p.70 We regret to announce an accident which happened yesterday morning on board the Sir James Kempt steam boat, on her way up. A Fireman, during the night, having occasion to draw up, as is supposed, a bucket of water, unfortunately fell overboard; and though every assistance was promptly afforded, unfortunately sunk. His name was O'Brien. He has left a wife and large family to deplore his premature end. [Chronicle July 4th]
We are informed, and it is lamentable to add, that the unfortunate man had drank too freely of ardent spirits through the day, and took his last glass but a few moments before he was called into eternity!
