Description
Full Text

The Express learns by a passenger on board the steamer AMERICA that one of her hands was lost overboard, near Cleveland, on Friday. The engine was reversed and the life-boat launched in less than a minute, but all their effort could not save him. It speaks well for her commander and crew, to have things in readiness for such occasions. His name is John Manson and was from Canada.
