On yesterday morning three young
colored boys from 12 to 15 years of
age—Walter Davies, Ltftius Few and
Frank Winn—and two colored men,
Tom Wright and Tobe Slater, went
out to the river, in rear ot Mr. Jas. S.
Smith’s plantation, and went washing
and fishing. While the two men were
up the river fishing the three boys
went in washing in a place where the
water was about 10 feet deep. After
some time one of the boys, Walter
Davies, became fatigued or scared,
and commenced to drown. He made
an outcry, and the other two boys, in
the effort to rescue him after, he had
sunk the second time, reached him a
pole, but he Could not hold to it, and
sank the third time and did not rise.
The boys gave the alarm and an eflort
was made to find the body, unsuccess
fully at first. After a good deal of
hunting the news was brought to town
and a party made up to go out and re
cover the body. Mac Davies, the
father of the boy, and a number of our
citizens, both white and colored, went
out, but took the Cairo road, under
the impression that the drowning had
occurred near Jones’ bridge. While
they were hunting the place two col
ored men, Elder Downs and Robert
King had taken charge of the body,
which had been recovered by two col
ored men who lived in the neighbor
hood, Isaac Ivey and Robert Crum
ley, brought it to town and carried it
to Davies’ home. They came in some
time before the other party arrived
We learn that Ivey and Crumley found
the body clinging to a log about three
feet under water, in a place where the
water was about ten feet deep, and it
is lair to presume that the boy, in Ins
dying moments, grasped the log.
Mac Davies and his boy were both
very much liked -by our people, and
the regret at the loss is universal.
The burial will lake place to-day.
Off to Amerious.
