Shortly after midnight on Saturday the body of a man was found on the railway line between the station and the engine tank. Both his legs were completely severed from the body. An inquest was held to-day, when the deceased was identified as a person named Liscombe. The evidence showed that he must have obtained access to the line by the gate at the Bathurst-road crossing, which at night is left unattended and unlocked. A verdict was returned that deceased was accidentally run over by a train ; and a rider was added to the effect that at night a gateman was necessary at this crossing.

Another very lamentable case of drowning occured, in the Bremer River, yesterday afternoon. About half-past 3 o'clock the four sons of William Oldham, the well-known bootmaker, of Ellenborough street, were, with one or two other little fellows, fishing in the river in the vicinity of the railway bridge. Little James Oldham, aged nine and a half years, pulled off his boots, and, unnoticed by his elder brothers, began, as it is thought, to splash about in the shallow water at the edge of the bank. At all events, the anglers were startled by seeing the boy struggling in deep water, and it is thought that he got out of his depth when attempting to reach a stick that was floating up with the incoming tide. The deceased's eldest brother, who was a short distance away, at once rushed to the spot, but as he could not swim, all he could do was to hold out a piece of wood for his brother to grasp. This did not reach the little fellow or he was too flurried to catch hold of it, and his brothers were horrified by seeing him drown a few feet away from them without being able to assist him in any way. The cries of the drowning lad and the witnesses of the affair attracted Mr. C. W. Rich, of the Custom house, whose son, Douglas Rich, aged sixteen, ran to the river-bank, and, on being informed of what has transpired, immediately plunged into the river. In the meantime, one of Mr. Oldham's sons had told him of the occurence, and he lost no time in getting to the scene of the accident. With him a young fellow, named Michael Ryan, who resides opposite the old railway station, proceeded to the spot, and jumped into the water. A large number of persons allege that he found the body, and took it out on to the bank ; while others affirm that it was Douglas Rich who discovered and rescued the corpse. Be that as it may, the lad was found almost ten yards from where he was first seen in the river (between the large pillars of the bridge). A crowd of people soon collected round the place, and, under the direction of Dr. Channing Neill, various means were resorted to for some considerable time to restore respiration, but all efforts were unavailing. It was hoped by many of those present that life had not departed, for the boy could not have been more than five minutes in the river, but at length all were compelled to admit that their exertions had been futile, and the body was sorrowfully carried up the street to his bereaved father's residence, where, a few short hour's before, the lad had been enjoying himself with the rest of the family. The deceased was the fourth son of Mr. Oldham, and his funeral will leave his late home in Ellenborough-street at 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Very considerable regret was expressed in town early on Saturday morning (says the Rockhampton Bulletin of the 28th ult,) when it became known that Mr. George Gibson, one of the owners of Withersfield station and formerly manager of Gordon Downs Station, had died overnight. Mr. Gibson has been in failing health for time past; but a residence of several months in Rockhampton seemed to work a change for the better. A fortnight ago he left for his station, intending to be away only two or three days; but the Journey by rail, and thence to the head station by road, proved too much for him and on his arrival there he felt very much exhausted. On Friday morning, however, he started for Rockhampton; but on the way down, and when near his journey's end, he became suddenly worse, and at one stage unconscious. The train reached town at half-past nine o'clock, in the, evening, and about half an hour later?at the Railway Hotel?he breathed his last. Mr. Gibson was an old resident of this part of the country, and had a large circle of friends, by whom his death his death will be very regretted. He was a stepson of Mr. F.N. Beddek, once Clerk of Petty Session at Rockhmapton, and brother of Mrs. A. F. Wood, of this town. He was was also related to Mr. Johnstone, Police Magisstrate. [Mr Gibson was related to Mrs. D.] Connor and others of Mackay. Ed. MER.

MRS. RICHARD SOLWAY.
We regret io have to record the death of Mrs. Solway, the wife of Mr. Solway, of Nowra Hill. Mrs. Solway was ill only one week, and died on Wednesday last of pneumonia. She was a very old resident of the district, as also is her husband, and was well known and much esteemed by neighbours for her kind and benevolent disposition. She was a most affectionate mother, and was strongly attached to her family, several of whom are grown up and occupy respectable positions in society. In all the deceased had led an exemplary life. She was a consistent member of the Roman Catholic Church, and the large cortege that followed the remains to the place of interment at the Roman Catholic cemetery on Thursday was sufficient evidence of the esteem in which the deceased was held by a large circle of friends and acquaintance. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Solway and family in their bereavement.

A NASTY ACCIDENT.
A PAINFUL accident befel Mr. W. H. Shard, a farmer of Anthony, yesterday afternoon. He had been on the top of a hayrick, and, having no other means of getting down, went to slide off, forgetting for the moment that a hay-fork was standing by the side of the stack with the prongs in the ground. He came down heavily on the handle of the fork, which inflicted a penetrating wound in the lower part of the body. The injured man was brought to Ipswich by last night's train, and conveyed to the Hospital, where he is at present under treatment.

DEATH OF MR. W. H. SHARD.
IN our last issue was recorded a serious accident to Mr. William Henry Shard, a farmer, of Anthony, who came down very heavily on the handle of a hay-fork while descending from a rick last Monday afternoon. He was admitted into the Hospital the same evening, and on Tuesday evening, shortly before 6 o'clock, he died. We understand that the handle of the fork penetrated his abdomen to an extent of about 8in., causing a laceration of the intestines. Mr. Shard progressed as well as it was possible under such serious conditions until about 5 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, when symptoms of failure of the heart made their appearance. Dr. Thornton, who was present at the time, did all that could be done under the circumstances, and remained with him until he died. The occurrence is the more regrettable in that the deceased leaves a widow and eleven children, most of them of tender age. Mr. Henry Shard, father of the deceased, is a farmer at Goolman.

CRACK - SOLWAY.
A very interesting, though quiet, wedding (writes a correspondent) took place on Wednesday last at the residence of Mr. John Clish, State School, Plainland, when Mr. Alfred Crack, of Laidley, and Miss Sarah M. Solway, of Kingswood Farm, Mutdapilly, were united in the bonds of holy matrimony, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. A. Taylor, of the Primitive Methodist Church, Laidley. Mr. Clish gave away the bride, and Mr. Walter Solway (brother of the bride) acted in the capacity of best man, the bridesmaids being Misses Daisy and Dot Solway (sisters of the bride). For the occasion Mr. Clish's best room had been most tastefully arranged and decorated with many large and small handsome bouquets of most beautiful flowers culled from the schoolgarden. The bride looked attractive in a costume of handsome cream brocaded satin, plain skirt, bodice with gathered chiffon yoke, trimmed with frills of same, edged with bebe ribbon ; sprays of orange blossom, and sash of chiffon, finished at the waist with pretty carbon buckles. A beautifully embroidered veil and pretty coronet of orange blossoms completed this becoming costume. She also carried a magnificent bridal bouquet, prepared by Mr. Clish from white flowers gathered from the school garden. The bridesmaids were attired in pretty little frocks of white muslin trimmed with tucks, insertion, and lace, white satin ribbon sashes, leghorn hats, trimmed with scarves of silk, gracefully caught up with daisies. They also wore beautiful gold brooohes, which had been presented to them by the bridegroom. Among the ladies who were present at the ceremony were Mrs. Clish, sister of the bride, who wore a dainty white muslin gown overslip of eau-de-nil, bodice tucked and trimmed with pretty insertion, collar and belt in contrasting shades of green silk, stylish toque of green and black straw trimmed with lace and ribbon and soft shade of pink roses ; Mrs. Cooper, navy blue costume trimmed with white silk, black and white bonnet trimmed with lilies of the valley ; Mrs. Crack (mother of the bridegroom), black cashmere trimmed with black satin, bonnet to match ; Mrs. James Crack, cream liberty silk, with becoming white velvet hat trimmed with white ostrich plumes ; Mrs. Taylor, black costume ; and little Miss Nelly Cooper, in a pretty frock of pale green nun's veiling. After the ceremony the company repaired to the dining-room, where a most sumptuous repast had been spread, which reflected the greatest credit on Mrs. Clish, who, with the assistance of Mrs. Cooper, was responsible for the production and laying out of all the good things with which the table was laden. Judging by the appreciative way in which the various appetising articles were sampled, the cooks must have been highly gratified. When the attack on the edibles had considerably eased off (and that took a considerable time), Mr. Clish, in a neat and humorous speech, proposed the health of the bride and bridegroom, which the company drank most heartily. The bridegroom suitably responded. Mr. Taylor proposed " The Bridesmaids ;" and Mr. Charles Crack " The Parents of the Bride and Bridegroom." " The Host and Hostess" was proposed by Mr. Taylor, and Mr. Clish replied, after which the company arose to make room for another relay of guests, who must have been glad to take their places. About 3.30 p.m. the happy couple left en route for Brisbane and Southport, being driven by Mr. James Crack to the Laidley Railway Station, and accompanied by the bridesmaids as far as Laidley. Two buggy-loads of the bride's and bridegroom's relatives and intimate friends also went to Ladley to bid Mr. and Mrs. Crack " bon voyage." The bride's travelling dress was of fawn cashmere, tucked bodice, yoke of light green silk, also tucked, and edged with green velvet ribbon and guipure insertion. She also wore a very pretty hat of white straw, trimmed with tulle glace ribbon and ostrich tips, gold ornaments, and bandeau.
On arrival at the Laidley Railway Station, it was found that a large company of the bridegroom's companions and acquaintances had there assembled, determined to send him off in their own way. Showers of rice were much in evidence, and the loud report of a fog-signal as the train moved away announced that the happy pair had fairly started on their honeymoon trip.
Among the presents to the bride and bridegroom were the following : - Household requisites, by Mrs. John Solway (mother of the bride) ; handsome lamp, by Mrs. Crack (bridegroom's mother) ; wardrobe, Mr. and Mrs. Clish ; cheque, Messrs. Walter and William Solway (brothers of the bride) ; cruet, Mrs. Charles Crack ; album, Mrs. James Crack ; silver salt-cellar and jam-dish, Mrs. Cooper and Mr. William Gooderham. The dresses and hats of the bride, bridesmaids, and the bride's sister (Mrs. Clish) were designed and executed at the firm of Messrs. Cribb and Foots, and reflected the greatest credit on Miss Brissenden in respect of the dresses and on Miss Ford in regard to the millinery. The wedding-cake was the production of Mrs. Clish, and, though not got up externally so elaborately as the regulation wedding-cake from the confectioner, was, internally, the perfection of excellence.

We regret to have to record the death of Mr. McCrohon, senr., which occurred at Tingha on Tuesday night last. The deceased gentleman was down town the same night and returned home apparently in the best of health. His relatives, however, on entering his room next morning, found him dead. Mr. McCrohon was a very old resident of Tingha, where his family all reside. We extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones.
