Melancholy Accident - The schooner Humber, of York, arrived this morning, and the owner states that yesterday the Captain, Moffat, and one of the crew, a Mitchell, were drowned off Hog Island, while in the act of bringing a boat load of ballast from the shore to the vessel. Their bodies have not yet been found. [Herald]
