The accident on the South Carolina Railroad.

--The Columbia South Carolinian, of Saturday, gives the following additional particulars of the accident which occurred a the South Carolina Railroad last Friday morning.

From the accidental breaking of a chair, a the track, two of the cars of the train were thrown off and one of them turned over. Filled with passengers, it is surprising the casualties were not more and that none were killed. The injuries in some of the cases are severe, but we believe do not endanger life.-- The sufferers were brought to the city and received the immediate attention of several of our surgeons.

The following is a list of most of the cases Col. A. P. Aldrich, of Gen. Gregg's staff had a dislocation of the right shoulder join. Mr. Hopkinson, of Edisto, left arm broken; Hon. J. L. Seward, of Georgia had the point of the left elbow broken, and a cut on the forehead; Hon. A. R. Wright, of Georgia, had a cut on the face and forehand bruised Mr. L. W. Spratt was much bruised, but act seriously; Mr. W. A. Courtenay bruised slightly; Gen. M. Gregg, very slightly; as James Chambers was stunned and for soul time was much prostrated, but is doing well, Mr. Davidson, of Charlotte, N. C., had as face cut and hips bruised; Mr. R. A. Spring had a cut on his head, but was able to go of home; Mrs. J. A. Leland had a severe cut on her head; and her son, 2½ years old, had a very severe cut on the face; Mr. John Ingain received several cuts. There were some other bruited, but we think the above comprise the principal cases.
