':WilEntAs ti crisis in tho pdifticat history of
Iktprt fur fl)t
the. county has been reached and amid the
strife of warring elements it is necessary to
re-affirm and vindicate the-essential principles
of the Whig party. Therefore
Resolved, By the Whigs of Cumberland
County in County Convention Osembled:
First, That the existence of the Federal
Union is the palladium of our prosperity and
liberty, and that in view of its inestimable
value we would shun all sectionalism nad
selemly protest against any course which
would merge the Whig party into disunionists
either North or South.
Second, "That all men have a natural and
indefeasible right tt) worship Almighty God
according to the dictates of their own con
sciences, that no hutnan authority can in any
way whatever control or interfere with the
right of conscience and that no preference
should e'er be given by law to any religious
establishments or modes of worship."
Third, That while we believe the time has
come for a rn.lical change in the naturalization
laws, we•believe also that the principle should
be fairly, openly and honestly avowed and the
organization to effect the end should be a fair,
open and honest organization.
l'ourth, That we have no affinity with
modern Democracy and that the present Na
tional Administration by its imbecility, by its
approval of the repeal of the Missouri Com
promise, by the removal of Governor Reeder
and by its almost innumerable short comings
in every thing magnanimous or statesmanlike,
has merited and should receive the condemna
tion of every good citizen.
Pph, That having for many years con
tended for the principles and measures of the
Whig party, which we believe to be eminently
_national, conservative and patriotic, and being
as ardently attached to them as ever, we can
not consent to abandon the standard under
which we have so long battled; and therefore
we pledge ourselves one to the other to give
the ticket this day nominated our most cordial
and zealous support.
Sixa, Thnt the bust interests of the State
would be promoted by the bale of the Public
On motion it was
Resolved, That the proceedings of this Con
vention be signed by the officers and published

Narrow Escape of the Pozactiger3.—One of the
most inexcusable note of recklessness that we
ever heard of, took place on the Albany and
Boston railroad, on Tuesday afternoon. As
the 4 30 train got 'within a few miles of Chat
ham, a train on the Hudson and Berkshire
'railroad was discovered going towards Chatham
also." A challenging signal wne immediately
given from the Albany engine to the Hudson
to catch them if they could. The train from
-Albany consisted of engine, one' or two bag
gage cars, and three coaches heavily loaded
with passengers. The one from Hudson had
two coaches with a few passengers, conse
quently it was light and gained upon the other,
about tire seconds to the mile. Both engines
were 'wide open,' and doing their best. After
running about three miles side by side, the
Hudson and Berkshire track takes a curve
round a rock and a stream, and crosses the
Western railroad track nearly at right angles
—the engineer of the Albany train calculated
that the Hutt on train would lose three seconds
in going round the rock, while the engineer of
the Hudson train imagined he could gain still
more, as his train was now under full head
way. Having gained fifteen seconds, and got
even with the Albany train, the Hudson engi
neer thought ho could get over the crossing
ahead. The calculations were very close, and
would have done, for horse•boat captains, but
was criminal in railroad engineers.
Instead .of gaining, the Albany engine lost
two seconds, and struck the other train in the
centre of a passenger car, cutting it in two,
and cal rying the entire Albany train through
the car. As the Albany trunk struck the other,
the engine was misplaced, and struck the
sleepers instead of the rails, and just after
passing through the car, jumped around cross
wise of the track, considerably wrecked. \Had
the engine of the Albany train gained a \few
seconds instead of loosing, the Hudson trkin
would have struck the Albany cars in the
centre, and the loss of life -and limb that
would then have ensued can be easily imagin
ed. The car from Hudson had but three pas
sengers, who escaped miraculously—the con
ductor being the (Ally one hurt, and Ile not
very seriously. Whether the Western Rail
road Company will reward the engineers for
their close calculations, or discharge them for
their recklessness, we do not know. The mat
ter is before the board of directors for investi
gation.—Albany Knickerbocker.

A frightful railroad accident occurred near
embongton, New Jersey, on the Camden and
y Railroad, on Wednesday forenoon, by
which twenty-one or two persons were killed,
and a much larger number severely injured.
The Philadelphia Ledger, of Thursday, has
the following account of this terrible catits-
trophe :
"'The train of oars wlijch left Philadelphia,
for New York, at ten o'clock, consisting of
five passenger cars, baggage car and locomo
tive, had renehed Burlim 4 ton just before 11
o'cl nck. It then stopped, waiting for the ar
rival ot' the 8 o'clock New York train, from
Jersey city, which posses at this place. After
waiting for from five to ten minutes, and the
New Pork tr,do not appearing, the Philadel
phia train went fn.rward slowly, watching for
the approach of the downward train. It had
gone ,orward about a mile and d quarter when
the New York train came in sight. The whis
tle for the breaks and to re' rse the engine.
was b own, and the Philadelphia train com
menced backing, ninil soon got under rapid
headway for Burlington again. Li this re
verse movement, the passenger cars, usually
placed behind and coining after the locomo
tive, were now in front, and pushed forward
by the locomotive. The engineer being with
the locomotive, of course had not the advan
tage of seeing what was ahead of the back
ward going train. Ile had run but a quarter
of n mile, and a mile from Burlington, when
the first passenger car came in collision with
a light pleasure wagon, driven by Dr. Bonne
gan, of Columbus, N. J., who attempted to
cross the track in front of the cars.
The wagon contained Dr, Hennepin, his
wife, and two children. The former, it is said,
is hard of hearing, and by this infirmity caus
ed an accident nearly similar , but not so fatal,
near Beverly, about a year ago. The doctor
had seen the cars pass as he was driving down
the road, and supposing all safe, neglected to
keep a proper lookout. The first passenger
car struck the two horses in the wagon, just
as they were crossing the track, killed them
instantly, and threw one thirty feet on one
side of the treck,.and the other forty yards on
the other side. .The wagon was turned round
and upset, none of its inmates being injured,
except in slight bruises. The front car, A,
after striking the horses, ran forward, and off
the track, ahoct one hundred yards, and over
a small embankment. The second car. 13,
was thrown directly Across the track. The
third car, C, Went through car It and stopped
diagonally across the road, the fourth car, D,
followed and ran into oar C. The fifth pas
senger car and the baggage car stopped with
out leaving the track. The two latter were
not injured, hut three of the other passenger
cars were knocked to pieces, and many of
their occupants wore killed, wounded, and
' It is impossible to describe the horrible
scene that ensued. The cars were pined upon
each other, and numbers of human beings
were lying among the ruins—some dead, some
dying, some shrieking from pain. Those sav
ed in the train, and the passengers on the
down train, aided by citizens of Burlington,
who were quickly informed of the terrible
accident, went to work to rescue the wounded
and dying from the ruins. As soon as taken
out they wtre conveyed to Burlington, where
many private houses, as well as Agnew's and
Kelly's taverns, were thrown open to the ad
mission of the wounded, while the Lyceum
was appropriated for the reception of the
dead. Sumo had been crushed to death in
stantly, leaving scarcely a trace to recognize
them by ; some had been torn limb from limb
by the splinters, benches and floors, and their
remains scattered in every direction. Ninny
wore suffering from crushed limbs, broken
backs, and injured and lacerated bodies. The
scene was a heart sickeningone ; but amid all
its terrors, there were noble instances of resig
nation. n self-sacrificing spirit from the suffer
ers, which honored human nature.
It was nearly an hour before all the dead
and wounded were extricated and placed in
the hands of persons ready to aid them,—
Eleven dead LAidies were taken out of the
ruins, and - Others were so badly injured that
they died as soon as they got to the hotel at
Burlington. It is supposed that from fifty to
sixty persons have been wounded, some seri
ously, and others slightly.
The Ledger • makes a list of killed twenty
one—the North American has it twenty. two
Among the list are Mr. George W. Ridgway,
oil merchant; Alexander Kelley, Queeusware
do. ; Baron do St. Andre, French Consul ;
Edward P. Bacon; Spring Garden ; 'Wilson
Kent, of the firm of Dyott & Co. ; Mrs. -Cle
ment Barclay, Catharine Bigelow, and George
Ingersoll, son of Lieut. Harry Ingersoll, all
of Philadelphia. Among the injured are Dr.
Andrew Porter, of Harrisburg, and a number
of Philadelphians.. , .
Two NEw STATES.—It is believed that bel
fore the close of the next Congress, both Kan-
eas and Hianesota will apply for admission
into the Union. 'The late census of the latter
territory, shows that she has already nearly
the requisite population, and the inhabitants
of both are rapidly increasing. Mintiesota
will, of course, come in as a free State, but
how it will be With Kansas remains to be amt.

By the arrival of a steamer, intelligence has
been received from the Baltic fleet, embracing
a continuous account- of the' operations at
Sweaborg from the 9th to the Ilth instant.—
The destruction of property and loss sustained
by the Russians was itnmense. The allies
suffered only , trifling losses. On the I3th,
after the bombardment, the fleets returned to
The Russian fleet at Sweitborg was not de
stroyed, but the damage done the place was
MOSt disastrous. An immense conflagration
was caused by the bombardment, which raged
for forty five hours, destroying storehouses,
magazines, arsenals, &c. The various powder
magazines in the place blew up, together with
other military stores, projectiles, &c.
The despatches of the French and English
Admirals do not say anything about the Rus
sian ships at Swenborg. Plus adios lost no
lives in the engagement, and only two officers
and thirty men belonging to the English fleet
were wounded. The French escaped with
about the same number of womided. Saes.-
borg, however, did not surrender, notwith
sbinding the terrible blow the allies claim to
have inflicted upon it.
Very important news from the Crimea had
been received at London. Early on the morn
ing of the Ifith the Russian army under
Gen. Liprandi attacked the line of the Allies
on the Tchernaya The Russians were 60,000
strong, and the battle lasted for three hours,
proving ii most sanguinary contest. The Sar
dinians fought must bravely with the Allies,
and repelled the Russians with terrible loss.
Four or five thousand Russians were killed nod
400 were taken prisoners. The loss of the
Allies was but small. The Russians were in
complete retreat when the French reserve
came up.
Omer Paella had received orders to return
to the Crimea instead of going to Asia.
A St. Petersburg dispatch says that Gorts
chakoff has received orders to sink the lillti

The London Morning Post, the ministerial
paper, s,ys that it, Iris reason to expect stir

Crimea. This is supposed to refer to the great
secret expedition. . .
The latest accounts from Asia Minor says
that Kars has been completely invested by the
Russians, and the first parallel opened; and
that all communicatiuns with Erzeroum has
been stopped. Turkey is sending reinforce
