There were many inquiries, yesterday, at the Morgue and elsewhere for persons who were known or were believed to be on the steamer, and who have not been heard from since the accident. Several telegrams of inquiry were received at the Morgue, and all day long anxious friends continued to call, in the hope of obtaining some tidings, good or bad, of the absent ones. Many of these, prepared for the worst, procured removal permits in advance from Coroner Brady. Fifty or more persons visited the Homeopathic Hospital, where the dead and wounded had been brought to inquire for missing friends. Unfortunately, no list was kept of the names of the persons applied for or of the persons seeking them. The following list of the missing made up at the Morgue:

AUCAIGNE, Mrs. Minnie Howell, wife of Eugene Aucaigne, of No. 304 West Thirtieth-street.
HAWKINS, Chauncey, of Stephen H. Mills & Co., ship chandlers, No. 107 South-street, 38 years old.
HULBURD, Highland, residing at Great Neck, about 52 years of age, in the oil business. He went on board the Seawanhaka with a lady, who was saved. Just prior to the accident he went forward to smoke a cigar. He was seen on the deck after the fire broke out, by an acquaintance, and has not been seen or heard of since.

He was a second assistant to Winchester Britton, of Brooklyn, when the latter held the office of District Attorney some years ago.
