A very sad accident, which has since terminated fatally, happened on Saturday the 10th instant, to Mr. John Jackson, third son of Mr. Jackson, alderman and magistrate of this town. 


The deceased, who had lately resided in London, was an expert gymnast, and had erected in connection with the house in which he resides, a private gymnasium in which it was his practice to exercise. 


On the day above named he fell from a bar a distance of about six feet, injuring his spine and internal organs to such an extent that circulation was impaired. He was attended by two medical men, but the injuries baffled surgical skill, and he gradually sunk and expired on Thursday.


The deceased was was twenty years of age, and had lately entered the civil service.


The body was removed to Newbury, being buried at the Cemetery on Tuesday, and out of respect to the father of the deceased, who is a churchwarden, a muffled peal was rung.
