Coroner's Inquest - On Tuesday the 29th inst. Mr. Coroner Wood was called to hold an inquest over the body of a lad named Phillip Murphy, belonging to a schooner lying at Port Dalhousie, loading with timber. It appears he was sculling a boat to the vessel when, it is supposed, the ore slipped out of the notch, which caused him to lose his balance and he fell overboard. Verdict of the jury - "Accidentally drowned in the Welland Canal."
