--Yesterday evening, while a free negro named Davenport was rowing about the dock in a best, with two or three white boys, skimming for fish, the boat upset. The boys escaped by swimming; but the negro, unable to do so, sank helpless to the bottom. His body was recovered a short time after the accident.
