      MELANCHOLY. - We regret to record the death by drowning of Capt. James Bradish, of the steamer Norma. He is supposed to have fallen from the hurricane roof of the boat on the night of Tuesday inst. The roof was wet and slippery and the night was dark. Capt. Bradish was missed, as is conjectured, about half an hour after the misfortune, when the boat was put back, and every effort made to rescue the lost commander, but in vain. The Norma was from Shreveport for this city. - Capt. Bradish had been for very many years a popular commander on the Mississippi.

      Friday, March 4, 1842

      The body of the lamented Captain Bradish, late of the Norma, was taken to Natchitoches on the steamer Rodolph, on the evening of the 21st ult. The body had been picked up floating in the river, about seven miles above that place and tied to a tree. - Capt. Wright of the Rodolph, being informed of this, procured a box and took his remains to Natchitoches. The jury rendered a verdict that the deceased came to his death by falling from the deck of the steamboat Norma, about the 1st of January last. 

      His remains were followed to the grave by a large number of citizens.

      *Another account of the accident in The Baltimore Sun of Jan. 26, 1842, gave the date of the drowning as January 14.
