THE ACCIDENT ON BOARD THE DEBONAIR

We regret to learn that PETER MARWICK, the man who succeeded in bringing the DEBONAIR to Ardrossan, is now suffering from the effects of his great exertions, and is confined to the house with an attack of erysipelas.

In addition to the offer of assistance which Marwick rejected he states that another steamer (a screw) bound to Greenock came alongside and demanded the DEBONAIR hawser, in order to tow her to Greenock. Marwick offered to give the hawser on condition that he was towed to Ardrossan, but this the steamer declined, and Marwick remained firm to his demand.

The captain of the screw then intimated that he was about to leave him, but would give him whatever men he required to assist; but Marwick replied that as he had come this far he would accomplish the rest of the distance without assistance.
