All our Representatives- Good and True I
Thin Sarpy County, will b again, ably
represented. Touching her immediate
interests, the will be as she always liai
been, a unit. Conscious of her united
strength, and consequent influence, she
can afford to smile pleasantly at the sneers

our Representatives, leaving them to
the dictates of their unbiised judgment,
to labor unitedly and earnestly for the
bet interest of their constituents, as well
as for that of the whole Territory.
The Election is over, the excitement
subsided, and the glory achieved. Can
didates for the sufferages of the dear peo
ple were numerous, and, they with their
friends entered the canvass, determined
upon victory, with an enthusiasm that
knows no tire; and some of them,
with a treachery and skull-duggery
worthy only of infamy and disgrace. In
the content no party lines were drawn,
each of the candidates set up his peculiar
claims and raced it on his own individual
merit. Concerning the merits of the
Representatives elect, very little need be
Gen. Ltavitt L. Bowen who is well
known at home and abroad, has again
been called to his seat in the Council
Chambei, by the people of Sarpy County.
The Gen. came here at an early day and
identified his interests with this place. In
the darkest hour of our history he was
the unflinching friend of the interests of
Sarpy. When strong inducements were
offered elsewhere; and when the people
of this county least expected it, he come
boldly forth as her champion and advo
cated her rights and her interest.
In the past election, almost every arti-
fue was resorted to, in order to insure his
defeat. His past legislative acts were de
nounced, his motives impugned, and his
character traduced. Certain home influ
ences, aidded and abetted by a foreign
enemy were all arrayed against him in
order to accomplish the one great and de
termined purpose of defeat. But thanks to
the prosiding genii of destiny, the efforts
of his opponents have all been thwarted,
the pit dug for him, constitutes the grave
of their inglorious defeat.
lion, anas a. ainckland, has again
been endorsed by a majority of the voters
. of his own County. Several of the tickets
however, having his name upon them
were thrown out by the board of canvass'
ers, there being more than four names
upon them. This occured doubtless
through the carelessness of the voters, or
the intrigue of designing enemies. After
tnrowing out tnese votes, the nrst news
from the Platford precinct, elected Mr
Strickland by twelve majority; aubse
quently the number was reduced to two,
and finally the official returns show his
defeat by one vote. The certificate ha
' not yet been awarded to either Mr Wat
ties or Mr. Strickland. We presume the
. case will be contested.
Concerning Mr. S. very little need be
said. He was one of the earliest settlers
of the Territory, and is identified from
the first with its legislative history. A

B. P. Rankin hat received a very hand
tiro endorsement by the voters of Sarpy
County, and will, we doubt not, be true to
her best interest. The attributes of ener
gy and perseverance for which the Col.
is so noted, deserves to be rewarded.
These attributes, in their nature are God
like, in the demon they can hardly be con
templated without admiration. They give
to the warrior his crown, and encirclj the
head of the civilian with a halo that uei
ther envy nor malice can obscure. Dur
ing the present canvass, mountains have
melted before the energy end persever
ance of Col. R., and if his after-life con
tinues to exemplify the same characterist
ics, combined with integrity, be must rise
high in the zenith of political glory.

July 15, 1858.
Dear Brothur: The telegraph will
inform you of the terrible accident our
train met with last evening near this
olace. We left New York in the 5
o'clock r. m train, came on pleasantly
and safely until about 8 1-2 o'clock ; when
descending the heavy grade on tne west
side of the Shawangunk Mountains i per
ceived that we were moving at such a
fearful rate that 1 started once or twice
on a heavly descending grade. Within
two or three minutes after my fears be
came thus excited. I Nil a concussion as
if we were running over a slight obstruc
lion. Some little commotion ensued in
... .i .,.
our car, whicn was tne lourm irwn me
rear. A signal was made to the engineer
as soon as possible, but we had run a
mile or so before the train stopped. We
soon found that two cars had been detach
ed from the train. We ran back with
great apprehension, and our worst fear
were more than realized. The last two
cars were hurled down an embankment
forty feet, and were completely demolish'
ed. The groans and screams of the in
jured broke fearfully upon our ears in the
stillness of the evening. They were un
der the wreck, and strewed around the
scene of the disaster in awful confusion.
The moon was shining feebly, and by its
light, and that of a large fire which was
oon kindled, the wreck or. tne cars was
removed, and all that were living were
rescued. Three hours were spent in get
ting the suffering from beneath the ruins
of the cars and embankment, when, with
seven dead and forty, more or less sen
ouslv injured, the melancholy train moved
' : . a
on to this place. An engiue oau oeen pre
viously sent to Port Jervis, which return
ed to the scene of disaster with surgeons
and other aid. All the injured were
taken into the two hotels the Delaware

tons was placed on the brakes. Yet, al

Extraordinary PcaronANcis or a

blind horse which hud just previously been
detached from a cart in which he had
been hard at work hauling brick all day,
took fright and ran at a headlong pace
across Pennsylvania Avenue, at a short
distance east of the Cupitol ; when he ar
rived at the opposite side from whence
he started, he encountered a tree box,
which he tore down, together with the
tree inside it (a sapling some six inche
through at the trunk). This did not im
pede his progress in the least, for he con
tinued straight ahead, and the next thing
he encountered was a fourteen inch nail

Mr. John Smith ana his family. Incred

never slid a single word to us about print

ited to print the tickets for the various
csndidates, we informed the person that
brought us the " copy," that we should not
print Steinbergcr's tickets unless he would
hold himself responsible, or that
Steinberger would pay for printing. Hoi
(the individual that furnished the "copy,")
refused to hold himself response ; but
in the following evening, one of the can
didates vouched for the payment of print
ing Steinberger's tickets, and we acceed-
ed to his proposition ; but Steinberger
seeing an opportunity to make a little
capital, by becoming a martyr, set out like
a persecuted saint, to excite the sympa

of the affair, till finally he came near
believing his own fabrication, and for a
length of time, it is presumed, he imag
ined himself to be a greater martyr, even
than Martyn Luther. We are informed
that Steinberger went so far as to assert
that he tendered us money in payment for
his printing, whieh we rrjused. We con
sider it unnecesary to deny the charge,
as we should conclude that we were a fit
candidate for a mad hojse, to refuse
money, in thse hard times.
