There was a bad collision on the Bristol and Birmingham

Railway on Thurs- day last : two trains, one from Gloucester and one from Birmingham, both going at great speed, met at Camp Hill, and before the engines could be reversed they clashed together. The crash was frightful. One engine-man was seriously hurt, and thirty or forty passengers were more or less bruised; but no fatal result is apprehended. The departure of the Gloucester train before the arrival of the otfieris said to have been against orders; but an inquiry into the affair was to be instituted yesterday evening.
