HOWSON, POSTMASTER.— The inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood will regret to hear that Mr -HowL;on, poqtmaster,' has announced his intention to the authorities to; resign the office of postmaster of Wrexbam. Mr Howson's health has latterly not been very good, and his eyesight has seriously suffered from the nature of his arduous duties. He has been '33 yeara in the service, and has fairly earned his right to the retiring allowance. During his period of service in this town, we can speak with con- fidence and from personal experience, coining into contact with .the department probably as much as any firm in the town, and we can say of Mr -How- son that he has always been ready to oblige as far as the regulations and exigencies of the service allowed, and to prevent, if possible, delays and mistakes, and when such happened he 'would duly investigate-so as to prevent their recurrence. We trust that in-so important-tin office an experienced person will be selected to succeed Mr Howson, and feel sure that if Mr Broster, the senior clerk, were appointed, the selection would give general satisfac- tion. SUSPICIONS DEATH OF AN INFANT.— Mr Thel- wall held an enquiry at the Nag's Head Inn, on Monday, as -to the death of a newly-born male child, three weeks old, the son of -Jonathan Hughes, le, Picton-terrece, Tuttle-street. The mother was sworn, and stated that oiasaturday night, she *went to bed about eleven o'clock, leaving her husband, who was drunk, in the kit- chen. About three o'clock in the morning she was awoke by the screaming of the child, and she got up and went downstairs. A fire was lighted, and "cinder" tea was given to the deceased, who, however, died whilst in her arms. She was of opinion that it had died from convulsions. In reply to the coroner, the mother said she was perfectly-sober when she retired. After hearing the evideoce given by :the mother of the hus- band, who was present when the child died, the coroner said he regarded.the case as very serious, and after some consideration it was decided to adjourn the iaquest, so that a post mortem exami- nation might be made. The enquiry was re- opened yesterday (Friday) morning. The mother of the child was recalled, and repeated her evidence, stroogly denying that she had ever given her infant anything with the exception of a little castor oiband cinder" tea. She admitted that on Wednesday week she took off the deceased's clothing to wash it, and she put it in a shawl, and I she believed it then canght.a cold.-Jane ipowell saw the mother and her child in the town, between nine and ten o'clock on Saturday night, and she was then sober. Witness, early on Snuday morning, was called by the mether, and she went to see the child in about half an hour afterwards. It 4-as then dead, in its mother's arms.—Dr. Divios was sworn, and stated that on Tuesday he had made a post ator4em examination of the -de- ceased. There were mo marks of 4xternaLl violence on the,body, bat there was some little lividity of skin .,siieut the lips, face and head. The organs were healthy, with the exception of the lurgs whichrwere congested. The blood.was more fluid, than was natural after death, and that might arise from narcotic poisoning. It sometimes arose; from other causes, bat that was the most common consilience of narcotic poisoning. No other part of the body was in an abnormal condition, everything 4ase being natural and healthy. In narcotic poisoning there was lividity of the whole body, but .it <was not so in .thepresent instance. There were no symptoms of convulsions, because if the child, died from convadsiews the brain would have been congested, which ms not the case. He had heard the evidence of the witnesses, but there was nothing in ikeir statements which would posi- tively show that ;the child had dt&d from narcotic poisoning. The cause of death was congestion of the lungs, bat how produced there was no evidence tc,show, although fit might have been brought on hy cold. He wished to inform the J ury that when the woman was conRned he was sent for. She had act a bed, nor even a bit of straw to lie upon, and be supposed she must have been confined on the floor. He arrived in about a couple of hours, after being sent for, and he then found her sitting; on a stool by the fire. He had been informed that: no provision had been made for the baby, which was kept laite naked until the neighbours brought, in some clothes. He had ;at once ordered a bed to be provided for her at the expense of the parish. — The Coroner: And she stated that her husband was receiving 18s. a week.—In addressing the jury, the Cotoner said they bad now satisfactory evidence as to the cause of death, although there was some difficulty in saying what had produced congestions of the lungs. Dr. Davies had stated that there were symptoms consistent with narcotic poisoning, but yet there were symptoms of death from other causes. A woman might poison all her children with laudanum, but unless all the symp- toms connected with the poisoning were fully shown, there was some difficulty in detecting the real cause of death. Bat supposing that it had been shown that narcotics had been administered, they would have to prove that the mother had done so wilfully with the intention of killing her child. —The jury returned a verdict that the deceased had died from congestion of the lungs, but by what cause produced there was no evidence to show.
