Railroad Accident
   The freight train on the M. & W. P. {Montgomery & West Point} Railroad, coming down yesterday morning, ran off the track some seven or eight miles this side of Chebaw, 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.
