FATAL ACCIDENT.- A fatal accident occurred at Clackmannan Colliery on Wednesday last, to a man named John Allan. He was at work in the Kense Pit, when a heavy stone measuring upwards of six yards in length fell upon him, crushing him so severely as to kill him on the spot. A boy named Russell, who was at work close to the place where the accident occurred, gave the alarm, and the body of the unfortunate man was taken from beneath the superincumbent weight, and removed to his late residence. Allan leaves a wife and three children, the youngest only three months old.
