p.3 A melancholy accident took place on board the steamboat Highlander, on Friday evening last, while on her trip from Coteau du Lac to Kingston. The second engineer having gone below for the purpose of clearing some sand which had entered one of the pumps, called on the fireman, Louis St. Jocque to hand him a wrench; in doing so he placed one foot on the second deck, and the other on a step of a small ladder, which reached from the second deck, to the bottom of the boat, where the second engineer was employed. While in this position the boat was reversed, and the sliding shaft of the engine pierced his body from beneath his left arm pit. He uttered neither word nor groan; but was called instantly before his Maker. The next morning (Saturday) his body was brought ashore at Cornwall, and a Coroner's inquest held, which passed a verdict of "Accidental Death." After the verdict was given, the body was placed in a coffin and conveyed back to Coteau du Lac, where his family resides. The passengers on board the boat liberally subscribed twenty-five dollars for his wife, who, very remarkably, was delivered of a child, at Coteau du Lac, on the same day and hour that her husband met his sudden death.
