SSHAFEB.—Wo have
received the Deueret New& extra, dated
July 1, containing the particulars of the
death and buna" of the Hon. Leonidas
Shaft-r, associate justice of the Territory.
Judge Shafer was found dead in his
bed. at his lodgings in Salt Lake city, on
the 20th ot June. At an inquest held,
the physicians tested that his death was
occasioned by the destruction of the bone
burst and the master penetrated nto the
brain. He had been for some time
plaining of a great pain in the ear.
Judge Kinney delivered an oration on
the occasion of his burial.— Judge Sha
fer was a native ol Virginia, and in
1852, was appuinted ly Mr. Fillmore to

The latest news of the kind ia the re
cent outrage at Atchison, Kansas. In
the early stages of the settling of per
sons iu that territory, little items of news
was frequeutly to be met with that did
not reflect any cred to the Sovereigns."
For my part I looked upon those rumors
as the envyings of the opponents of the
territorial organization, and as nothing
more than was incident the settling of
any new territory neither did I beiieva
that those base and beineus frauds, as
complained of, in the election of mem
bers of the legislature were half so enor
mous as represented. Not unil recent
ly—not until the published proceedings
of that uody, styling itself the legislature,
made their appearance through the press,
have I came the conclusion that there
was a determination on the part of the
slave interest to make Kansas a slave
state: aud not until recently have I p'aced
any reliance in the various reports in re
tard to the outrages, insu'ts and mal
treatment of persons who l.ave the man

A reporter of the N. Y. Herald fur
nishes the following thrilling account of
titt disaster:
of the most fearful and fatal rail
road accidents that ev«i occurred in the
vicinity of New York, took place On the
Camden and Amboy Railroad yesterday
morning, (Aug. 29) about 11 o'clock,
with HI a half a mild ol liw town of Bar*
lingtou, N.
As the 10 o'clock triin from Camden
for New York passed through Burlington
behind time (about fifteen minutes,) the
8 o'clock train trom New York caiiM
view, under full headway. The Camden
traiu immediately stopped, and the engi
neer commenced, as soon as practicable,
to reverse the wheels, so as to return to
the statiou he had a lew moments befoie
left, and enable the New Ycrk train to
pass unobstructed. Unfortunately, how
ever, as the train was under headway,
going at the rate of least 12 or 15 miles
an hour, a two horse wagon, driven by a
person named Dr. Hannegan, came down
a road crossing the (rack, and before the
driver could stop the speed of the annua s,
the re .r car struck the horses, and was
thrown off the rails, and driven up against
aa embankment. The force with winch
the tram was movmg when the accident
took place caused a dreadful crash.
Four cars (the rear ones)were smash
ed to pieces, and ail the passengers more
or less injttied, or killed. I he two last
cars, containing aboat filty people, xvere
knocked mto splinters by inn force oi the
concussion, and it was toe occupants oi
these cars wno suffered most severely.
The scene that followed the dreadful
crash can he better mngined thau descri
bed. Fur more than IHty yards, lay Scat
tered round tifcc loans ot the mangled
corpses aud the mutilated bodies of the
wounded, uiiosc moans and skrieks
for help were enough to make the

ifusion attending the calamity had sub
saied, thoje who were uuuuit exerteU
every nerve aud muscle in rest uing their
fellow crea ures troui Hie ruu.s.
While trus sad woik was going ou,
fathers, inotheii and children inigut be
seeu wildly rushing Irom one spot to
another, u searcU ol those dear relatives
with whom a few momeuts previously
they had been conversing in safety.
Many were rejoicing to find their mis
givings uuiounded, but a great number,
alas! were destined to hod tne object ol
liieir search lying inau^led corpses, or
suffering tne most excruciating twflure
from broken limba. The sceue was in
deed, a heait-sickmng one.
When the news ol the accident reach
ed Burluigton, the inhabitants i tne vil
lage, iike good Samaritans, hunted to Uie
scene ot wot with wagons and inters tor

a place of shelter. The physicians of the
place also hastened forward and lent ah
their aid in soothing tue agonies to Uie
Seventeen persons were picked up
qu.te dead, while in a fear hours alter
wards eight others died from
of their injuries.
Over thirty of the passengers—men,
women and children were drugged iioui
the rums alive. They were ta^en to the
principal hotel in tue city, and there
kindiy taken care of by the host aud his
good iady.
A telegraphic dispatch aauouncing the
accident, was sent 10 Camden, wnen a
number of physicians irom Pnilauelpuia
started for Burlington in the 2 o'clock
train, in order to allb.d all the relict thev
could to the wounded.
Alauy were tue hair-bread th escapes

Benjamin R. Mills, oi Bridgeport, Conn,
was knocked through the bottom ol the

while a man named Humphry*, ol Peoria,

The Philadelphia tra.n was composed
of six cars, four o! which, as we have said

until he came within lull sight of it.

the engines but this had to he effected

Executive Patronage,
Milton S. Latha n, who was recently
appointed Collector at San Francisco, is
the ex-member of Congres from Califor
nia, who voted for the Kansas-Nebraska
bill. —Verily, he lias received his reward.
Numerous as are the inconsistencies of
the sham Democracy, no particular one
is more glaring or more reprehensible
than the practice of the Executive ap
pointing to lucrative offices men who
have misrepresented their constituents,
and voted in favor of measures recom
mended by the Executive, with the un
derstanding that though they might be
repudiated by Uie people, they were en
tered ou the books as the sure aud meri
torious subjects ol Presidential patronage.
By no 1'resident has this most dange
rous a id anti-republican practice been car
nen to a greale extent than by Mr. Pier
ce. the members oi Congiesa or their
relations or tnends, who nave received
offices ou account of the votes which were
given in accordance with the known wish
es or recommendations of the President,
can be counted by scores.

W e submit it to any honest intelligent
Democrat, it there be the least element
of true democracy in thus paying mem
bers ol Congress for voting against the
kunvn wishes aud opinions ol iheir con
stituents. It is a notorious and an unde
nted tact, that in the matter of the Kan
sas bill, many men bears knowingly and
deliberately misrepresented their consti
tuents, in proofe herelor they have since
been indignantly rejected by tne people.
But true to the pie Igel which must have
passed between them, the President nas
stepped forward and offered the emolu
ments of office as an equivalent for their
political defeats, and a payment for their
subeervence to the will of the Executive.
I bis practice is decidedly the most dan
gerous that can be introduced mto the
administration of public affairs. A bold
