Shocking accident. --About one o'clock Saturday evening an accident occurred on Broad street, between 6th and 7th streets, by which a boy named Joseph Rowe was instantly killed. The boy attempted to jump on a train of cars which were in motion for the purpose of getting a ride, when he fell on the track, the cars passing over his head and severing it from the body at the mouth. He died instantly, and, with the consent of Mr. Thomas Jones, formerly of Fredericksburg, with whom he was living, was buried at the expense of the Fredericksburg Railroad Company. The deceased was the son of a poor widow of Fredericksburg, and was living here with Mr. Jones, who had adopted him. He was about fifteen years of age.
