On Saturday last a melancholy accident happened to a son of Mr. Twentyman,
of the Excise, at Penrith, a little boy, only five years of age.  With some
boys of his own age, he went into a field where a pony belonging to his
father was grazing with some other horses, in attempting to catch which he
received a kick on the forehead, which fractured his skull, so that his life
has been hitherto dispaired of.
