Yesterday morning the body of Philip 8. Gibbs was found about three-quarters of a mile below the mouth of the Christiana Creek, lying under about two feet of water, with one foot over the gunwale of the boat in which lie and a Mr. Smith had gone after ducks the previous day ; the body was cold and still' and had doubtless been dead for some time. Suspicion of foul play being ex pressed, a Coroner's Jury yesterday after noon held an Inquest over the body of the deceased at his residence, 5tli & West Sts. Mr. Smith, the (young man who accom panied Mr. Gibbs on the ducking expedition was called, and stated the circumstances of the drowning; from his testimony it ap pears that on Tuesday evening Smith and Gibbs were [rawing home from gunning; it being dark and rainy,they rowed into the reeds along the river bank, till the boat grounded ; Smith then got out and waded some distance, but became fastened in the mud from whloh he was finally extricated by some persons who had heard the hallow ing ; he mentioned that Gibbs was in the boat yet no attention was paid to It; witness says lie (was very much under the influence of liquor, and hardly knew what he was doing ; Gibbs and himself had taken with them three porter bottles of whiskey, and drank about one and one-half bottles ef it; the rest they had thrown away; testified that deceased was not a drinking man, and had never seen him in toxicated. Mr. Daniel Gihbs,brother of tho deceased, and Mr. Cogill, were both called and spoke of the good character of the previous wit ness; also the manner of finding the body yesterday morning. From the evidence given in there could not be the least suspicion of foul play of Gibbs' companion; only his thoughtlessness in deserting him was all the blame attached to Smith. Dr. Springer was called and tes tified to having examined the body of the deceased Gibbs and found on his body no marks of violence; believed that death was caused by drowning, while under the influ ence of liquor, as he thought if the deceased had drank one-half the quantity mentioned by Smith, it would be sufficient to stupefy him. In accordance with the facts the jury ren dered a verdict that Philip 8. Gibbs came to his death from accidental drowning. The deceased was twenty-four years of age, and leaves a wife but no children. A HIGH FALL. A MAN FALLS FORT! FEET THROUGH THE AIR AND IS UNHURT. About 1 or 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon James Moatc fell front the wall of the ex tension now being erected by D. H. Kent * Co., on Shipley street, to their building. Though the distance to the ground was over forty feet, Mr. Moatc was but slightly in jured, being somewhat bruised about the face by a piece of board striking him as he fell. He was removed to his boarding house, where he received tho medical atten tion of Drs. Bullock and West. JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWS. The Quicksteps and Famc-Ac'.ive to-day. Tills is Thanksgiving day.
