Flat-car in river.

Current rumor has it that a new line of boats had been put on the Severn River, according to a story told by a conductor who passed the River a few days ago. It has been subsequently learned that passenger train No. 49 ran through an open switch, and, coming in contact with a string of cars, started them all on the move towards the water, the last one, a flat car, going into the river. The accident occurred about midnight and the sleeping population of Severn were not aware of their new boat until morning dawned.
