The Union characterises the act of the op position majority, yesterday, in expelling the Hon. Mr. Allen from his seat, as simply an ef fort to strengthen the chance of Fremont to reach the Presidency. The same paper ex plains that those who are supporting Fromont under the notion that something may be made for thamselves out of his ownership of the Mariposa grant, in case of his election, are throwing away their labors. The Intelligencer says of the current Sena torial propositions to amend the patent laws : ?? The subject of Patents for Useful Inven tions is one of growing interest in this country, and the inventive genius of our countrymen has even made an impression in the Old World, from which quarter high honors have been awarded. Mr. James, of Rhode Island, in troduced into the Senate, some time ago, from the Committee on Patents, a bill which at tracted a good deal of attention. It has not Set fme up for Aral consideration, but Mr. award, on Thursday, introduced a substi tute for it, which deserves notice. It omits, as we learn, the radical provisions of Mr James's bill which relate to the extension of patents, the review of decisions of the Com missioner in granting patents by scire facias, Ac , and confines itself to certain amendments necessary to relieve the Patent Office of much heavy labor, and expedite tne transaction of the patent business therein. Inventors will scan all these movements with a elose refer ence to their own interests, and the public at large have an interest in them scacely less important. That the subjeot is one of great delicaev is evinced by the earnest debates which have occurred within a few days past in regard to reaping machines." WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP Cantral America ?Our columns have been so overwhelmed with domestic matters of late as to have prevented us from bestowing upon the last advices from Nicaragua, even a pass ing notice. The substance of the news is, that, on the 12th ultimo, Rivas and the na tives of his cabinet with a single exception, availed themselves of an opportun ty to es cape from Walker's clutches Think of it?a President running away from his own Oov ernment, and setting up another in opposition to it! That thing Rivas and his cabinet did on the 12th ultimo. Whereupon Walker pro claimed him a traitor ! Now these facta com pletely bear out our persistent representations that the Presidency of Rivas was little more than a forced blind to disguise the fact that Walker was the supreme dictator of Nicar agua, by virtue of the rifles, revolvers and bowie knives of his fillibustors. The humbug of the connection of Rivas and a handful of natives with Walker's fortunes has now come to an end, and he stands countenanced and supported there only by adventurers who flock to him from this country. The solution of the question, how much longer he oan maintain his position??rests wholly with the previous solution of the question, how many more thou sands from the United States will rush to Nicaragua to die of the black vomit and cholaraT?and how many more fools there are among us to advance money on Walker's magnificent promises to pay, with whioh to keep him supplied with clothing, arms and ammunition? We presume that at least six or seven thousand persons in all from the United States, have joined his army. Perhaps fifty have managed to return to this country, nearly every man of them with ruined consti tutions. fie has, perhaps, a thousand remain ing, who are half starved and not half clothed, as all his troops have been from the beginning The rest have gone?the way of all flesh ; a few comparatively dying by violence (on the field of battle and in private squabbles among themselves.) while the rest of his other dead have fallen victims to the climate and diseases of the country. Who wants to go next! Mr. Burwell't Letter ?The reasons im pelling Wm. M. Burwell. Esq., late the editor of the Washington Organ, to withdraw from the Know Nothing party, must fall with con vincing force on the minds of all opposition men in the South who have not made up their minds to be used really to aid the election of Fremont under the pretence of supporting Fillmore. We quote his letter in question as follows, vis : " The first national action of the party en couraged the hope that it would realise this patriotic expectation It announced in June, 1865, that it would maintain the existing leg islation upon the subject of slavery as a set tlement of the question Under this declara tion some thirty-three members of Congress were elected by the American party in the Southern States. ?? In February, 1856, this polioy was changed, i be pledge to maintain existing legislation was substituted by a creed in which not only ihe subject, but the name of slavery is care fttfly ignored. The guarantee for the admis sion of new slave States, specifically given by the deelaration of 1855, ia replaced by an ar ticle which recognixes the right of legal citi xens of a territory " to frame their own eon stitution and laws, and to regulate thair own ilamtstic ?.nH ?n?i i? ? , Himrusrai uonstitutioff," which last phrase, under the interpretation of the dominant majority in Congress, means precisely the same thing. With this restric tion, the 44 pledge" of admission into the Union is granted to the territorial State whenever it " shall have the requisite population for one representative in Congress "At the same time, and upon the same prin ciples of neutm'ity, the American party nom inated for its candidate a gentleman of integ rity and patriotism, but did not require him to aay whether he would, if elected, veto a bill re storing the Missouri, restriction or repealing the Kansas act. Tboae who have regarded the pending ouestion too important to ne left in doubt hare been informed that the nominee is "platform enough," and that his past offi cial aetJ afford a sufficient assurance of his future. Taking bis signature of the Compro mise of 1850, as the moet prominent of these acts, we enoounter insurmountable difficulties of construction. The friends of the Kansas act contend that it is a legitimate deduction from the compromise of 1850, but thousands who advocated that compromise assert that the Kansas act is a fl agrant violation of that meas ure. If the inference that the K&aaai act re sulted from the compromise is inevitable, there could be no controversy upon the subject. But there is a radioal difference upon this subject, therefore the position of the American nominee upon this question is doubtful, and those who are disposed to support him may, without impugning his integrity, ask his con struction upon the consistency of the Kansas act with the Compromise of 1850, and whether it is his purpose to maintain or repeal it Un til some suoh declaration shall be made, the Americans at the South are wholly without assurance against the continued agitation of a dangerous question, or of having rights, deem ed by them invaluable, surrendered by the act of their own representatives. ??The 'J"1? ?pon whioh parties hare organ* for the ensuing campaign is : 11 Shall any more Slave States be admitted in the Union?'1 foremost and most formidable in this con test stands the Black Republican party, a dangerous compound of fanaticism and polit cal oupidity. It is numerous and of powerful resources ; it is led by ambitious and saga* cious men ; it intends to employ the numbers of the North to subjugate the South and gov ern the country. Its material of warfare ooc sist in impeaching the title of your property, defaming your character and combining the most despotio and lawless influences in a cru sade against you. Its plan of warfare is to cut off the supplies ana communications of slavery, to invest its citadel and to send in a flag inscribed, 41 Assault or unconditional surrender." " The Democratic party has been, by force of circumstances, placed 'n direct antagonism to this partv. It stands not only pledged, but oommitted beyond the power of recantation or withdrawal, to maintain your rights as politi cal equals in this confedracy. " with my opinions, neutrality would be at this important orisis little better than treason. 1 shall therefore vote for the Democratic can didate at the ensuing Presidential election, because that is the only party committed to assert the rights of the South, and because the opinions avowed by that party upon the subject of slavery represent my own " The Very Last?Bennett'i Herald, is suf fering almost ths torments of the d?d, on ac count of the shabby manner in which (it says) the friends of Piercc, Douglas, and Cass are treating James Buchanan?plotting, accord ing to this devoted advocate of the election of the Democratic nominee, to secure the elec tion of John C. Breckinridge by the Senate to the Presidency. The truth is, that gimlet-eye of Bennett's sees about twice as far through a millstone as an ordinary eye; whioh acoounts for his discovery of this terrible plot against the election of the candidate about whose tri umph he has suddenly become so very solicit ous. It happens, unfortunately for the theory of this last quiuical mare's nest of his, that the friends of Pierce, Dougias, and Cass do not intend to let the Presidential election question enter either House of Congress. If I hs (Bennett) could for an hour peer with his gimlet eye into the correspondence received at this point by the friends of the three distin guished gentlemen named above, his earnest solicitude least Buchanan should be cheated by his own household would vanish; for he could not fail to discover that the Democratio Presidential nominee stands no chance what the situation in which, according to Bennett, he is to be cheated. That is, he can never be a candidate before the House,? insomuch as the fourth day (Tuesday) of No vember will consign him, directly, to the Pres idency, with a majority of electoral votes larger than the aggregate united electoral votes received by both his competitors. Mr Burlingame?We owe it to this gen tleman to publish the following appendix, which we find at the end the last speech (de livered by Mr. Brooks, of South Carolina, be cause, in commenting on that of Mr. Keitt, we were under the erroneous idea that he had refused to admit his personal responsibility for personalities spoken in debate. Appxsbix.?The imprudence of evil-dis posed persons, who, by newspaper articles and in private conversations, have done injustice both to the Hon Mr. Burlingame and myself renders it necessary that the subjoined memo randa should be appended to my speech : Mr. Burlingame, in a fair and manly way admitted his responsibility for any language used in his speech, and disclaiming any in tention to reflect upon the personal character of Mr Brooks or to impute to him in any re spect a want of courage ; but, discriminating between the man and the act to which he was called upon to allude, he had characterized tte latter only in such manner as his repre sentative duty required him to do. The above is a statement made by Mr. Bur lingame in reference to the passage in his late speech, which referred to Mr. Brooks. It is in the hand writing of Mr. Speaker Banks and was acknowledged by Mr. Burlingame in our presence, and was satisfactory to us as friends of Mr Brooks. WW Butch. July 15,1IM. Th b Bocock. Cruel ?-The failure of the Uouso to install Mr. Archer in the seat of Mr. Allen, of Illi nois. It has spoiled a very pretty intrigue, indeed ; one to secure the vote of Illinois for Fremont in the remote contingenoy-that the Presidential election may come to the House Mr. Thurlow Weed, with his particular staff of back bone doctors, were among us during the last coitest over this subject matter, laboring like good fellows to carry the Republican par ty point. But, alas, Dr. Greeley was absent: so their patient died yesterday. Back bone liniment is, to-day, decidedly at a discount, with sush physicians only to administer it. Confirmed.?We are of impression that yes terday afternoon the President sent to the Senate the nominations of John Forsyth, of Alabama, to be Minister to Mexico, and Wm. Feme, of the same State, to be his Secretary of Legation, and that they were confirmed ere the Senate adjourned. If not, there can be no doubt of their confirmation. P. S. The Senate have not yet acted on tnese nominations. Confirmed -Anselim Arnold, of Nebraska Territory, to be Agent fer the Shawnee and wyandott Indians, in the place of Wm. Gay deceased.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the bill for the relief of Obed Hussey was discussed bj many Senators nntil, with out taking the question on its passage, they went into Executive session. At the termina tion of their Executive session they trans acted some business of no general interest, and then they adjourned until Monday. In the House, at the conclusion of the speooh of Mr. Win. B. Aroher, the contestant in the Illinois election case, Mr. Waiihburne, of Me., delivered a speech in favor of that gentle man's claim. The question was then put on the following resolution, reported by Mr. W. from the Elec tions Committee : Resolved, That James C. Allen was not elected and is not entitled to a seat In this House. Agreed to?yeas 94, nays 90. The question was also put on the following resolution, reported from the same eommittee : Resolved, That William B. Aroher was elected and is entitled to a seat in this House. Rejected?yeas 89, nays 91. Mr. Clingman moved to reconsider that vote, and to lay the motion to reconsider on the table. Mr Campbell of Ohio, demanded the yeas and nays on that motion ; ordered?yeas 90, nays 90?the Speaker voted in the negative The question being on the motion to re consider ; it was not reconsidered?yeas 91, navs 95. Mr. Stephens of Georgia, submitted the fol lowing preamble and resolutions Whereas this House having declared that neither James C. Allen nor William B. Arch er is entitled to a seat on the floor from the seventh Congressional district of Illinois : Be it resolved, That in the judgment of this House, a vacancy exists in said district, and that the election which was contested in this House therefrom be referred back to the peo ple of the district, and that the Speaker of this House notify the Governor of that State of this resolution of this House Resolved, That the Clerk of this House be directed to pay to William B. Archer, of Illi nois, claiming to have been elected to this House from the seventh Congressional district in that State, his mileage and per diem to this date. These resolutions havinfc been agreed to by separate votes, shortly afterwards they ad journed. Preceedlngs ef Te-Day. The Senate did not meet tc-day. In the House, various reports, embracing private bills, Ac., were made from many com mittees, all of wbioh were committed or other wise appropriately disposed of. Nothing of public interest transpired in the Hall ere the Star went to press THE BAILBOAD COLLISION. The Philadelphia papers of yesterday are filled with the distressing accounts of the col lision on the North Pennsylvania Railroad, by which fifty-two lives were lost, and about?ene hundred wounded, fnlly one third of whom can scarcely survive. The Ledger says : The excursion train proceeded at a rather slow rate for some miles, owing to the great weight to be drawn Then, fearful that he would not reach the station in time for the down train, Mr. Hopple ordered an increase of speed, and as the train approached Dewey's Lane, which is about 12J miles from the cLy, it was running at quite a rapid rate. Still, no accident was apprehended, as the rules of the road required the down train to wait fir teen minutes at the station, and if the up train did not then appear, to send a man on horse back, with a flag, ahead, to give notice that the train was coming. The regular train for the city, leftGwynned at 6 o'clock and 14 minutes, the conductor being Mr Vanstavoren. At eighteen minutes after 6 o'clock the train reached Fort Wash ington station. Finding that the excursion train had not arrived Mr. Vanstavoren de termined to proceed slowly. He was cautioned, it is alleged, that he was ahead of time, but maintained that he was not, and the train went on. Thus, then, the excursion train was approaching the curve of Dewey 's Lane at a rapid rate, while the down train was coming at an ordinary rate of speed?and neither con ductor was anticipating any trouble?when | there was a sudden shriek of the steam whistle and a turning down of breaks?all too late. The iron horse of the excursion train thun dered around the curve and plunged into the opposing train with an awful crash. A scene ensued that appals all attempts at description. The three foremost cars of the excursion train, with their precious burden of human life, were crushed .to pieces upon the locomo tive and tender, and while a large number of the occupants were instantly killed and man gled in a horrible manner, the shrieks of the wounded?and of those who, though unhurt, cried out in agony of dread?sent a thrill of terror to the hearts of all who heard them that can never be forgotten. To add to the horrors of the scene, the broken engine set fire to the cars of the excursion train, and a number of the passengers who were unable to get out, were actually roasted alive ! Lines of men were formed, who speedily pro cured buckets and axes, with which they en deavored to entinguish the flames and rescue the unfortunate passengers The fire raged with fury, however, and utterly defied the ex ertions of these persons, who were compelled to witness the shocking spectacle of men, w? men and children being burned to death, without having it in their power to extend any aid. At this time the aspect of the wreck of Ihe cars, lit up with the devouring flatnes, and rendered ghastly by the projection calcu lated to sicken the sternest heart. The down train suffered considerably by the collision. It consisted of the locomotive Ara mingo, a tender, a smoking and baggage car, and a passenger car. Not more than twenty passengers were aboard. The locomotive and tender were broken by the shock, and the cars considerably injured. The passengers were either pitched out down the embank ment-here about ten feet?or tumbled to gether in a manner to receive severe injuries. The engineer and firemen were badly hurt. But all attention was directed to the shock ing mass of wreck, death and misery among the remains of the excursion train. As the number of assistants increased, the flames were more vigorously assailed, and large num bers of wounded were extricated and placed by the roadside. Persons were sent to the nearest farm houses, and the country people hastened, with all the appliances at hand, to the scene of horror. Finally the flames of the burning cars were extinguished, principally through the aid of the Chestnut Hill Fire Company, and then the persons at the scene who were unhurt had ample opportunity to take speedy measures for attending to the wounded, and removing the remains found among the ruins. Now came a fresh series of horrors. Eleven mtj, women and children had been burned to death in one car. They were caught under one of the sides and roasted, so that the re ma'u6 when extricated presented a shocking spectacle. The mangled remains of four men and women and a child were dug from beneath the engine and tender. The remains of an infant were found under the ruins of the en gine, in the ash-pan, The remains of six other bodies were raked out of the ashes and ranged tide by side on the grass. The North American says : At the scene of the disaster, the excitement among the surviving passengers, and those who came to the ground, was at one time di rected against Mr. Wm Vanstavoren, the con ductor of the down train, whose violation of the rules of the road was alleged to have caused the appallinycalamity. That gentle man had borne the reputation of being a care ful, intelligent and reliable man, and many were at a loss to explain his eonduot. Soon after the aocident he came to the city, and immediately proceeded to bis residence, at Tenth and Buttonwood streets. There, it is said, he appeared to be laboring under a gloomy excitement, either proceeding from mental trouble, or injuries received by the collision. He went out and returned about dinner time, when he retired to bed. About 5 o'clock in the afternoon be was found dead. The story that he had committed suicide by taking arsenic was spread throughout the oity, furnishing material for the gossips, who have never a suthoient mouthful when a calamity of this kind oocurs. Others said that grief and remorse killed bim. Bat the brother of Mr. Vanstavoren called at our office to inform as that the unfortunate conductor had died from internal injuries received by the shock of the collision. The Times says: Various stories and opinions hare been given in regard to (he prevention of the eatastro phe. Bat a statement in reference to the con struction of the road will enable our readere to form a better idea in regard to the same than either the itoriea or speculation famished. For the distance of about a mile in the vi cinity of the disaster, the road oonsists prin cipally of two curves which form the letter S ; ao that the engineer of a train coming up be leW the station, and passing the same without stopping, would not be able to diaoera the down train before coming directly upon it And in thia oaae, as the oars did not atop at Camp Hill, but were proceeding at the usual rate to Fort Washington, neither the engineer or eonduotor discovered the regular train from ttwynedd until too late to aroid the ca* tastrophe. The Ledger says : This dreadfal affair, we ? resume, will be thoroughly investigated he blame ia thrown by many upon the con ductor of the excursion train, who, it is aaid, disobeyed the standing instructions of the company by not stopping the train and wait ing for the down train, when he found that he was behind time A fearful amount of re sponsibility rests upon somebody's shoulders On the other hand, it is said that the engineer of the down train was ahead of time, and that this was the cause of the collision. A gentleman who saw the accident, and was within fifty yards of the spot where the collision occurred, states that the oars on both trains were running about thirty miles an hour. On coming in sight of each other, both whistled for "down brakes," but the dista'nce was too short to prevent a collision On com ing together, botn engines struck with a tre mendous force, reared up and fell over on their sides, the bottoms of both engines coming together. The first two passenger cars per formed the aame evolutions aa the engines, the third car being piled on the first two, making a eomplete wreck of all, the force of the collision scattering the burning cinders among the cars and setting them on fire. Two freight cars, belonging to the down train, containing milk, were also burnt?making the scene one of the most terrible ever be held. PERSONAL. ....
