The numerous accideuts ou railroads the track. This is rnnuing too much risk. Now that a number of lives have keen lost by badly constructed roads, we hope that more care will be taken in the future. It would cost less to build cul verts large enough at once. One acci dent may cost live times tbe cost of a culvert, even where no lives may be lost, and only injury to cars sustained. Stokes, the least guiltv of the Morton fraudulent stock combination, Is in the In sane Asylum; the chief of the offenders is held In »10,0«) bail as a witness, while Huhn and Nagle, two guilty subordinates, are required to give #50,0U0 security to an swer for tbe crime. That sort of crooked ness will pretty certainly straighten itself somewhere around the altar of justice. Philadelphia Times. If there had not been an entire want of equity and honor around the "altar of justice" in Philadelphia so scandalous a conspiracy against tho West Philadelphia Passenger Railway Company could not have existed so long as it did. It is dif ficult to understand how all the parties to the transaction should have maintained secreay so long. Ami one of the most astonishing things is that the press of Philadelphia, including the Times, should deal so gently with all of the parties con cerned, and be so tender in its allusions to Morton, the head rascal to the fraud. After this scoundrel has thus disgraced tho name of his grand father with so little impunity, the people may well ask, "who can we trust ?" Id this cas« mure shares of stock were stolen and sold bj Morton, the President of the Company, with the knowledge of the Treasnrer, Secretary, aud several other persons, than all the stockholders held beside, and yet no punishment is meted out to him, and his confederates iu crime are walking th e streets under bail. What now is to prevent the officers of the great railroad lines from doing Morton did? He was a "grandson of a signer," and that was enough to give him credit, it seems, in Philadelphia. He docs not seem to be hurt in Phila delphia, and if he could fall from high a position as the signer" without feeling any more than he does, why should the great railroad kings fear to fall? To come down to plain facts, is not there real danger that a million or two of dollars for defence would wipe out all fear of legal punisj ment in the courts of Pennsylvania? Under the circumstances is there any wonder that stock should be low while tne banks are full of money? SO grandson of a Patterson* Sent F .—The requisition for honest John Patterson, U. S. Senator from South Carolina, was received at Washington on Friday, by Chief-Justice Cartter, of the Supreme Court of the Dis trict, to whom it w i sent under the law covering such cases. The arrest of Mr, Pat terson by tbe United States Marshal ol tile District will probably be made to-morrow, when he will be brought before the Chief Justice for on examination of the requisi tion and accompanying indictment. The papers, however, which have been submit ted are believed to be defective, and will probably he returned to be rectified, and in the meantime Patterson, will beheld. he is not surrendered before tho Senate meets t on Monuay week) or even If he is discharged, he announces his demanding of the Senate intention of a committee ol investigation into the charges made against him. According to precedent this will be granted him. It is to be hoped that the reports of a peaceable settlement in Cuba are true. The cruel war which has lasted so many years has destroyed a great part of the island, and it has long been feared that i would continue uutil every plantation had been overran. 1! If recent reports may be believed the insurgents are at last desir ous of peace, while the King of Spai rumor says, is ready to graut terms which an honorable settlement based. on can he The Midland Kail way, of England, in which the recently reported frauds have occurred, is oue of the greatest English railways, its stocas and bonds amounting to $2*0,000,000. ~ that the frauds aro The latest reportsshow not yet by any means serious as at first reported, and are not of a character to affect either its stock or bond issues or its financial stability. Dr. Thompson, Senator Morton's phy sician, says that he will never be able use crutches or caues again, even should he be able to take his seat in the Senate. to A POSSIBLE DEMOCRATIC MAJO I RITT IN THE SENATE. Onr Wwhinçton correspondent con eludes bi* last letter to the Gatette as follows : ' The subject of the organization of the W'" ia " m 8 "' teMe| y interesting as tbe time approaches. It is probable | that the Republicans will have a bare majority, but the minority will be, at J J J J , best, so small ana so rent and paralyzed P~1 antagonisms and antipathy towards the policy of the Administration that many believe it will be ineffective for any consistent or persistent Republi can policy. Mr. Conkling has cried ha voc and let loose the dogs of war, and Mr. Blaine will not be outstripped by Lis hereditary rival in opposition to the Sondern or Civil Service policy of the Adminislralion . The lime Western Vul j g paralyzed at home, and in spite of tne favorable press reports in regard u> Lis improved health, the opinion of the better informed here is that he will re turn to the Senate no more. If he should die, a Democrat would of course be ap pointed by Governor W illiams, most pro ^^ly Judge Holman or Hon. Daniel Voorhees. In the absence of the cham pionshiD of senator Morton the hopes of such candidates as Kell and Corbin, of South P*e ground. Sharon, of Nevada, Is look ing after his silver mines, and will not reac [, here until December. Senator Spencer is in the Black Hills, with a new wife, growing up with the country, spec ulating in gold mines, and 1 believe far more anxious to be returned to the Sen ate from tbe future State of Wyoming than to longer misrepresent Alabama in that body. Patterson, .of South Caroli na, is under a cloud aud in constant fear of a warrant trorn Governor Hampton ; and, all chances considered, it will not be surprising if the Democrats should have a majority in the Senate of the 45th Con gress. ogg, of Louisiana, Carolina, fall to C. A. Ö. The Storm. The great storm of Thursday was more disastrous than at first supposed, among its consequences beiDg serious loss of bu mau life. A11 excursion train returning in the evening from the Pennypacker re union, plunged into a "wash-out" in a high embankment near Phœuixville, Pennsylvania, and about eight persons wer« killed and over fifty injured. By the disaster on the Belvidere Railroad, near Milford, N. J., three persons drown ed, and it is feared that two others per ished. The train lies in the river some distance off shore, where it was washed by the torrent from the creek. Disasters also occurred on the North Pennsylvania and Wilmington Northern railroads, an engineer being killed in each case. The storm was very severe in Delaware bay, on Long Island Sound, ou the Hudson river, along the New Eugland coast, and on the Lake«. In the Sound the steamer Rocky Point, aud will probably be a total wreck. Her passengers were aaved. Massachusetts grounded Judge Hill Dylug From the Atlanta Constitution, At about 6 o'clock on Thursday even ing, while the Superior Court was in ses sion in Knoxville, Crawford county, .Judge Barnard Hill, the presiding .Judge died on tlia bench. A criminal trial had just been concluded, and the jury had re turned a verdict ofguilty. They neglect ed to give the value of the goods stolen, and Judge Hill told them tliat they had best retire and supply this part of the verdict. They went out, and soon after ward an attorney looked up aud Judge Hill's head thrown back on his chair, a deathly pallor overspreading countenance. Friends rushed to hi but, away l r . Sun. the Ben ch. hia with an easy gasp, his spirit passed y, and he sat dead on the bench.—A T . A fast freight train on the Delaware and Hudson Railroad was thrown from the track by a misplaced switch, near Melrose Station, Pa., on Thursday night. Patrick Riley, the engineer was scalded to death ; Michael Merrick, the fireman, was crushed to death under the tender, and a brakeman named Jones injured. It is believed the switch was tampered with by strikers. Samuel Owens killed hia brother-in-law "Con" Montgomery, at McKinney's Sta tion, Ky., yesterday. Logan .Montgom ery, brother of the deceased, afterwards made Owens. The U. S. Grand Jury of San Francisco has found two indictments against H*. B.
