Intelligence has been received from Waitahmm to tho effect that William Trimble, u fanner, was found drowned in a small creok near his residence at seven o'clock this morning. Ho had been despondent for some time, and it is supposed to be a case of suicide. Yesterday afternoon a little boy, while standing on the footboard of the Mornington tram, fell from the footboard on to the road, and in falling came into contact with the footboard and guard-iron of the back car, which bruised his back considerably. He had a narrow escupe from being run over, but upon an examination being made by L)r Coughtrcy, who arrived shortly afterwards, it was found that there was nothing very seriously wrong with the child. Our Lawrence correspondent wires:— " An old VV'aitahuna settler named William Trimble was found dead in a creek at the back of his homestead early this morning. Deceased has been in delicate health for somo months past, and it ia supposed that he was seized by a fit and fell into the creek, which was about 2ft deep. He leaves a wife and grown up family."
