Child Run over and killed. (search)
Child Run over and killed. --Yesterday afternoon, about 5 o'clock, a little child named William Graham, son of Michael Graham, was run over by a horse and wagon driven by Joseph Haberstraw, on 17th street, between Broad and Marshall, and almost instantly killed. A wheel probably passed over the little fellow's head, as indicated by the fearful contusions upon it.

The prisoner is a miller by profession, and proprietor of the mill in the Valley known as "Victor's."
