SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1825.
We have not, heretofore, taken the
trouble to pay aoy attention to the ego
tistical remarks of Every Evening and
its brilliant reporters that ita accounts
of the several meetings of the peaeh
growers held at this place were the only
full and correct ones, &c., and we
should not notice them now were it not
that wo consider such notice due to the
gentleman who has fnraiahed us from
week to. week with the report Of these
meetings. The Trasscbift has had
every week not only a full, bnt a per
fectly correct acoonnt of the proceeding«
of all these çonyentions. Thebe reporta
have 1 been furniahed to us hj <1- Thomas
Budd, Esq , the Secretary of every one
of the meetings. ' The mention of this
fact is aff that is necessary to prove the
fallacy of Every Evening'» assertions.

We have thus briefly considered the
growth of the railway system of the
republic ; the mode in which many of
them have been bnilt at the publia ex
lands bave been
pense ; how the public
squandered on them; how fictitious
capital has been created by issuing
''watered - ' stock for the purpose of con
aling the imposition of the road upon
the publié ; how that which is a mon
opoly^ itself bal been made a more
odious: monopoly by the consolidation
process, and how those corporations
have had committed .to them the right
to tax our /armera and the whole oom
mnnity without being responsible to
any one. Conoeding all the good
salts that have been brought about by
the aueoeeaful growth of our railways,
it must be admitted by the thinking
men of tbe country, that onr railroads
are aa much of a danger as a conveni
ence; anti that unless they are soon
subjected to some system of reg
by which they can be compelled

they owe
come not only sources of danger, bnt
the most annoying tyrannies that have
ever enrsed onr land. Nominally, the
railroads of the United States are acting
under the tow of the land ; but in re
ality, "they make themselves superior to
it ; and when occasion snht them they
do net hesitate to wiolate and defy it.
Their sole object is to wring money
from the farmers and others who are
obliged to ose the road ; and the publie,
for whose convenience the road ia «ap
posed to have. been built it denied the
simplest privileges. Scaroely » day
paae^thet some indivi4aal'a rights
not violated by theae railroad e
panies, and if tbe fbjnred party ia bold
enough to eirry tbe matter before the
conrts, he has a hard task before him
t0 obtain tha gimplest justice. He haa
to encounter the immense power of the
rooration backed up by ita wealth,
d the ohSnees are ten to one against
him ' He will either be beaten by the
money of the company, or he . will be
forced to drag his case along from court
to coart at rainons expense, until' per
haps, he abandon* it in despair.
A fair specimen of this tyranny was
recently., afforded in tbe » esse of Mr.<
John Golej**n, of Providence, Rhodt!
Island.^. This gentleman was shame
fully maltreated and thrown from a
train on the New York & New Haven
Railroad, thereby injuring him for life,
merely for demanding to ride over the
road with a ticket he had bought and
paid for some days previous, instead of
purchasing a new one. After having
fought his case for several years throngn
several courts, in every one of which
he obtained « verdict, the ease was set.
tied in the ooqrt of last resort by a ver
dict of nearly four thousand dollars in
Mr. Coletpans favor. Daring the pro,
grets of the cate through the charts,
one of the leading railroad officials ar
rogantly announced to Mr. Coleman tha

Two or three
the New Jersey
Hackensack Meadows, between Newark
and Jersey City. It was on a very
dark night. One of the passengers bad
lost his ticket? Tha conductor refused
to accept his explanation, but demanded
that he pay his fare a second time, or
leave the train. He refused te oornply
with these conditions, whereupon, he
was hnstled from the train on to the
platform, but no attempt was made to
stop the tfain, which at this moment
swept on to the open bridge which
crosses tbe Hackensack river. Another
push from the ruffians in charge of the
train sud by it the passenger was thrown
to thé floor of the bridge. The momen
tum imparted to him by the train mgde
it impossible for him to secure a-foot
hold upon the bridge He rolled help
lessly over the edge of the bridge and
fell with a splash into tbe river below
—whose dark waters closed over him,
and he was seep no more. No one was
to blame. No one was punished Tbe
murdered map had dared to refuse to
pay twice for his ride, and his life was
the forfeit to the railway oempany. In
anether instance a man who had em
barked on a train was ,oo mach intoxi
cated either to pay his fore or to reply
to the questions of the conductor.» The
train was stopped and he wa# thrust
from it a long way from aoy station»
In his helpless oonditioq be staggered
on to the track and fell helpless upon it
in a drunken stupor: An hoar later
an express train oeroe thundering along,
ran over' him a* be lay on the railway
and mSPgled hie, body almost beyond

not long ago. an old lady and her.
daughter, believing that tickèts are 1
good until used» took passage on a train
in the night time, apd securing births
in the aleapipg car, made themselves
comfortable until morning. About mid
night they were aroused by tbe conduc
tor, who bed discovered that their
tickets were two days old He pro
nounced the tickets worthless sod de
manded their fare. They declined to
i iay a second time ; yet, in spite of the
ateness of the honr and e heavy rain
that waa falling, the conductor com
pelled these two frail women to leave

dering along, strtlek a carriage in which
rode the family of the owner of that
dwelling returning home, and mangled
and wounded the occupants of the
vehicle; and, in-the twinkling of an
eye turned a happy household into one
of sorrow and pain. And yet. these
people, although they brought suit to
recover their damages, were turned
away empty and without redress.
The truth is, that railroad oompaniea
having learned to disregard individual
rights have come to disregard the value
of humau life. They kill and maim
and mangle with utter recklessness,
and insolently deny the right of the
victims to seek redress for their in
juries.
We find railroad companies careless
of the comfort of their passengers. A
traveller purchasing a ticket is promis
ed a seat in the cars Frequently the
cars are too few to accommodate the
passengers, and oftentimes many of
them are obliged to stand during an
entire journey. Should an injured per
son in such case make complaint he
would be laughed at. Many lines are
supplied with "Palace" cars and
"Drawing Room" care, for which paa
songera are required to pay an extra
fare. The roads using them, however,
do not leave it to the discretion of the
traveller whether he will occupy them.
They compel their use by providing aa
insufficient number of ordinary cars-;
or cars that are so filthy and uncom
fortable that persons gladly pay extra
to escape from them. Who is there
that has trsvelled, but can tell an elo
quant tale of loss aud injury in the mat
ter of baggage ? It is safe to say that
thousands of dollars are lost annually,
by the travelling public in the matter
of trunks and portmanteaus broken or
injured by the railroad employees,
But, travellers are not the only victims
of the company's disregard of private
rights. The farmers and others com- of
prising the vast army of shippers of
freight throughout the United States,
represent another class of sufferers ; and
each man of this class could tell his tale
of individual wrong and outrage.
But railroad companies are hnmble
and plausible enough until the charter of
is granted and the road boilt. Then
they do not hesitate to defy the people,
and the power of thé State. They have no
little fear ef the courte, and they un
derstand the art of managing and man
ipulating legislatures. Nay, even the
National Congress is regarded as being
subject to their influence

Mr. Editor : A few words from me,
through the medium of your paper, pro
bably will not be «misa. Onr tranquil
little town has been thrown into nndae
excitement by the appearance of scarlet
fever within the past tws or three weeks,
which has lad people to talk, and talk
they will ! and their ideas are as various
as the colors of the rainbow and as num
erous as thé stars of Heaven.
I Having been connected with these
twOicases, ef whieb I shall apeak,which
h|tve caused this tumultuous outcry, and
whieb he* been the source of different
notions advanced, new ideas springing
up, and which' hàs allowed them an op
portunity of passing their opinions and
rendering their diagnosis according to
their own views, based upon hearsay,
and not ^pon things seen. A word or
two then, in the way of elucidation,will
not, I think, be common-place. The
prevailing idea, as I undestrand, in con
nection with tbe oases, and that which
so engrosses the minds of the people, is
that these two boys died from being
green. Where this
can't tell, for I have
K isoned by Paria
:a originated, I
asked Mr. A. and he says Mrs. B. told
him ; ask Mrs. B. and she heard it
frofo Mr. C. and Mr. Somebody told
Mr. C. ; and to find ont who this Mr.
Somebody to. form« one of those un
searchable and impenetrable mysteries
of life that would make Zenocrates or
Aristofia swoon undèir the attempt. I
will briefly take up the two oases and
mention, each in turn, the symptoms
thalt actually did oceur, and then pace
my opinion upon tho caanslitiee in con
nection w|tthe rumored report.
Case 1. Harry 0., aged 6, previous
health good, was taken od June 80th
with vomiting, alight sore throat and
fever; tbe next day the throat symp
toms and fover had greatly increased,
the pulse was high but weak,—-very
characteristic of tbe complaint,—the
tongue coated whitish-brown, delirium
had set in and, at tbe expiration of the
day, a red rash made ita appearance on
the neck, which spread gradually over
the rest of the body. As the disease
advanced the eruption assumed a pur
plish haa, tbe delirinm ran high, the
anginöse or throat symptoms beca
greatly augmented, the whitiah-hrown
coating of the tdngqe grfldn»Hy cleared
off, leaving tha tongne dark-red, which
finally turned purple, then black ; the
glands of the neck became enormously
enlarged, the mupoqs membrane of the
throat highly inflamed, apd lastly gan
grene and sloughing took place, and
then the little sufferer entered into
another world. When we t«ke these
symptoms and earefolly oompare them
with onr pathology, we see at onoe, that
it is dearly a well-marked and well
defined cue of malignant aoarlet fever.
And to be more sure, we take into ac
count that there is at this time an epi
demic of the eame disease prevailing all
down this peninsula and in onr neigh
boring towm Tf this |s not | axes of
soarlet fever, then I say onr pathology
nothing but a anbtle mass of unrelia
ble material, that should be eolleoted
into bonfire heaps and burned as a
stigma upon the efforts and endeavors
of soientiffe pathologists, not only of
the present day but also of the days of
yore.

These are startling cases, I must con
fess, and I again express my sympathy
for the bereaved, but let us consider for
a moment whether or not theso little
boys came to their death by Paris
green. The first case is excluded en
tirely from the above notion, by the
full development of a clear case of scar
let fever.
In the second case, that little boy,
together with its brother and a number
of ether children, went into a neighbor's
potato patch on the Monday previous to
either of their sickuess, and it is not
known whether or uot that the child
was in there any more that week or up
to Friday. On Saturday it was not,
for on the morning of that day it was
sent to its aunt's, six or eight doors
A above, and it went from there dowu to
a small house below where it lived, dar
ing the day, and then back to its aunt's
again ; remained there during the night
of and returned to ita home on Sunday
morning; had been home but a short
time before it was taken siok. At the
above places the occupants never had
any Paris green about their premises,
and in faot •* Never seen any," so the
child did not get any thsre. If ha had
taken Paris green he mast have taken
it previous to Saturday. Now, allow
ing that he was in the patch as late aa
Friday, the elapse of time from then
until the symptoms set in, was too long
for such a deadly poison to remain in
the system without action, especially in
this weak, delicate little boy. Ör sup
poae the quantity was so »mail that it
took that length of time for it to act,
then certainly the symptoms would not
have been so severe at the beginning as
those that actually did occur. Does
Paris green produce an eruption upon
the skin ? Does it produce that pecu
liar character of tbe pulse—high but
weak ? Does it produce such intense
fever? Does it produce disooloration
of tbe neck alone, and other portions of
tha body exempt from its influence ?
There was no burning or uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach before tbe attack;
there was no disooloration or decorapo
sitiou of tbe stomach, indicative of Paris
green poisoning ; there was no ooldness
of the body except the hands and feet,
which lasted bnt a very short time and
towards tha close of tbe case ; there was
no clammy perspiration, and in fact
there was no marked symptoms of Paris
green poisoning except the vomiting and
convulsions ; and are they alone auffi
oient for ns to render a verdict of pois
ening without other concomitant symp
toms? Certainly not, for these symptoms
occur in many diseases—in inflammation
of the bowels, of the brain, of the thor
acic vicera, &c —and are frequent pre
monitory symptoms of tbe invasion of
the eruptive fevers. And so, without
other symptoms
correctly, any of tbe above diseases.
I ean answer a question that I have
been asked, "why the other meqtbera
of tbe family did not take the disease if
it was scarlet fover," by simply point
ing to numerous cases of the same kind,
where other members of the family did
not take the disease, not only in scarlet
fever but also in other highly contagious
diseases, as small-pox, measles, yellow
fever, &o., and will give as a. reason
that the system, by a good state of
health ia fortified against disease, and
is better able to ward it off, and espe
cially in those of strong, robust consti
tutions.
of
A.
, we oould call it, and
in
Dr.
A great deal has been said about
"black tongue fover," but that is not
any more a disease, than vomiting and
convulsions. It is merely a symptom,
for we have it in all bad eases of
typhoid, typhna, typbo-pneumonia, and
in a word, in all the asthenic or low
grades of fevers; and it is just as ab
surd to call a case with that oonditien
one thing as the other,without bringing
to. bear other conditions.
Now, let us for a moment glaUoe at
tbe.,way and manner by which tbe ma
lignant form of this disease, scarlet
fever, makes its attack, and willquofe
one or two eases from prominent authors.
Tannen says: "In many tnatanees, this
malignant form of scarlet fever -termi
nates fatally on the third or fourth day,
and sometimes even within twenty-four
hour» of the 1 first appearance of the
symptom* • It is always a disease of
extreme danger and only patients who
possess a vigorous constitution have any
chance of surviving it." Meigs says :
The symptoms which mark the in
vasion of grave (malignant) cases of
scarlet fever, though sufficiently alike
in all to show the unity of tbe disease,
differ very materially
of severity in different
Bet they are most violent and dangerous,
indeed appalling ip their character.
From the first they deolare the immi
nent danger of the attack. The onset
iq some is instantaneous." "A boy six
years old, whose sister had heon sick
for a week with a mild attack, went to
bed well.
morning, he was seized with vomiting
and purging, paleness and coolness» of
the skin, and great exhaustion. At
nipe o'plopk he was drowsy and dull,
the skit) was pale and cool, and the
pulse extremely rapid ; at 12 m. he was
comatose aqd had a convulsion. From
this time ho oontioued oomatose until
he died at 6 P M. of the same day,
after an Illness of fifteen hours."
Other oases I oonld quote but this is
snffioient to illustrate tbe ease. Then,
taking everything into consideration,
the manner of attack, the fact of his
brother lying low with the malignant
form, in a small house, sleeping in an
adjoining room with a door open be
tween them, and every breath he
breathed took in tho obnoxious poison
from his brother'« system, his weak
atitntion, and thereby his inability to
ward off disease, and the symptoms of
the oase whioh have been oarefully scru
tinized and compared, has settled in my
mind boyond all reasonable doubt the
second, as well as the first, died from
the effects of scarletina poison, or scarlet
fever.
