BKKCIIBU ON IT.
Mr. Boccber, In reply, spoke substan
tially ai follows:
"Brethren, I stand upon this question of
iuo uuiiuinoni oi Davis just where I did
two year ago. If It can be proved that
ho was privy to any scheme of assaslna
tlon, or that he cruelly violated the laws
of war, I say let him be tried and con-
aigniy punished. Here there was somo
applauso, which Beecher promptly
checked by saying, "Here all 1 bava to
say, and then applaud at home if you want
to. ' But if ho Is chargod with any of
fense, lot him be tried for it. And I say
mai 10 detain a man. in prison tor months
nnd years without trial Is atrocious. It Is
contrary to all constitutions, and all laws
and all justice I have felt a profound
mortification over the fact that such a
thing was dono in this land of liborty and
law. And I honor Mr. Greeloy and Mr.
Gerritt Smith for interposing to prevent
the contlnuanco of such a crimo. If it
had been necessary I would have become

cised tho character or Air. Uoechor vory

SOME FRESH l'ARTr CULAKS.
In crdor to closo tho controversy start
ed by Mr. Voorbeed's allusion to Mr.
Greeley's signing tho Davis ball-bond as
"Impertinent Interference," tho Macon
(Ga.l Telegraph prints tho following com
munication, which it vouches for ns from
tlio most authentic source:
"Mrs. Davis went to New York to con
sult Chas. O'Conor, Mr. Davis's counsel,
as to tho best manner of effecting his ro
loaso from prison. Mr. O'Conor told her
that in bis opinion there was but ono wax-
that it could bo dono. nnd that was to cet
tbo rcprescntntlve man of tho republican
party to slcn.bis bond. Mrs. Davis in-
quired who thnt man was. Mr. O'Conor
repllod that It was Horaco Greeley. She
then asked him if ho would not seo Mr.
Greeley and get'hlm to do it. Ho replied
inai lie had no inuuencu with .Mr. Greeley,
nnd thnt sho was the proper person to seo
htm. Sho went to his office, sent in hor
card, nnd was invited into his r.rivate
ofllco. She said to him : " Mr. Greeley,
my husband is conllnod in a casemato at
lortross JUonroo. He has been thoro for
manv lonir wearv months. Hn i n fanliln
old man, nnd ho Is gradually sinking un
der his rigorous imprisonment. Uu will
dio if ho romains thero much longer. I
camo hero to consult Mr O'Conor ns to the
moans of uettintr him roleased. Ho has
told mo that thero is but ono. way to do it,
and that is to get the representa
tive man of tho republican
party to sicn his bond, and savs that vou
aro tlio man. Ho says that you have a
Kinu neart, nnu will do it, it you bellove
it to bo right. My husband is dying.
Mr. Greeloy, may I hope that you will fa
vorably consider my application ?" Mr.
Greeloy aroso, extended his hand to Mrs.
Davis, and said : ".Madam, you may, for I
will sign his bond." Mr. Greoloy was
.t . . . .. . , .T .
men a prominent canuiuaio ueioro mo leg
islature for tho United States scnalo.
Somo of his frlonds hoard that ho had
agreed to sign Mr. Davis' bond, and went
to nun and protested against It. They
told him that they had mado a count, and
that ho would bo elocted by six majority,
out, ii no signeu mo uonu u would dereat
him. He replied; "I know it will."
They told him thnt ho was ono of the
owners of tho 'Tribune,' and if he signed
this bond he would loso thousands of sub
scribers. Ho replied: "I know it." They
said, "Mr. Greeloy, you havo written a
history of tho war; ono volume vou have
out, and havo sold largo numbers of it.
lour second volume is nearly out, and
you have largo orders for that. If you
sign tuts bond these orders will bo coun
termanded and you will lose a largo
amount of money." Ho replied: "Gentle
men, I know it; but It is right, and I'll do
it." He did do it, and I am infjrmed that
he lost a seat in tho United States senate,
and $30,000. To my mind, this does not
look like "Impertinent interference."
THE BELLEVILLE HORROR,
TIIK RKCENT CANADIAN RAILROAD ACCI
DENT AS DESCRIBED BY AN EYE-WIT
Mr. Robert Nelson Roddv. who witness
ed tho recent accident near Belleville,
makes tho following statement to the
"I resido at Poterboroucb. and am
managor for Mr. AVatson, who has the
contract for building the Dominion tel
egraph lino irom that place to Uarrle. On
tho night or Friday last I took the train
at Port Hope for Brookvillo. bavimr with
me cloven men who had been working for
mo, arm to whom i uau granted tour days'
lcavo of absence, to allow of their visiting
their families, all of whom lived in the
lowor province They wero all steady,
hard-working men. I was In tho smoking-car,
and aftor remaining a short timo,
I wont into tho second-class nnd asked my
foreman to como with mo into the first
class part of tho train ; but ho declined to
do so. I then returned thero alono and
lay down upon tho soat, when I suddenly
felt a Jar, as If some of tho cars in tbo fore
part of tho trnln woro tipping over. I
tried to opon tho window of tho car I was
in, but it appeared to bo Jammed, and I
got out of too door and ran to seo what
wns tho matter, but for a short timo could
not do so for tho donso cloud of steam.
Aftor a moment or two, 1 managed to cet
to the front of tho train, and from there
into tho uppermost sido of tbo second-
class car. I tried to opon tho
windows: but, finding I could
not do so, ran round to the platform side
of tho smoking car, and got a crowbar out
of n numbor which belonged to our men.
l saw that the two cars had " telescoped."
I then commenced to broak tho windows i
of tho second-class car, and several of tho
men camo out through them, 1 smashed In
the door, und, as tho steam had pretty well
dispersed, 1 went In and found somo of the
men sitting in their seats, apparently stun
ned and unconscious. Conductor Neilson,
tho Pullman car conductor, and two vol
untoors from Port Hope one of thorn was
named Skitch then came in, and wo went
to tho middlo of tho car and saw that the
side was completely smashed in, and thero
woro many of the passengers buried
among the ruins, AVo Immediately com
menced lifting them out, and as I was thus
engaged, I found two little children lying
in tho bottom of tho car and quite dead.
Tho clothes of all thoso I touched were so
hot that I could scarcely bear to handle
them. One woman, who I believe to be
Mrs, Callender, died just as she was llfte
out. The safety-valve of tho engine pr
truded right Into the car, and I do not
think there was a partlclo of water two
minutes after tbe engine went over on Its
side. AVhen all the passengers had boon
got out, I went to look at tho engine, and
saw Hlbbert tbe drivor lying between the
engine and broken truck of one of the cars
?ulte dead. Five of tho olhors died bo
oro they could be removod. The sight
was an awful one. As soon as tbe mon got
Into tbo cool night air, they began to sur
fer dreadfully, and thoircrles wero fright
ful to hear. They toro their ckthes off.
and many of them jumped tho fonco and fled
across tho fields, crying out tho whole time
most pitifully. Ono man got away
at least a quartor or a mile bo
foro I could catch him. and an
other was half a nillo off when ho
was found. Belleville was communicated
with, and a train was soon upon the spot ;
but before it arrived tbe scalded peoplo
began to complain of cold, so with some
of tho loose planks wo made fires, and rig
god up shelters from the wind. Tho pco
plo were then placed on the train and
taken to Belleville Most of my men had
considerable sums of money with them.
The damage done was strictly confined to
the two cars mentioned, tho second class
and the smoking. The postofflce attached,
with its occupants, escaped by something
little short of a miracle. Tho first-class
and Pullman cars, (though tho former got
off the track) and their passengers sus
tained no Injury. It is a most singular
thing that, among all tho number of killed
and wounded, with about two exceptions,
viz., tho drlverand;,another man, tboso
injured did not sustain the slightest con
tusions; but tho scalds were something
beyond all description. A visit to Belle
ville freight shed on Saturday evening was
sufficient to unstring tbo strongest norves,
and create a feeling of pity in the hardest
heart. There, stretched out upon the tres
tle beds or mattresses laid upon tho floor
amongst tbe goods, were some SO fearful
looking objects, somo writhing about in
the acutest agony. Others, exhausted by
the pain they wero suffering from the
scalds and the stoam they had inhaled, lay
porfectly passive while somo kind female
or man dressed their hurts with cooling
lotions, or kept a current of air about them
with fans. The poor creatures, with their
swollen and bandaged features and limbs,
presonted an appearanco which can never
bo effaced from tho memories of thoso who
saw them. The patients whom death
early released from their agony passed
away, without exception, in tho quietest
manner. No struggle, no painful gasping
for breath, but thoy seemod to sink into
a doze, which gradually changed into the
sleep of death."
