Railroad 2 of clock yesterday morning the locomotive of the express freight train no. 198 met with an Accident which resulted in a severe scalding of the Engineer or. Kimes. The Accident occurred near Landis crossing three Miles below Lancaster and was caused by the a Wagon top being blown off which though not dangerously injuring any one detained the train sometime. The injuries of the Engineer though not dangerous Are of course very Sevare. He was immediately taken to a House in the neighbourhood and his wounds attended to. These accidents will occur even on the Best managed roads and it is fortunate the injury done is no or. Kimes we understand is doing Well. How do some people live a perhaps this aint any body s business but it is certainly astonishing How a class of beings can get along so swimmingly without any apparent business. To labor is the duty of All men but especially those who Are dependent upon their labor for their daily bread. Yet there Are some of this class the most indolent men living. Now the wealth and Prosperity of any Community depends upon the Industry of its inhabitants show us a locality where All ate producing something and we will show you a Thrifty Community the reverse where indolence prevails. In this country a Man must labor and nowhere does labor better. No Man need he Idle it is sheer nonsense to say there is nothing to do of course everybody cannot follow the most pleasant and lucrative pursuits but there is work to do. Will you do it ?

There is certainly some Art in jumping from a car when in motion. Most persons imagine that they must jump Forward in the direction the car is moving. It is a mistaken notion. The proper Way is to look Forward that is the Way the car a a going and step off backward and if the car is moving very rapidly give a Spring backward just As you let go the rail. In this Way by springing against or opposite the motion of the cat you overcome the impetus carrying you Forward and Are left standing perfectly still whereas when you jump with the car Yon Are plunged Forward by its motion. Fire near Camp 11 of clock this morning flames were discovered issuing from a Small outhouse belonging the the farm immediately above Camp Curtin. The alarm was quickly Given when a Large number of soldiers proceeded from the Camp to the scene of conflagration and after some difficulty succeeded in arresting the Progress of the fire before it had entirely consumed the Structure. The mansion House barn and other outbuildings on the farm being in a Cluster were for some time in imminent danger and would undoubtedly have been destroyed had it not been for the timely Aid rendered by the the fire is supposed to have originated by a heated stove pipe passing thought a Wood partition in the building.

As it was passing he made a stroke at it with Bis hand intending Only to frighten it but singularly enough he caught it fairly by the head.

Time for necessities of the War have created a demand for labor in nearly ail our manufactories and government establishments and skilled workmen have no difficulty at finding employment at fair this work however is not like the regular employments of Industry certain of its duration and depending upon the regular wants of the population of the country. It May last As Long As the War and it May cease in a few months ending just As suddenly As the demand for it has been created. It is the part of prudence then in those who Are now in a situation to save a portion of their wages to exercise the closest Economy so that any sudden cessation of employment will not leave them in the Middle of Winter without the Means of subsistence. It is usual in the time of Public distress to rely upon the merchants for contributions to help the unemployed to support themselves but it must be remembered that this resource is no longer available for the stoppage of the Ordinary channels of Trade has prostrated the merchants and they have now As much As they can attend to providing own wants. The Only sensible and sure plan is for each labourer Tobe provident now while he has employment husband every cent expend nothing in Idle pleasures or amusements use his wages to the Best advantage in providing for his present wants and Secare for Winter most of the articles he will need to make him and his family comfortable. A Little self denial and a lit tie Economy judiciously exercised at the present time May serve to keep want from the door before the Winter is i through.
