Horrible Catastrophe.

--A dreadful accident occurred at Marion, in Smyth county, Va, Tuesday night. A man named Brown, his son, and son-in-law, named Yost, while inebriated, visited a mill near the town of Marion. By some means they approached the water-wheal, when all three of them fell over upon it while in motion. The old man Brown and Yost were killed instantaneously, their bodies being horribly mutilated and mashed to pieces. Young Brown was so badly injured as to be placed beyond any hope of recovery.
