Lancashire and Yorkshire.

A collision between a passenger and a coke train took place at Huddersfield station on Monday. A down passenger train, from Manchester to Leeds, was crossing the up line at the usual points, to draw up against the platform, when a coke train on the up line ran into it. The concussion was violent, the passenger train was driven back some distance, and the passengers got out in great alarm, but without any further injuries than a few superficial bruises. The stoker of the coke train was, however, severely wounded in his left foot, and had to be conveyed to the infirmary. Another engine was got out to forward the train to Leeds, and the passengers proceeded on their journey after a short delay.
