Blown away.

--A few days since, one of Mr. Wm. Sears Wood's employees, while tinning a house at West Point, on the line of the York River Railroad, had a large roll of the metal blown around him by the force of the wind, and thus enveloped, was hurled to the ground, (some twenty-eight feet,) sustaining a dislocation of the shoulder, besides receiving considerable bruises about the head and other parts of the body, which will disqualify him for work for some time.
