--At Cincinnati, on Sunday fore a little boy, 5 years old, son of Mr. Joseph Pancoast, was bitten in the cheek by a savage horse attached to a butcherer's wagon, and the beast did not let go his hold until a piece of flesh as large as a dollar was torn out, actually leaving bare the jaw and teeth.
The animal swallowed the human morsel, whilst the poor boy fell hunting to the ground.
