Long a reader of your interesting paper, I row, or the Arst time, make myseli a contributor ol a few items, which will, at least, interest soma of the thousands who every where ask for the Herald A stranger in this mountain Title, which is tha present terminus of the New York and Erie Railroad, 1 thought a lew moments snatched to narrate a very exciting accident which occurred here or Saturday, the 13ih instant, might not be misspent * An itinerant magician, ventriloquist, Ac., had advertised that he would give an entertainment in his line at the Summit House, a little tavern situa'ad nearly at the top of the mountain, in the "No ch," about half a mile from the village. He had hung his curtain, and sat his table in tha attic of the main building, 16 by 21 leet, about one half rhe room being occupied by the audience, aiostly vdult natives, Irish, Yankees, conductors, engineers, baggage-masters, contractors, Ac , on toe railroad. All were well amused till nearly half his intended performances were ended, when, quiek as the quickest lightning, the whole of tha Moor on whicti the audience were seated, or rnLlier on which they were jammed and piled, fell, and precipitated ull hands on the second Aoor, which also gave way, and landed all safely iu the cellar, uinong soft-soap, candles, moln?fss, wiae, barrels, bueon, tubs, churns, tin pans, and many thar articles too numerous to mention, stove and novc-mpe, liuui, oroxen cnairs ana benches, with the fragments ot the two floora. Luckily no otto was hurt, which seems aim oat miraculous, as there wora about seventy persons in all, and tiiey tell 16 lect. 1 wiah 1 could daseribe the scone that tallowed, aothat my readers might imagine its horror. All waa utter darkaaaa, and lor three or four seconds atill aa death; while aucha cloud ol duat and ashes aroaoaa uo light could penetrate. It aeewtad to ua that oae halt were killed and the reat wounded. "Oh,oh!l nut killed- My leg ia broken?oh ! Get off of me. Uo take me out. Father! father! Where'a my wife! Fire! Oh! You are stamping rne to death! Ou! Fire! Help that woman, where'a my boy I Oh! oh! oh! Help! help!" These are a tew of the ejaculations which lrighl aloae uttered from the throats ol 60 or 70 men women and children, as they lay jammed iu that heap of ruins, all mixed together high'y-pighty, wedged in so fast that only a few ot the upper onea could move. Hut in ten or iifieen minutes we had ah crawled out, and laughed when we found no one waa hurt. Ere 1 elese I tn tut say a word about Otisville. Though 'ns a little vitle, 'tis an active one, aa more freight u brought in her.e than the railroad can take away as fast as m desired. Grain, ship timber, oars, chair stuff, fcc , lorm the principal freight winch is now brought in at this place. Many Germans and Irish tue arriving, seeking work westward on the line. Mew stores are buildinir, shops opening, and lulls are being levelled and streets opened. A spneious hotel, conducted by Joshn k Co , secuios tne patronage, which care for the comforts ol the traveller and Yankee energy and enterprise must always receive. It seems to nte that were the citizens ot your citv aware of the incalculable benefit their ity must derive from the Mew York and Eno Railroad, when completed, they would not remain so supine in regard to it. Even the sixtytwo miles which are now completed from the Hudson to this place, pour into the city so great an amount that the price o! some articles which oitizens daily consume has been reduced from V? to 50 per cent. 1 would write more, and speak of the delightful view Irom the Shawangunk, and the delightful breezes from the woods and lakes ol Sullivan, which play across it in the summer, and which your citizens can have any day in the summer for a trifle; but I must close.
