Railroad accident.

--On Wednesday last, as the freight train of the Central Railroad Company was passing between the University of Virginia and Charlottesville, a steer, whose net weight was about 1,400 pounds, broke through the floor of one of the cars, and was killed; the passenger car attached was thrown from the track and broken to pieces, the captain of the train, Mr. Sims, and the owner of a number of sheep from Augusta, were also injured. Had the car been constructed of the right material, the accident would not have occurred.
