Orv Vrnk H Hamilton received the dis
patch summoning him to Washington at
his house. No 43 West Thirty-second
Street, ew York. It took him only
ten minutes to prepare for the journey.
He left the house at about two o'clock.
with the remark that he did not know
when the next train would start, but
that he would get a carnage and go to
the ferry, so that he would be ready to
take it. The dispatch, which was brief,
he took with him. He hastened in a
carriage to the Desbrosses Street ferry,
where he learned that the first train for
Washington was over the Pennsylvania
Railroad at S :40 o'clock. It would ar
rive in Washington at 10.: 20 p. m. Some
time was spent in inquiries as to the de
parture oi trains on other roacu. Then
he crossed the ferry, and entered the
Jersey City passenger waiting-ropra.
where he was reoogmsea while he was
making u'duiries at the palace-car win
dow. .Superintendent Jackson, who was
in his office in another part or me depot,
was sent for. , A very brief time sufficed
to make him aware of the situation. He
hurried away from Dr. Hamilton, and
seven minutes later the latter was rush
ing out of the depot on a special train.
It was 3 :10 p. m. when the depot mas
ter and the train dispatcher received no
tice to be spry, i-ngine aio, one of the
best of the ordinary engines, with a five
foot driving wheel, was hitched to a new
Eastlake coach, a."t at 8:20 it was run
out of the depot.
. -The freight trains were all got out of
the way one after another on sidetracks
in time to allow the special to roar past
them, without slacking speed, but two
passenger trains delayed the Doctor fif
teeA. minutes. He wrived -at Philadel
phia at 6 o'clock, a distance of ninety
miles in one hundred minutes'. The en
gineer was A. Vandegrif t, and the con
ductor H. W: Headier. At Philadelphia
a stop oi due a iew minutes was maaat
in which to change engines and allow
Dr. Agnew to get on the cars. From
Philadelphia to Wilmington, with a stop
at Chester and other places, the run was
made in twenty-seven minutes, the dis
tance being twenty-six miles. A dispatch
had been sent to Wilmington for a
brakeman, and a man "wrned Hum
phreys was detailed to "maSSa train."
At, 6:27. the special v came dashing
through the city at the rate of, at least,
eighteen miles an hour, and the intrepid
brakeman stood nearthe track. He made
a desperate grab for the rear platform,
and at the risk of his life succeeded in
gaining a hand and foothold. The car
steps-were protected by a wire railing.and
he was carried a considerable distance
clinging on to this before the conductor
came back and unlocked the gate. The
train arrived at Washington at 7 :50 p.
tu: an average rua from New York of
almost fifty miles- ao hour,' and from
Philadelphia of over fifty-five miles an
hour. This is the fastest railroad time,
for the distance .and considering the
stops, on record. Bollimort Gazette, s.

It may not, perhaps, be known that
a man wearing dark clothes is more lia
ble to infection from contagious disease
than he who . wears light-coiorea gar

from diseased or decaying bodies are
much more readily absorbed by dark
than by light fabrics. .. This is easy of
proof. - Expose a light and dark coat to

smells stronger than the other of tobacco

The following telegram was sent from
Sofia to the Emperor of Russia one day
after the arrest of the Liberal leaders :
." Your Majesty t Graciously forgive
as for addressing yon by telegram. The
gravity of the moment compels us to do
so. The time is short; the knife is at
our throats. If yon do not -withhold it
we are lost. Do not allow them to de
prive us of the liberty conferred on us
by your august parent,' the Csar Eman
cipator, we are already nan slaves.
Yesterday the four best patriots of our
country were deprived of their liberty
in an illegal manner. Yoa fought per
sonally for us. Could yoa bear to
ns again slaves r uur best men have
been libeled. We refute this libel.
Your Majesty, these words are our own.
JNobody is telling us what to say we
are prompiea Dy our own nearts. lie
lieve us, our minds are not obscured.
For five hundred years we were slaves.
Your august parent wrested our liberty

that he conferred noon ns we will prize

mand that our patriots be liberated,
Give but one order that your subject
should not aid in trampling on our na

A Chicken Bans Away with a Lady's
Last Tuesday a curious accident hap
pened to Mrs. 8. K. Smith at the Sisters',
or St. Vincent's I arm, near .Laclede.
She was at the barn with her little child
when by some means a garden hoe
which had been lately sharpened and
was hanging on a peg in the wall, be
came disioaged ana was about to fall
on the child ; Mrs. Smith, seeing the
danger, warded off the hoe, which struck
her on the forefinger of the right hand,
completely severing it at the first joint.
The dismembered portion, fallin? to the
ground, was at once picked up by a
chicken, and both chicken and finger
end were soon out of sight. The finger

v " Bescued from Death.
The following statement of William J.
Coughllne, of Somrville, Ma s., is so
remarkable that we beg to ask for it the
attension of our readers. ' He says : "In
the fall of 1876 I was taken with a vio
lent bleeding of the lungs followed by a
severe cough. I soon began to lose my
appetite and fleab. I was so weak at
one time that I could not leave my bed.
in the summer or 1877 I was admitted
to the City Hospital. While there the
doctors said I bad a hole In my left lung
as big as a half dollar. I expended
a hundred dollars in doctors and medi
cines. I was so far gone at one times
report went around that I was dead, : 1
gave up hope, but a friend told me. of
Dr. Wm. Hall's Balsam for the Lungs.
I laughed at my friends, thinking that
my case was incurable, bnt I got a bot
tle to satisfy them, when to my sur
pslse and gratification, I commenced to
feel better. My hope, once dead, began
to revive, and to-day I feel better spirit
ed thau I have the past three years.
"I write this hoping you will publish
it, so that every one afflicted with Di
seased Lungs will be induced to take
Dr. Wm. Ball's Balsam for the Lungs,
and be convinced that Consumption can
be Cured, I have taken two bottles
and can positively say that it has done
more good than ail the other medicines
I hsve taken since my sickness.- My
cough has almost entirely disappeared
and I shall soon be able to go to work.
