Lkt ef the Ulti Mi Wouded. Statement of One of the Passengers. tie C0i?iii>f iiqmif, Testimony-- Thrilling Incidents, fta, , fta, Ma. The accident on the Hudson River Railroad, MW Poughkeepsie, although attended with the Ipsa of three live*, has not been so disastrous aa was at first supposed. .All of the wounded, numbering twenty-two, it i? expect ed, will recover, and not more than five or six have been seriously injured. J- rem the statement of persons who wi-re on the train when the oata strophe ooc arret, we earn the following additional particulars i The tra'n which left Albany on Wednesday night, and which did not reach Ponghkeepsie till half-past two the following morning, was detalneTaEont two miles south ?of that town, at a place called Montgomery Core, by a rlight defect which had been discovered on the track. The locomotive of the Ponghkeepsie train, which was goiig at lull upeed, ran into the last car of the Albany train, completely demolishing it, and strewing the road with the fragments. There were about fifty passengers in it, three of whom were almost Immediately killed, and twrnty-two, as we have stated, wounded. The spectaole presented wa most painful. Two of the dead bodies were mutilated in a horrible manner, and the snow for some disUcce along the track was stained with blood. The gieatest excitement prevailed among the passengers, and the scene wan rendered still more painful by the cries and moans of the wounded. The engine, alter pasting through the Inst car of the Albany train, ran partly into the next one, and then foil down an em bankment, dragging wUa it in its deseent part of the ruiaa. The engineer, when asked why he did not send a signal back, said that be had done so, and we hare been infoimed that he took every precaution to prevent the colHbion. It appears, however, that the man whom he ?<rnt to warn the approaching train of the danger did uut reach a curve in the road in time to make the signal, and that the locomotive was upon them before the engi neer could stop it. The curve was about two hundred yards from the point where the defect had been discover ed in the road. When it was known that the Pough kiep^ie train was coming, the Albany train was started, and every effort made to escape, but nothing eould avert the danger, and in a few moments after it was put in mo , tioa *be collision took plaee. The engineer on the Pough keepsie tiain reversed the engine, and when it fell down the bank he fell with it, but escapod with a few slight in juries. , It was about an hour before the wounded oould be re moved, as there were no means of conveyanoe near at band. As soon, however, as news of the catastrophe reached Poughkeepsie, a train was despatched from that place; but a few minutes before it arrived at the soene of the accident the up train from New York had arrive 1 a >id taken them on board. On the arrival ef the wounded at Poughkeepsie, every attention was paid to them br the President of the road, Mr. Sloan, and the Superinten dent. The depot was converted into a temporary hospital, and every provision made for their eomfort. In the morn (ng, those who were most seriously wounded and unable In consequence to return to their homes, wera^oonveyed to hn lutah and medlael attention procured fer them from .Poaghkespele, New Tork and Albany. All who were able to do so left yesterday morning, leaving about seve i or eight still remaining at Poughkeepsie. lhe following is a statement of Mr. Isaac D. Gott, o ' this city, ono of the passengers:? Was one of the passengers on the train from Albany; nothing of interest took place on the way down, until we rnoehed Poughkeepsie; the passengers au seemed in goon spirits, and little thought of the sad catastrophe that awaited them; on the arrival of the train at I'oughkeep etc tbev waited feme fifteen minutes before they started . it was "about two o'clock when the train started; we were not going at the usual speed, but seemed to go by jerlu; two gentlemen who sat on the seat in front of me were conversing in regard to a train which was expected ?h?rtly after ours, and they seamed to (ear that she ought run into us; I asked them what train it was, and they informed me it vas expected to be the two o'clock war train, from Poughkeepsie. While talking with them, and they had barely replied to my question, when we lelt a sudden jerk, and a loud noise, and on looking lithiud mo, 1 saw the last car which was next to ours, fly ing in every dlreotion. Before I had time to turn my head fund, our car seemed open, and the next moment I found myself tumbled down to the side embankment into the river. 1 had no more than reached the ice ?.hen I felt a tremendous blow upon my head, which I aineovered wa? the stove. Fortunately I sustained no serious damage trom it, with the exception of two or ttwee hard bumps upon my head, and the destruction of my hat . One of the beams of the car fell across my legs, bit I s^on succeeded in extricating myself. As soon as I go* upon my feet, a horrible sight pre rented itself. One ul the engine- which was attached to the rear train lay d'.wn the embankment, and directly in front ot me lay the mangled bodies of a man and woman. I went towards tbem. hut I.'ndinc: the engine puffing with steam, I was <*fra'd that her hoiter would burst. Tne bodies seenyd to be literally torn into pieces; the left leg of the man lay shout ten feet from the body, with a boot upon it, but no part of the pantaloons; his face was horribly mutilated, and his clotting was all in pieces. The lady, who s-erned be quite young, lay near the body of the man; she was aMo mutilated in a horrible manner; she was very well oressed; there was a gaiter upon ono of her feet; ker loot was quite small; a gold ohain was hanging around i her neck. The passengers seemed all excite ment; some were hallooing and crying, and the woundod lay in every direction, mourning, as if in great agony. .Hist as I turned from the hoi rible scene in front of the engine, I saw the conductor of the train out on the i'to ?-oine distance off, but immediately oppo site lhe train. He was coming towards me. As he netted me 1 said to him that he oupphl '.o i>e hung, when he replied, In great excite nwnt, " Jiy (iod, I sent a sig nal back to stop the train." The enpine tha' struck the -oar car passed through, and then ran off the track d^wn the embankment. I was in the third passenger <?r, and next to the last cue. When I first got upon the truck I saw the engine which woo attached to our train abont a quarter of a mile ahead Of us, with only the ten ter attached to us. There i< no iloubt bat thftt on see ing the train coming down behind them that they di engaged themselves from the trsin so as to he clear of the collision. Had they immediately started of iu full force on discovering the train behind, there is n i'oubt but the collision could have been avoided; did istt hear any si^i a' before the colli- Ion took place; wo led been started about a second when wc fir.-t felt the shoe:*; there were some fifteen or twenty who were in some way injured ; tbev were all cut and bruised, and nu.ny could he scon with their fares covered with blood, '?"her" was about forty pornons in the car that I was in, ?*nong whoni wa-> about fifteen ladies. One woman was so black in the fac< that her husband could not recognize her, and it wa not until she had eome to, and she had veil hernauie, that ho discovered her, notwitandlng he find passed her several times. About an hour after the accident a train came up, and the dying and wounded were conveyed to I'oughkeepsiu and medical attention immediately procured. At nine o'clock some one hundred of the paasengers took the night train and arrived in (he city at eleven ?icleok. Tbe particulars of tho sail calamity, which are fully explained in the testimony adduced before the Coroner' >i jtiry, etupajuidkd to examine into tho circumstances, nay be briefljKmmmed up as follows: ? The Albany ex press train, whloli ttarted at cloven o'clock from that ?ity, arrival at I'oughkeopsle at 2.60 P. M., and started foes the station at that place at 2.5.1. She proceeded ?? hsr trip until pa: nlng through a cutting in a rock ?t Mines' Point, and when at Montgomery Cove she was signalled to stop, and did so, l?ecause of a break of a raii near Milton Ferry. Interesting Meantime the train (wftyacoom/nodallon, which should hi' rt froia T'oughkee pule at li . 4T? 1 had been de tained. aot wturtini' till ;;.l 1'. M., or eight minutes after the leaving of the express. The cjnductor of the for ?watil car romeinherod his danger at once, and on utop ;!iirr hi* train be ran back with a red flag and dispatched tl. jito'11 to warn of the coming train; bat to no pur pi'tv, for wilhiu a few momenta she was upon her, and tli? coOInion took placo. MKASURKH TO ATOT]>. Snt only did the conductor of the forward car endeavor t* w?n off the coming train, but, Hoping tlio imminent c'wu ? In which he was plaead, he ordered hi* trais to h ibtrU*] pi?fKnmg the leaner of two evils, with a ?.'rtnr* ol e e.'i|-e Unfortunately, the coupling of the ^?!ur itd t?f ,:i ;> r.ir gave way, and th? engine moved Kd, leaving Ui. ?u* behind. THIS BCFWF. No farther time was allowed for the prevention or a eWi'/D, ml ',Ue -joaduotor ^grdingl/ wtliied hU j?? congers of the peril in which they stood, recumueadio^ a "Imp for lift." Many parties, at the peril of their link*, did m jump; they in the most generally injured by bruises and out*. The seoond pair of engine* came rushing on, passing entirely through the hind oar of the forward train, smashing it to the right and left, crushing the next, and gutting a third ear. Ihe first engine of the hindmost ear was al most demolished, the second engine of the same train beliqt also considerably injured. The dying, dead and wounded were scattered all round; one body, that of Mrs. Charles H. Greene, of Utlca, was dreadfully mangled, lying on the boiler of the locomotive; the atomic remnants of the body of an unknown man were scattered in all directions; the bleeding were on the Ice and in the water, on the track under the cars, everywhere where forcible and sudden blows could have distributed them. * These who bad escaped free from Injuries, or whose wounds were of a lighter grade, at onoeset to work in the good deeds of rescue, and soon the sufferers were conveyed to the various oars and returned to the Pougbkeepsle station, where they were distributed around amongst kind * sympathizers, who forgot themselves ? their rest and their feelings ? in alleviating the sorrows of these .'so suddenly afflicted. THJB KILLED. Two persona have died from the injuries resulting from thi? sad accident. They are Mrs. Charles ?. Greene, of Utlca, the lady who was found, as we have already stated, in a dreadfully mutilated oonditlon on the boiler of the engine; she was found alive, but she died ahortly after her arrival in the city. Mrs. Hurlburt, of Albany, wai found in front of one of the damaged engines, and near her were found the rem nants of the body of an unknown man. So sadly muti lated was his body, that identification, other than by remnants of his attire, is rendered Impossible. THK WOUNDED were, as we laid, scattered throughout the city, which ten dered it a difficult task to obtain a csrrect list of then. As near as we could learn, the following is complete and correct:? At the house of Mr. Martin, the railroad agent, wore Miss Gardiner, of Schoharie, who suffers from a severe fracture of the left arm, an extensive scalp wound, con tused back and left foot. She was picked from the river, where she had been thrown by the shock. The exposure in the freezing water also brought on congestion of the left lung. The relatives of this lady, mother andtoro thers, arrived In the city at two o'oleck this day. 8be may probably recover, but her condition last evening did not warrant too sanguine hopes. Mr. A. B. F. Pond, also of Schoharie, received a severe contusion of the right leg below the knee, the calf much bruised. Ifls neck was considerably wrenched causing extensive braises. He also suffers soa?ewhat from having been immersed in the river, whencc he was picked out with Hiss Gardiner. At the Exchange House were disposed:? A Canadian lady, whose injuries had caused total aber ration of mind. She suffers from congestion of the brain and her recovery may be looked on as exceedingly doubt! Mrs. Hall, of New Haven, was badly bruised. She con tinues to do well. At Rutgers' House were:? A child of Mr. Roberts, of Albany, considerably scalded about the head, chest and limbs. This child has had the premonitory symptoms of convulsions, and great doubts are expressed ot her recovery. Mr. Roberts, the father of the child, who was himself considerably bruised about the head and face, Is doing favorably. ' ^ George Reins, a German, Of Madison, Ohio, received a fracture of the skull, but will probably recover. Besides tfcese a number of others were more or less in jured as follows :? J. D. Oott. of New York, was slightly braised. Abel Priest, of New York, received a cut on the head. Catharine Howell, (colored.) of New York, head and one leg bruised and collar bone broken. Mr.Bogert,ofNew York, head cut and his side ani limbs bruised. Mrs. Campbell, of Utica, slightly bruised.

THK RUINS, INCIDENTS, ETC. The ruins yesterday presented an appearance which showed the extent of the damage which had been mira culously escaped. Th-i demolished cars? the wood? the ashes-the iron, all scattered in a circle extending for maay rods, called for thankfulness that no greater injuries were done and no more lives lost. During the day there was considerable anxiety manifested to visit the sotne of to WIOck' *nd hunrtred" of citizen* went out during the Mrs. Webster, a ladv of Peeksklll, in a hind car, hav ing lu her arma a child six months of age, held it to her hreast, and thus protecting it, jumped from the train, saving the child, but injuring herself considerably. Mrs. Margaret Taft, a young woman from Troy, who was ? rovfe lor Boston to meet lier husband, was pre maturely delivered of a child of eight month.' weighing nine pounds, shortly after her escape from the ruins. Iso murk tf injuries were discovered on her percon and itis presumed that the birth was caused by alarm. Mother and child aro doing well. A Mr?. Blancbard. a lady inairied a week since was also much hurt in jumping. THE UNMNOWN PKAD.

AFTERNOON SESSION. Joseph Ppooner watt first called and sworn, he laid? I was a passenger in the expretg train of Wednesday; we had proceeded bat a short distance when I heard the whistle blow and the train stopped; I stepped from tha car as soon as the train stopi>ea: a* soon as I alighted I saw the oondnetor with a flag In his hand; he ran past me, and ruining back gave the flag to another man, who in turn ru> to another -man still farther on; saw these two go on toward Poaghkeepsie; the last I saw of the conductor was at the extreme end of the curve, holding the flag out so as to be seem; the conductor, as noon as he hod given the flag to the man, returned to the train, passed me and went to tha engineer; the express train then started by order of the conductor I turned to get on the train: as I tui ned 1 saw the pipe of the other engine eomiag at full speed; I jumped from where I was standing down the embankment on the ice; noticed two or three people fol lowing me; looked round and saw the way train loco motive smash into vhe rear oar, splitting it into two pieces and running into the second car: it was about three minutes from the time of my jumping off the train to the collision: the whistle blew tour or five minutes before the collision. Joseph Bowerson sworn ? I am conductor of the down express train: left I'oujhkeepeie at 2:66 P.

I am a flagman on the Hudson Railroad; I was on the way to notify tbe foreman of the broken rail on my section, near Milton Ferry ; I was on the north side o1' Mines' Point when I first saw the express train; I told the watchman above that there was a break in the road, and he should show hls flag on his rectlon; I cannot read the time table, but when a new one is sent me I take it to a friend who lives near by, and he reads it to me, and then the next day I watch the train, so I afterwards know when to expect it. John McCoon, sworn ? 1 am al?o a flagman on the r' ad ; I have been so for three years ; my station is three Quarters ol a mile from the cut, and the accident hap ] -ned on my section.

The three parties held private caucuses in diff -ront rooir.s of the Capitol last e\ening. At the whig Seward one a disposition wit manifested to throw up their poli tical designations, absolve the mombers from further allegiance to their candidate for Speaker, and alio* each member to vote upon his individual preferences. It was tinally decided to udhere to their cundidate through another day. as there was no knowledge a? to the result 01 the other caucusses. So they voted as usual, 3-1 tvr i'endergiht to-day. The Know Nothings bavin? thus far obtained a plurali ty for their candidate opon every trial, evinced no deaire to abandon their ground. Having the Canal Board and tw ate officers, they argued tliat it would be humiliating to yield one tech either side. So the caucus, or council, thought best to let well enough alone. Mi-. <)dell ran throe votes higher to-day than ever. About twenty democrats met in private, about utw third softs. There was much talk of harmony, s >1 uniting their strength upon a single candidate. N*ith? the ultra hards, nor indomitable softs, attended the ?' Ex ecutive meeting," as the Hon. Mr. Welly wixbed to ?'e i :? nate it. Ihe rejected resolution sent down bv tho s< fts c n the night of the first can cm was offered Several gentlemen made short speeches, but as a desire was ex pressed to have a fuller assemblage, no question vat taken, and the chairman, Mr. Keevo, was roou?"teo w tfivo i ublic notice at the adjournment of vhe Ho i-u ui day ot anotlier meeting t<. -night. The votinp to-day was about the saine as ye*:?vd*y, with the exception of the Hon. Mr. Mattes on, of Ch? nango, hitherto voting tor Bailey, who went ov<*r to the Hindoos. Party discipline v.lli drive him out ot the d?v tnocratic party, on account of this desertion of tho caucus candidate without asking leave. The Cfteen soft shells are only waiting lor the alightee I measure of txciine for coming in with the insjnrity. The caucus to-night will adopt the rejeeted resolution. and tbey will all step on the platform, ?Mept. possibly, Mr. Floyd, Mr. l'< nfleld, .Mr. Ilaucus wwi. S. Smith am White. After two or three trial/. to morrow, nu eft'ort will be made to either vote by ballot or adopt the plurality vol \ v ben either Mr. (Mell or the democratic candiiu'e v> >11 be elected.
