John Q. Murdock, engineer of the steam boat SUPERIOR, was drowned in Buffalo Creek yesterday. He had engaged to put up some machinery at the Rock, and after the SUPERIOR got under way he jumped into a boat, to return, which unfortunately capsized, and he sank. He was an excellent mechanic and an industrious man.
