RAILWAY ACCIDENT AT BURNLEY.- At Holme Station, near Burnley, yesterday, the coupling of a goods train of about 40 loaded wagons broke on an incline. The rear portion afterwards overtook the fore part, and there was a collision. Two wagons left the metals and carried away a wooden structure forming the station buildings. The acting stationmaster, William Pim, who was in his office, was killed. Both lines were blocked and strewn with goods for several hours.
