DEAD BODY AFLOAT. – The dead body of a nude young person was seen on Sunday last, near Drewry’s Bluff, by passengers on the steamer Isaac Bell while on her outward trip. It is presumed to be that of the youth Joseph Winston, who was drowned while bathing one day last week, near Napper’s rock, just below Mayo’s bridge.
