p.1 Fairmount's Watchman Injured - Peter McMillan, of Collingwood, a watchman on the steamer Fairmount, met with a painful accident at Port Colborne. While the steamer was making a dock McMillan pulled a line through a ring, and passed a stick through the eye to hold the rope from slipping out. The strain on the line caused the stick to snap in twain, when one end of it flew up, striking McMillan about the head and face. He will recover.
