August Gale of 1873

Would anyone know of a listing of Antigonish county residents who perished in the August Gale of 1873?? Specifically, I am looking for the Name Alexander McDonald, son of Alexander McDonald and Isabella (MacGillivray)McDonald of St. Andrews, Antigonish county. It is reported in Drummer-on-Foot that he drowned at sea in the August gale of 1873. No death registration is available on the nova Scotia vital stats website. I have compiled an extensive database on this McDonald line from immigration to present day, however, confirmation of Alex's death escapes me. All leads appreciated.
