--On Wednesday afternoon, in consequence of the washing away of a portion of the Central Railroad track, the engine of a special train, in charge of Mr. Ragland, was forced into Sutton's mill-pond, about seventeen miles from this city.
The engineer, Mr. Ragland, was considerably bruised.
His machine is now in the pond, from which the water has been drawn.
