We obtained from a person on board tbe South America, yea.erday morning, Albany r d Hudson papers, cot tuning some additional p^rv t! us con-1 cerning tnta dreadiul calamity. We were unable to obtain any verbal . orma tion except that seventeen bodies, in ail. bod been recovered. The Mrs. French, who was reported drowned in the Swallow, is alive, and now at her father's in this city. It will be seen that our fears of the loss of large number of lives?from forty to sixty?are but too well founded. The wreck had not beeu raised on Wednesday, so as to admit of a full examination of the cabin or other parts of it. [from the Hadson Gszetto? April 9?8 P. M.J Large Dumber* have visited tbe wreck to-day, all ap pearing anxious to get a view of the remain* ot the Ill fitted Swallow. The tide ha* been unu*u*lly low?lower than ha* been known lor a long time. Five more bod it a have been obtained, four from the wreck and one from the river, all female*. One of the bodie* recovered ha* been identified a* that of Mr*. Walker, from New York. Her huihand was on board at the time, and when the boat went down bad hold of hi* wile, but the currant was so strong a* to tear her from him?he, however, retaining a part of her dreaa in hi* grasp Another body hss been identified as that of Mr*. Coffin, en old lady, and mother of Oeorge M. Coffio, whose wile was found yesterday. Mrs. Coffin was sister of tho late Capt Reuben Moores, of this city. The bodies of the other three, we understand, have not been identified as yet. They were removed Irons the wreck to the hotel of Mr. Cobb, where the Coroner held eft inquest. It hss bsen ascertained that two of the bodies found yesterday, were those of two sisters, by the name of vVood, who reside in Albany. We understand that it was given in testimony before the Coroner's Jury yesterday, that the boat, at the time the struck,was only going at the rate of six mile* an hour. The pilot informed us to-day, that it was his intention to have stopped at Athens, and to have laid by until the squall had passed over. There hoe nothing new tronepired in regard to this sad catastrophe. We shall keep our readeri advised of every thing or importance that transpire* (From the Albany Evening Journal, April 9) There are many rumors afloat of individual* miming or loat, but we refrain from publishing them until confirmed. The Hope, which came up from Hudson this morning, brings no further particulars. The weather yesterday wa* so tempestuous as to prevent any measures being taken to raise the hull or get into the cabins, where, it is feared, many bodies remain. The boat is broken into ' three pieces: the forward part lying upon the Island, at an|angle of thirty-flve|degrees with the water, and the nii|?u?tt> Va imiist "v vv isu sue wnvii muu use bow some ten or fifteen feet above the rock. The Swal low mnat have been going at great speed at the time of the accident, to have run so far up on the rock. We are yet at a loss to conjeotnre how it was possible for an exper<enced|uilot, as Mr. Burnett, of the Swallow, is known to be, to nave run his vessel aground, in the Athens channel, with the Hudson and Atnens lights on either side, and the bold outline of Prospect Hill in front, to guide his course. There were six members of the Legislature on board the Swallow, viz :?Mr. Hard, of the Senate, and Messrs. Mather, Wycl<otf, Frisbee, Stevenson and Jarvis of the Assembly. When the boat struck, Mr. Hard was sitting in the ladies' eabin engaged in conversation. The crash <vas dreadful, and there was a general rush to the main, and thence to ihe upper deck, Mr. Hard, discovering that the how was fast, while the] stern of the boat was rapidly sinking, called upon all to go forward. Just at this moment the flames burst out from 'he wheel house and undoubtedly drove many hack who were making their way to the bow. Mr Hard per c ered, and by .the aid of a ladder, descended, With some sixty o'.-hers, from the bow 01 the boat upon the islam, on which she struck. He saw two ladies jump overboard, hut tho darkness was such that he could not help them, nertell what tecame ot them Several ladies were drawn out of the water upon the island while Mr. H. remained there. Wo learu from other sources, that the hall broke in two almost immedistely alter the baat struck, and the wa ter rushed into the cabins like a torrent. Many sprang overboard when the fire broke out, thinking that the only chance of escape lelt It is impossible yet to guess at the number of victims of this appalling catastrophe There is hut too much reason to tear that as maoy as thirty or forty person* have per.shed. The John Mason, which came up from the wreck last night, brought with her s>x dead bodie-, fivu feaudae and one male. The two Mrs;* Wood, sis tert oi Doctor Wood, of this city, were aming the num k?r; the other* were taken up to Troy, where it wa> tupposed that they belonged We grieve to learn that nueof the bodies turns out to be that ot Wi'lj -m Davis, son of Nathaniel Davis, of Ihi* city, a promLing young tueu sgd aoout 93, who was on his way to New York in company with hi* sister. He had succeeded in rescuing his sister from the threatened danger, and had plaeed her on board the Rochester, but returning to seek for Mrs. t'onokling, who is yet missing, lost his own life in the heroic effort to save other*. Most deeply do we sympa thize with his respected imher aud family in their al flic ting bereavement. When the vessel struck first time, one ol the colored waitars jumnedfoverboard, and swam about for some time, but at length returned to the boat, where bis first act was to take Irom his vest pocket three on* dollar bills sud dry them before the fire. Notwithstanding the danger all were in, this draw forth a smile from many who witneea fdit. Many intelligent passengera who have called up on us, are of opinion that it was impossible for the greet number of poaseugera to eaeape, from the ladiea cabin in particular : and that they believe that the loss of life will be eventually found to bo much greater than ia at praaant thought of. The foUewing if from ? put eager in the Swallow, on the night of the incident 1 *u one of the paiaeogerf in the Swallow on Monday evening, and never do I want to be the witness of another scene each ai occurred on board thii boat I bad Jn?t re tired to my atate room, alter taking tea in the lower cabin, when I felt the boatttrike with tremendone force egainet what I thought wee tome other boat. Immediately I hoard an uproar through the oabina, with oonftued orie* that we had struck ground and were sinking. 1 put on n>y cloak, and rushed out upon the guard up to my hipa in water. 1 was astounded and bewildered at the sight which presented itaelt to my view. Although the night was very dark, I could see a number of bodies in the river, some clinging to the guard of the boat, whioh was than last sinking under water. At this moment e fireman rush ed from the boiler room and gave the cry of "are." I t hen gave myself up to despair, and resolved to jump over board, and try to gain the shore. I proceeded to the top of the atate rooms, where one of the moat heart-rending scenes presented itself to my view that was ever witness ed. The belle of Hudson and Athens were sounding the alarm, and we could hear the shouta from voices on the shore but this only added te our agony, as we knew they could be of no service to ua at this awful momant. Al though the confusion at this moment wss great, I distinct ly recollect seeing several men throw themaelvea into the liver. 1 know not what became of them, but I suppose they iound a wateiy grave. A gentleman Just arrived from Athens informs us that among the persons lost is Mrs. Parker,of Utica. widow of the late Milton Parker. Her body haa not been found. Pasaeuoias Saved. The Expresi took on hoard 40 The Rochester. 94 Carried to Athens and Hudson 70 Total 304 It is now supposed that there were over five hundred on board. [From the Columbia Republican ] Exertions hove been made ell day to recover the bodlea of the drowned passengers, and the reeult has been the re covery of Ave more, all femelee, making in all eleven. Four were taken from the boot, end one from the river, a short distance from the wreck? With the exception ef the tetter, who eppenre to he about SO years, they appear to be all between 40 and M years of age. Two have been recognised by their friends: one a Mrs Coffin, ef West Troy, and the other Mrs. Walker of New Tork. On the iwraon ef one other of the ladies was iound a c^rdonfwhich wae written in pencil " Mrs. ?kid more," and in her pocket a baadkerohief marked with in delible ink,"H Conklio " The body is supposed to be that of Mrs. Conklin, ef Albany. We lenrn that in the pooketsol the young man recovered yeetrrday, there were found a handkerchief, marked "Sarah Bruudage," a large mil of bank Dill*, and memoranda for the purchase of hardware. It wet presumed that he was a weefern mrrchar.t proceeding to New York to purchase good*. On Mrs. Walker, viiois body was iound to-uey, there was a pocket hook containing a large sum of money. Her husband recognised her by a minature or himself, et tsohed to a gold chain, which she wore around her neck. Mr. Walker, we understand, i* a merchant of Now York, who haa been on a collecting tour in the western country lor some months paat. The scene before the ooroner's jury to-day was exceedingly affecting, especially when Mr. Walker gave hia testimony over the body of his lile !?*? wife. He said he could have saved her, and was org. ing her on toward tha forward part of the boat, when the captain came opto him and said, "be easy, there's no dan ger. He released hie hold of hi* wife's arm, and no sooner had he done thia than the water ruahed in, and the was swept beyond hie reach. . P1* ?f Osnernl Mather, who wae opposed to hsve been loet, i? ^efe. He floated on a plank, and was picked up a good ui.Unee from the wreck Kit>nappi?io?-On Wednesday, R beggar women named Isabella Hogan, was observed in the streets of Poiiadelpbla, having with her a boy about eeven years of age, ends very pret'y little girl about ;two years of age, which, from it* difierent appearance from the other child, excited the suspicion that ft had been stolen The woman was arrested and taken to the magistrate's office The bov wis taken uside, nnd stated that the bahy had baen stolen from the front of a house in Plum street while playing. An officer was sent to the neighborhood stated, where it wae aecertaioid that the little one Is a daughter of John Kelly, residing at 117 Plumb street. The woman had a hearing, which resulted in her bring committed as a vagrant Trial of Nlcbolao tf. Gordon tor tlie Murder ot Amu* Sprague. Tuesday Aktesnoon, March 8. GoTKKNMINT WITNESSES ? CONTINUED. Doctor Milleb sworn? (The testimony ofthie witness we* muchjthe same us that of Doctor Boweu.) He wu cat a 1 to examine Mr.Spraguu alter ho wu carriod home, tic louud a ball wound in the right arm, a wound on the lower part ol the chin, the (kin broken, and the jaw frac tured?another on the lett temple, and two on the right aide of the head. Cither of two or three of theae would have produced de.tl-; that near the right wriat muet have disabled the arm; he could conceive how all the wouadi about the head might be made with a gun. David Lawton?Went over the ground with eeveral othera on Tucaday neat after the murder wua committed; went to the swamp in searehof the traoka which had been traced there the day beiore from the driftway; while walking by the aide oi tkeawamp.saw something in the buahea, which proved to be a coat; 1 brought it out and gave it to Mr. Quinn, who atarted with it lor Mr. 8Prague's house; I went back into the swamp, but soon returned and followed the otbera to Spiogue's, the ooat had blood on the sleeve and on the skirts Crott-txamiiied?I waa walking by the aide of the swamp, eight or ten yarda behind the othera, when 1 saw the coat; it lay on the anow, and appeared to have been put there recently: there were tracks near where the coat lay, but 1 did not examine them; they appeared to come Irom the north (i.e. from the east side of Dyer's pond.) Gardner Luther?Turned up the snow where Ami sa dprague lay on Wednesday or Thursday, after the mur der ; there hod been a raiu the day before, and the snow was hard ; feund several pieoea of a gun-lock, the guard, a screw, lis., in the snow ; dou'l know whether Nicholas Gordon owned a gun; saw him have one on his shoulder about two week* before the murder ; did not examine it. Amos B. Sunh?Examined the pockets of Mr. Bprague alter he was brought home; found a package of bank notes in hie pocket, maiked on the envelope "$100;" there ware about $60 in the package ; the absence of the remainder was accounted fir by a memorandum on the envelope ; there was also some silver change in his pock ets ; I judged nothing in hii pockets had been disturbed. It being now six o'clock, and the Government not baviDg any othtr witnesses present whose testimony they w ished to introduce here, the Couit took a recess until 9 o'clock to-morrow morning. Wednesday Morning, April 9 Tho Court met at 9 o'clock, and proceeded with the examination of government witnesses Nathan Pratt?On the Tueaday morning after the murder, went to the swamp, in company with other*, in search of something thBt should lead to the discovery of the murderer ; lound a gun broken in three pieces, stand iug by tha side of a large tree near the east side of Dyer's pond; the gun was bloody, and had dark hair adhering to parta of it. Crete-examined?There were a great many tracks from tlieplaceof (he murder to the swamp, by tho tree where the gun was found,: some one pointed out to me, I think, | some tracks, which were said to be the ones traced the day before; I did not notice any tracks leading to or from the tree where the gun was lound. Direct resumed?The gun in Court is the gun I found ; it was coveted pretty much all over with blood. Habpin Briogs.?Saw prisoner have a gun four or five | hundred yards west of his house, late in the fall or early in the winter ot year before last. Did not take it in my hands. It was a full stocked gun, small bore, and old fashioned, but hwdjbt-en altered to a percusiion lock. The gun in court very nearly resembles the one I saw. Cross-examined ? I judge tkij to be tha same gun I saw prisoner have, from its general resemblance to it. Stephen Spraguk ?Went to place of murder on Mon day after It was committed. Traced blood on the snow by the fence on the Cranston side of the bridge. Found a rail down, two or three lengths of fence from tho bridge; and near it, on the snow, lound a small piece of a gun stock bloody, and with two or three black hairs on it; the sliver lay on the road side of the lence; the piece produced in court is the j iece I found Horatio N. Waterman ?Lived at Amasa Sprague's at time ot the murder; lived in another part of the same house; heard him apeak to nit wife, end go out of the house, about 3 o'clock, P. Ul. Went with John De Mer rfct and others on Tuesday, and truc.-U foot prints from near the place of the murder to Dyer's pond? from tha east side ol the pond to the tree where the gun was lound; | irom there to where the coat was found; and down to Hawkins' Hole. De Merritt measured the track the whole distance, and found it the same; it was deeper thun the othera, and the prints were further apart than a per son would make on a walk. We left Hawkins'Hole and went up into the road; De Merritt mw a track on the othtr sileot the road, leading towards Gordon's house, and fol lowed it: I kept to the right, and went up through tne t>. chard 1 saw the measure applied te the track swthiu twenty teet, and again within six ieet of the house. There were some posts near the baek side of the house, but no scantling on it. Crate-examined?I have not been into the field near G -rdon'a house since we exkmined the tracks ; there were p< sts there, but no scantlings. We measured the length oi the tracks with s stick, and their width with the same ahok ; 1 tried to measure the w:d'.h of the track nt too u.ttem, end found it to correspond with the mark made on i$e measuretmade by De Mtrritt There were tracks all round Gordon's house, and one track leading from the lv>use towsrds the swamp ; I only judge that the person ?rho made the tracks through the meadow and the swamp ? nt with more th,ii ordinary speed, from the fact that th*y were lar apart; there were other traoka leading !i on Dyer's bridge pointed out to ua by John O'Brien ; one was made by him on Sunday, and the other, he said by a man he saw there on that day ; the track* we mea sured, 1 should think, were made by No. ? or ? boots. John De Merbitt?Measured the tracks poictrd out by O'Brisn, near Dyer's bridge, on Tuesday afternoon ; we took the track a little south of Dyer's bridge, where O'Brien told utlfae aaw the m?n standing en Sunday, and followed it to the bridge ; a few rods beyond the bridge, *. a found the same track, or one corresponding to it, and followed it to the north of the hay stacks, by two ledges of took, one called the Cavern rock, until it waa lost in the drift-way between the place where the body was found lud the Carpenter house; the same track we found on tha Cranston aide of the atring bridge, and traced aa de scribed by Waterman, to Gordon's house ; measured the track within a short distance of Gordon's hcuse, and noticed it close to the doer, within Id or 30 inches ; there were other tracks about the house, and one leading to wards Hawkin's Hcla ; saw a pair ofboota, aaid to belong to John Gordon, ou Wednesday after the murder ; applied t:te mcasnre to the boot ; it was tha asms length, but the measure ot the track made it an eighth of an inch wider than the boot Crote examined?The track I mesanred sremed older than the others near it; I de not know that I could have distinguished on Tuesday afternoon a track made on Sun day at o'clock, P. M. Irons one made on Monday morn ing at 9 o'clock; I have no doubt the traoks on the John iton side, near Dyer'a bridge and the Cavern rock, were tho tame I traced from ths place of the murder to Haw kio's Hole and Gordon's house. To a Juroa?I measured the track leading from Gor don's house ; it was the same as the one leading towsrds the house ; noticed no difference in their appearance ; I tillowed the track leading from the house only a short distance. To Ma Rodger*?I bad tha imprrssien the same per son made this as the other track ; think 1 mentioned this opinion to some one?don't recollect who ; dont know why I did not follow this track further, unless it was be cause 1 was tired at the time. Tha counsel for the government hare introduced the record of the court ot the conviction of John Gordon, and it pnsaad to the jury as evidence ol his guilt. Stsfhen Matthewson sworn?Found a pistol lying in the anew near the north east corner of the bridge where the murder was committed, before the body was removed on Sunday evening; examined it and threw it down again; the Coroner a'terwards picked it up; it was hea vily loaded, aad had been snapped. Theodore Quinn-Was near by when the coat was found,on Tuesday after tha murder; held It while the content* of tho pocket were examined, and then handed it to Alexander Boyd; the coat now in court la the one I ?aw and held. Alexander Boy??Mr. Quinn handed the ooat te me; there was blood upon the breast of it, and paper and pew der in the pockets; I carried it to Mr. Bprague's house; I think this is the coat.

Drown son a Jesuit -The IVcuther?Mademoiselle Fanny, fc., 4*f. see that the Herald goes it strong for baptising our nameless country with the title of Alleghania as suggested by the. Historical Society of New York. The Alleghanies are the principal moun tains within the civilized portion oi <>ur Union, and like a glorious belt, they knit thedifferent sections of the Union together. It is, therefore, according to the eternal fitness of things, that the name of the Union should be emblematic of the idea which is thus conveyed by the Alleghany chain. There is also another convenience in adopting this change in preference to any other, viz: that the present in itials on Uncle Sam's cartridge-boxes, public scales, &c , " U. S. A." will not have, to be changed, for U S. A. stand as twell for United States of Alle ghania, us for anything else. I therefore go the same. and bid God-speed to the enterprize ot the Herald in baptising the country thus. The press must do the thing, and who better fitted to take the lead therein than the paper which has the greatest and most diffused circulation of any one in the whole United States of Alleghania 1 The speculation in sugar is going ahead here,as in your city, but it is a groundless rise, the price that now rages The fact is, the short crop in Cuba, upon which the whole affair is based, is but a drop in the bucket. Say we shall get but halt a crop thence, bb is supposed will be the case, this will afford us? Prom Cuba 41,000,000 lbs. From the Danish IVest Indies we have. ... 6,000 000 " Dutch do do 3,000,000 " Manilla 8,000,000 " Porto Rico and other Spanish ports 60,000,000 " Brazils 7,000,000 " Giving a total of 136,000.000 " Which is double the amount actually needed tor nse during the current year, and sugar is an article that may fairly be setdown among the perishables, that is to say, it is not a fit article to keep from year to year. In consideration of these facts, look out for a tall about these days, it was all brought) about by a few rich Boston and New York mer chants, who have monopolised the supply in the market, but they have looked out sharp not to burn their own fingers by holding on too long. The stock is all in the market again, after being the means of making a fortune for some of the lucky ones who had a quantity on hand, Speaking of speculations?the money makers are ail alive just now with a famous "fancy stock" of a copper company, the mines being located some where in Wisconsin Territory. The getters up of the business are old stagers in humbug specula tions, at the bottom of it is said to be David Hen shaw, formerly of the Commercial Bank of this city. The par value of the shares is fifteen dollars, but the lack of possessors ofthem are fully persuad ed that they are worth a thousand, and by dint of | tfie utmost urging can be coaxed to part with a few to a particular friend, at three hundred and fifty.? | The game is for one of the kuowing ones to boast that he has so many shares,and considers them the best investment he ever had ; is fact worth untold money, and he will not sell at any price. But Mr. so-and-so has some, and does not think quite bo j well of them; he is selling some at $360. The green 'una swallow this, and cut off to Mr. so-and so, post haste, where they buy some of the very I shares belonging to this bragger who would not sell | at any price. So you see people are as big fools row as ever, and just as ready to take stock in the Uunar Green Cheese Company. It were fun, did I not pity the poor fellows for the losses they will ] have to suffer, to see them bite at this bated gud-1 aeon-hook of copper. If thev werenot dabbling in this speculation, they would be in some o'her just 4 wild, therefore it matters but little how much thej get caught. Have you had any "copper stock' in New York Yet I The Great Hotel scheme, which I mentioned to you some time ago, is suspended lor the present, i in consequence ot the advanced price of labor and I materials. The projectors are shrewd men, who ihut the precent impulse to raise prices must Bwon cease, and be followed by a corresponding ] 4a.ll, and. therefore, they will lay low for the pre sent, ana when the change takes place, bring their peavy capital into the market and command their I c vn terms. They did think of calling this great house the Columbian Hotel, but ere it is built, they will be constrained, 1 think, by the torce of bircuinstances then existing, to call it the Allegha nia Hotel. Mr. Fairchild's friends are getting up a consider able sum ot money to pay him for what he has tmffered by the recent trial, and they find folks beady to give their last penny almost, to this pious use.

His uxorial relations will prevent his | ; becoming a Cardinal of the Sacred College, but the isehool of the Jesuits is open to him, and by the way, he has most wonderful talents for tsking a leading part in that all-powerful and mysterious sect. If he is not already, he will soon be made a [ Jesuit of the short robe, and will exercise a mostj important influence inlihe system of propaganism, which is imputed to the Romish Church in Alle ghania.
