Denver, Oct. 3. There was a very bad acccident on the South Park road yesterday evening about 7 o'clock. The excursion accommodation was running along at a high rate of speed, when the Leadville freight swung around a curve about a mile east of the powder works, and the two trains came together tvith a crash. One engine was thrown di rectly across the track, and the other was badly wrecked. There were few passengers on the accommodation and they were badly shaken up, but very fortunately the injuries were confined to bruises. In addition to the engines several cars were wrecked and the train to Leadville was delayed nearly hours. The South Park east bound train did not arrive until nearly 3 o'clock this morning and the Leadville train did not start until 3:30. The damage done is nearly $30,000. Killed by the Cats.

The Denver Dead Man. Denver, Oct. 3. Coroner McPat ton yesterday visited the spot near Littleton where the dead body of an unknown man was found the day be fore. It was not identified, as he had been dead at least three months, as his body was reduced to a mere skeleton. A revolver, with one empty chamber, was found near, which leads to the be lief that he committed suicide. In his pocket was found a small amount of silver money and a note book, in which had been written scraps of short poems of some merit, one commencing, "The clarions of the d.iy," etc., the name, G. II. Baker, appearing at the end. The name, Parsons, also appears several times, and it is thought that this was the dead man's name. No clue can be gained as to where he had ever lived, his age, or the name of any person other than those mentioned by which his identy might be learned. His remains were gathered up, placed in a coffin and brought to the city last night. He will be buried to-day. Colorado State Fair. Denver, Oct. 3.

How the President Enjoys His Vacation, New York, Oct. 3. A World's special from Alexandria Bay, says; President Arthur arrived here last Thursday with his friend R. G. Dunn and went to the Grossman House.where the ground floor was given up to his use. The summer guests of the hotel have gone, and the president has the whole house to himself. "That extra month during which I was obliged to remain in "Washington,' he said this morning, "was too muoh for me. I was here before, and I like this place and I was assured here of perfect quiet, and then I am fond of fishing and hare hunting. I have en joyed excellent sport since I have been here, having been out with my friend every day. On Saturday I caught some fine bass and a muscalunge. The president wishes to avoid com pany, and so has had but few callers since his arrival. The steam yacht Minnie was chartered for ten days by friend of the presidents and placd at his disposal while he remains here. Each day about 11 o'clock he and Mr. Dunn started out in her, towing a couple of boats from which they fish on their arrival at the fishing ground some ten or twelve miles below there. To-day the presi dent caught nineteen pickerel and bass. Thursday next is the president s birth day, when he will be fifty-two years old. In honor of tne oacasion Mr. Crossmau has arranged for a recep tion, which will take place after the return of the President from his sport on the river. A Poisoned Boquet. Washington, Oct. 3.

The Half-Breeds Refuse to Support the Stalwart Nominee on Account of Irregularities. The Candidate's Past Record Urged In Extenuation of the Circumstances Covering His Nomination. What the Leading Newspapers of the Empire State Think of the Letter of Acceptance. Nevada Jones Is New Talked of as the Prob able Successor of Judge Folger in the Treasury Department. New York, Oct. 3. Folger's charac ter and good intentions are every rea sonable assurance that he will make an excellent governor , in spite of the in fluences that have been entered in be half of his candidacy. It will suffice to meet one of the chief objections of those who are dissatisfied that his rec ord is .fixed beyond recall, and that it is not in his power to wipeMt out. Still with all thi3 it is true that the Repub licans of this State were not permitted by an untrammelled choice, and the free exercise of their delegated power, to honestly and fairly nominate ;heir own candidate for governor, and mahy of them feel that to vindicate this principle is even more important for the time being, than the excellent ideas of state and national policy which are urged in his letter of ac ceptance . The Evening Post says: j uuge x oi- ger's letter of acceptance is not a cheer ful nor inspiring document, and it could not well be under the existing circumstances. A man who feels him self obliged to give an elaborate apology to the people for being their candidate, and who virtually asks them for a suspension of judgement as to the consciousness of his conduct in accepting the nomination, cannot be expected to easily tree himseii irom a certain depression of spirits when speaking to the pubiic. It is the cir cumstances and influences surrounding him, making his election unacceptable to a large element in tbe Republican party, and the confession of me person al feelings with regard to the candi dacy therefore, which are rather calcu lated to strengthen than weaken their objections to him. The Commercial Advertiser says Nothing can be said here that would add strength to Mr. Folger's statement, his dignity, his frankness, his sincerity and devotion to republican principles, Speaking for themselves, the duty of republicans is plain, to elect their ticK- et. and elect it for the reasons that have been so forcibly stated in this letter of acceptance, there can be no turning back or aside; the field is before the Republican party, and they would be untrue to themselves and their great party if they do not win it. The Times says : Unfortunately not even his, Folgers great ability and high attainments, are equal to the sit uation. The Evening Telegram : Folger probably erred in his estimate of the damage which the party would incur, by his rightfully declining the nomi nation, and he is evidently wrong in imagining that his party can be bene fitted by his assenting to the consum- ation of an acknowledged wrong, The Mail and Express : As might be expected of so brave and honest a man, he faces without fear and handles without gloves the Convention frauds, that bad been so dishonestly manipula ted and misrepresented in the interests calumuny and chaos. This letter comes from a man utterly devoid of cowardice and that always answers all pretendere. Judge Folger's reviews the calumny, history and frauds that ef fected only the single recommendation of the State committee, as to a tem porary chairman, and that did not ef fect a single vote in the convention, on the preliminary skirmish in its pro ceedings. The Brooklyn Eagle: t olger s letter accepting the so-called republican nom ination, is the most extraordinary doc ument in our political literature; nev er before, to the Eagle's knowledge, has it been deemed necessary by a candi date for this great office to present himself as an apologist.nor to acknowl edge the frauds in a convention that submitted bis name to the people. The Brooklyn Times: Judge lol- ger's column or more, which he devoir ed to an apology for not declining, is a sorely discouraging prelude to his statement of principles accompanying the letter. The declaration from Mr. Hetburn puts an additional plaintive strain into this sad dirge of stalwart methods and mismanagement. A Nomination. . Boston, Oct. 3. The contest iu the sixth Republican congress convention was discontinued until 5:30 this morn ing when Elijha S. Converse was nom inated on the 130th ballot. Eleventh Massachussett District. Greenfield, Mass., Oct. 3. The Republicans of the 11th congressional district have nominated Wm. Whiting. reiser's Successor. New York, Oct. 3. The Sun's Washington special says the report that Nevada Jones wiil succeed Judge Folger as secretary of the treasury is believed to have a good deal of basis. Last fall when it was known that Gen eral Arthur would recast his -cabinet Jones name was prominently mention ed in connection with the cabinet. When he was asked about it he replied itbout it that he represented a sovereign state in the senate and he would be a fool to exchange that for,a clerkship, no matter how dignified, but it is thought that he has changed his mind. In an account of an interview which bears marks of careful preparation, he shows not only that he lias vigorous ideas on the financial question, but that also his ideas are quite different from those which have guided Folger. Jones has gone on a ptumping tour through the Pacific slope states. His course, not only in voting to override the river and harbor bill veto, but ii'so in being one of the three senators who arranged the convenient mid dishonest pairing by which the bill was passed over th3 veto in the senate did not cost him the friendship Of tiie presi dent, and ;t is believed when Folger goes, Nevada Jones will come. W. E. Chandler, however, would probably regard such a change for the woiso. MARKETS. Stock Quotations. New York, Oct. 3. Silver bars, 113 J. Money close, at 73 per cent. Governments, firm.

Jacob Livengood, a wealthy Dunk- ard, about 80 years old, who lives re tired upon his farm near Salisbury, six miles from this place, whs swindled out of $3,000 a day or two ago by a gang of sharpers traveling with M. M. Ilil- liard's "Great Pacific Equiscurriculura," which showed in Salisbury that day. The two principal swindlers claimed to be Rev. Wm. Miller, a Lutheran clergy man, from Uniontown, who was at tending a church meeting in the neigh borhood, and Judge Wilson, of Lan caster . county, formerly on the su preme bench, and a candidate for the U. S. sen tte. The old gentleman trust ed to his distinguished guests and went with them to see a peculiar curly haired horse which was said to bo there. They took him into an annex and Introduced him to a little lotterv game they were working. The self- styled clergyman suggested that it might be utilized for the benelit of the church, as a scientific modification of the well-worn grab-bag device, and of fered to take an interest in it, putting up $ d,m U as his share. 1 he old farm er drove to Myer. da'e with the preach er, drew $:j,UOU out of the bank and was scarcely back at the tent before one of tbe gang had the money. . The clergyman shed copious tours at his friend s loss, and the old farmer was so agitated that he could give no con nected, yccount of the aff.tir last night. Officers are in pursuit of the sw indlers, who have probably gone over the southern border.
