Breckenridge Meeting. Last Friday was the day advertised for the holding of a Public Meeting of the supporters of Mr. Breckenridge . in Millersburg. . The weather was auspicious, but the crowd, ah, that ' didn't come. It makes us suspicious that the Breckenridgers are scarce in Holmes county. But a few days will tell the tale. In the evening tlie Court House was quite well filled with Republicans. Douglas men and Breckenridge men. a few. A. Mr. Sheward, a gentleman from New York, was introduced. He commenced by apologizing for his being there, but as he was here, and was expected to say something, he told his hearers how he should proceed. First, begin with the Republicans, touch lightly the Douglas men, and hasten on as fast as he could to the Americans. He com plimented Mr. Likcolh at the outset very highly, expressing his entire con6denee that if elected) be would administer the Government fairly, ac cording to the Constitution and Laws of the land. He believed him qualifiednd knew him a mor al and upright man. He then touched up the principles of the Republicans pretty freely, but with the exception of a few fibs which he told on our party, we had not much to complain of. Whenever Mr. 8. said anything hard of the Republicans, the Douglas men cheered, but when their horse came to be ridden, how did they act. Why, quit the room, and before fairly clear of the door, indulged in the grossest, vul gar abuse of the speaker. The rotten affair that they have embarked on, will not bear firing ' into. They cannot protect it with truthful, sound argument, but patch it all over with soph istry and falsehood. Every time, and they were aumerons, the Speaker fired a broadside into "Douglas and his men," or into that most trans parent 01 oil uumDugs, "Popular Sovereignty, the followers of the "Little Giant," would scam per out of the house. After they had cooled off they would return, and perhaps not be in the house a minute before the Speaker would touch them in a tender spot again, and out they would go again. They ran often but always returned, or at least most of them did. Some went out that got dry and forgot in the pres ence at their eld friend, that there, was speak ing going on anywhere, excepting the soliloquy they were having with their bottle. After it was all over and the Speaker had re tired to his quarters, then- these, Douglas men congregated in little squads.here and there, and Mr. Sherwood and the Breckenridge party gen erally, were very summarily disposed of. Ah, that was an entertainment not in the bills, and f Mr. S. but knew bow little he himself was in an intellectual sense, compared with these critics, bow utterly little and worthless his ar guments seemed to them, be would go home, buy a rope, and hang himself. Next Tuesday. November 6th, Republicans of Holmes yon will again be called upon to deposit your ballot in favor of Free Soil, Free Homes and Free Men. Do not forget it, Do not put it off until late in the day, for something might turn up that would render your going impossible. Go in the morn ing, vote early, and then lock around to see whether there is not some friend, some ac quaintance, who intends voting against you, against himself really, that could be induced to Tote right by a little talking to. Make upyour mind to stay about the polls all day. Bring up the sick, the aged and lazy- Guard the Ballot Box against illegal votes, and leave the rest to an all wise Providence. Meeting at Napoleon. A friend sends us a laughable, and no doubt correct account of the sayings and doings of the Democracy at Napoleon, on Sat urday last. We would publish it, but really friend, the game ain't worth the tallow. Get your slate, set down two ciphers, then subtract by the same, adding a big drunk, and you have an idea of the speak' ing and proceedings, on that occasion. Millersburg Wide-Awakes. Ton are requested to meet at B. Cohn's Cloth' ing Store, on Monday evening, next, at 6 o'clock, P. M. Important business is to be transacted By order of the Captain. jig"We hear of several new Groceries open ing is Millersburg.but know of no new Churches or School Houses building, or in contemplation, The fact is the few Churches now here are not attended by half our men, and there's little use of any more. Meetcho at Holm bs vill e . The meeting at Holmesville on Saturday last was not so large as we expected to see, but what it lacked in numbers it more than made up in grit. There was good speaking afternoon and evening, by Messrs. Harm and Goodhuc. ' gfTThe ultra Abolitionists of Pennsylvania, met at Rennet Square near Philadelphia, on the 25th and 56th inst. There was speaking done by white men, white women and negroes. The elements of which it was composed were too ex citing to Javor a harmonious time, and amidst hisses, groans, yelling, swearing and stamping, Ma meeting Drone up h w. . Kaow XoTHurs Enlisted foe Botolab. On Saturday night last, a Mr. Akseb, a Southern Kaow Nothiag from Missouri, made a speech ia Cleveland for Douglas. . The Plaindedet ad vised its friends to go and hear the spech of this Esow: Nothing, while its party lead era, when Mr. Shewaed, a Democrat, spoke in that city, took infinite pains to keep the Douglas men away.' And why? Mr. Shewaed was a life-long opponent of the prescriptive bonds of the Enow Nothing order when the dark lan tern was first lighted in Ohio, by voice and pen he opposed it. Years ago, when a base attack was made by a strolling circus company upon the unoffending Irish at Somerset, and the latter were arrested for the murder committed by the former, of all the bar in Perry county, Mr. Shewaed alone stood forward as the champion of ilia weak against the strong. Yet the countrymen of the men he thus defended, at the risk of his ova life, which was threatened, allowed themselves to be prevented from hearing him, because the Douglas leaders dare not trust their deluded fol lowers within hearing of his matchless elo quence, yet they were forced to go and learn lessons in politics, on Saturday night, from one whose lips were fresh from the prescriptive oaths of the midnight council of Know No things, against all who are of foreign birth. gWe have some additional European in telligence by the City of Washington. It was rumored that Capua had surrendered, but the rumor was unconfirmed. Garibaldi had called upon the King of Sardinia to go to Naples, and send him forthwith 14,000 troops. The Pied montcse had entered the Neapolitan territory, and a portion of the Sardinian troops took part in the battle of Yolturno. It is reported that the three great Powers protested against the Sardinians entering Naples. Mazziui had quit ted Naples at the request of the pro Dictator. The Pope remained at Rome. Gen. Latnori ciere had returned to France. The French oc cupied numerous places near Rome. Military movements on a vast scale are reported in Aus tria. Advices from Pekin to the 1st of July bad been received, but there was no news of importance. New Yobx. Both parties have been making figures as to the probable result of next Tues day's election in New York. The New York World, a neutral paper, in its calculations makes the difference between the lowest Lincoln, and highest Fusion majority, 33,550 in favor of the Republicans, some of the more enthusiastic Re publicans in that State, put Lincoln's majority at 100,000. We have no doubt but it will be large encugh to strike terror the hearts of the fusionists. fgA correspondent speaks in the highest terms of praise of the conduct of the Republi cans ia and about Napoleon on the occasion of ths recent Republican meeting there. Provis ion had been made beforehand to feed and care for all that came, gratuitously, and it was done. For the Republican. ' Mr. Caskev. Sir, I want to secure a certain space in yonr paper for a few months. As I am laboring for the public good, your terms 1 hope will be reasonable. I wish to reform Es till. Like Ephraim of old, he is joined to his idol, (lying) but I do not propose to let liitn alone, tor the disease is spreading among the woolv headed denocracy. They imbibe the principle by reading the Farmer. By reform ing the Editor the cause is removed, and the ef fect will cease, and the party become' convales cent.

To reform these I must reform Estill. He garbled my communication to please these. He lies when he tells them that he published it just as it was written. He has put itin aslinpe to please the rabble and gratify his own mean spirit. He thinks to make me look ridiculous. 1 make no professions of scholarship, and the communication was hurriedly written. I doubt not but there were errors in it. My Father em igrated to this State 46 years ago. He was poor. Forty-three years ago 1 had the honor of being born in Holmes county. I was carlv trained to hard labor. A few months of schooling in the winter when I could do nothing else, is the ex tent of my educational advantages. But be cause I was not well educated, is it any reason why I should not defend myself against the at tacks of a foul mouthed, unprincipled slanderer? For (he first time in my lite I have been attack ed through the press, and through it, I must de fend myself with what ability I possess. I tried to draw him into another field, where our chances would have been nearer equal. But unfortunately for roe he is lacking in courage as well as principle.: Though the contest through the press be aneoualed, I shall stick to him like a brother. He began the attack, let him lay on and see who cries, "Hold enough!" He knew as well as I that all that was contained in the manuscript sent him was not intended for pub lication, but like a paltroon and coward as he is, he did it I suppose to bring me into ridi cule.

The Tribune of Friday pays the follow intr graceful comnlinient to Messrs. Ciinse. Wade and Ford. The thanks promised will be the most acceptable possible: Ex-Gov. Chase of Ohio spoke last eve ning at Newark, N. J., and leaves this morning for home, in deference to impera tive engagements. He has been speaking daily in our Slate for the last fornight, mainly in the close Congressional districts, and has done yeoman service. He speaks very plainly, without parade or ornament; but no m; n living belter understands the great principles which underlie the canvass, or has a better faculty for making others understand them. U. S. Senator Wade and Lieut. Gov. Ford of Ohio have likewise been speaking in our State for some days, and are still. Mr. Wade is one of the most forcible and Mr. Ford one of the most entertaining speakers we ever heard. We propose to thank them by our majorities. Southern Fashions. They hare a very pleasant way of settling trifling per sonal quarrels down Sonth. On the 6th inst., Mr. Bienvenue and Er. Fournetof Opelousa, La., went out to settle a difficul ty with two revolvers and a bow;e knife each. They were stationed about twenty paces apart, with instructions at the word to fire and advance at will the fight to end with the death of one or both of the parties. At the second fire Fournet fell, but fired twice afterward, without effect. The murderers according to the code, the Courrier says, "behaved gallantly to the last."' '' ' - , More Barbarism of Slavery in Texas. The pro-slavery ruffians io Texas have added to their many outrages on Northern citizen : residing in that State, the hanging of Dr. Sh reev es and Mrs. Foster, formerly of Illinois. Dr. S. and Mr. Foster, removed with their families from Farcview, III., to Texas. The fact that they were Northern men and from a section where free white labor is respected, was enough to excite suspicion and put them under the ban of the uegro drivers, iney were warned to leave the State, and while on the way to Illinois, they were overtaken by their per secutors, and Dr. Shreeves and Mrs. (Fos ter summarily secured and hung to' a tree 1 Mr. Foster and the remainder of the two families escaped. The Canton (III.) Register of the 23d inst. states the sad facts, obtained from the friends of the families at Fairview. It savs Dr. Shreeves was not an abolitionist, and when he left Illinois he was a Douglas man. The fiendish spirit which ruies in Texas is illustrated by a Bell and Everett news paper in that State called the Sherman Patriot. It openly approves of the hang ing of Rev. -. Mr. Bewley,. the Methodist clergyman, by a proslavery mob, and wages a war on Methodist preachers general ly.- Il declares that they have no right to visit Texas, and congratulates its readers on the fact that these '.'Northern gospellers" can not now remain in lexas forty-eight hours in safety thanks to the vigilance of the chivalric Texas regulators. The Patriot exults that in its section "incendiary preach ers are hung up with as little ceremony as would be used on the occasion of the ex ecution of a sheep killing dog, and are left hanging until the crows devour them." It also thus fiendishly exults over the mur der of Rev. Mr. Bewley : Bewley was saved in Fayelteville, . Ar kansas, when arrested only by the inter position of the Sheriff of Washington county; there were eleven of these wretches in company with their families, but escap ed except .Bewley.' In the Timber Creek affair, Bishop Jay nes and the entire Conference left the county with the exception of Bewley, who boasted that he was the "Old Horse," and they could uot drive him away. Bishop Jnynes however, may rest assured that his "Old Horse is now duly haltered, and will remain so at the discretion of the buzzards. Such is the Barbarism of Slavery at this day in the btate of lexas! The Late Vote in the President's County.

Ohio Fusion a Failure and Fizzle. zle. The 22d inst was the day appointed for the meeting in Coiumbus of the Douglas Democratic State Central Committee, to gether with the Douglas Electors, for the purpose of considering tile subject ot tue formation of a new fusion electoral ticket. The State Journal savs "the day came but not Committee or the Electors. Of the twenty-one members ot the Commit tee but six were present, viz: Geo. W. Manvpennv,of Columbus; James M. Stout, of Monroe; A. L. Cass, of Coshocton; John O'Neil, of Muskingum; W. W.Arm strong, of Seneca, and the Chairman of the Committee, V m. Mount of Hamilton county. Five of the Douglas Electors, namely : W. JFlagg, of Cincinnati; G. F. Stay- man, of Delaware; J. tl.ioos of Preble, and Wm. Durbm of Eric; and, (we be lieve) Mr. Foster, of Franklin, were in at tendance, but whether to propose or op pose their removal from the ticket to make room for Bell and .breckenridge electors, we are not advised. Of course the Committee could take no action, because there was no Committee or at least no quorum, to take action. There was a great deal of talk, however, about the propriety of fusion, upon which .1 i -i i to- c mere was a aeciaeu uinerence oi opinion. More Defaulting Postmasters. A Washiugton dispatch reports the default of the Postmaster at Keokuk, Iowa, and also of another at either Alton or Quiny, Illi nois. It says: As for defaults of small Postmasters, they are as thick as leaves in Vallambrcsa Scores are being decapitated from inability to meet the drafts of the Post Office De partment. For the most part the default ers yielded to the temptation of coverting the public money to their private use du ring the long term, when the Post Office Department could not legally compensate mail contractors in the usual manner of giving them drafts upon the small Post Offices along mail routes; Tfre Postmas ter General has criven Ihera no Quarter. If the offender does not meet the draft, off goes his head. By the way, I learn that criminal proceedings bave been instituted against Mr. Marks, the defaulting Post master at New-Orleans. Lands pjr the Landless. In the year 1859 our very efficient Democratic ad ministration disposed of 13,550,292 acres of the public lands, reciving for the same $1,628,187 or about 12 cents per acre. Of this sura $1,310,758 went to pay the expenses of the land offices, or, in other words, into the pockets of democratic offi cials, leaving $317,429, or about two cents per acre, to give into the Treasury ! And yet the Democratic party refuses to give the poor settlers. 160 acres of those tanas, wnicn, arier aeaucuug expenses aua stealings, realize to the Treasury the poor pittance of three dollars and twenty cents Kenton Republican.' ! : ' 1 From the Providence (R. I.) Post. What is It?—A Simple Care. Within the wist two years, the public at tention has frequently been called to this disease, by paragraphs telling of its rava ges in different places, or of a remarkable mortality trom n in inuiviuuai laujinoo. It has prevailed extensively in California. In the autumn of 1858, it destroyed near ly two hundred children in Albany, N. Y.; in March, 1858.it produced great conster nation in Orange, Connecticut; it is quite prevalent at Western JNew lurs; aeatns are reported from it every week in Phila delphia, New York and Boston, and some cases have occured during the last year in all parts of New England; but it has been epidemic so as to attract the public atten tion in only a few places.. In this city there were a few cases in August, 1858, and five persons died with the disease during the remainder of that vear. In 1859, seventeen persons died of dip- theria, aud during the present year it has been present in the city nearly aUthe time, not, however, assuming an epidemic char acter. ! It has passed over all portions of France within the last thirtyfive years, and .through out England during the past six or eight years, causing a large mortality among chil dren. What is it ! We find the following description in one of the City Registrars reports: "Dintheria is a disease of childhood, the greater portion of its victims, like those of scarlatina, Deing oetween two ana twelve years of age. It commences with symp toms of a cold and with considerable fever. Simultaneously with these symptoms, and sometimes preceeding them, there is a de posit in spots of a whitish or grayish white membrane upon the tonsils and back part of the mouth. This membrane in creases wilh great rapidity ; the fever be comes of a typhoid character ; there is great constitutional depression; the breath be comes foetid, and some cases the glands about the neck become enlarged. When death takes place, it is caused in some cases by the extension of the false raem- brane to tne air passage, producing we et fects of croup; in olhcr cases it is caused by exhaustion and fever from the poison of the disease, in some epidemics a majori ty of the fatal cases will die apparently from the croup; in other epidemics, the larger portion will die from the constitution al symptoms. In the same edidemic in the city of Albany, in 1858, a few cases have occured in the spring and summer, but the greatest seventy of the disease was in Uc tober and November. It is entirely a distinct disease from scarlatina or croup, though it has some re lation to those diseases which at times cause doubt to the mind of superficial ob servers. The diagnostic by which it is known from other diseases of the throat, is the formation of a membrane which increases gradually until the patient is literally stran gled to death. It it sometimes accompa nied bv ulceration, and extreme prostra lion of the entire svstem, and at others by neither of theso symptoms yet it is equal ly fatal. To arrest the formation of this membrane would, therefore, seem equiva lent to curing the disease, and this in most instances may be done in the following manner. Iu the early stages of the complaint, which is always accompanied by a sore ness and swelling of the tboal, let the pa tient use a simple solution of salt and wa ter, every fifteen minutes. At the same time moisten a piece of flannel with a solu lion of the same kind, made as warm as the patient can bear it, and bind it around the throat, renewing in the meanwhile sprink linc fine salt between the flannel and the neck. Use inwardly some Ionic or stituu lant, either separately, or, if the prostra tion be ereal, use both together. The treatment, as may be seen, is extremely simple, and, if used in the earlier steges of tne disease wu eneci a complete cure. An Idiotic Millionaire. A. correspondent of a Boston paper, wri ling from New York, says: ; ."One who frequents Broadway or nny of our fashionable promenades, will notice tne daily walk of a gentleman who saunters leisurely along, followed quite closely by a man, apparently bent under 70 years, and stooping; so constantly as to seem almost crouching as he walks. He follows his leader like a shadow, and goes into all pos sible places with his attendant. The fee ble old man is John Jacob Astor, son of the famed Astor whose name is identified wilh the Astor Library. He was a bright and promising boy, and till seventeen years of age gave promise of much genius. Re ports vary as to the cause ot bis mental decline but the best accounts attribute it to the mental forcing system, and - to the immense study that occupied his early years. But true it is that he has been for years a hopeless imbecile, and ba3 been as much moro care than an infant, as a strong and athletic person can be. Ample pro- vision has always been made for all the comfort he is able to enjoy. An elegant mansion on i ourteenth street is his abode, It is fitted up with elegance and tasle. A yard comprising an entiro square, secures all the privacy that is needed. - Room for walking, riding on horseback and for recre ation is afforded. Horses, carriages, and servants, wait on his call. The gentlemen who has the care of Mr. Astor has long devoted himself solely to him. He has such command over him that he can guide aud control him at will, which no one else can do. Ample compensation is given to the attendant. He has t be house and all the servants, the equipage, and everything at his command. Beside a liberal provi sion made for him in Mr. Astor's will, he receives above the house and living the sum of $6,000 per annum. But he is not alone an hour. Sleeping, walking, at home, abroad, or riding, Mr. Astor is with him, makes one at bis table, is one of the invi ted guests at all places, and in all his movements follows him. The family of Mr. Astor are kind and tender to their re lation, visiting Lim daily, seeing that all his wants are tended to, and in the most scrupulous manner carry out the wishes of the father in regard to one wnom ne can ed in bis will "his unfortunate son. crTl,.M mAlonfbnl v mmnr Ihnt thfl jfifU XUCIQ luomuvuvtj - Abolition party of which Gerrit Smith is candidate for the Presidency, is about to split or has split.

The Baltimore Clipper, Bell-Everett Union paper, just before the opening of the bids for the government f 10,000,000 loan, tried the to help "bears" by the following croak: "Holders of government securities are hastening to convert thern into gold, to be secure from the crash they apprehend. Capitalists look askance at the new Gov nernment loan of ten millions, and a gen eral sense of insecurity of investments per vades nearly every community." Ihe Charleston Mercury s Washington correspondent a Breckenridge Disunion papei" a few days before the loan, joined its Bell-Everett co-laborers as follows: "On Monday the proposals for theoan of ten millions are to be opened, and we shall know how much below par the Union stock has fallen. The United states will uot be trusted wilh so much money, at any rale of interest, if it be the fact that the general government is about to be bro ken up. there is so much agitation in this city at present, and especially in the neighborhood of the treasury itself, that it will require some nerve to bid the loan on on any terms. The bids were opened, when lo and be hold the loan was snapped at by capital ists at a very satisfactory premium to gov ernment. The Philadelphia Press say a: "Mr. Biggs took $3,100,000 of the $10,- 000,000 government loan on Monday last Now, there is a striking and wholesome lesson taught by such an expression of con fidence in the perpituily of our institutions on the part of this great banker. He is a friend of Mr. Cobb, the Secretary of the Treasury, and we think the conhdantof the President of the United Slates, and more than all, the treasurer of the Breckenridge National Committee, which has its head quarters in Washington, and the leaders of which are in the habit of daily asserting that Lincoln's election will produce a dis solution of the Union. Back to his Old Quarters. The Sheriff of Coshocton county arrived in the city yesterday, bringing with him a notorious scamp by the name of Presley Buckmaster, who was sentenced to the Penitentiary for life, at the late term of the Common Pleas Court of that county If ever there was a man who deserved the halter, it is this fellow. In 1853, he com mitted a rape upon the person of his step daughter, a young girl in her teens for which he was tried, convicted and sen tenced to the Penitentiary for a term of six years. He blamed bis wife for being the means of sending him to prison, and during bis confinement, frequently uttered threats that if he lived to get out, that he would take her life. Towards the close of his confinement, he seemed to relent in his feelings towards her, and expressed him self satished with her conduct, cut it seems that bis object in this was to conceal his real feelings, for the purpose of getting bis victim securely in bis power. He was discharged at the expiration of his sen tence and went home, and we learn that his wife, believing that the lesson which his sad experience had taught him would make him a better man, received the in human wictch to her bosom. He had re mained home but a short 4ime, when he commenced drinking and the demon took possession of him again, and one day he took his rifle and deliberately, shot her down, ihe wound she received proved fatal, and atter lingering a day or two in torture, she expired. He was arrested, and an indictment found against him for murder in the first degree. He had his trial last week and the jury failed to agree and to save nis neck, the Prosecuting At torney permitted him to plead guilty of murder in the second degree, and he was sentenced to the Penitentiary for life. This is ths last of Buckmaster his sun has set forever, and within the gloomy walls ot the prison he will plod out the re mainder of bis miserable existence, and die the dealh of a felon, unpitied and un wept. Cause Intemperance. Columbus Journal. Arrest of Mansfield Swindler. A cattle drover named Seaton obtained a large sum of money from the Bank in Mansneld on notes discounted through fraudulent representation. He left for Canada, and was followed soon after by his wife. ' At Suspension Bridge, on the American side, he was overhauled by the omcers, and compelled to disgorge $3430, the amount claimed by the Bank. The Buffalo Republic says : "He is represented as a person hitherto considered as a very respectable man, and his wife a member of one of the first fami lies in Ohio.- ' It supposed that it was bis intention to get into Canada, and bis wife reprimanded him severely for not running when be was so near the line, and bad thus far suceeded in escaping the hands of the law. He had telegraphed to Rochester to his wife how to meet him in the Queen's dominions, and was writing another dis patch to the same effect when Marvel s quick detective eye marked him. He was left to go into Canada, or back home if he chose Ark You a Democrat. Well, let us tell you bit of a story. We will call no names. The other day, an old Democrat who has always stuck to his party, through good report and evil report said : "I've always been a Democrat, and am about tired of it. I don t believe the de mocratic party stands where it did ten years ago, and I m going to vote for Old Abe. "Vote for the negro party," said a Doug las Democrat. "Well," replied the other, "I voted for Pierce when there was no negro excite ment, all quiet, and after he got in all was negro I voted for Old Buck, and it has been negro, negro, NEGRO, all the time, and now 1 11 try a change. 1 11 give the Republicans a turn anyhow; it can t be any more nigger than it has been, and it may be a great deal less. ronton Reg. jCSrSufferors from Scroffula and Scrof- fulus affections, clean up !

A correspondent of the Mew York Trib une writing from Pike's Peak, says: , On Saturday evening a prominent aspi rant for Congress resented an affront from the Daily Herald, by spitting in the face of one of its editors. ! On Monday, having occasion to, call upon " the editor ' of the Eveninsr News, 1 found that gentleman waiting in his offiec with a Sharp's rifle and four revolvers on the table beside him. Converting his editorial room into an ar senal, proved a healthy precaution, for on the same evening a person named Alurpny, a notorious border ruffian during the Kan sas troubles approached the office with hostile intentions, having . taken umbrage at an adverlisement of a personal charac ter, and swore all sorts of vengeance upon the editor and the premises. ' Just ' before reaching the door, however, Murphy found himself the victim of misplaced confidence, for his entrance was suddenly checked by six shot guns and rifles leveled at his head from the windows . Ibis unexpected phe nomenon quite abated his thirst for satis faction, and elicited a handsome apology. Mr. Byers, the senior editor of the News, has published a Journal here for the last eighteen months, and within that period has been challenged, murderously assaul ted, and his office set on fire, and repeated threats made against his life, and last night his dwelling house was burned to the ground. " , ,. , ,:. .. ; : Fearful Railroad Disaster. serious disaster occurred to the - Fall River train, while on its way to Boston, on the 26th inst. A rail had got displaced at a culvert, throwing the cars oft the track, and turning one over on its side. The cab- sized car was drawn in this way nearly a quarter of a mile, before it could be stop ped. As the accident happened before daylight in the morning, the darkness ad ded to the terrors' of the passengers, of whom there were thirty in the cabsized car. Fortunately no one was killed. . A Mrs. Drinkwater, of Portland had her arm torn off at the elbow. It was picked up some fifteen rods from the place where the train stopped. An infant was jammed in the window so that portions of the car had to be cut away before it could be extrica ted. One man, whilst the car was being dragged along at a tearlul rate, smashed a window on the upper side, climbed out and escaped without material injury Lincoln in Maryland. " Ex-Governor Francis Thomas, whom the Democracy have often honored, lakes bold ground against the bo u thern fanatics, So far frem the election of Lincoln giv ing the South cause for disolulion, Gov Thomas, though a slaveholder, argues to the contrary. In a speech at Hagerslown, a few day since, he said : We have nothing to fear from the elec tion of Mr. Lincoln. All formely stood upon his platform. None everdoubted the right of Congress to legislate for the Ter ritories. He cared not what a man's ab stract opinions were : we had many Free Soilers in the Presidential chair. Jeettr son was a rank Free Soiler. Madisou and Monroe were both Free Soilers, He knew Mr. Fillmore well ; and a better Pres- iden we never had. Mr. Fillmore would responded "Yes" to every question put to Mr. Lincoln. Mr. Clay was an out and out Free Soiler. "So help me God, said Mr. Clay, "so help me God, I will never vole for the admission of slavery into any Territory were it does not exist. State Farm Boys. The boys from the Ohio State Farm, commanded by Capt. Irving .Linn, aud un der the supervision of Mr. Howe, the Act ing Commisioner, and the elder brothers, made a visit to Lancesler on the second day of the Fair. The boys were in band some uniform, and the larger class of them appeared under United Stales muskets. They moved in procession through the principal streets of the city ; and thence to the Fair Grounds, where they acquitted themselves handsomely, and reflected much credit upon the officers of the Reform Farm by their gentlemanly deportment and mili tary drill. . The smaller class in the mean while amusing themselves and the citizens, by varied athletic exercises and sports, in the circle. It is a matter of great gratifi cation to witness the finely improved con dition of the boys, both in appearance and deportment. Lan Gaz. Whisky Did It. Gordon who was recently executed at Denver City, for the murder of Ganlz, charges whiskey wilh the guilt of his crime. Whisky did it and the man is hung but the whisky 'seller goes unpunished : The last hours of the condemned, were passed in conversation wilh the clergyman, and in parting with his friends. His little brother called upon him only a short time before the execution. Their final interview was very affecting, and the guard and at tendants were even moved to tears. Gordon said to his brother: "I have no recollection of killing that man; it was not me, but whisky did it. I advise you never to drink whisky and by whisky 1 mean all liquors; keep good company, and keep your heart right. He then sat down and wrote with a trembling band a short note addressed to his brothers, advising them never lo drink whisky, for if they did it would ruin them as it had him ; and if ever templed to drink. before doing so, to visit his grave and think what it was that brought him there, lie then gave it to his brother, telling him to keep it as a sacred memento of him, and as a constant admonition, "read it often, and don't forget my dreadful fate Fast Transatlantic Steamers.

Their length is lo be 400 feet, beam 55 feet and depth only 17 to 18 feet. Ibere will be no solid bulwarks of the ordinary kind, but the decks will be as thick and solid as the bottom of Ihe ship, and the deck-houses instead of being light panel work will be constructed like the sides ot a ship, with bull's eye lights. These struc tures will also be sharp, like a ship s bow tn AiviAu th water. The deck and the structures upon it will thus form the npper web of a girder, and give great stiffness. The ships will have two beam engines like the Vanderbilt's with 100-inch cylinders bv 16 feet stroke. The paddlo wheels will be 50 ftet in diameter by 12 feet in backet. &"Three thousand dollars of Southern "chattels" passed along here a few days ago 00 the underground road, and are now safe in Queen Vic's Dominions.
