One of Macncale k Urban's fire and burglar proof safes occupies an appropriate place behind the counter and on going into the bank parlor a centre-table covered with the lead-iog papers of the country meets the eye. This is a new and novel feature in banking houses anU has been introduced l;y this enterprising firm, for the purpose of giving the facilities of a first class reading room to their friends and dealers.  The manager of thi.«* house is Mr. W. W. Woollen well known in financial circles, not only in Indiana', but thoúghout the country. He loves his profession and may bo well satisfied with his success in it. He first engaged in the banking business at Madison, in this State, and in 1860 he removed to Franklin, and associating himself with his present partner, Mr. Willis a. Webb, and two other gentleman, established the ^nking house of Willis S. Webb & Co.

Tbe Tiger BlsMrgeg Twenty-SAi TlioiiMfta DoUant» Out  an.  > —  The Louisville Joumafj after moraliiing upon how few visit the jungle of the "Tiger" and escape unscratched, says:  One ot these rare instances, where the winner was able to resist the temptation to continue playing and save his winning, occurred in this city last week, and has created CTcat excitement in sporting circles. .  The fortunate fellow is a young man who, during last winter, was compelled to ask shelter from the cold, of people whom he could not call friends for then he had none. It is said he could not borrow a nickle fron any bodv, because all who knew him thought he conld|not repay them on account of his extreme poverty. He was so hard up at one time during the winter that he could not buy a shirt to wear, and for Aveeks went about with his coat buttoned around the neck to hide the naked fact that he had no shirt. About six weeks since ho got possession of about five dollars, and having no use for HO small an amount, thought ho would try his luck at faro, and he acted accordingly.  At the first sitting he won upward of «2,200, and this pve him a sart. He deposited all the money securely nnd retuhed to play the same bank another game, and at this sitting won about »700, when the bank refused to allow him to play longer, and closed up. lie tacklcd the tiger" in other dens, and again and again with the same remark*-able luck, until last Tuesday night, when,for the first time,tide of fortune changed, and he lost €600. At a subsequent encounter he pocketed over ?6,000. His aggregate winnings in the last six weeks amount to ?20,700 and on yesterday he announced his firm determination to renounce gambling forever, and proposes to make good use of the money.— He gave an unfortunate brother ?5,000, and has invested largely in real estste. Ohe good featnte of the afiiair is, that by his fd^tuh-ate streak of luck,several tigers have been crippled and one or two entirely closed. It might be added that he is no longer shirtless, and has plenjy of friends.  An Arab Dinner.  M 47.

In 1865 Mr. Woollen removed to Indianapolis and with Mr Webb and others established the Indiana Banking Company. Upon the 'expiration of the partnership between him and his associates in that firm on the first of the month, he and Mr. Webb opened the banking house whose name head^ this article.  In conducting the aflfairs of this house, Mr, Woollen ha» able assistance. Although Mr. Webb is not actively engaged in the .business of this house, yet he is fully cognizant of all that is done in it. His large business exncrieocc is dnwn upon in conducting its aflfairs, and in him Mr. Woollen has an able and safe counsellor.— Being a man v of large wealth which was acauired by his own energv and industry, he is careful that the investments of his house iUall bo of such a character as to bo alwavs available to the firm, shouM tney desire to realize upon them.  Occupyingconfidental positions in this bank, are Mr. Austin 11.  A correspondent of a London Journal having dined in the Arab custom at the Exhibition, makes a note in tbe English fashion "There were nine in the party As we were ushered into the dining apartment, a servant handed each ^uest a towl, and held a metallic basin, while another poured water over their hands.-— We were then seated on cushions, on the floor, around a circle metallic table, about eighteen inches high, with a rim around it. In front of each guest was a spoon, with a piece of bread. First came soup, of which each d'ii* ped. Then boiled fowl was placed in the centre of the table, and rapidly and gracefully carved by the governor with his fingers. He then, with his fingers» passed a piece to eachi The greatest couplimetit an Arab can pay, is to pass tbe fowl, after having first bit off a mouthful for himself. Then came eleven other dishes in rapid itfcdession, each served in the same manner--evcn dishes that were like our pies and puddings.— The cooking was all good and seasoning excellent. After wo arose from thir table, came fong pipes—chihoux^ and coffeo— preceding which, however, the ceremony of washing the bands was gone th^rough wi|h; nnd they  tMHtlM 8t>LMli Sqittlte.  The accident w«s a collision between the east bound express train, dne at Stv Louis al 6 A.U% in thé momingi and a west bound extra freight train that left this city during th^ ñight previoua,»' The express t/ain had five pass enger oars and a baggan car,and the freight train was a long heavy onoi drawn by a powerful iocorno-tive% Al the point of eoUisioii) taile ttkd a half east of Bureka, thefe is an embankment fifteen feet high where the road curves so sharply that two approaching train« caunQt see oach other until close togetherIt was at this periioue spot, of all others, t^t ihe.i^proacbjitg trains, eacn unconscious of each others presence alid each thundering forwat^ at a f apid rate of speed, were dooimèd to meet« There was but one instant's warning of the terrible danger to which the express train was rushing, too short to permit it to be averted. A boy standing beside the engineer of this train, Mr. Jackson, was firai to descry the smoke stack of the freiffht engine entering the curve at the east, just as the' express entered at the west; he pointed to it and directed the attention of Mr. Jackson to the danger at the same moment. Jackson instantly reversed hia engine, and gave the two sharp i^aick whistles that oall for the aoplication of the bribes. Tbe brakesmen promptly respond ded to the word of command, and  Ihis Sroke the force of the express train's speed somewhat, but not sufficiently. No application of human power could break up the heavy freight train and bring it to a halt under a half a mile.— The two engines rushed at each other like malign and enraged monsters, grappled with a tremen dious crash, reared from the track in a mortal wrestle and fell into helpless and disjointed fragments. The shock was terrible. The tender, baggage car and the two forward pdssenger cars of the express train on one side, and. the tender and several box cars on the other, rushed into the crash with their respective engines, leaving at that quiet, rural spot, on that placid May morning, a disordered and frightful ruin, spattered with the blood of forty human boitigs, entrapped and mu* tilated beneath its shapeless mass There was no warning to the passengers, and none of them had time to jump a&d escape from the fate that came so suddenly acd swiftly. One moment they were in the repose of imagined security; the next they were crushed to death, or maimed between an incumbent weight that held them asina vice. The two engines were driven with such force inte each other, that it was almost impossible, after the collision, to disiinguish the parts of one from the othor; the crushed cars Were jammed together, the cars being shivered into long slivers, and the seats wheels, trucks and irons blended into a indescribable heap that rolled off down the embankment. The three rear cars of the express train shared the concussion, but escaped the fate of the two forward ones. After collision they were found standing stiff and still on the track, with their breaks close up, flhow-ing that the breaksmen had done their duty well in responding to the engineer's whi itle before they leaped from the train.  The spectacle was one impossible to view without absolute horror. As a soldier passenger said, "I have been in battles but never saw so sickening scene," It was chaos and death combined. The engines both on the same side of the embankment, were but a, heap of batteved fragmeihts, wljUe ai^ottnd oa all sides was 1»e confusion of the ruin twice confounded. The baggage car and the one next to it were shivered as if by internal explosion, and the maze of broken timbers, iron rods, wheels, and other proportions of the car looked, likç the frabtic Work of some inferni^l awney.-^ It was a glorious May dáy, and mingling with the bloody fragments strewed around, were the delicate green blades and stems of spring verdure But for hours after the collision no opportunity was afforded to view the the ag-gregatei One's eyes were con* Btantly drawn to the various spots from whence cries proceeded— cries of agony from some wretch" ed victim—or else to the palid  fiU.tlWr£ti^ofwet>4t}fotiüä«d| italned with the lifb tide Mine dead person whose t^pdy was inTinble.

The mattresses and bedding of the sleeping cars diat stood nniniured on the track was brou^t and laid out on the groaiid for the wounded to rest «pop, and quilts, coverlets and lint for the dressing of wounds, were brought bv the residents. The collision of the two trains had been so violent that thefragments «f the wreck were jammed and wedged each inco a rigid, impact mass, with dead bodies and living victims crushed side by side and entangled in one indeserib^ able agony. The sufferers bore themselves with wonderful patience and fortitude» calling tlw attention of the workers to situ* ations, and directing the efforts for their relief, but ottering few complaints, and quieflknotiring their agony till their ■odies or limbs were disangaged from the remorseless beams, splinters and jagged rods that held them pin* ioned fast in the wreck. By eleven o'olock| seventeen dead bodies, all that Could be seen had been taken out, and all the living viciims extricated from the wreck; and while the work continued to go forward, the wounded were placed oti toattresses and beds and laid in rows'oi three each in the baggage car of the relief train, and sent to the city.  mm  TbMVluM lately bMttafTMtd*-. «lUMte  fAssmfim^yAMmn  Uàvrtr «Ibm tb« ellMüi gji^mmi  ciNpinu>8iu.mcHiirm  T09 CAN 8ATB MOMSt bybnr^afM;  Sesim»!*! PniiSt^Ni  AdDEllSON, INDi  tut«  An Old Seore Settled—i Dem-oeratie Debt Saved to the State. _  The people of Indiana arc fa milliar with the celebrated case of "The State versus Dillard Rickerts, et al.,'-' which involves the «183,000 abstracted from the Common School Fund, Under Dem ocratic auspices, and which it was greatly feared would never be recovered. It is a matter of aucprise and gratification to be able to announce that this debt has besn recovered by Republican officers, the Sítate and school children saved from loss, and an-» other item added to tbe long list of credits for the administration of the Republican party in Indiana.  In 1854, Mr. W. H. Talbott was President of the Board of Sinking Fund Commissioners, which then controlled the School Fund of the State. There existed in the city of New York the banking house of II. J. Lyons & Co., the '^Company'* being Mr. Dillard Rickets, a member of the Sinking Fund Board, and a Mr. Simmons, brother ill law of Lv-ons. Sometime in the fall of 1864 Mr. Rickets said to Mr, Talbott that he ^'would like to be compii mented with a small deposite, " acting upon the suggestion, de-poflits. wore made ot the school moneys, in Lyons & Oo.'s Bank, amounting to $133,281 14i Then succeed some góld speculations indulged in by certain Democrats of this City, who operated through Lyons & Co. as their brokers.— To make a long matter short, these Democratic speculations on the defeat of the Fedwal Government by tae Southern Rebellion, proved disastrous, and Lyons & Co. suspended) with this large amount of Indiana fünds held as indvidual deposite of Mr. Talbott The latter sucoeededin obtaining collaterals to the amount of 000, with securityj which were atterwards realized tipon during the inciimbeiicy of Auditor Mc-Carty, leaving, still unpaid about «80,0W. This sum the bank firm refused to aecount for until the gold gamblers made good their "shorts," Lyons & Co. alleging that the itnderstanding with Tal- his norce into a trot—to make up bott was, that the sinking fund for lost time.  I ■ I ^ ,^,11 III igpg  the School Fund intact, to the full ainount of the princple of the debt, with six per cent, intersst from the date of iU abstraction.  In aio^uneing to the people of Indiana tnis very^ pleMin/ fsct, two or thi^ prominent réMCtioüs seem proper to enforoe apon their attention.  JPint. On« hundred and thlHy three thousand dollars of the school moneys were tiUcen by a Democratic official^ and deposited in » baking hottse abottt whose financial seni^dness in those troublous timeS) to say the least there was » reasonable doubt. However honest the intention ef Mr. Talbotf in makii^ the deposite miffht have been/ it was considered by the bank as a margin upon which other Demo* c^ats ffambled in gold against the the lite of the government.  «%coiu2^The State was lostfr to the amount of ei^ty thousand dollars, the eollectvon of which Was devolved upon Republican officials, It is safe to assert that had the Aditor been a Democrat, and the administration a Demo-craticone, not a single dollar would have been returned to the State Treasury.  Third That no attempt .was made, disposition evinced^ by these debtors to the State to make good the loss, until, b/ the vigilance and tact of Republiean officials^ they were placed in a position where they were abs(du-tely compelled to make settle ment. A letter from Chicago recently published in the ^journal, gave our readers some id«a of the course pursued to effect this*  Fourth—This is the first time within our recollection, wWe the State has ever recovered the TuU amount of Sttch a debt, with legal rate of intercsti We belive that we are safe in asserting that it is absolutely the firet time in the history of the State.  /V/iA-vThrough the honesty ^nd faithfuH labor of Reblincan officials, the school children of Indi ana have been sated from tbe serious loss of the portion of the fund sacredly set apart for their education, the Common School Fund being now as if the abstraof tion had never been made, ll>e interest being paid just as though the money had been lying constantly in the vaults of theTreas ury.  These points are pjroper to make, in view of the adjustment of this celebrated account, in the face of the almost daily sermons the Sentinel aud other Democrat-c papers are preachjog, about the necessity of return to power of the Democratic party. We can not refrain from complimenting the State u^n the services Hon. JohnD. Bvans, the Auditor of {State. To his untiring in* dustry, faithful and persevering efforts, and more, than ordinary business tact and abilltv, is due the successful closing oi this extraordinary transaction. Tne voters of the State will remember him with CTatitude,a8 they will remember tney Republican party, for saving to them one hundred and thrity-tiir^e thousandidoUars of a Demoeratic gold gambling debt.
