SHOCKING ACCIDENT AT A LEVEL CROSSING. A shocking fatality is reported to have oc- curred on the railway near Graz, in Styria. A party of seven workmen and women from the cigarette factory at Gosting had (says the Daily Aeu's correspondent) spent the night in Graz, danc- ing and drinking, At four o'clock on Wednesday morning they took a fiacre to return home. Five crowded inside, and two seated themselves with the coachman on the box. They attempted to cross the line just as the express from Trieste came along. Before the engine could be stopped the carriage had been struck, and had been pushed forward on the line for a long distance. When the train was brought to a standstill it was seen that a heap of bleeding humanity lay on the rails, with one horse torn to pieces and the other pluugiug wildly. All those who were in the carriage had been killed. The coachman was only slightly hurt but the two men who were with him are seriously injured. The line it appears was not shut off from the road, the watchman having fallen asleep.
