Sailor Drowned - The schooner M.T. Merrick arrived in the harbour on Sunday night from the Welland Canal. During Sunday, while coming down the lake, one of her hands, named William Spence, overbalanced himself and fell into the water, while hauling up a bucket. The schooner was at once put about, and a boat was lowered, but before it reached him, he sank and rose no more. The crew did all they possibly could to save him, but without avail. Spence was a new arrival from Dublin, and all his relatives are in Ireland.
