--The Kanawha co. (Va.) Republican chronicles a number of accidents in the Sugar Mills in that vicinity.--In Roane county one surgeon has amputated twelve hands and arms crushed in these mills this season. A little boy in the upper end of Putnam county, a few days ago, bad his right arm crushed in one of these mills. It was amputated at the shoulder. Mrs. Mary Henson, wife of Mr. Jas. C. Henson, died last week, from the loss of an arm. She leaves eight children. On last Tuesday, Capt. J. Griffin Rader, of the Greenbrier co. (Va.) Cavalry, had both bones of his leg broken completely off, just below the knee, by a fall from a horse.
