SERIOUS ACCIDENT.--We are sorry to report that an accident
of a very serious nature occurred a few days ago in a flax mill
belonging to Mr. James KILPATRICK, of Ballylane, in the
neighbourhood of Markethill. A young man named HUTTON, who
was employed attending the steam engine, by some oversight,
allowed his arm to come in contact with the handles, when the
member was actually severed from the body, a few inches
below the shoulder. The sufferer was immediately conveyed to
the county infirmary, where he was promptly attended to by
Dr. ROBINSON, who after carefully examining the injury,
decided that excision of the shoulder joint was absolutely necessary.
This difficult operation was speedily performed by that
accomplished surgeon, with his usual skill, and we are happy
to learn that the patient is now in a fair way of recovery.
