GENERAL NIW3. Accident.- A frightful, and nearly fatal, accident happened between Belfast and Leura on Sunday last. Mr Alfred Bennett was driving in a riding cart from Mr Flower's residence at Leura, Mrs. Wm. Rutledge, being also in the vehicle, and Mr. Lynar on the back seat; when about half way to town one of the horses bolted and kicked the vehicle furiously. Mr Bennett was unable to control the animals, who ran against a fence with such violence that he was thrown from the vehicle with great violence and has sustained a compound fracture of the thigh and other serious injuries. Mr. Lynar jumped from the back seat, but the horses again bolted, with Mrs Rutledge who held on in her seat until they were stopped by Mr. John Flower who was riding out towards Leura. Mrs. Rutledge fortunately escaped injury, but was rendered nearly insensible at the time from the fright. Doctors Jermyn and Boyd are in attendance GuNso.-G1uano is said to exist in great quantity on the Julia Percy Island, between the Ports of Bcltifat and Portland.
