Shocking Death on the Railroad.
On Wednesday last, an Irishman named
John Drone, was carved up on the Portage
Road, at the foot of Plane No. 10 by a train of
frebrht cars.

hind him. The Molt «s struck, him, and he
1.11, the entire train passing over him, cutting
him literally in two! Michael Kelly and oth
,o, who were near, ran to his assistance but
it was too late. He gasped fur a few minutes,
without being able to speak, and died. From
4 letter tram his father, found in his pocket, it
,was ascertained that his name was John
Decay, from Donegal, Ireland, and from the
tenor of it, it was supposed that he was going
home. The letter was addressed to the care
of Philip - Collins, Plane No. 2. His effects
were taken charge of by Michael Simons and
Ids body in was interred in the Catholic burying

Grand Juries.
The following presentment was made by the
grand jury at the conclusioa of their labors at
-the Somersetshire (Eng.)'quarter sessions, hol
den at Bridgewater, just pow concluded:—"No
present, that at the close of Our duties as grand
Jurymen our inquiries were directed whether
'the labors we wore called upon to discharge
were any longer a public benefit. Almost all
the cases brought before grandjuries have
been previously inquired into before magis
trates, the evidence carefully considered, and
they have decided that there was sufficient
.cause to put the persons on their trial. To
.call from their homes a body of gentlemen un
.adeustomed to, the examination of witnesses,
and through them to interpose a public inqul.
•ry,itot whether the person is or is not guilty,
, but.whether the magistrate was right or wrong
in saying that there was sufficient ground for
'putting him on trial, appears to us t be a pro
ceeding entirely unnecessary, of no p.,1 i c
'ty, and frequently obstructive of justice, and
'we therefore state it as our opinion and belief
that it would (except in political cases) be
highly expedient and of great public benefit if
grated juries were altogether abolished.'
Hearing with the Teeth.
Many pears ago en old subscriber who was
entirely deaf, called nt our office, and with the
help of a slate which he always carried with
hint, we were enabled to converse with eael
other. Iu the course of our interview, he re
marked that for many years he had not been
•nble'to bear the loudest thunder, but added that
to his great surprise, a few evenings before he
was at the house of a friend and was seated by
the shit of a piano, his elbow resting upon it,
and his teeth upon his thumb, when he heard
distinctly the tune which the daughter of his
friend happened to be playing. Again and
again he tried the experiment, and he could al
ways hear when the connection thus formed
woo kept up, but could hear nothing whatever
when it was broken either by the removal of
his elbow, from the piano or by placing his
thumb upon any other portion of his face.—
From the character of our informant we have
=vented a doubt of the truth of his narrative
—and we give it now chiefly as a suggestion
whether some simple instrument cannot be
framed 'by means of which deaf persons may
be enabled to hear with their teeth.—Rich
mond Y - ct., Watchman.
snore Aug. 27th.—The New Orleans papers of
Sunday last are received.
The mortality of the week is reported at

discontinued on account of its bad effects on
the sick ; but the burning of tar was continued.

A Presbyterian clergyman in Ohio, in writing
of "Hunter's Medical Manual," says
"Thousands upon thousands ofour youth, by evil
example and the influence of the passions, Imre
been led into the habit of self-pollution without
realizing the sin and consequence upon them
selves and their posterity. The constitution of
thousands, who are raising himilies have been
enfeebled, if not broken down, and they do not
know the cause or the cure. Any thing that
eau be done so to enlighten and influence the
public mind as to cheek, and ultimately to re
move this wide-spread source of human wretch
edness, would confer the greatest blessing next
to the religion of Jesus Christ, on the present and
coming generation. Intemperance, (or list use
of intoxicating drinks,) though it has slain thou
sands upon thousands, is not a greater scourge to
the human race. Accept my thanks on behalf
of the afflicted, and, believe mo, your co-worker
in the good work you are so actively engaged in."
