accustoned to such scenes, this is a
erystriking time on ship board.
Aferwards, and when its novelty had
long worn off, it never ceased to have
peculiar interest and charn for me.
The gloom through which the great
black inass holds its direct and certain
codirse, the rushiing water, plainly
heardl, but dimly seen; the broad,
hiteglistening track, that follows in
the vessel's wake; the men on the look
- itfonyard, who would be scarcely
sible'against the dark sky, but for
l- eir bloting out some score of glisten
g stars;.the helmsman at the wheel,
i th* illuminated card before hii,
- shining a speck of light amidst the
darkness, like something sentient, and
o ine intelligence; the melancholy
,sighing of the wind throngh block, and
ope, and chain; the gleaming forth of
light from every erevice, nook, and
tiny piece of glass about the decks, as
though the ship were filled with fire in
'.hidingfready to burst through any out
let, wild with its resistless power of
eth and ruin. At first, too, and even
when the hour, and all the objects it
. ex~ts,'have come to be familiar, it is
.tflficult, alone and thoughtful, to hold

A correspondent of otne of the mor-ning
journals, gives the following summary
-- of railway accidents: The number,
of passengers transported on the Prus
sian railways in 1851, was 9,901,681.
'Of this number, one person was killed
by jumping out of the cars; ibur were
4-wounded; four we're killed; and three
wounded by being on the track when
~-* the cars passed. Of omeiers and work
' men in employ of the dilfierent conmpa
nlies, eighteen were killed and twenty
wounded. One person was killed by
--- ohintarily throwing himself uinder the
-~ wheels of the cars. lIn England, dur
ing the same year, the number of pas
s'engers was 78,369,023, of whom 36
were killed and 375 wotunded. Sixty
- ~ one persons, not passengers, were kill
ed, and fourteen wounded on the track.
Of officers and workmen employed by
the-companies, there were 117 killed
and 48 wvounded. Four persons coim
mnittied suicide by throwing thlemnselves
under the wheels of the cars.

tbeproeedin of .teisphours of
the late session' of Congregi, without a I
blush. Both Houses presented scenes I
of violence, confusion, iaste and vul- t
arity, of a truly disgraceful character.
Such paragraphs as these -occur very t
frequently in the report: t
"Great confusion prevailed all ov.
er the Hall, and the galleries and lob
bies were crowded with spectators."
Again, says the reporter:
"Sundry violent struggles were oc- I
casionally made to obtain the floor, a
hundred or more gentlemen rising at t
once, and shouting out 'Mr. Speaker,'
severally liolding up the bills they 1
were so anxious to have considered. t
The scenes occasioned much laughter." I
Once more he pauses in his labors, to i
send this over the wires: I
"It was eight o'clock. The galler- t
ies were densely crowded, and lobby I
members present increased in num- t
bers. So much noise and confusion i
prevailed, that it was next to impossi- I
ble to comprehend the legislative pro- <
ceediugs. Members,were continually I
going to and returning from the outer I
room, in which were liquid and solid I
refreshments. Amendments to Navy I
bill still discussed and voted on. Some <
memibers, weary of the dry proceed- i
ings, retired to chat with lobby friends I
and smoke segars. The falling of a I
lady's fan from the gallery, hitting an i
honorable below upon the head, but <
not seriously wounding him, excited f
sonic little merriment. Just about I
this moment a burly old member came 1
into the Hall with a hunk of bread and I
ham in his hands eating thereof I
most heartily." I
Two hours later, he records: 1

At half-past three, the following cir

are pleased to announce to our readers
that the Council this day subscribed
$500,000 to the Blue Ridge Railroad
Company, thereby securing the Charter
granted by the State for this great and
inportant enterprise. Their work is,
however only half accomplished, and
it ought not to be permitted to rest.
Mr. Gourdin's letter published yester
day, shows that a subscription of a like
sum to the road through Georgia is
absolutely necessary. His views on
the subject are simple aid clear, and

FATAL AsD MELANCHoLY ACcIDENT.
-Few circumstances of the kind have
given us more regret and sorrow than
the dheath of William, the oldest son
of the late Judge Robert B. Alexan
decr, in the 14th year of his age. We
learn that on Sunday last' whilst at
play with his companions, one of them
accidently stru' k him with a small
pieac o wire, which, penetrating his
brain just ab o his cye, -caused his
death on Sunday night. The deceased
was an ainiable, intelligent and prom
ising youth, unive. rsally. beloved by his
yoiung associates, and greatly priz d
by his older acquaintances for that
coim bination of good qualities so rarely
ti:unmd in one of is age. Sympathy,
w.'e know, can biring but little confort
to the sorrowful, still it may soothe
some momentary panig of a mother's
heart to know that a whole commnuni
ty feel most deeply for her loss, and
would glad ly, were it possible, mitigate
the anguish oft this heavy bereavement.

"A Min e Yainkee" announces
through the Washington National In
telligen er. the invention of a form of
road and improved locomotive, which,
he says, w 11l safely transport the mails
and paissengers at the rate of one hun
dired miles per hour! TVhe wvriter
further says lie has been made acquain
ted with the details ofthese improve
tments, "which are so palpably correct
in theory, anid feasible in practice, that
every civil engineer and Rail Road
man will, on examination, at once re
cogiiize amnd ad mit, as the desideratum,
even to the extent of safety and speed
above indicated." The next Congress,
it is said, is to be inivited to secure its
adoption, and give to the world the
result of the first experiment. The
construction of a Post Rail Road be
tween W asigtonm and New-York, the
Baltimore Sun thinks will be hastened
by this iinventio~n.
