Railroad accident.

--The Charleston Courier states that an accident, involving a considerable loss of property, occurred on the Wilmington and Manchester Railroad last Monday afternoon. A train of cars from Wilmington for Augusta, principally laden with coffee, whiskey, and a general assortment of blockade goods, were passing over Green Swamp Bridge, near Sumter C. H. when, after the engine and five cars had safely crossed, the bridge gave way, and the seven remaining cars were precipitated into the swamp, a distance of fifteen feet, crushing the cars and distributing the contents in every direction. More "real coffee." has been drank in that neighborhood within a few days than for a long time previously.
