Found Drowned.

--On Monday afternoon, about 4 o'clock, the Captain of a schooner, in the Dock observed a dead body floating in the water, and as soon as possible had it taken out and placed upon the wharf. It was soon afterward identified as the body of Mr. Robert H. Holdsworth, whose mysterious disappearance, some four weeks ago, has been noticed in this paper. A silk handkerchief was found grasped in one of the hands of the deceased, and his watch and some twenty-five dollars in money were in the pockets. There is every reason to suppose that his death was the result of accident. Acting Coroner Sanxay was notified, but deemed it unnecessary to hold an inquest. Mr. Holdsworth was a resident of Church Hill, a carpenter by occupation, and for some time previous to his death had been employed upon work for the Government. He leaves a family.
