A crowd of Cameroa men called on

of tbem had been in tbe Cincinnati

took pains to inform Mr. Haven tbat

His pictures give you no Idea of tbe

cot more by bis face than bis entire

The mail ;ar destroyed in the acci

nigbt, waa tbe elegant coacb, "Gov

Centennial, and wbich cost $3,000.
It contained an nnusuaily valuable
cargo. Iu tbe mails were s half-mill Ion
dollars' worth of gold and registered
letters. Both that and tbe baggage
car were completely telescoped to
gether, caught fire from tbe stoves,
and in a short time were entirely con
sumed. Tb9 six mail clerks,
miraculously escaped Instantaneous
destruction, by crawling out
through a bole in the middle of tbe
"Dix," just as it was enveloped in
flames. Some 1,100 pieces of baggage
were In the baggage car, wbich were
all burned up. Tbe gold in tbe mail
was consigned rv a San Francisco

Business Reviving in South Carolina.
The just and liberal southern policy
of tbe new Administration Is already
bearing fruit in South Carolina, as a
glance at tbe financial report pub
lished to day will show. Every de
scription of local security, witb one or
two exceptions, bas advanced in price
since Monday. It was natural that
quasi-political securities, each as State
bonds, should respond quickly to
favorable news, and tbe consolidated
bontU sow stand at tbe blgbeec point
tbey have ever reached in this mar
ket. But this Is not so valuable an
indication of returning public confi
dence as the striking advance in the
quotations of railroad securities.
Outside of the newspaper world, no
description of property feels the effect
of business depression more quickly
tban railroads do. Tbe South Caro
lina Railroad, witb its ramifications,
will be as prosperous a corporation as
there is iu tbe South wben the State
shall regain ber normal condition.
And tbe plain meaning of the active
demand for tbe bonds of tbat corpora
tion in, that tbe local capitalists feel
that South Carolina has reached the
tnrniog in the long, long lane, and
tbey now have some confidence in
the future of the State.
Tbe favorable effect of tbe Inaugur
al address and the Cabinet appoint
ments is not confined to Charleston.
Even in Beaufort, where tbe whites
are few and the colored people as
thick as blackberries in Juue, a de
mand for real estate at higher prices
has sprung up. and property in Bean
fort and Port Riyal is held firmlv, in
the hope tbat tbe "Old Flag" will be
followed by a liberal appropriation.
South Carolina bas been abnormal
ly depressed, but the State can not
be kept down. Give ber half a
chance, aDd with ber small dbt, in
dubtrious population, fine climate,
diversified agriculture and local self
government nnder Wade Hampton,
she will be as thriving a common
wealth in a year or two as can be
found in the Union. The advance in
the quotations for stocks and bonds
is the break in the clouds. If the

Why America May Expect Good Times.

land under cultivation in these United
States, nor such a large aggregate of

ties for transportation.

butter, cbeei-e, petroleum, eottoo, sil

bringing cash at fair prices.
5. There is plenty of money to be
bad at moderate rates of interest as
soon as iu owners consider it safe to
6. The bard times bave been tbe
best times we have bad (or revivals

7. Tbe wbcie cation bas been

otber countries is such as would en
able us to restore specie payments
now if we chose.
9. Our political troubles are over,
and an era of good feeling is .return

All tiiese reasons combined lead as
to anticipate the return of good busi

Lake Shore Michigan Southern
Railway, lo said township ot Ashta
bula, on tbe 30th and 31st days of De
cember, 1S76, ou toe Ht day of Jan
uary, 1S77, Identified by friends, and
removed for Interment ; as also tne
bodies and parts of bodies believed to
be tbe remains of twenty-seven so
burned that they could not be identi
fied, after visiting the scene of tbe
accident, viewing tba bodies, and
hearing tbe testimony of witnesses,
do find as follows :
"1. That at about half-past 7 o'clock
In tbe evening of Friday, December
29, 1876, the iron bridge on tbe rail
road of the Lake Shore A Michigan
Southern Railroad Company, span
ning Ashtabula Creek, near Ashtabu
la Station, on said railroad, did give
way under tbe two locomotives and
express car forming tbe forward por
tion of the West bound passenger
train on the said railroad, known as
No. 6, and fell aa the leading locomo
tive passed on the west abutment,
leaving a cbasta about sixty feet In
depth between tbe abutments of said
bridge, Into which tbe baggage and
passenger oars in said train following
said express car were precipitated.
"2. Tbat in their fall tbe cars were
partly destroyed by crushing, and
their destruction was completed by a
conflagration immediately following;.
kindled by Mr from their stoves.
"3. That the fall of the bridge waa
the result of defect and errors made
in designing, constructing and erect
ing it ; that a great defect, and one
which appears In many parts or tne
structure, was tbe dependence of every
member for its efficient action apon
the probability that all or nearly all,
the others would retain tbelr position
and do the duty for which tbey were
designed. Instead of civlng to each
member a positive connection witn
tbe rest, wbich nothing but a direct
rapture could sever, tbe members of
each truss were, instead ef being
fastened together, raised one upon tho
other, as Illustrated by the following
particulars : Tbe deficient cross-seo-tion
of portions of the chorda and
some of the main braces, and Insuffi
cient strength and bad arrangement
of both ; tbe horizontal and vertical
transverse bracing In the con
struction of the angle-blocks, aa
finally modified, without sufficient
lugs or flanges to keep the ends of the
main and counter-braces from slip
ping out of place ; in the eonstructioa
of tne packing and yokes used In
binding together the main and counter-braces
at the points where tbey
crossed each other ; in the shimming
of the top chords to compensate the
deficient length of some of their
members ; in the placing, during the
process of erection, of thick beams
where the plan required thin ones.
and thin ones where it required thick
"4. That the railway company used
and continued to nse this bridge for
about eleven years, during all of
which time a careful inspection by a
competent bridge engineer could not
nave failed to discover au these ae-
fects. For tbe neglect of each careful
inspection the railroad alone Is re-
"5. That the responsibility of this
fearful disaster and its consequent loss
of life rests upon the railroad eom
panv. which bv its Chief Executive
officer planned and erected the bridge.
"6. That the cars in wbicn said de
ceased passengers were carried Into
said chasm, were not heated by heat
ing apparatus so constructed that tbe
fire in it would be Immediately ex
tinguished whenever tbe ears are
thrown from tbe track and over
turned. Tbat the failure to comply
with tbe plain provisions of (he law
places the responsibility of tbe origin
of tbe fire upon the railroad company.
See act of May 4, 1569
"7. That the responsibility for not
putting out tbe fire, at tbe time it
first made lu appearance lu tbe
wreck, reefs upon those- who were
Lrst to arrive at the scene ot' tne dis
aster, and who seem to bave been so
overwhelmed by tbe fearful calamity
that tbey lostjall presence of mind, and
failed to use the means at baud, con
sisting of a steam pump In the pump
ing bouse and the fire engine Like
Erie and Its hose, wbich might have
been attached to the steam pump In
time to save life. Tbe steamer be
longing to the fire department and
also tbe Protection fire engloe, were
hauled more toan a mile tbrougn a
blinding snow storm and over roads
made almost Impassable by drifts of
snow, and arrived on tbe ground too
late to save human life ; but oothiog
should bave prevented the Chief En
gineer from making all possible ef
forts to extinguish what fire there re
mained. For bis fail a re to do this be
is responsible .
"8. That these persons, deceased
aforementioned, whose bodies are
fdentifled. aod thoee whose bodies
and parts of bodies were ualdentifisd,
came to their deaths by tbe precipita
tion of tbe aforeeaid ears, in wbich
tbey were riding, in tbe chasm in tne
valley of Astabula Creek, left by the
falling of the bridge as aforesaid, the
crushing and burning of ear afore
saidfor all of wbich the railroad
company is responsible.
