Redington, joined British Army and rose to rank of captain, serving under Wellington in Spain. Is this he? Connaught Journal Galway, Thursday, September 25, 1823 PROVIDENTIAL ESCAPE. Yesterday, about two o'clock, as Christopher Redington, of Kilcornan, Esq. was conversing with Mrs. Blake, of Frenchfort, in the streets of Oran, a horse, with a car attached to it, (which was incautiously suffered to stand at a door, without any person to take care of it,) took fright, and furiously ran through the streets, by which Mr. Redington (not perceiving his danger until too late) was precipitated from his horse, and received a very severe contusion on the forehead. The shaft of the car ran through the belly of the horse on which Mr. Redington was riding, and with the extreme force broke the poor animal's back, of which it died a short time. We feel infinite pleasure in stating, that no fears are entertained for the safety of this respectable and amiable gentleman, whose escape was most fortunate.
