1MM i Ini inj MJEMSLIS. TE2ST., FRIDAY. A.TJGH7ST 13. 1SSO. e.st.a.:b:l tsh:ei 1840. VOL. 4 1 9 1 THE WORK. r TIE BTATB COI- The Democratic State convenlion hat ad journed after three dais of labor without parallel in the history of the politic of Ten nessee. The most momentous party lather ing since 1860, it has passed into history also, as the only one that ever prodaced serious schism, or anything like defiant op position. Perhaps this was inevitable. To those who participated in its deliberations it may seem so; bat there are many thoughtful men who have watched the proceedings as they have been reported in the newspapers who think otherwise who are ot opinion that on one of the points always insisted upon by the Appeal- har mony might Lave . been maintained and a nomination mad? to which even Wilson and Savage ni:ght have been willing to yield ascent and support. The submis ion to the people of whatever proposition for the settlement ot the S ato debt may be - agreed upon would have silenced all clamor and satisfied all Deposition. This is true Democratic doctriue it is a doctrine that, il we know the rank and file of the party of Tennessee, we fear they will in list upon, even to the endaagerment of a ticket that is most acceptable and a platform that in all ether respects is thoroughly in keeping with the history and pnrposes of a party, in the ascendancy of which the republic found its growth and its largest measure of prosperity. Division or schism was a thing to be especially avoided just now. As President Lincoln would say, this is no time to swap horses. The stream that separates us frcm success is swollen aud turbid, and we have need for all the strength we can muster to conquer all the difficulties that beset n and achieve a victory that will plaoe as beyond a coating' encv like that of 1876. and secure to the country the benefits and blessings of an ad' ministration of Federal affairs upon Demo cratic principles. We can ill afford to lose even one man; we cancot afford to lose many who are in any eente representative, and who cling so tenaciously to views that the vote last year on the fifty and four propo sition convinces us are held by very many thousands in every part of the State.. The Appeal's cpiniocs on the question of the payment of the State debt are well known, not only in every county in the S ate, but throughout the country. Ever 'since John C. Brown's 'administration we ' have advocated the maintenance of the pub lio credit, even though a sacrifice bad to he made in doing so. But we have also advo cated, as a po'.icy consonant with all the precedents of the Democratic party, the sub mission to the people of whatever plan or 'proposition" the legislature might deem fair and reasonable upon agreement wit'u the creditors of the State. We think to still. - This is not a question of trusting or dis trusting legislators. It is a question grow ing out of the fact tbbt one legislature can not bind another; that the law, however solemnly enacted, that is passed by one leg- islature may be repealed by another, as has been rfone in the very case which has for years con fused our politics and at last resulted . in a division that we chronicle with sorrow, the more so that those who felt it their duty to make it to make it . in defiance of the majority were hooted as they left the hall aud bailed with derisive laughter and jeers and have seen proper sines to retaliate with charges of corruption and railroad direction and domination. Some allowance must be made for the cxcitcmeat of the occasion, although many considerate and sensible people will say that it was not a time for excitement, it was not the place for excitable people, but rather for the coolett reason, the most mat a red judgment and the best statesmanship of the State. - Some of this was present and much of it was heard, but to no avail so tar as compromise was con cerned. This is the one b'tmish to an other wise good work. The p'atform is in all other respects one to be proud of. . It is strong, yet clear in statement and within a brief com pa. s satisfies the pubho expectancy oa all the leading questions of the day. It indorses tbd platform and the nominees of the Cincinnati convention ; it declares very positively for the maioteoHnee intact of the public credit, Bute and Federal; it expresses a willingness on tuo part of the people to meet the State's creditors in the spirit of generous compromise which they oflV; - it . insists upon increasing the com mon school facilities . tor pub lio education and their speedy develop ment to the perfection they have reached in other States; it demtudi local rates from the railroads in the interest j the planter and the merchant; it insists upon economy in the administration ot the government, and the curtailment of fees and salaries wherever and whenever consistent with the proper dis charge of public duties; and it denounces the usurpations and Cfnlral.rDg tetden ciesof the Repub ican party. Concise, but plain, this is a statement of principles that will satisfy the Democracy, and upon which the leaders can to before the people of the State. The standard-bearer selected to do fend it is worthy the responsible and ex alted position. Bis long experience in publio life, in the Federal and Confederate congress, and upon the bench, acd his sympathy with the pfople oi thi south through all the perilous years tir.ee 1360, blJ bis well known conservatism, fits biw peculiarly for leadership in a crisis that calls for the utmost tact, for firmaei?, for knowledge of the peo ple and their puspose, Tor a well-balanced sense of justice as between the bondholders and taxpayers, and for power upon Uu tump and the platform greater than any of the opponents he is likely to be confronted by. But, magnetic and powerful though he is, Judge Wright will need tbe aid of all the other able debaters of tbe party, for tbe can vasa bids fair to be a stormy one. The spirit of contention never wi j rife as it is likely to be between this and the day of election in our own party, and we doubt if ever the Republicans of Tennessee have made as strenuous an effort to profit by Damocratio division as they will between now and November. We go into the can vass handicapped by a division that we now fear is more serious than wa oa Wednesday predicted, and nothing but a vigorous, yet conciliatory, policy will save us from a defeat by which the enemy may', profit. Besides a governor we have to elect a legislature aad members of congress. Oa the complexion of the first ; depends whether Bailey is to be re-elected cr another Democrat is to take his place in the senate, and tbe loss of two or mora of the latter might make a Diniocratic majority in the lower haute of congress impossible. There is work and plenty of it for all hands until the second of November.

At midnight dispatch was sent to Camden for thirty-five stretchers. The news of the acci dent caused intense exciteuient here, and when the delaved ex oress arrived ebout mid- Bight a large crowd had assembled at the depot. Wbea the train arrived there were calls for the excursion-train hands, but, it was understood, they had prudently changed their uniforms. Offing to the excitement prevailing to night but few of the names of tbe victims can be given, it is learnea, however, that a man named Sweeney, from West Philadelphia, died soon alter tbe accident, and that a lady named Smith is ex pected to die. . j .

There were nearly two thousand people from Philadelphia on the excursion, the ex citement among those looking tor friends at the wbarf as the wounded were brought over trom Camden was intense, some of. the women bad gooe to the seaside in light sum mer costumes, which proved slight protection against the steam jets, and the only difficulty ia to see where they are sot burned. They were carried fiom tbe cars a mass of flour and c tton, under which the human form was scarcely distinguisha le, and but tor the low moans they seemed dead. At two o clock this morning ten ambulances were full and a number of stretcbets proved inadequate Several of the victims still remained in the cars. BCKMB OF THB COLLISION. The following description of the scene at the time of the collision is from Atlantio City this morning: Some of the persons oa the rear platform of the first train jumped to the ground and thee rushed panic stricken back into the car. Tbe locomotive came bounding on and crashed into tbe rear car, still stand ing upon the bridge, with such force that tbe ergine fairly plowed a furrow half way into the car and lifted the roof off the car over the smoke-stack. The shock broke one of the cylinders of the boiler, and the scalding water was instantly poured out upon the affrighted ana helpless occupaats ot the car. lhe rain had been pouring down, and all the windows ot the car were down, aad the steam tailing instantly added to the horrors of tbe occasion and tbe suffering of the victims. From out the concealing vapor came the wails of chil dren, tbe shrieks of women and the yells of men. lhe peoplw on tbe Urn train ran pell mell from the cars or jumped through the windows, and it was some time before they became sufficiently composed to make earnest efforts to rescue the injured and relieve their sutterings. how rr OCCTJRBKD T. B. Judze, president of St. Ann's library institute, makes the following statement: There were about thirteen hundred persons in the two sections of the tram. Both sec tions lett Atlantic City so close together that I had my choice of trains. 1 got on the last section aad was in the rear car when the crash occurred. Joe shock was a strong one and several persona were thrown from their seata. 1 here v. as no appearance of panic but soon the people begaa to leave the car to see what was the matter. I saw a sight which 1 can t describe; injured passengers were being drawn trom tbe car and the wa ter on each side ot the track was filled with persons who jumped from the train aad were up to their waists ia the river. A boat soon pot out and picked them np. Oa the em bankment of tbe railroad, which is about sevea feet high, were the sufferers from the crushed car groaning in their agony, and ia a conspicuous place lay the dead body ot voting Sweeney. I think the railroad com- yotmg Dweeoey. I think the railroad com pany guil'y of gross negligence in ruajing sections so close. There were twenty-four cars ia the train, sixteen in tbe first section aad eiglit in the other. The soene of the ac cident ia a straight stretch of track, about two hundred yards from May Landing sta tion. Part of tbe first section was on Great Egg Harbor river bridge wbea the crash came. ABBI8TANT-TRAINKA8TKK M. MILLS states that the air-break had undoubtedly been tampered with, whether by accident or desiga he could not say. He thinks some one must have put it out of order by tooling with it, in one ot the closets of the cars through which it passes. OTHZa DEATHS KKPOBTKD.

SOLID MEN OF THE NATION Assembled In Convention at Saratoga to Consider Ways and Means to Pre rent Their Wealth from Too Suddenly Taking Unto Itself Wicks ' ' ' : Letter from the Secretary of the Treas ury A Dissertation on the Bank Ing Laws of the States and the Nation A Question of Japanese Etiquette Saratoga, August 12 The bankers' con vention resumed its session to-day. Alex Mitchell, of Milwaukee, was re-elected pres ident, and Jacob D. Vermilye first vice- president. A vice-president was also chosen from each State and Territory. An execu tive council was also chosen. ' Resolutions in favor of a general bankrupt law, indorsed by tbe executive council, were laid on the table. A letter from Secretary Sherman was read. A letter was received on the banking sys tems of the nation and State from an early day to the present time, and closed by stating that congress, mindful of the difficulties heretofore experienced, aimed in the new system to secure as far as possible a uniform national currency, amoly secured to the holders, and this was effected by requiring a deposit with tbe government by tbe bank of issue of more than equal amounts ot United States bonds, and giving the government a first lem upon tbe assets ot the bank, lhe emi nent success of this system need not be re counted. In no case has tbe value ot the national bank notes fallen below the valu9 of the United State) notes, in which they were redeemable. The present generation can hard ly realize the importance of this stability of value, which has come to be accepted as a matter of course. - The value of State banks has constantly fluctuated in mercantile cen ters, according to the location of the bank, from one to twelve or filteen per cent. Merchants could not tell when the State banks only were in being. Merchants could not estimate in times of panics the value of tbe bank-bills they were forced to take. The national banking law has been so amended now as to issue so that the banks can furnish mare or less currency, as tbe businesi of the country demands. The receipt, safe keeping and disbursement of public moneys has also been simply secured by the national banking law. The government deposits in the na tional banks to June 30. 1880. from the be ginning, bad reached 14.349,903.831; from revenue officers and disbursing officers, 8800, 000,000 A vole of thanks was given Secretary Sherman for his interesting paper.

It would be diffi cult to pronounce this a corpse. The Democratic party carried this country through peace and war, and saw It rise from colonies to a Union of groat and nrosnerous States. It administered the govern ment with economy and wisdom, and under It tbe people were prosperous and happy.
