A Painful Injury.

A colored man was brought to the Alms-House in this town, on Monday last, whose foot had on that day been torn from his leg, at or near Williamsport. We could not obtain a correct account of the accident, but we believe the man was working about a Canal Boat, and his foot becoming entangled in one of the ropes, was twisted off in a shocking manner.
