The following account of a most painful Accident on the Johnnia Ilai Road was left at our Oitice by a Friend Vulio it will be seen a is a witness of tie painful scene Wlinich he describes. Fai Iview sunday about 3 o clock. This afternoon As the train for Lancaster was approaching Fairview the Axel of the Forward car or cars next to the baggage broke which immediately precipitated the body of the car upon the railway the frag its of the Axel ripping up the Bottom of the Carin which was a or. Gibson of Philadelphia bound to Cincinnati with his wife and children. His wife and child fell through amp nearly the whole of the train passed Over her body. I cannot picture to you the heart rending scene that ensued when or. Gibson was called to the spot where his wife Lay mangled a Corpse with the child about eighteen months old by her Side covered with the blood of its dead Mother. The top or her head was Cut off and the brains Lay on both sides the rail the body feet arms Ana legs broken to atoms. Heavens what a sight the distracted Man tenderly dragged from the spot the. Remains of his Julia calling for her in frantic exclamations but she could not Only answer by an expiring look of agony. He next picked up his babe and believed it to be dead ran around among the crowd imploring assistance when it was impossible to Alt Ord him the last Consolation. The child Vas miraculously preserved. 1 was next called to witness another scene which beggars description. A Black Man who had vainly attempted to leap from the car when the Accident took place fell upon the ground and the car running Olf the track upon the Side he jumped the wheels passed Over his legs and Cut them Oisin the most to shocking manner grinding to e dirt and clothing into the mangled flesh. He Lay writhing in the most excruciating agony under the body of the cars until enough of assistance could he rendered to raise the car off him. He will not it is it believed survive. A gentleman in the Forward car had his left Arm broken and breast much injured but it is possible he will recover. The train was propelled at the rate of 15 to 18 Miles per hour at the time of the Accident and ran not More than the length of the train or 50 Yards Ere it brought up. 1 was with my family in the next car to the one which or. Gibson was in and the fragments Over which we passed Tore up the Bottom without injury to any of its it was a Miracle that we escaped one of our wheels was smokeless nothing but the naked rim left to give Assurance it Ever was a Railroad wheel. Even the rails for a considerable distance were torn from their fastenings and some broken. This seems to he one of those accidents against which it is difficult to guard unless by some new arrangement of the wheels and axes of the cars or perhaps by a thicker flooring to the cars. It is mentioned that the engine and Onei Rivas immediately dispatched for Lancaster City Peiyin Stihi ostensibly to oppose Theca lists but in reality to enable the Queen to Castor what he regards As the constitutional Yoke. Referring to the movements in Spain the Liverpool Remar is quot it is an Experiment of a limited monarchy with a House of representatives of the people neither encumbered or thwarted by an upper and irresponsible Branch of the legislature. At the present juncture when the Louse of lords in this country is in such deserved and bad odour the affairs of Spain will daily l e ome More and More interesting to the three Days in France certainly gave the impetus which carried the ret Brm of the House of commons and perhaps from Spain we shill derive the lessons Whitis will teach us How to Deal with a refractory House of the King More prudent than his minister contended tii atthe proclamation of the Constitution of Cadiz in the capital had entirely changed the aspect of affix Iris in the Peninsula Thill to put Down the Constitution by Force would be tantamount to dethroning the Queen that such a step would not be sanctioned by England and finally that having declined to interfere against the constitutionalists would not fail to endanger the internal Tranquility of France. Of return to the scenes childhood. Tell of the proud aspirations of ambition. Track the glorious achievements of conquerors. Mark the various projects of intellectual Power. Follow in their course the changes of alternate Hopes and fears in pleasure or business. Observe How much of Caprice or passion or dreary thought or sober opinion has predominated a then go bark to the scenes and Days of childhood and confess How much dearer is the recollection of Early affections than the present aspirations of ambition. Confess How much More Alec acting to the Best emotions Are the remembrances of the Early ii ours than the Novelty and changes and conflicts of natural life. In our Days of disappointment and adversity and multiplying vexations with what unutterable pleasure do we recur to the simple Joys of childhood with what tenacity do we cling to Days of innocence and feelings of purity pleasure comes to us with its Blandishments and the charms of Art minister to newly created wants but with our pleasures come pain and anxiety and with our new wants come new. Desires. Love and Friendship twine about the heart with renewed Force but the Best objects of our affections Wither and die and then we look Hack to Early Days and we ask for the unforgotten Days of childhood. Wearied with cares and disappointments in our expectations memory goes Back to other times when the heart knew not a painful emotion and in ii Ope to relieve some of the moments that come to us like the vision of a dream after years of absence we return to the scenes of Early life. We come Back to the place where our youth Vas passed and we look around for some living object on a which our earliest and purest affections rested. Affection Calls in vain. Nature is the same but All else has faded. In our first View of the once familiar scenes our hearts bound with the renovated elasticity of Youthful feeling. But soon How soon we Are admonished that the vigorous fires of youth Are nearly burned out How soon we feel that the companions of our youth have departed How soon we realize that the Gay dreams of life associated with the scenes around us have passed away and that nothing now remains to us of their former existence but the associations that bring the same Lovely picture of the future toothed Young bosoms of another generation. We mingle with the people of another age we Mark the Gay crowd around us but we look in Viii for the Gay and smiling files that once greeted us. W i walk the Halls of our former Home and the solitary Echo of our footstep is the Only sound to which we Claire Kindred. That is our own. Its Solita riness has companionship in our hearts. All else is the particular property of another age and exclaim How changed a How changed a we our position our Hopes our feelings our opinions our tastes our associations Haifa Century is passed and a whole came sweeping ration of men with All their projects of Ambi necked until it came in tion and Hopes of distinction and plans for earthly immortality have passed to their silent Home but not Beautiful nature. The t is unchanged and unchangeable and though age has passed upon the vigor of our limbs and time has diminished the buoyant emotions of the heart the Bright scenery around us is still presenting its renovated beauties. We have passed far Down on the Stream of time we have left the sparkling sources of the Waters that bore us Onward. We have receded on either hand from the embankments and the Grassy couches of its Borders we pass further Down the rapid Stream. The Waters have acquired breadth and depth and the verdant Banks no longer disclose the living charms and beauties of an Early voyage. The dim Mist of the Waters is about us and the sober Progress of our passage brings reality that the limits of human life approximate to the confines of eternity where the Stream of life will be a hered and lost. But the Progress of human life and pleasure is still for others. Our children they commence in the elastic Hopes of childhood and youth and innocent and anticipations live in their bosoms As once they lived in our own. We stand upon the spot which was the theatre of the Joys of youth. We Are there alone. No living thing claims Kindred to us and a faint and death like consciousness comes upon the heart that the Home of our Early Days is the Home of strangers and that every tie of Early attachment is severed. The breath of life is not mingled with the scene. But the Blue Arch of heaven the towering Hill once loved Stream with its gentle curves and jutting promontories a the Shore worn pebbles that our infant Arm would cast upon the in Rul led Waters calling into being the successively receding circles that gave Delight to our bosoms these Recal the most obliterated events of childhood when the voices Are hushed in unbroken silence More dear to us. But there is one object which above All others bears to the heart the most afflicting changes of the past and present. It is the connecting link Between the worthiest Joys of time drawn from filial and parental affections and the anticipated Delight of renovated love that religious f Lith presents in a higher state of being. The graveyard that sad chronicler of names to the sound of which the heart once leaped is the Only remembrance that tells of the connecting and undying Bond that unites the living with the hark the Bell tolls in measured time the hour of rest. Its voice Speaks of the evening hour when parental benedictions and childhood s gratitude marked a Happy family when the parting words of Good night quot told that icy were at peace with each other and the world.

We do not intend to add to the number of lumbering essays having made these remarks solely for the purpose of introducing the following paragraph from an essay of w. E. Channing As to what educating a Man implies. On this Point he says quot to educate a Man is to unfold his faculties to give him the free and full use of his Powers and especially his Best Powers. It is first to train the intellect to give him a love of truth and to instruct him in the processes by which it May be acquired. It is to train him to soundness of judgment to teach him to weigh evidence and to guard him against the common sources of error. It is to give him a thirst for knowledge Wlinich will keep his Lecul quot ties in action through life. It is to Aid him in the study of the outward world to initiate him extract from Wirt. Excessive wealth is neither glory nor Hap pit Ness. The cold wretch who thinks Only of himself who draws his head within its Shell and never puts it out but for the purpose of Lur Ere and ostentation who looks upon his fellow creatures not Only without sympathy but with arrogance and insolence is if they were made to be his vassals and hot was made to be their lord As if they were for no other purpose than to pamper Hii avarice or to contribute to his , such a Man May be Rich but Trust me that he can never be Happy nor Vir Tuo is nor great. There is in Fortune a Golden mean which is the appropriate Region of virtue and intelligence. Content with that and if the Horn of plenty overflow let its droppings of Honey in the wilderness be to cheer the Way worn Pilgrim. I wish you indeed to be distinguished but wealth is not essential to distinction. Look at the illustrious patriots and philanthropists Whin various Ages have blessed the world was it their wealth that made Thern great where was the wealth of Aristides of Socrates of Plato of Epaminondas of Fabricius of Cincinnatus and a countless Host upon the Rolls of Fame their wealth was in their mind and heart. These Are the treasures by which they have been immortalized and such alone Are treasures that Are Worth a serious struggle education of the present race of females is not ver favourable to Domestic happiness. For my own part Call education not that which smothers a woman with accomplishments but that which tends to consolidate a firm and regular system of charac term that which tends to form a Friend a companion and a wife. I Call education not that which is made up of the shreds and patches of useless arts but that which inculcates principles polishes taste regulates temper cultivates reason subdues the passions directs the feelings habituated to reflection trains to self denial and More especially that which refers All actions feelings sentiments tastes and passions to the love and fear of , Moore.
