Oriewz, September B.—The trial of
James: Whalen for the murder of -Hon.
T. D. McGee, commdnced this morning be
fore Chief Justice Richards. The court was
densely crowded, and there was much ex
_ cites in the city. James O'Reilly, of
the Queen's court, appeared for the crown,
and Messrs. J. H. - Cameron, Kenneth Mc-
Kenzie and M. C. Cameron for the defense,
assia'ed by. M. O. Farrell; the celebrate
criminal lawyer of Quebec. The Drisone
-appeared pale and morose, but answers
baldly to his name. After the jury had
been sworn, Mr. O'Reilly opened the case,
stating that the crown expected to prove
that the murder was planned ty a band of
conspirators in Montreal, and that prisoner,
was the instrument chosen to carry the
crime into'riffecst.• He spoke at considerable
length, detailing the facts of the case. The
defense made a° .3penisg speech. A large
number - of witnesses were examined for the
crown. The most important evidence given
is that of Lamx, who Swore he saw Wha
len shoot MliGee... The 'other evidence was
circumstantial, and differs in no material
degree from that elicited at the inquest
but is very damaging to Whalen. It is said
tke crown will put a woman in the boi to
swear that- Whalen told her he murdered
MeGee.-...The trial will last .four or five

Speech of A. A. Bradley. Colored, the Ex
pelted Senator.
aly,Telegraph to the Pittsburgh GaAette.l
- SAyhartrart, September 7.-A A. Bradley,
colored, whowas lately, expelled from the
Georgia Senate, spoke at a Republican
meeting this evening.- He 'said Clift and
other carpet baggers and Yankees are not
to be trusted; and advised the negroes itot
to trust the white people, especially the
Yankees, who were the meanest people on
earth. He doubted if these mulattoes ceu d
be trusted, as the white blood in their veins
might gain the mastery. He said the re
cent action. of the Georgia Legislature in
turning out negroes would increase the
majority for Grant. At first he thought
the negro members would draw zevolver
and assert' their rights in blood,-' which
would have benefitted Democrats. He
was glad they bad done otherwise.. He
thought the coming election, whichever
way, it went, would cause bloodshed. The
whole speech was of a rampant and con
tradictory character, many hearers being
doubtful which side the speaker supported.
He spoke nearly the whole evening. About
fora hundred persons were present. The
meeting passed off quietly. .

Over the Pittsburgh, Fort-Wayne and Chi
eago Railway.
ALLIANCE, OHIO, Sept, 7, 1868.
I left Pittsburgh' at 2p. m. to-day, and
arrived at this place for supper, but wishing
for the firsttime to travel all the length'of
the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and- Chicago
Railroad by daylight, I stopped off, intend
ing to take the express train which reaches
, .
this place a little before six in theimorning.
Passing rapidly down the picturesque
and Populous valley of the Ohio twenty
six miles, we reach Rochester, a busy and
growing town on the bank of the river,
just above the mouth of the Beaver river.
On the opposite side of the Beaver is
Bridgeport, and a short distance below
that, on a bluff of moderate elevation,
stands the old town or borough of Beaver,
the seat of justice for Beaver county. A
short distance up the Beaver, on the west
side, is Fallston, so called, I be
lieve, because the water which is drawn
from the river at the falls, some dis
tance above, is made to operate a good deal
of machinery of various kinds at that place.
Next above, on the east side, >is New
Brighton, a pretty town stretching about a
mile along the Beaver river. It is growing
fast. Just opposite the upper end of New
Brighton is still another town, known as
Old Brighton, but more generally called
Falls of Beaver. The situation is very
pretty, and so rapid is its growth that, al
though it is called Old Brighton, it looks
newer than any of the others. This con
geries of towns at and near the mouth of
the Beaver, are all within a radius of four
miles. They are the seat of considerable
manufacturinginduatry,and areimproving,
but not so rapidly as smile other towns
farther west.
Passing through Enon, near which we
enter the State of Ohio, we come to the
sober old town of Columbia. From the car
windows it has quite a pleasant appearance;
but the wave of progress does not seem to
have reached it. It is the county seat of
Columbiana county. The country between
the Beaver and Columbiana is somewhat
rough and stony, and much of the soil is
thin. It is, however, rich in coal and fire
clay, and, in some places, iron ore. We
passed one furnace, but I did not inquire.
to whom it belonged
' Salem. a large and thriving town towards
the western border of Columbiana county,
seemed to be the most enterprising and
thriving place between Pittsburgh and
Alliance, and withal a handsome town, the
dwellings good and the streets well shad
ed. Numerous manufacturing establish
ments are seen near the railroad, some of
them quite extensive. Agricultural imple
ments and machinery are constructed here
in large quantities, and steam engines and
other machinery are manufactured. Salem
seems to be a
_very progressive place both
in population and business: There are
some towns between that and this of which
I need not speak particularly.
In 1853 I was in Alliance •r the first
time. At that time the magnificent road
over, which I am journeying was not com
pleted, neither was the southern end of the
Pittsburgh and Cleveland road completed;
but the former was. finished some distance
bey and this place, and the latter from here
to 'Cleveland. These two great roads cross
each; ther at this point, and the very °xis
lence of this town was owing to that fact.
At that time there was an excellent eating.
house for passengers, well built and well
kept. Besides this there were perhaps not
a dozen other tenements, and - the whole
ratchet cleared ground was a wilderness
of stumps. • There were heavy fbrests
through this region in those days,
Now, fifteen years afterwards, I find a
town of five thousand inhabitants, and the
appearance on all sides of very considera
ble business, both mercantile and manu
facturing. Walking up the principalstreet
after supper, looking at the numerous fine
stores, &c., I came to a large and very
handsome three story, building of brick,
not quite finished. I inquired of somegen
tlemen standing opposite as to its object.
They informed me that it was as Opera
House. The lower story is divided into
store rooms; the second into offices and the
third is to be the hall—the opera house, and
really it will be a fine large hall.
I next visited the Alliance College, stand
ing on the summit ;of the highest ground
abbut the place, although it can hardly be
called a hill by a ,Pennsylvanian. The situ
ation is _beautiful, and commands a fine
view of the town and the surroundinglevel
country. The building is new—the institu
tion having only been founded last year—
of ample dimensions, and three stories
high. There are about one hundred stu
dents of both sexes, who are commingled
in the classes, and all branches pertaining
to a thorough education are taught. I had
not time to call upon any of the faculty,
nor was it a proper time of day to calkbut
I had a little talk with a gentleman I met
on 'the gro s und. Everything about it gave
the impression that It is a good institution.
The next and last place I visited was the
rolling mill, 't wiled by a joint stock com
pany. All the principal operators are
stook holders,. Everything was at rest
when I called,' except a few puddling fur
naces, for it was about sun set. I accosted
one of the proprietors—l think be was the
head puddler=-who showed me all around,
and gave mo all the information I wanted.
The works are exclusively devoted to the
manufacture of rails, of which they turn
out, from forty .to , forty-five tons , a day.
About two-thirds of the stock they •use is
°unposed of old, worn-out rail-, and one
third-off• which, they make the heads—
Is now iron of theirOwri mantractule. I ex
amined their finished*ralls. They arch.=
27-to' 85 feet in length, very straight and
perfect,' and the'flanges' free from cracks.
They leaked like'good rails, -and the gen
thumark Who showed me re•nnd said they
were unable to keep pace with theirorders.

[The following letter—through design,
accident, or blunder, we cannot tell which
—came into our hands instead of going into
the mail bags en route for Kildowery, which
we learn from the Gazetteer is a parish about
twenty-five miles from Cork, and in the
county of that name. 'The seal was broken
before reaching nil ' and it took the com
bined ingenuity of the whole corps of edi
tors, the foreman and three of the composi
tors having the largest experience in setting
"blind copy," to decipher the letter and Its
superscription. Not feeling certain as to
the intention of the writer or his messenger
in letting the epidtle stray . into our hinds,
we have-taken the liberty of putting it into
type, feeling that our labors in deciphering
the hieroglyphics of Mr. O'Flaherty have
given us some rights as a discoverer.. At
the same time, that no harm may be done by
this course, we shall send a printed copy to
Mr. McGinnis, in Kildowery, who will, we
venture toliope, find greater satisfaction in ,
reading his cousin's letter in good type than
in the original hen tracks.]

Tear Cousin,
GIISTAi7 FREYTAG, the author of "Debit
and Credit." ' lives in a small two-story
house at Gotha. You can often see him
promenading there in the afternoon with - a
- handsome little boy, the orphanson of his
sister, whom he educates. He looks like
an aristocrat, but has very little sympathy
with the aspirations of the German nobility.
Still he is no decided democrat. His par
liamentary career .has disgusted him. He
will hardly be agidn a candidate fora seat in
the North' German Parliament Duke
Ernst, of Saxe•Coburg, is his intimate
frierid. The two men may often be seen to
gether, and when they promenade in the
park, Freytag looks much, more dignified ,
than the sovereign Prince - who walks by
his side.
ADELAIDE RIBTODI says in a letter, pub
`Baked in a Turin newspaper, that nothing
surprised -her so much as the symptoms , of
considerable wealth which she found in the -
United States in nearly all small cities,• and
frequently even in villages. “But for the
climate,"she says at the , close of the letter,
"North America would be the finest CoDU

letter that she _bad at first looked forward
with considerable anxiety to the manner in. •
