Pollock has appointed Thursday, Nov. 1 - 22 d, "as a day of general thanksgiving and praise throughout this State." \ei v proper— we hope to see the clay observed by all c!ases of our citizens, f.r certainly the people of Penn sylvania have been highly favored during the | past year. To set apart one dav of the year for thanksgiving and praise, is eminently proper, anJ should receive the sanction of ail. But we need not speak of the propriety of obsei ving the | day named by the Governor, tor our people, we feel satisfied, will cheerlully retrain from alii secular employments, and, forgetting the things, ufthis ivoi id, join in offering thanks to the Suiueme Being tor His goodness to us as a peo ple. Dut, let us examine this Proclamation of Gov. Pollock, and compare its language with the acts of its author. The Governor says in one sen-; tence of his Proclamation —"ille Deity) has blessed our country with peace. Ihe Gnionoii the States—our free institutions —our civil and religious privileges—and right oj conscience, m\ freedom of worship, have been continued ; and preserved." Gh, what consummate hypoc- j nsv ! i oir to talk ol the blessings ol "civil and < religious privileges —right ol conscience, and freedom of worship 1" You, the ackuowledg- ; id leader of bigoted and intolerant Know-Nuth- ; ingism, to proclaim to tile people ol Pennsyl- j vatha that they enjoy "civiland religious privi leges," and that therrfuic they should ofler j '•thanks to Almighty God lor His goodness and ■ mercy." Title indeed, we do enjoy "civil and religious privileges," and certain it is we should all thank God for this great privilege. But no thanks to you, Gov. Pollock ; no thanks to the oath-bound Know-Nothing taction, of which you are a conspicuous member. Had not the people ol this Slate turned out in their strength at the late election, and marched to the polls in solid phalanx, presenting the appearance of "an army with banners," and placed the seal ol con demnation upon your foul party, where, we Ask, would be our boasted "civil and religious privileges?"—echo answers where? Had in fidi-! Know Nothingism again triumphed in our glorious old State, "civil and religious privi leges" would have been "crushed out" before a twelve-month. We enjoy these privileges a gawst the wishes and efforts of Gov. Pollock and his sworn associates. They have labored by day and by night, have locked themselves up in '•ark rooms, and taken unlawful, wicked and unconstitutional oaths, and for the purpose ol depriving men ot the privilege of worshiping God according to the dictates of their conscience, t y have attempted to rob tlt-m ol the inesti mable boon of "civil and religious liberty." File Know-Nothing party, with Gov. Pollock as its h mi in Pennsylvania, recognizing that Five Points b'hoy and jail bird, Ned Bcntline of New \ork, as its father, has yielded up every thing like principle and its leaders have associa ted m dens ol infamy, with the vilest ol the vile, to 'Accomplish the objects nearest their hearts, viz:—the obtaining of official patronage, and de priving men of their constitutional rights. Hav ing laded in their wicked attempts to abrogate 'he Constitution and reduce men to serls, the Know Nothings now, through their imbecile Governor, desire the people to return thanks to our common Father, because IB* continues to be stow upon us. as a people, the blessings of "civil and religi OUj privilege*-." or, his Excellency have said: because prosciptive Know Nothingism has been defeated, and "civi and religious privileges" continued bv the bles sings of God, is willing that right should tri- umph over wrong. It is the sheerest hypocrisy and effrontery. therefore, for Gov. Pollock to attempt to make ; believe that he is an advocate of "civil! and ; religious privileges." The bloodstained street ! and smouldering ruins of dwellings in several ol our large cities, are some of the fruits of Know Nothing intolerance and wickedness. Governor : Pollock and his sworn associates in crime, in I attempting to coersce men into a conformity | with their detestable dogmas, have done more i to spread Infidelity, and put at defiance the i teachings of Holy Writ, than they can ever ex pect to atone for. We do enjoy "civil and re ligions privileges," ami we hope we ever may, hut, if we would transmit this blessing to our children and our children's children, we must repudiate such demagogues as Gov. Pollock and his night associates. We must frown down all attempts are made, come from what quar i ter th'-v may, whether from chamber or a Five Points club-room of New York, to deprive us of the enjoyment of Civil and Reliuious Privi leges.—Cur lisle Volunteer. 1 f * ' The Dilhcuitics of Sam's To!lowers- It is very amusing to read the Kimw-Noth mg papers since the decease ol "Sura." Va j irms are the suggestions made as to the best plans to be adopted to galvanize their departed idol into lile, m the vain hope that he may yet I be able to accomplish the overthrow of the great j Democratic party. Many ol the more candid papers ol this miserable and condemned faction | despair—and well they may—of accomplishing this object, and frankly acknowledge that the Democratic candidate for President will have the inside liack in 18b(i. Others again are anxious to keep up a show ol opposition, and express a willingness to adopt any creed and make any bargain, that will enable them to carry out their wicked schemes. There is a ! wide discrepency, however, in the suggestions of Know-Nothing doctors as to the best mode of treatment to be adopted to infuse lile into tbe putrid carcass of "NV/z-j." Here, in the i Nortn, a large majority of them advocate a fusicni-w itir the Republicans, alius Abolitionists, and express a desire to recognize the principles j advocated by these misguided fanatics, and a ; dopt them as part of the Know-Nothing creed. in* cue WUinrt n - very different treatment, lor there his tilends, without an exception, declare that the most : certain plan to bring him on his feet again is to cut loose from Aooiit ion influence, eschew everything like Abolition principles, and take ; open ground "in favor of tae Constitution and the principles of the Nebraska-ivausas bill !" in the New England Slates again, Sam's disci ples think that ttieonly way to resuscitate their deceased champion, is to discard the foreign test and retain the Catholic. But in Lousiana the Know-Nothings have suggested their mode for bringing him to lite, whicn is to discard the i Catholic and retain the foreign lest, and to show ' thai thev are in earnest in making this recom i memlation, they have nominated a leading Calh i ulic as tin ir candidate tor Governor. liun ! dreds ol other minor suggestions have been 1 made bv the Know-Nothmg doctors who have ■ undertaken the herculian task ot breathing hie • into tiie nostrils of that incorrigible old sinner, '•Sani.' , Some ot them bellow out at the top j of theii voices, "unbar the doors, and give the | gasping monster air;" Gut this recommenda tion is met by a scow! and emphatic "no!" on the part of those who love darkness rattier than iij-ht j and who are ashamed to acknowledge themselves advocates ot lvouur-Nothing here sies. Such is the position at present occupied by the Know-Notiiings, North and south. Cue thing is observable, and only one, and that is, that the kiiow-Nuthnig leaders are hopelessly corrupt, and utterly devoid ot all principle. — They are willing—and most ot them have ac knowledged it—to rtsoit to any means, and adopt any* or all creeds, ttiat wilt enable them to gain place and power. Gtterly unprinci pled, Selfish and dishonest, • they are ready to stoop to foreigners where foreigners are strong in numbers, and persecute and even murder them and their children, where they are weak. Tiiev court the Catholics were tins religious sect "has a controling influence, rod persecute them where they are weak and helpless. In the Northern States they preach up Abolition j treason—Hi tiie South thry pretend to be the I peculiar guardians ol slavery ami tiie Nebraska i Bill. They are all things to all men—"every ! tomg by turns and nothing long.' ; I And why ar-' tliey so debased?—why do ; tln v in every locality preach up a dinerent ' j doctrine? Merely to enaole them to Cheat the I people, so that they (leading Know-Nothings) may batten off the spoils ot office. They are ' gamblers' in politics —are even ready to dese ' crate the holy cause o! religion, and put ai de j fiance the teachings ot the Saviour, il by so do ing they can accomplish their nelaiious de signs. The "victories of Sum'" in all the large " cities, have been preceeded by rapine, muider. s and desolation, and the biood ot innocent men. , women and children cry aloud from the ground for vengeance! Infidelity, debauchery and crime are the twin-sisters of Kuow-Niothing ism, and a Ned Bc.niline directs the a*saull ? when the had passions ot Lad men prompt then ? to do the work of the devil. Is it to be won ? dered that the eeople —who, notwithstanding , thev may be deceived for a short time, are nev ! eitheless always honest—have become alarmec ~ | at the atrocities of Know-Nlothingism, and an K rt?at |y ant j willing to tramp the monster in the f I dust whenever and wherever he dares to show c I his hydra head '. Carlisle Volunteer. :: DREADFUL ACCIDENT. j_ From the St. Louis Democrat, Ao. 1. Last evening, about 8 o'clock, we received , the terrible information, through Mr. David H. J Bishop and VV illiam Rumbold, citizens of this place, that the excursion train of twelve or " fourteen cars, that departed fiom St. Louis yes s terday morning, at 9 o'clock, to attend the rail ,f road celebration at Jefferson Citv, met with v an accident at the bridge of the Gasconade riv er, the details of which are not yet attainable, but which, w hen fully known, will, we fear, 11 be of the most awful and heart-rending char \f acter. The information we have derived from these gentlemen is as follows: ,i They were passengers coming down the Mis souri river, on the steamer Ben Bolt, and lan ded at Hermann for the purpose of taking the - downward 2 o'clock tiain for this city. Just , before the boat landed, a! the hour of I o'clock, r the excursion train passed up by Hermann, t and the passengers both of boat and cars ex changed greetings. Shortly after the landing of ?h" Ben Bolt, ' and just as the downward train was about star - ting, a locomotive that had accompanied and t - was pushing at the rear of the excursion train, I arrived at Hermann from above, bearing the terriide news that as the excursion cars were passing over the railroad bridge recently erect ed at the mouth of the Gasconade river, at a distance of about eight miles from Hermann, the bridge gave way, and precipitated the front . locomotive and ten of the passenger cars of the . train down into the river. t The height of the bridge above the wafer I was about thirty feet, and the depth of the wa ► ter beneath stated to be twenty feet. The loco motive which brought the news to Hermann, I together with one of the passenger cars, be i came disengaged from the train as the accident ■ took place, and were thus saved. About one . hundred arid fifty of the passengers, it is stated, . got out ot the cars before passing the bridge, in , order to inspect the structure and abserve the trial of the heavy train upon tile limbers.— These, if they were not standing on the bridge , at the time, may~fiave escaped injury. The locomotive and tender of the downward train from Hermann, was immediately disen gaged, and the passenger cars attached to the engine which had just come from the scene of the disaster. The latter went immediately back to the bridge, while the former, on which were Messrs. Bishop and Rumbold, proceeded with ail haste to this city. The excursion train had on board at least six hundred Tiersons. VV host so n>y yii„uu tutu iul v contemplate the consequences. Amongst he excursionists were many of the leading merchants and railroad men of the city —judges of our courts and members of all the professions—besides two companies of our mili tary, the National Guards and the St. Louis Grays. Indeed, we may say the very flower of our citizens were on hoard the train. At the time of writing this we have no con firmatoiv news. Large numbers of our citi- Z'-ns are holding consultation at the Planters' House, and taking steps for the procuring of more reliable news and preparing to receive the killed and wounded that may come in on the next train. We conclude for the present under the most painful anxieties for further particulars, and hoping that late advices may rid us of the thou sand apprehensions and terrible uncertainties that now surround the case. J'IGIH The St. Louis Intelligencer, Nov. 2. Messrs. Rumbold ar.d Bishop, well known citizens of St. Louis, came to our office last evening with the melancholy intelligence of a terrible disaster which happened on the Pacific Railroad yesterday, between 1 and 2 o'clock p. m . to tlm excuisionists to Jeflerson city.— We have no language at command to express our feelings. Never did we receive or have occasion at record more shocking intelligence. The gentlemen who bring the sad tidings were on their way to the city as passengers on the Ben Bolt and saw the tiain of cars pass up with the company on boaid and exchanged sal utation. The boat soon came to a landing, and the train proceeded on to the Gasconade river, about ei-_'ht miles distant. Before the boat was ready to leave a locomotive which had follow ed train for the purpose of rendering assistance i in case ol accident, or of seeing that all was right along the road came Lack l:om the river with the word that the bridge over the Gas conade, standing thirty-five feet above the wa ter, had broken down while the train was cross ing and that ten or eleven cars with theii occu pants had been precipitated into twenty feet water. The consternation of the men with the locomotive was so great that they could only - announce the fact, adding that they thought that at least one hundred and fifty had got out of the cars to walk over the bridge. I here t were probably 500 persons in the company. Two of our military companies were along, the Grays and the National Guards—as were also J many members ol tlite Press and private citi z< ns. The Locomotive came down to the train „ bound lor St. Louis, which was immediately taken by the Superintendent and his men Lack e to the "scene of suffering, and may have been • the means of saving many lives, i, Messrs. Rumbold and Bishop at once prevail d ed upon the ticket agent and engineer at Her d matin, to come immediately to the city, with - the news, which was consented to and a loco- It motive and baggage car were despatched on n which our informants took passage, to bear the i- mournful tidings to the friends who had with g joyous hearts bnt just before bid fathers, broth - ers, husbands and associates God speed and re d grelting that they themselves w ere not of the e party. e Tfie gentlemen deserve much credit for the ' promptness with which they acted in getting to the city with the heart rending news.

The Polar Star was also expected along every moment, and would, of course, stop at Hermann, where il would be in her power to render assistance, which we hope would be the case. As we are writing, we hear that an express 1 train has gone up the road, and we deter any further statements ami comments until its re -1 turn,or intelligence is received by some other 1 channel. From the St. Louis Republican Nov. 2.

The train consisting of lourteeii cars, left the depot on Seventh street, at 9 o'clock, crowded with invited guests, a half hour after the tune advertised. By tiie time it reached Hermann this delay was fully recovered, thus showing the good condition of the* track. After leaving Hermann, the train proceeded with good speed, • arid without the least difficulty, until it reached : the Gasconade, when one ol the most disastrous j accidents occurrod which has yet thrown this • city into mourning. The bridge acruss that stream gave vvay, and j ten of the cars were precipitated a distanced, twenty-five or thirty feet. The locomotive, from all appearances, had reached the edge of the first pier when the structure gave way, and, j in tailing, reversed its position entirety , the troht turning to the east, and the wheels up ward. On the locomotive at the time were the j President, Mr. 11. E. Bridge, Mr. O'Sulliian, the chief engineer of the road, and an addition al number ot employees. Mr. Bridge, it is supposed, is the only oae saved of the individuals named. An hour alter ; the disaster, voices from beneath the wreck ot the locomotive were heard asking lor assistance: and when we left the scene ot disaster, active j efforts were making to relieve the suhert-is.— ; It is possible—nay, it is to be hoped, probable, that some of these unfortunrtes may have been ' rescued. The road enters the bridge with a curve, and : this circumstance, perhaps, preveuted the dis aster from being more fatal, as tiie cars thereby ' were diverted, and thus prevented from tailing; directly iu a general melee. Euougti of inju- , ry, however, was accomplished. The Bag- j gage car, next the engine, went down, to use | the expression ot one who was in it, "extreme ly easy," without causing any serious casualty. The first and second passenger cars loliuwed, ! and 111 these Were several killed and a great number more or less mangled. In the third car, one of two were killed, on iSnd almost eullretv"denMVis:re n, was ir CT -mmwi to lite and limb. In the fourth aud tilth cars a 'Teat many were fatally injured, and several Distantly killed. The balance ot the train fol lowed swiftly on their lata! errand, and tile ioss of life, with contusions more or less severe, was dreadful. Some of the cars plunged on those beneath j them with their ponderous w heels, and crushed or maimed the unfortunate peisous below. — Others hung ujion the cliti iu a perpendicular position, aud two or three turned bottom up ward down the grade. Only one—the ex treme rear car—maintained its position on the rail. i Death of a Half Century Convict. An aged colored man known by the name ol "Old Bob," who has been an inmate of the Maryland Penitentiary since 1810, died at that , institution on Wednesday. He belonged to a j planter of Charles county, who was rather a | severe master, and in ISO 2 placed him on board j a vessel, with instructions to allow no one, not ; even the son of tiie master, tu come on the ves- , sel, and if any attempt was made to board the j vessel, he should strike them in the head with i a handspike. Jn tbe evening following the j issueing of this mandate, the son of The master, j in company with two of his associates, ap- ; proached the vessel, and attempted to board her . j he was warned not to come on board by "Old i Bob," who repeated the instructions of his | master, and added that he would obey the or- j (lers he had received. The young man regar- , ding the language of the negro as a jest, rustled | heedlessly forward, and gained a position on | the vessel : but no sooner had he landed than j Bob picked up tbe handspike and knocked him : oil the head, killing him instantly. Bob was; immediately arrested and tried tor muider and j convicted. Ihe circumstances ol the case un- j der which the deed had been perpetrated, so j lar secured the clemency ol the court as to i commute his sentence to imprisonment for lite, j The period of his confinement was about fifty-i three years, and he was upwards of one bun- ! died years old at the time of his death. lor a j number of years past, fie has been spared all j laborious employment, and passed his time in ; amusing himself in various ways, such as cuiti- . vating tlowers, raising pig !i , smoking herring, ; £cc. So strongiv had the habits ot a lile in j ' prison grown upon him that on several occa- ; sions, when he was liberated, to test what: might be his conduct, he refused to leave the | 1 institution, and when the gates were closed up- j on him would weep like a child until he wa> ; restored to his former position. His deport -1 ment during the whole period ol Ins confine ment was such that no fault could be found with ■ him.— Baltimore American. i Remarkable. —J- YY.

A remarkable coinci r . dence. - WHAT THE PEOPLE EXPECT. The people ot Pennsylvania have delegatet ' the law-making power, for tbe next year, to tin • Democratic party. In both branches ol th< ; j Legislature, the Democrats have a clear work ' : ing majority ; and therefore the people wil ' j hold them responsible for all the bad that may ': be done, or the good left undone, during thl ! session now near at hand. As this party has 1 j always professed to have in view the greatest I good ot the greatset number, and to care only j lor the welfare of the people at large it may rea j sonably be expected of its representatives that J they should legislate, not lor sectional interests, ! but lor the whole State—not lor classes, but lor j the whole people. I here are various measures, in the nature of j reforms, which are more particularly expected ; of the new Legislature: aud we have thought ; that a brief reference to them might not be a j niiss. And Ist. The people expect a short session. The appropriations are the chief and most irn ! portant business of the Legislature, and they should claim its first attention, instead of being left to the last moment, and then hurried thro' j with a haste that never fails to work injury.— j All the legitimate work can be easily done in sixty days, and every day beyond that time, ; that the session is prolonged, will be a us-eless J waste ol time and money. 2d. The people expect a strictly economical ! appropriation of the public mony. The taxes i are heavy and hard to pay; and as long as the w eight of debt bears Upon us, and payment of J interest, simply, absorbs so large a portion of the : resources of the State, it is the grossest injustice ito make any expenditure uut demanded by ab solute necessity. At a time when a large por j tion of the people desire a sale of the State's ca nals and railroads, the appropriate** of a single ! dollar to any new project ot public improvement, : would be a flagrant wrong. 3d. The people want no special legislation jof the sort that last winter consumed so much j time, and called Ibrth so much dissatisfaction.— ; The fewer private bills passed, the better for the public good: and as tor the multifariouscorpora i tions for which every Legislature is importuned with a pertinacity worthy of a better object, very lew ot them are of a character to deserve any consideration. An act of incorporation j generally carries with it the irrant of privileges toa few individuals which the mass ot the peo ple do not enjoy ; and is, in so much, a direct violation ol toe fundamental democratic princi ple so beautifully illustrated by Andrew Jack son, when he said that "The blessings ol gov ernment, like the dews of heaven, .should de- I rBWK fV IIIVUN'M (tie grurj ai ...... j there are very few proper subjects of legislation that cannot be leached by them. 4-th. The people expect a check to be put upon the mania for new Banks, which the com paiatively liberal grant of Bank charters last session has excited. 'Applications tor seventy six new Banks, and for the re-charter ot thir teen old ones, a re now pending—looking to an increase of the present banking capital of the Slate, to the enormous amount ot thirty seven millions. This would be a frightful picture, were the people under anv apprehension that the facility with which the last Legislature save charters to new Banks, would be imitated by the next. There may possibly be an isolated case Or two in which a Bank might be desirable, and find useful business; but no one can say with tiutli that any increase of our aggregate banking capital is necessary at the present time. This being the fact, and public sentiment being jso decidedly against such increase, the true po ! licy of the Legislature is to turn a deaf ear to all ! new Bank applications, and confine its action i upon Banks to the re-chartering of such old ones j as have maintained a good credit in the pursuit j ol legitimate banking business. sth. The people expect the "Jug Law ' to be I repealed. It was passed in opposition to their : previously expressed will—is one ol those ultra and fanatical measures which, by their uncalled for severity and restrictiveness, defeat the ob ject thev seek—and cannot be executed without ! doing violence to those settled convictions ol j individual right and liberty lor which the peo i pie of Pennsylvania have long, and pre-emi ! nentlv, been characterized. They want no pro ; hibitiou ol that, as criminal, whose use is per -1 fectlv lawful, and in whose abuse alone con ; sists personal and social evil. A judicious li : cense law, so framed as to prevent and punish j all intemperance and excess in the use of li l quors, and hedge arouud the tratic with such j wholesome restraints as will deter irresponsible | and disreputable iiwn from engaging in it, is the I measure of true temperance which our people j desire, and which they w ill cordially respect j arid obey. j Gth. The people want no more legislative I "Excursions" and "Banquets" at the public ex j pense. There is a time for all things, and the I time for which the people's representatives are ! paid to attend to the public business, is certain j ly not tbe time to be wasted in (easting and ! pleasure trips. If members are fond of a "blow j out," let them take it. either before the session | opens, or after it closes, and pay for it out of their own pockets. But when they go to Har risburg, and take their seats, let them earn their pay by doing the work they are sent to perform, ; just as earnestly and industriously as they would set about OWTI private business. We might lengthen this list considerably : but enough has already been mentioned to show in ! what direction the people's expectations tend, i The task is an easy one for members who hon | estly wish-to obey the known w ill of their con , stituents. To serve the people, in the way I of their own pointing out, is the first duty ol ; Democrats in all public stations. That the next legislature of Pennsylvania may consci ! entiously perform that duty, we hopefully trust.— "Reading Gazette and Dcmobnt. THE MASONIC PROCESSION. —The procession ! yesterday, exceeded in chaste display, any thing TERMS, $2 PER YEAR. j that we have ever before seen in Philadelphia. 1( j i No banners were carried, as in Know-Nothing , t . j Parades, to insult a large portion of our fellow ie ; citizens, and wound their keenest sesibilities. j Inspired with the true principles of fellowship, |j they paid a proper regard to the dignity of y manhood, and refrained from those miserable c ostentations, which not only offend the taste, ls but degrade the men who take part in their dis plav. Men of ail nations and all creeds were .. in the procession, which was an acknowledg _ ' ment that all are entitled to the "great brother ly j hood." But how could the Know-Nothings i } j niarch in that procession, linked to a brother of r j foreign birth, or Catholic faith, without feeling: ! the terrible rebuke administered by the whole [ some charity which prevails in the Masonic Or j i der. No good Mason can be a Know-Nothing, t i because the principles of Masonry are charity, _ i love and fraternal love to all mankind. It was ja pisplay that w ill live in the memory of all . j who witnessed it to the end of their lives.

A Texas exchange gives the following per tinent illustration of the practical working of intolerance and proscription in that State, which soon would be the same in all the new States ■ were they to succeed. This misfortune, how j ever, we are glad to believe, will never belall 1 i any Statp, new or old, for the thing is dead : "As we have predicted, it is coming to pass I that the inveterate hostility to foreigners, on ' the part of the Know-Nothings, would end in I driving out, and preventing also from coming ' in, the more respectable and enterprising for eigners—those even who came here to follow i industrious pursuits and avocations, and, while ! digging fortunes for themselves and children " 1 out of the soil, adding also to the wealth and prosperity of the State and nation. ' "We see in the New Braunfels paper of the 1 12th instant that two hundred German immi ' ' grants arrived at Indianola on the 2d ol this : month on the ship Guttenberg. AH were in comfortable circumstances, and, but for the per ? ; sedition waged against foreigners by the Know- Nothings, would have contentedly settled upon j our wild lands, become purchasers of our soil, and added to the increasing wealth of the Stale. But it is said that eighty of them resolved L .' to remain in Texas; the rest going to Mexico.

LLP The Know-Nothings here were quite of ? j tended when we intimated that the notorious - Ned Buntline was the originator of their pure ? ! organization. At a meeting ol their party held ? in Philadelphia, previous to the election he at - ' tended and was introduced as the "FATHER i jOF SAM 1" Since that he re-commenced the - publication of "Ned Buntline's Own," for the 1 1 especial pur|>ose of advocating Know-Nothing f j ism.
