An accident lately occurred at the brewery of Mr. Sietz, in Easton, Pa., Phillip Winner, one of the hands, went into the cellar, and accidentally slipped into an ale vat which had been left open for the gas to escape. He was overcome by the effects of the gas, and when removed life was extinct. The Atlantic is nearly four miles' deep off Cape Hatteras, so say the U, S. Coast Surveyors.
