Inquest - On Thursay, the 19th inst., an inquest was held at the Crown Railway Hotel, before Thomas Atkinson, Esq., coroner, on the body of Thos. Woodward, a waterman, who met with his death from drowning.  It appeared that he was coming in a lighter from Stanground, and when within a short distance of the bridge, he was asked by some boys to give them a ride, a request which he willingly complied with, and neared the land and took them in; but in propelling the boat further into the river with a sprit, it by some means stuck fast and drew him out of the boat into a great depth of water.  Every effort was made to save him, but being, it is supposed, a little in drink, he was unable to struggle with the current and perished.  Verdict, "Accidentally drowned."
