Railroad accident.

--The Columbus (Ky.) Confederate News, of the 29th ult., has the following:

‘ As the up train of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad was entering Columbus on Sunday morning, the cars met with an obstruction just, as they were passing over the between the bluff and the depot, by which one car was thrown from the track and tumbled into the ravine below. This car was turned completely over. Another car was overset, but struck upon the bank. Fortunately no eyes were lost; but several were seriously injured, among whom we have learned the names of Col. Wright, Mr. Hubbard, a merchant of this city, and a Mr. Weaver, a soldier returning from Bowling Green.
