p.2 Boat Sunk - The Watertown Despatch has the particulars of a very sad accident which took place on the St. Lawrence. Last Wednesday a scow, heavily loaded with wood, under the management of Joseph Edgerly, sank off the head of Grenadier Island, about 8 miles below Alexandria Bay. There was attached to the scow by a tow line a skiff, in which was the son of Mr. Edgerly, a lad of 10 years. As the scow sank the skiff was taken down with it, together with the boy, who became entangled and was drowned. In the father's efforts to rescue him he completely tore a sleeve off the boy's coat from the body. Mr. Edgerly was however, able to get the skiff loose, and thereby saved his own life.
