Full Text

The new schooner James Navagh has met with a sad accident on her first trip, occasioning the death of the first mate, Mr. George Livermore. It seems that while hoisting the yawl boat on deck, preparatory to passing the canal locks, some portion of the tackle gave way, but we have not learned the particulars. Mr. Livermore was a young man of generous qualities and an accomplished sailor. He resided at Sacketts Harbor, where he leaves an aged mother, dependent mainly upon him for support. - Oswego Pal., 11th.
