T?i Second Trial or Hirbkrt.?When
we conceded our report yesterday, at the time
of r >D8 to PreM' Patrick Keating was on the
jtand, *nd the counsel for prosecution and de
fence were in the midst of a warm content,
raiM-i *>7 the attempt of the defence to draw
from the witness whether other witnesses for
the prosecution had j >ined with him to raise
a food to fee counsel.
The Court decided that with reference to
what contributions had been made for a re
taining fond each witness must be examined
separately as he came up.
The witnev in answer to a question of Mr.
Jirwiley said he had not made an engagement
with any persons to go out and solicit subscrip
Captain Blandipg, a witness for defence.
wm here, by eon-em of the prosecution, per
mitted to testify, as it was necessary for bim
to leave the city?Witness was at willards'
on the morning of the affray; was standing in
front of the office about eleven o'clock in con
versation with a gentleman; heard a noise in
the dining room. which he first thought was
the breaking of crockery, but the noise in
creasing. it occurred to him that a fight was
going on among the waiters; walked leisurely
to the door of the dining room, and, while
standing at the door, saw several persons en
gaged in a conflict near the pantry door; here
person- were bent down considerably behind
the table; it was a violent struggle of men all
in a cluster; he was convinced it was some
fracas of waiters, and turned to go back; just
a* he tarned he heard the report of a pistol;
thisdrtw his attention to the scene; saw Mr!
Herbert emerge, a* it were, from this mass of
men. and then for the first time, recognised
Mr Herbert as being in the fray; oould not
say if there were more than three or four per
sons in the affray; thinks if there were not
more than two he should have noticed it; did
rot recognise any person in the group; did not
see any person in a white hat and apron; can
not say whether the cook was there or not
Cross examined.?Did not see Col McKay
in the dining-room; did notsee Arnold Harris,
itardicer, or Bishop; at the commencement of
the fracas he wts standing in comp&ny with
Col McKay and Gen Persifer F Smith, in
front of the < ffice; when the pistol was fired
there was a considerable moving backwards of
those standing in the passage as if they feared
an. thcr shot might be fired.
John Enbright examined for prosecution ?
He testified to being present at the time Her
bertcalled for his breakfast on the morning
o. tho affray, Rtordan brought a portion of it
and went for more; he came back and went
to second head-waiter to inquire Herbert's
name to go the office and get an order for the
breakfast; Herbert told Riordan to clear out
and called him a d-d Irish son of a bitch,
and then turned to deceased and said the same
words to him; witness was standing by the
pantry door at the time; Herbert got no and
went towards Tom Keating and struck him
with his fist on the back of the neck; Tom
Keating caught hold of a plate, and Herbert
picked up a chair and threw it; Tom Keatin"
threw the plate; they both jostled together;
Gardiner came in and threw a chair at Tom
Keating; Herbert, Tom Keating, and Gardi
ner jostled together some time; Pat Keating
came in; Herbert left Gardiner and Tom Keat
ing, and passed witness towards Pat Keating;
Herbert met Pat Keating near the pantry door;
Herbert pulled out his pistol, Pat Keating got
held ot the inutile, and Herbert had hold of the
stock; Tom Keating came around the tables
towards them; Gardiner came up and struck
Pat Keating with a chair; Tom Keatirg came
up and struck Pat Keating, by mistake, with a
chair, the French cook came in and rushed in
between them; Gardiner struck Pat Keating
with a chair; the cook jostled Pat Keating
away, witness was standing not mere than two
feet from the forties at the time of the shot
when Pat Keating lost hi? hold of the pistol
Herbert canght Tom Keating by his coat, shirt
and vest, and, putting his pistol to the breast
of Turn Keating, fired, the cook stood there
until Herbert left the room, and then followed
him out, htep by step; after the shot was fired
Tom Keating cried out that he was shot, put
his hands to his breast, and went over to the
ead side of the ro? m; after be took down his
hands the blood came out in a thick stream;
the Netherlands Minister came up to him and
a*ked if the man was dead. |The defence
here objected to witness repeatiug what the
Minister had said.] There was no gentleman
near Herbert at the time he fired; deceased
and Herbert both stocd upright; deceased was
a stouter man than witness, but was clumsy;
Tom Keating had nothirg in hit. hand at the
time the shot was fired, unless te had hold of
Heroert's coat.
Croi>s examined.?As Herbert passed wit
ness on his way towards Pat Keating, witness
UII back to allow him to pass; witness followed
taem until tLry came up to the p:.ntry door,
j the witness wm suojected to a very search
ng cross examination by Mr. Walker in re
gard to the position he occupied in the room I
w tness saw a pitcher raised in Pat Keating s
hand, but could not say how it was brokeu;
iJeroert drew the pistol at the time they met
did not sec any chair in Herbert's hand; Pat
Keating had i?.s arm around Herbert's neck
witness though: ^f interfering to separate
the ryt.es just as the pistol was fired ; does
think he testified at the j ?il that he di l
not cuange hu? potion during the affray
lte witness here lilustrated upon Mr Brad
ley the manner of the sheoting J Witn-sewas
near enough to have knocked the pistol up if
he had chosen. [The witness here appeared to
be considerably exhausted by the trying ex
"tarnation to which he was subjected, and
ssked f,r a glass of water ] Witness had not
agreed to pay any money for feeing counsel in
this case, Herbert was not in a bent posture
at -Le time oi the shooting; what Herbert got
would not have hurt a child four years old
air. Bradley here objected to a question bv
the prosecution as to tbe rule of the house in
" vt i?*? tbe hour as irrelevant.
Preston contended that it was the ret
,h? origin of the transaction
ine pnnt was argued with great power and
legal acumen by counsel on both sides, at the
end oi which the court decided that at a proper
?tage this evidence might be introduced.
At half-past 4 .n the afternoon, the court
adjourned until to-day.

nished Pat Keating with five dollars for the
purpose of feeing counsel since this trial
commenced; Pat Keating made no direct ap

two persona applied to him and received the
money; Pat Keating came up with them, but
witness does not know that Keating heard the
application; these persons did not belong to
his house. ?
. -^he Court announced hero that one of the
jur>rs (Mr. Owena) was ill, and recommended
that a recess be taken
After a recess of an hour and a quarter Dr.
Miller stated that Mr. Owens was utterly un
able to attend on the jury to day ; that he was
laboring under prostration and exhaustion
from the heat. He thought thero was a rea
sonable prospect that thia juror would be able
to attend to-morrow
Mr. Walker inquired what would be the
rule of the Court if the juror were unable to
attend to-morrow?
The Court, while reserving its decision until
the case should came up, stated that in case
of a juror a illness or death it would be neces
sary to discharge the others and begin anew
After some debate as to the hour of meet
ing next, the court was adjourned until hall
past nine, a. m., of to-morrow.
The Third District School (female de
partment) on Wednesday underwent its an
nual examination before quite a numerous
company of visiters. The sohool consists of
about sixty pupils, nearly all of whom we
should judge to have been present. The sub
jects in which they were exiinined were spel
ling, reading, dictation, montal arithmetic
geography, history, and algebra, and evidence
ik "r!,dec'dfd improvement was ahown.
About March last, the trustees permitted the
introduction of music into the school as a sub
ject of study, and as there waa no provision
for paying a teacher specially for that branch,
the pupils themselves unittd and raised a
?um, which, though small, as we presume,
induced Mr. Franklin Glenroy to give them
his very faithful attention as a music instruc
tor, and with such success as has seldom if
ever ueen atUmod by any school, juvenile <-r
adult, among as The exercises through which
Mr Ulenroy put hia scholars ycsterlay were
really difficult, and testa wero applied that
practised choristers might not have contemned
'or trivial Suffice it to say that the elements
or a sound musical education are already laid
in tfcis school, which we should be glad to see
carried forward to something like completion
MissMyrick, the teacher proper, also assists
in this interesting branch. Glees wore well
sung, and two echo songs with an excellence,
wbui we were quite unprepared to expect ?

Effects or Iwthmperajtce ?Last night a
young man waa arrested by Watchmen Horner
and Burch for stealing a watch from a gentle
man named Mcllenry He had been drink
lng, and was taken to the guard house where
he remained until thia morning. When the
guards went to the cells to see that the prison
ers were safe, this unfortunate person was
standing in the middle of his cell, trembling
in every limb, hands uplifted, and imploring
an imaginary demon to spare his life Ho
would run to the darkest corner of the cell and
hide hia face, but all to no purpose, his tor
mentor would again be before him, and again
the nrayers of the poor sufferer would be
heard Such scenes are more effective than
any temperanoe address.
Disobperlt Gatherisgh ?The auxiliary
guard and police officers, we are informed,
hive been instructed to disperse the gather
ings of old and young men upon the streets
during the day and night. It is a fact that
for months past crowds of persons have been
allowed to gather upon the streets, obstructing
the sidewalk*, and using language very offen
sive to ladies and others who are obliged to
hear it while pas.-ing No man desires to of
fend respectable ladies ; but in nearly every
instanoe indecent language ia used thought
The First District School, female de
partment, under the charge of Mba Middle
ton, underwent its examination on Friday
last before the majority of the members of the
B .ard. The distinguishing features in this
school are promptitude and thoroughness;
ard so well did the pupils approvo them
selves to the examiners and visitors that really
high enthusiasm was aroused. It must be
gratifying to teachers and pupils in no small
degree when thev thus wiu the meed of ap

W ASHIH8TOW. July 15th, 18WL
Geo. W. Phillips, Ksq ?Deer Bit : I re
2|iyour friendly communication bearing
ate the ll'h of Joly inst., interrogating me
with regard to my supposed connection with
the io-called " Know Nothing party." to which
I mo?t cheerfully and unequivocally reply.
You will recollect that about eighteen months
ago I bad a conversation with you on this sub
ject, when I then told you, as I did others,
that 1 was Dot a member of the party in ques
tion, that I had some months previous to that
time visited one of their councils, but that I
had never made up my mind or even thought
of leaving the Democratic party, to which, you
know, 1 had always belonged, and therefore I
declined having anything more to do with
them. Since then I have been repeatedly
urged to take the degrees to entitle me to
membership, but have always declined, giving
my reasons therefor. And I now say to you,
what I then said and more, that I never was,
nor can I ever be a member of the " Know
Nothing party," and do assure you that I
have no more sympathy for that party than
yourself, and in conclusion I give you the fur
ther assurance that I am resolved, as hereto
fore, to support n?ost heartily and zealously
the nominees of the late Democratic Conven
tion for President and Vice President. You
are liberty to u?e this es you please.
Respectmlly, your obedient servant.

Terrible and Disastrous Bailroad Collision.
Philadelphia. July 17?As an excursion
train of the children of 8t Michael's Church
was proceeding on th.' North Pennsylvania
railroad this morning, at about 7 o'clock, it
came iu collision with the down train. Six
cars were entirely demolished. thirty-nine
persons killed, and sixty-nine maimed or
wounded. Many of the womnded were con
veyed in carriages to Germantown. and sur
geons were dispatched to the scene of the dis
Tho excursion train contained eleTen hun
dred children, parents, and teachers. The
trains came in collision at a curve near Fort
Washington, with the down train ; the latter
was going very slowly. The excursion train
was going very rapidly, endeavoring to reach
the ttopping place. Both the locomotors
were crushed, and three cars of the excursion
train, together with those that were consumed
by fire. A number was crushed beneath the
ruins, so that extrication was impossible. The
scene was most heart-rending.
The names of the killed are as follows :
Rev. Daniel Sheridan, chorister of the church,
body not recovered ; Hugh Campbell. Barry
Kelly, Jameg Melntire, John Dogan. Edward
Mali, Jno. Rivers, James Hickey, Win Bar
nard( Henry Harris. Mary McLean, Catherine
McBurk, Ellen Clark, Sarah M?Gruean,
Catharine McGrugan, Kate McGirr, Jno Bra
dy, Margaret Meaney, John McQuire, James
Carney, and Henry Harrison, the engineer of
the up-train.
In addition to the above, seventeen bodies
were counted beneath the ruins of the cars,
mostly consumed; eleven men and women
and two children were consumed in one car.
The scene of the disaster is fourteen miles
from the city, in the neighborhood of two
curves, so that approaching trains cannot be
seen five hundred yards distant The track
is also single. When the locomotives came
together they rose on end, the fires cf each
nearly touching, and fell over across the road,
The tire being scattered about the wreck, the
first excursion car soon caught fire, and the
flames rapidly communicated to the two others
piled up upon it. The most extraordinary
efforts were mado to extricate the unfortunate
mutilated beings who were crushed amid the
wreck, rending the air with their dying groans
Many of these poor beings were still alive
when the flames reached them, and thus suf
fered as it were a double death Their groans
and shrieks for aid were awful and heartrerd
ing, altogether beyond the power of language
to describe.
Fortunately there were two hotels, a dwel
ling, and a blacksmith shop and small shed
within three hundred yards of the wreck, all
of which were used to shelter the dying and
wounded. A number of physicians from the
city and from Uerinantowu were early iu at
tendance, doing all in their power to aid the
Two fire engines from Chestnut Hill came
to the spot, and forced water through hose to
the wrcck fr->m a neighboring stream. After
working for several hours the fire was extin
guished, and the human remains were re
moved. Nineteen burned bodies were re
moved to tho blacksmith shop?three sup
posed to be females. Under another shed
were placed eight other bodies, so charred by
the flames as to defy recognition.
The body of Father Sheridan has been re
covered and brought to the city
An immense crowd was attracted to the
spot from the surrounding sections of country;
many friends of the excursionists walked from
the city, and others proceeded thither in every
description of vehicle, which were mado use

Virginia Old Line Whig Convention.
Richmond, July 17.?The Convention met
at ten this morning, and the Committee on
Resolutions not being ready to report, the
Coi;Vention was addressed by Messrs. Terrett
of Orange, ?Johnson of Richmond, Speed of
Lynchburg, Kilby of Nansemond. and Carter
of Loudoun, ail of whom expressed themselves
strongly in favor of Fillmore and Done!son,
and ?i1sj of a reorganisation of the Whig
The Convention resembled at J p m Mi.
Macfarland submitted a report from the Com
mittee on Resolutions. In doing so he said,
that the committee was unanimously of opin
ion that the preservation of the peace of the
Union, tho perpetuity our institutions, and of
the Union itself, depended on the influence
exerted by the Whig party hereafter.
The report consists of a preamble and nine
resolutions, the former setting forth the condi
tion of the country, and the nature of the
crisis that it is thought calls upou the Waig
party to exert its power for the safety of the
Tho resolutions declare in substance
First. That the Whigs of Virginia have had
no agenry in nominating any one for the Pres
idency, apd decline doin* so, and therefore
are free to select one among the candidates
already befote the public ; but in making their
selection, they do not merge themselves in that
party whose candidate they may adopt, but
will preserve distinctive principles.
Second. Denounces the Republican party,
and declares that the pretensions of their can
didate as unfit to be considered in a national
Third. That the Democratic party having
in nominating President Pierce declared that
all agitation on the subject of slavery in Con
gress and elsewhere should cease?and the
President having reiterated that pledge it was
not to be cxpected that his Administration
would have encouraged this agitation by giv
ing its countenance and patronage to agitators,
and by distuibing, for mere party purposes,
the oompromises that had long preserved the
peace of the country
Fourth. That the Democratic party hag by
its administration of the Government forfeited
the confidence of all conservative nun, be
cause of its violated pledges and flagrant
abuses in its domestic policy, and by the
blunders of its foreign relations
Fifth That no Whig can consistently sup
port the Democntlc candidate for the Pros
idency ; urging, in addition to other objections
to him, that he sustains squatter sovereignty,
the absolate power of Congress over slavery
in the Territories, and that he is responsible
for the doctrines of the Osteud manifesto.
Sixth Approves the compromise of I860,
and resists the repeal or modification of the
Kansas Nebraska act.
Seventh Considering Millard Fillmore the
most suitable man for the Presidency at the
present alarming crisis, the Convention re
commends him to the nation ; and while they
disclaim all intention of adopting the priaci
plea of another party, they invoke their
brethrefe to surrender their ex*epti'>n to the
quarter from wbencs the nomina'ion pro
ceed. ?iH saoport him
