It is said that one of the engineers was scalded to death. The passengers all got off safe. The N.T. Co.'s prop. CLEVELAND was trying to assist her, but could do nothing. The tug was above the lock at the time, but was got down as soon as possible, and towed her into the harbor. The man scalded was one Levi Lemon, of Sackett's Harbor, N.Y. He was intoxicated at the time of the bursting of the safety valve, having come on board at the Port, and was near the
engine. An inquest was held on the remains by Dr. Considine, Coroner, and a verdict of accidental death returned. The CITY OF NEW YORK is now on Shickluna's drydock here.
