     We regret to learn that Mr. John Brooks, the well known butcher, met with a severe accident yesterday.  It appears that Mr. B. was feeding meat into a sausage machine, when, by some mishap, his hand got under the knives, which severed the third and fourth fingers of his right hand.  Medical aid was at once procured, and the physicians state that beyond the loss of the two fingers, Mr. B. will suffer no injury.
