MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT: We are sorry to learn that an accident of a fatal nature occurred on Tuesday last, to one of the servants of the Ayrshire Railway Company, named James Cuthbertson, stationed at Dreghorn, on the Irvine and Busby Branch. It appears that the contractor for the formation of this branch was taking along the line five trucks laden with stones, and letting them down an inclide without the assistance of an engine, or under the control of any of the Company's servants, and it is happened, that four of them got detached from that upon which the contractor's foreman was seated, and careered along the line at furious speed. On approaching Dreghorn, Cuthbertson observed the trucks approaching, and made an effort to open the gates, which had been shut to inclose the railway. In this he failed, and unfortunately had not presence of mind to leap aside. The trucks accordingly came upon him, and he was killed on the spot.

MELANCHOLY EVENT: A most melancholy event occurred a few days ago near Cupar-Fife. A lad named William Lawson, aged about twelve years, who was employed in herding cattle, had in frolic tied one end of his worsted cravat to a branch of to a tree and the other round his neck, when his feet appear to have slipped from under him (for the branch was not higher than his head), and he was consequently hanged. He was found by his master apparently quite dead, his shoulders leaning against the tree, and his feet on the ground. Dr McKenzie was immediately sent for from Letham, but owing to the distance (three miles) almost an hour elapsed from the time the lad was found before the doctor saw him. Both of the jugular veins were immediately opened as well as those of the arms, and artificial respiration, and other usual means preserved for the upwards of an hour, without the slightest sign of returning animation. There is not the least suspicion that this was other that a mere accident, as the boy was on an exceedingly quiet, inoffensive disposition, and was in his usual health and spirits that day. An investigation, however, will as usual be made by the Procurator-Fiscal.

FATAL ACCIDENT ON LOCH LOMOND: On Tuesday afternoon, a small boat from Luss, while on its way from Balmaha to Strathcassel Point, with three men on board, was upset, and the men thrown into the river. Two of them got on the keel of the boat, but it suddenly righted, and threw them again into the water, from which they never emerged. The accident was observed from the shore, and every exertion made to man a boat for their assistance, but it did not reach them until a quarter of an hour after the accident took place, whenit was too late. The names of the men are George McLauchlan, Donald Paton and William Millar. They were all unmarried, and belonged to Luss. The accident is supposed to have occurred from their minmanaging the sail, and from want of experience. Search was made for their bodies from Tuesday evening till Wednesday afternoon, when the whole of them were found, and conveyed to Luss for interment.
BODY FOUND: In the end of November last, Sergeant Alexander Urquhart, or Alness, in Ross-shire, disappeared somewhat mysteriously. Every inquiry and search made for him at the time proved ineffectual. Suspicion and rumours that he had come by a violent death got afloat... On Wednesday last, the body of a man was found in Strathrannoch, a lonely Highland district, twelve miles north of Garve, by a gamekeeper... from having been covered over until lately by the snow, decomposition had made comparatively little progress. The silver watch, quite dry and clear, and some silver and copper money were in the pockets, there was not the slightest mark or indication of violence... - Inverness Courier.
MAN DROWNED: Early on Monday morning last, a man named Christopher Landell was drowned between the breakwater and the pier at Granton. The deceased was a mason to trade, and in the employment of Mr Barry, the contractor for the works now going on at Leith in connection with the improvement of the harbour. At the time of the accident he was in charge of a barge loaded with stones, which was in course of being tugged from Cramond quarry to Leith by means of a steamer. On passing the furthest point of the breakwater at Granton, the barge gave a sudden lurch to the side, and almost immediately swamped. Landell was, in consequence, thrown into the water. He managed to keep himself afloat for five or six minutes, but there being no boat at hand, he sank before the slightest assistance could be rendered to him. Although several boats were engaged both Monday and Tuesday, in dragging for the body, it has not yet been found. The deceased was a native of England, married and about 30 years of age.

THE LATE MR. WILLIAM WALKER, GEORGIA: We are requested by the friends of the deceased in this neighbourhood to copy the following notice from the Augusta (Georgia) Chronicle and Sentinel:- "DIED - in this city on the 10th of April, Mr William Walker aged 56 years. The subject of this brief obituary was born in or near the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Since 1819 he was a resident of Augusta, wherein, for many years, he was busily engaged in mercantile life. A few months previous to his death, he was elected by the members of the Young Men's Library Association to fill the office of Secretary Treasurer, and Librarian of that institute, which he filled with much credit to himself, entire satisfaction to, and pleasure of, every member of the association. In manners, Mr W. was mild and pleasing, in disposition kind and affable, his walk and conversation being at all times characterised by strict integrity and honesty of purpose; one too, who, in poetic language, did indeed pursue "the even tenor of his way". To his mourning relatives and friends it will be no doubt prove a consolation to know that every thing which humanity and skill could suggest, was done for him in his hours of sickness, by the family (Gen. G.W. Evans) in whose circle ha had for many years been a member, but alas in vain - the fist of Him, who, in the words of the Hebrew bard, "walketh on the wings of the wind" had gone forth, summoning the spirit that was only lent for a season to that rest, the inheritance of the righteous beyond the grade."

DROWNING FROM INTEMPERANCE: Yesterday, about two o'clock, a man named James Naismith, a collier belonging to Shettleston, was drowned in the Clyde, a little above Rutherglen Bridge. From the information we have received, it appears that the deceased, along with his brother and some other men, had been drinking the greater part of the preceding night, and during the day they proceeded to the banks of the river, taking with them a bottle of whisky. After the drink had been consumed, one of the party threw the bottle into the water, and a wager was taken up that Naismith would not bring it out again. He immediately threw off his clothes, plunged into the Clyde, and was drowned in his attempt to reach the floating bottle. Mr Geddes soon reached the spot, and after the search of a few minutes recovered the body, which was taken to the Humane Society's House. The deceased has left a widow and child.

Mr. Mackenzie was a man esteemed by all who knew him. - Aberdeen Journal.

MAN KILLED: On Wednesday afternoon, an accident attended with fatal consequences, occurred on the Hawick branch of the North British Railway, now in course of construction. The name of the unfortunate sufferer was Robert Letham, a waggon driver, residing at Stow. It appears that, while in charge of three empty waggons, he alighted at a place called Ferniehirst, for the purpose of getting a drink, and in attempting to regain his position, his foot slipped, and he fell upon the rails before the waggons, two of which went over his body. After the waggons had passed, he got up, and ran about fifty yards, when he fell down and almost instantly expired. His father, who was at work a short distance from the spot, was amongst the first who ran to lift up the unfortunate man.
