1856 - The Longueuil Catastrophes

The coroner's jury on the bodies of person killed by the explosion of the steam ferry at Longueuil, Canada, in a verdict strongly condemnatory of the entire management of the boat, have awarded a fine of $10,000 against the Grand Trunk Railway Co. They had also determined to render a verdict of manslaughter against Ethell and Shaud, but at the suggestion of the Queen's counsel, in reference to a legal difficulty, abandoned their intention.
