noun of eight and twelve p ni. The body wai

Then jury then retired to tha bouse of Mr. John
Watt, near tha wharf, and aftir deliberation, re
turned the following verdict: "That the laid Wm.

pose of awaiting the arrival of tha iteemer Express,

ing to reach tha end of the wharf he fell overboard
Into a slip and was drowned, and the body was re-
core red on me morning i naaj, uoiouer iz, at
12 o'clock. The jury do further find that there
was no light upon the wharf where tha steamer Ex
prs lands, and attribute the death of the laid de
cerned to the culpable negligence of the party or
1artles owning or controlling tba wharf, and who
deserve tha severest sensuro for not having at night
proper light for protection."
