p.2 An Inquest was held yesterday by George Perkins Bull, Coroner, on the body of a person named Andrew Bryan or Breen, a native of Ireland, who was engaged on board the steam Propeller. It appears that the Propeller on passing the Bridge across the Des Jardins Canal, took a scow in tow on which the deceased was standing, which instantly sank, being leaky and laden with sand. The body was not recovered for about an hour. Verdict - accidentally drowned. [Hamilton Gazette]
