Two brothers drowned.

--A sad affair occurred at Bath, Me., on Wednesday evening last. Two brothers, sons of Mr. Charles McLellan, were drowned while on their way to a vessel laying at one of the wharves in that city. It is supposed that the younger brother fell through a hole on the wharf into the water, and that the other attempted his rescue, as both of the bodies were found together on the following day. The painfulness of the casualty is increased by the fact that the parents of the deceased boys are both confined to their beds by sickness.
