Tha rails had been raised up and six large atones plated underneath. A frightful oollisiou earned, and the whole train was thrown from the traek. The locomotive was thrown into a ditch, and the baggage car rolled over and was broken la pieces, and six persocs in the oar were badly but not fatally bruised. The forepart of a passenger car was much brcken, and tha trucks of two others were torn off: but tha passenger? escaped serious injury, and arrived here this morning. It is supposed that this attempt to destroy tbe passenger train was made by robbers, who to[ed in the confusion to reb Adams A Co , af * large auaoun* of specie in their charge for different banks in this city. An engine wait ing at Worcester was tampered with, in order to prevent its being tent ia aid of the disabled train. The specie was much scattered, but was all safely recovered.
