While he was engaged with his work some portion of his clothing caught upon a revolving shaft, around which ho was whirled several times. Instinctively he seized hold of tho shaft with his hands, and being a man of considerable strength his grash so obstructed tho revolutions of the shaft that the belt was thrown oil' and he was saved. By this accident Mr. Freeston sus tained bruises mid cu's of a severe, though not dangerous character, one of his turns he came in contact with a revolving eniory wheel, which scraped the skin from his right side, and left a very sore, raw place, was removed ut once to his home, and furnished with proper medical atten dance, which left him in a fuir way for recovery & At McLear s ■ Ill ■ lie Fou tue W. & R Co. 'a Consider ation.— -Would il not be a capital move if the Wilmington & Heading Railroad authorities would induce the Phila delphia & Reading Company to lease their road and take il under its control and management the same as it has done the Reading & Lehigh Road ? They would be the gaineis by such a transfer, and then the entire line would he a much busier highway than now. I do not say that the W, & It. Road is not under good management now, but I think it would be a great benefit to all concerned if the Reading Railroad would take hold of it.

President Grant made use of a drun ken federal judge and of federal bayo nets to deprive Louisiana of tbe Demo cratic Governor and Legislature of the people's choice in 1872. President Grant made use of General isheridan ami federal bayonets to prevent the re covery of her self-government of Lou isiana in the election of a Demociatic Legislature iu 1874. The Hepublican majority of the Federal Senate now uuilea with President Grunt to defraud Louisiana of half lier rightful represen tation in that body. For while nobody pretends now that any Legislature which sent the negro gambler Pinch hack to Washington was a lawful Leg islature, nevertheless the Senate defers till December the rejection which is then unavoidable, so that Pinchback may meanwhile be placated by getting I» is price for consenting to the election of Gruul's brother-in-law Casey, or Kellogg, and Louisiana constrained to accept Casey or Kellogg rather than Pinchback or nobody. The political party never existed among a free peo ple which could survive such ropoti tion of such intolerable infamies.— World. SPECIAL NOTICES.

Tho total loss by the Port Jcrvia flood of Wednesday is now reported at $288,000, divided as follows : Erie Railway bridge, $70,IKK) ; Barrett's bridge,$45,000; Basket bridge, $13,000; individual losses at Port Jervis $60,000; lumber swept away, $75,00 ; damage above the town, $20,000. it is believed the losses below Port Jervis will add $100,000 to tbe aggregate, making the flood the most disastrous that ever was known in the valley of the upper Delaware. There was no change yesterday i the condition of tho Susquehanna at Pitlston and WiJkesbarrc, the weather lining too cold and the ice remaining tirui. The Lehigh Railroad track was still covered with ice, which prevented the running of trains beyond, and it was believed that if no further rise in tho river should occur, ten days would be required to clear the track. Many of the mines near Pittston have ceased work, there being no route left for the shipping of coal. Much apprehension was felt lest another flood should come and prove more dangerous than the last. n WEATHER REPORT Washington, Mardi 19.—1 A. M. PROBABILITIES.
