the notorious Robhoro' Cut, at 2:40 Cuts
Tho train consisted of seven coaches,
including mail, express and baggage

holts and fish plates for a distance of
three rails' length, and placed crowbars

rails it jumped the track, broke loose
from lHc tender and ran fifty foet on the
ties and turned over.
Fireman Lyons jumped and escaped
injury. Engineer John Koyd stuck to
his post and received a severe wound on
the back of his head and had bis hand
badly cut. The. lender turned across
tho track, throwing part of tho mail car
thirty foot to the side of the track.
. There wore four postal clerks in the
oars and all 'were slightly injured. .1. D.
[McCarthy, ono of them, received severe
injury to his right leg.
The baggage and express cars were
completely wrecked. The smoker,
which was filled with passengers, was
turned upside down and the car was
badly smashed. Strange to say, not one
of the occupants was severely injured.
Two chair ears jumped the track, but
did not. turn over. Tho Pullman was
the only coach to rem ahn on the track.
Tho engineer had stopped the trein a
short distance from the wreck to make
repairs on his engine, and tho train was
moving only eighteen miles ah hour
when fc'io engine struck the loose cod
rails, to which fact is no doubt due nhe

to the significance of last Tuesday's

pit.ction, the lesson it teaches and im?
presses, is that the Republican party, in

by tho virtue and intelligence of the

i loyalty to the fundamental principles of
tho declarationojf independence, and the
Constitution of the United States as
supported in, and protected by an honest
ballot, wisely cast, and duly counted
the country over.
"So far as my own electiou is con
corned, I have discovered such condi?
tions of fraud upon such examination of
tbo matter as I have been able to make,
that I am forced to contest tho result by
any judicial methods that are in my
reach, and even before a Democratic
house must decide whether the scat in
the Fifty-second Congress belongs to
Mr. Kpes or myself.
"In the city of Petersburg, and espec?
ially in the great counties of tho dis?

tho four small counties in tho district
wore claimed by Mr. Kpes' most earnest
friends by only a small majority."
