SHOCKING ACCIDENT.—TWO MEN KILLED. A shocking accident has occurred at the Vochrhiw coal pits, situated about three miles from Dowlais. About eight o'clock on Monday morning, two men were ascending the pit in the usual way. All went well until the carriage had reached to within 250 yards of the pit mouth, when the rope suddenly broke, and the tw6 men were precipi- tated to the bottom of the shaft. The poor fellows were literally knocked to atoms. The pieces were picked up and deposited in two sacks. The names of the two men were William Long, aged 49, and William Dunstone, aged 19. It is a singular circumstance that Long, who had been working all night, left off at six o'clock, at which hour he ascended the pit. He went home and had break- fast, and he then recollected that he had left one of his mandrils in the pit. The poor fellow returned and went down the pit again, and, having secured his mandril, he joined Dunstone in the carriage which was to ascend at eight o'clock, and which proved so fatally disastrous for I himself and his companion.
