Gorham, N. Y. - Philander Bassett
of Seneca met with quite a serious accident last week. He was going up a ladder to the hay mow, when the ladder slipped to one side throwing him down on his shoulder, dislocating it and otherwise bruising him. Drs. J. H. Allen & Son made him as comfortable as could be expected.

Quite a singular accident occurred to Mrs. James Young of Gorham, lately. When driving from the depot at Stanley with her husband in a skeleton wagon, the wheel on her side dropped into a rut and she slid out on her feet breaking her leg just above the ankle.

A serious accident befel Mrs. Seymour Albey on Wednesday morning last. She lives over the bottling establishment of Geo. A. Peel, corner of Exchange and Canal sts. She stepped out on the piazza to throw over a pan of water, when she lost her balance and fell to the ground, first alighting upon Peel's hand-cart. She struck upon her right shoulder and breast. Dr. H. D. Weyburn was called, who found the injuries limited to flesh bruises, and soothing appliances soon relieved her of soreness and pain. The lady is in a "delicate" situation, and it is a marvel that she has escaped premature childbirth. The doctor says she is out of danger.

Mr. and Mrs. George Organ,
well-known residents of the south part of this town, met with a serious accident while on their way to this village yesterday morning. In turning around near the school house on the Lake shore road, Mr. Organ was thrown from the buggy, and subsequently Mrs. Organ, having no means of restraining the horse and fearing a collision with an approaching team, jumped to the ground. Her husband suffered very severe injuries to the face and scalp, and she was badly bruised. Fortunately neither had any bones broken. Dr. Carson of this village was called to dress the wounds, and at last accounts the patients were doing well.

All About a Hat - One day last week, James Maher, of East Bloomfield, visited Z. Rozman's store on Main street in this village, ostensibly for the purpose of buying a cap. On taking off a fur cap which he had tried on, he accidentally tore it, and the proprietor of the store demanded pay for the cap. This was refused, and suit was brought before Justice Doolittle and a jury on Saturday. The jury decided that the defendant should pay for the cap, and rendered a verdict for plaintiff for $3.50 and costs, the whole amount approximating $11.

Naples, N. Y. -
As Will Lyon was driving the team of S. D. Lyon through town yesterday, one horse fell, suddenly stopping the wagon, and Will was thrown violently from a high spring seat to the frozen ground, striking on his head. He was completely stunned and apparently badly hurt. He was carried into L. L. Sutton's store and soon recovered consciousness, but was in a dazed condition for some time. It is hoped the injury will not prove serious.

It is stated that Fred Wood of Farmington, who, it will be remembered, was severely injured last October by the premature discharge of a gun while hunting on the lake shore, has entirely lost the sight of one eye, and the sight of the remaining one is much impaired -- gradually failing, in fact, so that the injuries received by the unfortunate young man will, undoubtedly, result in total blindness.

Mr. Peter Martin,
a farmer who resides in the town of Bristol, met with a serious accident at Wilcox's saw mill on Pleasant street in this village on Monday, resulting in the loss of three fingers. While awaiting the completion of a piece of work for himself, he volunteered his assistance to an employee, who was engaged in sawing a plank, and carelessly allowed his hand to come in contact with the rapidly revolving buzz saw.

Martin Nylon,
a Geneva shoemaker, has challenged Sullivan, the pugilist, to fight him in the prize ring. Perhaps Martin's nose is out of joint. It certainly will be when Sullivan gets through with him. Geneva is getting too fast.

Mrs. Albert Smith, living a little out of this village, received a severe concussion of the spine on Friday last by being thrown from a wagon. The mule which Mr. Smith was driving became frightened and ran, injuring Mrs. Smith.

Stabbing Affray at Geneva - William Roberts, in custody of an officer, was brought to Canandaigua and lodged in jail, charged with deadly assault upon a young Indian at Geneva on Thursday evening of last week. Roberts stabbed the Indian three or four times with a knife, inflicting serious wounds, which may prove fatal, though the victim was still alive at last accounts. A young man named Richard Walsh was arrested with Roberts, but as Roberts confessed to having done the stabbing, Walsh was admitted to bail in $500 to answer the charge of complicity in the assault. It appears that a party of St. Regis Indians have recently taken a small house at Geneva for the purpose of manufacture and sale of baskets, beaded goods and trinkets, etc., and two of the party were on Exchange street near the railroad, when the assault occurred. Roberts claims that he did the stabbing in self-defense, while the Indians claim that the assault was wholly unprovoked. A physician was summoned, who found that the Indian was seriously injured and a coroner was then summoned, who took the Indian's antemortem deposition. District Attorney Armstrong went to Geneva Friday morning to investigate the affair, and he was present when the coroner read the statement to the Indian and which he swore to as true. We copy two or three paragraphs from the Geneva Advertiser on the subject:

"These Indians are completely destitute, with not an article of furniture in the house, and very little bedding, sleeping upon the floor; but they have been most kindly provided for by the Sisters, and are looked after by Rev. Fathers McManus and Moran, who will spare nothing for their comfort. The law must of course wait the result of the man's injuries. Great indignation is felt in Geneva over this affair, by none more so than in the locality where it occurred. The "Butt End", as it is called, has always been made the place for such assaults as these, but in most cases, when simmered right down, the fault has been found to lie with persons who resided in other parts of the village. In this case the identity of the assailants is beyond question. In connection with it, the persons who sold the Indians intoxicating liquors are liable in heavy penalties, as the statute prohibits the sale of such drinks to Indians."

An accident befell Will Gallup while unloading goods at the depot one day last week, which, to say the least, terminated very fortunately. After stepping into the empty wagon to return, the horse started suddenly before he had taken the lines, and whirling around by the fence, overturned the wagon and threw its occupant to the ground. Not being injured, he recovered his feet instantly and caught the horse. The wagon was somewhat injured.

Bristol Center, N. Y. -
Quite a spirited runaway occurred about a mile south of here one day last week, in which Mrs. Geo. H. Childs and a spirited young horse belonging to James Naracong were the principal actors. A little south of Nelson Packard's they met a country necessity -- a tin peddler from Orleans (so said), who, peddler-like, kept the track, and in attempting to pass him, the carriage was thrown over, Mrs. Childs striking the ground on her side, bruising her about the shoulder and hip quite severely. The horse ran about two miles before stopping, and succeeded in injuring the carriage quite badly.

The fourteen year old boy, Henry Whitney,  of Phelps, who led the shooting at the Syracuse glass ball tournament, is certainly a phenomenon.  He uses a nine and one-half pound gun, and when let alone is a dead shot.  He does not miss a ball in shooting his regular string.  It is only when his competitors get him excited by talking and betting that he occasionally scores a lost ball.  Good judges state that if he had been let alone he would not have lost a ball during the three days shooting.  He has only practiced on glass balls for two months.

Seneca Castle, N. Y. - 
Last Saturday morning while Mrs. Jessie Thatcher was busy doing her housework, she accidentally hit her elbow, which caused her to faint just as she was starting to do down the cellar stairs. That is the last of her recollection, until some time afterwards she found herself lying at the bottom of the stairs with her face bruised, her lip cut through, and two teeth knocked out. Being alone in the house, it is uncertain how long she remained unconscious, but from the state of the fire, baking, and other matters, it is conjectured that nearly or quite an hour transpired before she recovered her consciousness. Under the judicious care of Dr. Bell, she is so far recovered as to be able to be about the house.

Runaway this Morning -
One of Maxwell Bros. chestnut horses, attached to a one-seated democrat wagon, in which were Mr. Joyes, driver, Mrs. Jane Baxter and Miss Lizzie Robinson, became uncontrollable this morning while going through Linden st. The breech strap had broken, and the wagon consequently came in contact at every step with the horse's hind legs, which was the cause of his affright. He whirled into Castle st. on a run, and flew up the street towards home at a rapid pace, the driver pluckily holding him to the road. Mrs. Baxter became so frightened that at the Main st. crossing, she climbed over the seat and leaped out behind. The fall stunned her to unconsciousness, in which condition she was picked up by Messrs. Hindmarch, Updyke and others and borne into Pembroke's grocery. Simple remedies of camphor, ammonia and water soon restored her but she complained of an injury to her head and nausea, but it is believed she sustained no serious injury. Boyes and Miss Robinson kept their seats, and in making the ascent of "Ruckle's hill", the horse was pulled down and the last named parties landed safely.

She complained that he forced her to get into a wagon against her will and ride after a wild and vicious horse, and that she was in fear of sustaining bodily harm. The accused pleaded not guilty and the case was adjourned till the 9th, when the couple were allowed by the Justice to settle the matter upon payment of costs. A. Hemenway appeared for the people, and E. C. Beeman for defendant.

Last Saturday, a young man named William Cole was oiling the gearing of a saw in a portable saw-mill stationed in the western part of the town of Naples, when he stumbled and fell upon the saw, and his right shoulder and upper arm were lacerated and gouged in a most horrible manner, the saw reaching to the bone of the arm and breaking it. The motion of the saw was quite slow, for it had just been started, rendering the cut far more ragged than if the motion had been rapid. In the struggle to get away the victim threw his left arm and hand upon the saw, and they also were torn and mangled. The blood flowed copiously. Drs. Gallagher and Wettling attended to the sufferer. The shoulder wound required fifty stitches. It was considered doubtful if the young man recovered.

Five years ago last July Mrs. John Root, of Gorham, lost a gold ring, and about two weeks ago, while taking up some tomato plants, she found the ring, one of the plants having grown up through it, thereby encircling the plant, and raising the plant also raised the ring.

Mrs. Dr. E. M. Atwell was arrested in Naples Monday morning, charged with shooting at a little daughter of John Farley, with a pistol, loaded with a ball. The little girl was picking berries and got over the fence into Mrs. Atwell's premises. She was not hit, but was so frightened that she swooned, and was unconscious for fifteen minutes. Mrs. Farley was near and ran to assist her daughter, when the irate owner of the lot threatened to shoot her if she did not keep off her premises. The belligerent doctress was taken before Squire Lewis, in her bloomer costume, with sleeves rolled up, and topped with an old straw hat. She gave bail in $500 to keep the peace, and was discharged. She has been in a quarrel with the family for some years, and has used her shooting iron before.

Bristol Springs, N. Y. - A dangerous and, at the time, alarming casualty occurred here toward evening on Saturday. As. Mr. Scott Niece was engaged in drawing in grain, his foot slipped and he fell with his whole weight upon a sharp stake in the hay rigging, inflicting an ugly and severe wound in the fleshy part of his thigh, penetrating deeply and tearing the surface of the flesh badly. A physician was called, who sewed up and dressed the wound, and at last accounts the patient is doing well.

Gorham, N. Y. - Mr. Leonard Kisor while engaged in running a planing and matching machine at the Wilson Bros. mill, on Wednesday last, met with quite a severe accident.

Two young fellows from Canandaigua, James Clarkin and James Duffy, employed by Frank McNulty, to 'tend mason, got drunk on Sunday, and after driving a livery team nearly all day around town, and making some disturbance, left the rig standing in the street and  tvamoosedhe ranch, getting down to Canandaigua some way, leaving some unpaid bills behind them, to say nothing of an unsavory odor. On Monday they were brought back here by officer Johnson, by virtue of warrants issued by Esq. Lewis, and arraigned for drunkenness. Pleading guilty, they were sentenced to pay $6 and costs or 10 days in jail, and not having the money were escorted back to their lodgings. These young men had worked faithfully for ten days or more, and we are sorry their evil propensities got the start of them.

Accident at Gorham - About two years ago Wm. Hankinson, Jr., met with a serious misfortune in the loss of one hand while feeding a "corn husker."  On Wednesday last he was subjected to another accident which will probably entail the loss  by amputation of his other hand, thus crippling him as to labor for life.  While handling a loaded revolver the weapon prematurely discharged, shattering the bones and ligaments of his best hand, and injuring the other also.  The unfortunate young man is deservedly the object of universal sympathy by reason of these successive mishaps.

Accident - A large sleigh containing Mrs. S. P. Ottley, son and two daughters of Seneca Castle, and drawn by a large team of bay horses, came into town this morning.  The horses became frightened on Castle street, below the Maxwell office, and went towards Main street on a dead run.  Just before reaching the Universalist Church the rear "bob", so-called, struck a post at the side of the road and everybody went out.  Young Ottley, who was driving, hung to the lines' and was dragged a considerable distance on the ground.  The stop was so sudden that the horses were free in an instant and Mrs. Ottley struck the post with tremendous violence.  Another sleigh near by carried the injured lady to the residence of Mrs. Guilford, a relative on Geneva street.  Dr. Eddy was called, and it was found that the lady had received severe injuries.
