SAD ACCIDENT - The Gold Hill (N.T.) 'News' of August 13th says: Samuel LANGTON, well known in connection with Langton's Express Company, met with a terrible accident last night near Silver City. In endeavoring to pass with his sulky ox team heavily loaded with lumber, he was caught against the bank, his sulky crushed and himself thrown beneath the wheels of the wagon. His right leg was crushed so terribly that amputation was necessary and the operation was performed by Dr. TJADER, of Carson. LANGTON lies at the Golden Gate in great suffering.
