Narrow escape. --On Wednesday evening last Mr. Wm. B. Cook, of this city, had a narrow escape for his life, caused by the running away of his sulky horse. Mr. C. had been to his farm a few miles west of the city, and started to return in a trotting silky. On getting near Stony Run the horse took fright and dashed off at full speed. He had only run a short distance when Mr. C. was thrown out between the wheel and the shaft, and his right foot getting caught in the cross bar, he was dragged thirty yards before his shoe pulled off, and thus relieved him from his perilous position. Though severely bruised on his right side none of his bones were broken and he has reason for feeling thankful that his injuries are no worse.
