Railroad Accident ? The Thursday morn ing mail train from Baltimore t. Philadelphia met with au accident of a serious character five miles north of Wilmington, by the break tng of the driving-wheel of the enrine The engine was rendered a complete wreck, and her pa/aenger cars were forced up an embank ment, and left lying upon their side The paasengers all escaped serious injury, but the fireman was severely hurt. The mail agent was thrown from the window of the car and escaped with seme slight bruises The wreck on the track prevented the passage of the other trains, and the passengers had to walk round and take the cars on the other side. , Fharkcl Effect or a* Avalanche?I>ur icg a recent rain storm at Cape Breton an avalanche of snow, impelled by a large body of water, overwhelmed the dwelling-house of a Mr. Campbell, about thirty miles from Syd ntj, destroying the; house and burying in the ruins Mr Campbell, his wife, mother, three eh.ildreo and twoj young girU Mrs. Camp bell. her three children, and oe# of the girls perished by the catastrophe, but the others were reseued alive. The avalanehe occurred is the night. ? A bare was also overwhelmed and eighteen head vf cattle were kiiled WASH! WO TOW 1TBW8 kWD GOSSIP. The Kansas Election Cue Reports?We bare read attentively the majority and mi | nority reports of the House Election Commit tee, accompanying the resolution (of the mi ; jority thereof) to accord to them power to send to Kansas and elsewhere for persons nnd papers. We have to repeat the declaration made in yesterday's Star, that those who hold that General 'Whitfield is entitled to the seat in dispute, are perfectly willing to be bound by the country's verdict in the case after it shall have mastered the contents of these two papers. They bear out to the letter, with irresistible force, the truth of our re peated declarations that Governor Reeder is asking Congress to adjudge for his own bene fit, that his official statements, made while Governor of the Territory, are false ; that he makes no pretension to have been himself elected in pursuance of any law ; and fur ther, that he is here claiming the seat without the scratch of a pen (other than his own wholly unsupported allegations) in the shape of testimony sustaining his foolish demand to be received as the rightful delegate from Kansas. The report of the majority?all " friends of freedom" in the modern sense of the term is simply a compilation of the sweeping mis statements of the truth concerning Kansas matters that have appeared from time to time in such journals as the New York Tribune and Times, a deliberate and earnest endorse, nient of their truth on the unsustained allega tion of Governor Reeder, and a plea that no weight shall be acoorded to his official state ments and acts as Governor of the Territory where they bear on the merits of the contro versy, because, as they assume, he now act? for the people of Kansas rather than for himself This is a position proving one of two things' vis : Either that they have deliberately del termined to cast all law and common sense to the winds to accomplish a partisan end , or that their minds have become so warped by the intensity of their political prejudices, as that they have lest all capacity to remember that they were sent to Washington to aid in governing the country by law, and under constitutional limitations. Abolitionism, intense and unadulterated, runs through efery paragraph of their paper the legal positions of which are so absurd as that one might easily imagine it to be the production of the pen of some such publicist as William Lloyd Garrison, Parker Pillsbury, or Abby Kelley. Indeed, they argue as ear nestly and openly in favor of setting all law and sales growing out of legal principles at defiance, and for being governed by the high er law of their own momentary views of the necessitses of their own case, as ever was ar gued in an official report of " the American anti-Slavery Society" penned by Garrison himself. Some time since we took occasion to explain that this scheme of sending for persons nnd papers was merely a dodge designed to pay wages to a large number of Abolition agita tors who have devoted themselves for the past year to the work of abolitionising Kansas. These are the parties who are intended by Gov Reeder and his abolition co-laborers to be brought hither at the cost of the Treasury of the United States. A large number of them are already in northern Atlantic States, beg ging for money and arms with which to resist the laws and the officers of the government in I Ka-sas. Some of them are now in Washing ton ; while it is designed evidently to import direct from the Territory the strongest swear ers among those of them left there. It is clearly evident from this report that the majority of the committee intend, if pos sible, to throw the decision of the case over until after the next approaching Presidential election. Oi, in other words, that their aim is to make Republican party capital in that election, by and through the expenditure of money from the United States Treasury to pay the cost of flooding the non-slaveholding States with abolition falsehoods, written by the parties they aim to collect here, to the thousand abolition newspapers; and by pay ing them each an aggregate sufficient to en able each of them to play the Republican party missionary over the non-slaveholding States for months before the 6th of November next There can be no doubt that the Re publican-party managers now here have ar ranged this plan in detail. Hence the de mand for power to send for persons and pa pers. The scheme is a vast one, and ounning ly contrived, indeed. The Kansas contested election caso, already shown in the two re ports in question to be the boldest pretense for an election contest ever conceived by specious and unscrupulous men, is, indeed, simply "a good enough (Republican-party) Morgan until after the election." Our belief is, that honorable members who, while they are anxious that slavery shall not exist in Kansas are not sympathizers with the general politios of the Republican party, will hardly bo caught in the trap set for them. ' It is designed to drive them into it, however, if brow-beating and personal abuse of them by the pens of persons writing from this city to Republican party newspapers in their re spective districts can effect that end. The Washington Monument.?If anything were needed to show the insincerity of Know Nothingism, it may be found in the course of the gentlemen who were sneaked into the Board of the Washington Monument Society, by a well-arranged party trick. The indecent haste which they exhibited to oust their pre decessors in office, the blustering, swaggering tone which initiated their entrance upon the duties of their now positions, their boastful and pretentious pronunriamento, addressed to their brethren throughout the country?all these things are remembered, and will long be remembered, not only by the oitisens of Washington, but by every good and true man who blushed to see this desecration of a work that had hitherto been regarded as holy and sacred. The old Board, composed of gentle" men distinguished alike for their virtue, wis dom and intelligence, were ordered to retire and make way for these patriots, who were panting to complete at once this testimonial of a nation's gratitude." To be sure, some were invidious enough to suggest a compari son with the indiscreet purchaser of a certain animal called ?? the elephant," while a few hinted their doubU as to the performance of these lofty promises, on the ground that they had often heard of Know Nothings tearing down, but never yet of their erecting a struc ture. But still it was hoped that having entered upon their labors with the %eal of neophytes, and having in some measure un der their command the machinery of the va rious lodges throughout the country, they would do something which would justify the rashnes# of their undertaking. Bat, alas! for human hopei, based on raoh Blender fbun? dations! A year has rolled round, nearly two courses of stone have been laid ; the ?la> ries of all the officials have been paid, and the Washington Monument Society, so we are offioially informed, u is debt! Such is the result of their labors for the first year. How magnificent the promise?how insignificant the performance ! ! It is saddening to reflect upon what may be the effect of tbis disgraceful failure. We believe that this undertaking, so dear to every American heart, has been choked in the embrace of those who have prostituted it to the purposes of political gain. They have, we fear, rendered hopeless all future efforts, and have induced the fear and the belief that this noble monument, commenced with such high and holy hopes and aspirations, will never be completed. But even in its unfinished condition, it may serve a useful purpose. When, in after years, the principles of this party shall have been buried in the oblivion into which they are fast hastening, then let this monumental pile, thus "shorn of its fair proportions," tell of the blasting and blithing effects of the fell spirit of religious intolerance. Thus may it be a sad and solemn warning to those who are to come after us, and even in its prema ture ruins, be " rich in mournful eloquence " The Absurdity of it.?The impudenoe and absurdity of Governor Reeder's claim to be received as the delegate from Kansas, are glaringly exposed by the fact that there is now in Washington a Mr. Delahay, claiming to havo been elected a full member of the Congress, to represent the new State of Kan sas, under the Topeka-made constitution, which went into effect on the 4th inst., if there be soundness in Governor's Reeder's theory relative to the political rights of his friends there. If without authority of law they had a right to set aside tho eleotion le gally ordered, in which General Whitfield was chosen, and a few days after that oocurred to hold another election without a pretenoe of warrant of law for so doing, then the subse quent action of his friends at Topeka, re sulting in the election of a member of Con gress?Mr. Delahay?superseding him (Gov ernor Reeder,) was also lawful; and Kan sas is no longer a Territory, but a State Mr. Delahay, and not Governor Reeder being her representative in the Congress of the United States. Regarding both the acts on which we com ment above as being mere impudent and revolutionary pretensions, we see no validity in the claim of either R. or D. Yet, as against Governor Reeder's claim on the grounds on which it is based, that of Mr. Delahay (the 4th of March having expired) is valid and sound. In the whole course of our reading and experience with public affairs, we never before saw or heard of a case based upon such bold and sheer false pretences as this claim of ex-Governor Reeder to be admitted as the lawful delegate from Kansas, The Democratic Nomination ?Quite a number of sturdy delegates to the recent Democratic State Convention at Uarrisburg, Pa., are now in Washington. These gentle men are, of course, and very properly, earnest supporters of the proposition to nominate Mr. Buchanan. As a matter of course they are earnestly pleading his cause with prominent Democratic public men, from all sections of the Union. The abiding attachment of Penn sylvania to James Buchanan, while it tells well indeed for the integrity of purpose of the good people of that State in all they do, involves an abiding compliment to the worth of Mr. Buohanan himself that tells well for him in all respects. The Current Operations of the Treaaury Department.?On yesterday, 6th of March, there were of Treasury warrants entered on the books of the Department? For the Treasury Department... $25,798 65 For the Interior Department 6,749 94 For Customs 21,180 57 War warrants received and en tered 2.150 00 From Customs 763 12 On account of the Navy a 330 00 CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS. In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the annual fortification bill, (appropri ating, in all, about S2,800,000,) was passed. The resolution of Mr. Sumner censuring the President for giving to "Denmark the notice for the termination of the Sound Dues treaty, and directing the Foreign Affairs Committee to report such measures as they may think ne cessary on the part of Congress to make the abrogation of the Sound Dues treaty legal by securing for tho action of the Executive the concurrence of the legislative branch of the Government of the United States, was then taken up. Mr. Sumner argued that, althougb-the treaty was constitutionally made by the President, by and with the advice and oonsent of the Senate, it was not competent for either the Executive alone or in combination with the Senate to abrogate it; that it could only be terminated by act of law?that is, by the leg islation of both Houses, approved by the President. He oontended that such was the sole course permitted by the spirit of the Con stitution, and such was the rule prescribed by judioial authority and the uniform precedents of our Government, Mr. Mason controverted the views of the Senator from Massachusetts, and urged that the treaty has not so much been abrogated by the act of the President giving the notice as by tho necessary result of a contingency provided for in the treaty itself; that in fact the treaty expired by the terms of its own limitation. A protracted discussion ensued until the hour of adjournment, in whioh the subject was presented in various lights by Messrs. Fessenden, Collamer, Cass, Crittenden, Tou cey, and Stuart; after whioh the resolution was adopted, the implied oensure on the Execu tive, having been previously stricken out; and the Senate adjourned to Monday. In the House, yesterday, after we went to press, the annual West Point Academy and Pension appropriation bills were passed. The pending resolution authorising the Committee on Elections to send for persons and papers in the Kansas contested election case, being taken up, Mr. Boyce addressed the House at length against it, and Mr. Bing ham for it. This resolution being informally laid aside for the day, the Speaker laid before the House a communication from the Secretary of the Treasury recommending the construction of six small revenue cutters for servioe on the lakes, and to dispose of two largn cutters now employed there; referred to the Ways and Means Committee. Shortly afterwards the House adjourned. Frecee4iage ef Te?Day? In the Honae, to-day, after the introduc tion and reference of lundry resolutions Mr Clingman oalled for the regular order of business. Whereupon the Eleotion Committee's reso lution amtnorlaing them to send for persons and papers in the Kansas election ease again came up.
