Another Death at Coney Island

INQUEST AT CONEY ISLAND.--Coroner Donly, of Gravesend, held an inquest yesterday afternoon on the body of a man found floating in the water, near the wharf, at Coney Island Point. Deceased was apparently about 30 years old, dark brown hair, and was dressed in check shirt, blue over-alls, cotton socks, and coarse shoes. It is supposed the body has been in the water only a few days. There were no papers or other articles found in his possession by which he could be identified. Verdict, death from some cause or causes to the jury unknown.--The remains were conveyed to Flatbush for interment. Further particulars may be had by applying to the Coroner, at his store in the village of Gravesend, L. I.
