A Smgular and Fatal Accident.-On Sunday last a woman of the name of Gregory, living at West Appledore, Devon, was playing with her child 10 months old, and daEcing it on the table, holding it rather loosely, and it appears to have been standing rather near the edge, when the child laughingly bounded backwards, and fell over the table to the floor, the little creature pitching on its head, and being killed on the spot. A project for a railway ferry boat from and to Dover and Calais will be shortly before the public. The ferry boat is to be 3,000 feet in length, 100 feet beam, and draw but five feet of water.. In the centre of the deck will be a covered iron tunnel, into which the carriages will steam, with goods and passengers, to be conveyed across the Channel with considerable rapidity. The speed is to be 40 miles per hour. She will have rudders at both ends, and will never require to turn. Her build is to be that of a series of unsinkable tubes.
