Mr. Stevens, who was passing, and another person named GOULD, jumped in to her assistance. Gould was thrown against the rocks and had his leg broken, but Stevens received an injury to his head and sank immediately, and the body has not been found. MISS BAILEY has called on his widow to sympathise with her, and has promised that she shall be provided for.
