The sad accident at Wilmington. --A correspondent sends us the following correct account of the late terrible accident in Wilmington, N. C., to which allusion has already been made in our columns: Last Tuesday night about 8½ o'clock, whilst a crank car containing Capt. S. Mercer Keith, Mr. David DeCoppett, Stephen Rhapp, and two negroes, Peter and Alexander, was coming round the curve near the depot of the Wilmington and Manchester Railroad, it came in collision with a train consisting of one locomotive and six cars, which was backing out to go on the turnout just beyond the curve. The whole of the cars went over the creak car, which resulted in immediately killing Messrs. Keith, DeCoppett and Rhapp. The negro Peter died soon after, and Alexander submitted to apparition of the leg, and has since died. The bodies were mangled considerably,-- Charleston Henry.
