p.86 The body of George Heathers, employed on board of a Durham Boat belonging to Mr. Davies, on the Island, drowned 1lth May last, was found on Wednesday last, on the Pittsburgh shore. - Verdict of the Coroner's Jury, "accidentally drowned."

p.87 Government House - College, etc. - Mr. Barber, ship carpenter, of this place, has contracted to build two Sloops, for the purpose of carrying over stone and lime for Mr. Priestman, who we understand, has contracted to build a College and Government House, at York. It appears, from a hand-bill we have seen of Mr. Priestman's that the buildings are to be of brick and stone foundations, and cut stone for the corners, window and door cases. Mr. B. has commenced getting out lumber and making other preparations, to build said vessels, on the beach in this town. From this it will appear that there is no intention of removing the Seat of Government from York, as has been suggested by some of the Kingston journals.
