Verdict of the jury on the late collision on the Grand Trunk Railway. The coroner’s jury which has been in ses sion several days, investigating the circum stances that caused the collision of the two freight trains on the Graud Trunk Railway at Falmouth last Monday uight, concluded their inquest on Saturday. Their verdict is that “Pennell and Thurston died from injuries re ceived on Monday the 25th day of July, at about 8.35 P. M., by a collision between a special construction train and regular freight train No. 10, on the Grand Trunk Railroad, at a point between Falmouth and Cumlierland, on said road; that said collision occurred by reason of the carelessness ot the conductor and engine driver of said special train, in leaviug Cumberland for Falmouth at a time when said train No. 16 was entitled to the road; that it was clearly the duty of said con ductor and engineer, by the rules of the road, to have delayed said special train at Cumber land until said train No. 16 had passed: that neither of the colliding traius bore head lights; that though the testimony of witnesses, ex amined at this inqnest, does not warrant us in concluding, that the collision could have been avoided if said trains bad carried head lights, we believe that the trains could thereby have been seeu from a greater distance, and that an opportunity being thus afforded the engine drivers of more speedily reversing their en gines, the concussion might have been less dangerous; that accordingly we would rec ommend, as a measure of prudence, that en gine drivers of night traius be required to use head lights upon their engines in all cases, when circumstances do not make it impracti cable.” The verdict is signed by C. H. Hall, Coro ner, and David Keazer, Robertson Dyer, John T. Rogers, Moses B. Nickerson. Charles Mc Laughlin, and J. Harris Cressey, as Jurors. Upon the rendition of this verdict Coroner Hell ordered the arrest of Mr. Henry B. Hus sey the engine driver of the special traiu, who will have an examination before the Munici pal Court. He is the oldest engine driver on that road, with the exception of “Uncle Jake Nichols.” His arrest is according to Sec. 8, Chap. 139, Revised Statues. Brocksieper'e Gas Regulator. We hsve before referred to this wonderful improvement to secure economy, and a steady, clear light iu the consumption of illuminating gas, but we cau do no better service for all gas consumers than renewedly to call their atten tion to it. We are aware of the thousand aud one impositions that have been practiced upon our citizens in relation to gas burners under the plea of economy, and know how to appre ciate their doubts and ominous shakes of the head when auything of the kind is proposed to them. We have the gas-i egulators in use in our office, and know what kind of liyht they secure. We know the flame is clear, white, steady and uniform, unaffected as the even ing advances, by neighboring lights being shut off. On the score of economy in gas bills we will not speak, lor we have not used the regu lator loug enough to know from actual obser vation, in this direction. But we invite our gas-cousumitig friends to visit room lftl Mid dle street, up stairs, where, by the use of a test metre their doubts will all be dissipated. More than this: the lest metre is a beautiful piece of mechanism, and five minutes observation of its workings will repay any person for bis trouble, who has any taste for such examinations. Mr Goodell. the agent, is au intelligent gentle man, who will not fail to gratify every reason able desire of those who wish to gain informa tion in relation to the matter he has in band. We cannot better close this notice than by copying the following certificate, which speaks for itself. The original has been in our pos session :— American' Museum, New York, 1 June 27, 1804. ) Irtiny Hull, Esq-,—Dear Sir: Alter hav ing tried more than twenty different kinds of “gas savers,” every one of which I consider utterly worthless, 1 confess it was with great reluctance that 1 consented to give your “Reg ulator” a trial. Now, however, after having had your “Regulator” placed on all my burn ers throughout the American Museum, as well as my house in Bridgeport, Conn., and in full operation for three months, 1 must say that 1 was scarcely ever more delightfully surprised. Tour “Regulators” work to a charm. It is impossible for the gas to blow, or waste, where your “Regulator” is applied. Hence a steady and uniform light is always secured, and an absolute saving is made in my gas-bills of more than thirty per cent., besides giving me a far better light. Truly yours, P. T. Baiinum.

THE BATTLE STILL PROGRESSING. » ! Bai.timokk, July 31. I \\ e have the glorirous newsfrom Gen. Grant by tbe Old l'oiut boat, that tbe seige of Pe tersburg has had an auspicious commeuce i j uient. The news received this morning is as follows: The seige of Petersburg lias opened in earn est, This (Saturday) morning at daybreak we blew up one of tbe rebel batteries, cousisl ! iug of 1(5 guns, and had carried three tiers of t earthworks of the rebels, before the mail .

Second Dlepatch.—All doubt as to the good news from Gen. Grant's army, seems to be re moved. A late dispatch, just received, says: C The assault commenced at four o’clock on Saturday morurng, by a terrible explosion, which completely destroyed one of the ene my’s principal forts in front of Petersburg, coutaiuing 10 guns, this was rendered a mass of ruins. Immediately upon this explosion our artillery opeued one simultaneous autl continuous roar along our whole Hue. ’ Up to the leaving of the mail boat at ten o’clock, we bad captured the two outer earth works and also the entire line of rebel en trenchments. The battle continued to pro gress with the greatest fury. HZAIMjUABTKRS ARMY POTOMAC, ( July 30—10 A. M. ) The great event so long anticipated, naine I ly, tiie explosion of the mine under the rebel fort in front of the 0th army corps, came off this morning at 40 minutes past 4 o'clock.— Picket tiring was kept up all night and in fact at the time the match was applied, the skir mishes were still engaged on both sides. Vol umes of dirt were thrown up rising over .'500 feet in the air, resembling an immense foun tain of earth, more than anything else. The Kill army corps at once charged the works driving the rebels to their second line of entrenchments, and taking a number of prisoners, some of whom were dug from tbe riirt hllfllv hniianH Thosa roltal nricAnon. state that only about a dozen of their regi ment, a South Carolina one, uew remaius. As soon as the explosion took place, 120 guns immediately opened on our trout, while musketry blazed in one continuous line of fire , along the front of the nth and Oth corps. The scene will long be remembered by those who witnessed it. The smoke from the guus soon obscured the view, and the first particu lars of our success were gleaned from those who came in with prisoners, j The pi isoners state that we completely sur prised those in their front, they being mostly asleep at the lime. The prisoners also state that there were four guns iu the fortiflcatious which of course were buried far out of sight. One of the prisoners slated that they were busy miuing under onr works, and that in two days more they would have been ready to blow us up, but we got the start of them. latest.

Defeat of the Haitler* at McCon aelahury. Harrisburg. Pa., July 30. A conversation with a gentleman attached to a newspaper establishment at Chambers burg, who lelt there at 8 o'clock this tnoruiug, reveals the following facts: People received intelligence yesterday of the approach ol the rebels. Business men commenced packiug up their stock, and before 10 o'clock last night most of the valuab’e mer chandize was sent far beyond the reach of the , rebels. At 3 o’clock this afternoon the rebel force, 800 mounted iufantry. reached Chamber-burg and encamped on the Fair grounds. This force was met a short di-tance from Merciens burg by a small party of troops from Carlisle barracks, who fought tire advance stubbornly, but were compelled to withdraw on account of the overwhelming numbers of the iuvaders. Gen. Averill is reported as having engaged the centre iu a hot tight, and it is said be is tailing back on Chauit>er»burg. If this is so, his position must be a perilous one, and he is ' l.kely to be surrounded any moment should J the rebels leave Cuambcrsburg to meet him, and those moving from Waynesboro also join ' in the assault. The rolling stock of the Cumberland Val ’ ley road is Ireiug removed to this place. It is said the rebels l.ave burnt tbe Court House, r Town Hall, aud the residence of Col. McClure of Cbambersburg. Various estimates are iu»ue as hi iue uuuiuer 01 me luvauiug lorce, the lowest putting them down at 30.0U0. At 1 o’clock to-day they had made no ad vance beyond Chambersburg, aud our forces still hold Shippenburg. Most positive information lias been received tbatGeu. Averill has drove the rebels out of Chambersburg, and is following them west ward tawarda LoudoD, Franklin county.

This must uot he misconstrued, as public safety and military success requires se crecy. ’ Col. McClure has just received a dispatch from an operator iu the field, a few miles from j Chambersburg, that the rebels have tired the , town. This was done because they were foiled iu getting the plunder they expected. Hakkisbiko, July 31. Gen. McCausland was in command of the rebel troops when they burned Chamliersburg. lie issued a proclamai ion demanding $100 mw iu gold, but it was impossible to comply, and an order was issued to lire the court house, towu hall and hank buildings. Parlies ol sol | diers having sacked the several drug and chemical stores, manufactured tur|>entiuc balls which they threw in all directions, creating as many differin'. flames, which soon united iu one grand conflagration. Speedily the scene became appalling by the crackling aud roaring ol the dames and shrieks of terrified women. Panic stricken and suffering children, with the pitiful appeals ol the old and helpless, formed an iudeaciihable scene of horror. Two hundred aud sixty-five of the most valuable and eligible public and private dwellings were destroyed. The town was tired at about 11 o'clock iu (he forenoon. The rebels remained just long enough to see the flames get under proper headway, when au alarm was given that Aver 11 was approaching the town. Iu stautly every freebooter was iu his saddle and huiriedly took the St. Thomas road, wiih Av . erill in pursuit. No intelligence has reached Harrisburg con cerning the direct effect of A verill’s attack, hut it is believe 1 ihat he succeeded iupunish | log McCausland severely. A train heavily laden with commissary stores was dispatched from this city this morn 1 Ing to Chambersburg to relieve the present e wants ol homeless women aud children, who p now crowd the surrounding fields and woods. Many residences of prominent citizens in the i outskirts of the town were burned. Philadelphia, July 31. I Prominent citizens of Cbambersburg have issued an appeal to the beuevolent people of tbe North lor aid. Ii appears that McCausland demanded #50, 0(Xl R) save the town Irom burning,but with out waiting lor the citizens to remove their j effects they fired the bouses in fifty places. Upwards of 250 houses in the heart of the town were burned, iucluding all the public buildiugs, hotels. <tc., comprising about two thirds of the place. The loss will reach a million of dollars.

That paper of Friday last, editorially, says: We have a national debt that will enslave fifty generations to come, as a consequence.— Could disunion without war be any more dis astrous?
