There has been an "accident" on the Scottish Central Railway. A lug- gage-train came to a stand in a tunnel near Perth; notice was sent to the man on guard at the entrance; yet he allowed a mail-train to enter the tunnel on the same rails : the result was a collision. The guard of the goods- train was mueh hurt, and many passengers in the mail-train suffered. The scene in the tunnel—the terrified and wounded passengers screaming in the darkness—was frightful.
