Drowning of a Child.

We inadvertently omitted to state the misfortune of Mr. W. A. Deweese who lost his child, about fifteen months old, by drowning, on the 18th ultimo.  Mr. Deweese owns the old ferry known as Puckett’s, across the Etowah river about two miles from town, and his residence is about fifty yards there from.  Some one had left the gate open and the child passed out, made its way to the river and is supposed got on the flat and fell overboard and drowned.  We sympathize with Mr. Deweese and his wife.
