DROWNED EXCURTIONISTS -
William PACHER and Herman FRANK were drowned on Sunday in San Francisco bay by the upsetting of a Whitehall boat in which they were intending to visit the wreck of the steamer 'Costa Rica.' Under the stimulus of liberal rewards offered by their friends, besides the valuable jewelry on their persons, energetic efforts have been made for the recovery of their bodies by dragging the bay, but without success.
