It says it that "tho interest of Richmond la the matter is far greater than that of Petersburg, and there is no such alarm felt here." Wo are gratified to see the Dis patch declare itself so emphatically in favor of tho most liberal and enlarged policy with regard to railway improve mauls, as it does in this closing paragraph: I We say to our friend of the Index, let as now act upon broad and liberal principles, give every facility to trade and travel, and we shall be rewarded by a success that never can be achieved byjthe narrow, restrict!ve,ctinatri(:ted, and twisting policy which hopes to build up trado by force. The Lynchburg Republican says T. W. I Robertson, whoso death in England has just been announced, was the author of that sterling English comedy, "The School for Scandal," and that he was the greatest dramatist England has produced since Sberidan. The Republican ought to be better posted. Robertson, we know, wrote a scandalous sort of play, called "School," which was very good in its way, as were I his "Caste," "Society," "War," "Ours,'' tr Love, " " Shadow Tree Shaft, '' th," and last of all, "Death," which the moat dramatic of all his works. vas certainly a moat successful ami a talented play-writer. All of hia ts are characterized by naturalness of tents and situations, brisk and lively in, and elegant and sparkling dialogue, are singularly free from anything scn tual or lnolu-dramatic. Hence their ilarity with audiences of culture and 1 taste-, rather than with tho crowd that fills the galleries of inferior places of amusement.

TWO TRAINS OF CABS A\l> A BBIDOI ON FIRR—THK Bill DDK FALLS WITH A TRAIN INTO TIIK RIVER— PAUSKNOKR'.! BCRSEO AND DROWNED. A terrible disaster occurred Monday night on tho Hudson River railroad, at New Hamburg, New York. An oil train was bound south, and when passing New Hamburg an axle of an oil car broke, and dragged along the ground till it reached the draw-bridge, when, striking tho tim bers, it throw tbe car off its track, and upon tho up track, in tho face of tho second Pacific express. An attempt was tnado to stop the express, but there was not time enough, and it struck an oil car, and the fragments of the oil car were scattered in every direction, and at once ignited, en veloping the entire express train in flames. The expreas train waß composed of a locomotive, one baggage car, one express j car, and five or six sleeping cars. Tho locomotive was at onco hurled Into the river, and the engineer was kill' d, and the baggago and express cars pilrd on tup of the engine. At thosnmo time tho Chicago sleeping car was one sheet of flume, nnd Kigh desperate attempts were nitnle to uo the passengers, it is s aid uot one got j alive. Two of the other sleeping cars next to it were also wrapped in Haines, but the passengers in them all got out safely, and then the bridge took fire. In le-s than ten minutes afterwards tbe whole iiro fell, carrying with it the Chicago id burying it and its inraatos tint of mder water and among the ruins of j 3omotive and express cars.

Skating-Rink. — The most enlivening sight wo ever saw in Richmond was at the skating rink Saturday night. Wo did not expect to see so large a crowd, and great was our surprise when, on entering, we saw so many of our most fashioaable ladies and gen tlemen skating. The ladies tell us it is the most fashionable place to go to in Richmond. The fancy dress carnival on skates, which Is to come ofl February Utby is to be a grand affair. All who skate that night will ba required to appear in some kind of costume. We have heard of a great many who are pre paring for it, and from some of the characters wo hear of, it will be worth going one hundred miles to see. We expect to see not less than 1,500 people there that night; and we would remark here that the building is so well put up under the flooring that 5,000 people might be packed in it and the floor would not give Supreme Oottrt of Appeals.— Present, to | day, Judges Moncure, Christian, Anderson I Wm. A. Stuart vs. tbe James river and Kanawha company. Petition for writ of error aad tnpencdeat. The same allowed, and bond in $200 given. Fant vs. Downman nnd Fant vs. Shackel ford—appeal allowed from decree rendered by the Circuit Court of Fauquier county. M. M. Morris vs. James C. Childress and others—appeal allowed from a decision of the Circuit Court of Albemarle county. I Hustings Oourl—Judge Ouigon Presid ing.—Tbe following persons were tried and convicted lo day for misdemeanor: John Fick, 90 days in jail. O-orge Washington, 4 months in jail and Agnes Lewis, 90 days in jail. Israel Johnron, felony, 3 years in State's pri son. The L'fe and Character of David — This is the subject of a lecture to bo delivered to night, at Leigh-Street Baptist church, by tbe pastor, tho Rev. Mr. Garlick. For sometime past this talented divine has devoted each Wednesday niaht; in |tbe week to lectures on the various characters mentioned in Ihe Bible, which have proven exceedingly interest ing and instructive, and we have no doubt that tho subject to night will prove equally so. Mr. Garlick is thoroughly posted in biblical history, nnd his discourses show research and learning of a high order. The large crowds who attend at Leigh-Street church fully attest the great interest with which Mr. G. is re garded. Laic Pictorials. —Messrs. Johnston & Selden, 918 Main street, will accept our lh*nks for late weeklies and pictorials, just re ceived from New York, oomprisir g Bonner's Ledger, tbe Weekly, tho Chimney Corner, and the New York Varieties. They are all unu sually interesting—especially the last, which haa a handsome illustration of "The Hog io the Skating Kink," and a thrilling account of the sensation tha porker created. It was de» cidedly a "big thing on ice." Commissioner's Court. —Tho following cases were disposed of by United States Com" missioner Jenkins this morning: H. D. Hicks, charged with carrying on the business of a tobacco manufacturer without having paid tho proper United Stales internal revenue tax, was sent on for trial. A. Davis, charged with violation of the in ternal revenue law, sent on for trial. The. World's Almanac —Messrs. John ston & Selden havo sent us a copy of thia ex« cellent compendium of past, present, and tu turo events. It is handsomely gotten up, and is very complete iv its compilation of the oc currences of the past year—in this respect surpassing, we think, even the Tribune't alma nac. Mr. Cadis D. Luck, who ia most, pleas antly remembered as one of Ihe proprietors of tha late Spotswood hotel, has gone to New York, where he will probably engage in busi ness as manager of the Grand Central hotel.. The whole community will wish him tho most ample success in bis new field of labor. Electien of Officers —The R-publicans of Madison ward reorganized their club last evening by the election of an tntire new set of officers. The condition of the club is exceed ingly favorable, and under the operation or tho reorgaiization will undoubtedly greatly in crease the strength of Ike party in thia ward. The youug folks of skating proclivities are just now full of thoughts of the carnival n costume at the rink, which is to come off on ■ '■' lit .'lit"l St. Valentino's day. From all we hear, tho rink will be well populated that night. The New State's Prison —Tho ttvocom niltees of tho General Assembly, appointed or that purpose, will meet in the Senate hamber at 4 o'clock this evening, to consider roposals for tho salo of Buitable sites for a ew State's prison. The Post'ffice Manual, lately issued rom the postollice in this city, can bo obtained of any of the mail carriers, and will bu found a very useful book of reference. The canine brigade are preparing for an active summer campaign, having now nets and other appliances prepared for tho capture of tho objects of their regard.
