M.& WRECK A RAILROAD An Entire Train Hurled Down an Embankment, CAUSE!) BY A BROKEN RAIL. Sixty-Two Out of 127 I'nRSCiiger Aboard Injured, Ncvcrnl Futility Snmcs of the Injured Xoboily to Illnmc. Cincinnati, April 1. A tcrriblo accident on tho Cincinnati Southern Railroad Friday morning startled tho pcoplo of Cincinnati and the surrounding towns, when the news, after much delay, was "permitted to be given out, which was not until some time after noon. Train No. C, which left Chattanooga at 4:80 p.m. on Thursday, struck a broken rail one mile south of Muson Station, forty-one miles from Ciucinnntl, at C 'o'clock in the morning, and tho cntiro train, except tho locomotive and baggage car, was thrown over an embankment fifty feet high. Thero wore 127 passengers on board, many of whom were in the sleepers, of which were two, attached to the train, and perhaps most of them were asleep at the time The train consisted of a baggago car, smoking car, one coach, and two sleeper. Tho train at the time was running at tho rate of forty miles an hour arouud a slight curve, and the crash as the cars crowded upon cacli other and then dashed over the frightful declivity must have been terrible. Sixty-two peion were injured, but none were killed, strange to say, but several of the wounded are so seriously hurt that they can not recover. The list of wounded and their pluccs of residence are given further nloug. The cause of the accident is attributed to a broken rail, caused by a freight train which had passed over the track but a short time before. The engineer, as the headlight flushed its rays a hundred feet ahead of the locumothe, saw tho broken rail, but was too lMe to stop the train, and the human being., unconscious of their danger, and asleep or thinking of family and friends they were soon to meet, were suddenly awaken d. or realized in tbe moment the inviul that awaited them. The scenes ilmt lol lowed, as in all such caitC.s, are beyond description. Even' those who are in them fail utterly to give uuy clear account, and all attempts at description by other is the work of imagination purely. One fact is patent, aud no one cuu blnuie them namely, that the few train employes were pauic stricken. But as soon us they and tbe uninjured could do so, tho wounded were extricated and cared for as best could be done. Passengers state that the walls and cries of women and children- wero heartrending. A teleguuu was sent to Williamstown, nnd such conveyances as could be socured were hurriedly dispatched to tho sccno of tho accident, aud the wounded wore takon to the town, where their wounds were dressod. A train was made up and oamo to tho city, arriving hero at 2 p. in., and most of the wounded were taken to tie Cinoinnnti Hospital. Those slightly hurt went to hotels, or continued their journeys on the evening trains. , To add to the horror of the accident, one car took (ho and seemed destined to burn before those confined benpath it could ho rescued. Fortunately, by prompt work, the Humes, were extinguished, andthe fearful death by burning was not added to tho other casualties. The uurac of the engineer of the wreaked train could not be learned last night. He is said to bo a new man, but no blamo is attached to him. Conduotor Ward was in charge of the train. E. D. Emery, of Athens, Ga., states that ho was iu the ladies' car when it went down the embankment. He elinched to one of the scats, and did not know anything, as the shock knooked him senseless. When ho recovered consciousness he found the car ablaze, and heard the screams oi a woman. He rushed to her and took her out, thus saving her life. The excitement was too great to learn her name, aud ho left her too look after his baggage, which ho was unable to find. Jamo.s A. Spaulding was in the samo car with Mr. Emery. Tho car which these two gentlemen were in turned several times before it reached tho foot of tho embankment, aud caught tire from the stove, which was upset by the tumbling of the car.

The Ohio Wool Growers' Association met yosterday in tho offioe of the State Board of Agrioulture, with President Columbus Delano in the chair. Forty-seven members were present. The report of tho committee sent to Washington to oppose the wool feature in the-tariff bill was read and commended. It gave in detail the action of the committee while in Washington, uud demonstrated in strong language the injustice done to the wool growers by the tariff legislation, in respect to raw wool by tho reduction thereon, while thorc was a increase iu favor in' manufacturers of woolens. The President made a report in regard to his efforts to induce Sen u tor Shurmau to vote uguinst the bill, and said that thoy expected Sherman to vote in their favor; that the dufeul wui brought about by tho woolen manufacturing interests of New England, and t mt in all his experience in Congress lie hud nover seen so strong a lobby as there was iu behalf of I the passage of tho bill. Tuo bill has been 1 passed by a communnto stroke on tho part I of its advocates, by taking it up out of ita i regular order and crowding it through. Resolutions wero adopted strongly condemnatory of the action of Congress on tho wool question, especially as to its bearing against tho wool growing interests of the State and county.

London, Maroh 81. An important interview with Mr. Parnell was had to-day by a correspondent. Tho first question was whether ho thought that the measures of repression would btoomo yot moro stringont in consequents of the recent events in London, which havo been attributed to Irish revolutionary agents. Mr. Parnell sntilod Ironically and said: "Tho soverity of Bngland oannot be werso than it is without sho has recourse to a sanguinary repression. Wo already live under a veritable state of scige." " Is there still as uoh want and misery ia Ireland as was reoently reported 1" "There is much store. Since tho Land Lesguo was dissolved, tko destitution of tho peasantry has mods rapid strides. I and ay friends havo no moro funds at our disposal and if wo attempted to raise any wo would b saet at evaty step by tho opposition of tho JtaglUh Government." " But does not tho Government itself extend aid to the starving poof le ? M " Govoiumont aid ia Ireland Is oonfiacd solely to the work-houses, and they aro so organized and goveraod that they resemble nothing but houses of detention. Ratktr than enter them tho people prefer to die, and thoy do die." "Can you give any reason why England should act with systematic oruelty toward tho Irish?" "Yes; it is a definite policy of cruelty daliberatly adopted, and remorselessly practiced to forco the peasantry to emigrate. It would be a rood riddance for hrr. On the day when the last Irishman shall abandon his country, or die of starvation on the land he no longor can cultivate, Ihiglatu will triumph." ' Will not ?ome relief follow the gathering of the spring crops'.'" No, for the rennou that thrre are no crops Tho spring is here, but there hn been no seed to sow, anil nothing, or ni'xt to nothing, has bei'ii grown. Them W in outlook tor the Irish peasantry ibis eai but famiuu aud despair." DOKHICV'S TIJMTIMOXY. Hi (plains lU'aritlii? Hit CIuiuIimiIii lioiid. Washington, April 1. The Star trial opened Sa'u day with a duiuati'l foi Uoivev's bv Merrick. Dor-tm he would produce the book if it did no! contain names that had no business to It-bi ought into his case. Dorsey thcu ii HPstioned about the inter iew with Boone, that the latter had testified to. It a coi rect, ho said, except that one-third iu the bids hid beuu settle 1 on us going to Boono for his services in getting them up. Dor.sey said he had opposed his biother's and Peck's going into the mail ooutia.'t business because they hud not nuiuc enough. The Cloudeniu bonds wero then brought up, and the witness explained that ho supposed they wore made out according to universal custom, and asserted that there was nothing unlawful about them. Merrick here wanted to read a letter to tho witness, whioh was claimed to bo written by tho witness, but the court ruled that all sttoh loiters must bo read by tho witness' counsel, as tbo witness' eyosight was too bad for him to read letters or papers. The lettor was admitted, and was from Dorsoy, to Clendeniu, postmaster at Bntesville, Ark., written after Clemlonin had declined to certify to the boud.s. Dorsey wrote that he bad uot seen tho bonds, and had no interest in them ; that thoy wero sent him by Boone, a mutual friend. Dorsey went on to say that Judge Edmonds, the ostuinster hore, was in tbo habit of certifying to such bonds without knowing the bouds, regarding tho certificate under tho law, as tho expression of an opinion, and not tho certificate of a fact. He clonod tho lettor by saying: " I have nothing more to do with the bouds, You can send them to Adams, return them to Boone, or burn them tip. It is a mutter of total indifference to mo which you do," Referring to a sub-contract which he was charged with changing, he asked what por cent, the sub-contractor was to got of the increaso and expedition of tho route. " Sixty-five," said Merriok. Dorsey replied, enooringly, " Well, if tho got 05 per oent., and Brady 83 per cent., thero was not much show for the contractor." Dorsey is still on tho stand. TtViW NICKBl. it TMine n Serious Mistake, on A fount of AdvsmtaT OflTerod to Count rrlal tor. Wasiiinoton, April 1. A groat deal has been said about the niokel pieoes, but a ! stnuowhat startling discovery was mado this afternoon, which is convincing evidence that tho now pieces aro playing tho role of "heavy villian" on our monetary stage. " I)J von know," said a prominent seoret service officer, " that arrests of parties engaged in gilding and passing tho now niokels as $5 gold pieces havo boen mado by our men in California, St. Louis, Pittsburg, Chicago, Louisiana, Nashville, New York, Boston, Kansas City, Duhuque,' and other places?" " Well, no," I respondod. " But thore have," continued tho officer; "and complaints are being roceived every day from all parts of the country. Some District Attorneys are in doubt as to tho law in juch cases, but several havo already found intliotmeuts against the guilty parties." "How does tho Solicitor of the Treasury regard the matter?" 1 quoriod. "Oh, ho has no doubt as to tho act of gilding tho pieces being one of counterfeiting, and that all persons possessing such gilded coins aro liable at any time to be compelled to show honest intentions in their possession." " Will tho fact that the word 'cents ' is to be added to the new pieces docrease tho habit of gilding?" " No, not raatorially. Tho ignorant and many intelligent persons will still aeeept them as $5 pieces, as tho reverse of tho piece is very similar to the gold coin." Another Treasury official said tho nieklo pieoes were a grave mistake, and that they should never havo been made. " Why," ho said, " men are paying a premium for thom, and tho reoorda of the Secret Servico will skow their purpose in doing this." Thoy wore designed to perpetuate somebody's memory, and they will do it. Tho penitentiaries will soon bo full of living monuments to tho greatness of their Inventor.

The t'ourt said this was an interesting case ; that tho counsel was right when he &aid that Blaokstone did not put it down as an offense at common law. Blackstoue wrote in 1745, but in tbe Court of the King's llencli it was beld otherwise, aud ho lend a number of authorities sustaining this view. He hold that this was an indictable oll'cn.se, aud it whs not sufficient to show that it Mas for the advancement of boicuce. The ('ottit asked, "Was thero a case worse than this?" The body is stolen from tho grave, taken to u medical college, then stolen from the medical colh'gi' and unwind louud the sttets in a manner which would disgrace a quarter of beef this nude corpse iu n carriage with two men uud tun hor.scs.und tho brutes wero not outside! .In risen said that he had been in this country for twenty-live years, and had coiimiilicil no crime, mo had talked with citiciin and been told that it was no crime to take bodie from tho potter'. field..

He tells u straight sl6ryofthe killing of Wood Kite by Dick Llddle, and tho circumstances which led Jo the suit for $25,-000 damages instituted by Mrs. Hite, Wood's stopmother, against the Louisville Courier-Journal. Tho Courier-Journal said that Jesse James had been criminally intimate with Mrs. Hito. This was an alleged libel. Governor Crittenden, of Missouri, was a witness in tho caso, which was won by tho paper. Charley Por'd states that Jesso James novor had anything to do with Mrs. Hite. Ho never ran after women. Tho man, he says, who did visit Mrs. Hito was. Dick Liddle. 'Afterwards Diok discovered that Mrs. Hito was sending lovo mossages to ono Hibbitt. JUito killed tho colored man who carried tho mossages.
