Serious Rioting on the Fourth Got. Geary Called On for Troops. Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc, THE ENGLISH RAILWAY ACCIDENT. Ad BxrursloB Train Wrecked on the J real Northern Kallroud A Rcene of Horror. From the London Telegraph, June 23. The facts of tbe terrible accident which oc curred near Newark early on Tuesday morning were so clear at first that little remains to be added to the accounts published yesterday. A general goods train from the north was proceed ing at the rate of sixteen to twenty miles per hour past Newark station, on the main up line of the Great Northern, when, on passing under Claypole Bridge, half a mile from the station, the axle of a six-ton truck belonging to the Man chester, 8heflield, and Lincolnshire Company, which formed part of the train, broke. Tbe im mediate consequence appears to have been to throw this truck with a jerk on to or across the up-line at the very moment when the Yorkohire excursion train of thirty carriages, conveying 500 or COO persons from London, ran up at the rate of between twenty and thirty miles an hour. The engine of the passenger train seems to have bounded off the line, struck the embank ment, rebounded towards the line without re gaining the rails, and to have dashed on with the train behind it, partly on and partly off the way, and under the bridge, the engine Itself, or one of the carriages, chipping a piece of stone off the buttress as it passed. For fifty yards or more, tbe eDgine, a locomotive of fifty tons weight, and the carriages immediately behind, jolted and bumped along off the metals. Then the engine, having left the way, darted off to tbe embankment on the left, struck the bank, and turned completely over. Nearly if not quite half the train was instantaneously thrown over and about the prostrate locomotive. The latter half, consisting of fifteen or sixteen carriages, had become detached, and remain on the rails. The whole of the other carriages were, by the force of the Impetus, driven over and into each other in one general wreck, piled high by the way side rather than scattered around. A brook ran at the foot of the small embankment of the rail way; and a green bank, surmounted by a thin thorn fence, marked the company's land oif from a small pasture-field adjoining. Here, at 1 -SO o'clock, the quiet of the summer morning in the country was broken by the horrid roar of the overturned engine and by the cries and groans of wounded persons. Naturally, the passengers in the after-part of the train were the first to give assistance, and to run off to Newark and scour the district for further aid. Adequate help, both 'surgical and mechanical, appears to have been gotten together as promptly as could be expected at so untimely an hour. Still the agony of the sufferers were in some cases necessarily protracted. It would appear that the track which caused the accident remained attached to the fore part of the train after it struck the excursion engine, and was drawn a distance of three hundred yards or more before the coupling gave way and it was thrown off, while several trucks in the rear of it were scattered about at the first shock, two being overturned into a pool of stagnant water on the London side of the bridge. It is fortunate that nothing particularly inllammable or explosive was in the goods train, and that the engine did not run full tilt against the buttress of the bridge, and so render the wreck of the train even more comnlete than it has been. Gangs of men are still employed in clearing away the debris, and as every train, whether to or from London, passes the spot, the carriage windows are filled with the heads of passengers endeavoring to get a glimpse of the scene of the accident. Mr. C. A. Wilson, music seller, of Leeds, acted with remarkable presence of mind. This gen tleman was seated in a compartment with, one lady and four gentlemen. He felt first a bump, saw the lamp snake, leit the train on the line. and the next instant found himself almost buried, he knew not where. Recovering breath and collecting bis faculties, he discovered that he was tightly held by a heavy weight of timber pressing on his ankle and hip. Overhead ana around him were broken planks and spliuters. A good deal of this he managed to clear away, but be was quite unable to extricate his leg. On all sides he heard the cries of the wounded. He could give no help, "but, with manly forti tude, he retrained irom calling lor assistance until others in greater danger than nimseit were relieved. The circumstances were trying, be cause, as Mr. Wilson lound, while Ins ankle was f a6t held, one knee was bent on tbe chest of a gentleman below him one who had sat in the same carriage, a mend whom be Knew, and who not unnaturally urged him very earnestly to "sing out." Groping about as far as his outstretched hands could reach, Mr. Wilson felt and saw the arms of a lady. Withdrawing his hands, he found them stained with blood. The lady was Mrs. Robinson, who had sat in the next seat of the carriage, and was here crushed to death. For two hours did he and his friend below remain firmly held in the grip ot tne neavy timoer pressing on them. When at length the workmen got to them, Mr, Wilson directed their operations, and alter dan ger from misapplied leverage, and an accidental and probably well-meant blow on the head from s crowbar, he and the man beneath were libe rated. ' Mr. Wilson's ankle was believed to be broken, but it is happily whole, though bruised and sprained. Many other incidents of a more or lees severe nature must have marked the scene before all the wounded were cleared off to Newark or sent on to their homes. AUSTRALASIA. Th Great Floods-Further Freshet and Dis asters. From the Sydney Herald, AprilW. ' Since our last European and American sum mary there have been further reports of disas trous floods at Moraya and in the Braid wood district to the south, and further destructive inundations to the north. At Araluen the gold claims there were all flooded and much distress caused thereby, as it will occupy two months before operations can be again carried on; the workingmen are only paid while in active employment. A very severe nooa rose in the lucumond river district, and on one station, the property of Messrs. Girard, upwards of eighteen hundred head of cattle were drowned. In describing this visitation a correspondent oi the local journal writes mere hud been dreadful havoc made iu me nerds of Messrs. Girard, on the Dungarrubba station; above thir teen hundred head had oeen counted when our Informant left, and it is supposed the number drowned will prove to be nearly 20U0, among them several fine young bulls recently pur chased. There were forty-six carcasses taken out of the framework of a house which was being put up on a part of the run. Some seven cr ci-tit Lores were drowned &h)o, but H i nvt known whether they were all Messrs. GiraruV or cot yet." To this is to be added the total destruction of crops of maize and other cereals on farms extending over a largo area of countrv. The fatal accidents have been few, but many instances of almost miraculous escapes from deatij are related, of which the following is a fair sample: "Just about the time rain set in a laboring man started from Kynumboon, intend ing to walk overland to the Richmond river. The poor fellow, however, on reaching Talgum, at the head of the Tweed river, about twenty miles distant, owing to the heavy downpour of rain, found himself hemmed In by the waters, and with little to sustain life. Here tbe unfor tunpte traveller wa3 doomed to remain a fort night without food, subbi6tlng upon a kind of nut which he found in the bush, and when dis covered by the mail boy, who was endeavoring to travel with the mails, the poor fellow was living upon somo grass which he had just fathered and boiled, but was rather emaciated n appearance, while bis intellect showed 6igns of being affected from long exposure and hard ship endured in such weather. Upon receipt of the news the constable stationed at the Tweed went out with provisions, but failed to reach the spot, owing to the spread of waters. Mr. Gray then despatched a black fellow, but he too returned, having been uueuccessf ul. As soon as practicable, however, the constable again started out, when he managed to reach Talgum, and quickly supplied the poor travel ler's wants, who ho found was too weak to walk back, so he was compelled to leave him there, and he was still at Talsum on Tuesday, the 23d, when our Informant passed, then very weak, and presented a strange appearance; yet he re ported himself recovering, but the progress he was maKuig in mat respect was evidently very 6low." The Government and the Floods Committee, who have funds to the amount of 5000 ia hand from subscriptions raised for the sufferers by the floods in 1807. have relieved the immediate wants of the sufferers in all districts lrom which applications have been received. RUSSIA. KcIIkIoiis Persecution -Froiu Poland to the iaitic. The Memorial Diplomatique, of Paris, of June 20, soys that the persecution with which the Catholics of Fc'.ana have been visited has now been extended to the Baltic provinces of Ku?6ia. All public tunctionarles belonging to the Reformed Church are compelled to attend all the religious solemnities celebrated in the Russian churches in honor ot thn Lmperor or other members of the imperial family. They have in vain represented that they perform those reiiinous duties in their own places ot worship. and they have been informed that tbe Grcok lalth being that or the state they must attend ail solemn ceremonies the object of which is to implore the i:vine blessing id tavor oi the reigning dynasty. Un the occasion ot the last celebration ot the Emperor's birthday the Governor of Riga, in order to ascertain whether all the Protestant functionaries had really been present at the Te JJeum, gave iio.tice that, Immediately after the religious ceremony, he would, on behalf of the Kmperor, receive the congratulations ot tne civil and military authorities. The proselytism thus sought to be carried out to the detriment of their co-relig!onists has greatly excited the French Protestants, and a member of the Evangelical Consistory of Paris, M. do Pres sense, has ventured to address himself directly to the Emperor, in the hope of securing to the ProteJtants oi the Baltic provinces the liberty of conscience which thev had been promised. The (Jzar received the oetmou at Ems. and he said, in reply to M. de Prcssense, that if that 1 - -V A ..I.. V ! J.t - ..... 1 Germany, his Majesty would bo willing to see him. Acting upon this invitation, n. do rrcs sense has proceeded to Jungerheim, near Darm stadt, wLere the Emperor has lately been staying. JAPAN. A Raid I'pon Image -Iconoclastic Tendencies ol I he Japanese Too Imperial itesluence. The late persecution against native Christians in Japan seems not to have been directed against that faith alone, but against Buddhism also, or, in other words, against image worship in general. The Japanese are worshippers ot nature; no images ere to be found in the temple of what may be called the established religion. Buddhists are as much dissenters irom the State religion as are the Christians. Buddhists and Christians alike have images in their tem ples of worship, and the iconoclastic zeal of the orthodox laith, as Dy law established, cannot brook the mummeries of image worship, whether of Indian or European origin. A remarkable evidence of their 1 determination to utterly abo lish idols is shown by an iconoclastic edict, which dooms to destruction even the great idol of the empire, a colossal image of Buddha la bronze, of world-wide fame, called Biboots. The gigantic statue is lor sale, and as it is too large to remove it without breaking it up, it is l kelv soon to be turned to some usciul purpose. after having for six centuries contributed to promote a debasing superstition. The Wamte 6ays there was recently a report that the cele- a foreign firm. We cannot ascertain for certain whether it be so or not; but neither the Japan ese officials of whom we have inquired, or the priest at the shrine itself, have heard anything oi the kind, we sincerely nope it is untrue. ATTE3IPTED BALLOON ASCENT. Celebration f the "Glorious Fourth" la St. I 0 ills A Balloon tnat Would Not (is Lp. Four o'clock yesterday afternoon, says the St, Louis Republican of the 5th, was the time an nounced in a number of advertisements for Prof. Chevalier, a so-called famous icronaut. to make an ascent in his balloor , or, as he terras It, flying machine l. zsperance, irom uoncordia rarK. is was to be expected, a great deal of interest was manifested in the enterprise, and at about 3 o'clock 500 persons bad assembled at the park, the charge- for admittance being 5 cents each. Tbe professor had previously made arrange ments with the St. Louis gas works to fill his balloon with gas, and according to the agree ment paid down t.K). The quantity of gas re quired to luiiy innate tic oauoon is zauuu ieet, and this was the quantity agreed upon. Tiie process of inflation commenced soon after two o'clock at a gas-lamp at the corner of State and Ohio streets, about a quarter of a mile north of the park, and there was a considerable number of spectators present. The Lalloon was about two-thirds full of gas, when, according to the professor's story. Mr. Fay. the agent of the sras works, considered that it would not be safe to admit any more into it, and gave orders to that effect. Another misfortune happened to the aeronaut at that moment. A slight breeze of wind wafted the balloon against a projection of the lamp, and two holes, of two or three Inches in length, were accidentally made in the varnished suit or which it is constructed. Despite these unexpected disasters, the profes sor got into the basket, while about a dozen men held the ropes that held the floating mass, and walked in the direction of the pa; k. The professor threw out the ballast from the basket to have a better ascent, but he was only dragged across me ground through a pond, ot water, where he was pretty well eoaked. Finally. Mr. Chevalier, in a fit of desperation, cut loose the bafeket and attempted to asceud by holding on to the ropes of the balloon, but some of the by standers prevented him from making any lurmer anew pi. mained near the entrance of tbo park, where any one could see it g'nUs. The L'Esperance "balloon appeared to be of the, ordinary spherical snapo Jt lay on. tb,e. ground discharging gas, and rolling about like a huge fish left high and dry on the seashore, but when fullv inflated it baa, it is said, an oblong shape. The balloon is provided with propellers which the professor claims will enable it to be elevated or depressed at will. It can also, he says, be guided to any point of the compass. It is of a light brown color, and made of varnished oil silk. The professor estimates that he lost three or four hundred dollars in consequence of the failure to make the ascent yesterday. COLORED RIOTERS. Serious Plnorder at OTnryavllle, Governor's Aid Invoked. Pa. The Yesterday, while the colored military were holding a picnic at the Marysville woods, a serious fight arose. The story we have received is as follows: 8ome of the negro troops iusisted on having liquor nt the Railroad hotel, but Mr. Joseph Seidle, the proprietor, refused their request, and the demand for stimulants becoming violent, he ordered them out of his house. They refused to accede to his demand, when he attempted. with the assistance of an employe, to forcibly eject tbe crowd. A desperate fight resulted, iu which pistols, guns, clubs and bottles were freely used by the assailants. Several nesro women are said to have been there with revol vers, engaged in the melee. Mr. Seidle was knocked down, and received severe contusions on the head, reported to have been from the butt of a musket. Samuel Bowman was shot In the face; George Andrews was shot In the forehead; Y. E. M'iten, of Harrisburg, was hit in the head. Two men named Anspach and Kneply were also said 10 nave oeen hit in the head. The fracas commenced after dinner, at about two o'clock. The alarm throughout the town wa3 great. the news spreading like wildfire, and the reports were wild and comusea. At five o'clock Captain W. II. Weaver, who was in the service during the war, telegraphed the governor as iouows: "Marysville, July 4, 1870. Governor John W. Geary :Colored troops are rioting, shooting pea teful citizens on the streets. Send us help. "VY. 11. WEAVER, "Late Captain Commanding, "12th Regiment P. R. V. C." A second despatch was as follows: "Marysville. July 4. 1870 General John W. Geary. Harrisburg: Colored troops have left. As they passed through the town they poured a volley over our town and wounded some five or six, as near as I can come. Please arrest officers and company, when charges will be preierred lor noting. w. h. weaver, ".Late uaptain. Captain Weaver received the following answer: "Cai-tain W. II. Weaver: Governor Geary directs me to summon you here forthwith to report to me at the Btate Capital Hotel. A. Li. kubsell, Adjutant-General, Captain Weaver arrived here last night and had a consultation with the Governor, who in structed him to bring the offending parties to justice by civil process, and as the individuals concerned on the side of the colored men all re side in this city, a number of processes were issued to-day for their apprehension. At the time there was an Odd Fellows' picnic in progress near Marysville, embracing lodges from Marysville, Duncannon, Dauphin and New portall white and while a portion of the lodges were proceeding homeward in the cars at 6 o clock, with women and children, it is re ported on one side that the colored men attacked the train, firing into the cars; and on the other side that the whites gave the first offense. It is difficult to decide who was to blame in the ex citement, which was great. Uarrisburg Topic, July 5. THE PUBLIC BATHS. The Ladles Out In Full Force on the Fourth The Experience of a Nymph Necking; for Fncts. "The day we celebrate" was inaugurated at the free baths on the Fourth by a grand charge of females of every age, color and condition, who advanced in a steady stream from 5 A. M. till 2 P. M., without seeming to diminish in num bers. The ticket receivers who were stationed at the doors were kept as lively 'as crickets during the whole morning in giving out tickets and answering questions put to them by their fair patrons, and at the conclusion of their day's labor a fervent prayer went up doubtless that such another throng would in the future never darken the doors, at least in the same manner as yesterday, as it would require the patience ot Job mmseii and the tortitude ot Grant to withstand the avalanche of difficulties that surrounded the ticket-takers. "Mr. Offi cer." asked a damsel who came from Second avenue, "do you really think the bath is danger ousare there any vermin in the water t i have heard bo many, many different stories about the class of people who frequent them mere laborers wives and drunken men that l have really resolved to test them myself and ascertain the truth." The questioner, who was "fair to look upon," accompanied the above remarks by a look of utter disdain at the females who were crowding in, but her fears being quieted by the gentle manly ushers, she ventured in, but soon returned with horror depicted on her countenance at the spectacle that had greeted her astonished optics. Without waiting to explain her opinion of the scenes she bad witnessed, she hurried out through tbe gangway, muttering, "Horrible, tuthy, indecent, until lost to view in the surg lng multitude of astonished matrons and maids, The merry laughter on the inside and the plea sant expression or the countenances oi those who came out after having partaken of a bath in the cool, pure water, belied the exclamations ot the disgusted visitor. . X til VUtlJVUb lilU AJ b UV1I VAWOlUfa 1UU 4000 females patronized both baths, and their popularity has been tuny established, x ester day each bath was provided with an experienced female waitress by Superintendent Kxack, who attended to every want of their respective charges, as the season advances, and the ex cellent manner in which tbe baths are conducted becomes known generally throughout the city. hundreds of ladies who have hitherto abstained from visiting through a fear of impropriety. will, it is expected, patronize them to an extent un Known in the annais ot iree oains. Tbe bath at the foot of Charles street, by rea son of its removal so recently from Thirteenth street, was not crowded as much as the one at Fifth street; as it was, however, some 800 or 000 ladies visited it, a portion partially from curi osity, but most of them to bathe. Owing to tbe great numbers present yesterday, which com pletely took the officers on hand by surprise, it has been decided in tne iuture to lengiuen tne time for bathing one or two hours N. 1'. Times. HORRIBLE CRIME. Atrocious murder of an Infant. On Saturday night last one of the most atro clous murders which we have been called upon to record took place near Beltsville, Md.. thlr teen miles north ot this city, on the .Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the victim being the infant oi Mr. Albert Read, aged nine months, and the Jerpetrator a colored woman named Mary Wal ace, who has been employed as a servant in the house where Mr. Read s family were boarding. This woman having been on Saturday detected stealing some of Mrs. Read's nurse s clothes, was charged with it, and tbe lady by whom she bas employed informed her that she would Lave to leave on Sunday. It was the habit of Mrs. Read to take into her room some prepared milk with which to feed the child when it awoke, and about one o'clock Sunday morning the child crying awakened her, and Mr. Ksad gave the little one some ot the mils, of which it lock Lut little Mr. Read found that the milk was bitter, and calling the attention of the lady of the house to it, she tasted it, as did Mr. Read, and suspected that something unusual had been mixed with it. Their suspicions were in a few moments confirmed, for the child, after writh ing in agony about half an hour, died, and the lady was taken with violent pains. Dr. Belt was summoned at once and tried to save the life of the child, but could not. Examining the milk he at once detected strychnine in it. Inquiries were at once made as to who could have put the poison in the child's milk, and it was ascertained that a small quantity of strychnine had been brought to tbe house, with a view to kill rats, and a boy employed in the house had seen the girl Mary take some of it from the bottle. She was there fore detained in the house until the matter could be investigated. The grand parents and friends of the family were informed of the affair on Sunday, and an inquest was also held, when a verdict in accordance with the facts above stated was rendered. The accused was present at the inquest, and strenuously denied having any hand in tbe business, notwithstanding she was closely questioned, but subsequently to the inquest she admitted that she did put the poison in the milk, so that the nurse might be charged with the murder of the child. She was commit ted to jail at Marlboro. The corpse of the little one was brought to this city on Sunday, and the funeral took place yesterday afternoon. Wash' ngton star, last evening. IRELAND. The Trades Combination Riots In Cork. From the Cork Jlcporter, June 28. The city last night was again thrown into a scene of turmoil and disorder, and until midnight the police were incessantly occupied in charging on the inoD in tne enaeavor to disperse tnem. Stones were showered upon them, particularly in the vicinity of the Coal quay and North Main street, where the various lanes and aucys anora particular facilities for escape. Patrick street was kept com paratively clear by the First Royal Dragoons and mounted constabulary, who swept through it at In tervals. The scenes or violence in the North Main street particularly were positively dreadful, and presented the aspect of a guerilla warfare. it would appear tnat tne riots nave assumed more the form of a fierce and determined opposition of authority than disturbances arising from a trade dispute. There is still a hope entertained that even at the eleventh hour the mob will be deprived ol any pretext for further disturbance by an amicame set tlement being come to between the journeymen tailors and their masters. A movement in that direction has been made at a meeting held In Cork Institution, where the representatives or the rival interests assembled in the presence of the Mayor and Messrs. F. Lyons and Cautillon to discuss the points of uiiference between them. . FunUhment. From the Cork Reporter, June 25. At the Police oillce yesterday several persons were sent for trial to the assizes and others senreuced to various Derions of imprisonment fortaklnir part In the riots on the nights of Wednesday and Thursday.. Mr. Ktarkie, li. .m., replied to a complaint made on the previous day by Mr. Philip O'Connell that the local magistrates had neglected their duty. For his part he had acted promptly, ana waen tne crowa had attacked the London house immediate steps were taken to disperse them. They had not a su in dent force to meet a sudden emergency, and a riot did take place In consequence, but he rejoiced that there were no uniortunate results, wnicn waB en tirely due to the forbearance of the authorities. The Second Mftht's Klotlnar. The Cork RevorUr describes the scenes and pro ceedings of the second night as follows: Towards evening crowds began to assemme in Patrick street, particularly In the vicinity of Win- tnrop street ana tne nouses oeienging to Messrs. Fltzpatrlck Jk Lee, merchant tailors, which nad oeen wrecnea on toe nieuo oeiore. xne police, with considerable forethought, cleared the street, but not withont some difficulty, the mob exhibiting their hostility by loud im precations and throwing stones whenever an opportunity presented Itself by which the Individual onenuers coniu escape onservauou. a iruup ui iao First Itoyal Dragoons, with drawn swords, swept from end to end or ratrick street, wnue numbers ran oir and sheltered themselves in door-ways to avoid being trampled under foot. A large force of the 68th Infantry at the same time cleared the flag ways, while the mounted constabulary charged t,he mob on Patrick's Bridge, dispersing them along the quays. This had the desired etiect ror a time, but it did not drive the crowd off. for whtm the military passed on they crowded into the streets again, until a fresh onslaught drove them for refuge into the back streets. The scenes or disorder and violence throuchout the night were indescribable. The length of Patrick street, Prince's street, Marl boro street, Wlnthrop street, Academy street, and all the leading avenues to the central artery of the cltr were swept by mounted constabulary and dra goons, supportea energetically Dy iiie contuaouiary with fixed bavoneta. As each sally was made, the teoDle rushed headlong, numbers falling on the road, wnue tne oiurs passea over iaem ; out meir terror was so great that they managed generally to scramble out of the way of danger. About 8 o'clcck the police were drawn and stationed in seve ral parts of Patrick street, the main oody occupying the centre of tbe street, and the other at Cook street, Maylor street and Marlboro street. Soon after this hour, the news having gone abroad that tbe riot had commenced again, several contingents from the suburbs and extremities or tne town began to gather In Patrick street, and lu order to keep them from clustering and blocking up the thorough fare the police had male several charges after them, in one of which a man named Qulnlan was knocked down and received a slight cut from a aword on the right arm. At th's juncture the authorities, seeing that the police force was totally inadequate to quell the row, which was gradually beginning to come to a crisis, sent lor tne military. and soon after that a detachment of the 1st Royals and the Light Dragoons arrived on the spot, the latter of which immediately charged up Patrick street and the Parade, but fortunately met with no opposition. The latter were stationed opposite the Victoria Hotel and con venient to tne Bhops of Messrs. iee u Fltzpatrlck, which were gutted on the previous night, and where they remained stationary mostly during the greater part of the night, except on one or two occasions. when they were called into requisition to clear the flags. While the military were thus kept stationary several pickets or police, with side-arms, charged down Academy street and Marlboro street seve ral times. LSQAL INTELLIGENCE. Prison Cases.
