Tbe yesterday morning cxprm tram from Jrtnton to Oil City, on the Warren and Franklin railroad, was thrown from the track by a broken rail near President's station. Tbe smckiiig-car wai thrown over an embank* mailt sixty-five lert into'be river, wher- the Ice was strong etongh to hold it. It caught fire, ano three passenger* were oarily burned. The ladus' car was badly smashed, but for. tnnatelv the conpling broke, which wvJ it from going over an embankment. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher lectured at Newark IV. J , in favor ot universal suffrage, incUiditig black and white men and women,
pauper*, and foreigner*, intending to remain in tbe country.-He claimed voting to be a natural, inherent right. Tbe Connecticut Democratic Xtate Committee has issued a call for & State Convention at ?w Haven, on tbe Sth of January, for the purpose of considering the revolutionary a^t? of ihe present C> ngre-e. < 0!VGRESII01AL. Senate-The bill lor the admission of IS>oraska beinr under consideration yesterday atternoon? Mr. Johnson understood the amendment to place the admission npon two gronuds:?1. T'-at new States could be admitted; and i That Congress should guarantee a republican form of government. These were questions to l?e considered beyond the political questions of the day. These Suites ought not to be admitted until the necessity became apparent. To give such States two Senators wbeu States With a population of 4.090,(100 had no more, would seem to be very unwise. He donbted if there were more than voters in that S'ate >Ir. Wilson moved an amendment providing that the Legislature should have tbe right to decide the question of suffrage, whereupon it should become a part of the law of the State, and the Slate should be admitted. Mr Wilson believed that the great West was regarded by the Fastern S'ates as their own child: they had no jealousy toward her and none could be anticipated. He had long ago seen that the President had fallen into the hands ol evil advisers, and thnta great conflict was impending. The country had pronounced against him. Last session it wai uncertain whether tbe president or the cause of liberty should have control of this body, and he had felt that it was important that the vote of Colorado should be on tne side of treedom. During the last thirty years he had giveu his support to the cause of freedom, and he had ielt it his duty to vote then for the admission ol Colorado. The necessity for that vote had now passed away; the Republican partv had now over two-thirds minority. He believed they should now Impose this condition, lu a lew dajsthe Legislature could vote on the question, and in a little while their representatives could be here. He believed that before the 4th of March the Constitutional amendment would be adopted. He believed, too, that it w as their duty to take the Government out of the hands of rebels and put it iu the hands ol loyal men His amendment was copied from the Missouri bill of 1M1 By the suggestion ot Mr. Williams, the amendment was modi lied so as to include the words, '-excluding Indians not taxed." Mr. Doolittle inquired whether the Senator understood that the fa>th of Congress was pled^-d to the admission of the Southern State* on their adoption of the Constitutional amendpieii I. Mr. Wilson had voted for the admission of T"ime>see because clie was fitted to come in: hut Congress had made no pledge, and he would go to the uttermost verge of constitutional power in insisting that they must refpect tbe rights of life, liberty, and property, and be thought the only way to do that was io give the ballot to all men. He thought it their duty to take these government* out of the bunds ji rebels w ho bad no right to hold them. Mr Doolittle wanted Senators to detlm- their position.

Boyd urg^d that tbe enemy were alresdy making their threats tbat d?d anger* shouldn't ?ul?, and br urged that in** party should o ganue with tbe blacks and prepar?Itr any imergency. Mr. i'srey Vt hite said be couldn't see tb# expediency of culling in the colored men now, and asserted tbat in rome of tbe wards tbe republican* would be outnumbered by the blacks tbree to one. He remarked tbat in four out of the seven warda tbe dsrktes wonld control tbe election, and be believed tbat tbe darkey a* a race was opposed to interning line with tbe whites Col. R. J. Hinton. of Kanaaa. aaid be came into tbe nssociatior believing tbat there waa no diatinc.uon a* to race or color, aud be argued that the member* should immediately go to work. There waa no better field for m i. aionary work than tbe iHstrtct of Colombia. Aa be understood it, tbe aeaociauon waa not made for any one data. He d'd not believe that there was a single ward in Washington in which the white Kepublicana had a majority. Tbe question which they abould consider is. bow can tbe municipal' election be carried' The time had gone by wheu there should b? any distinction made. The question ot suffrage bad been forever settled. If we are to make Wa?birsgton tree, all prejudices should be set nside. 1 be question la whether tbe (Government of tbe city shall remain in tbe band* of tbose who have been imposing on the colored race; w ho have withheld tbe money justly dne them.

Tbe only hope of redeeming tbe city goverumen' from the oid influence is to meet these people halt-way, and with them fight the hos's of bell. Mr. White remarked that tbe passage of the resolution would drive off many good Kepoti. Iicana. H?-denied that tbe suffrage bill waa passed for this city only. Mr Hinton replied that they could not drive oft more white Repnblicsus than they would draw blacks. He bad beard Sumner say tbat he voted for tbe bill as a standard to fight bv. There were 3)M*A> blacks iu this District, and he believed tbat there were 5 blacks to I white Republican He believed the majority of ibes?. people would btaud ofl uuless the Asi-ociatiou took tome action, and they abould do something to secure their votes. He did not propose to ask them to break up a single organisation they now have, but ne would have them come into tne Association. If they have a majority let them have control, and it any of them are qualified let u? send them to tbe Coun it Boards Mr. Clarence Barton said be would vote for the resolutions liecanse he believed in the sentence of the ('oastitution "that all men ars free and equal." He Nlieved that in what bad b?*en said by the I'residen", "tbat merit made the man.*' He would vote for any one on a Republican ticket. Mr L.. K Dudley said rbat they needed to organise to prevent tne Democrats from ge . tint: tbe negro vote. They were also bidding for the colored vote. The blacks were the very men to redeem the District, and the association should work to obtain their votes The Chair remarked that he ruled *ba* any man, irrespective of color or race, could be a member of tbe association, aud bad a black man come into a meeting be wonld have reoog ei/j-d biai. Mr. F. A. Bos well remarked that b? bad been for five yeats fighting weak-kneed ReI ublicaaa. Mr. White?What do you mean by weakkneed htvublitans Mr. BosVeil.?Those who are atraid to meet the issuea squarely. He, in tbe Philadelphia Con\entien, Uibnd thr Southern delegates a:I right, bnt many from the North seemed afraid to meet the issue. He remarked that duriug the war he was in a draft association, and m that association there was some rebels. These men mixtd with the colored men then, met together, conferred together. Ac., and he saw no r?^oii why these men abould be ao parti u|?tr now. A square Republican never wa?elected here, and never would be unless the colored people helped the Kepublicana. Mr. White said he did not object to mixing in w ith tbe blacks, bat doubted whether the adoption of tbe resolutions ware expedieu'. He was in lavor of giving up the charter, as he saw noprospect of getting the present incumbents in the city government out. when those now in conld obtain Sou votes a1 a crark. Mr. Bosweil thought there were 3,0b" bla k tr eu in tbe Seventh Warn, and he understood tbat tbe Arsenal was about to give employmmtto about 20<i of tbem in order to secure tbe re-election of Oeorge Wright next Juue. It we fcave to sut mil and not make an effort to secure the votes of the colored people becanee there is danger of losing a dozen or so white votes, we had better shut up shop. Mr N. H. Miller didn't know of any difference in tbe association. The colored men could vote as they pleased, but be bad no idea tbat they wonld vote tbe Democratic ticket. He was not iu favor of separate white and colored organizations, but wanted tbem to nnite. It was necessary lor them to organize, as there was mnch to do here. During tbe war there were more rebels here than in Sooth Carolina. He believed now tbat there were fifty blacks here to one white Bepnblican. and it was tbe duty ol tbe white Republicans to let tbem k?iow that thev had eqnal rights with tbe whites, and in the offices they sbonld have equal shares. Dr. Boyd urged that If the association made any distinction they may as well dig their grave, for they will die as dead as Mottes the second, who bad buried himaelf in oblivion, if any diaunctton is made, tbe Seventh Ward would withdraw. They were done with all fiddling and dry-bone rattling. If yon make a diatincUon you are dead for all eternity. colored men are now asking if they cab meet with the Republican Association. He waa proud of being Bailed a Black Republican. If you want to be succesafnl youmnatdo your beet to ontwalk and out-talk the crowd m the City Hall. Mr C- 8. Bates moved to amend the resolution by striking ont the clause ' alter the holidays." so tbat tbe committee sbonld go to wotkatonee. He understood that an election wonld take place in Oeorgetowu in February, and it was necessary for arrangements to be made at once. Mr. Brown suggested tbat they had better not go too fast. Suppose the bill should be vetoed. The amendment was adopted, and as amended the first resolution was adopted. Col. Atbinun, of Oa.; Judge Hiestand. ot La . and Mr. Leslie, of S. C . addressed the meeting: after which, the second resolution was adopted. Mr. I*. E. Dudley offered the following: which was adopted: RtirJred, Tbat ever* member of this association be requested to can vasa bis friend* in tbe several Government departments, and report to the next meeting of this association tbe names of all who will consent to lake their residence and exercise the elective franchise m tbis District. Mr Bosweil offered the followtac. the consideration of which were postponed for one week: Hetolredi That tbe several ward organizations shall make a weekly report or the nam>'? and number of persons elected as members of tn?ir organisations to bs duly recorded on tbe journal. Be it further re fired. That oa the latt m*e?. iag night, prior to any city election. tbeolC era of ea<. b ward organisation will make a general report of svery member of bis orgaaiaauon u> this organizauon. ket'Jved, That two weeks pnor to any election tbe presiding officer of each ward organisation shall appoint as many cauvnater* of his ward as he shall deem necessary, who shall take tote of the a amber of voter* of his ward that he supposes will be polled and report the same, with his last nreekly report pnor to auy election, to this Central orgaaiaattoa.
