RAILWAY ACCIDENT.—A serious mis- hap occurred to the Irish boat express which goes through Conway station for Holyhead, about midnight on Friday. At the Waen crossing, the train, which was travelling at full speed, came to a sudden standstill owing to the breaking of the vacuum brakes. An examination was made and it was found that one of the middle wheels of the rear parcel van was missing, having been snapped away from the axle. The van was detached, and after a complete examination, the passengers, who were considerably alarmed, were re- assured, and the train proceeded on its journey. The terrible noise made by the train passing through the Junction and Conway awoke several inhabitants, who fearing a disaster rushed out. It was found that the permanent way from the other side of the Junction to the Waen crossing had been considerably damaged by the trailing axle, and in places the rails had been snapped as the train rushed over the points. Traffic was seriously delayed and for some hours a single line had to be worked, with the result that the early morning trains were some hours late. During Friday afternoon however, the break- down gang had got the line clear and the line was re-opened. It was most fortunate that the accident occurred to the rear van, or a terrible calamity might have occurred. A curious fact is that the train did not do the slightest damage to the tube which crosses the river. LANTERN LECTURE.
