Full Text

On the 16th. inst. a Boat going down the river, between Queenstown and Niagara, loaded with stones, suddenly opened and went to the bottom, and shocking to relate, all the hands on board, three in number, perished, before any assistance could be procured.
From the information we have received, it appears the names of those who were drowned, are one Brown, a laboring man of Queenstown,---the Widow Adam's son, of Stamford, and a mulatta boy, belonging to Mr. James Secord, of Queenstown.
