ACCIDENT.--On Wednesday last Thomas Gatchell, of this village, narrowly escaped seriously wounding himself with a jack-knife with which he was cutting the binders of some grain at Mr. Wm. Fielding's, Fenelon, where a threshing machine was at work. Cutting towards, instead of from, himself, he at last applied too much force to the knife, and, after passing through the binder, the point of it penetrated his trousers and two shirts and entered his abdomen; but fortunately the wound was not a dangerous one, as the bowels were not quite, though very nearly, reached. He was able to be out next day, but of course will have to remain idle for a short time.
