FATAL CASUALTY ON LAKE ERIE--A ROCHESTER SAILOR KILLED.
--The Democrat states that a young man named Julius F. GULDENSCHUH, a hand on the schooner Caroline E. Bailey, which cleared from this port on the 11th of April, with 4000 bushels of potatoes for Chicago, lost his life by an accident off the port of Erie, last Wednesday night. The main boom jibed over and struck him in the forehead, with such force as to rupture some of the blood vessels in the brain. He fell to the deck senseless, and though he lived ten hours after the occurrence, he never regained his consciousness. The vessel put into Painesville, whence the master, Captain WATROUS, sent a dispatch to the friends of the deceased, in this city, inquiring what disposition should be made of the body. It was received Friday evening, by Mr. Isaac GULDENSCHUH, a brother of the unfortunate young sailor, who is employed in the Democrat and American office, and he immediately sent a man to Painsville, with directions to bring the remains to Rochester for interment. Before the messenger arrived at his destination, the body had been buried but he caused it to be taken up, and reached Rochester with it on the 8:20 train, Saturday evening. The funeral took place at the residence of the widowed mother of deceased, on North Clinton street, Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. Young GULDENSCHUH was only 19 years of age, and this was his second season on the lakes. He shipped in the Caroline E. Bailey, on the 5th of the present month. psm
