The passengers suffered severely from the inadequate arrangement by the officers for a voyage to unusually protracted. ..Two years later, his brother, CHARLES, the youngest of the family, and the very Benjamin of his aged father, undertook the journey across the Isthmus and survived its completion in less than a single month.

Sad Casualty.
A sad accident occurred at Lockport, in this county, on Saturday afternoon last. Mrs. Howe, wife of Isaac Howe, Esq., of that village, was at work around a fire out of doors, and by some means her clothes were ignited, and she was almost instantly enveloped in the flames. With great presence of mind, she threw herself upon a carpet that had been spread upon the grass in the yard, which had been wet by a shower, and rolled herself up in it, smothering the blaze and thereby, probably saving her life, though badly burned. Dr. Bailey, of this village, was called upon to attend the sufferer, through whom we learn these particulars.

In Watertown, on the 12th day of May ult, CELIA LUCRETIA, daughter of O. A. and JULIA A. GRAVES.
