p.3 A Severe Accident - Mr. Jeremiah Delaney, mate of the schr. Shandon, now at Garden Island, met with a serious accident. The steam wire, for drawing out the timber, was being used in heaving the vessel backwards. Mr. Delaney was caught by the dog, which flew out of the timber tearing the calf of his legs and exposing the bone. His wounds were attended to and he was then sent to his home at St. Catharines by rail.
