About 7 o’clock yesterday morning two men named respectively Joseph Roy and J.B. Trudeau, the foremen of Drolet & Co., quarrelled near the Wellington basin on the canal and a fight ensued. Trudeau, in the course of the affray, aimed a blow at Roy’s head, when he missed him, and, losing his balance, fell into the canal. He was rescued by the men of Bateau No. 2.
