Since my last report Mr. Osburn Shaw has passed over the river. He met with an accident that caused his death. His hand was caught in his cotton gin and so badly torn that amputation was necessary, which was successfully performed by Drs. Calhoun, Jones and Bradley, but as he was a man advance in years his nervous system gave way and he died next morning after the operation.

Caught in a Gin.

On Tuesday evening at Kingston Mr. Osburn Shaw got his arm caught in his gin, and it was so badly lacerated that amputation was necessary.

Dr. F. R. Calhoun, of this city, was sent for and with the assistance of the local physician performed the operation.

Mr. Osborn lived about seven hours after his arm was amputated when he died from heart-failure. He was about sixty-three years old.
