Upon investigation it was found that 160 men were in the mine at the time, 112 feet below the surface, and undoubtedly all of them are dead. Two men were in the car coming up and as they were near the top they were the only men who escaped." Rochestek, N. Y., Nov. 10.—Tlie most disastrous and fatal fire that hap pened in this city for many years occurred last evening, and tne loss of life is expected to reach between fifty and sixty persons. A general alarm was sounded at 7:30 o'clock, and the fire was discovered to be in the packing room of the Rochester steam gauge and lantern works, an important factory employing a large number of men. So busy has the factory been lately that the men have been working night and day to catch up on orders. The locality where the fire occurred is regarded as somewhat dangerous and when the report got abroad that the lantern works and the cotton factory in its vicinity were on fire there was intense excitement all over the city, which was increased when at 9 o'clock the rumor got abroad that a large number of men had been killed, Tlie building to which the fire was confined was six stories high. About sixty men were working in the three upper floors, and as soon as they found there was fire underneath they began to leap from the windows, ignoring the fire escapes with balconies that were ready for them on the south side of the building. In these leaps quite a niunber of men were injured, many of them so seriously that they will probably die. By 9 o'clock the building was entii'ely destroyed and five men had been taken out dead and sixteen seriously injured. liater, Rochester, Nov. 10.—The pecuniary loss will amount to $250,000. The building'stood on the edge of the upper falls of the Genesee river. These falls are ninety-six feet high. When the firemen arrived the windows on the street side of the building were filled with men calling for help. Tliere were sixty-five men inside. The firemen answered them by telling them not to jump. The men paid no attention to the cries, and soon the air was tilled with falling human bodies. There are twenty-one missing men. It is supposed that all the missing are dead, and in the ruins. It was reported at 10 a. m., that ten more bodies had been found in the ruins. It is now known that thirty-nine lives were lost, and fifteen persons badly injured by last night's fire.
