Niagara Assizes - ....Among the charges is one against the officers of the Commerce and Despatch steamers, the collision between which in Lake Erie, last summer, was the cause of the loss of several lives. Mr. Justice McLean told the jury that if from the evidence it appeared there had been gross neglect on the part of those in authority on board of the boats, it would be their duty to bring in a bill for manslaughter or even murder. His lordship repeated what was the law on the subject, and which has lately been exemplified in the case of the officers of the Orion in Scotland - viz.: that those who command vessels are responsible for all accidents to passengers, whenever they could have been prevented by ordinary care and skill.
