A RUNAWAY TRAIN.-On the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, on Friday, a luggage train consisting of 30 or 40 waggons, started from Sheffield towards Dunford. At Dunford there is a deep incline, and while the train was ascending this portion of the road, a coupling chain broke, and the waggons, becom- ing detached, ran back. The guard in charge of tho train telegraphed to Penislone, with a view to having the runaway waggons shunted on the down line. The message was received three minutes after the mail train from Manchester had passed, and the waggons went forward in the same track. The mail train reached Sheffield first, and was shunted out of the way just as the waggons rushed through the station at a very rapid rate. The wapgous continued their course unchecked until they reached the Dunnall banks, about five miles from Sheffield. Here there was an incline, and they were brought to a stand after running about 20 miles' Fortunately, no damage was done either to person or property.
