p.2 Death of the Second Engineer of the Inkerman - Notwithstanding every effort to alleviate the sufferings of Thomas Spence, the second engineer of the steamer Inkermann, we regret to learn, that he died of his injuries at an early hour yesterday morning at the City Hospital, thus making the tenth victim of this fatal catastrophe. Doheny, the first engineer, is so far recovered, that it is expected he will be enabled to leave the Hospital in the course of a few days. Capt. McBroom is getting on quite favorably, and is nearly convalescent. Messrs. Curie & Dickey have examined the machinery of the vessel, and will shortly present their report thereon to the coroner. It is stated that the Inkermann will be towed to Kingston by one of the Lake going steamers either this day or tomorrow. It is probable the jury won't reassemble until the close of the week, as Capt. Crysler, whose evidence is considered necessary, will not be in the city sooner than Friday. [Globe 23d]
