Just as we go to press Mr. Will Taylor, a train hand on the state road, was caught between the bumpers of two freight cars and mangled to such an extent that there is no hope entertained for his life.  He was from North Carolina and had been running but two months.

The Death of Young Taylor.

As briefly mentioned in these columns last week Mr. WILL TAYLOR, a young railroad employee, was caught between two cars at the depot in this place and crushed so badly that he died the following night in the greatest agony and most intense suffering.  We erroneously stated that the young man was from North Carolina.  He was a native of South Carolina, having been raised in Anderson, where he was highly connected. Mr. John T. Owen, of this place, knew his family well and bestowed every attention he could upon the unfortunate man.  His sister arrived Thursday afternoon and carried his remains to South Carolina that night.
