(PSOT (2): “There were probably three thousand persons on the ground, and quite a number of carriages encircled the spectators. There was considerable excitement occasioned for a short time by the wild movements of a runaway horse, who, in his efforts to release himself from a sulky to which he was attached, scattered the crowd in every direction; fortunately no one was injured. The want of the usual facilities generally extended to the reporters on such occasions prevents us from giving the report in detail. We shall give the score next week.”)
