INQUEST--An inquest was held on Monday, by Mr. HENRY,
on the body of a man named ALEXANDER FLEMING, who was
found drowned on Sunday morning in a stream of water only
seven inches deep. It appears that FLEMING and his wife when
returning from Portadown market on the night previous, called
in a public-house at Cockle Hill, after leaving which they
proceeded on the way, but had not gone far when the wife missing
FLEMING gave the alarm. Search was made, but to no effect.
It is supposed he must have fallen in the stream, and being
unable to extricate himself was smothered. A verdict of "found
drowned" was returned.
