It was during the litter part of the

days, having to run at any moment,

reat danger, not only from the poor
condition of the track, but from the
guerrillas. Night and day we were
liable to be called into active service,
to we seldom enjoyed a ecatfou of rest
even when it oatnc, briny, as we were,
in comttaut drrd of call to our post.

UtIlehifeTorTefrebwienfev msl of
the uienukiog their meals in the car,
VfWu a "ingle engine steamed out from
the side track on (o the main road.
Tiii! engine was one of the largest on
the road, and was called tho Vulture.
She was a most powerful machine, and
oould well vie in point of speed with
uuy other one of our engine. My
LHisher," howover, was considered
without doubt, to be the fastcbt trav
eler on the road, though not so pow
erful by far as the Vulture.
The euginecj of the Vulture was a
oro, surly fellow, who was looked on
with suspicion by many of the officers ,
but as we were short of experienced
hands, and oould ill afford to lose him,
be was allowed to keep his place. On
this night I noticed that be seemed
uncommonly surly, and 1 determined
to watch him, especially as be was go
ing up the road too, and would imme
diately precede me. 1 felt that souio
thisg was wrong, and this impressiou
waa couBrmcd when I went over to
the Vulture and saw how hig her
guage stood. Inoticed also, that Nick

It isnecssary to state here, that a
cnuplo of long trains full of horses
were expected down the track that
night, and fhad received orders to
awitch off and wait for them at the
second station above Clinton.
Weil we stated Nich aad I ho

Wc bad no conductors on our road io
those times, and all responsibility for
the safety of the traia devolved on the
edgineer. I felt the responsibility of
my position, but I knew that two full
trains were coming down the road,
and I believed that unless I did some
thing to prevent it, Nick would cease
the destruction of both. I had aeea
him drink time and agaia from a bot
tle he had in the engiae, I had aoticed
how he threw the wood into the al
ready overheated furnace, 1 had seen
him fai-b-n down the escape valve, and
1 knew he was bent on something
We were now dashing along at forty
miles an hour, and many heads were
thrust from the car windows to see
what might be the matter, but not

eaid to my fireman, "and ace me

.Not a word did tho faithful darkey
say, but he set his teeth firmly and
tosfced in stick after stick of wood,
while I closed every valve and care
fully watched tho guage.
It was u fearfully grand thing to be
tearing through the darkness, with
nothing between us and eternity save
two tbin bars of iron, and we felt all
the grandeur of it, too. No fear held
us in check, for both of us had been
in peril before on that road, and on
that very engine.
An unknown something told me that
should soon know what Nick intend
ed to do lie was putting in wood by
the cord, it seemed, and crowding on
steam as though he was mad. I felt
it to be &n awful moment, and yet my
heart did not fail me, nor did I allow
a nervo to treiublc. The engineer,
whose w bole life consists of one un
ending peril, soon learns to keep bis
nerves under control.
We were now approaching a bridge
which crowed a wide, deep stream.
The rivor flowed under this bridge not
more than three feet below the track,
and the i-inirturc itself wai considered
unsafe, 60 much so that all trains went
over it a slowly aa a man usually
Both engines were on the bridge,
which shook like an aspen. Suddenly
Nick pulled the whistle-string of the
Vulture, and a loud, unearthly shriek
echoed Iroui hill to hill, as tho long
pent-up steam found escape there. 1
strained my eyes ahead, and saw a
boat containing two men waiting near
the bridiio, on the bosom of the river.
The next moment Nick sprang on the
the top of his tender. In his hhnd he
beM a rope, whieh I believed iras
fastened at the other end to the lever.
1 was right. Ho gave a tug at the
rope, jerking the lever way out, and
the next moment dove into the water.
With a bound that made the bridge
bend, and nearly threw her from the
track, the Vulture shot forward and
went tearing up tho road.
"Ah; I see it now!" I exclaimed,
"Dan cut loose from tho traiu; we
must catch that engine or blow our
In an instant my order was executed,
and I pulled the steam valve wide
open. Forward we darted, like a bolt
from a thunder cloud, making every
timber on the engino crock, and
th owing ourselves on the wood in the
tender. Ou, on we dahed at such a
rate of sjeed that it nearly took away
our breath, over rails and cross ties,
n grades aud down them, around
curves,. over bridges, through cuts aud
tunnels, and along the straight track.
The Vulture tore over the road like an
enraged fiend, aud we after her at only
about two hundred yards distance.
"Cram in more wood, aud pour oil
on the Jre, Dan. for wf must over
take the other engine if we would save
Abe lives of those on the down trains."
I could make tbe engine go no faster,
but I could see that we were very
slowly gainiug on tho Vulture. A lit
tb more steam and we would be able
to overtake her. On wo dashed, the
wheels revolving like lightning, and
the whole engine rockisg in a terrible
manner. iMeveruia tnaeuae uiw
fore. The machinery and axels were
so hot that I feared something would
give way every minute, aad I knew
that if a single bolt should break it
would hurl us into eternity. The
boxes under the tender smoked as if
on fire, the furnace was red hot, the
brass work iu the engineer house was
at a white beat, every curve might be
our laet, for we were in danger of run
ning off every moment, and our sensa
tions were eueh at no pen can de
scribe. We had traveled over ifteen miles
of road in twelve ruinates, aad were
now only about tea feet behind the
iron fiend we were atr. It had been
a temhW ride bat we were tatt ap
proaching or goal.

Jost as I did so, I heard the escape
valve iy opea oa the "Dasher," then
the whistle peeled forth iu note, and
I saw that Daa was letting off steam
and "checkiag ap."
Springing iprward I jammed hard
back on the lever, threw opea the
furnace door, opened every e;cap
valve aad took such other measures
as were necessary to check the epeed,
and get the boiler into a sate condition.
When I bad done these things I care
lessly glanced up the road, and there,
not a mile away, I could see the lights
of the approaching traia. I blew tbe
stopping signal twice, and heard it an
swered, before I felt that my night's
hard work was done that the trains
were out of danger.
They came up to us and stopped.
Dan and 1 told our stories to the as
tonished passenger, and were thanked
time aud again for what we bad done.
Both of us, though, were so near worn
out that men were deputed in our
places, and the engines run back with
out any labor of ours, save that of
overseeing the work. We did not,
however, get away until almost morn
ing, so badly had the chase injured
both engines, and it took oceans of oil
so to speak to get them in running
When we got back to the bridge
where I had left my train, we found
Nick and the two other fellows under
guard. They had been caught trying
to get away, and we found that the
whole thing was a well laid plan for
the destruction of the two volunteer
The two other fellows were Nick's
accomplices, who had been on hand to
pick him out of the water. Nick's
dive did not injure him much, and ho
was aiterwarus court-martialed and
shot as a deserter and spy.
Afterward, when the "Da'shcr" was
smashed up by being run off of a
trestle work. I took charge of the
Vulture, and made mfny trips in her.
It is needless to say that Dan and I
were allowed a wiiolo week of recrea
tion after our hard night' k work chas
ing the runaway iron-horto.
LASOS AKS CAPITOL.
The following is an extract from
Senator Carpenter's speech of July 4th
at Janesville, Wis :
"Tho Declaration of Independence
promises equality in regard to the pur
$uit of happintu. Labor is the source
of.all prosperity and happiness ; and
equality in the pursuit of these re
quires that every man shall be equally
protected in respect to the fruits of
his labor. This presents one of the
most difficult problems of modern civ
ilization an equitable adjustment be
tween labor and capital. Take, for
illustration, our inter-State commerce.
Tbe farmer raises wheat ; the railroad
transports it to an Kastero market;
commission men handle 'and sell it to
the consumer. Now the price which
a bushel of wheat will command in the
Now York market ought, upon equit
able principles, to be distributed be
tween the farmer who produces, the
railroad company which transports,
and the commission merchant who re
ceives and sells it, in the exact propor
tion in which each has contributed to
the general result So io regard to
any article manufactured. What the
'article is worth, when completed.
ought to bu divided amoug all those
who have contributed to its comple
tion, in the exact proportion of the
contribution of each to the final result.
But this has never been tbe case.' La
bor, in all countries, and at all times,
has been the prey of capital, and how
to relieve it from this oppression, and
make all men equal in the pursuit of
happioeNti, by nocuriug tu each tbe ex
act and ju?t fruit of his labor, is the
great problem to be solved before the
pledge made in the Declaration of In
dependence can be fully performed.
This problem is replete with difficul
ties, and ita solution requires a reor
ganization of the business of the coun
try. It must be attempted, too, with
out the aid of precedents, and carried
on against the efforts of capital, which
is alaays alert and thoroughly organ
ized. Tbe legislation of every country
h s favored capitol at the expense of
labor. Capital is protected and labor
is taxed. There is a bond of sympathy
between the rich, and the capital of
New England sympathises and co-operates
witn capital in every State of
the Union. The attempt recently made
in Congress to atrip fkmi our national
banking system its feature of monopo
ly touched in a tender spot every
banker in the wad.
I am happy to say to you, farmers
of Bock county, what I did not know
when I penned this address. By a
dispatch I have received from Madison
thia morning, I am informed that the

Daria, of the Supreme Comrt, Jadge

are a few of the disadvantages aader
which labor is entering into a contest
which is destined to sheke this cooa
try and the world. The Irst victories
will bu on the side of capital, but the
final result, in thio country et least, is
not doubtful. Sooner or later the
people will open their eyes and be
wine; and evidenoes are multiplyiag on
every hand that tbe unjust exactions
of capital will be resisted until they
shall be abandoned.
The organisation of the trades anion
reaching to tvery State end Territory;
the more recent and far more power
ful organization of farmers to resist
the exactions of corporations engaged
in tbe carrying business; the growing
opposition of the masses of the people
to monopoly io all it forms, and to
legislation for the benefit of special
classes and particular business inter
ests; all those things betoken the join
ing of an issue, and tbe beginning of a
contest to settle the question whether
tbe laborer shal1 be permitted to enjoy
the fruits of his toil.
Whom the gods mean to destroy
they first make mad. ' The petulance
and rage which capital is now mani
festing at the firct steps taken by labor
for its own protection, indicate that a
monopoly is marked for destruction.
Tbs cheering aspect of this contest is
that labor outnumbers capital at tbe
poll, and will ultimately assert its
power. Capital, if wise, would yield
gracefully, and deal justly; and if, re
fusing to do this, it shall finally be
shorn of some of its just rights, it will
have iu own obstinacy to thanks for
The first attempt of the people of
Wisconsin to relieve themselves from
the oppression of monopolies end fix
within reasonable limits the cost of
tram-porting our products to the sea
board, has been met with defiance and
insurrection ; and our railroads are
operated to-day iu opposition to a valid
law. The peuple are told that railroad
companies will submit to reasonable
regulations, but they, and not the peo
ple, must be the judges of what are
reasonable regulations. This will not
do. Tbe sovereignty of the State must
control its corporations, aud tbe people
of the State, through legislatures of
their choice, may, and must, determine
what is reasonable comiiensation to be
charged by railroad companies. And
if the corporations persist in their at
tempt to rule or ruin, they will only
succeed in ruining themselves.
I have referred to this subject, not
for the purpose of arousing feeling
uf on a local question, but becauc it
i one of the elements, aud one of tbe
earliest manifestations of a contest
that is looming up and beginning to
darken the land. The people of the
whole country are looking anxiously to
Wisconsin, to see whether in this first
controversy between the people and
the corporations, which is only a
brauoh of tho general Btruegle between
labor and capital, the people or tbe
corporations, labor or capital will tri
umph; whether a board of directors
iu Wall street have more power than
the Legislature of the State.
Upon this contest depends many
mighty questions ; whether under our
free institutions this government of
tho people, by the people, for the peo
ple, tho rich can so manage as to fat
ten forever upon tbe fruits of labor;
whether the rich are to be forever
growing richer, and tbe poor poorer;
whether they who produce the wealth
of the land must continue to live in
poverty and want, while they who
produce nothing aro to riot ia wealth
and luxury; whether, in a word, to
quote from our text, all men are to be
made equal in the pursuit of happiness
bv enjoying the legitimate fruits of
A few words as to the manner of
conducting this contest. They who
stand upon tbe law must concede to
their opponents the protection of the
law. They who demand justice must
render justice. In ttiis unexampled
uprioiog of the people prudence should
control. No oae derires to ruin tail
road compaaieor other capitalists. It
is simply iu tended that if they will not
act justly they shall be made to. If
railroad companies will not fix reason
able rates, reasonable rates shall be
fixed for them ; and when a law is
made it shall be observed ; and its ob
servance sbali be enforced as the ob
servance of other laws Li enforced, by
tbe judicial arm of tbe government.
The whole people are interested to
discountenance and prevent any law
less aad violent proceedings against
corporations. If they see fit to violate
the law let us obey the law, and com
pel them also, aad compel them by
legal means. Rendering to them full
protection for all their just rights, the
people may demand the observance of
their owa; aad thus we shall ooatieee
to be a people governed aot, by vio
lence, bat by law.
