p.2 Fatal Boat Accident - sailboat upsets in harbor, 2 drown. [News]

-Fire at the Marine Railway - Between twelve and one o'clock on Sunday morning a fire broke out in the Marine Railway Company's Shipyard, and utterly consumed the building containing the engine and machinery for drawing up vessels. The engine was also used for sawing lumber, and for various other purposes. The property had passed from the hands of the Marine Railway Company into those of the Hon. Alex Campbell, and we believe is tolerably well insured. The damage done is very great, nothing being saved but the lower part of the Railway, and the large row of stone cottages in Ontario Street. How the fire originated no one knows, but there is no suspicion of incendiarism.
