1835 BRITISH WHIG

(from microfilm available at Kingston Frontenac Public Library and Queen's University - Stauffer Library, unless otherwise noted)

p.2 On Wednesday morning last, Mr. Scanlan's schooner, the Lord Nelson, was seen off Kingston Harbor, near Four Mile Point, locked in the ice. As it was known, that her enterprising owner was on board, one or two small parties went out to her assistance; but the ice proving weak so far out, we regret to mention that two young men, Mr. Payne and Mr. T. Baker, were immersed underwater, the former very narrowly escaping death. Yesterday great exertions were made to cut her into Hatter's Bay, the nighest place of shelter, and she was brought within half a mile of the shore with every probability of securing her today. We are sorry to add, that while endeavoring to bring his vessel into a harbor, Mr. Scanlon had the misfortune to slip down and fracture his collar bone; he is however doing well. The Nelson left Toronto on the Wednesday previous with a load of Flour for Kingston, and met with much ice on the Lake. There was not so much alacrity displayed in assisting the vessel as we could have wished to have seen.
