THE BURG COLLIERY EXPLOSION. The opinion that the unfortunate miners in the Bury Colliery in Saxony were all immediately killed by the explosion proves incorrect. In the note book of the miner Bahr the following entry has been found:— "This is the last place where we have taken refuge I have given up all hope, because the ventilation in the Sc^engottes fchfift and the Hoflnungs shaft has been destrojed in three separate places. May God take myself, and my relations and dear friends wno must die with me, as well as our families, under his protection.—Ernst Bähr" In the HoffiiuDgs shaft, too, the following word. have been found Janetz died. Richter left his family to God." And again :— "Farewell, dear wife! farewell, dear children! May God keep jou.—Gottlieb Heimann." And lastlv Farewell, dear wife and children! I did not think it would end so.—Obermann." One of the name of Schmidt had pinned a paper with the following words to the breast of his blouse My dear relation*, while seeing death before me I remem- ber you. Farewell till we meet again in happiness. The rest I must leave to you. Between nine and ten o'clock." On the other side stood the words :— "Dear wife, take good care of Mary. In a book in the bed room you will find a thaler. Farewell, dear mother and Sisters, till we meet again." All must have been over about ten o'clock on the 2,;d inst. Ou the 12"h, 236 bodies had been recovered. By far the greater part must have died suddenly. Some time will probably elapse before the others are recovered, on account of the masses of earth that ob- struct the way.
