INQUEST.

On Wednesday evening an inquest was held at the "Labour in Vain," in North-lane, Canterbury, before T. Delasaux, Esq., on the body of Edward Neward, aged sixty-five years, a bricklayer, who had been lodging at the above house for a short time past, and who was, early that morning, found dead in his bed by a fellow lodger; who stated in his evidence before the jury, that the deceased, after having ate a hearty supper of fried plaice on Tuesday evening, went to bed, and soon after was attacked with violent vomiting. He complained of severe pains in his head, arms, and chest, but after some time apparently went to sleep, and between four and five o'clock was found a corpse.

Verdict, "Natural death."
