MIRACULOUS ESCAPE, On Saturday morning, about noon, as Mr. Matt, of Issington-honse, was driving homewards in his dog- cart, accompanied by his son and daughter, and gently trotting dowa the hill from the Back's Horn Corner into Blacfcaest, he was startled to find a pair of horses coming full gallop aftc-i- him down the hill, with a plough at their heels. The horses had bolted from their work on some adjoining land and contrived to get into the high road. Covering the whole of the road in their headlong career, with the plough plunging aad jumping from side, to side, onwards towards Mr. Mott's vehicle they oame. Mr. Mott jumped out and forced his own horse and trap as closely into the hedge as possible in the hope of escape. Seizing his little girl, he endeavoured to force her into the hedge, bus she in terror clung to him, while the boy still sat in the caTt. Crash came the plough into the cart, dashing Mr. Mott and his child to the ground, and throwing the boy out into the ditch. Down went all three horses and plough and cart, and horses and harness were mixed up in inextricable confusion. Mr. Mott's horse rose and started off, clearing himself from the trap, which was utterly smashed. The plough horses followed, plough and all, leaving the trap in the road. One wheel of the cart went over Mr. Mott's back, but such was the force of the collision that it appears both cart and plough cleared Mr. Mott and his child, the cart-wheel oniy lightly grazing Mr. Mott's back. The boy escaped unhurt, Mr. Mott almost so, and the girl with but few bruises and scratches. The knees of Mr. Mott's horse were broken, but the plough horses escaped almost uninjured. It is stated one of the plough horses is a brute of the most intractable aai vicious disposition,—Griviidford Times.
