EXPLOSION ON A STEAMER AT CARDIFF. About, half-past two o'clock on Thursday mornino- as the screw steamer Saint Columba, of Liverpool, was hauling off from No. 3 Coal-tip in the Roath Basin, Cardiff, a slight explosion of coal gas occurred, one man being badly burned, and another slightly. It appears that as Thos. Baker, temporarily employed by the chief engineer in getting steam up while the vessel was in port, was filling'coal from the bunker shoot there was a temporary jamb; the gas accumulated and ignited at the mouth of the shodt. The man's clothes caught fire, and his mate was thrown down, but, recovering himself, carried Baker into the engine- room, and extinguished the flames. Dr. Laen was quickly in attendance, and dressed the man's wounds who was subsequently removed to the Hamadryad Hospital Ship. On inquiry there in the afternoon the injured man was reported to be progressing favourably. There was no damage to the steamer; and she left in the evening for Port Said.
