The explosion at the U. S. Arsenal in Pittsburgh — horrible Scenes. The terrible explosion at the U. S. Arsenal at Pittsburg. Pa., on the 17th, has been noticed. --About one hundred and fifty girls were employed in the building in which the explosion occurred, putting up fixed ammunition, and of these over eighty were killed instantly, or so horribly wounded that they died soon after. The buildings were blown to atoms, and the bodies of the inmates carried high into the sky. The greater number, however, perished by fire while lying under the ruins of the shattered buildings. The streets leading to the ground were filled with an excited crowd, including hundreds of frantic women, who rushed wildly through the multitude, shrieking and sobbing as though their hearts would break.

From the hair it was evident that the body was that of a females, but the identification was out of the question. Higher up lay ther, disfigured in the same frightful manner; and badly burned besides, and around as far as the eye could reach lay fragments of human remains — here an arm, there a leg. Mr. Geary, foreman of rooms Nos. 13 and 14, states that at the time of the first explosion he was standing on the porch in front of the engine room.
