The steamer Moses Taylor, of the Webb line, arrived from Australia and

It will be remembered that the vessel left San Francisco on the 24th of
May, after having been handsomely christened by a banquet of prominent
business men, and inspected by the general public. When about 4 hours'
sail from the Heads, during the 1st Assistant Engineer's watch, the flue
of the starboard boiler collapsed. The hot water and steam escaping, rushed
down upon the doomed men below, killing 4 and fatally scalding the 1st
Assistant Engineer and a water tender; the 2 latter survived but a few
hours, although they received every attention from Surgeon WOODBRIDGE.
Annexed are the names of the victims: Thomas HARRISON, 1st Assistant
Engineer, age 32; Nicholas PENDERGAST, fireman, age 28; H. MOONEY,
fireman, age 27; Paul NICOLSON, coal passer, age 29; Wm. YOUNG,
