Alexander Baxter drowned

On Wednesday morning last, as Alexander Baxter, a fisherman, was returning from fishing in a small yawl, it ws upset by a swell on the bar, and he was unfortunately drowned - having sunk at the very time when one of the men in a coble, which had pushed off to his assistance, was reaching out his hand to rescue him from his impending fate.
