p.2 We regret to learn that during the gale on Monday night last, a boat belonging to Alexander Reid, of this town, was upset near Point Frederick. She was loaded with cordwood at the time, with five hands on board, three of whom got off in the small boat. A son of Mr. Reid, a boy of 10 years of age, and one of the hands were left clinging to the rigging of the vessel, and remained in that perilous situation for the space of three hours before assistance could reach them. The boat, which is a complete wreck, was the only support of Mr. Reid, (who is a worthy and industrious man,) and his small family. [Chronicle]
