ACCIDENTAL DEATH. On Wednesday, the 22d ult. an accident, which cost an estimable young gentleman his life, occurred in the immediate neighbourhood of Ramelton. Mr. Charles Haslett, a native of Meadville, in the United States of America, had come to this country, a few months previously, on a visit to his relations, and, in company with another young gentleman, was out shooting.

He was in the act of climbing a fence, when the gun, which it is conjectured was at full cock, exploded, and melancholy to relate, the entire contents lodged in his head, and caused instant death. The deceased was a young gentleman of great promise, and his melancholy fate is sincerely deplored (Strabane Morning Post)
