The Late Captain McEvoy - An inquest was held on the body of this gentleman at Brockville last night by Coroner Sholes. From the evidence taken it appears that the deceased slept on Thursday night at the International Hotel, which he left about half past seven on Friday morning to proceed on board his vessel. He walked down to the pier, on which was piled a large quantity of lumber, and which was very wet and slippery. He must have slipped into the water from this place, and being unable to swim, he was drowned before assistance could be rendered from his vessel, which was only a short distance from the wharf. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidentally drowned." Great sympathy is felt in town for his widow and children, who are thus prematurely deprived of the assistance of a kind husband and father. Captain McEvoy's funeral will take place tomorrow from his late residence on Johnson street to St. Mary's cemetery.
