p.1 One of the hands of the St. George, named Thos. McVie is suspected of having fallen into the water at Drummond's wharf, where that steamboat usually lies when in port, from the fact of his being missing, and the 2nd mate's having directed him to bring the vessel's jolly boat alongside. The hat of the man was shortly afterwards found floating on the water, and the boat observed floating down stream. The body has not been found.
