MENAI BRIDGE. SHOCKING ACCIDEST.-On Tuesday last an accident of a very serious nature occurred on board the barque Chanticleer, lying in the Straits, near Craigydon, with a cargo of timber for the Messrs Davies. It appears that on the day in question four men were engaged in unload- ing the timber, which is done through the bow-port. The greater part of the baulk having gone through the hole, it naturally lost its balance, and the men were told to hold the winch steady for some time, so that the baulk might be taken out. Three of the men, however, being unused to the work, disregarded the order, so that John ifagoall, an old hand, had to hold the winch himself, but the whole weight of the baulk coming downupon it, he was lifted up by the handle and turned round in the most violeot manner. He was knocked against the deck with great force, and was in an utterly helpless and cri- tical state when picked up. It was found that he had received several scalp wounds, together with more or less serious injuries on the face, the bones of the nose having been broken, and the tongue and upper jawbone were also severely inj ured. The ribs and other parts of the body were likewise injured, but we are happy to say the unfortunate man is progressing favourably under the skilful attention of Dr Jones. The three other meu also received slight injuries, but we understand that they are all doing well.
