Railroad Collision
    The Hickman Courier, of the 12th, says:
   "We learn that an unfortunate collision occurred on the Mobile & Ohio Railroad last evening, by which two men were killed and several badly wounded. Neither the conductor or engineer have made their appearance since the occurrence, and it is supposed they did the deed on purpose, to prevent a movement of troops from Columbus." No information of an occurrence of the kind has come to our knowledge from any other source.
