MELANCOHLY – The Keokuk Register of last week states that on Friday the 11th inst., Mr. and Mrs. Burrows of that city, accompanied by their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Tesker and child, were crossing the Mississippi on the ice, opposite Warsaw, in a covered carriage. Before they reached the shore at Churchville, the ice gave way suddenly beneath them - the carriages and horses went down taking with them both of the women and the child, while the two men, occupying the front seat, barely escaped with their lives. – [Dav.
