proposals for the cons|iction of a wharf 'ealed! W as any proposition ever more
the following diinelions, viz:
1'onunencing at ihtrout cf the large
measure
upon the support of the Democracy, and
to Ihem may be attributed the overthrow
of the Democratic party In litis State.—
And yr.t, these very men, acting more
like msdmen than anything else, get
together, and pass resolutions and adopt
insan*? \Was any richer farce ever en
acted? Do those lunatic* suppose t'.iey
can bring the Free Demoeracy of Iowa
over to their corrupt standard? Do iliey
imagine that democrats generally are
going to abandon the great lights of their
political faith, Jefferson nnJ Jackson,
who were opposed to «ite extension of
slave territory, and follow in the footsteps
of Douglas, the alave holder and slave
propagandist? I*. would cartainly seem
#o, notwithstanding the overthrow which
they have just experienced. Hut their
expectations will never be realized
They propose to re organize the party,
and for that purpose hold meetings in
every county. All this is very well
they ir.Hv get a few adherents in every
coun'y but their labor will be in vain.—
Their forces will be about like those of
Bombastes Forioso, a great general,
whose army consisted of a tail drum
mer, a big filer, a hungry corporal, and
one 'little private.
In view of this madness of a portion
of the Nebraska wing of the Iowa De*
inoctncy, there is only one course left for
the Free Democracy oi' our State to
pursue, which is, to organize upon prin
ciple throughout the Sure, and etand to
our colors regardless of conseqtteuc«s.—•

Rail Road Accident.
The express train coming down to
this city, (says a Chicago paper,) on the
Rock Island ro?d, Wednesduy nujht ran
over some cattle near Minooka, the first
station this side of Morris, by uhirh the
engine, tender ard baggage car were
thrown off the track, un I pretty well
demolished. Several other cars were
somewhnt broken up, but the worst fea
ture of the accident is the injuries to
persons on the train, though surprising
that they were no more severe or gener
al. The train *as running about twenty
miles per hour, and was brought up as
suddenly as if i: had struck a mountain.
The engine was thrown off the (.rack
and down the embankment immediately
upon striking the ox, and the whole train
stopped btiddinly.
In the pussenger cars a Mr. Shoemak
er, of Miami co., Ohio, had his thigh
broken. A little child sitting in her
mother's lap had one arm broken. Sev
eral other passengers received some
slight bruises. A br.tkeman named VV.
Uushnell hud both legs broken between
the platforms of two cars, one leg so bad
ly crushed that it was necessary to am
putate it. white the other may posvibly be
saved.
The baggage master escaped unhurt,
although his car was a perfect wreck,
and many of the trunks broken to pie
ces. His escape was almost miraculous,
and he is unable to tell how he enmo out
of the ear. So confident were the pass
engers that he was under the rubbibh,
that they pulled over a large portion of
it to find him, when he came up and
asked them "what they were looking
for."
The engineer, Wilson, was badly,
though not dangeiously, scalded by tbe
steam which escaped from the boiler af
tei the locomotive went over He was
able to crawl away from the aide of the
engine where he w&s thrown, to take of!
hit) clothing and reach a lounge in the sa
loon car, unaidei'. where he was found
and propeily cared for. The fireman
escaped with a few bruises, but in what
manner he is unable to tell.
The spot where the cattle jumped
upon the track was in a piece of woods,
and they were not seen until juat as the
engine struck them. The engineer had
only time to blow the whistle once when
he found the engine going over and him
self with it. IS'o bhme can therefore be
6tached to any one for the accident, but
it ia one of those ni' lancholy occurrences
which seem to be unavoidable.
