The examination of these gentlemen we understand from the committee was thorough ami comprehensive and passed off in a highly creditable manner. We congratulate them all upon the completion of the days of pupilage, and now, as they go out to try the realities of life, we hope their fondest expectations may he realized. CZTThe Democrats of Montgomery held a prisr.ay Convention in Norristown on Tuesday, and adopted a series of excellent resolutions, approving the Na tional Administration, opposing the Jug Law, and teeommending the firmest adherence to the princi ples f the Constitution. DENOnUTII lOISTI MEETING. Qjr*The Democrats of Bedford County assem bled in Mass Meeting on last Monday evening— and, although the weather was very inclement, it having rained nearly the vc hole day, the court house was crowded to its fullest capacity, and presented as fine an evidence of the firmness and determination of the Democratic Party as we have ever witnessed. It was organized by calling Hon. JOB MANN to the Chair—and appointing A. .J Snively, Josiah Miller, Wni. Fluck, Jos. Crisman, Solomon Steel, and John athan Diehl, Vice Presidents—and Michael VV'ertz, Esq. and Col. F. D. Beegle,Secretaries. The Delegates were then choseu to go into Convention.

The Committee appointed to prepare resolutions would respectfully report the following, That— WHF.UEAS, The Democratic Party of Bedford founty, for the greater perfection of its organization, and in accordance with its former usages, has bled to-night for*the purpose of putting in nomination candidates to be supported at the coining election— it ts right and proper that the principles and policy which shall guide the party in the approaching can vass be considered and made known—and, therefore, be it Revolved, That the full anil explicit exposition ol Democratic doctrine, upon all the great questions ol national policJLs* laid down by the National Demo cratic Convention at Baltimore in IS.V 2, meets still our hearty approbation, and we hereby re-affirm the same. Time ar.il experience sanction every syllable of their resolutions —the increased and 'increasing prosperity of our country stands a re*l£ endorser, anil with that platform of principles lor a shield and helmet we are again willing to go before the public, to meet our enemies, open or secret, ami leave tlie decision of merit—the decision of the contest to an intelligent people. Retolved, That we review with pleasure the pure ly national and patriotic administration of FUA.NKI.IN PlKßCK —that his strict conformity to Democratic precedents and practice—his unflinching defence of 'he rights of all sections of the country—his untiring zeal in the preservation of peace and true devotion to the common brotherhood—inspires us with increased confidence in his ability, manly and also in the ability and patriotism of his cabinet. Resolved, That as State Sovereigntyiin all matters of purely internal and domestic concern is and al ways has been a cardinal principle of Democratic faith, Congress ought not now, for reasons of policy and justice, to interfere in the domestic affair* of ter ritories ; the people thereof, we hold, should be left free to establish such local institutions as they may desire —provided they be not eoutiary tolnwgof pub lic morals, and that the admiVsion of new Sj£te,dnto the I'nion, with or without slavery, is jnitifi. | by precedent and the practice of Congress frorf|lbeEar liest times of the Republic until now. Unsolved, That we regard all secret polmTaf- as sociations as immoral and unconstitutional —as OJUK> serf to the principle and Spirit of our free lnstottttuais and uncalled lor in a land where freedom oWbpjgbt free discussion and a free Prfrss are suffiriwt safe guards against public wrongs 1 And e*i*cially *>!< we avow our eternal hostility to the secret, nWmgti l dark-lantern movements, and proscnpM'e that anti-Repuhlican, anti-American, Oath-bmind or gamzation appropriately styled Know-Nothings.— That as free-born American citizens we can counten atice no party whose sole object" is to ostracise, t( disfranchise and disgrace men on account of their rc ligious opinions or the place of their birth—and also that broken-down politicians arid political loaiers may find convenient bobbies on which they may ride in to office. With such we can have no sympathy or connection—but for these misguided Democrats who, without thought and through mis-representation plunged into it.- Councils, we would record our re gret—and, by the Constitution of our Country, which declares no religion* text shall ever be required as a qualification for offiee or place of public trust, ami by the proud and lofty title of "axtflnm" for thedi-tres sed of all nations—kindly invite them to return ! Heto/vrJ, That we cordially endorse the re-oiutions ol the Democratic State Convention of J855 and here by pledge our undivided support of Hon. ARNOLD PLUJIKK our nominee for Canal Commi-sioner—hav ing full confidence in his fidelity as a Democrat and honesty and capacity as a man. Kf-so/ved, That the sale of the main line of our Public Improvements, as authorized in the bi!l pas sed by the la-t Legislature would Ij> detrimental to the best interests of the people of Pennsylvania, im politic and unwise. Re*o/rcd, That the infamous .Jtig Lnw enacted by the ?ame body, was passed in direct opposition to the expressed will of the people—thjt it was therefore, an unwarrantable stretch of legislative authority—an infringement upon personal liberty—an invasion of the vested rights of a tvranical at tempt to furrr men into total abstinence from that which has the sanction of (almost universal) ctis tonn I tid the approbation of higher authority. Moral abuses are not successfully cured by legisla tive restriction—legislation in advance of public opinion proves generally fruitless—and we, therefore, whilst we pledge ourselves to support any practicable and necessary measures to correct the evils of in temperance, do hereby resolve to employ ail proper and legitimate efforts to secure the early repeal of said law. Resolvrd , That for their acts and conduct approved and sanctioned by the Governor—the lafp Know- Nothing Legislature will he held accountable—that the views and principles of the present State admin istration we believe are obnoxious to every right thinking individual—having recklessly squandered millions of the people's money and passed laws by which the best interests of the Slate are, or propo'.e to he sertou-lv and injuriously affected; as citizens of our good old Commonwealth we regret that such an administration ever bad an existence, and as Demo crats, pledge ourselves to rest not until the star which lights the tomb of Jrweitsos, which shed a lustre a round the memory of WASHIMATOX, of MADISON and JACKSON, is again in the a—cendant—until our ban ner- again waive in triumph from the Capitol of the old Key-tone—for then, and not till then, will the augean stalls of public trust he purified. Resolrtd, That we heartily approved the course pursued by our representative Hon. William T. Daughertv, and that vie especially commend him for having voted, in conformity with the wishes of a large majority of his constituents, in opposition to the iniquitous Jug Law. Rutolved, That we cordially endorse The follow ing nominations, and pledge to the nominees our hearly support: Treasurer—lS AA C M F.NG EL. Commissioner—THOMAS \V. MORTON. Director—H FNUV WKRTZ. Auditor F.f)\V AUD PKA RSON. Rf.ro/vetl, That Jno. P. Reed, A. J.

Adjourned. J. B. SANSGM, Sec'rv. David Atchison a know Nothing. The St. Louis Democrat says that there is not the least doubt that the notorious, if not in famous, David Atchison, of Missouri, who has been the head ofthe party in Missouri that would force slavery into Kansas against the wishes of her people, it <t member of the Know .Vo/Amg Order , and has accomplished the Kan sas outrages through its instrumentality. It declares that several members of the Order will soon give their certificates of Atchison's connec tion with them. Wonder what tin* Know Nothings and Abolitionists here, who have had -so much to say about Kansas matters, will say to this JfA IS 3* I E 1>: At Srbellsburs on Thursday evening the .101 h ntf., by John Smith.

The horses \\ r caught by the hindermost car, knocked d< and crushed to death. The Doctor out and made a very narrow escape, the ca 1 age being shivered to pieces.

I attribute the melancliolv accident to the I engineer not ringing the hell, nor giving any ■ alarm, hut hacking the train at the almost des j tructive rate of thirty miles an hour. [An act ! of the legislature fixes the maximum rate of speed through the borough of Burlington, which extends to where the accident occurred, at six miles per hour.] I have been cautions from u preceding acci dent—a " agon containing several members of my family having been broken during mv ab sence by the fright of a horse a few years ago. I am an elder of Dr. Miller's Presbyterian church, at Columbus, where I have practised medicine for the last thirty-two years. ANOTHER ACCOUNT OF THE ACCIDENT. One of the reporters of Philadelphia, who was sent to the scene of disaster, gives the fol lowing account of the accident: The train of cars which left Philadelphia at ten o'clock, consisting of five passenger cars, baggage car and locomotive, had reached Bur lington just before 11 o'clock. It then stop ped, waiting for the arrival of the S o'clock New York train from Jersey City, which pass es at this place. Alter waiting for from five to. ten minutes, and the New York train not ap pearing, the Philadelphia train went forward slowly, watching for the approach of the down ward train. It had gone forward about a mile and a quarter, when the New York train came in sight. The whistle fir the breaks and to reverse the engine was blown, and the Phila delphia train commenced backing, and soon got under rapid headway far Burlington again. In this reverse movement the passenger cars, usu ally placed behind and coming after the loco motive, were now in front, and pushed forward by the locomotive. The engineer being with the locomotive, of" course had not the advan tage of seeing what was ahead of the backward going train. He had run but a quarter of a mile, and a mile from Burlington, when the first passenger car tame in collision with a light pleasure wagon, driven by Dr. Hannegan, of Columbus, New Jersey, who attempted to cross the track in front of the cars. The wagon contained Dr. Hannegan, his witj, and two children. The former, it is said, is hard of hearing, and by this infertility caused an accident nearly similar, but not so fatal, near Beverly, about a year ago. The Doctor had seen the cars pass as he was driving down the road, and supposing all safe, neglected to keep a proper lookout. The first passenger car siruck the two horses in the just as they were crossing the track, killed them instantly, and threw one thirty feet on one sA of the track, and the other forty yards QjjJwe other side. The wagon was turned rottnn and upset,, none of its inmates being injured, except in slight bruises. The front car. A, after; striking the horses, ran forward, and o/F the track, about one hundred yards, and over'a small embank ment. The second car, B, was thrown direct ly across the track. The third car, C,. went through car B and stopped diagonally across the road. The fourth car, J), followed and ran into car C\ The Sl'th passenger car and the baggage car stopped without leaving the track. The two latt'-r were .not injorwi, but three of the other passenger caw were knocked to pie ces, and many of their occupants were killed, wounded, ami n aimed. It is impossible to describe the horrible scene that ensued. The cars were piled upon each other, and numfxwof human beings were lying among the ruins, some dead, some dying, som~ shrieking from pain. Those saved in the train, and the passengers on the down train, aided hy citizens of Burlington, who were quickly in- * formed of the terrible accident, went fo work to rescue the wounded and dying from the ruins. As soon as taken out they were conveyed to Burlington, where many private houses, as well as Agnevv's anil Kelly's taverns, were thrown open to the admission of the wounded, white the Lvceum was appropriated for rlie reception iof the dead. Some had bean crushed to deaih ; instantly, leaving scarcely a trace to recognise j them bv ; some had been torn limb from limb bv the splinters, benches, and floors, and their remains scattered in every direction. Manv were suffering from crushed limbs, broken backs, and injured and lacerated bodies. The scene was a heart-sickening one : but, amid all it* terrors, there were noble instances of resigna tion, a self-sacrificing spirit from the sufferers, i which honored human nature. One gentleman, the Hon. William B. Mr. Clay, ex-member of Congress, from New York, : who was severely injured, begged those who i came to his aid to give their attentions to others m ire dangerously wounded. One individual, * with bis foot crushed, refused to receive the aid of the doctors till they had relieved the sufferings of others, who seemed more to require ■ medical assistance. Wash Your own Laces. The difficulty of getting laces washed light, especially out of a great city, is very great.— E' ei v ladv, therefore, should know how n> wash her own threats lace. If anv fair lady it igno rant of this art, we ran teach her in a verv lew words. Let her first rip off the lace, carefully pick out the loose bits o! thread, roll tbe Lee smoothly and securely round a clean black but- ; tle previously covered with old white linen, U sewed tightly on. Tack each end of tbe lace ? wi ha needle and thread, to ke.-p it smooth, and j he careful in wrapping nit to crumble or Li J in any ofthe scollops or pearlings. AfW it i, j on the bottle, take some of the best sweet o;:, 1 and with a clean sponge wet the lace thorough !lv to the inmost folds. Have ready, in a 1 kettle, a Strong lather cf ch-ar water and Castile ' soap. ' Fill the bottle with cold water to pre vent its bursting; cork it well and stand it r.p right in the suds, with a string round the neck secured to the ears or handle of the kettle, t i prevent its knocking about and breaking whii nver the fire. Let it boil in suds lor an hour or more, till the lace is clean and white ait through. Drain off the suds, and dry it on the liottie round a wide rib'>on block,or lay it ir. Ion" folds, place it within a sheet of white ' smooth paper, and press it in a large book a ■ fews days. Exsv PREVENTION or \CLLGW ]■ ever. or.
