p.3 Accident At Portsmouth - Two men were seriously hurt at the Portsmouth Marine Railway yesterday. It seems in moving the steamer Norseman it was necessary to use a temporary capstan, and when under a heavy strain the post drew out of its socket, thus throwing Messrs. Mooney and Tait violently on their faces on the ground. It is hoped their injuries will not be serious. The accident happened in the latter part of the forenoon.

Shelved At Last - Nellie Sherwood has at last gone into winter quarters and today Capt. Tyo stripped her. It is reported that the schooner Lem Ellswood made the trip from Port Dalhousie to Cape Vincent, some years ago, on January 14th. She was sailed by the noted Capt. Saxey Brooks.

A Dry Dock - It is reported that 2 mariners are about to secure a dry dock in Buffalo and bring it to this city. It will be capable of docking vessels 185 ft. in length. Such a dock has long been needed here.
