p.3 Fatal Accident - On Wednesday the 17th inst. two men, named Wm. Foster and ___ M'Donell, were drowned in Burlington Bay. They were on board a vessel belonging to Mr. Wm. Chisholm, of Nelson, and put out in a boat, with several others, to go on shore, when the boat, owing to the roughness of the Bay, and un unskilful helmsman, upset, and the unfortunate Foster and M'Donell sunk to rise no more. They have both left large families to deplore their untimely end. The body of Foster was found the next day - that of M'Donell was missing when our informant wrote to us. The others saved themselves, some by clinging to the boat till aid reached them - others by swimming to the piers of the Canal. [Canadian Freeman]
