An acknowledgement of the suc cess and fidelity of the Grant Ad ministration," unwittingly uttered bv one of its traclucers.

It was thought by many that the un fortunate man was insane when con victed, which has proven to be the fact since his incarceration. State Journal.. Iftth. Tho Sad Pate of vfi'am C. Fain ter Killed by the Cars Va). Repuhlican: It is witb feel ings of sorrow and sympathy that I endeavor to chronicle the particulars attending the untimely ami sudden death of William Painter,by the cars. Many of your readers were well ac quainted with deceased, although he never rcsbJed in our midst. He was the brother of John T. Fainter, who served with; such general satisfaction in the capacity of jailor and Deputy Shsriir under the late Col. Conover, and our fellow-citizen J. A. Sanders, Eeo,. lie was also the brother of Thomas, who has for several years been in the employ of our fellow townsman, M. S. Morris, in the man ufacture of plows and general black smith work. lie was also a member of the Savannah Lodge Xo. 11, I. O. O. F., and was buried by that frater nity, the Eclipse Lodge of St. Joseph ollicialing. The deceased was born Sept. 14, 1815, in Washington county, Ohio. He came to Missouri in 18G8, and was engaged as carpenter, on what was known at that time as the "Missouri Yalley Railroad," and had been con stantly in its employ up to the time of his death, at which time he was serving in the capacity of superiuten deal of a section of bridge hands. lie was a sober and industrious man, scrupulously hones', and faith ful, ever guarding the best interests of his employers, gentlemanly in his intercourse with, the world, always at his post of duty, he was loved and respected by all who knew him, and especially by theoflicers and employ ees of the road. Poor Painter! struck down in the vigor of manhood at a time when life was full of joy and happiness: at a time when associations were pleasant and friends sincere without a mo ments warning, at a time and place, where even his fond wife and loving child were not permitted to lisp the name of husband and father, ami close his eyelids in death: A home made desolate, a fair haired child an orphan, an all'ectionate wife a widow; her blooming hopes withered in the blossom, her once quiet and peaceful home shrouded in sorrow. And yet no one is to be blamed; it was an ac cident, at least, such would seem to b.3 the verdict from developments, made thus far. 'c are indebted to the St. Joseph Gazette of the 18th in-t., for the fol lowing fiiets, connected with his death on Wednesday the 17th inst: "Mr. Painter had been at work with his men upon one of the com pany's structures near- Amazonia Having completed tho duties of the dav. Paintej and three other men.got aboard their hand-ear and started for St. Joseph. They hud reached a point about two ami one-half miles above the Francis street depot, when they became aware of the fact t hat r. tram was Hearing them, from the same direction they had come. Think ing it was a freight, and consequently making a slow rate of speed, they hoped to be able to keep well out of its way, and with this purpose in view applied themselves vigorously to the brakes and put. the hand-car to its utmost speed. Their efforts how ever were fruitless and they perceiv ed shortly that the train was fast run ning them-down. Then they decided to stop the car and take it off the track. Having come to a stamt still the men attempted to lift the car from the rails. Capt. Stanbrough, of St. Joseph, was one of t he party, and he and Mr. Painter had hold of the car at opposite corners. They suc ceeded in raising the car and getting it half off the track, when Urn ap proaching train dashed madly down upon them, striking the hand-car v.'itli terrible force and knocking the men to right and left: none of them however received any injuries except Mr. Painter, and he was killed in stantly. It was supposed that his feet must ha-vc become caught be tween the wheels of the hand-car and the rail when the locomotive struck him. When they picked him up, a mangled bleeding corpse was all that was left to remind them of honest William Painter. There was an ugly gash just above and behind the felt ear, and both legs had been cut oil'be low the knees.5-" His remains were taken to his home Hi St. Joseph. His widowetL wife- sent for, who was on a short visit to friends near Savannah. Hut tllerc were others to do kind services and aU that should have been done was done. The officers of the road were especially attentive. Such is the sad history of P.illy Fainter. His remains were interred in Mount Mora Ceme tery, in St. Joseph, on the 19th i:i?iv attended by a large concourse of pec--ple. His associates wept over his sad fate, mingling their grief ani'i sympa thy with the lew relatives who were, present at his burial: and when the sad tidings shall be borne to brothers and sifters, and his early associates, -they too, will grieve over the untime ly and almost irreconcilable loss of brother and Iricud. May "lie who tempers the wind to the shorn Iamb" be their Comforter in this the tiki-k-hoiu of their aliliction. S. ItGtter'Proni Rosendalo. XbvENcvni, 20th, 1875. En.

Ycsterday the Cures of the lioinan Catholic churchesof this city announced the reception of a pastoral letter relative to the interment of the remains of Jos. Guibord in consecrated ground. The pastoral savs:. "We have truly declared, in virtue of tho Divine power that we exercise in the name of Pa-tor of pastors, that the place where this rebellious son of the church has been deposited is separa ted from the rest of the consecrated ground, to be no longer more than a profane place, or an ordinary piece of irround." The truth about the Mississippi clectio.? wi'.l soon be revealed. Sev eral of t lie defeated republican can didates for Congress intend to con tent the election, and claim to be able to show such an account of fraud and rascality a that1 even a Democratic Congress will be forced to oust the newly-elected Mississippians.
