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.

Plymouth a fisherman named Brat, the master of a trawling
sloop, went out in his vessel fishing, fell overboard and
was drowned. About 4 hours afterwards his son, who was

accident, was hauling up his trawl which appeared
unusually heavy. After some difficulty however the trawl
was hove onto the vessel and within it was discovered, to
the consternation and dismay of all parties on board, the
body of the mate's father.
