"RYAN--The Water Supply-Mining Accidents--Virginia (Nev.) Sept 1, 1870--Fatal Mining Accident--I grieve that I have to relate another sad mining accident, which has occurred since my last letter. On Thursday evening, the 25th of August, Thomas STANTON and David RYAN were killed in the main shaft of the HALE & NORCROSS mine- killed instantly, by the cage falling to the bottom of the shaft. The breaking of a bolt was the cause of the mischief. There is no reason to accuse the managers of the mine of any want of precaution-that is, such precautions are are usually taken, but it seems that the lives of these poor miners should not be dependent on so slight a thing. There ought to be some way of stopping the cage when such an accident happens-something more between these poor fellows and a dreadful death than a single bolt. Both of the men were quite young-one thirty years of age only, the other thirty-four. Both leave wives to lament their loss, one leaves also two children, and the unhappy mother about to be confined of a third. The funerals took place on Saturday, and were very largely attended. There were some sixty carriages in the procession, and about 500 members of the Miners' Union on foot. There is something to me very sad in these funerals, and though I have witnessed many of them I never can to so with the persons who have died a natural death, surrounded by ther relatives and friends. I see walking in the procession fine, healthy looking men, patient and strong, and brave, and think how soon many of these may be even as the men they are following."
