Goldfields Involvement, 1854
On Friday night the Camp Surgeon
and Dr. A. Carr had a narrow escape
from being shot ; owing to some blunder,
while the former gentleman was going
into the Hospital he was fired on by
one of the sentries. How this happened
I do not know; the ball barely missed
him, went through the wooden wall of
the hospital, through the lid of the me
dicine chest, which was open at the
time. and passed close to the shoulder of
Dr. Carr, who was reading in the hospi
tal; some. splinters from the lid of the
chest struck Dr. Carr on the side.
The "Criterion" conveyance brought
up the papers, on Saturday, under six
hours; some of them were delivered
before half-past Twelve.Cite error: Closing
