We learn from the Augusta
'Chronicle and Sentinel, of yesterd'y
the 2'4th instant, that an accideit o'
-eurred on the tabove road near that
city on Wednesday, caused by the
breaking of tho'front axi of the ex
.press car, which was nsext to the en.
gino,thus precipitating tlie car pa-rtly
-from the track-, aid' turning it over
on one of its sides. The baggage cnr
and smoking car ran into tle wreck
and were thrown from the track also.
Fortunat-ely thie accident occurred inl
a cut., atd the cirs were 'Prevented
'froin turm ing completely o er by fall
ing against the brak. As it was,
the thieb coaeb(es were jitnmed to
gother in one inass. Th plat-fors1
of the b.tgsgage aind sits cars wt ra
-inasihed lihost into Fpliinters, and
-prosented a scene of app'arently inex
-t ricaile conu usion. The lad ies' conehi
vhieh was in the rear., reniia'i sed on
ti track, though its platforin and
roof next to the nsoking car wore
torn to pieces by the shoelk against
-the overturned train inl front.
