      Drowning of Little Boy. -- An inquest was held yesterday at the residence of Mr. Simeon Beisheir, on Park Avenue, opposite Pratte avenue, on the body of his little boy, George C. Beisheir, between three and four years of age, who was drowned Saturday afternoon under the following circumstances: Mr. Beisheir had gone down town after dinner, leaving his wife sewng on the proch, with her little boy playing at her side and the other children running about the house and yard. The little fellow soon left his mother’s side and ran round into the yard. A few moments afterwards the mother got up and walked around the corner of the house to look after him. Not finding him at once she called two of the older children to look for him, one of whom soon saw his brother’s frock in a little pond or pool, which was intended for the ducks and geese to drink from. A moment afterwards the body of the child was drawn out of the water.

      Died.
      August 19th by drowning, GEORGE C. BEISHEIR, aged 3 years and 4 months, son of Simeon and Sarah Beisheir.
