Secession and Dissolution Who H to Dlami?
1 In 1856, as well as previous to the late
election, the followers of Republican teach
ings laughed at the idea of Southern resist
ance to Abolition rule, to the scandalous
abuses and assuhs of Northern sectional
ists upon the constitutional rights and insti
tutions of the Southern States. In 1856 the
"bold Fremont," who had lived on grasshopper-pies,
and found a bumblebee's nest
on the Rocky Mountain heights, could strad
dle the "wooly horse" and frighten the
South into the Golf of Mexico, if need be,
with scarce'' art effort ; while, it would re
quire nothing more than John Brown's
ghost and one old cow to silence them for
ever. These insinuations, however, though
believed by many an innocent voter, were
a unreliable as their promises of a busi
ness and specie mellennium. The people,
tho' aslonUhingly wide awake belore the
election, are beginning to discover that
their rail fence step in a tin-lamp march af
ter "homes for the homeless" and fabu
lous pockelsful of cash has been only a
dream; and that now, after the election,
whn they expected to be lulled to sleep by
the gentle bre.aih of of a subdued and si
lenced South, their eyes are oppning w ider
and wider every day. The fact is. a disso
lution of the Union, with its attendant con
sequences financial ruin and civil war
are faring us in the face, and we can only
blame a sectional Abolition and Republi
can party in the North for it. They have
been preaching treason to the spirit of the
Constitution for the last six year; they
have nullified the fugitive slave law. eleva
ted negroes to an equality with the white
race, and heaped every abuse in their pow
er upon the Southern States. A resistance
to this is natural, and will not ceaso until
the South have belter evidence of a frater
nal and constitutional feeling from the
North than is given them in the election of

Terrible and Fatal Accident,
Ar.other of those frightful accidents which
have on several occasions cast a shade of
horror, despondency, and gloom throughout
onr entire community, occurred on Monday
last, at about half past 12 o'clock. A M , by
the explosion of one of the boilers over a
puddling furnace in the Montour Rolling
Mill at this place The crash was as terri
ble as an earthquake itself, but there was
no mistaking its import or meaning, at last
to those who witnessed a similar ' catastro
phe in the same mill in 1854, or the one at
the Rough and Ready Works in 1855. Hun
dreds of our citizens soon hurried to the
scene, in order to wiiness the disastrous ef
fects, or be in time to allay the sufferings of
the poor unfortunates who had probably be
come victims to this wholesale butchery.
On arriving at the scene of the disaster, we
discovered a vast heap of ruins, from be
neath which were being excavated the
bodies of several of the workmen, whose
lacerated and bleeding forms presented a
sight pitiable to behold. One poor fellow
was instaily killed, while several Jwere so
severely scalded and bruised that but little
hopes were entertained of their recovery.
We helped one of the sufferers to his home,
who had received a serious wound on his
head, and complained of intense pain in
his breast. His family were much distress,
ed on seeing him returned in so hopeless a
condition, as he had left the house to attend
to his work, but in a few minutes before,
in the full vigor of manhood Tho boiler
that exploded was thrown, in a south-westerly
direction, tearing off the rudder of a
boat, and landed in the canal, a distance of
over a hundred yards below. A large por
tion of the mill was torn away boilers dis
placed by the concussion, and brick, iion,
and timber completed a vast heap of ruins.
Our physicians were promptly on the
around, and rendered all ihe medical aid
possible, while the proprietor, managers
and workmen exerted themselves, all in
their power, for the relief of the unfortu
nate snflering mortals. The following are
the number of killed and wounded, as far
as we have learned :
Joseph Redding was killed instant'y. lie
was an unmarried man, and resided on Ma
honing street. Patrick f,Val!ely was badly
bruised and scalded, and had an iron bolt
driven through his leg ; his recovery sup
posed to be hopeless. Humphrey Congh-

ation. in view of recovery, is con-idered
precarious. Henry Uoyle, scalded badly
