--A horse was drowned in the basin yesterday.
It belonged to Mr. Joseph H. Crenshaw, and was attached to his carriage.
The vehicle was being driven along the bank when the shaft of a tumbrel cart struck the horse in passing, and frightened it, when it backed, carrying into the water the carriage and another horse.
One horse was gotten out alive, and the carriage was rescued in a very moist condition.
