Drowned. --A brakesman on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, named McDonnell was drowned about 3 o'clock, Monday morning, in Harris' Creek, in Amherst co., Va., near where it empties into James River. The unfortunate man was on his way from his boarding-house, to the turning table near by, and in crossing the bridge which spans the creek, lost his way, it being very dark, and fell in, and not being able to swim, soon drowned. A fellow workman was near by at the time, but a pitchy darkness prevailing, was unable to render any assistance. McDonnell was about 24 years of age, and was from Alexandria.
