Full Text

George Leadford, formerly mate of the ill-fated schr. HARVEST QUEEN, over whose sinking so much litigation has arisen, denies the statement of the sailor Scott, alias Murdock, that the vessel was deliberately allowed to sink. Leadford made his statement before the American Counsel at Kingston, and it is said in the Kingston Whig that "he has received offers from the insurance companies of large sums of money if he would sustain the defendants in the present action, but to a Canadian, truth is right and must prevail, and the offer of bribes had no effect."
