--Three persons were killed and about four hundred wounded more or less severely by a railroad disaster, on the 27th ult., on the line between Leicester and London. While a train of excursionists was standing at Market Harborough, it was run into from behind by a train at full speed, and a terrible scene ensued. Most of the sufferers belonged to Burton upon Trent. It is said the trains left London within five minutes of each other.
