About three o’clock yesterday morning Officer Miles beard an out-cry from the interior of Leighton’s house, followed by a noise of strug gling. On reaching the house he saw a win dow raised, and a man dropped out followed by another man who began to kick him.

State Street Concert.—The fine concert given at the beautiful chapel of State street Congregational church last evening, in aid of Williston Chapel, was well attended, and very enjoyable in point of musical expression. Where all of our resident vocalists present ac quitted themselves so well, we can hardly men tion one without naming all. The published programme was carried out and the other varied selections proved entirely satisfactory to the appreciative audience. There seemed to be a desire to encore everv niece, and they all deserved the compliment. Mrs. Thomp son accompanied the pieces on the piano forte, and also executed a triumphal march very art istically. It was a notable fact that all the songs descriptive of Spring and the singing of birds were especially applauded. Another of this series of concerts may be expected this season for the same object. Drowned.—A mau named James Dennis was found dead on the flats at Deering, yester day morning. The man came from Philadel phia but recently, and since then has been em ployed at the Casco Iron Works. He was known to be intoxicated Wednesday night, and was probably in the same condition yesterday morning. It is supposed that while under the influence of liquor he lost his way and was suf focated by the tide. He could have been under water but a short time, as the scrip in his pock ets was dry. Coroner Gould held an inquest, which resulted in a verdict of accidental drown ing. The man was about thirty years of age, and was unmarried. Generosity of the Brackett street Grammas School for Girls.—Whenever a great charity is started, it is indeed wonderful to see from how many sources come help and assistance; and now the Maine General Hos pital Fair has received from the girls of the Brackett street Grammar School, the sum of twenty-five dollars ($25.)

Springfield, 111., April 3.—The Farmers’ State Convention yesterday elected D. W. Davis, President. Gov. Bpveridge, in an address, rec ognized the fact ofextortion on tbe part of rail roads in matters of freight,and urged farmers to bring influence to bear upon them through their representati ves. Resolutions were adopted con demning the Congressional salary bill; that chartered monopolies not regulated by law are detrimental to public prosperity; that'railways not under strict governmental regulations have proved extortionate and opposed to free com merce between States—a despotism which im poverishes the people and corrupts government. I and must be made subservient to public inter ests; that now is the most favorable time to set tle the question whether a State that creates a corporation cannot control it; that it is essential that the contest between the people and an in terns1 which can combine four thousand mil lions dollars in the uuion shall continue until corporations acknowledge the supremacy of the law; that it is the duty of the Legislature to pass laws fixing the rates of freight and pas sage; that the Legislature should pass a bill en forcing the principal that railroads are publio highways; that railroads should be compelled to carry all freight offered in the country through which they pass; that railway passes given to legislators are corrupting;and that du ties on materials for cars, steamboats and sail ing vessels should be repealed. The Convention to-day adopted the resolution recommending farmers to keep farm expense accounts, that tbe actual cost of production may be made public. The resolution of yester day favoring a repeal of the tariff on iron, steel, &c.. was reconsidered, as was that of censuring members of Congress, for voting for, and the President signing tbe bill increasing salaries of members of Congress, and both were indefin itely postponed. One delegate protested against this action after a majority of the dele gates had left. Great confusion ensued but finally quieted by adoption of resolution, that any resolution not based on the article of State Constitution entitled “Railroads,” will not motif flto noPAsaitioa rtf rtrnrlnooro in nnnlnnin« monopolies to reasonable maximum rates of freight and passenger tariff, aud unjust dis criminations, and that such maximum rate should be fixed by Legislative enactment as directed by the State Constitution. Adjourned sine die. _ Railroad Accident.

Scene** at the Office of the (/Omnany nt New York. Nbw York, April 3. - Large crowds all the morning have surrounded the bulletin board outside of the office of the White Star Line, eagerly reading the passengers lost and saved. A continuous stream of persons are passing in and out of the office anxiously seeking infor mation regarding friends who were on board the ill-fated Atlantic. The Atlantic’s Cargo. Papers received from Europe by the agent of the White Star line here, state the Atlantic had 1836 tons assorted cargo on board. made Insane. Mrs. Graf, wl o lost her husband and two children on the Atlantic, is a raving maniac here consequent upon her affliction. The Atlantic’s Deviation not Understood. Mr. Sparks this forenoon received the follow ing from Ismay, Iinrie & Co., Liverpool agents of the line: Liverpool, April 3, 1873.—To J. H. Sparks: The Atlantic's deviation to Halifax is incom prehensible. The quantity of coal on board was 967 tons, against an average consumption during eighteen voyages of 744 tons. Ismay, Imrie & Co. This would seem to destroy the theory of an insufficiency of coal, and relieve the company of the terrible responsibility. The agents here state they do not know what to make of it, but think the Atlantic experienced very strong head winds, compelling her to burn nearly double the usual quantity of coal to keep up'her cus tomary speed. The List of Passengers. The duplicate list of passengers did not ar rive by the City of Montreal as was expected. The complete list however will not be received here before ten or twelve days. It was tele graphed for at Liverpool yesterday, and will be sent by mail. The Cunard steamer Algeria, which sailed on the 22d of March will bring a list of the-passengers whose passages were pre paid here, au<3 their destination. Freeman D.-Mackwall, a cabin passenger of the Atlantic, sends tka following despatch to the Associ ated Press: -N Halifax, April 3.—Say to the ..friends of the cabin passengers of the steamer Atlauticthat I will remain with the wreck until I have secur ed allot the lost cabin passengers. I have boxes going to the wreck this morning to re ceive the bodies. The bodies of Mrs. Fisher and Miss Merritt we have. The bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Merritt. Miss Scrymser and John H. Price of New York, 1 have great hopes of se curing. Belief for the SaOeren. Subscriptions will commence at once here and elsewhere for the sufferers by the disaster. The steerage passengers saved had many of them all their earthly goods, which being lost, they ore left in a wholly destitute condition. The suspense of many people has been relieved by cable despatches announcing that friends who were thought to be on the Atlantic did not take passage in her. The Insurance—Classification of the Pas sengers. London, April 3.—The steamship Atlantic was insured in London for $150,000. There were 760 steerage passengers on the ill-fated vessel. The passengers and crew of the Atlan tic as she sailed from Liverpool were classified as follows: English, 19S men, 74 women, 28 male children, 21 female children; Scotch, 7 men, 4 women; Irish, 43 men, 18 women, 3 children; other nationalities, 150 adult males, 32 women, 19 male children and 18 female children. A large number of emigrants em igrants embarked at Queenstown, making the total number of souls upon the steamship when she sailed from that port 952. Tarina Matters. Halifax, April 3.—Nothing of 'importance from the wreck has been received to day. A schooner load of coffins has been sent to Pros pect. About 150 of the survivors left here for Portland in the steamer Chase, and more will go to-night. It is probable that an investigation under the Dominion Shipping Act will be held. The officers aud some of the passengers will remain here for a dav or two to mv« statement if necessary before the tribunal. Statement of Quartermaster Thomas. Robert Thomas, Quartermaster, says: At 2 o’clock I went upou the bridge with the second officer, Mr. Metcalf. 1 told him not to stand into the land so, as the ship had run her dis tance to make Shambro light from my calcula tions. He told me that 1 was neither the cap tain nor mate. I then went to the fourth offi cer, Mr. Brown, and asked him if I should go on the main yards as he would notjsee the land until he struck on to it. He told me that it was no use for me to go up. I then relieved the man at the wheel; and at 2.30 the second officer told the captain, who was reposing in the chart room, that the weather was getting thick. The second officer went outside of the chart room. The man on the look-out called out “I see ahead;” and the second officer ran and told the captain that they were among the ice, and shortly after the ship struck. The time was 3.15. 1 put the helm hard starboard and reversed the engines fu'l speed astern. I left the wheel house and went to the after wheel house and got the axes out and distributed them for the purpose of cutting away the gear about the boats. William Purdy, Quartermaster, was the first that attempted to swim ashore, but when going he said, “Good-bye, Thomas; will you come with me;” but I replied I wanted to save the boy and his mother, who were there. Then I saw that the boy and mother were swept away. I swam on shore and when I landed on the rock a passenger called out, “Save me,” which I did. I traversed from rock to rock, falling sometimes from exhaustion, with this man with me, until I found the signal port, a place where the fish ermen have a look-out, aud signalized to the boats, and I then called out for help. Two old men and a boy came to my assistance, and l went to the house with them aud procured a line and then retraced my steps to the beach, where I saw a lot of passengers and crew upon the rock. Speakman, the Quartermaster, swam to wards me with a line from the rock and I hove my line and caught him and pulled him ashore. As soon as I had done so we hauled in the iiae which he had from the rock and made fast the end of my line to it so as to make it stronger. Soon as I got the line made fast 1 told those that were on the rock to come on shore one by on', as I would save them. The first man sav ed in this way I do not know, but the second one was Mr. Brady, the third officer. I saved in this manner about 70 as near as I remember. In some i stances, as the line was some dis tance overhead and the persons too exhausted, I had to reach down and pull them up; some I had to go into the water for, which was out of my depth, by a line fastened around my waist. In this manner the two old men would drag me and the man I rescued ashore. I remained there from 4 o’clock till 9, when 1 fell down through exhaustion. One of the stewards and somebody else came and relieved me and I was carried away to a house, where I was kindly cared for. A Hospitable People. Every care and attention has been bestowed upon the survivors since their arrival here by the marine department, the city authorities, Cunard & Co., and by private citizens, may of whom have cheerfully contribnted towards the distressed passengers. Harrowing Incidents. Some of the incidents of the disaster as re lated by the survivors are harrowing. At one time during the weary watch before dawn, the fore boom broke loose from its fastenings and swinging arouud instantly crushed to death about twenty persons who were gathered on the house on deck. Several passengers are report ed to have been drowned by life buoys which not being properly managed, they overturned
and drowned the unfortunates before assist ance could be rendered. Some of them who had life buoys on and endeavored to reach the rock by means of the line from the vessel, not having them properly on the lower part of their bodies were floated up with their heads down. In this manner many of them were drowned before reaching the rock. One young man with no clothing on save a shirt and vest, with two life buoys fastened around his body, leaped into the water and en deavored to reach the rock. The passengers who gave the statement say that they endeav ored to persuade him from the attempt, but he persisted. When they were at last rescued and landed on the shore, the body of this person who perished in the attempt to swim ashore was the first they saw and the life buoys were still aronnd him. Several of the passengers who were landed from the Delta yesterday were considerably bruised about the body and lower limbes One man had his two leg* broken and others were sore from being knoeked against the rocks,that they were scarcely able to stand. Three or four had to be sene to the hospital last night. statement or a Bay. The only youth saved from the wreck makes the following statement: My name is John Hinley. I a... about twelve years of age. T got on board the Atlantic at Liverpool with my father, mother and young brother. We all belonged to Ashton, Lacanshire. The first thing worth mentioning that he knew of that he was asleep in his berth when a great noise awakened him, although he did not hear any voices there seemed to oe a great rush, and he stumbled out of bed and into the crowd. The greater portion passed him, but he saw six men crowding into a top berth in the upper steer age. He followed them. One of the men broke a window and got out and I did the same. One kind hearted individual pushing me through before he had got out himself. Once outside I held on by the ropes until res cued by the life boat. What became of his parents and his brother he did not know, but is certain that they were drowned. The family were on their way to New York at the invitation ot two married daughters who had settled there. The Crew of the Atlautic. The crew was one of the hardest that was ever gathered in any vessel. They were pick ed up about the Liverpool wharves and docks, and it was with the greatest difficulty that they were kept under durmg the voyage. The store keeper states that one of them made an attempt to snatch his watch and chaiu one night but was foiled. On another occasion during the storm of the 25th, he states that some of the crew attempted to break into the spirit room, aud it was for a while feared that force would have to be used to prevent them. When the boats came from the shore to rescue the survivors, the sailors, repeatedly pushed passengers outside or knocked them down and jumped in the boats, Rhode Island Election.
