COBB’S COACH, will leave JOHNSON’S Melbourne Hotel, for Hokitika

Formation of Company, Stoney Lead.

Mrs GOFF, the landlady of the Victoria hotel, who met with an accident on the same day, by being thrown from her horse while returning from the Hoki to the Grey, is also recovering from her injuries, which fortunately are not so serious as was first supposed.

The Nelson papers report the sudden death of Mr James COOK, of Riwaka, one of the oldest and first settlers in this province. He came out on the preliminary expedition in the "Will Watch", which sailed from Gravesend on 27 April, 1841. and entered the harbour of Nelson on Nov. 3. of the same year.





A sad accident happened on Sunday last to a young lady, engaged in the capacity of governess to the family of Mark SPROT esq. of Hokitika. It appears that while riding with some friends on the Christchurch road between 4 and 5 o’clock on Saturday afternoon her horse ran away with her. Finding she had no control over the horse and probably losing her presence of mind she attempted to throw herself out of the saddle, but her right leg was caught at the ankle, by the horn. and in this condition she was dragged for some short distance. immediately on the patient arriving in town she was attended to by Dr. BESWICK, who after consultation with Dr. RYLEY, had her removed yesterday to a private room at the Hospital. She was found to have sustained a compound dislocation of the ankle joint, with fracture of one of the bones of the leg. An attempt is being made to save the limb, under the new method of treatment, by carbolic acid, which is thought will be successful, although under the old method of treatment, amputation would have been necessary at once, as affording the only reasonable chance of saving the patients life.

Mr MIDDLETON, who so seriously escaped a watery grave yesterday at the Teremakau, we are glad to learn, beyond a little stiffness, has quite recovered from the effects of an accident which so seriously threatened his life.
