Tue Rim still continues at a fair stage of

ready to be floated to market. Many of the

advance in prices.

INPUT MORTALITY. —A writer for one of our
popular medical Journals, In a lengthy and in
teresting article under the caption of "the die
eases we die of," estimates that from one
fourth to one-half of all the children born into
the world—the proportion ranging according to
locality and circumstances—die in infancy.
There is too much truth in the remark. Our
cemeteries are full of little grave stones—our
families are all desolated by the destroying an
gel almost as soon as they begin to exist :
"There is no hearth, however watched and tended,
But one dead lamb le there ;
There Is no circle howeroer defended,
But has one vacant chair.
The air le full of farewella for the
And mourning, for the deed
The bean of Rachel, for her children crying,
Will not he comfortod,,,
The chief causes of infant mortality are he
reditary diseases, bad air, improper food and
uncleanliness. Multitudes of children, born in
the lower walks of life, never breathe a morsel
of pure air from the moment they enter the
world until they leave it. Crowded in unwhole
some tenement houses, nestling in hovels,
where swarm the children of poverty and mis
fortune, sweltering in rooms abutting upon al
leys reeking with filth—or cowering in garrets
fetid with foul and close air, and almost desti
tute of light—is it any wonder that these poor
victims should die almost as soon as they were
born? They breathe pestilence in the cradle—
too often aggravated by nursing diseases, and
feeding upon opium or other poisons, ignorant
ly dispensed to alleviate their Infantile suffer
ings. When a human could finds itself in such
conditions as these, is it any wonder that it
should be in haste to die out of them ?
But, even among the children of more for
tunate parents, who are well bred and well
born, after the standard accounted respectable
and intelligent, how vast is the BUM of infant
mortality l How many pale-faced puny little
wrestlers with disease, hereditary or superin
duced, do we not daily behold. The laws of
life are daily systematically violated by thou
sand of parents, out of ignorance, and habits
are formed and encouraged which are directly
adapted to carry the child to an early grave.—
Unlimited indulgence of appetite at all hours,
unwholesome sweetmeats, constant confine
ment within doors, deficient clothing during
sudden changes, imperfect ablutions, mistaken
and cruel overdosing for trifling complaints—
all these aro among the active causes of disease.
Home people's children are always ailing, and
always being dosed ; and with all the debt of
gratitude we owe to the medical profession for
succor in the more critical circumstances of
disease, it is an undisputable fact that the over
medication of children, which is being but
gradually reform"ol, is a fearful account to be
divided between their anxious Embus and the
laoa BBIDGII.--4110 new iron bridge over the
canal at Kiditietown, recently completed, is
said to be one of the most handsome and sub
stantial structures! of ,the kind in the country.

Tug Fru HAEBIIIitrAG BAUI3)IIVIXO.—We learn
some further interesting details respecting the
accident on the Pennsylvania Railroad, noticed
in yesterday's TZLRORAPU. The train on which
the affair occnred left Pittsburg at 085 on
Wednesday evening, and made its usual time
to Greensburg, and thence up the valley of the
Conemaugh and through the wild mountain
regions of Cambria to the Summit. From
thence the iron horse dragged its freight down
the snowy mountain sides, and arrived safely
at Huntingdon. The baggage and mail car on
this train were all in one,the car having a parti
tion separating the compartments. The baggage
master was Mr. Cresson, and as there is no
route agent of the Post-office, he had charge of
both the mail and the baggage throughout the
trip. We understand that there were in all
thirty-five mail poriches. Among them were
the St. Louis mail of the 19th inst., the Louis
ville mail of the 19th, the Cincinnati mail of
the 20th, the Toledo mail of the 20th, and the
Columbus and Pittsburg mails of. the same
dates. Besides these there were smaller mails
from several town.. The pouches were for
Harrisburg, for Philadelphia, and for Washing
ton. The Harrisburg mail was in five bags,
which were all saved without damage. These
five pouches had been placed in the compart
ment devoted to baggage, in order that they
might be readily pushed off at the Harrisburg
station, and they owed their safety to this fact,
for as the fire began in the mail compartment,
the baggage master had time to kick them out
of the car, just as they were about burning up.
The baggage consisted of a large number of
trunks, valises, carpet-bags, Bco., belonging to
about eighty passengers. Some of it had been
checked through from points in the West, and
the rest came mainly from PittOnrg. It wait
all in the forward compartment. The baggage
master gives the locality of the affair its about
two miles east of Huntingdon. He was in the
car at the time the locomotive ran over a steer,
which caused the trouble.
The time of the accident was 10 P. M., on
Wednesday night. When the engine ran over
the obstacle, the baggage-master was consider
ably knocked about, but he felt that the hind
wheels of the car were off the track. Instantly
he signalled the engineer to stop, but the rope
attached to the bell on the engine .either did
not work or the engineer did not hear it, and
the train ran on at a fearful rate, tossing the
car about and finally throwing all the wheels
of the baggage car off the track. The stove in
the baggage and mail car is firmly secured to
the floor, but it was soon loosened and broken
to pieces, the coals flying to all parts of the
mail compartment and setting the bags on fire.
The space of at least five hundred yards was
dashed over at full speed, the flames increasing
and the passengers in a perfect state of con
sternation. Finally the train stopped and the
half suffocatgd baggage master kicked out the
Harrisburg bags,(which the fire had not reach
ed,) and endeavored to save some of the bag
gage. He was unable to do this because the
door had jarred open and the smoke and flames
had completely enveloped the car, lighting up
the wild scenery along the road 'and making
a scene half terrifying and half picturesque. As
soon as the passenger care could be detached
the engine dragged the fragments of the bag
gage car for half a mile or so along the track,
the increased velocity making the burning oar
flame like a meteor gliding along over the
ground. The truck, which had begun to burn,
was thus saved,and the car burned entirely up.
As we have stated, the five bags of mail mat
ter for Harrisburg were saved. The other bags,
about thirty in number, were nearly all destroy
ed along with the baggage of the passengers,
many of whom went shivering along the track
(for it was a very cold night, with a perfect
gale blowing, trying to find their' property or
inspecting with curiosity the fragments of let
ters, which they could see by the light of the
smouldering ruins of the car. The Washington
letters were in great part applications from the
West for office, though the addresses and sig
natures were so neatly destroyed as to be ille
gible. They will be sent to the dead letter
office. Money letters were sometimes seen
half consumed. In one case an epistle con
taining twenty ten dollars bills and one five
dollar bill was burned squarely in half, leaving
the half of every note perfectly legible, while
the rest was completely consumed. Of course
there were love letters, and business letters,
and dans, and newspapets-t-but they were all
so burned as to be rendered as unintelligible
as so much blank paper. The Dead Letter
Office will, of course, be theikdestination. A
letter to the President was TOund, only half
burned up. It is doubtless a begging petition
for an office. The passengers, who had lost
their baggage, were of course in great trouble,
and many of them left without a change of
clothing, and without money. Only a few of
them have presented their claims 'against the
railroad company for their lost baggage. It
is impossible to firm ea estimate of the amount
of money lint, though urther details ogiibe
expected from the Weft in a day or two.

during the week his condition was regarded as

some weeks ago, will preach his introductlry

The loss of such a man as Mr. Waugh would

SEA BP.—There is a good deal of sound sense
at times in the remarks of insane persons. At
the Lunatic Asylum a few days since, a patient
was asked if be was fond of riding horseback.
"No, Sir, I ride a hobby." "There's not much
difference between the two," carelessly remark
ed the gentlemen. "Oh I yes, there is," said
the patient, "and it is this. If you ride a
horse, you can stop him and get off, but when
you mount a hobby you can't stop and you
can't get off."
COIMIRLAND VALLEY Mn.A AGINT.—The ru
mor alluded to yesterday, that Mr. George B.
Ayres, bad received the appointment of mail
agent between this city and Chambersborg, was
incorrect. We have reliable information from
Washington to the effect that Mr. Lafayette
Woods, for some time past a freight train
brakesman on the Cumberland Valley Railroad,
has been appointed to that position. He is an
honest and trustworthy man, and competent
for the post. We congratulate him upon his
Compratorraar.—Our neighbor of the Senti
nel, who gets up some very readable local items,
says that a case between railroad contractors
was pending in oar Court recently. In speak
ing of the Court he remarked that, "It was a
pleasure to do business in it, because the order
in it was perfect, and the intercourse between
the members of the bar was always courteous
and gentlemanly. The Judge," he continued,
"was a model presiding officer, and if justice
was truly administered anywhere it was in
liarrisburg." The truth of this compliment
makes it the more valuable.
Ellzalandk—Are were shown, an even
ing or two ago, a splendid copy of the Bible
designed for the pulpit of the Old School
Presbyterian church of this city, presented to
the congregation by our friend Gen. E. C. Wil
liams. The gift is an appropriate and beautiful
one, and reflects great credit upon the giver.
We have no doubt it will be highly prized by
the recipients, and their earnest desire and
prayer will be that the word of life contained
in this sacred volume may dwell in the heart
of the giver, imparting its precious consolations
in every hour of trial, and that its blessed light
may evermore illumine his earthly pathway
and guide him to the haven of endless rest.
Tau WZMISII to-day is delightful. The sun
shines down brightly from an unclouded dome
of blue; the atmosphere is balmy and refresh
lug; and the little birds, jubilant over the
change, greet us with charming music. This
afternoon the principal thoroughfares were
crowded with elegantly appareled promenaders,
and the entire city presented an unusually gay
and lively aspect. These sudden changes are
the characteristic features of this month. To.
day we have the wind from beyond the great
takes, and the thermometer goes down to the
neighborhood of zero. To-morrow it comes
from the warm South,bearing rain-laden clouds,
and the balmy air of the Mexican Gulf. Now
we have fierce snow storms and pinching frosts;
and it would seem that winter had resumed
his iron sway. Again the snows dissolve, the
banks disappear from under the walls, and in
sheltered nooks the grass lifts its green spires
above the withered vegetation of the old year.
March has very aptly been compared to a fickle
minded and petulant beauty—one day all smiles
and sunshine, the next all frowns and bluster.

hurried steps of those we meet in our walks,
are manifested the indubitable tokens of that
rapidly approaching crisis which will test the
capacity of pockets, and try the depth of pur

scarcity of the steady pewter wherewith to sat

Ma. }Dimon :—Will yob be kind enough to

made his appearance for th "manure ;^ but
