A COLORED MAN FELL DEAD
Yesterday morning Coronor O'DONNELL held an inquest at No. 69 Hudson-Street, on the body of a respectable colored man named THOMAS HENRY SONGAN who died very suddenly, and rather mysteriously. He was employed as a steward of the packet-ship Saint Donn's, and while attending to a collation on board he was attacked with an affection of the heart--was immediately conveyed home, and when entering the premises, fell to the floor a corpse. The case was thoroughly investigated and the Jury rendered a verdict accordingly. Deceased was aged 32; a native of Delaware.
