Fatal Railroad Accidents. --The Charlotte (N. C.) Bulletin, of the 28th, publishes the following: On Saturday night, the Express train on the N. C. Railroad ran over the body of a man named John Corbett, killing him instantly. The accident occurred about midway between High Point and Thomasville.--It is supposed he was intoxicated at the time. A negro boy, the property of Mr. John Moore, was run over on Sunday night last, by the North Carolina train, leaving Charlotte, about one mile from town and instantly killed. The occurrence was purely accidental.
Sad accident. --Yesterday afternoon, the little son of Mr. James P. Williams, of this city, aged five years, met with a shocking death. While playing with a little negro, in the kitchen, they obtained possession of a musket, which had been placed there to avoid accident, and by some means one or the other of them produced its discharge. The ball entered the right side, coming out through the back, causing death in about an hour. This melancholy event has not only spread sorrow over the hearts of the immediate family of the little one transferred, but an universal sympathy felt for the parents in this community.--Portsmouth Trans, 28th.
