A bull run-off affair.

--The train on the Central Railroad which left this city at 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning last, came in contact with a bull on the track about 120 miles from the city, by which the engine was thrown from the track and much damaged.--The evening trains, both from Macon and Savannah, were detained until eight o'clock yesterday morning, by which time the workmen had erected a temporary track around the damaged locomotive, which could not be immediately moved. In consequence of the delay the train due here yesterday morning at half-past 7 did not reach the city until about four o'clock in the afternoon.--Savannah Morning News, Sept. 12th.
