CRICCIETH. I SHOCKING BOAT ACCIDENT.—A shocking fatality is reported from Aberdovey, a favourite sea-battling place on the coast of Wales. On Thursday afternoon, the 9th nit., two young gentlemen, one the son of a Mr Kuowles, a retired solicitor of Sttffurd, the other a Mr Jackson, son of a London shipbroker, went out in a small boat. When about half way across they were met by one of the river pilots, Capt. Bell, who drew their at- tention to the threatening aspect of the weather. They refused to go back with him, and this was the last seen of them. Oil Friday the boat came ashore at Criccieth, about forty miles distant, and it is believed that the unfortunate gentlemen must have perished in the great gale which visited the coast on Thursday uight. About half-past two on Saturday afternoon the body of Jack- son was seen by a woman lying high and dry (the tide being out) on the opposite side, on some stones, on his back The ferryman who had just taken the woman across heard her shout, and immediately went to the corpse the crews of the several boats that were in the river dragging, pulled to shore, and assisted in bnngiug the body of the uufortunate young mau across to Aber- dovey, and it was then taken to the house where the deceased lodged on the Terrace. An inquest was held on Monday, when a veidict in accordance with the above facts was returned. The sad catastrophe has cast a great gloom over the inhabitants, as both gentlemen were highly respected, they having been in the town for a considerable time. The brother happened to be pre- sent soon after the body was found. No traces of the other body have been discovered.
