Accident - While the steam boats Sir James Kempt and Toronto were lying at the wharf in Adolphustown, the charge of a small cannon, fired from the latter, entered the leg of one of the sailors on board of the former, and lacerated it most dreadfully. Doctor Dormer, who happened to be at Adolphustown, immediately dressed the wound, and we believe the unfortunate sufferer is now in a fair way to recover.
