The wreck of the trains which were in coUisiof Sundav night lay about the Peun.ylvama railroad .tracks, near tha coal cmice, beyond the Hackensftfk river bridge, all riay. Scarcely hud the message announcing ths diaastar Jerse> City when train wnqdispatched to thescauo of the accident. The relief U-ain was with dernclfs, ropes ini appliances to lift the engines and a crew of fifty skilleJ track repairers were on board. At the scene of tha wreck thore were willing people doing all that they could to alleviate the sufferings of the in- jured and trying to extj icate tho dsad. AI the courageous bnnd removed the suf- ferers one by ono they were laid upon the floor of one of the relief cars. Many tne victims were unconscious, but several were in Ml possession of their faculties. Tho poor woman whose two bleeding were being dressed by a train hand smiled peacefully and said with parfect composure: "I don't mind losing my legs if I can only live, f Oi I have a little baby." The saddest perhaps was when one by one the rigid forms of the dead were silently laid by themselves. No word ot was made as they were set in the bag- gage car laid oviftliBin. It was not until the early sun had passed that attention was directed to a red flannel shirt beneath the cjlinder of the engine Under this the b dy of a 7-yeai-old boy lay, "with the boilm? water diippmg on it Hit, scaldo-1 flesh so hot that in remov- ing ttK unfortuuaw lad to a stretcher sev- er ,il iinnds vi ere burned.

Yesterday was collection day and he started out with the wagon, taking the collection book with him. No suspicion was entertained that anything was wrong until a messenger came to the bakery and gave the information that the horse and wagon was at the Clinton street depot. It was ascertained there that he drove up to the depot about two o'clock in the after- noon, jumped out of the wagon, did not tie the horse, but ran down the walk to the gate and informed the gate keeper that he wanted to see a friend on the platfoini. Two trains were stand- ing there, one for New York, the other for Philadelphia, and it is not known which one he took. In the wagon was found a large blank book with entries on only two pages. On one page was a re- ceipt for rent paid by 8. C. Fuller to J. B. Richardson. The other page contained a list of ai tides purchased by Mr. Fuller from Grocer Holcombe. Mrs. Wheeling never saw the book before The collecting book was taken by K nowles. It has not yet been ascei tained how much was taken by Knowlea, but it is estimated between and Knowles a wife, and three children, who are in desti- tute circumstances, as he did not leave a oi money with them, neither was any- thing in the house iu the way of eat- ables.

THE TIMES Learnt From Drummers That advices from the South and West tend to show a constantly increasing pot- tery trade in decorated and C. C. ware. That every commercial man to catch the eye of the New England maiden and to appeal to the pocket-book of her "pa" must smoke good cigars, part his hair in the middle, cultivate culture, have plenty of money and a Boston accent and wear a very pronounced plaid suit with blue necktie, a tall felt hat and square toed black as Night's Plutonian shore, and that "trade" will not prosper unless he does so.
