Does this portend a coming storm ? TH? Bible la the Public Sebools? A Satisfactory Solution of a Trouble some Question. The decision of Superintendent Weaver denying the legal right of school trustees to make religious instruction part of the regular school exercises will receive the approval of every fair-minded man. In this age, when the spirit of religious liberty is abroad, it is somewhat startling to find a large body of citi zens desirous of exercising a spiritual tyranny by compelling the attendance of children at religious teaching to which they entertain a conscientious objection. The introduction of the Bible into the public schools has been the cause of constant irritation and ill-will between the different Christian sects, aud each day seems only to increase the bitterness of the parties. The contest at Long Island City last fall became serious, and something in the shape of a religious war was threatened. Roman Catholic children refused to be present at the reading of a Protestant Bible, and the trustees, with an ardor for the principles of oivil and religious liberty beyond all praise, expelled the insubordinate Catho lics. This exhibition of liberality and respect for the opinions and convictions of others led to a series of protests on the part of the Catho lic minority, which terminated in an appeal to the Superintendent. The legal right of the trustees to enforce the reading of the obnoxious Bible has been de cided to have no existence, as the schools are provided for secular, and not for religious, in struction. At the samo time it is held that if religious people wish their children to read the Bible the trustees are at liberty to appoint n time before or after the regular school business for religious instruction, at which attendance will not bo compulsory. This is a reasonable solution of the difficulty, and will give general satisfaction to all but the "unco guid," who never enjoy complete Christian peace but whep they are persecuting others for the love of God. However, as these splenetic devotees are not very numerous among us, the public can afford to be indifferent as to whether they are pleased or not. It i? of the first importance to the well being of the republic that the public schoolH shall be popular with the people, in order that there may be no excuse for ignorance among our growing population. In order that they may be so it is necessary that the rights of all the children shall be scrupulously respected. Religious freedom in the widest sense must be enjoyed by the pupils, not the garbled liberty which means that every one shall be forced to accept whatever religious teaching the school trustees may consider good. To tam per with the right of conscience is infinitely a greater outrage than to impose disabilities, and one less likely to be borne patiently. The agitation on this school question was be coming really dangerous to the existence of harmonious relations between the different seots, and we hope that the reasonable and just decision of Superintendent Weaver will form a precedent that will be followed all over the country wherever mixed schools exist It is so palpably an outrage to compel the at tendance of children upon obnoxious religious instruction that "o amount of sophistry can justify or cover' ^ uch a violation of natural right. All classcs are interested in the just settlement of this question, because there is no protection that the persecutors at one point may not become the persecuted at another, if we are to accept the doctrine that the majority have the right to impose their religious in struction on the minority. Such a proposition, when advanced nakedly, appears monstrous; yet this is just what the Long Island truntees have been guilty of in the case of the Catholic children under their charge. It appears these modal Christians are not content with the impartial and highly credit able decision of the Superintendent. They have resolved on au appeal to the higher au thorities, resolving not to abandon their privi lege to do evil so long as they can possibly hold on. The actions of these men fur nish a strange commentary on the Chris tianity of which they put themselves forward as the champions. There is more of the cruel and oppressive spirit of ministers of evil than of the gentleness and meekness of followers of Christ in tho conduct of these Bible lovers. Their obstinate resolve to main- I tain the obnoxious system will be condemned by every one with a pretence to liberality. Such an exhibition of bigotry is worthy of the Dark Ages, and marks out the actors for the contempt of all Whose minds have learned alike to scorn Hlgot.i In Home or England born. We hope the appeal made against Superin tendent Weaver's decision will be rejected, and that the non-sectarian character of our public schools shall be authoritatively declared. All citizens are taxed to support them, and the course of instruction ought not to be ob noxious to any sect. This is but common ustice, and we believe that the good sense and ove of fair play inherent in the American people will insist on justice being done in this matter. EGYPT. + ?

Secretary Fish intended to leave here this even ing for New York, but the nnexpected turn In affairs at Geneva compelled him to defer his de parture until to-morrow evenlug, when, if nothing intervenes, he will leave for Boston, where he ex pects to meet the President. The work of preparing the correspondence In the supplemental article was finished this evening, and Mr. Fish says it may be published on Monday morn ing.

A RAILROAD HOLOCAUST Terrible Catastrophe on the G-rand Trunk Railroad. Fifteen Passengers Killed and Sixty-five Fearfully Scalded. MORE DYING. Harrowing Details of the Disaster and List of Passengers. Rki.i.kvii.i.e, Ont., June 22. 1872. The night express went down past this place at twenty minutes past twelve this morning full of passengers, among the number many being minis ters or the Knglish Church eu route homeward from the Synod at Toronto. About eleven miles below the Belleville station the engine jumped the track, carrying death and fearful torture to the scores of .passengers in the forward cars. The bag gage car remained on the track and tele scoped the smoking car and the second class passenger car, leaving tliein on top of the engine exposed to the escaping steam front the boiler. Here the poor creat ures were hepeiessly penned for some time, breathing the vapors of death and suffering all the agony of Immersion into a boiling cauldron of superheated water. Mr. R. M. Roddy, an eye witness, says:? Tmmedl ateiy after the accident lie went to the sccond class car. It and the smoking car were telescoped and on the locomotive, the steam from which, Issuing from the cars, was so dense that he could see nothing. One after another of the scalded victims were crawling from the openings. Crowbars were immediately put into requisition by the passengers from the flrst class cars, all of whom escaped In jury, and openings were made. Many were found entangled, and were extricated with the utmost, difficulty, timbers having to be broken. FIVK PERSONS WERE FOUND DEAD and were carried to the road side, where the wounded lay for nearly three hours In the most fearful agony. l)r. Rurdett, of Belleville, arrived at this time and had them removed to the Pullman car. On their arrival here everything was promptly done to allay their sufferings. The medical men of the town were summoned, mattresses procured and the large freight shed turned Into a temporary hospital, where the patients received every possible attention. The medical men and their assistants are unremitting in their attentions, while the ministers of the Oospel vie with each other in their zeal in the administration of their sacred office. The sight was one that battled description. THK TKKKIHLK CRIES OK THE SUFFERERS rent the cars ol the lookers on, who made every possible effort to grant their requests for water and food, and their condition under the Influence of their terrible injuries ? was fearful to witness, while prayers and cries of premonition of ap proaching dissolution were ncre and there heard. After the injured arrived here some of them passed away? a happy rcller being afforded from their dreadful agonies. Those who were the least in jured walked about swathed In bandages, and con versed freely about the occurrence of the night. The express and baggage car was forced past the broken engine without injuring the express mes senger or baggage man ; but the smoking car telescopcd the sccond class car; the latter going forward knocked off the safety valve of the boiler and remained ON TOP OF THK ENOINE, allowing the steam to fill the second class car, which was crowded with passengers, many of them lumbermen, en route for Quebec. The two llrst class cars and the Pullman car were com paratively uninjured, and the passengers were transshipped and went east this forenoon. Sixty-five men and women were fearfully scalded and otherwise injured, six of whom died on the spot, and the bodies were brought to this place. Four more have died, and others are dying every hour.

Mr. Rice, lu opening the meeting, paid high compliments to President Grant and Senator Wilson, and claimed that had not Grant been nominated at Philadelphia another party would have nominated and elected him. The more his record Had been luvestfgated the more brilliantly It shone, a?d his companion on the ticket was a worthy example or American statesmanship, starting in the world without the aid or wealth or ordinary advantage ror culture. judge Haays was the first person Introduced, and lauded the candidates for their well-earned dis tinction In the lines or war and politics. In his allusion to Senator Sumner the audience were disposed to hiss, but were checked by the speaker, belore his sentence was complete. His expression was only one or regret at the course his rriend hail taken, and the hope that he would soon realize his false position. Ills speech or lnvee tjve had rallen as a dead letter upon the public ear, as, said the leader or a democratic newspaper, the people or Massachusetts knew President Grant nnd all attacks upon him would be repelled In their minds as they read them. He gave his testimony that while in the Cabinet no personal con sideration ever weighed in the express sentiments or the President when flic public good was at stake. His suggestions were directly to the point, upon all occasions, and when the Speaker read Mr. Stunner's speech he could not help think- | ing that lie was talking about some other ncrsnns. On questions or civil rights and the public credit President Grant had boon true to his country's honor. His conciliatory policy toward Indian tribes; his wise selection or incumbents ! of Important govermental portions, in spite of ? mooting influences were set forth In eloquent torn is "iiiil Mr. Hoar assorted that the greatest ob struction Ocneral Grant has met with in his ad ministration was his inheritance from the Johnson v a<tv. Mr. Oreely was the first instance In Mr. Hoar's recollection or a candidate In search of a ^General WonnvoRn, of New York. In a stirring sneech predicted that when Greeley was whipped tliorc would bo no more democracy.

Miss Ida Greeley Presiding at an Ex perimental State Dinner. Hungry City Men Running Wild Among Country IMiblea. A .Tolly Dny with tlio Pit Homo | > h cr, The every-Saturday excursion of Mr. Greeley to the forest of Chappaqua was rendered more than usually Interesting yesterday. 1 1 is daughter, Ida. revisited the scenes of her childhood on the occa sion, for the first time since her return from Europe, and a number of gentlemen prominent in the present canvass accompanied liim to obtain a view, for their own satisfaction, of that wonderful woodchopplng that promises to shape the ends of the canvass, "rough-hew them how we will." Ethan Allen, chairman of the National Executive Commit tee ; James M. Scovel, 01 the New Jersey Executive Committee ; John Mullaly, of the Metropolitan Record; Ralph Meeker, a son of the editor of the Greeley (Col.) Tribune, and the representative of the IIekald comprised the distinguished company that met the Philosopher and his daughter at the depot and acoompanled them to TUB NKW AMII I. ANI) IN WESTCHESTER. At the Chappaqua station tlie.v wore met by Mr. J. R. Stuart and Mrs. Stuart, James M. Nelson, an ex-Assemblyman of Rockland county, who was a student under Henry Clay, and who distinguished himself by his strong opposition, although a demo crat, to the Tweed charter; Professor Jackson, of the Military Institute at Tarrytown, and his son; Mr. Silver, one of the ottleers of the Tarrytown Greeley Clnb, and by Mr. Louis A. Coates, one of the Greeley speakers of the canvass. This distin guished party at once proceeded to TIIK WII1TH norSE IN THK WOOD*, and the Philosopher and his Arlends, after "taking a drink," as usual, and looking over the farm, halt ed 011 the wooded knoll and went to work on the trees. Miss Ida Greeley, In view of tho probability of her becoming next year TIIK LAI)Y OP THE WHITE HOUSE in Washington, deserves a fuller description. Her mother has for many years been an luvalid, and is now so unwell that Mr. Greeley hesitates about re moving her from tho St. Cloud notel, where she Is staying in this city, to the homestead at Chappaqua and in the event of his election the most arduous duties of hostess of the Executive Mansion would devolve upon his eldest daughter. Miss Ida Gree ley Is a young lady of about eighteen, of medium height, handsome, with the soft dark eye, shapely features and tine complexion of her father. A mass of dark brown hair is done up in becoming folds about her head. Her manners are affable and cor dial, her conversation ready and sprightly, and from the success with which, assisted by Mrs. Stuart, she presided at TUB FIRST STATE DINNER of the coming administration under the evergreen shades on the farm yesterday it was made eVldent that her domestic accomplishments aro thorough. She may be eplgrammatlcally described as the Phi losopher refined out of his angularities and eccen tricities and feminlnlzed. She heard of her fat her's nomination first in London, Mr. Smalley, of the Tribune , having telegraphed her mother at once on receiving notice of it, and, as she admits naively, "was giad to hear if." Siie endorses his proposed nomination at the Itnltimore Convention, and, in the event of It, believes he will be elected. She does not advocate woman suffrage, but if she could vote would vote for Mr. Greeley, which she thinks the woman suffragists as a party would not be likely to do. THE PERILS OF TIIK CAMPAIGN. Ethan Allen, Scovel, Mullaly and the rest of the gentlemen ranged themselves about the woods where Mr. Greeley had laid out his. trimming pro gramme, and Allen and Mullaly, at least, having never seen the Philosopher at this exercise, awaited his movements with some apprehension, and watched them with a feeling akin to terror. They were frightened at his danger. When the reckless Sage hopped boldly on a limb fifteen feet from the ground, with his axe In hand, and the knotty limb bent under his weight, Allen turned pale with horror. A PROTEST FROM TnE PARTY. "This won't do, Scovel," said Allen ; "see what a slip might dot Ir that limb gave way, or those smooth soled shoes slipped, or that axe should re bound and cut Ills leg, and he should double up over the limb and fall that distance to the ground''? and his voice became husky with the ter ror of the situation. Scovel? Now, you be easy. He's done this for fifteen years, and he's as safe there as you are on the stump. Allen? Hut that's no surety at all. The pitcher may go to the well, you know, any number of times and be broken at last, one false blow or a. slip might be the death of Ihe liberal party. The National Com mittee must protest against this. We must per suade him to vent his surplus energies hereafter ou subsoil ploughing or somet hing of that sort. The Philosopher meantime, unconscious of the animated discussion in bis interest going on be low, continued calmly trimming his trees. He stopped for a moment In Ills work to point to a tall rough bark tree glowing near. "Allen," said he, " you used to be a farmer. Can you tell me what sort of a tree that Is '<?" WHAT ALLEN KNOWS Allot' r FAKMINO. Allen, with ready intelligence, replied that he didn't know. Young Meeker said It was a cucum ber. Nelson agreed with Meeker. Mullaly thought It was a rutabaga. Nobody guessed right, and the Philosopher said that It was a yellow poplar, a very uncommon sort of tree for this part of tho country. Nelson ? Well, that's what's called a cucumber out West. Meeker corroborated this statement. The Philosopher? But that Is not a cucumber. Allen (confidently)? No, no, 1 know a cucumber when I see It. I haven't farmed for nothing. Scovel? Well, if it is a cucumber I wouldn't want more than one slice of It for breakfast. Mullaly (solemnly)? If it Is not a cucumber, whv cucumberetli it the ground ? The Philosopher ? Well, Alien, here's another tree I'll try you on (pointing to a thin, gummy looking sapling). Allbn? Ah! this Is a Vermont tree that I ought to be familiar with. I would call that a hemlock tree. The Philosopher? Nonsense. That is a pepper ldge, one ol the gum lamlly. It grows altogether In the West Indies. Allen (thoughtfully)? How did It get here, then?

AN UNWILLINII SET. It was not until after two that the Philosopher came down from his perch unharmed. He then wanted Allen to try Ins hand at cutting down a small sapling, but the rhalrman ol the National Commit- ' tee replied that some of the Illustrated papers had nut him in a woodcut : but he wasn't a woodcutter. Mullaly being called on said If thev persisted in Ins chopping wood he'd "cut," and with thai he started In the direction of the evergreens, where tbelnnoh i awaited them. THE DINNER.

The table was set as usual In the ever green copse with the choicest delicacies, not only ' of the Turrytown ftirm of the Stuarts and the ( Chappaqua farm of the Oreeieys, but even with a . cold collat ion from the St. < loud.

"No," replied Allen, "he said he thought Mr. Greeley would be nominated." Nelson persisted, however. "No, Grant said to the tlKKAi.n correspondent thai he wished Greeley would be nominated at Baltimore, and then he'd know what he was fighting." "Then In the name of the Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress," said EttUUI Allen, "he'll have his wish, and won't knyw what lie's fighting either unl il lie's linked.

ANOTHER FEARFUL DISAS TER. ? ? ? ? ? - A Terrific Collision between Two Trains Going at Full Speed?' Three OJItcera Killed and about Twenty Passenger* Wounded. PiTTSuuRii, Pa.. June 22. 1872. At noon to-day a terrible accident occurred oil the Pittsburg, Washington and Baltimore Railroad, about three-quarters of a mile this side of Cun- > nellsvllle. A freight train going east wan running at full speed In order to reach tho switch at Connellsvllle before the upproach of tho mail. At the point mentioned, at a sharp curve on the road, both trains came together so suddenly that the engineers of the locomotives could hardly realize the fearful situation they were in, not had they tlmo to make much effort to check the speed of their engines, which came together with a fear ful crash, that could be heard a long distance off. The trains came together, and In an instant the two locomotives were a perfect mass of twisted and broken iron, while the escaping steam hissing from the boilers lent additional terror to the scene. The entire freight, train was wrecked, fragment* of It being strewn on each side of the track, while tho passenger train escaped with less Injury. On the former Henry saxton and the conductor, itobert I,ockhart, were killed, and the mail agent, Black burn, was injured to the extent that he cannot live over the night. Eight passengers were seriously Injured. Soma have broken legs, others broken arms and rib*,, and It Is expected that a number of these will die, while some nine others sustained injuries of a ies? severe character. The passenger train, with a number of the wounded, arrived here at ten o'clock to-night. The collision of the engines, going at the speed both were travelling, is said to have shook the earth In the neighborhood like an earthquake, and not one passenger on the entire train could utter a word for a full minute after the occurrence.
