The &prima train for the Weer, which
left the depot at Eleventh and Market
Mil% all I*(l'i:dock last night, met with
a disattreee accident about a hell a mile a
tom Reatonville in the 24th Ward. The
train `which co nsisted of the locomotive,
bagpge car and two passenger cars, was
going up a heavy grade at the rate of a
bout fifteen miles an hour, when a rail
that had probably been rendered bride by
the, iukusse NO broke in three place.
throwing the front wheels of the ((Imam
car off the track. These 'wheels were.
.linwever, drawn upon the rails again, and
this car afterwardartstained its position up
on the track.
They second car was thrown from the
track, and the forward axle breaking the
. car, with all it. occupants, was percipitat.
etl 'down an etnbankement About 6',:ty
, feet high. The ear in its descent struck a
large:tree at the bottom. The contrdasion
vplitihs car open and threw tunny of the
i" passengers to the ground, atui enabled
most of the others to escape from the
wreck. Had not the car harm broken in
pieces the consequences would have born
more frightful, as there wao a very hot tire
in the stove. The blazing contents of the
stove Were scattered through the car in its
. .deliCent, and in a low minutes the latter
was in flames.
~Ok great number of the passengers were
ittore or loss hurt. Out of about fifty in
,the car, twenty seven were woinded.—
,Ilut one passenger killed. Ho was found
;lying upon his back with a portion of the
wreck pressing heavily upon his neck and
the upper part of his breast, lie lived
for about an hour after being extrteated
front the ruins, but was insensible during
this 'period. The deceased was not
, known, bin from papers in his pocket and
the initials upon his shirt , he is believed
'tti be Mr. Abraham El. Hart of the firm of
Wm, H. Hart & Son, merchants, of Jilt
cinnati; Ohio. The name of A. 11. Hart

which is supposed to have belonged to the
Aa anon as possible the wounded, and
; the passengers who escaped unhurt, were
got into the remaining passenger car and
the, baggage car, and brought back to the
city. Every possible attention was paid
to the wants of the wounded. The latter
- were taken to the ditierent hotels and to
private houses, and it is therefore impossi
:,ble to obtain a correct list of those who
were injured or of the extent of their ill
, ;juries iwe have procured, however, the
'lllllllllll of those who have been seriously
Mr.T. S. Watson, merchant of Si. Louie,

received some severe external bruises, but
his injuriets are not considered dangerous.

'the persons in the first car escaped the
slightest injury. Thu coupling of the
iirsa fortunately broke, or the consequence
would have been still more disastrous,.
The., who were present at the scene,
speak of the rapidity with which, the flames
spread through the broken car. In two
rninutes from the time of the accident, it
was %rapped in flames and the light caus
ed by it gave rise to a general alarm of
fire in West Philadelphia. 0
The intensity of the cold heightened the,
Si/ tr , t Inge of the wounded. There was no
house near the spot and the only place
of refuge was the remaiuing passenger
car and the baggage car. The scene is
.described 'as most appalling. There
were no women or children in the car 'ha

Another naltroad Accident.
A ferrible accident oce , trreil on the Phil.

day night. simrtly after the train left this
depot in that city, caused by the breaking
of a' rail and efts preeipitatiort of one of the

Among the severely irjured it Dr. E. G.

i Bnopueits, of this place. The first des.
l patch that reached Gettysburg, by special
messenger from York, announced that Mr.
FAIINE3TOOK bad been killed and his body
badly mangled. The shock to our commu
nity, among whom Mr. F. has en many
and warm friends, may readily be imagined.
His father and sister started for . the city
immediately on the receipt of the despatch.
Subsequent intelligence to the , effect that
he had been severely but pot dangerously
wounded tended to relieve the painful sen
sation produced by the fiat annoutthement.
LATER,--Mr. Few:lmoms% Monde

Ito was doing well. His injuries, although
severe, are simply flesh wounds. and there
wore prospects of his being able to return
to Gettystturg in the course of a few days.
In a letter receirecisfrom him last evening
ho thus refers to the accident
"The accident occurred about five miles from
the city. When I got in the car I was coin
pelted to take next to the back seat, and had
fallen asleep when the sodden jar roused me.
I grasped the seat and felt we were going over
a precipice. The ear struck a tree about 50
feet from the level. I felt that. I was wounded,
but fortunately,was very collected and aware
of our danger. ' I heard the groan 9 Of the Injur
ed end the cries of those, in perilous situations.
The car instantly took fire front the stove, and
the scene became appalling. Looking for an
opening, but seeing none, it was but the work
of a.moment to get a lcnifet front my pocket.
I opened it and commenced cutting a place of
sonic one creeping out of
a small hole made- in the snow,- I put 'up - tho'
knife and crawled out. I asked for help up the
embankment, but could not 'get it. However,
I managed to get up and walked to the other
car on the track. As I entered the car I heard i
the exclamation "how terrible ho looks." My I
face was covered with blood, giving the app-
pearance of being worse injured than'T really I
am. My only injury is in the face. No other
pert of the Wily was injured.l'
We learn from the• flame letter that ant
accident occurred on the same road'abobt
25 miles from Philacielptia; on Thursday
night previous, to the train from Lances
tor to Philadelphia. A rail having broken,
the car, in whioh Mr. FaurtesTocx was
seated was thrown from the track and, turn
ed over, but being at a level piece ofground I.
no special damage' was done.- .

the statement is - correct, so far as it goes,
but it does not embrace all that occurred

I asked if it was possible that his being a
Know . Nothing would be an Objection F

his remedies through every part of the known

where thousands have failed, eithe4 from want
of judgment or circumscribed means. Take
again the Professor's extensive rending-rooms
tit his establishment in London, why there is
not one in the world to be compared to it !
With the utmost regularity and care, every for
