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.

RAILWAY ACCIDENT.
' 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.

that of bio own ksdwlof^-o he did not koow
whether or »o'. the iijht-i were on the rear of
the train. iTi.e caboose ia suppnned to hsv.
caught firei from the lsmpn inside, or else
from the stove. Tha wrecking train arrived
h?re with tfce shattered engine at 11:45 A. M.
yesterday. : Iti rumber is 172.
Ai-sistan ; Superintendent Muir, when
asked yestjpday in regard to fie accidenf,
said if any CDe was responsible it was the de
ceased bnieman. It is senerally under
stood, howler, an. nog railroadmen, that the
conductor ■ di:ec'.ly responsible for any neg
l'gence of br*kemen. Mr. Muir also «»id
the det»chdß c&r* had accidental!? become »o

prevenfei. 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.

A pleasant surprise Darty w.is gtven on Saturday
n. !iu:_- to W. H. Luther and wife, at I'ioneer I!*:!,
by the Fioneer Association. '1 he event wu the oc
casion of the twtnty-n'fth anniversary of their wed
ding. The Pioneer*, who understand him to pli*y
jokea and enjoy them, arranged this affair with con
siderable skill. About 4 o'cli>( k»n Saturday after
no m A. H. Powers, President of the Society, re
quested Mr. Luther to prepare the hall, as the
young Pioneers intended ti vive a party that even
inc It is needles* to say that eyery detail was care
fully attended to. During the evening the Direct
ors of the Association, si which Mr. Luther U a
member, held a rue-tint in the readiDg room.
In the mean lime Borne ladies called
on Mrs. Luther, and persuaded her to ace ref-ary
them 1 1 the hall, which *-he ciid, ra'her reluctantly.
The Director, who at that time was in another room,
was sent for to J-jiu the pleisurc-eeekers. Poth
n m being present, Mr. Powers cal'ed to order, and
said th-it thii jear ha«l been one of surprises,
socially, to many of the old Pioneers, and as usual,
they had one in store for auother member of their
family and bid estimable wife. Mr. Luther and
wife, who up to this time had no knowledge that the
surprise was intended for them, were called upon
and informed that tho Pioneers and their invited
euests had -Sjembled to celebrate their silver wed
dinir, and 4i:»d adopted this method as a fitting recoß.
ration ol the occasion. The evening «as then de
voted to iramep, dancing and other aOiUscmenU.
During tlie ft-ttivities refreßhments wtre nerved.
Mr. and Mis. Luther were the recipiants of some
hands-me and appropriate presents, amonit which
was a silver tc» tet from the Pioneer Association.

" PHILOSOPHER " PICKETT.
Incidents In the Career of a Well-Known
Cai.fornlan.
On last Thursday night C. E. 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- '

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.
