p.2 Capt. Robert Gaskin - This gentleman, whose bereavement of wife, sister, nephew and niece by the late sad accident, has rendered him more especially an object of deep commiseration, called at this office yesterday, to desire us to record his sense of the sympathy exhibited by the inhabitants of Kingston generally towards him and his; and more particularly to make mention of the kindness of Capt. Kilby, of the U.S. steamer Niagara, and that of his chief officer, Mr. Easten, in coming out of the vessel's course to bring him down the lake and land him at Kingston, to be in time for the funeral of his lamented wife. This extreme attention, he desires us to state, he will bear in mind to his dying day.
