A GENEROUS ACT. - Last week the young son of R. H. Armstrong, engineer of the tug Wm. Livingstone, Jr., was taken with serious illness. The owner of the tug, Wm. Livingstone, Jr., of this city, felt anxious that the father should see his boy while sick, especially as he was an only son, and the father having previously lost two boys, each time when away on his boat. Mr. L. accordingly used the telegraph liberally to discover the whereabouts of the tug, and having done so had an engineer ready to take the place of Mr. Armstrong as the tug and tow passed this port on Thursday afternoon. Mr. A. went to his home none too soon, for his son, aged eight years, died the next morning. The father has the sympathy of many friends in his extreme affliction, while the exhibition of thoughtful generosity on the part of Mr. Livingstone is worthy of record.
