sued, and out gushed the foaming 'Heidttck."
' The "Native Catawba" was most excellent
'and especially appropriate for drinking on the
Fourth of July. ' Calling together a frw
friends, we had a celebration on a small scale,
at which "Native Cobblers" and good eheer
predominated, and sentiments were offered
- complimentary to all hands of that popular
'Re&taraut, from whenoe came one of the
prominent sources of pleasure. It was hoped
that "Dismiss' Vines might yield more grapes
and the grapes more juice than ever," and
that "Henry," "Sam" and 'Et," mitht live
to a green old age, and after .'shuffling off
thie mortal coil," be conveyed orer the river
tyx to a land where native wine cobblers
grew -ready made, and "where the wicked
' cease from troubling and the wenrv are at

tured by Mr. F. Djserexs is the best we have
-ever mtpected. and our readers who desire ''a
lawful, healthy- and pleasant beverage, can
find all that in the Native Wine of which we

K?We notice considerable competition bas
sprung up between certain roads in the West,
connecting with New York, Philadelphia,
Baltimore and oilier eastern cities. Tbe in
ducements over the different routes held out
to pnssengers are various. We have within
the last two months passed over a considera
ble portion of both routes, and are compelled
to express our preference for the Little Miami
Railroad, via Cincinnati, Xenia, Columbus,
Crestline and the Ohio and Pennsylvania
Railroad to Pittxburg. For salety, accommo
dation and beaut J of scenery.this route is unsur
passed Ly any over which we Jiave ever traw
tied. We are no "jlead head" upon any of
these roads, but express the unbiassed con
viction of our mind, from a trip both ways.
The excellent running ordea iu which the
Little Miami Railroad is always kept, the
kindness and accommodation of the Conduc
tors, and the faithful, watchful attention of
Brakeincn and all other attaches of a train,
make a trip over it vety pleasmt. Many of
our Merchants and citizens will be visiting
the East in a short time, and we desire to post
them as to the best route. Every one who has
traveled both ways, so far as we have learned,
finve a preference forthe Little Miami Rail
road, through by daylight, in the shortest pos
sible time, and (are as low as by any other
route.1' We have on several previous occa
sions spoken of (be 'superiority of this thor
oughfare, and now, but reiterate previously
formed opinions, confirmed by actual experi
ence. . . ., 1 . ,

Tornado at Dayton—Building blown down—
Man Killed by Lightning—Cornfield Prostrated.
On Saturday a heavy slorm of wind and rain
passed over Dayton doing considerable dam
age in the way of destroying awnings, tearing
off window shutters, ripping up shingles and
overthrowing chimneys. Hut the principle
item of destruction of property was the re
prostration of the Gorman building and the
re-crushing of the Methodist Church. This
Gorman building, it will be remembered, fell
down' some time ego, killing two p rsons,
wounding several others and smashing the
thurch along side. j
ltwas being rebuilt, and was nearly finished,
when yesterday the storm tumbled it into a
mass of r tins. Very fortunately.nene was in
jured by the catastrophe oSaturday. '
The charch wa much damaged. It was
just paired from the effects of the former
calamity, and -tolieious strvice' was to have
been held in it Sunday. At the mdrnent of
the cash, painter was putting on the "fin
ishing toucii" .inside; the church, anrj barely
managed to escape the1 mass of bricks which
thundered through the roof, and. covered the
floor with rubbish to the depth of several feel.
During the sto m a man named Pi-ink,
while (helicrint himself under a tree near the
river below town, where he bad been, fishing,
was inscaiilly killed by flash of lightning.;
A few. miles this side of Dayt -n, a "streak
of wind' completely prostrated the cornfields
in its course, and being followed by a heavy
urn m rain, the torn was almost Bunea. . .
In compliance with a request, and a previ
ously expressed determination, we present our
readers with the proceedings of what tie
"Register" styles "Our Coaventioa called
under the pretext of opposition to the "New
Briska" bill, but for tbe orteusible purpose

Now, behold how how tbe matter was arrang

upon to reflect the will of people whose opin

about, and cared less, so that they were suc
cessful in their schemes. But who were se
lected thus to reflect the wishes of, those
townships who refused to enter into the un
holy alliauce and would not appoint delegates
to "Our Convention ?" Member of the Clique
the very men who had determined in secret
conclave to eellout the whig party of the coun
ty, in order to accomplish their present and
future schemes. Look at them ! Are they
not office eeeberi and aire leorlceri ? Can such
an abominable scheme of iniquity succeed f
We may perhaps find it necessary to unmask
Individually and particularly, each one of these
representatives, and tell the people of the
county what inducements and hope3 led him
to assume so much responsibility. If the fact,
from these proceedings is not apparent, that
the whole thing is a scheme of the Clique and
wire workers in Eaton, we will endeavor to
elucidate and make it plain. (pWe notice
the name of John V. CAiiratxi. among the list
of Vice Presidents, and would here remark,
on our own responsibility, that while we were
at the Convention, neither Mr. Campbell, nor
Wiluau J, Gimiore, who is appoiuieda del

DREADFUL RAILROAD ACCIDENT.
DREADFUL RAILROAD ACCIDENT. A WFUL CRASH ON THE
GREAT LOSS OF LIFE!
MANY WOUNDED, &C., &C.
One of the most appalling accidents which
ever occurred in our midst, happened yester
day afternoon, near the city, on :he Baltimore
and f usquelianna Railroad.
Early yesterday morn ng t large number of
excursionists repaired to Rider's Grove, 9 miles
out on the railroad, to spend the day. The
accident occurred about ope mile this side of
the grove, brtween the upward train for
York and one of those trains containing a
portion of the excursionists, on their way to
the city. . , . .
The soene of the' accident was a curve of
the load about midway between the Relay
House and Rider's Grove.
Three trains, full of ladies and gentlemen,
with children, k ft I he city during the day, to
pnrticipate iu the celebration. Keturuing.one
of the trains left for Baltimore at two o'clock,
another started at rive, and the third, with
which the accident occurred, at about fil'teeu
At 25 mi miles past 4 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon the regular train for York left Calvert
Station, consisting of four passenger car and
a baggage car all with the exception of the
last car were filled with passengers. Mr.
William Scott was conductor, accompanied by
Mr. Hollins, and other officers of the ro,d, who
were repairing to Rider's Grove to osi.it 111 the
arrangements for the safe return of the- excur
On arriving at the Relay House, the New
York train, according to orders, proceeded to
iy oil on the Uretn bprmg switch, where the
instructions were that it should wait until the
excursion train or trains passed. The express
train from New York, due early in the day,
which had been thrown out of time, was
waiting at liie Relay, and after it had passed
down toward Baltimore, we walled for one
excursion train, of about sixteen cars, crowded
to excess, which passed without giving any
information to ihe 0 fiuuctor that two other
trains were coming, which uufortunate'y proved
tr be tha case. . .- .
The road being now supposed to be-clear,
the York train again took the main track, and
proceeded on, and had scarcely got full under
way, when, about thiee-quarters of a mile
from the Relay, and about a mi e from Rider's,
a terrible crash,-accoinp-nied by a rush of
steam, brought all who were uninjured to theii
feet, and on escapiug from the wrecked cars,
a most heart-rendiiiL' scene presented itself.
that it were impossible' to describe in all its
.horrors. . , , . ,
The locomotive ailiched to the excursion
train, was behind, pushing ;.! cars; that at
uched to the other traiu, was in fiont, and lit
erally plowed its way into the cars, loaded
with passengers, in front. .
. About half a dozen cars were crushed '.and
shivered to atoms, and a large number of their
unhappy inmates either killed upon the spot
or dreadfully injured. The scene is described
ss harrowing to the last degree. Several of
th se killed and wounded were so caught in
th wreck of the broken cars, that they could
not oe released lor a considerable time.
oiiu crow-uara were urouKni into reoui-
sition, and those aliva and unhurt made super
human effort foe thait jvlief,.. The, etf Jor
water Iron the sufferers was continual, and
several persons were engaged constantly in
supplying them. It wa no't, however,, until
the locomotive attached to the excursion train
had been attached to the enroled mass, that
the ueaa and wounded were got f ut.
A large number of those wlft-escapcd walk
ed to town, white others came, in whatever
vehicle could be obtained.
The centre of the foremost car was filled
with the dead, dying and wbunied, all wedded
together in one mass with the fragments of the
car and the seats, to coVnpact tliat it required
half hour's time and the use of axea to res
cue the wounded. A number of females and
children were taken out from among the dead
acarcely injured, whilst through the door of
the car could be seen the protruding limbs of
some who hid been instantly struck dead. '
Among the dead in the center of this car
was Mrs. Robinson, named in the list below,
young and beautiful woman, and Henry
Clay Jeffers, tbe son, of Ma ison J e tiers, a
bright and beautiful boy, the bodies of whom
were so wedged among the fragments of the
two cars, which had been run through each
other like telescope, that it was impossible to
extricate them, without hauliiie off the frag
ments of the upper car by the locomotive,
which was also necessary to release the large
number of .unfortunate creatures who still ru
ms ined wedged between the forward cars,
some still alive and others dead. In removing
the cars Mrs. Robinson's body was literally
torn to pieces, but in thee IT rt to recover
those in whom life still remained it became
necessary to disregard the dead. .
On all Ihe platforms of the wrecked cars
the destruction of life and limbs was immense,
and the cars beiug so closely wedged together
as utterly impossible for mare than an hour
to relieve any, of them, although the screams
of the sufferers caused the most superhuman
exertions for their succor.
On the platform at the head of the Excur
sion train four men weie caught by the fore
part of the engine, two of them were instant
ly killed, and the other two were fast by their
limbs, Buffering the most excruciating
and almost roasted by the smokepipe of the
locomotive. They both fainted fr m exhaus
tion before they could be rescued, requiring
more than an hour of incessant labor, and one
of them subsequently died.
Two or three were instantly killed fclso ori
the front platform of the York train, one of
whom waa Benjamin Merryman, the baggage
master, who met death, standing manfully dt
bis postal bis breuk, endeavoring to check the
The accident occurreS at 20 minutes past 6
o'clock, and it was half-past 7 o'clock, before
the last body was taken from the wreck. .
The bodies of the dead were all placed in
one car, and piled up one upon another, pre
atnting a ghastly spectacle. Most of them bad
been instantly killed by the crash, soma or
them being horribly crushed and mutilated in
manner to sicken the beholder of the spec
tacle. The wounded were made as easy as
possible, a nd, in most of the coses, their friends
were at. the depot, and bad lhea immediately

have been the principleaclor in thv establish

to perform a part,and put on his cititen.s dress
be lore leaving the building. He discovered,
w hen he reached the street, that he had left
his watch in bis dressing room, and, returning
tor it, was seen no more alive. Tha Fhiladel-
phia Bulletin says : ..
1 1 e friends of the missing actor were fear
ful that he had perished in the flames, and as
soon the ruins had become sufficiently col--
ed, commenced seare mg for him. After a
careful search, the trunk, the lower prt of 1
the right leg and foot, and the left foot, were
found. A portion of the heart was also dis
covered, all horribly burned and disfigured.
The head, arms, and the greater part of the
lees, were consumed. Thare were but a few
shreds of clothing lef. unconsumed, and there
was nothing but the circumstances and the
position in which rendered their identification
certain. The ghastly relics were placed in a
box, and carried by the Marshal's police lo
the station house in Adelphi street, the broth-
er actors of the feceased fallowing in mourn- .
ful procession several of them crying bitterly.
