THE MINNESOTIAN. Daniel Webster. The following sketch of the early history o Mr. Webster, from the Tribune, will be read with interest : Mr. Webster’s has been a lofty though not entirely successful career. Descended from an ancestry originally Scotch, but for a time resi dent in England, which migrated to this coun try very soon after the Landing at Plymouth, he was born in Salisbury, (now Bos'cawen.) New Hampshire, on the 18th of January, 1782. His life has therefore been extended over nine months beyond the seventy years allotted to man. His earliest known projenitor was Thomas Webster, who settled at Hampton, near the sea-coast of New Hampshire, as early as 1630. The Websters were generally farmers and (on occasion) soldiers, were fair-haired, of light complexion, and slender frame. The Statesman inherited his sturdy frame, dark fea tures. black hair, Ac.. from his father's mother, daughter of Rev. Stephen Batchelder. and a woman of remarkable force of character. His own mother was also a woman of rare intellec tual powers. Ilis father after fighting well for his King and country in the French and Indian Wars, obtained, after the Peace of 1763. a grant of land in Salisbury, at the head of the Merri mac river, and there built his log cabin and commenced his clearing in 1761—the fartherest north of any British subject in New England.— The log house long since vanished, as did the frame one built beside it, in which Daniel Web ster was born ; Out the farm remains in the family, and the trees which shaded his boyhood and the well whence he quenched his thirst, still wooed him with their well-remembered at tractions. on each recurring visit, to the last. Young Webster received his education in the common schools of his native town, in the fa mous Phillips' Academy, at Exeter, in the family of Rev. Samuel Woods, of Boseawen, and at Darmouth College, to which his father resolved unsolicited to send him—a great un dertaking for a poor farmer, in what was still almost a pioneer settlement. His brother Ezekiel was also sent a little later to Dart mouth, imposing ott them both, as well as on their parents, the necessity of observing a most rigorous economy. But they were both carried creditably through, and more than justified the fond hopes of their parents. Ezekiel became a lawyer of eminence, but fell dead (of disease of the heart) while arguing a cause in Concord. N. H., in 182!>. Daniel entered college in 1797, and gradua ted in 1801, spending the next year as Princi pal of an Academy at Frveburg, Maine, (or 8330 per annum, which he saved entire, earn ing his livelihood by copying legal records.— After spending a few months in the law office of a Mr. Thompson, in Salisbury, he went to Boston, and entered as a student the office of Christopher Gore, an eminent lawyer and statesman, #hcre he made rapid proficiency, and was admitted to the bar in March 1805. Returning to New Hampshire, he declined a proffered Clerkship in the Court of which his father was now a Judge ; and as his father was visibly declining, lie settled beside him at Bos cawen. till the old man’s death, which occurred in April. 1801. The next year, Daniel relin quished his business to his brother Ezekiel and removed to Portsmouth, and was married the following summer to Grace Fletcher, daughter of Rev. Mr. Fletcher, of Hopkinton, N. 11. By her he had four children—Grace, Fletcher, Julia and Edward—of whom Fletcher alone survives. Edward died in Mexico, in 18-17. while serving as a Major of the Massachusetts Volunteers. Julia became Mrs. Appleton, and died in Boston some years ago. Mr. Webster lived nine years in Portsmouth, and was thence elected to Congress in Novem ber, 1812, and re-elected in 1814. New Hamp shire then elected by General Ticket, and we believe Mr. Webster uniformly led the Federal Ticket. His talents were widely known to be extraordinary, though he had tilled no public station, when he was first elected at thirty years of age. In 1816. Mr. Webster removed to Boston, and devoted himself to the practice of law. In 1820 he served as a Presidential elector, and as a member of the Convention which revised the Constitution of Massachusetts in 1821. He was elected to Congress from Boston in 1822, and was re-elected in 1824 and 1836. with scarcely a show of opposition. Mr. Webster was in the latter year chosen a Senator of the l uited States. He continued to serve in the Senate until 1840, when he was called to the tirst place in Gen. Harrison s Cabinet, where he remained until 1842. On the 4th of March, 1845, Mr. Webster returned to the Senate, and July 11th. 1830, he was called by Mr. Fillmore to fill once more the tirst place in the Cabinet, which he retained to the last. In closing the sketch, condensed as above from the Tribune, Mr. Greeley thus speaks of Death's doings : “ Clay, Calhoun, Webster —tlie mighty trio who for forty years have tilled so large a space in the eye and in the heart of the Nation—have all departed. It seems but yesterday that we saw them sitting together in the Senate, vigor ous in mind, apparently firm in health—and now they have passed from among us forever. When siiall our country look upon their like again?” Postal Convention between tiie United States and Pkissia. —We are authorized to say that a Postal Convention has been concluded between the United States and Prussia, by which a closed mail is hereafter to be regularly exchanged lietween the offices of New York and Aix-la-Chapelle, and Boston and Aix-la- Chapelle, via London and Ostend, the most ex peditious route to the Continent. A uniform postage rate of thirty cents, pre-payment is to lie optional in both countries, has been agreed upon as regards all letters addressed from any part of the United States to any part of the Gcrmnn-Austrian Postal Union, (embracing Prussia, and all the other German States, anil the whole of the Austrian Empire,) and from any part of the German-Anstrian Postal Union to any part of the United States. Newspapers sent in this mail from one country to the other ore to be pre-pnid six cents each, this being also the full postage. Provision is likewise made for correspondence to anil from countries beyond the Postal Union, and the rates of post age established, pre-payment ot which, in most cases, is also to be optional on either side; and it is expected the arrangement will go fully into effect on or about the first of next month. In the meantime, postage tables, containing particular instruction on the subject, are to be sent to the postmasters generally throughout the United States. This Convention between the United States and Prussia bears the signature of the late Postmaster General Ilall. to whose energy and devotion to duty, joined to the unfaltering per severance and attention of the enlightened and much-esteemed Prussian Minister, Baron Gcrolt, the public is mainly endebted for this important improvement in the postal communication be tween the United States and the Continent of Europe. —.Yationat lutelligencer. Miss Elizabeth Duvall has been appointed by the Postmaster-General postmistress at David sonville, Anne Arundel county, Maryland, vice N. D. Duvall, deceased. The lady appointed performed the duties of the office for several months previous to the death of her father with such acceptability that the whole neighborhood unites —and another candidate declines—in fa vor of her permanent appointment. —*Yational Intelligencer. Office—Corner of Jackson and Fifth Streets. Startling Revelations In Counterfeiting. An old bank plate engraver, has been per mitted to examine the twenty one bank note plates recently recovered from a gang of coun terfeiters. and gives the New 1 ork~Express the result of his observation as follows: The great majority of counterfeit money is ori ginal engraving. The time is fast approaching when our beautiful paper money will be regard ed with contempt, and disgust. If the same hands that are employed in engraving the ori ginal. can, by any trick, be employed in produ cing the counterfeit, how can we tell the genu ine from the spurious? A man may be well ac quainted with the work of Ilawdou, Wright A Hatch, and may take a five hundred dollar Trea sury note with him. their genuine work upon it. and' yet, it may be a counterfeit! . A man may be familiar with the works of Casilear, of Dan fortb & Co., and may take counterfeit notes with their identical icork upon them, and yet no blame can be attached to any of these gentle men, because the patch-work and die system of manufacturing them, renders it perfectly easy for counterfeiters to obtain the work of any man who engraves a die or transfirs a bank-plate.— In my late publication, I have sounded the first alarm, aud all the modes of fraud there revealed are proved to have been in practice by couuter fe.ters in Philadelphia. Through the kindness of Mayor Gilpin, I have been permitted to examine the twenty-one coun terfeit plates lately recovered ; togethi r with a vast amount of counterfeit materials which has accumulated there in the course of a few years past. By far the largest portion of them proved to be genuine works of our best artists! Casi lear, Durand. Burton A: Edmonds. Danfortb. Un derwood & Co., Murray. Draper. Fairman A Co., A., B. A C., Durand, Wright A Co., and other firms are represented among these implements of fraud. The case with which a bank-plate can be altered to represent one bank, after an other, through the entire country, is plainly il lustrated there. The vast amount of spurious money which can be manufactured by very sim ple means, is truly alarming. The counterfeit ers had obtained one steel-plate of the Burton A Edmonds, and had erased the title in order to print the blank. They had a small copper plate which was engraved by a master hand the titles of eight banks in Wall street. Phoenix Bank, Union Bank. Manhattan Company. Ac. Now, by means of these two plates, they might have manufactured, by the process of printing above, counterfeit money to the amount of three hun dred thousand dollars, on eight dificrent banks —all the engraving upon which, would have been executed by our best artists! The twenty one plates recovered from the counterfeiters, were capable, with a trifling addition, of manu facturing spurious money to the amount of mill ions. The electrotype process of multiplying vignettes, and all engraved plates had been re sorted to. One copper plate twenty dollar note on the Merchant’s Bank. Providence, had been composed of separate pieces, soldered together. Thus, the counterfeiters vary the relative posi tions of the detached pictures at pleasure ; and make a solution of sulphate of copper which might be contained in a quart measure, take the plate of our engravers’ transfer press, and other expressive machinery. What uow is to be done ? By the present method of engraving bank notes, an ordinary mechanic stamps the plates by means of dies. It is thereiore for tlie inter act of the engravers to continue the use of those dies, and the more onr notes are counterfeited and altered the more their business will be ex tended. Our new banks are eager to get into operation—the dies facilitate the engraving— and though the notes as soon as issued, are al tered, or counterfeited, to the great annoyance and loss of community, the banks themselves seldom lose anything. Indeed, some of them do not scruple to declare that they made money by it. What then is to be done ? F’irst let the Le gislature appoint a committee to enquire into this matter—let them determine the best meth od of engraving a note to prevent these frauds; anil then let the necessary law be added to our model General Banking Law. compelling all bank notes to be engraved in future according to the best method, without regard to the time required or the cost of the work. Let an in spector l>e appointed, who is a thorough practi cal artist, to carry the law ito effect, anil give the people the protection which they need. — When our State has once set the example, other States will follow ; and in the course of a veri few years, we shall seldom hear of counterfeit notes, and never hear of alterations in the de nomination, which is a species of fraud against which all our counterfeit detectors say 'no gen uine bill is exempt.’ But I fear lam trespass ing too much upon your columns at this season of political interest. At some future period. I will, u ith your permission, endeavor to explain the rules by which to engrave a bank note, in order to give the greatest amount of protection against forgery. There is a laiv governing this matter, which is no less certain than the law of gravitation.—A'. Y. Express. Woman's Affection.— Conrad Schill enlisted as a German soldi) r. and served the term of years required by the laws ot that land to qual ify him for promotion. He gradually mounted the ladder of fame and honor, and imbibing from nature, as he advanced, the doctrine of Equali ty, readily espoused the cause of the Liberal Party in the recent Revolutions that have con vulsed Europe. Owing to this course, he was compelled to flee his native land and find a home in America. II)' chose onr city as his abiding place, but alas! the sudden retorsion of his for tunes weighed heavily on his mind, and ere long he was a subject for the Lunatic Asylum. He had formed an attachment in his native laud, for a young and accomplished lady, and that love was reciprocated ; but to save his life his haste had prevented him from bidding her good-bye, or advising her to follow him. But she. who had found “a foe worthy of her steel,” was true to her affianced, and on learning of his arrival in this country, immediately followed him. Her anticipations of their meeting were most rapturous, and oh! imagine her horror on learning that he was insane! But she forsook him not, and for many long months she has watched for the return of his reason. She was often permitted to see him while confined at Columbus—the physicians hoping that such a course would aid his recovery, but in vain.— Some two months since he was returned to this city as incurable, yet his guardian angel forsook him not. At her earnest solicitation a friend signed the necessary papers to keep him out of the Commercial Hospital, and she administered to his wants. A few days since, the friend saw fit to deliver him up again to the authorities, but she is yet with him, visiting frequently, en deavoring to speak ami look consciousness into him, aud is about having him permanently re moved. Her love is undying, and if Abelard aud Heloise deserved a monument of stone, this unhappy couple should have one of solid gold. —Cincinnati Gazette. A Cake as is a Cake. —Gilmour's Mammoth Cake, now on exhibition in the Refreshment Saloon of the Maryland Institute, weighs about four thousand pounds , and contains one hun dred elegant gold rings, of the best manufac ture, a large number of which are set with Em eralds, Rubies, Pearls, Opals, JTurquoise, Cor nelians, Amethysts, Ac., Ac.; 7 kegs of butter, 2 barrels of sugar, 2 barrels of flour, 50 pounds of spice, 12 gallons of brandy, 250 dozen of eggs, 4 barrels of currants. 40 boxes of raisins, and 16 boxes of citron. It is now retailing at 50 cents per pound to visitors. John G. Saxe, Esq., the poet editor and ac complished lawyer, is reported to be so ill at Burlington, that but slight hopes of his recovery are entertained by his friends. Fortunes made by Advertising, From a small pamphlet, entitled “The Art of making Money.” an extract has been taken, and is going the rounds of the provincial press, pointing out the facility of making immense sums, by the simple process of continuous ad vertising. Doubtless large sums have been. are. and will be made by such a system by certain persons of ability, who no doubt would make their way in the w orld, if called upon lo pl?.y different parts on the great stage oflife ; but to suppose that men in general must, as a matter of course, acquire wealth by such means, is as absurd as to imagine that all the penniless and shoeless of London are capable of rising to the dignity and wealth of an alderman or the Lord Mayor of London simply by reading the “Young Man's Best Companion.” Money in not so easi ly made as the writer of the article referred to would lead people to suppose; if it be so, few need be poor. But to our text: fortunes made by advertising. Undoubtedly the greatest man of the day as an advertiser is Hollow ay, who expends the enormous sum of twenty thousand pounds annually in advertisements alone ; his name is not only to be seen in every paper and periodical published in the British Isle, but as if this country was too small for this individu al's exploits, he stretches over the whole of In dia, having agents in all the different parts of the upper, central, and lower provinces of that immense country, publishing his medicaments in the Hindoo, Oordoo. Goozralee, and other native languages, so that the Indian public can take the pills and use his ointment according to geiural directions, as a Cockney w ould do with in the sound of Bow Bells. We find him again at Hong Kong and Canton, making his medi cines known to the Celestials by means of a Chinese translation. We trace him from thence to the Sandwich and I’hillippine Islands, win re he is circulating his preparation in the native languages. At Singapore he has a large depot; his agents there supply all the islands in the Indian Seas. His advertisements are published in most of the papers at Si dney, Hobart Town, Launceston, Adelaide, l’ort 1 'Lilip. and indeed in almost every tow n of that vast portion of tbe Br.tisli Empire. Returning homewards, we find his Fills and Ointment selling at Valparaiso, Lima. Callao, aud other ports in the Pacific.— Doubling the Horn, we track bim in the Atlan tic—Mont Video, Buenos Ayres, Santos, Rio de Janeiro, Ilabia, and Pernambuco ; he is adver tising in those parts in Spanish and Portuguese.

Remarkable Feat of an Engine Man.—A Paris correspondent of the Washington Repub lic, relates the following occurrence as having taken place on the French Northern Railroad. It is an example of the advantages that some times arise from meeting opposition with a bold front : The passengers upon the Northern Railroad narrowly escaped destruction some days ago.— A large cart, laden down by the weight of an enormous block of stone, bail become fastened in among the rails, and the efforts of the throe horses to disengage it were perfectly unavail ing. The whistle of the express train was heard in the distance. The wagoner, determined to save his horses at least, cut the reins and har ness and made off. The engineer saw the obstacle, reversed the steam and gave the signal lor the brakes. But the engine, which was a Crumpton, refused to obey, and the machinist saw the utter impossi bility of stopping it in time, so he put on the steam again, and drove the train with full force upon the terrible obstacle. The wagon was shivered to atoms, and the stone sent Hying in splinters for roils in all directions. The train was not thrown off'the track, aud the passenger* were unaware of any shock. They did not hear of the danger they hail run till they stopped at the next station. The engine was battered, but its vitality ivas not decreased. The engineer, whose coolness and decision saved the passen gers, is a Pole, anil will be the object of some tribute of gratitude from the company. If the poor house has any terrors for you nev er buy what you don't need. Before you pay throe cents for a jewsharp. ascertain whether you can't make just as pleasant a noise by whistling, for which nature furnishes the ma chinery. And, before yon pay seven dollars for a figured vest, young man, find out whether your lady love would not be just as glad to see you in a plain one, that cost just half the money. If she wouldn't, let her crack her own walnuts, and buy her own clothes. When you see a man paying five dollars for a Frenchified toy that a philosophic Yankee baby will pull to pieces in live minutes, ten chances to one that he will live long enough to realize hoiv many cents there are in a dollar ; and if he don't, lie's sure to bequeath that privilege to his widow. When a man nsks you to buy that for which you have no use, (no matter how cheap it is,) don't sal ves, until you are sure that some one else w ants it at an advance.

The recent discoveries of gold in Canada are making some noise in the newspapers. We met yesterday an intelligent gentleman, recently from the mines, who exhibited about two dollars’ worth of coarse gold, which he said was the re sult of the washings from two pans of dirt. Our informant is not engaged in gold digging, but had visited the mines from Yankee curiosity. He states that quite a large number of persons, in the employ ot the proprietor oft he mines, are successfuly engaged in surface washing. These mines are situated on the river Dupont, near the junction with the Chaudiere. some forty miles from Quebec, and near the Kennebec Road. About five miles from this place, ot the Rapids of the Chaudiere River, there is said to be a very rich vein of gold-bearing quartz. Our informant states that sixty dollars worth of gold w as recently broken from the surface of a piece of rock in this vein weighing only thirty eight pounds. He alto states that some 50or!»l) years ago a lump of pure gold, worth about 6300, was picked up in the vicinity of these dis coveries. and that two or three years ago seve eral small lumps wue found, some of which were exhibited at the Worlds Fair in Loudon. It has been known for several mouths, that there were rich deposits of gold on the banks of the Chau dicre and its tributaries, but negotiations for the sale ol the mining priveleges there have de layed active mining till within two or three weeks past. Pittsbcrgii, Oct. 26. —From passengers who ' arrived here last evening, ive learn that a seri ous accident occurred at Portage, on the Rail road. As Adams A Co.'s Express car, heavily laden, was ascending plane number 8, and had arrived just at the top of the plane, which is twelve hundred yards long, the car unhitched and descended with frightful rapidity. Alarm was given at the loot of the plane, in time for the passengers in two cars below to es cape ; the third car was filled with ladies, who became so alarmed that tin y could not get out. but before the descending car reached them, the engine to w hich the cars were attached, was re versed, aud the train started back at a Hying rate; but the engineer became alarmed and jumped ott; and left the train to dash on ungui ded to plane number 9. Fortunately the car in w hich the ladies were, became detached, and the i locomotive dashed on alone, and down the plane. I w here it was smashed to pieces. I When the Express car struck the cars from j w hich the passengers bad escaped, the force of the crash was so great, that both the Express aud baggage cars were completely demolished, and goods scattered in every direction, and crushed the passenger cars very much. One person had his ankle broken. Col. Van Swartwout jumped from the Express train and was much injured. Tf.iuiirle Sinrwr.ECK.—We regret to have to j record the total loss of the ship Mobile, Captain Tarbox, of Bath, Maine, and for New Orleans from Liverpool, 27th ultimo, with a crew of twenty-lhree hands and sixty passengn s, ull of whom, with the exception of nine, perished. — The Mobile sailed from the Mersey, Tuesday morning, with a fair wind, and made good pro gress throughout the day. At midnight the captain went below, leaving the second mate in charge, with orders to steer ivest-south-west, and to cail him (the captain) at two o'clock, or sooner, if the weather became threatening. At midnight tbe w ind was blowing a fresh breeze from east-north-cast, with a heavy sea, which soon increased to a violent gale. On the Captain’s coming on deck at two o'clock, lie found the ship on a lee-shore, from which it was impossible to extricate her, the second mate having, it is said, mistaken his orders, and kept the ship on a west-north-west course. At half past two she struck heavily on Arkloiv Bank, and shortly afterward* commenced to break up. j Efforts were made to launch the boats, but iu : consequence of the high sea they were fruitless, j A few hours after the vessel struck the weather i moderated, and at eleven o'clock oil Thursday morning, two schooners hove in sight, and im mediately bore down to the wreck. One of them bound to Glasgow, took off four sailors, and the ] only surviving passengi r, and the other took ; the remaining four sailors, and landed them at ; Wexford, whence they have been forwarded to j Liverpool. Captain Tarbox and all hands exerted them selves to the utmost to save the ship, until one j after another they were washed aw ay and per-! ished. A Straxok Playmate.—A few days since, a 1 hulv of our town narrated to us the following curious incident, w hich she derived from a near relative, the mother of a bright little boy not a year old. Tbe child was one day seated near the edge of a porch, a table-spoon with which to amuse itself being placed in its hand. After a short time the luotlu r happened to look to wards the babe, and perceived tliat it was lean-; ing over the porch, and cautiously extending the spoon towards the ground, tin u suddenly withdrawing it with a hearty laugh each time it drew its hand back. This lnaneuvre the in fant repeated frequently ; its mother supposing 1 it to be playing with a kitten, paid no particn- \ lar attention to it for the moment. At length ! the child's frequent burst* of laughter, and its I prolonged enjoyment of the sport in which it j was engaged, induced the mother to approach j and look over its should) r to see w hat it was that excited its glee so much. Great was -her | astonishment and horror on observing that the playmate of her little boy. during nil this time, | bail been a large anil dangerous Snake, which, with mouth gaped widely open, aud protruding j tongue, was coiled up in the attitude peculiar j to that reptile when about to strike, and had been darting at the spoon, (it is supposed in play) each time when extended towards it.— The mirth of the infant was created by success in baffling the attempt of the reptile to reach its plaything. The alarmed mother, not daring to leave the spot, hurriedly called her husband, who succeeded in approaching the serpent and i despatching it with an axe. —.Madison County j (Mo.) liecord.

Trial fcb ABDrorrox- Singular Case.~- The October Term of tbe Court of Over and Termi ner commenced its session on the 4th inst, at Genesee, the Hon. T. A. Johnson presiding. The case of The People agt. Reuben Lee wag tried. This was a singular case, the circum stances of which, as wc hove been informed, arc as follows; It seems that Lee resided at a house of a Mr. Murray, who lives in the town of Nnnda, and was attending school with Elizabeth, an only child of Mr. M.’s, who was then a few days un der fourteen years of age. That on the 21st of December, 1850, Lee and Elizabeth started for school together, ns usual, but instead of going to school, they proceeded to Bushrille, a dis tance of some six miles, ond a-ere there marri ed. Their absence was not discovered until late in the afternoon, w hen they were pursued by Mr. Murray and a hired man. Thev were found at tlie bouse of a sister of Lee. Mr. Mur ray attempted to take his daughter by force, but Lee resisted, alledging that she was his wife, aud he had a right to her. After a long altercation Lee consented that she should be ta ken under the charge of a third person, for a few days until matters could be arranged. Ac cordingly she was taken away, and the next day she was surrendered to her father by the man who had charge of her. Soon after Lee was arrested on a charge of abduction, which was made out by tbe oath of Elizabeth, who represented that Lee had com pelled her by threats and menaces to leave home with biin by force and compulsion, against her will. An indictment was accordingly found again.-i him for unlawfully taking her against her will, and by force compelling her to marry him, and also for taking her away from her father w ithout his consent, for tbe pur pose of marriage, she being under tbe age of fourteen years. The first charge would subject him to imprisonment in the State prison for not less than ten years. The other subjects him to a much more lenient punishment, being impris onment in the County Jail not exceeding one year, or a fine not exceeding one thousand dol lars or both such fine and imprisonment. There were many strange and singular circumstances connected with tlie case. The defence set up was that the girl was very fond of Lee. and went with him of her own consent, that she even proposed tlie elope ment herself, that there was no force or menace used to compel her to go : that the girl was compelled by her father to testify against Lee. This defence so far succeeded tliat he was dis charged from the first count in the indictment, but as he could not prove tlie consent of the father or mother, the jury found him guilty of taking her away from her father for the pur pose of marriage without his consent, she being under the age of fourteen years. —Albany Reg. A Young Emigrant. —Not long since we w itnessed at the steamboat dock in this city, a little incident worthy of passing notice, and il lustrating the familiaradage that “truth is of ten stranger than fiction.” An anxious moth er had for several days been eagerly await ing the arrival of a little daughter about five years of age. from the “Emerald Isle.” where, for some reason, this her youngest child had been left when an infant. The little giri had been put on board a ship at Liverpool, in charge of the Captain, who on his arrival at Quebec, procured her passage on a St. Law rence steamer to Montreal. A kind-hearted gentleman of this city, knowing the circum stances, made arrangements with an obliging officer on one of tbe Lake Ontario steamers, to j see the little lone emigrant safe to Oswego.— ' After being disappointed several times, the foml mouther was again at tlie boat, and the moment the plank was thrown out. she rushed : on board and soon bad her darling child in her arm-'.

The alarm was commu nicated to the foot of the plane in time for the passengers iu two of the cars I cloiv to escape the collision, but the third car was filled with ladies, who were unable to gft out before the descending car reached the foot. The engineer of the locomotive was ordered to reverse the engine, which he did promptly, thus starting at a flying rate the car containing the bulios. The engineer now becoming alarm ed himself, jumped off. leaving the locomotive and passenger car dashing along the level to wards plane 9. Fortunately, the car became detached, permitting the locomotive to plunge down No. 9. by which it was demolished. When the express car struck the baggage car. the force was to great as to demolish both, and the goods were scattered in every direction, lint one person was materially injured, he bad his ancle broken.
