A Victim to his own rashness.

Aurora, Aug. 5.—This evening as the express train on the Northern Railway was crossing Yonge-street about a mile south of this place a young man named Samuel Alexander attempted to cross the track in a butcher cart in front of the train. The locomotive struck the cart, crushing it to pieces, throwing the young man out, and killing him instantly. The horse escaped without a scratch.
