KICKED BY A HORSE.--On Sunday evening last a boy about 10 years old, son of Mr. John Fitzpatrick, of this village, went to catch a horse which had been turned out to graze on the common, with an ordinary driving bridle, with blinkers, on its head. Approaching from behind, without speaking, he startled the animal, which kicked just as he got within reach and struck him over the left eye, cutting the flesh down to the bone and inflicting a wound fully three inches in length, as it extended from the middle of the forehead to the temple. Fortunately the horse had no shoes on its hind feet, for Dr. Wilson, who was sent for, thinks that if it had been shod the boy's skull would inevitably have been fractured. The doctor drew the lips of the wound together and put in a few stitches, and nothing worse than a scar is likely to result from the accident.
