RHYMNEY. A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS.—A terrific explosion took place in the works on Saturday morning last, which excited great apprehension amongst the people, many feared that a boiler bad burst, but it was found that the regulator of the steam blast bad been shattered to pieces, and huge fragments of thick cast-iron plates were flying about in all directions. It is conjectured that a current of foul air from the furnaces, while the engine was still, was driven along the tube, and, being ignited, destroyed the regulator and part of the tube itself. Seven fowls were killed but no human being was hurt. An accident of a similar kind took place at Tredegar a year ago, which was attributed^ to a similar cause.—The past week has been frightful in accidents to life and limb. On Monday morning Timothy Hurley, while cleaning the grate of one of the boilers to the guide mill engine, was struck to the earth by a tram plate which fell on his head from the top of the boiler. His skull is badly fractured, and at first he was not expected to recover. On Tuesday, a collier, David Harry, was brought out of the Duffryn pit with a broken thigh and almost before the doctor was released from this case he was called on to attend Edward Sweeny, who by a fall from the crane, used in the works, had his collar bone broken, and received severe injury otherwise.
