Died at the Victoria hotel, Victoria, Vancouver Island, Sep 21, 1864, Henry Menge, aged 35, native of Hanover, Germany, from the accidental discharge of a gun. Funeral from Victoria Hotel. Deceased was a returned Cariboo miner who had recently bought a share in a ranch on Pender Island, and he had started for Victoria with his partner, in a canoe, intending to make some purchases. When near St James Island, he caught hold of his gun to shoot at some ducks, when it accidentally went off, frightfully lacerating his arm from the wrist up. He was at once conveyed to Victoria, brought to the Victoria Hotel, and waited on by John Costello, who is on hand at every accident, and who made (he assures us) every effort to obtain medical assistance, but for a long time without avail. When at last Dr Turner was brought, it was too late, the poor man having lost so much blood that he died shortly after his arrival. Inquest - Sep 23, 3; Sep 24, 3 - detailed. [Colonist, 1864-09-21*]

Died at Victoria, Vancouver Island, Feb 4, 1865, Cecilia, Wife of Dr J S Helmcken, Esq, and eldest Daughter of Sir James Douglas, KCB. We deeply regret to announce the death of Mrs Helmcken, Wife of Honorable the Speaker of Legislative Assembly. Deceased lady suffered for some days from a severe attack of inflammation of the lungs and expired Feb 4, 1865. She was the eldest Daughter of Sir James Douglas, and leaves a large circle of relatives and friends in both colonies by whom her loss will be severely felt. Sincere sympathy of the entire community is with the bereaved husband and family who have thus suddenly been deprived of their dearest friend. On Sun next Christ Church will be hung with mourning, in memory of the late Mrs Helmcken, a mark of respect to the family of Sir James Douglas who have attended service there regularly since the erection of the building, as also to the worthy Rector, in whose family the had of death has made sad havoc. Funeral � The burial of this estimable and deeply lamented lady took place yesterday. From an early hour in the morning flags in all parts of the city were displayed at halfmast, and as the hour approached crowds of sympathizing friends, among whom were His Excellency the Governor, ML's, Officers of the Navy, &c, took their way to Christ Church. At 3 o'clock the mournful procession was observed approaching from Dr Helmcken's residence, and soon it reached the church, when the coffin was borne into the edifice, preceded by Rev A C Garrett, Archdeacon Gilson and Rev E Cridge, the last reading the appropriate service. Rev Archdeacon then occupied the desk and read the usual portions from the ritual, after which 'Dead March in Saul' was performed on the organ. The coffin was then again placed in the hearse and conveyed to the cemetery, followed by nearly 1,000 persons. Arrived at the grave the beautiful and touching burial service was read and the 'narrow house' soon hid all that was mortal of the lamented deceased from the sight of her disconsolate relatives and their sorrowing friends. The bodies of 2 infant children of the deceased, who had been buried in the garden adjoining Dr Helmcken's residence, were also interred at the same time, in accordance with a previous expressed wish of their mother. It may, perhaps mitigate the intensity of the grief of the bereaved husband to know that so deep and general sympathy is felt for him in his heavy affliction. [Colonist, 1865-02-04*]

Died at Victoria, Vancouver Island, Mar 23, 1865, Dominico Ambrosio, aged 30, native of Portofino, Italy. Funeral from their late residence on Store st near Pandora. The 2 fishermen were found drowned near the entrance to the harbor. They had gone out on the previous morning in company with 2 other boats to fish at Esquimalt, and not being successful did not return with the others, who came back the same evening. Nothing further was heard from them by their companions till yesterday, when 2 Songish Indians who were coming into the harbor in a canoe discovered the boat floating half-filled with water, and on hearing it found the bodies of the unfortunate men, one with his head hanging in the water, his feet having caught in the net, and the other lying in the bottom of the boat. The Indians hastened into town and gave information to the friends of the deceased, and were at once sent back to bring in the bodies, which was done, information being at the same time sent to the Police. A fellow countryman of the drowned men, giving evidence at the inquest which was held, states that one of them was still warm when he stripped off the clothing � a rather strange circumstance. The boat was considerably damaged and the nets destroyed. Funeral attended by about 150 Italians and Greeks. [Colonist, 1865-03-21*]

The van was kept waiting for a long time, while Reid, the ferryman, sent 2 men to the hospital for the coffin, but, as they were unable themselves to carry it, and could obtain no assistance, they returned without the corpse. Meanwhile the minister, sexton, and driver with his 2 horses, were kept waiting with submissive patience for something to be done. What eventually was done we did not learn. [Colonist, 1865-03-30*]

� Three men named respectively Taylor, Turner and Bannerman, left Victoria in a canoe for Nanaimo. When off Trial Island the wind commenced to blow rather fresh, and they put in to land. Taylor refused to go any further; but the other 2 being determined to proceed on their journey, pushed off in the canoe and spread a blanket for a sail. They had only, however, got a short distance from the shore when the canoe upset, and the 2 men were left struggling in the water. Taylor was about to run for assistance when the men called upon him for God's sake not to leave, but to remain and endeavor to save them. No assistance, however, could be rendered, and the unfortunate men were drowned within hail of shore. The last words that Bannerman shouted before he sank were, 'It was all Turner's fault.' Bannerman (a Scotchman) was about 30, and his companion (an American), 34. The whole of the party had been working lately for Mr Morris, on Craigflower rd. The casualty occurred about 8, the party having camped for some time on the shore. Taylor ran into town and acquainted the police with the above melancholy circumstance. It was then too late to look for the bodies, but a search will be instituted today. Body of Turner found Jul 6 in vicinity of Trial Island. [Colonist, 1865-06-13, p. 3]
