The body of the eighth victim of the Progreso explosion was found yesterday afternoon floating in the bay, about 600 yards distant from the wrecked steamer. It was later identified as that of Edward W. NELSON, a riveter, who lives with his parents at 232 Mississippi street. The features were unrecognizable, and had it not been for a black scarf found upon the body identification would have been impossible. One leg was missing, and had evidently been blown from the body by force of the explosion. The identification was made by William NELSON, a brother of the dead riveter, and the body was found by Bert RODGERS, an employee of the Wrecking Company. The deceased was twenty-two years of age, and unmarried. The search yesterday, with this single exception, was fruitless, and last night Captain WHITELAW of the WHITELAW Wrecking Company and Coroner LELAND returned with the report that unless explosives could be used no further progress could be made.

The 'Bulletin' of last evening contains the following: This morning, G. NEWMAN was found dead in room 206 at the Occidental Hotel, having shot himself through the head. In his right hand he held one of Smith & Wesson's 5-shooters, 2 chambers of which had been discharged. Coroner LETTERMAN was immediately called in and made an examination of the remains. The bullet from the weapon had entered NEWMAN's head at the right temple, and had passed into the brain. Several months since, when the City Hall commissioners selected the plans of Augustus LAVER as the one on which the new hall would be constructed, that gentleman returned to New York, and some days since returned with Mr. NEWMAN, who was to assist him in the work here. For some time past Mr. NEWMAN had suffered from a physical sickness, and had several operations performed on him. He intimated an intention to shoot himself, in speaking of his physician, Dr. GILLINGHAM, on Tuesday evening. Today a letter was found in his room addressed to Mr. SAVER, in which NEWMAN requested him to take charge of his effects.
