Serious Accident  {Blue Ridge RR}
   We regret to learn that a serious accident occurred at the Railroad trestle over Six-and-Twenty creek, between Pendleton and Anderson on Saturday last. In removing the trestle, for the purpose of putting up a bridge over that stream, the trestle giving way, fell and knocked two of the workmen off the trestle, who fell to the ground, a distance of forty and fifty-six feet respectively. They were dangerously injured. Other persons had a narrow escape.
