A Heavy Sign Which lie Accident* ally Mmol? Inl'laylnc Felled Htm to Hie Sidewalk ? Lew!? loblni, n .Sailor, lln ;lto n I,c?> A serious and probably fatal accident occurred opposite the bakery of Mr. Lawrence Kelly, No. coi Church street, about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Three small boys, brothers, and sons of Mr. Lev! Parker, of Arlington Place, were playing in front of the store, when one of them, Charles H. Parker, aged 4 years, in running from one of his playmates, accidentally touched an up? right sign on the curbstone, when it broke and fell to the ground, catching the little fellow under it. Several gen? tlemen who were standing by, ran to the lad's assistance, und removed the sign. ?>ne of the gentlemen picked up the injured boy, who was then in an un? conscious condition, and carried him to St. Vincent's Hospital, where upon ex? amination by the surgeons there It was discovered thai the lad's skull was frac? tured Jus-t above the left temple, to the extent of about four inches. At 4:"0 o'clock the boy was still un? conscious. His condition is considered very critical, and It is feared that his injuries may prove fatal. Mr. Kelly, in front of whose store the sad accident occurred, was absent from home at the time, but iis soon as he learned what hail happened he went immediately to the hospital to tender his sympathies to the parents of the child, and to render nil possible assist? ance. Upon examination it was dlscovorotl that the pest around which the sign ha<l been put, was very rotten where: it had been driven Into the ground, which accounts for its sudden fall when It was touched by young Parker. ANOTHKR ACCIDENT. T.ewls Tobias, of the ship Charles E. Moody, of Hath. Me., now anchored lit this port, susl lined a compound frac? ture of his left leg while nt work on the vessel off I.'.mbert's Point early yesterday morning in being struck with groat force by a heavy rope.

MARINE INTELLIGENCE Arrival of the Handsome New Steamer Vigilant, Will Take the Place ot Granite City ou Norfolk WllloiiKtiby Spit rtntl old Point Itnnto-Ttio Steamer Croix Chartered. The new steamer Vigilant arrived yesterday for the Norfolk, Ocean View and Wllloughby Spit Hallway to replace the steamer Granite City In the run between the Spit and Old Foint, and was on Inspection view to the public all the morning at the Boston dock, where she 'was visited by a large number of people. The Vigilant is painted white and has a tall black smokestack. She Is 157 tons burden and carries 700 passengers. The dimensions are 123 feet long, 24 feet broad. She has three decks, with a sa? loon on the lower deck for ladies, an? other saloon on the main deck, while the hurricane deck is prepared for a promenade. These saloons are finished in oak. with a hard oil natural color. This is a new feature in steamer decoration, and is a pretty departure from the custom of plain white. The steamer is a propeller. She Is equipped with marine lake boiier en? gines of 150 pounds pressure, with two fore and aft engines, of twelve-inch stroke and 200 revolutions to the min? ute. She is capable of a speed of fif? teen miles to the hour, and will reduce the time between here and i>1?1 Foint to forty-five minutes. Application will be made by the own? ers of the Vigilant to secure permission til ;V? llt -Siell'lli'r o.:u^n View;?The as. sent of the Secretary of the Treasury to the change must first bo secured. Ap? plication for this will ho made through' the collector of thl^port. Her oftlcers will be: I. C. Toler, cap? tain: B. F. Wheeler, first officer; Qeo. R. Smith, chief engineer, and T. M. Howard, purser. She went ou the line last evening. THE ST. OKOIN CHARTERED. The Old Dominion Steamship Co. has chartered the steamship St. Croix, of Boston, to handle the excess of freight and passengers which the increasing traffic of the line supplies. Tile St. Croix is a 2.000 ton boat, very fast, much more so than nny of the present Hoot, and carries 150 passen? gers and a large amount of freight, in the neighborhood of H.OOO tons. The steamer Is now en route here from New York and will probably nrrlve this evening or to-morrow morning. THE O. D.'S NEW BOAT. The Old Dominion has new boats in view, two being expected to be deliv? ered to them within a couple months' time, hut It is likely the new boat will be retained even then for the rapidly increasing trade and well-founded pop? ularity of this line Is building it up at such a rate that there Is likely to be little slacking off of business even in the so-called dull months. To Answer for Their Kill*. W. H. Gibson, colored, was arrested yesterday by Officers White and May, charged with stealing clothing. Detectives Heppel and Childress ar? rested Charles Heard, white, charged with robbery from the poison. Both men will tell their troubles to i Justice Tomlin to-morrow morning.
