between several colliers and a party of
Irishmen. The colliers, it appearsmad

would speedly.have killed one or more,
. for i she D .ortune arrival oldhe w-
a note t;mia the railway authorities that
ft coal train had been thrown off the
line by some tularreant or other, who
had placed sleepers along the rails.
Knowing that colliers uorking at a
distance invariably returned by these
trains, and remembering the struggle
of the night before, 1 at once concluded
this to be an attempt at Irish revenge,
and pursued my investigation accord
A few nights after,,another coal train
WEIS thrown off the rails, as, in the- for
mer case, however, without harm to the
men ; but this second attempt spurred
me on, so that certain suspected persons
were speedily in custody. But I soon
found that these were not "my men."
It. is useless for me to expatiate on the
Jainerring ifigua by which innocence in
" Variably asserts itself. The Irishmen
were violent men in their cups, but
most certainly incapable of the atro
cious act of which they were accused.
Scarcely had a week passed when the
whole neighborhood was thrilled with
horror. At a distance of twelve miles
from the town where I lived was an
other town, to which our tradesmen re
sorted in numbers every Wednesday to
market. - In the evening, the last train,
as usual, bore its numerous passengers
to their homes. It was ? summer-time,
and merrily they dashed along the rug
ged hank of a mountain-river, winding
in amongst the hills. But soon the pic
ture was changed; turning a curve in
full career, the engine left the rails, and
cutting deeply into the embankment,
rolled on its side, fortunately having
continued just a sufficient time in pro
giess to break the shock of the carriages.
There Sl'a, an aiwtul cry of lamentation,

and women -cocking to clamber through

intent on per-zonal safety to think of
anything else. :lost were bruised, and
all were trightened. While messengers
were dispatched to the nearest station,
others sea#ched along the route for the
cause of the mishap. It was soon found.
The scene of the accident was a curve,
and the rail nearest .to the river had
been forcibly removed. The miscreant
—for it was soon seen that the villains
had been there—had fortunately been
ignorant of mechanics. He had taken
up the rail by the ravine—for .I have
omitted to mention that there was a
steep precipice at this point—and natu
rally through that the train, with its
load of human life, v. - ouldhave tumbled
over. The rail next to the river was
the "safe" one, and so the engine simp
ly_pleughed along towards the scarp of
the mountain.

I was, Who drove the train? and one or

me in possession of this important fact,
that the driver of the coal-engine trains

was one and the same person. "Now,
I then, for the driver," said I, and march
led to his lodgings. I found him a qui

He thought there had been one, a
carpenter? but, quoth the driver com
placently smoothing an incipient

"Where does this carpenter live?"
•'About half a mile from the farm,"
he answered ; and with that I left, fully
satisfied now that I was on the trail.
The morning after, and at the scene
of the accident, I had found a large
thick stake, cut evidently from the ad
joining wood. This had been used to
pry up the rail from the sleeper. Ex
amining it minutely, I saw that it had
been cut recently, and that with a
So, with this ideauppermost, I started
ou the mission, and after a pleasant
drive reached the little hamlet where
the carpenter lived. This district vs as
very mountainous and rugged ? and as
I mounted a winding road towards the
house, I could hear the monotone of the
river at which so narrow an escape had
taken place. Yonder was the scene.
Was the the criminal here? The door
was soon opened to my knock, and by
the carpenter himself, a cool, self-pos
ssed young man, Who seemed to read
my errand in a moment, yet asked me
what I wanted; without the change of
a muscle. I entered into his little room,
and told him I had a suspicion he could
enlighten me on the case of therailway
1` , :o, he couldn't; he had heard of it,
like the re2t.
N.Vould be allow me to ~ learch him?
Certainly; and forthwith various ar
ticle were in my hand. On his person
I found two pocket knives, each of
which would have served to cut the
stake. As I paused a moment, and
held them in my hand, he heedlessly
observed: "That knife" (pointing to
one) "I only put into my pocket this
looming, as I generally keep it at home."
I opened the knife'. the blade was
notched ; and looking up from the ar
ticle to the carpenter, caught his eye.
We knew one another's thoughts in an
instant; but he accompanied me tran
quilly enough to the town. At the trial,
the knife figured in evidence; various
corroborating matters satisfied the jury
of his guilt ; he Was found guilty, and
sentenced to seven years' transportation.
It turned out afterwards that he loved
the farm-girl, and was incited by jeal
ousy to the act which so nearly caused
so 1 rightful an accident. Forall I know,
the driver still dwells in single blessed
ness, for themaid is still a maid, as to
sy-cheeked tis ever, and, it is said, is
waiting for the carpenter's return !

On t e 22,1 o I Jane we volunteered in,
teamsters in a train consisting of 52
wagons, loaded with machinery for
quartz and saw mills, belonging to a
company gotten up in our honest Qua
ker Slate. Our trip, though tedious, was
not monotonous, owing to the Sioux
and Cheyenne Indians who, having
lately been provided with arms and mu
nitions by Fort Officials, were very an
noying—our train being attacked sev
eral times, though fortunately without
loss of life. Our train was the only one
that accomplished the trip via the Bow
man cut-oil without losing from one to
twenty npen each, killed by the Indians.
Nearly Avery day we passed newly;
made graves, with headboards stating
that the occupants tell victims to Indian
barbarity; and in many instances, the
wolves having exhumed the remains,
the clothing 4.. e. scattered about afforded
a most melancholy spectacle. We ar

most tedious and clangorous tiip, and

The company in whose employ we

from remains a mystery. The mill will
have the capacity of crushing forty tons
of quartz per day, which the General

hole ,of unknown depth—rat in the
trap of course: you pull gently on the
chain to test if the critter be alive, and,
as there is no responsive kick or strug
gle, decide that he is dead. Now; to at
tempt lifting the trap by its chain is to
pull a leg off and lose the rat ; so you
bare your arm to the shoulder and com
mence following the icy chain with
your hand, down, down among roots,
grass, tangled rushes and mud, until at
la.t you have hold of the trap, feeling
your way to the animal with some mis
giving, when, presto! you get a sharp
nip on and into your index finger, and
your half frozen hand is withdrawn
suddenly—rather. The critter is lively
as a cricket, and pugnacious as a prize
tighter, and you go to the bank, some
twenty rods off, cut a red willow hook,
and finally succeed in dragging the un
fortunate rodent front his mysterious
hole, entangled with a half bushel or
so of grass, roots, and mud, knock him
°lathe head, bag him, close the house,
and go through a series of insane gym
ua.stics for the next five minutes to keep
from freezing, before going to the next
trap. The programme varies at differ
ent houses, as do the houses also. Some
of the animals refuse utterly to drown
themselves, but stay on the small
shelves and partitions where they sleep
in winter, tearing the houses in pieces,
and fighting the tray with tooth and
nail—these give the least trouble.—
Others drown themselves heroically and
are fished up with some difficul£y, while
a few are found dead and dry in the
trap, resting on the little shelves afore
said, having perished through lack of
constitutional vitality." I think if I
were a rat and had the misfortune to be
caught by the hind leg in my own houSe,"
I should be found dead on my Shelf.—
Many of the varmints leave a that in
the trap and escape on three'legs, while
ii is not unusual to catekone which
has lost a leg or even two. _as for the
mink, he is easily caught and gives but
little trouble ; the only difficulty being
to find him. he having been followed
and trapped on every lake and Aver
from lowa to Hudson's Bay, until he
has:, been nearly exterminated.

The above will giVe you some notion
Or me way that i am spending my time,
mixed in with hunting of course; and
I have little more to sky except that
when the weather gets a little harder I
Neill make out a report on Minnesota:
its advantages and disadvantages toand
for the settler." I have been here long
enough to find out some points both for
and against it as a point of emigration,
which I will try to set forth in shape
for publication at no distant day, and
impartially, I didn't intend to fill this
sheet with notes on trapping, but I
got started I% that task and couldn'.l,
intr. You ought to see the lake, on the
shores of which I am living at present.
With its two high wooden islands, its
handsomely timbered, gravelly shores
and deep clear waters, it makes a moat
enchanting picture in warm weather,
and now that it is frozen solid—oh, for
my skates, which I, like a font left at
home. Boating and fishing can be had
in 4 great perfection in Minnesota as
in any place I ever saw., and that is no
small inducement with some in choos
ing- a location. My health has improved
much since I came here. Give my re
garde to all friends. _

F'2 , JI.DIEFtti GF TIOGA : Those noble
men who, during our late struggle, vol
untarily sacrificed their domestic wel
fare and interest, and went forth to bat
tle aztumt the enemies of our country,
faithfully represent those noble spirits
who unfurled the Star Spangled Ban
ner, crowned it with the American
Eagle, rind bore it triumphantly amid
the smoke of many a.liard fought battle
field in seventy-six, and handed it
down to us as the guardian of the prin
ciples of Union and Liberty which they
so gallantly maintained.
6oldiers of Tioga. Let us gather to
dether in one crand Brotherhood of sol
iers, as many of our brethren have
throughout the State. Lodges of the
" Legion of Honor" are springing up
all over the State; the Legion is per
manently organized, and he who now
addre.-ses you. has been appointed to or
ganize this county. I now call upon
you to " rally around the standard,"
and join the League of Honor. It
would be an honor to ourselves and to
our comrades wherever we may meet
them. It is founded upon the princi
ples of Liberty and Union, charity and
prosperity to all self-sacrificing patriots,
and their helpless dependents if such
there be among us. IT no one etses will
honor us let us honor owrselres, and let
it be said of every soldier of Tioga coun
ty, at least that he is proud to own that
be has been an American soldier.
"Oh patriot hearts wipe out the stain,
ii.diao loin year hearts sad 'teach 01144 More,
And let notommon soldier blush
To own the loyal blue be wore.
Shout long and loud the victory won,
By chief and leader staunch and true,
But don't forget the boys that fought.
Hurrah for the comma» soldier too."
Now brother soldiers, I call upon one
of you at least in every township where
there are soldiers residing, to address
me. I will furnish you with any In
formation desired. Authority will be
given to one man in every township to
organize a Lodge. Come up to the work
like men, and let us have our county
organized by February atleast.
The priu?iples of the League will be
fully explainal to any one who may ad
dress me. It is secret in its organiza
tion, but it iv not poii.eicat. Those ad
dres,-incr, tile «'lll please inclose a stamp,
but if tliey donut feel disposed to do so,
leave it out and t will address them all
the same lam fellow soldiers,
Very respectfully,
