A Seihoi's ActimsNT ov Hbsb Farm
A serious if not fatal accident occurred ou
the Iless Farm this morning. Tho unfortu
nald man's name is James Draw ley, brother
or Clinton Brawley, who is connected with
Joseph Ovory in some wells on the above
named farm. By soiuo means be was
caught by the fly-wheel of an engine, and
his whole body drawn through a space of a
very few inches. The extent of bis inju
ries are not yet known, but, judging from
tho obaructer of the accident, it is feared
they may prove fatal.
Bonxkii on- TnB Proposed Trot. Mr.
Bonner has sent to thu editor of the New
York Tribune tho following: The statement
published that I have consented to lot Dexter
trot in a race, is wholly rrronoous. I have
never let any one of my horses trot in a
raoe, and have never thought of lotting one
of them trot a raoo under any oircumstances.
Fortunately, I am not obliged to resort to
tbis means, even for the purpose of contribu
ting wbat I think proper to a deserving be
nevolent object. Whilo I will not trot Dex
r against any borso, even for tho most
worthy purpose, I will pay $100,000 in cash,
ior another homo from any part ol the
world, if the world can produce ono that
trill trot, as be trotted last wcek; a mile in
2:21 to a road wagon and carryiug the
