In coming to town from Wentworth-house the Prince of Wales encountered an alarming accident, by which, providentially, was attended by no ill consequence. About two miles on the other side of Newark, a cart crossing the road struck the axle of the Prince’s coach and overturned it. It was on the verge of a slope, and the carriage fell a considerable way, turned over twice and was shivered to pieces. ….We rejoice to say that the Prince received little injury.
