Accidentally Shot.


Kimball, Lawrence & Co.'s merchant train of seventeen wagons arrived in the city on Monday forenoon. From Mr. Lawrence we learn that John Adey, late of Philadelphia, one of the teamsters accidentally shot himself, in the right arm, when about 60 miles east of Ash Hollow, resulting in his death. He was drawing his loaded gun from the wagon, when something caught the trigger and the full shot entered the right arm above the elbow. He was at first not considered in danger; but mortification set in and in eight days after the accident he expired. His wife was in the company under Capt. John Smith.
