It galloped at great speed past the Post Oflicc up tho Cutting, and swerved an it camo to the Octigon, from which the unimal apparently was going up Stuart street. As it made the sharp turn, however, it slipped and foil, with the rider underneath, M'Millan was immediately picked up by some of tho bystanders, and carried to the West Coast Hotel in an unconscious state. Dr Teevan, who was culled, made an examination, and ordered tho removal of the man, who by this timo had sufficiently regained consciousness to be ablo to give his name and address, to the hospital, whithor he was conveyed. Ur Teevan at first thought that M'Millan's skull had been fractured, but on inquiring at tho hospital wo learned that that had not happened, and that M'Millan's injuries aro not as serious as anticipated.
