||30 July 1872||News||Yesterday morning the British schooner "Sunbeam" from Cadiz, arrived here, having on board the shipwrecked crew of the "Frank Lovett." That vessel, which was loaded with a cargo of pig iron and bound from Antwerp to Philadelphia, sprung a leak and sunk in lat. 46.30, long. 41.32, on the 21st inst. Captain, wife and children, with the remainder of the crew, were out in an open boat of a small size for a considerable time. We learn that the Captain of the "Sunbeam" showed them every kindness.
||News||On Friday evening last, while the boat "Roxanna," Nathaniel Barrett, Master, was proceeding to Bishops Cove, with fishery supplies from the stores of Messrs. RIDLEY & SONS, a fatal accident took place. Whilst passing the bar, a young man named George SMITH, stunned himself by an abdominal fall, occasioned by leaping from the large boat to the small one in tow; and was subsequently drowned. Some suppose that he was instantaneously killed by the accident. We hope that every assistance will be rendered to the "Roxana" in finding the body.
||News||In reference to a previous notice of the fire which occurred at the residence of Capt. Jas. KEEFE, we are glad to ascertain, after careful investigation, that the fire did not arise from a defective state of the chimney. We have it positively from interested parties that is was a spark from the stove pipe which caused the ignition. Rumour had it the reverse, consequently our impressions were with it.
||27 Aug 1872||News||Missing: On Saturday forenoon, the 17th inst., Stephen FOLEY, an elderly person, who had been in the employ of Messrs. RIDLEY & SONS, for nearly 10 years, abruptly left his work (being at the time employed caulking.) He has not yet returned to his family who regret his absence. It appears that he has for some time been labouring under a state of despondency. On the Sabbath, the day after his disappearance, he called at a residence in the neighborhood of Carbonear, -- but being unknown, and the story of his absence not having reached there, he was, of course, at liberty to roam. Where the poor man has wandered to, is a question which several search expeditions have failed to ascertain. We hope he will soon turn up.
||Notice||Mr. D.S. GERRY, agent for Wilson's Theatrical Company, is in town making arrangements fro that celebrated company of Brilliant Professional Artists.
||News||It is indeed with pleasure we observe our revered and philanthropic friend, John MUNN, Esq., again amongst us. His absence during the greater part of the summer has truly been regretted. The needful, who ever find in him that generosity which marks the donor with respect, have greatly missed his presence in this community. However, he is with us again, "hale and hearty." We hope he will long be spared to administer, as has ever been his wont, to the wants of the necessitous. Dr. Wm. M. ALLAN arrived here per same conveyance, accompanied by two of the Misses ALLAN. It is very pleasing to have old friends amongst us once more.
||30 Aug 1872||Birth||On the 15th inst., the wife of Mr. D. HOGAN of a daughter.
