A railroad accident occurred near Narrowsbur tweut3'-six miles west of Port Jervis, at about four o'clock this morning.by which one man was burned to death, and four teen cars, loaded with coal oil, tobacco and cotton, were entirely consumed. Jas. Bourke, a brakeman, was seen in the midst of the flames, but it was im possible to approach near enough to render the' victim any aid, and he was in a short time completely roasted. The fire is supposed to have originated from the locomotive.

The Times to day comments on the rapid increase of importations of wheat irom the United States. A most interesting question, it says, is the etent to which it can be kept up 111 competition with Russia and Central Europe when railways over that section are fully developed. The great questions for us to consider are reduc tion in freights and other charges and the enlargement of communications with the Mississippi Valley. London, November 2. A dispatch from Alexandria states : M. Pauline sur veyed the Suez canal and finds water 20 feet deep in the shallowest part I he Captain of the yacht Aigle has informed the Empress that he cannot make a pas- sajre through tbe canal, his boat drawing more water. The Empress insists that new soundings be made and if tbe Aigle be not able to go through a light vessel be procured, us she is determined to pass through the canal. Corn and nogs. From carefully conducted experiments by different persons, it has been asper tained ihat one bushel of corn will make a little over 10J pounds of pork gross. Taking the results as a basis, the follow ing deductions are made, which all our farmers would do well to lay up for a convenient reference ; that: When corn costs 12c per bushel,pork costs 1 Je. per pound. When corn costs 17c. per bushehpoik costs 2c. per pound. When corn costi 25c. per busbehpork costs 3c. per pound. When corn costs 33c. per busuel,pork costs 4c. per pound. When corn oosts oOc. per busheI,pork costs 5c. per pound. The following statements show what the farmer realizes ou his corn when in the form of pork : When pork sells for 3c. per pound; it brings 25c. per bushel in corn. When pork sells for 4c. per pound, it brings 45c. per bushel in corn. "x change. A Jlinnesota church has a large trian gle instead of a bell.

The population of the Union, despite all the ravages of the late w ar and the stagnation of the South, will undoubted ly amount to 40,000,000. We shall thus in numbers be superior to Great Britain, our old parent country, which does not exceed 35,000,000.. We shall be about equal to France, and ahead of Austria and Prussia. To only one of the great powers will we be inferior, viz. ; Russia, which has between 70,000,000 . and 80, 000. It is singular that three of the greatest nations now in the world were unknown in 1700, 169 years ago. They were the United States, Russia and Prus sia. Prussia was the creation of Fred erick the Great, who did not commence to reign until 1740. Russia was the off spring of Peter the Great, who died in 1726. The United States was no pow er until a century after that. Austria and France were then the great powers in connection with Spain. In this coun try we have inci cased from 3,000,000 in 1776 to thirteen times that number in 1870. Supreme Court Decision. In the Supreme Court on the 1st inst, the' opinion delivered by Chief Justice Chase, in the case of Thornington vs. Smith & Hasly, in which the Court de cided a promissory note given in pay ment for property purchased at Mont gomery, Alabama, in 1864, wheu the au thority of the United States was exclud ed from that part of the State, and the only curtency in use was Confederate treasury notes, is payable in Confederate notes alone, and the United States Courts possess power to enforce the same. The Court also ruled that contracts stipula ting for payments in that currency . can not be regarded as made in aid of foreign invasion in the one case or of domestic insurrection in the other. They have no necessary relation to the hostile Govern ment whether invading or insurgent They are transactions in the ordinary course of civil society, and they may in directly and remotely point to the ends of the unlawful Government, and they are without blame except when proved to have been entered into with actual in tent to further the invasion or insurrec tion. OhioOfficial. The following is reported as the offi cial returns of the late Ohio election : Hayes, 235,972 Pendleton, 228,332 Hayes majority 7,640 Last year, on secretary of State, it stood thus : Sherwood (Rep.) 267,065 Hubbard (Dem.) 249,682 Republican majority, 17,383 In 1867, for Governor the following vote was polled:. Hayes (Rep.) : 243,005 Thurman (Dem.) 240,022 Republican majority, ., ' ; - 2,983 It will be seen that the vote this year was 21,000 less than it was last year.and 12.000 less than it was in 1867. Either the Democratic vote of 1867 or 1868, cast in 1869, would have carried the State triumphantly. What Is Luxury! Cast polished plate glass, or the dried currents which we put into our Thanks-' giving pies ? one would naturally sup pose the former, but it is a great error. The Radical tariff makers evidently esteemed minced pies the greatest luxury for they have imposed only 15 per cent duty on plate glass less than 24 x 30 in ches, and 133 per cent on the black Zan te currents and 9S per cent on raisin3. You may have cheap plate glass in the one or two rooms in which the heavy tax on lumber has compelled you and your family to live, but you must not have Tha nkscivins pics or Christmas' puddings.
