Drowned - Off Wellington Square on Thursday week, whilst Perry Robinson, the mulatta cook, on board the schooner Elizabeth, was in the act of securing his hat, which had fallen overboard, he lost his balance, and was precipitated into the lake. The wind blowing fresh at the time, and Robinson being no swimmer, he was unable to regain the vessel and was consequently drowned. The only other person in charge of the schooner was a boy, who was unable to render efficient assistance in time. - Toronto Transcipt
