DROWNED. The body of a German named Henry Witting was found in the Conemaugh river, on Friday morning last, on a sand bar a short distance below the Cambria Bridge. The deceased was a resident of Cambria City, and worked in the ore mines of Wood, Morell & Co. The last seen of him alive was on the Wednesday evening previous to the finding of his body: He leaves a wife and several children to mourn his untimely end. An inquest was held upon the body by a Corner's jury summoned for that purpose, and their verdict was that he came by his death "in some manner to the jurors unknown." Johnstown Echo.
