured. XXo said ho know nothing about tho contemplated massacre of tho Commissioners; that there wore thirty Modocs loft, who would fight till the last man was killed. LATER. Bevonty-flvo mon will bo retained in camp to guard tho stores till reinforcements come. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, May 14.—Tho Commissioner of Indian Affairs regards tho occasional predictions of a general Indian war as wholly unworrautod, for tho reason that tho Indiaua aro not united, as aro civilized communities, but ore divided in to small bands, each of which ia an independent organization, haviug no rotations whatever with othor tribes. In fact, oven when not at war with each othor, thoy aro seldom on friendly terms. Their sympathy is limited to tho mombors of thoir tribe, and therefore tho Commissioner believes that tho hostility of tho Modocs will havo no effect whatever on other tribes, excepting, possibly, tho Snako Indians, with whom tho Modoca have somewhat affiliated in tho past. Tho fact that tho Warm Spring In dians aro tho allies of our troops in tho war against tho Modoca ia one illustration of the indifference of tho Indiana to tho trials and tribulations of a neighboring tribe.

Progress of (he Russian Campaign in Khiva. Account of the Recent Carlist 1 Victory in Navarre. SPAIN, Herald Special. London, May 14.—The battle at Puolto do Eraui, near Stella, In Navarro, May 6, was tho most important light, and was a complete victory for Dorrogaray. Four days previously tho Oarllst troops wore surprised at Pina Oorrada by a Gov ernment column and retreated with the greatest procopltatlon -towards tho moun tains. Other Government forces co-operat ing; Joined in pursuit. Thus five columns, encouraged by ' the Oarllst flight, • pursued them with . such 'energy that Dorrogaray during sixty hours could glvo hla oommand but tvrolVo hours rest. On tbo fourth day tho Ca leb s troops' wore completely broken : down, but tho Government troops wore loft far behind, excepting one column under 001. Novarra, com posed of regular troops with a battery, .of ar tillery. Dorrogaray contrived to turn suddenly; probably to deliver a blow to cripple this force. Ho' consequently formed a lino of battlo at Puonta Erault, on rango of low hills, partly, covered with scrub oaks and ohapparal. Ho had about 8,000 men in position. His cen tre. was commanded by Lizairaga, : tbo loft by Elio, and right by Dorrogaray. Tho Government troops, on coming up, occu pied high ground, which gave their artillery command or the Carllst position and tho swoop of ground between. Tho Carlisle had. no artil lery. Tho skirmishers .of tho Government troops felt tho Carllst lines for some hours. At 8 o’clock in the afternoon tho Government troops ad vanced, handsomely supported by a fire from their battery, which, although not very destruc tive, made tho Carlisle, whohavean exaggerated respect for cannon, very uneasy, oven while do ing little harm. When tho Government ad vance first came within range, Lizarraga’s men opened from the ohapparal bushes an exceedingly destructive fire, which staggered the line and broke tbo advance force, and compelled them to relinquish part of tho ground already gained; but tho troops preserved perfect order, and tho skirmish lino kept tho follows in tbo ohapparal busy. When tho battle was raging at this point, Elio, who overlapped ’ the Government right, mode bis way through tho ohapparal, thus get ting well on tho fiank of tho forces. In tne front Lizarraga peppered away to some pur pose, keeping Ills men mostly un der cover. Tho fight continued on thoso terms, tho dxchango of muskotry fire for tho playing of tho Government battery, for nearly an hour, both sides having quite a number of men wounded. Meanwhile, Dorro garay was preparing for an effective stroke. His ody of chosen cavalry, composed ontiroly of young gontlemon of Catholic families, mostly oadots of tbo Basque nobility, commanded by tbo Marquis Valdospina, wore put hi position. There was some trouble in getting the force In position to charge the battery. Finally, at 4 o'clock, tho cavalry was ready. 001. Rodas’ battalion was also prepared to advance with tho bayonet against tbo Government left tho same battalion that charged so splendidly at tho battlo near Vich. Tbo signal was given for a simultaneous obargo and advance along tho wholo line, which in a tromonduous lioltor-skoUor obargo of cavalry ou tho most dif ficult ground, and an obstinate but short hand to-hand combat between Eoda’s men and tbo Government troops. Tho latter broke and fled in complete rout in ovory direction, to tho moun tains and valleys, to got away from the cavalry. Valdospina baa a bayonot thrust in his arm. A number of tbo cavalry wore killed, and two Captains wore wounded. Tbo cavalrycapturcd one cannon, carriage, and cais son.

Tho Secre tary promptly replied, directing tho Consul to afford the requisite assistance, and to draw on him for money. Tho United States steamer Frolic will leave Now York to-morrow for St. Johns, but, owing to heavy ice in that harbor, may not bo able to got the crew of tho Polaris on board as soon as desired. Special Diepatch to The Chicago Tribune, Washington. May 14. —The opinion expressed in certain quarters, that the steamer Polaris was not seaworthy, especially not adapted for service in the Arctic seas, Is flatly contradicted at the Navy Department. She wan ilttod up at the Navy Yard boro, under the special supervision of the Ohief of tuo Bureau of Construction, and the Secretary of the Navy gavo orders that noth ing should ho loft undone to make her in every way capable for her voyage. There is considerable mystery about the man ner in which the Polaris parted with that part of her crow that has arrived at St. Johns, and the Secrotanr of the Navy is anxious to loam the true story. For this purpose ho has requested the survivors to report to him in person Loro. It is possible that some now facts will bo elicited. It ta not boliovod here that the story already pub lished is the correct one. LOUISIANA. Taxoßcsislors Arrested *■ Kellogg Again Interviewed. New Orleans, May 14. —The Metropolitans returned from St. Martinsville, Now Iberia. The following were arrested by tbo United States Marshal on affidavit of V. Martino!, colored, charging thorn with intimidating certain citizens of African decent, and on other charges which are left blank: Col. Alcibiadoa Do Blanc, Gen. Alexander Deolouot, Gabriel Fournot, Hursvillo Fournet, Zachary Fournot, Paul Fournot, Paul Dcclonet, Laasolluo Bryant. Allred Piacliloi, and Eugoua Dmlxuiid. They leave to-morrow (Thursday) with the United States Deputy Marshal, all in escort of United States troops, and will arrive in Now Or leans on Friday evening, and appear before the United States Commissioner on Saturday. It is reported that United States troops now in St. Martinsville will remain there several months. The Now Orleans’ J’icayune interview with Kellogg closes as follows: Reporter—Do you believe the Republican par ty represents a majority of the voters of this State ? Kellogg—Unquestionably. Indeed I am fully convinced they possess at least 20,000 majority, if permitted to enjoy an honest expression of their views through the ballot. Reporter—Why do you deny it to the people, and would you aud your Associates favor, under any circumstances, a now election. Kellogg— When the contest was being prose cuted last winter several members of the Fusion Legislature having ascertained that no objec tion would be interposed by mo to a now elec tion. conducted under such authority as would Insure its fairness, desired me to re fuse my assent to it. They wore opposed to a now election then, because I suppose they thought Ur. MoEnory would be recognized as Governor ; and that they would thus gain con trol of the State. If ray personal feelings only worooousultod, I do not desire to ho Governor of Louisans; but, believing that 1 was legally elected, it is my duty to continue to oxoroise the functions of Ohlof Magistrate of the State until the party that elected mo shall decide or Congress determine to havo a now election. In such an ovout their decision will bo promptly accepted and cheerfully acquiesced in by mo. In expressing this opinion I can, of course, give only my own views, and not those of my associates.
