RAILWAY COLLISION AT DONCASTER On Sunday, at noon, a serious accident occnrred at the Doncaster railway station, whereby soveral persons were very seriously injure.i. It appears that, about a quarter past twelve o'clock, two trains come in, one from York and the other from Leeds, and are made into one for London. About twentv minutes past twelve, the York portion arrived, and pulled up at the signal post nearest the platform. Here three of the carriages were detached for the purpose of being shunted into a siding and coupled with the Lincoln train, which was ready for starting as soon as the London train had departed. Whilst the re- maining portion of the York train, consisting of five or six carriages, was standing on the main line, the Leeds train came up and ran into it, not with very much force, however, for the driver had reversed his engine, and used his utmost endeavours to arrest the shock. Five or six persons were injured, but only about four severely, two of whom were removed to the Infirmary, where one is progressing, bnt the other, a sailor, remained unconscious. The signalman declares that the signal was up.
