The jury summoned in the case of the death of David Daryeau, of the schooner Ford River, who was killed in an accident at Charlotte, N.Y., a few weeks ago, returned a verdict, holding the coal company running the coal shutes there responsible for his death, and a settlement for damages, with the young man's relatives, is about to be made. It appears that the accident was caused through the neglect of the company.

It will be remembered that Daryeau was employed on the Ford River, his uncle, Chauncey Daryeau being the captain. While assisting in loading coal at Charlotte, one of the chutes gave way, striking young Daryeau, and he was instantly killed. Capt. Daryeau had a miraculous escape. The inquest was held at Rochester, N.Y.
