UERQE3 OF THE LCCOEIOTIYE,
Tbe Jndrperideni contains some interest
ing sketches of the engineers on our rail
roads. We quote from it a few instances
of personal fidelity and bravery ;. . i JL
A few years. S30 my friend Osborne,
who has driven the locomoiive for the
mail train on tho Morris and Essex Rail
road for twenty years at least, with fault
less- faithfulness, '"wai once delayed bv
snow on-the track for several hours, but
received explicit orders from the superin
tendent not that splendid officer who lias
lately resigned his office on the road to
go ahead," for the road was clear, no
other train was on the track. After sat
isfying himself that he had not misunder
stood the order he 'left the summit "ona
steep down grade, and in round'iDg a sharp
curve came on a train that was ascending
the ame grade under foil head of steam.
Ia "'an instant he - wliistled down he
brakes-and reversed his engine.: The
noble thing, under such a tremendous
strain, as if fully aware of the danger,
obeyed and threw itself back to avert the
danger. ' 1
' Meanwhile the other engineer had done
the sams thir with his locomotive, but
it was possible only to modify the shock.
Together, rushed these two panting, and
reluctant giants, their joint weight?, not
less than sixty tens., with the gathered
momentum of their following trains. They
rose like two furious .animals in fight,
standing on end ; and in a trice the two
splendid machines were a wreck. The
cars beLind tbea were alio bxdly crushed.
Oibcrne did not leap from hi3 engine,
but, never moving bi3 bands from " the
levers which controlled it, he stood as
resdute as a rock t his post until , the
came, and then, quick as thou:
adjusled his valves to allow the steam-to
e-crpo without tm explosion. ' . Our war

sum of one hundred dollars, txi
for the s
orr which poor "Bcb's" wife met with
this query : "2Ir. , would you sell
023 of your legs for a hundred dollars!"
During the war an incident occurred on
the Pennsylvania Central, which was: re
taiea 10 me or en eye-witness, fliy in
formant was with a -regiment of soldiers
going from Pittsburgh to Harrisburg in a
special train. Between Johnstown and
the summit they were delayed by a freight
train off the track, or a part of its cars
on. . inis they learned at one oi- the sta
tions : and remained there until- they
should be informed that the, track was
clear. It was in the night, and most of
the thousand men on the train were asleep,
unconscious of their danger. V Four heavi
ly loaded coal cars belonging to ther train
ahead bad. by accident, become detached,
and began the descent of the heavy grade
at a speed which soon .became ' terrible.
The engineer of the special train heard the
roar of the descending cars, and surmised
what was the matter. . In an .instant . he
ordered his engiqe to be; detached .from
the train,' and put on steam to meet the
runaway cars if possible to' break their
force and save his train. - ' r '""- -
His locomotive was a large freight, and
he had moved' several . rods ahead when
the coal cars struck him, like a thunder
bolt, and crushed his engine .back, on the
train ; but fcii heroic courage . had Saved
many lives. His engine was utterly de
molished, many of his cars were also
crushed r but eo had he broken the force
cjthe shock that no lives were lost..' , The
man's name was Story, and his 'grateful
beneficiaries presented, him soma elegant
silver-plate, with, the: deed itself, and their
names engraved oa them h When; asked
why he did no abandon" his train ha re
plied, 'Quick s lightning, I thought I'
id better die than to have those runaway
fC&rs cut dean; through my -train,- destroy-
1 lag nanoreaj v: . it was a Heroic answer.

by the number cf its long and high trestle
bridges. . With few exceptions, these, are
now filled up,, and ths road isr-beccming

pany1 were in great straits j and' many J of
.their "employees were unpaid. Some of
the men were: desperated and; as ! the fact
proved, dangerous: On a certain. evening
a train iwaa approaching !one of thesa high.
trestle bridges. v It, was. known ! that- the
du ectOTS of the . road , were aboard,' and
some villain had determined to throw the
whole train fronrthat bridgar" ' ,T
' ;The engineer, letting his train move. Jat
the ordinary speedy' suddenly discovered
that a rail . hia,d, , been displaced on . the
bridge, f He seemed to know instinctively
that the momentum was too great to save
the tvholo train; and he signalled the
brakes down and reversed his engine, ' to
stqp. if possible, the cars before reaching
the chasm. Then opening the throttle
valve, his engine sprang forward o vio
lently as to break the connection with the
traio, and dashed to the awful leap. x;The
bold man, as this was going on, ran out
of his window on the engine 'and -opened
the escape valve. " ,' ' ." " ' ' , ' "
,. Whilst standing there the engine -went
over with him, and,, marvelous, to relate,
he, falling under the huge weight, was
preserved from being crashed by the- en-
g!U5 bell at his side ::The train,for the
rescue of which" he bad exhibited such in
credible pluck, stopped jcrst sooh enough
to escape' the horrible leap kfter .,the7Cn

stood at ths head cf tha UinsLorough bar,
inNew. Hampshire, there was upon "the
docket a celebrated suit calk J ths Horse
Case." This action was brought by Smuh
and Jones, livery-stable keepers, -against
one White, to recover ths value of a pair
of horses alleged to have, been hilled by
the defendant while" convening, an insane
man to the asylum at Concord.: There'"
was plenty of proof that the horses died
soon after their arrival there ; but the de
fendant took the ground that they died of

and that a sufficient time had been allowed
them to travel that distance with ease.
