ACCIDENTS AND FATALITIES
James Anderson, fourteen years of age, son of Mr M. Anderson, baker, of High street, was yesterday wheeling a barrow, when he slipped and broke his leg, John Franklin, one of the crew of the barque Largo Bay, was drowned by falling into Auckland Harbor from the vessel’s gangway. He was partially intoxicated at the time. Captain John Nichol, well known as master of the schooner Aranra, and formerly of the Julia Pryce, was drowned by falling overboard from that vessel during the voyage from Raratonga to Aitutataki. He sank before an effort could be made to save him, and he was never afterwards seen.
