p.2 Fatal Accident On the Clyde - The present season has been prolific of serious accidents on our lake boats, no less than four, resulting in death, having been already reported. We have now to record another, which occurred on the steamer Clyde between here and Montreal. On her downward trip - somewhat below Prescott we learn - the steampipe exploded, severely scalding three of the deck hands, one of whom, John Cummins, has since died from internal injuries inflicted by the hot vapor.

Yet Another - On Sunday afternoon a lad employed on the str. Magnet fell into the river and was drowned while attempting to jump from the boat to the wharf at Montreal. Louis Laurin, the deceased, leaves a widowed mother whom he assisted to support.

p.3 Arrivals - 11,12.

ad - Royal Mail Through Line - str. Passport, Captain Harbottle, for Montreal.
