DROWNED - We regret to announce that the person unfortunately drowned at the mouth of the stream five miles below this city, and swept into the Missouri river, early last week, is proved to have been Mr. William H. Parks, of Omaha City, brother of our fellow townsman, George Parks. He was returning from Nebraska City on horseback when the sad accident occurred. His body has not yet been recovered, and his friends will liberally reward any person who will find it and give them notice at this place. - His height was about 5 feet 10 inches, of medium size, light complexion, light hair and whiskers, and had on a light colored overcoat- other clothes not remembered.
