Frightful Accident.
A MAN named Richard Cross, in the employ-
ment of the A. A. Company, met with a very
serious accident yesterday, at about noon.
Smith were conveying disconnected portions
of some coal waggons on a trolly drawn by
three horses up a steep roadway leading from
the A A. Company's office to the bridge
which crosses BIane-street. They started the
horses cantering up the road, and the trolly,
on account of the fast pace they were going,
capsized and threw the men off The frame
of a waggon, weighing about 35 cwt., fell on
to Cross' legs, inflicting a slight abrasion of
the skin on the left ankle and a most severe
wound on his right leg. The wound started
just above the knee joint, and the flesh was
drawn down over the knee and nearly to the
ankle, as though it had been a stocking. Dr
S. T. Knaggs was immediately in attendance,
and did all in his power to make the poor
fellow comfortable, and then ordered his im-
mediate removal to the Hospital On arriv-
ing there (being taken up on a dray) Dr.
Knaggs and Dr. Walker dressed and sewed
the wound, which was found to be so exten-
sive that a man's hand could be passed down
between the bone and the flesh from Cross'
knee to his ankle. He bore the dressing re-
markabiy well, and is in good spirits. Dr.
Knaggs does not apprehend any immediate
danger from the wound unless lockjaw sets

It is with deep regret that we announce the
decease of Robert Corbett Knaggs, Esq.,
Member of the Royal College of Surgeons,
London, and Licentiate of the Society of
Apothecaries, Ireland, which occurred at
his late residence, Maibenville House,
Laman-street, yesterday afternoon.
Dr Knaggs had been ailing for the
past six or eight months, and for some
time serious apprehensions were enter-
tained as to the state of his health,

age, having been born in January, 1809.
Twenty-two years of his life he spent in
