On Thursday evening last, as a young seaman named THOMAS SMITH, about twenty
years of age, and one of the crew of the brig Campbell, was going on board
the Countess of Lonsdale steamer, which was lying alongside the Sugar
Tongue, he unfortunately met with a watery grave.  SMITH, who was very much
intoxicated, upset the plank as he was going on board, and fell into the
water.  Every exertion was made to recover the body, which immediately sank,
and was not got out of the water until life had become extinct.  The
deceased, we understand, was a native of Poole, and bore an excellent
character.  An inquest was held on the body on the following day, when the
verdict of 'accidental death" was returned; and the remains of the
unfortunate youth were afterwards interred at Trinity Church in Whitehaven.
