bern Me, is the great! "bugbear" of
-ubli 0penentien at thia moment. Some
'egin tothin]' the g overnment h'as i'n
telephant," 9 b iwe think the government
can do more *ith the great responsibility
than the me.n in the fable. We can
make somethfing out of it. The negroes
will have to f pay taxes on themselves
and on all tlat they get. They greatly
desire to renain'at their old homes, and
work even biarde'r than over for their
eantaijianie. This, we leapn, without
solicitation; from themselves. When
peace is restored and their freedom
assured, th-b colored people will gladly
return to tlieir old homes and to their
avocations, and,' even among the loh
established. and educated in our Norther
citieg, we: hear that many are now
looking forward eagerly to the day whdn
they nay return to a. more congenial
climate and a familiar country.

We attacked the enemy--about eight
hundred strong-this evening at three
o'clock, an d drove him in confusion eight
miles, killing 'and wounding about thirty
and capturing eighty prisoners, with
many arms and accoutrements. Owing
to 1he scattered condition of the men, a
halt was ordered. Captain Carrington's
command coming up, he was again Att
tacked and driven, within one mile of
Brazos, when darkness put an end to the
psrsuit. Had not our artillery horses
broken down, we would, doubtless, have
calured the3 whole command.

TY.-Ole 01 those ,accidents which, in
ordinary times, would have spread- un.
utterabl0 horror through our community,
and *hieh, despite the prevailing ex.
citemen created a deep sensation, oc
curred at the Railroad station at this
place on Monday morning the 17th of
April. It.appears that, in anticipation
of the removal of all army atores farth.
er west a quantity 9f ailrmunition in
boxes had been deposited upon the plat.
form of the. depot to await shipment.
For want of transportation or other
causes, the boxes were not shipped, and
to insre their want of value to the ap
proaching ene'my, they. wore knocked to
pieces, and the contents consisting of
shell, grape and canister, were thrown
upon the platform. No one seemed to
have special charge, and everything was
left to the mercy of the idle and the mis.
chievous; the cartridges were- cut off
aond the powder scattered, to be gather
ed up as chance or choice might direct.
About eleven o'clock upon that' fatal
morning Wilson Gordon, a son of. Mr.
Brown Gordon, procured a coal of fire
from an engino then standing upon the
track, with which to fire a small train he
had.prmviously made. A son of Calvin
Bishop, a lad of thirteen, was. scraping
up some loose powder. John' Vrancis
Cameron, only son of John D. C'eron,
nearly thirteen years bf age, 'had just
reached the depot, having left home but
a brief haf hour previdusy on his way
to town. Gordon in passing to his train
diopped a spark upon the powder over
which Bishop was stooping, and who
was by the explosion blown into the air.
The flames cominunicated almost in
stantly to the shells, and at once a num
bet were instantly exploded, instantly
killing the son of- Mr.- Cameron, and hor. 1
ribly mutilating the son of Mr. Gordon, I
who, as well as the' son of Mr. Bishop,
died that night.-Hillsboro' Ilecorder.
A ToucHINq INCIDFNT.-Some gen.
tlemen passing through the beautiful
village of Renton, in the vale of Leven
Dumbert-onshire, about nine o'clock at
night, a few days ago, had their atten.
Lion directed to a dark object in the
church-yard. On going to ascertahi
what it was, they fouad a boy, of tender
years, lying flat on his'fact, and appat.'
antly sound asleep, over a newly -made
grave. Thinking this rot a .very safe'
d for him,' they shook him up and ask- o
d him how' he came to be there? He
;aid he-was afraid to' go home, as his
iister, with whom he residdd, had threat.
fned to beat- him. 'And where does
rour ilster live?' asked one of the par..
y. 'In Dumbarton,' was the. wer.
