A man by the name of Fossit, an employee of the Western & Atlantic Railroad, was ran over and killed by the up through freight train, just below the railroad bridge over the Etowah River, about two and a half miles from this place, on Saturday night last. – Mr. Fossit, we are told, was intoxicated, and lying on the track.  He was horribly mutilated, his body being almost crushed to atoms, and his head severed from his body by the wheels of the flying engine.
