Death of Commodore Vanderbilt. New York Jan. 4. Commodore Vanderbilt died this morning at 10 51 of clock aged eighty two years and seven months. He remained perfectly conscious to the last moment of his life and died almost without a struggle. Since the 2d it has been apparent to his doctors that his hours were numbered and that at most he could live Only a few Days or a week. At four of clock this morning his condition became rapidly worse and he expressed a desire to see the Rev. Or. Deems his spiritual adviser. The latter arrived in a few minutes and the Commodore said a a i think i am nearly gone or. Deems prayed by the bedside of the dying Man and then some members of the family Sang a few hymns in Low tones the music seeming to soothe the sufferer. All his family were sent for during the night. His eldest son William Vanderbilt arrived after Midnight and remained to the end. All of his daughters were present and his wife who has been present by his bedside during the entire period of his sickness was at her Post As usual. . Lindsley and Elliott were also in attendance. They warned both Commodore Vanderbilt and his friends to expect the worst. The news of his death spread rapidly and very Many friends called at the House this morning and sympathized with the mourners. Cornelius Vanderbilt jr., arrived just before his father died. The news of the Commodore s death had Little effect on the Market his death having been so Long expected. The decline in prices ranged from a to \ per cent. It is estimated by those in position to judge that Commodore Vanderbilt was owner of securities having a present Market value of about $85,000,000, and that of this total fully $55,000,000 consisted of Stock and Bonds of then a York Central amp Hudson River railway. The bulk of this vast property is to be kept together and provision has been made for reinvesting the accruing interest on it in his favorite securities. When the news of the commodores death was received at the City Hall the flags were lowered to half Mast a course which was soon after followed by the principal hotels and other Public buildings a Railroad horror. Ashtabula Ohio dec. 29. One of the most terrible Railroad accidents on record happened Here at 7 30 of clock this evening. Passenger train no. 5, on the Lake Shore amp Michigan Southern Railroad coming West with two engines had reached the Bridge Over the Ashtabula River a few rods East of the depot in safety in spite of heavy drifts of Snow along the track. Just As the Foremost engine had cleared the Bridge it gave Way and the entire train consisting of eleven cars four of which were sleepers was precipitated into the River a distance of seventy five feet. By the breaking of a coupling pin the head engine escaped the general destruction. For a moment it would have been possible to escape the conflagration which followed by the Quick use of a bucket of water but no one could reach the place in time and in a moment the flames gathered and spread and the whole mass became a Sheet of fire. The scene which followed could have no description that would portray its awful horrors. The crash of the falling Bridge was heard for Over a mile and the lurid Light that reflected on the sky a moment later brought men with ropes and buckets to the Rescue. Those who could be picked from the wreck about fifty in number Many of whom were fatally injured were rescued before the flames reached them and among these were the conductor and train boy. Heartrending shrieks from victims that could not be reached rent the air and froze the blood of Strong men who would gladly have risked their own lives but were powerless to save. Of those on Board a Large majority perished one Man relates that he was in a double seat with three others Over a game of cards and when the train went Down two were instantly crushed to death and the third terribly injured. He alone was saved. Two Little babies were rescued but one in an almost lifeless i condition. In another place fire and smoke came in such volumes and so suddenly that the men were driven Back just As they were on the Point of reaching a woman and child who were wedged in a mass of timbers but still alive. One Man was fastened in near the engine and there for full thirty minutes heroic endeavours were made to loosen the weight above him but in vain. Of those taken out Many have already died. Citizens have thrown open their houses and the sufferers Are receiving All the care that human interest can bestow. Two were at once conveyed to the residence of the mayor whose efforts to save and care for the injured were untiring. The latest estimate places the number of killed at too. Ashtabula dec. 31. During the entire Day Over too men have continued the labor of Clearing away the debris of the wrecked train Aud Bridge in Ashtabula River tearing and carrying away so much of the destroyed train As May be movable. The approaches to the River Are thronged. Upon the High abutment men Are at work with improvised derricks lowering timbers for the temporary Bridge. Over the ice in the River Plank walks Are Laid for Chemento walk upon. Looking from the West abutment seventy two feet Down into the River is a dizzy sickening sight As one attempts to imagine the horrible descent of this ill fated train. Stretching across the River at the left looking eastward lies what is left of the Iron truss Bridge whose fatal flaw7 can never now be discovered the Structure is so Bent and twisted out of All resemblance to its former angular self. This netted tangled Chain of Iron As it lies Black and distorted seems almost to writhe. At the right of it and of the original line of the Bridge the train had lain. Now heaven Only knows what is under this wreck of oar trucks and Iron Frame work which the flames have left unconsumed. There Are none of the cars left. They Are All burned and one hardly recognizes at once what this mangled ruin had once been. The locomotive alone i9 unmistakable. It lies near the foot of the tall masonry upon the Summit of which its front end rested when the Bridge broke turned completely upside Down the cab smashed and Lilied with twisted rods and splinters the Side broken and Bent nearly double the guide bars twisted out of place and All the mechanism of the link motion torn from under the boiler. The smoke stack and upper surface of the boiler is under the ice and water. That this monster fell from that great height is awful but that within that shattered cab upside Down two human beings were carried Down yet not to immediate death is miraculous. La sounds so in the telling but the sight of the tall abutment and the mangled engine at its base puts it beyond the reach of human ingenuity to conceive How or. Folsom the Engineer and his fireman Ever lived a moment. The fireman died to Day. A horse is employed in pulling out the heaviest pieces of the wreck and from time to time the labourers turn up some fragment of human flesh or raiment. Boxes of All sizes from a soap Box to a coffin stand about to receive what is found. In one Box Are a lock of hair upon apiece of the Scalp a single Vertebra a shred or two of smoked or burned flesh a strip of cloth with Large White buttons and a charred Bone a pocket Book charred and soaked with water and a Sample card of porcelain buttons lie near. An overcoat folded and Frozen solid has just been carried up the Hill. Thus the relics Are taken out. In the freight depot the bodies lie in boxes numbered when unidentified. There Are Over thirty bodies or fragments Here and the sight of them is too horrible to describe. One Here a Mere cinder another a trunk headless limbless Here a body burned Black All except a single Arm and hand that probably reached Down into the water the hand clenched in the fearful struggle with fire Only a few of them perhaps seventeen or eighteen can be identified and even the sex of Many cannot be determined. The bodies Are All Frozen solid and thus Are More easily handled without crumbling. The Relief train from Cleveland which came up last night took Back to Day Twenty five of the less seriously injured. The Coroner summoned a jury to Day and commenced the inquest. Or. E. Burchell of Chicago one of the survivors has made the following statement was in the next car to the parlor car the third Sleeper from the rear there were two sleepers behind me there were eleven cars in the train left Buffalo at about two of clock Friday afternoon started an hour late had a very heavy Snow storm when we left they claim 165 passengers were on i think there were Between 200 Aud 25q i do not think we ran More than fifteen Miles an hour until within perhaps an hour before the Accident we were then running ten Miles an hour at the last station before the Accident the Snow was very heavy and we All thought we should be snowed in there i got out and got some sandwiches we lost an hour and a half a time Between Buffalo and this last station before the Accident i went through the cars and found the two Ordinary passenger cars were crowded the smoking car was quite full there were two passenger coaches ahead of the smoker next to the smoking car was the parlor car about one third full or. Bliss the Well known singing evangelist and family were in that car i was in the next car to that the car in which i was was pretty full behind the parlor car there were three sleepers these were quite full we reached the Bridge As Well As i can make it out at about a Quarter to eight of clock the train was due there at a Quarter past five of clock the country around there is rolling but the Snow drifts prevented us seeing much of the surroundings i done to think we were going quite ten Miles an hour one engine had got Over but it was almost pulled Back with the Shock the whole train was on the Bridge when the Structure suddenly went Down and not a vestige remained of it there was no such thing As running off the track the Bridge broke with a terrific smash with the weight of the whole train upon it the first sound i heard was a cracking in front of the car i heard this twice and then heard a similar cracking sound in the rear i then became conscious of a sudden sinking of the car the cars seemed to be sinking Down in the Gulf below there was a general crash and i was recalled to consciousness by the Shock of Landing in the. Snow Creek eighty feet below the first thing i heard was a woman a scream it was i think miss Bingham she cried a ooh help me help me a some of the passengers had got out of the windows and i then heard the cry of lire As the lady cried i broke the window a gentleman helped me to pushed this lady through the window i then jumped out after her she Sank into the Snow i scrambled out of the window then i think i was the last in the car As most of them had got through the windows the car was on fire at both ends at one end i know and i think at both As soon As i got out i found the Snow in the Creek was very deep nearly up to Ray Waist certainly above my Knees i pulled miss Bingham out of the Snow and carried her on Ray Back up to the Bank i stumbled three times and the third time a gentleman helped me to get her to the Only House a Small sort of engine House that was on the Bank i saw the fire was gaining rapidly on the train it burned like Oil at that time i did no to know7 there were any lives lost we saved All or nearly All the people in our car there were some broken arms and legs and some severe bruises and cuts the wind was blowing very strongly at the time and there was a heavy snowstorm the wreck covered the whole space Between the two piers and the burning train was the length of the Bridge some of the cars were smashed All to pieces and the others Lay wrecked in every conceivable shape the fire was very Clear and hot by the time i got out i was completely exhausted and i Lay there cramped for about three quarters of an hour they brought about fifty two alive into and around the House and then they transported them to the town they were All badly Hurt. I think two of these died after they were taken to the town one lady gave birth to a child at the hotel in the town and one Man died who had his leg Cut off the scene i surveyed from the engine House on the Bank was perfectly sickening the whole train was a mass of fire and the wounded were lying about the wreck and crawling away from it the heat was so intense at that time that one could not get very near the sight was dreadful Heads were Cut open bodies were Cut and arms and legs broken and mangled after i and others got to that engine House no one could return within fifteen minutes after that time the heat was so intense that no one could approach the train and those who were buried under it had to crawl away As Best they could there w Ere a great Many in the cars who could not get out the cars were so jammed together the townspeople did everything that possibly could be done but they could not get near the burning wreck within half an hour after the train went Down the depth from the Bluffs to the bed of the River is about sixty or seventy feet the wounded were carried to the hotel and very kindly cared for three or four physicians were promptly on the spot and they did All that medical skill was capable of the lady who gave premature birth to the child in the night was injured by having her foot smashed the scene was an awful one in its horrible details one lady was stripped of All her clothing by being dragged through one of the car win Dows she was badly Cut and was carried up to the hotel the survivors were bleeding from cuts and mangled wounds and Many of them charred with fire and blackened with smoke i believe that or. Bliss got through a window7 and expected to be Able to pull his wife and children through this is Only my conjecture their car was blocked up completely and the family jammed in so that escape except through the window s was impossible the cars were burning at the extremities from the stoves at each end i believe Bliss was burned to death trying to save his wife and two Little one a number of surviving passengers heard the shrieks of the women Flond children but could not get to them they were in a perfect Furnace the figures of those who were burned up in the cars could be plainly seen they were burned up so badly that identification in Many instances was impossible some of those who perished in the fire were burned to ashes Bones and charred limbs were picked out and of some of the lost there were but ghastly trunks i saw but one other Man who escaped with As Little injury As i did i was badly bruised the train burned very quickly it was consumed within an hour in every car were two stoves one at each end and the lamps were All lighted at the time.
