ISptciol to tKi Ctmritir-JournoLy WCHC8Txa, Aug. 17.

One of the' most terrible wrecks took place-here this morning ever known in these parte. At 7' o'clock the West-bound train on tbi Chess peake aud Ohio railroad collided with freight train on the Kentocky Central, doing Immense damage both to human life ani property. The freight depot is located in tbe fork made by tbe crossing of the above-named roads, making it impossible for the' engineers of the different roads to aee tbe coming trains on either of the other roads, and as tbe 7-o'clock train on tbe Chesapeake and Ohio road was pulling into this station a freight train was backing on the Kentucky Central, and, to make it doubly dangerous, tbe rear car of tbe train on the Kentucky Central was LOADED WITH BLA8TIXO fOWDCB bound for Point Lick, on the Kentucky Central, where the work fat going on on tbe Kentocky Central extension. The engine on the Chesapeake and Ohio struck this car broadtdded, bursting it in twain and tbe fire from the friction ignited tbe powder, causing it to explode. Tbe explosion haJ tbe effect of an earthquake on the town, causing dishes on tables ia the remotest parte to rattle and houses to shake.

It threw powder cans a hundred feet into the air, making the air dense with all kinds of missiles. THB KILLED ARK: CHARLES McMICHAEL, conductor on tbe Chesapeake and Ohio train. He was thrown a distance of forty yards, sustaining injuries from which be died at 11 o'clock. RANDOLPH MARTIN, conductor oath construction train. He was thrown over the depot a distance of sixty yards, and landed in tbe farthest part of tbe yard.

He lived about two hours. Tbey were the most heart-rending objects ever beheld by mortal eyes. Ale Michael's eyes being partly out and both being; charred beyond recognition. UcMichael died at 11 o'clock, and his remains were taken to Lexington, his home. Martin will.

be buried here. THE WOUXDKD ARB: FRANK HOCKERSMITH, of Frank- fort, a carpenter, terribly burned. Bis re covery is doubtful. CHARLES JOHNSTON, of Dublin. 1ml a carpenter for Hamilton on the new depot here.

Ho was burned from bead to foot. but his burns being mainly oxternal, It is thought that bo will recover, although ae is suffering terribly to-night. WM. BAKER and HENRY JONESvf color, both waiters in Hawk's eating- house, seriously burned, but it is thought that tbey will both recover! Toe wreck utterly demolished four freight cars, throwing pieces of them hundreds ef yards. Tbe west end of tbe new depot was completely blown away, aad the bricks from it crushed into dust.

Hawk Co. 's eating-hooas was considerably damaged, but fortunately it did not catch on fire. A number of persons, seeing tbe collision in time to take precaution, ran into the cellar before tbe explosion took place. This house is situated only about forty yards from the crossing. Several parties were in and about the freight depot, about the same distance Off, but none of them were hurt.

M'MICHAXL WAS rOCKD standing op after the wreck and tearing off his clothos, which were on flro, having sao caodod to getting rid of all, except a etaall remnant about his waist. His watch was found to-day. He was the most popular conductor on the Chesapeake and Ohio road and bad a host of friends all along the rout. He leaves a wife and one child, and Martin was aleo a married maa and lived, at this place. TBE DISASTER rtnx fakticclaks or the ooixmot, iow rr RArrxirxD aud tu damaos rr EUD.
