A Man Drowned.

We learn from a Correspondent that on Tuesday night, the 16th inst., a man named BENJAMIN FEECUS, a hand employed on the lime-boat of Messrs. CALLAN & RICHTER, was drowned at the Four Locks in this county. The facts appear to be these:-He had gone ahead of the boat to see if the lock was ready, and was standing on the back wall as the boat entered the lock; he then got on the boat and stepped on a small lose latch, which gave way, and he fell head foremost into the lock, and after rising once, sunk to the bottom. It was fully three-quarters of an hour before he could be taken out of the water, when every thing was done that could be to restore him, but in vain. He was a very steady, industrious young man, and liked by all who knew him. It is said his friends live in Franklin County, Pa.
