INT Of HAVKU, AI LI .KB a.vij wounuko. rKrom tho Ciociuuaii April 27 ) On Monday evening, fcid loot , to o'clock, th* Belle of the West left the port of Cincinnati, hound for St Louis, with about two hundred and fifty or more pusaengeM, including deck and cabin, all told, with ? crew of forty in number. No freight w*? t. ken out of the hold nfter the (ro.it left tftio po:t, and nothing done, arid the h itched not raised, except the usual examination of the watchm in,'previous to the dtecoverv of the smoke. Wh-n opposite Florence, la., I discovered smoke i-tsnug thtnugh the joints of the forward hitch, which gave me some uneasiness, when I called one of the deck hands, who was standing near, to raiae the h tell to see it the Cau.se was below; the appearut.ee of more smoke proved my suspicions to he coriect, and I immediately ran to the hurricane deck slid ordered the pilot to land the ho.it, that lLer> was lire in the hold. Next, return ?d to sat 1 hutch and found that two men had gone down with hose I ordered them to go aft midget all p issengcra on deck forward, while 1 went through the I- hin, assisted hy the second clerk and steward, to w: ke up the pas.-engers, which I did with all the sliced possible, and exhorting thein to prad.-ncs? ih..t thehout whs on fire in the hold. "Sive your lives end leave baggage?the boat is landing, and all may escape it von will act prudentlyThe awful scene that followed after the alarm, vou c in letter imagine that 1 can describe, Iront the lime 1 first discovered the smoke until th>- boat I and**!, which 1 do not think was outside of five minutes. I In d under my protection a lady, the wife of Vlaj. \ inccitl Fhitips, ol Iiollidayshurgh, Pa , whom 1 h it very anxious about, as she was in the room on tin' extreme euti oi tin* 1 idtes cahin, aniline only holy unprotected on board, to my knowledge. I winked niy way through to the rootn, and pidtd the door open, found her getting up, having heard the a la l m, hilt w an dressed only in part. 1 told her to come quick?the boat was on tire. She handed nte a portion of her clothes and turned to get her trunk. I told her to let the trunk rem .in?she n ight lose her life, as both could not he saved. M ny had gone ahead of us; b it I succeeded in Hettinp her out on shore, wh"n she requested nie to 1 leave her, and return to the assistance of others? that she could get up the hill without assistance, as i it was not steep. Up to this time the fire hud not | reached the cabin Hoor. On my return 1 metminr i who were trying to save haffg i?.-, and many elnld' rt n weie pushed and crowd d off the g-m iy in* to the water. 1 then ran in and pulled th-m out, cte after another, and passed them to the shore, and 1 then cleared the gangway of trunks and la xrs, lor the passengers to make their escape. At iIns instant 1 discovered a keg of powder, which 1 i tin rid up and halloed ' powder," at the sumn time holding it up, that all who might i*-e it would understand my meaning, if they eould not he.tr me To esc. pe from the effects of au explosion myself was impossible, should any more he left in the hold. After making the exhibition, 1 weutinto ibe liver with the keg,in order to get it entirely out of if;,ch of lire, but unfortunately the current w,m cam mp it it wards the lire ug on. I then r.ui in ml pot it out, at which time ihe mat': came and took it front nie, and carried it below the boat. Samuel Masters, the cur muter, used every effort to pet in the hold to s utile the bo ,t; but on raising the hatch, so dense w?.s the smoke and heat that it w s iiD|K,ssible. In trying to replace it, a fireinin, v>lio was assisting him, fell down through, but wis rcccvered by the e..rp< tiler, who caught linn by the hct I.- us he fell This mi.-fortune c tused the fire to !! I loo strong for them to replace the hatch. He (the carpenter) tells me he di I not leave there nntil he lied examined the beds of the d'-ck passeug -rs ; supposing, through f ight, home might hive left then children, but found none; and the next thing for linn Whs to get ashore, which he did by get jag to the hurricane deck and coining down the derrick and spar, losing tools, Iwggige, and all ? After all was saved that could be enved, we then pioceeded to assist in making the pmsongerg as c< nifortablc as circumstances would admit. I hid files built along the shore, the houses being occupied by the wounded. 1 cannot close without expressing a deep sense of gratitude tow.ir l-t my officers ; nil ciew, who, to a ni in, stood to his pent from beginning to end. Nearly all of the above statements tell under inv observation, and are enricct. One question i* frequently asked, and th it i.-, hrw is it that all the officers and cr-*w were K.'.xed? w hich is easily answered.
