p.2 The Late Mate of the Bowmanville - The body of the late Mate of the steamer Bowmanville, Nathaniel Montgomery, who was drowned in the bay at Hamilton on Friday last, had not been recovered up to Saturday night. We learn that the deceased has left a wife and seven children in Kingston.

Shocking Accident - Information has been received here of a terrible accident on board the steamer Protection, on her upward trip, between Toronto and Hamilton. On Friday morning, the second engineer, a Lower Canadian, went into the engine room to oil the engine; and shortly after he had gone to work he became entangled in the machinery, and in a few moments was cut up into fragments, his body, when extricated, presenting a shocking appearance. This, we believe, is the fourth fatal accident that has occurred on boats between Kingston and Hamilton.

Cleveland, May 9th - The prop Tioga burst her boiler outside the harbor this morning. One person was killed and several wounded.
