Melancholy Accident Mrs Rowe, the wife of Mr Rowe, auctioneer, 73 Coleman-st, was taking an afternoon airing at four o'clock, on Monday, along the New-rd, in a pony phaeton, driven by a groom, when the animal became restive and unmanageable, and ultimately ran away towards Euston-sq. The carriage of Mr Christie, M.P., with the honourable gentleman in it, and an omnibus drove up in the opposite direction, when Mrs Rowe's pony ran so furiously against the former that the phaeton and pony were whirled by the concussion to the opposite side, close to the omnibus, where Mrs Rowe was flung head foremost to the ground with such violence, that, after falling upon her face, she rebounded, falling again in such a manner that her neck was dislocated. When raised up the unfortunate lady was quite dead. The groom, although thrown out, sustained but a few scratches. The pony and phaeton were scarcely injured. Deceased was 64 years of age.

Lamentable Occurence A very shocking and fatal accident occurred at Chorley, Lancashire, on Monday. Mr Henry Hordern Fazakerley, a young gentleman, 19 years of age, who had recently come into possession of Gillibrand Hall estate, and other large property, by the death of his father, was at Chorley on a visit, in company with his friend, Mr Tempest Green, son of Admiral Sir Andrew P Green, and on Monday they were invited to descend a coal mine, in which there was a good deal of foul air, to look at the works. The colliery was that of Mr Jonathon Blundell and Sons. In company with them, the underlooker of the works (Mr Billinge) and a sinker named William Taylor, descended the shaft, 208 yards deep, and they took with them a blazing tar-rope to give light. Shortly after their descent a boy at the mouth of the pit observed a rush of air up the shaft, as if an explosion had taken place, and gave an alarm. The son of Mr Billinge and others went down in search of the parties (after shouting down the shaft without getting an answer), but the air was so foul that it was some hours before they could venture to the bottom. The result was, as may be surmised, that the whole of the party, four in number, had perished, leaving no one to tell the melancholy circumstances immediately leading to the accident. The bodies of Mr Fazarkely, Mr Green, and their companions were recovered about midnight; and there is no doubt, from their scorched and disfigured state, that they had ignited the carburetted hydrogen gas so fatal in coal-mines, and fallen a sacrifice to the imprudence which had dictated the use of an unprotected light in place of a Davy lamp.

Riot (Illustrated London News carries fuller report.) At Cambden, Worcestershire. (Head office for the contractors of the formation of a line of road through the Muckleton Tunnel.) Some of those involved: Mr Marchant, who was having trouble with completion of his contract between Oxford and Worcester. Peto and Betts, contractors for the whole of the rest of the work on the line. Marchant having been told to remove his workmen to allow Peto and Betts completing the work. Peto and Betts agent was told to gather 500 men and march them to Muckleton Tunnel to occupy the site and prevent Marchant's men from pursue their work. At the Worcester end of the tunnel, Mr Cowdery with 200 men from Evesham and Wyre carrying pickaxes and shovels, met Marchant who dared them to proceed on pain of being shot. He was carrying several pistols. Mr Brunel, unable to persuade Marchant to move told Peto and Betts men to proceed and take the line. A rush was made, and several heads were broken and three men had dislocated shoulders. A Marchant man who drew his pistols was set upon and his head nearly severed from his body. Marchant and his men left for an hour and returned with three dozen policemen from the Gloucester constabulary and some privates from the Gloucester Artillery and two magistrates who read the Riot Act. Fights had again broken out and several received broken arms and legs. At 4 Mr Charles Watson, of Warwick, arrived with 200 men and the Great Western Company sent a similar number to expel Marchant. The magistrates told Marchants men to start work and Peto and Betts men to stop work. Marchant gave in and he adjourned with Mr Brunel to come to some amicable agreement. Whilst they were doing so a small number of navvies again started fighting and one had his little finger bitten off. Eventually Messrs Cubitt and Stephenson acted as arbitrators and work suspended for a fortnight.
