Herolam er Kallrwad Conductor,
A conductor on a freight and passen.
o-er train on the Syracuse and fling-
hamnton railroad perlormea a oaring
feat a few days since, by which a fearful
rntaatronhe was averted. A correspond
entat Chenango Forks, N. V., furnishes
the fnllnwinir narticulars:
"The train, consistine of twenty-four
stock cars and one passenger car, which
was filled with passengers, was between
this station and Whitney's Point, going
at a tolerable hiuh rate of speed, when
th engineer. William Uardy. discov
ered a rail gntirely out of the track some
di.anre ahead. He immediately re
versed his locomotive, but upon second
thought, determined to attempt running
the train over tne place wnere iue rui
w.b mia.inov and at once turned on I
full head of steam. The engineer and
fireman, however, did not remain to see
what anccpaa ihe exrjeriment would meet
with, but jumped off the engine, leaving
it without any one to control u.
The train hounded over the discon
net-tad track at a fearful rate Of speed
every car rctaininir its position on the
track. 1 be denirarous f pot was passed
but, with no one upon the locomotive to
control its speed, a most terrible fate
awaited the train eomawhere. The state
of affairs became known to the nassen
g?rs, and a panic was at once raised. At
Whitney s 1 oint there was every proba
bility that tne tract: would not be
readiness for the train, as at the rate it
waa ffoinz it would reach there torn
minutes before its time. In this extrem
ity the conductor, John Vrooman, proi?-
ed hiins'lt a hero, lie was in a passeu-
..r car ai the rear of the train, but clam
bering up the ladder of the freight car
next in advance, he ran the whole length
nf the runaway train ol the tops of in
cars and was soon in the locomotive
cab, set red the throttle aid in the aezt

ANECDOTES OF JUDUES.
Peculiarities- Wblsna Jokea.
A writer in London Society tolls tome
good stories of English Judges, among
them the following: , .
.JUrwit Aldcnon, learned, gentle nnd
good, could make pans and bad much
drollery. A juryman once said that he
was deaf in one ear. "Well, then,
said Alderson, " You may leave the box,
for it is necessary that jurymep should
hear both sides." . . 1
After Lord Mansfield had retired he
delighted to talk over every important
case of the day with a certain barrister,
who became a great Judge, l.oru .Mans
field was yerr kind to the bar. When
his court sat very late on one occasion,
he addressed the counsel: " Gentlemen,
as you have lost your dinners you had
better come and dine with me." Judges
are very good in asking young barristers
of their acquaintance to dinner, but such
bonhommie as Liora Mansueiu s it wouiu
be hard to find now. ' v'
There ins a little stir one day in Lin-.
coin's Inn, when a Vice-Chancellor re
quested a gentleman who had strolled
into the. court to come up ana iu&b a
seat upon the bench. At least, he told
the registrar to bear the message, who
was diBgusted at what he considered an
unollicial proceeding., ine stranger so
desorvedly honored was Macaulay.
The judges an tell odd stories oi go
ing circuits. I he. lunotionanes, ana
sometimes even the prisoners are much
disgusted if, instead of a Westminister
Judge, they have to deal with some coun
sel whose name has been included in the
Commission. A prisoner for murder
was greatly annoyed because he had to
be tried by a " jonrneyman judge." A
sheriff once told a judge that they had
been " often jobbed otT with sargeants,
instead of judges in those parts, and
was he renlly fcona fide judge .'" Having
had hia mind satisfied on this point, the
sheriff gracefully took his place by the
judge on the back seat, but was politely
ntormea by the juage mat enqueue r
mreu that oe stioum su uppusiw. vote

over an ancient city. . I es, my lord,
was the answer, " it always was an, an
cient city. We expect tuat it was tue
same gentleman who expressed a hope
that Mrs. Judgo and all the little Judges
were well. " ' ' .

Some absurd stones have been told ot
Judges thinking aloud. I he lollowing

cellor: A barrister, whom he naa not

There was one Judce who had a trick
of checking witnesses when they got on
too fast for his notes by Buying: " Stay,
.tavl " He Was called the old stay-

temper and discretion. A Judge who
aummoninE UD a case was Kreuuv

A curious story is told illustrating the
leiral nreciBion ot a ereat Judge, lie
atked a magistrate at a circuit dinner
whether he would take iome venison
The o-ontleman answered: "Thank you,
mv lord. 1 am eoine to lane some ooueu
chicken. ,, Lord -Tenterden retorted
" That. sir. is no answer to my question
I asked you if you will take somo yeni
son, and I will thank you to answer yes
or no, without further prevariction."
The story was originally told in the
Quarterly Review, but it is challenged
by Lord Campbell.
With some Judires the habit of advo
cacy has grown so inveterate that they
have been quite unable to lay it asiae.
If ever tbef have seriously tried they
hove not succeeded -in the? attempt.
The case has even been known of
Jiudge on the bench thundering like tin
advocate at Nisi Prius. A judge once
..Id that he had only lost two verdicts
innn he had been rained to the bench.
The most consnicuous example oi an
ntellectual failure in fairness wns Sir
Inl.n I.nnrh He do iirhted to callup
throueh his cases. lie was so last that
tniro coach was named anee mm
"Vice-Chancellor." Almost as Boon as
a ease was onvned he deuaded aiiainst a
plaintiff or defendant, aud acver thor
n.mhlv heard it throueh. It was won-
dared what he would find to do after he
had cleared hit list off. ," Do! why he
will hear the other side," was the acute
answer. This was indeed an egregious
example if the facts stated of him are
true, and they are stated by Lord Kings
down, and such a Judge himself deserv
ed the peusion ol a criminal.
Cases are on record in wnica jungoB
have confessed themselves mistaken.
One Judge, thinking that he had paused
an injustice to be done which it was be
yond his power to rectify, left the ln-
jurea person a larn" ou,i w, uij
his will. It is said that the case of Lord
Cochrane, afterward Karl of Drunddn
ald, almost broke the heart and hastened
the resignation and death of Lord El
lenborough. That great man and most
upright magistrate had conceived a po
litical prejudice against Lord Cochrane,
and .nmmed un violently against him.
tie eltrward saw good reason to oeneve
that ne nad been mistaken iu nia lauia,
and had been too harsh in his sentence
A witness was asked in court one day
what Baron had said to him
when he had made an application at
Chambers. Whereupon the witness gave
a grunt and a roar, as the nearest way
of reproducing the learned Judges re
mark. '
A Sight Weawvlns.
A Kanlea eorresnondent says:
1 spent the night with some friends on
the top ef eeuvius, freexing on one
.i,L and hoilinsr on the other. We kept
enrselvts awake by the amusement of
dodging the falling stones. About once
in ten minutes the old mountains gave
a ahivwr then a burst like forty thous
.nl muffled cannon, if ever there was
such a thing. At each burst, a cloud of
Mark amoke. in the shape of an inverted
hay stack, and thirteen times the size of
the r.n'.t House, was driven into the air,
followed by a mass of livid Dame that
liirhted the country for leaiues around.

into the crater, but many, varying in
size from a pigeon s egg to a. tobacco
hogshead, laud outtide, and yon must
dodge; generally eay enough, as they
are of a white heat, and thow as plain
as' a rocket star. They tumble down
the steep cone, hissing ,and steaming in
the snow the big ones breaking into
fragments, and flying like a bursting
shell. Now ia the time ten minutes
interval. We rush np to the yery
edge of the abyss and look down;
for further particulars see " Dante s In
ferno; " but you spoil yoor boots; I did.
You singe your muttache; I did. And
you wish you wore safely out ot it;
I did. You turn- away sneezing, as
if you had aocidently ignited a box of
locofocos nndcr your nose; for a mo
ment all is dark; then the long, twink
ling row of gas lamps in the streets of
Naples seem to spring out of the ground
under your feet, though miles away,
then you see the lights in the little towns
above the base ot tne mountain., in an
save one, and that oee the largest Pom
peiiwith its great old temple, magnifi
cent theaters, close-built streets, and
vast arena, is dark; the grim skeletons
lying in their ashen beds alone Keep
their vigil there; their eyeleBS sockets
need no light. No sight that ever I
witnessed can equal a clear sunrise from
Vesuvius. No one can imagine its
grandeur, but you must try to, for I dare
not nttmnt a descrintion. As we stood
gazing down on the roofless houses of
Pompeu, the sun lighting its gay-coior-ed
wall Torre del Greco, with its earth-
quake-Bhaken walls I said: 1 m glad
of it." Says one of the party, ' It
awful shabby: don't think it pays."
Thtit vnnno Winn was from Henry coun
ty, Indiaua: With a pretty general de
struction of boots and clothing, ana uie
aforesaid toss of one of the handsomest
mustaches in Naples by your humble
servant, we got down saieiy. not so
with another party who ascended from
the Kola side. One of them had an arm
broken by a falling stone; another a leg,
in getting down.
DKUNE 0B CRAZY.
Extraordinary Antlra of Plalllda
Heron ou iue Hi. g.ouia uoaru.,
From the St. Louis Times, 21st.
Considerable interest was manifested
lust nveninir' in theatrical circles npon
the occasion ot the appearance oi iuiss
Matilda Heron npon the dramatic stage
for the first time in many years. It has
been nearly twenty years since she
achieved her great triumph here, in the
characters of Camilla and Medea,
laying the foundation of her subsequent
wide tame.
The cuitain did not rise until long al
ter the advertised time, the actress not
manifesting any particular anxiety about
the impatience of her audience, and be
having strangely in other respects, n nen
it was finally rung up, Heron, in re
sponse to the warm greetingshe received,
smiled strangely ana continuously, cu
ring the first act there was an entire ab
sence of anything like connected or in-
to nrih e actine. bhe continually mm-
bled her long gray hair flung loosely
over her shoulders, stroked her brow and
threw herself into ridiculous attitudes.
Her voice was husky and frequently
broke into a shrill scream while her
laughter had none of its old pleasant
rinir hut sounded like the meaningless
cachinnations of a lunatic. Some of
the audience believing that she was in
toxicated, were rather boistcrou up to
the. termination of the act. when she ad.
vnnced to the foot-liithts and Baid:
" You things who behave so much like
blackguards, get out and leave the la
dies and gentlemen here. If you have'
no hehavior why then behave your
selves." During the next act there was
no nercentible improvement, excert in
the behaving of the audience, who by
this time begad to Buspect the cause of
her strauite conduct. When the curtain
fell Miss Heron was called out and re
sponding spoke as follows: "Ladies
iinrl irentlemen: I am triad to come once
more to large-hearted and benevolent
St. Louis. 1 come here not as I did
manyj years ago, full of youth, hope
and ambition, but rather as a pauper
to strive to earn a little to support
mv irrav hairs, and to recover, it possp
ble, what I have been robbed of. For
my new start in life I am indebted to
Ben DeBar, who generously gave me the
use of his theater, and in other ways
I,., nut mn on my lefs aeain. I am
now past forty years of age, and have
tn veara left to achieve my lost laurel.
I have genius and talent, that I know
full well. My heart is in my soui; mj
snul is with God: I don't care a fig for
the world, and I'm just as happy as a
big sun flower. ibis over she danced
nil tti .infra wildly wavim? her arras,
It is thought by some that her intel
lect is permanently impaired, while
others attribute her stranire demeanor to
an overtaxing. of her mind by study, and
the excitement attendant upon her re
appearance in St. Louisi She persists
in her ability to Dlay during the week,
and will probably appear .again this
evening. ,
An Kxainple) for Woald-be Sal

The Courier-Journal relates the fol-
lowinir sutrrrestive incident:
There is a gentleman of the middle
aire, who mieht be summoned as a wit

who assure! us that there is never any
ense in self-destruction. He declares
that when he was a very young man he
waa madlv in love. His love was re
turned, and there was every prospect of
hatinv result. Ut a sudden, nowever.
an event came to pass which put mar
riage out of the question. So what did

whereupon our hero produced his two
horse pistols, loaueu uown to tne muzzie
with buck-shot.

solemnity in his voice, and a terrible
earnestness in his eye. " Susan," says
V,.
Susan looked np, frightened to behold
the murderous weapons gleaming in tb

A corresDondent in Brazil gives a
shivering description of the kind of pet
they have in that country. - lie says it is
quite a convenience to have anacondas
in the cellars to destroy rats ana mice.
People do not teneralfy have the largest

mer past, the contagion wo more fatal
to them than to the familie in which
they were kept.
