Fatal shell Explosion.

--On Friday afternoon last, while some workmen were engaged in unloading shell at Chaffin's farm, one of them exploded, instantly killing a negro and wounding a white man so severely as to cause his death in a short while afterwards. The cap of the negro's skull was out off and his brain scooped entirely out by the flying fragments of the exploded missile.
