Accident - We learn that while the barque Jessie Drummond was entering Lock 8, Welland Canal, on Tuesday evening at 9:30, a sailor named Henry Pierce, while checking the bow line, got his foot entangled, and it was taken off at the ankle. He was removed to the hospital, and the injured limb had to be amputated about six inches below the knee. The captain kindly denoted him $50.
