RAILROAD ACCIDENT. -- We learn by telegraph, that an accident or something worse occurred on the Michigan Central Railroad at Niles yesterday, by which four persons were instantly killed -- two were not expected to live, and some ten or twelve dangerously injured. As near as we can learn a freight train from the east ran into an emigrant train, which had stopped at Niles. The Engineer and Fireman of the freight train have been arrested and are in jail in Berrien county. It is hoped that they may have justice done them. -- Laporte Whig, May 12.
