Fourth of July Circa 1850

FOURTH OF JULY.

No paper will be issued from the office of the Sanduskian. We hope all who love their country well enjoy this glorious anniversary, and that no one will get drunk or be blown up.

FOURTH OF JULY ACCIDENTS.

We are informed that two men had both hands blown off by the premature discharge of a cannon at Detroit yesterday. One of the boys from our office saw one of the men in this condition, and heard of the other.

We heard that a connon burst at Bellevue, but without injuring any one.
There was some drunkenness here last night, and some fighting; but whether these irregularities were accidental or premeditated, we are unable to say. —

It is a very improper time, when the heat is at 91, as we are informed was the case yesterday, to engage in either drinking or fighting, and if sickness follows such kind of amusement, it will not all surprise us.
