Novel railway carriage.

--A novelty in the shape of a passenger car and engine combined, is now nearly completed at the shops of the Richmond and Fredericksburg Railroad Company in this city. It is designed for the private use of the officers of the company, who have frequent occasion to pass over the road on business. The car is handsomely finished, and contains accommodations for two or three passengers. In the forward part is a small engine, of sufficient power to propel the vehicle. This ingenious contrivance, which is about half the size of a street railway car, has been christened "Lindsay Walker," in honor of the gallant captain of that name, now serving on the Potomac.
