RAILROAD CASUALTIES. – We are required, this morning, to chronicle two fatal railroad accidents. – the one occurring near Pittsburg, in Pennsylvania, and the other at Albany. The particulars, as given by telegraph, reveal the usual horrors attendant upon such disasters, though not quite the usual destruction of life. In both cases a little care would have saved life and limb. In the one a Coroner’s jury has already recorded the stereotyped “nobody to blame,” and in the Albany case it is likely no more time will be lost than is absolutely necessary to prepare the whitewash.
