Accident. --Between 8 and 9 o'clock yesterday morning, a youth, named George Gilbert, while firing Christmas salutes with a pistol near the corner of Clay and Adams streets, was severely wounded in his right hand and face by its explosion. A physician was sent for afterwards, who found it necessary to amputate one of the little fellow's fingers. The accident was the result of over-charging the weapon.
