held a verv la rye meeting at Lucas place
lo-nieht. to ratify the nominations of
Grant and Wilson. It is estimated that
five thousand people were present. Sen
ator Carpenter of Wisconsin, ex-Governor
Oglesby of Illinois, and Senator
Henderson of Missouri, were the princi
Senator Carpenter reviewed the his
tory of the party since the election of
Lincoln, showed up the opposition of
the Democratic party to all Republican
measures during and since the war, dis
cussed the Liberal movement and ex
plained the action of the Democrats in
connection therewith, reviewed the ad
ministration of Grant, claiming it
to have ieen a success, both as regards
a foreign and domestic policy, and ex
posed many of the schemes of the
Liberal Republicans, instancing the
arms investigation and other plans to
lreak down the President, and gave a
vivid description of General Grant as a
l'ri -ident and roan, claiming that since
Washington the country had not had so
Democratic a President or one who

frequently applauded. Oglesby gave a

President has been so bitterly assailed as
tiraut not even Washington, Jackson
or Lincoln, and the people should see to
it that he was not sent to private life in
disgrace. He also referred to the nu
merous assaults made on the President's
character, and claimed that nothing had
Ix-eu proved against bim, and not a stain
rusted on his character. He paid his
renpects rather sharply to Governor Pal
mer, Senator Trumbull and other Illinois
Republicans. He stated that be should
make tbe campaign in Illinois an open
and bold one, and charged that the
meeting of Governors Brown, Palmerand
Senators Schurz, Trumbull and others,
at Springfield on the twenty-sixth, is to
batch treason and stab tbe Republican
arty, which, in the past, has so highly
liouored them, and said the Republicans
will carry Illinois by fifty to one hun
lred thousand majority. He gave a
most scathing review of Senator Schurz,
dwelling especially upon what he called
that vutlenien's assumption of political
morality, his advocacy of the civil ser
vice reform, etc., and dwelt at some
length upon tbe tariff question, reduc
tion of taxex by Congress, and other
measures of the party, and closed with
an eloquent appeal to the people to per
petuate the Republican principles and
carry that party on to another victory
After Ogleabv's speech an immense
liece of fireworks, eighteen feet square,
.k ith tbe names of Grant and Wilson in
varied colored lights, was displayed
with splendid effect. There was also an
abundance of rockets, Roman candles
and other fireworks, and music. Alto
gether the meeting may be regarded as
a success. Oglesby was listened to very
attentiveaud frequently received ap
plause. The meeting is very enthusias
tic. Ex-Senator Henderson is now
speaking, and although it is quite late,
the crowd is very large.

night express train went down past this
place at half-iast twelve o'clock this
morning, full of passengers, among
whom were many ministers of the Eng
lish Church on their way homeward
from the Synod at Toronto. About
eleven miles iielow Belleville station the
engine jumped from the track, carrying
death and fearful torture to scores of pas
sengers in the forward cars. The baggage-car
remained ou the track and
the smoking-car and second-class pas
senger car, leaving them on top of the
engine, exposed to the escaping steam
from the boilers. Here the poor crea
tures were helplessly pinned for some
time, breathing the vapors of death and
suffering all the agony of immersion in
a boiling cauldron of suierheated water.
R. M. Reddy, an eye-witness, says
that immediately after the accident he
went to the second-class car. It and the
smoking-car were telescoped and on the
locomotive, the steam from which, issu
ing from the cars, was so dense that he
could see nothiug. One after another
were taken from the openings. Crow
bars were put into requisition by the
passengers rrom uie nrst-class cars, all
of whom escaped injury, and openings
were made. Many were found entan
gled, and were extricated with the ut
most difficulty, the timbers having to be
broken. Five persons were fouud dead,
and were carried to the roadside, where
the wounded lay for nearly three hours,

the least injured walked about swathed
in bandages, and conversed freely about

Boston, Mass., June 22. The audi
ence at the Coliseum to-day was some
what larger than any day this week.
Freischuetz's overture, Heller's Ameri
can hymn, and Straus's concert waltz
(New Wren), were finely given, the lat
ter being encored. Madame Lentner
outdid her previous rendition of the
"Vienian Waltz," which she repeated
ou encore. The "Star Spangled Ban
ner" was next given, Mrs. Houston
West singing the solo in a style that
elicited an encore and repetition, and
that was warmly applauded. One of the
principal features of the day was the
performance of a German band in
Innhausezer's overture, which met
with the warmest of receptions. The
band left the stage against the
desire of the audience. After playing
"Hail Columbia," Abt's "When the
Swallows Homeward Fly" was given by
special request, and led by the composer.
Then a combination of one hundred and
fifty colored singers, led by Hyer's sister
and the Nashville troupe, sang "Mine
Eyes Have Seen the Glory of uie Com
ing of the Lord" to the "John Brown"
tune, which was repeated by chorus, and
sending tbe audience into raptures of
boisterous enthusiasm. On its repetition
the audience joined in, and the perform
ance closed with tbe popular rendition,
by chorus and audience, of "The Morn
ing Light is Breaking."
The Evening Post says editorially of
the ticket nominated by the Fifth
Avenue Hotel bolters: "There is not
much reason for believing that the next
President of the United States will be
Groesbeck. But, whatever others may
do, we are not disposed to throw any
ridicule on a movement which is as sin
cere and direct as this."

New York, June 22. The Geneva
special says the question of Indirect
claims have been definitely settled, and
In a manner unexpected by members of
the court ; the American agent and con
sul having been instructed to declare
that the United States did not seek
money awards for indirect damages, but
only desired a settlement of principle.
Lord Tenterden, on the part of his
government called attention to the
seventh article of the treaty, which gave
the arbitrators only authority to con
sider the claims in relation to money
awards and to submit the same: but
since tbe United States have declared
they did not seek money awards for
these classes of claims, they could not
properly be entertained by the court.
The American consul thereon de
manded a judgment in this issue by the
court. The court took time for its deci
sion, but it is known to have decided
against the admissibility of the indirect
claims. The judgment will be delivered
when the court meets on the twenty
sixth instant, and it is reported will be
acceptable to both governments.

Upon the moonlight scenery here.
It was a happy thought of those who
propose to transfer dancers and gay plea
sure seekers of tne city from sylvan re
treats and srreen swards in suburban
parks to the sparkling moonlit bosom of
tne great river. Splendid as will ! the
pageantry of the Masonic fraternity of
to-morrow, and attractive as tins last
great picnic will be made, those enjoy
mg pleasures it proffers will be inipa
tient, and the excursion and dance
upon the river will constitute
themes of conversation in every coterie,.
and waltzers to-morrow night will move
tne more dreamily because or delightful
visions of the coming dance beneath tbe
stars, and above them as they too dance
in the unsteady depths of the mighty
river. It is strange that the youths of
the city, so addicted to social delights
that country dances and excursions have
been of daily recurrence, have not re
sorted to the river as well as the wild
woods. Monotonous as are the shores of
the majestic stream, Its grandeur and
majesty are inspiring, and poeti
cal fancy and splendid eloquence
are alike inspired by its deep-sounding
waves, its broad expanse, Its endless,
tireless ocean-seeking current. The
brain must be unproductive, and that
fancy fettered by stupidity, that does
not disco ver "joy unconfined " in every
incident of a steamboat excursion by
moonlight on tbe broad bosom of the
Mississippi. Next Thursday evening
at half-past six o'clock the pretty
steamer Emma C. Elliott, with two full
bands of music on board, will leave the
wharf with the merriest and iMppiest
five hundred pleasure-seekers that ever
kept time to undulations of music on
the moving waves. Every pretty girl of
the city and suburbs will share the
fleasures of this delightful evening,

LATEST BJUOKT BY TKLKOBAPH.
New York, June 22. Everything
auiet even for Saturday. The New
Bulletin says everything appears to
combine at present to render trade quiet.
Among the causes at work is the high
cost of the stanle articles of produce.
the impetus given to the laying in of
stocks by retailers last season on tnai
account, over speculation in certain
classes of imported goods, the disturbing
effect of stocks and the chances of a
short, moderate business being done
duriue the fall on political accounts. Of
these the two first appear to claim tbe
most attention, as lying most directly
at the root of tne evil. In foreign goods
business is at a stand still. Burlaps are
quoted as follows: "i ounce, 10c; 8 ounce,
10Jc;9 ounce, 11c; 10 ounce, lljc; 11
ounce, llc: being a reduction of Jc
since the last alteration in values. It is
proposed to add an additional day to
the holiday time of the year among dry
goods men as compared with last year,
and to close the stores from Wednesday
evening at three o'clock until Monday
morning at eight o'clock. The July
