WASHINGTON, January 13, 1869.—The Sen
ate was, till a late hour this aftemooni
still engaged on the claim of Miss Sue Murphye
for compensation for her property destroyed by
order of Gen. Sherman, and, from- present ap
pearances, it looks as if the debate might be pro
longed till the 4th of March- next, being post
poned from time to time, to take 'up the appro.-
priation bills and other matters which
must be attended to. There la no "pre
vious question" in the Senate, to stop debate,
.o the Senators can indulge In long speeches to
their heart's content. The anxious expectants
ter confirmation for various positions, whose
names have been alumberieg in committees for
ateks east, have been flitting around the Senate
lobbies for the last few days , looking disconsolate
and heart-broken. "Wi ll the Senate hold an
Executive session to-day?" is the anxious inquiry
put to nearly every Senator who ventures out
emu the chamber into the reception-rooms or
•he lobbies. to take a lunch or "a hasty plate of
-4 , up." ala General Scott. The Inquirers genet
...l,y look woe-begonerwhen they receive a neg a
we reply, with the additional assurance that it
to utterly impossible to predict when another
Executive session will be held. Indeed,
lee Senate just now seems in no mood
ter "executive business," and theprobability is
hat a great portion of the nominations now
pending before the body will go over till after
Match 4th, to allow General Grant to have a
voice in the nominations. This seems to be the
unveiling impression at this writing.
I never saw so many female "lobbyists" as are
'ally in attendance in the marble room of the
senate, waiting for "a few minutes' Interview"
with Senators, and sometimes as many as half a
dozen Senators are called out of the chamber at
the same time to receive the visite and
hates to the stories of the fair clatters.
fhe magnificent dresses of these ladies chat
n age admiration. Almost any day a
score of them may be seen reclining
languidly on the luxurious sofas and elegant re
-1.1 piton chairs, waiting to see the grave and dig
nified Senators; and did we not know they were
Lean beyond such influences, we would suppose
bat the fair lobbyists arrayed themselves in their
most costly dresses, to add to 'their charms and
operate upon the susceptibilities of the venerable
eons. Nearly all these women are seeking
flees, for themselves or their friends, male and
temale, and not a few ate regularly enlisted to
in securing the confirmation of some person,
either for trieealehip, or "A consideration. '
Whatever their business may be, one thing is
ertain, that there has never been witnessed such
a display of femininity, bent on "public business"
as the lobbies and reception rooms of the Senate
have exhibited daring the, present week. The Same
faces may be seen day after day and week after
week, as if Intent on succeeding through , perse
verance; and it really deed seam as It many do
•ticceed through these. means, as it Is a difficult
waiter for even a Senator to give , an emphatic
"No 1" to a request for "a little favor," mace by a
beautiful, fascinating and accomplished woman.
The moet extensive
_preparations aro being
made for the grand inauguration ball on the 4th
of March next, which will take place in the
Rotunda cd. the Capitol, and -will be ono of
me most brilliant affairs ever witnessed
in Washington city. - .lt isgxpected that people
will be present from the adjoining and distant
States, andordere are already pouring in upon
Ito committee for tickets. The Democrats are
ming 'to "kick up arrow" among the Republi
cans by finding Wilt with, the Committee of Ar
rangements as being "self-cOnatituted,7 &0.,
and that the committee. want to -take Grant in
charge, to the exclosion - ,of "the people," and
more of the eame nonsense. No ono except title
elms ofpeople tba'dis fanit, as .the „committee are
kontleinen of the highest respectability and stand
ing, and are doing all in their poiver to make the
denionstiation a grand success, and will succeed,'
notwithstanding the "growlers.",. Some of the
" priori quid " are complaining 'about Congress
turning the Rotunda.into 'dancing-hall, bat, as
Congress is equally as liberal with .nreaehers and
uniperauce people, by grautingits halls for their
meetings, surely no one has a right to Co(uplrin

little privileges too.

Pa-rticulars by Mail
The Pittsburgh Gazette of yesterday gives the
following :particulars of an accident of which we
bad a bare announcement by telegraph: ,; .
Tuesday morning, while Plueburgh
yet, buried in repose, and no sound of life' went
op through the thick canopy of fog which over
hung it, nor feet, save those of the, solitary
watchman patrolling his beat, disarranged the
deep, soft carpet of snow which covered Its
thoroughfares, a train hurried out of the Union
depot, and sped at_usual rate over the "Pan Ran
dleniorid. Twenty minutes later there was a
terrible'eccitlent at Cork's Run, a station on that
line,'only a few , miles distant from the city. A.
rail had been moved from its proper position, the
engine and four care whirled over the dangerous
point in safety; but the fifth and laid car was de
tached, and, with its living freight, swinging
down an ctobankment some eighty feet high,
rolled over and over, until, with tearful crash, it
atracklbe earth below, and was changed in an
instant to a chaotic mass of broken timbers.
From eleven to fifteen passengers were In the
ill-fated car, and of these, three were found dead
when the debris was cleared away. Three or four
°there were more or lees seriously Injured, and
two, who are said to have been on board, have
since been missing. Below we give a full account
of the sad affair, from particulars gathered by our
feporter on the ground, a few hours after the
The regular mail train, known as No. 6, by the
officers of the company, left the Union depot at
three o'clock, on its way to Cincinnati. It was
made up of a baggage car, an express ear, two
passenger care and a sleeping-coact'. In the latter
it is esud there were from eleven to fifteen per
sons. though the General Superintendent, Mr.
Dorrington, states that be coald only learn of
seven—two gentlemen from Springfield. Ohio, a
drover from Kentucky, a student from York, in
tbis"State, a clergyman from Clearfield, and two
other gentlemen of whose vocations or places of
residence, he knew nothing. One of those who
occupied a berth in the car claims there were at
least twelve on board beside himself, and among
them two ladies. Thus far, however, no traces
hate been found of the latter and the report Is
supposed to be erroneous. The conductor of
the train wail John Blair; the name of the engi
ot er we were unable to obtain.
- Nothing unusual occurred until a point was
reached about half a mile from Cork's run, where
a flagman on the road signalled and informed the
conductor that a land slide had occurred a few
feet further on. The earth, he stated, covered
the main track, and obstructed it so that it would
be impoStible to pass over it. The train was now.
sisitthed in on a side track, and anticipating no
further delay, proceeded at the ordinary speed,
and such of those In the, sleeping-coach as had
been - aroused by the halt, resumed their berths
and again sought refreshing slumber, ignorant of
the fatal trap which awaited them a few perches
There are few more picturesque spots along
the whole line than' that where the fearful acci
dent occurred; and on Tuesday morning it must
have presented a peculiarly striking appearance
as it - lay enveloped in its soft, white shroud of
snow. The-little stream known as Cork's run
just bete rows into, sad is lost 112, the now
swollen , tind Inuddy waters of the Ohio. Its
coarse lies et the bottom of a ravine, from which
t e trotind.rises rather abruptly, on each aide,
chaps a 'hundred feet or more, covered with
•Ines and
trees, which vary and beautify
t view. The railroad crosses this ravine at the
he ght of from seventy to eighty feet. It was
formerly supported by trestle-work, but lately
the place has been filled up, and it now rests on
what is supposed to be a good and reliable
When the train arrived at this embankment, no
fear was entertained by any of the officers on
beard. The locomotive passed over as usual, the
express, baggage and passenger cars tollowed.
But now there is a sudden snap, a jolting of the
forward portion of the train, a great rumbling
noise in the rear—a few momeritamore, a fearful
crash down below,and then the grim truth bursts
on the engineer, who at once stopped the engine,
and gave the saved passengers an opportunity to
Fee the catastrophe for themselves. The sleeping
coach had been detached and lay in the ravine, a
wreck, already on fire.
The passengers who escaped unhurt descended
at men to the run to ascertain bow affairs stood.
They found some of the inmates of the car alroaay
moving, others lying around the wreck wounded
and groaning, and two they discovered dead,
though not very badly mutilated. Having extri
cated the bodies of the latter from where they
were caught, they turned their attention to those
who were hurt and found that they suffered chiefly
from fright, save one gentleman, who was taken
insensible from the debris, and who it was sup
posed would scarcely survive. Some hours subse
quently the body of a third man was found in the
water, into which It had fallen and lain unper

According to - Senor Azcarate, the following is
General Serrano's programme for governing the
Spanish Antilles:
1. The African slave trade to be declared piracy.
2. The chlldren born of slave mothers to be de
clared free. - •
3. Suppression of military government in , all
grades inferior to the superior civil grade, ana al
lowing that elevated post to be filled by civilians.
4. Governors of provinces to be named or , pro
posed by the civil autierier, so that such offices
may be tilled by persons of native birth.
5. The establishment of - a Junta, of Insular
Assembly, with Me right to initiate measures of
government and local adailnistration, -subject to
the approbation of the Governor. •
6. Freedom of the press, and free corporations
for municipalities and provinces, entrusting the
government of towns to alcaldes or their ilea
teepnts, with tho suppression of the military
lieutenant-governors and district captains.
7. Trade between Cuba and the - Peninklito be
placed on the footing of coasting trade.
8. Division of the financial budget,and various
other important reforms.
By the immediateestablishment of_ these re
forms Mr. Azcarate believes that arms will be laid
down by the 100.000 'insurgents in the island.
Then, he adds General Serrano can add to the
title of the "Liberator of Spain" the no less glo
rious title of the pacificator of Cabs.
—The Parepa-Rosa Concert was thrown topsy
tur%ey last night, by the driver of a baggage
wagon. Ferranti's trunk did not arrive in time,
and although ho had-his lungs with him, he hesi
tated to venture to sing without his swallow
tailed coat. Be the programme was broken up;
and although four-fifths of the audience were not
much thewper, a number of different pieces
w ere substituted for thosee which were announced.
Mr. BropkbOuee Bowldr, a One, clear robust
tenor, with much facility and expression, began
with the ballad "Bewhre." Mr. J. rattison, a
New York pianist, and a stranger in this city,
next gave a composition of his own, which was
pretty, but not remarktdale for originality. -Mr.
Paulson's execution is Very brilliant, bathe lacks
expression. Illifineore piece, Prudent's/no/oiler,
was more satisfatory than the first, but there
was the same lacof warmth in the coloring.
Mr. Pattleon is more a mechanical, player than a
peat artist. But he is a very young man; and
may do betterjhings after while.,
Big. Ferranti came out next in a sack coat, his
good ,clothes having not yet arrived. Be aban
oned the programme and sang the Lar:o at
fuetotum from the Barber of Seville with unusual
spirit.: He his a -very good baritone voice; and
a manner that finds immediate favor with the au
Mad. Parepa-Rosa sang "Nie Nachte mix der
&Mummer" from Der FreNschutz, with her old
srace, and then gave the ballad "Forget Me Not"
as an encore. Her voice is as fresh and beauti
ful as ever, and the warmth of her reception last'
night must have convinced her that she has not
lost any of her popularity with our people.
Mr. Bowler forsook the programme again to
sing the Haritana air."l-et me like a soldier tall."
Mr. Levy, the famous cornetplayer, came next,
and; likewise Ignoring the programme, played
variations of a ballad air, "The Exile's Lament."
As a first encore he gave the "Carnival of Venice;"
as the second, very intricate .variations of
"Yankee Doodle." Mr. Levy fulfils, hi every
respect, the high promise of the manager in his
behalf. Re plays with wide expression; and hie
it cation is simply wonderful. His manlpula
(ion of the instrument in rapid and difficult pats
sages last evening was surpassingly graceful.
Fie is a sufficient attraction without any of his
The second division of the programme was ad
hered to more closely. Bowler and Ferranti
sung a duet. Ur. Yattison played a selection
from Liszt, admirably; Madame Parepamßosa sang
Slillard's song, "Waiting," and as encores, a little
Irish ballad, and "Conlin' thro' the rye." Signor
Ft rranti gave the anti-woman song, "Femmine,
Femmine !" Mr. Levy flourished through a pol
ka of his own composition, and the entertain-
Inuit concluded with a laughing trio, by Tantal.
