p.2 Accident - On Friday last, as the propeller Ireland was backing out from Sydenham harbor, a sailor, one of the hands on board, by name Thomas Linklighter, being at the wheel, was by some means knocked overboard and drowned. The body was not found until next day, when a coroner's jury returned a verdict of "accidentally drowned." There appears to have been no blame attached to any one. The deceased was entirely unknown.
