Full Text

DROWNED. -- We learn from the Muskegon Reporter that Charles Blankmyers, mate of the schooner S. BATES, was drowned at Muskegon on the 21st, in attempting to jump ashore with a line. It was quite dark at the time the accident occurred, and it is supposed the unfortunate man struck his head against the dock and was stunned thereby, as he sank without a struggle or without uttering a word. The deceased was 27 years old, unmarried, and had shipped at Chicago.
