We hive obtained the foil >wi<>g p?rtic?l ?r? Id rtffird to the railrcari accident which o car?d on the Cleveland. -Columbus and Cincinnati railrou^. nea Delaware statl n, at 11 o'clock, A. M. io-day. Onr lof>,m?'ion li gather ed from the conductor, W. A FUher, E-q , and from passengers upon the train whicn met with the disaster. It appears that the train, >hn first Cinrlanatl ?<xprete Which left Columbus at 10:S tbl? morning, white ea its way eattward, and when procuring at fs usual average flpeed ? thirty alien per hour ? m?t with a dlaaste-, from Ihe breaking of the foi war' ax'e o' t he eng'ce truck The train conriated of a locomotive, tei der ntggage car and three passenger cars, all fllifd. Up in the breaking of the axle the engine struck the ground, and immediately turned over on the light clue. The engineer, (^wiss,) and fiieman, both stood to their posts gallantly, going over with the 1oo"idoM-?. The engineer, who wss, we understand, badly injured in an acci dent some th'ce jearg ago, wax t. art in the bark. The fireman had bis ankle badly ?pru<n?d. Both were some irhat braised, but not. aerioualt. Tie bsggure ear fol lowed h < locomotive, and turned over in < ? right side. Had it not brooght up against a *t amp, it is probable that it would have tuirn-d <,v?r **verai times. In this car were fl\e men. But two 'f them w-rt hurt. The .American tapieiw me nnger, ,lohn?>n, (who doe* not as a usual thing travel upon the .ralo ) had iw> cr three rib* broken, and it may be i< o h?r*M conti lerably in jured. ile reMdes. I be iera, at Clevis nd He was left at Cardington, in a surgeon's care Ic 'he s?m? car Mr. Frank Bnw?n, a ptywarer on the rr,wi, was stverely burned and I ruined from the stove and bacgige falling up jn him. Mr. Bowea suffered o much that he could bt brough* no farther than Cheshire , where he was left In good liacds. Ho was very anxicu- to come cn to Cleve land, where be has a wife. Forlurately for the passengers, thecoup'lngofthe baj g?g? cur. wli h was literally turned end fcr eod, broke, ao thai the hiee panseiger csr* m v?d > n actually pass ing the wrenk. until the rear of tne last ear was aireaitt ?f the locomotive; the first, as al-o the second pae<eng<>r car, bad their plat'orms smashed tip, wind >w? b'oken, &e. In the firat pnsse* ger ew tbere were tw<> persona injur ed?the conductor, W. A. Ft-. tier, hui a very narrow j escape; he was just in the act of opening the door of the ?first passeraer car to step out upon the platform ?when the pU< forms were folded up; in a mimeat mtre he would have b?cn crushed between them, as it was, hia hands wci>c bndly cut and jammed in the door.' A French passenger, whore name we did not learn wm also slightly hurt by the breaking of glass, he.; a bla* eye wa? probably the wor?-t of l"jnr'.ea. A negro waiter, a passenger in the hsggag* c ir?. got hi* finger badly jammed. The^r?4 p?sqi?ger car was off the tracK reve< al times, oa a?&in in a most unaecountab e manner? the pCfJUtsrn considering them selves very lucky. But the accident ?as one of that na ture which it wa impossible ti 'cresee or present. Ko bltme is attached to the tall read eaployjs. The locomotive (Buffalo) hui been running about 4hree yearn? la a W,000 eagtne. The lo?a of tte earn pany may te estimated in round numbera at $4,000.

Youviux, Aj/'i) 7, 1866. The first witness examined was: ? Mr. Theodore Sedgwick, who testified as follows:? I reside in this city, and am a counsellor-atlaw. Q. Will you state whether yon saw anv book, while In hngland, purporting to be a parian record of baptism in Brandon, Suffolk county, England ? , Otjocted to l>y Mr. Brady, on the ground that the record should be produced first Mr. Noyea contended that if testified to by com petent witnesses, it wasadinissable, although the re cord itself might not be produoed. A sworn copy was admirable, he argued, nd cited Cowen & Hill's notes, 61G, 1,147 and 1,149. Mr. Brady objected, as there was no legal proof that the record wa- authentic. Witness returned? 1 was in I.ondon in July and August last year; on some day during that period 1 was at Mr. Buchanan's office; a gentleman whom I had no recollection of having ncen before, but who was Mr Branch, introduced himself to me; he showed me a book entitled " The Parish Record of Baptism for the Parish of Brand "l I gu\<? him the following certificate: ? I certify that Mr. btepben H. B'a' * dty pr iluccd M'fcre me, at the re.iaeiK Ho j. J a cue* Buchanan.

Aod I farther certi J that the said maunscitpt volume C'l.tmnn under the head of l,IUpi^me, 1811,'' the following worca:? "George, ion of G?o go MaUbU aid El'tibe'.h bid wife. baptized, privately, Oct. 10th and 'eceivad Dec. 2?">th." I have given Mr. Brar.cH this certlfic*to at his request. THEODORE SEDGWICK, lospow, Arg. 2, 1PJ5. Witr.o?s resumed ? The volume was rather a thin folio volume, iu manuscript, on parchment, if it states so in my affidavit; it did not strike me as a very old or a very new looking voluu.e; t think Air. AppJeton, the Secretary of the Legation, saw it; if Mr. Buchanan saw it, it was without my know ledge: I think Mr. Branch was alone. Crr ss examined by Mr Brady I did not witness any interview between Mr Bnchanan and Mr. Branch; the Vook which he showed me wis open; it wan a bound book; I should say the record oi the liapti?iu was in the ti.iddle or the page or not; Mi Tfcwli nil T imuM ini I ahkmIk, I did; Mr. Breach came in after I arrived at Mr. BuchananV office; ] was kept waiting so ma time to see Mr. Hucliauan. Mies Ann Roe, sworn, testified as follows I re side in Broadway; I resided near Niblo's between 1*14 and 1*24; 1 recollect a family living noar me named Matsell; Mr. Matoell wao a tailor; I did not see him often : I knew his two eldest daughters, Su-ari and Mary: I knew there were throe boys, William, George and Augustus. Mr. Reeves E Selmes, sworn, testified as follow*: ? During the laft summer I occupied the potion of Secotid A distant Cleik to the Board of Aldermen; .1 have rcnyh minutes of the evidence girea beiore the Fulioc (.'immittee; the papers which I have in my band are copies of the Brandon records and the re pert of the con mittee to the Hoard of Alderiaen, Stephen H. Branch, swum, testified as follows 1 re.side in New York; 1 lived in Ne*' York since I wa?*leven years old: I werit to England to ascer tain the birthplace of Geo. W. Mattel! ; 1 left the United Mate* on July IK 1*56: 1 went first to liver pool, from there to Brandrn very circuit Minly, which is on the line of Norfolk and Satfolk counties. Q. What ltd you to go to Brandon? Objected to by Mr. Brady, on the gronnd that the motive was not evidence. Sustained by the Court. Witness- I went there from a statement made by | Mrs. Mil leg an, a witness in this case; Brandon in a village of about 2.000 inhabitants; I first saw the parish clerk, whom 1 found about two rods from his n si dene e; he was pointed out to me: his name is I Charles Farrow, and he is about 45 years of age. V- What conversation took place "between you? Objected to by Mr. Brady. The Court Ha id that he should state facts. Witness ? He (the sexton) directed me to go to 1/or.don, where the rector was: the rector had two residences . one in Brandon and the other in Ivoodon; I went from Brandon ' > London, and found the rector there; his name wn? Samuel Warren; he directed me to return to Brandon and go to the rectorial mansion; I knew he wo* the rector, because bo told me so. Mr. Brady objected to the testimony which was sor.ght to be introduced, on the ground that there w?4 ni> proof of its authenticity. There was no proof, for instance, that the person Mr. Branch spoke to was the rector, except his own statement. It was all hearsay from beginning to end ? book, sexton, rector, all was hearsay. In order to intro duce unv record they had to bring proof ineligible that that record waj authentic. Mr. Stongbton, conn -el tor prosecution, contended that the manner in which the? documents came before the Court was in accordance with the roles of evidence. The City Judge said that evidence might be ad mitted now and ruled nf?on afterward". Mr. Brady objected, and said he claimed that Mr. Branch kne w nothing about the matter, and would, when cross-examining, endeavor to prove it. The Recorder ruled in favor of Mr. Brady. He thought this testimony could not be introduced with out first proving the authenticity of the records. He for one would prefer hearing the authorities and art ument ot the counsel before deciding this question. His Honor the Mayor wtid this was a coart not trammelled by technicalities. He was only in Fcarch of ftwts, and would exclude no evidence whatever. He would admit it all. My colleagues here are lawyers ? I am not, and must defer to them, if they rnle against me. bi t I hope they will unite with me in admitting it all. There is no appeal in this coTirt. The Becordcr said the very fact that there wa? no apj eal from thi-> Court led him to be guided by the well settled principle* of law which had been Hxod af'er the experience of ages. He would prefer th it tbc members ot the Court should have a consultation together before deciding this question. Mr Btonghton said, if discussion and authorities were necesi-pry, he hoped an opportunity would be given them to' produce the authorities. City Judge (.apron ?aid the remaiks of the Mayor seemed very n aaonable. Equity and justice nad great weight with him. He For one should prefer, argument, but he thought we could admit the evi dence subject to argument, biit be would leave this for the decision of his colleagues. The Recorder said it would save time to adjonra Mr. Brndv ? Then before adjocming we can call other witnesses? I am a witness myself? (f?mihter) ? will you examine me? Mr. No^es ? We' will not examine you uow? wo will be ready for you next time, perhaps. The Court then adjourned tid Si o'clock next Saturday. The TO THE EDITOR OF TBK JIKRALD. [ Between the hours of 10 and 11 A.

We an ? in ILe midst of a regular whirlpool of peace negotiations. What I prognosticated ha# ac tually occurred. Scarcely did we Warn that Coast Valentine Esterhazy bad left for Ht. Petersburg, when out pop counter proposal)* from St. Peters burg. It is true that when these Russian proposals appeared, the proposals brought by Count Ester hazy were supposed to be still unknown at St. Petersburg. But eredat Judaeu* t No one will doubt that Prince Gortachakofl', who is an able man, waa not aware of the substance, at least, of the Aus trian proposals. The Austrian proposals arc, a< 1 hare already in forn rd you ? 1. That Russia shall abai don her claim to the special protectoiate of the Greek Church in Turkey. 2. That the Bhck Sea shall be made into a mere sea of commerce, from which the war ships of aft nutioDB should be, by common conseut, excluded. 3. That Ruthin should cede so much of the terri tory of Restarabia aa is necessary to secure to ?? nations the free navigation of the Danube. 4. That all forti esses on the shores of the Black Sea should be dismantled, and that the idea of tmr tiiying the aland Wards should be forever aban doned. Well, tlic above proposals did not reach St. Peters burg till the 2Gth of December ; on the 22d of De cember a circular is issued from the Imperial Chan eery , offering proposals of peace on certaiu terms. lhe Em per or conseits that the thirl p?ln *h*l be eoNtd (TtHtlu ) by the 'nilowli g cim linatljua:? 1. ttifc closing pi the straits . 2. miU'arv flag whate\cu ?bail float In t-e Blaok Sea, with >lie cxinitinn r that ofthttfi mn filch ku-eia sue tJie Porte by h common coiumt may deem i~. neeea kbi ) to ir uioiftii, there Si.

TI e pamphlet attributed to the French Emperor on the necet^ity of a oougress for peace at Pahs is disavowed. There is no other news. Our London CoiTMpomkntf. IiONDO*, Jan. 4, 1?66. The Praer Negotiations? Alleged Secret Under itenuiing between Lama Napoleon and the Czmr ? Significant Omittum in /Amis Napoleon's Atldrem to the Imperial Ouard ? Singular Commercial Ph4 ncmena? The New Line of Sieamert between Antwerp and New York. Since a week past the London press has takes great pains to deny the general belief that the En* |jeror of the French had determined to effect a pooh flcatiou with ttussia. There in no doubt, however, of bis dot-ire to put an end to the war, if it bo poetrf ble to hit upon terms that will be acceptable to the public opinion of Western Europe. Thi- is a serious obstacle, for Russia will naturally neck to make M little cozicewuon as j*>s8ible, in order to nave her pride; and the time for negotiation may pass away before anything is settled. It is certain that Lori 1'almeri-ton will do all in his power to prevent any amicable arrangement; and as he roust be ;onsuhed upon the conditions of peace, it is evident that he has ample means to postpone, at d therefore to defeat it. Louifl Napokon nm> . therefore, in spite of hia profound reluctance, be forced to go on with hottiN ties till a more favorable occasion offer* for an es cape. lhe Emperor is well aware that the nation is not at all enthii?iflf>tic in this war, which they look upon as rather t" the a ! vantage of England titan themselves. The English journal* take great pain* to prove the contrary; but they have failed to din turb French convictions on this important point. The only party in Frame really amiou< lor the con tinuance of the war is tlie republican. I t their hope is that sooner or later it will involve the Emperor in seriens difficulties, if not disaster*. They secretly try to spread the belief that Englaud, for her own pnrpnfes, has entrapped franco into the war, and 'but t.ie loss of French blood and treasure only gresto promote tje aggr.tndi/emeut ef their old enemies, and to weaken and impoverish themselves lie Emperor Is. no doubt aware of these insidiocu.* macMni t ions, and it constitutes another reason for his Hjj.xicty to cscape the embarrassments of the pre cut and the contingencies of the future. At thi* mi men t all is uncertain. The an?wtrof F/^sia to
