Full Text


The Brockville Recorder supplies the following interesting facts: - "Capt. Rob't Jeffery, of the schooner Emu, reports that on Wednesday at 4 p.m., when in mid lake, nearly opposite Cobourg, he picked up a small boat in a disabled condition, the sails having been blown to pieces. In the boat was a man who gave his name as Garrison Terry. He reports that he left Wellington on Sunday for Kingston, having on board five half barrels of salt fish, one of which he had opened and attempted to eat. He had partaken of no food for three days, and when found was so exhausted that he could not bring his boat alongside. He was taken on board and kindly cared for. Yesterday he was landed at Cape Vincent, and having repaired his sails, left again for Kingston. The captain reports that the man was affected with St. Vitus' dance."
