May 2d, 1838. regular session full Board nifcft in board present, w en the iollowins cle- cision was niuue m regard to the Koacl Machines: Upon a thorough test of both ma chines the board decided that the differ ence in the merits of, and general rcsultt of the two machines wurc of so small importance, that they deem it inexpedi ent to express their preference in regard to which make would answer thir pur pose best, and therefore agreed t pur chase two of each firm and pay' the same price therefor. The proposition wag accepted by each company represented, and thereupon the clerk was ordered to draw a warrant on the rgsji fund in favor of each company fer the nmwunt stipulated in the contract, to pay for the machines now on hands, and to draw warrants on the same fund for the same amounts upon the receipt of the- other tv machines, at Plattsmouth, with all freight charges pre-paid by the the said companies.

" May 3d, 188?. Board met pursuant to adjournment, full board present, when the following order was made: Wiiekeas, The county commissioners have reason for believing that a large amount of the real estate taxes appearing delinquent on the tax lists for the years 185S to 1807 inclusive, may have been paid and such payments not cradited on said tux lists, owing to the irregularities in conducting the affairs of the county treasurer's office during said years, and Whkleas, Said real estate has since that time largely passed into the hands of pers'.nis who were not aware of such taxes standing unpaid on said real estate at tinife of pun-lmsing ths!me, therefore the county treasurer is hereby authorized to receive" and receipt for unpaid taxes of said years without interest or costs. The annual settlement of Henry Stoll, of road district No. 42, was approved and allowed $35.

The street crossing on the corner of Main and Third streets is in a very bad condition and. not tit for people to cross on. Since the late ruius tiie hole in the corner of the roads is filled with water and is even unfit for vehicles to cross. Such matters should be looked into by the of ficials and th sooner the better. This is not the only place where the streets are in an almost impassable condition and .how much need of repairing. Ladies are afraid to attempt a crossing in some places unless some aid is near, and if nun can possibly transact their business on one side of the street they will never cross. It would be to the interest of the business men on either side to moye the town farthers toward improvements. The sooner operations are commenced, the better, for all will say that it is a disgrace to -a city with the business capacity and with the population of Plattsmouth to sec the city so far behind much smaller places in this one point. In a short tin;o if everything is left as it is at present, th- street car line of which the city is so proud of, will sink out of view, and the vehicles,' alas, there will be none seen on our streets. It was reported that while some people were passing the corner of Main and Third streets, that cries of help were heard and the people looking out to the muddy road saw a man's hat. Some of them believed the sound to come from under the hat. They contrived a way to reach the hat and lifting it, saw a man's head. Attempting to cross this man had stepped from the crossing and narrowly escaped a horrible death by drowning. The fireman's ball which is to be held at the opera house next Frida evening will be a grand success. The floor will be scrubbed and put in a first class condition, so that no fault can be found in this way and lovers of the dance will find no trouble in making the event one most enjoyable to themselves. As fr the parade and races we are not at present situated to give any ideas as to j what arrangements will be made. Should the weather continue rainy as it is at j present, of course it will be impossible for the races to take place on that day as at first arranged and will in all proba bility be postponed. Should the roads dry up before that time and leave open a possible chance to make a parade, the ar rangements will not be "interfered with and all will go on smooth as at first an ticipated, i In the May number of Woman, Julia Ward Howe has a thoughtful paper on "How to Extend tho Sympathies of Women," in which she shows how true education enlarges the natural limits f feminine character, and urges women to emancipate themselves from intellectual narrowness. The first paper on Woman's Clubs, by Olive Thorne Miller, is finely illustrated with engravings of the prom inet members of Sorosis and the Meridian Club", which form the subject of this artiel.

The reply of Senator Yoorhecs to Sen ator In galls reminds us of the Indiana democrat who invited the republicans of his township to meet him in debate, agree ing to discuss, with them, the politi cal issues of th' d:y. Several republicans responded and at the opening one of them asserted that the rebellion had been crush ed and the war had not been a failure. The democrat arose and, in answer, said "That is a d d lie, now state your next proposition." The only reply made to Senator Installs was "Malicious lies" state your text proposition. Express. From delegates who attended the re publican jounty convention, at Weeping W.ter, Saturday, we learned that It was one of the best ever held in Cass county nnd while there was at one time a ripple in the proceedings, the rapids were soon passed and smooth water found to the en I of the trip, every ono leing satisfied with the results, and the delegates going home resolved to give a more hearty and earnest support to tho grand old party than ever before, Editok JIeu vi d Phase ssy there will be a basket picnic on May 23d at the grove adjbiniug the old fair grounds, under the auspices of the three lodges, A.

Mt. Cakmei., Pa., May 7. Between 10 and 11 o'clock last night a terrible acci dent occured on the Philadelphia & Read ing railroad, between this place and Lo cust Gap. A freight train consisting of seventy-fire cars, bound for "Williams- port, became disconnected by the break ing of a coupling, and the engine and three cars ran half a mile beforo the crew discovered the divided train. The first section awaited the arrival ef the second at the foot of a heavy grade, and the two braksmeu losing control of the second section, it dashed into the first, causing an explosion in the third car, which was loaded with Dupont powder. At the scene of the accident the railroad runs along a steep hill, at the bottom f which stood a row of houses occupied by the. Philadelphia & Reading coal and iron company's employes. On the hillside stood the little cottage occupied by John Quinn and family of four children, two boys and two girls. The force of the ex plosion wrecked the buildings, seventeen in all, and stoves set fire to tho ruins. Quinn and his two little girls burned to death. The two boys escaped with burns. Siman Kirwiek's family consisted of Mary and "Willie Cayanaugh, adopted children, aged respectively 8 and 14 years, Alice Kerwick, aged 5, and his wife and new born babe. Kerwick carri ed his wife from the burning building, but the children were burned to death. Thirty persons were injured, the most neriously bein Mrs. Miles Dougherty, leg broken, and bruised and cut.
