Railroad Accident
   We are pained to record a distressing rail road accident which occurred yesterday, on the Macon & Western Road near Barnesville. A freight train coming up and a large train of wounded from the battlefield of Wednesday ran together, and we are informed that not less than twenty were killed. Of the number of wounded we have no account.
   There is certainly a very fearful responsibility resting upon some one for this terrible and unnecessary calamity. It is bad enough to have our brave soldiers mangled by the enemy; but it is outrageous, after they are so wounded and are suffering from their wounds, that they should be crushed and ground to powder by railroad officials.
