EXPLOSION OF A LOCOMOTIVE. – The locomotive “Warrenton,”
formerly employed on the Orange and Alexandria railroad, exploded at
Gordonsville, on Tuesday evening, and injured the fireman, a white man, so
seriously, that little hope is entertained of his recovery. The Conductor of the
train was also injured.
