Curious Mishap. - Yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon as Messrs PEEL, of Sandwath, were driving down King Street, Wigton, from the market, they met with a curious accident. The conveyance was stopped to pick up Mr BELL, of Crotton, and as the horse started forward it reared up. This caused a heavy sack and other articles to slide to the end of the conveyance, breaking the shafts, and throwing the three occupants backwards out of the trap. The unfortunate trio escaped with a shaking, but the trap was damaged.
