A FATHER AND SON DROWNED AT LEEDS. As Mr. Thomas Hanby, grocer and provision dealer, Hunslet, was returning from a visit he had been paying to his mother, who resides at the Bank Houses, canal side, near Thwaite Mills, and just beyond the boundary of Leeds, he and his son met with their death under the following circumstances. The deceased, ia company with a youth named Calverley, were driving along the canal side in a spring cart, when the horse, from some unexplained cause, became restive, and, despite Mr. Hanby's endeavours to-restrain and direct its course, plunged into the canal with its living freight. The youth Calverley almost immediately sprang out and suc- ceeded in scrambling to the bank, when he at once gave an alarm. Meanwhile Mr. Hanby and his son, a fine boy of about eight years of age, appear to have been thrown into the middle of the canal, where he was seen holding his son in his arms above the water, but, un- happily, before assistance could be rendered they both sank, and about an hour elapsed before the bodies were recovered, when, of course, life was quite extinct. The body of the boy was recovered in the presence of his grandmother and three of his sisters, and their grief was so poignant that a most heart-rending scene ensued on the banks of the canal.
