The most disastrous railroad accident since the Angola horror in 18GB, occurred at this station, sixty-live miles east of Cleveland, last night. A heavy lall of suow accompanied by a gale of wind, ring the day, and on all had drifted into huge movntains, and trains going either way were greatly delayed. The Pacifie ex press, which left Buffalo at twenty min utes past twelve 1*. M., and was due at this station at a quarter past nine, was over two hours late, and upon reaching the iron truss bridge which spans the Ashtabula River a few rods east of the station, the structure gane way, precipi tating the train of eight coaches and three baggage cars into the chasm. The bridge was an iron truss of 150 feet span, tne track being sixty feet above the water level. The train was drawn by two loco motives, the forward one breaking loose from the other as the bridge gave way, «and escaped on the very brink of the fearful gulf, the other engine following the quivering mass of humanity and crushing coaches and adding to the hor ror by the rushing steam that came from the crashed monster. had pr< «ides the snow NOItKOUNDKD BY FLAMES. Hardly had the falling coaches reached the ground after this fearful leap ere the flames hurst forth on all sidasand the bleeding and mangled bodies became food for the pitiless tire. The groans of the dying, the cries of the wounded and the agonizing appeals of those whose bare chances for life was being swallowed up by the flames rendered the scene one of unparalleled horror, the recolleation of which will never bo forgotten by those who lived through that hour of indiscrit able agony. There were 172 passengers ou the train at the time of the disaster, and of this number it is believed that about two-thirds were killed outright so mplete was the wreck, and so rapid and entire the destruction by fire that but thirty-four bodies have up to this time twenty four hours after the disaster been recovered, and it is believed that but few more will he found, others being en tirely consumed. Of the number recover ed but six have been identified, the bal ance being an indistinguished mass of charred and blackened flesh and bone, horrible to look upon and eutirely beyond identification. CO ASSISTANCE BY CITIZENS. The citizens of the village, about a mile distance from the station, headed by the Mayor, turned out en masse to the aid of the sufferers, and hotels and private residences were turned into temporary hospitals. Everything possible was done to alleviate the sufferings of the wounded These numbered fifty-nine, the greater portion of whom arc but slightly injured. Many of these proceeded on their journey this afternoon. AN INQUEST ON SUNDAY. An inquest will be held on Sunday, beginning at nine o'clock, by H.

The bridge was built eleven years ago, ami it is said that the erection of a truss bridge at this point was strenously op posed by the Chief Engineer,Mr. Charles Collins, but he was overruled by his su periors, and there rumors to the effect that the bridge has been regarded unsafe reports may, how founded, but the y bo developed at the TLe Louisiana Legislative siruggie. New Orleans, Dec. B0.—-While there is considerable excitement in regard to tlie meeting of the Legislature Monday, no one apprehends any collision from the f outlook to night. Gov. Kellogg is master of the situation. There are 150 metrop olitan policemen in tbe State House to night as a precautionary measure against its occupation by persons^claiming to be members of tbe Legislature and tlieir rrîûrxric. Vaii/wr» will ft«;« oiimit hiaoa friends. Kellogg will on.y admit those named on the list furnished by the re turning board, and none others, until the Legislature is organized. There are ru mors to-night that ex-Gov. Warmoth is trying to form a coalition with the demo crats to have himself elected Speaker over Hahn, Gov. Kellogg's condidate. War moth's movements in the matter are the subject of much speculation on both sides. Those members ofithe Legislature declar etl elected by the democratic conservative commmittee have been commissioned by Gov. McEnery: Their commissions bear the seal of Stale, which was captured by the democrats in the memorable con test of 1872. The congressional com mittees continued to-dayjtlie examination of witnesses pro and con In regard to in timidation. The President said to-night that no ap plication for the use of troops had been madeby Gov. Kellogg',either to the Presi dent or to any member of the cabinet.

And this being true and good law, if: the constitutionally in eligible Postmaster or Pope had sent his vote to Washington, where, on Radical theories, would have been the power of remedy? A few other persons have puzzled themselvcs over the notion that Watts, *i th0 Ä l ^iÄn b ^f?er re ?S"?. 0 h" cf the Postmastership after the 7th or November, and then, by a resignation of his "electorship," create a vacancy in the college which bis colleagues could fill, This is the precise notion which troubled Governor Lippitt, in Rhode Island, and led him verv nronerlv to ask the oninion . i £■.Lourt, which answered. "We think a Centennial Commission who "was a candidate for elector, and re "oeived a plurality of the votes, does not "by declining the office create such a va "cancy as is provided Ifor in General "Kt htiitP* pliant «r 11 «eetinn 7 Npotir n Statutes, chapter 11, section /, öecticn is as follows: "It any electors,chosen "as aforesaid, shall, after their said elec "tion, decline said office, or he prevented •'from any cause, from serving therein.

Before any "person can decline under this section he "must first elected and no peison can "be elected who is ineligible, or in other "words incapable of being elected. * * " # A man cannot resign that which he "is not entitled to and which lie has no right to occupy." This exactly lias been the view of the As to the Court fol are now, we World from the beginning, resignation, the Rhode Island lowed our reasoning in the Vermont case in these words; "We think Jtlie disqualifi "cation is not removed by the resignation "of the office of trust, unless the office is "resigned before the election. The lan guage Of the Constitution is that no per son'holding an office of trust or profit "under the United States shall be ap pointed an elector.' Under our law the "election by the people constitutes the "appointment. The duty of the Gover nor is to 'examine and count the votes, "and give notice to the electors of their "election.' He merely ascertains—he does "not complete—the appointment. A "resignation, therefore, atter.the election, "is too late to be effectual.' In respect to the election of the next highest candidate on the list, the Rhode Island Court differs from Governor Grover but since there is no provision in the Oregon statue for a new election, there would on this theory be but two electors from Oregon, as appeals fVom these last two points in the Rhode Island opinion: "We think the disqualification does not result in the election of the candi date next in vote,but in a failure to elect. Our statue (Gen. St., chap., 11, sec. 0) provides that 'if by reason of the votes being equally divided or shall not be an election up of so but but of a by aid otherwise, there of the number of electors to which the State may be en tited, the IGovernor shall forthwith convene the ueneral Assembly at Provi dence for the choice of electors, to fill such vacancy by an election in grand committee.' AVe think this provision convers the contingency which has hap pened, and that, therefore, the General Assembly in grand committee can elect an elector to fill up the number to which the State is entitled." In Rhode Island the law had provided for a failure to elect. In Oregon it had not so provided.— World. P. Gene ral News .

SOME OF THE *'00011801" NEWS ITEMS PUBLISHED BY the commercial. Editoii _I was considerably reading an editorial article in Saturday's Commercial, in which the oditor complacently claimed that his journal was the only one of the city pa pers which gave the facte of the current political news, "whether they are pleas ant or not to its Republican readers." M aTnll .„ mpnt ,r> am 1 usement 3"? occasioned not so muc !* by perusing the article, as by con trastmg it with some of the "facts" allu ded to, and published in another part of the same paper, under the caption of "Heavy Republican Gains." They read ^ follows : Special election was held In Indiana on Tuesday to nil a vacancy In the State Sen ate caused by the death of the former ln cumbent. The dlstric t in which the elec den was, composed of Madison and Dela 2f«!?i OOIU,t i e *i' h^ebeea demoeiMle,MedLi »ult« d<£»nfettu™n& Äon ware lm p or t»nt, unusual efl'orts were made by the Democrats to elect their candidate. The election of the Democratic candidate would have made the Senate Democratic by one majority, while the election of the Kepub 1,c » n candidate makes It Republican by 01,0 majority. It Is notable that this eleo tionwas in a section where some of the Democrats have been making threats oi violence in behalf of Tilden. At a special election on the 26th. for Joint Representative from Montgomery an d Parke counties, Indiana, to fill the y. a 2î ncy <' llusetl b y the death of Stoddard, Democrat, A. M.

Iu t]le , irst p&e, the Legislative Dis . . . ï . T \„,. .: * trict composed of Delaware and Madison counties is not a Democratic District, as witness the following result of the vote for Governor in October last : Delaware County, Rep. maj. Madison County, Dem. maj. loffJ SM; is A last not 0) 504 Republican maj in the District. Now the "facts" of the Commercial in this instance having been proven false, it remains for that journal to establish the extent of the Republican majority at the special election, in order to show how heavy were the gains which it claims were made by the Republicans. For, if one portion of its "facts" is so obviously false, a reasoning public will easily doubt, that Madison county changed from 850 Democratic to 100 Republican majority, or that the Republicans made any "heavy gains" whatever. Now for the second "fact." At the October election, the result of the vote for Governor in the counties of Parke and Montgomery, comprising the other Legislative District alluded to, was a» follows : Parke County, Rep. maj. Montgomery County, Dem. maj. 010 l: 433 Rep. maj. in the District, Here is a Republican majority of 483, anil yet according to the Commercial's "facts," the Republican majority at the recent special election was only 300, showing a Republican loss of 183. But. still more surprising, the Commercial's "facls" state that the result is "a Kepub lican gain of 580 over the October elec tion," proving conclusively that in this instance the Commercial's "facts," whether "pleasant or not to its Republi can readers," are barefaced lies, to the extent of 700 votes. Such, Mr. Editor, are the desperate devices resorted to by the Radical organs in vain attempts to manufacture public support of their nefarious attempt to steal the l*residency of the nation. Compare the results of the recent municipal con tests iu Worcester, Mass., Watertown, N. Y., and Tallahassee, Fla., where the Democracy were successful in the face of an adverse vote cast at the November election, and it will be readily seen that the drift of public opinion is fast settling against the national conspirators, and in favor of a settlement of our Presidential complication by the peaceful inaugura tion of the people's choice. Wilmington, Jan. 1, 1877. of en fill had in on a of was at two Facts. Bad Eliza IMultstou, New Oiileaxs, Dec. 29.—The Senate committee devoted the entire day to hear ing rebuttihg testimony in reference to Eliza Pi nkston's testimony. Some ten or twelve wituessses, white and colored tes tified to her notoriously bad conduct, be ing charged with infanticide, and leaving another child in a fence corner to die: also, that she had been discharged from two plantations because all the colored women refused to stay unless she was sent away; that she was a notorious pros titute, and unworthy of belief. Chairman Howe said he had long since come to the conclusion that nothing Elizasaidwasjto be believed merelybecause she said so; therefore there was no use in attempting to strengthen that opinion by such evidence. Mr. SauiLbury thought those charged by her with participation iu assaults should be allowed to contradict her. Mr. Howe said tlmy might; also that Eliza was wounded and Henry killed were facts not affected by her statement. Several witnesses testified to Alexander Brooks having threatened to kill Pinkston last May for beating him and biting hij finger off. Of on Ex-Senator Buckalew, of Pennsylvania _ recently published letter takes the ground that the electoral college of Lou isiana was an unlawful hotly and its votes void, because the returning board, which. In fact, appointed, was itself an unlaw ful body and plainly exceeded any juris diction which could be claimed for it under the laws of the State. That the action of that board was also fraudulent in purpose and in fact, and, therefore, invalid, Mr. Buckalew argues appears reasonably certain from tbe evidence.
