A case has just come in the form of appeal before the Im- perial Court of Paris, of a nature to serve as a warning to reckless drivers. In December, 1866, a lady named Boreau, while crossing the Boulevard Haussmann, was knocked down by a hackney carriage driven by a man named Ragache. She was severely injured and the driver, together with his master, Carrols, was condemned by the Correctional Police. Madame Boreau then brought a civil action, and recovered 7,000f. damages. The defendants appealed, alleging im- prudence on the part of the plaintiff and exaggeration of the injury sustained but the court now decided that the facts had been conclusively ascertained by the tribunals below, and in consequence it rejected the appeal with costs.
