p.2 Loss of the Inkermann - Further Particulars - The further particulars of this lamentable accident given below, are abridged from the Toronto Globe. Sincerely do we condole with those persons in this city and elsewhere who have to lament the loss of friends by the untimely occurrence. It will be seen that the old story of letting cold water suddenly into a heated boiler is suspected to have been the cause of the accident. When will the lessons taught by bitter experience be made the means of preventing the repetition of such fearful scenes as these? (balance of story is same as News of June 1st)

-An Act to enable the Municipal Council for the township of Stanley to construct a Harbor at the entrance of the River Bayfield into the Lake Huron.
