Identifying the Dead.
San Francisco, May 24.
A train from Santa Cruz arrived early this morning, bringing the number killed and wounded by yesterday's accident. A crowd awaited the arrival, anxious for the fate of friends, and many touching scenes occurred when the ferry boat reached the ship. Two more dead have been identified:
CLAYTON F. MERRILL, of Soquel.
J. JORPPITZ, of San Francisco.
Three remain still unknown, fourteen in all.
The most seriously injured remain at Santa Cruz, the Mayor of which city has requested the business houses to be closed today. The wounded are comfortably provided for at the Occano House and with two exceptions doing well.

Another Death Reported.
A Santa Cruz dispatch says the young son of HERMAN RIPAN, of San Francisco, has just died.
All the hotels have been thrown open for hospital purposes and an efficient corps of physicians and nurses are in attendance.
