Child Run over and killed.

--Yesterday afternoon, about 5 o'clock, a little child named William Graham, son of Michael Graham, was run over by a horse and wagon driven by Joseph Haberstraw, on 17th street, between Broad and Marshall, and almost instantly killed. A wheel probably passed over the little fellow's head, as indicated by the fearful contusions upon it. The circumstances having been communicated to the police, Haberstraw was taken into custody by officers Seal and Bibb, and the case will probably be investigated by the Mayor this morning. The prisoner is a miller by profession, and proprietor of the mill in the Valley known as "Victor's."
