Pilot Rollings is badly scalded on tho hands. Capt. T. C. Sweeny is slightly hurt by flying timbers. The Hont. Torn to Pieces. Mrs. E. W. -Roborlson is slightly hurt She says that when tho Corona arrivod opposite Falsa River landing, sixteen milcu below Bayou Sara, ono of her boilors exploded, tearing tho boat to pieces, when sho sank in deep water in a few seconds. Mrs. Robertson wns wodged in tha ladies' cabin with some of tho debris .lying across her lower limbs, but was suddenly released and found herself floating in tho river. She sank twlco, but luckily waspickol up and escaped with only a tow painful brulsea. A Pi<«aen;ter'g Statement. Hon. L, F. Mason, secretary of state, who was a passongor on the Corona, states that he was in tha cabin talking to Mrs. Robertson about 1U o'clock yesterday morning when the explosion occurred. Ha escaped with life-prosarvors nnd assisted In saving Mrs. Robertson and another lady. There was very little timo for preparation for escape, as the boat went down like lead a few seconds after tho explosion occurred. As the steamer City of Bt. Louis o ime down she was hailod and took on board all the paasan- gers and crew who were not lost in the river. No one was able to gave any explano- tion aa to tho jause of the sudden disaster. Not Due to High Preiuiire. Tho Picayune Baton Rouge special says: "Capt T. C. Sweeny, one of the owners of the line, who assumed command on tho death of Capt Blanks, says the explosion was not due to a too high prossuro of stoam. Ho just bad occasion to examine tho gaugo, and is positive there wna not a pressure of more than 150 pounds. The boat had a moderate cargo. She was In mid-stream, just, below the landing at Arbroth, and bnd just whistled to pass the City of St Louis, fortunately coming down nt the time. . The explosion had a downward tendency, and blew out the bottom of the boat, causing her to sink immediately. Tha cabin was torn tu two, the rear portion floating down the stream and bearing a number of the saved. Capt Sweeny happened to be forward, and started at once to put out the flames, which began to burn in sovoral plucjs. Ha says the boat would undoubtedly have burned had she not gone down imino lintoly. None of tha books, papers, or other valuable? wera recovered. Two Men Ouwhod to l>orttM.
