TENBY. MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE.—FOUR LIVES LosT.-On Mon- day afternoon, between one and two o'clock, a most lamentable event occurred at Prysap Bay, by which four persons belonging to this town lost their lives, Benjamin Nash, his two sons, Benja- min and John, aged respectively 17 and 13, and a young man named Lewis Bowen. had gone down to clear the lobster pots," and were in the aci; of drawing the second, when a sea struck and capsized the boat, and all four perished. The accident, was witnessed by a man who was on the rocks "crabbing;" but he ees to have taken no measure.. for giving an alarm, as (although it might have been beyond human power to render them any aid) he did not mention it to any one until some hours had elapsed. It was not known in Tenby until 10 o'clock at night, and yet it oc- curred only four miles hence. The body of Bowen was picked up on Tuesday, on the rocks, at high-water mark. It is supposed he had managed to swim through the breakers, and was killed by being dashed on the rocks. He was severely cut about the head and face. Nash was a very daring intrepid man, and during a period of more than 20 years, had been instrumental in saving a great number of lives from shipwreck and otherwise. He is much regretted, and has left a widow and four surviving children to deplore his loss. None of the other three bodies have yet been found.
