FRIGHTFUL RAILWAY ACCIDBIn.-Shortly before seven o'clock on Thursday morning, three persons were, killed at the Brighton station of the London and BRIG Railway. It appears that the engine which was to bring up THE 7 o'clock train to London, had just EMERGED from the shed to be attached to the train, am 1 WHEN the persons. the driver, stoker, and «NF,N« boiler blew up with a terrible repor P AWAY of the steam and smoke was found t at the three servants of the company had been killed, an bo,lie, frightfully mangled. '1 he engine-driver had hi* head completely blown ofl from the neck, and it was found some sixty yards from the engine; while the body of the IItoker was found dismembeied of both arms and the head smashed into a shapeless mass; the engine-filter had both legs blown (Iff and his body dreadfully shuttered. The lemains of the unfortunate n en weie gathered up, and the foice of the explosion may be imagined, from the fact of portions of the bodies HAVING been picked up at the corner of Surrey-street some 300 yards from the station. A piece of the engine, a heavy iion mass was driven through the roof of the station and fell 200 yards from it. A MAN nLCAPiTATED AT LEEDS.-On Friday morn- irig a shocking and fatal accident occurred at the Kir stall-forge iron works, near Leeds. A workman, name WILLIAM Merritt, aged 28, wasemployed in a room where a revolving shaft, moved by steam power, is fixed, an( at the top of this shaft is a circular piece of thin metal usfd for some purpose. The shaft is fixed in a corner If the. room and behind it is kept a stock of iron rehts "SED in making engine boilers. It is supposed that VHILE Meriitt was taking something out of this corner bis clothes CAUGHT the revolving shaft, and whirlerl him round it, and ifso it would be with most fearful velocity. HOWEVER this may be, he was soon after the accident F"und in the room without head and minus one arm, 'HE head being in one part and the trunk of the body in another pait of the room. The poor fellow was most I'fobably drawn up the shsft, and his neck coming in CONTACT with the piece of circular metal before mentioned, it Would be severed from his body instantaneously. MONSTER TRAIN.-Oieof the new express engines, r"C""1 I T'CENTLY constructed for the London and North-Wesiern ailway, brought an experimental train consisting of not ll",s than 34 carriages, loaded to 5 tons each, from Bir. M'NRBAM to London in three hours. Thisisconsidered »o be the most extraordinary performance ever accom- plished by a single locomotive engine, and has confirmed the expectations formed of the nieritsof the arrangements 'I'CERIUY patented by Mr. M'Connell. In many parts of E j urney the speed had lo be much diminished in con- s' QNENCE of THE bad state of the road, and there is no OUBT, when those defects are remedied, the two hours' TR'T>, with a train of 15 carriages, 'will be carried into EFFECT.
