Accident on the Savannah Railroad.

--About 2 o'clock yesterday morning, a collision occurred on the Charleston and Savannah Railroad, between two freight trains, in which, we regret to say, the popular and obliging Conductor, Mr. Bradley, had his left arm seriously injured. The collision occurred at Adams Run. Both trains were running on the same schedule towards Charleston, but the one in the rear running faster than the forward one, which showed no light in the hindmost car, was the cause of the accident. Mr. Conductor Bradley was the only person seriously injured; a few others were slightly scratched. Two of the cars were broken up and the engine, which ran into the forward train, was disabled.--Charleston Mercury, 23rd.
