SINGULAR INCIDENT IN A LAW COUBT.—On Friday afternoon in last week, in one of the courts of the Queen's Bench DWeian of the High Court of Justice, a rather unusual &ud awkward accident occurred. While Mr. Justice Mathew was trying a case which had reference to the sale of a patent dressing for foot rot in sheep, one of the sample bottles containing the liquid was accidentally overturned on the solicitors' table. The bottle broke with a loud report, followed by a cloud of offensive fumes which tilled the caurt, the liquid being apparently impregnated with a very strong acid. Tha accident caused a good deal of com- motion, and the court had to be thoroughly ventilated before business could be resumed.
