The Nowberuo Ti?ties, alluding to the
terrible locomotivo explosion near that
place on Wednesday moruing, says:
Alphous Fuison, engineer, wns instantly
killed, a Bmall piece of iron being driven
through his head, entering tho left ear
and coming out at the right; and his loft
leg blown off and his clothes all toru
into shreds. He was a native of Ra?
leigh, thirty-five yours of uge, and was
formerly employed on tho Southside
Road, of Virginia, and the Raleigh and
I Gaston Road, of this State, and had
been on the Atlautio and North Caroliua
Road about four years. Ho leaves a wife
and two ohildreu-a boy and girl, aged
respectively neveu and ton years.
Bridgers Arendell, conductor, lived a
few moments after the accident. His
clothing was completely torn off; he re?
ceived a bad cut in tho left side, near
tho short ribs; his face also was badly
out, and the whole .skin surface of bis
body was very badly scalded. The ex
plosion threw his body back a distance
of twenty feet, oomiug dowu ou tho rail?
road track aud ties, whioh must have
caused fearful internal injuries. Mr.
Arendcll was born in Morehead City,
where his family now reside. He was
fifty-two years of ago, and leaves a wife
and four children, tho youngest being
olevon months old. Simon Bonner, (co?
lored,) fireman, had his left leg blown
off below the knee, and was badly
scalded in his lower limbs. He was
taken to Kinston on the mail train for
medical attention, but died aboot noon.
Ho was thirty-six years of age, and
leaves a wife-and two children. Ho re?
sided in this city near the depot. Two
others were slightly injured.
OUR LAND OF LIBEOTY.-The Louis?
ville Courier-Journal announces this
outrage against free speech and freo
opinion perpetrated on United States
soldiers by their military despots, who
weakly imitate their.master:
Day before yesterday, a communica?
tion appeared in the Courier-Journal,
over the signatures of several members
of Company "I," Fourth United States ?
Infantry, now stationed at Lebanon, in
this State, expressing decided but gen?
tlemanly and soldierly convictions in
favor of the Liberal movement and
Horace Greeley for the Presidency, 'In
consequence, as we learn from the Le?
banon Standard, of yesterday, i/ie men so
offending were immediately placed in the
guard house hy their officers. We nek,
for information, if suoh expression of
political preference is forbidden by the
regulations of the army? And, if so, if
any action has'ever buen taken against
those officers or soldiers of the regular
army who met iu Pittsburg, the other
day, and solemnly entered their protest
aguinst the election of Mr. Greeley, and
their convictions that the election of
General Grant is necessary for the salva?
tion of tho country? Moreover, we
would ask-simply for information-if
several members of Company .'I,"
Fourth United States Infantry, who
published a communication in the Louis?
ville Commercial, several days since, tak?
ing strong ground in favor of the re?
election of General Grant, have known ;
the inside of tho guard house at Lebanon
post in consequence? * t
Of courso, no answer has boen given
these "impertinent" queries from a .
civilian, who; as well as a soldier, has no
i rights whioh an "offioer and a gentle?
man" is bound to respect or regard.

Bitters became the standard tonic of the
Western ;Homisphere. Boast's tho most
extravagant, fabrications the most pre?
posterous, cant the most sickening, have
I in turn been employed to bolster up the
worthless preparations that have from
time to time been introduced, ia the
hope of dividing the field with that
famous vegetable remedy. Signal failuro
has been the lot of each and all. The
reputation of tho Bitters as a preventive
.of epidemics, a stomachic, un in vigoran t.
a general restorative, and a specific for
indigestion, bilious affections, rheuma?
tism, nervous debility, constitutional
weakness, paroxysmal fevers, and all
complaints to whioh the more sensitive
sex are exclusively liable, is established
upon the sound basis of more than twen?
ty years' experience, and can no morobe

HonniBLS EXPERIMENTS-THE DEAD
BODY OP A CONDEMNED MUBDKHEB SUB?
JECTED TO THE ACTION OP ELECTRICITY.
Barclay, tho young man who was hanged
at Columbus, Ohio, on Friday last, for a
most brutal murder, consented that the
students of a medioal college in that
city could have his body for experi?
mental purposes, and ten minutes after
it was cut down, it was placed in a wagon
uud driven rapidly to tho college, whore
a powerful battery had been pluced in
position, for tho purpose of trying tho
effect of electricity as a medium to* re?
store life. At twenty-four minutes to 1
o'clock, tux students carried tho body
into tho anatomical leuturiug-room of
tho college, where were ussembled the
students uud ull tito prominent medical
gentlemen of the city. It wus then
tukcu from tho coffin tiud placed upon
the operating-table. Tho pupils of the
eyes were found to bo dilated and tho
faoe discolored. The body was stripped
of its clothing, uud at thirteeu minutes
to 1 o'clock, thirty-seven minutes after
death, the students began operations.
The electrical instr a meut used was ono
of the most powerful known, consisting
of six cups of Bunsen's battery attached
to Bitch's induotion coil of the largest
size. It was operated by Prof. Menden
hall, an eminent electrician, while Prof.
Wormly und Pro?s. Holdermau and Do
nig conducted the experiment.
Two ourreuts of eleotricity were used
.-ono placed at the lower extremity of
tho body, und the other drawn along tho
arm, neck, face and breast. The effect
was wonderful; tho eyes opened, tho face
drew up as if in pain, tho mouth jerked
to one side, tho arm raised as il to strike,
and tho ?Ht clenched. The limbs also
raised, and tho toas and fingers worked,
and once tho body almost turned to one
side. Thc arms wore next laid bare and
a current of electricity introduced. Tho
whole system seemed to reepond, and
tho movements of the body wera at times
violent. At four minutes to 2 o'clock,
the electricity was removed, and faint ac?
tions of the muscles could even thou bo
observed. The body was afterwards left
till ten minutes ofter 3, when the electri?
city was again applied and the muscles
of tho body still responded as before,
but with less force. The breast was tb?*ti
opened, and a current passed into lue
heart, but it gave no response It was
carried to tho bauds and feet, and ull re?
sponded as before. The heart was then
taken out and found hard as muscle and
full of blood, tho lungs not congested,
tho brain very healthy, free from any
oougpstion whatever. At eleven minutes ,
after 4 o'clock electricity was again ap?
plied, and a good response was had; at
eighteen minutes after 5 a faint response
was given, and at fifteen minutes to G,
five hours and thirty-five minutes after
death, the strongest current that could ?
be applied failed to move a muscio. The
experiment exhibition was then brought <
to a close, tho crowd ' dispersed, aud tho
mutilated body of Johu Barclay was re- \
placed in its coffin.

INTERESTING DECISION TO TOBACCO
DEALERS.-lt has boen decided by the
Office of Internal Bevenue, that, under
tho. law and regulations of tho Commis?
sioner, a tobacco or cigar manufacturer
may sell in bulk, without tho payment
of tax, refuse, scraps, clippings, etc.,
incidental to hts own business; but the
law does not - allow, and tho regulations
never contemplated, the general pur?
chase and sile of this class of tobacco in
bulk, and without tho payment of tax.
The sales must be limited to tobacco
scraps, waste, clippings, etc., which have
resulted from tho manufacturer's own
business, and sold as material to be fur?
ther manipulated, or manufactured, or
mixed with other manufactured tobacco.
Permits for tho salo of this class of to?
bacco to manufacturers of cigars or to?

A CHICAGO RETROSPECT-TUE WORK
OP A YEAR.-The Chicago pupers all give
au extended history of the city between
tho great fire and its lirst auuivtmary, |
October 7, 8 und 9. From the Inler
Ocean wo condense some of the leuding
The total cost of build i ogs which havo
bqen erected in tho burnt district is
315,558,200. Thirteen now hotels have
been completed, or are now in courso of
construction. Six Chicago elevators,
having un aggregate cupaoity of 2,475,
000 bushels of grain, und containing
1,559,395 bushels of grain, were de?
stroyed by tho fire. Four havo already
ariseu iu place of the old, and tho fifth
will bo ready by November 1. The
storage room in Chicago elevators in the
fall of 1871 was 11,375,000 busht*?.
Not only has this been regained, but it
has beoa absolutely increased within tho
twelve months by fully 1,000,000 bushels.
In dry goods, the number of houses is
about tue same as a year ago; the volume
of business is fully twenty to twenty-five
pur cent, larger. The decline in real
estate was not permanent. On tho con?
trary, estimating moderately, the in?
crease ia the gross valuation of tho 2,000
aoros barned over has beeu not less than
fifteen uer cent, in the past year. The
iuorease of the grain trade in the year
under review is upward of eleven per
cent. The total exceeds by 2G,OJO,000 ;
bushels tho receipts of 1870, and by
17,000,000 bushels tho receipts of 1808,
tho largest gruin year previous to the
fire. Out-running tho average of the
generul iucrouse, the receipts of corn'are
larger hy 10,000,000 bushels than in any
year beforo the fire, while oats, though
showing comparatively u sruall increase,
aro above the average of the eight years
previous to 1871. lu boots and shoes
and kindred branches the number of
large houses is about the Burne. The in?
crease ia tho business has beeu marked.
Eleven loading ?rms report sales of over
$10,000,000 since tho fire, and au ave?
rage income of twenty-five per cent.
That per centage is probably not far
from an average of tho whole trade.
Tho greater number of tho Chicago
banks resumed in the week following
thc fire, and have experienced no trou
blo in copiug with tho situation. On
tho contrary, they found the money of?
fered ou deposit amounted to more than
the money withdrawn. From the time
they opened to dato they have had more
money than before the fire.
TUE TRIUMPH OP FRAUD AND CORRUP?
TION.-Our State was the foons to which
were drawn all tho means and appliances
by which Radicalism has long main?
tained its sway-ull the machinery of
public corruption was pat in motion.
Hut. this was vastly augmented when tho
State and, us they were always insisting,
ibo national issues required success.
They used tho names us well ad the
purses of the wealthy Citizens, who were
content to barter good administration
md houest government in State and city
for a transitory triumph for their un?
worthy candidates. Tho Federal Go?
vernment made itself a party to thc con?
test, with all its resources, and President
Cirant, cheek by jowl with Simon Came?
ron, appeared on the scene, and, from
tho balcony of tho Continental Hotel,
made a speech for Uartranftl This im?
mense aggregate of political iuiluenco
ind corruption has VT ung from manipu?
lated ballot-boxes tho voto whioh we pre?
sent to-day. It doos not really repre?
sent tho moral or political judgment of
tho people of Pennsylvania on the true
issues ut' this campuigu, but we give it
A3 it emili's to us.
The most serious evils of this contest
fall upon our city. It is now in tho coa?
lition that New York would have beeu,
if Tweed, instead of being driven from
power, had been, with the help of tho
Federal Government, endorsed and ap?
plauded nnd installed in some high
jflice. The fresh sweep and scope which
that would have given to his power, is
