\. terrible accident occurred on the
Muscogee railroad, near Columbus, Ga.
A freight train ran - off the track and
5,000 podnds of powder exploded with
terrible effect. Five of the seven cars
attached to the engidle were knocked to
pieces: The clay beneath the cars was
plowed to the depth of from four to' five ,
feet. Henry Rabston, and his negro
boy, were killed. The former was
blown fifty feet and horribTy mangled..
Two cars of molasses and tobacco wero
blown promiscuously over the woods.
The explosion was caused by the con.
cussion of several thousand pounds of tor
pedo fuses, which exploded from the
jolting when the cars ran off. The noise
was heard for the distance of fifty miles.
Several persons were wounded.

thirds of which are negroes. The Yau
