The death of Brlgham Young which

For the safety and comfort of travellers
the Pennsylvania llailroad Company
has adopted this rule : All passengers
are expected upon leaving the car to go
out at the front door, and all persons en

will prevent confusion and accident, and
render passengers less liable to become
the victims of pick-pockets and thieves.

Startling Death Scenes.
New York, August 25. Charles F.
Potter, real estate agent, aged thirty
three years, who resides with his aged
father and stepmother at No. 697 Butler
street, yesterday morning plucked some
flowers from his garden and arranging
them in emblematic form went to the
residence of John Freeman, No. 635 But
ler street, for the purpose of placing
them on the coffin which contained the
remains of his (Mr. Freeman's) child.
When Mr. Potter entered the room in
which the body lay he passed a number
of mourning relatives and approached
, the coffin with the flowers in his hand.
Passing them to a lady to place on
' the dead child, he suddenly became faint
and to the horror of the spectators fell
dead on the floor. Verdict of the cor
oner's jury,' death from organic, heart
More Railroad Slaughter.
About 4 o'clock Wednesday morning
an accident, caused by the washing out
of a bridge, occurred on the Chicago,
Rock Island and Pacflo Railroad at the
' east branch of Four-Mile Creek, seven
miles from Des Moines, Iowa. When
the train struck the bridge all but the
sleeping car went down into the Stream,
the engine disappearing entirely ' from
sight. Barnum's show car went down
among the rest and its occupants, eleven
in number, are believed to have all
been killed but one. Up to an early
hour this morning eighteen had been
taken from the wreck, and seventeen
injured persons extricated from the
debris. The latter were sent to Altoona,
while the bodies of the dead were taken
to Des Moines. The creek is twenty
feet deep in the channel, and a number
of bodies are supposed to have floated
down the stream. Three of the cars
were so firmly telescoped together that
it was found impossible to pry them
apart even with block and tackle.
Epitaph on Judge Lynch ' Victims.
The bodies of three men were found
hanging to a tree recently, in Red river
county, Taxas, with a placard pinned to
one of them bearing all the information
that is known of them. It read : " Here
is where we found them, and here is
where we left them. They s'tole horses
in Arkansas, and we are from there and
strangers here I" The bodies were taken
down and burled by th) citizens of the
Dastardly Outrage by Thieve.
New YORK,Augut25. Mrs. Hannah
Lane, aged thirty-three years, a seam.
stresS, was taken with an epileptic fit in
Central Park yesterday afternoon, and
fell to the ground unconscious. While
in this state she was stripped of her
clothing by tbieves,who carried off even
her shoes and underclothing. Officer
England, of the Park police, found the
unfortunate woman and called in the
aid of several ladles who gave her cloth
ing. Being still unconscious, Mrs. Lane
was removed to Bellevue. She is a con
firmed epileptic, and the exposure to
which she was yesterday ' subjected has
made her condition precarious. The
thieves have not been arrested. ' "
A Brute Skinned Alive.
The Mayficld (Ky.) Democrat says :
Several weeks ago an eleven-year-old
daughter of a Ballard county farmer
mysteriously disappeared, and all efforts
to find her whereabouts were fruitless
until ten days after her disappearance
when a neighboring farmer, while out
searching for his cow, heard the cries as
of Borne one in distress, and following
the direction of the sound found the lost
child in a dense ticket with both hands
tied together with a rope, One end of
which was tied to a tree. Near the tree
were some old clothes upon which ihe
child slept. The farmer inquired of the
child how she happened to be there in
that condition, when she told him that
a negro man had brought her there and
that he came there every night and
brought her something to eat and drink,
and that he violated her person. The
farmer told the child to remain quiet
until night, and he would procure assis
tance, and when the negro camo back
that night they would secure him, which
they did. When the girl was asked
what must be done with him she Bald
" skin him alive," which they proceeded
to do immediately. They commenced
at the crown of his head and stripped
the skin to his feet. He only survived
about five minutes after the operation.
A Mysterious Case of Murder and Suicide.
Chicago, August 28. A mysterious
case of murder and suicide occurred at a
late hour last night. William O'Sulllvan
aged thirty, sexton of St. Jarllth's Cath
olic church, while visiting two young
ladles at No. 62 Smith street, shot Katie
Brannock, aged twenty-three yeafs,over
the left ear, killing her instantly. He
immediately left the house, entered his
room at St. Jarllth's, shot himself, and
died in a few minutes. The only witness
of the deed was a friend of both parties
who heard no quarrelling between them,
and could give no reason for the rash
deed. Both victims were highly respect
able. A Man and Wife Shot by a Tramp.
Watertown, N. Y., August 27. Ste
phen Barber, and his wife were shot at
their home in Belmont, near Malone,
Franklin county, last night. Mr. Bar
ber is dead and the wife, who is shot
through the head, is not expected to live.
Robbery Is supposed to have been the
object of the muider. The murderer is
described by Mrs. Barber as a tramp who
got dinner at the house about a week
ago. The murderer is still at large.
White Hall, N. Y., August 27. A
box containing the notes stolen from the
Keeseville National bank was returned
to them by express to day. The robbers
also enclosed a letter saying the money
had been disposed of, and the bonds were
where all the detectives in America could
not find them.
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington, D. C, August 29th, 1877.
"When the regular army of the country
was organized, after the war, Congress
provided that 4 regiments, two of infantry
and two of cavalry, should bo composed
exclusively of colored men. Repeated ef
forts have since been made for the dis
banding of these regiments and the distri
bution of the colored soldiers throughout
all branches of the military service, but
without avail ; and the matter has of late
been brought prominently to the notice of
the President and Secretary of War, Mo
Crary. Although there is no existing law
prohibiting the assignment of colored
recruits to any regiment in the -service, yet
it has always been the practice to assign
them to the 4 original colored regiments.
The complaints now being made are made
by the white officers of these regiments
and are well worthy of attention. Because
the colored men are less susceptible to the
evil effects of the extreme heat, these regi
ments have beon continually kept on duty
along the Rio Grande, from the Gulf of
Mexico to the Pacific, while other regi
ments are transferred from one post to
another every two or three years, and are
thus able to enjoy the advantages of civili
zation a portion of the time at , least On
the other baud those four colored regi
ments, with their white officers, of course,
have been completely exiled for the last
ten or twelve yoars, with no change from
the uncivilized dud unhealthy locations
where tbey are stationed, their families
debarred from all social and educational
conveniences and comforts, debilitated in
health and with absolutely no privileges.
Many good officers have resigned for these
reasons very naturally.
Another matter under earnest considera
tion is relative to the Indiana.
The race for the Speakership of the next
Hours still goes on. Randall lately de
clared that he anticipated no rivalry, but
considered himself sure of the ohair. lie
has corns out In strong favor of the Texas
Paciflo Railroad scheme and of Govern
ment, and for the leveling, of the Mis
sissippi and the reclamation of the waste
lands on both sides of it. Many are op
posed to " saddle upon the country anoth
er 1100,000,000 in railroad indebtedness"
as tbey oall it, but the matter would ap
pear to be settled In favor of it all, should
a Speaker In favor Of it be elected.
We, who are staying at home this summer,
are not utterly disconsolate. We have
some good things if we can't dip in ocean
brine and listen to the saying of the wild
waves the whole day long. We have the
most luscious of eating. ' Apples, pears,
plums, poaohes, melons and grapes are
abundant and inexpensive. Our lunches
consist very generally of cream crackers,
loed tea and fruit. We live as quietly and
easily as possible and beliovo we shall be in
bettor condition for winter and its duties
and pleasures than half those who have
