Narrow Escape.

While three sailors on the schooner Elvina were slushing the foremast this morning the fore throat halliards, which were attached to the triangle on which they were seated, slipped from around a pin, precipitating the men to the deck, a distance of twenty feet. One of the men, Alfred Slee, was stunned by striking the deck and was taken up insensible to the Washington Hotel, and Dr. Mattoon was summoned. A careful examination satisfied the doctor that the man was without serious injury and that rest would bring him around all right. The other two providentially escaped without injury.
