Distressing Accident

The Heard this morning has the following: In getting into a skiff to return from a hunting expedition on the Island last evening Barney BOER, a young man of 19 years of age, whose parents reside in this city, accidentally shot himself, from the effects of which he soon died in the arms of his comrade, whose name we did not learn. It appears that the comrade embarked first, young BOER put his gun in butt end foremost, and in attempting to step in himself, drew the gun a little towards him, cocking and discharging it, the contents lodging in his left breast. His lifeless body was brought down to the levee and an inquest held over it by Coroner WATSON. Deceased was an only son.
