The Union characterises the act of the op
position majority, yesterday, in expelling the
Hon. Mr. Allen from his seat, as simply an ef
fort to strengthen the chance of Fremont to
reach the Presidency. The same paper ex
plains that those who are supporting Fromont
under the notion that something may be made
for thamselves out of his ownership of the
Mariposa grant, in case of his election, are
throwing away their labors.
The Intelligencer says of the current Sena
torial propositions to amend the patent laws :
?? The subject of Patents for Useful Inven
tions is one of growing interest in this country,
and the inventive genius of our countrymen
has even made an impression in the Old World,
from which quarter high honors have been
awarded. Mr. James, of Rhode Island, in
troduced into the Senate, some time ago, from
the Committee on Patents, a bill which at
tracted a good deal of attention. It has not
Set fme up for Aral consideration, but Mr.
award, on Thursday, introduced a substi
tute for it, which deserves notice. It omits,
as we learn, the radical provisions of Mr
James's bill which relate to the extension of
patents, the review of decisions of the Com
missioner in granting patents by scire facias,
Ac , and confines itself to certain amendments
necessary to relieve the Patent Office of much
heavy labor, and expedite tne transaction of
the patent business therein. Inventors will
scan all these movements with a elose refer
ence to their own interests, and the public at
large have an interest in them scacely less
important. That the subjeot is one of great
delicaev is evinced by the earnest debates
which have occurred within a few days past
in regard to reaping machines."
Cantral America ?Our columns have been
so overwhelmed with domestic matters of late
as to have prevented us from bestowing upon
the last advices from Nicaragua, even a pass
ing notice. The substance of the news is,
that, on the 12th ultimo, Rivas and the na
tives of his cabinet with a single exception,
availed themselves of an opportun ty to es
cape from Walker's clutches Think of it?a
President running away from his own Oov
ernment, and setting up another in opposition
to it! That thing Rivas and his cabinet did
on the 12th ultimo. Whereupon Walker pro
claimed him a traitor ! Now these facta com
pletely bear out our persistent representations
that the Presidency of Rivas was little more
than a forced blind to disguise the fact that
Walker was the supreme dictator of Nicar
agua, by virtue of the rifles, revolvers and
bowie knives of his fillibustors. The humbug
of the connection of Rivas and a handful of
natives with Walker's fortunes has now come
to an end, and he stands countenanced and
supported there only by adventurers who flock
to him from this country. The solution of the
question, how much longer he oan maintain
his position??rests wholly with the previous
solution of the question, how many more thou
sands from the United States will rush to
Nicaragua to die of the black vomit and
cholaraT?and how many more fools there
are among us to advance money on Walker's
magnificent promises to pay, with whioh to
keep him supplied with clothing, arms and
ammunition? We presume that at least six
or seven thousand persons in all from the
United States, have joined his army. Perhaps
fifty have managed to return to this country,
nearly every man of them with ruined consti
tutions. fie has, perhaps, a thousand remain
ing, who are half starved and not half clothed,
as all his troops have been from the beginning
The rest have gone?the way of all flesh ; a
few comparatively dying by violence (on the
field of battle and in private squabbles among
themselves.) while the rest of his other dead
have fallen victims to the climate and diseases
of the country. Who wants to go next!
Mr. Burwell't Letter ?The reasons im
pelling Wm. M. Burwell. Esq., late the editor
of the Washington Organ, to withdraw from
the Know Nothing party, must fall with con
vincing force on the minds of all opposition
men in the South who have not made up their
minds to be used really to aid the election of
Fremont under the pretence of supporting
Fillmore. We quote his letter in question as
follows, vis :
" The first national action of the party en
couraged the hope that it would realise this
patriotic expectation It announced in June,
1865, that it would maintain the existing leg
islation upon the subject of slavery as a set
tlement of the question Under this declara
tion some thirty-three members of Congress
were elected by the American party in the
Southern States.
?? In February, 1856, this polioy was changed,
i be pledge to maintain existing legislation
was substituted by a creed in which not only
ihe subject, but the name of slavery is care
fttfly ignored. The guarantee for the admis
sion of new slave States, specifically given by
the deelaration of 1855, ia replaced by an ar
ticle which recognixes the right of legal citi
xens of a territory " to frame their own eon
stitution and laws, and to regulate thair own
ilamtstic ?.nH ?n?i i? ?
, Himrusrai uonstitutioff,"
which last phrase, under the interpretation
of the dominant majority in Congress, means
precisely the same thing. With this restric
tion, the 44 pledge" of admission into the Union
is granted to the territorial State whenever
it " shall have the requisite population for
one representative in Congress
"At the same time, and upon the same prin
ciples of neutm'ity, the American party nom
inated for its candidate a gentleman of integ
rity and patriotism, but did not require him to
aay whether he would, if elected, veto a bill re
storing the Missouri, restriction or repealing
the Kansas act. Tboae who have regarded
the pending ouestion too important to ne left
in doubt hare been informed that the nominee
is "platform enough," and that his past offi
cial aetJ afford a sufficient assurance of his
future. Taking bis signature of the Compro
mise of 1850, as the moet prominent of these
acts, we enoounter insurmountable difficulties
of construction. The friends of the Kansas act
contend that it is a legitimate deduction from
the compromise of 1850, but thousands who
advocated that compromise assert that the
Kansas act is a fl agrant violation of that meas
ure. If the inference that the K&aaai act re
sulted from the compromise is inevitable,
there could be no controversy upon the subject.
But there is a radioal difference upon this
subject, therefore the position of the American
nominee upon this question is doubtful, and
those who are disposed to support him may,
without impugning his integrity, ask his con
struction upon the consistency of the Kansas
act with the Compromise of 1850, and whether
it is his purpose to maintain or repeal it Un
til some suoh declaration shall be made, the
Americans at the South are wholly without
assurance against the continued agitation of a
dangerous question, or of having rights, deem
ed by them invaluable, surrendered by the act
of their own representatives.
??The 'J"1? ?pon whioh parties hare organ*
for the ensuing campaign is : 11 Shall any
more Slave States be admitted in the Union?'1
foremost and most formidable in this con
test stands the Black Republican party, a
dangerous compound of fanaticism and polit
cal oupidity. It is numerous and of powerful
resources ; it is led by ambitious and saga*
cious men ; it intends to employ the numbers
of the North to subjugate the South and gov
ern the country. Its material of warfare ooc
sist in impeaching the title of your property,
defaming your character and combining the
most despotio and lawless influences in a cru
sade against you. Its plan of warfare is to
cut off the supplies ana communications of
slavery, to invest its citadel and to send in a
flag inscribed, 41 Assault or unconditional
" The Democratic party has been, by force
of circumstances, placed 'n direct antagonism
to this partv. It stands not only pledged, but
oommitted beyond the power of recantation or
withdrawal, to maintain your rights as politi
cal equals in this confedracy.
" with my opinions, neutrality would be at
this important orisis little better than treason.
1 shall therefore vote for the Democratic can
didate at the ensuing Presidential election,
because that is the only party committed to
assert the rights of the South, and because
the opinions avowed by that party upon the
subject of slavery represent my own "
The Very Last?Bennett'i Herald, is suf
fering almost ths torments of the d?d, on ac
count of the shabby manner in which (it says)
the friends of Piercc, Douglas, and Cass are
treating James Buchanan?plotting, accord
ing to this devoted advocate of the election of
the Democratic nominee, to secure the elec
tion of John C. Breckinridge by the Senate to
the Presidency. The truth is, that gimlet-eye
of Bennett's sees about twice as far through a
millstone as an ordinary eye; whioh acoounts
for his discovery of this terrible plot against
the election of the candidate about whose tri
umph he has suddenly become so very solicit
ous. It happens, unfortunately for the theory
of this last quiuical mare's nest of his, that
the friends of Pierce, Dougias, and Cass do
not intend to let the Presidential election
question enter either House of Congress. If I
hs (Bennett) could for an hour peer with his
gimlet eye into the correspondence received at
this point by the friends of the three distin
guished gentlemen named above, his earnest
solicitude least Buchanan should be cheated
by his own household would vanish; for he
could not fail to discover that the Democratio
Presidential nominee stands no chance what
the situation in which, according
to Bennett, he is to be cheated. That is, he
can never be a candidate before the House,?
insomuch as the fourth day (Tuesday) of No
vember will consign him, directly, to the Pres
idency, with a majority of electoral votes
larger than the aggregate united electoral
votes received by both his competitors.
Mr Burlingame?We owe it to this gen
tleman to publish the following appendix,
which we find at the end the last speech (de
livered by Mr. Brooks, of South Carolina, be
cause, in commenting on that of Mr. Keitt,
we were under the erroneous idea that he had
refused to admit his personal responsibility
for personalities spoken in debate.
Appxsbix.?The imprudence of evil-dis
posed persons, who, by newspaper articles and
in private conversations, have done injustice
both to the Hon Mr. Burlingame and myself
renders it necessary that the subjoined memo
randa should be appended to my speech :
Mr. Burlingame, in a fair and manly way
admitted his responsibility for any language
used in his speech, and disclaiming any in
tention to reflect upon the personal character
of Mr Brooks or to impute to him in any re
spect a want of courage ; but, discriminating
between the man and the act to which he was
called upon to allude, he had characterized
tte latter only in such manner as his repre
sentative duty required him to do.
The above is a statement made by Mr. Bur
lingame in reference to the passage in his late
speech, which referred to Mr. Brooks. It is
in the hand writing of Mr. Speaker Banks
and was acknowledged by Mr. Burlingame in
our presence, and was satisfactory to us as
friends of Mr Brooks. WW Butch.

Cruel ?-The failure of the Uouso to install
Mr. Archer in the seat of Mr. Allen, of Illi
nois. It has spoiled a very pretty intrigue,
indeed ; one to secure the vote of Illinois for
Fremont in the remote contingenoy-that the
Presidential election may come to the House
Mr. Thurlow Weed, with his particular staff of
back bone doctors, were among us during the
last coitest over this subject matter, laboring
like good fellows to carry the Republican par
ty point. But, alas, Dr. Greeley was absent:
so their patient died yesterday. Back bone
liniment is, to-day, decidedly at a discount,
with sush physicians only to administer it.
Confirmed.?We are of impression that yes
terday afternoon the President sent to the
Senate the nominations of John Forsyth, of
Alabama, to be Minister to Mexico, and Wm.
Feme, of the same State, to be his Secretary
of Legation, and that they were confirmed
ere the Senate adjourned. If not, there can
be no doubt of their confirmation.
P. S. The Senate have not yet acted on
tnese nominations.

Territory, to be Agent fer the Shawnee and

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to
press, the bill for the relief of Obed Hussey
was discussed bj many Senators nntil, with
out taking the question on its passage, they
went into Executive session. At the termina
tion of their Executive session they trans
acted some business of no general interest,
and then they adjourned until Monday.
In the House, at the conclusion of the speooh
of Mr. Win. B. Aroher, the contestant in the
Illinois election case, Mr. Waiihburne, of Me.,
delivered a speech in favor of that gentle
man's claim.
The question was then put on the following
resolution, reported by Mr. W. from the Elec

elected and is not entitled to a seat In this

Whereas this House having declared that
neither James C. Allen nor William B. Arch

seventh Congressional district of Illinois :
Be it resolved, That in the judgment of this

that the election which was contested in this
House therefrom be referred back to the peo

of this resolution of this House
Resolved, That the Clerk of this House be
directed to pay to William B. Archer, of Illi

in that State, his mileage and per diem to

Nothing of public interest transpired in the
Hall ere the Star went to press
The Philadelphia papers of yesterday are
filled with the distressing accounts of the col
lision on the North Pennsylvania Railroad, by
which fifty-two lives were lost, and about?ene
hundred wounded, fnlly one third of whom
can scarcely survive. The Ledger says :
The excursion train proceeded at a rather
slow rate for some miles, owing to the great
weight to be drawn Then, fearful that he
would not reach the station in time for the
down train, Mr. Hopple ordered an increase
of speed, and as the train approached Dewey's
Lane, which is about 12J miles from the cLy,
it was running at quite a rapid rate. Still,
no accident was apprehended, as the rules of
the road required the down train to wait fir
teen minutes at the station, and if the up train
did not then appear, to send a man on horse
back, with a flag, ahead, to give notice that
the train was coming.
The regular train for the city, leftGwynned
at 6 o'clock and 14 minutes, the conductor
being Mr Vanstavoren. At eighteen minutes
after 6 o'clock the train reached Fort Wash
ington station. Finding that the excursion
train had not arrived Mr. Vanstavoren de
termined to proceed slowly. He was cautioned,
it is alleged, that he was ahead of time, but
maintained that he was not, and the train
went on. Thus, then, the excursion train was
approaching the curve of Dewey 's Lane at a
rapid rate, while the down train was coming
at an ordinary rate of speed?and neither con
ductor was anticipating any trouble?when
| there was a sudden shriek of the steam whistle
and a turning down of breaks?all too late.
The iron horse of the excursion train thun
dered around the curve and plunged into the
opposing train with an awful crash. A scene
ensued that appals all attempts at description.
The three foremost cars of the excursion
train, with their precious burden of human
life, were crushed .to pieces upon the locomo
tive and tender, and while a large number of
the occupants were instantly killed and man
gled in a horrible manner, the shrieks of the
wounded?and of those who, though unhurt,
cried out in agony of dread?sent a thrill of
terror to the hearts of all who heard them that
can never be forgotten. To add to the horrors
of the scene, the broken engine set fire to the
cars of the excursion train, and a number of
the passengers who were unable to get out,
were actually roasted alive !
Lines of men were formed, who speedily pro
cured buckets and axes, with which they en
deavored to entinguish the flames and rescue
the unfortunate passengers The fire raged
with fury, however, and utterly defied the ex
ertions of these persons, who were compelled
to witness the shocking spectacle of men, w?
men and children being burned to death,
without having it in their power to extend any
aid. At this time the aspect of the wreck of
Ihe cars, lit up with the devouring flatnes,
and rendered ghastly by the projection calcu
lated to sicken the sternest heart.
The down train suffered considerably by the
collision. It consisted of the locomotive Ara
mingo, a tender, a smoking and baggage car,
and a passenger car. Not more than twenty
passengers were aboard. The locomotive and
tender were broken by the shock, and the
cars considerably injured. The passengers
were either pitched out down the embank
ment-here about ten feet?or tumbled to
gether in a manner to receive severe injuries.
The engineer and firemen were badly hurt.
But all attention was directed to the shock
ing mass of wreck, death and misery among
the remains of the excursion train. As the
number of assistants increased, the flames
were more vigorously assailed, and large num
bers of wounded were extricated and placed
by the roadside. Persons were sent to the
nearest farm houses, and the country people
hastened, with all the appliances at hand, to
the scene of horror. Finally the flames of the
burning cars were extinguished, principally
through the aid of the Chestnut Hill Fire
Company, and then the persons at the scene
who were unhurt had ample opportunity to
take speedy measures for attending to the
wounded, and removing the remains found
among the ruins.
Now came a fresh series of horrors. Eleven
mtj, women and children had been burned to
death in one car. They were caught under
one of the sides and roasted, so that the re
ma'u6 when extricated presented a shocking
spectacle. The mangled remains of four men
and women and a child were dug from beneath
the engine and tender. The remains of an
infant were found under the ruins of the en
gine, in the ash-pan, The remains of six
other bodies were raked out of the ashes and
ranged tide by side on the grass.
The North American says :
At the scene of the disaster, the excitement
among the surviving passengers, and those
who came to the ground, was at one time di
rected against Mr. Wm Vanstavoren, the con
ductor of the down train, whose violation of
the rules of the road was alleged to have
caused the appallinycalamity. That gentle
man had borne the reputation of being a care
ful, intelligent and reliable man, and many
were at a loss to explain his eonduot. Soon
after the aocident he came to the city, and
immediately proceeded to bis residence, at
Tenth and Buttonwood streets. There, it is
said, he appeared to be laboring under a
gloomy excitement, either proceeding from
mental trouble, or injuries received by the
collision. He went out and returned about
dinner time, when he retired to bed. About
5 o'clock in the afternoon be was found dead.
The story that he had committed suicide by
taking arsenic was spread throughout the oity,
furnishing material for the gossips, who have
never a suthoient mouthful when a calamity
of this kind oocurs. Others said that grief
and remorse killed bim. Bat the brother of
Mr. Vanstavoren called at our office to inform
as that the unfortunate conductor had died
from internal injuries received by the shock
of the collision.
The Times says:
Various stories and opinions hare been given
in regard to (he prevention of the eatastro
phe. Bat a statement in reference to the con
struction of the road will enable our readere
to form a better idea in regard to the same
than either the itoriea or speculation famished.
For the distance of about a mile in the vi
cinity of the disaster, the road oonsists prin
cipally of two curves which form the letter S ;
ao that the engineer of a train coming up be
leW the station, and passing the same without
stopping, would not be able to diaoera the
down train before coming directly upon it
And in thia oaae, as the oars did not atop at
Camp Hill, but were proceeding at the usual
rate to Fort Washington, neither the engineer
or eonduotor discovered the regular train
from ttwynedd until too late to aroid the ca*
The Ledger says : This dreadfal affair, we
? resume, will be thoroughly investigated
he blame ia thrown by many upon the con
ductor of the excursion train, who, it is aaid,
disobeyed the standing instructions of the
company by not stopping the train and wait
ing for the down train, when he found that he
was behind time A fearful amount of re
sponsibility rests upon somebody's shoulders
On the other hand, it is said that the engineer
of the down train was ahead of time, and
that this was the cause of the collision.
A gentleman who saw the accident, and
was within fifty yards of the spot where the
collision occurred, states that the oars on both
trains were running about thirty miles an
hour. On coming in sight of each other, both
whistled for "down brakes," but the dista'nce
was too short to prevent a collision On com
ing together, botn engines struck with a tre
mendous force, reared up and fell over on
their sides, the bottoms of both engines coming
together. The first two passenger cars per
formed the aame evolutions aa the engines,
the third car being piled on the first two,
making a eomplete wreck of all, the force of
the collision scattering the burning cinders
among the cars and setting them on fire.
Two freight cars, belonging to the down train,
containing milk, were also burnt?making
