Italy and Home. London, October 4,
Midnight. The latest dispatches leceived
from Italy, though conflicting, are highly
important. A message has just been receiv
ed from Florence announcing the clash of
arms. . The insurgent troops, holding a
strong position near Bagnarea, in Vitcrbo,
were attacked by the Papal forces. A short,
sharp fight ensued, which resulted in the
defeat of the attacking party, who were
obliged hastily to withdraw. The losses in
the engagement arc not stated. The effect
of this victory is very inspiriting to the
Party of Action. A public meeting of the
friends of Garibaldi was held at Turin on
the 3d. Revolutionary speeches were made
by many distinguished persons. Great
crowds of people were present "and the en
thusiasm was unbounded. Meetings of a
like character are in contemplation in other
cities of Italy. Though a prisoner at Cap
rera, Gen. Garibaldi has issued a stirring
address to his followers, which is published
all over Europe. He recites at length the
grievances of Italy, and asks his country
men to repel them now. He appeals strong
ly to their patriotism, and urges all his
friends to march forthwith to Rome.
The War Office. A Tribune corres
pondent says r Thero is foundation for the
report that Sherman is to be put in the War
Office. He was called to Washington by
the President. The order was not sent
through Gen. Grant, as required by an act
in a recent appropriation bill, and thr, it is
stated, means that he is to bi asked to take
Grant's placo in the War Office. Friends
of Gen. Grant say that ho has told the
President he wilt not remain in the War Of
fice any longer. They think the. President
wishes Sherman to succeed Him. White
House politicians state that Sherman is not
going into the War Department, and that
all depends on the election news to be re
ceived on Wednesday.
Report From Treasurer Spinner.
General Spinner, Treasurer of the United
States, in a report to the Secretary of the
Treasury to-day says: The stories which
have been so industriously circulated in re
gard to the abstraction or over issue of stocks,
notes, coupons and currency, or of any one
of them, or of any other obligations of the
government, are entirely without foundation
in truth or in fact.
The Chief -Justice could not escape a cor
dial reception lately by his fellow-citizens of
Ohio. His speech was brief and modest,
but rcassserted his faith in equal rights and
the inviolability of the public credit.
In Northern Ohio, according, to the San
dusky Register, the effects qt the drought
are very serious. For nearly three months
hardly any thing to be called a shower has
fallen in this part of the Reserve. Every
thing in the way of foliage is parched, black
ened and covered with dust Cisterns long
. since went dry, and now uine-tenths of the
wells are nearly exhausted. In some cases
cattle are driven six miles to water, aud for
ten miles back from the shore people depend
upon the Lake for water. Last week water
was hauled from the Lake, at tSaudusky, to
Bellevue twenty miles by raif-road, inland.
In some localities water hauled a great dis
tance is sold by the pailful, for cooking and
washing purposes.
The Johnstown correspondent of the Eb
ensburg .Freeman states that the iron ore in
the hills around Johnstown is about "played
oat,". From fifty to one hundred men have
been searching all the mountains in the
neighborhood , during the past three years,
yet no trace, of ore can be found. When
the mines now being worked are exhausted,
the occupation of some five hundred men,
in that place, will be gone.

The Body of Maximiilian.
A correspondent of tho Tribune, who' has
been to Queretaro, and there saw the body
of Maximiilian, writes :
" I found the coffin containing the remains,
in a room in the second story of the house
occupied by Sr. Don Munos Dedo. A sol
dier stood guard at the door, ready to give
admittance to all who might desire to look
at the body, which wiilingness was, in our
case, sou ewriitt accelerated by the influence
of a few reals. The apartment bore the ap
pearance of having once been used for a
storeroom, and was both vejy dark and ex
tremely filthy. The coffin stood in the cen
tre of the room, resting on a couple of rude
wood benches. It is covered with oiae
cloth, adorned with a cheap quality of gold
lace, the top of which has a false cover or
lid, opening which case reveals three glas
ses, through which the sileDt form of the
ill-fated Austrian was shown by the aid of a
penny tallow candle kept by the soldier for
visitor's use. The Emperor was dressed in
a suit composed of a blue coat, with a row
of brass buttons in frout, dark blue pants,
and heavy, cavalry boots. His hands were
covered with a pair of white glove, very
much soiled. Hismoath and eyes were par
tially open, plainly showing his teeth and
the cojor of his eyes. His beard is quite
gone, as well as the greater part of his hair,
which, I am informed, ha been cut off by
Dr. Lisso, who had charge of theembaliu
ment, and sold it, he receivirg as high as
five ounces $S0 for small locks of the
The body of the Emperor remained
at Liso's house until last week, when it
was removed to its present location, dur
ing which time he made use of it as a means
of speculation. He also disposed of what
ever effects belonging to Maximiilian he
could obtain, charging large sums for small
!)ieces of his blood-stained -earments, which
le cut up and sold. It is also ailed ged that
he has even removed a small portion of the
skull, for which he obtained a large sum,
replacing it with wood. I cannot vouch for
this, but it has general belief here. The
doctor affirms that the government has fail
ed to pay him his bill for the embalment of
some $40,000, and declares his intention of
making his money the surest way possible.
The President's Line of Defense.
A New York letter to the Charleston
Courrier, ays : It is well-known among a
certain class of men that Mr. Johnson, du
ring more than a year past, lias carefully
collected all the speeches, and even parts of
speeches, made by Republican and Demo
cratic Senators in reference to the impeach
ment question. For that purpose, a rorps
of the very best of our city stenographers
have been constantly on the wing, following
in the track of the itinerate Senators, and
making transcripts" of these speeches appa
rently for publication in a leading New York
journal, but really to serve as a powerful
weapon in the hands of the President when
ever the opportune moment shall have ar
rived. It is, I understand, the intention of
Mr. Johnson, in the event of articles of im
peachment being sent to the Senate, to bold
ly declare that he will not be tried by Sena
tors who have declared themselves either in
favor or against bis impeachment, lie
takes the ground that the meanest criminal
in the country, even when tried upon a
charge of petty larceny, has the right to
challenge his jurors. And he claims, with a
good deal of sound reasoning, that in all im
portant matters like this, it is simply due to
justice that his judges should not be men
who have prejudged his case. In fine, that
he will not be tried by judges who hold him
guilty even before the trial has commenced.
The "moment matters are approaching this
crisis, the stenographers who, during the
past year, have been taking down the Sen
atorial speeches, directly or indirectly allud
ing to impeachment, will be summoned to
Washington, nd be called upon to swear to
the correctness of their reports now in the
President's possession. Among the judges
against whom special exceptions will be ta
ken by Mr. Johnson are Senators Howard,
Thayer, Nye, Sumner, Wade and Chandler.
How to Prr Out Fires. A "Consul
ting Chemist" writes to a scientific paper
that he happoned to be present some time a
go at a burning of an oil distillery. The
place was, as usual, drowned with water,
which merely had tle effect of spreading the
flames and increasing their intensity, for the
oil burned until there appeared to be noth
ing left to support the flames. I noticed
the flaming oil floating on the surface of the
water on the floors. The water running
down the walls bore a flaming surface of oil
likewise. This slrow that the water had
little or uo power over the burning oil.
There was lying near the building in
which the fire broke out a large quantity of
sand. JNow, if half a dozen men, provided
with spade, had dashed"' a lot of this sand
upon the flames soon after the fire was dis
covered, it would have been put out and but
little damage done.
Some time ago I put out a fire, which
might have destroyed an immense amount
of valuable property, by simply dashing fif
ty or a hundred shovelfuls of slacked lime,
which happened to be near at hsnd, upon
the flames, which literally choked them out.
The fire in this case was caused by a cask of
oil being set on fire accidentally. This is
only one ot the many fires which I have
seen put out by adopting the same means,
I consider-it would be a good plan if owners
of such places asoilwoiks, etc., always had
at hand a quantity of sand, dry old lime
waste, etc., which could be used in the man
ner I have stated.
Dr. Livingston e -.The chances of Dr.
Livingstone's safety are growing better. A
letter from a missionary at Bombay, with a
reference to this matter, contains, after a
statement of disbelief in the reports of his
murder, the following: "Not a single one of
the eleven Christian Africans who accompa
nied Livingstone from Bombay has returned
tons; and we conclude that he has most
likely gone with them into the unexplored
lake country. , Iwo ot them, who were edu
cated to a certain extent in the Mission In
stitution under myself were young Ajawaa
whom he had brought to India, and they
"tic wcu acquainted witu tne language of
the country to which he was going. "Had
their master fallen, as described Musa, both
they and their companions (who were" all
from the Church Mission at Nasik) would,
we are confident, have sought to return .to
India, whera they have mary warm friends
willing to assist them in a settlement in
Africa were it neeessary." - ..
One of the new members of the Verrnont
legislature weighs 320. pounds,
, Justice to Lincoln.
The fact that the widow of Abraham Lin
colu recently visited our City, with intent to
sell here certain shawls, dresses, laces, and
jewelry, relics of her happier clays, has ex
cited a painful sensation. We do not envy
the journalists who have seen fit to give pub
licity tothe letters and menioranda where
by those relics were advertised. .
It seems to us that our people have been
less than just to Mr. Lincoln. We knrw
how easily the dead are forgotten, and that
gratitude has been aptly defined as "a lively
sense of favors expected." But we do not
plead for gratitude. The widows of the of
ficers and soldiers slain in their country's
defence receive pensions, not in recognition
of special merit on their part, nor yet as j
alms, but as some poor recompense for their
sacrifices for their country's preservation.
And no soldier ever fell on a bat tle-field more
truly a martyr than was Abraham Lincoln.
The bullet that killed hiai was impelled by
no private hate. As a man, he had no en
emy on earth ; as President only, wa3 his
death meditated or desired. Had he remain
ed a private citizen, he would, in all human
probability, have been living to-day.
In view of these facts, it does seem to us
that the payment of his salary for the term
on which he had just entered was no more
than his righteous due. He had been over
whelmingly re-elected. llc had entered
upon his second term of service. lie had
a right to calculate upon the salary by law
affixed to the office. Had he died by disease
it might have sufficed to pay his familv one
year's salary, as in the ease of President
Harrison. But, struck down as Mr. Lincoln
was, not merely while he was President, but
because he was President, we think the peo
ple should have niado up the four years'
snlary to his family should still make it up.
We gave our mite to this end directly after
his death. We are willing to give ajrain.
All must know that a President's widow,
especially the wfdow ot one who had run so
great a career, cannot live so cheaply as a
seamstress. She will be sought, and must
receive company. Can we not still be jusf,
as a people, to Abraham Lincoln's family.
Terrible and Fatal Accident in Cum
berland County. The Mechaniesburg
Journal of Oct. 4, says : On Thursday last,
while Mr. John Bentzel, residing on the
Lisburn road, m-ar Lisburn, and about four
miles south of this place, was engaged, with
his hands, in threshing buck wheat on the
machine, a most shocking accident occured
to his son Lewis, a lad ot fourteen years of
age. While the machine was running at a
high rate of speed, the strap broke. Mr.
Bentzel, who was feeding the machine, ran
out to assist in stopping the horses. In
the meantime Lewis, who had been engaged
in taking the straw away from before the
machine, stepped to the side of the machine
to ascertain what was the matter and while
standing near the pully . of the cylinder,
which was still revolving very rapidly, his
arm was caught in some way between the
pully and the strt p. which still was suspen
ded on it, and in a twinkling his arm was
wrapped around the pully, and the forearm
fractured in 6ix places. The upper part of
the arm was also fractured near the shoul
der. His body was raised from the floor by
the revolving cylinder, and its weight being
raised by.so violent a jerk, was more than
the arm could bear, and it was aliuott torn
off, at the place where it was broken above
the elbow, remaining suspended but by a
small strip of flesh, the muscles protruding
six inches or more. His body, it seems, al
so made several revolutions around the pul
ley, and his head striking the floor or ma
chine, his skull was fractured and the jaw
bone broken. Becoming detached from the
cylinder, the momentum threw him about
ten feet, where he was found lying insensi
ble. He was picked up and carried to the
house, and Drs. Long and Fulmer sent for,
who amputated his arm and dressed his
fractures ; but having sustained severe inter
nal injuries he remained unconscious until
his death, which occured on the day follow
ing, at five o'clock in the evening. He was
a bright, intelligent boy, and his tragic death
has filled the hearts ot his friends with pro
found sorrow, and the neighborhood with
deep gloom. This is another terrible remin
der that all who work about machinery of
any kind should use the utmost caution, if
they would escape injury.
Mexican Priests. Numbers of the
priests have families and female relatives
whose duties are conjugal. These like the
ladies who keep house for an (wo hope)ex
ti net race of cardinals, Kmetimes pass un
der the names of neices or cousins, but they
not unfrequently, n open defiance of the
professional celibacy of their protectors, as
sume the title of wife. A woman of Oax
aca, when the abbe asked her about these
singular unions, told him: "My country
women prefer living with the priests because
they are better kept." The poor creatures
are so wretched that they look out for a
house where they are always sure of finding
plenty of food aud clothing. The priests
and the women are not dishouored by this
concubinage ; they are even respected if they
get on well together. A tradesman having
asked the concubine of a priest belonging to
an Episcopal household for the.price of a
gown, she told him that she had no money,
and he must wait. "I do not choose to
wait." said the tradesman, "and if you do
not pay me at once I will summon you be
fore a J udge." "Try then. Do you know
that I belong to the sacred mitre? Fravrs
A Mvsteriocs Case op Shooting a
Young Lady. The Coxsackie Xews gives
the particulars of another ac in a singular
drama that has for soiffe time been in the
process of enactment atNew Baltimore. On
the 22d of June a daughter of Philip Greene,
ot that town, was shot and severely wounded
by an unknown person. On the 8th cf Au
gust she was again fired at through a win
dow. The third act now presents itself. On
Saturday last Miss Greene was again wound
ed by a pistol shot. The young girl, who
is feeble from the effects of the previous
wounds, was at noon time in the garden,
when a man suddenly presented himself!
uttered a threat with the emphasis of an
oath, fired, the ball entering her person. He
at once fled. The wound, fortunately, is not
dangerous.; . The case is slrrouded in mys
tery. Some suppose that the man is known
to the girl, butthatfor some of these strange
reasons that at times govern female conduct,
she will not divulge his name? She, how
ever, has : made an affidavit denying all

A Sailing Carriage for the Plains.
We were shown, says the St. Louis Demo
crat, a model of a "sailing carriage," de
signed for crossing the Plains to New Mex
ico. It has two upright jib sails, and a sa"il
on each spoke of the two wheels on one side
of the wagon, with steering gear acting oa
the forward wheels, and provision for trans
ferring the wheel sails to the opposite
wheels. The inventor is Charles P. Maezo
witsky, a German, who lias been a sailor,
and has since spent several years in travers
ing the plains. The long and tedious voy
ages of the trains led him to think of and
perfect, this contrivance, which he seems
earnest in thinking must succeed. When
the model is placed upon a plane and blown
upon it is moved readily by the wind. He
relies upon the ascertained constancy of the
prevalent winds on the great plains, over
the route named. A full sized sailing car
ringe has just been finished for him, and is
to be exhibited at Fourth and Poplar streets.
The wheels are ten feet 1 igh, the wagon
body shaped like ajong boat nnd buns low,
and, with the jib sails, the whole coucern
presents an odd and formidable appearance.
The design is to take passengers and mail
matter, not freight, and it is expected that
the carriage will suffice as a boat in crossing
streams. The thing is decidedly curious
and interesting.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company, in
connection with the Camden and Amboy
road, have completed thier new road around
the city of Philadelphia,commencing at the
present terminus of the Central road in
West Philadelphia. From to-day through
trains will run direct between Jersey City
and I'itteburg. making only a temporary
halt in West Philadelphia. There will be
no change of cars, and the same time will be
made as by the Allentown route. A silver
palace car will run over this route, direct
from New York to Cincinnati. In connec
tion with this we may mention the fact that
Philadelphia city is now left out in the cold
as regard. through passenger trains, either
from New York City to Pittsburgh, or be
tween New York and Baltimore and the
South. None of the trains now touch at
Philadelphia, and some of the Baltimore
trains refuse to take passengers to the sta
tion opposite the city.

Four. The son of a nobleman in Eng
land who studied divinity at Oxford, had a
j'acht, in which he spent most of his time
with some fellow students. ' Being but very
imperfectly prepared for . examination, he
could hardly answer any question, when the
examiner, to facilitate him aked ; "Pray,
sir, how many persons in the Trinity ?" The
pupil, tliisking the professor alluded to his

"Four, sir, beside the sfeersman."
Wouldn't Stay Dead. There is a cu
rious story in Houston, Texas, of an indig

quite dead, and hence the catastrophe. Af

whether he was in his right sense and mind,
he was brought back and put to bed with a
fair chance of recover'.

Speaking of home runs that was an ear

result was they all died.
