Found Drowned - A man named McInnes, a hand on board the schooner Royalist, was found drowned on Thursday last close to the McNab street wharf. The evening previous he got leave to sleep on board the schooner, so as to be ready to start by the steamer next morning for Toronto, as he intended going to his family, who reside 40 miles back of either Andover or Darlington. Supposing that he had left as intended, he was not missed, until his cap being found on the wharf excited suspicion, when on search being made his body was found in the water between the vessel and wharf. - An inquest was held and a verdict of Accidental Drowning recorded. - Hamilton Gazette.
