Kingston, Dec. 14th, 1847.

We regret to state that Captain Duffy, of the propeller Adventure lost his life very suddenly on Wednesday night. The Adventure was endeavoring to make the wharf at Youngstown, and Captain Duffy was upon deck, giving the necessary directions. It is presumed that he had gone to the side for the purpose of observation when the vessel, under the influence of a heavy gale, struck heavily on the wharf, and the concussion threw him overboard. The body was recovered in a very few minutes, but life was extinct, and it was found that in addition to a severe wound on the forehead, the right arm was broken in two or three places.
