Qoeeii Accident.—A peculiar accident happened on Monday afternoon (says the “ Westport Times”) to a man named Eukland, who was engaged in bush clearing on Mr Organ’s land, Nine-Mile Road. He was standing in the fork of a tree, about 12 feet from the ground, cutting another tree which, in falling, jammed his foot, at the same time capsizing him. Thus he hung in mid air firmly held by the foot, until his cries attracted Messrs Colvin, Organ, Crowie, and another, who happened to be on the road at the time. Two of the rescuers prized the tree off Eukland’s foot, whilst the other two caught him below when he fell.
