June 6.—The Boston sleeper on the Louisville and Nashville train, which left here this afternoon, was derailed and badly wrecked near English, Ky. Eight persons were seriously injured, two of whom will probably die. Mrs. Col. Hodges, of Jeffersonville, and Mrs. John Johnson, of Memphis, are thought to be fatally injured. The accident was caused by the spreading of the rails, due to the softness of the ground from the recent rains.
