Full Text

LOST OVERBOARD.- We learn from the Chicago Tribune, that Mr. Ebenezer Barrows, wheelsman on board the propeller EVERGREEN CITY, while heaving the lead over the deck rail, slipped overboard, about half past four, yesterday morning, when about five miles out of Milwaukee Bay. Several planks were immediately thrown him, and a boat lowered, but before he could be rescued, he was gone. His cap as recovered, but his body was not found. He was an Englishman, married, and daily expecting his family to meet him. How sad will be the news to them.
