Melancholy Occurrence. - On Thursday last, while seven semen, mostly belonging to the crew of the Schooner Emily, then lying in our harbor, were passing from one of our wharves to the Emily in a jolly boat, as they were going through the gap near the mouth of the river, the boat was accidentally upset and two of the men, Joseph Boo, master of the Emily, and Isaac Hull Peeler, a seaman belonging to the crew of the Winnebago, were drowned. Capt. Booth has left a family to lament his sudden death, and Mr. Peeler, a mother, widow of the late Capt. King, whose lot we understand it has been to mourn the loss of two husbands and two sons, who have all found a watery grave.
