By telegraph., I gave you the result of the 1 . 1 Cm Treat trotun inarcn yesteruay auuiuoi:i over er WESr JEIlSEY E.AILR0AD- A -meeting of the Stockholders of the West-Jersey Railroad was held at the hotel of James Elwcll, in Camden on Tuesday, at which every county through which the road will pass was fully represented. Speeches were made by Capt. John W. Mickle, T. Jones Yorke, R. P. Thompson, Thos. II. Whitney, Mr. Elmers, R. C. Holmes and others. The fol-lowinggentlemen were elected directors for the ensuing year: Hon. Robert F. Stockton, Edwin A. Stevens, Robert L. Stevens, John P. Stockton, John Ar. Mickle, Thos. Jones Yoikcc, R. P. Thompson, Thos. II. Whitney, John G. Rosenbeaum, Gen. M. Ward, David Potter, S. J. Bayard, and Josiah Swaim, Jr. The ultimate construction of this new road is now certain, and will alford a speedy and sure transit for visitors to Cape Island. The Stockholders and Directors arc satisfied that it will pay, and one Director subscribed 1,000 shares or .$200,000. The amount of subscription already received is $150,-000, more than half the estimated cost of the road. The meeting adjourned in good spirits to meet on Tuesday of next week, at the same place. The road will be completed in about one yenr from this lime, so as to be ready for the next bathing season. Ax Ill-Fatko Railroad Car. The histo ry of one of the passenger cars which was wrecked at Norwalk. and so many of its inmates killed, is indeed curious. It was built about a year since, and used for the first time to convey Governor Seymour and suite from Hartford to New Haven, on the occasion of his inauguration as Governor of Connecticut.. On the day following it was sent back locked and empty, attached to one of the regular trains. From some cause, never yet explained, it llcwclf the track, went down a steep embankment, and was badly shattered. It was subsequently repaired, and in September or October last, formed' a part of the express train from this city, which was so badly wrecked at Windsor Locks, Conn. On this occasion it was the last car, and went off the bridge into the water, and sunk. Several of The Isthmus is reported healthy. The U.

A;i:. -The splendid clipper ships built in this country have no equals in i the world; and. since ihe recent e.vtraor H. nary passive of the clipper Sovereign of the Sas, which made the run from Honolulu to New York in eiohty-lwo days ; and those of the Comet and I -dying Dutchman in eiyhty-ihree and a half and eighty-five days, there had be'ii iiite an excitement, and a good deal ol discussion, among commercial men relative to the merits of sharp vessels. At a recent gathering of merchants on one of these vessels, bts were made to the etfec! that the Comet will Ix-at tins queen of Clippers from New York to San Francisso ; that the Young America wiil heat the Queen of Clippers ; that the Comet will beat the Voting America ; and that the Flying Cloud will beat ihe Queen of Clippers. There is, however, a wager of more importance on the tapis. A merchant whose name is not given, offers to stake !?50,0:i0or 100,000, that the Sovereign of the Seas, under tte command of Captain Wilson, a IJaltimorean, now master of the ship Andalusia, will outsail any vessel in the world. The trial to bff made from New York to San Francisco, and the vessels to go in ballast or otherwise, as may be desired, and to sail within thirty days of each other or together. So confident is this person of the fleetness of the Sovereign of the Seas, that he throws down the gauntlet to the shipping merchants of the United States and Europe. The Sovereign of the Seas is a Boston ship, built by Con aid McKay. 7 i re I . It lh A i tru r I I . Th-lltli . . mni'tt v. b.r.h e t'i'l ! d ;. in mid tr I to t p- ' ! t;.

The Jenny Lind was on her way from Al-viso to this city, and had on board about 1;"0 passengers. She was passed at 12 o'clock precisely, off Pulgas Ranche, by the steamer Express, going the other way. At 10 minutes past 12, the boat being then about four miles f rom the west shore of the bay, a violent tremor was felt throughout the boat, like the concussion produced by the liring of a cannon, and in a second jafier a tremenduous report was heard, and the whole vessel enveloped in a dense cloud of scalding steam. The plate on the after-head of the boiler had been blown out, and the steam and boiling water gushed with fearful violence. The bulkhead, seperatingthe boiler from the cabin, which was aft, was shivered into a thousand fragments by the force of the shock. The cabin was a closely confined room, 15 by 9 feet, with small windows looking out upon a sort of gangway that intervened between it and the railways. It was just about dinner time ; the table was spread, and a few minutes before the ladies and children, and gentleman in charge of ladies, had been introduced into the cabin, so that they might not be incommoded by the rush lo the dinner table when the bell should ring, and were about seating themselves when the explosion took place, and a dnse volume of steam rushed into the cabin. All in the room were stricken as if wilted by heat. They were scalded frightfully externally, and all inhaled the fearful steam. Not ono escaped. All were, either killed instantly or have since died. Many of them had their clothes torn from them and tbe skin entirely burned off their faces and bodies. The sight presented was horribPe beyond description, not simply the scalded, but all were more or Jess mangled by the fragments of the boiler and bulkhead, and streams of blood flowed from the mutilated bodies. Some few of the gentleman managed lo grope their way-out of the cabin, crying pileously to those above to save their wives and children. When some of the passengers who were unhurt, rushed below, a sight presented itself which staggered them, and some become faint." They found the dead and dying lying in a confused mass upon the floor, covered with fragments of chairs, tables, furniture and timber ; and? horrible to relate, were writhing in the scalding water six inches deep on the floor. Poor little children were cryug piteonsly foci their mothers who could hear, but blinded, could not see. Mothers shrieking in agony and calling upon some one to save their children. The picture, even in our recollection, is heart-rending such was the scene in the cabin. Th6fe of the passengers standing on the upper deck were nearly all saved, a few only were scalded, and those not dangerously. Those about mid-ship, right over the boUer,. were uninjured. Hut the most terrible destruction was on oie after part of the upper deck j ust over the cabin . Here a large number of passengers were con-rreated. After the steam had done its work of destruction in the cabin, it burst up the companion way, and in-an instant swept those in its paih to. the deck, like grain before the 'sickle. Not a. man around stood Fifty lay bv the son. as he stole it and buried it. IL stoutly denies stealing, the two pound weight from Mrs. Malony ; the weight shown to him by Mr. Byrnes belonged to Mr. Maguire, his sou having taken it froai the cellar for the purpose of killing his cousin Ragan. Th son told the father what he intended to d. with ir.'and the latter took it away from hiai and threw it into the lot, where it was finally discovered by Mr. Byrnes. He charges the New York robberies o-i his son, for wdiich he, the father, greatly suffered. On being questioned about the murder of Joseph Rink, he admitted that he told the Grand Jury he was there, and left the umbrella in the store of that unfortunate man. He now admits that he told a lie. He thought it was the same Grand Jury that had found true bills against him on ihe charge of ih murder of Mrs. Lynch and Mrs. Shaw, an I as they found those bills or lies, they might as wall find another one. He says that aJ the-time of the murder of Rink he was sick at the house of Mr. liagan and had been so-for four 'days. This the Ragan" family well knew. He further says that the Ragan family had no umbrella, for a young lady customer asked to borrow one about a week before Chistmas, and Mrs. Ragon replied that she had noiie. He says that the umbrellaa story was first circulated in consequence of a transactiou which took place between him and Mrs. Ragan, in New York, in the year IS 15, the particulars of which he detailed to us, and he says he will make them known on the scaffold. This story he says was made by them to get him out of the way. Indian Fight. The St. Paul Pioneer, of the 28th, says. About two weeks since a party of Chippewas killed a Sioux Indian near Six's Village. Brow's band, in retalia tion, formed a war party, and followed the Siox down. About 10 o'clock this morning. a number of the Chippewas who were prow ling about town m quest of Sioux, saw our fiiendJimand his two sisters enter Forbes store, took their stand in front of the store, and fired in through the open door, badly wounding one of the women. Old. Xan immediately gave chase, but urJoriunately only two barrels of his re-utver went off, and they without effect. A more da-ring-feat wa never perpetrated by jy people than this aitack of the Chippewas, in the city of St. Paul, in the most business- pHrt of the town, and in broad daylight. We understand Gov. Ramsey immediately ordered out a company of IT. S. Dragoons lo go in persuit of the ofleuders, that they may at once be- brought to justice ;. ihe Dragoons bi4i a linle tardy in iheir move-uieulcs oJ)ouX sixty of our citizen, uud. r cosuiuaiiil of Jjt-ut. Simpson, sla-i-zd after ihe Indians; and as ihey bad not returned at ihe hour of going to .press, wt: are unable tx ive the result. A man named Jacobs Iwts Ikvmi convict -ed at New London, Cotyi... for placing ob structions on the jaiis-of the WiJlimantic ERailroad, and sentenced to eight vcais imprisonment in the State Prison. A well merited puabLuiiut fjr such malice.
