-?EW HAVEN*, August 15.--A fright?
ful railroad disaster t?ia morning, on
the Housatdbic River Railroad
The morning freight train, going
up the -fiTousatonic Railroad, became
disabled several miles above Bridge?
port, and the 10.30 tr.iin following,
found it on thc track, and hitched on
an<l backed towards Bridgeport with
it- , .
. A new engine was oiit for trial on
the track,-and coining up about three
miles above Bridgeport, ran into the
rear of th? passenger train.'
The locomotive struck the hind car,
and split it in two, passing direetly
through, nnd the boiler burst just as
it reached the second cur from the
rear, making awful havoc;.
Seven were killed outright, and
eh;yen were terribly mangled and
scalded. President Charles Hunt, of
the Housatouic Road, was on board.
Everything is now being done for the
relief of the passengers.

mn PRESIDENT'S POLICY AND EIS CABI?
Publications have recently been

l?re'-i--" ul> M.: diff?rences of opiiiicn
between the President and his Cabinet
v.-ith ree*?rd to Hie nolw-y proper to be
pursued In rt;storiug the S?thern States
to their former relations to the Union,
. and particularly involving the question
of iio^rti suifiagf- in the work of re

But it may be R.rid with ron?* dence,
~ s an answer to many of tlie specula
< lions-, that there, is not now, nor is it
behoved that there witt be, any sub
stantial or material di lu >i?*nce betweei:
' the President and his Cabinet witt
regard t > the restoration ot thc South
ern Stages. One of the reusonfi foi
this assertion is the fact that all tin
proclamations appointing the Provi

same words, founded on the Tonnes
si-e arrangement, and maturely eon
sider.-tl by the President, and?approv
cd of by the Cabinet, snowing a care
fully considered plan, the amnesty
.proclamation being in accord with tha
document. The President, it is known
from the representation of his intim?t
friends, is determined to pursue sub
Stantially the reconstruction pro

.sonable evidence from thc South tha
) it will be successful. Many of th
accounts from that section are exag

favorable couditioii of public opinioi
1 . THE TRIAL OF JEFF. DAVIS.
As the result of can fal inquiry, it i
believed that there is an unwillingnet
on the part of a portion of the Cab
net to have Jefferson Davis tried fe
treason, while there is reason for as?
serting that the President is persi:
tent in having him brought before
civil tribunal. Chief Justice Chase
expected to arrive lie re in the co ur?
of a fow days for consultation with tl
President as to the time, the mann'
? ?jul the place which shall be designa
.ed. The ablest couifttel in the Unitt
i .States aro also being consulted upc
[ the subject. There is a fixed d?terra
nation on tiie part of the Execnti
Ithat there shall be au immediate ai
fair trial by a jury of tiie country f.
high treason. It may, in addition
this, IM? confidently asserted that tl
?President has-determined, as soon
practicable, to withdraw the ord?

?fl habeas corpus and to dispense wi
Ford's Theatre is being convert
into fire proof as rapifily as an effaeti
corpa of. mechanics eau make it. Gal
"leiws, .boxes and stage paraphernalia
are in . process of demolition. ' The
do?r; furniture and partitions of the
boo; occupied by Mr. l?fhcoln on the
terrible eve of the assassination, have
been carefully removed and deposited
Under lock and key. Notwithstanding
that every object intimately connected
with tho fearful tragedy han been
taken in charge by the Government,
rjelic-huntors continue ns numerous as
before, and content themselves-with
odds and ends 'ol' tinsel and bits of
gilding which strew the floor of the
edifice while the process of rejuvena?
tion goes forward. Tho contract made
with Mr. Ford included everything in
the building, save a lev articles of
personal property, so that all its ap?
purtenances are disposed of as thc
authorities think best. As has been
before stated, thc remodelled structure
will be used for the deposit of the
archives of the late Southern Con- j
fedoracy and other mementoes of the
TITE TRIAL, OF winz.
The trial of Captain Wirz was to j
have commenced to-day, but has been
further' postponed until to-morrow. J
This morning, several Govern ment
j witnesses were in attendance andi
there are others in the city who can at?
any moment be summoned. The ac?
cused has for counsel Judge Hughes, j
Gen. J. W. Denver, and Messrs. Peck
and Schade. Thc prisoner is a Swiss
by birth. When the United States
forces captured New Orleans, he de?
serted his plantation and negroes in !
Louisiana, and, with his wife and j
turee children, went to Vicksburg, j
In 18G3, the rebel government sent |
I niue to Europe as a military commis- j
siouer. He remained there eight I
I months, when, returning to Ilud?- j
mond by ruiniing jthe Wilmington ?
I blockade, he was appointed an assist- i
uni adjutant-general, with the rank of !
captain, and assigned to the command j
