Harbor Grace Standard & Conception Bay Advertiser

1887

The HARBOR GRACE STANDARD, earliest issue located: Dec. 7, 1859 (v. 1, no. 4) and it ceased publication: 1936. Frequency of publication was weekly, Dec. 7, 1859-Mar. 3, 1888; semiweekly, Mar. 10, 1888-1894 and weekly, 1894-1936?

The paper had several titles: Standard and Conception-Bay Advertiser, Dec. 7, 1859-Dec.25, 1867; Harbor Grace Standard and Conception-Bay Advertiser, Mar.1, 1871-Mar. 3, 1888; Harbor Grace Standard, Mar. 10, 1888-1936.

The Harbor Grace Standard published news of the Conception Bay Region, domestic and foreign news, legislative proceedings, extracts from St. John's papers, shipping and fishing news, poetry, and advertisements. The paper strongly opposed Confederation in 1865 but supported it by 1869. In the 1870's the paper did not receive patronage from the Bennett administration and supported Carter and Ambrose Shea, who represented the Harbour Grace district in the House of Assembly. The paper supported the railway and Whiteway's first administration. The Standard took the Protestant side in the aftermath of the 1883 Harbour Grace affray and supported Thorburn in 1885. The Standard was published until 1936 when it folded due to economic reasons.

Jan. 22, 1887Death OBIT - Last week it was our melancholy duty to record the decease of an old and much respected inhabitant of Carbonear, the late Capt. Mark FORWARD. This week it is our equally sad task to chronicle the death of another of that fine class of men, the old, genuine Newfoundland Planters, whose ranks are being rapidly thinned by the lapse of each succeeding year. Mr. FLEMING, like Mr. FORWARD, died as he lived - a man greatly beloved, respected and looked up to. The family and friends of both these old citizens have our deepest sympathy. They have left behind them a record of which no one need be ashamed. Another old citizen who has passed over to the great majority is the late Mr. J.C. TOUSSAINT, who resided for many years in this town. He died at St. John's on Wednesday last. Mr. TOUSSAINT was a native of France, was born about twelve miles outside of Paris, and would, if he had lived, attain his eightieth year in March next. He came to Newfoundland in 1832, and married about two years later. He celebrated the golden jubilee of his wedding 2 years ago, and was in enjoyment of prime health at the time of his death. Many older residents of St. John's, now living in other lands, will (as our contemporary the Colonist says) recall with kindly regret the cheery smile and hearty manner of the deceased gentlemen.

There was a full choir present and the organ was under the control of J.W. WITHERS, Esq. Precisely at 11 o'clock the bride, leaning on the arm of W.F. RENNIE, Esq., who acted as father-giver, entered the church followed by Miss CHAMBERLAIN, Miss Edith WARREN, and two little girls - the Misses ROTHWELL. The bride looked very pretty in a perfectly fitting dress of plain white silk, with a court train. Resting lightly on her head was a wreath of orange blossoms from which draped a long veil of Brussels net. In her hand she carried a bouquet of flowers composed of lilies and white geraniums. Miss CHAMBERLAIN , who acted as chief bridesmaid, was arrayed in a dress of the same material as the bride's trimmed with swan-down. She wore a becoming little bonnet and held a bouquet of brightly coloured flowers. The other brides' maids appeared in cream, trimmed with cardinal and, instead of bonnets, wore neat little caps of the "Tam O'Shanter" style. They all looked exceedingly charming. The groom was supported by his brother, the Rev. Reginald HEYGATE. Messrs. CHAPMAN, STICK, STIRLING, COLLIER, PEEL AND MILLER acted as ushers. The party then drove to the residence of Mr. W.F.

Death Another of that fine old class of men - the genuine Newfoundland planters and sealing-masters - has lately passed away from our midst. Capt. Joseph JEFFERS died at his residence, Fresh Water, on Thursday last. He was well and favorably known to many in Harbor Grace as well as elsewhere throughout the Island. He sailed out of this port to the seal fishery, for many years. His family and friends have our warmest sympathy. The funeral will take place at Freshwater on tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon. Mr. JEFFERS will be buried with Masonic honors. The members of Lodge "Harbor Grace" will leave here in the Lady Glover at 2 p.m. tomorrow for the purpose of attending and taking part in the obsequies.

NewsA painful accident occurred on Monday last on the Placentia line of railway - an accident by which John MORAN of the south side of the Riverhead of this place had his arm blown off. The accident occurred in this way. The unfortunate man, it seems, was engaged in blasting rocks. He loaded the hole in the rock twice, and in picking it out the charge exploded taking away the greater portion of the hand. The remaining part was successfully amputated by Dr. Duncan of Brigus. The wounded man was brought by Sergeant O'BRIEN, to the hospital of St. John's and is now, we learn, improving under careful treatment.

Death The Late Mrs. Patrick BROWN - On Thursday, the 3rd inst., there passed from our midst after a short illness, fortified by the rites of the Church, Mrs. Patrick BROWN, at the advanced age of 76 years, 55 of which she resided in this town. The deceased was universally regretted (as was evinced by the very large number of visitors to her remains during the interval of her death and burial), for her kindly disposition, true hospitalty and unostentatious charity. It has been truly said of her "that no person ever left her house hungry or thirsty". she reared a large and respectable family, two of whom have consecrated themselves to the service of God, one in the Presentation Convent of this town, who, accompanied by the Rev. Superioress, was kindly permitted by His Lordship, Dr. MacDonald to visit and take a last look at that Mother she loved so well - a privilege rarely accorded to persons in that Order. The other was a sister of Charity at Mount St. Vincent, Halifax, N.S. The remains of the deceased lady were interred in the Roman Catholic Cemetery on Saturday evening, and notwithstanding the intense frost, were accompanied by a large concourse of people of all creeds and classes. May she rest in peace.

ObitVerses composed in memory of Mark PIKE by his affectionate wife, Louisa PIKE How sad it is for one to think - It fills my heart with gloom - To think that one I loved so dear - Lies mouldering in the tomb. He did not dream death was so nigh - But still it lingered near - It cam, just like a thief in the night - And stole from me my dear. Though hard it was to part with him - I loved and did esteem - Can it be that he is now dead - Or is it but a dream? Oh, how that dear one must have felt - No human tongue can tell - Unable for to say one word - Or bid his friends farewell. Oh, could I clasp that hand again - and fold him to my breast - Impress and kiss upon his lips - And on his bosom rest! Can I foget that well-known voice - that sounds so in my ear? - Oh, no, my heart in sorrow burns - Mine eyes they fill with tears.. There did he end his sad complaint - His work of toil is o'er - To think that one we loved so well - Died on a desolate shore. To think that face I'll see no more - Till death shall call me too - And then I'll see him face to face - And meet to part no more. I fancy I can hear him call - And at that call obey - But, no, that voice I cannot hear - It's passed from earth away. I miss him at the twilight hour - When evening shadows fall - When all around seems lone and drear - I miss him most of all. And as I read these sad remarks - My heart with sorrows burn - To think that dear loved one is gone - Ah! never to return. I trust that he has reached that land - That happy peaceful shore - where sin and sorrow never come - And pain is felt no more.

Feb. 26, 1887NewsA Sad Case, attended with fatal consequences, happened here during he past week. It seems that a young lad named BROWN had his toes severely frozen while in the woods a few days ago. When he returned he complained that his feet felt very sore, but not much ado was made about the affair, it was not supposed to be so bad as the issued proved. The lad went down the town and did not appear to complain much. After returning home, he complained again of his feet. An examination revealed the unpleasant fact that they were badly frozen. In order to get his boots off, his feet had to be put in warm water. It was with great difficulty the boots were removed, a neighbor had to be sent for, who attended as best she could to the injured feet. Here comes in the strange part of the tale; for six days after this, it seems, no further attention was paid to the lad's feet; and, when medical aid was summoned, it was too late - nothing could be done for the unfortunate lad, his toes being completely gone. Lockjaw ensued, and after a short time, death terminated his sufferings. This is an unfortunate case. It shows the need of prompt measures being taken and careful treatment bestowed in case of severe frost bites. Careful handling at the outset would in all probability have saved the life of the luckless lad, who was well known to many of the housekeepers around town.

NewsA Shocking Gunpowder Accident is reported by a Telegram correspondent at Harbour LeCoo, writing under date Feb. 11. The facts are these; On Wednesday last, the wife of Philip FALL had some powder damaged, and she put a little in some paper and threw it in the stove, and she had about two or three pounds in her hand besides. The powder flew out of the stove and caught what was in her hand and caused an explosion. Some of the windows burst out, but otherwise, the explosion did not hurt the house. The woman's face and hands were burnt very badly, and her little boy, three years old, who was near the stove, had his face nearly burnt off, so that he has not opened his eyes since. The other occupants of the house, Mrs. FALL'S sister-in-law, and another little girl, were not injured. Mrs. FALL remains in a poor state and has since given birth to a son.

NewsLoss of the Schooner " Bessie" - The intelligence was received at St. John's on Tuesday last that the schooner Bessie belonging to Hon. M. MONROE, Capt. POWER, 27 days from Boston, with a general cargo, was driven ashore at Powel's Head, near Trepassey. A despatch from the last named place states that the Bessie left Burin (where she had been for nine days) "on Monday and got as far as Cape Race. Not being able to get through a string of ice there, she bore away for Trepassey, and got stuck into ice in the Reach. Ice wheeled her around Powel's Head, and having got between the Sinking rocks and Drift Cove, the captain and crew left her, with two anchors down, there being a very heavy sea on at the time. Very heavy sea on during Tuesday night's gale from the south west with torrents of rain increasing the sea. The Captain and crew remained at the scene of the wreck all night without any covering. This morning the schooner wheeled out of the Cove and was thrown high and dry on one of the sinking rocks and afterwards she was thrown off - knocking holes in her. Captain POWER, seeing no chance of saving the vessel or cargo, handed her over to the wreck commissioner to do the best he could for all concerned, as it was such a great risk of life, and the best he could do was to give her up, and have the cargo, landed on the half, which consisted of about six hundred and fifty barrels flour and general cargo, more or less damaged. If sold on the spot it will realize its value, but to have the underwriters' part sent to St. John's or removed into Trepassey, it would cost more than the first cost of the articles and be a dead loss to the underwriters.

GREEN, JR. writes that he arrived at Victoria, B.C. on the 1st Feby. He intended leaving on the following day for Behring's Straits as navigator of the steam schooner Anna Beck, with a crew composed of 6 whites and 25 Indians which would be shipped on the coast. The party did not expect to get back before May, when they would return to refit. Capt. KEEFE had a promise of employment from the same firm.

We wish both of our enterprising friends every success possible; and shall be at all times glad to learn of their advancement.

May 14, 1887NewsA fire, attended with the loss of a valuable human life, took place at St. John's early last Monday morning. It seems, says the Mercury, the fire broke out in the forecastle of the S.S. Daylesford, a vessel which had arrived a short ime ago with coal for the use of the Dundee steamers, and was then laying abreast of their wharf on the south side. The crew were asleep at the time when the alarm was given by the watchman, and all but one man managed to make their way through the dense smoke to the deck. As soon as it was found that one of the crew was missing, every effort was made to rescue him. His groans were heard, and several persons ventured in to his help; but before he could be found, half an hour had elapsed, and when carried on deck he was quite unconscious and apparently had been suffocated. It appears that the unfortunate man had left his bunk and, in trying to escape, had missed his way, and fallen on the floor where he was at length discovered and dragged out. The doctor of the Polynia was speedily in attendance, and soon after Dr. Harvey was summoned. Their efforts to restore life were partially successful; respiration recommenced, and at first there were strong hopes that he would rally. But the system was so poisoned with carbonic acid gas that he sank gradually and died about 12 o'clock. His name was Wm. BOYD, a native of Troon, Scotland, aged 36 years. He was buried in the Riverhead Cemetery in the afternoon. The fire appears to have originated from the stove in the forecastle, which set fire to the bulkhead. The steamer was hauled in to the wharf, by the south side Fire Brigade, and the Steam Fire engine playing on the fire from the shore, extinguished the flames before any serious damage was done.

NewsAnother fire occurred at 11:30 on Monday night. On examination it was found that a back house attached to the dwelling occupied by Mr. Henry CARTER, Tiller of the Union Bank, was on fire. The fireman were promptly on the spot, but it was some time before the fire was extinguished, as the flames had communicated with the house, and running up the side got under the eaves and between the ceilling where the water could not play on them until the holes had been cut in the roof. This speedily done, when the firemen had fair play, and the fire was soon extinguished, but not before considerable damage had been done to the dwelling house and furniture. It is not known how the fire originated. The back house in which it caught had not been in use. Much of the contents of the house had been removed, fearing the worst.

Jun. 18, 1887NewsA SERIOUS ACCIDENT is reported by the Trinity Record. A few days ago a number of men at that town were engaged in launching a large boat, and having decided to tip her from one side to the other, several of them went to prevent her from falling with force and doing injury. William WOOLRIDGE, one of the number, unwisely put his back under the hinder part of the boat; upn her being tipped the men were unable to support her weight and coming down she crushed the unfortunate man in a double to the ground. As speedily as possibe he was extricated from his horrible position but he was crushed and suffering excruciating agony. He was immediately conveyed to the Surgery of Dr. White, who was promptly in attendance, and soon ascertained that the unfortunate man's back was broken and also his left leg broken in two places below the knee. Under the Doctor's skillful treatment the poor fellow was soon considerably relieved of his intense suffering, but he still lies in a precarious condition. The unfortunate man is married and has a large family.

NewsTHE LATE MR. JOHN F. MORRIS - Today's obituary column contains the notice of the decease of this gentleman. Mr. MORRIS, says the Mercury, was a native of this country and had only reached the prime of life. For some years after he had completed his education at St. Bonaventure College, he was the trusted agent and accountant of the late Captain Murphy of Catalina, and there Mr. MORRIS gained a practical knowledge of the general business of this country. Afterwards he held a chair at St. Bonaventure, which he resigned for the more lucrative position of correspondent of the New York Herald in Newfoundland. Mr. MORRIS was possessed of abilities of a very high order. He was an able and trenchant writer, a fact well evidenced by his continuing to hold the agency of the New York Herald and the Associated Press for such a long time. We offer to his relatives our sympathy upon the early demise of one whose life was so full of promise.

NewsDEATH OF CAPT. FRANCIS - The sudden decease of this well known mariner is announced. Says Wednesday's Telegram; the intelligence, received in town today, of the unexpected death at Harbor Briton of Captain FRANCIS, commander of the coast mail steamer Curlew, awakened deep and universal regret in every circle. Few men were better or more favorably known then the deceased gentleman. He had all the qualities which win respect and even regard. A sailor who knew by heart the intricacies of navigation on the extensive stretch of coast which he navigated, and brought skill and conscientious fidelity to the discharge of his trust, travellers had implicit confidence in his seasmanship. In private life, of manners obliging, gentle, and straightforward, he left the impress of a sincere nature upon all with whom he came in contact. His family and friends have our warm sympathies. The Curlew left Burin on Thursday morning, having on board the remains of the late esteemed Capt. FRANCIS. His death causes much regret along the coast. The greatest sympathy is felt for his afflicted wife and family.

The boat was discovered bottom up; but a protracted search failed to reveal the whereabouts of the bodies. One of the men, named MEADOWS, was married and had a large family. The other, GREGORY, it appears, was also married, but had no children. They were both worthy men, and their untimely death is widely regretted.

Jul. 30, 1887NewsCASUALTIES AT LABRADOR - We regret to have to chronicle the occurrence at Labrador of several fatal casualties, particulars of which have been received the the S.S. Plover. The first we have to notice is that which happened to an old and much respected inhabitant of Carbonear - Capt. Maurice DOYLE. The circumstances attending the death of the lamented deceased are these: He, it seems, with his youngest son, was engaged in setting a salmon net, and during the time he complained of feeling weak. After a short interval, the son asked his father how he was getting on, then he noticed that he was fainting; and he made all haste for home. On arriving there no time was lost in getting the unfortunate man to bed and apply such restoratives as it was hoped would arouse him but all to no purpose. He rallied for a short time and spoke a few words in prayer. In a few moments, the death struggle was past, and Capt. Maurice DOYLE, was no more. The cause of death is believed to have been heart disease. Mr. DOYLE was in his 72nd year, and was hale and hearty. The name of Maurice DOYLE will be remembered by Newfoundlanders as well here as outside the country; he was one of our oldest planters, dealing for many years with the late firm of Messrs. Ridley & Sons and lattely with Messrs. John Munn & Co. of this town. It was he who commanded the old packet boat Native Lass, referred to in the stanzas on "dear old Newfoundland" which appeared in these columns a few weeks ago. He was also in charge of the packets Nora Greena and Friends. He was engaged, upwards of forty years as packet master and mail carrier between Carbonar and Portugal Cove. Mr. DOYLE during all that time was noted for geniality and large-heartedness, and won the respect and esteem of all who travelled with him. To the poor man he was a friend indeed; no unfortunate wayfarer, lacking the wherewithal to procure a passage, was ever left ashore by him. Thus, has another old inhabitant of the old colony passed over to the ranks of the great majority. The late Mr. DOYLE'S remains were brought home for interment by the S.S. Plover. The funeral services which took place at Carbonear yesterday afternoon, were conducting by His Lordship Bishop MacDonald. The remains were followed to their last resting place by a large number of the citizens, of all classes, of Carbonear, besides many from Harbor Grace. His family and friends have our deep sympathy.

Aug 20, 1887NewsTHOSE DESTRUCTIVE FOREST FIRES, which for some time past have been devastating the country in the neighorhood of the Goulds, again threatened to destroy that valuable property during the current week. On Tuesday night, the hill south of the Goulds valley, and within 500 yards of the buildings thereon, was one vast sheet of flames, stretching for a distance of nearly two miles. The greatest fears were at one time entertained for the safety of all the dwellings on the Goulds Ridge; it was thought that nothing could snatch them from the fury of the devouring element. A detachment of the Brigus Fire Brigade - consisting of Messrs. KANAVAGH, POWER, RABBITS and HUNT, was sent out from that town to see if they could be of some assistance in protecting the threatened property. Observing on Tuesday night how serious matters looked, they returned to Brigus for the engine, which they brought into the Goulds. They remained at Mr. MAKINSON'S house for about an hour, watching the progress of the flames. At one time the fire looked so threatening on the hill with a short distance from the Goulds, that it was feared that all the property in that neighborhood was doomed. Fortunately, however, a very welcome shower of rain arrested the progress of the flames, and all danger for the time being was past. The sight witnessed was one to be long remember. The heat of the fire exploding the rocks - the roaring noise of the hissing flames as they frantically rushed along over the hills - all this lent much excitement and alarm to the scene. Fortunately it ended there. Immense damage has been done by these late forest fires. The whole country for seven or eight miles has been burnt, form the Goulds right into the Railway track. From the top of the highest land in the neighborhood, as far as the eye can reach not a particle of vegetation is to be seen, nothing but a blackened tract of country. 'Tis a great pity that the parties through whose carelessness the woods were set on fire, are not prosecuted, and punished, as they deserve to be. Much credit is due to Mr. WILCOX, the Brigus Magistrate, who, on representations being made to him, sent in some assistance to help to stay the ravages of the conflagration.

Amid the attendant pleasures of more youthful days, the amiable qualities which come forth in the person of the deceased justly merited admiration - qualities which became more apparent year after year. Though always able to command a large share of worldly wealth; she was too sensible of its fleeting character to allow pride to use undue influence over her daily actions, whilst her generosity to the poor even beneath her parents' care was known to many and for which she now, no doubt, has met her due reward. To the family and friends of the deceased the writer of this notice tenders his sincere sympathy, at the same time we must all remember the Golden Shelf and....(remainer of text unreadable).

Oct. 15, 1887NewsTWO NEWFOUNDLAND CASTAWAYS - A STORY OF THE SEA - The Edinburgh Scotman, tells a remarkably graphic story of the sea, about two Newfoundland fishermen who formed part of the crew of the banking schooner, Mary Harris. The interesting particulars are these: The two fishermen - Richard NOSEWORTHY and Esau PERCEY, were engaged about the end of September in attending to their trawls. They left their schooner about 5 o'clock in the evening; but before they reached the buoy at the far end a dense fog came on and they completely lost their reckoning. They endeavoured to make their way back to the schooner but failed to do so though they rowed long and shouted loudly. The sea began to rise, and for the next forty-eight hours they were practically at the mercy of the waves in their boat, unable to see a yard off on either side of them. They had neither food nor water, and they speedily got drenched to the skin by the waves which dashed against their frail craft. It was NOSEWORTHY'S task to keep the head of the boat to the wind to prevent it being swamped, while his comrade worked constantly bailing tokeep the craft clear of water. They were both in a sad plight, tired out with their great exertions, famished for want of food, and on the verge of despair, when at the end of the second day, of such hardships, they saw to their great joy a large steamer looming through the fog quite close beside them. They hailed it and were answered in reply, and pulling towards her were taken on board. She turned out to be a goods boat trading between New York and Brerhaven, whose course fortunately took her round by the Grand Bank. Her captain was exceedingly kind to the two castaways, as were also his crew, who share their clothing with the two men thus providentially thrown in their way. The steamer arriving at Bremerhaven the fishermen were taken in charge by the English Consul, who forwarded them to Leith by the North Star. The poor men were absolutely destitute. They had not a penny in the world. Unfortunately, too, they are not members of the Shipwrecked Mariners' Society, and how they were to get back to Newfoundland was a problem. The Messrs. Currie wrote to the office of the Shipwrecked Mariners' Society in London, laying the facts of the case before them; but a favorable reply was hardly looked for, as the Society finds it hard enough to meet the claims upon it of its many members. But it cannot be that two poor Newfoundland fishermen, cast up, as it were, of the sympathy of two such towns as Edinburgh and Leith; will long be kept in anxiety as to the means of getting back to their homes again. NOSEWORTHY, while speaking of his wife and family, did so with his eyes full of tears, well knowing, as he did, the terrible anxiety they must have felt all through the long weary days between the date when he was cast away in the fog .....(the rest of the story is missing).

Dec. 3, 1887NewsA FATAL ACCIDENT occurred at the Atlantic Hotel, St. John's, last Monday morning at 3 o'clock. The facts as given by the press are as follows: It appears that at one o'clock, William SHEA, the porter of the Hotel, was at work cleaning boots. Mr. FORAN came along and told him to stop work, turn off the gas and go to bed. He at once put out the lights and, as Mr. FORAN thought, went to bed, but instead of doing so he went out, and returned home at three o'clock. His room was in the basement storey, but, for some unknown reason, he lighted the gas in the elevator, set it in motion and ascended to the third story where he stepped out upon the landing, but forgot to stop the elevator which continued to rise higher. It is supposed that finding himself in darkness, he attempted to get hold of the rope to arrest the motion of the elevator, but in doing so he overbalanced himself, and fell head foremost down the opening in which it works, a distance of thirty-six feet. No one was astir at the time, but the shriek the poor fellow uttered as he felt himself going, and the crash of his terrible fall roused the inmates and assistance was speedily given. Dr. Harvey was called in at once but the unfortunate man was unconscious and pulseless, and bleeding profusely from ears and nostrils. Father Delaney was also in attendance and prepared him for death. He rallied slightly but never recovered consciousness, and died about eleven o'clock yesterday forenoon. It is a singular fact that not a single bone in his body was broken, but falling on his head, the skull was probably fractured. He was but 26 years old and leaves a wife and two young children to mourn his loss.

Dec. 10, 1887NewsFATAL RAILWAY ACCIDENT - An accident attend with fatal results, occurred on the railway yesterday afternoon between the hours of 3 and 4 o'clock. It appears that two men named HEALY and MARTIN respectively, employees of the Railway company, together with a lad named KENNEDY, and a girl named Mary CONNORS, were on a trolly or hand car going down the North slope of Cat Hills at the rate of about fifteen miles an hour, when suddenly, rounding a curve, they perceived the train coming against them. HEALY and MARTIN immediately threw themselvles off and escaped with little or no injury, but,unfortunately, KENNEDY and the girl, who were sitting on the back part of the trolley, either did not see the train or had not time to cast themselves off before it was on them, sending them and the trolly several fee in the air. the trolly was broken into splinters and its two unfortunate passengers coming down on their heads received severe injuries. The were both picked up in an insensible condition and conveyed to Salmon Cove as soon as possible and two doctors were telegraphed for. They speedily arrived and at once decided to have the victims carried to St. John's. Before arriving there poor KENNEDY died, but the girl lived to be taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries at ten o'clock this morning. So far as we can learn not the least blame can be attached to the railway authorities. The man who had charge of the trolley was disobeying orders in running it at the time the train was expected from Harbor Grace. the collison must have been terrible, as the train was going at the rate of twenty-two miles an hour. The cow-catcher and head of engine were damaged considerably. This morning a magisterial enquiry was held before Judge Prowse. (There is a detailed statement by Mr. E.H. Saville, Manager too lengthly to be printed here). William KENNEDY, the deceased was a native of Salmon Cove, aged 19 years, and Mary CONNORS, belonged to Conception Harbour and was but 16 years old.
