A melancholy accident occurred on board the schooner Edith, on her trip down from Whitby, on Saturday night last. A man of the name of William Thompson, a native of Plymouth, England, was knocked overboard by the main boom; but the night was so very stormy and dark, no assistance could be rendered him. He had lately come up to Kingston from Quebec.
