Another Fearful Disaster.
PITTSBURG, PA., June 23, 1872.- m
At noon to day a terrible accident oc- se
curred on the Pitttiburg, Washington
and Baltimore Railroad, about three
quarters of a mile this side of Connells
ville. A freight train going east was
running at full speed in order to reach di
the switch at Connellevillo before the ou
approach of the mail. At the point w
mentioned, at a sharp curve on the Ia
road, both trains came together so li:
suddenly that the engineers of the Ji
locomotives could hardly realize the o
fearful situation they were in, nor %v
had they time to make much effort to w
check the speed of their enginnas, af
which came stogether with a fea:ful tr
crash, that could be heard a long dis- bi
tance off fie
The trains came together, and in hi
an iostant the locomotives were a w
pe fect mass of twisted and broken w
iron, while the escaping steam hissing oM
from the boilers lent additional ter. it
rar to the scene. ra
The entire freight train was wreck. um
od, fragments of it being strewn on at
each aide of the track, while'the pat- ag
scnLzer train escaped with less injury. tc
Eight passengers were seriously iu- hi
jured. Some have broken legs, II
others broken arms and ribs,. and it of
is expected that a number of these ut
will die, while some nine oth'ers sus- W
tained inijuries of a less severe eharac- hl
The passenger train, with a number 3
of the wounded, arrived here at ten -
o'clock to-night. The collision of the 8~
engines, going at the speed both were
traveling, is said to have shook the
earth in the neighborhond like an
earthquake, and net one passenger on
the entire train could Utter a wvord m
for a full minute after the occurrence.
Lilability of Stockholders of Banks for ~
Ontstanding Bills lai Sooth Carolina. C
Judge Graham in the Court of tC
Common Plens in Charleston county, di
South Carolina, has given an elabor. tI
,ato decision as to the liability of ti
bank stock holders for outstanding A
hills. The particular bank concerned P
in the litiwation is the Farmers and Ci
E xchange 'Bank.V
The Judge decided that the failure ,
of the bank occurred in 1300. when
it suspended specie payment. No bill e4
iisued since then cau be recovered d
from the stockholders. All who dealt kt
with the bank after its suspension did ti
so at their ri,.k, and have no claim an t
the stockholders. All bills and notes P
issued before the suspension, the' t~
stockholders are liable for, to their
face value. The date of the bank
note has lit',Ae or no weight in deter
maining the date of its issue. The
Judge says the presumption of the
law is that Lthe blls~ outstanding have t
been issued since the suspension and ~
therefore the burden of proof is on the
bill holder who olaims an issue prior
to the suspension.

his hold for a moment, and before

A Watch I a aa's Body.
A few days since we published ani
extract from one of the Northern
papers In which it was stated that a
man was shot during the war and had
a portion of a silver penoil case and
gold pen driven into his body. A
portion of the latter has just worked
out through his neck. The case ap,
pears singular, and may be doubted
by some, but there Is on the records
of surgery a more singular case, and
one in which the recovery of the
patient may be deemed miraoulous.
It was that a gold watch being entire
ly shattered and driven into a man's
body through the ribs and lungs, and
of the pieces being afterwards ex
tracted or ejected and the recovery
of the patient. The gentleman who
survived this terrible injury is our
townsman R. Q. Drummond, Esq.,
and he is now alive, and except the
ditqualification from physically labor,
is apparently well. On the 5th of
January, 1841, he accidentally shot
himself in the left side with a gun
loaded with shot, the whole charge
striking a gold watch in his pocket
and driving it into his body through
the lungs, breaking in Its passage
several ribs. The watch was cf
course torn to pieces', and the frag
ments scattered through the body,
fortunately missing the heart. In
two weeks from the accident some of
the pieces were taken out, and at in.
tervals from that time for fifteen years
afterwards, when the last piece was 1
ejected from the mouth, after having
caused one hundred hemorrhages, by
a violent fit of coughing. In this
manner several pieces had previously
.been removed, and with the last Mr.
Drummond's health began to improve,
and he is now as we have stated, quite
well apparently. The wound in his
side has never healed ontirely up, and
there still remains an orifice of about
half an inch through which the breath
can be inhaled or expelled. A nun
ber of the fragments of the broken
watch have been shown us by a friend,
and are still mute witnesses of this
terrible accident.-NAorfulk Vigin .

The Colored'Race Deceived by their Lead.
The colored race need a second
emancipation. It is true they are no
longer in personal bondage, but no
ane can give an Impartial survey to the
3ondition of things in the Southern
Dommonwealths, but especially in this
State, without being convinced that
they are in a complete and absolute
oondition of political servitude. Thus
far they have been led like sheep to
the &laughter. They have fallen into
the hanfs of the unscrupulous and
adventurous, who have but little In
terest in the soil, and who have used
them as the mere instruments of their
:wn purposes. The trust and confi
lenee which they have placed in the
dventurer has been implicit. They
ave been so led, that every appeal in
raith and sincerity, and with the pet
Fcot guarantee of all their rights, to
%at with the white race of the soil,
ias thus far, with some excep.
ions, been unheeded and disregarded.
The mode in which they are thus
leceived can perhaps be no bettor
lustrated than the declarations made
coently to the colored men, especial.
y in the rural districts, that the ob.
eat of the Cincinnati platform is to
leprive the colored race of their
ights, and to abrogate the Constitu

We take the following from an ex.

how proftable the smaller industries

lands are cheap and the climate mild,
there is scarcely a limit to honest,

of articles that are not considered of
much commercial importance:
There is hardly an article of Amer.

note, that has grown so rapidly in
importance as the peanut. Instead of

amount to more than 150,000 bushels,

ly right, for the negro to oat at a
white man's table, sleep on his beds
and be entertained in his parlor.
The proprietor of the house, a man
of Southern principles and birth, who
believes in the superiority of the
white race, listened to the man in
silence, but evidently with heated in
cignation. The supper was over, and
the hour of retiring had arrived, when
the proprietor of the house took down
his doublo-barrel shotegun, which was
heavily loaded, went to the back door.
called a hired negro man a big, buck
follow, and then ushered him into the
bed-room of the Northern man and
told him there was his bed-fellow for
the night. The Northorn man stub
bornly refused ; the Southern man
insisted-told them both to turn in
for the night or he would kill them.
He told the Northern man he had
advocated negro social equality, now
he had to practice it-that the dose
he wanted prepared for others should
first be taken by himself, to see how
it operated. And at the muzzle of the
gun they slept together that night,
sweetly no doubt. Next morning the
Northerner rose and departed a sadder
and wiser man.
A Little Girl Walks Thirty-two Miles ia
Search of 1er Plother.
Yesterday a little girl, only eleven
years age, arrived in the city in
search of her mother, having walked
all the way from Shelbyville, a dis.
tanco of thirLy-two miles. Her story
is that she was forced to leave by the
brutal treatment of a man named
Goodman, with whom she had been
living. She says that three years
ago she was bound to Goodman by
her mother who was then living in
this city, Her daily duties were
burdensome, and sufficient to wear
out a person of much stronger frame
and make than this delicate child.
She was compelled to wash and iron,
besides doing household work, and in
addition was made to attend, feed and
milk thirteen cows. She bore up
under her enormous task until nature
rebelled and rendered her physically
incapable to longer prosecute her
labors ; and, informing her employee
that she was not strong enough to do
the. work, was brutally told that if
she could not do It to leave. She
then packed up her things and started
to this city, arriving yesterday as
above above stated. She went to
where her mother formerly lived, but
was unable to find her. She then
went from place to place, but could
nowhere hear of her mother, who had
doubtless left the city. Yesterday
afternoon, In her wanderings, she
met with charitable people, who
kindly administered to her wants
and gained her admittance to a ehari
