ABERGAVENNY. Boy DROWNED.—On Monday evening, about 7 o'clock, a lad named Edward Watkins, 13 years of age, the son of a charwoman, living at Hunt's lodging-house, in Tudor-street, was drowned in the river Usk, near the town. The deceased went with another boy to Llanfoist Bridge. The boys got climbing on to some planks placed between the pillars, when one of them suddenly shifted, precipitating deceased into ths water, and he was washed under the bridge and down the stream. Mr Robert Williams, St. Ellen's road, and some children who happened to be standing on the bridge at the time, saw the accident. The poor lad cried, Save me three times, and then sank near the turn-pool. The occurrence brought hun- dreds of people to the banks of the river, but too late to render any assistance. The river was hea- vily flooded, but, notwithstanding, three men, Bob James, Charles Price, and James Knight, gal- lantly entered the water, and dived into the turn- pool, with the view of recovering the body, but without success. The same evening the river was dragged, and again on Tuesday, when the body was recovered.
