TJie ice-bound rails of the electric railway near city square again proved inconvenient for travelers in a light sleigh Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock, for at that time two men were suddenly emitted from their com fortable warm seats to the road when the sleigh-runner became wedged in the lails and overturned. The men were of middle-age and the driver clung to the reins, preventing their your? steed from dashing away and probably in curring considerable damage a the sleigh, when the horse became excited from the overturn, was then on its side. The driver was dragged a few feet, before stopping the horse, but with tho assistance of his partner, soon righted the sleiirh, picked up the robes and cushions and they were on their way. This is but one of several such incidents which have occurred at this spot, at the junction of Wahinz ton and Main street of the electric line, this winter, none of which have happened to prove of any consequence.
