Full Text

Rochester, April 30.--A Mr. Joseph Post, one of the sailors on board of the Schooner CLARISSA, of the Port of Genesee, was accidentally knocked overboard by the boom of the vessel, in a snow storm, on the morning of the 26 inst. while coming into port. The vessel was immediately hove to, and boards, planks, &c. were thrown overboard, but owing to it being dark, and in a violent snow squall, all efforts to save him were ineffectual. Mr. Post was about 20 years of age. His friends live, it is supposed, in the state of Ohio. Should they wish to learn any further particulars, they can write to Captain Perry, master of the above vessel, to the care of Mr. Hanford, of this village
