IN the North American Review for May,
ex-Judge JEnr.. S. BLACK continues the
very, interesting series of papers on the
Third Term ; Question begun in the Feb
ruary number. His article is entitled
"Gen. GRANT and Strong Government,"
and its purpose is to show, first, that the
limitation of tenure of office in the Presi
dency to two , terms is a fundamental prin
ciple of out -republican form of govern-
Ment ; andOtecondly, that not only does
disregard ofl that principle threaten the
permanepei tot' republican institutions,
but that Onalir's third, candidacy is ac
tually a plot ifs revolutionize the republic
and introduce 'monarchy. Mr. LESLIE
Sisrazri writes of " The Religion of all
Sensible . Men, " and speculates on the
prospect of tat religion displacing the
present creeds .of the multitude. The
creed of the intake, he says, must be
capattle of assimilating modern scientific
theories.' GEORGE TICKNOR, CURTIS c,on

Company will present the amusing comedy
of "Our Candidate," at Mercur Hall,
this, Thursday. evening. Of this Com.
pany the Press everywhere have nothing
but praise. Among the hundreds of no
tices coming under our observation- we
select the following :
"The first appearance of RICHMOND &
VON BOYLE'S Comedy Company in this
city, in their comedy "Our Candidate"
-at the. Standard Theatre, last night, was
greeted by a large audience, who enjoyed
the jokes and comic action of the piece;
-The 'acting and mounting of the piece,
are of the best.—New York World, Jana.-
- "It has been conceded by- Manager
HENDERSON that the past week at the
Standard, Theatre, with Ricumosn and
VON BOYLE, in their screaming vomedy of
"Our' Candidate," has proved the most
profitable of the entire season. This is
gratifying, because, although RICHMOND
and Vos Boum are magnificent character
artists, the merits of.' the comedy as a
stage composition can Only be measured
by the enjoyment afforded, and of which
these two comedians. are the undisputed
vehicles, if not the absolute creators.
"Our Candidate" is animated In action,
pure in text, and lirims from beginning to
end with; foe boisterous hilarity. - Current
audiences rarely. go beneath the surface
of a comedy, hence. they have derived a
genuine banquet of mirth.—Neut York

• Last evening at the depot, says the El
mira Gazette of Friday last, on Erie ex
press train No. 1, going East, was a gen
tuleman who met with quite a misfor
tune. He had come up from -Yennsylva-'
nia to take the Western train. 'While
going about his business he was jostled
in the crowd iu by three men,, and when
he came•to examine himself he found his
pockets had been picked of six or seven
hundred dollars. He 'complained of his
loss to Captain HILL, but it Was too late.
Neither the men nor the' money could be
FIRE IN TROY.
About twelve o'clock Tuesday „night 1
bright light in the Southern part of our
village, and the vigorous ru)tes of the fire
bell, called out our Mike* !and Oscalu
wa in particular. After a bard run, it
was found that ham ofdsatics MAT4It
was on fire, and when the engine arrived,
was no nearly•consumed as to -make any
help needless. A wagon, churn -powar,•
etc., were burtml, but stune calves were
got out. It is supposed the fire • was in
cendiary in its origin.— Troy lissefta. •

to give, the signal forripplying the brakes
when' the explottion took place, and his
body was hurled through the enginetab•
roof some thirty feet into the air ,
lifeless remains fell to the:ground about
one hundred and eighty feet distant from
the engine. The .fireman, who was at
the moment applying the brake of the
tank-or tender, was blown from where be
stood. onto the second gondolia from the
engine, a distance of about sixty feet.
Falling into the ashes with which it was
loaded, undoubtedly prevented his being
killed outright. JAMES SHEAR, a writ'
I hand, received several quite severe brnis
es by being thrown front the cars.,The
engine was thrown from the trac and
tamed completely around, the forward end
being next to the task. It is complete
wreck, the fire-box and whole rear end
boing blown almost_ to- shreds. The
smoke-stack was blown off, and the whole
engine shattered, showing the terrific
force of the escaping steam.
Ai soon as possible, persons who were
on the train and workmen near where the
accident occurred, hastened to the assist-
ancei of the injured men. On arriving
when) Mrf LESLIE'S ' body laid it was
dienoveredthat life was already extinct.
An examination of his remains showed
that one of his legs was broken, one
shoulder dislocated, andt the frontal bone
ever the left eye had been driven through
!the skull into the braid, a wound which 1
would - canoe almost instant death; and.,l
which it is supposed Was inflicted by a
flying bolt or other piece of iron.
Mr. MASON, the fireman, was taken up
from the car where he bad fallen, and
conveyed to the house of, Dr. et.sooerr,
where he yet remains,. His injuries so
far as known, are a broken arm, several 1
bruises about the breast and body,' and
his bead and face badly scalded.
NeWs of the accident was at once tele
graphed to Sayre, and Superintendent
PACKER and Assistant GOODMAN 'imme
diately started for the scene, telegraphing
physicians here to be at the upper depot
to take the special car that conveyed
them, and Drs. WoonnußN and JotnisoN
accompanied them. Arriving at the scene
of the accident everything that could be 1 ,
was done for the injured men • still alive,
and tender hands fitted the corpse of Mr.
LESLIE for its conveyance to his late
home in this place, where the remains
were brought in the afternoon.
Coroner HOMET was promptly on the
ground, and summoned a jury whd, after
holding an inquest over the remains of
'Mr. LESLIE, rendered a verdict in accord
ance with the facts as above given.
Mr. LESLIE bad been a resident of this
place for several years past, and was
highly esteemed by a large circle of
friends and acquaintances. Ile was about
forty-five years of age, and leaves a wile
and four children to mourn the loss• of
one of the most loving of husbands and
kindest of fathers. He was a member of
Watkins Post, H. A. R., of this place,
a%d a delegation of the Comrades of the
Post ap..ompanied his remains to near

Thursday, by officer' , MOREHOUSE for be

the lock-up, built a fresh coal fire turned;
on the drafts and left him. Ab out one
o'clock his mother visited the lack-up and
found him lying on the floor suffocated
from the heat and gas escaping from the
stove. Dr. H. J. SMITH was called, and
after laboring with him all the afternoon,
succeeded in bringing him to life again. .
When found his heart had stopped beat

appearance of a dead man, and the doctor
had but little hopes of resucitating him at
first, but by Patietit c, ' labor succeeded in
bringing him to life, and 'has him so he
can sit up now and is iu a fair way to re

denunciation of such a careless act.—Et
