MONDAY EVENING. MARCH 14.
Mr. PowDERDY once said be never allow?
ed a glaes bottle to leave bis house except
by way of a window. The bands in the
glasa works at Tittsburg, have, as is only
natural, gone a bow shot beyond Mr. Pow
derly, und have declared a boycott upon ali
who use bottles that have been used before.
The object in both cases is to increase the
demand for new bottles, and consequently
for the lat or that makes Iheua. But in this,
as in most other similar instances, the de
s.'ue.i object, even if effected, would be at
the expense of people who can ill all'ord to
bear it. The small extra cost of a new bot?
tle is nothing to a rich man, but it is vastly
different to a poor woman whose last cent

therefore, should conline the municipal ex?

so that taxes and the price of gas may bo
reduced, and the watFr company should ro

Manning to Mexico, whom tho younger

Why the gentlemen referred to were re?
called every body knows; but why Consul
Porch, who whs compelled to report Mr.
Sedgwick, and whose report was snbmiticd
to that gentleman before it was forwarded,
was recalled, no body seems to know, except
Mr. Bayard, and he evidently thinks this is
too much uf a personal government for him

The now seuior .Senator from Virginia,
Mr. IliddJehereer, lefcjiero for his home
last Saturday night. In the. geueral change
of seats incident to a new Congress Mr.
Riddleberger didn't change his. ilis pres?
ent seat is now next to ami right in front of
the doer leading into the cloak room on the
republican side of the Senate. The seat cf
Mr. Daniel, tho junior seuator, is on tho ex?
treme right of the outer row on the demo?
cratic side. During a conversation botween
a democratic aud a republican Virginian, in
the lobby one of the large hotels here to?
day, on the probable future course of Mr.
Riddleberger in tho Senate, the democrat
remarked that if Virginia should go demo?
cratic at next fall's eleotion Mr. Riddleber?
ger, who was not particularly euamored of
any of the Seuate's present oflicers, mieht
please himself by voting against ihem. To
this the republican replied that knowing his
fate in case of republican success at the
elestion referred to, from tho enmity of
General Mahone, Mr. Riddleberger would
probably be more diaposed in that event to
suit himself thau if the democrats were to
succeed. From this it would appear that I
to some people, at least, Mr. Riddleberger
seems to be between the devil and a deep
It is said here by congressmen still re?
maining in ihe city that the President, who
until recently has maintained that one

possible for him to exert to have his veto
of that bill sustained; and to show the
strength 67 that influeuce it is only necessa- j
ry to recall the fact that though it was pass
ed by more than a two-thirds majority, it
lacked a large number of the votes requisite j
to pass it over his veto.
Senator Edmunds is still here, and is in
attendaaco upon the session of the U.S.;
Suprtme Court. He does not deny that in
a recent interview he said that between the ! i
two evils, Cleveland and Blaine, the mug?
wumps would stand by the former, as they
did befoie. From this it is evident that Mr. j
Edmunds has neither forgiven nor forgotten
Mr. Blaine for rejecting his proffered hand
at the Arthur funeral. i

Crosby was close to the quartermaster at
the wheel, und as the Coronet croesed the
Hue he must have felt proud of tbe yacht
whose construction he superintended ami
whose course ho is to direct.
Five miuutes after the Coronet passed,
the Dauntless crossed the line. Captain
Samuels stood near the helmsman. The
yacht set her huge squaresaii just before
crossing the line, and every stitch that was
possible was spread to the breeze and doing
its full duty. The race had been fairly
started. Both contestants were off. The
yachts went through the Swash Channel
and*thenco out to the deep sea.
Off Fire Island the wind hauled to noitli
soon after two o'clock. This brought the
wind nearly abeam, aud the Equaresaite
and topsails, which both yachts carried,
had to be taken in. With the wind on the
port side the Dauntless seemed to do better
than she had with it nearly astern, and it
required a very rapid steamer to keep up
with the iace.
The Coronet had spread to the breeze an
enormous maintoprnast staysail whose pull?
ing power was supremo. Tbe wind
blew higher and higher, but still Cap

Meanwhile the Coronet, which showed her?

thing. The water was smooth, and both
yachts were behaving beautifully. Abreast

sky was clear and they bad the prospect of

Boston, March 14.--A heavily loaded

about 7 o'clock this morning between Ros

I cclvod later state tbat nineteen bodies bavt
! already been taken from tbe ruins. It if
said tbat 23 petsons were killed and 40 in
[jured. Among these are many women
j The conductor was among the killed. Th(
I accident occurred on the Dedham branch o
the Boston aud Providence railroad, be'
tween Forest Hill and Roslindale, at whal
is known as Bu3sey Bark bridge. The "
o'clock train from Dedham, consisting o:
Sbven cars and a baggage car, broke
through the bridge. The engine and three
cars weut over safely, but the live others
fell through the bridge to the road beneath-;
a distance of 30 feet. The last car, which
was the smoker, turned completely over and
struck on top of tbe others, all being crush?
ed almost out of shape. The cause of the
accident is said to have been the breaking
of the bridge. Tbe smoking car after it fell
caught ou lire, but the fire department waE
promptly on hand and prevented any spread
of the llamea.. The train was crowded with
working people, and the most intense ex?
citement prevails amoDg their friends, who
are anxious to learn the names of those kill?
ed and injured. There are no reliable de?
tails of tbe number of the dead as yet. The
police say that 2:5 were killed outright and
that nearly as many will die. The bodies
of the killed were horribly mangled, some
of their heads being entirely severed from
their bodies, and many of tbe bodies are
crushed beyond recognition.
The latest computation shows a total of
2:) killed and 50 injured.

this city. James Barrett lives near the
Spencer mines, together with his family,
consisting of his wife and seven children.
At tbe hour named George Murrell, an Ital?
ian, visited Barrett's house, and an alterca?
tion occurred concerning a woman named
Collins, who was in tbe house at tbe time.
Before Murrell was ejected he cut Barrett
with a knife or razor. Some other Italians
who lived in the neighborhood heard the
noise and proceeded to Barrett's house.
Just what followed is not known, but two
reports from a shot gun were heard, and
when the scene was reached by officers the
dead bodies of George and Jose Murrell
were lound near tbe bouse with their heads
and necks perforated with buck-shot. A
third Italian named Motz received a num
bor of buck shot in the abdomen, aud his
recovery is not thought to be probable.
Barrett was arrested. He admits having
done the shooting, but says he acted iu self

Baltimore, March 14 ?Since it has
becomo generally known tbat a meeting of
railroad men was held in this city yesterday
the people are rapidly coming to the con?
clusion that tho Baltimore & Ohio R. R.
will be sold. People are now talking on the
streets about the possibility of the road fail?
ing to pay a stock dividend because of ex
tension and improvements, in which event
large interests may bo put to serious incon?
venience. There is however much confi?
dence manifested iu the solidity of the road,
and shares sold to-day at 170 against 165 on
Saturday. There were 136 shares sold at
the higher figure. It is some time since eo
much of the stock was on the market. Mr.
Garrett was seen to-day, but would not say
anything ia regard to the road, nor the
telegraph system. He declined to say if be
had recent communication with a prominent
telegrnp'u officer from New York. A search
of all the hotel regi-stors has failed to discover
the preseuca of such officer in Baltimore,
though ho may have been here.
LONDON, March 14.?The roport printed
by the Standard that an unsuccessful at
tempt to assassinate the Czar of Russia had
been made is utterly discredited by M. de
Staal, tho Russian ambassador. In an in?
terview this morning the ambassador said
he had received no telegram in relation to
such an attempt, and this was sufficient ev
ideucc to convince him that the report was
unfounded. If it wore true he would have
received a dispatch long ago. The ambas?
sador said he was about to attend a service I
in the Russian chapel in commemoration of
tho Czar's accession to tho throne, and it I
was not likely that he would leave the em
bassy if there was the least probability of
any news of that character being received.
The Standard, commenting on the reported
attempt on the Czar's life, says: "3uch an
event might be sufficient to turn the scale
in the direction of war. Fro* this point of
view the outrage is of the gravest possible
