Tlio ntory of the diiuter told in our dispatches yesterday, ill regard to the cxjO.iion in the St. Clair mine near Pottsville, P i?n ?ad enough to read, but notwithstanding more persona lost their livtM by it than by the accident at the Troedyrhiff mines in Wales, on the l'Jth ot 1x4 month, vet the latter wan Invented with a tragfts interest ntich as lias seldom been known either in thi^ country or iu Kurojit'. The accident occurred just ax (he day-shift colliers were quitting the work*. Some accidental breach of wall or vein burnt [the thin partition holding bark a vwt renervoir of water, which Btiil.icnljr bur*t forth an angry rush, till? i n tilt; lower ^aliericri ami chambers, and Jijrcinx tin* few remaining workmen into the lirat and second adit* of the mine*, neanwt the shafti. Ah Boon aa it w#h known that Borne 6f the operative" were miwing, a number of workmen descended the ?hnft, and entered tin- workings. It wan fotind that all tin1'* to within a few hundred yard* of tlu> bottom of the shaft wero tilled to feet deep, and but little 1jo|>o was entertained that any of the nursing inineiH cjuld be got out alive. White the explorers were consulting what wan to be done, they heard a faint knocking on the other side uf the coal, as they conjectured, about thirty feel from them. A Mcore of men joyfully threw oil' their jackets and went to work, cutting through the solid mnsu of rock. Through' nit the night, relays of men toiled on with desperate energy, cheered by the knocking* and pounds of labor from the imprisoned men. The task was laborions, ns it was performed in deep waters; but on the following morning a mandrill struck through and a hole was made into a part of the pit where five of the Io.Mi men were i-hut up. Immediately. a terrific explosion occurred, and one of the imprisoned men was hurled through the opening, where this re^uu-rs afterwards found liiui, dead. This w.ss caused by the escape of the compressed nir which had been imprisoned (i... :..nnn w?i.! ?...i back the water from that Jocalitv.: When the?c men were removed' it whs f tint! that Mill others were mining. Knockings were again heard, and the reccuers again ict to work to the relief of their remaining companions. The.4*1 men were bhut up in achamhcr of comprised air, leading out of a gallery, which the water had entirely tilled. Every means wan now lectured to, to reach them, even diving was attempted! but it wa.s not until Monday, the 10th, that the water in the gailery was sulli ciently reduced l?y pumping to render work practicable. From this time until Thursday, the rescuer* worked like he* roc, oj constant relays, me men carrying <m their work on their hands and knees through the passage, which wax three feet in diameter. One colliery owner, :t man worth ?50,000, went down ami worked with the other.'. Throughout all England, there wa* the most interne anxiety. On Thursday they reached near enough to communicate i:h the entombed men. "How many are j?'' wan asked. "Five," was the aner. "How have you lived?" "By tting candles," came the answer. At l.i-i, on Friday morning, the 20th, at 10 o'clock, it was known that the men would get out alive, and between and 3 P. M. they were reached and conveyed to the surface. It is i>aid that just tn the last man was brought to the free air of the upper world, and was being convejcd on a mriMcucr 10 mc no-pitai, one 01 meoiucera of the Company announced a message /rom the Queen. The menshge \ra? from "Bidulph, O.<borne, to Mr. Wale.", Mine Inspector," ami read as follows: "Thft Queen i? very anxiotia for the last accounts of the poor men in the mine. Are they naved? Pray telegraph." An ufn*cting|ijjci(lent in given in connection w^th the party tf imprisoned men, who were first rcicued. It is stated tlmtjnst More they heard the welcome tappings of those who nought for them, they hud taken a farewell of cach other, and had commenced the winging of the well-known Welsh hymn: In the ilm'pund mighty wat jt Tin n> l? none to tiolil my head Hut my ouly SivWr, J?aun, Who was thuiihtcral In in; stiad. lit*, i* friend, ill Jorilmi'* liter, Uoldiog ui> my Making hrml; Willi lli.i amllo I'll j;o r?j >lclli2 'J fcrou&li the regions ?1 the ueid. Just then the knocking* were heard 'And," eaid the old miner, the father of the one who was killed by the explosion, "Off went our jacket-, and my beloved son, who is r.o more, worked all night with the energy of u lion, lie |>n??ed ilio liver Jordan, of which ho hail been inging, and is to day on the holy hill oi the better land." The story fa a very re* mark able and touching one, showing both the perils ami the character of the Welsh miners. Now we know what to expect in the "good time" when woman ha* her right*. Miiu Van Uw, Postmaster at Richmond, Va., has shown us. It seems that she had a deputy hy the name of Jeflards, who, to her face, reported himself as only anxious for her re-appointment, and that he could not be himself an applicant, except nguinst certaiu male candidates. At '"""'Ston Miss Van Lew learned that 101 was not only an applicant, ' " *as Wng urged lot the portion on II"' ground that lie was the lorn fie Post being nimpjjr a figure-head.

He is at present endeavoi ing to perfect a system of connection and through freight and passenger rate with the IJaltimoreiS: Ohio road. Whe this i? accomplished be hopes to oflc pucIi inducements an will *ecurc the cai rying trade between this city and S Clairsville. The chief item of freight i present is coal. It is en lira a ted thr $2,500 will be saved to St. Clairsville i this one item by the opening of the roni The pro?pcct8 now are that ]50,000bu^fc e!s will be delivered in the course of year. Instead ot 0 cents per bushel, a heretofore, the price is now only 7 centi The gondulas of the road hold 1200 busli el??, ami weigh when loaded only 12 torn A standard track gondola carries 25 bushels and weighs 20 tonw. Thus it wil be seen that while only 20 per cent iuor of coal is battled the weight is ii created 75 per cent on the alandar track. Mr. Patterson is very hopeful nt only that his road will be a great conve: ier.ee and Hiving to the people of S Clairsvillo and vicinity, but also u rt munerative investment. The expense are light and easily controlled, and paying business reasonably well aasurei The present fare from Wheeling to S Clairsville by this route in 03 cents, th pamo ns the pike. It is hoped that ci long through ticket* can be sold at 00 t 55 cents. Thia will enible persons hex to take the cars at the Baltimore dep< and go speedily through to Nell's Sidiu] now tailed Quiucy, and there connei without delay with the narrow gauge f( St. Clairsville, reaching the latter plat in little over an hour from Wheeling. Adopting the C ash System. We notice by some bills printed in or Jnhilonnrlmpnt tlinl the ?nnrol?un?a ?? nt Glen Em ton have entered into a agreement to sell goods hereafter on "Htrictly'payayatem"?that is for "can or produce.'' They net forth in their ci cular that they "have experienced the ba inconvenience of the time system, and i order to sell cheap and give superior is ducementa to close bvyeru" they have coi eluded to try a new departure. The stated that their neighbor merchants ai adopting the cash and produce aystei and inasmuch as it holds out inducemen both to buyer and seller they too ha\ concluded to adopt it. Wo think that this is a wise step on tl part of the Glen Easton merchants. Tl: great evil of ouV day is tl^e oversellir of goods on credit. This is why th quarterly reports of the commercii agencies continue to hhow so many fai ures, especially of small dealers. Decline in Wool at (he Lonrio Nitleft. Advices from the great wool wale i London yesterday show a decline of 1 per cent in the price from former salei Thii decline in, wo presume, attributab] in good part to the breaking out of th war between Russia and Turkey, and t the apprehension that England and pe; haps other nations mar yet become in volved in it.
