In the loss of the Schooner OCEAN, four of our citizens have passed from time to eternity. Just before the OCEAN sailed from this port, Capt. McGregor came to our office, subscribed for our paper, and with boyancy of health and spirits good humeredly contrasted the varied and exciting life of a sailor with the monotony of a printer's existence, and his hearty laugh and jovial voice still ring in our ears. He has left a wife and 1 child. The Mate, Mr. Russel, has also left a wife and child.
The second mate, Quiner, has left a wife and 5 or 6 children to mourn his loss. The cabin boy, an Irish lad, has left a mouther who was partially dependent upon him for support.
We hope the tears of widows and orphans will incite goverment to some action in favor of our Lake harbors.
