A Young Lady shot with an air-gun.

--A very queer accident happened in New Haven, Conn., on Sunday afternoon, to Miss Susan A. Thorpe, a private school teacher in B. M. Porter's family. While she was returning from church she was shot with a bullet in the left ankle. The ball perforated a rubber boot, and in consequence of the circuitous course it followed around the bone, it was not deemed advisable by the doctor to extract it. No report was heard by either Miss T. or those accompanying her, and the accident is supposed to have been the result of some careless person experimenting with an air-gun.
