Fatal Accident. - Mr. Chas. Gerke, a well-known traveller for wholesale liquor houses, was going East last Friday, and on arriving at Fremont, stopped for dinner. When the train was moving out he attempted to get on board while it was in motion, was dragged under the wheels, and received such injuries on his back and limbs that he soon after expired. His family reside in Omaha.

Terminated Fatally. - We regret to say that Wm. Haney, the young man who was shot, and rode so pluckily, when wounded to Terrace, and came on to Ogden, died about noon to day from mortification. Dr. Brown expected to be able to save the limb, but unexpectedly mortification set in and death occurred, as above. Hailey & Co., for whom the young man was working when shot, have been telegraphed for, and are expected on this evening’s U. C. train.

Shooting at Kelton. - Yesterday Wm. J. Groes was examined by Justice Jacobs at Corinne, on the charge of killing John Rosevear at Kelton. He was comitted to await the action of the Grand Jury. The particulars of the case are as follows:
About three weeks ago Groes married Susan Rosevear. The young lady’s mother was willing, but her father, who was working at Gold Hill, Nevada, became terribly enraged when he heard of it, and immediately returned home, breathing threatenings and slaughter. On reaching his house he threw his spurs at his wife, and swearing he would kill Groes he started to get his daughter. He drew a pistol on the young man’s father, and seizing his daughter endeavored to take her away. On her husband’s refusal to part with her he said one of them would be in hell in less than half a minute. Whereupon young Groes drew a revolver and shot his father-in-law, who turned, said, coolly, his man was a little too quick for him, walked to his house, sent for his wife, who was afraid to come, and in half an hour from the shooting, expired. Two shots were fired; one went into the floor, the other into Rosevear’s left side. He was a large man, weighing about 190 lbs., and waas 42 years of age. He had been drinking a little, but was not intoxicated. His objection to the marriage was the youth of his daughter. Young Groes will have to await the action of the Grand Jury, but we think it is very doubtful that they will find an indictment against him.
