1 COn Thnrsday last, the morning train from
Cincinnati,, on the Eaton and Richmond rail
way, three miles from Richmond, was thrown
'from the tratk by runnfng over cow. Two
cars ran do'wij a steep embankment and were
matted to pieces. The 'Route Agent, John
W. Kec.n.i, Esq.', was severely injured. The
Express Messengr, Mr. Loci, wai badly in
jured by an iron safe falling upon him, and it
.was,tbought for soma days thai he could not
possibly recover. We are glad to learn hew
.vet that both Mr. K- and Mr. L. are in a fair

Sllrm, visited the Miami a day or two sinpe
on a Fishing excursion, and returned on Mon
day morning with: a fine lot of choice fish,
part of which were presented to us, for which
they have r thinks. That excursion, we
are told, was full of fun and incident, but a
dividing the tale would only spoil the story,
' we mnst leave our readers in the dark as to
the principal feats and actors. The boys look
in if they had enjoyed themselves, and we
hbpe they may live to particpate in the pleas-
7'.ure of many aimilor excursions.
! (G0ur thanks are due E. W, Woodward,
'Esq., the efficient and gentlemanly superin
tendent of the Cincinnati, Wilmington and
Zacesville Railroad, for "a Pant" over that
"road. We have red backs, Hack backs and
yalltr backs, bur, this is a while back, some-
' thing like a "sheep aim" and such an one as it
does a man good to see. The first favorable
opportunity, we shall take a trip over the
joad, and hope to have the company of
"Jemis," for without him, a ride over that
road, would be no ride at all. The Cincinna-

tyTbe expressed indignation of the honest
.portion of the Whig party, compelled the
"Register" to change hands, in t!ie hope that
a better condition of affairs would be brought
about, but in the transit, bad was succeeded
by worse, and rainy of the Whigs in the eoun-
ty openiy express their disappointment at the
- course pursued by the organ, its Abolition Ed
' -itorand the clique, who manage the whole
concern. The people expected the "Regis
ter" to take a bold stand and high ground in
favor of whig principles, instead of meeting
the expectations of the whigs of the county,
we find lhe editor, proprietor and clique con
niving to secure for especial favorites the Free
Soil vote of the county, at the sacrifice of
.principle. Whether success will crown theit
x efforts remains to be seen. ' Of one thing, how--ever,
we are prettv certain, there are scores
of whigs in the county who never will endorse
the "bargain imitah." ,
BJrri'j.aB been suggested that a better name
for thesaim party, would be the "Confus

of the most incongruous and antagonistic ele
.menta, the "shreds and paleUeo" of all other
parlies, whose sole adhesie principle is the
remote proseet of office. Should any disap
pointment ensue, which is most likely, the
acat'.erment will be something like the can! as-
ionthat took place when the last brick"

' p"Jiwlead of arguing, or offering for argu
ment whig principles, or denying tLe chargea
of bargain aud sale with the Free Boilers,
management of a clique, A;c., the imported
Abolition editor of the "Fatjn Weakly Regis
ter," employs bis time, space and transcend
ent talents, in abortive attempts at wit, and
personal attacks of a most childish and puny
character. If ThriD Johnsos imagines such
things w ill b received as arguments by the
people of Preble county, let him at once be
undeceived. The time when such effotls
were looked upon as conclusive, has passed
by, and no sall'es of wit nor flowery senten
ces, will convince the thinking people of
Preble county that, no eiu exists thit no
"bargain and sale" is in process of consum
mation, and that the Editor of the Register is
not a wool dyed Abolitionist, imported here
for the especial purpose of uniting with, if
possible, or sell'ng out the Whig party to the
Free Soiler?. If such are to be the charac
teristics of the campaign, we want to know
it It personal slang is to take the place of
argument and principle, "pitch in," we have
had some experience in handling blackguard
wbig editors and wire-workers, clique-jnen,
dee., and would not fear to lay bold of and
dissect, even such an unclean thing as an im
ported, Abolition-clique editor; but we sorted
out with the determination not to be dragged
into personalities, if we could possibly avoid
them, for, to intelligent readers they are doubt
lesa anvthing biU pleasant. Therefore, we
shall let the Editor and Proprietor and Clique
Board of Control find pleasure in such cess
poo's of detraction as suits their nature, and
we shall conticue to warn the people of po
litical bargaining, rascality and trickery, feel
ing assured that, the good sense of the people
of Preble county will demonstrate beyond a
cavil that, theie must be something wrong
where personal abuse atd slang usurps the
place of argument.
p-SiDSKY C. Burton, Esq., the frnious
persecutor in the Martha Washington case,
Jailed in securing an appropriation from Con
gress to aid him in convicting the defendants.
The terrible tales of robbery, murder and vil
lainy which were retailed to members to ex
cite their minds and produce the desired ef-
hcX,fniled, and caused the application to fall
dead, a still-bcrn thin?, because the picture
was overwrought and the poison carried with
it its own antidote. Thus s' ould it be, and
thus we hope it ever will be in our glorious
country. The sober second thought of the
people is always .right, and after. the first
ebullition of surprise was over, the public
mind began to look upon these alleged Villai
nies with a calm dispassionate view, and hav
ing examined all the circumstancea connected
with the whole transaction, and seen the de
fendants go through riro ordeals before sepa
rate tribunals of their country on different
charges, and having come out uascsthed, pop
ular opinion associated persecution with the
who'c affair, and begins to ldok upon the de
fendants ai more sinned against than sinning.
We shall keep our readers advised of all the
turns this excitinr case takes, but, we must
confess there is but little interest manifested
as to its futura or final result. The Prosecu
tion has so signally failed in every attempt
tbal, nothing is expected but a "turning of
the tables." We ore'glad Congress made no
appropriation. The precedent would have
been ruinous to justice as well as the coun
try. The Prosecutor will now have to face
the music upon the merits of the case withcut
aid and comfort from Congress, or the power
ful influence of government. So may

There must be something wrong a screw
loose somewhere ! Those anxious enquiries as
to what was "toberfiii" this fall, has perhaps
enliphtetied the cigueeditor a little, as to how
the people felt upon certAin subjects. The
votes of Free Sailers at the ballot box for par
lictilar friends would be very nice, but such
presumr'ion as offering opinions as to how the
canvass is to be conducted, or a ticket nomina
ted, cannot be tolerated. If Free Soilers wish
anything from the clique, they must dance to
the music, and no attempt to dictate what
tune shall be piped ! The Free Soilers, wa
do not believe will consent to play any such
girr.e they will r.ot be led up to the -baJloV

who essay to be their masters! There must

qf old Preble ia as Jet tdtkout a ticket, and
according to the confession of the '"Register"
not knowing what to do T "How are the migh
ty fallen 1" The hosts who in times gone by
rallied under the banner ofClay, and Harrison,
and other beloved leaders, have become scat
tered and dispirited. Their ranks thinned by
desertions and broken by the falseness of de
signing bad men who assumed to co'mmsnd.
The sentinels upon their battlements proved
traitors to the cause, and bartered with the
enemy for a surrender ot the citadel. Princi
ple was sacrifice ! for personal preferment and
the emolument of office. . Treason stalked
abroad in open day unrebuked, and those who
were once linked together by sentiments pa
triotic, are now distracted by isms, c'futsand
factions, each striving by every means, fair
aud foul to obtain the mastery over (he other,
and not hesitating much s to the means em
ployed, so that the end is obtained. .That por
tion of the Whig party who maintain their
nationality and continue to assert their love of
the Union and their devotion to State Kights
are denounced by the traitors to the principle3
of Clay, Harrison and Webster, t dough-face;
while the portion who have wandered off afte,
sectionalism and fanaticism, hesitate not to
join with any faction in the hope of gaining

office! The professed organ, now winks
at treason and trickery advocates sectional
ism and fanaticism glories in the degradation
of being capable of advising resistance to
laws virtually denies State Rights and is
willing to sell the national whigs of the cottrtty
of Preble, through the Clique facjion, (who
never were whigs, but in the hope of getting
office,) to the Free Soilers ! A few steps more'
and lhe last vestige of glorious whiggery wjll
be swept from the "Register," and the blsck
banner of Abolitionism float where once rode
in triumph on lhe breefe, the broad pennant
of the national whig party ! Each week dem
onstrates more fully and unmistakably the in-
lentions of the Abolition Editor and the Cliqu"
Board of control. Let them beware. Ksmall
portion of the Freemen of Preble county may
consent thus to be transferred, but the great
mass will never endorse any such proceeding!
STWe understand that the Clique in their
negotiations with the FreeSoilers, offered them
a certain county office, as a tine qui non ;for
their support of the clique ticket ortheir nom
inees! The Free Soilers with their proverbial
shrewdness discovered the hook beneath the
bait, and were not much disposed to bite ! The
argument offered against such a pioposition is
something like the following : The people
took that office out of the hands of the clique
years ago, and placed it in other keeping;
therefore, it is not in the power of any partyto
giveitawajr, for any consideration lhe people
bting sovereigns still, will elect to that sta
tion whom Ihey please. If these bargainers
catch the Free Soilers napping, they will have
to get up early in the morning.

A Faithful Parallel.
The Vermont Patriot draws the following
parallel between the action of the opponents
of the the democracy now and the action of
the opponents of the democracy in the days ol
the Uurtfurd Convention:
The Hartford convention was called, among
oilier things, "to check the encroachments ol
the slave power," which it was said the pur
chase of Louisiana was intended to advance,
and which Jefferson and the democratic party
were accused of secretly aiding. And this
wis to be done by the formation of a grand
sectional northern party, whose object was
treason to the States and a dissolution of the
Union. The Northern me.i who favored Ihe
convention denounced their Southern party
friends, and cutting lo sc from them attempted
a magnificent coalition of men of all partes,
to curry out the treasonable schemes, unuer
the specious pretext of checking the advance
of the slate power, end meeting the overwhelm-
in" influence ol (ne nouin in our national
counci'ls. What is the difference between the
origin, the objects, and the prettxts of lhe
old and new Federal parlies? Nonr at am. !
Now, es then, disappointed office-seekers and
broken-down party hacks, are the leaders;
traitors, lories, fanatics, infidels, atheists, the
tools; the pretext, the slave-power and the
influence of the South; a sectional party, the
instrument, and a dissolution of the Union,
tho object! The instincts of the men, the
material, the tools, the pretext and tke object,
are identically the same.

Abundant Crops in Europe.
fhe Intelligence from all parts of Europe
relative to the fine and abundunt crops is
causing the prices of breadstuff to fall very
fast in the murkttta ol that country.
In Great Bntan the corn crops were never
better or lhe growth greater. France lms
wheat crops the present season superior in
quality and larger in quantity than in former
years. Un the Continent the Crops are exten
aire, and the markets are not only dull, but
fast declineing. A circular from Uostook cal
dilates on a large yield, at least one-fourth
ab' Ve the usual average of the wheat crop
and more than a full average ol' other coin. ,
There are the same prospects in the lialtic
districts, and accounts are extremely favorable
from Norway, Sweden and .Denmark. In
Prussia there are excellent prospects of i
great vielil, and ofSinyrna the gram is unus
ually plentiful. In Egypt the prices have
greatly fallen, and at Alexandria the corn is
most abundant. In the Principalities the corn
is being cut by the Hussions, but in Bulgaria
the harvest has been most abundant cn the
whole. Potatoes promise to bcubundanf In
spite of war there seems to be an abundance
of the elements which give impulse to Indus

Bold Attempt at Assassination.
On the night of the 14ih, at S'. Louis,
man who gjve bis name as Isaac Newton, was
attacked at or near tha comer or Spruoe and
Fourth streets, by a gang of ruffians, who first
knocked him down, and, upon the poor fellow
begging for hia life, robbed him of a small
amount of money and then sttbbed him seve
ml times. One wound was in fie back, an
other in the throat, and a third in the breast,
the knife penetrating the. lungs. He was left
on tbe sidewalk, and shortly afterward some
of tht, police came along and he was conveyed
to the Hospital. There is no probability of
his recovering, and he slates thai he gave them
no prorogation lor their murderous assault.
Newton was a stranger in the city, and had
