She Gets a Medal. — Some time ago these column* contained an account of the return to J. L. Skinner, of this city, of a sword taken from him in tha late war, when he was raptured by the Confederates. The officer who took it f.om him was a Captain Hill, who wore it during the remainder of the war, acd who after the close of the rebellion pave it to his mter, Miw Mollie F. Hill, of Vir ginia, at her earnest request, that she might, if possible, restore it to the friends of its original • woer, it being supposed that he was dead. The spirit manifested by the letter which accompanied the sword upon it* re turn was regarded by the ex- veteran soldiers who were a--eii;Med at the ii c ;tiu.r on Sat urday evei icg, &i so noble and heroically patriotic that it was at once unanimously resolved to give expression of its rec ignition in a suitable maater by all the ex-Union sol dieis in Sacramento. In ace trd&ace with this purposß a purse was immediately made up by voluntary contributions to procure a fine gold medal, with suitable inscriptions, to present to her, and a commutes appoint- d to draft r>sjlutions to accompany the pra< sontatioQ.

' A Passenger Train Duheß into the Rear or a Freight Train— A f rakemaa Killed and Three Cars Burned— The Verdict of the Coroner's Jury. On Saturday, at 7:o* P. M , the overland exprees traiD from San FrancUco ran into a special freight train a short distance beyond I > ivi.villa. The freight caboose and two b.x cars caught fire acd burned np. la the ca- I booas wag a brakem&n named William Hcg- I fjatt. who was caught in the shattered car ! acd burned to a crisp before any assistance | c ii.'i be rendered. The cjllieion recurred tv: a short distance from the DavisvUle depot, and on a covered b.'iige over Putah creek. The freight train was composed of empty caw, and was ran ring on, or nearly on, the time of the express i train. At the time of the acjilent the ca | boose and three cars from the rear of the I train were standing detached from the re maicder of the train, which had gone some «i,c(i ahead. The conductor, Thomas ItiUy, was near the front of the train, it be ing the intention to fide-track at th.-t place. As soon as he knew of the accident he hur ried back to the scene and entered the burn ing caboose, and seizing an ax attempted to extricate tbe iaiprinr.ned brakeman. He worked until tbe ti>- drove him from the car, i; having singed his hair and whisker?. The exprees train was in charge of con ductor Weat. W. A. G.irri«m w»s tiie en giueer, and Frank Hal!, fireman. It is claimed by the engineer and tireman that the usual red lights were not on the rear of the freight train. As teun as the train was ob terved the engineer reversed tbe engine and nut on the air-brakes. The darkness and the bridge prevei.ted him from Beeing it in time to stop the coll is ion. He staved at hu post of duty, and when the engine struck, the caboose wax thrown on the top i.f the first box car, and the front of the engine was elevated to inch a decree as to pwwrt him from get ting out of the front of the es.b, und he had to break the window to make his exit. The fireman jumped from the moving train at the first signal of danger acd escaped n»lurt. The shock to the express train caused the . usual consternation among the pas'engfr«, tut Superintecdent Wright, of this divis.;<n, wbo was on boud, was at the scene of the wreck as coon as possible, and with the as tUtancecf the train nien acd the passencer^, bad the coaches run back cut of dingerof t:»e fire. The proximity to the bridge placed that in danker from the (hm-v, and it was only prevented fr; m burning by wet ! 1 >i k :. btirg placed on the timbers. An attempt was first made to reach the brakcrcan in the burning caboose, but without avail. _ Word was immediately telegraphed to this city for a---i---ii.ee and also to the wrecking traio at Vallejo. Some coaches from the yard here were sent at once, and the local passengers ami those bound for Colfax and j way stations wero trantferred and brought to thii city, arriving here at l>:15 o'clock. Over | land pissenge.-e, &^d tho mail and express, i were left in the cars standing on the track until the wreck c.uld be cleared. This, with the assistance of the wrecking train, was ac complished in Beaton for thedeUved train to reach Sacramento at 7:45 yesterday morning. The train sent f io.n this city, as soon as it re turned with the transferred passengers, went back and received the passengers from the San Fracciscy local train, which U due one hour after the overland. It arrived the sec ond time, shortly after u.i.ii-fcht. Superin- I tendent Wright rernkined at tie scene of the disaster all night, laboring with the wreck ers. A. J. Vermilya, of this city, who was a pas reoger on the exprts* train, says he was fit ting in a car taikiog toother passengers, when they wereenddenlv filched forward over the eeatp. His fire: impression wi; that twci trains had run into each other. He got out j <-f the ear as s>on as he couid and went for i ward to the ermine. He says the first thing he saw was tho engine standing at an angle of abjut 45 degrees, with the first freight car us a support, the caboose having been thrown on top of the first rear box car. He then heard erica from the caboose, "Oh, niy head !" and "Help ! help !" He sail Kdwin Glover, of this ci'y, attempted to enter the Cibooae to resoua tbe imprisoned brakeman ; «l»o that tin , pre»eace of mind *nd coolness cf Superintendent Wright ia directing the men, and the peri#nal Resistance recdercd, was all that prevent the bridge from baicg buruer l , and parhai* seme ut the cira of the express traio.

Hw-ver, eye witnesses state that the remainder of the tr*in was but a short distaece ahead and also on the main track. Tee brakeman, William Hoggatt, who lost his life, was about 26 er 27 years of age, and was the tallest man employed on thi-i pirtion of tbe road. He was known among railroad men as " Omaha." Some five or six years since he worked on the Sacramento Divi-ion for some time, after which be went East, returning something over a year ago. He was a native of and his parents still re tide in Ames, Story county, lowa. A Coroner's inquest was hald on the re mains cf the brakeman at Davisvillo yester day, and news received at the office of the train dispatcher last night says the jury brought in a verdict of death caused by the careledgnesj of the train m«c. Beyond the death of Hoggatt no one was injured other than by flight bruises. It ih stated that the force of the cjllUion was tuch us to shatter some of the timbers in tue bridge. .Fire.— An alarm tf fire wa3 soutded at 1:30 o'clock this morning caueed by the burning of a pnn.li frame dwelling in Slater's ad iii.in to this' city.

The action is taken on account of statements which recently appeared in that journal on the question regarding the alleged lack of proper ac commodation for tl.e steerage passengers on the Sardinian during her recent voyage.

Pickett, who, by his harmless peculiarities, had etrned the sobriquet of "Philosopher," died at the Gallison Hotel, Mariposa, after an illnees of two weeks. Mr. Pickett had had a premonition of his death, and before leaving this city had requested Notary Pub lic George T. Knox to take charge cf bis atfairs in the event of his ferrs being con firmed. Mr. Pickett intrnsted to Mr. Knox a package of money, which he said wan All he possessed, and he desired that after his death the money should be sect to his brother, Wil!i»<n S. Piekett, of C> lumbia, Term. Yesterday, Mr. Knox, upon being apprised of Mr. Pickett's death, opened the package and found that it contained $70 — the amount being made up of three $20-pieeea and a SlO-piece. In obedience to the request of the " Philos opher," hii brother was notified of the bequest, and Mr. Knox is now awaiting an answer. 0. E. Wckett was a man of excellent family and education. He came to this coast in early times, and was one of the inmates of Gutter's Fort in 1544 or 1845, and while there killed a man. Among the jury which tried and acquitted him was Samuel Brannan. In 1848 Mr. Pickett laid claim to some land on llincon Hill, and held possession of it until ejected from his tent by the United States authorities. Twenty year* after the claimant, who had by that time come into possession of the title of " Philosopher," commenced suit for damages against the owner of the property on which lie had made the unsuccessful attempt to squat. After a trip to tJie Sandwich Islands Mr. Pickett returned to California, and afterward remained in the State. At oce time he was considered well-to-do, but he lost some property near Sutter's Fort, and subsequently remained i poor. He showed to anxiety to ' chang« hia condition of life, and generally took the world aa he found it. Occasionally, however, a spasm j of reform dispelled tl>e calmness of hie > philosophy and made him a more noted ; character of the city. In one of these ah normal tits Mr. Pickett attempted to dis piMMi a Supreme Jadgo who was tup posed to hold his seat unlawfully. The ' " Philosopher," having the bf>st legal opin- ; ion of the State to sustain his belief tint ! the Judge had no more authority to eit on i the Supreme B?nch than had any other ' citizen, quietly took poesession of the : Judge's chair one morning immediately ; after Court opened. For this act he was ! convicted of contempt of Caurt and sent to ! the County Jail. The penalty was modi- ! tied and the Philosopher released, but he never acknowledged that he was in error. ' He was a prolific writer of pamphlets, and I by those who knew him best was esteemed j as an affable, upright and intelligent, but ' decidedly eccentric gentleman— [San Fran- ' cisco Examiner, November 19th.

Changes os thk Moon's Sirface. I'rof. M. W. Harriugtoa refers to two kinds of changes on the moon's surface which may be regarded as fairly established. The first is the land slidee, which may doubt lees be caused by the great alterations of temperature to which the moon is subject. Many cf these slides may be easily recog nized with good telescopes. The second form of change is illustrated by craters, which have been proven to be different in 6ize and chape from what they were record ed by earlier observers. Many other changes have been suspected, but they are of a more uncertain and doubtful char acter. A man near Newman, Ga., has been working an alleged gold mine forty years, and has never made a cent. He is still confident that there's " millions in it." MARRIED. Sacr.imen'o, Ni>v< mbcr 10 — By Key. James U Dor. sc\. Platoon Gist n to Jennie Pearson.
