A RAILROAD HORROR.
Disaster on the Hudson River Rail,
On Monday night 6th inst,, at about
10.20, an oil train ran into an express
train on Wapingeis bridge near New
Ilatuburg station. The bridge broke
down precipitating the locomotive of
the express train, and two passenger
cars into the stream beuealh. The
sleeping car 'contained eighteen per
sons, all of whom were burned to death
or drowned. The engineer and con
ductor of the sleeping car were among
the lost Nineteen bodies have been
recovered. We have not room to give
their names. It has been stated that
some of the corpses were robbed while
they were being removed.
Gen. Harrison Allen.
The York, Pa., Republican, in re
viewing the candidates for nomination
for the office of Auditor GeneJal, thus
speaks of Gen. Allen :
The name of Gen. Harrison Allen,
of Warrea, will be presented to the
Convention, which will meet nt liar
rislnrrg on the 10th of March, :is a
candidate for Auditor Geueral. Gen.
Allen is now serving his second year
in the Senate, to which place he was
elected in 1869. He is a staunch
republican, a man of irreproachable
character, popular not only in his own
district, but all over Western Penn
sylvania and will make a good stan
dard benrer to lead n tn viotnnr in
the Det campaign. Gen. Allen took
nn actWe and prominent part in the
war of the rebellion, and raised the
first company of troops recruited in
Warren County. He went out as a Cap
tain in the 10th Pennsylvania Re
serves, and wa soon promoted to
Major. After several mouths service
be was compelled to resign his position
in consequence of sickness and returned
home. After a severe illness of several
months, he recovered, and as soon as
be was able to travel he began raising
troops jerparatory to going out a
second time. He went out in 18G3 as
the Colonel of the 151st Pensylvania
volunteers, and served out the period
of his enlistment. Ho participated in
the battles of Drainsville and
Chancellorsville, in both of which
actions he distinguished himself by
bis barvery. Gen. Allen was elected
tj the House in 18G6, and returned in
m 1867, and was chosen Senator
l'rom the 28th Senatorial district
in 1869. His career, in the Legis
lature has been marked by consistency
fiJelity and uprightness, and his name
is uiisullied, and his Imuor unimpeach
ed. Such a record as he has made, is
alike creditable to himself and his con
st ituents, as it has been serviceable to
the State. As a legislator he has been
entirely above suspicion, and his rec
ord a consistent one throughout. Gen.
Allen isaself-mademan.and has made
his way to his present position by his
own unaided exertions. - He has been
remarkably successful in all his uuder
takings.and has never met with a single
defeat in any of his contests. Ho was
a supporter of our good President
Liucolo in 1860,and was a delegate to
the convention of 1868, which placed
in nomination Geu.Grant. All cir
cumstanceg considered, Gen. Allen is
inmost available caudiduto for Auditor

ville, when our reporter, accompanied
by a large delegation of citiz-uis, re
paired to the spot, where they learned
the harrowing fact as revealed by clots
of blood and shreds of flesh which
were strung along the track for twenty
rods, that the roport was more than
sustained. It. C. Beveredge, acting
Coroner, was summoned, and the pnr
ties present, after procuring a box,
proceeded to gather such portions of
the mangled flesh as could be distin
guished from clods of earth along the
track. Esq. Beveredge, having sum
moned a jury to view the remains, ad
journed until 9 o'clock this morning,
when the following facts were elicited :
The man's name was Geo. W. Ho vis.

small sura of money lived near the

The remains were brought to this
place last night on a hand car and
were viewed by a great number of our
citizens. They presented a most sick
euing sight. A heel was found in one
place, the heart in another ; a thumb
