A FowL [Fol] IN AUsTRALIA.-After [Australia.-After] the fire was mie, [me] I ordered Jemmy to give the turkey to the black flows to cook, with the understanding that they were 5 to partake of it. They very soon managed to cook following manner they with their sticks made it deep hole in the sand, and into this hole they s threw a quantity of short junks of wood, sich [such] they lighted after burning this kind of wood in dhe [he] hole for the space of an hour, they placed the swkey [sake] in the hole, first bending the legs close to the body; after this, a sheet of bark was placed over the orice, [price] and the crevices stopped with sand. Another fire WAS made near the bark, and kept burning for ap-hour, when the bark was removed and the turkey igken [Ogden] out, beautifully and delicately cooked. The aroma taking out the bird was delicious. Bushmen are proverbially not very fastidious; but I felt no disin- [Dyson- destination] dination [donation] to eat the bird, after being cooked and handled br these blacks, and ordered Jemmy to take off the fathers. This was a very large bird, and gave us an exellent [excellent] supper as well as breakfast.-Journal of a Naturalist, in the Melbourne Argus. paxuM [maxim] OUTGENERALLED.-Jenny Lind and her panger [danger] have had a misunderstanding. On the night of her first concert she determined to give away in curity [purity] the whole of her receipts. Mr. Barnum informed jer [her] that her share would be 10,500 dollars, and told her heshould [he should] announce the gift from the stage. She re- [rested] ested [rested] him not to do so, but he did, and the effect was, x anticipated, to make her popular, in the highest derree. [degree] Subsequently Mr. Barnum, in overhauling his accounts, found, as he alleged, that she made but 7,000 ddlars [dollars] by that concert, and informed Jenny she must make up the deficiency in the donation out of her own funds. Jenny told him that he informed her she had 10,500 dollars to bestow, and that on the faith of that declaration she had committed herself. He must, there- [therefore] fore, correct the mistake out of his own pocket, which Barnum did. If this be all true, it shows that Jenny is not to be made a fool of by any one, and Barnum is reported to have said it was the first time he had been ouigeneralled [enrolled] by a woman. All the private anecdotes afloat of the nightingale commend her to the Americans, She has a head as well as a voice.-A meri- [merit- merino] om Papers. Tae [Tea] Cities OF LONDON AND Paris ComPaARED.-The [Compared.-The] report of Mf. Darcy, divisional inspector of the Ponts [Points] et Chaussées, [Chasers] who has been to England to obtain informa- [inform- information] tin relative to the Macadamised roads, has just been published. In this work we find the following icu- [ice- equals] las relative to the population, extent of the streets, &c. in Paris and London -The total surface of London is 210,000,000 of square metres; its population, 1,924,000; umber of houses 260,000; extent of the streets, 1126,000 metres extent of the streets, not including tle [te] foot-pavement, 6,000,000 metres; extent of the sewers, 639,000 metres. The total surface of Paris is 3,379,016 square metres population, 1,053,879; num- [sum- number] be of houses, 20,526 extent of the streets, 425,000 surface of the streets, exclusive of the foot- [document] javement, [pavement] 3,600,000 square metres; length of the sewers, 190.000 metres; surface of the foot-pavement, 888,000 uetres. [metres] Thus in London every inhabitant corresponds ty a surface of 100 metres; at Paris 34 metres. In London the average of inhabitants for each house is 74; a Paris 34. At London the average length for each house corresponds to 40 metres 40 centimes; at Paris ta length of street of 15 metres. These details eublish [publish] the difference which exists between the two cues, from which it appears that there is in London a stat extent of surface not built over; that the houses ae not very high; and that almost every family has its om. The Boulevards of Paris is the part where the traffic takes place, and the following are the teults [tilts] of the observations of M. Darcy on this subject 0u the Boulevard des Capucines [Captains] there pass every 24 hows 9,070 horses drawing carriages; Boulevard des luliens, [lines] 10,750; Boulevard Poissonnitre, [Poisoned] 7,720; Boule- [Boyle- Boiled] sud [sid] St. Denis, 9,609; Boulevard des Filles [Filled] du Cal- [Clara] Ra general average of the above, 8,600. Cha du Fauburg [Burg] St. Antoine, 4,300; Avenue des Se Ee 8959. At London, in Pall-mall, oppo- [op- appearing] Grin Majesty's Theatre, there pass, at least, 800 bane every hour. On London Bridge, not less than taf, [ta] every hour. On Westminster Bridge, the annual this ahounts [amounts] to not less than 8,000,000 horses. By tt will be seen, that the traffic in Paris does not wie we] up to one-half of what it is in the Macadamised Steets [Streets] of London.

Channing. THE Two Herores.-Sir [Heroes.-Sir] John Franklin, the hero of the Arctic expedition, has been twice married. For the first gallant adventure the late Lady Franklin worked the standard which he was to plant in the dreary regions of the North Pole-a deed worthy of a Spartan dame. But the courage and fortitude which she displayed in the contemplation of his departure, failed her when the moment of parting came. She sank under the trial of separation; and on the very day on which he raised the standard, he received the intelli- [until- intelligence] gence [Gents] of her death. The circumstance of the present Lady Franklin's petition to the Admiralty, that they would send out an expedition to the rescue of her gallant husband, is generally known; her name is as familiar as a household word in every home in England; she is alike the object of our admiration, of our sympathy, of our hopes, and of our prayers. God speed her mission, and give her patience to abide the end -The Home Circle. ee CurRE [Cure] FoR [For] GOITRE.-Dr. Grange, of Geneva, who has devoted a great part of his life to the study of the causes and cure of cretinism, has just published the result of his observations. It appears that both cretinism and wens proceed from the same cause, and that these disorders are particularly endemical [anatomical] in countries where the soil and waters are very rich in magnesia. Dr. Grange asserts that any person may get a wen, if such be his fancy, by drinking at springs highly impregnated with magnesia. He states iodurated [educated] kitchen salt, used for culinary purposes for the space of a year, to be a certain cure for, and preservative against the wen, without producing any other infirmity. Dr. Grange recommends his government to distribute iodu- [id- educated] rated salt in those places where the goitre is most prevalent. He also shows, from statistical accounts, that wens, contrary to universal belief, are more frequent in flat than moun- [mon- mountainous] tainous [tins] countries.

Intimations have also been received that delegates, though not yet appointed, may be expected from Liverpool, Birmingham, Coventry, Derby, Hull, Bradford, Preston, Bury, Rochdale, Warrington, &c. In addition to the representatives from those places, a number of gentle- [gentlemen] men interested in the education question, will attend in their individual capacities, and numerous societies, it 1s expected, will send representatives.- [representatives] Manchester Examiner.

The following letter, addressod, [address] in the first instance, to the British Banzer, [Banner] will, we doubt not, be read with con- [con] interest Y among the maionty. [maintain] of whom the writer, i formerly M.P. for is well known meee [mere] ' have read with the interest your able and impartial article on Homeopathy, in the last Number of your widely-extended and deservedly influential Journal 5 and, seeing the manner in which the opponents of this system exert every nerve to destroy its credit, and thus to obstruct its progress among manking, [making] I feel it a solemn duty, as one of the many thousands who have derived un- [unspeakable] speakable benefits from its use, to endeavour to neutralize these attempts of its enemies, by briefly describing the facts of which I have myself been the subject, as well as what I have witnessed in others; in the hope that by so doing the cause of truth in science, and of humanity in the abatement of disease and suffering, may be in some degree promoted by such a course. In the year 1830 I happened to be with my family at Paris, and there met the late Dr. John Borthwick Gilchrist, ee well known Oriental linguist, and Professor of Eastern anguages, [language] for many years e in preparing pupils in Hindustanee [Instantaneous] for the East Indi [India] Company's service He was then bordering on seventy years of age; but, after a long and active life remarkably free from illness, he had ecome [come] the victim of some disease which rapidly exhausted his strength, reduced his size, and brought him to such a state of imbecility, thut [that] he was in his second childhood his eyes protruded, his under lip fallen, his hands tremulous and paralyzed, [paralysed] and his memory and consciousness so ob- [obscured] scured [cured] that he could recognize no one except his affectionate wife, whose attention was such that she scarcely ever left his presence. During all the period of his suffering, the best medical advice that money could procure, in London and in Paris, was had for him, but all without avail; and when, with some difficulty, he was removed to Brussels, we expected that the next intelligence we should receive of him would be that of his death. six months after this, in the spring of 1831, while walking in Piccadilly, near the doctor's residence in Clarges-street, [Charges-street] I met, with as much astonishment as plea- [pleasure] sure, the same Dr. Gilchrist, walking erect, with firm and healthy step, his person filled out to its former size, and his whole aspect more full of strength, activity, and vi ur, than I had ever before seen him in his best days-for I had known him several years before his illness. 'In accosting him, I expressed my surprise and delight, and asked him to what cause was to be attributed his almost miraculous resurrection, from what appeared to us the brink of the grave, to his present happy condition He replied, that when at Brussels he had been placed under the homeo- [home- homeopathic] pathic [path] treatment by a physician there, and his recovery was as rapid as it was effectual, astonishing all his friends as well as himself. He asked me if I had ever read any- [anything] thing on the subject of this new system, to which I replied in the negative; when he told me that he felt so grateful for his cure that he determined to write a pamphlet on his case, which he afterwards sent me, and which I read with deep interest; but I regret to say, that, in my frequent wanderings since then, this pamphlet has been lost; and I cannot, therefore, refer to it for any details, In 1837, on resigning my seat in parliament, I made a visit to the United States of America, for the double pur- [our- purpose] pose of giving my lectures on the Countries of the Oriental orld, [old] and acquiring all the information I could respecting the institutions and condition of the t republic. We landed at New York in October; and my public labours commencing immediately, they were followed up so inces- [ince- incessantly] santly, [pleasantly] that the continued excitement of the throat, from much and loud speaking, and the extreme variability of the climate, prong on so severe an attack of bronchitis, that I was obliged to suspend my labours altogether. I had recourse to the best medical advice in the city; and, after the treatment prescribed by three separate physicians in succession, each persons of the largest practice, I derived so little benefit, that I entertained the resolution of aban [ban] doning [dining] my original intention of journeying through the country, and returning to England, from an impression that, owing to my peculiar liability to quinseyed [conveyed] sore throat (with which Thad been afflicted on four different occasions in England and in India, and each of such severity as to excite the greatest alarm for my safety), added to the trying nature of a North American climate, and its severe cold in winter, there was great aang [ang] of my sacrificing my life, if I per- [perpetual] etal [eta] in my public labours under such circumstances as ese At this conjuncture of aflairs, [affairs] a clergyman of my acquaint- [acquaintance] ance [once] called on me to invite me to dine with him, which I felt obliged to decline, from the state of my health (wasting night perspirations having accompanied this inflammation of the throat, and greatly reduced my strength), when he asked me if I knew anything of the homeopathic treatment, and whether I should be willing to-try it. I remembered the case of Dr. Gilchrist; and though from that period, 1830, to the year of this interview, 1837, I had no serious ailment, requiring medical advice, so that I had no occasion to have recourse to any change of system, I felt strongly disposed now to try it. To this, indeed, I was greatly en- [encouraged] couraged [courage] by the many proofs which this clerical friend adduced, of the efficacy of the homeopathic treatment in cases similar to my own, once in his own person, and several times in that of his friends. In the course of the same evening, he brought to me Dr. Vanderburgh, a gentleman born and educated in New York, descended from one of the old families of the original Dutch settlers there, and for many years one of the most eminent and su physicians of the allopathic school, but now as extensive a practitioner of homeopathy. This gentlemen, then about fifty years of age, had, from severe labour and the effects of a trying climate, en into a state of consumption, a disease more prevalent, perhaps, in the Northern States of America than in any part of the world; and was so reduced in strength by the ravages of this disease, which was manifested in its worst forms, that neither he himself nor any of his friends enter- [entertained] tained [gained] the least hope of his recovery. At length one of his relatives advised him to give homeopathy at least a trial, as all hope from every other source was gone; to which he replied, with as much ot indignation as his strength would admit, that he would never so far stain his professional reputation as to encourage this humbug, and that he would rather die than submit to be deluded by such arrant quackery. In his case, as in most similar ones, these terms were applied in utter ignorance of all the works written on the subject; the pride of professional eminence, and the indolence and aversion to innovation, so common to almost all professors of established systems, preventing his taking the only rational course of carefully examining a thing before condemning it. The near of death, however, and the quickened sense of duty which that solemn hour begets, induced him to rescind his former in- [inconsiderate] considerate refusal. He submitted to homeopathic treat- [treatment] ment, [men] and in six months he was gradually, but steadily and substantially, restored to his former state of health. As might have been expected in a conscientious man, he soon felt that it was his duty to study and practise a system from whence he had derived so much benefit, and he issued notices to his former friends and patients accordingly; when such was the confidence in his sincerity and skill, that ultimately his practice became larger than ever; and, at the period of Ris [Is] calling on me, which was about a year after his recovery, he had a practice which kept him in constant motion from early in the morning till late at night, and was as vigorous and healthy a man in all respects as any person of his age in the whole city. be Vanderburgh commenced his duties with me bya [by] long, careful, and patient examination of the history and progress of my disease, and, having satisfied himself on the minutest matters of symptoms, diet, &c., he took from his ket. [let] medicine-box some of those globules-the smallness of which is made the subject of so much ridicule by those who ought to know that much smaller globules than ever these, which float invisibly in the air, and can neither be seen, handled, weighed, tasted, nor felt, are powerful enough to convey pestilence from one region to another across the widest oceans; and that the poisoned arrows of the Indians, and the bite of the scorpion, the cobra, and other venomous animals, will kill the strongest man with smaller globules of poison than any that are administered by homeopathists; and to cure need hardly require larger quantities than to i -I am free to confess, however, that having, through all my previous life, seen medicine admin- [administered] istered [registered] in copious draughts, and bulky pills, and habitually associating quantity with force, I at first felt a little in- [incredulous] credulous as to the power of such an apparently simple agency to remove so confirmed and severe a disease as that from which I was then suffering; and, therefore, I had no active faith in the efficacy of the remedy applied. . A few days were, however, quite sufficient to prove its salutary effects; and, without any other change than that of ceasing to take the larger pills and copious draughts prescribed by the r faculty, and substituting for them the smaller globules of belladonna, bryonia, [Bryan] an sulphur, in highly diluted forms, and in succession at intervals of several hours apart for each separate medicine, and of two days between each change from the first to the second, and the second to the third, I was in three weeks restored to perfect health, my night perspirations ceased, my strength and appetite returned, and my throat was rendered so sound, and my voice so clear, that I speedily resumed my labours. From that time till I quitted America at the close of 1840, I passed three years of severe labour, in giving public lectures, or speaking at public meetings, almost every evening, from one to two hours at each time, and to audiences varying from 500 to 2,000 each; and in the day time, either travelling from town to town, or visiting the institutions and establishments of the country; enduring all the vicissitudes of weather, sometimes melting beneath the heat of Philadelphia, with the thermometer at 104 degrees, or braving the cold of Boston, with the ther- [the- thermometer] mometer [thermometer] 8 degrees below Zero; traversing the mountains of the Alleghanies, [Allegiance] the swamps of Virginia and Carolina; sleeping in log huts in the forests among the wild Indians; driving in open wagons across the praries [praise] of Illinois, or sleeping on the decks of steam-boats along the sedgy of the Mississippi from Canada in the north to New Orleans in the south, and trom [from] the borders of the Atlantic in the east to the banks of the Missouri in the west; enjo [enjoy] during all this period almost uninterrupted health, an removing every symptom of disease as soon as it appeared, by the prompt and timely application ot homeopathic remedies. . It would fill every column of your paper, ample as is its space, if I were to narrate to you the scores of cases well known to me in the circle of my immediate friends and ac- [acquaintances] quaintances, [acquaintance] as cured by homeopathy, when the allopathic physicians and surgeons had effected no benefit by their treatment, to say nothing of the cases of which I have heard through the testimony of others. But it will, perhaps, be sufficient to say, that from that period to this, now thirteen years ago, from 1837 to 1850, we have used no other reme- [mere- remedies] dies than homeopathic ones in my own family, and that we never, at any period of our lives, enjoyed better general health though age and hard labour has to mark its traces on me more visibly than before; but when a mana [man] proaches [preachers] towards his seventieth year, he cannot reasonably e t not to feel the advance of that weakness and infirmity which is insuperable from such a stage of his existence. . I most cordially rejoice, therefore, to see the establish- [establishment] ment [men] of Homeopathic Hospitals in London, and I hope to live to see them increase t out the country. The interests and the prejudices of established systems and their professors, have always opposed with great violence the introduction of any improvements which oblige them to renounce their favourite theories, and begin to learn new ones. Their intellect revolts at any admission of their ignorance; and, in the self-sufficiency of their wisdom, they claim to be infallible, and treat all innovators as ' humbugs and quacks. Their very be their anger, and their anger is proof of their write, carries a portfolio in his head, tok [to] rality. [reality] This is not peculiar, however, to the fessors [Professor] of medicine; it is common to almost all esta' [east] systems and their teachers-and the reason is in each case the same. All such changes have a tendency to excite alarm in them as to their pecuniary interests; and this being, with the majority ofmankind, [of mankind] the test by which they try every pro- [proposed] posed innovation, it is hailed as a good if it will put money in their pockets, it is donounced [pronounced] as an evil if it is thought likely to abstract it from them. This test will solve many a problem in politics, as well as in science. The parties who believe, whether rightly or wrongly, that the pecuniary interests of their class will be benefitted [benefit] by any innovations, hail them as g8; those who fear that such interests will suffer, dread them as curses; and each party acts ac- [accordingly] cordingly. [accordingly] But science and the interests of humanity ought, at least, to rise superior to such grovelling tests a3 these. the p of homeopathy-of mesmerism-of hydropathy-of [homeopathy-of] hypnotism, will not only lesson the amount of human suffering, by curing existing diseases more ra idly, and by less painful processes than before, but will -b i about such a change in the habitsof [habits of] mankind byencouragi [encourage] temperance, ing, ventilation, open-air exercise, sapls [sails] diet, early hours, and other great restoratives of natural health and strength, as to prevent the existence of many now unhappily from the mere violation of Nature's simplest laws; and if, thereby, mankind are saved from the nching [ching] system of bleedings, [buildings] blisterings, [sterling] vomitings, [vomiting] and purgings, [purging] with all their accompaniments of nausea and disgust, and can at the same time keep a large fay in rfect [perfect] health at an expense of 5 a-year instead of 50., the pecuniary loss to the medical profession may be considerable, just as the advance of temperance lessens the gains of brewers and distillers, gin-palaces and beer- [beer houses] houses, and as the electric telegraph has led to the discharge of all the officials who were paid to superintend the working of the old semaphore between London and Portsmouth, which has just been taken down by orders of the Admiralty, and just as the change from war to peace leads to the dis- [dismissal] missal of soldiers and sailors; yet the general good cannot fail to be promoted by every improvement that shall lessen the necessity for such medicine, and abate the cost of its administration 3 and on this ground the public will ulti- [ult- ultimately] mately [lately] view this question, leaving the medical profession to shift for themselves, as all other parties are compelled to do when their services are no longer needed. J. S. BUCKINGHAM. St. John's Wood. THE FRIMLEY MURDER. CONFESSION OF ONE OF THE MURDERERS. On Saturday the four prisoners charged with the murder of Mr. Hollest, [Holes] were brought up for examination before the local magistrates at Guildford. They had been confined up to this time in separate cells, and their legal adviser had not been permitted to have an interview with them, the magistrates deeming that such permission might obstruct the ends of justice. In conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of the resolution of the bench not to admit re- [reporters] porters to the examination on Saturday, only imperfect accounts of the proceedings have transpired. It is stated, however, that avery [very] important link in the evidence has been supplied, by the discovery upon one of the prisoners of S.conper [S.Cooper] token which was among a bagful of copper coins stolen from the house of Mr. Hollest. [Holes] Mrs. Hollest, [Holes] who was fully examined on Saturday, and repeated the whole of her previous story, tively [lively] identifies this coin by peculiar marks upon it. e had received it a few days before from the mistress of the village school, and had pointed out to her husband an obliteration of part of the design. Singularly enough, this was the only coin found upon one of the prisoners. The schoolmistress, Miss Bulpin, [Bullion] also identifies it very confidently. The only other important evidence was that of James Hockley, a broom maker, of Frimley, who deposed to having seen the pri- [pro- prisoner] soner [sooner] Trowler [Trawler] (calling himself Smith) on the Tuesday before the murder trying to sell some dishes. He told the witness that he had been to the parson's, and tried to get a drink of beer out of him, but had failed. He added that he hoped that something might happen to the old man before the end of the week, so that he might die. Trowler [Trawler] denied this statement in a very excited manner. The landlady of the inn at which Levi Harwood was living deposed that he was not at home on the night of the murder; and after some other evidence had been received, the investigation was adjourned till Friday (yesterday.) It will be satisfactory to the public to know that the above dreadful occurrence is now completely brought to light by the contession [concession] of one of the arties. [parties] On Monday afternoon Hiram Smith, alias Hiram Trowers, [Towers] one of the four men in custody, expressed a desire to see Mr. W. Keene, the governor of Guildford Gaol, where he is confined. Mr. Keene, accordingly went to him in his cell, and the prisoner then made a statement which was taken down in writing, of all the circumstances connected with dreadful affair, stating that the burglary was planned by himself and the other three men in custody, and that the fatal shot was fired by Levi Harwood. He also states that after the murder they all came to Kingston together, and Harwood. went to London to dispose of the stolen property, and when he came back he gave him 7s. 6d. as his share. The prisoner entered minutely into the details of the out- [outrage] rage, but stated that the pistol was only intended to terrify the inmates of the house into submission, and that there was no intention originally to commit any violence. It ap- [from] from inquiries that have since been set on foot, that the statement of the accomplice can be confirmed in many material points by independent testimony; and, if this should be correct, the case will be quite complete. COMPLETION OF A THOUSAND MILES IN A THOUSAND Hovurs.-This [Hours.-This] arduous task, undertaken for a wager of 250, was completed by James Searles, [Sales] of Leeds, at seven clock on Monday morning. At an early hour, Tranmere was crowded by persons of all grades who were anxious to see the pedestrian walk his thousandth mile. A large number of respectable persons was on the grounds, and the concourse of people was so great that some difficulty was experienced in clearing the course for the pedestrian. Some anxiety was manifested as to the time in which Searles [Sales] would walk his last mile; and we have heard that several heavy bets were made in the last hour. Just before start- [starting] ing, a gentleman offered to wager 10 with the pedestrian that he would not walk the mile under eight minutes. 'The frager [Fraser] was accepted by Searles, [Sales] who started immediately after seven o'clock, and completed the mile in the extraor- [extra- extraordinary] dinary [diary] short of 7 minutes and 41 seconds. He then ran once round the course with apparent ease, amid the cheering of the multitude. We believe that walking a mile in seven minutes and forty-one seconds stands unprece- [increase- interested] ted in pedestrian feats, and taking into account the diffi- [diff- difficult] cult task which Searles [Sales] had just completed, he must certainly be reckoned as the swiftest pedestrian of the day, and his powers of endurance most extraordinary. In order to show that his physical strength was not exhausted, he continued to walk a raile [rail] every hour up to four o'clock on Monday. He walked four miles backward in the course of the day, each of which he completed under fifteen minutes. He afterwards proceeded to a weighing machine, where it was found he Pad, during the last few days, lost seven pounds in weight. The health, appetite, and spirits of the pedestrian have, however, been remarkably good, and it is said that he has expressed a conviction that he could have endured his task for a fortnight longer. Searles, [Sales] for some time, will only be allowed to sleep for an hour or two at once, in order to prevent the ill effects which might result from a continued sleep which would be likely to follow so extended a period of unrest. The only difference perceived in Searles [Sales] was a little excitability and irritability of temper, evidently showing that his head was beginning to bea little affected.-Liverpool Mercury. SERIOUS ACCIDENT ON THE NoRTH [North] RaIbway.- [Railway.- Railway] An accident, which might have terminated fatally, oc- [occurred] curred [cured] on the Haddington Branch of the above line, on Monday last. The train in question was composed of three carriages, a truck, and the engine and tender. By some means the coupling between the tender and the truck broke, by the sudden darting of the engine of the rails. The engine, it appears, ran for a short distance along the side of the line, and then bolted down the embankment (which at this place was only some two or three feet high), into a field of turnips, ploughing up the ground for about forty or fifty yards, and finally coming to a stop when it had imbedded [embedded] itself to a depth equal to the height of the wheels. The driver kept his place on the engine during the whole time, but the stoker was suddenly swept off into the field by a piece of the telegraphic wire, which had been grawn [grain] out of its place by the funnel of the engine. The stoker was slightly injured about the head, but the engine driver was unhurt. The carriages and truck proceeded along the line for about twenty or thirty yards the third class carriage then fell on its side; when the coupling be- [between] tween it and the truck gave way-the latter, like the engine, being precipitated over the embankment into the field. The third class carriage is supposed to have been driven forward for a short way upon its broadside, and ultimately, from the force of the other carriages, to have been e to perform a complete somersault, so that the bottom framework and wheels lay uppermost. Unlike the engine and truck, it did not go over the embankment, but lay smashed in pieces upon the side of the railway, with part of the first class carriage, which had been turned com- [completely] pletely [lately] round, resting upon it. Several of the passengers were much injured, but no lives were lost upon the occasion. TERRIBLE AccIDENT [Accident] aT THE NEw [New] York STEAM Wuarr.-The [Ware.-The] New York Herald of Sept. 29, saya, [say] We regret to inform our readers that a very painful accident occurred at noon yesterday, on the starting of the steam- [steamship] ship Pacific. As soon as her wheels were set in motion, the guards to the wheel houses in some way got foul of the posts of an unfinished shed connected with a build- [building] ing, which was recently erected for the purpose of covering the whole pier, and carried them away, causing the fall of a great portion of the roof. A large number of persons were underneath the roof at the time, con- [consisting] sisting [sitting] of the friends of the passengers who were about leaving in that steam-ship, and hundreds of others, who were present for she purpose of witnessing the sailing of the vessel. Punctually at noon the ship was started, stern foremost, shs [she] having laid bow on. The tide was running up at the time, and a strong wind was blowing from the westward. The wind and the tide combined, brought her stern as close as possible to the dock, and the guards of the wheelhouse got in contact with the posts of the shed as above state. The crash was not very sudden, but rather gradual, thus allowing people a few seconds to get out of the way. When they saw that the shed must inevitably fall, many persons, with great presence of mind, rushed on board a canal boat which was lying at the end of the pier. As it is, but one man was killed, Mr. John Wilson, an elderly gentleman, about forty-five years of age. The unfortunate man was crushed to death by one of the heavy cross-beams-a stick of timber some eighteen inches in thickness. Many per- [persons] sons in the rush were thrown into the water, all of whom, it is believed, were saved. Several Irishmen were severely injured, some of whom are not expected to recover. E. K. Collins, Esq., agent of the steam-ship, particularly informed the coroner that all funeral expenses, medical bills for the relief of the injured parties, and all other necessary expenditures, would be paid by the company.

At one of these farms lived Mr. Thomas Drory, [Dry] son of a highly-respectable yeoman at Great Burstead, where he holds three farms. He has only held it two or three months, his father having previously occupied it. During the last two years of the father's possession a man named Thomas Last acted as bailiff to him, and, with his wife, who officiated as housekeeper, and his daughter-in-law, Jael [Joel] Denny, lived on the farm. In the course of the summer Mr. Drory, [Dry] sen., discover- [discovering] ing some improper intimacy between his son and the daughter of the bailiff, gave the latter notice to quit the property, in order to break off the connexion. Last accordingly left, with his wife and daughter, and they took up their abode in some cottages about half a mile from the farm. In a few weeks the farm was left by Mr. Drory [Dry] to his son's management, who, notwithstand- [not withstand- notwithstanding] ing his father's strict injunctions, resumed the intimacy with the unfortunate girl Denny. About this time it transpired that Drory [Dry] was paying his addresses to ano- [an- another] ther [the] girl of the name of Gibling, [Girling] who resides in Brent- [Brentwood] wood, and on the parents of Denny remonstrating with . Eventually, however, he admitted it to be the case, and, as the girl Denny was far advanced in pregnancy, he was exposed to much talk for the heartless manner in which he had treated her. As the period of her confinement approached the poor creature importuned him for money, which he promised, but only with the understanding, it would seem, that she would disown all connexion with him. The unhappy girl on more than one oecasion, [occasion] to hide her shame, yielded to his wishes and disclaimed all intimacy with him. Her parents, however, interfered, di J fact, he resolved upon giving her poison with a view of procuring abor- [abort- abortion] tion [ion] at least such was the assertion the unfortunate creature made to her mother. On Saturday afternoon, about four she quitted her parwnts' [parents] house. She returned in ashort [short] time, and appeared in somewhat better spirits, which the mother ascertained to have resulted from her having met Drory, [Dry] and his promising to marry her. She said that he had arranged to meet Was her in half-an-hour or so, and she thought all would be happy yet with her. At the appointed time she left, and shortly afterwards was seen in Drory's [Dry's] company, walking over some meadows away from their homes. Her parents waited up the whole night in anxious suspense for her return.
