The Accident in Manchester.

--We have already mentioned the accidental death of a little girl in Manchester, Saturday evening, by being run over by one of the engines of the Danville Railroad Company. Her name was Childress, instead of Chilton, as we stated.--She was crossing Hull street at the time, and her death was instantaneous. A gentleman informs us that the engineer and conductor were arrested at once on the charge of running over speed, and being taken before a magistrate, were by him sent on to the County Court on the charge of involuntary manslaughter.

The verdict of the jury of inquest was to the effect that the deceased came to her death by the unlawful running of the engine.
