SERIOUS ACCIDENT IN THE HHONDDA. COLLAPSE OF A PORTION OF u\ NEW CHURCH. THREE MASONS INJURED. On Friday evening a fearful accident occurred at the St. Illtyd Church, which is being built at Williamstown, near Penygraig, whereby three workmen named William Bryant, residing at Caemawr, Penrhiwfer, and William James, about 170 years of age, and his son, Henry James, resid- ing at Upper Williamstown, sustained serious injuries. It appears that while the three tin- fortunate workmen were engaged near the belfry, about 24 feet above the base of the structure, the upper portion of the chancel forming the arch suddenly gave way, precipitating the poor fellows amid the dvbrix, which consisted of large stones, to the ground. It is estimated that tne section of the structure which collapsed weighed about 15 tons, two of the huge stone blocks weigh- ing aboat lOcwt. each. Bryant sustained a frac- ture of the skull near the base, William James a fracture of the leg a few inches above the ankle, and Henry, his son, had his collar-bone and two or three of his ribs broken. Dr. Weichert and Mr. Leicester, assistants to Dr. Davies, Penygraig, attended to the severe injuries of the hapless fellows soon after the accident. Bryant was quite insensible when he was got out from under the fall, and had not regained consciousness when inquiries were made as to his condition on Saturday afternoon.
