- An inquest was held yesterday, on board the Bremen ship Armin, lying off Potts' Wharf, on view of the body of Anton Bernard Robert Rutish, aged 16 years, a Prussian sailor boy, stated to be of higher class parentage, five months out with the Armin, on his first voyage. From the evidence, it appeared that about 6 o'clock, on the previous evening deceased was on the main deck, engaged in letting down an empty bucket by the middle hatchway, when a ballast tub weighing four or five cwt., which had been employed for three or four days in shifting the Armin's ballast into the Mary R. Mitford, was brought with its usual swinging motion in the direction of the hatchway, and by hitting him precipitated him below to a depth, of about 30 feet. He sustained extensive compound fractures, was rendered senseless, and died soon after the occurrence. Verdict - Death by on accidental fall.
