Great Native Procession, in New York, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Great Native Procession, in New York, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Great Native Procession, in New York, 1844. Demonstration of riders with banners - one decorated with feathers reads: We have ruled and will again!'. In the background a model ship explodes. ...a procession of the Native American Party...six or eight men attired fantastically as Indian warriors, all mounted. Then came their banners and some flags, which were somewhat remarkable...The procession was orderly and decorous in their march; but when the procession had reached Second-street, near avenue A, and the gunner was in the act of firing a salute from the Miniature Ship, carried among the banners, &c., the powder-magazine exploded, carried away a large piece out of the side of the vessel, and shattered several windows in the vicinity. We regret to learn that two or three boys were severely hurt by the catastrophe'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

The late Miss Clara Webster, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The late Miss Clara Webster, 1844. British dancer Clara Vestris Webster died after her dress caught fire as she performed in a romantic ballet at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London. ...a very lamentable accident...during the performance of "The Revolt of the Harem," which has proved fatal to Miss Clara Webster, the dancer. In the second act of the ballet, the ladies of the Harem are discovered bathing, among whom Zulica, the royal slave (Miss Webster), is one. During the scene, the gas placed at the bottom of the stage...caught the light drapery of Miss Webster's dress, and in an instant her whole person was enveloped in flames. This frightful event, taking place on the stage, in sight of the audience, the whole house was in a state of consternation, and screams issued from the ladies in front of the boxes and pit, who were the first to perceive the appalling accident'.

Wreck of 'The Waterman' steamer, off Hastings, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Wreck of "The Waterman" steamer, off Hastings, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Wreck of "The Waterman" steamer, off Hastings, 1844. ...this gallant little craft met with the following serious accident off Hastings. It appears that she arrived at Dover from Ostend...and left that port about noon on a pleasure trip to Hastings, having on board a party of the directors of the company, Mr. Penn, the engineer, and several other gentlemen. She arrived at Hastings...and in passing the town unfortunately too near in shore, struck on a dangerous reef off the Priory, known as the Castle Rocks, which she passed over, and injured her bottom. It being found that the water was flowing fast into her, she was put about, and run on the sand off the Parade, where she filled as the tide flowed, and at high water the hull was covered. A quantity of empty casks were slung round her during the evening, by means of which she was got further in, and on Sunday she was pumped out, and had her leaks stopped. She has since floated off, and been removed opposite the Priory stade for the purpose of undergoing repairs'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
