"Of what does the surface of tho earth

The quiet breakfast of a family in Low

a few mornings ago by the laundress, who
bolted into the room with the exclamation.
"An sure, missis, I thought I'd come and

mornin', as me boy is sick with the small
pox, and is as black as me old man's hat.,'
She was allowed to depart without further

Frigidful Runaway. —A horse attached
to a small wagon, in which were seated
tree persons, all colored, became frightened
this morning, on lower Broad street, in the
neighborhood of the new school-house, and
ran away down the hill at a furious rate.
The terrific rattle of the wagon behind
him and tlie clashing of the gearing against
his heels, increased his fright, and he
plunged headlong down the street at the
imminent peril of those who happened to
be in the street, as well as to those who
were in the wagon.
Near the comer of Twentieth, Lavina
White, a colored lady, attempted to jump
out of the wagon, and in doing so, she was
thrown to the ground with great violence,
and received severe, though probably not
fatal injuries. She was picked Up in an in
sensible condition, and taken to a house
near by, and properly attended to.
The horse- dashed ahead, the colored
driver anil another colored woman main
aining their "positions in the wagon. Be
wceti Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets,
ie driver succeeded in running the horse
ver the curbing and sidewalk against a
Kh board fence, thus ending the wild race,
c wagon was pretty badly wrecked, and
ie horse was considerably cut and bruised.

Summer. —The summer season, accord
ing to the almanacs, (of which we now
have an abundant supply,) is about to close.
Whether cool weather will immediately
follow, remains to be seen. The season
has been a remarkably warm one, aver
aging more real hot days, perhaps, than
any other for ten years past. Upon the
whole, however, our people arc emerging
from the lieated season in tolerably fair
condition. The public health has been
good. The earth is yielding fair crops,
and tho coming fall promises oven greater
business prosperity than our city and State
have experienced for many years.
A Texan on His Travels. —A horned-frog
of the Texas variety, jumped spryly from
a mail bag received at the Louisville post
ollice, a few days ago. Mr. Tuley, the as
sistant postmaster, was for a time at a loss
to know what to do with his toadship.
Being aline, he could not well send him to
the dead letter office, but finally sent him
as a contribution to tlie New Albany So
ciety of Natural History. We do not
know that the clerks in the Richmond post
office have ever received such mail matter
as this, but if they do, the precedent set by
Mr. Tuley may be of service.
Oily Scluiols. —For the 3,15(i scholars,
which the hooks at the central school-build
ing show was the average attendance for
the last scholastic term, then; were seventy
four teachers, of whom sixty-three were
white anil eleven colored. Males —white,
one; males—colored, three ; females—col
ored, eight. There will be nearly a hun
dred teachers for the next term.

Nuisances. —Randolph Square is com
plained of by many citizens in its vicinity,
as a nuisance. It is full of thistle weeds,
and the bloom from them fill the houses of
the neighborhood, unless the doors and
windows are kept closed, which is too much
to expect this hot weather. Noxious weeds
should not be allowed to grow in vacant
lots in the middle of any city, and are not
allowed in many cities.
This square is the depository, also, of all
the oll'al and tilth of the neighborhood. It
should be looked after, anil if the owner
will not improve it, and thus abate the
nuisances complained of, let the city rcii
it, enclose it, ami sow it down iv oats or
clover to feed the city mules.
The tilthy ditch running through tt*
vacant lot on Main street, between First
anil Second, although attention has bee
called to it by the Journal, and it ha
been "viewed" by the police, has not bee
attended to. If wo are to preserve th
public health, such "breeders" should in
be allowed to remain a day within ou
borders.
When Sunday school "lets out" at the
Grace-Street Baptist church, the attendants
thoughtlessly crowd tho sidewalks so that
people coming down town to other churches
at that time are compelled to push through
tlie crowd by main force, or else leave the
pavement ami take the street for il.

lesterday morning at 8 o'clock we took
the excursion train from Richmond to Pe
tersburg. This train was well filled with
all colors, and some of them looked as if a
kw hours from the hot bricks would be of
great advantage to their health. On reach
ing the Cockade city, the large crowd was
soon dispersed, some going one way and
some another, some to the house of God,
and some to the homes of their friends.
We took a carriage at hotel de Jarratt, and
went six miles into the rural district of
Chesterfield, to the house of our friend, Mr.
Yates, a gentleman of high standing.
We were gratified to see the corn looking
so line. We were told that it would uot
bring more than twenty-five cents a bushel.
We arrived in Petersburg in the afternoon
in time to take the train for home, which
we reached safe. Nothing transpired dur

a blush or a sigh of anguish.

Charleston, alluding to the progress of the
yellow fever, says the declaration of the
medical society is considered by leading
physicians, including the health officer, as
:m extreme statement. Many of the mum
on which it was based were doubtful. The
a'filth officer does not consider that the
acts in the case justify him in withholding
a clean bill of health from the New York
teamer, which suils to-day.

liostiui, August 27.—Particulars of the
accident on the Kaslern railroad, at Revere
last night, arc appalling. The Bangor ex
press ran into the Beverly accommodation
train at full speed, with such force that the
engine and tender reached the centre of the
last ear, which was demolished. This car
was crowded with passengers, sitting and
standing. 'ITie wood work instantly took
lire, and the scene which followed was ter
rible. The boiler of the engine bursted,
and the victims were enveloped in a cloud
of steam and deluged with hot water.
LATEIt.
The llames have been extinguished, but
few of the passengers in the cars who were
not instantly killed by the collision, es
caped the fatal effects of the steam. Other
ears in the accommodation train took fire
from the upsetting of the kerosene lamps,
and but few of the passengers got out in
Eighteen men and three women were
killed outright, and between forty and fifty
otliers terribly injured.
At the time of the collision tho accom
modation train had its red signal lights be
hind, and the rod signal was hoisted at the
mast-head of the signal post, for the express
to hold up, which it did at Evcritt, but sub
sequently proceeded and was under full
headway when near Revere Station, the
engineer evidently not being aware of the
proximity of the Beverly train until per
haps within sixty rods of it. He then
whistled "down'brakes," but not soon
enough to avoid the calamity. Some of the
passengers in the rear part of the accom
modation train heard the whistle, but too
On came the express train at great ve
locity, and the engine struck the rearmost
car full in the centre, and forced its way in
n-li-seopc manner. The car was crowded
with people, every seat being occupied, and
many standing in the aisle. In among
tliiM' the locomotive rushed, quick as a
tl.-tsh, just as the Beverly train bad started,
mangling and killing in the most frightful
manner. Subsequently the boiler exploded,
and shattered he lumps of the first cars.
