Accident – A little negro girl, owned by Mrs. Mary Ginter, of Henrico, was gored in her left side by a vicious cow yesterday evening, in the neighborhood of the Second Market, and severely injured. One of the horns of the animal penetrated the bowels of the girl, making a dreadful gash, through which the entrails could be plainly discerned. Medical assistance was immediately procured; when the wound was properly dressed and the girl conveyed to the residence of her mistress.
