ACCIDENT TO A HORSE One day last week as a valuable mare, belonging to Mr. R. Orlebar, Hinwick House, was employed in leading a cart load of turnips, it had the misfortune to slip in such a manner that it completely broke its thigh bone. As the recovery of the animal was altogether hopeless, of course, it was immediately destroyed.
