Death of Mr. J.J.B. Jones - We regret to have to announce the death of Mr. J.J. Birkett Jones, of the firm of Jones & Miller, forwarders, of this city, which took place suddenly on Saturday night at Brockville, where he had gone to reside with his family for the winter. Mr. Jones has been connected with the forwarding trade for between 30 and 40 years, of which nearly 25 has been spent during the season at Kingston. He leaves a widow and three children - two daughters and one son - to mourn his sudden loss. We have not heard the particulars of his death, but we suspect that the primary cause was apoplexy, as Mr. Jones was of full habit, and appeared to have a tendency in that way. Messrs. J.D. Thompson, James Swift, A. Macpherson and H. Folger left this afternoon to attend the funeral. Socially Mr. Jones was a very genial gentleman. Politically he was a staunch Reformer, and always took a great interest in the doings of his Party.
p.3 Buffalo, Nov. 22nd - The body of Capt. John Laren, of the schr. Itasca, who has been missing since Oct. 31st, was found in the creek at the foot of Main St. this morning. Thought to be accidental.
