DROWNED. - Captain Edward Follett of the schooner GENERAL HARRISON,
was drowned yesterday; when about midway between Dunkirk and Barcelona a gale
of wind struck his vessel and in endeavoring to put about, the Captain was knocked
overboard by the foresheet. This calamity will be a great affliction to his friends, of
whom he had many in Buffalo. We understand he leaves a wife and several small
children, and his residence was at or near Lockport.
