p.2 Fatal Accident - Mr. George Curry, Steward of the Steam Boat Kingston, was unfortunately drowned last Friday evening, about 8 miles above Bath. He was drawing a bucket of water for a boy, when the gangway bar gave way, not being properly fastened, and he fell into the water. He attempted to grasp the side of the boat, but could not succeed. Steam was let off, and a small boat lowered; but the vessel had shot so far ahead, that before the boat reached Curry he was sinking. One of the men rowing the boat put out an oar thinking to reach him, he made an effort to grasp the oar, just touched it, and sank. He was a fine young man, formerly a bandsman in the 79th Reg't., and his melancholy fate is deeply lamented by his acquaintance.
