A serious mishap

A Serious Mishap.—The Mintaro correspondent of the Northern Argus, writing on the 5th inst., says—”An accident occurred yesterday afternoon to a young man named McDonald, who I believe is a telegraph operator at Manoora. He left Sevenhills in company with two others. Going down Trilling’s Hill his horse bolted, and the girths being loose the saddle shifted forward. The rider was thrown on his head and rendered insensible. One of his companions immediately started for Mintaro for Dr. Parker, who returned with him to the scene of the accident. The sufferer was then conveyed to Mintaro. At a late hour last night he had not recovered consciousness, and on making enquiries this morning I was informed that he is still insensible. The case looks serious.”
