SERIOUS ACCIDENT - An accident of a serious nature occurred to Capt. Orr of the str. Cumberland, last Friday morning. The steamer ran aground at the mouth of the river in Owen Sound harbour, and for the purpose of pulling her off a line was fastened to the shore, the other end being passed round the shaft. The strain was very heavy and the rope snapped, the broken end striking Capt. Orr with such force that both his legs were broken and he received other serious injuries... Capt. Orr is well known on the lakes, and has been we believe a very successful commander.
