Fatal Accident! -- A Man Buried with Earth.

We learn that a man by the name of Binnet was working on the Railroad yesterday, about one mile west of this place, excavating under a frozen bank, when it caved off and buried him with an immense weight of earth.

He was dug out as soon as possible, and was yet alive, but soon died of the injury. His funeral takes place to-morrow.
