Accident.

--On Friday evening, about four o'clock, a wagon, driven by a son of Mr. John W. Camp, containing his wife, another lady, and two or three children of Mr. Camp's, while coming down Grace street, was upset near the corner of 6th, the wheels of the wagon going over the body of the driver, who at the time, said that he was unhurt. Most, if not all, of the occupants of the wagon, were injured. A little girl, Mr. Camp's daughter, very sprightly and intelligent, received a severe cut on the head, as well as some bruises on her limbs; Mrs. Camp was cut upon the face, being also badly bruised — in fact, all of them were more or less injured. Some time after the occurrence Mr. Camp's son, who had been driving the wagon, complained of being unwell, (he had made no complaint at the time of the accident,) and experienced some difficulty in walking. Dr. Harrison was called in and rendered the necessary medical attention.--At the time of the accident the children were carried into the house of Mr. T. J. Evans, and the ladies into that Mrs. Wm. Mitchell, where they were treated with all the kindness which their situation required.
