p.2 We learn from the Sackett's Harbor Observer the following particulars in relation to the death of Capt. Joseph Marks, of the Schooner Jas. Harbridge:- He became entangled in the rigging of his vessel while passing the locks of the Welland Canal, and caught between the vessel and the timbers of the lock. He lived some two or three days after submitting to an amputation.

Captain Marks, we believe, was a respectable and worthy man, and has left a family who resides in Dexter. The colors of several of the vessels in port were at half-mast yesterday in token of respect.
