TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 4. Wonderful Escape.?One of the most wonderfu' escapes from instant death that baa been recorded lately took place yester? day. The story is told by Engineer Hinck ley, who ran the fast express South at 2:40 yesterday afternoon. The train was very late, owing to the smasbup on the Eoston and Albany, and after leaving Springfield was running very rapidly. Looking ahead the engineer saw a man walking on the i rack and going the same way as the engine. The fellow glanced back several times as the train ran toward him, and the engineer naturally euDposed the man would step off the track. He did nothing of the sort, how ? ver, and just as the train was upon him threw himself face downward on the ties between the tracks. The next instant the engine passed over the prostrate form. Not in one case out of a thousand would both the pilot and fire box of the engine have pa-fed over an object as large as a man's h dy, and in the thousandth case the proba b?irits would b...

Walton Field?, a compositor living in Lawrence ville, has at present in his possession a relic that is a very venerable one, being no lees than a pair of spectacles worn by John Wes? ley, the founder of Methodism.

_- T j : m ALE^A^^DRIA. FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 7. The Providence Journal is a pronounced supporter of a protective tariff. But it is an able and well informed paper, and by the ! conjoined facilities of excellent common sense, superior educational opportunities and deliberate consideration, is enabled to discuss the tariff in an intelligent manner, and upon premises derived from a thorough knowledge of the question. But with all its advantages for making converts to protec fioa.it, ia the expressive language of the police, ' gives itself away" completely when it says : '?It is only within receir. year? that the attempt has been made in public discussion to place high tariffand higo wage? in the il? lation of cause and effect ; and in roanv re? spects it is unfortunate that Bueh on argu? ment baa ever been adveiictd Indeed, the most intelligent advocate* of protection have never insisted upon it.

ALEXANDRIA. SATURDAY EYENTNG, OCTOBEB 8. Thk so QAIXED reformers of Baltimore cau't have much regard for the reputation of the city in which they live, and whose interests they profess to have so much at heart, as they proclaim to the world that it is in the hands and under the control of a set of ballot-box stuffers, greedy robbers and red-handed murderers. A city in such a miserable condition, of course, can attract only the vicious and criminal classes?peo pie with either money or character to lose, or with even lives that they care to pre? serve, naturally giving it a wide berth. As a general rule "reformers" are as unscrupu? lous in tbe means they employ to attain power, as those they desire to depose arc of retaining it.
