A Young Man Injured.

William Lagrue, employed on the steamer Saturn, was badly hurt at Collins Bay yesterday afternoon. He was assisting in unloading a cargo of timber when one end of a stick struck him with such force as to throw him ten feet in the air. In alighting he fell across the steamer's rail, badly injuring his chest and back. Dr. Wood was sent for and after dressing the injured man's wounds had him conveyed to the general hospital. It was impossible to ascertain at the time whether or not there were any broken bones.
