John M 'Master, an elderly man, was found in Jetty street yesterday afternoon lying in the middle of some metal. He had several bruises about his face, and had sustained several cuts about the eyes. Constable Drury saw the man lying motionless, and conveyed him in an express to the hospital, where he was attended by Dr Barclay, who, upon examination, found that one rib had been broken, in addition to the other injuries mentioned. M'Master, who is an inmate of the Benevolent Institution, and who is very weak, could not explain how he sustained the injuries, but the probabilities are that he must have fallen on some of the rough stones, and the shock causing semi-insensibility he was unable to rise, and lay there until he waß discovered.
