Full Text

DROWNED.---A hand by the name of Campbell on board the schooner ALVIN BRONSON,
of Oswego, fell from the bow of that vessel, as she was approaching our wharf yesterday morning, sunk immediately, and was drowned. We understand that he shipped on the BRONSON at Kingston, C.W. about a month since. The flags of the shipping in port and the Bethel flag were displayed at half mast yesterday, for the poor fellow.----------Toledo Blade
