A VERY BAD ACCIDENT.--On Saturday, the 9th inst., as Mr. Thomas Forest was driving down the Little Bob hill, about a mile from the village, with a load of wheat, the front end board of his waggon slipped out and he fell forward onto the backs of the horses, which frightened them so badly that they ran away and continued running until they reached Mr. Orr's Temperance House, where they were caught and stopped. How far they carried Mr. Forrest or how he was hurt we have not been able to learn; but he was found in the road with one of his legs broken in three places between the ankle and the knee, and, it was subsequently discovered, with serious internal injuries. He was carried to Mr. Orr's where he now lies, with Dr. Bonnell at constant attendance; but he condition is, we are informed, so critical that his recovery is considered extremely doubtful.
