– Whist returning to Belford, from the Farmers’ Union, last Tuesday, a melancholy fatality happened to Mr. J. Maxwell. It appears that the trace-chain of the spring cart broke and the horses became uncontrollable. A lad, who is a son of the deceased, jumped out without being hurt, and the father, in attempting to do so, to go to the horses heads, got entangled in the reins and was dragged under the horses’ feet. He was brought home and attended to by Mr. Goldsmiidth (Dr. Read’s assistant) but died at 2 o’clock on Wednesday morning. The deceased was highly esteemed and leaves a widow and seven young children.
