of Margaret McShane, daughter of jas. Mc-
Shane, who reaides on Webster street near
High, in the Third Ward.. It appears that.
the child, which was about one year old;
was sick with measles, and was attended by
Dr: icAleal, who had givens prescription
which was filled nt Able's drug store, cor
ner of Grant and Fifth street. and 'on -Sat

the drug store to have the bottle refilled:
The number of the prescriptien 6,513. ; was
on the label upon the bottle, And the drug
gist it appears made a miskake and filled
prescription No. 6,413 instead, which was a
solution of Morphine. The medicine was
Inot administered until about eleven o'clock
Sunday morning, and at ten °clock in the
evening the child, died.: Coroner Clawson

shelf and tilled the vial and gave it. to,me ;
I then asked for some gum arable, and
while he was getting it thought he made a
mistake in taking all the medicine from one
jar; thought of askitg liim; but a• lady

the late Will A. Late, Esq., led - off in

Serious Railroad Accident
A serious accident occurred about eleven
o'clock yesterday, at the yard of the Pitts
burgh National Coal Company, on Try
street, between Third and Fourth, by which
David. Flavin, a brakeman, employed by
the company, had his left leg ernshea so
badly that it will have to be amputated,
and also received serious internal Injuries.
A train was bucking into the yard, with a
number of coal cars in front of which there
were several open freight ears. Flavin
was' staffding en the bumper of the front
coal car next to the freight car ready to cat
the coal cars loose as soon as they had
been run into the yard. When the rear
car struck the bumper, he signaled the en
gineer to stop, but his signal r for some
cause , was not heeded, and the engineer
continued to back the train. The roar car
being against the buMper, the tmin could
get •no further back, and the consequence
was'.,hat the end of the freight car and
the Omit coal car upon .which, .the brake
man was standing, were raised up, and at
length the coal car dropped, letting the end
of the - freight car fall ,-ou the platform,
catching the Mg of 'the breakfnan and
crushing it in the manner described.
Drs. Sutton, Smith and Thomas were
called in, and rendered all the assistance
required, after which the injured man was
removed to Mercy Hospital. The Doctors
say the limb will have to be amputated, but
the:mictration cannot -be perlbrmed
the extent of his internal injuries' are as
certained. This is the third accident which
has occurred at this place within a year.
One matt was killed about ten months
since and some six weeks after another had
his leg broken - and has not been able to
work since. The Coal Company have been
very generous, however, and paid the
wages of the injured man ever since he
was hurt, and they propose M.& the same
in the present case; but have notified the
Railroad Company that they would bold
them responsible for the accident.
It is alleged by the agent of the Coal
Company that the accident was the result
of carelessness on the, part of the eondue

The Late Sculling ; Rage:--A. Card from
Harry Coulter.
A Philadelphia paper of Saturday con
tains the following curd :
. .
Mn. Entront—As one of the principals
in the late sculling match for the charn
pionship of the American waters, it is due
to myself and the public that a few words
of explanation should be given.' Enthe
Match on the 18th inst., a ft er the start', I
led Hamill'nearly a boat length, when he.
to the disgust of oven i some of his friemls,
pulled into and "fouled" me. I was in My
own course when he pulled into me, and as
the boats came together he caught hold of
my outrigger, witen,n my e ff orts to sap
arateithe boats in ozd r to have a fair race,
both Of us were preci itated into the water.
I then turned my t up,, got into her,
and asked Hamill to do the same, and pot
disapPoint those who had come to witness
.the match. He 'refused. I then pulled
over the course and claimed the race.
In accordance with the decision of Stephen
Roberts, an old and honorable boatman, in
the matoh between Hamill and Brown, at
Newburg, N. Y., I was fairly entitled .to
tho championship and stakes. He (Roberts)
decided that as, Ifarnill was in the lead at
Newburg, at the time of the alleged fen],
.he,was entitled to the-rate. No one who
saw the race on the 18th instant, will deny
that I was in the lead, and that the foul was
intentional_ on the part of Hamill, whom I
charge with being' afraid to' row me a fair .
'and honorable race.; To-day; in order to
satisfy a referee whose decision was partial
in the' extreme, and to show that I meant
business and desired to win upon my own:
merits, I consented; -against the whams of
my friends, to row the race again. - It seem
ed, however, that fate as well as foul play
was against me, for at the third stroke my
oar snapped in two.
Mr. Charles Elliott, one of the judges
called Hamill back to makea fresh ;start;
but Mr. White, the referee, called out to
Hanna to go on. Mr. Elliott appealed to
him to call Hamill baCk, especially as my
friends had waived their claim on the day
previous for the purpose ofdeciding which
was the, better man. At the time of the
breaking of my oar, we had not'fairly start
ed, and 'were not more than two or three
'boat-lengths from the starting point. If
there had been a particle of honor in the
man who acted as referee, he would have
ordered us back to make afresh start. -
I have made the above statement for the
purpose of placing myself fairly before the
boatmen and citizens of 'Philadelphia, to
whom I desire to return my thanks for
many kind favors during my stay. I will'
say, in conclusion, that I stand ready to '
row Mr. Hamill, or any other man, for any ,
amount he may be pleased to name, and at
any time ho chooses.. H. couvrxn, .
Champion of America.
