David Edwards, carter

On Thursday evening last, as David Edwards, carter, was returning home with his cart, loaded with potatoes, past the Trinity Muir toll bar, in attempting to leap up upon the shaft, his foot slipped, and he fell before the wheel, which went over his right leg, and injured it so greatly, as to bring to a locked jaw, which occasioned his death on Wednesday morning.
