Serious Disaster - By private intelligence from Port Credit, we learn that a most distressing accident occurred on the lake, about 3 miles out from Port Credit, on Thursday morning last.

It seems that the schooner Rover, Hinds, master, sailed from Toronto on Wednesday last, with a cargo of salt, for Port de Louisa (Port Dalhousie ?), and having on board besides the master, his wife and child, and a man and a boy. By some accident the schooner went down, and we regret to learn that but the master met a watery grave.

The body of the woman had been found, and a coroner's inquest was about being held on it, but to the time of our information the other bodies had not been found. [Globe]
