The body of a man was found in the river last Saturday morning, lodged on the mill-dam. Evidence elicited at the inquest showed that it was the body of Henry Bieber, a painter by trade, aged 56 years, a native of Wessel, Prussia, and a residence of St. Louis, where his wife and two children are presently living.The deceased was last seen at 11 o'clock the night before. It is supposed that he tumbled into the river off of the suspension bridge, and acting on this suspicion the jury returned a verdict of accidental drowning, though some persons think it was a case of suicide.
