Liout Rail Paths. A writer in the
Maine Fanner suggests' tho idea in con
nection irilh plank roads to build light
rail paths for hand-ears ; and says it would
be as little labor to get into a hand-car and
roll one's self two miles to a village, or u
mill, as to harness a-horse into a carriace,
drive him out and back, and take care ofi
Raimioad Accident. Wonderful
Accident. About half past eleven
o'clock, Thursday night, as the New
York train via New Haven was ap
proaching this city, nnd when halfway
between Newton Corner nud Brighton
going at tlie rate of twenty-five miles
an hour, tlic engineer suddenly discov
ered a stone weighing, it i3 said, over
a ton, that had rolled down from the
hank, which is about thirty feet high
at this sot, and was lying upon the
track. There being a curve at this
point, tho train was almost upon the
stone, before it was creeived, and
nothing could be done to prevent a col
lision, which in nn imtant afterwards
, took place. The engineer let off the
steam, but had not time to reverse the
engine. After the collision, the train
went the distance of its length before
the motion 6toppcd. The forward
wheels of the engine were thrown off

Since tny hut letter, every public c
cent touching the California question
has set ved to deepen the conviction
that the original policy of the Presi
dent is the best one. Having been on
a tiart of the ground in person hav
ing made himself familiar with the
facts of the case tho President of the
whole country and not of a part nc
tuated bv a consistent nnd patriotic spir
it, which a service of forty years in ihe
service of the j eo, Ic, North and South
has tempered and iiutructcdicn. Tai
lor is inst the man to siiitjicst a mctii
od for adjusting existing difficulties, in
a manner at ouce satisfactory and per
manent. It is deeply regrcttoil that the sound
and calm advice contained in the Prcs
ident's California Message, was not
more generally adopted and earnestly
urged by his friends. This wns ail
that was wanted to givo it success long
ere this. J he admission of California
as a peparate and distinct mca jure, and
leaving the T rritories to come in ns
their own j cople should direct, is the
only feasible, constitutional, republican
measure; and it is surprising that such
a body as the American Congress can
long hesitate iu adopting it.
This is compromise enough ; and the
lovers of the Union want no other.
Mr. Webster has endorsed it, and Mr.
inthrop has done the same. It ought
not to offend the South and it should
satisfy tho North. Why, then, does
it not prevail ? Let the people see to
it. Jiie powers ana the responsibility
rest with them.
Mr. Wiuthrop. I understand, is a
bout to favor the country with anothei
speech, in the House ; if he does it
will be a great ouo, every way worthy
of the country and tho man. His ef
fort repudiating certain 'entangling al-
ltn.,.l I... I I 1
lianccs' was somewhat local and
tionn! in its character ; but he now has
an opportunity raroly enjoyed by few
public men, and he will not fail to im
Mr. Webster has not yet left for the
North. President Taylor .will un
