Concord dispatch: Tlio express train
that left Boston at 7 Inst night met with n
terrible nccldcnt nenr Woodstock on the
Central Vermont railroad at nbout 2:30
this morning. The trnin started from this
city on time, but wob delayed at White
River junction, so it wax about an hour
and a half late when it left there. It con
sisted of a locomotive, bnggnge car, postal
car, two passenger coaches, and two sleep
ing cars, and was running at the usual
speed. When about 200 yards south of
the end of the Dick bridge nenr the- old
Windsor station, a broken rail was struck.
The locomotive, baggage carand postal car
broko nway from the rest of the train,
passing over the bridge in snfety: The rest
of tho train was thrown from the rails and
continued on tho roadbed until it enmo
near tho enil of tho bridge, but there It ran
over tho abutment and all of the curs fell
Into tho White river, some fifty feet below.
Tho gorge at this point in frightful, and
when tho cars went down there was a tec
rlblo crash. Ah soon as possible the do
tached part of the train was stopped olid
ran back to the scene of tho disaster, lho
screams of the injured were henrd. Assist
unco also came from tho peoplo living in
tho vicinity, and everything wnsdonoto
rescue and relievo the Injured. Soon niter
help arrived it was discovered that llrohnd
staited In tho first passenger coach, nnd

lug now horror to the already frightful
catastrophe. Thoso present wore power
less to stop tho fire, and devoted them
selves entirely In attempting to rescue
thoso imprisoned in tho wicck.
Tho rescuorH mot another and unex
pected obstacle in tho heat, which becamo
so Intense that they were obliged to re
linquish their efforts to savo tho sufferers,;
and wero compelled to retreat to a placo
safety for themselves, and to become un
willing and horror-stricken witnesses of
tho awful holacaust. In addition to this
nnd to add to the terrors and sufferings o!
tho passengors, the weather was intensely
cold nnd tho heroic rescuers were hlndorcd
thereby in their work. No water could be
obtained with which to check tho llaincs.
The ico was several inches thick on tho
river and there wore no appliances at hand
to raiso it.
Twenty-six persons, so far ns known,
wcro taken out nllvo from the cars which
wero burned. Two of these nro understood
to bo Wesson, tho pistol manufacturer of
Springfield, nnd Kd. Hrokelbnnks, a brako
nmn, but they died soon after. Tho two
passenger couches wero well filled, and
every berth in tho Huston sleeping car wns
occupied, and twelve aro from Springfield,
making tho total number of passengers in
the wrecked cars about olghty. This will
probably niako tho number of dead be
tween fifty or sixty. Tho bridge was be
twoen thirty and forty feet abovo tho
water, which was covered with thick Ice,
making it probable that tho death re
sulted from crushing and burning rather
than drowning. Several wcro penned up In
tho wreck who might have been rescued
nllvo but for tho Haines. Hrnkciunn Par
ker, who was on tho forward end of the
first passenger car, felt tho jar and saved
his life by jumping. Ho quickly secured
conveyance and carried tho news to White
Latku. Probably 8,000 peoplo visited
tho scciio of the railroad accident to-day.
Bovon or eight bodies were to-day Identified,
and many hoartrondlng scones wero wit
nessed. It Is utterly impossible to identify
more than tenor twelvool thoso recovered,
the clothing being cnliroly gono and the
bodies burned to a crisp. Conductor Stur
dovant died to-day and his body was taken
homo by a special train. Datango to roll
ing stock Is estimated at $!t0,000. A now
bridge will cost $20,000. Tho work of re
covering tho bodies lias been pushed vigor
ously all day. Tlio total number of bodies
recovered to day was live one woman and
four men. Willi theso tho number recov
ered thus far is thirty-two. H Is now be
lieved that the total number of souhi on
board the ill-fated train was oighty-ono. Of
this number only four aro unaccounted for.
Little idea can bo formed of tho dllllculty
in the way of obtaining a report of the ac
cident that would givu tho public a correct
idua of tlio condition of things. At tho
tlmo of the accident, and ever since then,
the thoriiioiueter has registered from 15 to
35 degrees below zero. Suffering from cold
was intense. 'I hero are only two or three
farm houses within two miles of the wreck,
and these aro tilled with wounded. Others

commerce that the union men havo struck.
The effect of It on ono road the Jersey Cen
tralIs the almost complete suspension of

the company was left at great disadvantage
and its Inability to deliver freight was the
eauso of much inconvenience to merchants.
Tlio next move on the part of the strikers will
he to induce the train men to come out, and
thus tie up the railroads centerimx on the .ler

the dock hands and firemen on tile fern lioats

Washington special: A (hitter of excite
meat was created this evening when it w'ns
announced that a number ot members of
the house of representatives, ropseseuting
both political parties, had determined to
hold a conference for the purpose of draw
ing resolutions ot Impeachment against Sec
rotary Manning for violating the laws ot
rongiess in his official acts. This movo
iiient is being promoted by the ultra silver
men and grows directly out ol what they
construe into a virtual acknowledgement
in his reply to the Weaver resolution, that
lie hud violated and intended to violate the
law reoulrinc that mutilated notes pre
sei ted for redemption shall bo redeemed by
notes of the same denomination. in
formation as to tho movement comesfrom
several members ol the house, who do
rlureil that there is no Buncombe iu it, but
that it is tlio result of a notions determina
Hon to resent a violation of tho law. In
addition to the ease with relation to tho
cancelling of treasury notes, it will be
charged that tlio law lias been repeatedly
violated bvu fuilllto to purchase S28.000.-

ehareed that, while the law is mandatory
that that amount shall bo purchased eaclt

make a purchase during any month when

Washington special: California congress
men say that it is a fact that Vrooman,
tho contestant of Hearst for the United
States senate, intends to contest the seat
of Mr. Hearst with the claim that ho
is himself entitled to the seat and that
the necessary papers to make good this,
claim will soon bo presented to tliosenato.
Tho ground on which this is to bo liasod
is that (.onio twenty member. of the legis
lature wero not entitled to vote and wero
not lawful members of the legislature in
that they wore not electe I in accordance
with the conditions prem i iliel by the con
stitution of thnt state, and that Vrooman
is the person who did receive the lawful
majority of tlio constitutional legislature.
Those who are informed as to the legal
basis for this claim, say that it is substan
tial enough to fiiiiiishground for a contest.
The senate commit to on elections iu tho
net congress will; therefore havo another
very important case. This committee will
probably be oue of the most important
committees of the Fiftieth congress. It
will have contested seats of Indiana and
California to consider, and possibly one
also from New Jeisev. It is certain that
Senator Harrison will make a contest of
the heat of Ttirpie of Indiana and the In
diana republican politicians here say they
are convinced that the senate will award
tho seat to HurrUon.

Whleh It Paid to the Memory of Gen. iMyan
an the Uth.
Tho Uth of February in tlieUnited States
Benate was given up to eulogies to tho late
Senator Logan. A number of speeches
being made, Mr. Cullom, of Illinois, lending
in the addresses.
He spoke of this being the third time in
tho present congress that the senate hud
been called upon to eulogize deceased mem
bers of the body. To-dny they met to lay
the tiibnto of their lovo on the tomb of
Logan. Hut yesterday it seemed that
Logan had stood among them in tlio full
Hush of robust manhood, n giant iu
strength nnd endurance, with a will of
iron and a constitution as tough as a
sturdy oak. Ho bad seemed tD hold
within his grasp more thnn threescore
years and ten allotted toman. No one
had thought in the same moment ot Logan
and death, tho two conquerors who hud
comefaco to face, and the weaker hud to
yield to the stronger. It hnd seemed as if
Logan could not die, and yet, in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye, Go I's finger
touched him and he slept. Almost without
warning ho had passed from strength to
weakness, from life to death and decay.
Had he lived until to day, til years, event- ,
fill years, would have rested their buidon
us a crown upon his head. After sketching
tlio principal events of Logan's life. Sen
ator Cullom spoke of his poverty, and said
Hint iu the hist presideiitiul campaign no
ghost of dishonor in his past had tisen up
and stood in his path. The eulogy closed
with the quotation: "Ilest, soldier, states
man, rest; thy troubled lire is o'er."
Senator Morgan spoke of the ptoceodingi
of tho day us not nil unmeaning ceremony.
Ho did not think of Logan us of a face that
hud passed away, but as a living, moving
energy still useful iu tlio great, purposes of
divino economy. In nil that Logan did
and wild he wns truly sincere. A resolutely
upright man, 110 llnessi characterized him,
but be was bold, pronounced, dignified,
generous, a true man.
Senator lidmuuds said that when he first
ninde the ncqtii'Jntunce of General Logan
(some twenty years ago) on 11 conference
committee of the two houses, ho was struck
with his characteristics of candor, of sim
plicity of his statements, of clearness of his
opinion, of that Anglo-Saxon persistency
in upholding opinions once formed that
Intel made our British nmestors and
American people the strongest forces iu
civilization of which there was any account
in tlio liistory of lho world. Gen. Logan
was entitled to the highest praiso for these
qualities. Now ho thought of him. not us
dead but promoted, leaving them to
mourn his departure, not for his sake, but
because of his conscious example His
conspicuous presence in public ufftiirs and
tho wisdom of his counsels wero withdrawn
nnd so he laid his small contribution on
Senator Mandeison spnkeof tho brilliant
military qualities of Gen. Logan. H liad
first seen him in tho front of the confeder
ate position on Kenesaw mountain. Tho
sight wns inspiration. Ho looked of his
ho'-so a part. His swarthy complexion,
his long black hair, stentorian voice, and
e.es that seemed to blaze with light of bat
tle, made a figure onco seen never forgotten.
In action he was the very spirit of war; his
mere presence would make a coward light.
Senator Allison said that tew men of this
generation iu this country hud ucliioved a
moro illustrious career than Gen. Logan.
Ho had linked his name impei isliubly with
tho military achievements that resulted in
tlio restoration of union and had borne
honorable part in tlio legislation which hud
seemed necessary for its perpetuation.
Senator Spooner spoke 01 the marvelous
personal magnetism and during of Gen.
Logan which communicated itself into the
wliolo army and turned defeat into victory.
By common consent he stood tho ideal vol
unteer soldier of the war. Among the mil
lion bravo men there wns one John A.
Logan. Ho was tho leader by divine right,
lie wns a proud man, too proud and deli
cuto to cluiiii a pension which was iiis iluo
for wounds and exposure on the battlefield.
But lie hnd an abiding faith that should he
be called aw ay beloio his wire tlio people
whom ho had served so long and so well
would not grudgingly but chcoi fully pay
their debt ot honor to hor.
Senator Cockrell said that, however
ho had differed with Gen. Logan be ro-spot-ted,
admired, loved and honored him
for his many noble, generous, iiinguaui
111011s and chivalrous qualities ot head and
heart distinguishing attributes of tho true
soldier and great man among all nations
Senator Fryc said that senators hnd to
day brought and would bring garlands and
wreaths with which to dccoVate tlio grave
of tho dead soldier and senator. Heshotild
rnutent himself with offering asiugle flower.
r.nmin was an honest man. He did not
mean bv that that ho would not steal nor
bear false witness anil thnt lie hnd not "nil

no honest mind, un honest purpose, an
honest habit of thinking. In conclusion ho
mild: "Logan was a fearless, honest man.
May our dear Lord givo him blessed rest
and glorious immortality.

Washington dispatch: The prospects ot
the passage of the anti-Mormon bill aro
not favorable. - The amendments added to
the bill in tlio house, which wero thought
bv friends of tho measure at the time to
bode no good to it, may result In its do-
fent. At all events they aro now used with
much ingenuity by Mormon agents ns a
menus to defeat tlio bill. The prejudices of
republican senators havo been nrousod
against the amendment, which gives the
governor of Utah such extraordinary
power iu the appointment of local munici
pal officers. Thii amendment will givo tho
governor authority to appoint some 2,400
local officers in that territory and make
himself practically dictator. The senate
republicans don't favor such nn amend
I nient, believing that it confers too great
I power upon one man. Somo of the repub
licans think they see behind tlio proposi
tion 11 trick which will result in giving tne
democratic party great ndvantnge in nny
movement which may bo attempted to
socure tho admission ol Utah ns a state,
Such attempts will not be wanting. W. L,
Scott, who is supposed to be nearer the
president than nlmost any otlior congress
man, is still urging tliat some plan be dis
covered b' which tlio subject mny be ro
opened and a provision inserted in tho bill
to authorize the immediate formation of a
state government upon condition that the
Mormons will nbaudon polygamy.

and at 2 o'clock this morning Alliance, 0.,

boarded tlm train and passed through
several of.the cars. Finnlly they saw the

smoking car. No sign of recognition passed
between McMuun nnd the men and they
sat down a few scats from the prisoner
nnd in ufew minutes the express continued
on its course. When Hnvennu wns reached

revolvers on the officers. There were but
a couple of other passengers iu tlio cur, and
the confederates of McMuun wero roinplete

acton gave tliem tlio drop on the offi
