THE LATE ACCIDENT.
We regret to say, that the loss of life resulting from the melancholy accident on board the Passport is greater than what the Telegraph Report mentioned. Sixteen people have died, and 35 have been scalded: some of which are not expected to live. The whole of the sufferers are Immigrants. It affords some consolation to know, that the sad loss of life is purely accidental, and that none of the officers or crew are held blameable. Twenty-nine Cabin Passengers have published a letter to Capt. Bowen, in which they not only exonerate him from all blame, but thank him for "the prompt and able manner in which he succeeded in allaying the fears of the passengers, as well as in averting, as far as possible, the danger to which they were exposed on the evening of the fatal disaster."
