Dr WATSON was in the boat with Capt HARRISON the commander of the Great Eastern when the sad accident occurred which resulted in the death of that gentleman. Dr WATSON was a man of great self-possession, professional, devotedness intelligence and a personal courage, and the heroic exertions he made at the time of the disaster to save the life of his gallant commander and the lives of others in jeopardy at the imminent risk of his own formed a theme of universal praise at the time.
