Death of an old Lake Captain.

We learn by letter that Captain George Eason died at a point fifty miles up the Pamunkey river, in Virginia, September 28th. It is understood that he was at the time engaged in the oyster business. Captain Eason was at one time one of the best known sailors on the lakes, having for many years commanded vessels out of this port.

He was for many years in the "Black Ball" line of Penfield, Lyon & Co., and was known as a careful man and a competent seaman. During the past six or eight years he was engaged in wrecking, and for some time was in the employ of the New York Coast Wrecking Company. he was known as a quiet, unassuming man, with many kind traits and a warm heart. He leaves a sister who resides in this city, in the homestead, on East Ninth street, between Mitchell and VanBuren streets.
