p.3 Melancholy Accident - The Steam boat Union arrived at the Cataraqui Bridge about 11 o'clock on Sunday night, from By Town, and a respectable emigrant, named Charles Bunce, while walking from the boat to the bridge, fell from the plank, struck his head against one of the stone piers and immediately sunk to rise no more. By this fatal accident a widow and 5 small children have been derived of their only means of support...We cannot dismiss this subject without expressing our regret that the proprietors of Cataraqui Bridge should so long neglect to put the draw-bridge in such a state as to allow vessels and steam vessels to pass and repass without difficulty. Captains of steam boats, also, should provide good and sufficient landing boards for their respective vessels, which would be the means of saving many valuable lives.
