Melancholy Accident in Gartly

We are sorry to learn, that on the night of Monday the 18th, during a tremendous storm of rain, wind, and snow, Mr Cruickshank, schoolmaster of Gartly, lost his way within a mile of his own house, and perished from the rigour of the night.  He has left a large family to bewail his premature death.
