Killed in a Mine.
This morning about 9 o'clock Mr. Jacob Legeer, aged about fifty years, and an old miner in the Georges Creek region, was instantly killed by the fall of a roof of coal in Hoffman mine, and John Muray[sic], who was working in the same room with Mr. Legeer, was dangerously, if not fatally, injured, having been caught under the ponderous mass of coal. Mr. Legeer and Mr. Murray both entered the mine this morning in bright spirits, and were engaged in cutting out the side of the room in the mine, when to the amazement of Mr. Murray the roof gave way, completely burying Mr. Legeer and partly burying Mr. Murray. An alarm was sounded as speedily as possible and willing hands soon moved the coal from off the imprisoned men. Mr. Murray was removed first and was found to be in a dangerous condition. When the body of Mr. Legeer was recovered, life was extinct, showing that his death must have been instantaneous. He leaves a wife, three boys and two girls, who reside in Vale Summit.
