The Meeting this Afternoon.
It must not he forgotten that the Mayor
has called the citizens of Washington to
*
meet at the City Ilall this afternoon at
04 o'clock, to dev se a plan for raising
money for the relief of our sister city New
Orleans, just now suffering as no Ameri
can city ever before suffered from the rav
ages of the yellow fever. We trust that
the gathering will be large, and that the
action of those present will demonstrate
that the people of Washington are neither
unmindful of their own remarkable henltli
and general business prosperity, nor that
they rest under obligations to that mcrci
lul Providence through whose favor they
enjoy these blessings, to extend the hand
of help to their bretheren who are now
suffering, afar off though it be, such ca
lamities. under this terrible scourge.
i irc iW'.Hfiyfl'aiia >nt' in mc
midst of a terrible quarrel with their
colonial government, reminding us in
many of its details of what we read of
the early troubles between the royal
governors and councils, and the people
of the (then) British Colonies of North
America. In this case, however, the
colonists possess advantages vastly supe
rior to those which surrounded our fore
fathers. The marked difference in the
ideas of the respective ages concerning
government, is to them an advantage in
calculably greater than any enjoyed on
this continent, amid the circumstances
leading to the times that "tried men's
souls." Britain, too, is tired of colonies,
however much her commercial interests
may keep her wedded to the policy ol
holding possessions wherein, ns in India,
the mass of the people are virtually slaves.
The discovery of gold in Australia is
causing her ports to swarm with emi
grants better fitted than any other class
to work out her independence, from their
qualities of" mind as well as character:
shrewd, desperate and uncontrolable men.
as a large portion of them are. Australia
already possesses an immense amount of
shipping to be owned in a colony, and
the mass of her people resemble those
of the United States in their enterprise,
far more than the present inhabitants of
Canada, our next door neighbors. The
existing condition of the Chinese empire,
too, is a very tempting bait, alluring
them to break with the mother country ;
ft r they see that it must come under the
virtual control of some European nation
or of the United States in the next half
century, if not under theirs. Indeed, it
strikes us that, in the distance, we have
more to dread in the probable commercial
rivalry of the Australians in the East,
than in that of the mother country.
Horrible Steamship Accidents Ahead.
We have heard it stated that hundreds
of thousands of dollars have been bet on
both sides of the Atlantic upon the com
parative speed of the Cunard steamer Ara
bia, and the Collins line's Aictic, which
are to leave New York together on the
*20th inst. The Arabia was built, doubt
less, expressly to beat any vessel of the
Collins line. It is very certain that the
people in New York expect such a con
test in this coming next trip. It strikes
us that it will l?e strange under such cir
cumstances if either of these steamships
carry out more than a very l>eggarly ac
count of empty passenger berths.
Hot.?The Baltimore Sroi of this morn
ing says that the thermometer in the Sun
office yesterday reached 92 degrees in the
shade, and that in other places it reached
98 and 100 degrees.
So They Oo!
The railroad murders occurring yester
day, may be written down to be a fair
comment upon the verdict of th* New
Jersey Coroner's jury, in the case of the
Camden and Am boy Railroad Company's
murders, perpetrated a day or two since.
This jury found that the company were
blameless, because they had issued orders
which their employees would not obey.
"Who is responsible for the employment of
such agents ? the company or their killed
and wounded? If there is any soundness
in the doctrine that what one does by an
agent, he does by himself, then this plea
of the jury, in behalf of their owner's
pockets, is sheer balderdash. Their find
ing amounts to the simple subterfuge that
the company could not control their own
servants, and are, therefore, blameless.
The State of New Jersey is notoriously
practically owned by this railroad corpo
ration. Though we did not know before
that they had a bill of sale of the con
sciences and oaths of her (New .Jersey's)
juries, to l>e prostituted whenever it may
Ik; necessary to screen their perpetration
of wholesale murders after this fasluon,
from proper scrutiny and the action ol
a healthy public opinion. The great mis
fortune in this case is, that the killed and
maimed were not this same twelve ex
tenuating direct or indirect pensioners of
J the Camden and Amboy mil road mo
nopoly.
Nebraska.
I
Western journals report that in spite of
the efforts of the United States authori
ties in that quarter, emigrants are pour
ing over the line into Nebraska Territory,
under the assurance of Col. Benton, the
Hon. Mr. Hall and others, that they can
not be legally removed by the troops.?
Much of the territory is very desirable,
and its proximity to very thickly settled
portions of Missouri lias, up to very re
cently, made the taskofguarding it against
unlicensed settlement exceedingly diffi
cult. The authorities, however, did man
age to accomplish this object until men
in distinguished positions came forward
to dispute, thus, the legality of the system
of managing Indian territory and United
States territory which the Government
has pursued unquestioned, we believe, to
this time. We have no idea that the De
partments of the Interior and War can
submit to have their jurisdiction in this
case set at nought, without virtually
abandoning all pretence of authority for
the Government in the far West. Yet it
strikes us that if left unchecked for a
?o ?' -- x .
than twice as many troops as are now in
the service of the United States, to turn
out of Nebraska all who have thus gone
into it. On the whole, this bids fair tc
prove one of the most difficult and embar
rassing questions with which the new
Administration is to Ik? confionted.
The Recent Fatal Duel in South Carol'na.
Our comments on this affair, so far.
have been the means of getting us reliable
information concerning its particulars.
We have been thus favored with a sight
of reliable letters from Charleston, from
which we gather that Mr. Legarc was en
gaged to a young lady in Columbia. Her
friends inquired of Dunovant what was
the character and habits of L. ? This
coming to his cars, he inquired of I).
what he had answered: and found that he
had spoken favorably of him. liut not
satisfied with a verbal statement, he de
manded it in writing, which was refused.
Legare challenged on this refusal. The
distance was twelve paces. Le'gare
fired at the word "one," and missed:
Dunovant fired at the word "two," and
killed his antagonist. The survivor was
wholly uaskillcd in the use of the pistol,
having never before had anything to do
with a duel. Legare, on the contrary,
was, notoriously, a crack shot, having, a
few days before the affair came off, (in
practising,) placed forty-eight out of fifty
balls in a card at the word. He became
very nervous on starting for the ground,
and remarked that he felt a presentiment
that he would fall, notwithstanding his
skill with the pistol. He was formerly in
the Navy as a Midshipman, from which
he was dismissed, it is said, for running
a sword through a marine.

day's paper, some beautiful lines from
the polished pen ofG. W. Ci ttkr, Esq.

Spirit of the Morning Press.
The Ur.ivn reviews the political mani
festations apparent in the late elections,
and very sensibly comes to the conclusion
that the people have not been gammoned
j by the efforts of disappointed locofocos
to create the impression that the Admin
| tration is leaning to freesoilism. The
| .editor again explains in this article that
the President, in awarding his patronage,
looks to no man's antecedents; treating
all as Democrats, who, having aided to
secure the triumph of the Democratic
party in the last election, continue to
stand on the Baltimore platform. The
| same paper again discusses the Kossta
j atfair, saying that Mr. Brown claimed
I the right to protect K., first, on the
! ground that having taken the prelimi
nary oath in this country, he had vir
tually got beyond Austria's right or
power to control hijn as a citizen; and
next, that under Turkish laws, we had a
right to protect him there. The editor
also urges the pressing necessity for in
creasing the Navy of the United States.
The Intelligencer's columns this morn
! ing treat, for the most part, of the con
dition of Europe, embracing letters from
its Ixuidon and Paris correspondents, and
a leader on the Turco-Russian question.
In the latter, the editors intimate from
? the facts before them, that Russia has the
j game, for the present, altogether in her
own hands; demonstrating the truth of
this position too, it strikes us, with irre
sistible force. On the whole, the foreign
I matter appearing in the Intelligencer's
j columns is, as a general thing, much
more reliable than disquisitions on foreign
affairs appearing in any other American
journal.
The Republic discusses the present atti
tude of France and England with refer
ence to the Turco-Russian question, and
the probable fate of Turkey.
The Clipper continues its long drawn
battle against the Roman Catholic Church,
an anti-Catholic German coming to the
editor's assistance on this occasion.
The Boston and Worcester Bailroad Disaster.
Yesterday, as we were about going to
press, we received a telegraphic dispatch
announcing the occurrence of the terrible
1 disaster which proved so destructive ol
? life on the Boston and Worcester Railroad,
i Since which, we have received the follow
' ing particulars:
The accident o*?urrcd about K o'clock
? this (12th inst.) morning. The train
from \\ hitinsville, with a verv large ex
cursion party of ladies and gentlemen on
1 board, on its way to Providence, came in
b,,n*
i 1 rovidencc. 1 he crash was fearful. Both
i trains were going at full speed. The lo
eomotives were completely driven into
each other, and a large number of car?
1 thrown ofl the track and smashed intc
fragments.
'J he passengers, ladies and gentlemen
i aud children, were thrown violently out
I some crushed under the wheels, and oth
j ers literally jammed up among the shat
i tered ruins. '1 he scene was appalling ir
, the extreme?the shrieks of the wounded
'; an<l dying made the blood run cold. As
far as can be ascertained, about twenty
! men, women, and children were killed
J instantly, and some twelve or fifteen sc
; dreadfully mangled that no hope is en
I tertained for their lives. Many other?
slightly and some dangerously injured,
Most of the killed and wounded are from
' * bridge and Whitinsville.
<>n the Uxbridge train the third pas
senger car leaped over the second, killing
three persons who were escaping from
| the windows.
'J he collision occurred near Pawtucket.
! and it is now ascertained that twelve
lives are lost, and about twenty-five mort
or less in jured.
The following are the names of the
killed :
Rev. Mr. Penny, Episcopal Clergyman,
officiating at Grace Church, Providence ;
Mr. W ood, of Xorthbridge ; John R. Per

Mr. Southwick, Superintendent of the

jured on the head.
One poor boy had his arm torn out

The dead were horribly mangled. Nine

Mr W*. C. Zantmngfr'* AccorsTs.?We
have refrained from alluding to ibis subject
for some time past. in order to avoid doing in
justice to Mr. Zantiinger. it being very diffi
cult to treat such a subject properly until the
accounts in question had been finally audited.
In this case, this has at length been done, and
the Auditor shows a balance due from Mr. Z.
of a little over $10,200. This balance is due
on account of the balance due on the amount
placed in his hands by the State Depart
ment, on account of the Portugal indemnity
fund. The Secretary of State, we learn, has
demanded the instant payment of this balance.
Mr. Zantzinger, through his agent, is un
derstood to allege that tho Government
should look to Corcoran & Riggsforit, having,
some nine since, received his check on their
house for that amount, after thry had certified
that there was that sum due Z. ui>on his ac
count with them for this Portugal indemnity
money. It seems that C. A R. refuse to pay
the check, because Mr. Z. has overdrawn on
another account. The Secretary of State re
fuses to look to Mr. Zantzinger* bankers for
this balance, and has probably made up his
mind to direct the District Attorney to take
the case in hand, under the Sub-treasury law,
on Monday, unless the balance is liquidated
according to his own view of the manner in
which it should be iettled. ere 3 p. m. of that
day.
' It seem? that this indemnity money has not
j yet been in the treasury. Mr. Webster drew
j it through Corcoran k Riggs, and directed
j them, on receiving it, to place it to the credit
j of Mr. Zantzinger, on whom tho duty of pav
ing it over to the distributees was devolved.
Mr. Zantzingers agent, we hear, demand?
that the Comptroller of the Treasury shall
certify to Mr. Z's indebtedness on this ac
count in the sum struck as the balance by the
Auditor, while the Secretary of State con
tends that the Comptrollor has nothing to di
with the matter, the indemnity money nevei
having yet been in the treasury ; and. further
that a failure to pay it on demand, whether it
has ever beeu in the treasury or not, is a vir
tual infraction of the sub-treasury law, tobc
so treated by him immediately. The differ
ence seems to be one of form, it not being
alleged that the money is not due to the De
partment If we understand it properly, th?
Secretary holds Z. responsible for it, whiU
Zantzinger insists that the Government inusi
now look to his bankers for the money. W?
presume that the money will certainly b(
paid. '
An Important Qiestion Settled,?Recently
application was made from Watertown,N. J.
to the Government, to demand tho extraditior
of an individual named Anson Wing, who hat
fled from that quarter to Canada with acbargi
of larceny hanging over him. The Attorney
General has had the questions involved undei
consideration ; and, we have reason to believe
i decides that larceny is not a crime undei
i which we can demand extradition under th<
treaty of 1841. He has probably further ad
vised against making an application in anj
case for the body of our fugitives from justice
i who may not be charged with some crime es
] pecially enumerated in the list of the offence;
, found in the treaty ; this government having
( heretofore refused to return fugitives de
' uianded on other charges. There is a na
i tional poli:ioal necessity for a strict adherens
to this ruling, which must forcibly strike al
who realize how much trouble a governmen
of the Old World may give us, if we once bcgii
to strech the number of pretences under whicl
they may arrest their refugees and fugitives
j who have reached our shore.

! conferred on F. MeNerhany, Esq., of: his city
There were more than a dozen applicants foi
it. among them being many gentlemen wht

! We are sorry to say that the contest for th<
place, however, gave rise to much " slinging
' of slush upon the character and standing ol
j more or less of the aspirants and their respec
I tivo backers. However, in the selection o
Mr. MeNerhany. wo feel assured lhat the Sec
I rotary of the Navy has, emphatically, met th<
1 wish of a large majority of the citizens ol
Washington without distinction of party. H<
is a young man of tine talents and attainments
wholly self-made and exceedingly populai
even among his political opj^nents, thougl

this morning:
President Pierce sits on a horse hand
somely. He rides much about Washington
on a fine black animal. He appears to take
remarkably good care of his health, and
is very social among the citizens. Both
he and Mrs. Pierce usually go to church
twice every Sabbath, alternating between
the and the 9th street Presbyterian
churches. When he goes alone he gene
rally walks. It is surprising how soon
the people of Washington forget on which
side of politics a public man stands, if
they happen to like him personally. j
