says : Aa tbe express on tbs Burlington,

about 7 o'clock Saturday evening, wss
crossing the Bhill Rook liver, near the
town c! Rock tore , in the northern part of
the State, the bridge gave way, precipi
tating Into the stream two locomotives
with their tenders, and also s baggage
and caboose car, a distance of twenty
sevsn feet.
Ths engineer of ths first locomotive,
Mr. L. E. J odd, wss Instantly killed by
being burned beneath his engine, while
the fireman escaped unharmed. The en
gineer of the second locomotive, on the
other hand, escaped, while his fireman,
Mr. Robert Robston, was killed. The
brskeman, who waa at his post between
the baggage and piss"uger coach. Mr. J.
W. Bartlett, was also killed. The baggage-man
and a section-man had their legs
broken. A gentleman, by name A.
Towne, had three ribs fractured, while a
few others were variously bruised.
Fortunately the passenger coach stopped
Juat In time to prevent lie plunging with
tue rest, thus saving ths inmates. Mr.
Towne, with his broken bones, picked up
s baggage-master snd drew him to the
upper end of ths ear, which stood on a
steeply-inclined plane, who was taken
out of the window by the coeductor. Mr.
Towne then aank himself from exbans

THE 'UBERAL REPUBLICANS."

Brows Party.

The address just issued by the Lib
eral Republicans of Missouri is signed by
Governor B. Grata Brown, Lieuten-ant-Gov
irnor J, J, Gravelly, and other
State officers, and by a large number of
the senators and representatives in the
Missouri legislature. It Is one of the
most Interesting political documents ever
issued In Missouri We copy from It as
follows. It would certainly be well for
tbe Republicans ol this city and of sdjs
o at States to read tiis paper. It has
been before ns for some dsys, but this is
our flnt opportunity for its presentation
to.our readers. Tbe Missouri Republicans
says of
( art xt bagoiks and th b solid colored
votb:
We who fought to enfranchise citizens
hsvs next to enfranchise States. Plun
derers who have stolen the Republican
narxe end organisation bsve fastened
upon certain ot the impoverish Aand
strngglicg communities of the Son.- tJ
caose tbey fawn upon a candidate for -e.ectlon,
they are sustained by extreme
partitanahtp in governments so corrupt
snd cruel as to disgrace the land. None
who wish tbe true freedom o the colored
people can desire to see them banded to
gether in a solid mass, and wielded for
purely partinanends. We who denounced
and defied an executive aeeklng to control
tbe people ot one State cannot honestly
excuse thai power which has since mas
tered conventions with armed aoen in
Louisiana, and with birsllng officials in
New York, and countenanced the reten
tion of legal voters in Arkansas and
Texss. We have demanded a reform of
the civil service. It Is onr duty to make
Impossible such abases of executive pa
tronage and power. We demand the re
duction of the tariff to a revenue basis.
But the President sneers st this reform.
His power sod the par y caucus are used
to re-elect senators who pocket bills of re
peal passed by a two -thirds majority in
tbe bouse Republicans In congress are
denounced ss traitors to their party, it
they vote for tte defeat of monopolies
and relief for the people.

oppressed by taxation, hostile to that
denial of local government at the South
which ao greatly swells the national ex
penditures and hostile also to that blind
partisanship which mskes corruption in
evltsble, hall with gladness a movement
which, not bringing into power any party

From every part of the South oomes up

who shrink trom ths revival cf old Issues,

COIfDDCT OP BASTBBt C.TIE8,
In the Eastern States, where the inhe
rent and rind vine power of local self
government has been signally Illustrated
bv the overthrow of the greatest system
of inmtiUpal corruption ever witnessed,
and where tne soiest sna most nonorea
Democrats snd Republicans bve risen
above party divisions in s struggle of re
form, the people everywnere nan tne
event aa a sign that self government In
Southern States may soon be permitted
to overthrow com Dinst ions not less cor
rupt, and ths honest men of si parties
may unite In a victorious sssault upon tbe
greatest combination of all, that which
sits enthroned st Washington with a
scepter ready for its grasp, enriching
fsvorlties by monopolies and grants,
wielding government patronage, and dic
tating to Suites In elections snd conven
tions, WBT PXMO0B4CT IS SILBNT.
The time seems ripe for an uprising of
ths people, in kind not unlike thst which
swept this State In 1870. Look where yon
will from county to county, and from
State to State, the men who have been
prominent in ahaping policies and mould
ing public opinion, sre waiting for some
movement thst shsli give promise of s
hrighter future. Though they ssy little,
there is a feeling of profound dissatisfac
tion witb the policies now dominsnt.
Representatives of this feeling already
spesk in the oapltol and through the
press. Republican ststesmen of the
lsrgest influences snd proudest record are
so united in opinion ss to be ready for ac
tion wnenever Democratic withdrawal
may give needed opportunity. They are
known to all the world as founders of the
Republican party men who battled for
it against odds long before those who now
claim it as tbelr propertv bsd discovered
any virtue In Its Ideas. Such men whose
names will rise st oases to every memorv,
need no latter day converts to vouch for
their fidelity to Republican principles,
and if they raise a standard, no Republi
can will tear that the principles are to be
sscrlnced. On the other hand, tbe con
dition which slone can bring such men in
to united action, ths withdrawal of the
Dsmocratio party from ths coming
presidential career, seems well n!gh
assured. The sbiest snd most patriotic
of thst party feel and aay that
the time has come to put an end to die
puts ss to questions upon which it h-s
been defeated, and to open tbe war for
an effective effort tor reforms belonging
to tne present aru future an uprising or
the people to save the constitution and
tbe vital principles of self-gover-mon
Tbey know thst ss Ion? as Democracy is
in ins neia it win oe assailed most con
stantly, because more effectively, upon
past issues. They see thst the Demo
cratic psrty esnnot succeed, but that ob-
iecta desr to honest man of every party
can be achieved if it steps aside. The ef
fort to bring a powerful partv to a course
so unprecedented is oeingmaae with an
earnestness nonoraoie to the patriotism
of those who thus forget partv Drida and
rise sbove party ties, and If it shall suc
ceed no man can doubt that a host of Re
publicans will be found equally ready to
forget tbelr pride in a victorious put for
the sake of securing to our common coun
try a beneficent future.
TBB DEMOCRACY XPPBALSD TO.
To strengthen those Democrats who are
urging this withdrawal from conviction
of duty to the country rather than as a
stroke of party strategy, it seems to us
time for Liberal Republicans throughout
the country to svow their prino'ples and
show their readiness to take the llold
whenever ths opportunity shall be given.
A patriotio purpose needs no disguise. It
is due to Democrats to tell them what we
are able and willing, if left untrammeled
aw to past issues, to struggle for s osuse
precious to every patriot. It is due to sll
Rspablioans to warn them thst party fi
delity vill not lead us to sacrifice the wel
fare of our country. It is due, especially,
to I hose brave leaders who hsvs publicly
avowed ear principles, to assure them
thst they will not lack tbe support of
true Kjpu oncans.
TBB PBOPLB aSXIBST PABTXHNS.
There is little reason to doubt tb.
policies hostile to our principles will
ooi trol ths nationsl convention ; nor need
we hesitste to face the fsot. It is no dis
gra ee to be in s minority; tbe Republican
pat ty itself waa a minority when it waa
most pure. But we believe that of the
honeet voters of that party a majority
would sustain our efforts but for the power
of a combination of plunderers and office
holders, sided by the military supremacy
st the South, to pack conventions and
suppress tbe voice of those to whom poli
tics is not a trade. Whether overpowered
or outnumbered in one party, our princi
ples will command the support of a
majority of the whole people. Without
espousing tbe Ideas ot others, we can make
these principles triumphant whenever ths
psst can be buried. Shall we refuse out
of obedience to our psrty drill T By that
drill every arrest evil now demanding
reform haa been brought upon us. Is
it the will of s majority of the people, that
of right ought to rule this IsndT All par
ties become corrupt ; all parties sacrifice
pubiio welfare te retain power. The pur
est and safest of all governments may be
reached when a body of patriotio citisens,
acting together intelligently and inde
pendently, hold and use the balance of
power. To suoh combined efforts we in
vite the liberal Republicans of other
States. Let us sustain by public declara
tions those Issdsrs who are fighting for
reform. Let us everywhere svow our
readiness to sustain them at the ballot
box whenever we can do so without en
dangering ths settlements ot tbe past.
i-et us prepare by organisation for effec
tive co-operation throughout tbe country,
netting lorth our principles and purposes
run ail the rranxneas that cents a petn-
itlc motive. Why do not the Repablicana
of this city and of the South respond to
this Morthweitern movement!
A FRIBHTFUL ACCJDENT.
The Lynchburg Republican of Tuesday
gives ths following particulars of the ac
cident on the Virginia and Tennessee
railroad, by which two lives were lost. It
says:
A gentlemsn who assisted in collecting
tbs remains of Captain Robert A, Fogus,
whose body was burned in the accident at
Dry Hollow Bridge, on the Virginia and
Tennsesee railroad, last Saturday, Informs
us thst Captain Fogus was not killed by
the falling of the caboose, ss st first sup
posed. On tbe contrary, he made a des
perate effort to open the door of tbe oar,
which was impossible, it bsving fallen
upon the opposite end, and he having
nothing to stand upon while he removed
tbe door. He held with both hands
to the facing of the door with
anch desperstion aa only a dy
ing man could be capable of, and
talked calmly and reelgnedly of death,
telling his sympathising frtenps outside
that they could do nothing for him. A
large kerosene lsmp, filled with oil, was
overturned In the accident, and waa of
oonrse set on fire by the stove. The blaze
from the burning oil Ignited tbe whole
caboose almost instantaneously, aid Cap
tain Fogus continued to talk until bis
clothes were almost entirely burned off.
His friends outside advised him to d-vote
tbe few remaining momenta of his life to
prsysr, which he did. Tbe last word he
was beard to utter was, "Amen," when he
released his hold upon the door facing and
waa aeen no more.
Our informant says a human heart, not
burned at all, was found in the sshes of
the caboose, witb a few bones, none of
them more than six incbesfln length, snd
so soft thst thsy could scarcely be han
dled. It la not known whether the heart
wss thst of Csptt in Fogus or of the negro,
William Griffin, who waa also burned;
but the Captain's gold watch and ring,
aud the steel rim of his pocket-book were
found . The wsleh was blackened by tbe
fire, but wss still running when tsken
from the ashes, one hour and forty-fire
minutes after tbs sccident.
The negro, Griffin, though he died a hor
rible death, exhibited such heroic cool
ness sa would have done honor to the an
cient stoics. His body waa but slightly
injured by tbe accident, but bis feet were
crushed between the timbers of tbe cars,
snd all efforts to release him were unsvatl
ing. Wbsn his friends found that he could
not be aaved. tbey advised him to pray.
He pulled off a new pair of buckskin
gloves snd handed them to a negro who
bad done everything in his power to res
cue him, witb ths request that he would
keep them in remembrance of their friend
ship. He then commenced praying, and
continued to do so ss long as he could
speak.
