ACCIDENTS AND FATALITIES
- —-• Nelson, master of the ketch Aparima, while setting the mainsail of his vessel in Pigeon Bay (Canterbury) yesterday was knocked overboard by the boom and drowned, bis mates being unable to help him. The body has not yet been recovered. Edward Mills, a lad employed at Hudson’s Factory, was received into the hospital this morning. His right hand was badly crushed, the palm being lacerated, through being caught and jammed between two rollers. Dr Barclay dressed the hand, and Mills shortly afterwards was able to proceed home. At the inquest on the child Carnegy, who was burned to death at Palmerston on the 2nd inst., the jury added a rider censuring the parents for not having sent for a doctor immediately the accident occurred.
Marquis of Salisbury resided in Sandhurst in 1864.
