THE MOUNT CARGILL ROAD ACCIDENT.

TO THE EDITOK.

Siu,—l hope you will pardon mo for referring to Ivano'e disaster on the Mount Cargillroad. It occurred in the morning, before daylight. Tho roads were bad, and he was driving very carefully down the hill when suddenly he came upon a dray, unyoked, standing on the road. He attempted to avoid it, but was too close before noticing it, and there being no noise to warn him a collision took place, and he was thrown out on tho road. Thero was nobody at hand, and in tho mangled condition, in which he was he was obliged to drag himself a considerable distance to the nearest house, where he got assistance. The inmates were frightened at his appearance at first, but comprehending the situation, they rendered him all the assistance in their power, and had him immediately conveyed to the hospital, where he now lies. It certainly was a serious accident. His external injuries arc severe, and his internal injuries can cnly be guessed at as yet. It is to bo hoped that steps will be taken to reach tho parties who were guilty of such culpable negligence as to lcavo a dray on the public road during the night, so as to prevent the recunence of a similar disaster.—l am, etc., A Friend of the Sufferer, * Duuedin, June 17.
