A little daughter of Mr. John Engelbrecht, living near Russellville, was accidentally shot and dangerously wounded a few days ago, by the discharge of a gun in the hands of Emanuel Taylor, who, in passing out of a room, struck the gun against a door-jam, which discharged the contents into the breast of the child sitting across the room, the shot passing through the left lung and out near the spinal column between the shoulders, creating a serious and painful wound.
