Terrible Accident. - Ezekiel Miles, a farmer who resided about one and a half miles north of Sheffield Hollow, was frightfully mangled by a circular saw in the Chesley saw-mill on Friday last and died on Saturday. He stood behind the saw and in attempting to remove a slab was thrown on to the saw. One leg was severed and the lower part of the body was torn in a frightful manner. Mr. Miles was an industrious, honest citizen. His age was about 45 years.
