p.2 Accident - Mr. Ira Breck of Garden Island met with an accident which might have been attended with serious results. On his passage home yesterday by the ferry boat he was sitting on the side of the vessel, which, as it approached the wharf, bumped against the schooner John A. Macdonald in consequence of which he was thrown into the water. Mr. Donnelly happened to be on hand and rescued him from what might have been a watery grave. We hope Mr. Breck will feel no inconvenience from his ducking.
