In the Mississippi River, on Wednesday, the 22d ult., Mr. L.T. Judd and Mr. Francis Clark, both residents of this county. They left Clayton about dark on the above day, to go to some place near Guttenberg, by way of the river, with a span of hourses and sleigh. The horses and sleigh were found about two miles below French Town, and about half a mile below where they broke into the river. Some portion of the harness was cut, which would indicate that one or both had made an attempt to rescue the horses, and were drowned in doing so. Mr. Clark was formerly a resident of Brasher, St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., and Mr. Judd of Jersey Co., Ill.
