Description
Full Text

As the Steamboat MADISON was passing down from Detroit on Saturday last, when opposite this town, a hand who was employed in placing the gang-way rail, lost his balance and fell overboard, and coming in contact with the paddles, it is supposed was immediately killed, as he was not afterwards seen, notwithstanding the small boat was lowered with the greatest despatch and diligent search made. The unfortunate man was seen to fall by several persons on this shore.
