Mr. West H. Bell coroner for Rochester, on Thursday afternoon held an inquest at the Guildhall, on the body of a young bargeman named Frederick William Wicker, who was drowned on the previous day. It appears that deceased was mate of Messrs. Peters’ barge "John", of which his brother, Thos. Wicker its master. The barge was tacking down the river between Burham and Wouldham about five o’clock on Wednesday evening, and apparently deceased was caught by the main sail and knocked overboard. He disappeared at once, and life was extinct when his body was recovered. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death"
