p.2 An Inquest was held today on view of the body of a man who fell from the rigging of the Eleonora on Friday last. It appears that the deceased had on that day climbed up the rigging of the above named vessel, in a state of intoxication, and that, by a part of the rigging slipping, he was precipitated on the ice below - the concussion consequent on the fall having reduced him to a state of insensibility. He was carried to the infirmary, where he lingered till yesterday morning. The name of the man is as yet unknown; but from information obtained from him by the surgeon in attendance, he is supposed to be a German sailor of the name of Frederick Lohr, who once resided in Cincinnati.
