DEATH REPORT. We have to record a melancholy accident which occurred yesterday afternoon. William Bennett, a child about five years old, son of Mr. Richard Bennett, of this town, was found drowned in a well, adjacent to the house. The child was missed at 3 o'clock. After a diligent search, P.C. White found the child in the well. Efforts were made to restore respiration, but without avail. We believe the well was uncovered, and hence the accident The reprehensible practice of leaving wells open is too common in Geraldton, and the wonder is, that a greater number of similar accidents do not occur.
