Explosion of a Locomotive----No Person Hurt. At about half past one o'clexik Sunday afternoon, our citizens wore startled by the occurrence of a, loud explosion, which shook the windows and rattled the doors through- out the village. An alarmed crowd soon filled tho streets, and rushcel down to tho old round-houoe where tho explosion had taken pi ice. It was hero ascertained that the boiler of locomotive No. 294 had ex- ploded. She had been started out, prepar- ettory to taking out a freight train, and stood just outside of the round-house. Tte engineer, Mr. Clark Caskoy, was at homo then, taking his dinner. Tho fireman, Mr. George Decker, had started the engine out, and hud stepped off it only about two minutes before tho oxplosioi i, to get a can of oil from the tank-house. Being Su nday, and about dinner-time, there were fewer of the railroad employees than usual in and around the engine-house. To these circum- stances it is owing that, most fortunately f.nd miraculously there was no loss of life occasioned by tho explosior. The wholo back paH of tho boiler, from the fvirnaco door to the sand box, together with the cab, waa blown off. A pieco weighing several lundrod pountls wag blown two hundred :eet, coming down ia tho n ieldlo of Eail- road-avo. Small pice.es worn bbwn six or eight hundred yards. Thodaora ami win- dows of tho remnd-house were shattered, and a portion of the was carried away.
