A Sad Casualty and loss of life.

--On Saturday last, Edward Williamson, employed in the box-making and planing establishment of Mr. Mitchell, at Petersburg, Va., met with a fatal accident while attending to his duties. A part of his clothing was caught in the machinery, which carried him around with great velocity nearly a hundred times before he could be extricated from his perilous situation. His head and body were much mangled, and he lingered in great agony until Tuesday night, when death relieved him of his sufferings.
