A correadondent at Olein, N. Y., tells
story.—
A remarkable story of Jurenile depravity
{S reported from Bell's Camp, and oil vil
lage on the line Oleao and Bradford Rail
road. A ten-year-old boy named Cbsrlle
Welch, living at Bell's Camp, bas for a
long time been in the habit of boarding
trains on that road and riding to and fro be
tween stations. Monday last the conductor
of train 28, seeing the boy In a dangerous
place on tbe train, stopped and put him off,
telling him to never get on sgaln unless he
paid his fare. "D—n," said the boy, 'I I'l
fix you for this." Friday afternoon, asl
train 28 was approteblng a steep embank
ment about two miles west of Bell's Camp,
the engineer saw an obstruction on the
Inner rail In the shape of a piece of Iron
raised and fastened by a scantling braced
against It and the outer rail. It was two
late to stop the train, but fortunately two
flat cars hod been placed In front of the en
gine to be pushed to Olean. 2 he flrat truck
bit tbe obstruction and was hurled down
the embankment, pulling the othtr with It.
The coupling between the rear flat car and
the locomotive broke, and no further dam
age was don?. A brakeman on the front
car went down the bank with it, and had a
miraculous escape from death. After the
smash-up the boy Charlie Welch was seen
to run from near the track towards home.
He was followed and arrested, but denied
all knowledge of tbe crime until he wa*
placed In a dark cell of the lock-up, when
be confessed that he had planned and exe
cuted the train-wrecking scheme because be
was mad at the conductor, and wanted to
get square" with him The boy will
doubt'esa be sent to the House of Refuge.

Although the society scandal to which
we alluded yesterday has been a prevalent
theme of goselp for some time, the ' pub
lication of the article created a great furore
of excitement through town, Since this
bae been made public others have comb to
light, and there can be no dlegnlilng the
fact,unwelcome as It Is, that such occurences
are only too frequent In our city.
Among the cases mentioned Is one which
came to light on Monday and was yester
day fully developed, and from Its nature
we are almost, forced to look ou It with dis
credit. The case la question Is that Of a
good looking mulatto girl who came to the
almshouse some two or three weeks ago
and received treatment during tbe termina
tion of the course of nature following her
Indiscretion. Somewhere between tbe 26th
of September and the first part of the
present month she gave birth to a child,
and hae since made affidavit to the effeet
that the father le a well-known and i re
spected local preacher of this city, wljose
name for the preient la withheld.
Trustees of Poor have brought suit to e
pel him to pay expenses and provide forjthe
child's support. Cbas. B. Lore, Esq.,>bas

Mr. Editor We understand that a
number of Democrats havfc requested Mr.
Chas. H. D. Bedford to allow his name to
be used before next Levy Court as a candi
date for the position of Collector, of Taxes
for the Southern Dlstrlet It Is to be hoped
'"hat Mr. Bedford will psrqftt the use of his
name, and that he will be elected. He Is
a well-known Democrat, having been
when It tried men's souls. HU flection
would be but a Just recognition of his
vices to the party, would be popular with
the young workers of the party, and, beiag
compositor by profession! It''would be
pleasing to the worklugineb generally, and,
withal, he is well fitted and competent to,
