ANOTHER FATAL ACCIDENT IN YORK BAY

The schooner ANN JANE was upset in a heavy squall on Tuesday last, nearly opposite the Garrison in this Bay, with the crew and twelve passengers on board, and an emigrant named John Smith, a native of Ballylough Parish, Co. Down, Ireland, who was in the cabin when the accident occurred, was unfortunately drowned.

The others were all, with great difficulty, saved. Poor unfortunate Smith had been hunting up a future residence for his Wife and Family, in this Province, and was on his way home to bring them out, when this misfortune terminated his earthly cares. His body was found yesterday, with a number of sovereigns stitched in his clothes. This is the fourth life which has been lost in this way in your bay, within the last fortnight, and for ten or twelve years previous, we do not recollect to hear of any similar misfortune occurring in it. [Canadian Freeman]
