One man nearly Murdered and eight men killed.

--The Strathroy (C. W.) Home Guard relates the following shocking accident which occurred near that village on Wednesday:

At a raising in Lobe, about eight miles from Strathroy, a quarrel arose between the men engaged. As they were lifting a ‘"bent"’ one man struck another on the head with an axe, nearly killing him. The other men, seeing their comrade thus knocked down, let their pikes fall, when the opposite bent swung round and fell to the ground, killing eight men, who were thus launched in a moment into eternity. We had not received full particulars up to the time of going to press.
