Full Text

ACCIDENT.--A small trading schooner, called the CELESTE, went ashore at Barcelona on Sunday last. In an attempt by the captain to jump on shore, he missed his footing and fell against the rocks, receiving such injuries as to cause his death shortly after. The vessel had been under control of Capt. Stearns, but the person who last cleared her from this port was J. F. Smith; which of the two is the person killed, our informant could not say. ---- Buffalo Com. Adv.
