Fatal Railroad AcciDEST.-i-Pitts-burg,
September 24. A Chronicle special,
from IWVpr P;il!. P'i. .'nv A trnin
containing jotiinaljsts going to Cleveland ;
via the Pittsburg and Lako Erie Railroad ;
ran into a hand cur on Beaver Run Ijridge, '
about 8 o'clock this morning, killing four
men outright and injuring- two others, !
one of whom will die. The men tvere ;
carjicuters working on the railroad bridge i
at Beaver Falls and were on their wav to !
work. One of t lie men on the hatid car
fell on the track and had his'head sever
ed from his bodv. Another was torn to
pieces, his remains being scattered alt
over the front of the locomotive, and
three others were daslied on the track be
low, a distance of fifty feet, two being
instantly killed and the other so severely
injured that he cannot recover. The
sixth luid hs ler iniured and the seventh
man escaped unhurt. The train was im
mediately stopped and Drs. SmithjTowu
send aud Ford, of Washington, who were
on the tiaiu, rendered all the medical aid
in their power to the injured.
Does-tliQ, Draught do any Good?
Tha effect of a season of long continu- '
ed drought is s improve the fertility" of.
thcTsoil. 'During such a season the water
iu the soil is continually rising to the
surface by capillary attraction and is
there evaporated. It is precisely tho re
verse of the leaching process.- Tod much
rain passing down thiough an open soil,
has the effect of leaching out the inorgau
ic'elements and carrying them down be
yond the reach of the roots of the plants.
This of course has the effect of impover- i
ishiug the soil by depriving it of those
elements necessary to tho growth and
maturity of plants. On Ihe other hand
when 3 drought sets in the moisture from
below which hold in solution small por-
tions of potash, soda, magnesia and
phosphoric acid commences to rise, and
as it evaporates from the surface it leaves
behind it in the soil near the surface
those inorganic elements, Just as salt wa-j
ter when evaporated will leave th .salt
bchind. Iu both cases pujyithe pure wa
ter escapes. All matters hold in solution
remain. The effect of drought therefore
is to bring np from the subsoil the ele
ments mentioned and to deposit j them
near the surface for the ue,df plants. It
follows from this that soils are improved
by drought,-provided the amount ofwa
ter necessary to the growth of a crop is
forthcoming.. All of this goes to prove
that the soils of the drought stricken sec
tions arp now in a good condition to re
ceive the Fall 6owiug of rye, oats and
wheat witlrlhe promise of a remunera
tive return. " Sow ryo on sandy land and
oats or wheat on stiffer lands. The ryo
will afford excellent pasturejbr cattle or

Oar Troops at Yorktown.
From the News & Observer,
Day by day the prospects grow bright-
er for a splendid appearance of North f
Carolina troops at the grand celebration
at Yorktown. Adjutan t, General Jouea is
. , . eilaed in makiu" arrange-
. ,u in raaiciu arrange ,
t meut for the appearance of the Guard
there. The display will bo in every re-1
ifipect creditable to the State. The troops
are being admirably equipped, in a style j
uot surpassed in any btate in the Union.
Thug far the following companies have
reported to the Adjutant-General as iu
readiness to go to Yorktown :
Of the First Regiment Kaleigh Light
Infantry, . Goldsgoboro Hides, Orange
y. , -V. 1 n , ... . .
Elm City ltiflenien and Hamilton Guards
are still iu doubt about going, but it is
hoped will go. The Kinstop, Rifles decline

Of the Tliird Regiment The Winstou
Light Infantry, Alebemarlc Guards, Dur
ham Light Infantry and Rockingham
Guards have reported as ready to go ;
also a platoon of t lie Roanoke Light in
fantry. The Henderson Light Infantry
will probably go. The Guilford Grays
will not attend.
Of the Second Battallion The Iiedell
Blues, Slioe Heel Rifles and the Salisbury
Rifles have reported themselves in readi
ness to go. The Cleaveland Guardsand
the Southern Stars will not attend.
Thus out of the thirty-one infantry
companies in the Guard, nineteen com
panies are certainly going, aud probattly
three others. The companies will aver
age thirty-sis men each, and the whole
force yjU be from 700 to 800 meu.
The Rice Chop in Nortii Carolina.
We learn from oue of the most exteu-
6ive planters on the rjver that the injuries
to the rice crop feared from the effect of
the storm are found .to bo fully us severe
as was at first feared. Rico cutting is
now going on on the rivers aud it is
. therefore easy to ascertain tho extent of
the loss. Much of the rice was blown
clear off the stalks and was scattered on
; the giound, while iu other instances full
heads were prostrated in sucu a manner
that much will be lost in the cut
Our informant, however, thinks tb
per ceut. will cover the loss aud this may
bo evualized'by an increase iu the price
The highest price obtained hero last year
for lowland rice was about $1.40 per
bushel, but it is said that offers of $1.50
have been made already this season; The
disasters to tho crop in South Carolina
will, of course, have no effect on the
market. It is expected that the first
rough rice will reach the market thissea-
son about the tOth of October. Wilminq-

to themselues to be liberal in support of
''decent and just papers,-', and should not
foster those sensational sheets which deal

he left the Howell domicile, having sto

hied away after him. He had a. great
curiosity to investigate the wealth of the
country and asked who were the wealth
iest people around Lenoir. He carried a
bundle of papers describing all the phases
of the Thompson murder in Alexander,
and seemed to think that "hanging aud
burning were too good'' for the perpetra
tors. WHAT HAS HE POSE T
Various surmises gradually took shape
in the neighborhood as to what crime this
wandering vagabond was guilty of. The
most general opinion was that lief was
ono of the gang that killed Miss Thomp
son in Alexander. Whether there is any
foundation for this belief, we are unable
to say, but it is based upon the following:
In dealing with John Adams, ono of the
supposed accessories, great caution was
observed in order, it was said, "not to
scare off others thought to be implicated J
aud it has been stated iu some of the pa
pers that there was oue man yet loose
supposed to be iu Texas, who held Miss
Thompson while Church committed the
murder. It is believed

I ceased, and he was never seen except up-
on one or two occasions, when he ran
and made his escape to the laurel. Cer
tain circumstances led to the conclusion
that Jane Howell was carrying food to
the outlaw, and
on Hibriten, was fixed upon as his lair.

If he were found to be hidden in the cave
he would have to be starved, out, as an
inmate of the cave would kill all assail
ants who tried to enter one by one. The
suspicious conduct of this man render it
probable that he is a fugitive from jus
tice. but whether or not ho is guilty of
this or that crime, is all surmise. Lenoir

The recent robbing of a train on the

Sixteen men are believed to have been

a " '
a way to stop crime, and it shonld be put
into execution. Let the capital criminal
be tried withiu thirty days after the of
fence, and if condemned, let him be exe
cuted three davs thereafter, bociety is
not bound to allow criminals ample time
to prepare for death. If it is, it ought to
give every murderer at least twenty
years, for he needs it. Society should
take the steps for preventing crime, and
if criminals understand that death cer

oenate must be organized before new

includes the election of officers. With
out officers there can be iu fact no or

dent! or Speaker or Chairman is es
sential to organization. The second
point is, that the Democrats will
doubtless elect one of their party

be the choice probably The Demo

and absurd parade of so-called politi
cal generosity aiul magnanimity. The
New. York Times is the ablest of Re
publican papers. It takes this view,
and tt is the correct one, and should
silence partisan growlers. It says :
"These three Senators, however,
cannot be sworn in until there is a
President of the Senate to accept the
oath or affirmation required of them
by law. The first business of the
Senate will be to choose a President
and in this the Democrats will have
a clear majority. This done, the new
members will be sworn in open Sen
ate, according to law, the oath being
administered by the President of the
Seuate. The newly elected President
of the Senate may be sworn in by the
Secretary of the Senate or by the
eldest Senator (in continuous service)
men present, lint, although a Vice
President of the United States may be
sworn into office by the Secretary of

the swearing in of a Senator bv anv
