Railroad Accident
   The freight train on the M. & W. P. Railroad {Montgomery & West Point RR}, coming down yesterday morning run off the track some seven or eight miles this side of Chehaw, killing one negro man and breaking an arm of another. It was found upon examination, that a switch at that point had been put out of its place by some fiend, which had caused the accident. The passengers on the down train last night, did not arrive at this city, until 4 o'clock this morning, having been delayed by the changing of cars in consequence of it.
