A member of the Rifle Company
in our city, was severely injured on
Saturday evening, while engaged in
loading a cannon which was being
fired on the levee. There were so
many contradictory reports, that it
was impossible to ascertain the par
ticulars. So far as we have heard,
the unfortunate man had several fin
gers blown off and one or both of his
arms badly broken by the premature
discharge of the cannon. Of late,
such accidents are of common occur
rence, and should be guarded against.
Let this be A warning to our inexpe
I Mr. C'harhls )ailee will please
accept our thanks for late news.

us under obligations for late papers.

that such an outrage upon commercial
