On Tuesday last, about six o'clock in the evening, Andrew Brodie, employed at the Lint Mill of Buxburn, in walking across the Loft slipped his foot, and falling backwards upon the water wheel then in motion, was instantly killed.  The body, which had stopped the motion of the machinery, was immediately taken up, with very little external mark of violence, there appearing only a slight wound on one cheek.
