Middlesex. -- Chester Newton -- a man employed at the saw-mill in this village -- was caught and thrown by a slab from a log then on the carriage, against the saw, fearfully mangling his body, some parts of which have not yet been found. He lived about an hour after the accident. Mr. Newton leaves a wife and two children.
