Man Killed in Train Wreck.

TRENTON, N. J., Nov. 26.---A double wreck, causing the death of one man, occurred to-day on the Delaware River Bridge of the Pennsylvania Railroad, between this city and Morrisville, Penn. A drill engine first ran into the rear end of a freight train, demolishing the caboose and wrecking the engine. Fredrick McDowell, a train hand, was killed by being struck by a beam of the bridge. Two other men were slightly injured. Subsequently a passenger train bound east ran into the wreckage, but no damage was done other than a shaking up of the passengers.
