p.2 Our townsman, Captain Gaskin, on Thursday last was the victim of an accident, by which he was thrown into the hold of his vessel, the British Lion, but very fortunately escaped with nothing more serious than a bruised body. The vessel was being towed with others over the St. Clair flats, at the head of Lake Erie, when a danger arose of one of the vessels colliding with the British Lion. The captain, who is a very heavy man, and well advanced in years, was endeavoring to prevent the collision, when he was suddenly lifted from his feet, how he does not know - and hurled headlong into the hold, where he lay for some time insensible, but on recovering consciousness he was happy to discover that not a bone was broken, and he has since been able to return home and "lay up" for repairs.
More Steamers Laid Up - The steamers Passport and Bay of Quinte have also gone into winter quarters here, leaving the Pierrepont and Gazelle the only steamers running from this port, the former of these not regularly, but as steadily as the Cape Vincent route, very inactive at this season of the year, will admit of.
