Melancholy accident.

--As the steamtug Robert Habersham was returning from Fort Pulaski yesterday afternoon, with several officers and others on board, while passing Fort Jackson some persons were about to fire a salute from a small iron swivel, when the piece exploded, seriously if not mortally wounding Col. Miller Greeve, of Milledgeville, and Lieut. Nelson, of the Georgia Army. Mr. L. D. Perkins also received a wound in the thigh, but was, we believe, not seriously injured.--Savannah News, 7th.
