Bo many reports regarding the' minor de
tails of the sad railway1 accident of last
nif ht have been afloat, that One wonders at
inventive facolty which started soma of
them.- The accident was a ad one, bat not
bad aa was at first represented. The en
gineer and fireman ware brothers," who had
been upon the road together for a long
while.. They had, I understand, recently
secured a pleasant atome in this borough,
and life looked bright before them. But as
life they had been :eompanjon i, so in
death they were not divided.! they both
died of their irjuries in a short time after
explosion. The newsboy, Noble, waa
seriously injured that he caunot live, if,
indeed, he is living at this time. ' The bod
ies of the two Cooksons were enclosed in
eoffios at Jamestown and seotto Port Jervis,
Y., to-day, that being their former place
residence. ' . I J . ,
This is the first serious sccident that has
occurred upon this railway, save one
Salamanca a year or two since, where, as
this case, the engineer, fireman and
newsboy were tbe only .one seriously in
jured. Tbe road carried, in the year IMi,
317,271 passengers eastward, and 314,0V7
westward, over etota distance of 14,.151,21
manca; 30,38 from Corry ; : 53,048 from
Meadville; 23,249 from Franklin, end 41,
254 from Cleveland.

where he is living in the utmost seclusion,
scarcely answering the million of letters

but not inelegant cottage, the property of
Mrs. Cox, adjacent and belonging to which
are tome four acres of land, which he finds

The dolivery of tbe reu-aining Seven-
Thiryi bonds will be made by the 25th
inst. Some delay has been caused by the
exhaustion of the blank forms of the small
er denominations, six or seven millions of
which in amount have to be printed to
meet the demand. .Many unauthorised
statements have been rmde concerning the
intentions of the Secretary of the Treasury
with regard to the finances. These are
mere matters of conjecture. The Secretary
has no present inleution of assisting New
York or any other city upon that business,
nor dues he contemplate any immediate
change of policy, as tbe affaits of his De
partment are progressing comfortably.
Tbe proportion of blacks who visit the

WANT TO COME BACK.
NEW YORK August 13.
The Times' Baleigh correspondent, says
desire is nearly unanimous to be called
back, and it is generally manifested every,
where to resume the old custom of before
the war. A great deal of loyalty k talked
here. 1 Tbe people are sick and tired of
privation entailed by the blockade and
other . concomitants ol war, and will do
anything to remove the obstacles bow in
Wey. -:..:..'' ! ". ' ';
The latent love for the Union which
exhibited itself in opposition to Davis1
nwrpation by directions, reeding Federal
prisoner and in a hundred other ways
during the war is now untrameled and
shows itself in a manner satisfactory to
any conservative observer. ; .
A great majority of tbe inhabitants of
State entertain these sentiments, but
there is, and no one can deny it, a clique of
eoBoMred but sot subdued Japanese, who
are drones in our hire. They are of Wade
Hampton expatriation style, and consider
themselves high toned gentry of the South
and talk about Yankee mud-sills and colo
nization societies. .
. This class is, at most, too insignificant in
numbers to attract attention, and the
mistake made by some of the, leading men
here is the importance which' they: lend it
by violent denouncement of its members,
but for tbis it would die of inequality and
want of support. The slaves having been
made free, were it not for he continual
fuss made over it, with few exceptions, tbe
people would feel very sore-headed ..over
the lost of thetr (laves. '! . ,M;
Once in a while a man is found who says
he is glad that .they are free, but notwith
standing their reluctance in giving up their
property they submit gracefully and as
soon as it is understood that free labor is
more profitable .than slave they will one
and all be rejoiced. They are fact coming
to this conclusion, and I venture the asser-
etiat auutuur uaxvest will una iortn
Carolina all right on the negro. . A radical
change cannot be expected in , one day and
this sudden abolition of ths customs of gen
erations has produced ii shock from which
it will take time to recover.
As an instance of the increase of kindly
feeling towards tbe freedmen, Colonel
"Whittlesey, Superintendent for this State
of General Howard's- Bureau, received ap
plications from several different parti
citizens of the State -for assistance in
securing the labor of several hundred hard
workmen for farms and plantations in
Edgerton and other counties. , The gentle
men interested in these movement are
shrewd, far-seeing business men, who ap
preciate the fact that the labor of the freed
men can be obtained very .cheap, and,
owing to the impoveiished condition of the
8tale, agricultural products are very valu
able. It is understood they intend in
augurating the ten-hour system of labor,
and by careful discipline eradicate the
slot hfulnees engendered in the freedmen by
THE PRESIDENT'S PRIVATE SECRETARY.
The Times' Washington special says .- It
has been circulated, in the West that E.
H. East, a prominent lawyer of Tennessee,
was about lo proceed to Washington for
the purpose of accepting the poet of Con-
fi Jential Secretary to President Johnson.
Mr. East was asked by the President to at'
sumo those relations with him, and would
have done so but for tbe sacrifice it would
entail of a large and lucrative practice.
He has not yet positively declined, but it is
understood that the President, in view of
the circumstances, will not insist on the
appointment. It was not designed, had he
came here, to interfere with, tbe duties now
performed by the President's Private Sec
retary, Col. Browning." ' .

Up to "Wednesday, the 2lthe signals
were singularly diatiuct. The Great East
ern was nearly two-thirds of tbe way to
Newfoundland. It Was at this time that
signals to Valentin became, unintelligible,
and gradually closed. , ! "
The Times infers that the disaster oc
curred after the cable bad left the vessel,
from the fact that those. on board were sig
naling as usual when their messages be
came unintelligible. -
The work of repairing could, not be ac
complished at the rate of more than one
quarter of a mile per hour, which a head
sea would check. For this, tbe 'Great
Eastern amply provided, the has several
buoys on board, equal' altogether to a
weight of fifty tons, and. has at least five
miles of powerful wire buoy rope which
can support all that the buoys themselves
can float Tbis effirt to buoy, however,
will not be resorted to till the last extrem
ity of imagined danger and impracticabil
ity of finding the cablfl again. , . ' t
The Times in conclusion 'cays: If the
Great Eutern is making successful in haul
ing in and repair the cable a renewal of the
signal may be locked for. within a couple
days If, on the eentrary, that time
should have passed without the oable giv
ing any signs of life, the cause may be con
sidered hopeless, as far as regards success
