SWANSEA. FATAL BOATING AccIDF-T.-Mr Gasl-oin, deputy coroner, held an inquest at the Copperman's Arms, St. Thomas, on Monday, upon the body of William Seale, shipwright, who was drowned in Swansea Bay on Saturday evening.—Captain Seale, de- ceased's father, said his son was a married man. He last saw him alive on Saturday morning at four o clock.—Llewellyn Evans, a shipwright, liv- ing in Onion-street, said that he was out with the deceased in a sailing boat on Saturday afternoon. In the evening they left for the Mumbles, and made for Swansea Pier, arriving at the Extension in about 25 minutes. The wind was blowing rather hard from N.N.W. As the pier took the wind out of the sails, they thought it better to tack in instead of pulling. They tried to keep the boat away from the pier, but could not do so, as it continually went to leeward. To prevent the boat getting into the breakers they weared her, and a sharp gust of wind coming, she took the water in over the gunwale, & sank shortly afterwards. This occurred about 300 feet from the Extension. About 18 inches of the mast was above water, and witness and deceased made for it. After they got hold of the mast witness saw an oar, which he laid hold of, and drifted away. Witness asked deceased if he were all right, but before there was time to answer a swell swept over him, carrying him away. Witness was picked up by a boat, but he saw no more of deceased. He believed that Seale could swim very well. The jury returned a verdict of Accidentally drowned."
