WHAT FOLLOWED A SPREE.--On Nov. 25th, while John Copeland, a young farmer, was dissipating in one of our bar-rooms in the evening, his team which had left him and started down the track, was run over by the Toronto train due at Lindsay at 9:10 p. m. Both horses were instantly killed, one of their heads being completely cut off, and the tender was thrown from the track. Fragments of their flesh and of the sleigh and its contents were scattered for a considerable distance, but no damage was done excepting to the engine and the fright of the passengers. Some of the passengers walked a distance of two miles, thus saving the delay caused by the engine being through off the track. Copeland had become sobered by 3 o'clock next morning, and went to find his team.
