A fatal accident occurred in the Manhattan Co.'s marble mill on Friday morning, occasioned by the burning of the boiler of the mill, by which a piece of marble, weighing nearly a ton, was moved, crushing to death as it fell the engineer, named, Lyman Kellogg. The boiler divided itself into three pieces, one of which narrowly escaped crashing into a house near by. The Herald says that the boiler was old and had been condemned, and this is the second time it has burst. Surely if such is the fact the proprietors of the mill should be held strictly responsible for this sad accident. Mr. Kellogg leaves a wife and two children to mourn his loss. It will be some time before the front of the mill, which was torn to pieces, will be rebuilt.
