      Melancholy Accident - On Monday morning last, as the ferry boat from Long Island was coming across to this port, having eleven persons on board, the wind blowing a gale from the South-wet, the boat upset and two of the passengers, Nathaniel Shannon, of Long Island, and his wife, were unfortunately drowned. It would appear there were twenty-five bushels of wheat, in bags, on board, and upon the vessel being struck with a heavy sea the wheat was thrown with some force to one side, which, it is said, was a great cause of her capsizing. On the accident being observed from the harbour, the crews of some of the schooners manned their jolly boats & proceeded with rescuing nine of them from a watery grave, who were taken to Her Majesty's Dock Yar, where every attention that humanity could suggest was paid to them. Some of them suffered severely, but we are happy to learn that they are now in a state of convalescence. The body of Shannon had not yet been found - that of Mrs. Shannon, it is said, never sunk. An inquest was help uponin, on Monday at the Dock Yard, and a verdict accordingly.
    Notes 
    • Nathaniel and his family moved to Wolfe Island in the 1820s. Nathaniel and Polly both drowned when the ferry, Hiram and Mary, that plied the St. Lawrence River between Kingston and Wolfe Island capsized in a squall. The crew and passengers, 11 in number, were thrown into the water. All were rescued except Nathaniel and Polly. Polly's body was recovered, but Nathaniel's was found the following year.
