In order that no time might bo wasted, it

The Ajmjola Catastrophe The ter
rible railroad catastrophe at Angola, in
the western part of this State, turns out to
have been even more destructive of life
than h.ts been reported. There is now
reason to feir that the slaughter will not
fall short of sixty. The peionaJ horrops
connected with the atiair ar even soore
heart-rending than in ordinary railroad ca
tastrophes, and the appalling nature of the
entire scene is too shocking for the imagi
nation, The dead are out of all common
proportion to the wounded, and, consider
ing the circumstances, it is remarkable
that a spark of vitality was found in any
of the p:isscngers. The unfortunate vic
tims were not only burned to death, but
the great .part of them were past all recog
nition. Our first report gave the state
n&ent that the accident was understood to
have arisen from a defect in a rail ; a la
ter report says the train struck an iron
frog at a switch, and another report says
that the disaster was caused by the break
ir.g of a wheel, By one or other of these
means the car was thrown from the track
and precipitated over an adjacent embak
ment, with the ghastly results alfoady
mentioned. In any event, there is no
doubt that there wa culpability, horrible
culpability, on the part of the managers
and agents of the Lake Shore Railroad.
The charred remains of the entire body
of murdered victims have, we suppose,
been gathered up, and will probably be
snt to their families. The surviving
friends will forever mourn over their irre
parable losses. There will be suffering of
many kinds, for many long years to come,
in hundreds of hearts, because of the rail
way slaughter at Angola. For these things
it is out of the power of men to furnish
reparation or remedy.
But we again add Knottier to the thous
and warnings and appeals we have made
in times nast in r.-nn- " .:,i.
ever-recurr:r.g .'',oaa disasters. We de-
I "ana at nrc justice for the culprits, and
llic P1'00 tf something like common
. precautions against the recurrence of such
heart-rending outrages. A. Y. Tunes.
A Long Seakch for Relatives bt
Two Boys. About fifteen years since,
William G. Berry and family, two sons
and a daughter, removed from Charles
town, Mass., and located in New Ulm,
in Minnesota. Here they remained until
1862, the family having increased to three
sons and three daughters. It was in the
month of October of that year that the
hostile Indians of the Sioux tribe com
mitted their ravages in that State. One
afternoon two boys, eight and eleven years
of age, went out in pursuit of a stray cow.
When they returned at night they found
their father, mother, three sisters and
a brother all murdered, and some of them
scalped by the Indians. There was no
residence very near, and these two children
were left to their own resources. They
passed one farm house where a whole
family were hanging in front. They had
heard of Cbarlestown, and wished to reach
there, hoping to find the relatives or friends
of their parents.
These two children commenced their
journey, stopping on the way and doing
such work as they were able in various
towns, and at the end of five years they
reached Boston and Charlestown. But
no one could they find who had anv
knowledge of the family. They stopped
a while in Boston, then went to Glouces
ter, -where they sought an uncle named
It N. Heath. They were told that be
resided in Portsmouth. On Tuesday
evening they arrived here and appplied
for lodgings at the police station. Marshal
Johnson heard their story and gave them
accomodations, They can find nothing
of their uncle here, and are now at the
City Farm until some place for them can
be secured. The oldest, William Berry,
is now 1G, and Joseph is about 13 years
of age. They arc intelligent boys. A
reference to the records of the times shows
that Indian outrages were committed in
Minnesota at the time they state. Ports

As Ei-kphaxt Kills his Kekper.
The elephant Romeo, known as one, if
not the largest in the country, was placed
a short time since on a farm in Ilatboro,
Montgomery county, Pa., for winter quar
ters b' his owner, Mr. Forepauch, and
leaving his keeper, Mr. W. S. Williams,
in charge. On Wednesday last Mr. Wil
liam? went to the place where the elephant
was kept, for the purpose of washing the
face, tusks and portious of the body of
the animal, and while thus engaged Ro
meo attacked Mr. Williams, thrusting one
of his tusks into his body and treading
unon him. The cries of the keener nt-
. 1-
1 trarted a number of persons, when the
elephant .allowed the wounded man to be
removea without opposition. Williams
was so dreadt'u'.'v injured that he died in
about one hour after being attacked. The
elephant seemed to be pcrfeCJ'r docile
shortly afterwards, but it was thoi'c'11
proper to confine him with chains, so .as
to prevent future accidents. Mr. Wil
liams, the deceased, belonged to London,
in Canada West, and leaves a wife who
was with him at the time of bis death.
He had charge of Romeo for four or five
years, some fifteen years ago, and did not
again assume the duties of keeper until
one year ago.
If a lettenwriter trom Lima, Peru, is
to be believed, there is a region forty
leagues from that city, called the valley
cf Juaca, where the climate "restores
consumptive persons to health as certainly
as night4 follows day." No other medi
cine is required except the pure air of the
valley. Hundreds of persona are said to
go to Juaca from all parts of Peru yearly
to be cured of this terrible disease ; and
although the writer anticipates that medi
cal men "will smile at the idea of con
sumption being curable," he still avers
that every invalid excepting only those
in the last stage of the malady returns
physically sound after a residence in Juaca
of from one to two years. This state
ment ought to interest the medical readers
and those who tnay be afflicted with con
sumption, enough to induce pome inquiry
tnto tha trutti or fe'sity of it.

Am-ericah Waltham Watches. The
true value of Machinery applied to Watch
making is not that by its use Watches are
made rapidly, but that they are made cor
rectly, very few people know a Waltham
Watch should be superior to any other. In
the first place, at Waltham the Watch is re
garded as only a machine, to be constructed
Iik iny other. machine, on mechanfcal prin
ipk. If the watches &Te good it is because
the machinery u good. Of course there must
be no dt feet in the principle or plan of move
ment -no mistake in the sies or shapes of
the pieces of which it is composed nothing
wsLutirij-nerr properties, and no error in
tfceir pot-Uinns. These points ooce thorough
ly settled, it rests wholly with the machine
ry, constructed with iufinite diversity of form
and function expressly for the purpose, to
produce the finished pieces. By means of
multiplying gaiiges ud microscopes, tests
and inspection for the detection of wear in
the cutting tools, and for faults and flaws in
steel and stone are made Is accompany the
work in every stage from beginning to end.
As a necessary result, the watch goes togeth
er a perfect machine. Every part is found
to fit properly in its place. Eveiy pin may
be pushed till U pinches, auCl ?Prv Re.rew
turned home'. Iustead of teriih and feeble
action, the balance, even under the pressure
of the lightest mainspring, vibrates with a
wide and free motion, and tha brat has the
clear ringing sound always characteristic 6f
the Waltham Watch. The machine is a
timekeeper from the start.
Tbis system of watchmaking Is unknown
in foreign countries, and is entirely original
with the Waltham Company. The Compauy
claim that by it they produce watches that
cannot be equalled for every quality which
makes a watch valuable. Simple in plan
aud correct in principle, the movement is not
only beautifully finished, substantial, accu
rate and cheap, but is uniform in the minu
test details, not easily damaged, and when
repaired always as good as new. There are
different grades of finish in the different va
rieties of watches made by the Waltham
Gmpany, as there are different sizes and
shapes to suit all tastes and means ; bat ev
ery Watch that bears the genuine trade-mark
of "Waltham" is guarantied to be a good
one. and nobody need be afraid to buy it.
