. We haie to record the most extensive
and fatal casualty evertlinown in this
country: Yesterday morning at an.early
hour a very large train left Orange. N.J.,
en route for the White House, Washing
ton, D. C., under the ch'arge of chief en
gineer George B. McClellan. It was ex
pected to make the, trip through in twelve
hours. The train was very heavily laden
with mercligndise shipped by a New York
Jew house, Augustus Belmont agent.
All the copperheads in the country were
parsengers, besides a feW innocent people
who bad been deluded into taking an ex
cursion trip by the offer of dec.lhead
tickets. Moratio Seymour of New York
wail the conductor, assisted by Franklin
Pierce, C. L. Irallandigham and Joel
Parker. Ben. Wood was appointed to hold
all'the money received•for fares.and wore
a hat band marked conspicuously 4-11-4.4.•
For convenience-and comfort • the pas
sengers were classified in the cars; the
!fogies under' the charge! of Robert C.
'Winthrop and Millard Fillmore, the short
boys under John Van Buren and Capt.
Rynders, the mountebanks and minstrels
led by rack Rogers and, Marble, editor of
the World, and the few clergymen mar
shaled by the very Revs. , C;. Chauncey
Burr and H. J. Van. Dyke. There were
several cars that. were intended to be at
tached to the train thaedid not make the
connection—one from, Canada, with
George N. Saunders conductor, and a
roomy one from New York, filled with
Gqv. Seymour's "friends," were both de
tained by the unwarrantable interference
ofla man named Benjamin I?. Butler,who
came to New York last week to "stop a
spell." The :Cars were gorgeously deco
rated with such elegant mottoes as the
following: "Butter has riz," "Abe Lin-1

'They moved out of the Orange depot
gaily to the tune of Dixie,_ though the
engineer hesitated, when the final mo
went of departure came, about stepping
on the platform, and was at last only got
on board by a little expedient of Fernan
dO Wood, who pulled him into the train,
backwards by his coat tail. Engineer
McClellan was.dressed in the full rig of
a Major General, for which his.uole
Sam paid. He was very nervous and
remarked that he should prefer a gunboat
to a ride on such a locomotive. • The en
gine was a new one,
built at Chicago last
4ugust, but on a plan ,designed by Ben
edict Arnold, and subsequently improved
Li l y Aaron Burr andjortn C. Calhoun.—
.I.t was built to the order of Jeff. Davis
and bore the nogagin,„c , name of "Cessa
Lion," which was adopted as a slight
Change from thn original designation
It occasioned a good, deal of remark!
that hardly any soldiers took passage on 1
the train. . There were some men named
grant, Sheridan, Sherman, looker and
pis around, whoj very ungenerously ex
pressed doubts ds to the safety of the
track and the ability of the engineer, and;
it is supposed this prejudiced the "blue
coat" boye., Besides this the conductor
of the train refused to have an American
flag on the engine, and the soldiers have
h stubborn feeling of prejudice on that
subject. Notwithstanding these slight
I ,fdrawbacks the train moved off; with the i
Ilgood wishes and cheers of all titer rebel
„soldiers in Lee's army, all the British
aristocrats, and the pirate Semmes and
'his friends. From all that can be learned
from the incoherent talk of the few sur
vivors of the sad catastrophe it appears
that there was trouble from the very start.
The engineer and his fireman Pendle
ton quarreled, all the trip, hbout the firing
up, and the conductors and the fare taker
were constantly giving contradictory or
ders to the brakemen, and pervous con,,
servative old gentlemen pulled frantically
at the-bell-rope, giving engineer McClel
lan no end of trouble. Just how the ac
cident happened no one can tell 'now, but
Icertain it is, that before the train i got half
way through, there was a shocking smash
up. : The locomotive exploded, the cars
were•all piled up in fragments, the track
torn up and such a multitude of passen
gers 'fstally injured that it is doubtful if
their names can be ascertained. Some
assert that an old Illinois joker, familiarly
called old Abe, caused the disaster by
putting a rail on the track; others that
the fireman Pendleton let too much wa
ter out of the peace tank upon the fire in
McClellan's boiler; others that Valise
digham ran the train off the track by drop
ping an "0. A. K." stick of timber under.
the wheel; still others that the engineer
was frightened by suddenly discoyeribg a
"nigger in his wood pile" on the tender,
and overturned the locomotive by at- I
tempting to "change his base„ too sud- '

the more dittinguished persons that, are
recognizable. Ben Wood is missing al

Weed bogus soldier's votes ; Governor

any such man ,ever existed. The funeral
of these excursionists wilt very soon be
attended in Richmond, Va., by Jeff Davis
and all his 'cabinet, and it is currently
reported that U. S. Grant may attend,
not, however, in the character of a mourn

Whit the'South Is Fighting For
The 'follovion• clipped from the Rich.
mond Sentinel beiring date Oct. 18th,
may serve to give our democrat friends
an idea of what rebels are fihting for.—
If anY of our readers feel disposed to call
it an abolition lie, they can see the paper
by calling at the' office. It is the con
clusfon of a long editorial designed to Show,
the utter exhaustion of the North :
We do not forglt however, that there
is another' source to which the Yankees
look for reenforfiements, and on. which
they build large calculations. We mean
the negroes. Indeed, Mr. Lincoln open
ly admits that take away this help and
he hds no 'chance for success. , He and his
' echoes even affirM,that they have at this
time 200,000 song of Africa in his mili
tary servile.'' That is manifestly untrue.
Where are they ? Grant's and Sheridan's
and Sherman's armies' all united, would
not amount to two hundred thousand
men. But our enemies do not remertt :
bbr one thing. They do not remember
that, as President- Davis says we are
Got fighting for•sldvery, but fur independ
ence., We would sooner sacrifice slavery,
a thousand times than be ccooquered by,
the Yankees and then have it sacrificed' l
by them. If it become necesary we can
enlist the negro element on our side.—
We can make all the offers that the Yan-,
trees can, and 'some that they eanuot.-1
We are far more considerate for our do-
mestics than our inhuman enemies. We
have not desired to involyp them in our
wars. • Save for our tenderness for them
we could long,ago have used them to far
better purpose than the Yankees ever can.
If necessity should ever oblige us to lay
aside our scruples ' upon our enemies will
be all the blame before God and man.
The Path,-to the National Cap-
It-has always been the boast of the,
slaveholders that the Constitution of the I
United States nut only sanctioned and
recognized slavery, but that the pathi to
the national capital leers through slave
States,, and that the interests :of slavery
were thus joined to the safety of the cap.
ital'of the nationi and thererore one could
not, be impaired without endangering the
security of the other. Like all the other
arguments and positions to serve slavery,
this has been swept away,bythe billow of
war, and now for. the first time in the his
tory of the Republic, a path to the nation
al capital has been opened through free
territory. The emancipation policy adopt- i
ed in Maryland, breaks the dark bonds;
in which slavery, has invested freedom's l
capital. Had Slavery been content to en
joy;the privilege it possessed—had those
who,yved in lukury and base by the bar- I,
ter . in human flesh, been satisfied with
their social powers, and not aimed at
bending all interests to their institution
Maryland to-day would have still been a
slave State, and the path to the national
capital would have led, at least during
ithis century, if Rot for the great part of
the next, through slave territyry.
In addition to !the gratifying result in I
Maryland, by which a State has been
wrested from slivery, the fact that the
syratiathizeraWith the slaveliolder's cause
were defeated iW'Nevi York at the late
election, is equally important to all the
true friends of fteedom. New York and
Pennsylvania are
.in the hands of
loyal men: . Ina few weeks New Yoik
will have a loyallGoVernor, who acting, in
conjunction with s , Governor Curtin, of
Pennsylvania, will iimleed complete the
Security of the free . path to the National
• Capital. -This is another result of the
slavhholders' rebellion: " Had the Dem
ocratic leaders of the Empire State, been
true -to themselves and their country,
nothing could ii:ave defeated the re-clee
of Governor Seymour. But he . and his
friends adopted,:the cause in the interests
of slavery, and thus another mighty com
monwealth was "forced as it were, to de
lare for freedoM that there might be ne
mistake about her adhcrance to the Na
tional Government.' These are all com
pensatory results, for the sacrifice made
to crush the slaveholders' rebellion. A
free path to the National Capital, and free
States united f4r• the control of the sym
