From the Wed., Oct. 12, 1864 issue

—A little girl was violently run against yesterday morning, in the neighborhood of Seabrook Hospital, by an ambulance, to which was attached a pair of runaway horses, and so seriously injured internally that but little hopes are entertained of her recovery. The wheels of the vehicle barely escaped running over the unfortunate little creature, the hub to one of them striking her in the breast and knocking her senseless, some distance off, thereby producing the injury under which she is suffering.
