--About two o'clock yesterday afternoon the horse attached to Mr. A. S. Shafer's private carriage ran away, and when reaching 4th street, on Broad, the animal fell, breaking one of his legs. There was in the carriage no one but a negro, who sustained no injury; but, for a time, from his great distress at the condition of the horse, it was hard to determine which was worse off. The sufferings of the poor beast were of such a character that in mercy to him the lancet was applied, and he was bled to death shortly after the accident.
