On Friday afternoon, Charles Higgins, a coloured man, who was discharged from the Bankside Station of the South Metro- politan Gasworks, after working three shifts, bad an altercation with some men employed at Mr Samuel Isaac's iron wharf. Higgins, getting excited, drew a revolver, and flourished it in a threatening manner. A lighter- man called upon him to put the weapon down, but Higgins refused, and eventually discharged the pistol. The bullet passed througii the lower part of the lighterman's waistcoat, and caused a somewhat severe wound. Higgins ran away, but was stopped by two policemen after crossing the Southwark Bridge. Later in the day he was brought before the magistrate at Soutbwark police-court, and remanded. Higgins asserted that he drew the revolver in self-defence.
