p.2 The Cobourg Star says, on Friday evening last, while the passengers were landing from the steamer Arabian on her trip from Toronto down the lake, a woman walked off the gang-board in landing, with a child about eighteen months old in her arms, and both were drowned. The body of the woman was found about two hours after the accident, but the child has not yet been found. She was accompanied by her husband and five children. The man's name is John Lennon, brother-in-law to Mr. Mitchell of Cobourg, and was moving from the West to Lower Canada. [Cobourg Star]
