DEATH OF CAPT. ORR - the accident which Capt. Orr met with at Owen Sound as stated in the Bulletin last week, proved fatal on Thursday morning. The body was taken possession of by the Masons of Owen Sound, and it was brought down here on Thursday night by the Collingwood lodge on the tug Mary Ann. The funeral took place on Saturday, with Masonic honours .There were 35 conveyances in the procession, and a large number of people. The Northern Railway company very generously gave a free passage to any one who wished to be present and quite a number of Masons and others arrived by noon train. Rev. Dr, Lett read the burial service of the Episcopal church. All the principal places of business were closed during the obsequies, and the vessels in the harbour hung their flags at half mast. Capt. Orr leaves a wife and child, for whom much sympathy is felt. Capt. Parsons has engaged to run the Cumberland for the remainder of the season.
