p.3 An inquest was held on the 19th instant, in the City Hall, before George Duggan, Esq. on the body of John Armstrong. It appeared, in evidence, he was a hand at work on board the Rose, of Kingston lying at Maitland's Wharf; he boarded in the city and was going on board, the night previous, about eleven o'clock, and fell off the wharf. A man on board the propeller lying at the wharf, who went to bed at ten o'clock, about eleven o'clock heard a splash in the water, and three groans; he got up, went on board the Rose, made inquiry got a light, and saw his cap in the water; they got grappling irons, and found him after a long search. He was a sober, steady man. Verdict Accidental Death. [Toronto Colonist]

Man Drowned - On the afternoon of Thursday last a man named James Armstrong, who was going on board one of the propellers lying at Gorrie's wharf, slipped off the plank on which he was walking from the wharf to the boat and was drowned before he was rescued. He was a man of respectability in his sphere and a shoemaker by trade, which he followed in the winter, and during the summer months was engaged on the lake. We have not heard the result of the Inquest or any further particulars than those we give. [Toronto paper]
