--Julius Sadler, a private in Col. D. H. Hill's 1st Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers, a native of Charlotte, N. C., fell from the cars of the Richmond and York River Railroad on Friday night last, while his regiment was being conveyed to Yorktown, when nine miles from this city, and had his head mashed off, falling directly under the wheels. The absence of the unfortunate man was not noticed at the time, nor was anybody aware of the casualty till the return of the train on Saturday, when the body was discovered and brought to this city and prepared for interment or transmission home, by Mr. Belvin. Accidents of the kind, serious as they are, may reasonably be looked for, but that fact should incite not only soldiers, but railroad employees, to be more guarded in making the hurried journeys the exigencies of the times demands at their hands.
