NARROW ESCAPE
On Saturday, some men were engaged in shunting a wagon,
containing 6 tons of coal, on to a siding of the railway, in Pitt
Street, when the wagon ran off the rails and fell into the yard
beneath, six feet below the level of the railway. It alighted on
a pig sty, from which Mr Christopher Alston of the Bay Horse
Inn, had emerged only an instant before, and killed a sow and 
five young pigs
