Three Young Men Drowned in the Orwell. —A painful affair happened on the river Orwell, at Ipswich, on Sunday evening between eight and nine. A party of five—Charles Ivirby (a waterman), William Podd and Partridge Podd (brothers), Herbert Bernett, and Samuel Barber, landlord of the Beehive Tap, Ips- wich-had pulled to the Ostrich, a pleasant river-side house. They stopped there but a short time, and had three pots of beer between them. With the exception of Partridge Podd, tho party started for home, and when off Hog Island, within half a mile of the Dock Promenade, at Ipswich, the boat, through Ivirby's getting up, was upset. Barber fortunately clung to the boat, and was rescued by a man named Church- man, on board the mud engine not far oft', and taken ashore; the other three were drowned. Information was at once given of the accident, and Podd's body was found between eight and nine on Monday morn- ing, and the other two bodies a little later. Although the bodies had been in the water but a. short time, their faces were quite mutilated by the crabs. Kirby leaves a wife and five children.
