Robert Atwood of Louisville, insisted on Friday, on being surrounded by his bondsmen, and was lodged in jail. His speculations are the universal topic of conversation, and further developments confirm the report of their magnitude.

The Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad train ran off the track at Henryville, Penn., at about 10 P. M. on Friday, causing the wreck of the locomotive and baggage-car. The baggage-master, John Corling, was killed, and the engineer and one brakeman were seriously injured. The passengers escaped unhurt.

The Dental convention at session in Boston, has elected the following officers: Vice-president Dr. G. Mills, of Brooklyn; Recording Secretary, Dr. Cornelius s. Hurlburt, of Springfield; Corresponding Secretary, Dr. M. S. Deane, of Chicago; treasurer, Dr. John Allen, of New York. The next meeting will be held at Saratoga.

At a banquet given in Brighton, England, Saturday, Mr. Stanley, while responding to a toast, thought he heard expressions of incredulity from some of the guests as to his meeting Livingston. He vehemently retorted, withdrew in indignation from the table, subsequently left Brighton. It is understood that he will probably return before the close of the meeting of the British Association.

Horace Greeley left Rye Beach at 9 o'clock on Saturday morning for Hampton, and at arriving at the latter place, called at the Granite, Leavitt, Hampton, and other prominent hotels. At the Leavitt Hotel, he was the recipient of an address of welcome, to which he accorded a short response. He then took the noon train for Boston, where he arrived shortly after ? o'clock. He was driven quickly to the Parker House, where he dined, rested a short while, and left at 5 o'clock for New York via Fall River.

A tornado which swept from East Longmeadow to Wilbraham, Mass., on Saturday morning, leveled everything in its path for a distance of five miles, its course being northeasterly. Stone walls and fences were strewn in every direction. A strip from five to fifteen rods in width was cut clean through a forest of large trees, and several buildings were thrown down but no dwellings. Among the buildings unroofed were the boarding-house of the Wilbraham Academy, which institution sustained a loss of $3,500. The total loss by the storm is about $15,000.
