objection to any one making the experiment
at Anderson or elsewhere. The concurrent
testimony of other publishers in the .State in
to the same effcct, anil has been expressed in
noticing this enterprise. The language used
by lis docs not admit of the construction

his deduction,' and inferences are incorrcctly
drawn. Nothing but tho kindest feelings,
as then expressed, prompted us in what '
we said. According to a just and propor con !
siruction ot our language. tli?? publisher is
included with those " full of money and

unkind to him nnd unjust to us. With this

>Senaton*hip, wo nro pleased to hoc that of our
distinguished fcllow-citi/.on, Ex>Qov. John
]j. Manning, presented by the prcsa in nearly
overy quarter of our State. We have
hitherto forebore presenting his name from
motives of delicaey, preferring that his
nomination should i>imio fmm nilmru I
citizens of his native District, with whoso
sentiments of admiration for his high character
and distinguished talents arc mingled
tho warm feelings of personal friendship I
We cordially endorse all that the press
in other quarters has said of his fitness for
the high and responsible oflico for which
his namo has boon brought forward. He
is no new or untried man, nor arc bis po
lineal views a mutter of eonjeeturo. During
the whole of liia political life, his course
has hecu one of dignified consistency, fioni
which ho has not tin ned aside to court popular
favor, or to avail himself of the advantages
of being borne onward by the current
of an excited public sentiment. Like a
wise and firm man, he withstood the current
of public opinion, when be believed its
energies were wasting themselves in vain, I
and by his honest and manly course won
for himself the respect, and esteem even of
those who differed from him the most widely.
JI is zeal for tho material progress and i
advancement of lijs native State, lias been
attested by acts of princely muitilicenco,
which have not only aHorded direct, advantages
to the needy, hut have by their force
of example stimulated others to aid in the
liable work. The system of scholarships,
which he inaugurated in our College, points
to him as a public benefactor, mindful, oven
in private life, of the best interests of his
Wi: reorard bis eleoflnn fn flio vnennt
Senator.ship as peculiarly desirable at (lie
present juncture. lie is one of the most
consistent as well as the most fitting exponents
of the present policy of the State.?
All our hopes now depend upon the formation
of a strong Southern .party, anil the
concentration of public sentiment at " lie
South, that we may be prepared to present
an unbroken front to our enemies.
The time is approaching when, without
union of sentiment and action throughout
nio ouuin, wo snail r>e awe neither to defotid
ourselves in the I'nion, nor to establish
for ourselves an independent national
existence. Throughout t!.?i South nnd
West, the name of (Jovernor Manning is a
h usehold word. I le possesses a social and
a political influence throughout the glayeholding
States which no other man among
us can claim. He is able to exert a greater
influence in harmonizing Southern sentiment,
and in conducing to unity of action,
than any of our politicians. lie is intense?
lv Southern in all bin sentiments anil vipwh
and has more than oiicc turned nway from
high and fluttering federal honors which
were pressed upon his acceptance, that lie
might devote himself entirely to the service

Pins and Nkkdlks.?The manufacture
of tho indispensiblc little pin was conunenccd
in the United States between 1812 and
1820, since which time the business has
extended greatly, and several patents for
tlio manufacture of pins have been taken
out. The manufacture in Kngland and
other parts of Europo is couduotcd upon
improvomonts mndo here. Notwithstanding
tlio- extent of our own production, tho
United States imported in 1850 pins to the
value of $40,265, while in tho nauio year
thoro were imported iuto this country needles
to the Amount of $240,060. NecdScfl

Nk\v Youk, Sept. 7.?A collision occurred,
this morning, on tho Fishkill nnd
Hudson River Railroad, between a freijrht

with pnHscuffers, went down with tho
bridge. A train hn? been dispatchod to
the scene of the accident, and further particulars
will bo received when it returns.
PlTTSUinui, Sept. 11.?The reports relative
to the railroad accident, near Stcubenville,
have been greatly exaggerated.
j\ ucsjmtcn irom ttie flocrctary ot the
road flays that the brtdgo broke near the
(lift tunnel nnd will be repaired for the paf$sagj
of trains to day. All the passengers
were sent off this morning except one ntnn
who had both logs broken. Conductor
Moom y received n severe cut on the bend;
the baggage master was slightly hurt;
Jnmcs Fleming, engineer off duty, was badly
hurt. Other passengers were slightly
uijnrcu, uui uble to leave.
Wednesday evening last nn incident
occurred at an election meeting in Tilsenburtr,
which, we regret to say, has been attended
with fatal results. It appears, from
the details that have reached u.s, that tho
meeting wn? called by the friends of Dr.
Connor, and that, just as Mr. Foley was
about retiring, after occupying the attention
of the audience fur kcv.mmiI limiru flm
floor in the upper part of tlio room suddenly
gave way, carrying with it about one hundred
and fifty people.
The floor underneath proved, itself unequal
to withstand so great and sudden 11
weight, and that, too, instantly gave way,
precipitating the unfortunate sufferers into
the room below, making n total fall of soino
twenty-four feet. The sei ne that ensued
it is impossible to describe. A mass of human
beings in eminent danger of smotheritify

any assistance, lay in darkness,
groaning under bruises and broken limbs,
and all that bad not boconic insensible front
the fall madly endeavoring to extricate themselves.
The news of the calamity spread like
wildfire, and in a few minutes wives nnd
sinters wore frantically calling on husbands
and brothers who were known to be among
the suttorers. Aid was not long in arriving
and tho wllolc community turned out with
n speed nnd n zeal worthy of all commendation.
Mr. Smith, thelteevo of Dereham
and Mr. Van Norninu were honorably conspicuous
for tlie energy they manifested on
the occasion, although scores of others emulated
them in the good work.
The result of these labors of mercy was
the early extrication of all the Millererx,
many of whom were taken out with no oth
or injury than n severe fright, nud a few
unimpurtant bruise*. Others, however,
perhaps to the number of nearly thirty,
were very severely contused?some, indeed
it is feared, fatally. It is our painful duty
to add that, in the ease of one person, when
taken out, life was found to be quWecxtinct.
Tho person whose earthly eareer has been
thus suddenly closed was Mr. Hopkins, a
