A Lake Captain Drowned -- Many residents of Oswego will remember, and be interested in Captain James Hardison formerly of this city, and who sailed a vessel from this port. Of late he has been commander and part owner of the schooner Pandora, of Port Colborne, which was en-route to Georgian Bay to Michigan City with a cargo of lumber. The first officer of the vessel reports that while of Cabot’s Head. Saturday, when in the act of jibing the mainsail, the main boom struck the captain, knocking him overboard, and notwithstanding every possible exertion was made toward his rescue, he sank almost immediately.

The deceased was widely known on the lakes, was about forty-three years of age, and leaves a wife and five children at Port Colborne, where he resides.
