The explosion at Fort Sumter. --The following is said to be a correct account of the explosion at Fort Sumter: Immediately preceding the evacuation by Maj. Anderson, the American flag was brought down with a salute of fifty guns. While it was being fired a gun exploded, killing one of Major Anderson's men, wounding three mortally, and severely injuring four others. Daniel Howe died last night whilst being-brought to the city hospital. Edward Galway was also mortally wounded, and Geo. Fielding, John Irwin and Geo. Prichard were severely hurt. All were privates of company E, first regiment U. S. Army. The man who was killed outright was tossed in the air, and came down a mangled mass of humanity.
