—Four negro men, operatives at the Tredegar Foundry, were very seriously injured yesterday by the falling of a portion of a burned roof on them. They were clearing away the rubbish of the late fire when a portion of the debris fell. One of the men had his skull fractured, and another a leg broken. All were badly hurt.
