The following further particulars of the terrible disaster which happened about two Miles East of South a Benil ind. On the Southern Michigan ii. Ii. On monday evening june 27th. We extract from a detailed account of the sad affair in the Chicago press and Tribune the second Day after on wednesday we published a telegraphic despatch which gave the names of Many of lh6 killed and wounded. The number of killed has since swollen to forty. Cause of the disaster tax it the a Jet where the disaster happened k Small Stream or Quot Branch is crossed by the Road on an 25 to 30 feet in height. Here for the passage of the water is a Good Stone Culvert which has Here before proved of sufficient capacity to carry through All that defended the Creek. In the afternoon and evening before the Accident that locality was visited by a rain storm of extraordinary severity. The water fell in torrents raising All the smaller streams after the lapse of a few Luurs to an unprecedented height. It is sup used that the Drift Wood carried Down by the Little the front part of it As Der polished by the Force of the concus Jan and most of the Csc in that end of the must Hare been instantly killed by the finish. The car fell in the water Fiose to of us who could har ried to get out. The lights were All extinguished and the nigh was Clou Yund dark. I got out of a wind own As the car Lay partially on its Side. My wife escaped she hardly knows How. The scene at the wreck was frightful. The engine by the giving away of the Culvert a a embankment plunged Down full thirty the two second class cars fell near it our car a Little to one Side it was a fearful pile. Is o one in the sleeping car was killed. I had several contusions about my face and body. My wife is Hurt about As much As i am. Who s to flame ? this is a question which ought not now to be discussed but with the information at hand we judge that this is one of the accidents in which the Tropic like fury of the storm is to be charged with the fatal . Doubtless the engineers of the company were careful in the exercise of their skill and constructed this part of the Road under the belief that they had guarded against accidents like this which has happened. But a Day or two will enable us to judge More correctly. On reporters Are on the ground and will make careful inquiry into the facts. Or. H. Rice of Laporte Indiana who was a passenger in the sleeping car of the ill fated train arrived yesterday at o clock at the Briggs House but left last evening for Janesville. The following is the statement of Ali. H. Nice i Asse Ger. He was in the sleeping car at the time of the Accident which occurred about Midnight. The first he knew of anything being the matter was when tiie water was Rushing Over the car. The lights were out and nothing but an occasional Flash of lightning was there to see by. He jumped from the cars but instead of Landing on Terra Jirma he leaped into the torrent but succeeded in making his Way to a clump of Bushes and got up the Bank he heard a Reat Deal of screaming while in the current and after Landing the cries of distress was awful. There being no lights every thing was confusion and survivors were Rushing wildly about the Banks of the Ravine in vain search for their missing friends. He says no one was killed in the sleeping car except one old gentleman who jumped out and was drowned in the current. Or. Kice says that Osgood the conductor seemed crazy he ran to South Bend and to Mishawaka and then returned a distance of eight Miles without his hat. He took charge of him and brought him to the City about 3 o clock 3 esterday. One woman who was on the train with her i d and invt children ran wildly about All night seeking her family but without until morning she then went to ii farm House a few Yar Solf where abroad. Toich Quot of which we Spiak.

The water thus dammed up attacked the embankment which is of Sandy Loam More Sand Lonmo and soon it and carried it Oll Quot or made it so soft and yielding that As soon As the weight of the train came ujan it gave a. Formerly Trussle work occupied the place of the Culvert and but it was removed for a More permanent san Atluru which jus supposed to be equal to the purpose for which it was made. The Culvert has been built several 3 , and up to this time no one doubted its suck Cliency. The up train which arrived Here so Ioctl after three o clock from the scene of the .

The roof much broken away by this time and i got through it to the top where i kept hold until i landed below. Then commenced climbing up and reached the Bank. 1 saw a number of of tigers clambering up out of the cars and there were several persons assisting the p sons who had been injured. I saw some labourers whom i ordered to Light Bon fires on the track up and Down the Road. Of the Speed of the train i took no particular notice. I do not think it was running at full Speed As we had just passed Over a big Bridge where we usually Slack up and had not got under full headway yet. Several of the in the car , but i cannot remember their names or the names of any others Althom High i knew some of their faces or. David in Union i think was in the car with me whether he escaped or not i cannot say.

There were fifteen or Twenty labourers got on the fire most of the Emigrant cars from Ainsworth station and at the n. A. Amp s. Crossing.

I wanted to reach the station at South Bend ind., and started As = i suppose for it but again i forded the Creek i had gone the wrong Way. I never saw any rain in this Ravine before it was what i Call a dry run and the Culvert was of Stone As Good As can be found upon any Road.

Boad As also a reporter from the press and Tribune establishment. The account from which these extracts Are taken contain statements from other , giving other details As seen by them but the main i its of the whole is we believe i contains in w hat is Here published. Altogether it is the most appalling disaster that has yet been recorded in the history of Railroad accidents in the country death of or. Baile or. Gamaliel Bailey. Editor and of the National Era died at sea on Board the Arago on the 5th inst. Or. B. Had been an invalid for some months and at the time of his death was on his Way to Europe in the Hope of regaining his health. He was born at mount Holley n. J., in 1806, studied Nedinne in Philadelphia and took his degree in 1828. After serving As ship s physician on a trip to China he commenced his career in journalism in Baltimore As the editor of the Meo Odist protestant. Subsequently in 1831, he removed to Cincinnati where he was appointed play Simian to the cholera Hospital during the prevalence of that epidemic. In 183g he joined the late James g. Birney in the publication of the philanthropist a Liberty party paper at Cincinnati. His met the usual Fate of All anti Sla very journals in those times his and printing office being several times destroyed by mobs. Or. Birney withdrew from the paper in 1836, and was supported by the Philant i rapist for the presidency in 1840, or. Bailey continued the Publica Tiosh of his paper till 1857, when it was merged in the National Jira an anti slavery paper published at Washington by the american and foreign anti slavery society of which dry was chosen editor. In 1848, he purchased the paper from the society and continued its publication on his own account. As an editor though by no Means violent he was i site to Plain spoken to suit the incr Idian of Washington and the mob decided to destroy Bis press. His office was besieged for two or three Days Blithe was not driven Hgt a his Post in 1856 or. Baile supported Fremont and ass sir renders a right which prance has fully conc coded Vilibert it. conscript released As a american citizen in 18531 the of Secretary Cass to tried surrender of the right of naturalized citizens returning to their native country becomes More clearly evident the More carefully the subject is investigated. This disgraceful attitude of our government seems unaccountable when the of dict is called to mind that the question has already been practically settled Between this country and France the american claim which we have emphatically asserted being fully recognized by the French government this May seem incredible to those who have so confidently taken up the defence of the Cass theory and have so unhesitatingly attributed All contrary opinions to a want of Quot intelligence or but As we have before endeavoured to offer conclusive reasons for denying the Justice of the administration doctrine on this subject we will now substantiate our position by showing that what we insist on has been conceded by a foreign government and that too in an extreme Case one of the strongest that could arise on the Side of Cassis. What the administration of or. Burn a a a of has thas tamely surrendered without even a word of objection was insisted on under the administration of or. Fillmore and triumphantly maintained. After this important Concession on the part of France or. Everett then Secretary of state very justly expressed the Hope that this would Quot be considered As a precedent Quot and that Quot hereafter naturalized citizens of the United states May visit France without danger of arrest for military had we not an imbecile administration such a conclusion might safely have been assumed by every naturalized citizen of French origin. As it is such people Are treated to an extraordinary specimen of diplomacy which has not left this even an open question As it was before the Days of Fillmore s presi id ency but he voluntarily offered to France the privilege of forcing naturalized citizens natives of that country into her military service when she had fairly renounced any such claim. We copy from the new York express a version of the Case we refer to Liat of a Man who had been actually Draton As a conscription. Francis Alsebert. A native of the department de Var in the South of France left there during the drawing of the conscription in 1839, and was actually drawn As a Cou script and was therefore an eco we de la conscription. He arrived at new Orleans made the usual application for citizenship and was duly naturalized in 184 5. He was successful in business in Louisiana and in july 1852, after an absence of nearly fourteen years he returned to his family in his Village and under the vigilant police in France he wins arrested in Twenty four hours after his return. He immediate wrote to or. Hodge the nearest american Consul. The latter that he might the better attend to the Case immediately requested that or. Allibert might be brought to , which re guest was promptly acceded to by the general in chief coi manding the military to was there brought before tribunal de Guerre As an ins on is and condemned. Or. Allibert was willing to pay four Thon a Sand francs for a Stibs dilute but or. Hodge would not allow him even to make the offer but obtained a rehearing of his Case appeared in Penson before the t pineal be d i Eric and pleaded the Case and alter two trials and a detention of six months he w is acknowledged an american citizen and orders came Quot from the minister of War at Paris directing his release. Or. Hod e gave him a passport which was l the police and with which he remained some weeks with his family travelled through France and embarked at Havre on his re tin to the United states. The correspondence on file in the department of slate gives the full details of the Case and or. Everett the Secretary of stale under or Filaoro on the 3d of March 1853, the last Day he was in office wrote letter to or. Hodge in which he says the department was gratified to learn tint m. Olibert whose and Imp is unit sent Asan ivs unit although a Natur sized citizen of the United states As mentioned in your communications has been released. This is undoubtedly due to the firm and decided stand maintained throughout the Long controversy in your official correspondence with the authorities on Iho subject. It is much to be desired that Liis Case May be considered As a precedent As you intimate and that hereafter naturalized citizens of the United states May visit France without danger of arrest for military service. In this event a hurtful source of irritation and unfriendly feeling will to Gazette. June 25 1859. We recommend the above to the careful consideration of our know nothing Cotom Horary the fort Wayne times and such of the democratic papers of this neighbourhood As endorse the doctrine that a naturalized citizen can be held for military service in the county from which he As seen by an american. The new Haven journal has a letter from a correspondent who has been lately travelling through ital in which he Speaks of that Beautiful country and its inhabitants As follows i have had a grand Opportunity to observe the italians during the six months spent in their states and As i wrote you last november Sardinia is worthy of All Praise. Why it is hot so much in the Mere fact that Victor Emanuel has even them a Constitution but because he is an enlightened Monarch has driven out the jesuits restricted the prerogatives of the priests and opened the door wide to protestants from his own funds them in building churches &c., thereby bringing into his kingdom some of the Best blood of Italy. In this lies the secret. The Bane of Italy is not secular or political oppression it is priestly get rid of the latter and the people would be prosperous the streets of villages and cities would not As now throng with beggars. Next to Sardinia Tuscany is prosperous it is rarely you will find a happier people. Next to her is Naples bad Eti Ough to be sure but infinitely better than the roman states. In those states the Romish Church works its most baneful influence the people Are without wealth or Comfort arid is sunk to its lowest ebb in All Italy.

Wise and his friends have commenced an energetic movement in his behalf for the presidency in 1860. The leading Northern connection of this or2a, recognizes Fernando Wpc of new York As its chief and sympathies strongly with the Friend of Hon. Daniel s. Dickinson of the same governor Wise has Many friends in pen Sylvania especially among the adopted citizens and to lose who Admire his vigorous contest against secret societies in 1854 and and 55. In the South his advocates Are busily engaged in corresponding with leading men throughout the country. It is not doubted How Ever that the Hunter and Letcher interest will strenuously oppose the pretensions of the governor but he is not a Man to be daunted. He has the reins in his own hands and will hold them with a hard and steady . Caring for no Man As a candidate for the presidency save As he is identified for or against principles and sharing All the admiration for the talents and character by the backers of governor wise�?1 should be wanting in Candor if i did not say that abundantly capable and patriotic As he is he has lately assumed a position in favor of the Protection of slavery in the territories and also in favor of free Trade would not make him so acceptable to the people of the free states As he would have been ten months ago. Time May induce him to modify or mollify his views on these doctrines and if so. I will not be astonished if his prove to be a most formidable one. The South will insist pretty steadily upon naming the next president. They allege that the North has had its full share and thai it is High time the sceptre should be passed to them As if indeed their skillful tacticians had not wielded it under almost every administration since the beginning of the government. The friends of gov. also insist if this is not done a separate Southern candidate will be run against any Northern Man at the named Charleston democratic National convention and that if this Man should be John Bell he will beat such a candidate very badly in the South. The elements Are curiously commingled All a round. The opposition part Quot is shaken to its Centre i know of no free state in which it May be said to be a solid Atory save , and even in your state the movement of the people s part though efficient in bringing together certain heretofore an Tago Silic ingredients is by no Means acceptable to the Radical republicans elsewhere who demand alike that the of position should be re baptised with their name and re established upon their principles. Contingencies May arise however which May change the whole of aspects but at the future is Mist enough. No one great name looms up above the other in the opposing ranks while in cur own the office holders have so managed to the party that the Only Man who can rally unite and inspire the democratic party has scarcely any Chance regarding the contest from the present Point of View of recognition by the Charleston next year will undoubtedly be a 3-ear of conventions of All sorts and the next Congress will inaugurate Many a movement Quot not dreamed of in our Many people suppose that the zouave so often mentioned in connection with the italian War As Well As with the late Campaign in the Crimea Are a corps of arabs. They Are Only frenchmen in Arab uniform and Are made up of men selected from the old soldiers of the Reidar army for their Fine form great strength and tried courage. A letter from Italy says of them the dress of the zouave is of the Arab pattern the Cap is a Loose Fig or Scull Cap of Felt with a Tassel a turban is worn Over this in full dress a cloth Vest and Loose jacket which leave the neck unencumbered by Collar Stock or Cravat cover the upper portion of his body and allow free movement of his arms Quot the Scarlet pants Are of a Loose Oriental pattern and Are tucked under garters like those of the foot rifles of the guard the overcoat is a cloak with a Hood the Chasseur Avear a similar the men say that this dress is the most convenient possible and prefer it to any other the zouave have certainly proved that they Are what their appearance would indicate the most reckless self reliant and Complete Iii entry that Europe can produce. With his Graceful dress soldierly bearing and vigilant attitude the zouave at an outpost is the Beau Ideal of a Soldier. J hey neglect no Opportunity of adding to their personal comforts if there is a Stream in the Vicinity the party marching on picket is sure to be amply provided with fishing rods amp a if anything is to be had. The zouave Are sure to obtain it. Their movements Are the most Light and Graceful i have Ever seen the stride is Long but the foot seems scarcely to touch the ground and the March is apparently made without Effort or fatigue. I have noticed that the zouave always manage to have a fowl or two boiling in the pot. They have obtained this accession to the meal either by what is termed hooking it or else the zouave who always Gallant has induced the farm Maiden who adores him to make a present to himself and comrades. One thing is certain where other troops would starve the zouave find plenty of . The dinner Over the spokesman of the party tells some interesting tale of what some former zouave did in Africa. He is listened to in solemn silence Only being interrupted from time to time with some such remark As c est Bien Ca a Viola a moment Leonzon arrange Les affairs and so on until the Quick rattle of the drum announces that the time has come for deity to be attended to. Gay and careless these troops Are above All Active and Brave they Are ready to undertake at any moment any desperate move and their reputation throughout Europe has become so generally known that it is an additional Force gained for american works a a armenian .
