Sad accident.

--The Columbia (S. C.) South Carolinian, of the 22d, says:

Mr. J. D. Alexander, an officer of the Bank of the State of South Carolina, on business of the Bank, reached Florence on Sunday morning. In passing from one car to another, a pistol in his pocket accidentally exploded, and lodged a bail in his left breast. It is hoped that it did not penetrate into the cavity of the chest or into the lung. Mr. Alexander was carried back to Charleston, suffering great paid from his wound.
