p.2 Port of Kingston - Imports - 23,24.

-An accident occurred on Tuesday last, arising from the carelessness of the hands of the steamer Kingston, which might have proved serious. A gentleman going on board at mid-day on some business, was suddenly precipitated into the hold of the vessel. After getting on board, his eyes had not become accustomed to the change from the dazzle of the sun without, to the subdued light within, and therefore did not perceive the hatch to be uncovered. Fortunately in his descent, he did not come in contact with anything but the flooring, and was but slightly hurt. The officers of vessels should be more careful that their men do their duty, for it is not an easy matter to repair a damaged limb.
