TEDDIXOTOX, tho' winner of (he Derby in 1851, had a narrow cscnpe a fow days ago. Elberfeld- Gazelle says : -Tho Belgian stenmor Baron Osy, inrivod at Antwerp from London, having on board two very vulunblo horses, which had been purchased in England for tho Emperor of Austria, mid woro thon on their way to"Vienna, imdortho oavo of an English jockoy. Ono ol' tltcso horses is tho ro nownod Teddington, for which tho emporor had paid the sum ot'L.170O.. In Antwerp harbour preparations wcro made to land tho .horses. Whilst tho Oustom-liouso

ohTeors woro cngngod in inspecting (ho effects of tho pus sèngors, a loud cry and a splash wcro suddenly heard. Teddington had fallon into tho water. Tho steamboat peuple had placed a board without railings from (lie vessel to tho quay for tho liorso to walk ashoro upon ; but tho llery animal, feeling tho insecurity mid weak- ness of tho bonrd, mudo a bnokward plunge, and fell from a height of 25 or 30 feet into tho Scheldt. Tho liorso sank to tho bottom, but fortunately roso again to tho sur- face, when ho waa seized by tho headband after, n struggle of ubotit lialf-an-hotir's duration was brought to land. Though apparently uninjured, ho must have suffered by his involuntary bath in such cold weather." *
